Whatever war that has been fought

Tis one more lesson to be taught

For no one wins as each has lost

And every war does have great cost.

Sometimes it takes a lifetime long

To hear the ring of freedom’s song

There is a price that all must pay

To win the battle of the day.

Therefore when lives do meet their end

And each has chosen foe and friend

The choice one makes on that last day

Will stand forever,  come what may !

The day our Lord hung on the cross

Was when man knew his greatest loss

To us He was sincere and fit

King of us all of whom was writ

A man of faith and kindness too

Who came to save both me and you.

His suffering was hard to take

His mother vigiled at the stake

Imagine all the pain she knew

He was her child she loved Him too

Now there is nothing left to say

Except to love You more each day !

 

 

 

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 !

 

 

 

AS EACH ONE FALLS ( 2018 ) 2018/10/11

I hear the rasp of failing breath

The raling sound before one’s death

It fills the silence of each room

Predicting life’s eternal gloom.

Be not afraid, time soon will tell

That God has other plans as well

So simple and with much more ease

In passing over if you’ll please.

He will not fail, He always cares

He comprehends each one’s affairs

Remember Him, He loves us all

He’ll pick us up as each one falls !

 

MISSING YOU ( 2017 ) 2017/12/06

My dearest child where are you gone

What masquerade have you put on

Among the memories we’ve kept

Or midst the tears that we have wept ?

I’d like to know if God’s been good

And kept you safely as He could

For in your life you did no wrong

There seems no place you can’t belong.

My heart desires that you should know

Though you’re not here I miss you so !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IT’S ALL WE’VE GOT ( 2017 ) 2017/11/07

What madness does this world possess

That causes all such great distress

What petty nonsense fills our days

We’re sure is nourished by malaise ?

For eons we’ve endured the pain

And fought evil most times in vain

This has become the earth’s sad scourge

There’s no more action one may urge.

Now we are here with shattered dreams

Leftover tears and useless schemes

The best there is, it’s all we’ve got

With chances to succeed or not !

 

A SPECIAL PRAYER ( 2017 ) 2017/11/02

I see the flag o’er coffins draped

Our values and our nation raped

And youth that we look forward to

Who shall inherit all we do ?

These are the victims of the crime

That worsens with passing of time

Oh Lord, please say a special prayer

To save us from this dark despair !
