Biography of Arlene Dery

Arlene Dery Poems
Hope In Heaven's Day
Grief be mine, I ask you so, If not for you, I wouldn't know, How life once was and then be still, How so precious, that death do steal.
A surprise! A surprise! What will it be? Bringing it closer, 'cause I wanna see. Is it a prize? or maybe a gift? Oh, does it matter? My spirits have lift!
Treasures To Keep
A lock of hair trimmed, with ribbon so sweet, A bouquet of flowers, pressed to keep, The baby dolls resting, from hard play, Sympathy cards, are with them today.
This Poet Has A Lot
So many feelings inside to explore. discovering one, then some more. Emotions come out! I implore. a thought to put down for evermore.
No Memories Of You
Always missing, never finding, On the path that's ever winding- Around in search of you, (It was all I knew to do) .
A Place Beyond The Veil
There's a place beyond the veil, That's hidden physically. How can I doubt my Lord is real, Because I cannot see?
Jet, The Black Cat
The blackest cat I ever met, That is why I named him Jet. Was Jetty, that he came to be, The little kit, who came to me.
Where Does My Love Go
When I haven't seen your face, Or felt the warmth of your embrace, When you are but a thought, Just a vision I have sought.
Welcome Tears- you came my way, so I may know Comfort, in my saddest of days.
Time For Heaven
Though my soul longs to be, On that side eternally, There's a reason, here to stay, Wonder why most every day.
Oh, tiers of a fountain Cry out your distress, Water overflowing Blues of caress.
September Will Come And Go
We've had a separation, Far in space and years, You are always welcome, So put away your fears.
Mighty Red Sea
With no where to turn, and no place to be, I found my back to, the Mighty Red Sea. Peril surrounding, my every side, Enemies charging, no place to hide.
Rosy red berries, picking so sweet, Such is a tempting and heavenly treat. Rinse under water, cut off the green,
A surprise! A surprise! What will it be?
Bringing it closer, 'cause I wanna see.
Is it a prize? or maybe a gift?
Oh, does it matter? My spirits have lift!
Covered in wrap, with a ribbon or two,
A moment ago, I thought I was blue!
Probing and tugging and giving a shake...
My attention is on it, I'm fully awake!
Putting it closer- near to my ear...
