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!

With My DAD

As a child

and with my dad

I learned to fish

still makes me glad

to think about

that long,

stinky pier

we walked with care

our tackle near

and listened to cheers

as people reeled up

their mystery catch

with excited smiles

and hopeful eyes!

I couldn’t wait

to drop our lines

to feel the bite

the best surprise!

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.

Note to mom

A year later and this poem still rings true for me and my view of today.

chatter from the pool cabin

So much has changed

since you’ve passed,

the world’s a mess

that cannot last –

and

you’d never think

we’ve digressed this way,

where “equality and justice’

is something to say,

to remind each other

that it should apply to all,

for if it doesn’t,

we all take the fall.
