An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

Till Tomorrow

Words support
and words can hit
Words resemble walking sticks

Words surrender
Words betray
Words give hope and love away

Words compel
and words deceive
Your words comfort and yet you leave

Words give all
and words still lack
Bitter words behind your back

Words confirm
and yet deny
Slay your soul with vicious knives

Words to cure
Words to lure
Words through clenched teeth – nothing new

Words of love
and words of hate
Words have put you in the grave

Wrath-rotten voice
Empty word make empty noise

Words of sorrow
and frustration
due to words alienation

Words restrict
and words retrieve
Words of wisdom, words naive

Words create
and words destroy
Mighty words in mighty voice

Words can judge
and words forgive.
Word of God, do you believe?

Can I be what
I want to be?
Still man of words but man of deeds.

You wait and see,
Just wait and see.

I’ll pray for you , you pray for me.
