“ A Last Goodbye ” ~ gives reason pause ~

 

One wants believe

All we’ve achieved,

Would but forever

Live and breathe,

That fate abide

We share the lot

With those in need,

Thus to subscribe

In mindful cause

Be worth’s provide,

Before a last goodbye!

 

“ Years Moreover ” ~ before the dark ~

I’ve sought living

Years moreover,

As man’s dream

Be time wanting,

Leaves me plead

Ne’er be enough,

Though I concede

Years so far lived,

Holds clearly best

Be time life gave,

Save so ascribed

A morose grave,

As destined site

Fixed be man’s fate,

Thus beg stall plight

For score or more,

Before the dark,

Becomes eternal night!     

                            ode to friend Basile, now in eternal night…

“ Friendship ” ~ that special gift ~

Of rare occasion

Be such present

As friendship,

Held to bestow

Upon ones life, 

Chance caused

Find a place

Where so decides,

Incarnate state

Best be ascribed,

Thus years ago

Held many more,

Serendipity alas       

Upon me did bestow

That special gift!
