There  is a joy the season brings

That dwells within rememberings

Of  times long  past and those to come

In  this old world so worrisome.

What  used to  be our yesterdays

Have  been recycled  to todays

And  we’ve recaptured  our best chance

To feel  again the  warm romance.

The world  that was,  has disappeared

To be  forgotten as we feared

Tis sad  that time  must runaway

To leave  but hours to  love and pray !

 

 

 

SAVED ( 2019 ) 2019/11/02

What  I  leave behind,  of little  note

Are so many  words,  through life,  I wrote

Perhaps  some  few that you may here find

With  time through  memories,  shall  rewind

My  heart is true  and  oftimes  quite  sad

Because  I miss all  that I once  had

I  thank  the  Lord for the  gifts  He gave

And  the joys  we knew that each has  saved !

 

I’LL REMEMBER YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/10/27

Oh  blessed Lord, see how my heart grieves

When  another of Your  children leaves

This  generation has missed so  much

No  love or kisses,  no  tender touch

A  prayer or  two for what  used to be

And  a hint  of things we’ll  never see.

I  beg You  Lord  to find him a  place

Help  him to rest  in  a  special  space

Show  him the  love  that  he’s  never known

Treat  him as if  the sky were his home

Answer  his queries best as  You can

Help  him  remember he  died a man !

TO MICHAEL WITH LOVE.

 

YOUR FRONT DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/10/15

I’m  looking through the window glass

Observing  as  my  life  rolls  past

Still  wondering where I  have  been

Or  if  I’ll pass this  way again ?

How  strange is life  when  one is  young

And from  the  heart,  love’s song  is sung

The  words still echo  on  my ear

They bring me calm  and soothe  my fear.

Be  kind  dear  Lord,  now  that  tis o’er

Too  soon  I’ll  knock on Your  front door !

 

 

SUMMER SKIES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/04

Today  we rose to sunny  skies

While not  expecting  some surprise

The winds that blew seemed well behaved

Tree limbs and  branches all were saved.

Soon autumn will  reach our front door

And summer breeze will blow no more

Before too long the year shall  pass

Like shadows in the  looking  glass

Oh  Lord,  give  all the  pow’r  to rise

Once more to sight  sweet summer skies !

 

 

 

HEARTSTRINGS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/07

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 !
