EMOTION FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/02/05


There is this pair that I do see

Each morning, smiling back at me

We three have greeted every dawn

Practically since I was born.

 

We are old friends the three of us

And no one ever makes a fuss,

Their clothes look worn and faded too

But just like me, their hearts are true.

 

There is one plus I don’t possess

They’ve candied hearts within their chests

Now that may not mean much to you

But that’s one way to not feel blue.

 

Sometimes I wish that I might be

Like those ragdolls, emotion free !

There is an oak outside my door

That stretches up ten stories more

There is no way that I can see

The sidewalk to the left of me.

This ancient tree is truly old

Devoid of nicks and is not bald

Her branches spread this way and that

She wears them like a giant hat .

And when it rains the ground is dry

Because her leaves are piled so high

Oft do I think, about those trees

That gently sway into the breeze

I’d like to know what I can do

To be that free and live long too !

A finer lad I’ve never seen

With nose quite straight and brain so keen

One tall boy with a manner sweet

All dressed and pressed and rather neat.

His smile lights up the dreary room

His laugh disposes doom and gloom

I love to listen to his chat

He knows so much of this and that.

A nice young man, his mother’s boy

And daddy’s handsome  pride and joy !

At peace, a child of God am I,

I yearn to see His banner fly

I’ve followed Him along the way

And have not begged a longer stay.

I know that He is always there

Assured He answers every prayer,

He holds my life in His own hand

With Him I’m sure all will be grand

I close my eyes the time draws near

My heart is full I have no fear !

 

 

 

FALSE JUDGEMENT ( 2016 ) 2016/02/27

There is a line one must not cross

To do so would compel a loss

Both pro and con may fight the war

From outside in right to the core.

Take care you’ll find one does not win

When truth is based upon a sin

The Lord has eyes based everywhere

To judgements make both just and fair !

There is a bit of keen advice that I would give you all

That as you travel through your life try to avoid the toll

Of those so full of avarice who wish to be a friend

Take care because their interest sometimes is but pretend !
