A tender thought, a gentle kiss

Remembrance of the moment’s bliss

A kindly word, instant treasure

Memories of constant pleasure

These are results of many dreams

That culminate in joyous scenes.

Our world writhes in much angst and pain

It begs such effort to contain

We need more care to educate

And simple souls to formulate

A pattern of life’s give and take

As we weave through its make or break !

 

THIS IS HIS SHOT ( 2018 ) 2018/04/22

An early light knifes through the dark

The air is still and calmly stark

A silence rises from the ground

One can’t discern a single sound.

Before the morning does begin

There is a chill that settles in

Starting at toes, it makes the trip

To limbs and then to fingertips !

How much longer must all await

To learn the judgement of our fate

In truth we know what we have got

God is the Judge, this is His shot !

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 !

 

OPEN ALL OUR EYES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/20

I often think this plan we’ve made

Needs lots of help, a large band-aid

Like an old game we used to play

To whisk our idle hours away.

Remember this now if you please

When you’re on “Broadway” take your ease

You do not have to go to “jail”

Just whiz on by, do not post bail.

However when you pause on GO

Make ready for the final blow

For life is one great big surprise

It’s meant to open all our eyes !

Unhappiness we cannot bear

Because of sadness we all share,

Please help us Lord to lift our wings

While searching for life’s sweeter things !

 

EACH NIGHT AND DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/18

The dark we’ve seen is bleak and bold

Its purpose is too bare and cold

This world we live in lacks the care

Who opts to choose to reside there ?

Where does one go to seek a life

When all about face nought but strife

It’s not too late there’s still some time

To save us from such godless crime ?

There is one place that we may hide

To keep us free from fears outside,

Tis only God who knows the way

To guide our lives both night and day !

 

 

UNTIL THE END ( 2018 ) 2018/04/17

Before You grew to be quite tall

Sweet Jesus, when You were still small

What kind of life was it You led

When first arising from Your bed ?

We know at twelve You went to Shul

There questioned and reviewed God’s rule

To keep Your faith You did atone

Though in Your trial You stood alone.

Oh Son of God, You did not fail

Your life we shall forever hail

You are our Hero and our Friend

It shall be so until the end !
