REBUKE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/16

There  is  a  sound  that  I  can  hear

It  seems  to  whisper  in  the  ear

Is  it  the  wind  that  steals  about

With  soft  whispers  and  ne’er  a  shout  ?

What  must  I  do  to  make  it  clear

That  God’s  rebuke  is  all I  fear  ?

 

WHEN ? ( 2020 ) 2020/06/13

We’re  standing  in  a line  where  we must  wait

Tis  not  a  journey  we  anticipate

The  day  is  not  too sunny  nor  too  cool

Nor  meant  to  be a  space  for  fake  or  fool

So   here  we  stand  before  God’s  final  gate

And  wonder  how  much  longer  is  the  date

Before  we enter  into  paradise

Where  we’ll  no  longer  suffer  Satan’s  lies !

We  view  our  lives  through  tainted  eyes

Because  this  world  is  bathed  in  lies

Real  faith  exists  in  truth  alone

Since  hearts  of  men  oftimes  are stone.

Though  many  strong  are  honor  bred

While  others  bask  in  shade  instead,

How  sad that  we  discover  late

Powers  we  hold  o’er  our own  fate  !

 

 

REAPPEAR ( 2020 ) 2020/03/15

Oh  sad the day  the Christ did die

And  bid this world  His last goodbye

He  suffered there  upon the cross

While  the whole world  endured the loss.

God’s  darkness fell  that distant day

And  since then  has not passed away

We’re  ready Lord,  and waiting here

For  You at last  to reappear !

AMEN.

 

 

THE TRUTH IS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/09

Half  hidden here  behind the eye

Of  all the  stress now whizzing  by

Many  events  do come and go

Disclose  or hide  facts  we need know.

Time  will invoke  the common sense

Grownups  require  in their  defense

However  will  the youth  now learn

The  value of  each truth  discerned  ?

For  without  truth how  shall one find

The  straightest  path to  help unwind

The  answer  is,  twill  always  be

The  truth alone  shall set us free  !

 

 

 

THE RIGHT TRACK ( 2019 ) 2019/12/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:24 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There’s been a moment I recall

A moment that came first of all

Before we challenged all the rules

And listened to the sound of fools

When sense was part of every day

And kindly words were ours to say

Tis time to get our values back

And keep us all on a right track !

 

MY OBSERVATION ( 2019 ) 2019/12/07

While  Congress  prances all around

Our  troops lay  dying on the ground

But  little care do  they eschew

That  comforts any  other view

There  is a God  we must  believe

Who  soon our honor  will retrieve  !

 

PLEASE PASS THIS ON.

 

DOUBTS AND FEARS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/30

Dreams  are part of each one’s life scheme

For  none exists  without  some dream

The  good,   the bad,  the  discontent

Have  dreamt  those that from God  are sent.

The  Good Book  tells  tale after  tale

Of  those  angels  that  are  regaled

The  simplest  babe  while fast  asleep

Reacts  to dreams  the while he  sleeps.

No  one  eludes  reality

Of  this  wide world  of  mystery

Through  which  all fears  do ever  wind,

The  place where  our doubts  are confined !

 

 

WHAT WE’VE SEEN ( 2019 ) 2019/11/24

Without  a word,  where would we be

If   this world  found it’s  harmony,

Ten  thousand years  seems time enough

To  figure out  the  going’s  rough.

I’ll  never  understand  the why

The  choice  is not  to live  or die,

But  can we hope or  chance to  dream

That  life holds  more than  what we’ve seen !

 

VICTORY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/11

I  hear the sound  of martial strains

A  proud  familiar  old refrain

One echoing  across  the plains

That tell my heart  believe again.

This  nation  bound  in history

Which fought against cruel  infamies

Won  claim  to fame and  victory

That  bested oceans and the seas !

 

HAPPY 244TH !

Oh precious Lamb, You are so sweet

This world is kneeling at Your feet

You are the world’s bright shining Star

All that we hope and dream You are.

The times we knew are fading fast

Have we the stamina to last,

What must we do to prove to You,

Praise God and honor all You do !

 

 

 

 

MY DESTINY ( 2019 ) 2019/08/08

Now  I have  been a child  of  God at  every  blessed  age

And  I have lived  in awe of  Him  through  every  growing  stage

I’ve hoped  and wished and  dreamt that  He will hear my urgent  plea

Oh  gracious  Lord,  I love  You so,  please be  my  destiny !

 

 

WOUNDED WARRIOR ( 2019 ) 2019/08/06

A little child  did pray to God

“Please bring my daddy home to me

Without him here our lives are hard

He fought a war to set us free “.

This message went upon its way

Just hoping  that none will forget

To send that daddy home  to stay

Before their  joy  becomes regret !

 

HONOR IS FOREVER ( 2019 ) 2019/06/12

Memories  last  forever, we  can’t  forget

Years  may  disappear  so  much to our regret

There gleaming through a twilight that will not set

If  we  chance remember with  no  ending yet !

 

AMEN.

