We need a hero, one worth waiting for

To warm up our hearts and open each door

We need memories to keep love alive

Supplying reason for us to survive.

We need a leader to tell us what’s true

To rally our faith for red, white and blue

We need a hero to stand with us now

To give us access to heaven somehow !

There is this place so faraway

Where angels and God’s cherubs play

It’s full of dreams and atmosphere

And lots of love and laughs and cheer

A perfect  spot we cannot share

Until our Lord invites us there !

There is a place just above Nod

Where everyone has faith in God,

The children and the angels too

Are in accord with me and you

They say their prayers and read God’s book

And good deeds glow where e’er you look.

Oh how I wish that I could be

A member of that colony

Perhaps if I try very hard

One day I too may bide with God !

 

 

 

THE SEASIDE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/23

The ocean’s full of frothy foam

That gathers under heaven’s dome

It splashes on the sandy shores

Receding into seaside floors

The seagulls exercise their wings

The pigeon struts and coos and sings

The osprey stretches from its perch

Expanding vision in his search !

 

 

ON THE SCENE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/30

I think that I have always been

A child of God who prays to win

The chance to walk above the clouds

Where angels gather into crowds.

I’d roam around and seek to find

A pathway that must surely wind

Along the road up to the gate

Where Jesus’ own disciples wait.

If I should act just like a lamb

And none would notice who I am

Perhaps that might be ever keen

I could be there right on the scene !

 

 

 

 

I WONDER ( 2015 ) 2015/09/20

I hear those church bells loud and clear

The peals fall sweetly on the ear

I wonder if the Lord above

Finds this a simple show of love ?

When all the choir voices raise

Their hymns to God in grateful praise

I wonder if their thrilling sound

Will reach His ear while heaven bound ?

 

HEAVEN’S GATE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/16

I envy not your lives to come

Now that my own is almost done

I would not walk this way again

To feel the loss or hide the pain.

I thank our Lord my time has passed

I know not how my heart did last

And move to that which is beyond

Without a will to carry on.

Somewhere within this universe

Bide powers that are too perverse

They creep and crawl and lie in wait

To bar our way through heaven’s gate !
