See  sunlight  streaming  through  the  trees

While  leaves  are  swaying  in  the  breeze

The  morning  air’s  so  fresh  and  cool

The  rising  sun  shines  like  a  jewel

Oh  what  a  great  day  this  will  be

A  gift  from  our  own  Diety,

God  bless  us  all  as  we  arise

Let’s  pray  this  day’s  full  of  surprise  !

 

HEREDITY ? ( 2020 ) 2020/05/26

There is a world that waits for me

Somewhere across God’s great blue sea

A place where anger can’t exist

And only kindness does persist.

But I’m not sure if I can wait

To make the journey to that Gate

Because my world is falling down

And crushing kindness to the ground.

What shall I do, how can this be

Is this the new heredity ?

Oh Gracious Lord, remember me

For only You can set me free !

I ask You, Lord, to comfort me

While this old world is still not free

Give each a turn to stand up tall

Before the times wherein we fall.

Show us the mercy that You gave

To all the Saints that You have saved

And grant us peace ere we must die

Without a fragile last goodbye !

Out of the quiet of the hour

Tis now the time for peace to flower

When angels rest the air turns still

So hope may shine upon yon hill

Thus power rests in present thought

Of all the lessons life has taught.

We need replace man’s lack of love

With kindness shared from God above,

Take heart and dream what life’s about

And learn to live with faith devout !

 

SECOND CHANCES ( 2020 ) 2020/05/10

There remains certain moments we encounter every day

When we are at our leisure and the world’s prepared to pray

Aft the silence has been broken and eventide occurs

And times spent all together aren’t his or aren’t hers .

When all our simple pleasures are aligned there side by side

And the honeymoon is over without some silly pride

May the Good Lord take the measure of tasks already done

Guaranteeing life’s diversion twist happiness and fun !

THANX TO SECOND CHANCES

Oh how my love plays tricks on me

And gathers up my sympathy

My eyes are full of sweet surprise

With all the joy of each sunrise

Observe God’s will with constant heart

Stay true to values from the start

Believe in your own destiny

Keep faith alive and courage free

Always remember God is there

To save us whether foul or fair !

There  she is  our Lady Liberty

Symbol  of this  safe home of the  free

She’s  the  grandest of all  that we sight

There in the Harbor  each day and night.

She  spurs us on  to do greater things

Like  prayers we say  and hymns  we  sing

We’ll  join our hearts  and hands together

Through  pleasant days  or stormy weather.

Let’s  ask our  God  to protect us all

In  case old Satan  decides to call  !

 

 

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/05

When  I was small  and but  a child

I  spoke in manner  sweet and mild

Twas  not a time  of angry ways

For  kindness  dwelt  in all our days.

We  spared each other  any pain

Determined  to help  and explain

Our  words displayed  the constant grace

Of  honesty  while face to face.

How  clever that  our role should be

To  echo  God’s integrity

And  live with  honor  all our days

To  seek God’s  love and sing  His Praise  !

My  dearest child,  I miss your voice

I  know there is no other choice

In  times as these  we need be strong

To  caution’s  cause we must belong

Be  kind to those  who’ve  tried so hard

To  keep the faith  and walk  with God

Remember  always to be fair

That  of  God’s bounty  all may share

Please  grant us peace  day after day

Help  each to follow  in His way  !

 

AMEN.

I  am so glad  I can recall

The  bygone days  when I was small

I’d  sit upon  my nana’s  lap

All  snug and  warm in cozy wrap

And  get to  spend  much of my days

In  comfort  close under her gaze

For  all my life,  I’ll  never find

Another  who would  be so kind

Her  gentle ways  and crooked  smile

Made  early life  for me  worthwhile

 

 

PRECIOUS DAY ( 2020 ) 2020/02/20

Seems  today’s  life  has its ups  and downs

In  this world  that’s  full of  smiles and frowns

With  its portion of  both  laughs and tears

Enough  to last  us a  dozen  years.

Thus  we come and  go  and only find

The  path we have chosen  will unwind

So  we’ll take our  chances  come what may

And  praise our  Lord  for each precious day !

 

 

GOD’S GOLDEN GATE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/08

Lord  save us from  old Satan’s  might

And  guide us through each lonesome night

Protect  us as we wend our  way

From  morning’s light till end of day

Forsake  us not,  we do believe,

We’re  grateful  for gifts we receive.

Lord,  how much longer  must we wait

To  greet  You at God’s  Golden Gate ?

My  heart’s so sad  I cannot bear

The  thought that I may never share

Or  see the end of all we’ve wrought

And what has been  or heard or taught.

The  dreams of all our yesterdays

That  in this life  do garner praise

Are kept quite safe  in memory

Reflecting  our  identity

For  dreaming is a part  of what

Life  is about,  like it  or not  !

 

 

CHRISTMAS JOY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/24

There  is a sound  I remember well

The  joyous peal  of our Christmas bell

Resting  there in its  lofty steeple

Reaching  out to all  of His people.

Granting each one love,  peace and surprise

On  Christmas morn  as all do arise

Thank  God for our blessings  great and small

May  the Lord above  gift hope to all !

