Oh how I’ve wished I had a friend

Who’d bide with me until the end

Or take the time to sup with me

Share coffee, tea and company.

How sure am I God’s always there

Anxious to learn He’ll constant care

No matter what the issue is,

Because I am forever His ?

I promise that I never will

Betray His trust or doubt His skill

He is the Master I adore

The Friend that I’ve been waiting for !

Can you feel the chill that’s in the air

Do you sense its power everywhere

Will it burrow in and move about

As it spreads its wings both in and out ?

There’s a pendulum that keeps apace

Of all the matters each one must face

Sometimes the pressure becomes too great

Or an answer comes when it’s too late

Truth is I really would chose to be

Included in God’s serenity !

I’d like to take this time to say

Thanks to you who helped share my day

And all who left while others stayed

Became my friends or passed away.

I’ll miss you all and hope you know

My prayers are with you as you go

Each one of you has taught me this

That life’s comprised of tears and bliss.

What matters most, as time rolls by

That we, in hope, good sense apply

For friendship is a crucial must

A gift of love and special trust !

 

 

 

CLOSE TO MY HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/02/04

Of recent times I’ve been so ill

With lengthy days and endless nights

That brought my life and mind a chill

And filled my soul with countless frights.

Tis true I am far better now

But need to be secure and smart

I’ll have to figure out just how

To keep God’s Word close to my heart !

 

 

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 !

 

 

 

A BIT OF SYMPATHY ( 2018 ) 2018/11/26

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 !
