GREAT DANGER ( 2020 ) 2020/06/01

What is this madness that we face

That’s taking up our total space

There is great danger spreading here

A danger that we all must fear.

Beware, because the Devil’s come

He is destroying everyone

This is a warning that’s come late

When ever will this hate abate ?

Oh Blessed Lord, we beg You please

Observe Your children on their knees

Reach out to all who are in pain

To save them from this world insane !

What would You do to save us from

The storm we know is soon to come

How will You guard us, help us rise

Above this hell that’s in disguise ?

We need You now, teach us to care

That we may all Your wisdom share !

 

HELP NEEDED ( 2020 ) 2020/03/20

Angels  from heaven  are tapping  on my door

I’m  not  upset  cause  I’ve heard  them tap  before

I  comprehend their  job  and  what must be done

I  sure could  use  hands on   with  some help for fun !

Our Father who abides on high

His wisdom reigns down from the sky

Have pity on the earth below

Where man and beast do ebb and flow

We crave Your Help and Tender Care

For soon there will be nothing there.

If man could but sustain his faith

Arising o’er the power of wraith

To triumph and reclaim his right

Hence revel in his God’s delight

Achieve that goal before one dies

Upon God’s help whence love resides !

 

THERE IS NO CURE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/11

This pain  I feel,  unending  bad

So  far the worst of what I’ve had

I  don’t know how  to stop the ache

It’s  all too real,  no space for  fake.

Somehow  I have  to clear my mind

And  beg of God,  His peace to find

What  is the next that I must do

I  need a moment  to think  through.

The  road ahead  is  blank and dim

I  can’t  proceed,  not without  Him

I’m lost  alone without  a cure

The  end  draws near  of this I’m  sure

God  is my anchor  tried and true

To  Him,  I’ll  be one of His  crew !

The  time for  dreaming is now done

Let’s  raise our glasses  one by one

To  give a toast and pledge  that we

Shall  make it to  eternity !

The dark of night moves in with ease

And snuggles till the morning  breeze

The angels of the night will fade

And rest until the evening shade.

The dawn arrives to welcome day

The world’s  alive and kneels to pray

God bless us all and make us whole

Improve our times and save our soul !

Because I was  and am  no more

Before all hope  slips out the door

And leaves  me here out  on my own

With what I fear is yet  unknown

I beg You,  Lord,  bide with  me still

Until  I’ve learned to  do His will !

 

SEEKING DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/28

How grand  is it to  seek one’s dream

Far better than  it mayhaps  seem

For dreams are  wishes not yet true

Without a boost  from  me or you.

Tis  quite okay  to ponder why

Some dreams may  fade and  often die

Perhaps  that strength required to win

Needs faith in God  to help begin !

 

 

 

 

STAND UP AND LEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/08/24

The years  have been passing,  one by one

Since this world we  live in  has begun

Now that’s a  longtime by  anyone’s gauge

Getting us  all to  setup  the  stage.

So now  here we  are ready to go

Grasping  our dreams  and  hoping  to grow,

Give  us a boost and  help us succeed

Grant us the  strength to standup and lead !

 

 

 

I LOVE ANGELS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/21

I have  met an angel in  my dreams

Who’s more helpful than an angel seems

All shapes and sizes is how they come

Short and tall, while slim or stout are some.

An  angel is a  child  of the Lord

Whose aim is true and of God’s accord

I’d  love an angel for  my best friend

Cause they’ll be there till the very  end !

 

 

TO OPEN DOORS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/16

Seems  I’ve not  known the   comfort  of

A world  steeped in God’s  peace and love

There’s ne’er a day to  pass us by

Without  excuse for one to try

I’ve wished so long to understand

It takes more than a sleight of hand.

We need some hope that we may win

A fair chance to  again  begin

Or knowledge where the pitfalls are

Before we  try to  reach  a star

What is it we are  searching for,

God’s  magic touch to open  doors ?

Oh my dear child, what can I do

To be of aid and help to you

Please tell me what it is you need

I’ll try to follow as you lead.

