My First Train Experience

Life’s Railway

Life is a lot like a railway
As we travel along through time
Clickety clacking along our way
A good life we seek to find

Photobucket

Photobucket

We pass through many places
Meet folks both good and bad
Have experiences along the way
Many happy but some are sad

Photobucket

Photobucket

Some of the places we travel
We never plan to return
But others stay in our memory
Good lessons we have learned

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

We never know what we will see
All we can do is take it day by day
Doing the very best we can
As we travel life’s exciting railway!

Colors of Life

Life is like crayons,
That gives attractions,
It is filled with colors and meanings,
And so interesting…

Photobucket

Life is like a rainbow,
That others doesn’t know,
It is full of excitement and glow,
Which will be remembered all day long…
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Photobucket

From beginning till ending,
From sadness to happiness,
From failure to success.
GOD is always with us…here…there…and everywhere.

Childhood Religion

I have lived most of my life with individual expression and thought
At times sacrificed free will and allowed it to be bought.
My religion has been brought from out of the past
While life is the present and precedence does not last.

I understand that there has to be building blocks for life
But I question why the foundation caused so much strife?
I was taught to confess childhood sin
With a penance from man for a new life to begin.

Power and fear were the idols of my church and thusly so
Human compassion and forgiveness seldom did we know.
When I observed my pastor in military regalia go to the altar
I thought how cruel and therein did I falter.

That moment I lost my belief in a church I did chose
But I have faith in the eternal gift which I will never lose.
Over the years I have sat and listened to others
Mostly words from the past and seldom from my brothers.

Old Yearnings do Not Fade

No need to give away
Dreams that haven’t been steady
Just meet another day
And be again quite ready
For burning desires to burn
And give of their thousands or more
And something from this all learn
When you are wholesome and sure

Photobucket

Year shall be going on to lost
For everything drifts here on
Or becomes like the leaf’s rust
When life from the times are gone
Decades will fly and you’ll long
Every footstep that went away
Remember each touch so strong
That once was here but couldn’t stay

Photobucket

Old yearnings do not fade
They just become so ‘newfangled’
When daylights in sunsets are made
And differently weaved and tangled

Song of the Boatman

  Come Sir, I shall
take you across
safe and easy
in my small boat
across the river

Photobucket

we are all
crossing all the time
going places
and passing stages;
let me help you
on this one, Sir

PhotobucketPhotobucket

a small fee is all I ask
and really it’ll be a
pleasant journey across;

PhotobucketPhotobucket

you can put your
hands in the cool water
while I paddle us across

PhotobucketPhotobucket

I was born here
in the sheds along the shore;
I learned my trade
as soon as I could walk;

Photobucket

all my life has been here
and this is where
I shall be all my days

Photobucket

Photobucket

PhotobucketIt’s all good, Sir, for me
if I can do a good turn
as you pass by;

Photobucket


and so you might
also do me a good turn
at the end
giving me a deserved fee
that I can bring to my
wife and children

Photobucket

Photobucket

Come Sir, I shall
take you across
safe and easy
in my small boat
across the river
