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.

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 !

 

 

WHO STOLE THE WIND ( 2019 ) 2019/03/11

My dearest boy I miss you so

How sad was I,  you chose to go

Of all those dreams that you did spin

When did your fear of truth begin ?

Your spirits rose with every thought

How could your inner self get caught

With real foresight that you possessed

What was it cost you your success ?

Who was it told you all would fail

And stole the wind from out your sail ?

 

 

NO CHOICES ( 2019 ) 2019/01/28

Regarding all life’s pain and ache

I’ve found my heart close to a break

Select a path which each must choose

And for this once walk in my shoes

The complex part aft all’s been done

Is sadness that does one o’ercome.

However long this life may be

There’s but one judge of thee and me.

Tis true for those who’ve gone away

There is no option leave or stay !
