LIFE IS A GAMBLE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/07

I’ve trod the road uncounted miles

And shed more than a million tears

While time evoked a thousand smiles

As life revealed a hundred fears.

I cannot know the why of it

From each angle life has displayed

I only know I hope to fit

Before all of my cards are played !

A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

 

 

 

SOME FORSAKEN ( 2019 ) 2019/03/08

To find oneself alone at last

With memories of things now past

Of happy days and lazy times

Some foolishness, some silly rhymes

Or moments when tears cannot stop

As dreams we’ve had did a flip flop.

Tis strange how life’s misunderstood

In quite many a neighborhood

But we must carry on, you see

For that’s a part of destiny

The path that each one has taken

Leaves some winning,some forsaken !

Oh sandman, sandman what shall we see

In tonight’s sleepy time fantasy

While each evening I prepare for bed

I pray I’ll have pleasant dreams ahead

If  I’m honest I cannot recall

Any of my dreams of old  at all

They seemed to disappear ere came dawn

And by waking time they were all gone !

 

FOOLS LIKE YOU AND ME ( 2019 ) 2019/01/15

Could we but know the history

Of all God’s miracles we see,

That every minute of each day

Are playing out in grand display,

Oh, what a wonder we would learn

For every fraction of life’s turn.

As occurs here before our eyes

This program happens in disguise

The simplest flight of birds on high

Got their direction times gone by

God’s world is perfect as can be

Except for fools like you and me !

 

 

OBSESSED ( 2019 ) 2019/01/12

At times I feel I am obsessed

By hopes and dreams and fears possessed

The hope that we shall find a way

To seek a greater role to play

A dream to be the brighter star

Than what we ever really are

The fear to put our dreams to rest

And hope that all will do their best !

The willows in the wood reach the ground

Stretching their branches down all around

The stars in the sky shimmer and shine

With greetings they bring to yours and mine.

This year’s ending with no alarm

Leaving us with past wealth and old charm

Let’s look ahead to days that soon come

Sharing with others a bit and some

Forgiving all our errors and sins

How wonderful each New Year begins !
