I Need Your Help Daddy

I’m tired
I’m Physically and Emotionally tired
I don’t want to be the strong one anymore
I can’t this time
I don’t know what to do Daddy
I need your help down here

I can’t get back in control of my emotions 
I’m having a hard time dealing with your absence
I’m having a hard time standing by myself
I need your help Daddy

I’m broken and lost without you Daddy
I need your will to want to carry on
I need your strength to over come this
I need your strength to stay standing
Your courage to fight back again
I need your help 

Please Daddy I’m at a loss
How am I suppose to do this
I need your guidance 
I need you to guide me back
To whom I was before
I need your help Daddy
I need your help

The Last Gold Leaf

The last gold leaf hangs on the bough;
Summer is just a mem'ry now.
You, too, have gone, my golden friend;
Our summer days came to an end.

We said goodbye; our chapter closed.
 How I will miss you no one knows.
 On eagle wings you split the skies;
Your spirit soared. You had to fly.

My earthbound soul will bear its grief
Severed from you on mortal reef;
But returning from yonder shore,
Your love in waves will wash me o'er.

You've gone before, my trusted love;
I wait behind, your mourning dove;
Yet, from across the great divide
Your voice to me in dreams confides.

No, I think not that dreams they are;
T is communion of the near with far.
On such sweet songs I stake my claim
To know and love you once again.

Alien In My Own World

I’m an alien in my own world
I think only I can see from above
I see the entire Earth
I see people, but no love

I try to tell them 
They’re the aliens in this world…
This world was built to be loved
And yet all they do is hurt…

Look around…the world is round!
It is spinning for us!
For me…
Because there’s not many humans to be seen…

I know I’m not alone though
Humanity will never die…
That’s something that I know!

You created districts…
You ripped humanity into pieces
Now we’re fighting like we’re beasts
I mean…I’m from the Middle East…trust me I’ve seen…

I’ve seen the value of one’s life
Destroy a home for a dime
Destroy humanity and it doesn’t count as a crime…
and yet…I’m out of mind?

IN MEMORY TO MY FATHER

written 23rd Oct 1997

So long I needed to visit
 but my heart didn't listen
Letting you know how much "I love you so"
 is now something, you will never ever know

Now that you are gone
 I know I waited to long
If I could just have that one more chance
 I would never treat it as just another glance

Now, you have become my biggest memory
 for you have gone, to a place I can not see
Knowing that we will never again touch
 makes me miss you, so very much

My children are still to young
 to wonder why pop hasn't rung
My heart is now empty
 for you, it always had plenty

I really do need to have you back
 you were the "only one, who saw me back
I know deep down inside
 you love me, more than words could describe

For it is only now, that I realise why you didn't want me around
 you knew how "painful it would have been, to watch you drown
But, as long as I am still alive
 you too, will continue to survive

For I will always be your darling little Denise
 who hopes, you forever rest in peace

                    ALLAN THOMAS HOLMES

DOORWAY TO GOD HEAVENS

THERE ARE MANY DOORS THAT ARE OPEN
AND THERE ARE MANY DOORS THAT ARE CLOSED
WE OFTEN WALK THROUGH THE WRONG DOOR
THAT LEADS US DOWN THE WRONG PATH OF LIFE

MY REDEMPTION I OFTEN TAKE
WALKING THROUGH A DOOR THAT
LEADS ME TO DARKNESS OF MY OWN MIND
I FEEL TRAP IN A DIMENSION THAT ONLY
GOD CAN UNDERSTAND AND HELP ME OUT

THE DOORS ARE LOCKED
AND THE DARK GETS DARKER AROUND ME
I HEAR STRANGE VOICES CALLING TO ME
TO STAY THERE BE AFRAID
I WONDER DO MY MIND GOES INTO INSANITY?
OR IS GOD TELLING ME SOMETHING?

