Something from Nothing?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 25, 2023 • 12 Comments

It seems we stood and talked like this before. We looked at each other in the same way then, But I can’t remember where or when. The clothes you’re wearing are the clothes you wore. The smile you are smiling you were smiling then, But I can’t remember where or when. Some things that happened... Read More

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere. Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue. If I can dream of a better land, where all my brothers walk hand in hand, Tell me why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true? There must be peace and understanding sometime. Strong winds...

I used to think that I could not go on. And life was nothing but an awful song. But now I know the meaning of true love! I’m leaning on the everlasting arms. If I can see it, then I can do it! If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it! I believe I... Read More

The best things in life are free. But you can give them to the birds and bees! I want money. That’s what I want. That’s what I want. Your love is such a thrill. But your love won’t pay my bills! I want money. That’s what I want! That’s what I want! Money don’t get... Read More

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and... Read More

Jesus loves me! This I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong; they are weak, but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so. Jesus loves me! This I know, as He loved so long ago, Taking children... Read More

The Hard Problem

Spring was never waiting for us, dear. It ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance, Between the parted pages, and were pressed in love’s hot, fevered iron, Like a striped pair of pants. MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark, all the sweet, green icing flowing down. Someone left the cake out... Read More

To dream the impossible dream. To fight the unbeatable foe. To bear with unbearable sorrow. To run where the brave dare not go. To right the un-rightable wrong. To love, pure and chaste from afar. To try when your arms are too weary to reach the unreachable star. This is my quest! To follow that... Read More

Which is Real?

He can turn the tides and calm the angry sea! He alone decides who writes a symphony. He lights every star that makes the darkness bright! He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night.  He still finds the time to hear a child’s first prayer. Saint or sinner calls and always finds Him... Read More

What Are We? (#1)

What kind of fool am I, who never fell in love? It seems that I’m the only one that I have been thinking of. What kind of mind is this? An empty shell? A lonely cell in which an empty heart must dwell? What kind of clown am I? What do I know of life?... Read More
