When the Sky Falls

Water turns to snow and the earth begins its glow.

A blanket swaddles the earth, except cold and not of the hearth.

We animals seek refuge inside. Afraid of summer’s winter bride.

Waiting, we try to survive. Only some are able to thrive.

They are those who dealt with the froze.

They are those who find the first rose. 



A Man Moved Away Today

A man moved away today.

Not just any man, a very special man.

A son moved away today.

A son who was loyal to his mother and father.

A brother moved away today.

A brother who learned from and loved his siblings.

A friend moved away today.

A friend that made everyone feel welcome, even the stranger.

A lover moved away today.

A lover whose tenderness can never be replaced.

My best friend moved away today.

A best friend who’s place I’d rather take.

Where he’s moved, I am not sure.

Why he’s gone, I’ll never know.

In the meantime, I’ll wait.

And love him like he’s never gone.
