Dear Lord, I’m glad that you are there

To hear my ever constant prayer

My mother told me long ago

That when I asked, take care to know

Because You answer each request

With what You deem to be the best

The answer will be “yes” or “no”,

“Wait for a little while or so”

“Or give us something else instead”

That covers everything she said !

Perhaps it will be best if we don’t see

The shadow of a life that used to be

For all concerned it might be better still

Bid welcome to God, accepting His will.

The time is short as all lives do run out

Some with a whisper and others a shout

Now whom of we, when the curtain is down

Will greet the Lord with our face in a frown ?


LOVE UNBURDENSOME ( 2018 ) 2018/03/19

Oh curly top, oh curly top

I wish that I could truly stop

The thoughts that roll around my head

About the moments aft we’re dead.

I’d like to think that we all sleep

Until the hour tis time to reap

The future that each one deserves

Depending on how well we’ve served.

I’m sure God loves us one and all

As we who answer to His call

There will be space for all who come

To share in love unburdensome !

The time grows short there’s no mistake

With little left, our world may break

What is the sense to carry on

With nothing more to wish upon

Except for those who hope and wait

To reach beyond life’s golden gate ?


WHAT WE DO SOW ( 2017 ) 2017/02/18

Dear Lord above, I love you so

So much I see, so much I know

I cannot wait until that day

When all our debts we must repay.

Though most may mourn or curse their fate

In truth with me, I cannot wait

There will be more that’s yet to come

God’s gift to grant or take from some.

The promise always has been there

Of love and peace and joy to share

The prophets promised long ago

We’ll only reap what we do sow !

The day is coming soon enough

The road’s been rocky, steep and tough

Is this the day that’s still to come

When angels gather only some,

To lead them into fields of gold

Where words of God resound untold

And man may reach his glory road

Where all His wisdom glows and flowed ?

Our Lord shall rule from up above

The air we breathe instilled with love

And so it is and so ’twill be

When all of earth at last is free !

There is a valley through which each must pass

Where all the minutes sift through God’s hour glass

The journey will be neither swift nor fast

As there is none to know how long twill last,

Make ready my soul, for the die’s been cast

This role that we play, both varied and vast !


A BLESSED REWARD ( 2014 ) 2014/01/09

The winter winds do fill my space

They chill my heart and sting my face

The air is like a frigid blast

I hope its strength cannot long last.

The open fields seem bleak with snow

Where do the timid creatures go

When winters length remains too long

And spring delays her joyous song ?

There’s much to learn if we can see

Some pattern in our destiny

That wings to us a message clear

Hold on to faith dispel the fear.

God will not fail He loves us still

We need His care, His word, His will

And if we do all that we should

We’ll find our lives so blessed with good !
