A Cloudy Lens
The routes I travel are winding with many bumps in the road.
There is no clear view of my life on this map. I follow a
compass which often leads to the unknown. When I
arrive at my destination I am relieved.
What direction should I pursue next?
My lens is blurry and I can not see the big picture
I am supposed to embrace, and it's okay.
Alone at Night
My heart is very heavy and my body feels like lead.
I can barely lift myself out of bed. The whites of my eyes
are blood shot red. Alone at night because half of me is dead.
The sky is black and the full moon shines bright what
a beautiful picture of this sleepless night.
I stare at the sky for a very long while and
wonder how I’m going to raise my fatherless child.
I gaze into the woods from my patio and sneer, as
my heart rate increases from fear and my cheeks are burning from the
salty tears. Am I alone tonight or is his spirit here?
I throw my hands over my head in despair because
for almost two decades we were an inseparable pair.
I miss his leadership, advice and direction, but most of all I miss
his love and affection. Alone at night is a terrible fright. God please
give me strength to believe in the words I write.
Be strong! Drive on! Even though he is gone!
With time my heart will heal and I can move on.
Alone at night, falling to sleep I fight.
Will I ever believe in these words I recite?.
A Mother A Role-Model A Friend
I gave you hard times more often than not. When you ask me
to do things I forgot. Big sister clean the house Oh no not me!
Delegation is the key. I ordered my siblings around and
treated them like slaves. They were all very happy
when I got engaged.
A Mother, A Role Model A Friend and then…
The harder you worked, the harder I worked against you.
The more you gave, the more I took. The longer
you studied the more I hate books. From infancy
through adolescent years and even now as an adult,
you always assist me in obtaining positive results.
A Mother A Role Model A Friend again and again…
You are someone with a strong shoulder to cry on.
The one I have most relied on. You ask so little in return and
voice your opinions stern. You are bright, charming,
and witty, educated, stylish and pretty You are more
strong than you are weak even when a situation looks
bleak. You came from humble beginnings and you
deserve love and happiness with all the trimmings.
You turn my frown upside down. You are an absolute joy
to be around You always have my back when I fall off track.
A Mother A Role Model A Friend to the end…
Thank you for keeping a roof over my head.
Thank you for coming home at night to tuck me
in bed. Thank you for the food you kept in my tummy
even when it wasn’t always yummy. Thank you for believing I am able,
Thank you for playing board games with me at
the kitchen table. You got me up every Sunday
for church and every Monday through Friday for school
and I thought you were cruel. You even got me up
on Saturdays to do my chores. Thank you most of all
mommy for kissing my boo-boos and bandage sores.
I love you.
