I  have never found myself depressed

Tis  like facing the world  half-dressed

I  have never understood the term

But  I  suppose I will have to learn.

A  foolish thought that I cannot shake

Oh days to come,  please give me a break

I  can’t  imagine time that is lost

As an exception,  what is the cost ?

I  pledge today I  shall do my best

To  laugh and smile  and pass every test

To keep my spirits  pleasant  and charmed

Present  no reason  to be alarmed!





GO WITH YOUR HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/10/01

Long time ago, I remember well

There was a tale the old timers tell

Of a man  who rode this way one day

Just  passing through not meaning to stay

When a shy young beauty he did see

A sweet  image for his fantasy.

Well the story goes, they got on great

While the rest of it was left to fate

The two young folks seemed to fall in love

Quite like the wish each was  dreaming of

Remember when love has a good start

Most times it pays to follow the heart !

Well  here we are at God’s front door

What is it  we are  waiting  for

An  invitation  to come in

A smile, a kiss, a foolish grin ?

We’ve  not much time,  let’s hurry up

And place  our futures  in  His cup

We  cannot  fail to  understand

Calamity  is  close at  hand.

The world  is crumbling  as we wait

For  destiny to  crash  this gate

Oh,  Lord above,  do heed our  plea

Open  our eyes  and set us free !

Have you e’er pondered  over  angel  wings

How they  could get caught in our  worldly things

Such as  doors, windows and archways or screens

Or limbs of trees or in branches of greens ?

How do they manage to dress up each day

Looking so sweet in angelic display

I wonder if they wear stockings or boots

Do they prefer eating  ice cream  or fruits ?

Isn’t it strange that we know nothing more

Of where they’ve been until now and before

I’d sure like to find  some  lessons to use

To help me decide which pathway to choose !

A little bit of humor,  her smile to show she’d dare

The sound of laughter on our ears floating in the air

A tiny  piece of heaven for  every one to share

Today’s my mother’s birthday and oh, how much I care !


THE GOOD FAIRY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/13

If I were high up in the sky

What is it that my eyes would spy

Lots of rooftops affording space

To pigeons, gulls, all birds apace

With other havens to be found

Where they are safer than on ground.

I am so glad to be alive

And able to help birds survive

Supplying all those old stale buns,

Kitchen scraps along with bread crumbs

Tis how it is I’m known to be

Bird feeder and their good fairy !



EVERYTHING SHE SAID ( 2019 ) 2019/05/11

Dear Lord, I’m glad that you are there

To hear my ever constant prayer

My mother told me long ago

That when I asked, take care to know

Because You answer each request

With what You deem to be the best

The answer will be “yes” or “no”,

“Wait for a little while or so”

“Or give us something else instead”

That covers everything she said !
