This world is crashing all around

Please tell us if you hear the sound

The thunder roars above our head

We cannot hear what e’er’s been said

There still is time left to escape

We need locate our hero’s cape.

Oh Lord we seek some help down here

The path ahead looms dark and drear

Please send us aid on winged feet

So we may triumph  o’er defeat !

Sometimes our dreams are merely that

They break our hearts or just fall flat

There’s little choice that each may make

It’s win or lose or chance we take !

Now I have dreamt a million dreams

And some of them came true

I guess I’m lucky, so it seems

I like to share with you !

For all those times luck has not smiled

Nor been so very kind

When fate did scheme to drive us wild

With joy harder to find,

We still held on with all our might

Small matter what was done

But win we have after the fight

To save our freedom come !

Not long ago I ventured out

To learn what life was all about

I took a turn and soon got lost

My error bore too great a cost !

Since then I’ve kept myself aware

Word of the day to all, beware

Your silence is much keener heard

With kindness shown and gentle word

So be alert remember this

All love is captive to a kiss !

There is this whisper that I hear

Sometimes it rumbles in my ear

And slowly as I rise from sleep

Into my mind the words do creep

I’ve learned to listen to that voice

And o’er the years I’ve made my choice.

Each morn becomes another day

A fresh beginning in its way

How wonderful our God has been

To gift us with this chance to win !

If I could fly on fairy wings

Or sing the songs an angel sings,

If I could launch into the sky

Or float on clouds as they pass by,

If I could reach to touch a star

Or snatch its glitter from afar,

Then I could speak into the crowd

To tell them all God has avowed

He will not fail us, not at all

He is with us win, lose or fall !





LIFE’S GAME ( 2015 ) 2015/11/03

If life were like a baseball game

If sportsmanship brought most great fame

And bases were our only aim

We’d garner love and glory claim.

But life is more intense, devout

It’s faith and truth God is about

We hear the words His umpires shout

You reach the end and learn “you’re out”.

So be it when the inning’s o’er

If that is all that we can score

Before time closes its last door

We could have reached for so much more !
