EXCHANGE GOODBYES ( 2020 ) 2020/06/26

Time  is  passing,  tick  tock,  tick  tock,

The  hands  keep  moving  on  the  clock

Minutes  are  speeding  one  by  one

From  early  dawn  till setting  sun.

How fast  our  lives  do  melt  away

While  none  have  found  a  way  to  stay

Help  us,  oh  Lord,   to  seek  a  trail

Where  excess  time  may  be  for  sale.

Let’s  close  our  eyes and  hope  and  pray

That  tomorrow  could  be  the  day

We’ll  ring  a  bell  and  yell  ” surprise ”

And  never  more  exchange  goodbyes  !

 

 

 

MOMENTS LOST ( 2019 ) 2019/10/26

The  pages of my  calendar

All now seem to be  flashing by

They  are racing one  another

I  find I’m helpless  as they  fly.

I never thought that I would see

A time that  would  evaporate

This  world with such  rapidity

Without a  chance to  concentrate.

And so  it is  the days  have passed

Without  one moment  to be  lost

Like  pictures  in a  looking  glass

With  no one there to count the cost !

 

 

TOO SOON GONE ( 2019 ) 2019/08/13

The open window invites the breeze

To sashay in from beneath the trees

Take a dance around a room or two

Sharing fresh air between me and you.

Enjoy the night times secret pleasure

Amidst the joys we all do treasure

Remember how fast the seasons fly

Before we each have to bid goodbye

As the nights grow cool before the dawn

And the years we loved are too soon gone !

 

 

IT’S OVER ( 2019 ) 2019/08/01

There are no bridges left to cross

Nor any mountains left to climb

It’s too late now to pitch and toss

Because we have run out of time.

There is no point in looking back

The curtains drawn, the page is blank

The horse got spooked and left the track

And no one’s  here we need to thank.

We have no reason now to try

I cannot ask the how and when

Believe that love just passed us by

And will not come this way again !

 

PLEASE SAVE OUR DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/05/24

I  treasure  days just like today

To savor and to store away

Full of the warmth one dreams about

No fantasies chock full of doubt.

But life is never quite so clear

We cannot know when danger’s near

Or when we shall run out of time

And find ourselves deaf, dumb or blind.

The answer is to pull up tight

Tack on a smile, begin to fight

For planning is the proper way

To save each dream, from day to day !

 

 

A SIMPLE GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

Like all the dreams you’ve ever dreamed

And all the plans you ever planned

Like the currents in the river

And all the ridges in the sand

One whisk of mighty ocean wave

That does quite often go astray

Maybe a mighty blast of wind

Stalls, waiting to come out and play

Like all the fishes in the sea

And all the birds that fly up high

The simple clasping of a hand

Accepts it’s time to say goodbye !

 

FINAL ACCEPTANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/13

Time moves on more slowly now

As every minute counts somehow

We savor all as hours pass

Because we know these are the last.

There is no choice we can make

To hope to end or stop the ache

What is to be, ’twill be so

But until then tis status quo !

The pages of the calendar do fly

Like storm tossed leaves across a windy sky

Days of our lives now swiftly pass us by

Their hours, minutes all whispering goodbye !

 

THE SETTING SUN ( 2018 ) 2018/05/14

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 !

 

OCCUPATION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/29

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 !

 

WHEN COURAGE ABATES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/21

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 !

 

NOT OUR FAULT ( 2017 ) 2017/12/08

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 !

 

 

IMPROVEMENT ( 2016 ) 2016/10/20

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 !

 

 

 

 

LATER ( 2016 ) 2016/09/23

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 !

 

 

I C U ( 2016 ) 2016/03/28

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 !

 

 

FAST FRIEND ( 2015 ) 2015/04/18

The year has come and flown away

This is another sanguine day

How fleetly time does pass us by

And leaves behind the tears that dried

Like memories we can’t forget

Or dreams we’ve had that haunt us yet.

I’ve learned so much as I have grown

We all must try to stand alone

For that is how each life does end

With only God as our fast friend !

 

IT’S NOT TIME YET ( 2015 ) 2015/03/05

Fantastic visions fill my head

As I lie here upon my bed

I feel as though I’m in between

The space that lives twixt wake and dream.

My visions are so truly clear

What e’er I see seems strangely near

My heart pales, I can’t catch my breath

What is it like so close to death ?

A simple sound defiles the air

And stills the gloom, be gone despair

I’ve things to do I can’t forget

This is too soon it’s not time yet !

 

COURAGE ( 2014 ) 2014/07/26

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 10:59 am

I want to know about my dreams

And if they fit into life’s schemes,

How are they meant to pave the way

To help me breach the last relay?

The vigil bell rings loud and clear 

Declaring one sojourner here

The task is hard, perhaps too long

To reach God’s ears by evensong !

I’ve cast my lot upon the wind 

Forgive me Lord, I know I’ve sinned

There is no time to come again

My visit soon must meet its end !

 

ENDINGS ( 2014 ) 2014/05/11

This heart of mine that has known fear

Is old and tired, pock-marked and sere

And has no time for words unclear

Or foolish thoughts too insincere !

The problem if one feels inclined

To make excuse for acts unkind

When rather is, it should not be

The power of God must flower free !

Scant time is left to make amends

To heal the wounds or curry friends

In days to come we must decide

Will we partake that final ride !

 

SCHEDULE ( 2013 ) 2013/11/08

The dark angel has passed me by

One cannot guess how glad am I

I’ve been upon this path before

And grateful now he’s skipped my door.

I am not ready yet to die

There is much left that I must ply

Perhaps he’ll understand my plight

Convinced I’m not too weak to fight.

Of course he’ll try another day

And know when I can’t longer stay

But when that time arrives at last

I’ll pack my dreams and exit fast !

 

PATIENCE ( 2013 ) 2013/10/15

There’s never time to do the things you’ve always wanted to

Lifes journey seems to just run on until its turn is through.

As prayers are meant to ease the pain for most not only you

So dreams can’t be confined to nights, the days must also do.

While hope springs forth in many ways to help your wish come true

It takes awhile to grow a smile and have a laugh or two.
