My Poem of the Day


The Waiting Room©

Sitting quietly among strangers
In a room brightly lit
Plain and simple and totally sterile
There’s no cheer or personal touches
Fearful faces fill the room
Worried about their impending doom
What more do they have to lose
All of them yearning for some love and affection
I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes
If only I could fix my own ailing conditions maybe just maybe
I wouldn’t be so afraid to be sitting among all the fearful strangers
With the long sad faces
Here in this plain and simple and totally sterile waiting room

My ThrowBack Thursday Poem of the Day


Tanisha Alicia and Seth 1995

That Was Then, This Is Now©

20 Years ago

How time flies

You’re bigger and smarter now

Doing your own thing

You carry yourselves well

You’ve accomplished great things

And you make me proud

Looking back at your smiling faces

So much worry and wonder

As the years passed

All my prayers were answered

A mother will always worry

I worried then and I still worry now

That will never change

One thing is certain

20 years have come and gone

My love for you then is even stronger now

There is no one and nothing that could ever come between us

My three amigos

I’m sure I’ll tell your story at least once again

Thank you for all that’s been and for all that’s yet to come

My Poem of the Day



Strange Faces©

In a room full of strange faces

I know none of what they are thinking or where they have been
I know nothing of their dreams or the pain they might be in
Expressions upon their face as they sit waiting
Are the faces of those so lonesome and sad
Some so tired their feelings remain unknown
Because their faces blankly fall
There is both doubt and fear in us all
Whenever uncertainty lies near
We just wish we could disappear
Our faces give clues about
What might ale us
But we are full of guesses
When we try to see their faces
And get to know more about them
Only to find that they just want to ignore us
Because they just don’t trust us
And they’re just going to duck us
Because they don’t want to trust us
So we have no choice but to walk away
From those strange faces

My Poem of the Day


Without You©

When I’m home alone at night without you

There is no sleep for me once the night falls

The stars seem to missing from the sky


The moon appears to be missing

The darkness closes in


I fear the emptiness that’s upon me

The kids are fast asleep

Only the echoes in our old house to keep me company

A storm hits

The blustering winds

Sends howling throughout the house

I feel madness knocking at the door

Lightning lights up the room

Your pictures stairs at me from across the room

I suddenly miss you more than before

The phone rings

I reach out to grab the phone

Instead there you are

And I’m back in your arms once again

No longer here without you

My Poem of the Day


My Time is Not for Wasting©

People close to me know who I am

They both see and know my pain

They will never hear a complaint

Because I don’t believe in complaining

I believe

If something aches, tend to it

If something is broken, fix it

If someone no longer cares about you, let them go

I focus on all those I love and all the things I love

I make time and I take time for all that matters

Leaving all else behind

So if you hope to have some time with me

Make sure you are worth it

I don’t want either of us to be disappointed

If I had a dime for each time someone

Told me “it will be worth your time”

I’m certain I would be a millionaire thrice over

My Poem of the Day


The Words That Spill©

The Words That Spill

Flow freely from my tongue

 I have no control

My mind works all on its own

I need my mind more than it needs me

It can find a home anywhere

But for me that mind is the only one I want

So the words it feeds me I share with you

Sometimes you’ll like them


Sometimes you won’t know what to do

With the words that spill freely from my tongue

I don’t mean to hurt you

I don’t want to see you cry

 It’s about time that I got some control

Over these words that spill too freely

If only I knew where to begin

My Poem of the Day


The Reaper©

No space

No time

No light

Only darkness

Thoughts start to wander about inside your head

Some good

Some bad

Time heals most wounds

Just not all wounds

When pain gets too bad

With think of change

Decisions, decision, decisions

No more

Your time is up

Our deal is done

You missed your goal

You only get so many chances

Now luck has run out for you

It’s time to give up your soul

It’s best not to put up a fight

Because either way

You’ve lost the fight

No matter what you do

No matter where you go

I’ll be at every turn

So say your goodbyes

And come my way

Come easily

And I’ll make your stay

As pleasant as it could be
