WHERE TO GO ( 2020 ) 2020/01/03

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.

My  heart is heavy,  laden down

As  my whole world  is turned around

My  face  is veiled and  hidden by

Shadows  of tears  I cannot cry.

The silence  of the  night  is there

To  masque  the cloak of fear I wear

Oh  blessed Lord  make my way light

Please  help me get  through one more night !

 

 

 

 

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 !

 

 

 

 

 

HEARTSTRINGS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/07

I wish I were a  child  again

If  only to  remember when

We both were young, so long ago

And life was our own picture show.

We laughed and loved, it was such fun

For us  our world had just begun

Each moment  held a new surprise

It warmed our hearts and teared our eyes.

I’m  sorry  that it didn’t  last

But left  behind  its storied past

To still  tug on these old heartstrings

With sadness  that  forever clings !

That sometimes love may waste away

When it can find no place to stay

To learn at last life’s saddest part

Trying to piece a broken heart !

 

I’VE CRIED AND CRIED ( 2018 ) 2018/12/09

It’s been awhile since you’ve been gone

I find it hard to carry on

My days are long, the hours unwind

To seek the peace I cannot find.

A part of me has lost its way

The rest seems to have gone astray

I heard those last words that you said

They are imbedded in my head

O’er every word, I’ve cried and cried

My son, for you, I would have died !

 

 

 

WITH DEEP REGRET ( 2018 ) 2018/10/30

If there were something I could give

That helped you heal and made you live

I’m sure you know I would have tried

With all my power from deep inside.

For I am far too old you see

And have half filled my destiny

Your turn was next, without a doubt

Why did I fail and had no clout ?

I am sorry, you had to lose

No other exit one could choose

I’m trying hard, I can’t forget

Now left in tears with deep regret !
