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

MOONLIGHT… a short song

Why can’t the stars all come down from the night?
Clearing the cobwebs and making it bright.
And, where is the hero I promised to be?
Lost in whirlwind I tread cautiously.
 
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be washed by the rain
Removing this heartache
Removing this pain
And I never dreamed that I’d be here alone…
Yeah, I’ll keep on living…
And you’ll still be gone.
 
Moonlight it still shines there - down on the sands.
The memory is etched of us still holding hands.
And mountain tops glisten too peaked with their snow.
A lifetime is fading from years long ago.
 
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be washed by the rain
Removing this heartache
Removing this pain
And I never dreamed that I’d be here alone…
Yeah, I’ll keep on living…
And you’ll still be gone.

FINAL PORTRAIT… a poem

Explosion, Glass, Buttons, Exploding

The shards of glass

Show sides of me

I don’t think I was ever meant to see

Memories of loved ones

Gone long ago

Haunt my mind like a salacious foe

Love and hate – empty and full

Reflecting the dark-side in this poor soul

Childhood kindness

Like holding hands

Whispering secrets

And making plans

Making love for the first time

Reflecting through tears

Lost in a world

That thrives on our fears

These are the final portraits I see

As life’s vital essence spills from me

CHASING THE HORIZON.. a poem

“I am not now, nor shall I ever be,

Sated with this life of philosophy!”

Those were the last words I thought I would hear

Whispered from the lips of the one I held dear.

Then a palpable change settled in the room,

And I wondered aloud, “Could this be our doom?”

And a miracle happened, there before my eyes,

As the body before me started to rise.

Not from some ill-fated ghostly-formed force

No, this was the willingness of quite another source.

Stunned, though I be, as I stood there in wonder,

I couldn’t help but smile at the small clap of thunder.

You see, a storm had been raging outside,

As if in this room, where I gazed full of pride.

She then lay back down, content and enlightened.

With her last words she smiled – “I’ll be chasing the horizon!”

WHERE’S THE GOODBYE…a song

Remember the times we talked through the night?

Yeah, that seems like so long ago…

And, maybe come one day it will be alright,

But, tonight I’m still here alone…

~~~~~~

(Chorus)

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye…

Why aren’t you here?

~~~~~~

Rainbow

I noticed the tide flow here on this beach.

It rushes in and out, but it’s always in reach.

And the seagulls swoop down and call out your name.

I know what they’re feeling…

I’m feeling the same…

~~~~~~

(Repeat Chorus)

~~~~~~

Here at your headstone my tears falling down…

The silence it echo’s when they hit the ground.

And I know you’re up there and watching me – still.

But this broken heart’s… gonna take time to heal…

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye… I needed to hear…

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye… I needed to hear…

Yeah, where’s the goodbye… I – still – need- you – here…

AFTERNOON WALK… a poem

Man, Bridge, Lonely, Walk, Wintry

It’s not the same anymore

Yes, the dry, Autumn leaves still crackle underfoot

And Mother Nature plays her lullaby to her children

But I have eyes with a different view these days

Lost are these walks, hand in hand with the one I love

Gone are the days of deep conversation

And sitting upon the sun-soaked boulder

The twilight years are truly upon me

And, I miss you more than ever

This used to be our afternoon walk

Yet, the light of your eyes once full of life see no more

And I am here to make my way – alone

You are always and forever in my heart

But, a heart that is heavy and broken

Until I see you again, my love, I will miss you
