THE SEARCH ( 2020 ) 2020/06/11

What  is  it  that  I’m  searching  for

Will  I  unearth  the  hidden  door

That  leads  to  God’s  exotic  place

Wherein  one  finds  His  secret  space  ?

Thus  live  my  life  without  the  pain

Of  losing  those  I  love  again

Seek  help  from  God  high  on  His  perch

Beg  Him  to  aid  me  in  my  search  !

 

GREAT DANGER ( 2020 ) 2020/06/01

What is this madness that we face

That’s taking up our total space

There is great danger spreading here

A danger that we all must fear.

Beware, because the Devil’s come

He is destroying everyone

This is a warning that’s come late

When ever will this hate abate ?

Oh Blessed Lord, we beg You please

Observe Your children on their knees

Reach out to all who are in pain

To save them from this world insane !

I’d like to spend my time imagining

What life is all about and reason why

The Lord decided it was smart planning

And gave us choices to help make us try !

 

SECOND CHANCES ( 2020 ) 2020/05/10

There remains certain moments we encounter every day

When we are at our leisure and the world’s prepared to pray

Aft the silence has been broken and eventide occurs

And times spent all together aren’t his or aren’t hers .

When all our simple pleasures are aligned there side by side

And the honeymoon is over without some silly pride

May the Good Lord take the measure of tasks already done

Guaranteeing life’s diversion twist happiness and fun !

THANX TO SECOND CHANCES

 

I AM SO WEAK ( 2020 ) 2020/03/28

There is a numbness that I feel

An emptiness that’s so unreal

Sensation lost and caring less

All part of my renewed distress

I am so weak, my strength is gone

Great effort just to carry on.

Oh how I wish to stronger be

And stand up to adversity

Perhaps one day I’ll find success

With God to teach me all the rest !

Take  a good look around and tell me what you see

The  beauty that is God’s and life’s  infinity

Please hold me by the hand and  teach me  how to pray

Help me to love God and to worship Him each day !

 

AMEN.

 

DESTINY CALLS ( 2020 ) 2020/02/18

The  shades of night  are closing in

As  skies outside  now fade and dim

There  is a hum  that one can hear

The  sound keeps  whistling on the ear.

A  silence  overides the  halls

While  darkness of the  night time falls

Somewhere  a hush has  settled down

As  clicking  heels reecho  sound.

Hush,  hear  the rale  of  breathing now

God  help me to  survive  somehow

The  quiet  of these  empty  halls

Until  at last,  destiny  calls  !

 

 

TIME TO SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/07

Oh, how  I pray that I  can  hide

These  tears  I shed  on the inside

For  all  God’s  children  that I see

Who  dwell in  abject  poverty.

They  never  really had a  chance

For  all their dreams  to be  enhanced

Or  find a  safer path to  take

That  guarantees  a better  break.

Our  Lord  is just  and answers  prayer

He  comprehends we all  must share

It’s  left to  us  to learn  and  teach

The  world we love  to  kindness  reach !

My  wishes for a pleasant day

To  you  are wending  fast their way

I  hear the  church bells  as they sound

With  joy and  worship  heaven bound.

For  all who  listen to  my  voice

Your  time’s  arrived to  make a choice

Choose  God  and learn how  to obey

To  love your neighbor  and to pray.

Be kind  remembering  the  need

Of  all God’s  children and their seed

For  all are  meant to  heed  His Word

And  cherish all that  they have heard !

 

TO ANSWER PRAYER ( 2019 ) 2019/09/25

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 !

 

MAGIC PILL (2019 ) 2019/08/18

Tags: , , , , ,

I’ve  often  wondered  what it  is  I’d do

If I  had the  chance to  begin anew

I’m  not so sure that I should venture there

Without someone Special  willing to care,

For life on  one’s own  can be a bit much

Especially if you have  lost your touch

How I do  wish that tomorrow may  bring

Another day with a sweet song to sing

To open  my eyes and  give me the will

To reach out to God for His magic pill !

 

 

 

 

 

 

DAY OF JUDGEMENT ( 2019 ) 2019/07/22

Oh blessed Lord, help me to find

The path that does to heaven wind

I want to aid and clear the way

For all of those who wish to stay

I can’t believe the time grows near

The day of judgement soon is here !

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 !

 

 

I BELONGED ( 2019 ) 2019/06/15

Oh little  birds you crowd my door

What is  it you  are waiting for

A bit of bread or  cracker crumbs

That from my kitchen table comes

Leftovers  from a  berry  tart

I meant for you right from the start ?

