FINAL REST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/08

When first I  held  you in my arms

My sweetest child  so full  of charm

You stole my heart and my soul too

Like no one person  e’er could do

I  never thought  that life would be

Full of  this  joy you’ve  brought to me.

 

In all the  years you  did not fail

Or steal  the wind out of my sail

We’ve weathered  every sort of storm

And kept our lives about  the norm

Tis tragic that you  couldn’t  stay

Wherein at last  my heart will lay !

 

IT’S OVER ( 2019 ) 2019/08/01

There are no bridges left to cross

Nor any mountains left to climb

It’s too late now to pitch and toss

Because we have run out of time.

There is no point in looking back

The curtains drawn, the page is blank

The horse got spooked and left the track

And no one’s  here we need to thank.

We have no reason now to try

I cannot ask the how and when

Believe that love just passed us by

And will not come this way again !

 

UNDERHAND ( 2019 ) 2019/07/10

The dreams  we  knew when we were small

To be  quite true,  who can recall

These days long gone,  like those forgot

Midst times  that we remember not  ?

There are some hours passed in content

Twixt  those that were uncaring spent

A  myriad  of  loving  thought

That  fills our lives with lessons taught.

Shall  we admit  our passions  loss

Or  ignore bad  behavior’s  cost,

What  will  it  take to  understand

Too  much of life  is  underhand ?

 

AN EMPTY CHAIR ( 2019 ) 2019/06/14

Each time that I sit down to eat

I notice there’s an unfilled seat

It’s been like that for quite awhile

I don’t feel ready yet to smile.

I wish your laugh and wisdom’s word

Were still the pleasantries I’d heard

For times have changed, you’re gone away

I miss you more, day after day !

Who’d ever guess that I should be

Alone at last upon life’s sea,

I never thought that I would share

My dinners with an empty chair !

 

 

ASEA ( 2019 ) 2019/05/24

Our world is made of fantasy

Of wishes, dreams and ecstasy

Of worry, hope and dignity

With many other traits you’ll see

Despite how we may try agree

We are awash and blind asea !

 

DO WE DARE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/31

My heart is full, I cannot bear

The loss of ones no longer there

My day begins with hope and prayer

Away, the gloom of dark despair.

With those now gone, we shall compare

A memory that all may share

Tis now, by chance won’t seem unfair

We’ll carry on,  but do we dare !

 

 

 

 

A BETTER PLAN ( 2019 ) 2019/03/28

It happens every day I wake

My early morning “thankful” break

When I meet God  ’bout halfway there

And offer up a simple prayer.

There can be tears I must admit

Sometimes I  find it hard to quit

But even harder through the day

When I would rather run away.

That’s not an action worthy of

The special depths of mother love

I’ll have to learn as best I can

That God must have a better plan !
