@DailyWisdomWords poetry challenge…Resolution

My resolution this year is steeped in sadness

I want to return to the living in gladness

I want the pain and tears of rain to lessen

I don’t want to do any more second guessing

Reaching beyond the veil to touch your love

Is not the way to express what you dream of

Angel
Angels dwell among us!

Lost in reflection…

Looking back, could I have done something more?

Something different?

Something besides staring at the floor

Covered in needles, adrenaline vials spent?

Plastic wrappers tossed aimlessly

My life shattered shamelessly

But I didn’t even think about me

His body, now removed, was all I could see

I did no wrong

But he was gone.

I bent down and cleaned up the mess

Left by those who took him to his final rest.

 

Holidays…

A quiet holiday I crave

To reflect on all the blessings gave

To me this past year

When I have known such fear

And shed so many tears…

After the holidays, after the winter snow

Spring’s warmth will come to show

The way…

To a brighter day!

Lethargy … This was a daily word challenge by www.dailywisdomwords.com Check it out!

Lethargy, the word is loathsome and cumbersome

Hard to say; ruins your day; hard to live; nothing to give

Mind in depression; body in regression

Stand up, fight back; don’t give up, get on track!

Never let lethargy win; I’ve been there

Beware, show that you care!

The Last Beach Sunset

IMG_20180402_193400

Rainbows of color through the sky

I didn’t even wonder why

A trick of the light reflected in the glass

How were we to know it was the last?

Just a few days passed

And he was no more

He had slipped through the veiled door

Into what lies beyond

To a realm that broke our bond

But a few nights ago

I saw a rainbow

His way of letting it be known

I’m not alone

He made it home
