The last goodbye

Inviting vibrancy as the season changed
Smiley faces bloomed, reopening dreams
Seeing you there marked a blessed event
Akin to magical when first time eyes met.

Breezing trees heard the whispers of leaves
Flirting with patterns of shadowy sketches,
There you unfolded what love could mean
Planting bold dreams in affectionate kisses 
Floating on air in the lilting summer winds

Blazing colors inspired falling ocher scenery
Dazzling in hues of resplendent paintings
As we wrote music in autumn's reverie: 
A seductive beginning of romantic ending
Composed in themes of passionate lyrics.

Mountain tops donned snow-white crowns
Satiating fantasies in pristine landscapes,
Culminating desires into sensual escapes
As the last goodbye lent your heart to me
Ending your visit and our idyllic love story.

Your beat I hear still, but it lost its melody.

Silent Goodbye

I forgot myself today
as melancholic melodies 
overwhelm each beat
of my wandering heart.

The sanctimonious sun deceives
as a bitter breeze breathes
against sullen silent surfaces.

Recycled emotions penetrate
with a repetition of deep sighs.
My spiritless soul strays, but is
happy to be lost in lyrical lament.

As the Nightingale chants its
continuous regretful resonance,
the tip of my tongue aches
to whisper your amorous name, but 
holds back knowing you can't hear.

Without your enchanted vision,
neglected eyes perish
Without your perfumed presence,
senses remain scentless.
Without your tender touch,
fragile petals won't blossom

As a cascade of sandcastle emotions
infiltrate stubborn sierra barriers.
Violent tears erupt,
demolishing hardened walls.
What used to be bitter breaths and 
spiteful sighs are now regretful cries.

Your silent goodbye still haunts
as the lips grieve for one last kiss.
I forgot myself today,
but have not forgotten your love.

The Silent One
Simple Musing

Last letter

Oh my dearest love, how longingly I recall
Amorous wink of joy, teasing zealous eyes
When you held my hand on journey of life
And never let go despite the arduous climb.

Happily you greeted what justly we toiled for,
In view of gratitude plentiful it always was
Staying true to hallmark of your own resolve
You didn't falter when fate made bad calls.

Exuberantly you reveled in garden of roses
In purple orchids and fragrance of Jasmine
Beneath cosmic infinity wooing your fantasy,
As resolutely you held on to truth of reality.

We traveled far eying cultural renaissance
In Sistine Chapel and the Statue of David
As museums found you mesmerized by art 
And paintings in Uffizi held you spellbound.

In you honor, I'll memorialize solemn oath
Lovingly etched in the temple of our hearts
Saying in your voice, there are no goodbyes
When love shall endure till the end of time.

Kiss Loneliness Goodbye written by Tim Smith and Seren

I sit here and ponder the days that have past
The many loves that I had, that just didn’t last.
One really sticks out, wish I had another chance
Treating her so differently, I’d show her romance.

I loved once a man, who just wanted to play
At being romanticlife was just foreplay.
Thought a kiss would be enough for his turtle dove
Not thinking about feelings, whether I wanted love.	

We would start a family, having a baby or two
We’d live on the hillside, with a beautiful view,
We’d grow old together in the home that we build
Giving my life meaning, I’d be so fulfilled.

He now thinks that he wants me, I am the one
to fill up his heart to make me his own.
Promising me a home on a hillside with a view
Yet he hasn’t vowed that he would be true.

I’d hold her and cherish her til the day we depart
I’d profess to her my love and give her my heart
Romantic nights on that hill gazing up at the moon
Our days filled with laughter, frolicking in the lagoon

Sure he now promises me love for ever after
A life of joy, happiness and full of laughter
On that hillside we’d sit, watching the world go by,
A family, two dogs at our feet, kissing loneliness goodbye.

Frozen Farewell

Your breath upon the window freezes, lace

               Yet, warm against my skin, its somber strains

                              As dampened words collect in tears to trace

       The drip of sorrow weeping from my veins

Your perfect lips then tremble in a smile

               To press your pitied kiss upon my eyes

                              Three words, a whispered lie to thus defile

       The beggar's hope I had of sweet goodbyes

One last embrace, to mock the frigid air

               Your warm skin buried deep within your coat

                              The final knife, "goodbye", you bring to bear

       And drag the jagged word across my throat

Your chilling crime of passion, now complete

               My love, like blood, lays your feet.

