From Dust to Dust

From dust to dust our lives are thrust,
while flames the candle’s brief combust.
We leave the shelter of the bay,
unmindful night will follow day,
to launch our voyage, earn a crust.

All nature seems a sage august.
In paths of promises we trust,
not weighing...Read More

If all of me sums up a to a pile of smoldered ash... 
Then all of me could fit into a glass; 
If that's all I amount to on this earth,
 I pray my soul finds everlasting worth.

Praying for a Quick Death
Quickly, 
Quickly, 
Quickly.

You spoke in search of light relief

And hearing your cries for Help

I cried myself to Sleep

On the rotten old couch upstairs 

While Mum Cradled you in your Marital Bed

I Prayed religiously 

Death come Quickly

The Sky Fell Down
The sky fell down
Then crashed around me
My dreams all drowned
Leaving me empty
My blood ran cold
A poisoned river
White pain took hold
My body shivered 

The sun was gone
Leaving deep darkness
No dusk or dawn
Unbroken sadness
I stared through eyes
Blinded from sorrow
With silent cries
For lost...Read More

Some final thoughts
When you die, where will you go?
Up above? Or down below?
Will you go to feed the worms?
Will you join your friends in urns?

All those years of Godly deeds
All that work to feed the weeds?
Your final breath, a rasping gasp
Your soul...Read More

Ashes to Ashes
Ash Wednesday, one day to reflect
why Christ our souls would resurrect.	
Good it is to be in accord,
     time spent in fasting and prayer,
     repenting of sin and despair.
Good that forgiveness is implored,

Never to be hurt, by another so called man.
My heart is now shattered, in pieces like glass.
You drug me thru your hell, now it's my turn.
I'll gladly strike a match, and watch your demons burn.

Old Folks Home
Here we sit... 
On the front porch of our twilight
Losing savings to our daylight
Sometimes forgetting who we are

Placing bets... 
On who death holds up his sleeve 
Being the next one to leave
While counting our lucky stars

Where we've been... 
Flashes in...Read More

Life's journey, on a new course

The Grim Reaper, knocked on his door.

Hopes dashed upon the jagged edges of life

Going to the top of the stairs
And it's not going to stop there

Don't be full of hot air
Or you will not have a prayer

Staying up
Instead of stuck

Ashes Of Eden
We all fall, one by one
Time spent, and spent
And we are done

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Lives that we treasured
Passed, as we all must

Treading others, dark to dark
Never caring for the cost
Yet all deeds bear a mark

Sometimes a word, one...Read More

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust -
All mankind to their fate are led.
To face it - though - each human must!
There’s no need to pray for the dead.

Like motes of dust or grains of sand,
God’s children, through his worlds, are...Read More
