Nursery Rhyme

July 29, 2021
Last used July 29/21






Dismal failure
comes to mind 
when I recite
a simple
nursery rhyme. 

They speak of laughter
a joyous time 
while in my heart
cries of disaster 
no merry
nursery rhyme. 

Dark place
that’s what I feel 
what comes to mind
nursery rhymes.

No you won’t
I’ll be in the depths
Merry, Happy.

You can’t change that
You won’t be a clog
in the
Merry, Happy

Making Way For Another Day

Making way for another day
Forcing nothing
Living by the rules
Set in my head the other day.

Merry, happy I’ll trudge
Thru the falling snow
Breathing in, letting out
All thoughts gone wrong, bad
In yesterday’s head.

Merry May The Day Be

Merry may the day be
Intertwined with dignity
Cherish every moment
Passing by joyously
With the ticking tock
Of a wall clock
Sorry, sad doesn’t fit inside
This time I merrily pass
Here in the moments
I will relish in a ever
Ever lasting merry day.

In This House I Claim

August 28, 2012

Merry, happiness, frustration and pain
All have a place in this house I claim
None are all that places me here
Some more than others
Thats what I hear.

Work thru and challenge heartache, despair
None of which need to live here.

Open the door to the house I call mine
Tread lightly down passages
Down into time.
Touch walls built so safe and sound
Savour the flavour of the air all around
Then pad down aisles and up thru stairs
Glistening with joyous, uplifting prayers.

Cozy and tranquil is my room
Safe from danger, heartache and doom
This is where I live, this is my room
I claim it, I cherish it, I live life here
From birth to death here in my house
Here in my room.
