Throw Back

Contemplating the joy of the fight…

   Throw Back

He throws and I slip
I throw back and he lets loose
Who wins? Such a trip…

In Wonder

Contemplating the beauties of mystery…

   In Wonder

In worlds of wishes
Life invested in wonder
Chasing Eclipses

Ready to Go

Of redemption, love, and commitment…

   Ready to Go

When right who will stand?
I’m ready to go. My kids
Really understand

Finally Quiet

Of life and the struggle…?

   Finally Quiet

They endlessly bray
Will they finally be quiet?
It’s election day

We’ve grown so weary
But gigs of sound bytes to go
Just the primary

Time and Again

Regarding life, love, and commitment…

   Time and Again

Twenty one years together
She finds it impossible to imagine
A life without him
It should have been forever

Still she wouldn’t trade even one year
To not feel the pain
She’ll stay here

For now near
To this awful pain
Embracing every last tear

And then she’ll move on but missing their life together
And the not holding him
But he will always be there time and again
Forever
