I wish I were a  child  again

If  only to  remember when

We both were young, so long ago

And life was our own picture show.

We laughed and loved, it was such fun

For us  our world had just begun

Each moment  held a new surprise

It warmed our hearts and teared our eyes.

I’m  sorry  that it didn’t  last

But left  behind  its storied past

To still  tug on these old heartstrings

With sadness  that  forever clings !

 

NO CURTAIN CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/05/18

Some memories of long ago

They are still here, they come and go

Without them, how could we move on

For sure, the meaning would be gone.

It’s odd, the thoughts that take us back

Remaining on the proper track

Remembering those days we knew

When all were safe and faith was too.

Opportunity winged on by

With no time left for second try

We’ll have to make the best of all

Because there is no curtain call !

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 !

 

 

LET US REMEMBER ( 2019 ) 2019/04/28

Oh would that I could see my way

To finer times or better day

Recapturing moments escaped

And memories that we’ve  forsaked

Or that one might look forward to

Remembering how dreams come true

For joy’s composed of little things

That make us smile and lends us wings !

 

A BETTER PLAN ( 2019 ) 2019/03/28

It happens every day I wake

My early morning “thankful” break

When I meet God  ’bout halfway there

And offer up a simple prayer.

There can be tears I must admit

Sometimes I  find it hard to quit

But even harder through the day

When I would rather run away.

That’s not an action worthy of

The special depths of mother love

I’ll have to learn as best I can

That God must have a better plan !

 

HAPPINESS AND CHEER ( 2019 ) 2019/03/10

How softly falls the gentle rain

That trickles down the window pane

Reminding us that spring is due

Before the Lenten days are through.

As Easter wears her coat of green

And early buds burst on the scene

The trees prepare for all the guests

Who’ll need to gussy up their nests.

Oh what a joy for us to bear

With such great memories to share

As spring returns again this year

To spread its happiness and cheer !

 

 

THOSE ASHES ( 2019 ) 2019/03/09

Hark, what is it that I now hear

The sound of sleigh bells on my ear

Their ringing sounds so ever sweet

Oh how I pray they do repeat.

The tinkling of the bells anon

Reminding all that time moves on

Twill come and go and leave behind

Those ashes of another kind !

 

WHERE IS THE END OF SADNESS ?
