Broke


Laughter and love
Happiness and hope
All filled a heart once made of gold....
Trust and respect
Guidance and care
All
Lived in this place we once called home

Now threes
Silence and ponder
As we wake alone
Hunger and loneliness
As the laughter is gone

All we had now suddenly gone
Our house...our hearts...
Abandoned....broke
Weariness now fills us all
For the one who filled our souls...
Who took us in when we had nowhere to go...?

Now threes empty halls
Were so alone...
Our house...our home...
Abandoned.....broke


But the memories are stained
Pressed into stone
Can never be erased.....
Our house our home was once full....
His spirit lives, as his
Soul moves on *

OUR HEARTS....our home
Will forever stay strong*

I

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
