What Awaits-TET

A Taste
In This Life
Of What Awaits
Streams of Consciousness Slowly Leaving Earth

Returning Whence We Came -- To Our Maker
Our Primal Source
Of Life and
Of Love

No one knows what to do
But to stare and be rude
When a child of four is old

They just stand there and stare
Without any care
And the child suffers the stranger’s cold

And Life may not seem fair
When a girl has no hair
Like I said, she’s only four

But she takes it in stride
And has nothing to hide
It is the stranger that is poor

So no matter the eyes
That continually spy
Into her daily play

She is the purest gold
For me to hold
And I’ll love her everyday!

Life and Death

eyes blinked
then fluttered
She was awake
We rushed over weeping tears of relief

Another family passed in the hall
Huddled as one
we noticed
they wept

Blood red
I placed it
On your gravestone
As a symbol of my undying love

You departed this life far too early
I’m all alone
In the world
I miss

Weep For the Innocent

for the
ones who were slain
in the name of hate. Weep for the children
left fatherless, the spouse left without a
mate, a parent
whose child is
no more.
for this
country and
pray that we come
together, without prejudice, to heal.

First Funeral for a Five Year Old

close my

one’s body gone
into the inner sanctum of the ground.
Gone, gone forever into paradise.
are you joking
I’m asking,

Should have
Known the price
I'd have to pay
After the second time I loved you broke
My weary, stone heart into rough pieces; 
That should I love
You once more;

My Dear Friend You Are Not Forgotten

dear friend
today I
received letter
from your mom and dad
stated that killed while serving
seems like only yesterday
were cruising on our 4 wheelers
I shall honor thy name displaying
flag and medal of valor on mantel

Bleaks Abyss

endless strife
to where, darkness
consumed by an abyss so delightful

I now fall, in entering, smiling I
appease echoes

Tears and rain, sit upon my eyelashes. One shows my pain, one washes it away. The grey clouds are one with my breaking heart. Shedding their pain in tune with my souls cry To accept that Grandma is leaving me, is easier to say than to live through. Each slowing beat of her heart pierces me. My second mom, my best friend, dying now. Her grace and wisdom will stay with me still. I am, today, the woman she molded. Touching so many, giving of herself. Angel on earth, soon to be going home.

Into The Light

Into the Light So, is there nothingness when life is done? Black void like the universe beyond stars? Darkness above and beyond darkest dark? Vast worthlessness, end of ends; no more us? No, deeper we must thrust past blackest black into God's light...and everlasting life. Sandra M.
