A  little  bit of heaven entered my life one day

Seems  so very long ago  and ever far away

And  through all the many  years he grew to be a man

He  learned to live a life complete  as most  persons can.

Well  that was yesterday  and he’s gone, by now  you  know

Never  seemed to me that he  would be the first to go

As  I  recall  every  moment of what  used to be

And  of the life  we  knew like  an  ancient  history.

But  he’s no longer here and  I miss his gentle touch

I  remember  his last words ” Mom I love you so much  ! ”

I’m  so  full of  rememberings

All  of the joys that  childhood  brings

With  love  and laughter  by the score

That  may  live on  forevermore.

How  marvelous  those dreams may be

A  part of our  heredity

A  yearning  for the days of  yore

To  be just  whom  we were before !

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.

 

WHAT USED TO BE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/29

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 !
