The Beginning Of An Ending

Do not grieve for my passing, for it was my time
For life is but the Lord's property, and now he has reclaimed mine
I regret leaving you here, though I've indeed been set free
But I could no longer ignore God's call for me
Though I went with Him, I made sure to take you along
And I left with you memories of times past but definitely not gone
I go home to my father in a place of peace
To be reunited with sisters and brothers, a whole line of family
Cry if you must, mourn if you may
But not over things you failed to say
Death is not eternity, it was a short bridge I had to cross
And though I have departed from this world, my life is not lost
I say farewell to you now, for it is a temporary goodbye
For one day you too will go where I now arrive
Someday in the future we will cross paths again
And together we will travel that long road, and there speak of the end

An Angel's Death

A desperate angel,
got no wings to fly;
wounded; hurt;
can’t spread his arms
to soar beyond
the cerulean sky.
With eyes of fear 
and mournful tears;
hearing only silence,
makes him frail-
so pathetic.
As he lay on the ground-
earth in his sight,
embracing the floor;
reaching his limitation,
he’s starting to fade:
becoming paler,
ceasing his casualty.

A very sad song
was played
for the angel’s fate.
Candles were lighted;
a thunderous howl:
a piercing mourns.
Slowly, gently,
he vanished; departed;
kissed the lips-
orifice of death.
Evenly hovered
in the air,
taken away by the
vivid rays;
where a hand reached
behind the light,
with a calm face,
welcomed him again.

An Angel's Touch

When we lose someone close to us They're really not gone at all They speak to us through an angel's touch Listen closely and you'll hear their call For the spirit of those we love Lingers behind to play A melody of memories You can cherish every day So when the gentle breezes blow And music fills the air Remember the angels who touch your life And know they're always there

OUR WEDDING VOWS

page turning suspense filled the vaulted sepulchral air
   ushering the veiled spouse to be
while afar off trumpets did blare
   (arranged by the well known matchmaker Harriet Kuritsky)
creating the ambience analogous to a renaissance faire
   yet contrasted in that this bachelor and other men related to me
segregated with females and males at a set distance away i.e. not physically 
near
   dictated by mandates of the Hebrew coda stemming from Moses biological tree
which separate quarters ample enough to spare
  until the proper toll of the bell would peal accompanied by yippee!
 
after Rabbi Boyce officiated for Matthew Scott 
   and Abby Robin, the crowd exalted with cheers
of L’Chiam with chutzpah oompah’s sizzling and hot.
 
klezmer musicians played schmaltz
which accompanied the hoopla as couples did waltz.
 
all the while family, friends and relatives blessed the new groom and bride 
   although highly orthodox, the men removed respective skullcap 
more commonly known as the yarmulke some plain others dyed
   women and children broke out in traditional dance and song while other did 
clap
exemplifying Yahweh to deliver mazal tov and shalom as spiritual guide
   to the pronounced husband and wife who pledged their troth in a snap.
 
toward conclusion of this typical Jewish wedding, a full goblet of kosher red wine
   got tossed in the air
this (in conjunction with crush of the emptied wine glass) communicated a sign
   and marshaled the crowd to begin a local Jerusalem exodus symbolic and 
clear.
 
as the newlyweds blissfully and radiantly strolled arm in arm
   and exited the Synagogue, the euphoric and excited crowd
tossed handfuls of uncle Ben’s unconverted rice grown from a nearby organic 
farm
a chauffeur waited to shuttle them to their honeymoon location
   passersby waved and bowed e'en thy first grade school marm!

Drew

These days things
just ain't the same without you
time has aged us
everything is changing
the new seems to only replace the old faces
with odd faces, and, cold places
I talk on ocassion to God
'bout your situation
but all it ever causes is complications
still you're the topic of our conversations
between me and Jason that we have some days
he misses you just as much as I miss you
but thinking of you is
still a sensitive issue, it
seems sinceless to explain in a sentence
how we feel about you both
with the words that we've written
and either via poem or song or both
man as long as you know
you'll never go unmentioned
though you made it home Drew
you're still our best friend
the brotherhood and bretheren
between three friends is 
endless even when one's missin
as God as my witness
I pray that you're listening

IN THE QUIET OF THE NIGHT

To lie here... 
With you 
In the quiet of the night 
Sleeping softly... 
Near... 

All I can hear 
Is you... 
Sleeping softly 
What you do... 
In the quiet of the night 

Gentle loving... 
Breathing your scent 
All through... 
The quiet of the night 
Sleeping with you... 

The curve of your back 
Smell of your hair... 
In the quiet of the night 
My heart, laid bare 
My body... 
Feeling you there 

Sleeping softly... 
In the quiet of the night 
Where I want to be, 
until dawn light

SOMETHING OF A KIND

Where are we today? 
What will we find? 

Something of a kind 
A lonely world.... 
We cannot turn 
Amongst ourselves... 
We must find... 
Something of a kind 

A million small kind acts.... 
Blossomed like flowers 
You see.... 
They did not go unnoticed.... 
They filled meadows.... 
With colour, depth and power 

A million small people.... 
Blossomed 
Became something of a kind 
For you .... 
For me... 
A likeness of mind 

Be something of a kind.... 
What you can do 
For, close by 
Most of all, for you 
Pay no mind... 
To those who ask why 

They are a kind of something.... 
In a lonely world 
They cannot blossom 
They do nothing... 
Nothing at all, 
to help those, who fall 

Be something of a kind 
What you can be... 
For you.... 
For me... 
A likeness of mind 

Where are we today? 
Tomorrow, we will find 
The meaning....

You

You gave me new life when I was broken
You breathed Your life into my fragile soul
You are more than I have ever realized that I ever wanted
You have made me complete in a world of half life
You have made me dream and helped me to understand them
You brushed Your tender fingers against my skin to let me know I am loved
You hear my tears fall in the night when the world is at rest
You bring me peace when the chaos is swirling inside me
You speak my name to say that I am heard
You make me see beauty in nature out of the ugliness of life
You let me know that you are with me when I am lonely
You comfort my mind when I am beyond consolation
You reach for my heart and envelope me in gentle hands
You are my maker, my friend, my savior, my fire

So It Is With You

Even when the trees have forfeited their leaves
Lost eternally in a fog-filled plain of despair
And all is submersed in deafening silence
I brace myself for colder winds

Still I notice you on colder nights
When darkness encroaches on my soul
Reminiscing of peaceful mountain bliss

Encased in an indomitable white blanket
All creation shivers underneath 
Forceful piercing winds blowing gray
Gnawing away my hope for more 

But what was relentlessly frozen through
Has bravely surfaced impenetrable doubt 
Redecorating life in vivacious greens

Even now in death you open intrepid doors
For new life to begin an extravagant novel journey
And so it is with you and how you make me new 
In every season's change
