I hear the train move on the track

I think it says  ” click-clack, click-clack “,

And wings upon the breeze to here

Appearing to be ever near.

Our journey soon will reach its end

Without our luggage or dear friend

We’ve bid goodbye as trav’lers do,

Goodbye, so long and toodle-oo !

I hear the whistle of the train

Reverberating in my brain

Its lonesome wail echoes so clear

And sends a song into my ear

There is a mystery you bring

With every plaintive note you sing.

Oh how I wish to ride with you

Until my sojourn here is through

But that can never be, my friend

Our journey lasts until its end !

Before I entered in life’s maze

I’d been alive a thousand days

I walked and talked and learned to sing

Good manners came with everything.

My mother,  she was but sixteen

Had never been a high school queen

She was my best friend my whole life

Through happy days and those of strife.

The hard times came, then went away

But left the scars of yesterday

Sometimes when I do quiet sit

Those memories may be relit.

I’ve often wondered how we did

When daddy died, I was a kid

Today the days just seem to fly

I must learn now to say goodbye !

I’m walking alone on this long, long road

My soul is laden with a heavy load

The pace is labored but my aim intent

There are no excuses left to invent.

I have had a dream of these ups and downs

Some full of smiles and a few with deep frowns

It’s wisdom we need when courage abates

To give life a chance before it’s too late !

We found ourselves in wilderness

Two thousand years ago

And knew the road to our success

Did need God’s love to grow !

A man he traveled on a road, it was to Damascus

His name was Saul when he began, though now he’s Paul to us

While on that journey long ago there was a lesson learned

You can’t take credit for good deeds that you have not yet earned !

 

 

LONG LAST ROAD ( 2016 ) 2016/02/11

I have wept alone but a million tears

And battled with close to a thousand fears

I have argued in vain a hundred ways

And struggled and lost for too many days.

I have wakened often in darkest night

The victim of unreasonable fright

I have said my prayers aloud to my God

And have asked for aid and a gentle prod.

I am sure that He will always be there

Through the bleakest night or a day quite fair

I shall beg His help to carry my load

And to stay with me on this last long road !
