Something to Think About Something to Ponder a song by Bob Clark

Posted on: May 17th, 2022
A Sappy Load of Shit

We got tall buildings but shorter tempers, 

Wide Freeways,  narrow viewpoints. 

We spend more money, but got less real things

We got bigger houses but have smaller families, 

More conveniences, but less time with them

We have more degrees but less common senses

Got more knowledge, but less judgment

We think we’re experts, yet have more problems

Take more drugs, but feel more badness. 

We spend too reckless, laugh too little, 

Drive too fast, let anger control us

Stay up too late, get up too tired, 

Read too little, watch to much TV, 

We don’t listen but talk too easy

Make a good living, but not a good life. 

We’ve added more years  then we die to crabby. 

Been to the moon and back, conquered outer space 

We’ve done large things, but have so little peace. 

We’ve cleaned up the air,  but polluted our minds. 

We’ve conquered the atom, but forget to be kind

We plan more, accomplish less, always in a rush,

Can’t even wait for just one late bus

Build more computers to hold more stuff

Always complaining that we don’t have enough

Steep profits but shallow relationships. 

We worry more   but pray much less

Two incomes  but more break ups

Can’t understand I think I need to give up

These are days of quick trips, and fornicate

Lay lady lay  and throwaway babies 

We need a solution  we need a  answer

Someone told me I’d find it in scripture

Spend some time with the ones you love

Say a kind word    give a warm hug

Do a kind thing for someone in need

Say, ‘I love you’ and do a kind deed

Life isn’t measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Let There be Light song by  Steph Macleod

Posted on: April 29th, 2022
When I sail the lonely deep
          Dm             Am
When the midnight watch I keep
                                       E7
I stand amazed as stars on the billows gleam
            Am                 Am/G
And though I know a storm is rising
    Am/F#          Am/F
High above the dark horizon
Am              E7                      Am
I know oh Lord, I know You are here with me

[Chorus]
               Am
So let there be light
          Fmaj7        C
Lord let it shine
          Esus         E             Am
Out of your heart  and here into mine       
                       Am/G
When it rains from heaven above
          Am/F#          Am/F
Let it rain sweet heavenly love
            Am
Let there be light
E       E7              Am
Oh Lord, let there be 
[Verse 2]
There’s a call on the restless tide
Like a longing endless night
And it breaks the bow like a raging symphony
And though I may be far from shore
I am anchored to Heaven’s door
And Lord I know, I know You are here with me

[Chorus 2]
               Am                  Fmaj7   C
So let there be light    And Lord let it shine      
       Esus            E                       Am
Out of your heart               and here into mine
                               Am/G
Lead me out of the eye of the storm
       Am/F#                   Am/F
Into the promise of the crimson dawn
               Am          E     E7                Am
Let there be light    Oh Lord, let there be light
[Bridge]
Am                      C/G
Your grace is enough Your grace is enough
F                       E                       E7
Find me here oh Lord surrounded by an ocean of love             X3

[Chorus 3]
               Am
So let there be light
               Fmaj7   C
And Lord let it shine
         Esus          E                     Am
Out of your heart               and here into mine
                               Am/G
Lead me out of the eye of the storm
       Am/F#                   Am/F
Into the promise of the crimson dawn
               Am
Let there be light
       E7                      Am
Oh Lord, oh Lord, let there be light
Am/G       Am/F#        Am/F
Let there be light, sweet Jesus
               Am      Am/G
Let there be light
F                    E7
Let there be light oh Lord
               Am
Let there be light

“Loving You” – a song for Greg and Sheila

Posted on: April 11th, 2022
I’m sinking  falling
Almost to my knees
I am shaking I’m hurting
Tears run down my face
I am missing you right now again
It’s not an easy time
It hurts so bad I’m crying
Can’t say I’m doing fine

You’ve been here in my life just 20 years or so
You brought me so much joy 
Would never let it go
You lifted me so high
Our hearts would touch the sky
You’d bring me down real slow
We’d snuggle here so close
 
All those blissful days my memory is full
The sea, the sky, the land the world
Your joy in it exposed
Tomorrow you had plans and me too
Marriage Love and home
Why was I allowed to have you 
Then to see you go

Now sweet baby you’re flying
I can see you climb
Now my child your sailing
Free from earthly pine
My precious girl your home now
Can almost hear you sing
All your dreams are real now
Living with the king

The wind is crying to me 
The clouds are streaming on
The crowded stars are blinking winking
I’m trying to understand. 
The sun would make me see it 
If it shines a million times. 
When children ask me to do it
I Do it one more time

The sun will rise tomorrow and 
The stars will understand 
And I will rise tomorrow 
Just as daisy’s are all twins.
And God will shine upon us
While he holds us in his hand.
And I will grow much older but
Loving you will  never end

