FORGOTTEN DREAMS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/06

I  see the clouds  caught in the trees

They  all seem frozen  in the breeze

Oh  how I wish  that I could try

To  touch  their fluff while  passing by

But  heaven is  so far  away

Is  it a space  where angels play ?

I  guess that  I will never know

If  it’s a place  I’d like  to go

There  is so much  right here to see

It  might  just  take eternity

Appears  I have more time,  it seems

To  gather up  forgotten dreams !

 

LIFE’S SYMPHONY (2019) 2019/03/01

I hear the music in my head

With words not always quite as clear

Since I arise from my small bed

All full of love and void of fear.

The world around us is a joy

Its grandeur overwhelms me so

Like all the comforts we employ

With all the treasure God may show.

The length of time and how we knew

However long, His mystery

No matter now what e’er we do

None may escape life’s symphony !

 

 

RUN OUT OF TIME ( 2018 ) 2018/04/04

Life’s had its ups and had its downs

It’s had its smiles amidst the frowns

Each moment comes, each moment goes

Some days it’s calm, some days it blows.

There is no way that I can tell

If this is heaven or it’s hell

I wish I knew how to define

When I, at last, run out of time !

 

 

EARTHBOUND ( 2017 ) 2017/04/26

Sometimes the pain’s too much to bear

Sometimes defense is meant to share,

I’ve often wished that I could fly

On cushioned wings into the sky

Escaping earth and its confines

Midst all the angst that life defines

I understand as one earthbound

What I search for is not aground !

 

 

END OUR RUN ( 2017 ) 2017/02/20

And so our days just roll on by

Some with a tear, some with a sigh

Now there are times when it’s worthwhile

That all of us employ a smile

And so we move from day to day

Accepting life as come what may

Though hoping truly that our dreams

Are not as distant as it seems.

These dreams are made of fluff and stuff

Perhaps we cannot get enough

But time will know when we are done

Twixt tears or cheers, to end our run !

 

 

 

 

PIECES ( 2016 ) 2016/10/18

It seems the hours just tick on by

While all my days have learned to fly

There is no time for this to last

As days and months have rapid passed

And what began so long ago

Is now approaching its last show.

Wish I knew how the story ends

But I don’t have those kind of friends

I guess I’ll have to wait a bit

To see how all the pieces fit !

 

 

 

LIVES DO FLY ( 2016 ) 2016/09/24

The city lights grow dimmer now

They’re hidden by the fog somehow

The mist moves softly through the trees

And cloaks the rustle of the leaves.

I hear a moan that comes and goes

I feel a chill rush to my toes

Too soon the winter will be here

With vestiges of vision drear.

If all the frost and snow arrive

How shall we then keep warmth alive,

We’ll bundle up in winter’s best

Hats, gloves and scarves with padded vest.

Do not lose heart no matter what

We’ll give it all that we have got

The seasons seem to march on by

The years grow wings and lives do fly !

 

 

SUMMER DAYS ( 2016 ) 2016/09/02

Let’s say goodbye to summer’s days

With all her happy carefree ways

It’s sunny nature, flimsy clothes

A boater’s call of “thar she blows”,

A picnic lunch upon the beach

And no place left the sand can’t reach !

Well times do show and pass away

As we wake to another day

And realise that summer’s gone

While fall’s been left to carry on

But wait, there must be more to see

For time does reach eternity !

 

NO MORE TIME ( 2016 ) 2016/08/04

There are those days I can’t explain

Why sunshine makes me  feel like rain

Or why a rainbow in the sky

Compels one to begin to cry

There’s so much good I’d like to share

If only there were some to care.

But I’m afraid those folks I knew

Have disappeared, all but a few

And fate has stolen every friend

Too long before their life should end

It seems there’s great conspiracy

To hasten world propriety.

We’re relics of another time

Another place, another clime

There’s no space left for us to fit

We’ll have to make the best of it

While stating this we must resign

It’s over now we’ve no more time !

 

TIME CHANGES ( 2016 ) 2016/06/06

The morning dawns as daylight breaks

The world’s alive, the new day wakes

As time rotates around the sun

Some days begin when some are done.

I’ll never get the hang of it

I try to make the pieces fit,

How rapidly this life can change

I find the transformation strange.

What is today soon goes away

To leave just one more yesterday,

Tomorrow waits for dark to come

Ere we bid her joyous welcome !

 

NOWHERE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/04

I live with pain that never ends

At length, we have become old friends

I’ve learned to thrive in spite of it

At times it takes a bit of grit !

I’ve dreamt a dream wherein I win

But that’s if God will count me in

I need His help and love and care

Without that, I will get nowhere !

 

THE ROCKING CHAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/05/10

There’s an old rocking chair I do recall

Remembrance of days when I was so small

While my nana cuddled and held me tight

If I was tired and lost or full of fright.

As we rocked away in that wornout chair

With many a ride we’d places to share

I believe each child is entitled to

A view of the world from a lap or two,

I pray each gets the opportunity

To bond with someone as special as she !

 

 

EVOLUTION ( 2016 ) 2016/03/08

Oh joyous times and happy day

To sight the gusts of wind at play

I watch them lift the calm away

While yearling trees do bend and sway.

So much in life does imitate

How passions in our lives relate

To nature’s role as surrogate

Ere stormy days with time abate !

 

DO THE BEST ( 2016 ) 2016/02/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:54 am

Days are flying like leaves in a storm

All tempest tossed so lost and forlorn

The winds of time move across the land

Like an army under God’s command.

