Sky-High, Looking Down on You©

I soar overhead

Looking down on all that you do

I see some scurry on their way to work

Others are off to school

I see old man Parker sitting on his porch stoop

All the pigeons gather with their beaks out

Waiting for their morning bread

Mr. Lee opens up his market

Placing fruits and vegetables outside his door

Officer Bill walks his morning beat

And Lucy’s out for her morning jog

All these things I miss

Now that I soar in the sky-high above you

I feel displaced here in limbo

Hoping for something different from what I now have

More like I was use too so long ago

If only it was yesterday

And all could be done again

Maybe, just maybe

I’d be back there with you again

Until then I stay sky-high, looking down on you

Each of us bound to the life that’s been chosen for us

Our fate is marked when we take our first breath

We are all innocent when first we arrive

We must be careful when choosing which road to take

All that we see may not be as it seems

Choices must be made with care

For they will determine  which road you will take

Opinions can’t be made solely on what is seen

We will have to live up to expectations of all those watching over us

Our schooling will prepare us for the career we hope to obtain

Our religion or beliefs will guide us morally

Love and friendship will handle the rest

As long as you stay true to who and what you want to be

Life should go your way

Nothing will come easy

Hard work reaps reward

Be thankful and grateful for each day

Show compassion and understanding to those who struggle

Struggle to find their way as you have found yours

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know you

Today I sat in my kitchen baking

A glow from the window caught my eye

From this glow came some flashes

These flashes where 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

My Poem of the Day

(09/22/14)

A Mother Lost©

A mother loves her child

Through thick and thin

Inside and Out

The question is

Does she love herself the same

Mother and child

Two peas in a pod

Filled with laughter

Filled with hope

Lending a hand wherever it’s needed

Giving smiles a mile long with hugs that comfort

A mothers job is never done

A mothers job is never easy

Sometimes the toll it takes goes unseen

Sometimes the wounds just won’t heal

Sometimes there’s no more running and no more hiding

Sometimes those who vowed to protect her just can’t do what it takes to save her

So feeling she no longer has a choice

She thinks it best to leave this place

The Place she’s called home

With those she’s dedicated her life to

But she chooses to leave without them

Including her child

The one she adores

The one she vowed to protect at any cost

Maybe, just maybe

She felt this what was best

So now she’s gone

Seated high above with the angels

Looking down on her child

Hoping to be forgiven

For what she felt was right

Believing things would be better

A mother will always do anything

To protect those she loves

This mother was lost

But now she’s found

High in the sky

Just glance up above and you may see her

She’s the one with the bubbly laugh

And the smile that doesn’t quit

This poem is dedicated to a friend of mine who passed away recently.

She leaves behind her loving son and new husband. May she find her peace in the sky above.


My Poem of the Day

If You Leave©

If you leave

I may laugh I may cry

Not because it’s funny

It’s because you left me here on my own

With no direction

No plan in place

All my dreams were meant to be partnered with you

Now I have to find new ones that don’t include you

If I cry

It’s because I’m lonely without you

My life has been all about you

There’s never been another that makes me see myself as you did

I fear that I will lose myself from within

That I will slip into the darkness

Never to be seen again

My emotions get the best of me

So the best I can do for my own survival

I to push the reset button and begin again without you

Erase the memory of what we once were together

Letting go of everything

Allowing myself to try something different

With someone other than you

This is what’s to come

Here is a little music of the same name by a great band to go with my poem.

OMD is an amazing band that I still love to this day.

My Poem of the Day

(08/29/14)

Your Hand

Feelings of regret

Wishing I had listened

That I had heard your cries

That I was there to hold your hand

In sickness and in health

Through thick and thin

I should have been there

But I let work get in the way

I couldn’t put my foot down

I didn’t demand the time off

And I slowly let you slip away

And now that you’re gone

I sit here alone in the darkness

No more work

Worse than that

No more you

Now left not knowing

Where to turn

What to do

My apologies fall on deaf ears

The only opinion that matters is yours

And you can no longer hear me

Life will never be the same

I feel I may go insane

If only I could find a way

To turn back the clock

And

Just hold your hand
