We Lost More Than a Dad

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost we four girls first love
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half 
Our children lost their Papaw
We lost our family’s foundation 
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew 
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we four girls Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We four girls lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We four girls lost more than a Dad
We lost more than just a Dad that day

Miss You, Dear Mom

Miss you, dear Mom…you left our lives so long ago,
And well before you even had a chance to know
The sweet, now grown, grand kids so little when you left…
In all these forty-three plus years I’ve been bereft,
Living each day to know the special things you missed…of
Doing without your presence and embracing love…
Although, I know you’re watching, loving from above.

I Looked For You Today

Dear Mom,
I looked for you today.
I found you in the smell of coffee,
as I passed our favorite café. 

I felt you in the cool breeze,
that traveled fiercely up my spine.
I put my face toward the sky
and found you in the warm sunshine.

I looked for you today,
but I didn't have to look far.
When I lifted my head up high,
I found you in the stars.

I will never stop looking,
because I know you're always around.
I know you have never left me,
you're just waiting to be found.

Eternal Flame

Without you, the days are so long
& sometimes it's hard to just carry on.
You gave life & love to all things
The joy of giving was what you would bring.

I see your smile inside my head,
It just isn't fair that you have to be dead.
I know you suffered though all the while
You held your head high & even would smile.

As I watched you go through it, I always had hope,
Even when we came to the end of the rope.
Everything that we went through
Helped make us closer & more loving too.

Through ups & downs you always were strong
Even when you knew you didn't have long.
Life can be kind & cruel in the same,
But you will live on forever because of loves eternal flame.

The Old Salt

The Old Salt was a special man who came along in a time
when he was needed most.

A time that is now gone forever.
When men believed and sacrificed, when hero’s walked the earth in mass.

When patriotism was not just a word
by what men lived and judged the worth of each, 
a man who lived a life most of us cannot comprehend. 

An era now gone as this warriors tour of duty ends at this station, 
and begins anew in the heavenly fleet. 

Sail on Sailor into your unaccompanied tour,
we salute you.

What greater honor, that when a man moves forward, 
he leaves behind in each of us the best of what he was. 

A defender, protector, supporter, victor, a warrior, 
the last of the breed from an era when ships were made of wood
and men were made of steel.

The Old Salt has reported for duty that takes him away from us for now. 

Those of us who remain behind,
remember, and will continue to remember, 
because he now resides forever in our hearts.

As I look up at night, I envision The Old Salt,
a beret draped just above the eye, 
as he draws upon his pipe, 
quietly he waits.
The guardian of heaven’s gate.

a mothers love

 a mothers love is stronger than all and she knows her daughter better than all 
a mothers love is never bitter and never vengefully 
a mothers love is always kind and there no matter what you do
a mothers love is forever a bond between a girl and her mother is always a strong on but it gets stronger as they grow up and it gets even stronger as the girl moves away calls and calls then less and less.... then you worried about the bond but no worries that's a bond that cant be broken nor replaced

Life Can Be Cruel

I cannot get into heaven
God I have tried!
Suicide is a double edge sword
Especially when you survive!
Walking the streets at night
Dazed and confused
Longing to be loved
When is Mum, coming for me?

"Does she still love me?"
"Does she still care?"
"Does she still think of me?"
"Does she wonder, where I am?"

I want her to come find me
I want her to say she 'loves me’
I want her to comfort me
I want her to take me home
And keep me safe
And not forget hat I exist
Like the way she treats me now

I wish God 
Could make my Mum
Magically appear
Making this hellish nightmare
On the street

“Send my Mum please!”
So, all this can end!
Before this last ray of hope
Diminishes for good!

I don’t want to become
The walking dead
Forever forgotten as if 
I was never born!
For this is the cruel, harsh reality
Of living life, feeling unloved
Uncared for, abandoned,
Left to fend for my own

A dangerous killer inside me
Eating away, at my soul
Something, no one can see
As I suffer in silence
My insides crippling!

Lost, alone and frightened
Weeping on a dirty
Graffiti park bench
Dirty tears
Rolling down my cheeks
Stuffing newspapers under my jumper
To keep myself warm

“What am I going to do?”

“Will I make it through the night?”
“Will I get raped and beaten?”
"Will I be left for dead?”
“Will I survive
To see another day?

“Is my life worth living?”

Please God, I beg of you
Have mercy now
Please show me the way!

Remembering Mom

is one who first 
understood the reason of your cry

is one who first
knew how to calm you after cry

now that you are no more
I have stopped crying

other construe as weakness
I have stopped correcting them

now I direct inwards
as in soul you reside

you still calm me 
when drop touches you inside

with you in me
how can I ever be weak?

The Woman I Never Knew

She looked like an angel
Sitting there in her bed
Everybody loved her
She had a great sense of humor
They say I am like her
I am very honored.
She was my dear mother.

