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 !

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 !

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.

Oh my dearest child, what shall  I do

When your time on earth with us is through

As your voice is silenced fore’er more

You will knock no more upon my door.

We shan’t have those chats of heart to heart

Like we did before we had to part

I’ll miss you for my remaining days

Remembering  your familiar ways.

This will not change and can never be

Since God has chosen to set you free !

WE SHALL MISS YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/10/10

We’ll miss you love, when you have gone

And seek God’s strength to carry on

Twill be so strange as in this case

We’ll ne’er again meet face to face.

Nor shall we ever ” tete a  tete ”

As soon we may tend to forget

How much we pray for one last kiss

Too late we all have been remiss !

The pages of the calendar do fly

Like storm tossed leaves across a windy sky

Days of our lives now swiftly pass us by

Their hours, minutes all whispering goodbye !

 

NO LAST WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/03

At times I sense a whistle

As it rides upon the wind

There silent as the thistle

While it begs, “please let me in”.

When the moment seems to die

And the quiet does not bend

All the world whispers “goodbye”

And each friendship must now end !
