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 !

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 !

 

 

 

 

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN ( 2017 ) 2017/08/18

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 ” !

 

HIT OR MISS ( 2017 ) 2017/03/18

I thought that love had come to stay

One knows true love won’t run away

For you and I were born to be

Two partners through eternity.

I’d always dreamt that this was so

No matter what or where we’d go

Though sometimes I did have a doubt

If this is what all love’s about ?

I tried so hard to stay the course

I didn’t care who was the boss

Since you and I had one intent

That for each other we were meant.

Somehow, somewhere it went astray

While all our hopes did melt away

So much for dreams and plans well made

Like future joys that got mislaid.

I often wondered what went wrong

Was I too weak, were you not strong

After the bliss of that first kiss

Why does love fade to hit or miss ?

I try so hard to comprehend

Why all our dreams are at their end

Or why our future is unclear,

The minds of most too full of fear ?

I thought we’d learned how to behave

To play the hero not the knave,

Accept the truth with open heart

And to define its nobler part.

We look into the mirror blind

What type of image will one find

Does no one see themselves for real

How can this nation ever heal ?

Oh Lord, dear Lord, what have we done

What madness is this we’ve begun ?
