I wish I were a  child  again

If  only to  remember when

We both were young, so long ago

And life was our own picture show.

We laughed and loved, it was such fun

For us  our world had just begun

Each moment  held a new surprise

It warmed our hearts and teared our eyes.

I’m  sorry  that it didn’t  last

But left  behind  its storied past

To still  tug on these old heartstrings

With sadness  that  forever clings !

That sometimes love may waste away

When it can find no place to stay

To learn at last life’s saddest part

Trying to piece a broken heart !

It’s been awhile since you’ve been gone

I find it hard to carry on

My days are long, the hours unwind

To seek the peace I cannot find.

A part of me has lost its way

The rest seems to have gone astray

I heard those last words that you said

They are imbedded in my head

O’er every word, I’ve cried and cried

My son, for you, I would have died !

 

 

 

WITH DEEP REGRET ( 2018 ) 2018/10/30

If there were something I could give

That helped you heal and made you live

I’m sure you know I would have tried

With all my power from deep inside.

For I am far too old you see

And have half filled my destiny

Your turn was next, without a doubt

Why did I fail and had no clout ?

I am sorry, you had to lose

No other exit one could choose

I’m trying hard, I can’t forget

Now left in tears with deep regret !

 

 

YOU WILL NOT DROWN ( 2018 ) 2018/10/29

This morning as I took a peek

Outside my window pane to seek

A better view of God and sky

Wild wonderment was passing by !

He could not know the peace I found,

I watched him forage all around

As in and out he made his way

So quiet, not a leaf did sway.

It was a message shown to me

By Mourning Dove in neighbor’s tree

E’en though life’s storm comes pelting down

Just trust your wings, you will not drown !

One page of life too soon will close

Beyond our fingers and our toes

‘Twill pass again this way no more

Without a tally or a score.

We must accept the burning fact

That there will be no turning back

Despite the depth or max of pain

We shall not pass this way again.

The time has come  to file away

Those memories of yesterday

Let’s place them in our private space

That God and time will ne’er erase !

 

 

SEE ME THROUGH ( 2018 ) 2018/08/15

I’ve seen the world about me cry

And heard its whispers of goodbye

I’ve felt the tremor of its fears

All through these recent lonely years

I’ve known the truth and heard its lies

And seen them revel in disguise.

I’ve prayed for help in my distress

And been denied proper redress

I’ve hoped that opportunity

Would visit soon and set me free

But most of all I’ve asked of You

Dear Lord above, please see me through !
