My heart thanks God for each new day

My mind seeks out a nobler way

I’ve tried to find some answers here

A firmer faith, a path that’s clear

While time grows wings and seems to fly

The hours add up and multiply

Before we know it, we are done

And all accept the setting sun !

Who hears the sound of running feet

Our world reverberates defeat

While strangers view the failing trend

When will this anger ever end ?

How tired have we all become

With vision clear to only some ?

My passion washes down the drain

Promising no, not e’er again

The silence closes in once more

Too soon our Lord may bar the door !

I’m walking alone on this long, long road

My soul is laden with a heavy load

The pace is labored but my aim intent

There are no excuses left to invent.

I have had a dream of these ups and downs

Some full of smiles and a few with deep frowns

It’s wisdom we need when courage abates

To give life a chance before it’s too late !

Seems that our lives are changing day by day

While fleeting years keep getting in the way

They appear to have a mission or two

Since we are pressed for time, what shall we do ?

As the days get shorter and time speeds by

Too much to remember, harder to try

All of our efforts will keep us awake

Along with those chances we often take.

There’s a point in time when we’ll have to halt

Please understand this, it won’t be our fault !

What kind of day will it be today

I can hear the world at work and play

As noise of construction fills the air

Sirens are blaring fron who knows where.

The buses are rushing, hear the sound

While busy jitneys circle around

I hear the echo of running feet

Clattering rapidly down the street.

Well I guess the day has had its start

And the early rush will soon depart

How I pray each day as I awake

There’s some small improvement I can make !

I hear the noise of traffic from below

The buses, cars, trucks halt and stop and go

Local sirens screaming while flying past

Sounds of early rush that could shatter glass

Seems to me that if I  could have my way

I’d make the morn a later time of day !

The walls are sterile, antiseptic clean

The floors are silent mopped by hands unseen

The night is long and chill and strangely stark

As tip toe feet cross these halls in the dark.

There is one thought that quickly flashes by

This is a place where few prepare to die

The air is still, but hear the humming sound

As thousands of machines do all surround.

Here nurses try to understand slurred speech

Dealing kindly with parts of pain’s release

Pray time does rapid heal without delay

As some won’t live to see another day !
