    A MOTHER A mother is a mixture of

    so many things. A protector, a mentor and friend. She gives you guidance till you know your way, And nurtures from beginning to end. She provides you with meals from your very first bite, And feeds you till you’re on your own. She teaches you values like honesty and trust...

    We're afraid there has been a complication One

    Not Afraid.

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    I loved him the way you love your prom dress.

    I wanted to show him off, take him with me, show the world he is mine. I wanted everyone to stare and wonder where you could find someone like him. I loved him the way you love your first own car. He was not perfect or the best looking guy but I loved that. I was addicted to his...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    FADED LOOKS The things of youth we

    once cherished, And thought were important to keep. Were nothing more than superficial, And faded away in our sleep. Our looks is not what’s important, Although taking care of our self is not a crime, Some things just don’t last forever, Erased by the passage of time. So...

    Lost into the clouds ~ As I last saw you.

    .. You we're smiling, No longer in pain. I couldn't understand why, Or why it had to be this way, As you made your way to the clouds, I held on to your lifeless body and cried, I could finally say I've loved and I've lost, till this day I still wonder what your doing, and...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    My little shorty. Years

    since i last saw him Years since i accost him last. I used to give him my time, my love and my heart. Never once did he welcome, did he even acknowledge me. But that was years ago. That was many moons ago. Too many for my to count. Too many for you to remember

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    AN OLD MAN’S FLAG (c) 2015 by Edward York.

    The old man sat on his porch each day, As he rocked away in his chair. And the flag that he always proudly flew, Was waving ripples in the air. The flag he flew was ragged now, Having used it through the years, It held some memories from his past, And even held some tears...

    The feelings we share I ride like a wave, The ups the downs the direction they make, On a magic carpet that we made, From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid the vessel counts as much as the map, The carriage awaits for us to step up, I admit Its scary as it might...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    SILENCE: The treasures of life,

    they are plenty. The sorrows of life are but few; But the sorrows just take all our energy, No matter the good that we knew. We don’t always take time to be happy, It just seems too easy to be sad. We too often punish for goodness, And praise those who want to be bad. The...
