My Parting Gifts


                 My Parting Gifts…

Goodbye my son, my only king.
You are my love, your name I sing. 
My wish was more to be with you,
to be with you, and see you through.
This is my fate to leave you now,
my dread was this, to tell you how.
I’m going away, place unknown. 
The way I lived was not my own.
I am going, to ease my pain.
Letting you go, is my complain.
I am with you, with morning dawn.
Kissing with breeze until it’s gone.
My parting gifts to you my son,
to live your life, the way is fun.
Surrender to, the thing you love,
what measures love, grows above.
To get knowledge to find out why;
what is this life to you and I?
Me and you both, we are oneness.
There is no fear, to feel darkness.
I am going without goodbye,
Remember me the way I fly.

A Day When Winter Said Goodbye



In the midst of morn she quietly rose to greet the dawn of silent repose She searched beyond the frozen hills and through the bough's of crystal frills She danced in dream as clouds rolled by in hopes the sun would pierce the sky As moments passed nil of light the wind kicked up with all it's might In tumbling turmoil the west winds raged in fluttering beauty to turn the page Within a breath a single sigh the Winter wrath had waved goodbye As sunlight burned of velvet white upon her face a shaft of light... ______________________________________ Poet ~ Rick Parise

The Wind

You are like the wind

Gently guiding me by while barefoot on a beach
No matter how far, I’m always within its reach

Pushing me through rough seas like a sail
With you mountains are nothing to scale

Like the wind comes great change
And all begins to rearrange

You force the snow to sting my face
Foot prints in the sand you erase

You slow me down
Mountains still all around

I wait for your storm to pass
With each half full glass

But behind every storm
Lies a sunrise to keep me warm

In that light I shall lay
Because long I have waited for this day

My Words Washed You Away

I stole the surges of the ocean and the glory of the wave,
the roiling seas as recompense for what you never gave.

And I thought that I might see you at the dock or by the bay,
and I thought that you might love me, but my words washed you away.

Goodbye George

Dear George, we’ve had eight fine years
You had half the world shedding tears
Involved our neighbors on distant shores
Sent our kids off to senseless wars
We are still paying for your aggression 
With worldwide economic depression
You attacked Iraq as you had vowed
Took damn good care of the corporate crowd
I put a sign on my front lawn
Saying good bye George, Thank God you’re gone

I'm Going Away

I’m going away for a while
Life seems to have stolen my smile

Some of you I will miss so much
Maybe later we’ll get in touch

In Cyprus my daughter I'll see
T'will bring joy to sorry old me

I won’t have much time to be here
But some of you I’ll still hold dear

I seem to have lost some desire
Due to the mishap with the “fire”

Not so proud of what I have done
So I’ll escape to have some fun

My heart is made of marshmallow
Bruises by gal or by fellow

Don’t worry, it’s just for a time
Maybe later I’ll try to rhyme

But for now, it is surely goodbye
Hope to see you all by and by.

Goodbye Granddad

Gravity pulls my tears into pools.
Im sinking in sorrow -emotional fuels. 

Just turn back the time, I just want a moment. 
To say goodbye once, to cherish and own it. 

I loved my granddad - a man more than great.
Paired with my Granny as the perfect mate. 

A montage of memories that rush my soul.
My eyes fill with tears, I'm losing control. 

Just keep it together, it's what he would want. 
They all say the same, but I stand in front. 

Happiness swells, yet sadness prevails.
Like Christ on the cross, with hands full of nails. 

Life has a reason, and death isn't treason.
-It's moving on up.. A lifetime's a season. 

I look to the sky and say my goodbye.
The time won't turn back, I gave it a try. 

I close my eyes and imagine this-
Paradise in a place full of bliss. 

World peace in a piece of the world.
Without loss and bombs never hurled. 

Snow that falls that doesn't freeze.
Sun that shines that doesn't cease. 

A land where "The forever" is real.
A scene where the sick always heal.

Life with infinite love, like gusts in the wind.
Two little doves, with eternities to spend. 

God has a plan, fool-proof to the core. 
Now Granddad's with him, a reward of much more. 

-Yours Truly

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Goodbye Im gone

On my knees I kneel and pray
Forgiveness from you today
What I done was truly wrong
Your time now I won’t prolong
How stupid I was and foolish too
That sad sad day that I wed you

The prison of the keys

And now I've lost my papers,
My passport and my wife,
The very essence of
My identity and life.

My bank account is empty,
My cloths and garments sold,
My skin and bones are ashes,
Spread thin on the open road.

