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 !

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 !

 

 

WHEN COURAGE ABATES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/21

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 !

 

A LONG JOURNEY ( 2016 ) 2016/11/30

We found ourselves in wilderness

Two thousand years ago

And knew the road to our success

Did need God’s love to grow !
