There  is a joy the season brings

That dwells within rememberings

Of  times long  past and those to come

In  this old world so worrisome.

What  used to  be our yesterdays

Have  been recycled  to todays

And  we’ve recaptured  our best chance

To feel  again the  warm romance.

The world  that was,  has disappeared

To be  forgotten as we feared

Tis sad  that time  must runaway

To leave  but hours to  love and pray !

Could we but know the history

Of all God’s miracles we see,

That every minute of each day

Are playing out in grand display,

Oh, what a wonder we would learn

For every fraction of life’s turn.

As occurs here before our eyes

This program happens in disguise

The simplest flight of birds on high

Got their direction times gone by

God’s world is perfect as can be

Except for fools like you and me !

There is a joy that loving brings

With laughter and a smile that sings

A twinkle that does cause the eyes

To shine and light the darkest skies.

Keep positive in all you do

Remember lessons taught to you

Thank God each day for every gift

Beg Him to all your spirits lift

Take care you are divorced from spite

Continue prayers both day and night !

 

 

 

 

MY FRONT DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/12/19

Well, here it is, the early morn

Where shades of night melt into dawn

As shadows pale then disappear

Into the light now grown more near.

When I was young I found that joy

So vital to each girl and boy

My heart grew wings, I learned to fly

To heights that reached beyond the sky.

How little did I know back then

It never would return again

And wishes I’d been hoping for

All failed to knock at my front door !

 

 

LASTING MEMORIES ( 2018 ) 2018/08/30

When I  reflect  o’er my lifespan

And try hard as I ever can

There are these things I greatly miss

The sweetness of my mother’s kiss,

The pleasure of my father’s smile

He made my life a world worthwhile,

The treasure of each tiny tot

Whose hugs and kisses meant a lot,

Such moments cannot be erased

Nor somehow get to be replaced.

I know all this is from the past

These memories I pray will last !

 

 

SEE ME THROUGH ( 2018 ) 2018/08/15

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 !
