WHEN ? ( 2020 ) 2020/06/13

We’re  standing  in  a line  where  we must  wait

Tis  not  a  journey  we  anticipate

The  day  is  not  too sunny  nor  too  cool

Nor  meant  to  be a  space  for  fake  or  fool

So   here  we  stand  before  God’s  final  gate

And  wonder  how  much  longer  is  the  date

Before  we enter  into  paradise

Where  we’ll  no  longer  suffer  Satan’s  lies !

We  need  one  man  to  lead  us  now

We  need  this  special  sacred  cow

To  him  we’ll  give fidelity

He  is the one  who’ll  set us  free.

Let’s  raise  our  voices  to  thank  him

To  save  us  from a  future  dim

He  offers  us  another  choice

To  help  our people  and  rejoice.

We’ll  hail this  chief  and  pray  for  him

Because  he  takes  it  on  the  chin   !

I ask You, Lord, to comfort me

While this old world is still not free

Give each a turn to stand up tall

Before the times wherein we fall.

Show us the mercy that You gave

To all the Saints that You have saved

And grant us peace ere we must die

Without a fragile last goodbye !

 

BLESSING OF HIS LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/06/04

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 !

 

 

 

EXCITING INDUSTRY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/09

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 !

 

 

 

AFT I AM DEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/04/27

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 !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SURRENDER ( 2019 ) 2019/04/16

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 !

 

LOVE AND SHARE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/02

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

What parent would their obligation waive

To save their child from complications grave ?

An admonition we’ve known from the start

About what God holds sacred in His heart,

This father’s son asking for bits of bread

Would give his child a bit of stone instead ?

 

 

 

DOWN TO A MAN ( 2017 ) 2017/03/31

Our lives are cast in many ways

With results for all of our days

No one may change what has begun

For history’s been set and done.

We hope and pray we do not fail

And of our strengths we shall avail

So each will do the best he can

To fill that role down to a man !

Isn’t it amazing we are living on the brink

With each and every moment of how we breathe and think

We’ve been taught to earn our keep in the old fashioned way

And we are growing better with what we do each day

The lesson we have learned is that God is always there

While He watches over us and does our burdens share !

 

THAT LAST DAY ( 2015 ) 2015/10/06

A man stood by the lintel on that historic day

I’m sure that he was sorry he chose to pass that way

And there among the soldiers with rabble gathered round

A man collapsed on the path and hit the stony ground.

On his head he suffered a mock crown made of thorn

His body bore the scourges, his garment wet and torn

The stranger he came forward to give this man relief

He helped him drag his burden just like a common thief.

The stranger’s name was Simon from Cyrene he had come

Who guessed we’d know his name for two thousand years and some,

His courage and his kindness played well on that last day

While our Lord Jesus died in that place so faraway !

The graying cloud of morning mist

Sweeps over one like angels kissed

With dewdrops wet and breeze caressed,

The body seems by calm possessed !

The still of dawn is best of all

To seek the charm of nature’s call

And learn to listen to the voice

That echoes sounds of each one’s choice !

It is to God we owe our vow

To heed His words both then and now !

 

HEAVEN, EARTH AND HELL ( 2014 ) 2014/04/29

My hopes fly high on magic wings

To where the sea and siren sings

Along that wild and rocky shore

Replete with tales of ancient lore.

Men lost their lives and were remiss

Scheming for this forbidden bliss

Tis truth exists, they play the game

Refusing to acknowledge blame.

While life seems wanting, to be fair

We all must learn to give and share

To search for less destructive ways

Save dreaming for idyllic days.

The siren’s song was long ago

Perhaps a fable seamen know

But we are here with truth to tell

About the heavens, earth and hell.
