Appalachian Homecoming

You were born here,
Blue Ridge foothills, spirits of Cherokee in
Appalachia's olden heart and veins,
Scots-Irish influence of beloved bluegrass,
moonshine of the drinking kind,
your grandmother's white farmhouse,
she fried okra better than anyone,
grew an acre of tobacco,
and loved the Lord.

Your childhood wasn't blessed,
you had to leave in your youth,
to another southern state of beauty,
where we met, we wed, weren't wealthy,
yet, our daughter is our glory,
son-in-law, and grandchildren gifts
she gave us,
we returned to your birthplace
years ago, 
then you passed, not quite elderly,
Appalachian homecoming,
as banjos and dulcimers play softly.

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.

At the Beach with Elizabeth

I wish my granddaughter paper dolls:
"Princess Elizabeth and Margaret Rose,"
circa 1940s.  I wish her pick-up sticks
of rainbow colors, or a rubber ball,
Say, and its metallic jacks.  I

wish her a Monopoly board, lots
of property---rows of dominoes
as black as the hearts 
of those bad boys who ran away.  "I wish, 
I wish, with all my heart," says E.

with wave of good witch 
Glinda's starry wand, while I ask 
Bring Elizabeth back 
that heartless pack who 
would not let her play.

You're Not Alone

Your heart is in shambles
You cry, but still can't shake the pain
But I am in a better place now
For, I had so much more to gain.

As I entered the pearly gates of heaven
And walk the streets of gold
I am now with our savior
And I know my story has been told.

I am watching over you, Granddaughter
No more suffering for me
My heart is with you all
And my soul has been set free.

Our memories will last forever
Now don't you fret nor' cry
Again, someday we will be hand in hand
Then together we will fly.

These Little Eyes

I watched her
dropping the phone,
in nano movements

My heart stomped
out, the harshness
of a dial tone

And from endless 
holes, these little eyes
scrunched with sadness

I suppose, I didn't know
what it meant to die
or why the tears
stuck to me

Sickle celled with
every memory,
around the lobes
of my being

Where I could
still hear you laugh,
the breaths of air

Grew arms 

-- and comforted me.

Final Adieu

Final Adieu

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

Grandparent At Last

Grandparent At Last

My granddaughters,
Aira'lee Nadean Jones,
Hope Faith Darnell 
Adelina Gracie Darnell
R.I.P. "Gracie"

Grandparents old of grandparents new, 
the unique joy that you are bringing proper.

Fairy tale's told in the rosy past, 
my first granddaughters are here at last. 

Fishing trips and ice cream cones, 
lullaby songs until we doze. 

Stories told upon cozy laps, 
sunny walks on shaded paths. 

Butterfly kisses and big bear hugs, 
truly grandparents is another word for love.

My sunshine

You are my sunshine
my only sunshine.
She would sing every morning, as she would clean.
You make me happy
 when skies are grey. 
Her voice was like an angel.
She sung so beautifully. 
You will never know dear, how much we love you.

It's ok maw maw, you can let go now, 
I understand.
You don't have to stay and suffer anymore. 
Close your eyes, I'll hold your hand.

She then took her last breath, I knew she couldn't stay.
God why did cancer, have to take my sunshine away.?

I have two grandchildren whom I've not seen
In a period nearing three years
I look at their pictures every day
And it reduces me to tears

Their mother and father flatly refuse 
Any contact with them at all
Since the untimely death of my wife
Not even a card or a call

No explanation has been given
I simply do not know why
Life hardly seems worth living
And every day, I cry

But the God that I serve has stated
Forgive them seventy times seven
So this I've done as He has said
And we'll be reunited in Heaven

Smokey Hugs

When I was young 
You would pull out a cigarette
And oh how that smoke stung
But you pulled me close when we had met 
And I know how your heart sung 

For I was a granddaughter so contrary to you 
Lacking the rough and stern exterior, the one you always wore
A flower through and through
Your hugs, they hurt so away I tore, down the hall and out the door

But when you passed
I couldn't believe
How my heart smashed 
And how much I regretted the hugs I insisted to leave

But now I look back and remember the way I hugged you back
And I'm happy knowing about the times, you threw me over your shoulder, Like a potato sack.

Maia 2018

Maia, you're a big girl now,
I miss our hide and seek,
I miss our summer bike rides,
Your life has just begun
While my life's about to end,
Maia, oooh!
If I'm not back this time tomorrow,
Live your life, live your life,
Live your life to the fullest.

Maia, my time has come,
I'm getting very old,
I'm aching all the time,
Goodbye, everybody,
I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind,
Maia, oooh!
I don't want to die
But that's what life's about,
Goodbye for now, goodbye for one,
Live your life to the fullest...

My grandad

One day you dropped down dead,
Your heart stopped,
Dad says " you were the apple of his eye",
I wish I had known you,
My grandad,

Grandma never remarried,
You where her one true love,
You couldn't be replaced,
I often think of you,
Wondering what we would have done
My grandad,

Your together again these many years,
My grandma and grandad,
I love you both.
