I wish, I wish that I could be

A magic fairy on a spree

Or Christmas star upon your tree

And if not that, a busy bee

To buzz around and set you free

So you may spend the day with me.

Thus from our pain we both shall flee

Before the queen sits down to tea

And other children can agree

The time is now to live with glee !

Sometimes the pain’s too much to bear

Sometimes defense is meant to share,

I’ve often wished that I could fly

On cushioned wings into the sky

Escaping earth and its confines

Midst all the angst that life defines

I understand as one earthbound

What I search for is not aground !

When life seems poorly, sad or tragic

Please try a smile, it works like magic

It is contagious as you can see

Most all folks react like you and me.

Have you noticed those whose mouths turn down

It lends faces that unpleasant frown

What a friendly picture it could be

To see a smile, maybe two or three.

Life certainly has both ups and downs

It would be great if we saw less frowns !

I thank you God for life is kind

There always is some good to find

Though painful days will sadness bring

Together with our suffering.

Sometimes we rise beyond the past

To find the calm we dream may last

For life is more than stuff or things

It’s full of joyous happenings

It’s peace and love, laughter and song

God’s world in which we all belong !

One cannot know just how I feel

About a war that was so real

There is no way I  will forget

All those sad days that haunt me yet

And sometimes when I’m in sleep land

The visions seem too close at hand.

I pray to God we’ll never know

The ugliness that from wars flow

Quite often when I’m at my ease

I beg of God, end all wars please !

My heart is torn and needs repair

Where e’er I look I sight despair

Oh gracious Lord, please bring us peace

And from this pain grant our release !

The mind has trod a narrow path

With subtle warnings nature hath

Endowed the shadows of the past

In tyrannies that failed to last.

We find ourselves in madness caught

Another lesson to be taught

Insanities surround us all

How shall we answer to the call ?

Our lives so very full of pain

When shall we feel alright again ?