 

TO SUCCEED ( 2019 ) 2019/12/21

There are so many ways to say

I love you each and every day

A kiss, a hug, a smile or two

Will do the trick to get one through.

A voice that’s gentle, ever kind

With not a single edge to grind

True honesty in all you do

Dependable, trustworthy too,

These are the qualities you’ll need

To be a winner and succeed !

Oh how I wish  that I could fly

Above the dark  clouds in the sky

Into that  place where dreams are made

And raindrops  taste like  lemonade,

Where children  laugh and play and shout

And  no one has to do  without,

Where  God above has room to share

With  anyone who visits there !

 

 

 

THE RIGHT TRACK ( 2019 ) 2019/12/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:24 am

There’s been a moment I recall

A moment that came first of all

Before we challenged all the rules

And listened to the sound of fools

When sense was part of every day

And kindly words were ours to say

Tis time to get our values back

And keep us all on a right track !

In  dreams we find  life’s small escape

Some dreams  are meant to  keep us safe

While arms  are meant  to wrap around

And keep  us warm  with love unbound.

How wonderful  this world  would be

Wrapt  up  in God’s  divinity !

 

TIME TO SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/07

Oh, how  I pray that I  can  hide

These  tears  I shed  on the inside

For  all  God’s  children  that I see

Who  dwell in  abject  poverty.

They  never  really had a  chance

For  all their dreams  to be  enhanced

Or  find a  safer path to  take

That  guarantees  a better  break.

Our  Lord  is just  and answers  prayer

He  comprehends we all  must share

It’s  left to  us  to learn  and  teach

The  world we love  to  kindness  reach !

 

 

 

 

 

TO THE LEAST ( 2019 ) 2019/11/03

All  creatures  lives are full of fear

As  they survive  from year to year

Some lifetimes  that they  share  are cruel

Still  their love  sparkles  like a jewel.

While  all  the legacy  we leave

Are  what we’ve  said or do  believe

The  animals can’t  speak their mind

But  truer love  this world won’t  find.

How  sad that  few may  chance  endure

To  cruelty  there is  no cure

Beg  God  protect each simple beast

From  giant-sized  down to the least !

The sun  came out to  play today

While  sunbeams danced their hearts away

The  air was warm and smelled so sweet

And  all were  light upon  their  feet.

I  wish  somehow we could  replay

The  happenings of every day

That bring  God’s  laughter  and His joy

For  all  His  creatures to employ !

 

 

 

I’LL REMEMBER YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/10/27

Oh  blessed Lord, see how my heart grieves

When  another of Your  children leaves

This  generation has missed so  much

No  love or kisses,  no  tender touch

A  prayer or  two for what  used to be

And  a hint  of things we’ll  never see.

I  beg You  Lord  to find him a  place

Help  him to rest  in  a  special  space

Show  him the  love  that  he’s  never known

Treat  him as if  the sky were his home

Answer  his queries best as  You can

Help  him  remember he  died a man !

TO MICHAEL WITH LOVE.

I’d  like to think  that God  is here

And  those I’ve loved are  ever near

That  all I need is  close at hand

And  everything will  turn out grand.

I’ve  waited my whole  lifetime through

To  know what  is it I must do

Be  thankful  and remember this

God’s  gift to all,  eternal  bliss !

The  air is thin and smells lke snow

When winter comes  where does one go

And where will all God’s  creatures hide

If  there’s no warmth to find outside ?

Oh  Lord,  have mercy on those souls

Whose lives are lost and  without goals !

 

 

 

RELEASE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/21

The  world we  know  is  crass and cold

Its conversation  brassed and  bold

And leaves  no kindness in its  wake

Just  policies that  crash and  break

With  no  thought for tomorrow’s  child

Inheriting  this place  gone  wild.

God  help us all to  find  our peace

Before  He grants  each soul’s  release !

Today’s  a day for  reveries

Of love  and tears and  memories

Of sadness and  reproach, it seems

Of fear and of aborted dreams.

I’ve lived a life so full of pain

And will not pass this way again

I wait here in the silence of

My  lonliness  and  derth  of love.

Dear  Lord,  protect me  from myself

And place  me  on the  “keepsafe”  shelf

I know Your heart’s  with  every child

In  manner kind,   loving  and mild !

My  wishes for a pleasant day

To  you  are wending  fast their way

I  hear the  church bells  as they sound

With  joy and  worship  heaven bound.

For  all who  listen to  my  voice

Your  time’s  arrived to  make a choice

Choose  God  and learn how  to obey

To  love your neighbor  and to pray.

Be kind  remembering  the  need

Of  all God’s  children and their seed

For  all are  meant to  heed  His Word

And  cherish all that  they have heard !

Dear Lord,  when pain is so intense

I  turn to you for  my  defense

And  beg You  please to hold my hand

To  bring  me peace   and  understand.

There  is nought else that one may crave

But  act the  hero and  be brave,

The answer  comes from  God above

Who’s  good and  kind  and full of love  !
