THE FLAG



THE FLAG

IS MY HEART

FOR IT HAS BORNE

THE BRUNT OF WAR

TATTERED !

YET STILL, 


HOLDING STRONG.

DEDICATED TO ALL 
WHO SERVED THE CAUSE
FOR FREEDOM IS 
A HEAVY PRICE TO PAY.

POEATREEMAN


WAR HAS TAUGHT ME

SORROW
WALKED ME HOME

LOVE GAVE ME CARE

GOD FORGAVE ME
FOR ALL I’VE WRONGED

PEACE I PRAY
WILL COME TO ALL.

FOR WAR
WILL SURELY
KILL US ALL.


NO REMORSE
WHEN DEATH
TAKES ITS TOLL


ALL IS LEFT
IS A BURNED OUT SOUL.

FOREIGN PARTS ? | POEATREEMAN on Xanga

 
Our MILITARY
  •  
    Cannot Run
    on FOREIGN
    PARTS

    If WAR
    Breaks out

    What
    FOREIGN
    COUNTRY

    Will it be?
       


    FOREIGN OIL

    Can we
    Depend on the Sum?

    Made in USA

    No
    PARTS will I See

    We gave it to another
    COUNTRY

    Hoped it would be
    FREE..



    Made in
    GOD'S COUNTRY

    Will I ever See?

    When no
    PARTS are Here

    Will I have to
    March across
    The SEA?
           


    I Left
    AMERICA

    To get the
    TANKS
    Working Here

    I Went across
    The SEA

    To get
    AMERICA
    MOVING
    FREE



    Better to keep it Here

    Than to be Depending
    on FOREIGN
    NEEDS

    Made in USA;
    IS BETTER
    when we need.


    Who Fills the
    PART

    When PARTS
    are all the need?

    Is it DUBAI
    or GOODBYE

    When the
    PARTS

    Are Across
    The SEA?
           

    A Poeatreeman
    From A Play of Words

    DO I HAVE TO

    CROSS THE SEA

    TO GET

    THE PARTS I NEED?

TRIBUTE TO Highwayman - Johnny Cash (the highwaymen)

video


THE TRAVELLER


Take a Hike!
You
may find God

If
you get it Right?


You
are going
in this Direction


What is Left

If
you do not go Right?


Another
Way
to take your Life


I
am Travelling
towards what end?


When
I see the point


I
will know its Direction


I
Hiked all this Way


I
better be Right


I
hate to think
I Lost my Way


Who
will find me
and bring me Home?


I
hope it is God


Who
Travelled the Way


I
came this far
to find my Way


I
Travelled the Highways


found your Steps

Lord
Am I here


Or
do I need
one more Step?


A Tribute
To Johnny Cash


A Poeatreeman
Lord
I took the First Step

When
you brought me here

I will take
the Last Step

When
you call me away

Between!
I
hope
to Learn your Way.


A Poet's Note
What is One Step
away from God

One
that is not
Taken Right?

One
is Closest to Him

When
One Keeps Right.

A TEAR FOR IRELAND

video


MY INTERPRETATION DANNY BOY


MY INTERPRETATION

DANNY BOY

A SAD TALE

OF IRELAND'S

TURMOIL.


Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

MEN OFF TO WAR

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side

THE  CALLING OF ARMS

THROUGHOUT THE LAND.


The summer's gone, and all the roses falling,


THE MEN ARE FALLING IN WAR

A SEASON CHANGES

THE MEN ARE DYING.


It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.


MY LOVE I MUST LET YOU GO TO WAR


But come ye back when summer's in the meadow



WHEN   MY LOVE RETURNS HOME


and love will be ablaze once more


WE CAN FROLIC THROUGH THE FLOWERS

WHERE THE SUMMER

HAS WARMED OUR LOVE.


Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,

WHEN PEACE HAS HUSHED THE LAND

TEARS HAVE CLEANSED THE HEART AND LAND.
                       


It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,


I WILL BE WAITING IN THE SUN

OR RESTING

WHERE I SLEEP FOREVER.




Oh, Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so!



