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 !

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 !

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.

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 !

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 !

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 !
