Often our dreams get whisked away

Ere each one has a word to say

Too many wishes we have seen

That  fall into the cracks between,

The saga of a life  close to

Its pending end and what to do

We’ll find a spot to set aside

For this our last and final ride.

Our  dreams and wishes are just that

A chance to wear another hat

But if you choose to praises sing,

Get set to catch the big brass ring !

 

 

 

 

LIFE IS A GAMBLE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/07

I’ve trod the road uncounted miles

And shed more than a million tears

While time evoked a thousand smiles

As life revealed a hundred fears.

I cannot know the why of it

From each angle life has displayed

I only know I hope to fit

Before all of my cards are played !

 

HELP FOR STORMY DAYS ( 2018 ) 2018/08/12

Dark storm clouds gather up on high

While shafts of light shoot cross the sky

The rain it tumults to the ground

And fills each crevice to be found.

The thunder and the lightning roar

As darkness creeps inside the door

The streets are full of glistening streams

That flow forever, so it seems.

All lives encounter stormy days

Both cold or sad in countless ways

With this exception each may take

God helps us up before we break !

 

LIFE’S DISTRESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/13

Our aims got tangled and went adrift

The spirit’s drowning and needs a lift

While our dreams have somehow gone astray

Pray this confusion soon melts away.

At the root of all that we believe

And a part of ideas we conceive

May the love of God instill great peace

And from life’s distress grant all release !

 

 

END OUR RUN ( 2017 ) 2017/02/20

And so our days just roll on by

Some with a tear, some with a sigh

Now there are times when it’s worthwhile

That all of us employ a smile

And so we move from day to day

Accepting life as come what may

Though hoping truly that our dreams

Are not as distant as it seems.

These dreams are made of fluff and stuff

Perhaps we cannot get enough

But time will know when we are done

Twixt tears or cheers, to end our run !
