Sometimes the heart is more inclined

To seek respite and courage find

Among the days of lesser times

When this world bode in older climes.

For where we are, not where we’ve been,

Is caught in chance and grief and sin

There’s scant honor left, we may find

In all the hours to still unwind.

Oh blessed Lord,  take care that we

Escape this time of infamy !

Oh for the road not traveled along

And the memory of an old song

With a tune that cuts right to the core

And melodies of forgotten score,

Like a fragile view of times long past

With all of those things that could not last

On this lonely road exclusively

That leads one to an eternity !

One thing I’ve learned and must never forget

That here in my path is a challenge yet

There is too much to see and much to do

Before my turn here on this earth is through !

There are those thoughts that slip away

Into the realm of yesterday

Deep hidden midst one’s memory

Like moments caught in reverie

At times drawn from the saddened past

To seek those dreams that did not last !

Too often in the twilight as day begins to fold

And all of life’s real stories prepare to be retold

There rises intermission when nighttime hushes all

As somewhere in the distance a vision is recalled.

Now we are brought again to the stories of the past

Where tales of our commission were never meant to last

And in these final moments as life does fade away

We’re left with the decision of what we have to say.

Farewell to all our colleagues, both family and friend

And if we’ve ever hurt you, please know it is the end

There will be no tomorrow this is a last goodbye

One final wish we ask for, remember do not cry !

 

MONUMENT ( 2016 ) 2016/09/11

There’s a wall rises by the sea

That resonates past treachery

With fountains, trees and marble cold

And names to last through eons old.

Remembering this is our choice

Our dead shall never lose their voice

But cry aloud so all should hear

There’ll be no tyrant here to fear

This is our home twill ever be

Land of the brave forever free !

.                 (  TO HONOR THIS DAY )

I’d like to think where e’er you are,  you hear the bugle’s call

And know we’re missing you from mid-November through next fall

I see you in the twilight just before the even’s pall

It’s with morning sunlight rising I miss you most of all !
