I hear the bells on Christmas Day

Their old famiiar carols play

And pray the Lord will understand

That soon His birthday is at hand.

It matters not what day that is

For all our days are truly His

The steeple bells ring sweet and clear

To celebrate the Christchild’s here !

 

 

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 !

There is a knocking on the gate

Is this the Someone I await

I keep expecting Him to call

The time has flown, tis after fall !

The leaves are gone, impatient they

It seems they too have missed the day

Perhaps another took my place

It’s not such youth I shall embrace.

Oh tell me Sir, why am I here

Unlike the young, I have no fear

But You and I have much to share

Because I know You really care !

 

GOD IS THERE FOR YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/11/02

I pine for you my precious child

You weathered life both harsh and mild

When you were young you were so sweet

You truly were your mommy’s treat.

An angel child from heaven sent

Where helping others was your bent

Along the way your life it changed

Your ideas all, how far they ranged.

From deep sea diving to the ice

You did it all and made it nice

Good husband, father, brother too

Your great big world was fond of you.

You never lost your faith in God

Especially when life got hard

We’ll pray that God is there for you

And that His love will follow through !

 

 

 

NO SECRETS HERE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/01

It matters not where you are from

The lower class or high income,

The price has always been the same

A sense of honor, your good name !

Respect for elders, kindly deeds

Concern for others and their needs

The fact that truth is scoring high

Why would another tell a lie ?

If words are all that one has got

What else is there if one is not ?

Tis sad to note that common man

Has more to hide than less to plan

God knows us all and what we do

No secrets here, not me, not you!

 

YOU WILL NOT DROWN ( 2018 ) 2018/10/29

This morning as I took a peek

Outside my window pane to seek

A better view of God and sky

Wild wonderment was passing by !

He could not know the peace I found,

I watched him forage all around

As in and out he made his way

So quiet, not a leaf did sway.

It was a message shown to me

By Mourning Dove in neighbor’s tree

E’en though life’s storm comes pelting down

Just trust your wings, you will not drown !

 

 

PAST THE END ( 2018 ) 2018/10/22

Tis soon the dawn, the day begins

As time is short, nobody wins

The loser fades away discreet

Then who’s left standing on his feet  ?

All life is not peaches and cream

Fair or honest, a piper’s dream

While truth gets lost along the way

Is no one there who’ll have a say ?

Remember, only God is just

And worthy of our total trust

He is the Hero and the Friend

Who bides with each far past the end !