She was a very sick lady.
She had tuberculosis and stomach cancer
She left me and this old world at the age of forty-five
I was age five
Mom I love you and I miss you.

My heart is saddened, you left to soon…
Please come back to us, he started talking to the moon…
His heart can’t take the pain, he is suffering, he needs you…
He loves you so much & I love you to…

Mom, why did this happen to you…
Why did you have to pass away, everyone else who took you for granted are fools…
We cherished & loved you so much & we still do…
He is an empty soul & all happiness is gone, because you are too…

Too early for your time & age…
Our hearts are trapped in a small cage…
Ready to burst & blow up with grief…
All hope faith & joy gone with our belief…

This world is nothing without your love…
Scattered pieces of your memory remains, all to aside it was shoved…
People are cruel & mean to have taken every single thing that reminded us of you…
If it was us that could decide we would have been able to keep all till even the last shoe…

We are torn; broken & only time can heal they say…
Biggest load of bull*****they said on that day…
Forever your memory & soul will be within our hearts & mind…
Even in the dark, you were the one who always shined…

Mom, we love you…
We hope that you are safe wherever you are…
Even though we still sit with scars…
Just never forget us, not like all the others have forgotten you & moved on…

It’s only been two weeks but your soul will remain…
In our hearts you will always stay…

Survival Of The Fittest

Dropped out of school
At an early age
Lived on the streets 
Because, I disgusted my mother
She thought I was a poor example
Of true Christian beliefs
At an early age 
She religiously drummed into me
‘blood is thicker than water’
And yet, 
Here I am today confused, lonely and hungry
No one protecting me
No friends
No family
No home to go too
Just, peoples eye for an eye,
tooth for a tooth mentality
Praying for the sun to shine
To feel some warmth again!
Sun rays of hope, lighting me up
To live through this darkness without fear
With a heart full of faith
No matter what happens to me, now!
If only I could drink my salty tears
It would sustain me for a lifetime
Your tears are worth nothing, around here
You’re classed as weak and venerable
Only attracting death
Your life worth nothing!
Save me from myself
I am my best friend
I am my worst enemy
My prayers and dreams
Lost in the wind
Blowing around like autumn leaves
The rain washing them away
Down the drain into the sewage
Rolling with the seasons
Year after year
Survival for the fittest!
Surviving on the love
Hidden, inside me
Being my strength and guide
My personal lifeline
In surviving this crazy world 
We all live in

I Still Miss You Terribly

Even though you've been dead for two years, I still miss you terribly.
While you were alive, I meant a lot to you and you meant a lot to me.
You were an excellent mother and that is certainly true.
When it came to having a mom, I was proud to have you.
I still miss you terribly even though it has been twenty-seven months since you died.
Yesterday I was feeling pretty sad about your death and I damn nearly cried.
But I am feeling some better than I did just one year before.
I still miss you terribly because you're not around anymore.

[Dedicated to Agnes Johnson (1948-2013) who passed away on March 6, 2013.]

Mom I will miss you

When I was born you took me in your arms, wrap me in a blanket, took me home, and kept me from all harm.  You shared with me so much love and kindness this is why I miss you mom.   As I grew taller you kept me safe with your prayers from all danger and harm, this is why  I miss you.  As I became older when  I was sad you would take me in your arms and rock me until  I was glad, and my tears went away.  When  I became of age and ready to go out in the world to follow my dreams, you had already taught me right from wrong.  This is why I will miss you mama.  Now that I am grown, on my own and you have left to go home to be with Christ, mama I will miss you.  Christ will keep you safe in his arms from all harm, but I still love and miss you mama.

Sweetest Child Alouette

Mom you're so lovely!
Like my lil’ bunny!
Your arms are fluffy and soft;
Want to hold you more;
Makes me feel secure;
With your hands all of me oft,

Mom you're so cuddly!
Want you beside me!
Wake me up a lil’ later;
Miss you so by then;
Like I miss you when
My eyes close and you’re not there.

Mother's Day

I thought of you this morning Ma, as I do most every day.
I miss the crazy things you did, your laughter and your way.

Your sunny disposition, your optimistic light.
Remembering the songs you used to sing to us at night....zzzz

And now I must, "Get on with it", as you would like to say.
Just had to say I Love You, because it's Mothers Day.

