The shadows drift down through the trees

And shimmer in the gentle breeze

The dried leaves crackle underfoot

The chimney’s belching smoke and soot

The nightfall moves in like a cat

With moments ripe to have a chat.

A chill is in the air it seems

Soon time for reverie and dreams

The quiet shifts into the past

I think the day now breathes its last !

 

HER LAST KISS ( 2018 ) 2018/02/21

Today’s the day I lost my friend

It seems the pain will never end

There is no way I can replace

Her kind and gentle smiling face.

She made me feel all warm inside

I was her precious joy and pride

It seems that we were meant to be

Best friends through out eternity.

Well here I am, it’s still the same

This hurtful, ugly nagging pain

I guess I’ll learn to live with this

The memory of her last kiss !

 

MY OWN ( 2018 ) 2018/01/06

The love I knew when I was small

With hugs and squeezes by the score

That was the best that I recall

Along with being kissed galore !

I never thought that as I grew

All those moments would stay with me

And add to all the joys I knew

To be my favorite memory.

It’s long ago, the times now past

I wonder where the years have flown

I’ve never found a love to last

Or one that I could call my own !

The year is ending, tis soon o’er

We’ve left the cold and closed the door

Begin again with brand new start

To lift  the caution from each heart

As all those moments we recall

Ere all the shades of night may fall

Among the times we shan’t regret

And those that haven’t happened yet !

 

 

MISSING YOU ( 2017 ) 2017/12/06

My dearest child where are you gone

What masquerade have you put on

Among the memories we’ve kept

Or midst the tears that we have wept ?

I’d like to know if God’s been good

And kept you safely as He could

For in your life you did no wrong

There seems no place you can’t belong.

My heart desires that you should know

Though you’re not here I miss you so !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ELEGY FOR DENO ( 2017 ) 2017/10/08

I hear the echoes through the trees

Life’s shadows move with each new breeze

Old voices carry loud and clear

And fall upon the listening ear.

The book has closed the story ends

And bids farewell to all our friends

To leave one nothing more to say

Ere we are forced to look away.

But let us go in peace and calm

Believing one must do no harm

Remembering those days of yore

And all of paradise before !

 

 

CHOOSE TO FOREGO ( 2017 ) 2017/07/02

My heart flies high on silvered wings

As I embrace rememberings

For all on earth I have not seen

And places that I haven’t been.

Like memories forever lost

It matters not whate’er the cost

Some visions I will never know

Are those that I choose to forego !
