death, loss, sad,
In Arras field he watched that day
A flash of light against the grey,
High explosives whistled all around
And fallen thousands filled the ground.
Kentish man against the wall,
He had defended to the last;
A fleeting life--
So briefly did it pass.
One of the Lost generation of World War ONE 1918
conflict, death, family, grief,
Steel resolution, made a thousand times
To reach across black rift between closed hearts
Carefully constructed, a thousand lines
Rose incantation, enchanted restart
Dim hourglass of the blind excuse dancer
Clings desperately to its final grains
Dark wolf’s mouth slavers, he smells your cancer
Speak now, or forever we keep these pains
Knock on your door, thunderous echoes fade
Younger guilt and fear restrain me no more
Resolve not weakened, steady hand not stayed
Blade drains poison, flowing blood you ignore
One thing stands clear at your onrushing end:
It takes just one to break, but two to mend.
He lies in peace beneath this tree
where death by shock came suddenly.
That thunderbolt struck Uncle Tom-
he faced the storm before the calm.

death, eulogy, family,
My uncle died today
I don't know what to say
He was my fave.
Full of vim and vigor
Didn't need gun and a trigger
To have his say.
But ain't the best of us
Flawed in some way?
I'll miss Abbott.
Has been my habit
To love him every single day.
bereavement, death, dedication, loss, obituary, remember, sorrow,
I remember your smile that twinkle in your eye,
you could make us laugh until we would cry.
Fishing and crabbing trips and your love of the sea,
all of these are now a part of me.
Whenever someone called you were always there,
a heart of gold you always cared.
Now you're playing cards up in the sky,
forgive me if a tear comes to my eye.
Remembering all the things we would do,
Uncle Jimmy I will never forget you.
death, life, spiritual,
Illness we anticipate, but death we fear.
If dead, we cease to be.....
in total disbelief.
Swallows up life's brief existence.
Like summer gusts, so sudden.....
birth, then doom.
One's beginning and end alone doth it declare.
But are we whole of being?
If the breath alone be 'life' itself,
If even a soul like Vasco can know death.
Oh man! Thou body wasteless.
With it's strange purposes and dreaded activities...
whilst he gazed on eternity.
Retreating slowly, with meditative pauses, he formed with peaceful hands unconsciously.....
and then, he was gone.
These costless expressions of my shadowy self.
Be sad! Be glad! Be neither!
There is no reason why!
absence, death, goodbye,
When we were little, future was what we had
growing up, they turned into dreams
flourishing inside of us were them all
The strength to build these dreams before us, we all have
you, DEAR UNCLE, had that strength
but the storm of life blew too hard
the war wagged so fierce
You DEAR UNCLE, a strong man, a gentle fellow and an angel to everyone
maybe those dreams you had weren't fully fulfilled
hope you will fulfill them in the life to come
Sleep on DEAR ONE...

My Uncle - My Best Friend
Memories of a Man to whom I could confide,
You were always there to listen, never pushing me aside,
Understanding and kind, always a smile on your face,
Never a cross word, just a saving grace,
Cool, calm, and collected,
Looking dapper as can be, the
Epitome of a Man, I hoped God would send to Me.

death, deep, depression,
Why did you have to go,
Pain was your biggest foe,
You took the darkest road,
Your soul you have sold,
I wish it was just a dream,
It's worse then it may seem,
The happiness you didn't maintain,
All this time feeling pain,
In a dozen you were a dime,
I wish I could see you one more time,
I miss you so much,
I feel crippled I need a crutch,
I just want to see your face,
Why did you fall you were such an ace,
Like a child I need your hand,
Why did you go I don't understand,
Please come back to me,
I miss you so much I'm crying loudly,
One more time to see you on the base,
I'm so lost stuck on another planet in space.
art, confusion, death, family, loss, nature, sad, science,
When his truck met
with nature so pure,
Did he know his time
was coming to an end?
Basic elements of life
taught each day
not to think twice.
Giving humans oxygen,
yet encouraging a raging fire,
just ordinary trees.
Did he know they would
cut his time short?
A cremation vault so sacred
destroys our lives.
It put him in a vase
rather than a box.
Does he know now
that he has come
to an end?
childhood, death, family, nostalgia, uplifting, may, i love you,
You were taken much to young, you were only 37. You had so much to live for, but
god must have needed an extra angel to help pour out the rain. You never gave
up....even when they gave you only 6 months...you lasted 3 years. I always
remember you smiling face and your dimples. You may have only been here for a
short while but you left a lasting impression on every heart you touched...You may
be gone but you are still very much alive in my heart. I love you Uncle Billy!
death, loss, heart, heart, me,
My Dear Uncle
So many thoughts,
in my head.
So many things,
You left that day,
without a glance.
Never knowing God,
wasn't giving you a second chance.
What was in your head,
the last moments you had.
I hope you though happy thoughts,
and not sad.
No one can ever take your place.
Your image in my heart will never erase.
As you smile one me from up above.
My mind is still sad but my heart is filled with love.
I love you dear uncle you meant the world to me.
I'll always make you proud of me you will see.

