There is a flag flies in the wind

Red, white and blue and golden fringed

And from my window every day

Its mighty emblem is displayed.

Sometimes its folds blow in the breeze

And wave to all the leaf-filled trees

Its symbol shouting freedom first

With such a sympathetic voice !

There is this call that I now hear

It happens every time each year

The bells peal out and my heart cries

Takes all my strength to face goodbyes !

There is no way I can convey

The sadness that I feel this day

So many wars for all those boys

Who early left their childhood toys

To wear that uniform each chose

Before their lives came to a close.

So be it blue or white or green

Brown, khaki, tan or in between

Whatever color works for you

They fought and died, red, white and blue !

THIS IN MEMORIAM  1776 – 2018

Good morning Lord, this is another day

With all new miracles spreading our way

Among the olden dreams we still expect

Like fantasies perchance that we reject

Who knows what favor God will deign to show

Let’s give it time to spread and shed and grow !

Oh Lord sometimes I find I cannot bear

This useless pain I suffer everywhere

I’ve searched so hard to find another way

To force this endless ache to fade away.

My strength is gone and my courage got lost

As I feel myself in a tempest tossed

Dear Lord, what shall I do to set me free

Help me to score this last small victory !

 

 

 

LOSE OUR GOAL ( 2017 ) 2017/04/07

We are a people born to be free

To cherish peace and sweet liberty

Since we  began in seventy-six,

As we fought and died and took our licks

More than two hundred years in the past

A long time now in this world so vast.

We’ve stuck it out and held on so tight

Through coldest days and in darkest night

We’ve fought off each villain we have met

And what this cost we shall not forget

But now the fight’s for our heart and soul

We cannot afford to lose our goal !

 

VICTORY ( 2016 ) 2016/12/16

In many dreams that I recall

I’ve seen the writings on the wall

Those simple words a judgement were

And caused the fall of Belshazzar !

Now Daniel was a man of God

Much suffered as his life was hard

But win he did as we all know

And latter days, his writings show.

So much that we have all been told

Of visions from those days of old

He brought us truth that we will see

God’s ultimate great victory !

Rise up, rise up and sieze the dawn

Another day, another morn

With one last chance to be reborn.

Pursue your dream or seek your cause

It’s yours to take to heal the flaws

Still yours to win, go, stop or pause !
