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 !

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 !




WISHING ( 2016 ) 2017/01/31

I’ve dreamt about that garden where sweet Jesus took His last walk

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