Is anyone sure that we’re not alone

Or which role to assume on our own

How foolish it is to thump on our chest

It is but God who will do the best !

 

A LONELY CLIMB ( 2016 ) 2016/01/26

I miss my friends from long ago

The happy times we used to know

Football games and special events

Those summer weddings under tents.

All of the wars they had their cost,

Our pals that we have loved and lost

And now the enemy’s become

The dicky hearts we suffer from.

With cancer scoring second best

Our lives are never done with tests

The joys we knew when we were young

Those carefree days are gone and done

I’m sad I’ve lost so many friends

Our lifestyles soon will meet their ends

As will both you and I, in time

This has become a lonely climb !

 

 

MOMENTS WASTED ( 2016 ) 2016/01/20

The joy, sweet joy each morning brings

The sun’s awake and nature sings

I hear the sounds each raindrop shouts

While running down the gutter spouts.

The rush of water splashing by

Inspires the rainbows in the sky

Though early morn seems cold and bleak

It has a voice that needs to speak.

We are alive and truly blessed

Awaiting life at God’s behest

With so much more we’ve yet to taste

There’s not one moment left to waste !

 

CURTAIN ( 2015 ) 2015/12/09

The dearest words that we can say

Are “thank you Lord” for each new day

Tomorrow has some time to wait

Its thanks may come a day too late.

The time is now not hours hence

It only makes good common sense

The days may rise and after pass

Till we have breathed our very last

There is that moment each must know

We’ve reached the end of life’s last show !

 

BEDTIME ( 2015 ) 2015/08/23

There is a place that I recall

Where visions wake when twilights fall

It isn’t very far from here

In fact, in time it’s very near.

I like to visit now and then

Because I need remember when

The price is right, an hour of sleep

To transpose dreams my heart will keep

While I return to yesterday

Before our love wasted away.

 

OUR END ( 2015 ) 2015/04/09

The morn arrives both bright and new

With fragile hope soon overdue

The day awakes midst tender light

Seems we’ve just bid the world goodnight.

How fleet the time does pass us by

As youth to age will quickly fly

We barely touch what might been

Then wander off into the wind !

 

STOP THE CLOCKS ( 2015 ) 2015/03/29

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 10:11 am

I wish that I could stop the clocks

Or pause their bold tick-tock, tick-tocks

They tick away the hours we’ve got

And hasten what will be our lot.

That minute comes without delay

When we must face our exit day

Be strong because twill meet us all

Who knows if it be spring or fall.

Arrive it does be sure of that

Don’t pack a bag, you need no hat

There’s no rewinding anywhere

For tis the end of life’s affair !

 

YESTERDAY ( 2014 ) 2014/07/23

Do you remember times gone by

When stardust sprinkled evening sky

And silence was a welcome friend

Who visited at each day’s end ?

When words were meant to carry us

Into the twilight’s quiet hush

With thoughts of what is yet to come

To comfort all and solace some ?

This simple task, a wistful one

Recalls how quickly life is done

While all we’ve known does go astray

Soon to become our yesterday !

 

ENOUGH ( 2014 ) 2014/01/25

What shall we do this blessed day,

We’ll walk with God along the way

And tred the path to long ago

When kindly thoughts did ebb and flow.

We’ll take  a moment here and there

Remembering the love we shared

And try to keep our dreams alive

While unrelenting powers thrive.

When we have chosen every word

The angels up above have heard

And tasted both wins and defeat

Then may our hearts decline to beat !

 

THE IMPOSTER ( 2013 ) 2013/11/23

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:18 pm
Tags: , ,

It will be,  Lord what it will be

An homage to our victory

For words we’ve said and deeds we’ve done

There in dark night and light of sun.

Man is not one of patient soul

He searches for his selfish goal

And lusting for uneven chance

He will indulge the devils dance.

He’ll shift and lie and pounce and weave

Before he scurries off to leave

He has no weight and is not true

There is no faith in what he’ll do !

Hence we must wait until he’s spent

To ponder where our freedoms went

It will take time to garner strength

To help retrieve our lives at length

But we shall win have no small doubt

God is our Hero most devout !

 

COUNT TIME ( 2013 ) 2013/10/22

There are times when hours seem to fly

And those when minutes just crawl by

Hours, minutes, seconds building days

To give us time to mend our ways.

 

TAKE TIME ( 2013 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:27 pm
Tags: , ,

Just one simple act in the course of each day

To keep hope alive and chase sadness away

A moment to pause and spend time with old friends

Sharing our love for God on whom life depends.

 

 

IN GOD’S TIME ( 2013 ) 2013/09/27

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:51 pm

I never argue with my fate

I don’t complain if someone’s late

For time is such a fragile gauge,

The role it plays upon the stage

Is cumbersome to say the least

Engendering the angry beast

Who rages out against the ways

That bind us up and steal our days.

But time appears to seek no end

It knows no hero nor a friend

And ticks away along our path

Through times of peace and times of wrath.

‘Tis foolish thinking that we can

Alter our lives to fit the plan

This cannot be for all our days

Would better be we mend our ways,

Accept that God’s role is sublime

As He’s the Author of all time.

 

TIME OUT ( 2013 ) 2013/06/28

I think it’s time to put our dreams away

Lest we should lose that touch of day to day

That fills the void of each and ev’ry hour

With common sense that energizes power.

 

NECESSITY ( 1975 ) 2013/05/31

There’s a time in life that needs a resting space,

There’s a space in time that needs a quiet place,

There’s a dream in life that withstands blinding test,

There’s a time in dreams that requires peaceful rest.
