A WISP OF MEMORY

 

To slip into the darkness and

feel its cold embrace as the

chill night caresses the colour

from your pallid, tear-stained face.

 

Inhale the icy air as you drift

and feel it tenderly beseeching,

its icy tendrils reaching deep

into the depths of your soul,

searching for the fragile life

that you hold within your tired,

tortured self like a flickering flame

growing dim upon an old dusty shelf.

 

And the life that you once knew,

says farewell and then goodbye.

That cold harsh reality;

questions fading with your eyes.

 

How can you just let go of those

you’ve loved throughout your life;

that you’ve nurtured and nursed

through life’s troubles and strife.

Just watch them slip like silken sand

free of your frantic fingers until

naught but a wisp of memory,

is sadly all that lingers.

HOLD TIGHT

Christmas is a time
Of joyful hearts hopeful eyes
As we reflect on times past
And look forward to surprise

Put aside the petty squabbles
And the pointless vendetta’s
And ask ourselves truly
Are we really no better

Spread your arms
With a welcoming smile
And defy all the ones
Who seek to defile

A moment of bliss
So heartily felt
Surrender to the moment
And let your heart melt

This may be the last time
For though we pretend
We really don’t know
When our journey will end

​The blink of an eye
Is all it can take
For a flame to burn out
And a warm heart to break

So grab for that moment
With both of your hands
Hold on tight
Let you love expand

To cover all
With a blanket so warm
Go out of your way
To keep them from harm

Hold them so tight
And hold them near
Never let go
Of the ones you hold dear

Face a future together
With no shadow of fear
Have a happy Christmas
And a loving new year