Summer Rain

I wade into the surf and stand alone,

     Enfolding in my arms, the dust of You,

               I hear the raving wind lament and moan,

          As if the summer storm is mourning, too..

I breathe your wispy ashes as they're thrown,

     And whisper your name softly while I do,

               I lost you once, and now I've lost again..

          As all my tears are summer rain.

I Need Your Help Daddy

I’m tired
I’m Physically and Emotionally tired
I don’t want to be the strong one anymore
I can’t this time
I don’t know what to do Daddy
I need your help down here

I can’t get back in control of my emotions 
I’m having a hard time dealing with your absence
I’m having a hard time standing by myself
I need your help Daddy

I’m broken and lost without you Daddy
I need your will to want to carry on
I need your strength to over come this
I need your strength to stay standing
Your courage to fight back again
I need your help 

Please Daddy I’m at a loss
How am I suppose to do this
I need your guidance 
I need you to guide me back
To whom I was before
I need your help Daddy
I need your help

How Do You Say Goodbye

How do you say goodbye to someone you've loved
With whom you have shared your life
Is a goodbye enough or "I'll see you around"
After walking together through strife?

How do you say goodbye to a person who held
Such a great big space in your heart
Do you offer a hug, or a goodbye kiss
Or a wave of the arm as you part?

Who knew when you met and proceeded to walk
Down that road filled with places and things
That you'd find such a friend with the same cares as you
A relation unending it seemed

How do you say goodbye to that loved one or friend 
Do you pretend that all is okay
Would you hold back the words and let silence prevail
Even though you have things left to say?

Did you have the chance to say your goodbye 
To someone you thought was so true
Were you sad when you realized that you had to part
Or did it not bother you?

Was the goodbye you had a sudden thing
That came at you out of the blue?
Or was it a slow one - built up over time
Not hurting as much, cause you knew

What is it you do if they're taken from you
You're unable to say your goodbye
You can hope in your heart that they knew how you felt
But now - only tears left to cry

Did you watch as the love started slipping away
Wondering how could this possibly be
After all the good times - all the trials we went through
Was I really unable to see?

One thing is for sure, new days come - old days go
And love will be lost and found
It's important to know that you gave it your best
No matter what life brings around

Now it's time to let go and move on with your life
After all - tomorrows do come
How you face it today is the healing for you
Goodbye is the right thing for some

My Parting Gifts

                 My Parting Gifts…

Goodbye my son, my only king.
You are my love, your name I sing
My wish was more to be with you,
to be with you, and see you through.
This is my fate to leave you now,
my dread was this, to tell you how.
I’m going away, place unknown
The way I lived was not my own.
I am going, to ease my pain.
Letting you go, is my complain.
I am with you, with morning dawn.
Kissing with breeze until it’s gone.
My parting gifts to you my son,
to live your life, the way is fun.
Surrender to, the thing you love,
what measures love, grows above.
To get knowledge to find out why;
what is this life to you and I?
Me and you both, we are oneness.
There is no fear, to feel darkness.
I am going without goodbye,
Remember me the way I fly

So long ago, or so it now seems,
I lost you and all of our dreams
because you'd changed inside,
a stranger you could no longer hide
In all the years of loving you
somehow I think I always knew
we would never make it to the end
but I stayed, trying hard to pretend
that we could save what we once had
Now it's all gone, the good and bad
I'm suffering through the healing years
filling the oceans with my tears
and still I cry; in bitter sorrow they pour
I wish I didn't love you anymore

Do you know what you should've said
on any night we lay together in bed?

"I'm sorry that I've made you cry
Please don't leaveDon't say goodbye
It's not too lateI know I'm wrong
My problems have gone on too long
and I'll get help because I'm to blame
I love you and I feel ashamed
I know I hurt you by closing the door
but I promise not to hurt you anymore
I've been a fool for letting you down
Please tell me that you'll stay around
I need youPlease stay with me
I'll be a better husband, you'll see
I want to keep you by my side
Please, tell me your love hasn't died."

