LOST THE RACE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/27

The  morn is grey  and overcast

How  long will  this oppression last

There  is a silence  everywhere

One  needs a blade  to cut the air.

The  sky above  is masqued white

With  not a bit of clear  in sight

My  skin is  cool,  I feel  the chill

The  world  I live in  is quite ill.

The  tree limbs  are all stark and bare

With  ne’er  a bit of life out there

No  hint of green  left any place

It  makes me think  we’ve lost the  race !

Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !

 

 

 

 

OF SMALL CONSEQUENCE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/11

One’s  heart grows old  and  tired too

With  oh, so  many  things  to do

Before  I reach the end of  time

When  life will be no longer  mine.

I   close the book   and  ask my  God

Why  life has been  so very  hard

What  can I do to  make amends

To  family and  to my friends ?

I’ve  often  thought the  world we knew

Had  little time  to guide us  through

We  each  are of  small  consequence

And  leave to  God  our  self defense !

My  dearest friend I’m  missing you

With  all my heart  when I am blue

We were great friends through all the years

Times were we  laughed or cried real  tears.

Some days were good and  some were bad

We beat  the odds  though life was  sad

I  truly  wish  you were  still  here

For one last  time to bend  your ear !

 

MISS YOU.

 

NO GREATER COST ( 2019 ) 2019/08/31

I  see  the  patterns on  the wall

Of  where the rays of  sun do fall

Tis only  with a  mild constraint

One thinks about the fading  paint

But rather  all the joy  we find

When  sunlight flickers  through the mind

And raises  spirits  sometimes lost

To heights  without a  greater cost !

 

 

 

SACRED MEMORY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/05

This  day to me is  just so real

I  can’t explain  quite how I feel

My heart so full I think  t’will  break

There was so very much at  stake.

Ten thousand lost upon that shore

Who  t’were  not seen  forevermore

My  heart cries out,  I cannot bear

The  deprivation  we did share.

How many dreams were  lost that day

How  many hopes were  snatched away

Oh God above,  please hear this plea

Vouchsafe  this  day of  infamy  !

 

 

 

RETROSPECT ( 2019 ) 2019/05/13

Days come and go, they slip away

To morph into some yesterday

Where yesterdays forgotten lie

Reminding all of past goodbye.

Too sad that we cannot replace

Those memories of last embrace

As o’er the years of each regret

Somehow the pain we can’t forget.

Our vision dims, the picture fades

And we are here left with charades

That echo pain and misery

Of loving days that used to be !
