angel, death, faith, forgiveness, heaven, hope, spiritual,
In shadow 'neath the shining of a soul
a heart trembles
for her lost
trespass and sin
as flight with Mercy’s angel does begin.

childhood, friendship, health, life, sympathy, uplifting, child,
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!
She was awake
We rushed over weeping tears of relief
Another family passed in the hall
Huddled as one
america, bereavement, death, prejudice,
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
pray that we come
together, without prejudice, to heal.
For Eve Roper's Triple Tectractys contest
death, heartbroken, i miss you,
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

one’s body gone
into the inner sanctum of the ground.
Gone, gone forever into paradise.

can’t cry enough
death seems too close to mend a broken soul
life seems too far to reach your pure essence
can’t die enough
and crave your touch
death seems too final and life seems too long

One shows my pain, one washes it away.
The grey clouds are one with my breaking heart.
Shedding their pain

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,
stay with me still.
I am, today, the woman she molded.
Touching so many, giving of herself.
Angel on earth,

death, heaven, life, universe,
Into the Light
when life is done?
Black void like the universe beyond stars?
Darkness above and beyond darkest dark?
end of ends;
we must thrust
past blackest black
into God's light...and everlasting life.

Death's bittersweet kiss has released your soul
and stopped your pain

for I miss
your smile, your laugh,
though it's comforting to know you're pain-free.

far too soon.
I wanted years
to hold your hand in mine still warm and strong.
Doctors told me there was no hope for mom
to let her go,
to stop care.
