The ground shook
The sky turned black
The sound is deafening.
Each night we pray
To live another day
And each day we try to dodge the bullets.
They drop their bombs
And when the smoke clears
The stench of death lingers in the air.
He was a tall man with a big built
He reminded me of a well built building
I was too young to know, what struggles he went through
In my father’s eyes he was the strict parent,
In mine he was a gentle giant.
I can’t remember if I hugged him enough
Or told him I loved him
But I have fond memories of him, no matter how few.
He didn’t speak much but he gave me boundless unspoken love.
He had big hands
They were hard working hands
They were also the one’s that disciplined my dad
But those same hands guarded me and I remember they were rough but gentle.
Those hands, they guided me more than I ever would have thought.
Under starry skies his smile fills my head
I see him in my mind and take it all in
I remember seeing him look my way
Then he went away
Outside he appeared to be jolly
Inside he was feeling hollow, empty
He could feel something creeping in his mind
It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind
He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it
But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it
Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see
It took over him so his life he took a finality
He bowed his head and there himself he hanged
The darkness he could no longer withstand
I love you
I just want to say
I never got the chance to really tell you.
I love you
And wished I told you sooner
So I tell the wind to tell you
I love you
Yes, I do love you
Her voice was hoarse
She felt weak
She was getting tired
But then she heard
So she awoke
And found they were crying
She didn’t understand why
Because just before her eyes opened
She felt only the most peaceful sleep
Why would you go?
Why would you leave?
What can I do?
What can I give?
It breaks my heart
I can’t make you stay
And so I cry
And I just pray
Until that time
That you and I will meet again
If I were to have my way
If it were as easy as one, two, three
I’d pick you at any given day
Yes, that easy, just you and me
But I have a long, long way to go
A year is still so far off
And just so you know
It’s not meant as a scoff
Or to tell you I won’t wait
Because you are worth every minute
Worth to be my future mate
My future, yes! I see you in it!
But it’s not yet time
I can’t call you mine, not yet
If you’re not the one though,
I will no longer search
I won’t look
Because if it’s time, whoever he is will find me
I just hope it is you 😁
If my life were taken today,
I wonder what you would say?
Would you tell me you love me?
Or would you say you were just being friendly?
Would you cry and hold me until my last breath?
Will you be sad because of my death?
If I died today, is there anything you’d like to say?
The earth covered me
The blackness consumes me
Eternal resting place, found me
While I lay still beneath the mud and dirt
Back to dust
I move on
And so it is
