Millions  of dreams have  gone astray

Because  of wars we  fight each day

When  does  it end,  shall we survive

What  must we do  to keep alive ?

So  many  innocents to  save

By  heroes who have  filled each grave

And  what of all  the families

Left  behind with  but memories ?

Of  fathers,  sons and daughters  too

Who  gave themselves  in lieu of you

Bless  them all  and promise to be

Defenders  of their  sanctity !

Whomever  thought I would live to be

Alive  in  another  century

How  fast all the years have whizzed on by

With a  tender shrug and  a sad goodbye.

While  I’d  like to believe  it’s okay

Trying  to pursue  another  day

In  a world  I neither fit nor last

Since the  twentieth  century’s  passed !

AMEN.

Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !

 

 

 

 

BRIDGES ( 2019 ) 2019/11/20

There is this tugging on my heart

How did it  ever get its start

A  numbness rising  from the floor

Into  my feet and  out the door.

What’s  happening,  I do not know

I  cannot make it  stop or go

Please lead me Lord,  teach me the way

Help  me survive  each lonely  day.

Where are the tears  I need to cry

With  each and every  sad goodbye

Where  are the kisses  I have earned

Ere all  my bridges  have been burned ?

 

 

 

TIME TO SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/07

Oh, how  I pray that I  can  hide

These  tears  I shed  on the inside

For  all  God’s  children  that I see

Who  dwell in  abject  poverty.

They  never  really had a  chance

For  all their dreams  to be  enhanced

Or  find a  safer path to  take

That  guarantees  a better  break.

Our  Lord  is just  and answers  prayer

He  comprehends we all  must share

It’s  left to  us  to learn  and  teach

The  world we love  to  kindness  reach !

 

 

 

 

 

TIME’S RUN AWAY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/05

There  is a joy the season brings

That dwells within rememberings

Of  times long  past and those to come

In  this old world so worrisome.

What  used to  be our yesterdays

Have  been recycled  to todays

And  we’ve recaptured  our best chance

To feel  again the  warm romance.

The world  that was,  has disappeared

To be  forgotten as we feared

Tis sad  that time  must runaway

To leave  but hours to  love and pray !

 

 

 

I’LL TAKE A CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/12

I  hear the  whistle on  the  track

It  seems to shout,  come back,  come back

But  I have  been  this way  before

Not  once,  but  twice or maybe more

And  cannot bear  the lonesome sound

Of  emptiness  which  I  have found.

My  bags are packed  all set to go

I’m  ready for  another  show

I  do not have a  backup  plan

And  may  become  an ” also  ran ”

God  with Your  help,  I’ll  take a chance

Tis  time to  try  to learn  to dance !
