Go Forward

Think forward to the future,

the days and weeks ahead –

the opportunities abundant,

for the past is really dead.

 

Let the clouds and sky surround you,

let the sun shine in your smile –

the future is upon us –

it’s been here all the while!

Valentine

I turn to you

in the middle

of the night

the warmth of

your skin

next to mine

your soft,

gentle breathing

reminding me

I am safe

safe in your

snuggle

safe

in

my mind.

The March

It was a day

unlike any other,

I marched for myself

I marched for my brother.

 

I felt so determined

to walk with love and belief

and to march with so many

was such a relief.

 

But, to go it alone,

with my head held high

to march toward a future

Is something I’ll try.

A Child’s Birth

 

All the pain

and grueling struggle,

to bring you here

was worth the trouble.

 

When your head appeared,

we were both intrigued,

and as you slipped forth

I’ve never felt so relieved!

 

We counted your fingers,

and tugged at your toes,

we felt your smooth skin,

then we touched your pink nose!

 

I wanted to cry

but my throat felt so tight,

I had longed for the day

we could kiss you good-night!

Happy Birthday Sarah Anne

 

I Bleed Too

Your words,

cutting through my soul

making my spirit bleed

tears waiting to fall.

You have

no idea of my pain,

as my chest heaves heavy,

my mind cluttered.

Did I?

Did I bring on this hate?

Without ever knowing  your past

your pain?

Never would I

no reason no personal gain,

or agenda do I have,

only the pain

of your words.
