At  times  I  try so very hard

For  all my sadness to discard

To smile and bring my life on track

And pray to lure  good humor back.

Our  lives  are but a  series of

Moments of fear,  joy,  tears and  love

However  tough  the times  may be

It’s  always  just  temporary  !

May the Lord above look down on me

With kindness and generosity

May He clasp my hand through darkest night

And save my soul from old Satan’s might

May His love warm me when it is cold

And cushion my steps aft I’ve grown old !

AMEN.

The  weather’s so much colder now

The snow is smothering each bough

A  film of icy  crystal  grows

Across  each piece of glass that shows.

The  ground is heaped to ankle high

As  swirling white falls from the sky

The  air is quiet  not a sound

The  peace of God  is all around.

There’s  not a bird  left in the air

All  hide themselves  in secret lair

They’ve tucked their beaks under their wings

And  waken when  the church  bell rings !

Throughout  my youth  and  ageing years

I’ve  known the  company  of tears

My  rainbow has  appeared at last

The  final role  my life has  cast.

I’m  still on hold,  accepting too

As  life has taught  me what to do

I  wish I  had  the  patience of

Each  saint  and  angel up above !

 

LOFTY THOUGHTS ( 2019 ) 2019/12/04

Now  I  have climbed  the mountain high

And  struggled there to touch  the sky

I  dreamt of  visions I  had  seen

Somewhere  above and  in between

But  all that  time I  found instead

These  lofty thoughts  lived  in my  head !

 

 

LOST VICTORY ( 2019 )

Oh Lord, there is  so much  pain  I feel

It  goes on  and  on,  forever  real

I  cannot  escape its iron  grasp

With   each  breath I  take,  it’s  like  my last.

Sometimes  I think it  would better  be

To  close my  eyes  in lost victory

Because  this needs all  the strength  I’ve  got

One of those   days that  I’d  rather not !

 

 

 

 

 

 

IN HOPE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/03

These  final words  that I recall

“A happy time  was  had by  all”

Too  many conversations  heard

Repeat  the very  selfsame  words.

So  blest  are we  remembering

The  greater joy  families  bring,

The  love and  care that  we receive

Help  all once  more  in hope  believe !
