My tears all tumble down I cannot halt their flow

I’ve tried so very hard they’ve nowhere else to go

I weep for the lost, the forgotten, broken, bruised

Those children who have been discarded or abused

Teardrops like summer rain keep getting in the way

How I wish I could find one tearless sunny day.

I see that times are hard for those upon the road

Though even in that past when God had shared the load

I’m sure He is still there along that rugged trail

All we can do is pray His efforts will not fail !

Now I have seen the mighty mountain and heard the restless sea

There is no greater image that my old heart may bring to me

For I am not a stranger adrift upon some foreign shore

But a native born who sees trouble that’s coming soon and more.

I pray that we acknowledge that our future holds great danger

We forgot how times are changed ere we welcomed in the stranger

And so it is that now we are prepared as we must need be

To keep our homeland safe and from all its enemies be free !

 

 

ONE MOTHER ( 2016 ) 2016/11/15

I think that I would rather be

An angel on the Christmas tree

All sparkling in its angel dust

Shining so bright as stardust must,

Or eagle from her aerie nest

Judging behavior of the best

Perhaps a swan upon the lake

Whose paddling does not water break

While even hens upon a clutch

Will warn you loudly, do not touch

I’m just a mother trying hard

To teach her children follow God !

 

MORASS ( 2016 ) 2016/11/02

One simple thought occurs to me

That nothing in our lives is free

We pay the price there is no choice

The time is here to raise our voice.

Sound the alarm, call in the guard

It’s sure correct to fence the yard

Prepare ourselves for the onslaught

In this morass we can’t be caught !

There is a chill it’s in the air

From tingling toes to face and hair

And warns that winter’s on the way

But doesn’t say how long she’ll stay.

Oh please old crones that rule the wind

Be kind to those who are thin-skinned

Take care they’re safe from all the cold

Though winter’s force be ever bold !

Oh Humpty-Dumpty what have we here

A world of treachery full of fear

Where are the king’s horses and his men

You know we could use their help again !

To all of us it’s become quite clear

We’ve unsafe streets, the future looks drear

We need your advice if you don’t mind

There’s a solution we must now find

Make sure we promise to not crack eggs

And pray we stand on our own two legs !

 

STORMY SEA ( 2016 ) 2016/09/03

We are asea, so far afloat

Without the aid of oar and boat

Awash upon the stormy sea

Lost victims of life’s mutiny.

Reach out, reach out to touch God’s hand

To take us to the promised land

Our arms outstretched to touch the shore

Find peace restored forevermore !
