I hope that you're somewhere

I hope that you're somewhere a daughter can find you
I hope that it's near enough, warm enough, sweeter
these nights I could handle with you as my candle
I hope that your laugh still leaves ripples behind you
so I can still feel them whenever it's raining
and follow the path that had always aligned you
with all mighty mothers with such mighty shoulders
and God, how the weight of it all can remind you
that motherhood dwells in the wings of the theater
with you as my candle these nights I could handle
I'll find my own light although no flame outshined you

When You Die - Just Stating The Obvious Poetry Contest

When you die
You are gone
It's goodbye

No one stays
On this earth
For all days

It is said
Past is past
Dead is dead

Done is done
And for whom?
Everyone

You won't know
When it's your
Time to go

Need I say?
That's the world
That's the way

That's the trade
That's the rule
No one made 

So come on
Live your life
'Fore it's gone
