Sweetly blow

Clearly … baby dolls …. fill a void
Caring for them … as … a child
Gentleness … tenderness
Keeps you calm … versus wild
Yesterday’s faces … memories
Seem to have … faded away

At least … from … outward signs
Silence … forgetting … portrayed
We’re talking about … baby dolls
I say … let’s find … your kid
Then out of the blue … you expound
(You have five … heaven forbid)
Sharon … Sis … Bill … Meta … David
Children you birthed … long ago
You reeled off their names quickly
(Smiled … raised your eyes)
Whispers of time … sweetly blow.

Singing the blues

Suspicious Lady Blue … wants to run away
Anxious … confused … nothing new today
She’s restless … trying … to remember
Past memories … lost … fading embers
Holding on … bits ‘n pieces … wrinkles
Whispers of time … bursting … twinkles
Frowning eyebrows … tell … the sad news
Lady Blue’s heart … is singing the blues.

A dignified life

Tears ago … my heart sank … much to know … to help Mom
Whispers of time … have past … my mission … remains fast
Hope is urgent … constant … hold tight … forceful might
Ever so close … yet not … dear God … my lot
Oh … to toss … the veil … that doubles … each day
I’m fading … exponentially … soon to be gone … away
Remaining memories of me … distant drumming sounds
Soon our only bond … you dear Jesus … our heart’s song
Daily prayer … no worry … no strife … a dignified life.

Time whispers away

Sitting … thinking … frowning face
Bewildered … forlorn … smile displaced
Worried … wondering … why
Where’d everyone go … heaving sigh
Bits ‘n pieces … words … expound
Reminisce … heart’s unsound
Fading faces … thoughts askew
Where’d they go … and why not you
Quietly sit … share … your space
Words are few … thoughts embrace
Hugs ‘n smiles … NOT blissful day
Time … whispers … away.

Holding the Fort

Kaleidoscope … auras … all colors ‘n hues
Kindness ‘n smiles … chase away … Lady Blues
Dark colors suppressed … it’s now … Lucy’s day
Enjoying … sunshine … bright colors … display
A whisper in time … Blue gives … a non smile
Bright colors fade … Lady Blue … beguiles
Challenging … times … needless to say
Holding the fort … while Lucy’s … away.

Hearts’ Key

Seriously? … sigh … again!
Lost from beginning … to end
Daily meals … breakfast ‘n brunch
Forgotten … looking for lunch
Shower day … no way … you say
Tomorrow … come what may!
Clothes … off racks … piles in stacks
Daily chore … fastening back
A challenge … you are … to me
Fading away … with my hearts’ key!

Wiggle Or Jar

Negative vibes swaying your day
Positive whispers … faded away
Wanting to unwind … yesterday
Unfold time … stolen … away
Strolling down streets swirled in your head
Fragments of memories … pieces now … wed
Yearning to learn why you are where you are
Trying to grasp time … wiggle … or jar.

Safe Nest

Birds flying … gathering  … twigs ‘n leaves
Nesting  … soft … mother’s embrace
Tirelessly … daily … flutter … to make
A  safe place … you miss your safe place
You … nestled ‘n gave … a Mother’s … embrace
I get it … I do … memories  faded … gone
You ponder and stew … wanting to know … why
Where’d everything … go? Memories … askew
Can’t put them together … for you.

Nostalgia

“Sorry … I can’t remember”
Words … you sadly …  say
Pondering … long …  hard
Memories … faded … away
Such a trooper … you’ve been
Searching …  “minds eye”
Wanting  … memories
To …  share … verify
Amazing … what love can do
Holding tight … the moment
Keeps  … Lady Blue  away
Enjoying now … miss yesterday.

F.a.d.i.n.g. Faces

Faces … fading … from sight
Holding on … with all your might
Is that how I am … too
Am I far away …from you
Am I blurring fading fast
How long will my face last
Do you wonder … who I am
Can you see … me … am I
F.A.D.I.N.G. … from you?
