sadness

Essence

To the moon,
to the stars,
to the sun,
to the earth.

We feel, we fight.
We love, we hurt.
We heal, we learn.

We make a mark,
unique to the soul.
Blessing those we touch,
with our laughter and our life.

Rising with our hopes,
falling with our demons,
believing with our faith,
embracing all we can.

With laughter, with smiles,
we say goodbye,
with memories made well,
and legacies that live on.

To the moon,
to the stars,
to the sun,
to the earth.

Just Another Day - Poem

Just another day

Drip, drip,
you sit and watch.
Drip, drip,
the same old noise.
Drip, drip,
just another day.

Fix it, they say.
Fix it, they plead.
Fix it, they scream.
You stop,
and stare.

Drip, drip,
it’s back again.
Drip, drip,
glass-eyed and numb.
Drip, drip,
just another day.

Do something, they say.
Anything, they hope.
Fix it, they scream.
You stop,
and smile.

Drip, drip,
you rise and fall.
Drip, drip,
You laugh, you scream.
Drip, drip,
just another day.

Lost 

Lost souls searching for something,
a comforting contentment of another time,
when there were less questions and more smiles,
or so we imagine.

Lost souls searching for answers,
for a moment of peace amongst the bustle,
for some salvation hidden in the scattered dreams,
that once shone so bright.

Lost souls, lost souls.
Where will you go?
Lost souls, lost souls.
Seek until you find.

I miss you 

It was the smile I remembered the most,

Like sunshine – big, bright and beautiful.

A smile that was almost a laugh,

That brought so much life to the eyes.

It was a smile that could solve a bad day.

It could make you forgot your woes.

It could take you back to a simpler time.

It made you realise the simplicity of what life could be.

All that in a smile.

But even the brightest of smiles couldn’t cure memory’s failures.

I remember, I remember, but the memory fades each day.

It gets a little dimmer as the years go on.

Your smile. I hold on. Still shining. Still so pure.

I hold on as it’s all that I can do.

Are you still smiling?

I’m still here.

Still remembering.

Keep smiling.

Keep smiling for me.
