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?

Stories from the Past

With fear and trepidation I slip in,
The screams of mystery wash ore,
Ghostly stories of times long past,

There is pain here, suffering, yearning,
Tension fills the very air, I need to know,
Carefully listening, I need hear their voice,

In opening myself, visions begin to flow,
Odd bits spread across the floor bring hints,
Dimmest of light glimmers, bringing focus import,
Understanding comes slow, brief glimmers revealed,

So lost, so hidden, yet meaning comes to mind,
And with meaning the hidden brings understanding,
So, relaxed, I sit back, take it all in, and begin to learn,
Only need patience, resisting judgment, and simply allow,

Found Within

The of greatest virtue,
Follow only the One truth,
The One resides within, as unity,
Allow other to lead, indistinct, unclear,

So unclear, so indistinct
Within ourselves there is knowing,
Ever distinct, ever His so much clarity,
Within ourselves we find His true substance,
Deep and profound, as we were created to be,
Within us all we can know His truest essence,

Essence of the most supreme reality,
Within Him we can place all our faith,
From ancient times to the present, He is,
Whatever man’s name for Him, never to depart,
Open yourself to observe the source of all things,
How else are to know the true nature of the Source,

Smoke and Wine

This mind numbing Calliope of silence,
Echoing shadows dancing across my world,
Unanswered questions no longer seeking light,
Is this it, all that is left to me, the end of my dreams,
Optimistically turning from the gloomy trend,
I take another drink, light anther fag,
And dose with a sheepish smile…

Shining Soul

As my memories wane and fail,
The vision of your beauty grows,
As I knew the joyous young child,
I can now see a mature loving women,
Imagination fills the greatest gaps of time,
I perceive the happy times, the struggles, family,
Rewarding path of bringing the children to bloom,
Satisfaction at a job well done, life well lived fully,

I envy you my dear old friend…
