I ask You, Lord, to comfort me

While this old world is still not free

Give each a turn to stand up tall

Before the times wherein we fall.

Show us the mercy that You gave

To all the Saints that You have saved

And grant us peace ere we must die

Without a fragile last goodbye !

There is this battle that I fight

From early morn straight through the night

It is a war I cannot win

Sometimes I think I should give in

But that is not left up to me

And leaves no option I can see.

As much as I may choose to stay

Such choices do not pass my way

My God supreme does have control

O’er conscience, body, heart and soul

And He alone does make the choice

To stop my heart or still my voice !

At times life hangs upon a thread

Or teeters on a word unsaid

Tense moments caught before a scene

Or shouted words just too obscene,

Who knows what happens in a flash

Or what may cause a fatal crash ?

Tis smart to always take great care

Be conscious of what, when or where

For life comes with no guarantee

Take time to think, wait, watch and see !

The world’s no longer black and white

Its color code is sheer delight

Ranging from dark to brightest light

With every tint from day to night !

There may be some eight billion souls

Whose values differ from their goals

While many playing other roles

Find life demanding greater tolls !


KNOW-IT-ALL ( 2016 ) 2016/02/15

There is one fact that I observe

In friendships that we would preserve

If you speak somewhat softer now

T’would seem a better job somehow.

There’s no such thing as always right

There is but proper and polite

Try please to keep an open mind

For greater knowledge you may find,

There are some limits to recall

As none should be a know-it-all !

I pray that I have left my doubts behind

Embracing all, accepting what I find

As life does rise and surge and constant wind

Throughout the channels of each fragile mind.


PARENTHOOD ( 2014 ) 2014/09/14

A tiny child arrived today

He is too young to learn to play

We’ll have to wait a little while

Ere we discern his darling smile.

Sweet baby born so innocent

May fill our lives with true content

When sleepless nights that fade away

Bring greater joy from day to day !

Our love will grow and glow and flow

Into the future parents know

As God sees us in manner like

He is the Parent to each tyke !


TIME’S LAST RACE ( 2014 ) 2014/06/29

Can’t find the words to speak of things

Like cats and dogs or queens and kings

Toy sailboats on a bathtub sea,

Or old old friends like you and me.

The words get lost along the way

And syllables have gone astray

As hopes and dreams that we’ve forgot

Are memories that linger not.

The slow process of growing old

When hands and feet and hearts turn cold

Are but the facts we need embrace

Before life’s end and time’s last race !

I know dear Lord, You walk with me

Into the wind or by the sea

Along the path that winds around

The village square, the heart of town.

While children play and students learn

The flowers bloom and seasons turn

As summer’s heat begins to rise

The night displays clear sparkling skies !

Oh what a sight our hearts have seen

With good and bad laced in-between

A glowing hope that God forgives

Our weakness where tradition lives !
