Millions  of dreams have  gone astray

Because  of wars we  fight each day

When  does  it end,  shall we survive

What  must we do  to keep alive ?

So  many  innocents to  save

By  heroes who have  filled each grave

And  what of all  the families

Left  behind with  but memories ?

Of  fathers,  sons and daughters  too

Who  gave themselves  in lieu of you

Bless  them all  and promise to be

Defenders  of their  sanctity !

The  tears I shed are not for me

But  for all those who used to be

Part   of our world  now gone astray

Like  ashes of life’s  yesterday.

Once  each  possessed a name and face

And  came from a familial  place

They lived,  they loved,  they breathed the air

And  met the  destiny  all share.

How  strange that we who’ve  stayed behind

Have  yet our  destinies  to find

With  nought a  hint of what  comes next

Of  where  to go or  whom to text !

AMEN.

At  times  I  try so very hard

For  all my sadness to discard

To smile and bring my life on track

And pray to lure  good humor back.

Our  lives  are but a  series of

Moments of fear,  joy,  tears and  love

However  tough  the times  may be

It’s  always  just  temporary  !

 

 

EVERYTHING ENDS WITH A KISS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/27

My  life is strained and hard to bear

Too  many stories left to share

A   little up,   a  little down

A  happy smile,  a tiny frown.

Some  days are great and others sad

As  life is full of  good and bad

Tears  are there  in the midst  of bliss

Where  everything  ends with a kiss !

 

 

FINAL REST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/08

When first I  held  you in my arms

My sweetest child  so full  of charm

You stole my heart and my soul too

Like no one person  e’er could do

I  never thought  that life would be

Full of  this  joy you’ve  brought to me.

 

In all the  years you  did not fail

Or steal  the wind out of my sail

We’ve weathered  every sort of storm

And kept our lives about  the norm

Tis tragic that you  couldn’t  stay

Wherein at last  my heart will lay !

 

OUR SAD CUP ( 2019 ) 2019/08/12

When I was young,  my dad he died

And  left  us so  dried up  inside

There was no way to help explain

The  basic  anguish or  the  pain,

Through all these  years we’ve hid  it well

And  never did  that   sadness  tell

It’s simply there reminding me

Of  all  that life once used to be

It’s too late now, none can catch up

This  heritage is our sad cup !

Our lives are  full of sadness and things that  have  gone  astray

For who  can  face the  madness  and  the  pain of  yesterday

Oh  Lord,  we do miss  the  dreams that have come and  gone  away

But  who can  bear this  agony  we  live with day  by  day ?
