My poem for this Easter 2015

There are times respect
Grasps at the heart
For a gift so far beyond
Incomprehensibly stilled within the minds
Of those who've seen the light
So brightly shone within mind's eye
As real as life can bare
As heroes rode a highway home
Tears welled up within eyes
A nation stood, so near, to show
Their families, loved ones, friends
They weren't alone in sorrow's depth
As their loved ones returned home

On this, such special weekend
As hearts ponder a gift t'was given
To all mankind across our earth
From one who stood divine
A gift to grant a new birth
Believe in me, the message taught
He spread his good across the lands
Followed every step he took
He lived, he died, at the hands
Of those who could not see
The good he shared, the morals taught
The love that came to be
For all mankind forgiveness
For all another chance
For all to see each other
With a mutual respect
To pass along wherever roamed
A foundation of a world to be
He rose again from where entombed
To show, living, is more than life
It is how we live
What we give
During our moment here on earth

For centuries throughout history
There are those who are the beast
Who walk our earth immoral
Defile everything they see
Decimate, exterminate
Terrorize all within their path
Who do not share a vision held
In the mind, the beast has grasped
Easter weekend is about a love
Respect beyond compare
Passed on from one
Who stood, who gave
For a better world to come
Canada was founded
On this love passed along
A nation of mutual tolerance
And respect for all mankind
We are a collage of humanity
Evolved for a world to see
That mankind from a world surround
Can share a nation free
That rise to share this goodness
Stand across a world protect
A gift from those who make it so
Who stand to hold the beast

For all those who have stood, been wounded, or given their lives to foster this goodness across our world, we remain forever in your debt. May you know the light of eternal life shared and celebrated each Easter.

For the Families of our Canadian Forces who lost a loved one during or due to their service for our nation, Christmas 2014

I have seen the frost the low clouds bring
As it rests on every branch
Glistens forth from each blade of grass
Paints pictures on the glass
Captured for a moment
Till sunshine's glow warms the chill
That froze each thought
The low clouds brought
As they wrapped around the soul
But the glisten, oh that glisten
Its sparkle shining forth
It brings the smiles, then the tears
As Christmas gathers forth
Lord our world is a reality
That spills what life unfolds
And those who've stood, those who gave
Are those we hold so close
Captured in a memory
Of a sibling, daughter, son, mom or dad
Who took that step, held out that hand
In a far off distant land
They took that step for Canada
For a whole wide world protect
And visit now at special times
As if they've never left
They are that sparkle that brings a tear
They are that laughter that brings a smile
They are that warmth now ever held so close
And at Christmas they're always near
Held forever in a heart's belief
Glowing brighter than the stars
That shines in eyes that hold them close
Throughout each Christmas time
Hang that special bulb upon the tree
The one that gleams and glows
That one that holds all Frosty shines
Glistening in the snow
For a special, special son was born
Who stepped forth to change a world
Who shared his life for all mankind
Brought forth hope of eternal life
So many tears at Christmas time
So many found in joy
So many smiles surround the tree
Each blessed Christmas morn

A thought in Remembrance, 2014. Please Know, We Will Remember Them.

A nation is measured by the hearts that beat
That make up its collective soul
And is witnessed in steps taken forth
As across a world they've roamed
I gathered my thoughts reluctantly
While about, out on a walk
A blustery day, as wind blew by
Leaves falling from the sky
I looked into the heavens
As tears were rolling down
My cheeks a chill, the tears they froze
As at once I realized
The leaves were endless soldiers
Who stood for all and gave
So we might each day have the joy
To walk in freedom's way
To not be hiding who we are
Not worry, to grow old
To not be shuffled to the side
To stand and be so bold
To demand that freedom is the goal
Of our nation standing strong
For founded in the leaves that blow
Are the hearts, the very souls
The torches passed to soldiers
From a brethren strong and free
Who stood and said no more, no more
As tyranny roamed the streets
Of far off lands, now close at home
They stood, they lived, they died
They paid the price of freedom
The price of Canada
For they have stood and given all
On behalf of all of us
A tear is just a moment
A fleeting moment's thought
2 minutes in a year that's passed
For freedom for all of us
2 minutes to remember
Those who lived, those who gave
That we could build a nation strong
Stronger by the day
But only through reflection
In the pool of tears now shed
For those who gave their very all
That we might live the dream they bled
A precious little flower
A poppy just to say
That we remember
Those who stood
In such an honoured way
Please stop for just a moment
A thought, a prayer, a tear
For those who've lost
Those who've stood
Their families, loved ones, friends
Please reflect on what
Life might have brought
If not for all of them

By Roger Borchert
