My  heart is heavy,  laden down

As  my whole world  is turned around

My  face  is veiled and  hidden by

Shadows  of tears  I cannot cry.

The silence  of the  night  is there

To  masque  the cloak of fear I wear

Oh  blessed Lord  make my way light

Please  help me get  through one more night !

 

 

 

 

TO ANSWER PRAYER ( 2019 ) 2019/09/25

Oh charity,  be kind to me

Please help  me set  my body free

How much  longer  can I persist

What  shall I do  to pain resist ?

At  times  I’m sure there’ll be no  end

More like a life  without a friend

I didn’t think  I’d have to bear

Unending  pain  or deep despair.

I am not angered  or divorced

With all the  issues time’s  enforced

I only know  that  God is there

To ease all  pain and answer  prayer !

The past, it was, but is no more

It tip-toed out of my back door

And left behind so much regret

Twill take a lifetime to forget.

Though I don’t think it ever will

Until my heart at last lies still

I miss you now, it won’t abate

A mother’s love has no due date !

 

 

 

MY NEXT GOAL (2019) 2019/02/24

Of all the joys I’ve ever known

The ones I treasure as my own

Are those that I have always spent

Enclosed under God’s earthly tent !

Days when I’m sure I can’t go on

Because the pain is never gone

It tries my patience and my faith

But love of God keeps my heart safe.

And if I keep believing thus

Another day is one more plus

I must have hope to stir my soul

And make tomorrow my next goal !

 

THE LAST GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/23

My heart so full I cannot bear

The fact that you will not be there

There’s no warm seat by the fireside

Or any joy I feel inside.

The chimney’s cold, no fire is lit

I am so lost where e’er I sit

However long will this pain last

What will it take before it’s passed ?

I do not know, not you nor I

Or all the angels in the sky

What occurs when a loved one dies

And there’s no way left for goodbyes !

 

REAL LIFE IS HARD ( 2018 ) 2018/12/10

My life moves on, I’m still alive

And plan to think, react and thrive

I’m no fading bud on the vine

Nor am I some sweet valentine !

What e’er I am, there’s no mistake

I’m flexible, I will not break

The power in me comes from my God

Whose taught me this,  real life is hard !

 

ANOTHER TIME ( 2018 ) 2018/10/22

This child I held close to my breast

Has left me now to be at rest

His life  of pain at last set free

Upon God’s unrelenting sea.

This was his battle for too long

He tried so hard, he was so strong

But here we are, this is the end

I’ll miss you son, my life, my friend.

I doubt if we shall meet again

Another time, but where or when,

There’s none to know or even learn

Truth is, no one has e’er returned !
