I used to think that I was strong

And knew therewith where I belonged

How sad to learn fate flew away

Ne’er to return e’er aft that day.

So long ago, that distant past

How foolish to believe t’would last

For dreams will keep us warm at night

But vanish with the morning light !

There is a sound that fills the air

It seems to well from everywhere

And floods the skies with sweet surprise,

Assails the heart with joyous sighs.

Oh, what great hope new seasons bring

Anticipating  everything

The lure and charm of  “everydays”

That daily sing of God in praise,

The warmth and kindness and the love

Now emanates from God above !

Sometimes the world seems upside down

Sure makes it hard to get around

Sometimes we notice small mistakes

Let’s fix it fast before it breaks

Sometimes we find we’re not that smart

But we possess a giant heart !

 

GOD’S COMFORT AND GRACE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/16

We are walking our way back to God

O’er a path that’s rocky and oft hard

In a manner that would uphill wind

What e’er this discovery may find.

On a foreign road unknown and strange

We’ve tackled a job due for a change

Picking up the pieces of broken hearts

While trying to find all the lost parts.

It’s a worthwhile service that we’ve found

Attempting to get our lives unbound

Praying to reach a much finer place

Therein receive God’s comfort and grace !

 

 

EAGLES FLY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/30

Have you observed how eagles fly

Into the reaches of the sky,

This symbol of our history

Proud emblem of our dignity ?

They move across celestial space

Embued with God’s unflinching grace

We’re told that eagles mate for life

I still can’t tell which is the wife !

Their eyesight is invincible

Two miles away and they can tell

How wonderful that eagles thrive

Please God, let’s keep them all alive !

 

 

 

NO FEAR ( 2016 ) 2016/03/15

At peace, a child of God am I,

I yearn to see His banner fly

I’ve followed Him along the way

And have not begged a longer stay.

I know that He is always there

Assured He answers every prayer,

He holds my life in His own hand

With Him I’m sure all will be grand

I close my eyes the time draws near

My heart is full I have no fear !

 

 

 

NO TIME LEFT ( 2015 ) 2015/08/05

There was a town I used to know

I was so small, it’s long ago

It bordered by the river there

The land was flat, sandy and bare

The pines, they grew so tall and strong

The nights were cool, the days were long.

And there beside the water’s edge

I made myself a solemn pledge

That one day when I was all grown

After my foolish deeds were sown

I would return to this sweet place

And once again true life embrace,

Alas for me now bides no chance

There’s no time left for this last dance !
