I saw you both today

September 27, 2014

I saw my Grandfather today
After all these years buried away
I lost my Grandmother today
Saying goodbye in the saddest way.

I missed them both today
By their grave side in dismay.
I said goodbye today
Sealed in their final way.

I loved them both for years
Helping cure my childhood fears.
I miss them both with tears
Remembering fondly all the good years.

I said goodbye today
I don’t know any other way.
I’ll love you both for all my years.
I miss you much, from my tears.

Death

Death
The only thing
That can,
And will,
Rob every man
Finally came
Last night
To steal
From you
What you
Spent years
Wasting away.

Last Night

August 26, 2012

Last night
I gazed into the sky
And saw the moon
Last night
I silently cried
Life ended so soon.

Last night
I saw where you stood
And I just knew.
Last night
I realized I could
Touch the moon too.

Last night
I said a payer
For your soul
Last night
I was aware
Your life was so full.
