SWEETNESS ( 2019 ) 2019/12/20

Oh how I wish  that I could fly

Above the dark  clouds in the sky

Into that  place where dreams are made

And raindrops  taste like  lemonade,

Where children  laugh and play and shout

And  no one has to do  without,

Where  God above has room to share

With  anyone who visits there !

 

 

 

TIME TO SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/07

Oh, how  I pray that I  can  hide

These  tears  I shed  on the inside

For  all  God’s  children  that I see

Who  dwell in  abject  poverty.

They  never  really had a  chance

For  all their dreams  to be  enhanced

Or  find a  safer path to  take

That  guarantees  a better  break.

Our  Lord  is just  and answers  prayer

He  comprehends we all  must share

It’s  left to  us  to learn  and  teach

The  world we love  to  kindness  reach !

 

 

 

 

 

HERE’S MY HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/07/31

Feelings of old pull at my heart

As I’m praying my life must start

Too long have I been pausing here

While waiting for love to appear

By now I am expecting nought

For in the process dreams get caught.

I’ve wished so hard to find the way

To take a chance and longer stay

Well here’s my heart, please help it heal

Teach me God’s love and how to feel !

 

ALL ETERNITY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/25

So often that I’ve wished to be

The star upon your Christmas tree

A candle on your birthday cake

And privy to each wish you make.

I prayed quite hard that you and I

Would be together by and by

And now my world is part of yours

You’re my umbrella when it pours.

There is  a  God who watches o’er

His children that He does adore

I’m positive He loves us all

And picks us up ere we should fall

I’m sure He knew that we might be

In  love for  all  eternity !

 

 

 

 

SATAN’S MOB ( 2019 ) 2019/04/30

There is this silence that I hear

It rests so peaceful on my ear

My heart is quiet, all’s at rest

I find this part of day the best

The streets’ deserted, all is calm

Please welcome in the morning’s charm.

Another day, another chance

To perhaps take a second glance

Discover what the world needs now

Let’s do some good, some way, somehow

For if we don’t, who’ll fill the job

Some volunteer from Satan’s mob ?

 

 

 

 

 

I LOVE TO DANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/02/10

When I was young and oh so fleet

I loved to dance on magic feet

We’d do the rhumba, cha cha too

The fox trot, waltz or boogaloo.

Today the kids don’t dance at all

Most times they lean against the wall

Or couple up out on the floor

And seem to sway, but nothing more.

Once dancing used to be an art

With rhythm coming from the heart

I sure do wish we could return

To yesteryear with kudoes earned !

 

 

 

SHARE YOUR GIFT ( 2019 ) 2019/01/25

Be still my heart,  I hear your beat

Sounds like a drummer on the street

What message is it being sent

That seeks a refuge in God’s tent ?

Oh blessed Lord, please help me find

Peace in this world that acts unkind

And teach me how to share this gift

With others who could use a lift !

Oh Lamb of God, what shall I do

With open heart,  I come to You

The hour is late, the night is old

My pains increase as time grows cold.

I long for sleep, the morning nears

I need Your help to stem my tears

And wonder if my faith will last

Despite this spate of winter’s blast ?

I beg You God to bide with me

Through thick and thin, eternally

I pledge my word for those who care

That with Your love we learn to share !

Oh how I wish that I could be

Those candy canes upon each tree

All shiny and so red and white

Delicious tasting, bite by bite.

While peppermint is full of zest

Let’s put each flavor to the test

I’m sure that chocolate is great

For other celebration dates.

Since Christmas comes but once a year

A time of joy, a time of cheer

I’d like to think that you and I

Will share these pleasures by and by !

 

 

SEARCH FOR LOVE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/15

We’ll smile a smile or sing a song

Join a chorus or laugh along

Please take a chance, what can you lose

How does one know the path to choose ?

The little child that each once was

Teenagers that will challenge cause,

The old, infirm or oddly gruff

Like those who’ve known a road more rough

These are what life is composed of

They dream of peace and search for love !

 

 

ALWAYS ROOM ( 2018 ) 2018/05/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:58 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is one thing I’ve learned before

There’s always room for just one more

It doesn’t matter where you’re from

Or of the distance you have come.

It’s of no consequence at all

If you are skinny, fat or tall

It matters not how old you are

Or if you are a rising star.

How wonderful that it would be

For all to share equality

Remembering that adage old

There’s always room for one more soul !

 

MAKE OR BREAK ( 2018 ) 2018/04/23

A tender thought, a gentle kiss

Remembrance of the moment’s bliss

A kindly word, instant treasure

Memories of constant pleasure

These are results of many dreams

That culminate in joyous scenes.

Our world writhes in much angst and pain

It begs such effort to contain

We need more care to educate

And simple souls to formulate

A pattern of life’s give and take

As we weave through its make or break !

 

REMEMBERING ( 2018 ) 2018/02/02

The beauty of this world so much beyond compare

The joy of God’s magnificence we’re meant to share,

The pleasure to be seen by all of those who care

Remembering His love it always will be there !

 

GREATER GOALS ( 2017 ) 2017/12/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:41 am

It takes a lot to be prepared

For tragedies our lives may share

As life at best is difficult

Depending on each small result.

Sometimes the luck is on our side

And we complete each task with pride

Though there are days of no avail

When good intents are bound to fail

Let’s hope  the latter are less few

We’ve greater goals left to pursue !

