sunlight
sunlight
drills into my eyes
as I walk
down the dusty road-
spring fades away

will I be able
will I be able
to hear your voice in heaven?
tears begin to fall
when I realize that
I've forgoten the sound

my thoughts are lifted
my thoughts are lifted
by the cool sunset breeze-
lavender sky

bird songs
bird songs
ring through the trees
as we walk
hand in hand in the shade-
planning our future

signing the papers
signing the papers,
giving away the keys
and closing the door-
the ghosts loudly cry
and only I hear them

yes, Hannah
yes, Hannah,
I so well remember
your 'little' days-
your smile has not changed,
but my love has grown

man-made breeze
man-made breeze
falls from the ceiling
to the bed-
having no energy left,
what more can I do?

brushing away
brushing away
the tarnish on my past,
leaving a
bright, clean, cheerful
and false impression

a spider hangs
a spider hangs
to his web as the wind blows-
empty rocking chairs
sway on the back patio
as if we were together

the alarm clock
the alarm clock
rudely shakes my head
in the dim room-
you leave me yet again
for another hot day

I'm asked to
I'm asked to
speak about my poetry-
can I bring in
the sun, the clouds,
the trees and the moon?

is it the rain
is it the rain
or the rose petals falling
to the ground
that have taken away
my memories of youth?

how slow time moves
how slow time moves
on days like this, the days
you've left us-
ignoring the sun,
hoping the darkness will come

of doves among other
birds chattering-
