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 !

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 !




SPECIAL WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/03

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!”

I get so tired of all the pain

How I wish that I could start again

What I’d give to have a chance to be

Someone who lives in a world ache free

But that concept will not fly right now

I need learn to struggle through somehow

While faith in the Lord, a prayer or two

May part the clouds and help clear the view !

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 !
