Two Sons

Facing you son, holding you in my arms, The bright light I saw, The love I felt, Never to melt away. Son, you filled my face with a smile, Your little hand grasping mine, Our love connecting that early Autumn Day, Hospital room full of glee. You won so many hearts that day, I’ll always…

Family Time

Grind’n down that block, Ol’ cheese, McDonald too, Skateboarding down Kentucky Avenue, Unlock that Oley, how’s that view? Grandpa’s shop, out back, Whacking on this and that, Black out, head count, that playboy magazine, Playing heads and toes, she’s got a lot of that. No worries, everything’s as it seems, Grandparents getting down to that…

Madre, Madre, Madre…

My sweet Madre, On my memory wings, Floating through remembrance valley, Your heart and soul, Sharing mood with me, Smiling as we fly, Just you and I, My beautiful Madre, Flying on happiness, Floating down sadness, Carrying each other through madness, Taking hands everyday, My gorgeous Madre, Your smile shining bad moods away, Your heart…

Thoughts

Produce life only for it to be torn from you, Taken from father, tears tear bonds, Waiting in the court que, Only to be found, Guilty of human qualities, Cash gone, housing lost, Picking up pieces, Offspring always on the thoughts.

Departure

It is with sadness I depart, To fly off paved tarmark, Soaring high and homeward bound, To my old home town, Vast is the feelings, And in truth there is no telling, How I will miss you so, Leaving my family behind in winter snow, Merry were the holidays, Building everlasting memories, Blessed were we…

TRAPPED, but letting go.

The truth hurts deep inside, I let you walk all over me, I let you take our kids away from me, My life hurts, I can only imagine how much you hurt, I can only imagine how your heart burns, to reek revenge on me, For how I hurt you, Everyone see’s but you, The…

VETERAN

Boots on my feet, Living a hundreds of fleeting dreams, Memories float like stars all about, Catching glimpse of an old me, Young, fit, and motivated, Standing out, shining bright, Medals that mean nothing, Awards for jobs well done, Paper trails everywhere, Automatically judged and alienated, A lot of us get caught by drink or…

Distant Love

Looking into your eyes, Long has it been since I saw them, Your photo held dear to my heart, Your voice a trailing memory, But, still my love remains, Growing each day, As you grow behind curtains that never open, Your stage a mystery to me, Growing into a man, Your the star that never…

Meeting My Grandmother

Sitting at your grave the other day, I had a conversation in the rain on this May, Grandma, we never knew one another, But I can’t help but wonder, How your smile would of made me giggle, Or if your tickles would of made me wiggle, How your cookies tasted, And how everlasting your love…

Tiny Hand

Your little hand wrapping tight around my finger, Bright blank eyes seeing only dim light, Fogged images, love melding us, Forever locked together, Father and son, Bond forged in iron, Locked behind gilded lock, Key and die set for eternity, Sealed away forever in our hearts.
