I hung my heart out on a limb

And prayed someone would reel me in

I searched for love the way one should

And wound up lost in some vast wood.

I tried my hand at show and tell

And that did not go quite so well

I decided right then and there

I’d had enough of grief to spare.

And so I bought myself a book

Turned out that I was this great cook,

Love’s not what it’s cracked up to be

Seems business was my destiny !

 

 

 

 

 

BOSS OF YOU AND ME ( 2017 ) 2017/02/24

I hear the wind so wild and cold

It shares a chill quite brash and bold

And struts its sound beyond the storm

Oh how I wish I could get warm.

I’d guess the forests need to sleep

While gusty winds do clean and sweep

It is a job of giant length

And needs to work at high pitch strength

For God owns all the powers that be

And is the boss of you and me !

 

 

 

WINDING STAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/11/19

Some place there is a winding stair

Where does it go I do not know

I’m only sure it will be there

When ’tis the time for each to go !

But what direction shall one take

For stairs descend or rise above

You have a choice, make no mistake

The coward’s safety or God’s love  !

 

 

 

NO RETURN ( 2016 ) 2016/09/07

We can’t go back, there is no way

To what was once our yesterday

When all we wished or hoped to be

Became forgotten memory.

Tis sad to see our former joys

Discarded there like broken toys

That line the cluttered roads we take

O’ershadowed by dreams we forsake.

Worse to believe that this is all

That’s left for us to chance recall

Those glory days which made us great

They’re gone and now it’s just too late !

 

CHANCE TO WIN ( 2016 ) 2016/08/18

There is this whisper that I hear

Sometimes it rumbles in my ear

And slowly as I rise from sleep

Into my mind the words do creep

I’ve learned to listen to that voice

And o’er the years I’ve made my choice.

Each morn becomes another day

A fresh beginning in its way

How wonderful our God has been

To gift us with this chance to win !

The lady in the harbor that we call Liberty

Stands waving her approval for all the world to see

She’s been there far too long on that island in the bay

Think of all that she has seen and what she has to say.

May the Lord in heaven look down kindly from above

Protecting our great nation and values that we love !

 

 

ONE LAST LOOK ( 2016 ) 2016/01/24

I know my life is not a dream

At times I simply want to scream

But God and I, we have a pact

There is no plan, it’s not exact.

So when my time seems overdue

And He decides that I am through

My usefulness on earth is done

For living is no longer fun.

When I accept that I’m bereft

And ashes are all I have left

Then is the time to close the book,

And with my heart take one last look !
