SAVE US NOW ( 2020 ) 2020/06/27

Our  tears  are  flowing  down  like  rain

With  cheeks pressed  hard  on  window  pane

Each  throat  is  tight  and  cannot  breathe

And  struggles  hard to  find  relief.

The  madness  now  does  seize  us  all

From  sources  which  demand  our  fall

Our  hearts  are  dying  one  by  one

When  will  this  agony  be  done  ?

This  land  of  beauty  and  great  wealth

Our  citadel   of  strength  and  health

Is  under  seige  by  evil  force

Oh  Captain,  do  reverse  this  course  !

 

HOW WONDERFUL ( 2020 ) 2020/02/15

I’m  lying here in dark of night

Anticipating  morning’s  light

A  bright new  dawn is on its  way

To  wish us all  a pleasant day.

How  wonderful our God must be

With  all His  generosity

And  greater strength with  peace of mind

A  truer friend  we’ll  never find  !

 

 

SAFE PLACE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/07

My  words are so piled up inside

I  cannot find  a place to hide

Sometimes  I think  I will explode

If  I should drop this  heavy load.

But  who am I to judgement  make

About  what will or will  not break

How’d  I manage to live  so long

Without  the lyrics of  the song ?

This  God  I love does  understand

And  led me thus far by the hand

He’s  taught me all the rules  I know

My  true Rock and Safe  Place to go !

 

 

THE ANSWER ( 2019 ) 2019/11/14

Here  in the silence  of  the night

One finds the courage and  the might

Of  all that’s  proffered in  His sight

By God  whose  judgement is the Light !

 

 

STANDING BY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/01

I  stand by God  and all He means

He fills my heart  and all my  dreams

He  is  my Hero over all

I  answer  ever to  His call

It  matters not  where I shall go

For  I am  His till  end times show !

 

TO THE CORE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/22

This is my  life with all  its faults

The love of  God my heart  exhaults,

When  I feel down and sort  of rough

It’s  faith in God  that keeps  me tough.

I’ve seen a lot  and been through war

I’ve lived the pain  right to the  core

And  wonder if the Lord  does know

How  very much  I love  Him  so ?

 

 

 

MY DREAM ( 2019 ) 2019/09/28

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:50 am

This  heart that beats  here in my chest

Sometimes  it needs to pause and rest

The  problems  that my  life conveys

Oftimes  puts  me  into  a daze .

I  wandered  lost in distant lands

As  time slipped through  my trembling hands,

My voice  it failed  and shan’t be heard

No,  not one  single  spoken word.

Perhaps with luck  I’ll pass the test

And  mayhaps time will  heal the rest

Tis  now to  demonstrate  the  love

That my heart  has been  dreaming of !

 

 

 

CLEAR SKIES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/27

The  clouds  overhead are  dark and grim

The sky  above  now  has grown dim

As  evening  shadows  gently  fall

The  night moves  in  to cover all.

What happens  when  the world’s  asleep

And images  from  corners creep

Across the  room with  purpose clear

To  know  a  night  without a fear ?

Attend  the coming morn  in shrouds

Lest dawn  arrives  bedecked in clouds

Let’s  veil the  fullness of our day

And  chase  all of our doubts  away !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AMEN. ( 2019 ) 2019/09/21

Through thick and thin we did begin

Our journey long by charging in

Our courage hasn’t failed before

We stand our ground forever more.

No cowardice to e’er be found

Wherein our qualities abound

We are a nation based on truth

Oft overcome by leaked uncouth.

It matters small we’ve manners rude

Or if our language appears crude

For we are but an arm of strength

Protecting God and friends at length !

 

NOW SING ALONG ( 2019 ) 2019/09/20

Long time  ago when I  was young

We had  great songs  that could  be sung

About  our nation and our lives

And thousands  over time  survives.

These words of courage  carry on

With  impact of the clarion

They sing of life and  love and care

Of hope and joy,  grief and despair.

Let’s lend  our  voice to all we feel

Because  our  sentiment  is real

Like all  the  verses we have heard

Repeat  to us  God’s  promised word !

Oh my dear child, what can I do

To be of aid and help to you

Please tell me what it is you need

I’ll try to follow as you lead.

Tis time for you to stand up tall

Assume your burden ere you fall

Our God is Witness, heed His word

What e’er is spoke we all have heard !

I love You Lord, You are my strength

For You I’d go to any length

No distance is too far for me

Because You’re my eternity !

 

YOUR WILL IMPART ( 2019 ) 2019/02/17

It is quite tiresome when one stops to think

The world outside waits trembling on the brink

We may all wish there was another way

To blink our tears and sadnesses away.