 

PRINCIPLES ( 2019 ) 2019/05/06

How I’d like to think we’re all the same

That we all possess the selfsame aim

That our instincts tell us what’s correct

And the principles we must expect,

That we live our lives in manner strong

In a place in which respect belongs,

That we honor truth and liberty

In a world wherein all men are free !

I see the flag, it flies on high

Its standards reaching for the sky

The wind whips round its colors bright

Tis true it is an awesome sight.

There is a chill runs down my spine

Convincing me that we’ll be fine

Quite sure each time I fall asleep

I have these promises to keep.

And if I die before I wake

There is a vow you must not break

Command  my ashes to be spread

Along the shore aft I am dead !

The world outside is dark and grim

I beg You Lord, please let me in

It matters not what I shall eat

Or whom it  is that I may meet.

Tis only in the shadow of

Your all consuming constant love

That all my hopes and dreams can be

Some part of life’s reality

I promise now that I will do

What e’er You wish that pleases You !

 

AMEN.

 

HUMAN DIGNITY ( 2018 ) 2018/12/08

So many words are ever sweet

And rest in bundles at my feet

Syllables echoed on my ear

The sound of which I yearn to hear.

I do enjoy the accolades

Of ages past, forgotten days,

When men of words would have their sway

And you and I might nod “hooray”

For those of old much braver be

To speak for human dignity !

 

 

GOD IS THERE FOR YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/11/02

I pine for you my precious child

You weathered life both harsh and mild

When you were young you were so sweet

You truly were your mommy’s treat.

An angel child from heaven sent

Where helping others was your bent

Along the way your life it changed

Your ideas all, how far they ranged.

From deep sea diving to the ice

You did it all and made it nice

Good husband, father, brother too

Your great big world was fond of you.

You never lost your faith in God

Especially when life got hard

We’ll pray that God is there for you

And that His love will follow through !

It matters not where you are from

The lower class or high income,

The price has always been the same

A sense of honor, your good name !

Respect for elders, kindly deeds

Concern for others and their needs

The fact that truth is scoring high

Why would another tell a lie ?

If words are all that one has got

What else is there if one is not ?

Tis sad to note that common man

Has more to hide than less to plan

God knows us all and what we do

No secrets here, not me, not you!

 

PAST THE END ( 2018 ) 2018/10/22

Tis soon the dawn, the day begins

As time is short, nobody wins

The loser fades away discreet

Then who’s left standing on his feet  ?

All life is not peaches and cream

Fair or honest, a piper’s dream

While truth gets lost along the way

Is no one there who’ll have a say ?

Remember, only God is just

And worthy of our total trust

He is the Hero and the Friend

Who bides with each far past the end !

 

 

HOME OF THE FREE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/27

Our America had its birth you know

Over two hundred forty years ago

Through the thunder, lightning and fire we grew

Into this nation of red, white and blue

In the rockets great glare we won the fight

And created a star that shines so bright.

With welcoming heart and book in her hand

The Lady in Green in the harbor stands

As she holds the torch for all who will see

This home of the brave and land of the free !

See our blest flag at half staff flown

Whence seeds of valor there were grown

To honor heroes who have died

For God and man and nation’s pride !

AMEN.

There is this call that I now hear

It happens every time each year

The bells peal out and my heart cries

Takes all my strength to face goodbyes !

There is no way I can convey

The sadness that I feel this day

So many wars for all those boys

Who early left their childhood toys

To wear that uniform each chose

Before their lives came to a close.

So be it blue or white or green

Brown, khaki, tan or in between

Whatever color works for you

They fought and died, red, white and blue !

THIS IN MEMORIAM  1776 – 2018

 

 

 

OH ABSALOM ( 2018 ) 2018/05/09

Sometimes the world is full of gloom

Its sadness darkens every room

The seasons change, they come and go

From springtime’s warmth to winter’s snow.

Days roll on by with no account

Midst tears and sighs in great amount

And justice finds it needs a place

To challenge evil’s false embrace.

What was has been and is no more

Once lost will never be restored

The saddest words that one can say

Oh Absalom, you’ve gone astray !

 

 

NO COWARD IN VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/27

I sailed down mem’ry lane today

Reviewing things that we might say

And thought about it long and hard

I wonder, have you embraced God ?

Since you and I did not agree

On ways each handled destiny

I’d like to think we shared a view

Of all that would be right to do.

Now you’ve been gone for quite awhile

You earned your honor hero style

This is one lesson you’ve taught me

There’s  no coward in victory !

When I look up into the sky

So full of creatures that do fly

Where images that catch my eye

May mix with clouds here passing by.

Imagination can’t restore

What it is we are searching for

That special something most adore

A secret gift behind each door.

The world is full of guile and guise

Beneath the sea, above the skies

We live in times of great disguise

Truth is hidden amongst the lies !

We are the home of heroes, every color, every size

But who are those now making this effort to minimize ?

It’s been our own courageous patriots who’ve built this land

A place where citizens can work together hand in hand

This homeland where the people have the freedom and the choice

To fly the flag, sing the song, say the pledge or raise their voice !
