This rosebush was planted in my garden so I would have fresh, yellow blooms to remember my Elizabeth by.

Live It

 

Live It

If you were to say to me,

Tomorrow will not come.

I don’t think I would be able to finish,

All that I want done.

My list just keeps on growing,

So much to do and see,

I want to try so many things

So much that I could be.

So ’til my ending moments,

‘Til the final breath.

I will enjoy what you have given,

I will live it to my death.

Sweet Sunshine

Posted on Updated on

 

Drifting slowly across a bed of thorns,

Waiting always for the breaking storm.

Here it is coming up with speed,

The wind is growing, its movement a need.

And I am in awe.

The rain it dribbles, bouncing in rivulets,

The coolness of the droplets soaking in no diluent.

Dropping harder now brick-like in weight,

The drops change to daggers nothing to sate.

And I am in pain.

Bringing black clouds bounding in layers,

The storm drives right through forcing out prayers.

Un-heeding of target it crashes around,

The wind, the rain one blasting of sound.

And I am in fear.

Without a farewell, a goodbye or adieu,

The rain dissipates leaving the world anew.

Shift in the clouds and above a fresh sign,

The delicious radiation of sweet sunshine.

And I am in bliss.

Reality Check

Posted on

She brandishes her fear in a concave of doubt,

Lashing in every direction.

A hyena cornered,

Up against a wall.

Hysteria filtering to the surface,

Undiluted abdication of her realized evolution.

Swirling gray as she comprehends,

The force of gravity that confronts her.

Driving an end to a fantasy of,

What’s to come.

Finality in her breath,

Her world closes in.

Ever so gently,

I will lay you down.

Down deep in the cold hard ground.

I will cry droplets of love for eternity,

After they separate you from me.

I will kiss your eye lids,

I will brush my fingers across your cheeks.

A flower will be laid at your stone,

From this moment until there are no more.

And though I turn away,

As the dirt is laid.

I will never forget,

What transpired here today.

Saying goodbye,

Isn’t a choice.

But I will give your silent heart,

A voice.

~In Memory of my dearest Elizabeth~

First Sight

Posted on Updated on

In the shadow of a moment,

A broken vibration of time.

I saw a glimpse of your depths,

The essence of your core.

And as I sat in that fleeting instant,

That blink of an eye.

I knew that forever,

Was irrevocably mine.
