I’d like to believe all of my prayers

Will be reviewed by His crew upstairs

I keep on talking an awful lot

Cause talk and truth are all that I’ve got.

Perhaps I’ll write a letter or two

Where shall I send it,  I have no clue

Can I be sure that my every word

Will reach God’s ear or even be heard ?

I must continue trying each day

To speak my heart,  remember to pray !

 

 

 

 

MY HEART RECALLS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/18

I  left my heart behind so long ago

On a sandy beach where is doesn’t snow

Where the wind is brash and the waves ride high

And the cliffs above try to  reach the sky.

Now my heart still yearns for that touching sight

That I’ve dreamt about too many a night

In that foreign land far across the seas

Where our boys lie in graves beneath the trees.

I pray to God that we do not forget

War is the devil that we all have met !

The legs won’t move, they seem possessed

And cause great pain with no redress

The body aches and labors so

It is an effort  just to go.

With time all problems multipy

There is no way one can defy

The chronic ills that ageing brings

To life and limb and loads of things !

 

 

 

 

SMALL VICTORY ( 2017 ) 2017/07/19

Oh Lord sometimes I find I cannot bear

This useless pain I suffer everywhere

I’ve searched so hard to find another way

To force this endless ache to fade away.

My strength is gone and my courage got lost

As I feel myself in a tempest tossed

Dear Lord, what shall I do to set me free

Help me to score this last small victory !

 

 

 

EARTHBOUND ( 2017 ) 2017/04/26

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 !

This is God’s giant stage and we are players all

We tread upon the boards and pray we do not fall !

With all the nonsense we do see

We’re so thankful for our country

We have so much just look around

It is the finest to be found.

One nation of the brave and free

A bastion of our liberty

Which many now scheme to destroy

Whatever methods they’ll employ.

In truth our God is always there

To answer our unending prayer

And keep us safe no matter what

We pledge our lives and all we’ve got !
