Sometimes the world seems upside down

Sure makes it hard to get around

Sometimes we notice small mistakes

Let’s fix it fast before it breaks

Sometimes we find we’re not that smart

But we possess a giant heart !

Oh tiny babe so full of grace

You’ve a sweet smile upon your face

Because you’ve heard the angels sing

While you are peaceful and sleeping

They whisper loving words to you

To keep you safe the long night through.

Oh how I wish that I could be

A child just out of infancy

And hear those blessed angels sing

Their praise of God who is their King !

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD !

At peace, a child of God am I,

I yearn to see His banner fly

I’ve followed Him along the way

And have not begged a longer stay.

I know that He is always there

Assured He answers every prayer,

He holds my life in His own hand

With Him I’m sure all will be grand

I close my eyes the time draws near

My heart is full I have no fear !

Little children small and tall

Our dear Lord does love them all

Babies in their tiny beds

With pleasant dreams in their heads.

Laughing tots play in the park

Scooting home before the dark

How I wish that I could be

Much like them trusting and free !

 

KISS AND TELL ( 2014 ) 2014/03/02

It appears to me that the times just fly

And so like the wind, seem to pass us by

With a gentle nudge and a fond farewell

Without as much as a brief kiss and tell !

Thus having spent my last remaining days

Safe in the arms of past forgotten ways

Like memories of a familiar place

Or the lost vision of some cherished face.

Soon we arrive at the departure date

The time grows short and the hour’s grown late

We must say our goodbyes without ado

Knowing I have left all my love for you !

 

MY NANA ( 1945 ) 2013/06/11


 

I’ve loved you God since I was small

Because my Nana told me so.

I loved you when I grew quite tall

And heard the stories I now know.

Because she said you did it all

With kindness and a loving heart

And meant the world to heed your call

To love each other from the start.

I wish I’d learned how not to stall

I’ve tried to follow where you go

The path is long most seem to fall

I know, my Nana told me so.

There is so much to tell to you

I know not where to begin now,

Think only thoughts that can be true

For it will be alright somehow,

Some day, somewhere, I’ll come to you,

And we’ll begin where love did end,

Our ebbing love far stronger grew

As tears their strength did power lend.

Until that day once more we’ll meet,

The long and lonely years forgot,

While life shall seem so incomplete,

I beg of you, forget me not.

 

This deed of horror and outrage

Remember not that I have done,

As time will heal, all pain assuage,

That grief need not your luck forerun.

 

To you I’ve willed the hidden plague

That suffers man his whole life through,

I loved you more though manner vague,

Possessed of heart unfaltering true.

I cannot say the why of it,

I only know that time won’t fade

This ache which bides with me unfit,

My heart must walk in loveless shade

Until I share once more with you,

And through this dark and dreary cast

That to my dying day I’ll rue

I’ll need you most, forget you last.

The saddest dream, long gone astray

Would that it might be now undone,

These simple words my will convey,

As I loved you, love I your son.
