It broke her heart
when Franco died
he’d been her soul mate
wed over fifty years
he’d been her life

For her Franco
she had a ritual
lit a candle every night
so he would know
how much she missed him

Today would be a special day
she felt it when she closed her eyes
wouldn’t be lighting any candle
she took her one last deep breath
set down the path to join her Franco

Young Ellen Hanley caught John Scanlon’s eye
He was determined that she’d be his wife
Their marriage was cursed and Ellen would die
On the River Shannon she lost her life.

She was a beauty but of lower class
He belonged to a wealthy family
A few weeks later grew tired of the lass
She was found in Shannon’s estuary.

His servant killed Ellen a girl so young
And from a boat threw her over the side
Both men found guilty and from gallows hung
Her dead body washed ashore with the tide.

In Clare there stands a memorial stone
The Colleen Bawn she is now better known.

The beginning and the end

                   First steps
                   Growing up
               Marriage and kids

                      Roll by
               Great grandchildren

My Love

My love I can not find you anywhere, 
I feel like I lost my soul somewhere, 
because you are my soulmate, 
and us being apart can not be fate. 

You did not leave because you wanted to, 
It just was just something you had to do. 

I was not right, All I wanted to do was fight, 
and knowing you was the love of my life, 
yet I would not make you my wife. 

I know that's what you really wanted 
and now I am feeling haunted, 
by the things I should have done, 
and you being the only one 
I ever loved and will love forever, if it was'nt for me we will still be together. 
But you are gone 
and I can not go on, 
so I must say good-bye, I'm leaving myself to die.

Dreams Of Reality

Dreams Of Reality
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears

A difference of a world a way
A distance of a different kind
Love is blind and divine
Hold my hand
Let us touch the sunshine
On this hill of heaven we stand 
I pray

From one another 
Life and the world will never take us
Unless it’s together
Then we will become forever
Never leaving each others presence
Our bond becomes stronger in living
With every day
I stare into your glare
Wishing we live on; and long 
Strong and healthy 
We will grow old
In a happy union together
Looking beside me
Coming to a reality
You’re not there
My dreams are not reality 
My love has perished.

Lady In Red

The Lady in red
awaits my arrival
 The Lady in red
lays and waits
The Lady in red 
never-more so beautiful
The Lady in red
Who is my newly wed
The Lady whose white dress covered in Red
is no more

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

Commitment till Death Cause The Part

Signed to dwell in a comfortable locked cage where smoke also comes out from ice; moving gradually, taking it page by page, nurture the hunger then you can eat even half cooked rice. It’s like bad costumes but in a beautiful stage or a boring occasion, well attended by funny guys. In comfort, in difficulty, in ecstasy and in rage, on each others skin, seldom disturbing as lice. A year, then some decades and the union is coming of age, but the flavor still remains, due to the preservation of its spice.

I am still me
but you are not you
things are different
what can I do

you look the same
as yesterday
but something happened
along lifes way

no conversation
you don't seem to care
if I am with you
or out somewhere

for hours on end
you sit and stare
the tv's your friend
the perfect pair

Woeful vows

"Till death us do part"
Thus I stepped upon a trap;
Oh, Why I said that?
Now I wail to no avail,
Oh, my life is in shambles!

Forty Lost

Time moves on,
and soon will tell,
when asked for whom
they ring the bell…
 Forty lived
…and forty lost,
you left before twilight.
When it’s half as much,
at twice the cost,
you’ll  bask
in perfect light…
We live in castles
…made of sand,
we come as a stranger,
but leave as a friend…
Remember now,
your last first kiss,
those times will be
profoundly missed…
Your smile indeed
could cast a spell.
You learned to
play a bad hand well…
With all our hopes
and dreams in tow,
we are old too quick,
and wise too slow.
Life’s an elaborate
complex dance...
Would you live again,
if you had the chance?

i remember love

i remember the dark night sky filled with small orbs of light.
i remember a second sun rising in the hushed ashes of the night.
i remember the haunting echos of a lonesome a song of beauty.  
and your voice bouncing  with laughter and joy.
i remember smell of the climbing, wild ivy.
i remember soft gazes at the dancing lake.
i remember your hand gently placed in mine, warm and soft. 
even now that you are not here with me or with any one,
i will remember your love, in my heart forever.
 in this life time, any life time.

Till death do us part

You close your eyes
While roughly breathing with sighs
You Touch the forehead 
While tears moist your plead

Your day is ending 
As pain you are enduring

Uncontrolled pain
We are descendants of Cain
Tomorrow will also pass in vain

I cannot touch you
But I want to hold you
I can give you no help
But remind you of our only hope

Irritation and distress
You deserve to express
Anger and disappointment
I accept as my commitment
I respect you from my heart
Till death do us part

The Affair

A warm embrace
And a lingering touch.
Skin meets skin.
The rustling of sheets,
Fingers tangled in hair.
His lips against mine,
My lover and I.

