You came upon this Earth as one of us;
Preaching the word to all who would hear.
Your life already fully blessed;
You knew when your time was near.
Upon the cross you now lie.
Ready to take our sins away.
You let out one more breath and died.
Taken down, placed in a tomb, we wait the three days.
Arise, now we see, you now enter heaven for thee.
Now you wait for us to arrive so we can be with thee.
Snap, it is taken, preserved forever.
Memories frozen in time.
One frame stored for years to come.
Image of some event captured
To be remembered, shared with others.
To take out later to enjoy what had happened.
Snap, a picture is taken again to be preserved forever more.
Closed shell beneath the sea
Lies the clam quite as can be.
Rarely opens its shell to all
It sits alone on the sea floor.
It keeps to itself shut away
That no one knows what it might say.
Hard to read a close shell clam
They remain tight lipped in the sand all day.
At night I saw the moon smile at me with its half crescent mouth in a huge grin.
That’s all I saw of the moon, the rest hid behind dark clouds in the sky.
Grinning from ear to ear, so happy watching all from up above;
Showing all its wide grin beaming proudly
That he is the big cheese of the night sky.
Love, I can’t show you in a letter.
For I tried to hold the pen to no avail.
My paws don’t allow me to write,
For which I don’t know how to write at all.
I can show my love to you in other ways:
I’ll snuggle with you,
I’ll lick you,
I’ll play with you,
And I’ll be by your side for as I am here.
I agree I’m your companion,
For I’ll be there when you are blue.
Even through my life is short
I will fill your days with my love and energy.
I am your best friend and sorry I cannot write.
But, here is ripped up paper that I had tried to write on instead.
Like a thousand daggers my head throbs;
The sharp points digging into my skull.
The pressure to intense,
Beating me with points like needles.
I try to close my eyes,
Maybe sleep off another aching head.
But, no avail tense daggers seem to pierce deeper into my brain.
To intense I will find,
The cure that will dull the throbbing daggers
To only a pinch of a single needle.
Water and pill I take in one swallow.
Then I sit back, close my eyes,
Knowing the pressure and throbbing
Will disappear in an hour or more from now.
Love has no limits
For it is endless,
Has plenty to go around,
For it is a light that can never diminish
While we are still alive with
Love in our hearts;
Love has no limits at all.
Words like the flowing river have stopped coming
from my mouth that now is dry upon the page.
Waterfall like pencil that once flowed out onto the
page sits empty in my hand.
The rock pages stare blankly, nothing but laughter as to
taunt me, that once there flowed like the river the words
so free and clear;
Now, nothing no flowing words come easy now that my river
has all dried up.
Time jumps forward in leaps and bounds
To bring forth Spring with warmer days and nights.
Changing clocks to the next seasonal phase
Time moves on ahead until it decides,
Later in the year to step back and take an hour break.
I walk among feeling enclosed, shadows moving in from all sides;
Cutting my oxygen, choking me like a snake, to close as they walk;
Engulfing my presence down to a mouse, so as to pounce as a cat upon my being.
Feelings of too many eyes staring upon me as I walk among them;
Try as I must to breathe, it is shallow from many faces staring
That I wish to hide myself away from their presence.
But, I will push through the crowds, hide my nervousness;
Hold myself high, not letting my self-doubt of being in crowds bother me no more.
