Poem: 31

Another year around the globe and yet nothing has change, but everything.

The love that once surround you is no more.

The place that you used to call home is gone.

The people that made you are no longer hear.

Friends have come and gone, and yet you are still smiling.

Thought it hurts that some calls will never come.

Your future is shining bright.

The shell that you used to carry on your back is starting to break.

31 years to this life and now it starting to feel complete.

Poem: One-Way

Looking from the heavens above.

As people gather for something that no one can explain.

Friends come to show they care.

While family come to grief and to shed a tear.

The one thing they both have in common is love.

Something that bleed from soul down to my toes

Though you cannot see me know, know that I am there.

I am in the spine of the chair that holds your back.

I am in the walk of the steps that carry you.

We you are about to fall know that I will catch you.

We can still have our talks, sometimes I might not reply.

Just know I hear you, so please do not cry.

Though the tears are falling like rain, this will heal just not today.

This is not goodbye; I am just on a one-way trip.

Poem: Lost Friend

The shadows of light are no longer.

The feeling of warmth is now surrounded by the bitter cold.

Getting up is no longer easy.

Walking is making me lose my breath.

Knowing that you are leaving and now I cannot speak.

The person that has held my hand and wipe my tears.

Is leaving me and I do not know how to feel.

I cannot go numb that would mean that this is real.

Dreaming about the days when life was sweet.

To now trying to hold back the tears, to point where I cannot see.

I know we will meet again.

Our table is already booked.

One day I will be okay, but right now I am missing my best friend.

Poem: Waiting

My love the time has come.

The time we all knew would be soon.

The time that has come for most, and now it is here for you.

I have met my faith and did what had to be done.

It is almost your time now, and finally you can see the sun.

The lights that have become harder to see will finally be clear.

The vison that has haunted most is now one that will no longer bring fear.

This is not a test, this is not a rest, this is just the next step.

I know you are scared, and wondering is this it?

The answer is yes, but do not fear.

You will find me waiting my dear.

I have looked out and over for many years counting down the days.

I know this is hurting them most, but this time I need you more.

We hoped that we would have more time to share with the ones you loved.

You had more than me and that is all I can think of.

This journey with you have been one that made dreams think that this was not real.

The journey is ending, and the start of the unknown is waiting.

Do not cry just know that I am waiting on the other side.