MOM DEAREST I love you 
Wish I could hold you now
Wish I could smile with you 
Wish I could spent time with
Wish I could tease you 
Wish I could share my thoughts with you
Wish you could wipe away the tears falling in my eyes
Wish I could lie my head in your chest, hear your heart beat
Wish I could shout scream at you and you do the same to me
Wish when the sun goes down I could see you nor stand with you watching it
Death how cruel you are, you took all that I had 

All I’m left with its wishes that will never come true
Mom where ever you are
I know you are looking down on me
You are smiling on me
You wish me all the best that you could have done for me
Mom I know where you are setting you wish you were with me
I know you wish heaven had a telephone so you can just hear my voice
You want to hear me saying all is right nor wrong
Even though you are looking down on me seeing everything
You just want to hear your little angle telling you mom all is fine, mom nothing is fine

You want to hear me saying to you I LOVE YOU MOM 
You want me to kiss you
Even though all this happen but not naturally so, you want it to happen life
But I’m happy that I know where ever you are mom you love me
You know that you are my world’s greatest 
You are my hero, my strength you keep me going

I've been fightin' the pains since you passed away
It still feels unreal,
I ask God for some brighter days
and help us heal,

See we need him to keep us strong,
Me & Den your only 2 seeds
and we have to prolong & have to hold on,

In a messed up society,
Like Granny you're a sweet lady
who showered us with love & you guided me,

Through the struggles of a young man growin'up,
My momma,
You brought smiles on my jail visits
when you we're showin' up,

So i'm gonna' miss the twinle in your brown eyes
and  when you smile back,
You know we think about you day & night
and I need my best pal back,

So I will illustrate my love like yours,
With the help of the Lord,
I will breed it in your grandkids
and we love & miss you forever more.

Oh My Mom How I Miss You

I stopped to see you at your grave today.
I thought and wondered just what to say...
As I dug around and cleaned your stone.
I suddenly felt so very alone.
I played the songs on my radio,
Which played a part in your life.
Upon your stone it only says, Beloved Wife.
Six children you had, no, the seventh went home.
I just bet you're now holding, you're not alone.

I tried to remember the last memory I had.
But I kept returning to all that was sad.
I still remember that day you died...
I held your hand as my father cried.
So many things I used to do,
Like steal a flower and give it to you.
Where did you get that, Oh, never mind.
The thoughts that you had were so very kind.
You were there when I was good.
You were there when I was bad.
You corrected me the times when you should.
And now my heart is oh so sad.
I talked to you about the cancer in dad;
His lung removed and gall bladder he had.
The more I thought about all these things,
The more my heart broke.

A song came on that dad sang to you,
And as it did I sang it too.
I looked around for a flower to steal
And as I did my head began to reel.
My heart it sank to fathoms below,
I fell to my knees and wept so low.
The memories are all that I have, but for my tears,
My only salve.
I bent and kissed the plaque, on the cross.
I wondered if I'd find my way to you or be lost.
I thought of the first memory of mine,
In a hospital, I was two and doing fine.
The scarlet fever was gone and you and dad came for me.
I was so happy, as happy as can be.

I dusted the dirt away and took a hand full home.
I thought of when I might die and if I'd be alone.
My heart it ached and my eyes they wept,
I saw as I was watching with in my mind,
You and dad coming for me,
My feet, still they kept.
Your arms open wide and your faces so kind...
And again I wept...

Four years it will be that you've been away.
There is nothing more I can do or say.
I love you and miss you, my Beloved Mother.
Though dad has remarried, there will be no other...
I long to see you once again, and hold you in my arms.
In a place where there are no tears, I know I will cry...
For I will cry tears of joy to see you again.
Again my heart breaks and again I weep.
Oh, mom I miss you, but the memories I'll keep...

(Mom has been gone since 1996. Dad died almost ten years later. I still hurt inside.)

Missing You

I miss your smile
    the giggling sound.

I miss your touch

My Mother

In her womb I was conceived
Love and care I have received
Shared some air for me to breath
Protection in her beneath

Waited for me with her might
Praying for me day and night
To come out well and complete
Brace herself for tests to beat

When she has given me birth
She was joyful on all earth
She gave me a special name
She felt she was getting fame

I cannot thank her enough
Knowing what she’s done is tough
But I love her very much
Wish she’s here for me to touch

shed a tear

I shed a tear...

Each morning I open my eyes and get ready to wake you up.
I clear my eyes and shed a tear.
I make me tea you coffee.
I shed a tear.
I tell you it's time to wake up it's time to start your day.
I shed a tear.
I pull you up place the walker there for you to grab.
I shed a tear.
Throughout the day your eyes are lost.
You no longer want to move.
No longer want to be here the pain is over for you.
I'm still here. I still make my tea no coffee.
I still wake up each day and remember you my mother my pain is still here.
I shed a tear.

