October 1985


To God, In Thanks for Friends


seemingly uncaring

the world ambles by

preoccupied in destiny

golden achievements

just around the bend

it trips me up

knocks me flat

stomps me down

all but kicking sand

as it passes



far too heavy to lift

fears me further


prayer is tried

and doesn't work

for days and even weeks

till alone

a voice is heard

distant though it be

it praises God

and so must I

and so return to life


since the life line

I could not grasp

God  came down

and kindly helped

thank you Lord (God)

for your angels



In thanks for one phone call from

Annette VanderMolen, who praised

our God and so cheered me up
