Oh little  birds you crowd my door

What is  it you  are waiting for

A bit of bread or  cracker crumbs

That from my kitchen table comes

Leftovers  from a  berry  tart

I meant for you right from the start ?

I want to  share my feast with you

The way most thoughtful persons do

The Lord above has taught us this

Some joys in life we must not miss.

Perhaps one  day when I am old

And all my senses have grown cold

You’ll sing to me your old time song

Reminding  me that I belonged !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SACRED MEMORY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/05

This  day to me is  just so real

I  can’t explain  quite how I feel

My heart so full I think  t’will  break

There was so very much at  stake.

Ten thousand lost upon that shore

Who  t’were  not seen  forevermore

My  heart cries out,  I cannot bear

The  deprivation  we did share.

How many dreams were  lost that day

How  many hopes were  snatched away

Oh God above,  please hear this plea

Vouchsafe  this  day of  infamy  !

Oh dearest friend, I feel your grief

I wish to proffer some relief

You close your eyes to bar the strife

That’s happening within your life.

An agile mind that used to be

Now chained by its infirmity

Oh dearest one, you’ve come this far

Try to remember who you are !

 

 

FAREWELL MY CHILD (2019) 2019/02/21

I really don’t know how to hide 

This sadness that I feel inside 

I’ve tried so hard to do it right 

E’en though I’m lost, night after night. 

The ache is there and won’t subside 

And all because my child has died 

Love’s all we’ve got no matter what 

The grief remains though we may not. 

I love you now, I always will 

Until my heart at last is still ! 

 

HAVE COURAGE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/06

Memory is a powerful tool

Not governed by sets of standard rule

A list of items hidden away

To safely keep for another day,

The human mind, a knowledge beyond

May save the secrets of which we’re fond,

A shadow here or a whisper there

Moments in time we chose not to share

These are the treasures that we may find

When we have courage to speak our mind !

 

INFAMY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/02

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 !

 

 

AN ETERNITY ( 2017 ) 2017/02/12

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 !
