Elegy to an Infant
Death has taken you now so far away.
Now you have taken on an angel's form.
Heavenly Father has the final say.
Although on earth here we are left to moan.

To rouse my anesthetized sail from slumber,
Sutured wounds crack open, oozing fresh flood
As the pain of yesterday visit suddenly
-drawing rivulets from sunken eyes.
Blind eyes...Read More
