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 !

Sometimes the world is full of gloom

Its sadness darkens every room

The seasons change, they come and go

From springtime’s warmth to winter’s snow.

Days roll on by with no account

Midst tears and sighs in great amount

And justice finds it needs a place

To challenge evil’s false embrace.

What was has been and is no more

Once lost will never be restored

The saddest words that one can say

Oh Absalom, you’ve gone astray !

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 !

Not long ago in this same place

The last time that I saw her face,

Today’s the day that I recall

The darkness of death’s knell did fall.

How sad that we shall never greet

Or hug and kiss when e’er we meet

I am so sorry that you’ve gone

We’ll catchup soon, it won’t be long !

 

LIFE’S LAST SLEEP ( 2017 ) 2017/12/05

There’s been so many friends along the way

That have gotten lost or have gone astray

While their faces blur and the names escape

Memories get caught in the charged landscape !

As the past rolls by and the time moves on

I will wait here like an old mastodon

In a silence that I would like to keep

Until I close my eyes in life’s last sleep !

I never thought I’d rue the day

Once that I gave my heart away,

I stored my dreams upon the shelf

With no reserve about myself.

This life I planned of magic theme

Would ne’er become idyllic scheme

It didn’t take too long to see

True happiness is never free

No matter how we try and try

There’s no kind way to say goodbye !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !
