My Body And Soul

When five score years have come to pass
And I close my eyes at last...
In restful repose within Mother Earth
My soul shall see a second birth.
For as my body lies at rest in the grave
God ~ ever mighty - my spirit will save.
And as I walk through his Garden fair
Admiring the roses... 'You' will be there.

My Bonny Boy

The bounteous sea sings a merry song
With lyrics that tell me he's coming home.
I have been waiting so very long
And now my heart holds joys unknown.

Behold! I see a ship a-passing
Across the horizon, sirens blasting.
Oh tell me, tell me I'm not dreaming
And soon I'll see his smile a-gleaming.

Ship ahoy ~ come sailing my way
Please bring my 'bonny boy' back to me.
I will count the minutes of each day
Until from longing my heart is free.

The swirling sea is never wrong
When she sings her Autumn song.
Joyce Hemsley



My China Replica

When out and about in the City
Oft' I repeat a secret prayer...
Where is the old-fashioned Cross?
I can't see its attraction anywhere.

Oh, if only I could see the Cross
My obsession would be set free.
All my troubles would be lost
With my inner thought on Calvary.

But alas, I find no Cross of Jesus
No symbol divine do I see...
I rush to my home 'where the heart is'
and my china replica waiteth for me.
Joyce Hemsley



My Darling Comes Back To Me

I sit in a car park in my crimson limousine
admiring God's glory, towering above me.
People pass by on a grand shopping spree
as I wait for my dearest to come back to me.

A beautiful car park, amid the green trees
on the outskirts of town near saltwater seas,
I love watching butterflies and flight of the bees
as I wait for my darling to come back to me.

This morning is sunny ~ really calm and serene,
I notice a charming smile, am I being naive?
A young man approaches; only now can I see
it's the smile of my dearest who runs back to me.

To the jewellers he'd been, do my eyes deceive?
he bought gold and silver. He bought it for me!
With his manner so kind, I am no longer blind
to the love of my darling who comes back to me.
Joyce Hemsley
