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 !

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 !

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 !

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 !


FAST FRIEND ( 2015 ) 2015/04/18

The year has come and flown away

This is another sanguine day

How fleetly time does pass us by

And leaves behind the tears that dried

Like memories we can’t forget

Or dreams we’ve had that haunt us yet.

I’ve learned so much as I have grown

We all must try to stand alone

For that is how each life does end

With only God as our fast friend !


IMAGINING ( 2014 ) 2014/04/30

I’d like to be an elephant

With memory forever long,

A wrinkled trunk to honk and rant

My strength and power exceeding strong !

I’d travel with a circus troupe

To visit many foreign lands

While children all around would group

And smile and laugh and clap their hands !

Can you just picture all the joy

This spectacle would bring to me

Imagining I could employ

The magic wand my mind must be ?
