Oh,  for the days that  were and  are no more

And  those paths  that lead us to heaven’s  door

May  God be there  to greet each  as we come

With  an open heart  and the word welcome !

Whomever  thought I would live to be

Alive  in  another  century

How  fast all the years have whizzed on by

With a  tender shrug and  a sad goodbye.

While  I’d  like to believe  it’s okay

Trying  to pursue  another  day

In  a world  I neither fit nor last

Since the  twentieth  century’s  passed !

AMEN.

Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !

 

 

 

 

TIME’S RUN AWAY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/05

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 !
