Still A Soldier

I lay here today a soldier
I know some don't understand
I will try to explain
So maybe you can

I served my country
For many a year
I retired long ago
The soldier still here

I put on my uniform
I wore it to foreign lands
The soldier I was
Is still in the man

I have been a husband, father, and friend
To some of you here
But I've been a soldier all along
Even after so many a year

My final salute
I render today
I'm still a soldier
I'm just on my way

Nice Day for a Funeral

Written by Gail DeBole
In memory of my grandfather

Nice Day For a Funeral I (You were always old. I can't remember a time when you were not.) Cried (And you had no past before the first time I became aware of your presence.) When (The weather huddled the mourners together. It was a cold day, but the sun was out to pay its respects, also.) They (I huddled with the rest. Echos of the service left a sad taste in my soul.) Lowered (The Rabbi had spoken of you like an old friend.) Your (And convinced me of your close lifelong brotherhood with him.) Casket.

A sad remembrance

I kiss her red honeyed lips
She allows the milk 
of my iniquity 
to wash over her
The pain of her sadness
washes away my cruelty
I leave my rifle at her feet

Beautiful Day

She comes along
Dressed in her golden flowing 
locks
Her skin adorned in pure white 
robe
She carries grace down to her 
feet
Her presence echoes rest in 
peace

She comes to me
Gently she whispers
My innerness shivers
Softly she kissed me
Her pure essence lingers
She brings to me  endless 
dance
I find the nerve to take her 
hand
Our path exudes serenity
Divine to all eternity 

She's beautiful in every way
Don't think of this as my last 
day
And when I'm gone, don't shed 
no tear
Though flesh my rot beneath 
my wreath
This angel held my soul at 
peace

Not another day


Impulsive or compulsive

Either way it's not conducive

Living with this disorder

Can't be good for my liver

Obsessions, when do they stop?

Compulsions, when do I stop?

Let me illustrate and reiterate

My demons make me infuriated

To the point, man, I really want to escape this

Live everyday like your last?

These hours go by fast

Trying to obliterate every ounce of the past

Always with the imagery and self coping insanity

That broke me and continues to break me.

Another day, no not another day

I just got out, please let me stay away.

Life's Jacket

In life you can wear a life jacket For this no one has to see It's not entirely for said waves But internally to you and me It's when you become immersed In depths that you'd never known Thrown against the waves of life When faltering to never have grown Imagine wearing that life jacket Looking out to translucent see How black it so quickly becomes We're no longer in the trees Our eyes are closed to the cold Incoherent we have now become When we were here we existed We've now become sunk as none .

Love for someone,

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?
The happiness you have received,
The realization of the world of sorrow.

Life has listened to me,
Why do you co-exit?
Love you all,
We all hate hatred.

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?


Everyone broken my heart,
Why do you do me love?
Why do you want us everything?
We have given everything to us only punishment.

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?
The happiness you have received,
The realization of the world of sorrow.

Sad Day

Sadness of the heart
when our loved ones do depart
to the promise land

A Lament For My Uncle, As His Day Approaches

Steel resolution, made a thousand times
To reach across black rift between closed hearts
Carefully constructed, a thousand lines
Rose incantation, enchanted restart

Dim hourglass of the blind excuse dancer
Clings desperately to its final grains
Dark wolf’s mouth slavers, he smells your cancer
Speak now, or forever we keep these pains

Knock on your door, thunderous echoes fade
Younger guilt and fear restrain me no more
Resolve not weakened, steady hand not stayed
Blade drains poison, flowing blood you ignore

One thing stands clear at your onrushing end:
It takes just one to break, but two to mend.

It Was An Ordinary Kind of Day


It was an ordinary kind of day,
You had left me to go to work
And drop off Denny at school

A factory klaxon was sounding
In the distance; and I pictured the 
Morning shift dragging the night's 
Dreams inside
Outside, the peach trees we had 
Just planted, bowed to each other, 
As though acknowledging their taste 

And then that picture on the mantelpiece
Brought night in to the breezy light room,
Tugging at my shirt collar like a debt 


But I turned away to the blue sky; and
The bowing peach trees asked why?

december day

December day

There are no words that we can say,
About the tragedy that happened on that December day.
When an elementary school came under attack
And all those little lives will never come back.

Our hearts cry out and eyes fill with tears,
For the parents who now have to face their worst fears.
Their child is gone taken away
On that tragic December day.

Innocent children from age’s five to ten,
What could they have possibly done to meet such a tragic end.
And to the teachers whose lives were also lost,
You protected the children and paid the ultimate cost.

Standing At The Mountain

Standing at The Mountain

There stood the great mountain—
A Sisyphean challenge;
A Job’s journey;
A deferred dream’s destiny;
Indeed, a Draconian feat.

But there also stood the dreaming King;
Tutored prodigy of the King of Kings;
With eyes stayed on the prize,
He smiled at death with God sent eyes.

Yes, the King is dead 
But we’re looking ahead!

We are the dream’s vision;
Our children—its reality;
Jacob’s ladder rises before us;
Let’s get to climbing!

