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 !

 

 

 

“IF I BE ALIVE” ( 2019 ) 2019/02/28

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 !
