_______________


a life seemed to float like the clouds above
with God’s grace you were a creation of love
in thy mother’s womb, asleep in the garden of Eden
you were the child lovingly made in Heaven


despite the pains that have gone through
the joys you gave were comfort though so few
you were the spring in the heat of summers
carrying you was a pride on the bold shoulders


they have crossed the deep turbulent ocean
waited for you despite the great distance

if in your life the plight will drag on
faith will inspire you to catch the early dawn


be brave, don’t be the moment’s snowflake
heartaches are there to put your future at stake
don’t let yourself be thrown overboard
prayers are your shining armor and your sword


go, find yourself while you’re young
experience reality and speak the other tongues
till the soil, learn your own personal skill
remember, the world is like a spinning wheel


your nights are as crucial as your days
judgment should be truthful and simply fair
find and express LOVE to many of mankind
the best memoirs that you’ll leave behind…

With These hands…

With these bare hands that i have
memoirs will take center stage
words coming out from different heads
story lines queue with different threads

sad and happy thoughts of yester years
threads of life sewn with sweat and tears
colors of different hues and various shades
form part of the fabric that these hands made

writing in any form with my worn out hands
from the deepest feels of mind’s silhouette hinterlands
painful cries of tired difficult moments
sweet smiles on great and easy days
they won’t be forgotten, with these hands…
