Weary Traveler

Welcome lone traveler, how far have you come,

Eyes of exhaustion, weathered to numb,

Shoes in a tatter, clothes full of earth,

Skin full of scars, flesh of raw dirt,

What travel has brought you, welcome lost soul,

Come rest in the warmth, bathe off the cold,

I one of not much, yet humble in life,

Your needs are now more, I share in our plight,

With two words he spoke, I shall never forget,

“Bless you” kind sir, last tear is for death


Strength In Time


Three years past, each day a wander,
Three years gone, our spirit stronger-

Whisked away, upon an angel,
Family mourns, our strength in Gabriel,

Though the seas, bring tide to sand,
Our world was lost, without your hand,

This day will never, hath new meaning,
Greatness lost, without a reason,

Your presence felt, Maine to Boston,
Celtics, Bruins, Fenway, golfing,

A patriarch, led with pride,
Life cut short, the hands of time,

Can not explain, why god has chosen,
To take this life, why god has spoken,

Memories now, you shall reside,
Our love to never, fade or shy,

With moment near, we must confess,
We miss you dearly, in peace you rest,

Our heart might falter, our will let go,
In you our fight, will live to grow,

When all is lost, your words will speak,
In mind and matter, your guidance breathe,

Each day that passes, The heart grow stronger,
Our children laugh, in you we honor,

Your wife, your children, hold you close,
Grandkids stare, to stars with hope,

May closure come, within this passage,
Our faith in love, your heart nostalgic

Until we meet, past heavens gate,
Two words to speak, true love we thank

Without A Word

Gone for now, bid you adieu,
Life was short, but overdue,
To my friends, I say goodbye,
Thank you for, your watchful eye,

Gone for now, bid you farewell
To you, my family, left to dwell,
No more tears, prayers at night,
loss of years, escape from sight,

Gone for now, a heartfelt sigh,
I cannot look, I cannot cry,
The road I travel, this day forth,
A second chance, my last recourse

Lost Traveler

Illumination of shadows reflect on a past, a time not forgotten, endured to outlast, a city of souls often lost and untold, travel silent at night, heart heavy now cold.

Though passage through fate left an emptiness state, a mind of regret, proved harder to break.

Now stuck in a wonder, all choices are felt, lived life as a rebel, left only to self, one contemplates pain, an excuse for the blame, live life for the moment, or travel in vein.
