Our aims got tangled and went adrift

The spirit’s drowning and needs a lift

While our dreams have somehow gone astray

Pray this confusion soon melts away.

At the root of all that we believe

And a part of ideas we conceive

May the love of God instill great peace

And from life’s distress grant all release !

Have you seen smiles upon each face

Of winners who complete the race

It’s not about their speed or pace

But difficulties they’ve embraced !

There is a flag flies in the wind

Red, white and blue and golden fringed

And from my window every day

Its mighty emblem is displayed.

Sometimes its folds blow in the breeze

And wave to all the leaf-filled trees

Its symbol shouting freedom first

With such a sympathetic voice !

Sunshine is the gladness that sweetens every day

Rain is the cleansing mist that washes grief away !

To love our God and country too

Those are the things I chose to do.

To furnish aid to those in need

Encourage others to succeed

Grant help to many who deserve

To earn a chance to give and serve.

It’s true our nation must be saved

If we are to escape this grave

Of shattered dreams, distorted facts,

Repeated crimes and heartless acts.

Please rescue us and keep us free

Lest we betray our destiny !

I miss the peace of morning sounds

The tender tug that calm expounds

The smell of coffee in the air

It seems to be most everywhere

The gentle hum as life revives

Before the world becomes alive

The quiet lull before the dawn

That signals all, here comes the morn !

 

NO LAST WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/03

At times I sense a whistle

As it rides upon the wind

There silent as the thistle

While it begs, “please let me in”.

When the moment seems to die

And the quiet does not bend

All the world whispers “goodbye”

And each friendship must now end !
