What would You do to save us from

The storm we know is soon to come

How will You guard us, help us rise

Above this hell that’s in disguise ?

We need You now, teach us to care

That we may all Your wisdom share !

The dark of night moves in with ease

And snuggles till the morning  breeze

The angels of the night will fade

And rest until the evening shade.

The dawn arrives to welcome day

The world’s  alive and kneels to pray

God bless us all and make us whole

Improve our times and save our soul !

My morning thoughts are crystal clear

They help discern why I am here

How shall I know the path to take

To live  my life void of mistake !


MAGIC PILL (2019 ) 2019/08/18

I’ve  often  wondered  what it  is  I’d do

If I  had the  chance to  begin anew

I’m  not so sure that I should venture there

Without someone Special  willing to care,

For life on  one’s own  can be a bit much

Especially if you have  lost your touch

How I do  wish that tomorrow may  bring

Another day with a sweet song to sing

To open  my eyes and  give me the will

To reach out to God for His magic pill !







TO OPEN DOORS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/16

Seems  I’ve not  known the   comfort  of

A world  steeped in God’s  peace and love

There’s ne’er a day to  pass us by

Without  excuse for one to try

I’ve wished so long to understand

It takes more than a sleight of hand.

We need some hope that we may win

A fair chance to  again  begin

Or knowledge where the pitfalls are

Before we  try to  reach  a star

What is it we are  searching for,

God’s  magic touch to open  doors ?



SPECIAL TRUST ( 2019 ) 2019/02/09

I’d like to take this time to say

Thanks to you who helped share my day

And all who left while others stayed

Became my friends or passed away.

I’ll miss you all and hope you know

My prayers are with you as you go

Each one of you has taught me this

That life’s comprised of tears and bliss.

What matters most, as time rolls by

That we, in hope, good sense apply

For friendship is a crucial must

A gift of love and special trust !




SEARCH FOR LOVE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/15

We’ll smile a smile or sing a song

Join a chorus or laugh along

Please take a chance, what can you lose

How does one know the path to choose ?

The little child that each once was

Teenagers that will challenge cause,

The old, infirm or oddly gruff

Like those who’ve known a road more rough

These are what life is composed of

They dream of peace and search for love !

Today is such a lovely day

So full of Spring in every way

My mind is clear, the air has bounce

I need embrace it every ounce !

The buds are blooming everywhere

Their fragrance permeates the air

Oh what a joy our God does bring

To each of us with newborn spring !

There is great joy that words may bring

Words that can cause one’s heart to sing

Sweet words that need remembering

Like peace and calm and happening.

Those gifts conceived that cannot wait

Like ice cream cake on lacy plate

Or breakfasts that begin at eight

With maple pancakes tasting great.

Christmas stockings filled to the brim

When all our blessings are from Him

A helpful thought, a kindly deed

An effort sought for those in need !



WILL I BELONG ? ( 2017 ) 2017/05/18

One man he trod the road to peace

He prayed to God to grant release

And bowed his head unto the ground

Until some solace could be found.

He raised his eyes up to the sky

To see if heaven gave some reply

The wind blew hard, the rain it came

He cried aloud and called God’s name,

Forgive me Lord, for I’m not strong

One thing I ask, will I belong ?

Who is there left for man to say

Come let us walk the Shepherd’s way

To join into His special flock

That from this place will evil block.

We are His army to command

That stand and wait on His demand

There is a job that we need do

We’ll begin now and see it through.

There is no other way to win

The world is dying heaped in sin

Help us, oh Lord show us the way

To earn ourselves another day !






TO THE FUTURE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/20

There is a task that we all must face

If we’re to rescue the human race

For what are we if not mortal men

Who’ve fallen down and shall rise again ?

There is a tall price that must be paid

For all of the plans that we have made

Twill take men of a greater calling

To ease the harm that’s now befalling.

This nation awaits in its dire need

For plans of our future to succeed !


GOOD DAY ( 2016 ) 2016/10/07

There is a darkness that I see

It gently closes over me

The shades of night begin to fall

The shadows seem to cover all.

There is a quiet that I seek

And feel no need to eye or peek

There are no words that I must say

For now is time to bid good day !



SECURE ( 2016 ) 2016/10/06

There are no cares I wish to share

My thoughts this day seem quite threadbare

I’m feeling worn this early morn

A bit unsteady and forlorn

Perhaps today I need more sleep

I’ve obligations I must keep.

I know that I’ve too much to do

Sometimes I never think it through

I try so hard to give my best

And fear that I won’t pass the test

One can’t lose heart of that I’m sure

But with God’s help we’ll be secure !



