Dialysis

You walk in and look around; you see no warmth, nor hope for tomorrow, there is no laughter in that room. All eyes are vacant; little hope shines through…

She has flare in her eyes
and smiles like an angel.
Muse her hows and whys
her love is so faithful.

She contrives my future
and makes arrangements.
She gives me away
to transcend Her ailments.

She has flare in her eyes
yet misfortune o’re her head.
Her love for me is not disguised.
“I’m only doing this for you.” She said.

“I’m only doing this for you,
I don’t want this pain.
I’m only doing this for you,
what else have I to gain?”

Full Price


When alone and tied in knots
In the mirror confront my failings
And trouble God with all my thoughts
And wonder if he hears my wailings

Look at me, redeem my weakness
Hear me, and commute my greed
Then I find that His completeness
He paid in full, full price indeed

Taboo

sun-heart-autumn-leaf-39379
For years we’ve said “I love you”
-as casual parting goodbyes.
And now we confront how taboo
-it’s become and all that it implies.

Must we kill this love and let it die
-to keep our friendship true?
As for me how much more will I
-shirk our mores to shout “I love you!”

If your Rooster is Lonely

Rhett

We have a rooster named Rhett
He’s never been much of a pet
Used to have a bunch of hens
Gathered around in the pen

All day long he’d strut’n crow
Really put on a good show
All the hens were impressed
They felt safe in their nest

Then the critter came a prancing
The hungry Fox kept advancing
Swiftly pursuing his females
And did Rhett try to prevail?

Now the rooster named Rhett
Has a different mindset
He’s missing his girlfriends
Gone like so many whirlwinds

‘Cause when it comes to tending
And then to defending
He’s just a lonely screwball
A scared chicken after all

Emergency Room

Racing to the E.R. really bites!
‘Cause she took a header on the ice,
landed on her back to be precise,
and her wrist now pays the price.

So when it’s cold and slippery,
carefree walking leads to misery,
and if you move too briskly,
you end up special delivery….

🙂