The slam of a door 
And my heart sinks.
Red of passion turns to red of rage.
Angry screams.
Drunk words.
A taste of copper on my tongue,
White sheets stained crimson

I look,
My own glassy eyes stare back.
You move on, you forget.
I watch, I wait.
I can never leave,
Never touch,
Never breathe.
Silent screams echo,
Cherished memories tinged with red.
I watch, I wait.

Know that the cross you clutch so often
Will do you no good.
I'm watching, I'm waiting.

Behind Closed Doors

Heart of Gold,
calming tides
holding on, hands intertwined.

The ironman
so bold, so brave.
An injured deer
step forth to save.

No echoing groans.
No sorrowing pleas.
Hard to see what lies beneath.

There are storms and guilt, rejection, betrayal
gnawing and snapping at his core.
But doesn't let a single salty drip ever hit the floor.

This is where he hides,
Behind Closed Doors.

Why my heart ponder

Why my heart ponder?
I, your offender..
What I gave?
Dark love in a cave...

I promised you a thousand lands
Didn't give enough sands...
Changing me and my love,
Hiding behind the black scarf..

Hiding me I couldn't speak,
Feared losing in a streak.
This was my only reason
But turned my passing season..

Now I rattle,

As a foolish cattle
Leaving your land and cheese,
Yet to find me some peace...

When death do us part

If I go first
Don’t weep and reel
or let sorrow fill you.
Keep your tears.
place my picture on the mantel,
remember summers in the sun,
and smile.
Though I won’t see it
it’s comforting to me now
to know you’ll remember me
with joy.

If you go first
I will not cry.
I’ll be dry and dusty. 
like a forgotten room
in winter
I’ll keep your photograph
on the pillow
where your sleeping head should be
And dream of when
we were young and smooth
and love was all we knew.

Til Death Do Us Part

Feeling the breeze of your breath caressing me. 
I stand at attention of your every need. 
All that I yearn is to be your desire, 
trapped inside of ecstasy. 
Wanting and needing you to be a part of me, 
no sense of time or place. 
My only purpose at this time and space, 
is to for fill every thrill that you crave 
Until we part to our grave

A Silent Wedding

Marriage is a funeral with music,
And death is a silent wedding,
Divorce is a sad journey,
With a one way ticket and no return,
Beauty ages with time,
And becomes ugly,
Body flesh loosens,
Dies and rottens,
But voice comes from a soul,
And this is rightly eternal,
So live by decree and endorse it
On this parchment, and leave
Something behind,
That one day, 
One will remember you,
When your words, voice is mentioned.

'Till death us do part

It's easy to kill
a relationship.
-don't talk!

It's easy to kill a relationship.
-Don't walk 

Scan the grass on  the other side.
It's always greener
-from a distance!
Choose separate paths.
Travel alone
or build a home
away from home.

Don't give!
Stand on your right!
Paint a black picture.
a reputation. 
Tear your own house down.

It's easy to kill a relationship
and sometimes.....
it's just as easy
to build it!

In a hotel room

Eons ago, in a hotel room, I came face to face with doom! Danger did loom There in that dark room! A ghoul seated on a broom Appeared in the bedroom And sprinkled some gloom On my soul, so in need of a bloom! Ready to be my bridegroom Our union to be proclaimed in the ballroom He called out to the groom To have a festive lunchroom! When I found strength to be a boom I called out with my heart's zoom And my Lord removed my gloom By dissipating my cursed brume! Eons ago, in a hotel room I begot a boon, and a re-gloom And my soul began to re-groom For at last, I had found my real room!

Notary Unnoticed

I see

But is it 
as if
the first time
we hadn't
made love

Or perhaps
in love
and not
out of 


between us

if they had went through 
every minute of what 
conceived my wisdom, 
they’d all be running 
back to mommy. 

if she knew there was a 
reason why I kept my 
mouth shut, she’d know 
what she went through was 
normal for the life she 
was placed in and chose 
to remain confused in. 

confusion can !@#$ up 
everything… she knows. 

wisdom can change it all… 
I show. 

does the bee in the car 
fight for it’s freedom 
move about hysterically 
enticing you to roll the 
window down in hopes 
you’ll cool off? 

the days pass, 
I stand my ground. 

they did this to me, 
I hold my ground. 

…did this to me.

Defibrillator, I have to set..
Cardiac monitor, I need to attached..
Intravenous lines, workingly patent..
Emergency drugs, positioned on standby...

His color turning to pale then bluish..
His breathing starts to become shallow..
His limbs become to loose and cold..
His pulse thready and weak..

On high alert!
On high alert!
Is it the end of his life?
Or is already the beginning of his death?

Poem Details | by Ann Foster |

At dinner the other night, 
mom fixed our favorite. 
She baked them, 
broiled them, 
cut them up,
 and fried them nice. 

She told us,
this was the story of life, 
all through dinner. 
as we sat and ate, 
and laughed and cried. 

At the end, 
we found we were;
and made;
to feel like everything had…

It was not what was on the plate, 
or even what was missing. 
but that she made what she had, 
with all she had, 
and gave it willingly…
to those she loved.
