Life Memories

                                  we have loved deeply

                           in tears we cling – death . . .  here

                                   love memories now

For those who have loved and lost – we will never forget!

Prison Of Memories

The past always returns to haunt us Old debts demand to be paid The very best hand Of many a man Stays un known And remains unplayed Some men wish to be In alliance with Angels But alas, e’en more opt To owe a debt of allegiance To the dark… And deep within those sad souls Lie haunted black holes Absent of light Not e’en a scintilla nor spark They yearn to return To a world once spurned… But once the die is cast The past holds fast And Fate and Karma decrees… For lack of their wisdom They be trapped in a prison A prison made of …memories…

Let Our Memories Be The Bridge

(Written for my dear friend Mike Guest NZ)
(an Eulogy from afar)

For those of you that gather this day
With individual memories to savour
Use them all to build a busy highway
A bridge to cross with words of favour.
While across the miles with love that remains strong
Knowing your book of life now can be signed
We’ll remember the words of the song
You’ll always be on my mind.

Night Of Memories

Asleep in my cabin as we crossed the ocean
Woke up with a start to a sound like big thunder
All around me now was just noisy commotion
An iceberg we’d hit that was tearing us asunder.

I have survivor’s guilt suffer nightmarish dreams
See widespread panic hear the sounds of loud screams
I would love to forget that night of memories
To do so would somehow dishonour the deceased.

Cherished Memories

I cherish every moment
I spend with you today.

I cherish every memory
You have given along the way.

I cherish every story
Even the ones you shouldn’t say.

I cherish every tear you cry
As you remember the good ole days.

I cherish every step you take
As you stumble and make your way.

I cherish every sacrifice
You’ve made for us today.

And when God says your time is up
And in heaven you will stay

I’ll remember all these moments,
I’ll remember every day.

I’ll remember all the stories,
I’ll remember what you say.

I’ll remember what you sacrificed,
To be with us today.

Elegiac Memories of Dear Mother

Dear Mother—I longed for your love:
     so when you passed away I wept;
as your spirit rose up above
     my stinging tears, which were inept,
flowed as we began to remove
     your cold, silent corpse as it slept—.

Days passed—they gathered for your wake,  
     a soothing time that was not sad
or grave as they tried for my sake 
     to pay their respects and act glad:
as you laid there (to never take
     a breath again), I could’ve gone mad! 

The hour arrived—the funeral 
     took place on a cold, wintry morn
as if dream-like, strange and surreal.
     Distraught, I felt bereaved and torn
as the last rites and burial
     left me forlorn—oh so forlorn!

Life quickly passes us by
We reflect where  memories lie
Good and bad times  come and go
Like summer rain and fleeting snow.
As years grow old memories fade
New ones are born and old ones laid
Passing of time is like the blink of an eye
In heart and mind fond memories lie.
Season will come and seasons  go
Like the summer rain and  fleeting snow
 The memories will never fade
We only cherish  memories made.

Tipsy, we were together
Happiness, we lived together
By the malls hands we held
Love unsaid you led
In truth, I knew we were friends
When first our roads so met
That no fiend will do us part
In love, in trust and happiness
Living to love, our betterment
Pains, joy in togetherness
Until the day you pressed the pause
Like a woman in sudden menopause
When medic in sorrow announcement
Alone now I sing, mimicry of your song  
But today this dirge I sang
Because your mouth stopped to sing

Dusty Memories

amidst my walls
a discolored rose
a wedding photo
a collection of memories
a discolored rose
a moment of mourning
as fragile as life
a wedding photo
of lovers once parted
united in the beyond
a collection of memories
coalesce together
a collage of juncture
 i found this form online and wanted to experiment with it...

memories of spring

After the lilacs have gone by,
before golden flowers bloom
we will walk through meadows
soft and blue 
and feast on bread with honey 
stolen from autumn bees 
still drunk in love with sunflowers.

After the lilacs have gone by,
before red poppies dance,
as we wake in meadows
soft with dew
you will kiss my honeyed lips
and we will walk through springs
still drunk in love with bluebells.

After the lilacs have gone by,
before brown leaves of autumn
as we remember meadows
green and new
sweet dreams will flow like honey
from a sunflower child 
with eyes the shade of bluebells

Bitter sweet memories

I wake up in a cold sweat
I can't catch my breath
I think back to when we met
My lungs collapse like death

My mind thinks of you as lost
My heart still endlessly searches
Without you i'm cold as frost
I accept you're gone and my heart lurches

The tears start to stream from my eye
I look at the pictures i have of you
The memory of your smile makes me want to die
I scream "oh please god don't let it be true"

The bitter sweet memories are all i hold
So tainted since you passed on
Your lovely words haunt my very soul
I load the gun; how could i ever go on

Memories Beyond The Door

Now it's flooding back to me
(Somebody close that door!)
I'm fading into misery
That I've already gone through before
Why did I fall, why does it hurt
Why am I scared to simply love?
My heart is shattered, my heart- it hurts
Even praying to God above
I can't run from all these memories
(Somebody close that door!)
I'm dying here, please let me out
My pains are on the floor
Nobody really understands 
and I feel that I'm always alone
Won't somebody pick me up softly
and carry me back to my home?
Silence here, it's killing me, 
But no silence in my head anymore
I understand I'm worthless, so please
Somebody close that door.