Those are the words I longed to hear
Saying them would've kept me near
Words only in my head, not in your heart
It was your weakness that tore us apart
I wanted to see your repentant tears fall
I pleaded with youI had to crawl,
but you didn't say any of those things
It was to your bottle you chose to cling
You allowed evil to have its beguiling way
as you became more of a stranger each day
I'll always have regretsFor you I still long
I had to sing the last word of our love song
How I trembled when I had to walk away 
My aching heart thinks about you every day

Goodbye Darling Peter Pan

Dearest Child-Adventuring Man, My Darling Peter Pan:

Since that never to be forgotten day when Wendy first brought you my way, my heart has been enchanted thru and true with love for you You are as magical as your happy-thought dust that brought me flight thru star-glimmer skies, shimmering great joy from my soul-core straight to my eyes With you, I have felt amazing fantasy as enthralling reality because of the wonder that is you and your purview.

I love Neverland, Tinker Bell, the boys and the countless joys that made 
up the minutes of each day we sharedThough nothing in my future will 
ever compare, I can no longer deny that I am compelled to step into adulthood, that such is what I should do, what I am meant to do, and must do without youIn your world, I will always be your girl, but in the traditional world, I must let my woman unfurlWhat is calling me onward and forward is all that you would never walk toward and risk dying adult-bored.
By the time you find this tear-smeared note, I shall be gone for I am not strong enough in my convictions to look into your eyes of Neverland insistence Peter, as long as I have breathe, you will own a room in my heart depths that no other could assume, and though said room will hold initial sad-gloom, it will, in time, be a room of constant memory-joy in bloom 

Turn any woe into a splendid crow of much ado, repeat until woe has winded you, then smile to know - 
                      I shall always gratefully and lovingly remember you …

Edge of a Whisper

How kind of you to open up my veins,

          With little but his name upon your lips..

               Eviscerate the warmth of what remains,

     The grief of beauty strangled in your grips.

No more fallacious kisses will we share,

          No longer curious, your stayed replies,

               No mystery, your mess of tousled hair,

     Or yet, the moony fervor in your eyes.

But one thing, yet, will tantalize me so -

          A question that bewilders, you'll agree,

               Is why, with all the time you've had to go,

     You make him wait, to linger here with me?

So, plunge the blade and consecrate your crime..

          But do it slow, and love

Goodbye, My Child

Where cradled canyons sing
Of ebony wood in the forest
There lies a gurgling spring
Where cockcrows sing their chorus
To the melody of singsong birds
There I’ve concealed my sensuous words
Filled with befitted signs
The saccharine whiff of my designs

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

Where the fogs of night are fountains
Spills of glistened moon ignite
By distant silhouette mountains
We dance with passion of fight
Entwining ancient stance 
Mingling hand in hand we dance
Till the mountains smile on high
Near and far we spring
To pursue the realest of dreams
While the world cries at its seams
Anxious in trouble to cling

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

To where the ridges merry make 
From the beaks of wooden bright
In sparkly pools the ghouls awake
That scarce to stir our night
We watch for seekers down under
Muttering secrets in their soul
We bid them lucks of shivers
Dipping gently in
From reeds that hide a tear of a foal
Under the gentle rivers

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

Far away she shall ever churn
The taciturn eyed
She’ll listen no more to turn
To the working mills beside
Or the scrubbing of the barn
May peace weave in her song
She shall wave in the yarn
To a haven known as Belong  

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

For she comes, the mortal youth
To the wild realm of her truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only her tears be found

Adieu, Adieu my love and friend At the sea we two must part Your love will burn until the end In the beating of my heart. Shed not a tear in silence Not a tremble to your breath As your tears are flowing I die a mournful death. Under moon's soft silver blush And in the creeping of the dew In sober breeze, in nightly hush Let us bade one last Adieu. When morn had burst the harbors With a burning sigh we knew A final whisper, the final words: Adieu! Adieu! Adieu!
(Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you Until we meet again!)

After the snowfall but before the lily blossoms, you were this woman who left by choiceAll natural decisions made from a place of despairDarkness consumed you as you fell into an addiction with expressions of deep sorrow and remorse... step by step by step... taking steps- foot by foot by foot... Slower than a run, yet faster than a turtle, closer and closer towards your oblivion..Into mysterious unconsciousness, I whispered... "Goodbye, my love" you walked away. After the spring but before the leaves, I found you drained of energyCompletely exhausted into nothingness, and through it all, you still loved meSeems like yesterday we walked side by side- gentle breeze... You need not ask for forgiveness, sweetheart, it has been granted long ago, and before you were gone I already whispered... “Goodbye, my love" you walked away. After the sun but before the rain, you tore out the pages from your favorite bookYou wrote it at such a tender ageToo young to understand, yet too old to make believe. Big brown eyes, wearing a ball cap on your head. Smiling while hiding and running while cryingI couldn't handle this defeated hopelessness you wore on your sleeves with patches sewn on to cover up the burn holes... I sit at your grave once again. No tears, no laughter, no guilt, I stood up and whispered... “Goodbye, my love" I walked away... I wrote this during a difficult grieving time in my lifeIt had been almost 6 years since my sister Karen took her lifeShe was always saying goodbye, and it was finally time for me to say goodbye and let go of the guilt and sorrow. There's nothing like losing someone you love to suicideIt's been almost 3 years since I wrote this very poem and yet, it still touches me every time I read itThank you Strength Thru Adversity Contest Gregory Barden Written: September 27, 2016

