OLD SOLDIERS

OLD SOLDIERS

 

 

Getting visits from the past,

Memories are sure to last…

Memories speeded

By comments reseeded,

Those familiar scenes recast.

Visits by the formerly employed,

Help those who remember be buoyed…

A touch of light

Kindled by the sight,

Familiarity from the void.

Old friends coming home to stay,

For a short time, anyway…

Trying to catch up

In one meeting abrupt,

One hangs on every word that they say.

Ah, the memories of things no more,

That happiness and sadness stored…

For when days are slow

Memories that you know,

May still tickle down to the core!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