 

 

I LOVE HAPPY ENDINGS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:39 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I do love happy endings, yes I truly do

That is when our dreams really could be coming true

It is the time for joy and happiness replete

The stars begin to shine and all the world seems sweet

I like to work with others, help them feel the same

Try to be realistic, manipulate no game.

Sometimes we cannot help if dreams do go astray

We simply need to pause to cast our fears away

For God will still be there,  He knows how much we care

He feels our deepest pain when no one’s left to share

He helps us to remember what life’s all about

Seeking our happy ending ere time should run out !

 

 

WE’VE NO REGRET ( 2017 ) 2017/11/03

Why do we dream, what’s that about

And why is life so full of doubt,

I cannot question, God exists

My trust in Him ever persists  !

This world is all there is  to share

In time with love and hope and care

Though lives of men have limits set

We promise Lord we’ve no regret !

 

DOOMED TO FALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:44 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I hear the noise and feel your pain

It’s like we are at war again

We need your help, please if you can

From every woman and each man.

Reach out, reach out to help us start

To teach our children to impart

True common sense and caring ways

Into the sharing of their days.

Let all begin to try their best

To breach the wall, to pass the test

Give God the chance to teach us all

For without Him, we’re doomed to fall !

 

OUTSTRETCHED HAND ( 2017 ) 2017/10/01

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:12 am

Love doesn’t die much like life,  it just fades away

And withers in the darkness with each passing day

Many dreams lie wasted remembering the past

There within shadows that were never meant to last

And the world continues as if there were no end

Many will survive without lover or dear friend

God is always listening, try to understand

He is there waiting with a steady outstretched hand !

 

 

 

 

FRIENDSHIP ( 2017 ) 2017/09/21

I wish, I wish that I could be

The candles on your birthday cake

The star upon your Christmas tree

Or mushrooms on your juicy steak.

I’d like to be your one true friend

A buddy who will understand

Or lifetime pal until the end

I would be there to help you stand.

Now friendship is a special treat

A precious gift that we may share

It softens many blows we meet

And gives us cause to smile and care !

 

 

 

ITS OWN CONTENT ( 2017 ) 2017/09/01

A little cheer, a soft hooray

Let’s all enjoy another day

Be grateful for the sun and air

And all those joys that we may share .

The Lord does bless all of our deeds

And keeps fulfilling present needs

Wherein we fall asleep each night

Sweet dreams of angels speed our flight.

They shadow us where e’er we’re sent

The morrow brings its own content !

 

 

SHARE SUN AND MOON ( 2017 ) 2017/02/03

I have traveled over mountains where the missionaries trod

As they brought to all the natives many messages from God

I have crossed the mighty rivers where they struggled for their lives

To ford the very waters in which the power of God survives

I have listened to the wind as it has played its mournful tune

And I thank the distant stars that we each share the sun and moon !

 

 

 

PLEASURES ( 2016 ) 2016/12/28

I’d often thought how great ‘twould be

If all God’s children could feel free

And how improved our lives would seem

With each endowed  to chase their dream

Another chance to reach the goal

Which is the anchor of one’s soul

While God to us His treasures bare

In hopes that all may pleasures share !

We know the holidays are here

The streets are full of joy and cheer

There is a feeling all about

One cannot wait to laugh and shout.

Our hopes are running high today

Do not let fear get in the way

Keep up your spirits, don’t be sad

Fill the stockings try to be glad.

It’s Christmastime, let’s celebrate

Just get on board and don’t be late

We’ve got a lot of dreams to share

Open your hearts it’s time to care !

The years just seem to whiz on by

The days are short, the nighttimes fly

Hang on, hang on, don’t get upset

There’s no time left to do regret !

So hoist your sails and carry on

Oh captain, we depend upon

A little kindness here and there

Pickup your spirits, learn to share.

Show God that you will never shirk

Please let Him know that you can work

There’s so much more that needs be done

Let’s spread the word, enjoy the fun !

 

RELEASE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/26

There are those days when I recall

The summers, winter, spring and fall

Of years now past and gone astray

Like thoughts and things I’ve stored away.

Let caution be the path I choose

I may not win but fear to lose

But share will I the pleasures found

And cherish all treasures unbound.

May God grant all eternal peace

To  find at last our souls release !

 

 

 

 

DEPARTMENT STORE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/08

Our world is full of so much stuff

You’d think by now we’d have enough

Where does it come from, do you know

We sure have reaped more than we sow.

There’s boxes filled up to the brim

With bits and pieces, lots of trim

Plus all of that and so much more

That threatens to burst through the door.

I’d like to think that as I age

There’s room for more upon the stage

Like hope and dreams and love galore

For all in God’s department store !

In God’s new world of kingdom come

There’s room for all and not just some

The space is wide and welcoming

It does not matter what you bring

If you can’t walk or run or trot

He’ll welcome you and question  not.

Just bring with you an open heart

That’s yearning for a brand new start

A mind that’s willing to agree

He knows what’s right for you and me

And eager hands anxious to care

Because His world is ours to share !

 

YOU AND I ( 2016 ) 2016/04/28

I wish I knew that you and I

Would never have to say goodbye

And that our friendship would live on

Until the day we both are gone.

How foolish since that cannot be

For we both share mortality

And so old friend we must prepare

When you and I no longer share !
