So Long


Courtesy of:

9 years since I have seen my family

The ones of blood

Of shared roots, and skinned knees


9 years full of sowing and reaping

Each to his own

So long, yet never the sound of weeping


9 years, and likely quite a few more

Paths no longer cross

Life was not a game, and there was no score


Now I Sleep


Now I sleep in trust

I relinquish this day

A memory that never was

Forgotten as so many before


A world in a faded dream

Meaning is an ethereal thing

A rear view speeding from view


There once was a man

Or so I was told

One who is well recalled


Words speak of deeds

I have never seen

Pulled from a past

Echoes of what has been
