My Friend Judge Not Me

Joos van Cleve,The Last Judgment, about 1520/25, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

My friend iudge not me,
Thou seest I iudge not thee:
Betwixt the stirrop and the ground,
Mercy I askt, mercy I found.

I Sought My Soul

Artwort by Yuroz

I Sought My Soul
I sought my soul,
But my soul I could not see
I sought my God,
But my god eluded me.
I sought my brother,
And I found all three.

Hold My Hand

The moon has not
even begun to go.
And the sun had yet to start
its brilliant shining flow.

I lay here thinking
about you all the time.
You're the only thing
that sticks inside my mind.

Through thick and thin
You're there by my side.
You promise to be there.
You keep me alive.

I love you so much.
You can never understand.
I'll be with you forever.
Just promise to hold my hand.

The Good Thing

The Good Thing

The good things of life, if to all we should look
Would swell our poor ballad quite up to a book;
The mere calls of nature contrasted are sma
'Tis greedy ambition that gapes at them all;
Then keep within bounds and limit the ring,
And contentment you'll find is a very good thing.
A competent income, enough to supply,
All we want, we can modestly wish to enjoy,
Is a very good thing, with sufficient in store
To relieve modest merit or give to the poor;
No matter though fortune deny her full swing,
Enough and to spare, is a very good thing.
The Parson himself, who holds self denial,
As a very good thing, when prov'd in the trial,
That by loosing the world we gain the grand prize!
Neglected by souls, thought the wish of the wise;
The money he says is of evil the spring,
Will grant a good living's a very good thing.
When plied with good liquors your Poet will sing
Ambitious of soaring aloof on the wing,
Still aiming at rising in fancy sublime,
To catch nothing less than the laurel in time,
Then carols away, like a bird in the spring,
That a butt of old sack is a very good thing.
Our Lawyers and Doctors in one point agree,
The marrow of practice lies all in the fee;
Both Clients and Patients may find out the cause,
When Physic has drench'd 'em, or drain'd by the laws;
The fee to the palm so attractive will cling,
Your sensitive touch is a very good thing.
With rev'rence an authoriz'd passage we bring,
"He that hath a good wife, has got a good thing."
And the proverb says plainly, "A wife in her shift,
Is allow'd on all hands as a heavenly gift!"
To the queen of good wives then strike ev'ry string,
Ye Bards, a good wife is a very good thing.
But of all the good things while in life we exist,
The blessing of health stand she first on the list;
All orders of men will subscribe to the test,
That 'tis health, florid health, far passes the rest,
Then granting good health such a very good thing,
Let us wish it to all from Peasant to King.

    Always Remember

    Always Remember

    Always remember to forget
    The things

    that made you sad
    But never forget to remember
    The things that made you glad.

    Always remember to forget
    The friends that proved untrue.
    But don't forget to remember
    Those that have stuck by you.

    Always remember to forget
    The troubles that have passed away.
    But never forget to remember
    The blessings that come each day.

    Time to address
    a new year
    …. enter

    deal with the project at hand
    yet resolve not to dwell on past
    never stop dreaming
    even on the last exhale
    and find it in your heart
    to forgive
    then you will be forgiven in likeness
    even when sad
    this provokes the inner smile
    to surface
    take each day
    as it’s dealt
    and be thankful for the wealth
    mother nature doles
    now take a deeeeeeeeep
    meditative breath
    you’re alive … aren’t you?
