There’s been so many friends along the way

That have gotten lost or have gone astray

While their faces blur and the names escape

Memories get caught in the charged landscape !

As the past rolls by and the time moves on

I will wait here like an old mastodon

In a silence that I would like to keep

Until I close my eyes in life’s last sleep !

 

 

 

LIGHT YOUR STAR ( 2017 ) 2017/10/10

We know super heroes are not real

Still they do possess this great appeal

To boys and girls either young or old

Loving  the action both brash and bold.

Make-believe can be a lot of fun

Perhaps not a dish for everyone

Let’s make room for reality here

To help us keep pace through every year.

Pretend is not a part of the truth

With which one hopes to imbue our youth

Learning early who you really are

Is the surest way to light your star !

Some place there is a winding stair

Where does it go I do not know

I’m only sure it will be there

When ’tis the time for each to go !

But what direction shall one take

For stairs descend or rise above

You have a choice, make no mistake

The coward’s safety or God’s love  !

When I was very young,you know

My special game was tell and show

There hidden ‘mongst so many things

Questions curiosity brings.

And thus I learned to query all

‘Bout wide or lean and small or tall

And always found the answer was

Like this or that or just because !

As I progressed along life’s way

I put my childish games away

Twas then that I did understand

All childhood dies in adult-land !

 

 

 

JOURNEY ENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/07/09

I’ve lived my life, its time has come

Some times were bad, some others fun

I’ve lived in shadows and in sun

The good, the bad, done and undone.

And now tis time to make amends

To heal the fences, speak with friends

We tarry on this road that bends

Until too soon our journey ends !

 

REALITY ( 2016 ) 2016/06/16

Repeated for hundreds of years or more amongst ourselves

Are stories of the jinn and little folk, fairies and elves

Reminding us that the mystery of life is just that

Charming and enchanted tales recovered from life’s magic hat

Teaching us morals and lessons of what our lives could be

Without losing attachment to our God’s reality !

 

GOD’S INTENT ( 2016 ) 2016/05/14

Times I have spent the lonely night

In front of fire by candle light

And watched the shadows on the wall

With quiet passion rise and fall.

I’ve felt the chill invade the room

Its fingers spreading cold and gloom

What mystery do we have here

I sense its movement growing near.

Beware my heart as truth can fail

And danger lurks beyond the veil

For what we seek as heaven sent

May be at odds with God’s intent !
