For those of you who came to stay

And others who just went away

Some traveled far and wandered wide

And searched in vain the other side

But friends remember golden days

And cover them with sugar glaze !

 

AMEN.

The skeletons of life parade

Across the doorway of the mind

Where most decisions have been made

And chances, good and bad do wind.

The time is now, let us declare

The love of God is on our side

Before we channel, let’s beware

This cannot be a foolish ride !

Oh how I love those old time songs

Especially when ” she done him wrong “,

” Play it again Sam, just one more time “,

Or maybe a simple  ” Old Lang Syne ” ?

Never unkind or edgy or terse

Those pleasant tunes with their simple verse

True, most of it’s bush league, guaranteed,

As the dark stranger mounted his steed

” I’ll be back ma’am on another day “,

Turned his horse around and rode away !

 

REMINDS ONE OF JOHN WAYNE TYPE, EH ?

I hear the echo of the night

Secede to early morning’s light

Each day begins again anew

The world and I still miss you too.

As time moves on the vision fades

With faces lost in vast parades

While we who here remain behind

Have memories that will remind !

One page of life too soon will close

Beyond our fingers and our toes

‘Twill pass again this way no more

Without a tally or a score.

We must accept the burning fact

That there will be no turning back

Despite the depth or max of pain

We shall not pass this way again.

The time has come  to file away

Those memories of yesterday

Let’s place them in our private space

That God and time will ne’er erase !

 

 

PEACE FOREVER MORE ( 2018 ) 2018/08/18

It never once occured to me

When I was but a child of three

That memories of days gone by

Would crowd my head ere I should die.

Most instances are so complete

At times they knock me off my feet

Whoever dreamt that olden days

Would be the pleasure of old age ?

I thank You Lord, that You have cared

And softened all the blows we’ve shared

I pray whatever lies in store

Will grant me peace forever more !

In memory of

All those we loved

Who died that day

So far away

When after all

We still recall

The price they paid

For bringing aid

And peace to those

Who never chose

To start this war

Whatever for !