I want to  share my feast with you

The way most thoughtful persons do

The Lord above has taught us this

Some joys in life we must not miss.

Perhaps one  day when I am old

And all my senses have grown cold

You’ll sing to me your old time song

Reminding  me that I belonged !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TIME FOR CHOICE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/16

When I was young, my world brand new

There were so many things to do

So much to learn with time to share

With excess and enough to spare

Well, things have changed, it’s not the same

The world we knew now plays a game

I get discouraged, don’t you too

Have you decided what to do ?

It seems as though we have no choice

Until we learn to grow a voice !

 

AMEN.

Help me,  oh Lord, to find the way

Back home to You at end of day

Give me the strength to carry on

When all my energy seems gone

Show me the path that leads to peace

Where all my pain at last will cease !

It seems our nation’s drowning fast

The world at large appears aghast

Oh, tell us please what can we do

To save ourselves and cleave to You ?

Our time is slipping past too soon

The path ahead leads but to ruin

Let’s say a prayer that this won’t be

Another page in history !

 

 

DO WE DARE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/31

My heart is full, I cannot bear

The loss of ones no longer there

My day begins with hope and prayer

Away, the gloom of dark despair.

With those now gone, we shall compare

A memory that all may share

Tis now, by chance won’t seem unfair

We’ll carry on,  but do we dare !

 

 

 

 

A BETTER PLAN ( 2019 ) 2019/03/28

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 10:18 am
Tags: , , , , ,

It happens every day I wake

My early morning “thankful” break

When I meet God  ’bout halfway there

And offer up a simple prayer.

There can be tears I must admit

Sometimes I  find it hard to quit

But even harder through the day

When I would rather run away.

That’s not an action worthy of

The special depths of mother love

I’ll have to learn as best I can

That God must have a better plan !

 

PARADISE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/24

Once was a place called Paradise

It existed longtime ago

We knew it was special and nice

There is this book that told us so.

We often wonder, growing old

If admission there is still free

Or does it take a journey bold

For simple folk like you and me ?

Who knows what is tomorrow’s share

The most we can do is to guess

And beg our Lord to take us there

It’s the key to our happiness !

 

NO DUE DATE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/23

The past, it was, but is no more

It tip-toed out of my back door

And left behind so much regret

Twill take a lifetime to forget.

Though I don’t think it ever will

Until my heart at last lies still

I miss you now, it won’t abate

A mother’s love has no due date !

 

 

 

WHO STOLE THE WIND ( 2019 ) 2019/03/11

My dearest boy I miss you so

How sad was I,  you chose to go

Of all those dreams that you did spin

When did your fear of truth begin ?

Your spirits rose with every thought

How could your inner self get caught

With real foresight that you possessed

What was it cost you your success ?

Who was it told you all would fail

And stole the wind from out your sail ?

 

 

I SHALL MISS YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/11/07

I pray for you, my darling boy

With all the strength I can employ

There is no way I shall escape

Concern for you, to know you’re safe !

Whomever thought this heart would break

Knew right from wrong, make no mistake

I miss you now and ever still

To meet again, pray God we will !

 

 

 

BE SAFE SOMEHOW ( 2018 ) 2018/08/19

There’s so much sadness that I see

It hollows out the heart in me

Sometimes one can’t tell day from night

Or when the path turns left or right !

How does one question up or down

Or if it’s time to smile or frown

Just keep on easing forward now

Praying all will be safe somehow !

 

GOD WALKS BESIDE ME ( 2018 ) 2018/08/08

I have browsed through many a page of time

And wandered lost in the vast world of rhyme

I’ve traveled alone or in company

From ocean to ocean and sea to sea

And all that I’ve learned and all that I know

God walks beside me wherever I go !

 

AMEN.

 

A PRAYER OR TWO ( 2018 ) 2018/01/18

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

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 !

 

THE BEST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:23 am
Tags: , , , , ,

This dream of the young, our burden to bear

The weight of the pain, too heavy to share

As life comes and goes

The burden it shows.

The sadness we carry fades in dawn’s light

Like the leftover shadows of the night

Let’s pass the true test

And pray for the best !

 

GOD BLESS US ALL !

 

SPECIAL WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/03

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:51 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes the pain is so intense

I cannot aid my own defense

The only drug I wish to find

Is what’s propelling my own mind.

No complicated opioids

Nor any “cillins”  or steroids

I’m so much stronger than that crap

Who needs to fall into the trap ?

There are some words we all should say,

“Please help us Lord get through this day

Grant us the strength to overcome

The evil that this world’s become!”