Never Goodbye

Love is your feeling in my heart;
   love is my spirit in your soul,
and even when we're far apart, 
   we are together as a whole.

Our love is felt within so deep; 
   we see each other seemingly
with inner magic, that can sweep 
   beyond what eyes can really see.

So as we part for now my dear, 
   goodbyes for us will not be said.
You'll feel me in your heart so near; 
   I'll hold you close inside my head.

You'll live within my soul all day; 
   within your soul each night I'll lie.
Just close our eyes, and here we stay,
   and never have to say goodbye.

Romance was not our Muse

Romance was not our muse, he types
Not writes his farewells before each morning -
A simple 'Till tomorrow' left by cooling sheets.

We started as lovers, before we were friends
Speaking in touches instead of thoughts
Every night he clouded our secrecy
With cigarette smoke, an ashtray beneath my bed, 
A counter of the days we were spent.

But a playful joke turned bittersweet, I slipped
My favourite glinting stud, a gift
In his pocket lining, finding instead a reminder
Of sin and silent lives, a ticket 
To home and back to reality.

In dawn’s light and an empty bed, I wrapped 
Bruised red lips around his fading cig, enjoying
The lingering taste of him and his ashy breath.

Romance was not our muse, I type
Not write my farewells before the morning -
A simple 'Good-bye' left by cooling sheets.

Love just waved goodbye

Don’t cry for me when I’m gone 

I’ve forgiven you it's time to move on

I understand we’ve all had our doubts

And fears made us enact them all out

Don’t cry about things of yesterday 

Know that somehow, God willing 

We’ll work it out someday

So as I  walk away tears fill my eyes and we both cry 

Love just waved goodbye

I Jumped

I am the ghost of my past life.
I feel hollow, empty, incomplete,
No one can hear me speak.
I jumped
From a rooftop in budding May,
A beautiful time of year.
I jumped,
Then I changed my mind.

Nothing hurts as much
As seeing the lives
I could have been a part of
Playing out before my eyes.

I jumped
From a glass tower
Shimmering in the summer’s sun.
I jumped
And then I changed my mind.

If you're feeling down and need some to talk to, message me, know that I care about you, I don't know know you but your life is precious to me, you are lovedYou are important<3

In the Throes of Dying Love

In the Throes of Dying Love

In the throes of dying love, you’re a 
fallen angel, with no celestial saving grace.
Rose-tinted glasses shattered, you’re no longer 
my hero, just a stark-naked zero

You besmirch every passing season
that we shared…hacking them down, 
one by one, like ugly unwanted weeds
in your gardenAnd my hope for a new you 
faded with the waning silver of the moon.

You’ve lost your lissome, school-boy charms;
and the power to pinion me with your cold,
mesmerizing eyes, those squinting black holes
that once sucked me in…trying to suffocate me.

Your love is just as phony as your 
painted-on smile, and that old forged,
water-color painting of a loving couple, 
that I found buried under dust
and cobwebs in the attic.

But as that ancient, worn-out sun sinks to repose,
in the dense, oblivion of dark firmament,
so has our sojourn ended…and I’ve forgotten
why I loved you in the first place.

Sadly, like that cheap wedding ring you bought me,  
you’re irrelevant…in the throes of dying love.

I wish I was

I wish I was...

