God & a Little Black Dog

 
The man on the bus
told us
God must've got tired
of being everywhere at once
until things turned so bad
he wound up being nowhere at all

That's why so much
evil
was happening in the world
Maybe God
was too old for the job
He ought to step aside
let someone younger take over
before these end times
got too far out of hand

We needed someone
a hundred per cent reliable
the man said
a whizz kid go-getter
to take on the Devil
vanquish his minions
and finish what God began

Who
we asked
In the entire history of the universe
was there anyone or anything
so perfectly enthusiastic
about his job
But all we could come up with
was a little black dog
with a stick in his mouth
a little black dog
called Death

Death Is A Pedophile

Death
Tip toes
Like a pedophile

Creeping
Dangerous
With dark intent

Smells
Broken souls
Like sweet perfume

Evil seducer
With
An icy touch

The innocents
Are such
Easy prey

Tastes fear
In that
Last breath

Thrill of not knowing  


It's like that one sparrow
has to fly up
past the gulls, and the hawks

to where the thin air
won't fill its lungs, hold its wings
or keep deep sleep
from its head

just to see

if it wakes
before it hits the ground

Katie

i am broken in the right places now
hollowed
and light as wind,
and all my memories swirled
and all my words
and all my wordless thoughts
and secret wishes
and him gone on
and her gone
and all my days gone, too
and one still wonders why
you would bring me here
and coddle me
and call me sweet girl
just to set me loose
when we all know how it ends

In Between

Stood there
between the relative and the absolute
feeling time was running out
yet knowing
time never ends
just runs clockwise in circles.

The waiter arrived
unfolding a table and a chair
"Your table, sir!
Are you here for the baptism or the funeral?"

"What's today's special?"

"Tea, sir!
What is your pleasure?" said the waiter
and his breath caused an atmospheric chemical reaction
effecting the fall of the season's first snow flakes
"Terribly sorry, sir, I didn't mean to..."

"Nonsense!", he cut him off
"Time and gravity come together...
Is it a girl's baptism?"

"Yes, it is, sir! And so is the funeral!"

"Could you please bring me the tea
and let both know I was never here?..."

Wasted life

       When I die it'll be an o.d
Sit down & listen to this story of me
I steal from the rich & take from the poor
Robin with a Hood, gett high some more
Not to be mistaken or misunderstood
I'm all bad there's is no good
Don't do what I should & break the law
Drugs took my family, I've lost it all
Have no answer or any reason why
I'm so sick, I'll even get my sponsor high
I have no morals & don't live by a code
I'm a ticking time bomb ready to explode
If you see me around, I'd cross the street
Because I will Lie, steal, kill & cheat
It's not about money, I can have plenty
What I have there isn't a remedy
I'm just a low down dirty thief
that doesn't feel sorry, I have no grief
So with whatever time, that I have left
I'm going to stay high, til my last breath
These may very well be,last words I write
All I'll ever be is just a wasted life

Kobe Bryant Died twice that day

Can you even imagine how difficult it was for him in that moment? The moment he knew that not only his own life was about to end, but that of his daughter...a life he helped create.

Can you imagine how he felt as a father knowing he couldn't protect her?

Can you imagine him holding her, consoling her, telling her he loved her as that helicopter went down?

As a parent, I can tell you, Kobe Bryant's greatest fear was realized today. And it wasn't the fear for his own life, but for that of his beautiful daughter.

Because as a parent, your life means nothing in comparison to the lives of your children.

We live for our children. We breathe for our children. They are our reason for being.

We would also die for them, without hesitation.

Without question, without a moments notice, we would lay down our own lives to ensure theirs.

Just thinking of his internal struggle in those last moments tears my heart into pieces.

He knew his daughter's young life was ending. He knew he was leaving 3 other precious children behind. Oh, how his heart must have ached!

Can you even imagine the agony that played out in his mind? Every parents worst nightmare happening to him in real time.

He was there when his sweet girl took her first breath, and he was there with her when she took her last.

And that's the only solace I can find in this...that he was there. In her final moments, her daddy was there to remind her of his undying love.

And with everything in me, I hope that baby felt every ounce of love her daddy had for her. I hope it overwhelmed her, and carried her straight into paradise.

Because I know that's all her daddy wanted too.

Rest in peace Kobe and Gigi. Our hearts mourn you ❤

Hug your children extra tight tonight, mamas and daddies. Tomorrow is never promised.

Watching my blood
pouring down
the drain
Feeling calm
in this world
of pain
Trying to see
what lays behind the door
Feeling Free
no pain
no more
Looking back
on the life I've lived
Feeling sad
for the ones I leave
But I can't stand
the things that I see
this crazy world
is not
for me

I watch my blood
Slowly drip down the drain
seeing things
I can't explain
becoming one
with the spiritual stream
taking me to
Where I've never been
As my eyes
grow a silent tear
that gently falls
upon my lips
Time to go
No more fear

MY QUEEN

   
{Life is hard to understand    
After you lose that special loved one      
What was two is now one, that is still at a stand      
One is a lonely number now that they're gone}      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"You were my morning and night"...      
     
Cherished seeing your smile before I'd go to work      
My breakfast you always made perfectly right      
And how you spoiled me feeding me with a fork...      
     
 Haha...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
Your calls and messages to say I love you...      
     
Would make my day spectacular boo      
With hearts and smiles, I painted in my mind      
Precious moments that are now left behind...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"Promises we made"...      
     
After making love in our throne bed we'd laid      
Still fulfills me to this day      
And how you begged me to stay...      
     
"Baby no one could ever make me feel the same way!!!"...      
     
