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 !

 

TO SAY GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/18

There are no words that can help explain

The length and depth of a mother’s pain

Losing a child no matter the age

To an illness or another’s rage !

Through the passage of time, aches may fade

As sadness and loss are all displayed

Seems the worst of all that can be said

Are that those we have loved are now dead,

And with heavy heart and tearful sigh

Were denied the chance to say goodbye !

 

 

CURTAIN CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/13

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

 

 

SUMMER DAYS ( 2016 ) 2016/09/02

Let’s say goodbye to summer’s days

With all her happy carefree ways

It’s sunny nature, flimsy clothes

A boater’s call of “thar she blows”,

A picnic lunch upon the beach

And no place left the sand can’t reach !

Well times do show and pass away

As we wake to another day

And realise that summer’s gone

While fall’s been left to carry on

But wait, there must be more to see

For time does reach eternity !
