SALVATION ( 2019 ) 2019/08/05

For all  I am or pray to be

Or all that I  shall  ever see

Of life revolving around me

Please save me from  infinity !



INTO THE BREECH ( 2019 ) 2019/05/28

Now once again into the breech

To learn the lessons life must teach

A change of pace or brusque reply

To say that we shall get on by.

Tomorrow’s not too far away.

Let’s ask  the Lord we’d like to stay

And in these precious moments left

We’ll  make our peace or are bereft !


UNSELFISH CARE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/19

Our faith in God counts quite a lot

As it’s the only hope we’ve got

That bides with us both night and day

To keep us safe and fears allay.

Too soon the dark moves closer in

As each prepares to lose or win

Remember always God is there

Sharing love and unselfish care !

I’ve always known I was a child

Polite and kind, ne’er rude or wild

Perhaps that is the reason why

My passive nature gets me by.

I wish that I could gather strength

Pursue my dreams to greater length

What is it folks are fighting for

To curry favor, change decor ?

Now I have traveled very far

Across the seas, both ship and shore

My heart has weathered many storms

And travesties beyond the norm !


My curly hair that used to be

Has now begun deserting me

It is not washing down the drain

Just tired curling up again.

While fate has opened every door

To follow through or settle score

I wonder what may soon occur

And to what power I must defer ?

The hours too fast are speeding by

All clouded with both tears and sigh

Oh gracious Lord now hear my plea

My hope is to abide with Thee !










TRIUMPH O’ER DEFEAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/14

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 !


FREEDOM COME. ( 2017 ) 2017/01/13

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 !


CHANCE TO WIN ( 2016 ) 2016/08/18

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 !



WIN, LOSE OR FALL ( 2016 ) 2016/04/05

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 !

It is not peace we’re searching for

Our peace won’t come before God’s war

What we need now is Joshua

To sound the trumpets with his corps !


LIFE’S SECOND CHANCE ( 2013 ) 2013/08/23

First time out is a lifetime dream

Second time an audacious scheme

To cope with fears that you may fail

Just breathe deeply and then exhale

Forget all mishaps that you’ve heard

Think only of inspired word

Be honest in all that you do

Helpful and kind loyal and true

Pray for the chance to help succeed

Sure that you’ll accomplish the deed

Bringing you such joy in advance

When you’ve earned sweet victory’s dance.
