I AM ADRIFT

 

I am alone

I cannot touch

Bound by doubt

I do miss much

“You should believe”

They say to me

I say, “I cannot

Unless I see”

You have yours

And I have mine

You kneel in prayer

I only stare

I know I should

You’re probably right

Believe as you do

Believe in might

There’ll come a day

A place and time

When it might make sense

To me and mine

But, until then

I’ll float alone

Until then

A rolling stone

SLEEP SOLIDER SLEEP

Again the world

Sees the sad

Again the world

Feels the bad

We heard the news

About our loss

We heard again

About our cost

She is taken

From us here

He is taken

From us I fear

They serve

And fight

To protect

Our right

I weep and kneel

On bended knee

I pray for them

I pray to thee

Open the gates

Their soul to keep

Open my heart

Sleep solider sleep

 

-peace


MY HEART NEEDS A REST

I wish I could just rest my heart.

Just take it out of my body, place it in a silk lined box inside of an ice-filled Igloo cooler.

Gently put “my heart container” at the foot of my bed and relax for tonight.

Lay down and close my eyes. Let sleep take me over. My breathing would be controlled and steady paced. Bones and blood would be at ease. For once, I would not have to think or worry about my heart and how hard it works just to keep me, ME.

Yeah, take it out, because while my heart is inside of me, my sleeping is keeping me awake.

Yeah, this is the way to go.

And yes I did exactly all that last night.

I went into my garage and found my favorite red cooler.

Heart – box – ice – cooler – peaceful sleep.

Yet when I awoke this morning to the sound of her vacuuming the bedroom floor, I almost died.

It seems she felt the need to throw out that old beat up red Igloo cooler.

Yelling at me,“WHAT THE HELL IS THIS DIRTY THING DOING IN HERE?”

REHAB THIS

 

There is a place

Known by few

It’s run by those

And their point of view

I was sent here

To pay for my sin

I’m okay with that

So let’s begin

To those outside

And what they see

This place is here

To rehab me

But that’s not true

It’s far from real

There’s no rehabbing

Its pride they steal

The little things

Of day to day

They know we have

They take away

I wish someone

Would tell me why

My time spent here

Makes a better I

 

-Peace


I’LL START THE LIVING

 

There are things

In this life

That give me hope

That gives me strife

It’s not for me

Or you to say

Will there be good

Or bad today

I open my eyes

I’m ahead of the game

Now hear your voice

Call out my name

I take these moments

These little things

I wear them like

Big diamond rings

My smile now pure

And full of truth

I take a deep breath

I fill with youth

I must take

What I am given

I’ll stop the dying

I’ll start the living

 

-Peace

Wash all cancer away

A misty kiss and a puff of wind

Cradle us in angel wings

Strong so we may soar

THE MOTHER IN ME

 

It wasn’t long

Before I knew

That the mother in me

Is the mother in you

How you held me tight

On my very first day

From the moment we met

From the things you say

I grew up fast

I grew up strong

You were there

For me all along

When my way was lost

Or when I fell

No need for words

You could always tell

Even today

While we’re apart

My life complete

With you in my heart

So, as I write

This poem to you

Remember this mom

Every word is true

 

 

 

ALL YOU DO

 

I think it’s fair

That you should know

That all you do

Sets hearts aglow

You are the one

Who does their best

You’re always there

And never rest

To be an aunt

Mom or dad

To be the one

She’s always had

As I watch

This from afar

I must admit

How good you are

They’ll always say

She pulled it thru

They’ll always say

Great things of you

So as I end

This tale to you

You should be proud

Of all you do

 

 

THE GOOD IN YOU

 

I used to think

I used to feel

That what I do

Makes it real

But looking at you

And the way you are

Confirms you’re real

And real by far

We shouldn’t boast

Or brag at all

But just the same

You should stand tall

You have a gift

That others need

I wish I had

That gift to feed

So please go on

And fight the fight

It is in your strength

That HE delights

It is my wish

And of others too

That you also feel

The good in you

 

-Peace
