~ Death Holds No Victory Here…


~ Death Has No Victory
We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad, 

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors 

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answeres

When foreign thought induces groans
And what of the songs 

Our lips happily sing

Though not in native tongue

To young ones sleeps it brings
And eyes of such depth

Tell more then what is seen

Bits and pieces of our ancestors 

Look back in glistened beam
Think not when dead, buried

They are forever gone

Look upon your family’s ways

Their presence still lives on

Family tree stands tall

Some branches no longer exist

Shoots of new ones, little ones

~ Giant of A Man


~ Giant of a Man
A dream took me to childhood places

Love and laughter, forgotten faces
But the memory of Father standing tall

While leaning against the kitchen wall

Woke me with great surprise 

Tears of mourning, laughter filled my eyes
Recalling his polished black Oxford shoes

His black leather belt trimmed in blues

Tiny feet from a girl aged four

Danced with Daddy across the floor
While standing on his Oxford shoes

And holding his belt of black and blues

Looking up I said, “Daddy you’re a giant man”

And he tossed me as only a Daddy can
Up, up towards the ceiling I went

Four or five times til his energy spent

But I’ll never forget that fun filled day

Of giggles, laughter and Daddy at play
I was fifty-five when Daddy passed on –

He was still catching me, when life had gone wrong.

Love laced lullabies

Slats softly keeping rhythm

Rocking chair hours

~ Priceless Gifts


Here

My child,

Take

This water…

This seed…

God has already provided Earth

Now, grow.

~ Mother Lies Here…


  
“Mother lies here, and nothing has ever been the same; God bless the Mothers who remain – hug them a little closer this season,when they’re gone, so too the rhyme, the reason… as life, less your biggest fan, leaves an emptiness none understand, until they stand, alone”… O’Prunty
