The Ides of March have come and gone

And gave us nought to wish upon

We are defeated and undone

With no place left for us to run.

How shall we make our way today

When there’s no place to hide away

Surrender is the one true path

To offer God all that we hath !

The night is cool, the air is sweet

God’s vernal world lies at our feet

Each dried up twig now sports new leaf

The winter’s gone to our relief

Our barren coast revives once more

With summer dreams in full encore.

How glad am I to feel awake

And comprehend just what’s at stake

This life we have is all we need

Let’s thank the Lord and pay Him heed

As He’s the answer to all prayer

Oh blessed Lord, be always there !

There was a dream that I once had

Which made my memories so glad

Long time ago when I was young

And all my hopes were yet unsung

The energy still kept its  charm

And laughter held no great alarm.

Tis time for freedom and for joy

When all life’s pleasures are employed

Oh, would that God was always there

To hear our ever grateful prayer

And see us through until the end

He is our true and constant friend !

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 !

There’s not a day that passes by

When each one’s dream may bid goodbye

There’s not  a night without a star

Reminding us how near or far

The journey of our lives will be

In terms of our expectancy.

For we are here a short time all

Without control o’er win or fall

It is the Master of our fate

Who knows our exit and its date !

Tis strange there is no rest at all

For those who stumble or who fall

Or those who’ve willed their lifetime call

To carry someone else’s ball !

Before I entered in life’s maze

I’d been alive a thousand days

I walked and talked and learned to sing

Good manners came with everything.

My mother,  she was but sixteen

Had never been a high school queen

She was my best friend my whole life

Through happy days and those of strife.

The hard times came, then went away

But left the scars of yesterday

Sometimes when I do quiet sit

Those memories may be relit.

I’ve often wondered how we did

When daddy died, I was a kid

Today the days just seem to fly

I must learn now to say goodbye !
