Posts filed under ‘death’





why do we have to die?

family, friends, pets – why?


why does death have to be a part of life?


the pain, the sadness, the tears – why?


why do those we love have to go away?


why can’t they stay for one more day?


one more day so we can say all that we need to say ~


one last time ~


a last “i am sorry”

a last “i thank you”

a last “i will miss you”

a last “i love you”


the last “goodbye”




please tell me why?

the muse



the scent of Chanel still lingers,

though her pulse is no longer felt

she has left him in the darkness ~

robbing him of his capacity to create.


as he sits quietly on his stool

staring at nothing but his hands,

he tries desperately

to remember

the first moment she captured his mind…


it was so many years ago

when she opened the door ~

each curve captured his imagination,

gave him a purpose,

fueled his drive





she is gone for eternity,

time has robbed him

of his life ~

two hands forever empty,

his passion

no longer alive.

to rekindle

a spark can ignite

embers of a memory

my nightmare returns

a note to my neighbor


i do not know you


you do not know me.

our eyes have met a couple of times


words have never been exchanged.

i know you are troubled –

you keep to yourself.

i understand this need,


i keep my distance…..


you live across my driveway.

i see your house every single day.

we breathe the same air


we hear the same birds.

when i stand in my kitchen,

your red shades always stare at me


the old Ford Maverick smiles,

as i leave for work each day.


i have been thinking, as of late,

i have not seen you in a while.

no visitors stopping by


a trash can on the curb.

i know you are a very private person


being TOO alone can be a curse.

i worry.



i did not know you


you did not know me


if life had been different,

we may have been friends.


please know i wish you peace.

to revisit

memories i need buried

places i cannot visit

one moment in time

tears trigger a mudslide

always thinking

always wishing

always missing

in a blink

everything feels right

it takes only one moment

life changed forever

ps:  A fellow classmate of  Peyton’s was killed in a car accident, along with his parents over Spring Break in AZ.  His 9-year-old sister survived and is in critical condition.

Please keep them in your thoughts.

March 19th



lots of flowing tears

giggles here and there

thoughtful walks with Pee

a day of memories

cloaking one’s soul in darkness…

it silently preys


a relentless voracity







kinda frozen

two years have passed

the guilt still thrives

the pain still swells

you are missed terribly
