“Thanking the Stars”

January 13, 2020

“Thanking the Stars”

 

Face smashed on that fast concrete

Ripping your skin now bloody meat

A brave young man bombing the hill

At first it was such a thrill

Speed wobbles the fear came true

Falling is all you could do

Your brother covered your body and screamed out your name

Hugging your rag dolled body twitching in pain

Breath came back and you got right up

Face, hand, hip, shoulder, knee, bleeding, f*ck

“I’m okay, I’m just mad my new pants got ripped”

“This is not okay, I messed up, I’m such an idiot”

Better call Mom she’s not too far

Mom is friends with nurses who cleaned your new scars

We got lucky this time, next time we’ll listen to Jack

We’ll wear a helmet and pads so you won’t get cuts all over your back

And face, hand, hip, shoulder, knee

Thanking the stars right now for the wonderful gift in my life named Henry

“For Robert”

September 24, 2019

Summer’s gone and so are you

Leaves must fall to begin anew

Hunter of the golden ring

Reminder to not forget the love we bring

No one wants to, but sometimes you just have to say toodeloo

Into the great beyond half stepping uptown out of the blue

Roses for you and a magical fountain

Flames burn on that mountain

Hope you finally win that hand

Oh the spirits you helped in this mournful land

We danced, we dance, we sing your tunes

Even though we might be all just strangers standing on the moon

A life well lived, a grateful dad

One of the best we’ll ever have

Summer’s gone and so are you

Leaves must fall to begin anew

“Waves of Summer”

September 23, 2019

 

The waves of summer come and gone

Splashed and played in the hot hot sun

We shed our clothes took off our shirts

Ooohed and aaahed at the fireworks

Music filled our ears and soothed our hearts

Bones were shaking, rattling, rolling in fits and starts

The wolf came out to play in the city’s field

Mother and daughter watched the tie dye spill

Laughing at the absurdity of it all

Holographic boundaries threatening to undo the walls

Stumbling drunk you smashed my drink all over me

You just kept on trucking not wanting to miss the ferry

In the saltwater pool we played colors

A bee stung mother she shouted, “fucker!”

A backyard luau with floral prints

Late night karaoke fit for a prince

Christmas in July with Amelia

Sweating in the garage passing sensimilla

Rain poured down on the nest

Give us shelter, you guys are the best

Surprise surprise silver balloons read four zero

Throwing hatchets in the woods trying to be a hero

Riding bikes and the sunset in Cape May

Eating take out on the beach with the family

The prince and the princess became a king and queen

Overlooking the sandy hook ocean from a water witch’s dream

Stumbling in the dark in a tux drunk rolling down the hill

Never once did we feel we got our fill

We were asked to sea, to hear, to be here now

Life lessons were learned to make us stronger before we bow

The waves of summer come and gone

Splashed and played in the hot hot sun