Memories of a stolen life

As I travel down the road I see memories of someone's loved one that has passed away. A weathered wodden cross stands as a reminder of a stolen life. It could be someone like me, or someone like you. I hope you see we are all not invincable, not even me.

My thoughts brown
Even though they’ve watered through a period
Of bloom
A period of greens
Not until when the final byes were said.
In my sofa I seek answers
 Taking a cursory sweep down memory lane
When we sat laughed, danced and drank
Today all is but history
Save for the large frame on the wall
Telling me that you are very much with me.
In it I see your smiles,
Your feminine gait
So full of live
This is what keeps me alive
You will always remain part of my world.

Memories of my dead aunt

One of the nicest things in our lives will be our memories of you.
You have always been one of those relatives we could count on.
With you we could of shared our worries and tears.
You were one of those who was always willing to listen.
You were someone special.

There are many relatives in our lives
But only a very few leave a lasting impression.
It's these relatives we think of often
So much of what we have become is because of you.
You taught us the importance of family
Thank you for being the world's greatest aunt.

Good Memories Never Die

(In Memory of Lamar "L-Boogie" Featherston)

I'll never forget how you looked Me,
dead in the eye
As you, downhill on a motorbike, from
82nd did fly
Now, are We of any Physical trace of
you shy
And, I can't help but to keep wondering
On that fateful day of November 4th, you
had to die
When in the back of My mind, the answer
to that, did lie
Still, it does it No justice, your going to be
with the Lord, in the sky
Especially, if I can't let it go, No matter how
hard I try
Much like your Mother, crying tears to make
a well run dry
From the shock of losing you, and Not being
able to say: "goodbye"

Memories Remain

Photographs are taken away

Memories of a lifetime are forgotten

Dust has been scattered over all the fingerprints

Dishes packed away

Telephones are no longer ringing

Clothes still unused

Records are no longer playing

Blood still remains on the carpet

No more sunshine

No laughter

Just the haunting silence

The dead still appear in the darkness of the corners

The clock rings that same old lullaby

Its too late to say goodbye

But not too late to make up with the ghosts

A cold dark past
A Chill chilled Dawn
An empty vessel full of bitterness
A lonely heart that can't fill up!

Such Is Life,  Is it? 
So,  what can be done ahead? 
What is it really to be filled?
An empty space,  a broken piece! 

A great hollow spot!  An empty gaze.... 
Don't wanna recall!
Don't wanna recapitulate! 
Don't wanna recall all! 

A forgetful past
A bitter one! 
Memory gone
Memory lost!

Childhood Memories

My life is a party to celebrate.
My wish list, I want to elaborate.
To be happy and always glad.
To be with you, to be my dyad.

My life is a party to celebrate.
My sorrow, I want to eradicate.
To stop worrying about something.
To stop dying on thinking.

My life is a party to celebrate.
You is the only one I don't want to be separated.
To be together.
To be with forever.

My life is a party to celebrate.
My own, I have to evaporate.
To make you happy.
Attend my coffee party.

Fond Memories

The lights that blinds the moth at dusk
Is like the elephant’s white tusk,
Which charms the eye but robs the purse:
A gentle animal’s great curse. 

Alike, when love by time is borne
Within a mind to duty sworn, 
Fond memories the heart enslave
And both are carried to the grave.

Left With Only Memories

Goodbyes are never
They break your
heart in two.
Left with only
precious memories,
Of the life we
shared with you.

Pictures in an
Or hanging in a
Capture that
contagious smile,
But it will never be
the same.

They can't bring
back you laughter.
Or show how big your
heart could be.
At least your with
our angels now.
Give them all a hug
for me.

Bitter-Sweet Memories

Beneath the snow, sharp thorns grow on your tomb;
Reminders of the rose, that there once bloomed.

Memories Of Youth

Musing for memories
Etched in back of mind
Mom I remember
Overbearing news
Reguarding brothers drowning
Inquiry stated caused by flashbacks from meth and herion
Eleven and didn't quite still understand 
So I just prayed to God to forgive his lost soul

Memories Was My Topic
