To find oneself alone at last

With memories of things now past

Of happy days and lazy times

Some foolishness, some silly rhymes

Or moments when tears cannot stop

As dreams we’ve had did a flip flop.

Tis strange how life’s misunderstood

In quite many a neighborhood

But we must carry on, you see

For that’s a part of destiny

The path that each one has taken

Leaves some winning,some forsaken !

Could we but know the history

Of all God’s miracles we see,

That every minute of each day

Are playing out in grand display,

Oh, what a wonder we would learn

For every fraction of life’s turn.

As occurs here before our eyes

This program happens in disguise

The simplest flight of birds on high

Got their direction times gone by

God’s world is perfect as can be

Except for fools like you and me !

 

 

OBSESSED ( 2019 ) 2019/01/12

At times I feel I am obsessed

By hopes and dreams and fears possessed

The hope that we shall find a way

To seek a greater role to play

A dream to be the brighter star

Than what we ever really are

The fear to put our dreams to rest

And hope that all will do their best !

 

 

 

 

MY FRONT DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/12/19

Well, here it is, the early morn

Where shades of night melt into dawn

As shadows pale then disappear

Into the light now grown more near.

When I was young I found that joy

So vital to each girl and boy

My heart grew wings, I learned to fly

To heights that reached beyond the sky.

How little did I know back then

It never would return again

And wishes I’d been hoping for

All failed to knock at my front door !

Sometimes I can’t help remembering

My great grandma’s house in early spring

Oh such joy those old visions bear

Of beaches, sand and the salty air.

The wonderment of childhood may be

The remembrance of past memory

And lifestyles that have all gone astray

With the pleasantries of yesterday.

I wish that I could capture the time

Instead of watch as our lives decline

So sad, dear Lord, what was meant to be

Got lost in this new posterity !

 

WE HAVE TO WAIT ( 2018 ) 2018/09/10

The wind, it whistles through the trees

Staccato bristling in the breeze

The air is crisp, its clean and clear

Sounds of autumn fall on the ear.

The Ides of March have come and gone

And Labor Day has since moved on

Ere long it will be Halloween

With other days squeezed in between.

All lives serve seasons in their turn

Each with some lesson we need learn

Our victories may have no date

Sometimes we simply have to wait !

 

LASTING MEMORIES ( 2018 ) 2018/08/30

When I  reflect  o’er my lifespan

And try hard as I ever can

There are these things I greatly miss

The sweetness of my mother’s kiss,

The pleasure of my father’s smile

He made my life a world worthwhile,

The treasure of each tiny tot

Whose hugs and kisses meant a lot,

Such moments cannot be erased

Nor somehow get to be replaced.

I know all this is from the past

These memories I pray will last !