My old car's broken down,
No wheels to touch the floor,
The motor been dismantled,
Stripped clean down to the core.

The bailiffs and the policemen,
Have emptied my abode,
The promises I made you,
Have been auctioned out and sold.

The love I hold within me,
Is all that I now have left,
The rest is bleak illusion,
The bind man and the deaf.

The imaginary people ,
I thought were my friends,
Have left the scene forever,
As the road of life does bend.

And now I stand alone,
Upon this lonely hill,
I gaze upon the meanings,
The years have silently killed.

In the roaring storms of thunder,
In the lightning in the night,
In the whispering of the children,
In the white doves lonely flight.

In the dust of many ages,
That has settled on my soul,
In the ashes of my humanity,
That has filled my begging bowl.

The ancient breeze is blowing,
Calling me to my knees,
To behold the light within me,
In the prison of the keys.

Time to say goodbye

How do you say "Goodbye" to a friend
How do you realise her life had to end

What a huge gap you leave which will never be filled
Remembering your smile your manner so mild

I will remember you with fond memories, Castle wont be the same
Remembering our bingo jaunts a fortune to attain

The curb you put on my spending
Whilst waiting  for bingo to begin *

"Now Seren"'  you would say just £5 each to start
We wont bother with this and  that  

I used to laugh saying ok 
sneaking another in when she looked away

The time i won seven hundred pounds was so funny you see
I just calmly pressed the claim button, she yelled like a banshee

Thinking it was maybe a hundred wasnt that impressed
Til i saw it was much more than i had ever guessed

Your with your folks now Betti you have missed them so,
We will all get through this with  you watching us, I know.

Hwyl fawr Betti oeddech yn ffrind da, bydd yn methu  ti
goodbye Betti you were a good friend, will miss you so.

*. Can play slot boards at Castle Bingo Hall whilst waiting for session to start.

Costs 50p -£1 a game.

Betti was same age as me, diagnosed, tumour on lung 10days before she died, Left it too late to get help.  

Funeral today at 12.30

Jada Mortensen

And so she was the girl from Bair.
With ocean eyes and golden hair.
Of heavy heart and light despise
Of cupid's dart and winter's cries.
There came a day when things did end.
Around the corner of the bend
There came a truck and in dispair
The loudest word was spoken there.
And so she left to who knows where.
Whilst many cried because they cared.
She roams around in circles too,
And whispering winds and skies of blue.
We raise our glass towards the sky
And smile a memory although she died.
No tears tonight, not ever one.
For there she rests inside the sun.
She is okay we know for sure.
In better days to now endure.
And so she was the girl from Bair
With clemency; a heart so fair.
And as we lay in bed and sigh,
I'd like to say to you Goodbye.

Rest In Peace Best Friend

My Escort is gone

Days are long and nights are short.
To last through time I will need an escort.
But yesterday I heard the news
my escort is gone, to heaven he flew.

I saw the feathers from his wings fell
in the lonely nights did time love to dwell.
Even so, I still need him nevertheless 
though I know he's there, giving me his bless.

It's easy to walk with a pair of legs,
to fly with wings, not some wooden pegs.
The flesh was raw but now it has rot
with attempts to untangle this strangled knot.

I am in pain, in severe pain
and all this sadness do I wish to feign.
But he is gone, everything is gone.
Hopefully I'll live to see the upcoming dawn.

good bye old friend crystal meth

Bertyrayed by a friend
Almost showed me the end
Her name is crystal meth
She put me close to death
She asked me one day 
If I would like to come out to play
She made me think i was in love
One kiss and i was flying like a dove
She seperated me from family and friends
Had my life close to the end
Opened up my eyes that she was going to stay
I just wanted her to go away
I seen my friendship had to end
I finally said good bye my friend
I don't wanna see any more death
Good bye my old friend Ms crystal meth

Tribute to Tommy Cat

Oh Tommy cat, precious little guy,
You knew we came to say good-bye.

Our hands reached out to stroke your fur.
We all knew what would soon occur,

That you would have a lasting sleep,
And in our hearts your love we'd keep.

For fourteen years you were at home,
Brought joy and love where you did roam,

Waiting to greet us at the door
As soon as our feet touched the floor.

Oh yes, how we felt your sweet love,
And soon you'll watch us from above.

They laid you in my arms until
That shot relieved you of your will.

Still, in in my arms, you lay asleep,
Kitty heaven where angels keep.

I asked my aunt who loved cats so
To come to greet you when you go.

She heard me, this is how I know.
Overhead was a huge rainbow. . !

