Remember



Remember that love might be fleeting,
but your heart will never lie.
If trust and respect are pillars,
then true love never dies.
 
Remember those who throw their daggers
at another man's pride,
Are often themselves aching
from daggers deep inside.
 
Remember when parting with money,
help those who can't themselves,
But for the lazy who choose regression,
keep your tithes unto yourself.
 
Remember to follow a mentor
when following your own true heart,
And when it's your turn to mentor,
be sure to duly impart.
 
Remember to respect the aged,
whether their minds are sound or not,
For when your years are fading,
you'll want the turn-a-bout.
 
Remember to be a guiding light
to every youth you see.
And forgive their indiscretions,
Less you forget who you use to be.
 
Remember to keep your riches
behind a pauper's shield,
And save them for the days
when the harvests refuse to yield.
 
Take pride in the daily expenses
when maintaining your humble abode,
For ignoring the tiny parcels,
might soon be a pachyderm's load.
 
May the friends you keep be true ones,
and not selfishly their own.
And the love you show yourself,
to others may it also be shown.
 
If the path you think you're taking,
is as wrong as you duly fear,
Just trust your inner compass,
for a new path starts right here.
 
Remember these things together,
in everything you do.
For when the good Lord comes calling,
the world will remember you.

I've Had My Day



It's come to pass
I've had my day
I've touched some hearts
along the way
I've lifted spirits
and succumbed to fears
Shared some laughter
and shed some tears
 
I've battled the wicked
and defended the good
Cowered at times
 and at times I stood
I've taken some hits
and dished some out
Maintained my faith
through times of doubt
 
Held winner's banners
and loser's shame
Honored my family
and disgraced my name
Commanded attention
and challenged my mind
Tested some boundaries
and crossed some lines
 
I had true wealth
yet thought I was poor
Gave as if Jesus
 was there at my door
Taken the blame
 for what others deserved
So maybe I'm not
 what you thought you observed
 
While not always perfect
 I still tried to be
My life is a legacy
 and my legacy is "Me"
As I reflect back fondly
 I'd have to say,
I'm the exception
 I've had my day

Summer Days




Towering Oaks shade the street below


Two-wheeled acrobats playing in the road


Their laughter fading as they're off to play


Baseball mitts on handle bars, they ride away


Oh how I long for those days


 


A three-person chorus carries a rhythmic tune


of "Apple Jacks, Cracker Jacks, Spitting on the Moon"


Tapping beat, leaping feet, jump rope sways


Breaking the boredome of the summer haze


Oh how I long for those days


 


A circling tricycle with wagon in tow


A cargo of passengers stuffed in a row


The ringing of a bell helps clear the way


Until "Suppertime" is yelled, then no more play


Oh how I long for those days.

First Bike




I remember the bell
 on my first little bike
 blinding to the eyes
 as it reflected the light
 ringing to all
 who ventured my way
 a tell-tale warning
 of a kid at play
 
With the flick of a finger
 the purest of tones
 like a driveway conductor
 I let it be known
 It was "full steam ahead
 so out of my way!"
 As culdesac king
 just a kid at play

 Freedom was mine
 when first I learned
 to pump those pedals
 and make those turns
 And oh how I marveled
 and long to be
 a two-wheeled acrobat
 not a baby on three.
 
The years soon pass
 and memories fade
 It seems long ago
 since my three-wheeler days
 Yet close to my hearts
 and to grandkids I tell
 of my first little bike
 and the sound of its bell.

Volunteers



Smoke on the horizon
 The call comes down
 A neighbor's in trouble
 In our quiet little town
 From miles around
 The sirens they hear
 On galloping horses
 Come the Volunteers
 
They hitch up the pumper
 To the strongest of teams
 With a crack of the reins
 It's off to the scene
 With others on horseback
 And gear in tow
 Suspenders and helmets
 Away they go.
 
They get there in time
 To dowse all the flames
 Our unsung heroes
Hiding from fame
 They work as a team
 For the good of us all
 All risk some
 And some risk all.
 
For those who have paid
 The ultimate cost
 Of dying as heroes
 And the families who've lost
 And all those remaining
 Our heartfelt plea
 May the Lord watch over you
 And grant you Godspeed.
