My morning thoughts are crystal clear

They help discern why I am here

How shall I know the path to take

To live  my life void of mistake !

 

TO THE LAMB (2019) 2019/02/19

Oh little lamb you are to me

A symbol of God’s charity

Your wooly hair and all your curls

Reminds me of our knits and purls

In early spring you sacrificed

So we’d have garments warm and nice.

A pair of soft and wooly socks

Or sweater set that really rocks

Paired with wool tights tucked in the boots

While shearling-gloved hands pulled up roots

You’ve mown the lawn there as you eat

And trampled turds with your hoofed feet

You’ve closer gathered when it’s cold

And seem to live to be quite old !

Summer days are drifted away

‘Tis time for fall to have its say

Before the winter storms each door

And new year springs one last encore,

It’s the wee small hours frighten me

When I must face what is to be

I accept there is no recourse

And from this world await divorce !

 

 

THE WAIT ( 2018 ) 2018/02/19

Well here I am alone at last

Safe from the winter’s stormy blast

A child of God too soon grown old

Who took the path not paved of gold

And followed Him along His ways

Until the ending of all days

And now I wait to learn the score

Has it been worth the waiting for ?

 

TRUE CREED ( 2017 ) 2017/06/11

I’m told  that justice is quite blind

In all the truths that man does find

She is the judge who may deceive

But yet the one most will believe !

How sad that she must blinded be

Throughout the world’s vast infamy

Unfaithful to her name indeed

And traitor to her precious creed !

 

GOD’S EXIT DOOR ( 2017 ) 2017/01/11

We have been friends so many years

We’ve shared the range of joy and fears

We laughed a lot, we also cried

As family and pals have died.

We toughened up and made a choice

We chose to heed the calmer voice

For this scant time we each have left

Perchance to guard against its theft

As all that we’ve been wishing for

May help us reach God’s exit door !

 

NO MORE TIME ( 2016 ) 2016/08/04

There are those days I can’t explain

Why sunshine makes me  feel like rain

Or why a rainbow in the sky

Compels one to begin to cry

There’s so much good I’d like to share

If only there were some to care.

But I’m afraid those folks I knew

Have disappeared, all but a few

And fate has stolen every friend

Too long before their life should end

It seems there’s great conspiracy

To hasten world propriety.

We’re relics of another time

Another place, another clime

There’s no space left for us to fit

We’ll have to make the best of it

While stating this we must resign

It’s over now we’ve no more time !
