When I was young and words were few

Seems that I knew just what to do

I’d  “ape” the sounds  that I had heard

Turned out that each was but a word.

Soon I was there upon the stage

At rather quite an early age

With words and syllables to speak

Like some enchanted childhood freak.

I never thought  back in those days

That I’d wind up in high school  plays

I learned to sing and tap dance too

With  lessons from  the age of two.

Quite  long  I’d been an only child

Forever  charming and  beguiled

With discipline supplied on call

And kisses shared with every fall.

Today we miss what used to be

Safe childhood and security

Our faith is  great it’s  taught us this

All  lives were  meant to share God’s  bliss !

 

 

 

 

 

HEART AND HEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/07/04

I hear the whistle  on the track

It  seems to signal  “hurry  back”,

So  many  indications  sound

That help us to get all around

A  whistle blows,  a bell may ring

Birds  in the trees,  their voices sing

There is a  message  to be  heard

Tis  time to  treasure every  word

Be  ready to  accept the  call

We  know that  pride  precedes a fall

Take  care to  listen to  what’s said

And love  your God  with heart and head !

My dearest friend,  I miss you so

The depth far deeper than you know

The “used to be”, that is, once was

My heart was thrilled,  my days abuzz.

I still recall with no regret

Too many hours we shan’t forget

The little which we understand

Of all that lies in our command

Our tender days that ought to be,

Got lost within diversity !

The willows in the wood reach the ground

Stretching their branches down all around

The stars in the sky shimmer and shine

With greetings they bring to yours and mine.

This year’s ending with no alarm

Leaving us with past wealth and old charm

Let’s look ahead to days that soon come

Sharing with others a bit and some

Forgiving all our errors and sins

How wonderful each New Year begins !

One day you’re here and then you’re gone

While every other soul moves on

The time’s arrived when you are done

Tis soon an end to all begun.

There really is no second chance

Except for that last parting glance

So soak it up, the final perk

Tighten your belt and get to work !

The early dawn creeps o’er the hill

The world about seems calm and still

Tis all this peace at breaking morn

When hopes and dreams must be reborn

The silence brings a short respite

Escaping most of night times fright

As aspirations rise once more

To knock again on each front door !

 

 

 

KEEP UP YOUR GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/10/26

Tis true, tis true, all heaven knows

There is a feeling, grows and grows

We need You Lord, the night blows bold

Tis sad to think,  but youth gets old.

They too must trod this selfsame road

Perhaps bearing a greater load

Remember that each breath we take

Has many varied paths at stake.

Make sure each step is firmly gripped

Without a chance, footings have slipped

Take care secure one true regard

Think safety and keep  up your guard !
