Missing You

  

Miss you in the early hour, the sky in darkness grey,

Miss you in the daytime, while the children all at play.

Miss you in the evening, as the sunlight fades away,

Miss you in the dreamtime, beneath the moonlight, lay.

~ D.F.

Farewell

  

Soft the raindrops falling, tears from heaven, send,

At last, your road is ending, now, its final bend.

There, His angels waiting, for you, their hands extend,

To bear you up to Jesus, farewell, my dad, my friend.

~ D.F.

Candy Sweet

  

Your kiss before I go to sleep, a blessing, what a treat,

What had been sad and bitter, now the taste of candy sweet.

Then leading on to dreamland, where in secret, we will meet,

There our pledge of love renew, till the end of time, repeat.

~ D.F.

Lead Me On

  

Pen me a little song, to lift me through the day,

Words, their form and flowing, illumine the darkness, grey.

A tune so ever catching, the spirit’s call to play,

Leading on, the highs and lows, a swagger and a sway!

~ D.F.

Eden Days

  

Take us back, our land and home, to where it all began,

To the meadows and the hills, to where the river ran.

Then was hope and promise, creation’s wondrous plan,

Amid the lush and lovely, the vast horizon span.

~ D.F.

My All



The sum of my existence, the close of all my days,

The hour of every season, a glimpse of all your ways.

Sitting, walking, sleeping, oh, in all things, song and praise,

Until that night should claim me, my all to you, I raise.

~ D.F.

Belated



Belated have I known you, the sense of Your presence deep,

Walking through the forest floor, light through the foliage, peep.

Calm by the quiet stream, the spring of the cricket’s leap,

The scent of the flowers, wild, the moon, its watchful keep.

~ D.F.
