The  sun  is  fading  in  the  west

My  world  unravels  as  a  test

I  bear  the  weight  of  my  belief

Too  soon  there’s  nothing  left  but  grief.

Awake  my  heart  and  try  to  say

Great  words  before  you  melt  away

Like  Dorothy  ere  she  is  caught

In  winds  life’s  misery  has  brought.

Command  the  soul,  be  steady  now

And  to  its  pain   refuse  to  bow

Then  keep  your place  in  heart  and  mind

Until  God’s  rest  that  you’ll  soon  find  !

WALK WITH ME.

 

WHEN ? ( 2020 ) 2020/06/13

We’re  standing  in  a line  where  we must  wait

Tis  not  a  journey  we  anticipate

The  day  is  not  too sunny  nor  too  cool

Nor  meant  to  be a  space  for  fake  or  fool

So   here  we  stand  before  God’s  final  gate

And  wonder  how  much  longer  is  the  date

Before  we enter  into  paradise

Where  we’ll  no  longer  suffer  Satan’s  lies !

I’ve  wandered down  on memory lane

Hoping  to visit  old  friends again

Trying  to recall  what used  to be

Traveling  back in my memory

So  many shadows along the way

Of  all we have met here day by day

Celebrate  occasions one by one

From  early  morn till each  day is done !

Oh  little lamb  so pure and sweet

You  lay there  at your Saviour’s feet

How  long before  your time has come

Your  destiny  will be undone ?

We  each one have  to make our way

Learn to accept  it day by day

And  pray that all we  touch in life

Will  help to heal  this world  in strife.

Move on,  move on,  without a pause

We carry on,  it is the cause  !

Oh tell me Lord,  where do I go

What  is it that  I need to know

How  shall  I carry on each  day

Please help me  Lord,  show me the way.

With  all my heart,  I’m  not afraid

You’ve  taught me well,  I made the grade

I’ve  found  my  Comfort once  again

My  true Love and  Forever  Friend !

We do not know through all these years

A time so full of angst and fears

Is this the war from days of old

That ages have this story told

The one the prophets have declared

For which we now must be prepared.

Whomever dreamt that we would be

Faced by this great calamity,

May God have mercy on our souls

Help us secure our end time goals !

 

 

PATIENCE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/08

Throughout  my youth  and  ageing years

I’ve  known the  company  of tears

My  rainbow has  appeared at last

The  final role  my life has  cast.

I’m  still on hold,  accepting too

As  life has taught  me what to do

I  wish I  had  the  patience of

Each  saint  and  angel up above !

This life is full of mix and match

Grab anything that you can catch

Hold on  because you never know

What  opportunities  will  show.

It  may not  seem to  be enough

Though often when the going’s tough

There  is a lesson we  need learn

That each of us must  wait our turn !

Can you see the clouds all drifting by

While summer days, they do swiftly fly

The wings of time quickly fade away

Leaving shadows of lost yesterday

With those memories we shall recall

We have entered into shades of fall.

Past the windows of the mind we’ll see

Sweet beginnings of our victory

As the church bells toll for me and you

And the adventures we have been through

We shall face  tomorrow hand in hand

Prepared to enter Forever Land !

All of life’s good things come to an end

Please have no fear, oh my dearest friend,

As you and I have known far too long

In the scheme of time, where we belong.

I oft wonder where the days have gone

With all of those we’ve counted upon

Let us say a prayer and thank our Lord

Keep body and mind with one accord  !

 

LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/03

There was a dream that I once knew

When you loved me and I loved you

So long ago in years gone by

Before we had to say goodbye.

I stood there all alone that day

The day that God took you away

Somehow I didn’t comprehend

Was this the way our lives would end ?

Now here am I still standing tall

Awaiting God’s last curtain call

Stay with me Lord, I need Your strength

To get me through this final length !

A little bird whispered to me

The  secret  of  eternity

Have faith in God and trust His word

It is the best that all have heard.

We cannot doubt, we must believe

Have hope in Him, we shall achieve

Each has a goal, no two alike

From aged man to little tyke.

Like every flower that will bloom

With varied scent to fill each room

Or all the wings that fly on high

To reach our Lord in distant sky !

 

 

EQUALITY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/23

The rain it tumbles to the ground

There’s not a dry spot to be found

The wind it whips among the trees

Embracing  all the sodden leaves

The morning’s light turns into dark

The air about is still and stark

While clouds do pass and fade away

In  their  circuitous  display,

The seasons change from day to night

Without a  single goal  in sight

How simple all our lives could  be

Accepting  God’s equality !

