days gone by
why so much pain
a friendship strong
now silent & gone

how are you?
love you too!
echos beyond time
voices we remember

a shattered heart’s cry
imbued with sadness
one by one
yellow petals fall
from old dry roses
swept far away..
memories yesterdays

We hurry…

Through afternoons of
Going home across moist
blackness. This day finished.
Another piece of the puzzle gone.

daybreak painting a tin star
autumn leaves and stepping stones
a long goodbye amid raindrops
not a single reason for sadness
drying my tears happy endings

Ticktock Goes The Clock

The clock of life ‘ticktocks’ quickly like silver lightening!
It’s moving hands never stand still as I watch the day slipping into the night.
Stealing hours, minutes and seconds of precious life moments,
Before the clock’s chimes STRIKE an end to the day!

Kids Without a Care

for being for living
skateboarding in a building
blocking a car
going far
having a drink
not old enough
do they care
do they mind
who are they
