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 !

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 !

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 !

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

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 !
