The  Christmas lights are burning bright

Invading  darkness of  the night

Colors  bursting clear to  the roof

Reverberating  season’s  proof

Extending  faith they wish  to share

With  believers  everywhere

Believe  the season’s  magic will

With  love  and joy,  each wish  fulfill !

 

WITHOUT YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/10/18

Oh  how I’ve dreamt that you and I

Would  be together by and by

Somewhere  upon an island near

Or  in some place that’s free of fear.

We’d chat about  our fav’rite things

Like  love and care and angel wings

I  miss your laugh and your bright smile

Though you’ve been gone a long,  long while.

It’s  been a road with ups and downs

Filled  with wise men,  some fools and clowns

I truly don’t  know  what to do

How shall I manage without you !

 

 

GO WITH YOUR HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/10/01

Long time ago, I remember well

There was a tale the old timers tell

Of a man  who rode this way one day

Just  passing through not meaning to stay

When a shy young beauty he did see

A sweet  image for his fantasy.

Well the story goes, they got on great

While the rest of it was left to fate

The two young folks seemed to fall in love

Quite like the wish each was  dreaming of

Remember when love has a good start

Most times it pays to follow the heart !

There is this sadness I can’t shake

Sometimes I feel my heart shall break

I’ve trod so many  paths to find

Some place where fears safely unwind.

Since I have been a little child

With conscience and a manner mild

I’ve tried to be my whole life through

To all my hopes and dreams true blue.

Somehow that’s never quite enough

Because life’s road is long and tough

The battle wages on and on

With only sand to build upon !

My dearest friend,  I miss you so

The depth far deeper than you know

The “used to be”, that is, once was

My heart was thrilled,  my days abuzz.

I still recall with no regret

Too many hours we shan’t forget

The little which we understand

Of all that lies in our command

Our tender days that ought to be,

Got lost within diversity !

STILL ON MY FEET ( 2018 ) 2018/12/22

What’s that I hear upon my roof

Loud raindrops or a reindeer hoof

T’would be a very great mistake

If I some foolish error make.

There was a time that I recall

His bells were jingling in the hall

But that was oh, so long ago

How old was I,  bout five or so.

I spied the bells there on the floor

Outside of the old hallway door

Yet never caught a glimpse of him

Or of his jolly hairy chin.

I’m sure that he is very wise

Politely keeping his disguise

Perhaps next year we two may meet

If I am here still on my feet !

The day is grim, the sky is gray

I wish the clouds would roll away

They are so dark and ominous

Predicting rain will pour on us

I cannot wait until the sun

Shines once again on everyone !

Not long ago in this same place

The last time that I saw her face,

Today’s the day that I recall

The darkness of death’s knell did fall.

How sad that we shall never greet

Or hug and kiss when e’er we meet

I am so sorry that you’ve gone

We’ll catchup soon, it won’t be long !

I think that I have always been

A child of God who prays to win

The chance to walk above the clouds

Where angels gather into crowds.

I’d roam around and seek to find

A pathway that must surely wind

Along the road up to the gate

Where Jesus’ own disciples wait.

If I should act just like a lamb

And none would notice who I am

Perhaps that might be ever keen

I could be there right on the scene !

What is it that I see out there

All those rough cracks in earth so bare,

They seem to spread across the ground

New fresh roots waiting to be found.

There is this light green piercing through

Can it be that springtime is due,

What is it we are noticing

Why, first sign of an early spring !

Sometimes a special sound will bring to mind

Forgotten memories we’ve left behind

Or carry on the fragile scented air

Images of those times no longer there.

Reminders rising from some hidden past

Into this world unfeeling and aghast

And there without our understanding why

Refusing still to fade or say goodbye !

 

RETURN ( 2015 ) 2015/07/09

I can imagine all the ocean spray

With salted spume wild splashing in display

A breeze that frolics freely in the air

Oh how I dream and wish I could be there !

In the hours before the breaking of dawn

The time when stars take a moment to yawn

Just before the sun rises o’er the hill

The leaves in the trees are ever so still.

It’s the quiet that sighs passing us by

Leaving us wishing we knew how to fly

The clouds in the sky seem to beckon me

Calling my name just as though I were free.

My freedom has strings you know what that means

The one place to fly is left in my dreams !
