Unforgettable

Infectious smile
Hearty laughter
Jester, teaser
My heart so warms
Wanting to be sad
Instances unpredictable
Yet somewhere there is freedom
For both you and me
My spirit knows you’re in peace
My living form still wants you near
As days pass I learn
I can still have joy
Joys we both made
My gratitude eases the pain
My humility allows acceptance
From my depth emerge answers
Not all that are alive are living
Not all that are dead are gone
But if we are truly One
Then it must be
That if I live
Then you must too
And so, brother
My heart continues to beat ♥️

Sweet then Bitter

blog contrast

“The world is your oyster!”
Dreams conjured
Plans made
Postcards collected
Then back to one’s home.
All sweet then bitter!

Hormones rage
Partners sought
Love verses lust
Longing verses loneliness.
All sweet then bitter!

Babies birthed
Milestones achieved
Proud parent smiles
Then empty nested
All sweet then bitter!

Through all the times
Day granted after day
Opportunities new and fresh
All sweet on sweet!!

Good times, bad times
Endurance mustered
Light conquering darkness
Hate surpassed by kindness
All sweet on sweet!!

Whatever the journey
Memories are made
Relations are forged
And legacies remain.
All sweet on sweet!!

And all the while
A timeless piece
Awaits its turn
To be uncovered.

Have you found your ‘sweet’?
Unwrap yourself a little
All sorted soft centers
Await your discover,
Making the transient painless
And the essence of meaning constant
For here lies the sweetest of sweet!!!
