WALK GOD’S WAY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/30

Oh  blessed Lord,  I am so sad that I

One  day will soon be forced  to bid goodbye

And  so to leave here with one fond farewell

Hence to the world our sad,  sad story tell.

While  all the dreams  one dares to dream are due

We’re  not without the help and  care from You

We  beg of You to trust each in this way

Thus  join our hands and walk  God’s path today !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A FATHER’S LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/26

Once was a man  that I had known

When  I was young and not full grown

Long time ago  and far away

Another  life,  another  way.

 

He was a man  of honest pride

Direct  and sweet,  sincere  inside

I  miss him still  and ever will

He holds that place  none else can fill.

 

And  if I live one  hundred years

Or have to face one  thousand fears

There  is no one  I’ll ever meet

Who  shall my father’s  love unseat  !

 

HE’S PROMISED ALL ( 2019 ) 2019/11/08

The  Word of God  shines  bright and clear

Sincerity  rings  on  the  ear

And  leads us to  the proper  way

To  mend our lives  as we  do  pray.

The  lessons  learned and manners taught

Are  those that  have our freedom  bought

If  we accept this  gift  He  gave

He’s  promised all,  our souls  He’ll save !

Oh Lord,  protect us from our sin

Open  Your  heart and let us in

Please  hear our every  humble prayer

And let us  be  sure that  You’re  there,

Life  is so full of  joy we know

Because  tis true,  You love us so !

 

AMEN

How simple all our lives might be

If wrapped in God’s security

So we could make the truth our goal

And bury  lies in some  vast  hole.

T’would  save us  all from Satan’s reach

And to the world a lesson teach

That all may know of God’s intent

And to our lives danger prevent !

Come see our flag, it flies so high

A  living  legend  in  the  sky

Declaring with its strength and might

It  is the  symbol  of our  right.

Thanks for this gift from God above

We pledge you our enduring love

And  try  the best that we all can

To serve our God and fellow man !

There’s not a day that passes by

When each one’s dream may bid goodbye

There’s not  a night without a star

Reminding us how near or far

The journey of our lives will be

In terms of our expectancy.

For we are here a short time all

Without control o’er win or fall

It is the Master of our fate

Who knows our exit and its date !

The world outside is dark and grim

I beg You Lord, please let me in

It matters not what I shall eat

Or whom it  is that I may meet.

Tis only in the shadow of

Your all consuming constant love

That all my hopes and dreams can be

Some part of life’s reality

I promise now that I will do

What e’er You wish that pleases You !

 

AMEN.

 

AN ANGEL’S PROMISE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/05

The angels up in heaven cry

For all the babies that will die

Ere all their lives have yet begun

In agony as one by one

They feel the thrust of surgeon’s knife

Before the ending of each life.

Our dearest Lord,  have mercy on

These tiny victims that are gone

Help all who’ve suffered from the crimes

To rise again in kinder times

There find the promise of God’s love

And help from angels up above !

 

 

ETERNAL LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/04

Outside my window I can spy

A flock of birds exiting by

The day is crisp, the air is sweet

Perhaps the winter’s in retreat.

Can you hear water dripping down

It makes this happy joyful sound

And melts into a drip, drip, drop

That seems somehow to never stop.

What if tomorrow does not come

To all of us but only some

Tis time to thank our God above

For sharing His eternal love !

There was a man that I used to know

He was my gardener long ago

A man of honor and good intent

Who said exactly just what he meant.

True, I knew he was a man of God

And back in those days that was not odd

He went about his work with great ease

His goal in life was to help and please.

A kindly man full of deep respect

Not an inch of ground did he neglect

His parting words I can still recall

They never changed, no not once at all.

He taught me a lesson that does survive

” See you tomorrow, if I be alive ” !

 

THANK YOU, JOHN ATANASIO !

The sun it rises in the sky

Preparing to bid morn goodbye

The day progresses faster now

Soon twilight will appear somehow.

The sun does sink beyond the trees

The moon it rises with dark’s ease

The stars above sparkle and shout

Tis now the time for faith devout !

Oh Solomon, where is thy wisdom now

What confidence your heart and you allow

What kindness does it take for you to live

With all that wisdom that is yours to give ?

Oh foolishness beyond your every dream

Are you as true or only that you seem ?

