I’ve seen the world about me cry

And heard its whispers of goodbye

I’ve felt the tremor of its fears

All through these recent lonely years

I’ve known the truth and heard its lies

And seen them revel in disguise.

I’ve prayed for help in my distress

And been denied proper redress

I’ve hoped that opportunity

Would visit soon and set me free

But most of all I’ve asked of You

Dear Lord above, please see me through !

 

 

EARLY MORNING ROUNDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/09

A glow of orange floods each room

To banish all life’s doom and gloom

The sun’s rays bouncing off the cots

If they are filled or they are not.

The morning stirs, the day begins

We cannot know who’ll lose, who wins,

The halls are quiet like a mouse

There are few sounds about the house.

I hear tip-toes along the hall

A squeaky wheel, a pregnant stall

The silence drowns my every thought

Too sad this spot where some are brought !

The air is fresh, it smells so sweet

I feel like dancing on my feet

But that’s a little premature

Since I’m unsteady, insecure.

I smile a lot, what should I do

Be grateful when each day is through

Hold on to dreams, we’re not yet done

Let’s pray  there is lots more to come !

 

TRIUMPH O’ER DEFEAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/14

This world is crashing all around

Please tell us if you hear the sound

The thunder roars above our head

We cannot hear what e’er’s been said

There still is time left to escape

We need locate our hero’s cape.

Oh Lord we seek some help down here

The path ahead looms dark and drear

Please send us aid on winged feet

So we may triumph  o’er defeat !

 

WINTER WINDS ( 2015 ) 2015/12/14

These winter winds embrace the night

While we all snuggle and sleep tight

Under blankets or handmade quilt

That wizened hands with love have built.

The winds do whistle through the glass

Reminding all of life’s morass

Our patience is required now

Pray we survive these times somehow.

For longer than we care to think

Our future trembles on the brink

The Lord is there and knows our plight

And safekeeps us throughout each night !

 

SOUND THE TRUMPETS ( 2015 ) 2015/05/24

It is not peace we’re searching for

Our peace won’t come before God’s war

What we need now is Joshua

To sound the trumpets with his corps !