GOOD FRIENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/10/02

We’ve been good friends for many years

Through smiles and laughter, doubts and fears

We have been up, we have been down

Hugs and kisses, at times a frown

I’ve often thought what shall I do

Without a pal who’s just like you ?

It’s been so long that I’ve forgot

What life would be if you were not

And so today I want to state

That we are buddies soon or late

Whatever else may chance to be

I’m here for you when you need me !

Now I have trod a long, long road

Upon my mind this heavy load

My burden is too great to bear

I can’t be sure if I’ll get there

It is Your help I’m searching for

A beggar here outside Your door.

I only hope that You will hear

My urgent plea upon Your ear

And comfort me so that I know

I shall have peace before I go

As You assume the burden of

A mother’s last unfettered love !

The winds of change blow loud and long

I hear the call both wild and strong

While in my mind the challenge grows

From my head down unto my toes.

My heart’s in pain and agony

There is no help that I can see

This world I’ve known melted away

Please help me God, I’ve lost my way !


ETERNALLY ( 2016 ) 2016/06/15

My heart is heavy and so sad

For those whose lives have turned out bad

We can’t assess where lies the blame

Our duty is to help the same.

Who knows what pain victims may bear

There is great need for us to care

For we are all one family

Children of God eternally !

Where are you going little mouse

Rapid sneaking around each house

In the halls you skirt and scurry

Rushing always in a hurry.

You seem to move so very fast

The world you know is not that vast,

Appears that God has met your need

And granted you some extra speed.

I wonder what you’re looking for

As you do scoot from door to door

Oh little mouse with tiny feet

Sad that your life ends in defeat !



GREATER GOALS ( 2016 ) 2016/01/12

How sad it is upon this day

That childhood soon must fly away

The dearest gift a child may find

Is someone who is of like mind

The search is long, it’s journey fleet

And sometimes it is bittersweet.

Tis better still as we do grow

Into the adult all should know

To leave our wayward cares behind

As need and purpose doth unwind

While hidden there amongst the shoals

Are finer truths and greater goals !

The stars shine brightly through the night

The planets veil themselves from sight

The moon plays hide and seek up high

The winds do moan and heave and sigh

The world at best seems lost in space

And cannot seem to find its place !


THERE WILL BE MORE ( 2015 ) 2015/12/17

Life is so very precious, oh my dear

Embracing faith helps keep our God quite near

I see His stars that twinkle in the sky

Reminding me there is this force on high.

I’ve not been blinded by the far-off lights

They’ve been my company too many nights

I lie abed before my eyelids close

And sometimes count my fingers and my toes

Still joyous count God’s blessings by the score

Knowing if I have need there will be more !

The winds of change surge cross the land

To spread their message where they can

They purge the very air we breathe

With time they may the pain relieve !

I miss you Mom it’s been so long

All through the years our bond was strong

Though you’ve been gone for quite a while

I still remember your sweet smile

And all the love you gave to me

When times were dark your torch was free.

Thanks for your help in those bleak days

Together while those boys were raised

You always shared that wise advice

You taught me how to compromise

I’m glad that I was there for you

Now you are gone, what shall I do ?

I pull the words out of the air

There are so many words to share

Some words are good and kind and sweet

While some are mean, fierce, incomplete.

Of all the words I’ve ever used

I shy away from those confused

And try to stick to making sense

As nastiness has no defense.

I pray that God and I agree

Of all our words there are but three

That humans, angels, heaven too

All need to hear, that’s “I love you.”

I saw an owl perched in a tree

“Whoo, whoo “, he seemed to speak to me

Oh, mister owl you look so grave

Is there a way I should behave ?

I’d like to know what I can do

To ease the course of life for you

Or is this world in such distress

You’re here to bring an S – O – S ?

I’d really like to help you out

Leave me a sign or make a shout

If you’ve a message to relay

I’ll speak to God without delay !


A FARMER’S PRAYER ( 2015 ) 2015/04/13

The sun was hid behind the hill

It’s glimmer rose both bright and still

And warmed the air in its ascent

While hope to its surround was lent.

Be grateful that this winter’s gone

Allowing us to carry on

There are so many tasks to do

Lets tackle all not just a few.

We’ll say a prayer that this will be

A season of fertility

Perform the best way we know how

To till the land and tend the plow.


LOST SHEEP ( 2014 ) 2014/09/16

The cradle clings unto the branch

This cannot be pure happenstance

But is the work of stronger hands

T’will bring about the Master’s plans !

Tis strange that we who have no worth

Bethink ourselves the salt of earth

While dung we are in our pursuit

Of evil gain and heartless loot !

The children who inherit this

Denied the blessings of kindness

Are the lost sheep now gone astray

Who need God’s help to find their way !
