Oh  life that  was and  is no more

Has  tiptoed softly  out the  door

And  just as  peaceful  laid  to rest

Amidst  the  ages mongst  the best !

 

REJOICE IN PEACE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/15

The feelings that this season brings

Much like the songs God’s nature sings

Filling the air with scents and smells

That to us  all her  story  tells

While life, enhanced along the way,

Keeps growing better day by day

And helping us rejoice in peace

Before we meet our souls’ release !

The sun is fading in the west

At twilight time it’s oft the best

The colors all a vibrant scene

With sprays of magic in between.

How wonderful each evening seems

A part of all our finest dreams

So off to sleep as even falls

Ere mystery of nightfall calls !

The sun sinks low in darkened sky

Preparing soon to say goodbye

The wind has reached its all time low

With reticence here and below

The evening creeps, its silence taut

The stars keep blinking as they ought

Tis time to bid to all good night

Until we wake with morning’s light !

I had a dream the other night

And wakened with an awful fright

I felt the ground just slip away

While all my world lay in decay.

It seemed to me I was alone

Some place that was a danger zone

I rose quite slowly from my bed

To take a look around instead.

I said ” Thank you ” I am okay

” Please help me Lord to stay that way ”

I’ll be more cautious late at night

Who dreams to wake with such a fright ?

Stand back, stand back, you’re here no more

You’ll ne’er come knocking at the door !

Whatever’s left is God’s to take

No time for error, no mistake

The battle’s done, tis ended now

None can survive the exit bow !

 

REPATRIATION ( 2018 ) 2018/04/10

Our men who died on foreign shore

Ne’er to be seen forever more

They sacrificed to keep us free

Gave us the gift of liberty

And we shall try to bring them home

From foreign shores ne’er more to roam !

 

INTERMISSION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/28

I feel somehow a pending urge

As all my fears and passions merge

The path  to seek a higher road

Henceforth to carry life’s great load

And find a place where each may rest

Before attempting life’s contest !

 

ELUSIVE REST ( 2017 ) 2017/12/10

The snow is clinging to the bough

The weather’s turning cold and how

The winter chill cuts to the bone

I think I’d rather stay at  home.

I’d like to be inside for now

So I may  keep warmed up somehow

And pick a spot close to the fire

Therein imagine sweet desire

Where in the end life does attest

Our souls do seek elusive rest !

The night outside is dark and cold

I am so tired and far too old

Oh how I wish that I could sleep

But we have promises to keep

For in this world of let’s pretend

A few may care but more must mend.

 

Take a deep breath for a short while

Lift up your spirit, try a smile

Remember that the Lord is there

Depend on Him, He’s just and fair !

Dear Lord above, I’d like to know

When day is done where do You go

Is there one place that You’re fond of

Some hideaway or spot You love ?

So glorious it must be grand

A product of His own blest  hand,

How wonderful that God is The

Creator of  Eternity !

 

 

GOOD DAY ( 2016 ) 2016/10/07

There is a darkness that I see

It gently closes over me

The shades of night begin to fall

The shadows seem to cover all.

There is a quiet that I seek

And feel no need to eye or peek

There are no words that I must say

For now is time to bid good day !

I wish I knew a leafy bower

Where I might rest for but an hour

And there among those pleasant scenes

I’d pass my time and dream my dreams !

The walls are sterile, antiseptic clean

The floors are silent mopped by hands unseen

The night is long and chill and strangely stark

As tip toe feet cross these halls in the dark.

There is one thought that quickly flashes by

This is a place where few prepare to die

The air is still, but hear the humming sound

As thousands of machines do all surround.

Here nurses try to understand slurred speech

Dealing kindly with parts of pain’s release

Pray time does rapid heal without delay

As some won’t live to see another day !

I hear the wind it speaks to me

It’s hollow voice drones endlessly

The sound it makes is dark and deep

It has not learned to silence keep.

The power echoes in my mind

Where is this peace I sought to find

Perhaps I’m lost, I don’t know where

But for today, I do not care !

 

HIT PAUSE ( 2015 ) 2015/05/17

A little time to breathe the air

A little more just being there

A tiny space to think aloud

Like time to float upon a cloud

A moment with no purpose bound

And minutes where silence is found !

 

TO SLEEP ( 2014 ) 2014/11/05

The silence creeps into the room

Its magic soon all thoughts consume

The shadows fall upon the door

Then slowly settle to the floor.

It seeps into each lonely crack

To lure the quiet darkness back

And melts away into the night

As we arise with morning light !

 

GOD’S WAITING ROOM ( 2014 ) 2014/10/27

Well here we are another day

What is it there is left to say

Just one more spate of noun and verb

Some sweet, some kind and some acerb ?

Close to the end we wait on line

And query how we’ll spend our time

Will it be worth this last delay

Is there value in one more stay ?

We’ve had our chance of small avail

Do you believe that we shall fail ?

I’ll take no risk and won’t assume

Now I am in God’s waiting room !

 

THE INVITATION ( 2014 ) 2014/09/13

The wind comes rushing through the trees

So like a wild autumnal breeze

With chilly breath and frosted lips

That touches even fingertips !

Imagination floods the mind

Amongst the images we find

Those moments when we push away

We cannot face, no not today !

The morrow brings us renewed strength

To last the whole of one day’s length

God reaches out to us His cup

Inviting us to sip and sup !

 

I MUST FIND PEACE ( 2013 ) 2013/08/06

When the dark shroud of night has fallen from my eyes

And the pale light of early morn bids me arise

These strange thoughts assault the synergy of my day

And I’m consumed with one wild urge to run away,

I’m sure this world rests heavily upon my mind

And keeps me foreign to the peace that I must find.