But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying


WINTER HAS COME MY LOVE  I AM CALLING


If I am dead, as dead I well may be,

I MAY OR MAY NOT BE

YET MY LOVE WILL NOT END



Ye'll come and find the place where I am lying,

LOOK FOR ME WHERE I REST
               


And kneel and say an Avè there for me.


I WILL  HONOR THEE BY SAYING A PRAYER
FOR THY SOUL TO REST.



And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,

                   

I WILL HEAR YOUR GENTLE WORDS
THOUGH I’LL TREAD SOFTLY AT YOUR  GRAVE


And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be


BECAUSE I KNOW MY LOVE HAS COME TO ME



For you will bend and tell me that you love me,

I WILL HONOR THEE,  GENTLY SPEAK OF LOVE



And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!


I WILL FIND A PEACEFUL RESTFUL SLEEP
WHEN YOU’RE THERE WITH ME.

FORESIGHT


Use your Tears
Where
The Flowers
Grow Most

Use your Heart
Where
The Pain is Most

Use your Cares
Where
Love is Not

Use your Smile
Where
Children Frown

Use your Hopes
Where
Dreams are Real

Use your Kindness
Where
Hatred is Bred

Use your Patience
Where
Understanding is Needed

Use your Wisdom
Where
Ignorance is Spoken

Use Yourself
Where
Love needs Seeding

Use your Faith
Where
God is Served.

MY SWEET LORD; TO TOUCH GOD

video


TO TOUCH GOD


If I could
Touch you
With my hand
.

I would
Reach out
With my heart
.

If I could
be
By your side
.

I would
Stay there
All life long
.

If I could
See you
With my eyes
.

I know
I would
Lose my fears
.

If I could
Be
A little bit
Like you
.

I know
I would
Have hope
For me
.

If I could
Know
The things
You feel
.

I would
Want
To share
Your pains
.

If I could
Know
I was not bad
.

I know
You would
Come to me
.

If I could
Be
As sure as you.


My faith
Would be
As strong
As yours
.

If I could
Have
A moment
With you
.

I would
Give
My life
To you...

CLOCK OF LOVE



CLOCK OF LOVE

LOVE
MAY PASS THE HOURS.

YET
NEVER CHANGES TIME.

ITS HAND
KEEPS MOVING.

EVEN TILL
THE END OF TIME.

IT’S WOUNDED
BY THE HEART.

EACH BEAT
IS ITS MOVEMENT.

KEEPING
THE HEART IN CHIME.

THE HEART DOES GO ON; REMEMBER ME

video


REMEMBER ME

                 
When love passes
Remember Me

The way
it used to be

When day passes
into night

As twilight falls
and you're asleep

Remember
the dreams
we use to have

How we hoped
to make it true

Remember
all the things
we did

How we were
when we
were together

Remember
all the love
we had

How we felt
for one another

Remember
all the tears
we shared

How we laughed
at each other

Remember
all our pain
and sorrows

How we hurt
one another

Remember
the love
we had before

How we thought
it would
last forever

For I Remember
all we did

Still I wish
we were together

Most of all
I Remember you

With Love,
Tears, and a Smile

For all these things
are you

Each time
I think of you

I Remember
how it use to be

Hope you are,
Remembering
Me..

THE LONG BLACK TRAIN; A SHOT IN THE DARK

video


A SHOT IN THE DARK


Fate is no Stranger 
For I am its Course.

The differences between
Destiny and Fate .


Is a matter of Choice


If I turn the bend
Will it lead me

To the End?.


If I take the Curve

Too Fast

Will I turn at the End?.


If I am at

The Crossroad

What Track

Am I on?.


No choo choo train here

Nor whistles

Blowing

To tell me
What's Ahead.


Only Light and Dark
That I must Tread.


No Stop Sign

To Watch..


Except

What I have done.


No signal to alert.

If Conscience
Is not on track.


No light ahead
If I am in the Dark.

No Conductor
If I am its Charge.

A Poeatreeman

There are two Roads,
One Course

There are two Ends,
one Right

There are two Choices,
One Left

There are two Fates,
One Heaven

There are two Doors,
One Open

There is one Time,
When I was Born

One God,
To Open the Door

One to
Close it all Behind.

& THE LONG BACK TRAIN
