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…

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

Each New Dawn

Of life, love, struggle, and friendship…

   Each New Dawn

One more great man falls
As do all

No longer famous
But was among the bravest

Knowing him we knew it to be so
And thru the years his valor would only grow

Those of us that walk around ready to fight
For loved ones, duty, and for what’s right

And those with families that knew him knew his commitment
To be the best he could for those he loved and to be decent

His world champion fame and glory days long since gone
Each new dawn

He greeted as a warrior
No matter the trial or travail he was a fighter to the core

To the end
Those that knew him proud to call him friend
