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 !

 

 

SEE ME THROUGH ( 2018 ) 2018/08/15

I’ve seen the world about me cry

And heard its whispers of goodbye

I’ve felt the tremor of its fears

All through these recent lonely years

I’ve known the truth and heard its lies

And seen them revel in disguise.

I’ve prayed for help in my distress

And been denied proper redress

I’ve hoped that opportunity

Would visit soon and set me free

But most of all I’ve asked of You

Dear Lord above, please see me through !

 

 

THIS LEGACY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/10

Of all the wishes I have sought

Or presents that I’ve ever bought

Like treasured dreams that I have thought

Are in my heart, forever caught !

 

ALL PRAISES SUNG ( 2018 ) 2018/08/07

When we were young so long ago

Seems each one had places to go

Our world held opportunity

At least a million sights to see.

Before the young had dreams to share

Or found someone that truly cared

There was a path that each might take

Beside the promises they’d make.

In youth we’re prone to fool around

And fail to keep our feet aground

There’s always one more thing to do

Some song to sing or dragon slew

Rooftops to scale or mountains climbed

Oceans to cross with not much time

Hopes, schemes and plans, all praises sung

Tis sad gets wasted on the young !

 

 

 

LIFE’S DISTRESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/13

Our aims got tangled and went adrift

The spirit’s drowning and needs a lift

While our dreams have somehow gone astray

Pray this confusion soon melts away.

At the root of all that we believe

And a part of ideas we conceive

May the love of God instill great peace

And from life’s distress grant all release !

Have you seen smiles upon each face

Of winners who complete the race

It’s not about their speed or pace

But difficulties they’ve embraced !