 

 

THE ESCAPE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/24

Far in the distance I can hear

The sound of all the passing trains

The wail that echoes loud and clear

Repeating its wistful refrains,

Across this world the trains hold court

With language we can’t comprehend

In climates cold or damage fraught

Or crises we don’t understand.

Oh sad the trail of distance brings

To circumstance beyond our reach

It is the sound of dying things

The skill of God will soon impeach !

 

MAKE HASTE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/20

A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

I hear the wind, it stirs the trees

And whispers softly to the breeze

Please help me Lord because I’m lost

It matters not what e’er the cost

For I am old, prepared to die

And learning how to say goodbye !

I hear the chapel bells they ring

While songs of praise to God they sing

With sounds of joy aloud they shout

Their Hallelujahs reaching out !

Today is one more Holy Day

O’er which belief defends their way

And helps them on this steady path

With all the faith their passion hath.

These blessings keep them channeled in

To constancy and lack of sin

They do the job the best they can

To share God’s love with every man !

What is this sound falls on my ears

It is the echo of our fears

There’s no recourse, we cannot wait

Barbarians are at the gate !

 

WE HAVE TO WAIT ( 2018 ) 2018/09/10

The wind, it whistles through the trees

Staccato bristling in the breeze

The air is crisp, its clean and clear

Sounds of autumn fall on the ear.

The Ides of March have come and gone

And Labor Day has since moved on

Ere long it will be Halloween

With other days squeezed in between.

All lives serve seasons in their turn

Each with some lesson we need learn

Our victories may have no date

Sometimes we simply have to wait !

I’ve come closer to the truth in my simple ways

Then performers on a stage who come seeking praise,

I need no intervention, special treatment there

Only what is accepted in primary care.

Since time is on the move, I’d like to catch up soon

Anywhere at all between now and thirteenth moon !

 

SEE EXPLANATION:   13th Moon

“RETURN TO LIFE MORE SPIRITUAL AND HARMONIC”

Sometimes I think  I’m lost in space

Or living in a foreign place

Well, certainly no spot I know

No matter where it is I go !

It’s up or down and all around

It’s in and out or underground

Chock full of people with no couth

Millenials and most our youth.

How sad to notice, worse to be

Midst all this incivility !

 

 

 

DIVINITY ( 2018 ) 2018/01/22

I’ve heard the stories told by men

Of events took place way back when

Catastrophes of world wide note

About which men of science wrote

Sagas of danger we have heard

Chock full of facts in every word.

They spin tales of this our Lord’s  earth

In detail and for all its worth

Assured that God creates it all

Through summer, winter, spring or fall

I find in this no mystery

Just part of His Divinity !

 

 

 

A PRAYER OR TWO ( 2018 ) 2018/01/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:59 am

The storms of winter blow wet and wild

Enough to threaten both man and child

With the fury of weather’s power

Enough to caution both day and hour.

God’s creatures must hide or run away

As these conditions seem here to stay

There appears to be little to do

But sit back and say a prayer or two !

 

SAME TIME NEXT YEAR ( 2017 ) 2017/08/30

The sky is grey, the weather’s drear

Last days of summertime are here

The air is heavy, full of scent

I wonder where the sunshine went ?

Let’s sing a song of sweet goodbye

Take a deep breath and heave a sigh

The day’s arrived to pack away

Those remnants of our yesterday

I cannot promise I’ll be here

To celebrate, same time next year !

Sometimes I find I cannot speak

My voice grows thin, my limbs are weak

The spirit wanes, my hope grows dim

All I can do is wait for Him !

 

BLESSING FLOWS ( 2017 ) 2017/05/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:13 am

There is this thought that life is sweet

That happiness makes all complete

That beauty pledges joy unbound

And wealth does penury confound.

However there’s much more to bliss

Than finance or sweet passion’s kiss

A heart that feels, a mind that knows

A God  from whom all blessing flows !

 

 

TAKE CAUTION ( 2016 ) 2016/10/05

At times life hangs upon a thread

Or teeters on a word unsaid

Tense moments caught before a scene

Or shouted words just too obscene,

Who knows what happens in a flash

Or what may cause a fatal crash ?

Tis smart to always take great care

Be conscious of what, when or where

For life comes with no guarantee

Take time to think, wait, watch and see !

 

RENDEZ-VOUS ( 2016 ) For my friend Alison 2016/09/22

There is a garden in the sky

I’m sure of that, I’ll tell you why

For heaven is His special place

That mystifies the human race.

Just picture all the pleasures there

God stores His treasures with great care

He tends to all His flocks with love

And grants us peace here and above.

I know that one day you and I

Will rendez-vous somewhere up high

For all I’ll ever want to do

Is hear you laugh and be with you !