I wish I was...the sun
so I could keep you warm...
my heat would dissipate your storm
I wish I was..the sun

I wish I was..the blood
that courses through your veins...
inside you I could feel your pain
I wish I was..the blood

I know that...if you came back
we could start again...
but, I know you'd..never do that
'cause our love has reached the end
All I can say is...I'm sorry
for making...a mess of...
our life and happiness

There's not another love,
that could ever take your place,
'cause all I can your face

I wish I was..a star,
so I could shine on you...
I'd lead you home to start anew
I wish I was...a star

I wish I was...the air
that passes through your lips
I'd feel your warm and tender kiss
I wish I was...the air

I wish I was...a thought
lodged inside your mind...
I'd help you happiness to find
I wish I was a thought

I know that...if you came back
we could start again...
but, I know you'd..never do that
'cause our love has reached the end
All I can say is...I'm sorry

our life and happiness

There's not another love,
that could ever take your place,
'cause all I can your face

I wish I was..the light
I'd brighten up your day
your darkness would just fade away
I wish I was the light

I wish I could be with you
I wish you would be with me
we're supposed to be a family
I wish I was...with you

I wish I was..with you
I wish I was..with you

I'll never tell you goodbye

I'll never tell you goodbye

You might think, 
I've grown tired of you...
You might think, 
you're getting old...

You might think 
your beauty's faded...
You're not some antique 
that's bought and sold...

Even if you forget my name,
Everything will stay the same
Isn't that what we promised in our vow?
Even if you say that we are through,
doesn't mean I'm giving up on you
I could never do that anyhow!

I need you to believe,
to believe in love
I'll never, ever leave,
I'll never break your trust
I'm never going to change
my feelings for you
You don't have to worry,
there's nothing you need to do
I'll never tell you goodbye
I'll never tell you goodbye

You may have,
gained a few pounds,
but, you're always 
beautiful to me...

Better get used to me 
being around,
'cause it's impossible,
for me to leave

Even if you forget my name,
Everything will stay the same
Isn't that what we promised in our vow?
Even if you say that we are through,
doesn't mean I'm giving up on you
I could never do that anyhow!

I need you to believe,
to believe in love
I'll never, ever leave,
I'll never break your trust
I'm never going to change
my feelings for you
You don't have to worry,
there's nothing you need to do
I'll never tell you goodbye
I'll never tell you goodbye

I'll never tell you goodbye
I'll never tell you goodbye

If a goodbye echoes

If a goodbye echoes when you say hello 
And tears concealed admonish your smile
As life abandons you without hinting why,
Did you miss the sound of her silent cries?

If you need to ask how long does love last
You haven't heard the moan of her heart
Where quietly she hides grief of her wants
And quelling her passion, embraces doubts.

Her sadden vibes don't well-up your eyes
And the sound of her hurt just passes you by
As contemptuous voice ridicules her plight,

What it wouldn't say, you certainly have

I'm my Daddy Made Over

Dedicated to my Dad Jerry WNiday 3/20/1952 - 6/18/2013

I am who I am because of him
He’s the reason for my son’s name
He gave me my courage & my strength
To stand tall even when standing wasn’t easy
Stand for the ones who can’t
To think and fend for myself
I’m my Daddy made over

Taught me to fight back 
To never back down
How to pick myself back up
When I’ve been knocked down
Fight for what I believe
I’m my Daddy made over

He gave me my stubbornness 
Gave me my pride
Gave me my temper
Taught me not to take crap
To speak my mind to no matter who
Work for what I want
I’m my Daddy made over

How to keep my emotions in check
How to handle large amounts of pain
When in trouble he always had my back
He knew how my mind worked better than anyone
I got it from him
I’m my Daddy made over

Even though he’s gone
I’ll stand and continue on 
I may stumble I may fall 
May even get hurt along the way
But I’ll pick myself back up
I’ll dust myself off and stand tall
I’m honored and proud to say
I’m my Daddy made over

We Lost More Than a Dad

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost we four girls first love
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half 
Our children lost their Papaw
We lost our family’s foundation 
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew 
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we four girls Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We four girls lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We four girls lost more than a Dad
We lost more than just a Dad that day

Life Lesson

I love being young, getting to ride the roller coasters.
The sound, tick, tick, tick, tick-like a heartbeat racing to the top.
Then, surprised even when you know it’s coming, dropped into the abyss.
Something always pulls it down, like gravity.
It’s frustrating, riding something so close to being dead.
So far away but still so close, seating rows.

I hate being so close to, yet so far from the row.
She was in with me on this roller coaster.
Adrenaline rushed my body so fast almost leaving me dead.
The blood flowed so fast emphasizing the highs of the top.
But something keeps pulling me down, gravity.
Here I am again, back in the abyss.

