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.
absence, death, depression, devotion, grandparents, grief, heartbreak,
As he sat and pondered.
His memories remained,
As his mind always wandered.
His aching heart,
He could not show.
His thoughts went to her,
His pain would grow.
The silence grew,
As the long days went by.
He turned to see,
She was drawing him nigh.
He stood, he stretched,
Gave one big yawn.
His time, he knew,
Had come by dawn.
Together in Heaven,
They shall forever remain.
No longer to be,
In insurmountable pain.
By Marty Gail Morris
This poem is dedicated to my grandfather. In heaven now with my grandmother. I loved them both dearly.

(about the two wars)
I gave my life for you,
My grit was your prosperity,
So that you could do.
I swallowed at the task,
Girded myself bravely,
Prepared to have a mask.
When self-awareness engulfed,
And loneliness overcame,
Determination was loved.
I fought a man every time,
I faced the thwarting enemy,
No easy game of mine.
I strove to either succeed,
Or to sacrifice my everything,
But the opposition to impede.
I thought of family and you,
Freedom and liberty,
And the rightness of the two.

absence, cry, death, funeral, grandparents,
With his back lying on a torn mat
Consuming the thoughts of tomorrow
Gazing at its fruit
Heavy was the mind to lift
His heart burned in sorrow
Darkness took over the light
How it would be for the tender souls?
How they wished to remove the yoke
Orphanage was not a joke
So interesting were the nights
The nights of folktales
Tears we could shade in dreams
The sober minds conquered
conquered with complicated dreams
A hard morning to believe
With a darkest shadow
What a sorrow departure he had
Never to return
death, family, father, grandparents, loss, missing, mother,
Nothing in me is Her
Yet everything in me is Of Her
Nothing in me is Him
Yet everything in me is Of Him
Nothing in me is Them
Yet everything in me is Of Them
They are all gone now
I miss them.
absence, anniversary, death, grandparents, psychological, remember, tribute,
I can complain,
And all day talk of,
People in distress.
I can also walk away,
Away with my ego and pride,
And all day boast of,
People I have helped abstain,
From suicide and from pain,
Unfortunate I am that I lost,
A friend, a darling, my best,
My teddy, my only one, my right hand,
Unfortunate I am that my tears dried,
After the many years for you I cried.
As of today grandma,
I want to smile and pray for you grandma,
Sing for you songs you sang me grandma,
I want people to know,
That you're still alive grandma,
And drinking from the rivers of paradise,
And smiling back at my happy face,
Saying that that's my baby, my grace.

angel, bereavement, dream, family, feelings, grandparents, poems, poetry, spiritual,
I dreamt you
in golden threads of sunlight;
streaming, dancing, mingling with
dreamt you calling,
singing out my name in your regal orcan tongue...
dreamt you in each face that peered
from liquid silver seas...
dreamt your body's etheric touch
amidst cool tranquil waters...
dreamt our souls as one;
bound together; two spirit dreamers...
dream you now a foggy memory
since the whalers came...
but, as all dreams do;
you too soon…fade.
I awaken from this abysmal, astral realm…
reaching, stretching for your spirit.
Alone again, I will touch you again…
in another time.
abuse, addiction, bereavement, grandfather, grandparents, grief, i miss you,
I will mourn for you today,
and ache for the comfort
of when I used to lay my head
across that Buddha belly of yours,
and you used to sing me
your drunken lullabies
(though I knew no difference
at the time).
And I will listen
to this song:
mariachis' high-pitched gritos
accompanying the blaring
brass-tasting trumpet players.
This time, when I see you
dancing to it, sombrero atop
your silver strands,
you won't reek
of that amber-colored
august, bereavement, blessing, death, grandparents, journey, thank you,
T'was the saddest time of the year
When one is resting, one oh so dear
Yearning for the presence that once was there
Reminiscing that white silky hair
But time will pass and time will heal
The heartaches and the pain we feel
Though none ever help but wonder
Where he journeyed in that deep slumber
The thrill, excitement and adventurous ride
In crossing that great divide
Then death would be a blessing
To whose heart is strong
The day the sunset mourns a mirthful song
death, grandparents, love, marriage, missing,
"Till Death Do Us Part" - long ago both of us said,
And never lied, since you're right by my death bed.
As always, I am letting out a laugh in the end,
While you are crying and holding my hand.
Throughout all our lifes, to you, I never lied,
And our Love, named Eternal, has never died.
Some people think that Love eventually fades,
But we proved them wrong through many decades.
The chorus starts singing my farewell song...
Don't worry, my dear, nothing is wrong.
Yes, we may be now in different worlds,
But my Love for you still eternally holds.
beautiful, bereavement, family, grandparents, happy, i miss you,
came from smoky bars missing grandmother’s riddles laughing little dog
grandparents, grave, grief, longing, lost love, love,
I kneel before her.
Met her when I turned age six.
May her poor soul rest.
dark, death, deep, grandfather, grandparents, growing up, life,
When that old tree fell on the ground,
along fell all the buds and pretty flowers
all that was green and glooming,
everything that the roots held together.
All that is left now
are broken twigs,
and decaying leaves
dispersed all over the ground
being abducted by the wind.
And the whole universe mourns
the home That once was.
age, bereavement, grandparents, grave, grief, heartbreak,
The old man's khaki shorts
Still hangs on a string fastened
to the back of his rocking chair
On the veranda
As the wind blows
The chair rocks noiselessly
I remember poignantly
As the hour drew near
He wore his khaki shorts
Sat on the rocking chair
Like one counting the clouds
Lord, is it it?
Receive my poor soul,
christian, grandchild, grandparents, grief, heaven, memory, missing you,
I know you still sad and heartbroken,
but these words is my appreciation token.
You loved me in your own special way
Unconditional love, I received everyday
Your visits to my grave I find pleasant, "but Oupa why so early in the morning?"
and Ouma "why when its so windy and storming?"
I know I was the apple of your eye
Your sunshine, your rainbow in the cloudy sky
I am sorry that I left so soon, but I had no choice,
I was called home by our Heavenly Father's voice,
Go on without me, live life without this weight
And know that I will wait for you at Heaven's east gate.
celebration, grandfather, grandparents, grief, hero, i miss you, longing,
My hero is gone now,
He was a real man,
among real men.
They walked tall,
in his time.
They took no guff,
spit, and shook your hand.
each, and every “one”,
chiseled in stone,
carved in ivory
and counted as gold.
12th grade, angel, bible, confusion, gospel, grandparents, grave,
Crows eyes and acorn feet,
What will I look like,
When I get old?
When will that be?
High (School) on something they call life,
College a scam,
Family, a fan,
When will I be old enough…
To know I am old enough…
To not have to ask.
death, grandparents, miss you, pain,
You were the rock
Of the family
You held us together
And kept us strong
You were like a lion
When you roared
An stood at attention
That’s how powerful
But father time
Begin to chip away
At the rock
Who begins to crack
Into small pieces
Chipping and chipping
Away at you until
You turn into dust
That flew away with
My Cinderella died back in the sixties
When I realized that there is no glass slipper
And no fairy godmother
Faerie Tales are make believe
And not powerful or worthwhile
after you are ten or so and experience pain and grief
Sorrow came into my life when I was twelve
My soul was hurting powerfully
Because my grandmother died.
She was amazing, sweet, and had a loving way
Everything she did was loving
I picked up the tiny glass slipper out of her jewelry box
And recognized it as a piece of her
It was a prism with a soul
And it made the world
of hurt feel
