Blessed

I am blessed to have felt
your light. It burns bright.
Through the pain and worry –
life was never boring. Blessed:
I am blessed to have seen
you and your ultra light beam.
Now, even when the light
starts to fade, I remember
the memories we made.
Your light will shine forever
as I live on with you gone.
Blessed: I am blessed to know
that your light will follow
where ever darkness goes.
Your light will shine just fine
as I try to brighten mine.

Darker Days

All days grow dark.
Some filled with pain.
I never look forward
to the darker days.
I can’t avoid feeling
down and dull
now and again.
Light blocked.
System shocked.
I hold onto the hope
I have left. Darker
days don’t stay away.
I close my eyes
and see better times.

Blue Rain

The blue rain came.
The sky spit and spat.
Raindrops drizzled
right in the middle
of a sun-shiny day.
The rain continued;
it kept coming –
as if God left
the faucet running –
and said “screw it;
learn to swim or
learn to grow
gills or fins.”
The blue rain sang
and said: “hello” –
before washing away
another bad day.

Volume Up

Speak up or sit down.
Be loud or be quiet.
Be great or hesitate.
Stay up or lay down.
Walk out or stay around.
Speak truths or pay dues.
Open up or close down.
Stay free or feel blue.
Live life or lose sight.
Be you and see me
shine the same light.

A Regular Rain

Rain is pouring with stars soaring.
Rain comes down from up high
and falls down from the sky.
Rain from above will shower faces
with eternal love. All rain allows
flowers to grow. Rain comes down
as thoughts flow to the places
I know. I know I am glad
to say that the rain came.