Tis time for you to stand up tall

Assume your burden ere you fall

Our God is Witness, heed His word

What e’er is spoke we all have heard !

 

HIS MERCY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/30

For all the dreams that we have dreamt

And all the wishes we have sent

With all the hope that we can raise

And all the prayers full of great praise

May God above hear our just plea

And include us in His mercy !

 

INTO THE BREECH ( 2019 ) 2019/05/28

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:17 am

Now once again into the breech

To learn the lessons life must teach

A change of pace or brusque reply

To say that we shall get on by.

Tomorrow’s not too far away.

Let’s ask  the Lord we’d like to stay

And in these precious moments left

We’ll  make our peace or are bereft !

 

NO MORE PAIN ( 2019 ) 2019/05/12

Help me,  oh Lord, to find the way

Back home to You at end of day

Give me the strength to carry on

When all my energy seems gone

Show me the path that leads to peace

Where all my pain at last will cease !

 

JUST HISTORY ( 2019 ) 2019/04/12

It seems our nation’s drowning fast

The world at large appears aghast

Oh, tell us please what can we do

To save ourselves and cleave to You ?

Our time is slipping past too soon

The path ahead leads but to ruin

Let’s say a prayer that this won’t be

Another page in history !

 

 

HE IS NOT BLIND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/06

Good morning world, I’ve come to say

The Lord gives us another day

A day to do what e’er we choose

A day to win, a day to lose.

And if we’re smart we’ll use it well

That others may His story tell

And so it moves us closer to

His day of judgement tried and true.

It matters much our real intent

Like how our wisdom has been spent

And have helped our fellow man

The best as many of us can.

Our God is fair, unerring kind

But to our faults He is not blind !

 

JUST FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/12/16

Tags: , , , , ,

I’ve often thought how sad it is

To figure out what’s mine, what’s his

This world was not born yesterday

Nor will its strength fade fast away

But lingers long upon the mind

To seek the answer we need find.

Among those stars in distant sky

There bides a path that each must ply

And as the trail now waxes old

Before its impetus grows cold

Let’s bind our fears and make new friends

Learn how the final story ends !

 

EACH ONE’S CHOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/07

My heart is torn, my values scorned

I’ve courage strong with hope reborn

Unsteady though it be,  I teach

Of this new world I hope to reach

What honors there that one may see

Without a  false humility ?

Point me the way to valor earn

Help me to find my great concern

Do as You will on heav’n and earth

Show me Lord how to use my worth !

 

GIFTS FROM YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/09/25

Whatever I am, dear Lord, I know

I owe it to You, You’ve made it so

You are the stars and the skies they’re in

With clouds above at Your every whim.

The rainbows we glimpse with color bright

A moon o’erhead on the starlit night

You are the dreams we are waiting for

The hopes and wishes and plans galore

That do fill our hearts and minds with glee

And create Your world this sight to see.

The birds and trees, the flowers that bloom

Assorted odors filling each room

The snow and rain, the wind as it blew

All of our treasures are gifts from You !

 

OUT OF CHAOS, ORDER.  AMEN.

 

 

 

 

OUR BURDEN BEAR ( 2018 ) 2018/09/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:40 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is this part of me that cries

As tales of sadness doth arise

Or when someone has a great need

To find some peace or to succeed.

We’ll seek a measure to impart

Our loving help for ailing heart

Perhaps one moment to remind

Each other that we should be kind.

There are these special words we’ll keep

That as ye sow thus shall ye reap

Always remember He’ll be there

To help us each our burden bear !

 

 

IT’S NOT TOO LATE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/03

My heart is heavy with the weight

That this world’s lost and in a state

Beyond its condemnation date

Perhaps, dear Lord it’s not too late !

The chance exists we may survive

And keep our hope and dreams alive

Your help and aid would earth revive

As mankind learns once more to thrive !

 

 

 

MAKE A CHOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:26 am
Tags: , , , , ,

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 !

 

 

NEED HELP NOW ( 2018 ) 2018/06/12

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 !
