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 !

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 !

Our America had its birth you know

Over two hundred forty years ago

Through the thunder, lightning and fire we grew

Into this nation of red, white and blue

In the rockets great glare we won the fight

And created a star that shines so bright.

With welcoming heart and book in her hand

The Lady in Green in the harbor stands

As she holds the torch for all who will see

This home of the brave and land of the free !

Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

 

DO NOT FORGET TODAY   9/11/2001.

 

FADE AWAY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/25

There’s little time for childish games

As now most face true adult aims

The chances lessen day by day

For those who choose a calmer stay.

More stamina is what we need

If all God’s values we pay heed

Remember life is here to stay

It’s only we who fade away !

There is this dream in which we’re caught

Wherein our hopes and fears are fraught

A place where passions that we knew

One day at last will follow through

To fold us in God’s circle of

His unabashed enduring love !