GOODBYE DAD

GOODBYE      DAD


Never got a chance to say a proper goodbye
Too late now to waste time regretting or muffle a cry
When last we spoke I never saw you again
Just wanted you to know it hadn’t all turned out in vain 
Many of the main things in your life became the main things in mine
Kept on pushing with all my strength to the end of the line
Never stood by when someone was kicked around
Always felt one with the poor, the gagged and bound,
Never let the rich guys get a free ride  if I could help it
Stopped them and made them feel the pinch if time would permit
Was outraged at bureaucratic bull and complained out loud
I’m not certain  but I think you might  have been proud 
Built up some handy ways for work, destroyed a few useless ways
Helped a few people  to live easier, peaceful days
Always used what brains I had, and avoided wasting even a moment
Tried to find useful ways as to how my time was spent 
Happiness?  Some, sure, but not always, except towards the end.
Regrets?  Yes, my damaging mistakes cannot be made to mend.

Nothing Under My Bed

Daylight hours too, 
Can be insidiously cruel.
I'm sunshine on a cloudy day, 
And I'm nobody's fool.
My manners will last longer, 
Than any pain he can bestow. 
The lessons from my intimates, 
Outlive the insults he can throw.
There are still rainbows 
Where my heart beats.
Look! He is walking 
up the wrong street

For I am no longer his home
And I am numb no more.

Goodbye Mr. Campbell

Our province's premier resigned yesterday
After his liberal government had their way.
Making deals with Ottawa behind our backs
Then wondering why his integrity we attack.
When asked why he's stepping down after nine years
No honest answer came , just vagueness appears.
Not because trust from the masses and his own party he lacks,
He's just run out of ways to stab us in the back.
Now he'll take the hefty pension allotted to him
After making sure the rest of our wallets remain slim.
Goodbye Mr. Campbell, you won't be missed,
Can you see the finger sticking up from this fist.

Summer


Drifting through the trees,
With a hint of summer breeze.

Birds fly high,
Up into the honey blue sky.

The smell of grapes and sunflowers fill the air,
The glossy shine of girl’s hair.

You can feel the heat,
Feel the ground burn beneath your tanned feet.

You run and prance,
Glad of the chance.

Because sun and heat,
Won’t last a beat.

You swear you can feel past ones beneath your feet,
Dancing with you in the summer heat.

You all dance in the same beat twirling and swirling,
 Your beautiful dress unfurling.

You laugh at the chance,
You and your partner take up arms and prance.

Its slow then fast,
It won’t last.

In the summer heat,
Everyone can feel the beat.

The next day you dance and dance,
Glad of the chance.

40 days pass and you know this one will be the last,
You dance and twirl incredibly fast.

At the end of the dance you say goodbye,
Even to the sunny sky.

Just as the bell rings,
The first sound of droplets sings.

You ask for 1 more chance,
And you dance.

Sunshine or no,
You won’t let the fun go.

So you dance in the rain,
And you let go of all the pain.

GOODBYE

The leaves are crying 
Winter takes charge

The daylight is gone 
Quietness takes place

The church bell is ringing goodbye 
Angels are singing welcome

The time is getting high 
Check out what is left behind 

So quicker than thought 
Yet a life is gone 

Everyone will go this journey 
Time unknown to anyone is the reason for this goodbye in tears

If I should wake

Every night I try to sleep I lie awake tired and weak I dread waking the next day with fear it will end the same way.Then when I can see your face my life stops flowing as a disgrace my life blossoms like a flower praying together another hour.I bid farewell to you my friend.

my heart forever

I miss you my friend 
Why did your life come to a sudden end
I know it was your time to be called
But we were having a ball
Your heart I knew ached
But should of caught a break
Why did it have to come to death
Holding you on your last breath
You said you wanted to die in my arm
But a week later didn't know you were in harm
You were sitting there in the chair
Didn't know Angel of Death was there
It was so sudden with out any warning
Next thing in knew I was in mourning
Didn't even had a chance to say good bye
I wish you didn't have to die
In heaven is where you went 
My life has been save so that is where I will be sent
I miss you more than ever
You will live in my heart forever

Saying Goodbye to Conformity

I no longer feel numb...


Because the waves are dancing,
                                             and crashing into the shores,

Robins are chirping sweet melodies,
                                                  songs that I cannot ignore,

Bliss is a high mountain,
                                 and I'm at its ultimate peek,

I can now love myself,
                               conformity... I no longer seek,

The floras spread their scent,
                                        while smiling up to the sky,

The ships are sailing, and arms are flailing,
                                                           it's time to say goodbye,

I can now love myself,
                               conformity was a foolish ally.

