There’s been so many friends along the way

That have gotten lost or have gone astray

While their faces blur and the names escape

Memories get caught in the charged landscape !

As the past rolls by and the time moves on

I will wait here like an old mastodon

In a silence that I would like to keep

Until I close my eyes in life’s last sleep !

I never thought I’d rue the day

Once that I gave my heart away,

I stored my dreams upon the shelf

With no reserve about myself.

This life I planned of magic theme

Would ne’er become idyllic scheme

It didn’t take too long to see

True happiness is never free

No matter how we try and try

There’s no kind way to say goodbye !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

Seems every morning sadness shows

Around the world the bad news flows

The madness strikes it grows and grows

From tippy-top to tiny-toes !

There’s no time left, we’ve lost our way

We cannot fail, not one more day

As angels in the clouds above

Extend to all unending love

Our Lord on high is waiting there

He feels our pain and hears our prayer

For there is nothing He won’t know

The world forgets, this is His show !

What is this hell that men call war

What is it they are fighting for

They’ve wasted so much blood and gore

We’ve known  it all and want no more !

 

I CAN’T FORGET ( 2017 ) 2017/03/28

My heart got lost so long ago

How that occured I cannot know

It was that war, I often think

That took our values to the brink

The young, the old, the in-between

Not one of us escaped the scene

It hollowed out each living thing

And in our lives did chaos bring

We took the test and some did win

Although too many were done in

And there were those, ones that I  saw

Who ne’er returned forever more

Oh Lord I wish I could  forget,

I haven’t mastered that trick yet !
