Man  cannot live  without a dream

Believing  elsewise  is  extreme

How  difficult  without  a cause

Our  lives  are dull  and lack  applause

There  is a vision  all do need

To  raise  each up,  to help succeed

We  have a God,  be  not afraid

He  is our Friend,  our Help,  our Aid

And  in the  end  when life seems  done

Tis  when our  journey’s  just begun   !

Lord  save us from  old Satan’s  might

And  guide us through each lonesome night

Protect  us as we wend our  way

From  morning’s light till end of day

Forsake  us not,  we do believe,

We’re  grateful  for gifts we receive.

Lord,  how much longer  must we wait

To  greet  You at God’s  Golden Gate ?

Oh  blessed Lord,  please hear my plea

And save a  piece  of sky  for me

A  dusky  eve or starlit  night

Perhaps  a rainbow’s  sweet delight.

And  for  your  pleasure,  I will raise

A  song of love  and joyous praise

Come  join me Lord  and hear me  pray

That  you’ll take  me with  you to stay !

 

 

 

THIS JOURNEY’S DONE ( 2019) 2019/09/03

Sometimes  I want to yell and  scream

To exit from this  madd’ning  scene

The world I  love is gone from here

It  shall  not  ever  reappear.

Instead all that  I’ve valued so

Packed up its bags  and had to go

Tis sad  the  time  has gone

No  reason  left to carry on.

Small  matter what we say or do

Our stay on  earth is  overdue

Let’s  count our blessings  one by one

And thank the Lord  this journey’s  done !

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 !

 

 

LIFE’S PASSAGE ( 2019 ) 2019/04/19

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 !

 

I MISS MY FRIEND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/07

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 !
