LIFE IS SHORT RANGE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/01

The end draws near and seems so strange

That life of man lasts but short range

While trees exist for centuries

Attested by the rings one sees.

In man there is this pressing need

For lives to fail or to succeed

As each is counted one by one

But who shall know when counting’s done ?

 

I WISH THAT I COULD BE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/27

Oh Lord, oh Lord, I wish that I could be

A little star upon the Christmas tree

That would glow brightly there night after night

From dusk till early morning light.

I’d like to be a crystal ball that spins

And for each time it stops somebody wins

Or if not that a sturdy knight of old

Who rescues damsels in his suit of gold.

I’d rather be a dreamer on a cloud

Than melt away into a busy crowd

But most of all I wish that I might be

Included in God’s blest community !

There are these days that come and go

When pain is all I ever know

It seems I can’t remember how

It used to be before right now.

I simply get too tired to think

And ofttimes tremble on the brink

But I recall that God is there

And hears our every single prayer.

I only hope my timing’s right

Perhaps this will be my tonight

Oh Lord above, look down on me

And share a bit of sympathy !

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 !

 

I HAVE NO FEAR ( 2018 ) 2018/11/03

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 !
