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 !

A minor thought does come to mind

Outside these walls what shall I find

A world that’s cruel and much unkind

The foolishness of dumb and blind,

Society that’s gone to waste

A place devoid of any taste

That flounders in unthinking haste

On ideals that are wicked based !

Oh how I love to hear the rain

It helps me feel so whole again

And when raindrops splash on my face

I think I could win any race.

I’m sure it’s best when all is mist

You feel as though you’re being kissed

Caressed by unseen angels there

Who show us each how much they care.

The rain is like the precious touch

Of all that’s gone we miss so much

I wish that I might just reach out

To give a hug, a squeeze, a shout,

Most rain reminds me what I’ve lost

My Lord You know the price it cost !

 

 

 

 

ALL BIDE WITH ME ( 2017 ) 2017/01/10

The moment that I rise from bed

Old memories do fill my head

I am back home when I was small

And dad is whistling in the hall.

 

Mom’s hanging clothes upon the line

The wind is crisp, the day is fine

The children shreiking in the yard

Makes hearing conversation hard.

 

While Nana’s praying in her room

Pop’s sweeping sidewalks with his broom

The smell of onions fills the air

As dinner waits to be prepared.

 

My world gets smaller day by day

As those I love all pass away

And will to me this legacy

They bide with me in memory !

I’d like to think where e’er you are,  you hear the bugle’s call

And know we’re missing you from mid-November through next fall

I see you in the twilight just before the even’s pall

It’s with morning sunlight rising I miss you most of all !

My heart is wild, I know the tune

I hear the sound midnight or noon

It echoes sadly aft we start

Before life ends or lives must part !

 

TOO NEAR ( 2016 ) 2016/05/23

Rage, rage against the breaking dawn

Rage, rage against the coming storm

And silent let the pressure swell

Unto the world our sadness tell,

This story of its own demise

That happens here before our eyes.

For what is there the heart must ask

To bring to us a greater task ?

Our Lord in heaven see and hear

The ending grows too close, too near !
