December 11th

It has been so long since I have seen your face,
But I still remember what you told me,
I will not be long,
Just please wait.

Twenty years today will live in me forever,
Because I remember what I heard,
A gun shot loud across the miles,
To see you alive again never.

Two days later I received the note,
I remember my sadness as I read it,
The poor baby inside of me,
His daddy will not be coming home.

Five days more and then the funeral,
Remembering us in happier days,
As I wept silently,
I will love you always.

Thirty days longer and I started to choke,
I remember the aches in my stomach would not subside,
I could not believe that I had lost both of you,
Together you now lay side by side.

Even though it seems so long ago,
Remember what I said before they closed the casket,
I will happily lay beside you both,
When it is my time to go.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
