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!

The sky is blue  without a cloud

Hear all the birds  chirp out aloud

The air is fresh  and clearly sweet

There are no strangers  on the street,

A subtle breeze  blows all around

The leaves are  drifting to the ground

There is much  beauty  all may see

In  nature’s great  serenity  !

I watch the stars fade in and out

So patiently,  night after night

And wonder why they’re so devout

And why they shine so clear and bright.

Sometimes I fear that cannot last

For even stars fall out of sight

Oh,  what an image they have cast

With their eternal  blinking light !

Sometimes the world seems upside down

Sure makes it hard to get around

Sometimes we notice small mistakes

Let’s fix it fast before it breaks

Sometimes we find we’re not that smart

But we possess a giant heart !

Where the moon comes over the mountain

And the stars disappear in the sea

There’s a statue rains in a fountain

In a special place they call Trevi.

In the past I have been there often

It’s such a heavenly  place to be

As I remember how hearts soften

And the day I’ll return there to see !

 

GOD’S COMFORT AND GRACE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/16

We are walking our way back to God

O’er a path that’s rocky and oft hard

In a manner that would uphill wind

What e’er this discovery may find.

On a foreign road unknown and strange

We’ve tackled a job due for a change

Picking up the pieces of broken hearts

While trying to find all the lost parts.

It’s a worthwhile service that we’ve found

Attempting to get our lives unbound

Praying to reach a much finer place

Therein receive God’s comfort and grace !

With all her hair piled on her head

Her cheeks so pink, her lips true red

Her running shorts cut at the thigh

With measured trot while passing by.

 

She is a picture of content

Angelic smile from heaven sent

As daily I observe her pass

From my front window’s pane of glass.

 

Her running shoes and steady pace

Are ne’er distracted by each race

She’s happy jogging every street

Controling life while on her feet !