I PRAY TO BE SET FREE 
TO SEE LIGHTNESS AROUND ME
PRAYING HOPING, BELIEVING AND FAITH
THE DOORS OPEN AND
THE LIGHT IS LIGHTNESS TO MY EYES
FEELING UNSURE WHAT HAPPEN TO ME
I ASK GOD, WHY WAS I PUNISHED THIS WAY?
REALIZING I HAVE TO FIND MY OWN ANSWER
I WALKED THROUGH THE DOORWAY TO GOD HEAVENS
BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL

Our Loss Is Heaven's Gain

(in reference to Lamar "L-Boogie" Featherston)

Constantly, does it leave on My mind, 
a mental strain
Everytime, I think of how you died,
in vain
Upon leaving your mark here, a
hard to get out stain
It's funny, for I never knew you
were in pain
Yet, outside My window, down
came the Rain
How it hurts, that I'll NEVER,
see you, Again

Peace In The Light

Peace In The Light

I live in a drywall box
Sitting alone staring at my clocks
With landscape art hanging all around me
Its no wonder inspiration has finally found me

One day my mind forced my hand to start writing
About my parents in Heaven still fighting
Knowing their bodies lie beneath the ground
But believing that is not where there to be found

One night I dreamt of a beautiful house
It was on a sunny hill where I saw cats playing cards with a mouse
There was a young woman sitting on a porch rail
She turned to me and asked why I looked so pale

She told me she did not die
She told me I no longer have to cry
Then all of a sudden I awoke
Asking myself... “Was Mom's death some kind of horrible joke”

The Wake…The Funeral…
The Burial Mass…The Grave
Mom's dream message proved to me 
She had risen from her Coffin in the Cave

Sometimes I wonder if Mom and Dad are really dead
Or are they living in my head
Can our parents be more alive than we think
Could they be some kind of Supernatural Link

Some say this life is a trial
With certain emotions recorded in our Spiritual File
We all experience wonder, joy, sorrow and pain
Some days… it’s a challenge just to stay sane

I pray our parents watch over us from afar
I swear sometimes… Their sitting in my car
Maybe when we experience life’s emotions
Our Parents are there recording the commotion

I bet Mom sews all day
She probably still has no time to play
I bet Dad writes all day
Will my sons ever find their way

Someday I will tell everyone
That Heaven maybe closer than the Sun
And even though our parents may not be here
When we take our last breath there is nothing to fear

Because what seems like a very dark day
Is really a small price to pay 
So the next time you hear a familiar voice in your head
It could be your parents telling you they are not really dead

And I thank… GOD… I no longer have to write
Because my parents have finally found Peace in the Light
And some day when it’s my turn to go home
I will show my parents this poem

On The Road To Heaven { Mom's Elegy }

<                    We are gathered here today to celebrate Bernadine Goerlich's life
                      Though taken from us to soon she has now risen to be with the Lord
                      Do not fret for greif and sorrow shall pass too
                      Let us bow our heads and pray 
                      In thy name of the Father Son And Holy Spirit  {Amen }

                      At the tender age of 70 she lived her life to the fullest
                      Raising a family of 10 she always had an xtra room
                      For she loved her God family friends and her beloved pets
                      And even heard of her always baking cakes cookies pies and italian foods
                      She really must of had her hands full with 5 boys and 5 girls

                      For Lord please cradle her in your everlasting arms
                      Wash away her sins and lift her spirit to you
                      For she has earned her wings of golden tone
                      And  now can rejoiced with her own Father and Mother
                      In God's jubliee Kingdom  Let us pray {Amen]

HEAVEN WEEPS.

Oh! How terrible as heaven weeps:
balls of blood drip from it as terror seeps
through the mind of godly humanity,
quite lost in the folds of vanity.

was Christ’s mission on earth a failure!
or did he conquer death with rigor?
today are we safe from the flames of hell?
oh! Heaven weeps, no one can tell.

rain falls in all its season making man to delight,
heavenly blood oozing and darkening this failing light.
truly man is a corrupt being 
created from god's benevolent ring.

oh how terrible as heaven weeps:
balls of blood drip from it as terror seeps
through the mind of godly humanity,
as heaven contemplates with what to do with such calamity.

A Lament at Heaven’s Gate

(for Chris Okigbo)


Briefly …
She makes a watery presence:

Singing
Before our oil-bean;

Clotting in departures:
Cloying with the shrine!

Singing
Worshippers have come;

We have come,
Singing but in sudden tears;

The goddess and her priest,
They have twinkled from the shrine:

Wiping their foot-prints
From Heaven’s Gate!