"THAT IS TRUE, I SAY!!!"
     
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
 "Birthdays and Anniversaries"...      
     
We'd make our own paradise      
At home, we preferred to make our own sanctuaries      
Roses and wine was all needed to your eyes      
In a passion and affection what it truly signifies...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
--Never was a day I would never miss      
The huge hugs and your romantic kiss--
     
     
Mmmmm...      
     
The flavor of your silky lips      
Resting my arms on your beautiful curvy hips.      
How you adored as I brought you tulips...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"I always raged mad"...      
     
To see you so sad...      
     
Massaging your gloom and more I wish I had      
But when we had an argument fight      
I found it super sexy, dynamite...      
I turn off the light      
Relaxing you to making it again all right...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"I remember your last seen"...      
     
How it was like only yesterday      
(tears slides down)      
When making sure our laundry was clean      
Always taking care of our things every day...      
     
--Now that was love...      
My queen dove--...
     
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"In bad times how we'd cry together"...      
     
I'd make sure you were always feeling better      
Now I cry alone      
On my own      
     
"Why are you gone?!!"      
     
These sorrowful tears now shown      
That I must endure as each day goes on...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"You were my everything"...      
     
Still are from the moment of a wedding ring      
that I now wear in your memory      
It shatters me desperately      
This is so painfully tough for me...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"How all you do--to me mean"...      
     
The bedroom is the same way as you left it      
I now see you in only a dream      
As I lay in our love bed and I coldly sit      
A cold spot feeling where you always been...      
I know it's you as I don't mind your visit...      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"Time is so dreadfully still"...      
     
So dull without your warm feel      
Inside I feel like myself I just want to kill      
     
"But I remember"...      
     
 --"How you never liked that dark deal"--      
     
You said...      
     
"Life is beautiful"...      
     
In rough roads challenger      
Different paths that will take you      
as we live life longer...      
Never let it hit you like a timber      
     
"WITH GOD EVERYTHING WILL CONQUER"...      
"LOVE AND FAITH MAINTAINS STRONGER"...
     
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"Your touching words I can never forget"...      
     
Drifting away in a coffin that's ready and set...      
     
"Oh, baby"...      
     
"I'm deeply sorry"...
     
     
How I wish it was instead me...      
Here's my love in a rose...for you...      
     
"A rose for you"...      
     
"I'm so lost"...      
     
"Without you"...
     
     
My heart is broken and blue...      
In a deep respect      
My sad farewell...      
     
"Will I ever see you again"???      
     
My wife, lover and best friend...      
     
"Only time will tell"...      
     
But yet...      
     
"This is very hard to accept"...
     
     
     
"LORD PLEASE"!!!      
     
"HELP ME TO COMPREHEND!!!"      
     
"WHY IT HAS TO BE THE END???"     
     
"CALM MY GRIEF WITH YOUR ANGELIC ANGEL"     
     
"PLEASE MERCIFULLY SEND!!!".....      
     
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"Without you is like not having a heart"...      
     
I'm truly trying to move on      
     
"But its too hard!!!"      
     
How will I overcome???      
Hearing our favorite love song...      
🎶"Till death do us part"🎶      
     
     
BUT IN THE MEANTIME...      
     
     
I PROFOUNDLY REFLECT...      
     
DEATH IS NOT A CRIME...      
     
OR IS IT FOREVER GOODBYE...      
     
     
IT'LL TAKE TIME      
FOR ME, MYSELF AND I...      
BUT NOT TO FAIL AS I'll STOP BY      
AND VISIT YOUR RESTING AND SAY HI...      
     
IT WON'T BE EASY...      
     
BUT SWEETHEART THAT I'll DO      
'TILL THE DAY I THEN HAVE TO ALSO DIE"...    
     
I LOVE YOU...      
     
AND FOREVER MY PEACHY...      
     
"PATIENCE IS THE KEY"...      
     
     
"I KNOW, I KNOW"...      
     
     
THE TRUTH IS...      
     
WHAT GOD'S PLANS HE STILL HAS PREPARED FOR ME...      
FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE...      
WHAT I STILL MUST EXPECT...      
AND MEMORIES OF YOU IS ALL I GOT LEFT...      
     
     
"I KNOW, I KNOW"...      
     
     
"IT'LL BE AN ULTIMATE STRIFE"...      
     
BUT BEFORE I GO...      
     
SO I'll SAY IT LIKE THIS...      
     
MY BOO...      
     
MY QUEEN...      
     
"FOR YOU... FOR YOU... FOR YOU!!!"      
     
I KNOW IT'LL BE A LONG JOURNEY WHILE...      
     
     
BUT I PROMISE YOU THAT...      
     
     
"I'll IN YOUR HONOR CONTINUE TO SMILE"...

Two Tears

taste of bitter
first tear
reaches my lips
 
sadness
sorrow
lost potential
 
healthy young man
dead
 
years pass
pain acute
like
he just left yesterday
 
where is he now
 
small asteroid
among the stars
 
diffused
in celestial
energy fields
 
in the tree
beside the pond
where his ashes lie
 
or
 
only in my heart  
 
does it matter
 
except
to me
 
bitter taste
 
second tear
descends

Death Unveiled

Most often, you must join me on this side in order to realize there is no you, no me.    
 
We are but perfect energy contracting and expanding, simultaneously, always.    
   
From the other side,    
this message of love    
a mere mirror.    
   
You mourn a loss. I cry as well, for I am you.    
As you are consoled, I , too, am comforted.    
I rejoice and soak in the revelation:    
All is one. And it is well.    
And, though you may not yet know it, you celebrate as you marinate, too.    
   
R.
