Strength In Time

image

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

Delivered

Whenever there’s trouble, feelings of woe,
Just know that my ears, are here for you know,
As one who will listen, speak to you clear,
In that moment it’s true, I will always be here,

Though the time is not present, not the near future,
Just know that your trust, can rest as you choose it,
So worry not now, as all will be fine,
A gift that’s received, at just the right time

The Chosen One

Love but a wonder, lost but not found,

The meaning, the word, distorted you drown,

In hopes of true bliss, some fall to remiss,

In search of queen, or son born a prince,

Is there a path? Neither charted or cast,
Which leads to the truth of I soulmate I ask,

And If there is one, truly born to become,
Will I then be worthy, to accept and not shun,

If I choose to pass, while my heart remain cold,

Will destiny hail, and reveal you to show,

That dreams are not vague, merely thoughts to enslave,

But the breath of each life, that brings hunger for pain.

Father’s Rendition

Though alone for just now, my spirit take flight,

In the wings of the battle, I’m the birds of the light,

Though trials become many, hardships endured,

The strength, solidarity, comes to mind for a word,

Must be a strong father, who comfort and cuddle,

At night kiss your cheeks, say good nights, and I love you,

Stand tall a role model, my daughter, my world,

Will never see harm, yes your daddy’s little girl,

It is you that I live for, and wake up each day,

Push forward to triumph, never to stray,

I promise you now as I write on this page,

To always be here, through the rainiest days,

Now this is the bird, I speak of the light,

These but the words, that disturb me at night,

Though born to be free, oppression seems right,

I close my eyes slow, but the walls are still tight,

I channel my anger, bottle and ship it,

As the clouds of all black, engulf all my vision,

The darkness it falls, to the hearts of the soul,

Will I be remembered, in the end when I fall

Lover’s Myth

Mysteries of the heart cumbersome if not shared, many ways to embark, many moments bring tears, while none can claim novice, nor dare to claim Pro, experience inneffective, each time the unknown.

If not for the promise, an American dream, picket fence for our children would never be seen, though often a not, this hope that is sought, will trump the most powerful, expressed with a scar.

If measured in depth, all would be said, success or our failure, love could never be met.
