Remembrance…

The Season of Christmas
is upon us once again

Personally I have so
much to be thankful for
as I look back over
the past year

Good friends…
Abundance in my life…
Intertwined with
daily struggles

Remembering those no
longer with us
Brings both joy
and sadness
Missing their presence
Yet…
Remembering them
with Love...

Taste Of Goodbye

Again…
My illusion of 
safety and security
has been shattered
 
My world turned
upside down
My heart…
My soul…
In flames
 
From kindness
and caring
To…
Unbelievable
cruelty in
a heartbeat
 
Sitting at the
table of bitterness
There is that oh
so familiar taste
of goodbye 
placed upon
my Tongue

The Lair

The Lair

We are stalked in life
from the time we take
our first gasping scream
at birth
Until…
that final death rattle
 
Death is always there
stalking us…
waiting…
to take us to its
lair for the final trip
 
For some…
It is sudden and
unexpected…
Others…
a lingering…
counting the final
hours to the end
 
But…
 
The saddest…
most tragic…
are newborns
given only a brief
moment in time
until death comes
creeping from its
lair to steal their
breath before they 
are allowed to  give
their mark in time

The past two days have been a series of tragic events in the lives of people I care for deeply.  
Their sadness, pain and hurt are in my heart and on my mind…such is the life of a poet.

Walls the Color of Tears

In my life
sadness has always
found me
 
I smile to cover up…
Laugh to go
unnoticed…
 
No one knows
exactly how
I feel
 
But…
 
When I am home…
alone…
In the safety and
quiet of my shower
 
Everything comes out…
I let go…
And…
I see all around me
Everywhere…
The walls are the
color of
My Tears