“Am I a Fool” a song by Bob Clark

Posted on: February 25th, 2022

I saw you coming down the road away

Your clothes askew and it’s the middle of the day

Your body language says that you don’t care

If I was waiting here or anywhere

Am I a fool Am I a fool 

To think that you’ll be true

Think I’m a loser well think again

If there’s a loser then count me in

Feels like I suffer from an actual wound

The hurt gets deeper every time you move

Am I a fool Am I a fool 

Cause I’m still wanting you

I loved you more than once I got to say

It’s killing me each time that you don’t stay

Can’t get you off my mind I’m not sleeping

Got to admit you’re driving me insane

Am I a fool Am I a fool 

I’m still loving with you

Am I a fool Am I a fool 

Am I a fool Am I a fool

Ah hell I still love you

Best Friend I Ever Had a song by Bob Clark

Posted on: February 16th, 2022
My Dad, Elmer George Clark in the garden

Best Friend I Ever Had

He spoke in a soft and quiet voice

And then he’d listened for a while

I’d want to hear his gentle words

I’d want to feel his tender smile

Folks around town  called him Mr.

He would greet everyone with a big “hello” 

Then he’d asked  “how you doing”

They would feel compelled to tell him so

He was a simple kind of man

He’d reach out take my  hand

He’d lead me straight to Jesus

He was, 

Best Friend I Ever Had

I could tell him all my problems

His eyes would smile when he bent down

He would always stop what he was doing

I  knew he’d understand

He had a garden out back home

On knees I’d see him pulling weeds

Then he’d take a bag of produce

He’d always find someone in need

“Breathe In Me” a song for Eva by Bob Clark

Posted on: January 28th, 2022
Give me bread when I am hungry
Give me wine when I am dry
Give me hope when I am losing
Breathe in me Your life

Is there a reason to this madness
Is there a reason to this hell
Is there a way to rise above it
Can I escape this prison cell

Is it true your loves forever
Is it true you came to die
Is it true You really suffered
And I’m the reason why

Can I know you hold tomorrow
Can I know you hold today
Can I feel your arms around me
Can I trust that you will stay

God groans with us, is with us in suffering and meets us in this place. The stripping away of our security or what we think faith to be in the easy, forces us to have a new understanding of joy and peace within trial and testing. I think it’s comforting to know that we have a God that isn’t above our sorrow. He’s with us in it and feels it even more deeply than we do. He doesn’t expect us to have answers or to defend His sovereignty in this. He just asks us to abide in Him. I’ve seen it practiced in our house church. There’s so much encouragement in abiding, listening and communing together the way we have been. Love you all so much.

“Laugh” a song by Bob Clark

Posted on: January 9th, 2022

You broke a part of me I didn’t know existed

I saw it coming but I hoped you would miss it

We had it going on I thought it would last 

But then my heart got cut in half

And all you do is laugh

Hey little misses 

You suckerd me with those kisses

Hey sweet moma

You knew I couldn’t resist it

Hey pretty lady

You tickled me you drove me crazy

Hey honey baby

I can’t believe how you played me

Hey dear honey

So fast I saw it coming

Hey little darling

The way you stabbed me like lightning

“I Wish I Had Wanted You” a song by Bob Clark

Posted on: December 23rd, 2021
I wrote this song after reading a poem by Andrea Roncato an Italian actor who had aborted his baby when he was in his 20s

I would have liked you to be small, so I could hug you.
I would have liked you to be big, so I could lean on you
I would have liked you to be looking out the window in winter, watching the snow begin to fall.
I would have liked you to be lying under the covers during a storm, silent so you could hear the sound of the rainfall.
I would have liked you to be kind to dogs, so you could pet them,
and affectionate with the elderly, so you could love them.
I would have liked you to be handsome, so I could brag about you,
with big eyes, like your mother’s.
I would have liked to sing to you, to make you fall asleep, and continue the dream that woke you up.
I would have liked you to be shy, so I could see you blush,
and stubborn, so I could argue with you.
I would have liked you to be at my side, so the two of us could walk in silence,
trying to understand what the other was thinking inside and couldn’t manage to say.
I would have liked to teach you all the things I don’t know how to do.
I would have liked you to leave someday, so I could have the pleasure of seeing you come back home.
I would have liked you to experience your first love.
I would have liked you near me on the day I must leave this world.
I wish I had wanted you, that time when I didn’t want you …

ANDREA RONCATO


I wish I had wanted you that time I didn’t want you
I wish I had wanted you “Now”
I wish I could take it back What I did then
I wish I could take it back “Now”

I wish I could hold close but I can’t even hold you 
I wish I could hold you baby  “Now”
All I can tell you baby is  how much I love you baby
I wish I could tell you “Right Now”

How many days since I did you wrong
How many days will it be
How many days since I hurt you baby
How many days will it be


I wish I had wanted you that time I didn’t want you
I wish I had wanted you “Now”
I know I will see you soon I know I will hold you soon
My heart is holding you “Now”


How many days till I see you again
How many days will it be
How many days till I hold you baby
How many days will it be?


Merry Christmas
