There is a choice that one must make

About the path that each shall take

And of the road that lies ahead

With twists and gaps and bumps instead.

Our trail through life is seldom smoothed

It’s crammed with ruts and slightly grooved

Where we who struggle on alone

Will stumble o’er both rock and stone.

Tis best remembering to swerve

When we approach curve uopn curve

This course we’ve taken is intense

But God’s our Help and our Defense !

 

FATHERS’ DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/17

To all the men we have adored

Our fathers, sons and blessed Lord

The uncles all who spared us space

And grandpapas that kissed each face

Who filled in for each missing dad

In every empty place we had.

This  family of kindly men

Who came to bat, again, again

And never once did let us down

Changing to laughter every frown

Whoever dreamt that we might find

Some other men to be this kind

Hard to accept as truth maybe

Love’s more than just paternity !

I’m just so tired of all this pain

I  shall never be alright again

Seems every joint has its own complaint

What an ugly picture time does paint !

I won’t give in, that is not my style

I’ve plowed through this with a glued-on smile

Guess I’ll start the process right away

Can’t afford to waste another day.

Forgive me Lord,  I’ve forgotten how

To undo this pain and need help now !

 

 

MOST GRATEFULLY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/02

Oh how I wish that there might be

An angel watching over me

To keep my life safe from great harm

Or when I err, sound an alarm.

Perhaps an angel on standby

To comfort me if I should cry

Or if the night is extra bold,

Warm hands to shield me from the cold.

Perchance if I wish hard enough

The path ahead won’t be so rough,

Whatever help God offers me

I shall accept most gratefully !

 

 

TEACH SOME MANNERS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/18

The dampness seeps inside the glass

And seems to weep along the pane

A labyrinth of life’s morass

Attacking all, again, again.

Oh would that we might rule the path

And currents that control the Main

With the power like our God hath

To teach some manners to the rain !

 

OUR FATHER ( 2018 ) 2018/05/05

This is the first I can recall

I find my back against the wall

It all seems strange with no debrief

There is scant time to seek relief.

We flounder in life’s deep morass

Without the aid of skill or class

I wonder what the future brings

Along with normal happenings.

Shall we survive until the end

In need of courage and a friend

Let’s say the prayer we all know well

And to the Lord our wishes tell !

Lord, I won’t sing this song once more

It’s not the same as ’twas before

Our innocence has disappeared

Perhaps it’s worse than what I feared !

I do not recognize the score

And don’t know what we’re fighting for

I can’t determine what to do

We need Your help, please send a clue !
