Dear Lord, I’m glad that you are there

To hear my ever constant prayer

My mother told me long ago

That when I asked, take care to know

Because You answer each request

With what You deem to be the best

The answer will be “yes” or “no”,

“Wait for a little while or so”

“Or give us something else instead”

That covers everything she said !

 

AMEN !

The Lady in the Harbor speaks for one and all

She stands there in the distance silent and so tall

All copper green and shining like a sentinel

Full of all those secrets and tales she’ll never tell

Lady of deep mystery, tears and joys we’ve shared

While God is watching o’er us, know how much He cares !

When I look out and see her there

Our Liberty with greenish hair

So grand and strong reminding me

We have remained land of the free

Far longer than two hundred years

Amidst hurrahs and raucous cheers.

 

But now we are put to the test

To do what we know to be best

Thus save our nation from distress

And for the rest our foes impress

Our job’s ongoing, working hard

Protect ourselves and thank our God !

I’ve often thought how bold are we

To dream aloud of  victory

There is a path we all must take

To learn what values are at stake

We strive to be a people free

Oft caught midst chains of tyranny.

As winds of war rage fierce and wild

A challenge to each man or child

We’re wrapt in our leftover tears

And chastened by impending fears.

There is no way to make amends

With God alone to help our friends

Beyond this sight what will we see

Still flying there, old Liberty !

I often think no matter what

That I will give all that I’ve got

And pray that I’m much better than

Some mediocre protest plan !

I’ll stand up for the land I love

Her people that I am proud of

Her flag and constitution too

The honor of red, white and blue

I sure hope most will join with me

To fight to keep our liberty !

 

LIBERTY ( 2016 ) 2016/10/30

There was a greenish statue that on an islet stood

When I was but a child too nearby my neighborhood

We did pay small attention, we called her Liberty

She was this grand figure that you couldn’t help but see.

With every place I’ve lived she was always in my sight

You could not escape her glance not morning, noon or night

She’s still there in the harbor exposed for all to see

A symbol of our freedom and still called Liberty !

 

( WHEN I CLOSED MY BLINDS SHE WAS THE FINAL THING I’D SEE )

I find myself  remembering

Those things that once were used to be

When days were sweet and lingering

And hearts were fond of liberty

While life itself was happening

And peace was all we sought to see !
