The silence falls upon my ear

It seems to be all I can hear

Each sound reverberates with fear

The day of grace is inching near !

Oh how I wish that I could be

A twinkling star that all can see

Far up above the world so high

Like God’s own beacon in the sky.

So like a dream as it appears

Full of our hopes and often fears

For God will not our futures make

Tis left for each to mold or break.

And only when the journey’s done

May we acclaim we’ve had  our run

The problem is we oft forget

There’s no place left to sound regret !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

It seems to me this world is strange

From ocean’s edge to mountain range

With valleys lower than the sea

And plains as far as eyes can see.

A land of forests, hills with ruins

Lakes, rivers, streams and desert dunes

A coastline full of coves and bays

With swamps and marshes in a maze,

Mass spectacles of God’s delights

This place of dreams and hope incites

Such passion in her people here

They shall not dare to live in  fear !




ITS OWN CONTENT ( 2017 ) 2017/09/01

A little cheer, a soft hooray

Let’s all enjoy another day

Be grateful for the sun and air

And all those joys that we may share .

The Lord does bless all of our deeds

And keeps fulfilling present needs

Wherein we fall asleep each night

Sweet dreams of angels speed our flight.

They shadow us where e’er we’re sent

The morrow brings its own content !



ICONOCLAST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/19

So many children do not play

So many dreams have gone astray

While many values have been trashed

Too many idols now are bashed.

We live in times too tough to bear

There seems no kindness left to share

Our world is dying bit by bit

And everyone is part of it.

Dark clouds are gathering above

Obscuring all our acts of love

Hold on, hold on, the die is cast

Let’s welcome the iconoclast !

Her mountains rose up from the sea

While sunshine showed her true glory

Her rivers flowed upon this earth

The nation prospered for its worth.

Her people stood there by her side

They lived and fought and too soon died

The grandest place this world has seen

The saddest words “what might have been ” !
