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 !

I have often thought of that early morn

After sweet Jesus as a babe was born

He was heralded by the stars above

Filled with God’s blessing and the angels’ love.

There in a foreign land so long ago

On a path that would lead this world to know

That He was the sign  we were waiting for

The key that could open God’s sacred door.

Oh, learn what a path that he had to take

To save mankind from poor Adam’s mistake

We need to remember once and for all

He’s sent to guide us so we do not fall !

Rage, rage against the breaking dawn

Rage, rage against the coming storm

And silent let the pressure swell

Unto the world our sadness tell,

This story of its own demise

That happens here before our eyes.

For what is there the heart must ask

To bring to us a greater task ?

Our Lord in heaven see and hear

The ending grows too close, too near !

 

 

 

 

THE BIRTH ( 2014 ) 2014/11/22

The stars shine bright

The moon’s aglow

 

The sheep bleat baa

The cattle low

 

The camels rest

The birds are still

 

All is quiet

Upon the hill

 

A brightness floods

The skies above

 

As we received

God’s gift of love !

 

IF I WERE A LION (2014) 2014/06/28

There are some times I’d like to be

A lion king who wanders free

Among tall grasses on the plains

With tawny skin and curly manes,

Ferocious roar and lazy ways

Keen sense of smell with steady gaze !

It might be great to share the den

With faithful Daniel way back when

He slept with lions in the cave

While God above did his life save,

Exposing those who compromised

And schemed to cause Daniel’s demise !
