Of all the words that have been writ

There is but one  that covers it

Of all the feelings man does know

There is but one that all must show

For love it  is that grows and glows

Straight from our minds unto our toes

And brings to each that God-like worth

The blessings of His love on earth !

From my front window I can see

The most exciting industry

All of God’s creatures hard at work

With not a single one who’ll shirk

How marvelous that it must be

Assured our God provides for thee.

Tis true that neither you nor I

Have  the  ability to  fly

But we are charged by destiny

To help His creatures remain free

This has been so since ages past

Let’s help the system work to last !

I see the flag, it flies on high

Its standards reaching for the sky

The wind whips round its colors bright

Tis true it is an awesome sight.

There is a chill runs down my spine

Convincing me that we’ll be fine

Quite sure each time I fall asleep

I have these promises to keep.

And if I die before I wake

There is a vow you must not break

Command  my ashes to be spread

Along the shore aft I am dead !

The Ides of March have come and gone

And gave us nought to wish upon

We are defeated and undone

With no place left for us to run.

How shall we make our way today

When there’s no place to hide away

Surrender is the one true path

To offer God all that we hath !

 

 

ANOTHER’S LOAD ( 2019 ) 2019/04/09

Tis strange there is no rest at all

For those who stumble or who fall

Or those who’ve willed their lifetime call

To carry someone else’s ball !

Oh Lamb of God, what shall I do

With open heart,  I come to You

The hour is late, the night is old

My pains increase as time grows cold.

I long for sleep, the morning nears

I need Your help to stem my tears

And wonder if my faith will last

Despite this spate of winter’s blast ?

I beg You God to bide with me

Through thick and thin, eternally

I pledge my word for those who care

That with Your love we learn to share !

 

 

 

RELOCATION ( 2018 ) 2018/06/13

I acquired a friend quite recently

Who lives just across the room from me

Whereby my pillow I constant see

His acrobatic activity.

He lives in this house made of thick glass

He makes no noise and doesn’t harass

A more perfect mate one could not ask

Although his presence creates small task.

He requires a meal but once a day

Always remains clear out of my way

Daily the water starts to turn gray

Friday’s the day we flush dirt away.

I still have this friend at my address

I pray he moves soon so I can rest  !

 

HIS NAME IS PHELPS, A BEETA FISH
