Do you  know why I’m missing  you

From early morn till  nightfall too

I   cannot bear you are not  here

Please bundle up,  get back in gear.

The sky is  falling,  have you heard

My heart hangs onto  every word

Tis true, I  shan’t see you again

But no  regrets,  remember when !

 

TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES DEPARTED FROM MY LIFE

The open window invites the breeze

To sashay in from beneath the trees

Take a dance around a room or two

Sharing fresh air between me and you.

Enjoy the night times secret pleasure

Amidst the joys we all do treasure

Remember how fast the seasons fly

Before we each have to bid goodbye

As the nights grow cool before the dawn

And the years we loved are too soon gone !

There was a dream that I once knew

When you loved me and I loved you

So long ago in years gone by

Before we had to say goodbye.

I stood there all alone that day

The day that God took you away

Somehow I didn’t comprehend

Was this the way our lives would end ?

Now here am I still standing tall

Awaiting God’s last curtain call

Stay with me Lord, I need Your strength

To get me through this final length !

I hear the train move on the track

I think it says  ” click-clack, click-clack “,

And wings upon the breeze to here

Appearing to be ever near.

Our journey soon will reach its end

Without our luggage or dear friend

We’ve bid goodbye as trav’lers do,

Goodbye, so long and toodle-oo !

 

 

I MISS MY FRIEND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/07

Before I entered in life’s maze

I’d been alive a thousand days

I walked and talked and learned to sing

Good manners came with everything.

My mother,  she was but sixteen

Had never been a high school queen

She was my best friend my whole life

Through happy days and those of strife.

The hard times came, then went away

But left the scars of yesterday

Sometimes when I do quiet sit

Those memories may be relit.

I’ve often wondered how we did

When daddy died, I was a kid

Today the days just seem to fly

I must learn now to say goodbye !

 

 

FAREWELL MY CHILD (2019) 2019/02/21

I really don’t know how to hide 

This sadness that I feel inside 

I’ve tried so hard to do it right 

E’en though I’m lost, night after night. 

The ache is there and won’t subside 

And all because my child has died 

Love’s all we’ve got no matter what 

The grief remains though we may not. 

I love you now, I always will 

Until my heart at last is still ! 

 

I CANNOT SAY ADIEU ( 2019 ) 2019/01/17

There are so many varied things that I have learned to do

Twixt time and need and fuss and rush before my life is through

Yet I recall the one and all that is most overdue

I’ve tried so hard, I don’t know how, I cannot say  “adieu” !

 

TO MY SON.
