Simply life

You are the flower
Sewing seeds upon this world
Giving life
Where emptiness had been found.
Heart laid bare
Surviving the days
Moving forward
Regaining the semblance of order
When needed most.
I come to you
Words trying to convey calm
As I feel you hold me from behind
Tears falling free
No judgement just raw emotion
And the fear that is spoken
I cast aside
As I am not ready yet to let this moment pass,
The feel of you holding me
An adult yet still the child
Hanging on to composure
Not letting you see
The tipping point of tears,
No, not yet,
This is not the time
For goodbyes,
Just a simple life I love you
From daughter to mother.
We’ve been down this road before,
Strewn with the silence of tomorrow,
Holding back to go the distance,
As you sat by my side,
Chemicals invading each inch
As red poison flowed through
You held my hand
You were the strength
You were there simply being you.
I will be there
Not deserting my post
To hold your hand or dry your tears
To be the one this time round,
Simply life moments
That come and go for each of us,
Just a simple love from the deepest wells
Full of wishes.
Tomorrow will dawn clear,
Sunshine will come and bestow the gifts
Of bigger and better days
And we will be there together,
Walking your garden
And plucking a bloom,
Reveling in the beauty of this life,
Grateful for the simplicity
Of a love born so long ago
That nothing,
Not even time or age
Can ever destroy.

The joy of friendship

Words read from another world
Oceans away the voice on paper
Fills the soul with smiles.
To shelter the heart with kindness
And sweeping away the rain with the sun,
The umbrella of love held
To warm the soul with the gift
Of friendship.
The star’s light nights
With the show of universal beauty
Twinkling with the need
For wishes to be spoken aloud,
The thoughts of belief
The mystery of dreams
And the fairies woods alive
With mirth and joy.
The dance of this life
Spinning round
Hands held like children,
Hearts filled with the touch
And kindness of friends.

Color burst

Distant vision
Color burst in green forest
Like a hundred orange butterflies
Congregating on one branch,
Tangerine party
Like a foreign team visiting
They signal days coming and
Changes filled with beauty.
Sun breaks through
Illuminating the shades
Standing out front
The actor on stage,
Taking a bow before retreating
To the ground below
One by one falling,
Kaleidoscope shades
Carpet of fall.
