Archives For Life and Death

I head towards the tunnel

Fear settles inside me

It’s a long walk to the other side

I’m uncertain as to what awaits me

I’ve been told that all will be ok

But I only have their word

Should I trust them

What other choice do I have

With each step I tremble a little bit more

My legs feel like jello

My heart beats faster and faster

I enter almost on cue

My escort leads me to my maker

With a grin he greets me and happily says

I’m sorry to see you so soon

But I’m glad you’ve made it home

A sigh of relief is before me

All my fears melt away

Suddenly I feel a sense of belonging

No longer must you worry

for now I will be ok

I’m finally here to stay

Are we alone here?©


We tell ourselves we’re not alone

But the truth is

Who else can really understand the pain we feel

When you find you no longer have control of your life

When you have to battle for each next breath

When you don’t know what will work won’t work

When you can only hope and pray for a miracle

You know you are truly alone

No one can feel what you feel

They can’t understand what lies ahead

You fight the fear without knowing why

You just don’t want to give up

You want to fight until your very last breath

If you fight hard enough you might just will away the sickness

Before the end comes near

and you just disappear into the never ending darkness

Know that you’re strong enough to fight the fight

and beat the beast who brings you fear

We may be alone in thought

But we are never truly alone

I will give when I’m ready

and I’ll take when I’m ready

I’ll leave when I’m done

I’ll get to know you better

So that maybe I can love you better

I’ll sport a smile more often

I’ll even make an attempt to laugh at more of your jokes.

The land above and the land below

Death knocks at the door of the wicked

Death knocks at the door of the innocent

Spirits beckon for answers but no one responds

Can you hear me they call out

They’re lost in the swirls of deception

No one comes to lead them to destiny

Wait, an angel appears for the innocent

A creature of sorts for the wicked

The good go up

And the wicked go down

Promises made

Promises broken

No one is certain what lies ahead now

Stories told

May not be the life you are now living

Stay honest

Stay true

Only good can come to you

Here or there

Sins still follows

Best beware

Someones still always watching

Both in the land above

and the land below


The land above and the land below

Into the Light I Go

To all those I love and to who have loved me

I’ve lived a life full of grace

Filled with all that I had hoped to do and see

There may have been a few things left undone

But worry not, for I will not

Life’s been good for I had you in it

Life was hard, but now I can rest

I take with me all your love

That will comfort me while I’m gone

I look to you to live your lives

With love and fond memories

Not grief and sadness

Life is precious

Don’t waste time on things lost

Work to make a change and bring happiness to others

I’ll be here watching to see that you are ok

The light will protect and guide me as hope to do for you too

Here Into the Light I Go

This Life

We are lucky to come into this world

To take part in the opportunity of life

We often take this gift for granted

Not realizing how short our time could be

Forgetting to appreciate each moment

Making memories good or bad creates history

Life, past, present and future

For all those we love

Life will come and life will go

The time may be known but most often unknown

Take each moment and hold it tight

Keep those memories close

But don’t be afraid to make more

Give life to the unknown

Don’t live crippled by fear

Life comes once that you’ll remember

So don’t be afraid to live it

But always appreciate the gift you’ve been given

Take care of it, nurture it’s growth until its end

I’ll always hold close to “This Life”

Thank you for letting me be here in this place

Able to love, be loved,

To laugh, cry and hope

I dedicate this poem to a friend that shared news with me

yesterday. I could have lost her, I’m glad I didn’t. She had

a surgery that ultimately saved the life she has. We are

graced with her continued presence here on this earth for

that I’m grateful as I’m grateful for all of our lives. Enjoy each

moment of your life!

World Peace

world peace

The end of poverty


The end of homelessness

The end of racism


The end of death and dying

The end of un-involved parents

The end of violence


The end discrimination

m and m colors

True equal rights for all

native american equal rights people equal rights

These are all the things I wish for

Angels in the Sky

Today I sat in my kitchen baking

A glow from the window caught my eye

From this glow came some flashes

These flashes were memories of those close to my heart

My dear grandmother Mucha knitting in her favorite chair

My brother Johnny playing hockey with his friends

My friends Magdalena and Gabriela telling stories of their childhood

My husband Kris telling old war stories about his friends

These flashes I hold close to me sent from the angels up above

Each time the light gleams through my window

I hope for more memories

So I will again sit in my kitchen

Baking again waiting for those flashes

Flashes from the Angels get me through thick and thin

A Cape Cod cancer patient’s clinical trial has been put on hold because of the government shutdown.

Leo Finn should have been getting a bone scan and signing paperwork for a clinical test Wednesday.

His liver cancer is no longer responding to conventional chemotherapy. Doctors at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute were ready to move to the new treatments.

Now, everything is on hold because Food and Drug Administration is shutdown. The agency has to sign off on the clinical trial.

Finn and his wife, Kimberly, say it’s “a matter of life and death” and the irresponsible actions of elected officials is “outrageous and unfair.”

“Where is the FDA? On the golf course? Do we have the track them down there?” Finn asked.

Finn was to have begun the new treatment next week.

“I am angry. This is my husband’s life,” Kimberly Finn said.

The couple has three children. Kim Finn said their children just want their dad to live.