In the ride, weeks of no communication, the beginning of the end, the abyss.
The scariestMy worst fear of my youthLooking back at the rows,
I see her, with my own image, my heart sinks moreI hate you gravity.
But it’s the only thing that fuels the roller coaster.
Nothing makes me happier than bringing it back to the top.
Let’s hope this isn’t so abrupt, so fast, like the last one, leaving me dead.

How I hope so much, so much hope still not dead.
The heart, the love, the eternal abyss.
Strikes me back with enough momentum to reach the top.
Lines, love, flashing like an old film, with rows.
Showing me a movie, reminding me of, a roller coaster.
The movie explained that the only thing that keeps it going is gravity.

Thank you gravity.
My worries are gone and dead.
Just accept it, and love the roller coaster.
Appreciate the loneliness of the abyss.
The reason you’re here is for the ride, not the rows.
I just want to enjoy the youth and its happy tops.

This coaster, like love has its tops.
But something brings it down like gravity.
Distanced with rows,
Never seeing her again, thinking she’s dead.
But deeper and deeper coming out of the abyss.
The complicated life of the young, the love of roller coasters.

Get on the roller coaster, rise to the top.
Don't worry about the drop to the abyss, It’s because of gravity
That you’re not dead, and I don't care about the rows.

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

A Mothers Last Goodbye

“Good-bye my daughter dear,” she said As tears welled up in her eyes “It’s time for me to go to sleep This must be no surprise The good Lord knows my battles And my health is ailing still He’s given me so many blessings I’ve passed them to you in my will I’m sad to say good-bye For we have shared much joy Remember me to Sarah My grandchild I love and enjoy I love you my daughter These years together have been sweet I’m so glad you love the Lord And again we will meet I’m not afraid of dying ‘Cause I know that in a while Christ will call me from my grave I feel my life has been worthwhile For I taught you to seek your Father To help you through every trial He’ll always be there to guide you With never a denial I leave you in His hands”, she said As she gently kissed her daughter’s hand Her eyes closed very slowly Against cancer she’d lost her stand She’d been a wonderful mother Teacher and true friend Faithful to her Lord And gracious to the end.

Last Sigh of Goodbye

"Last Sigh of Goodbye" charming candlelight lost radiant glaze emotions vanished into twilight dust broken pieces of heart swallowed in maze as passionate masquerade died in lust. fleeting embers of deceit bid adieu' one last sigh of goodbye stole life's faint breath a love letter spoke words of love untrue in painful fond farewell eyes closed in death. beyond dark grave lies loneliness and tears 'tis better to have loved and lost in life yet ultimate betrayal spirit sears impaling soul with wounds deep thrust of knife. painted finale' carved in canvas cries caressing love in bouquets of goodbyes. *For Harry Horsman's Goodbye Contest. *Nov15, 2012

Hollow Circumstances

I want to howl, run and flee, 
not to watch what I don't see.
I want to rise, run and flee
 not have to watch what's in the sea.
Tonight, I am like a seed unplanted,
 blown by the wind.

I pray not to remember 
that day in December,
 when the grass was green
and I fell in love with you.
I wish to forget when my life
 felt so soothing with you, 
when we met under the sparkling moon, 
that unique night in December.

I crave to forget how your eyes 
used to close, whenever you kissed me,
 forget the way your heart beat,
 whenever you whispered in my ear,
how much you loved me.
Forget how you used to rest 
your head on my shoulder,
tell me words I wanted to hear,
 forget it was only you 
who could make me sigh.

Help me forgetIt was only you 
who could illuminate
my darkness,
 it was you who could thrill 
my heart with love.
I have to forgetIt was only you,
who could sway me to understand  
how to grant my reverie 
become real.

Let me forget how each night at twilight 
 we would pray for the evening, 
to be just the two of us, 
dream of the days send 
just to be together.
Forget how our sweet souls
would reach the sky, touch each other
until we could no more endure,
but make love.

Help me forget how my dreams 
started to develop a sweet sensation,
than previous ones, after I laid eyes on you,
that day in December.
Forget how dancing with you
was almost charged with electricity
whenever we touched.

Let me forget, how you appeared 
that day in December like an illusion, 
when the light went on.
Suddenly, my life was shining,
nothing was normal when I knew
 you were the one and only,
forty five years ago.

Tonight, we became separated shadows.
Tomorrow, will become hollow circumstances.
You left me sinking in my tears.