Uncle Arthur's Final Farewell
The Service was well attended,
As we bid our final farewells.
Reverend Peters made the address
and thanked him for ringing the bells.
Not once did he miss practice night,
In almost Thirty-Five years.
Our Church bells now fall silence,
The assembled in floods of tears.
Brother Tom recalled a funny story,
To lighten the day with a joke.
Arthur would have loved it today,
He was just that kind of a bloke.
No one knew the rope had frayed,
Big Bertha, hanging on by a thread.
The Poor man never saw it coming,
Tragedy, Uncle Arthur was dead.
i await another day
heart pierced with pain
mind filled with disbelief
the night comes slowly
and so does death
growing crazier with each thought
thinking of what couldve been
thinking of what ive done
i killed him
its all my fault
How could i do this?
..hes never coming back
and now i am empty inside..
nothing to fill me but guilt
and i...i killed him
Mauro Jr Rosales
There’s something wrong with me,
Choking up my soul,
as I try to be.
It’s getting dark here,
I don’t know where to go.
Vision blurry and
my breathing has become slow.
The final curtain is at its last stand.
I'm Being brought down,
and I don't seem to understand.
I see a flash, full circle was exposed.
I know for sure...
this is the farthest I will go.
At this point nothing is left to regret,
I feel the tension
and the pressure now I'm upset
death, family, grief,
I am writing this poem for you today
Can’t believe you have really gone away
You were a beautiful person with a kind soul
It’s so difficult to say goodbye and let you go
Your laugh was infectious, your spirit always warm
You could put out family fires and calm the storms
Fond memories with you flood my mind, make me smile
I Remember when you tutored me, going the extra mile
I will cherish memories of our holiday celebrations
You always made them fun and special occasions
You are at peace now; I know it was your time to part
Memories of you Uncle Walt, I will hold close to my heart
appreciation, beauty, eulogy,
Here, where the sky is so close,
the deep shadows of the hill have
taken away our great uncle
A family love,
firm of authority,
Shield of wisdom.
We weep to usher gladness of comfort
Thereafter, we will pray:
through the Mercy of God,
that Impeccable care,
Tranquility, glory from Grace,
Love and affection, guardianship
unto our faithful ancestry
Blessedness of Eternal repose
death, funeral, giggle, humor, obituary,
Here lies my old Uncle Joe.
We sure weren’t sad to see him go.
He ripped off everyone he met.
Now his poor wife must pay his debt.
death, depression, loss,
An empty space,
In my life,
For as long as I live.
Tears running down,
Flowers all around,
For an occasion,
I will never forget.
The suffering look,
He once had,
Is now gone,
Because he’s in a better place.
Heads on one’s shoulder.
Eyes red from sobbing.
Of my Uncle Phil.
death, life, lost love, love, sad, me,
as he clasped to the wall
my HEART began to fall...
ALMOST TO THE GROUND
JUST loud enough TO MAKE
A BIG BUT
deep AND weak sound
THE SOUND OF PAIN....
But in my mind "I WISH IT WASN'T TIME"
TIME FOR HIM to go
and leave me all alone...
for me to CRY
and WISH IT WAS MY TIME to go
with you because i'm all
SAD AND BLUE
i never thought but
you was my uncle
BUT THE ONLY ONE WHO CARED
I WISH YOU WAS HERE TO MAKE
ME be me
here and there
My father's older brother
Passed away at 95.
That's 40 more years than
His younger sibling was alive.
My father never lived to meet
His grandkids or to know
The joy that such relationships
Allow to bloom and grow.
My uncle, though, had much more time
To travel, live and learn
But sadly, from his children
He got nothing in return.
Estranged from both (not by his choice)
He, like my father, missed
Connecting with the family
From which he was dismissed.
Yet Uncle Aaron had the love
Of others; I am one
Who'll mourn his death much more
Than both his daughter and his son.
They say you killed yourself
Dad and I do not believe it
The bullet casing was never found
We moved the stove to look
I lie. Dad moved the stove.
At your funeral someone you had befriended stood up
He said “This is for you Jerry”.
My hair stood on edge.
I heard him say it another time.
Saw him point the gun at you.
I knew you were murdered.
Validation at the nape of my neck.
You are my uncle and I have no proof
Except for my absolute knowing.
I am staying away from this guy.
Telling no one else
Because there is too much sadness already
And it will not bring you back.
death, funeral, jesus,
A few years back the last of the old family passed away. His last wish was to be laid to rest where he was born. We took him back to a small cemetery in the mountains of east Kentucky. Found a local pastor for graveside service. I asked the pastor what denomination did he belong to. He said with a smile, no denomination, I just preach Jesus. I shook his hand and said that will be fine with Uncle Charles.
absence, family, funeral, giggle, i miss you, music,
Daddy's piano plays my sadness
The funeral of a feeling
with a funny uncle at the mass
The windows feel the breeze
it's 6 pm in the afternoon, in Lisbon
The sun hides in a purple dusky sky
We feel formal but weak
We feel the missing of a heart
Lost in France,
'neath a simple cross,
Just name,nationality and rank;
Giving of life,was his loss.
A breaking,aching heart;
A sweetheart's pain;
was another's gain.
As echoing years slip by,
And still her tears flow;
her anguish sigh.
and for what?
Such ideas still beguile;
T'was ever thus,
the peasant soldier's lot.
