When I am gone the same wind will blow

The sun will shine and the stars will glow

It matters not what the night will do

Since I am gone and can’t be with you.

But you must keep on just as you should

With all of your dreams faithful and good

Remembering me if you so choose

Whether you win or whether you lose.

And if you forget, that’s okay too

The world still moves on, that much is true

I want you to be pleased with your life

Happy in love and minus the strife.

May God bless you and keep you secure

Loving and healthy, honest and sure !

I  hear the words  ringing in my ear

So  soft and sweet and quite  full of cheer

A  great big smile  and a happy face

One  heart  full of love  none may  erase

God  bless us all and bring  each one peace

And  from life’s  burdens  help  grant release

We  need  assistance to keep us free

Please  lead us dear Lord  to  liberty !

Oh  life that  was and  is no more

Has  tiptoed softly  out the  door

And  just as  peaceful  laid  to rest

Amidst  the  ages mongst  the best !

The sky is blue  without a cloud

Hear all the birds  chirp out aloud

The air is fresh  and clearly sweet

There are no strangers  on the street,

A subtle breeze  blows all around

The leaves are  drifting to the ground

There is much  beauty  all may see

In  nature’s great  serenity  !

 

 

 

REJOICE IN PEACE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/15

The feelings that this season brings

Much like the songs God’s nature sings

Filling the air with scents and smells

That to us  all her  story  tells

While life, enhanced along the way,

Keeps growing better day by day

And helping us rejoice in peace

Before we meet our souls’ release !

 

SWEET DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/14

The sun is fading in the west

At twilight time it’s oft the best

The colors all a vibrant scene

With sprays of magic in between.

How wonderful each evening seems

A part of all our finest dreams

So off to sleep as even falls

Ere mystery of nightfall calls !

 

 

 

 

BY CANDLELIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/11/15

A simple meal by candlelight

To take the chill off winter’s night

A table set with antique lace

Warmed by the glow of an embrace.

The silence that accompanies

This sudden chill before the freeze

While God and man try to maintain

The quiet calm that shall remain !

This morning as I staid abed

Loud outside noises filled my head

Seems there’s to be no peaceful end

To all this sound and frantic blend

As clanging, banging seems to greet

That drilling action in the street

Oh would to be in some sweet glen

To find my world at peace again !

I hear the sound of distant drums

Too soon the problem this way comes

Let’s gird our loins and standup tall

We’ll brace our backs against the wall.

Too late we learn there’s no redress

It’s not that easy, I confess

Tis better far to peaceful be

And smoke the pipe to victory !

I’m waiting for the waning light

To join the nothings of the night

As quiet settles over me

Increasing life’s tranquility

The silence hovers still and stark

How comforting I find the dark !

There was a place that I loved best

Besides the sea, at water’s edge

So many hours that I spent there

All types of weather, foul or fair

I learned back then to patient be

Accept God’s will and wait to see.

Well that was then and this is now

I have survived life’s storms somehow

There’s this advice I offer you

To thine ownself  be kind and true !

Can you hear the tumult of the wind

It whines aloud  that it be let in

The shutters tremble, the shingles roar

Can you feel the rattlng of the door ?

The mighty wind blows so fierce and loud

Where it gets caught bullying each cloud

Why won’t it move in a calmer way

And save its power for another day ?

Oh tiny babe so full of grace

You’ve a sweet smile upon your face

Because you’ve heard the angels sing

While you are peaceful and sleeping

They whisper loving words to you

To keep you safe the long night through.

Oh how I wish that I could be

A child just out of infancy

And hear those blessed angels sing

Their praise of God who is their King !

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD !

So now my Lord, the curtain falls

It’s gently slipping down the walls

The silence flowing all around

Leaves ne’er a whisper to be found.

The light is dim it barely shows

Its shadows all seem to have froze

Tis time for us to catch our sleep

And conjure dreams that we may keep !

 

THE PAST 2016 2016/10/22

Oh for my life that used to be

When I was young and truly free

With all those passions I did feel

The foolishness and thought unreal.

I spent my life much like a child

Manner sweet and a temper mild

It took a lot for me to pout

I never felt I was left out

How I do wish that I could find

A place to leave the past behind !

 

 

GOOD DAY ( 2016 ) 2016/10/07

There is a darkness that I see

It gently closes over me

The shades of night begin to fall

The shadows seem to cover all.

There is a quiet that I seek

And feel no need to eye or peek

There are no words that I must say

For now is time to bid good day !

 

 

NO FEAR ( 2016 ) 2016/03/15

At peace, a child of God am I,

I yearn to see His banner fly

I’ve followed Him along the way

And have not begged a longer stay.

I know that He is always there

Assured He answers every prayer,

He holds my life in His own hand

With Him I’m sure all will be grand

I close my eyes the time draws near

My heart is full I have no fear !

The wind is in the willow

the dew is on the ground

God is in His heaven and

His peace is all around.

 

TO SLEEP ( 2014 ) 2014/11/05

The silence creeps into the room

Its magic soon all thoughts consume

The shadows fall upon the door

Then slowly settle to the floor.

It seeps into each lonely crack

To lure the quiet darkness back

And melts away into the night

As we arise with morning light !
