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.”

Good Friday 2018

A96DEB3B-93AF-40F8-8E07-246120AB27FA

You bled,
Death defying deity,
Magnificent intimacy
Of God upon a cross,
Dying unconditionally,
For us.
Your love,
Alive in perpetuity,
Grace endlessly
Streaming to earth
Through history,
For us.

I marvel
At your magnanimity,
At the continuity
Of your presence
When we
Deny you.
You never
Relinquish responsibility,
Despite unlikely possibility
Of contrition from
Your creativity
Today.

Matthew 28:20

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

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.

Psalm 103 King James Version (KJV)
‘’Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.’’

 

My Shadow

43C7087C-502F-417E-BD08-CE1A454D973BMy shadow
Can’t be parted
From my side:
Lies beside me
Every night.
Snuggled down
Atop my bed,
My pseudo-baby
Wriggles and wriggles,
Pushing ever higher
To reach her goal
Of head on my pillow,
Nose in my face
In a doggy embrace.

I feel her
Stepping carefully
Between limbs
Changing her spot
Reverently, quietly,
Never disturbing me:
This girl is just perfect.
Whenever I wake
Whether early or late,
She will be waiting
For me to move,
Never waking me,
Just adoringly,
Next to me.
