Paul Warren Poems
Love - I Dream Of You
I dream of you When I feel the first rays of the morning sun At evening when the long day is finally done On a blazing day when a cool breeze blows
War - Ww1 - A Whisper On A Summer Breeze
An Australian day is dawning bright and new In a wide bright sky forever painted azure blue Kookaburras laugh greeting the sun's arrival The steam engine strains awaiting its revival
Haiku – Your Path Forward
Blue sky forever on Stretching to the horizon Is your path planned?
Christmas - The Day Of The Year Is Here
The day of the year is finally here Again we gather together in good cheer Christmas Eve is the Carols by Candlelight With those treasured songs sung so bright
Musings - The Voice
I have a little man who whispers in my ear I may not always see him but he doesn't disappear You know he knows right from wrong and will tell me quite clear Whatever it takes to find the truth I will know it is now near
World - End Of Life Options
I watched something on the television in a program about Euthanasia And since my father died from cancer what palliative care would be a saviour I can understand I think how sick people would want a choice in their death And some dignity with it from degenerative diseases that are horrible in their breath
Musings - My Spiritual Guide
They say everyone has a spiritual guide So that your decisions are not too one eyed I’ve thought this through so this is my list What about Elvis who has a musical gist
Social Comment - Who Will Stand For The ...
In judgement’s call a parchment list revealed Of deeds indefensible and innocence congealed A baby left all alone in an oppressive heat The mother’s denial was for herself to secrete
Haiku - The Great Southern Land
Hot days and cool nights Perfect Australian weather The Great Southern Land
War - Ww2 - Hugo Boss Designed The Secon...
Hugo Boss designed for the German Army uniform And it was said that they were the the best dressed form You see when conquering Europe under the jackboot hordes To look your best on battlefields had its own rewards
Life - What Do We Care
We read the stories but what do we care Of innocents lost that are too much to bear What do we say amongst ourselves How bad it is or thank god it's not ours to delve
Written In Time
End of time It doesn't matter If you will be there For once you have ended
Death - Tears Are Not Enough
A man demanding white supremacy stands with a gun Church goers cower as bullets speak their evil done A grand-mother, coach and preacher breathe their last Tears are not enough surely the day of the gun has past
Love- Would You Die For Me?
Would you die for me? She asked of me If there was no other way for me Would you give you life for me?
Musings - Who Am I
I wonder am I made of all my deeds done
Or how others have perceived me as one
Perhaps it’s the Fates to outline and decide
Or in the end it may be just my foolish pride
Did God outline a course to steer me onward
Or I did not see God’s plan to be honoured
Who is to say when my life is finally at end?
Or in a second chance could I make amend.
