Oh Lord, there is  so much  pain  I feel

It  goes on  and  on,  forever  real

I  cannot  escape its iron  grasp

With   each  breath I  take,  it’s  like  my last.

Sometimes  I think it  would better  be

To  close my  eyes  in lost victory

Because  this needs all  the strength  I’ve  got

One of those   days that  I’d  rather not !

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 !

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 !

 

NO DUE DATE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/23

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 !
