GOODBYES… a quick song

I remember when I was little

And I held my daddy’s hand

The memories come flooding in

So, I do the best I can

—————–

To try and hold back the tears

As I say my last goodbyes

Feeling the swelling of my heart

That’s spilling from my eyes

——————

You see, daddy always loved me

And I always knew it was true

And that is why, my little one

I always say – I love you

——————-

And there’ll come a time someday

When you will be standing where I do

Holding the hand of your little one

And saying – I love you, too

Yeah, holding the hand of your little one

And saying – I love you, too

RAINBOW… a poem of reflection


I have been the rainbow of yesteryear
Peaking only with the misty spray of the ocean breeze
Across the crevices of boulders scattered early in my life.
I have been the rainbow of my yesterday
Reaching over a mountain range of memories
Only to be lost amidst the cacophony on the other side.
I am a rainbow in the now
Doubled by the beauty of my reflection
Seen in the love of my life, full of conformation and joy.

Time… a poem

Time has followed me once again

From when I was a baby

To the graying hair now on my chin

How was I supposed to know

I’d never get away

No, time is always stalking me

Every single day

  
Time has followed me once again
From when I was a baby
To the graying hair now on my chin
 
How was I supposed to know
I’d never get away
No, time continues stalking me
Every single day
