HEREDITY ? ( 2020 ) 2020/05/26

There is a world that waits for me

Somewhere across God’s great blue sea

A place where anger can’t exist

And only kindness does persist.

But I’m not sure if I can wait

To make the journey to that Gate

Because my world is falling down

And crushing kindness to the ground.

What shall I do, how can this be

Is this the new heredity ?

Oh Gracious Lord, remember me

For only You can set me free !

There’s  a tugging on my heartstrings

The  sound of Christmas music brings

Old  memories that fill my  brain

Are  here to haunt me  once again.

I  can’t  forget the times long gone

Those  dreams that we depended on

How  much time have we  yet to wait

Before  we meet at Heaven’s  Gate ?



BLESSING OF HIS LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/06/04

Of all the words that have been writ

There is but one  that covers it

Of all the feelings man does know

There is but one that all must show

For love it  is that grows and glows

Straight from our minds unto our toes

And brings to each that God-like worth

The blessings of His love on earth !

Oh, Child of God, so pure and sweet

The earth paid homage at your feet

Great wars were fought to save Your name

Your Image garners world wide fame.

You are the Sum of what we are

Yet, You have never travelled far

How wonderous that You should be

The Key to God’s eternity !


WE NEED A HERO ( 2018 ) 2018/04/14

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 !



TO BIDE WITH GOD ( 2017 ) 2017/09/04

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 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 !


SHOW AND TELL ( 2015 ) 2015/02/08

If I were an angel above the world so high

I’d fly from cloud to cloud so I could learn to spy

And seek out all the secrets of the earth below

Searching rivers for their source watching how they flow.

To touch each mountain top where no one dares to live

See the ocean’s ebb and flow acting like a sieve,

Imagining what happens underneath the seas

Or hillsides by the millions lush with assorted trees.

God’s world is such perfection like a magic spell

All He does is perfect, this is His show and tell !


HEAVEN’S DOOR ( 2014 ) 2014/12/26

I still remember Christmas Day

That little church seems far away

I miss the sound of choir sing

Sweet children’s voices caroling.

Pleasant whispers from the vestry

The kindly way things used to be

Just a piece of celestial air

Around the bend and up the stair,

One short step that’s not too much more

We are outside of Heaven’s door !
