Eternal Rhyme

Eternal Rhyme


Day has come; the night has fled.
Hope has sprung and raised its head.
Worries wonder about what to do
The heart is warming; its beat is true.

Another day has come along.
You have a chance to sing a song
different from the ones before
that rubbed your heart and made it sore.

Spring’s returned into your step.
The warmth consoles and gives you pep
to march this day against your ‘foes’
and stand your ground in sweet repose

and show the world just how you’re made
not soft and easy, as once portrayed
but ready to stand to fight the fight
with lifted ‘sword’ for what is right.

Vanquish worries that hold you down
and guard the spirit, you’ve turned around
and be what you are….and be it strong
cause this is you….this is your ‘song.’

Not all will like it, but that’s okay.
Life is different in every way
and you are needed to share this time
and play your part in this eternal rhyme.

Life’s Road

Life’s Road

As I look back across the time,
I find that life is like a rhyme.
I never know what’s next to be;
I walk with eyes that cease to see.

Day by day, I walk the grind
down life’s roads of endless time.
Never knowing but always fearing
the future end I know is nearing.

Fear not I, the fact it nears,
but the work to do that numbers, years,
Praying for the time, for what I must do
before fades the light of the earthly blue.

I was born….a chance to live.
to fight for life, and, if so, mine give.
And if the next page of my life, it be…
that I must die….I’ll die for thee.
