Dear Lord above please set us free

From much of life’s indignity

Please teach us now how to survive

These terrors which all seem to thrive

Be thoughtful of each act performed

And to the rules try to conform.

Be kind to those who are alone

And left to linger on their own

Beg God remember everyone

Whose suffering is not yet done

Protect us Lord from daily fright

With rising sun to closing night !

Oh tiny babe so full of grace

You’ve a sweet smile upon your face

Because you’ve heard the angels sing

While you are peaceful and sleeping

They whisper loving words to you

To keep you safe the long night through.

Oh how I wish that I could be

A child just out of infancy

And hear those blessed angels sing

Their praise of God who is their King !

At times I’m lost, deep in a trance

And searching for another glance

To prove that life will still advance

To some safe place one takes a stance

I’m wishing that this may enhance

The chances of our last romance !

for those of us who never rest

and feel the world upon their chest

these are the words i say each night

before i hold my pillow tight

i ask my God for those to bless

to keep them safe and make redress

then one by one i say their name

forgive all things there is no blame

and last of all i bid adieu

to all my faults both old and new


i love you mom


PRECIOUS DAY ( 2014 ) 2014/08/16

The children play down in the street

I hear the sound of running feet

Their laughter rises in the air

Oh how I wish that I were there !

But I’m contented just to see

Their happy faces filled with glee

They chase each other round the park

It’s summer, they will play till dark !

Then when the games have tired all

And early stars signal nightfall

One recollects it’s time to say

Sleep tight, it’s been a precious day !


HAPPY DAYS ( 2014 ) 2014/08/07

My memories of childhood sing

They have that old familiar ring

Just kids trying to kick-the-can

Come see how fast that they all ran !

Or five-ten-ring-a-levio

Show me how far that you will go

Hear now red-rover, red-rover

Calling let Annie come-over !

But best of all, hop-scotch for two

That’s followed by the game Statue

Oh for those past and happy days

When life was sweet and children played !


THE PATH TO TAKE ( 2014 ) 2014/07/24

We thank you Lord for grace and care

And all the blessings that we share

Through times of good and times of bad

Those times we gave it all we had !

Some lifetimes have a slow restart

For many hide a timid heart

Beyond our skills the fear still lurks

One foot before the other works !

The steady pace of trying hard

Should help to keep us on our guard

The path ahead cannot be sure

Pray it will make our way secure !


SUPPOSE ( 2014 ) 2014/02/18

The morning’s come, I raise my head

So slowly from my comfy bed

I sense the ever constant sound

Of natures rising all around.

Sometimes I think I’d like to stay

Upon my cot one cozy day

And simply close my eyes once more

Ignore the world and lock the door.

Now this could be a grand surprise

And yet I know that I must rise

Old habits cannot be denied

Supposed perhaps, but never tried !


KEEP DREAMING ( 2013 ) 2013/11/20

On wings of hope our dreams take flight

To carry us through troubled night

Up to the clouds above our heads

While we sleep tight upon our beds.

For dreams can be the sweetest things

As we escape on quilted wings,

Then wish no more my precious child

That days will be both kind and mild.

Our God shall greet us as we fly

Into His arms with lullaby

And sing a song there while we sleep

To cradle all the fears we keep

And waken with the mornings light

To other fortunes beaming bright !


KEEP SAFE ( 2013 ) 2013/10/26

Is there some place that we may hide

With God to keep us calm inside

Free from the fear of aging pace

Another trial or pain to face,

Or distant battle to be fought

Within this web in which we’re caught ?

We’d like to think there is an end

In which both fear and hope will mend

To keep us whole and safe from harm

There in the crook of God’s vast arm !
