A huge chunk of my childhood just got wiped out in one day.

SOMETIMES

Sometimes there are no words
There are no feelings
All that remains
Is a numbness
An emptiness
A feeling of slowly falling
Into a bottomless pit
Of being detached from reality
And fading into nothingness

Sometimes there is no reason
There is no clear explanation
All that remains
Are unanswered questions
Endless pondering
Useless inquisition
No rationale
No understanding
Just infinite deliberation

Sometimes there is no warning
There is no expectation
All that remains
Is utter bewilderment
Endless confusion
Chaotic disarray
Disorder that brings
Endless torment
Sadness and guilt

Sometimes there is no tomorrow
There are no plans for the future
All that remains
Is relentless agony
Regret over past misfortunes
Languishing in present turmoil
An inability to communicate
And no one can hear the sound
Of a soul crying out in pain

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep
--Mary Elizabeth Frye


Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Remember
-- Christina Rossetti


Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

NOTHING

Nothing is stronger than love;
No wind, no rain, no hail.
When it's sent from up above,
True love will never fail.
Though hate would threaten to split
This bond that people seem to share,
This love will forever sit
In those dark shadows that lie there.
Love can mend a bridge in due time;
It can move a mountain by a mile.
Love can bring out kindness from crime;
It can turn a frown into a smile.
Strength is often measured by force,
And wars are fought because of it,
But love can be mighty of course
As long as we refuse to quit.
Though disappointments sting the soul,
We must take courage and endure.
We will eventually reach our goal
And find a love that is so pure.
Patience, time, and faith are needed
For love to find its way back,
And when these few words are heeded,
We will be on the right track.
How on earth the world will go on
Is what we often think of,
But it will last well past the dawn
...Nothing is stronger than love.

Where I came from there were no hills at all

The land was flat, the highways straight and wide

My brother and I would drive for hours

Like years instead of days

Our faces as pale as the dirty snow


Once I knew there was a love divine

Then came a time I thought it knew me not

Who can forgive forgiveness where forgiveness is not

Only the lamb as white as snow


And the water, it was icy

As it washed over me

And the moon shone above me


Now this dry ground it bears no fruit at all

Only poppies laugh under the crescent moon

The road refuses strangers

The land the seeds we sow

Where might we find the lamb as white as snow


As boys we would go hunting in the woods

To sleep the night shooting out the stars

Now the wolves are every passing stranger

Every face we cannot know

If only a heart could be as white as snow

If only a heart could be as white as snow

(lyrics borrowed from Paul Hewson)

SORRY

Sorry I made you cry
Too late to wonder why
Can't undo what's been done
After you've hurt someone

Sorry is just a word
A sound that's overheard
When the going gets tough
One word is not enough

Sorry takes a while
To bring back your smile
Can never be the same
It's a malicious game

Sorry is a mistake
It won't heal a heartache
It's useless to build a shrine
After you've crossed that line

Sorry to say Goodbye
It hurts to watch you die
In some far off land
Someday you'll understand
