Sea of Memories

Because we believe,

We will not die!

We will move seamlessly

From one life to the next

But the love we have lived

Will remain:

We will not cease to be,

We become memories

Where past and present

Intertwine incestuously,

A hidden love,

Residing in the minds

Of those we leave behind.

Love never dies,

It morphs and grows,

Tumbling like a fast-flowing

River creating ripples

In the sea of memories.

Fear of Failure

Build memories,
For nothing is lonelier
Than living life in a vacuum
Of nothingness for fear
That failure will succeed
And success will fail
To deliver the dreams
Of your childhood
Where all possibilities
Still existed.

Treasure the moment
Fading like a fragile flower,
Leaving an impression
Burnt into consciousness,
To be remembered in old age
By a random trigger,
Transporting you back
To the very same moment
You stored long ago.

Easter 2018

1867F4EE-F41D-40E5-B1B3-A08A5CBB046F

You lived to die
For higher gain,
By cross and nails
Earthly slain,
King of heaven,
Died for me,
Easter Day preordained.

You didn’t act as expected
As a Messaih should,
Yet, you went where you were sent,
As you knew you would,
Willingly submitting
For a greater good:
Love laid down life for me,
Something only you could.

Oh death,
Where is your victory?
For then, oh Lord,
You rose for me,
You died yet live
Inviting me
To live for evermore!

John 11:25

“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.”

My Life-Sea

Tomorrow I will be baptised –

You, Lord, are my rock
In a turbulent sea,
In the highest waves
You reach out to me,
You whisper in my ear
That I’m strong in you
And I know
You won’t leave me
Drowning in life’s sea.

You’ve shown me, repeatedly,
That trust in you
Is repaid ten-fold,
You always hold
My head above water,
When my burdens
Pull me down,
Before I hit the ground,
You reach out to catch me.

However bad the day,
Every day is new with You,
With your love and strength
At work within me
I face the future
Unafraid, unashamed
To praise my forever-God
Who absolved me,
I will sing your praise unending,
Ten thousand years,
Then for evermore.

‘’Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.’’

 

Missing You 😘

962F2D1A-D040-471F-8C34-7CAD476E5F77

We’ve travelled home
To bring you flowers
On this Mother’s Day,
Though to see your face
Would be the best bouquet.
We can’t hug or kiss you
But mothers up in heaven
Are loved more not less,
They know we miss them,
Remember, we were blessed.

There is a heavenly portal
Mothers can look through:
From glory’s height
To earthly flowers
Just to enjoy the sight.
Mother’s Day is tough
Without a Mam to share
Today our grief’s undressed,
Tomorrow will be better,
Remember, we were blessed.

Alzheimer’s Victim

4DDA666F-EA99-4451-AF4B-96CBAC83B525

Progress inevitably
Redefines personality,
Amplifies the past
When days were long,
Names were known,
And the sun shone.
Rage builds
Eliminating rationale,
What was known
Falls away,
Disjoined memory
Fails the day.
Temper seethes,
Anger precedes
Breakdown of speech,
Tyranny of disease
Locks me inside,
Should I be fed?
You decide.

Alzheimer’s victim:
Humanity stripped
Bit by bit.

Dedicated to my Aunty Gloria.

Romans 8:26-28 The Message (MSG) ‘’Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.’’

Baked Alaska

Tonight’s curry was hotter
But I’m not sure why:
I use the same recipe
The same amount of chilli
Yet my eyes are watering,
My sinus’s cleared
My tongue is singed and
My tastebuds stripped
Of feeling!

The wood-stove is lit
And the heating’s on high,
My hot flushes are back,
I’m having an attack,
I’m heated from
From inside to out-
Maybe next week
I’ll search the books
And we’ll take a look at
Baked Alaska!