its been a month since you left this Earth
the pain so raw it deeply hurts
see you everyday in all I do
wasnt ready to say Good bye to you
I Look up in the sky wonder how youve been
are you enjoying the magical  place that your in?
if anyone deserves it it you Mother Dear
you continually gave to US year after year
I see in my daughter so many of your traits
we both terribly miss your welcoming face
what I wouldnt do for a few minutes alone with you
so I could say all the things I wanted too
like how much I appreciate and admire YOU
wanna hear your voice on other line saying "hey Boo"
You are my hero none one could ever compare to
WE  have a connection defines conventional ways
I feel your spirit around me EVERY day
the thought of your smile tells I am OK
someday in the clouds and sky we will embrace
we will shelter each other from the pouring rain
to feel only happiness no more PAIN
mother daughter moments like this
to special to be explained
I will love u forever
Cross my heart, hope to die
our hearts are connected
from deep inside 
i LOVE you Mom and i dearly miss you
no matter where I go or what I do
 EVERYDAY of my life I will smile
when I think of YOU
You were my angel om Earth
& someday you will be my Angel
 in the Heavens too
thats the thought that
will help get me through

a letter 2 my mom

	A letter to my mom if she could read it.

I am sorry for the times I would not listen to you and would talk back.
I loved all the times we spent together. We had so much fun together you were a great mom and you were my best friend. Some days I ask god why he let you get so sick but I realize its not gods fault that you’re sick it’s just life and some times bad things happen. Know one knows why it happened but it happened for a reason. Things happen and know one knows why it does we just have to deal with it. I miss you mom a lot some times I cry at night because I miss you so much. I just wish you could come home. It hurts to see you so sick I wish it could all go away. Hope one day you come home I all ways try to go see you at the hospital at least twice a week. Mom I am really sorry how I wouldn’t listen and I talked back. I wish we could turn back time and you wouldn’t be sick. I cry just by writing this letter to you. I just can’t believe you might not be able to ever come home. You won’t be able to see me go to prom or get married if I ever do. Mom I just want you home but that won’t happen you’re to sick and I hope a miracle happens and you get better and come home. Some days I feel like I cant make it through the day but I just remember your spirit and love will all ways be with me every day and you’re always in my heart. I all ways cry when I think about you. When you were sick I dyed my hair purple, blue, hot pink, red, and aqua. People still make fun of me and say I am weird but it’s ok. There is  so much things I want to say but I don’t know how to just know I am sorry for how I treated you. I MISS YOU MOM AND LOVE YOU!!

The cycle of life would have ceased to exist,
 if there were no mothers.
Hard working they are,
Good discipliners they are,
Doctors and caregivers they are.
Praises I give to all mothers 
through all their days,
They’ve raised and fed the world always.
Light they are to the darkness of life,
To husbands they’ve become good wives.
All mothers should be honored, 
and venerated,
For these days they have been daunted.
Husband or Wife? 
Yes!!  You can get another,
But you can’t get another mother.
So let’s know and show our gratitude,
And let their very reward be in multitude.

Try not to cry...

I just thought I'd say
I love you NOT goodbye
I will miss you dearly
I will TRY not to cry
I will never forget our talks
Conversations on the phone
How well  u understood ME
With YOU I was never alone
Just to be in your presence
That was my comfort zone
You worried so much about me
This time SO worried for YOU
I know this is the HARDEST thing
I have ever had to do
Now I will stand up and fight
To bring this injustice into the light
Gonna give it my all Mom
Because that's what is RIGHT
I know you'll always be with me
Wherever I will go
No one needs to show me
In my heart I'll always KNOW
I don't know what to do Mom
I never thought I'd loose you
Where I'll go from here?
I still haven't got a clue
All I know for SURE
Is that EVERY day I MISS U
I hope you'll watch over me
Be my guiding light
Giving me the strength I need
To win this endless fight
You're my guardian angel Mom
You have been all my life
So selfish wasn't ready for you
to walk the path of eternal life
I miss the mundane little things
You have  rightfully earned your Angel Wings
many things I would say if only given the chance
Instead forced to deal w this unfortunate circumstance
I don't want to say goodbye
But we'll meet again someday
Its the ONLY thought that helps
ME make it through each day

Morbid Mornings

To be awake and leave the warmth of nourishing night,
only to be covered by the cold cloak of demanding death
where even summer sun reflects from me in rejection.

Every breakfast, the reaper drinks from my heart.
The crimson cup of happiness and joy of liquid past.
He empties the goblet, now locked in my ribs.

My body, a closed coffin, vacant of emotion and fantasy.
My brain, a grey growing web with the spider of suicide,
spinning thoughts of ending the day by becoming dust.

How can I live through another long hollow hour
without companionship or communication where
the only face I see is mine in front of the mirror?

To watch my parents dissolve from a couple to a photograph
where they rest in my palm with the same captured expression,
and their voices sing a lost song that repeats in my head.

The only recourse remains that I must recruit myself into
a knight for the needy and harness my hurricane of pain
into soft rain, allowing the suffering and myself to smile again.
