Oh foul device and evil  intent

Of those whose motive to harm was meant

With all of our tears that have been spent

God with purpose our lives reinvent !

My heart got lost so long ago

How that occured I cannot know

It was that war, I often think

That took our values to the brink

The young, the old, the in-between

Not one of us escaped the scene

It hollowed out each living thing

And in our lives did chaos bring

We took the test and some did win

Although too many were done in

And there were those, ones that I  saw

Who ne’er returned forever more

Oh Lord I wish I could  forget,

I haven’t mastered that trick yet !

Why can’t I remember or recall

All those precious times when I was small

When I sat upon my daddy’s knee

As he held me tight and talked to me ?

These memories are melting away

Just like my life, drip by drip each day

Oh what I’d give to capture it all

Sweet memories from when I was small !

The air is sweet with salted breath

It rises from the ocean’s depth

The summer storms have blown away

And left us this vacation day

The wind has slipt among the trees

Suggesting life is well at ease.

Some days are perfect, some are not

Some days remembered, some forgot

I hope one day to chance recall

That moment summer morphed to fall !

We live in dark and dangerous days

Beware of those preaching foreign ways

Remain steadfast to God’s own commands

Avoid the teaching of new demands.

The day expected is soon to come

Keep hold of your faith with its wisdom

God speaks to us and we must adhere

For His judgement day is too soon near !

 

 

FULL OF JOY ( 2016 ) 2016/03/27

When I grew up life was so hard

There were no swing sets in the yard

And baby sitters were unknown

Your parents left you home alone

There were no bathrooms in the house

You took the path to an outhouse.

We never minded that at all

Although at times I thought I’d fall

Into that abyss in the ground

Without a hope of being found

That’s how I learned to be so brave

Like all the candles I still save.

Yet life was real and full of hope

One didn’t in the darkness grope,

It made us strong and very wise

Our world was full of great surprise.

God gave us will to make a choice

To use our hands and heart and voice.

The stoves were big and black and bold

And kept us warm through winter cold

Each family had an icebox

No TV but a small voice-box

We cherished it, both girl and boy

Those days of old were full of joy !

I hear their voices calling me

Out of a past that used to be

So long ago and faraway

That unspeakable yesterday.

I was quite young how could I know

I lost my childhood quickly though

The words I heard, I can’t forget

At times I’m sure they echo yet

And temper all my actions still

I am convinced they always will !
