It does seem odd that you and I

Are simply strangers passing by

We’ve spent our days upon God’s earth

Testing our values and their worth.

We’ve come this far to validate

The things we love and some we hate

Our time is brief and waning fast

Tis now each move may be our last.

Oh Lord we’re grateful that You’ve heard

And need the courage of Your word !

I see the willows in the wind

They flutter wildly to and fro

The leaves and branches slightly thinned

With lacy arms all swaying so.

The wind does whip through all the trees

That bend and twist before the gale

And feel the crispness of the breeze

As it fast fills each waiting sail !

There is no way to halt the sun

Until life’s time on earth is done

And so we praise its warming rays

Else what would light our every days ?

This system is God’s master plan

We comprehend as best we can

He is the Lord and Leader too

And what He bids is what we’ll do.

It matters not if we agree

He rules for all eternity !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT WRIT YET ( 2017 ) 2017/02/02

I wonder if those words I hear

Whispered so softly in my ear

While I am half asleep in bed

And murmurs swirl around my head,

I find I’m caught within this spin

Of all the lines I must fill in.

Sometimes I cannot keep the pace

The words seem to get lost in space

And need a sort of safety net

To catch those thoughts I’ve not writ yet !

 

OLD MENS’ WAR ( 2017 ) 2017/01/21

I knew a boy quite long ago

There was a war, he had to go

He was so green, his life was new

How could he guess what he’d go through ?

I did my best, he was my friend

And wrote to him right to the end

How hard is it to turn away

When there is nothing left to say ?

Except you did your extra best

And hoped and prayed bout what came next

The wars will come and wars will go

What is the reason, who can know,

You’ve heard me say these words before

Why must youth die in old mens’ war ?

 

SING SONG ( 2016 ) 2016/10/17

Well, thoughts are things and birds have wings,

Feathers come from geese and egret

The sparrow trills,the robin sings

And crows caw too loud in regret.

The skylark sings when sailing high

As falcons swoop from lofty nest

The hawk, he zooms up in the sky

Although I think the owl’s the best !

The lonely dove does pine for love

While the eagle mates forever

The world is round, blue skies above

Can that change the outcome, never !

The winds that blow and bring us snow

Seem without rhyme or reason

And force most birds to southward go

Till we reach a better season !

With all I’ve seen and all I know

Please help me Lord so I may choose

The path ahead, the way to go

The proper tools that I may use !

There is no fear since You are there

You’ve kept me strong a lifetime long

Each day I’m pleased to pray and share

And thanks to you now I belong !
