The Ones I Love written and edited by Lea Pidgeon

The Ones I Love
THIS HURTS
I've been run over by a jeep
I’ve smashed in the mouth with a bat
had a fractured eye socket
multiple face fractures
whole left side of my face fractured and swollen
nose crushed, broken, and broken again
BUT THIS HURTS
my heart is breaking
all my life has been on the roads less travelled
I've met hundreds, I dare say thousands of people
only a handful I've  called friends, kindred souls
the ones I love
why 
why
why do i lose the ones I love
lose them forever
I always lose the ones I really love

THIS HURT IS TOO PAINFUL
run me over, shoot me, shove me off a cliff
anything
just stop this heart hurt
it's gonna break for good someday
a heart can only break so many times

This poem was inspired by, and is dedicated to Larry Gibb
7/22/51 to 12/13/11
He possessed the National Defense Service Medal as well as the Vietnam Campaign Medal 
Also dedicated to my sister Renee Keller deceased 1/24/12
And now I’m also dedicating it to my Brother-In-Law Key Standlee deceased 6/19/2013
He was a Navy, Vietnam War Veteran, and retired Corrections Officer, and new proud Grampa

I had to open a new account and can't get to my poems unless I Google myself.

My Home

so damp
so depressing
I came out today
ohhhh how good it feels
the sun
the blue skies
decorated and painted
the gentle caress of God's breath
speaking to me 
through the swaying trees
how could i have forgotten
even for a moment
the beauty of God's art
the peaceful loving earth
created just for me