How I Tried On Valentine's

How I tried on Valentine's
all over the many years.
I've lost all of my Valentine's
and most of them in tears.

How I tried on Valentine's
to find my merry mate.
Working through the ugly
and possible first-rate.

How I tried on Valentine's
Forgetting all my failures.
Moving to the next one
oblivious of the bailers.

How I tried on Valentine's
to settle for much less.
Hoping that the next one
Would change and reassess.

How I tried on Valentine's
to go the other way.
Hoping that they'd chase me
finding me as clay.

How I tried on Valentine's
to say what's on my mind.
Shouting out my arrogants
and baiting the wrong kind.

How I tried on Valentine's
to make a friend at first.
Only to be shunned again
by girls who want you worst.

How I tried on Valentine's
to wait for the right time.
Left to find my girl
on another's dime.

How I tried on Valentine's
to spin a small milk bottle.
Landing on a stranger
foreign without throttle.

How I tried on Valentine's
to meet up with a bore.
When all she kept on talking 'bout
was nothing and no more.

How I tried on Valentine's
coveting one man's wife.
Only to release her
sharing in man's strife.

How I tried on Valentine's
Loving her full body.
Finding that she had no mind
and wished she had a hobby.

How I tried on Valentine's
Waiting to make love.
Ending up with others
When push came into shove.

How I tried on Valentine's
Seeking out a hottie.
Making me a sickly boy
who's doctor now called naughty.

How I tried on Valentine's
Expecting an easy date.
Getting just the opposite
but figuring it too late.

How I tried on Valentine's
Jailbait in short skirts.
Quick to kiss what doesn't last
and limits to their flirts.

How I tried on Valentine's
making the first move.
Only to find I'm ignored
for others in her grove.

How I tried on Valentine's
forcing my own way.
Told by a cold shoulder
How I could not stay.

How I tried on Valentine's
two instead of one
Only to be shot down
and told that I am done.

How I tried on Valentine's
Perfect to a tee.
Wanting only to be seen
in a bar as fee.

How I tried on Valentine's
Cautious and carefree.
Never knew what she was thinking
or who was bird or bee.

How I tried on Valentine's
remembering what I've learned.
Speaking words of wisdom
and loves that have been spurned.

When I Will Try To Say Goodbye

When I Will Try To Say Goodbye

When I Will Try To Say Goodbye
Many times I have wondered why
Together we could not get along
And so for you I wrote this song.

Time and time again we both fought
Wanting to know whether or not
You were right and I was wrong
Yet still together we did belong.

Many times took you in my arms
Dazzled by all of your charms
Ended up vanishing in the night
And now no longer hold you tight.

But now with each passing thought 
In my web of love are tightly caught, 
And locked in forever to remain true 
So this sweet song I wrote about you.

goodbye bad memmories

No more feeling torn apart,
No more useless Shitty art,
And no more aching in my heart.
You and me,
We have a thing. 
It lifts me up and makes me sing.
My heart was broken, 
Now together,
Hoping this will last forever.
No more crying empty tears
That have built up from the past.
Bad, old memories should never last.
Empty promisses are gone too,
And I now know that I can pull through.

GOODBYE

Goodbye to you my Best friend
It’s hard to believe that we’re worlds apart.

 We were like strings on a guitar,
Making harmony and pleasant tones.

You were there when I took the first step,
And gave me directions ever since.

You taught me life’s valuable lessons
And saw me through my mistakes.

Unable to see the virtues you bestowed,
Cut-short by nature’s worthy call.

A decade now past and I realize;
This friend is gone but ever-green.

But with the gift of the Name
Like a tattoo I will always have.

And even if I hate to believe you’re gone,
Goodbye to you my Best friend.

Salutations and Satin Sheets

Pulling up his pants I think he's already forgotten me
Smeared lipstick and a handful of twenty's

Dirty condoms laying on couch, the bed, and the floor 
He gives me a mischievous wink and out the door

Now i'm angry at what I've done 
A filthy whore with cheap discreet fun

Laying on my bed it smells like sex
My life has always been cursed like a hex

No worries i've got a way to take away the pain
Pulled the trigger on my twenty two and blew out my brain

Don't Say Goodbye

I love you
With all of my heart.
I do hope
That we don't part.
When you leave,
And walk through that door,
I fear that
You wont love me anymore.
Far away
For far too long,
But at least our love is strong.
I will love you until i die.
Just promise me
That you wont say goodbye.
