No longer

The night that no one is there.When no one comes to the door. When no one cares for the poor. Then you will know. Faith’s seeds can no longer be sown. Night will claim the days. Our souls eternity will pay. Until that day, Pray. WAManning

Standing beside

Standing beside my bed.Startled awake from noises in my head. Are they real these threats I see? Will each continue to trouble me. How can I know? Can I these terrors ever outgrow? Awake in the darkness. The light of day I dread. From these terrors hope fled. Sweating crimson, life’s waters I tread. Standing […]

This trail

Beside this trail remain we three.Witness to eras and omens reborn. Hearing cries and sighs of the passing. Burdened not by angers passions. Watching each pass by unthinking. Forgotten by the hopeless. Ravaged by want, unloved, taunted. Greedily scooped from the needy. Beside this trail remain we three. Witnessing your passing. Hearing you do the […]

Life’s fire

Life’s fire fills her eyes again.Pain and confusion lived in them to long. Fear chased hope, though, never from her heart. Her eyes, filled to often with want. Wildfire infused in her port. Ravaging more than the cancer it fought. Taking her memory first then her will. I still have s chill to think of […]

Sending you through those doors.Grew harder each time. Watching fear in your eyes, As the rolled you to the room. Even the memory of your pain, The struggles to regain, Steals the breath from my heart. Angry beats for the moments, Cancer from our lives cheats. Too many to count, Procedures and surgeries mount. Healing […]