 

REMAIN TRUE ( 2018 ) 2018/08/25

There is an echo that we hear

It speaks to all both loud and clear

Remember for each time we fall

The will one needs to stand up tall

Lies in the grace of God above

Who showers us with selfless love

While all we’re asked our lifetime through

Is to His virtue, remain true !

 

ANTICIPATION ( 2018 ) 2018/07/17

There is this dream in which we’re caught

Wherein our hopes and fears are fraught

A place where passions that we knew

One day at last will follow through

To fold us in God’s circle of

His unabashed enduring love !

 

 

 

EACH NIGHT AND DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/18

The dark we’ve seen is bleak and bold

Its purpose is too bare and cold

This world we live in lacks the care

Who opts to choose to reside there ?

Where does one go to seek a life

When all about face nought but strife

It’s not too late there’s still some time

To save us from such godless crime ?

There is one place that we may hide

To keep us free from fears outside,

Tis only God who knows the way

To guide our lives both night and day !

Where is it that I find myself

I’ve wound-up here upon the shelf

As obsolete as one can be

Just waiting for eternity !

 

SAME TIME NEXT YEAR ( 2017 ) 2017/08/30

The sky is grey, the weather’s drear

Last days of summertime are here

The air is heavy, full of scent

I wonder where the sunshine went ?

Let’s sing a song of sweet goodbye

Take a deep breath and heave a sigh

The day’s arrived to pack away

Those remnants of our yesterday

I cannot promise I’ll be here

To celebrate, same time next year !

Oh my dearest love what shall I do

To make sure that I am there for you

I’d like to think that you would rely

On my best efforts to get you by

In spite of my fallibility

I promise you, you can count on me !

 

 

 

 

 

WHERE IS THE DREAM ( 2017 ) 2017/06/23

Do feel the sun, its warmth is there

As is the scent upon the air

That flutters sweetly on the breeze

And waltzes lightly through the trees

Oh pleasures all, where have you gone

Where is this dream we’re counting on ?

 

 

 

HE DOES NOT LIE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/06

Whatever is it that I spy

Is that a rainbow in the sky,

The colors are so crisp and clear

Is it the first for me this year ?

Those seven colors that I see

Bring such great joy to giddy me

Red, orange, yellow, green and blue

Indigo and violet too.

Quite a vision that all may share

I wish that I could fly up there

And touch that rainbow God did paint

To find out if it is or ain’t.

God left His mark there in the sky

Reminding us He does not lie !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOPE IS NOT DEAD ( 2017 ) 2017/03/16

At times I feel that I cannot last

Until this current winter has passed

There are no plans that I wish to make

No celebrations or birthday cake

No special outings or travel plans

Or any trips to some foreign lands

I’d rather stay here close to my home

Then venture out or decide to roam.

Now as I trek to the local store

I may find just what I’m searching for

There is a chance if I’m very good

That somewhere near in my neighborhood

Perhaps one corner under some tree

Popping through snow as bold as can be

One tiny crocus will rear its head

Promising all that hope is not dead !

 

 

 

WHAT WE DO SOW ( 2017 ) 2017/02/18

Dear Lord above, I love you so

So much I see, so much I know

I cannot wait until that day

When all our debts we must repay.

Though most may mourn or curse their fate

In truth with me, I cannot wait

There will be more that’s yet to come

God’s gift to grant or take from some.

The promise always has been there

Of love and peace and joy to share

The prophets promised long ago

We’ll only reap what we do sow !

And wished how I could have been there to witness His farewell talk !

My heart is true, my mind is fair

I know God’s love is ours to share

With simple tasks and friendly deeds

Kindness fulfills all of our needs.

The way is clear and straight ahead

His road to Paradise instead

Awaits us all who patient stand

In line to reach His promised land !

 

LOVE AND CARE ( 2016 ) 2016/12/20

I ‘ve often wondered what is in store

As we daily walk out our front door

What shall we see or happen upon

What can we find, perhaps stumble on ?

I’d like to think that there is a chance

To seal a great deal or find romance

Or maybe to make a brand new friend

That we each may keep until life’s end.

Whatever it is let’s pray we win

As bon chance begs us to enter in

Remember God will always be there

To guide us to hope and love and care !

We found ourselves in wilderness

Two thousand years ago

And knew the road to our success

Did need God’s love to grow !
