One a Day: Song

Sunshine

I will never hold you
Never count your perfect toes
Smooth down your sweet tresses
Or kiss your wrinkled nose

I won’t call you baby
Won’t kiss away your pain
I will never hold you
Watch you fall asleep again

You were my sunshine
I miss you like sunshine
I called you my sunshine
I love you little sunshine

I won’t watch you grow
Or worry about your safety
I’ve lost all my hope
Of calling you my baby

My sweet perfect gift
For your happiness I pray
One last gentle kiss
Before they take you away

You were my sunshine
I miss you like sunshine
I called you my sunshine
I love you little sunshine

One a Day: Rispetto

We used to tend roses

lovingly with our hands

Now instead he closes

wounds of his fellow man

 

How quick our time ended

This life – held suspended

in the grip of dreamers

and the hearts of grievers

One a Day: Acrostic

Shadow

Sneaking down corridors,
Hallways filled with mystery
All the fears of my childhood
Down the creaking staircase, lay
Oh, to find my way out of this
Winding, spooky, haunted house!

One a Day: Terza Rima

As I walk along the cold forgotten path
I feel as though a shadow walks besides me
And though I feel no menace, hatred, or wrath

I wonder why I cannot, this shadow, see
But to stop along the path and delve deep
Into the gloom is a choice not meant to be

Along this cold forgotten path I must keep
I cannot stop for food or drink, I cannot
Stop for rest and never shall I stop to sleep

I must hurry, be swift or else be forgot
Time waits for some, but for me, surely will not

Reach
Back in
Time that’s been
Erased from all
Memory. And not since
You were a child, fragile and small
Did anyone think to hold you tight or call
You honey. Those days of warm breezes at the beach
People watching in air-conditioned malls
Are gone. Now it’s back to cramped halls
Mind games you cannot win
Crying in stalls
Gone from all
Not in
Reach

(This was yesterday’s, fell asleep before I could post.)

Eternity
That’s how long we said it would last
Eternity
A fluke that became Destiny
A chance encounter with the past
A plea answered and fate’s die cast
Eternity

One a Day: Lanturne

Shoot
Push up
Rise above
Reach for the clouds
