anniversary

this is inspired by a picture of a guy looking at a piece of bread with one candle 
on it,  http://allpoetry.com/amyrowsell

today would be our first wedding anniversary
but I lost her, a month ago
a guy was driving drunk and crossed the line
that night he took the life of mine
you think that they would learn 
driving is a privilege you have to earn
I hate him for what he has done 
he took away a mother from me and our young son
nobody wins when people drive drunk

That January Day

You loved me, this I know
but then you had to go
and things were never quite the same again

On that January day
I kind of lost my way
and those thoughts and feelings just elude my pen

I was but eleven
when you went off to heaven
it was quite a jarring lesson at that age

And now 40 years have passed
since the day I saw you last
when I learned the hard way I must turn the page

You know, I miss you dad
and I would be so glad
if only I could see you once again

When I finally come your way
I’ve a world of things to say
All those feelings once elusive to my pen

A Nation's Son




Lichen claimed the headstone
As he lay there 'neath the ground,
Long since tended, overgrown
No flowers to be found.

The grave was of a soldier
His duty borne with pride,
June the 6th '44
Was when this young man died.

In this unkempt graveyard
Sleeps a nation's son,
Who paid the price, his sacrifice
His actions, bravely done.

Here lay but his mouldered bones
For when he fell upon the sand,
The Lord came to care for him
And held his waiting hand.

Hugs

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

This is me

My knees were the things that 
kept me up and my skin is my 
cutting board my eyes are the 
rain clouds to the fire running 
down my arms and my heart is 
the fire place that keeps me 
burning so calm

Demon

A devil
Evil spirit
Regarded as cruel
The jealousy

A little clock face

 
It has memory's 
It has anniversary s
It has deaths
It has  births
It has a lot for a little clock face.
It has weddings
It has dates
but above all else it stop us from being late.

Pearl Harbor

Bury me not
In an old church plot
Back in my hometown
No, bury me
Beneath the sea
Where my Navy mates went down
Please take me back
To that day of attack
Pearl Harbor in 41
I’d like my remains
With all of those names
When my time is finally done
I fought beside
So many who died
There on that fateful day
Just grant me this
As my dying wish
That I rest where my shipmates still lay

Mdailey	12/7/11

There was an article in the local newspaper about Pearl Harbor survivors having their ashes buried there in the harbor.  I just had to write this poem.

Grandfather

Here lies the best Grandfather,
One who was very considerate.
Remembering him as a child,
I would sit on his lap.
He was a rare person indeed.
He was a colonel in the Army.
Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.

In Comma

Peaceful and relax
At rest but traverse freely
Altered consciousness

Will to access all
Suddenly achieve by thoughts
Radiating oneness

Empathy ignites
As parameters extend
Embrace love without.

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Love,Life and Death

Life and death
Are mysterious things
You love a living one
in your Heart, 
By your heart 
You also  love a dead one
But in your Mind, in your memory
When your beloved is no more 
When she is dead
Your love shifts places
From Heart to Mind 
You want her corpse to be removed
as soon as possible 
and buried, burnt in fire
Or left to the vultures
depending on what last ceremonial plan
 you believed in 
and chose to perform
Living ones are loved 
Dead ones too 
but death is so scary 
that whenever someone dies
one tries to get rid of him atonce!

The Apple PASTURE

DONE



                             The Apple PASTURE

Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture.
Were once was and all well meet.
A pure and dear site.
Where silver reflection cover the still waters that holds the golden
grains of morality and the grazing souls lie young amounce no stars.
Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture
Were winds smell of melon and the trees whisper spring corals in the mellow dark and best of light and time creeps into no tomorrow.

Bunty





‘BUNTY’ 

We didn't meet often, not often enough.

But you were there, when life got tough.

I knew just all I had to do.

Was to pick up the phone and chat to you.

You helped me through the last few years

A lot of sorrow, and many tears.

Life won't be the same again

Rest in peace Bunty, after so much pain.

I MISS YOU

I MISS YOU
I miss you
When the wind whistles
I hear you call my name
I turn,turn and turn again
Forever you are gone

I miss you
When the aroma fills the air
Memories of you fine cooking
I hunger, empty stomach pains
Forever you are gone

I miss you
When I late for Sunday service
Wish you were here to wake me
I rush, skip and jump to church
Forever you are gone

I miss you
When bad words slip my tongue
A scold, a spank you would give
To keep me straight, right and up
Forever you are gone

Forever you are gone
And forever I’ll miss you
Your name my name
Somehow you still liveth in me
And your dream I will finish.

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

Wedding Anniversary

dressed
in
chiffon
hair a bun
with couple loose strands
solitaire around her slim neck
for Anniversary dinner at their seafood place
lost in a concoction of his adoring gaze, music, Merlot and blackened salmon 

knock
on 
the door
she answers
her knees buckle down
mascara runs down in rivers
dressed in black, holding lilies, head hung low—there stands  mom
darling,lets visit his grave before dark—mom says to flooded eyes in an ashen face

REMEMBERING THEM IS DEEP SORROW

Remembering them   
is deep sorrow piercing the  
inconsolable 
heart that must weep to release 
what the flesh can't overcome.

The Ghost I Knew

Can I catch you
Can you stay?
Forests at wood
There we play
A gentle hand 
That fixed the dress
Brushing tears back
Saving stress
I can not bare
The oaken wave
Only memories
Can I save
I miss your hair
And what it covered
More than a mind
God knows I loved her
The ghost I knew
She rests away
I can not catch you
You can not stay.

Candle in the Wind

I've made this trip 1000 times,
For better or for worse,
This wooden bench that wore my spine,
Is where we had our first...
This cupcake and a candle,
Is the most that I could carry,
To celebrate the life we spent,
Everyday that we were married...
In spirit you still have a home,
To lay and rest your head,
Although it feels like Im alone,
I can feel you in my bed...
Every picture has a deeper meaning,
Than it ever did before,
So I look for you in every dream,
Until I cant cry anymore...
And the candle left a year ago,
Leaves me without a doubt,
That when the wind decides to blow,
It is you who blew it out...

NEW AWAKENINGS

“NEW AWAKENINGS!”

Hummingbird soar with your tiny might
Great red fuchsias  are at bloom again
Red purity so beguiling a call so bright
Brings you forth to carry your aim
To help propagate new life next spring
Nature's awakening call will always 'ring'

BORN TO LEAD

BORN TO LEAD

HE IS A LEADER
BORN TO LEAD  AND RULE
MOSTLY TO MAKE ODERS
HE HAS THE BLOOD OF THE LAND RUNNING THROUGH HIS VEINS
HE HAS A HEART THAT BELONGS TO THE KING OF THE JUNGLE
WHEN HE ROARS ATTENTION IS SEEKED
HE IS THE CHOSEN ONE
HE IS TO SACRIFICE HIS BELONGINGS TO BUILD A NATION
HE WITHSTANDS EVERY OBSTACLE IN HIS WAY
THE MAIN POINT BEING TO UNITE THE WHOLE NATION
HE IS A MAN OF RIDE
A BOOK OF VALUABLE CONTENT
BUT STILL CARRIES THE PRIDE OF THE NATION ON HIS SHOULDERS
BUT MOSTLY TO MAKE UNITY STAND

BORN TO LEAD....
BORN TO LEAD