But how can we effect a change indeed

When most struggle with this same care or need

Oh faint of heart, who lack the push to start

Back up your strength and all your will impart !

 

GOD’S SERENITY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/16

Can you feel the chill that’s in the air

Do you sense its power everywhere

Will it burrow in and move about

As it spreads its wings both in and out ?

There’s a pendulum that keeps apace

Of all the matters each one must face

Sometimes the pressure becomes too great

Or an answer comes when it’s too late

Truth is I really would chose to be

Included in God’s serenity !

 

I HEAR THE SOUNDS ( 2018 ) 2018/10/08

I feel the fury of the wind

That keeps on squealing, ” let me in ”

I hear the angry sounds that shout

I do not know what it’s about,

But I am not some trembling vine

Who operates without a spine

I’ve been around the block too long

You’ll note that I’m not weak but strong !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

 

DO NOT FORGET TODAY   9/11/2001.

 

FADE AWAY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/25

There’s little time for childish games

As now most face true adult aims

The chances lessen day by day

For those who choose a calmer stay.

More stamina is what we need

If all God’s values we pay heed

Remember life is here to stay

It’s only we who fade away !

 

TRUE FREEDOM ( 2018 ) 2018/08/17

The eagle flies and tilts his wings

Into the wind as courage springs

The sight of which from earth below

Imprints his efforts in this show

Upon those seeking there aground

The eloquence that he has found

With visions of his grandeur high

He is the strength in God’s great sky !

 

WHAT USED TO BE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:43 am

The night was dark and cool and clear

The air around was free of fear

As I recall it used to be

When life was happy and carefree.

We laughed and cried and fussed a lot

About what’s fair and what was not

Though not one person would declare

That their own treatment was unfair !

We lived and dreamed our lives away

Believing each, from day to day

This was our homeland, small or large

Where bullies never were in charge !

Unhappiness we cannot bear

Because of sadness we all share,

Please help us Lord to lift our wings

While searching for life’s sweeter things !

 

I HOPE TO FIND ( 2018 ) 2018/04/01

The road is long, the journey’s hard

This path that winds its way to God

I am not sure if I’ve the strength

To carry on for its whole length.

But I shall try no matter what

I’ve pledged to give it all I’ve got

I love You Lord, both heart and mind

It is Your peace I hope to find !

 

 

 

OUTCOME IS A DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/03/24

Today I trudged along the road

While packing quite a bulky load

My spirit crushed by all the stress

My soul in pain, under duress.

I wish I knew what I should do

To help myself and see this through

At times I feel the battle’s lost

Since I can’t count the total cost

I’ll keep on trying to hold fast

This effort will not be my last

Since God and me are like a team

Let’s pray the outcome is a dream !

 

 

 

SEND A CLUE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/20

Lord, I won’t sing this song once more

It’s not the same as ’twas before

Our innocence has disappeared

Perhaps it’s worse than what I feared !

I do not recognize the score

And don’t know what we’re fighting for

I can’t determine what to do

We need Your help, please send a clue !

 

SPECIAL WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/03

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:51 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes the pain is so intense

I cannot aid my own defense

The only drug I wish to find

Is what’s propelling my own mind.

No complicated opioids

Nor any “cillins”  or steroids

I’m so much stronger than that crap

Who needs to fall into the trap ?

There are some words we all should say,

“Please help us Lord get through this day

Grant us the strength to overcome

The evil that this world’s become!”

 

STANDUP TALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/19

Sometimes the dream you’re waiting for

Lies just outside your own front door

Sometimes success that you pursue

Is something you already knew.

Sometimes your life becomes intense

If you’ve no taste for self defense

And when you fumble or you fall

Remember please to standup tall !

 

 

TO FOLLOW YOU ( 2017 ) 2017/07/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:40 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is so much that I need say

Before it’s time to go away

To indicate just how I feel

With passions that are strong and real.

At times I’m sure I cannot win

The odds are stacked ere I begin

Please help me Lord make dreams come true

Grant me the strength to follow you !

 

 

MANNER KIND ( 2017 ) 2017/06/12

Sometimes my dear, the world we know

Is not the one we’d like to show

Sometimes coditions are not clear

As we are caught in doubt or fear

Please help us Lord fine tune our lives

In manner kind where goodness thrives !

 

MY LIFES LENGTH ( 2017 ) 2017/06/03

Be still my heart, I hear your beat

And from my forehead to my feet

The numbness reaches to my toes

Tis strange the way  this feeling grows.

At times my heart seems in my throat

I think that I could almost float

The fear it rises, comes and goes

When will this end, nobody knows.

But God’s here standing by my side

He holds my hand, He is my ride

I know that He is still my strength

However long be my lifes length !
