david lessard Poems
I'Ll Think Of You
As I go to sleep, I'll think of you - The things we've done, the things we'll do - And my dreams of you will last and love will stay- though the slumber hours, until the light of day.
Out of the great, green, grove of trees, In the darkness of the night; The snowy owl came sllenty by, A graceful poem in flight.
A Time To Bury Sorrow
A time for you and a time for me, to be whatever, we choose to be; to set our sights, to reach the peak, to realize goals, we truly seek.
A Remembrance Of My Father
I saw you as you were, Not as the person I last viewed - You were handsome, strong and good, Movie star looks and a great smile.
Armchair Traveler (With Apoligies To Rob...
I've climbed the highest mountains, swam the deepest sea, Struck gold up in Alaska, felled the tallest tree, I've ridden wild broncos and slept on desert sands, and lifted massive weights, with these old, arthritic hands.
this March madness is already driving me up a wall, I watch my favorite teams compete and strive to win; today two of the favored ones have taken their fall, reduced to losers, cast aside in basketball's dustbin.
The salaries of pro football players are drifting out of sight, The rookies make more than veterans, now would you say that's right?
When did we ever say goodbye? When did we ever let each other go? When did we ever give up our love? We never, ever, really did, you know...
I Forgive You And I Still Love You...
I forgive you, for breaking my heart; I forgive you, for breaking us apart.
I Don'T Want You Anymore
I don't want you anymore, For me, that much is certain; I will close that final door, and pull that final curtain.
If I Knew Then, What I Know Now
I know now what I didn't know then, but it's too late, and I have other things to tend.
No Roses Blooming...
There are no roses in this garden blooming, Their stalks have all withered and died; They died the day that you left me, and the feelings I had deep inside.
There Are Tears
There are tears to make one happy, and tears to make one blue; Tears amongst the laughter, and when the gloom descends on you.
A Woman Died Today (In The Springtime Of...
A woman died today, In the springtime of the year; Someone loved,
How many hearts need be broken, before that one heart dies?
How many harsh words spoken, before God hears their cries?
How many lifes are ruined, by a parent that just leaves?
How many children must suffer, Before the angels grieve?
How many people must go without, before one sees their needing?
How many crimes committed, to notice a city's bleeding?
How many loved ones perish, in the heat of anger and passion?
When will the empathy come, or is it out of fashion?
