Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

There was this time when I was young

That many words tripped off my tongue

And as those dreams filled up my mind

The future was what I would find.

I used to wish that I could be

Some nice young man’s true destiny

It ne’er did happen I must add

Perhaps that made me rather sad.

Now as the road is winding down

I keep on smiling, seldom frown

So that my life can be pure bliss

Those dreams I’ve seen end with a kiss!

 

OUR BURDEN BEAR ( 2018 ) 2018/09/15

There is this part of me that cries

As tales of sadness doth arise

Or when someone has a great need

To find some peace or to succeed.

We’ll seek a measure to impart

Our loving help for ailing heart

Perhaps one moment to remind

Each other that we should be kind.

There are these special words we’ll keep

That as ye sow thus shall ye reap

Always remember He’ll be there

To help us each our burden bear !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

 

DO NOT FORGET TODAY   9/11/2001.

 

RELATIVITY ( 2018 )

How often now I chance recall

Those olden times when I was small

And all those relatives I knew

That sheltered me my childhood through.

There’s been so many I could love

To aid me in my dreaming of

A life blest with both good and bad

Mongst all those joys I’ve known and had.

I need to thank each uncle, aunt

For every dream they helped to plant

And all that wisdom they taught me

To live life with integrity !

 

 

EXPERIENCED ( 2018 ) 2018/09/08

T’was once upon a time ago

When we were full of life aglow

Before emerged this need to know

With tiny impetus for show

Our lives were truly less confused

Filled with days both calm and diffused

May all that anger be excused

To find ourselves in turn  amused !

 

 

NEVER SAY GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/04

There was a place we used to go

When I was small so long ago

A spot straight out of storybooks

Beside a beach with coves and nooks.

A happy home for waves and sand

Of salt and sea aside the land

My childhood summers I recall

They were the very best of all.

With mom and dad, pop, nana too

Those days of summer quickly flew

I learned to swim right off the dock

Clock hands grew wings, tick tock, tick tock.

Oh, how I wish I had a way

To live again that yesterday

Without the need to say goodbye

Real love’s ne’er built upon a lie !
