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 !

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 !

I wish there were another way

To chase this useless ache away

It matters not our needs today

What e’er occurs is come what may !

 

NEED HELP NOW ( 2018 ) 2018/06/12

I’m just so tired of all this pain

I  shall never be alright again

Seems every joint has its own complaint

What an ugly picture time does paint !

I won’t give in, that is not my style

I’ve plowed through this with a glued-on smile

Guess I’ll start the process right away

Can’t afford to waste another day.

Forgive me Lord,  I’ve forgotten how

To undo this pain and need help now !

 

 

OUTCOME IS A DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/03/24

Today I trudged along the road

While packing quite a bulky load

My spirit crushed by all the stress

My soul in pain, under duress.

I wish I knew what I should do

To help myself and see this through

At times I feel the battle’s lost

Since I can’t count the total cost

I’ll keep on trying to hold fast

This effort will not be my last

Since God and me are like a team

Let’s pray the outcome is a dream !
