Westward Ho

The great vision filled them with need,
Extraordinary journey laying ever ahead.
Necessity in knowing unknown wonders.
So so many perish along the hard path,
Still they’re driven by westward vision,
Death but one of the heavy challenges.
Hot dry plains, mountain tu airless sky,
Snow wagon deep as do vision yet call,
Until there, yon valley spreading wide,
Out new homes an Earth born paradise,
Demands met, vision fulfilled, we rest,
For now our new great futures to build…

Left Behind

Agonizing pain,
This vast emptiness,
Forlorn host now lost,
How do I now to go on,
How do I dare to continue,
Only yesterday future bright,
The whole of tomorrows entice,
Yet today vision now dark and lost,
Where have you journeyed to alone,
Why for am I left here in pensive pain,
Reaching out I find you not,
Ever searching still you’re lost,
Calling and hearing only the silence,
Pleading but no answer to spring forth,
How now do I continue without my best part,
They say to make peace,
Tell me to let memories dim,
Assure me this pain too shall pass,
But I know well their misunderstanding,
They cannot will-not ever know the truth,
Me empty shell left here while she’s gone home,
Why to continue onward all alone?

Drifting Memories

Art and Words to settle my mind

An End, or a New Beginning

Waiting
The end so near, but it does not come
Anticipation, a longing to at last go home
This unbearable agony, need left far behind
Stepping forward on the next step of my journey
Excitement for the newest of futures to come

And yet, here I sit…

Waiting
The end so near, but it does not come
Anticipation, a longing to at last go home
This unbearable agony, needs left far behind
Stepping forward on the next step of my journey
Excitement for the newest of futures to come

And yet, here I set…
Is there reason, must be, need be
Something yet to do, task incomplete, work unfinished
More unknown, laid out in need of my skills
A helping to be offered, another someone in need
I need to know, desperately, for weary I be

I look within for answers, finding not
Reaching to the Creator, only silence returned
I ask help, yet no hand is thrust forward
Feeling lost, abused, abandoned, alone again
Would I beg, plead, cry out in my shame
Alas, I fear but another voice, lost to the night

So I sit here, waiting
All agony, pain, and despair
Hope but a memory, Alone…

Taken

Memories flood, heart bleeds,
So much loss, destiny at an end,
She was such beauty, soul shining,
Now gone still, my very life with her,
This waste of glory, caste away rubbish,
How do I hope to recover, my failure too great,
My perfection of partner, my very core of being,
They’ve taken her away, I left empty. All now alone,
I so need her, want her, make our love as once was,
But she’s gone…

Painful Reminders

Two in-twined with love,
Body, mind, and souls one,
Their light shining in dark city,
Togetherness spreading beauty,
Can there be more a more on high,
And I, tears flowing, sit still in solidarity,
Loneliness being my existence, my world,
To see them living my dreams, highest need,
Still alone I am, lost within with a core of despair,

Return

I held her as a life fulfilled,
I knew her as the all I ever needed,
I want her so, I’m lost with her absence,
I reach for her, finding only empty spaces,
I called for her hearing only echoing silence,
I dream of her finding only lost lonely memories,
Come back my love, return for my loving arms to hold,
Come embrace me once again, share this my unending love,
Come refill this emptiness That burns in my heart of hearts,
Come change this shadowed life back to the light of the joyous,
Return to me, break free of your deadly end, return my very world,