“Only the dreamer dies…”

Undying Love

This fast life of mine is dying
All you see is my lifeless body lying
Scarcely heaving my last breath
I knew it was coming, soon my own death
I had one last chance to say my peace
So that my loneliness would cease
I got to say on my last breath
Don't fear my love I have finished my quest
It was for undying love
One day you will fly with me as a white dove
A dove stands for eternity and that's what it shall be
For the next time we meet we will see each other clearly
Goodbye for now don't shed a tear
For one day soon I will be near

DEATH ON A SPRING DAY

DEATH ON A SPRING DAY

Death on a spring day
Outside all is bright and clear
He feels none of it
He dreams of fond times
Love    the dream world puppeteer

The Day Dad Planned His Funeral

They said you needed surgery.
You said 'There's business I must do.'
I drove you to the funeral home.
The arrangements were for you.

I had to wait outside that day.
I couldn't go in there.
I don't know how you made those plans.
You showed how much you cared.

You knew you wouldn't make it.
You feared the end was near.
I hate what your life did to you.
I wish you were still here.

How do you plan your funeral? 
Were you as scared as I? 
What were your thoughts heading to the docs? 
Did you know that you would die? 

If I could turn back time and say
the things I'd like to say, 
I'd say 'I love you' and 'I'll miss you.'
'I wish that you could stay! '

SHOPPING DAY

Shopping day arrives and the shopper 
has in mind
A delicacy called veal she knows she 
will find 
It's in a nicely wrapped pack its contents 
pink
She'll cook it just right with some wine 
to drink
But there's a sad story behind that Plastic 
pack
A baby's calf's body not long ago was on 
a rack
He had cried and cried where did mama 
go
She had never left him alone like this before
Then they led him at last down that scary 
Green Mile
His legs were shaking and he tried hard not 
to defile
He heard the cries from the animals all around
He thought he heard mama as he fell dead on 
the ground

Halloween Moon

The Celtics called it "Samhain",
The day the Dead are seen.
The phases change their faces,
Like the moon on Halloween.

Just another day

How can today be just another day, 
I wake up and the sun hides behind dark gray, 
Clouds smother the sunlight, 
Seeming appropriate for the occasion.
But the day continues on as if nothing has happened. 
I see smiling laughing faces,
Their mockery is unbeknownst to themselves,
My pain is an invisible boundary, 
Separating my mind from my body. 
How could they know that on this very day,
The flowers in bloom died and wilted away.
The storm that is myself exploded in rage,
My fists pounded the earth for the first time that day. 
Rage and pain emanated like lightening splitting the sky,
I screamed and my soul tore in half - The day that you died.

Day of Grief

The sun shinning down
But all I see is grey
I see nothing
But a horrible, horrible day.

I saw you leave,
I saw the car rush away,
I heard it on the news,
This is what they say,

"A car wreck on seventy third,
The driver has flipped his lid"
This cannot be,
"He keeps yelling for Cassidy."

I knew that it was you,
The minute I heard my name
I knew that it was over,
Though that does sound pretty lame.

I knew that I had lost you
And I sat there crying
All the color drained from the world,
I thought that I was dying.

Your funeral was beautiful
Even jack cried,
I cant believe that you are gone,
I cant believe you died.

The End of The Day

Where do you stand
At the end of the day
When all that you are
Just slips away

Did you love enough
Help someone lost find their way
When there was quiet time 
Did you pray

Did you ever weep
For for the loss of a stranger
Or try to help someone
Regardless of the danger

Did you ask for forgiveness
When you hurt another
Or love a friend so much 
You called him brother

Did you give to your neighbors
Sacrifice for your nation
Give your soul to God
And seek salvation

When your time comes
And your soul slips away
While facing the Lord
What will you say

So, where do you stand
At the end of the day
When all that you are
Just slips away

My day

As the wind grew, and the clouds rolled in, the droplets of rain hit my page. I continued to write. Nothing was going to stop me. I, was going to finish. It started to rain harder. thunder cracked, and lightning flashed. Soon, my writing was smudged. As I continued to write, a thought came to mind. Was this the life I had wanted? Or was I just a puppet, in the hands of someone else? I had finished, and just in time. My world grew dark. I knew this was the end. I had written my will, as I knew this day had come. It was time for me to go, and leave it all behind. I, was done here.

Old Man

Sitting in a rocking chair
Staring out the window
The old man thinks quietly
Of all the people he used to know

He waits for someone that will see
And want to know his history
Cause from his window, the old man stares
For someone who knows him, and might even care

He thinks of the day when he will die
A few people will show, but no one will cry
People wonder who the old man is
But no one knows of the life he lives

He imagines all the things he would like to do
If he had a normal life like me and you
But every day he stays at home
Tired, weak and all alone

You're tall and cute but not arrogant

But for now, it's your birthday let's celebrate

Happy birthday dear, i hope this makes your day.

One day

Playing with guns in the face of innocence,
Letting go of the trigger while hoping to live again.

Black tears from a corpse that has come back to life,
Because it’s already been written that you will survive.

To powerful you are, with the thoughts that you have,
You’ve been taken away, but one day you’ll come back.

Then from your mind you can now choose to act
with changing the future by fixing the past.

Make up for time lost by time learned from your trials,
To move mountains inches, then yards, and then miles.

Forgiven you are and ever so missed.

So turn back to your destiny,
And change hell into bliss.

Bell's Blues (Conclusion)

     Today, I had a chance to ask his widow, Laurie, about this story.  She 
confirmed that it did happen, and he came home from work that day excited, and 
told her and their 3 daughters about the event.
     And sure enough, shortly thereafter, the song became a hit on the radio, and 
M.T.V., in those ancient days when they actually played music.
     This news brightened my day considerably, and I'm happy to share it with you; 
so when you next hear that song, remember my good buddy, Mark Trotiner, the 
uncredited genius behind it.
