Thursday Thoughts (and shots) on Lots of Becauses:) Happy Thursday!



Because we are not always
As kind as we should be
We need to learn words like
I’m sorry and forgive me



Because Today
Will never pass this way again
We should at the very least try
To do the best we can

***

Because we are all
On a one-day-at-a-time course
To getting older
It is reasonable to be gentle
And rehearse
Patience with one another 

***

Because none of us
Is guaranteed tomorrow
We should not try
Its trouble to borrow

***

Because earth is the threshold
To a Greater Creation
We should kneel and ask God
To help us
Prepare for That Inauguration

*** 

Because Time is the soul’s preparation-ground
And our worth, the gift of God’s grace
Oh, pray nobody will be found
Unprepared at the end of this race
Because in the end of this life begins
the eternity we chose
here on earth, Time’s preparation ground
For ‘after the Curtain’s close’


Because the sweep of seasons slip
And slip of seasons sweep
We should get out and try to find
One memory to keep


…Because we are all new-comers
To this reunion on the grass
Grappling with the sands of time
Rushing through its glass

***


Because no one is immune
To the tune of an echo
Touch tick-tock’s harp-strings
With reverent care
Soft on the vesper
Returns not the hour
But muted mantras
Of what we played there

***

Because, love is a universal need
My dear
Its universal language is
A tear

***

Because we take and eat, dear Lord
What Thy mercies exude
How rude to stuff our faces
Without hearts of gratitude

***

Because the pen is mightier than sword
Because the tongue can kindle a great flare
We should give careful heed to every word
Before we strike a spark to page or air

***

Because we are prone to words like 'oh my’
And worn out clichés like ‘how time does fly’
Thus, we are like sisters and brothers; all human
With things like tug-of- heart-strings in common

***

Because everyone gets
One day at a time
There should be no pushing and shoving
But a hand-in-hand helping
As we climb
