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 !

There is a stillness in the air

I sense the chill invade my lair

It seeps into each lonely space

Hoping to find a resting place !

The altered times are yet to be

One needs to listen, watch and see

Keep vigilant and wide awake

There are no shortcuts safe to take !

With God’s vast wisdom as our guide

His patient silence at our side

We bide our time in hopeful prayer

Assured the Lord is always there !

Oh my soul, I have fear my heart will break

Oft life takes a toll or makes some mistake

There must be a path one will seek to find

To help bring some peace and a calm of mind.

In days to come one must learn how to grow

There are hopes and plans one may need to show

Like a garden unkempt choking in weeds

Needing great care and some water and seeds.

It’s a casual thought beginning now

Importance depends on our learning how

To implement life here along the way

No matter how short or long is the stay !

I wonder now if I was ever meant

To find lifes happiness and be content

Somehow the stars on high lost sight of me

Neglecting to secure my destiny.

While on my own I tried and failed alas

Each way I turned I met a wall of glass

I never gave up trying though I knew

It was so hard no matter what I’d do, 

Until I found the Master of my fate

Who taught me that it never is too late.
