cecelia warner Poems

Our 'Bleeding Hearts'

You've planted many flowers for us
that are now starting to grow.
Some of them I know by name
but others, I just don't know.... more »

Masking The Truth

My life was based
on masking the truth,
not allowed to express feelings
buried throughout my youth.... more »

Empty During The Day And Dark At Night

Creating a small island of hope in a sea of ruin
Sparkling and bright on Delery Street... more »

My sister Cecelia, my true sister by blood With her poems, the memories for me start to flood And as I start to realize that poetry is her hidden gift My feelings on how we grew up takes an unexpected shift In families such as ours, we all had our roles I happened to be the favorite, the spotlight I stole And her role, as it were, was to be the clown Friends flocked to her because she was fun to be around But as old and tiring as these roles had gotten over the years, when siblings get together, roles turned into battle gear It's how we grew up and so, learned how to cope through the dysfuntion, what was there to hope? I see it now, Cel, the sadness through the smile I see the crack in the mask, it's been there all the while It's hidden so well, as long as others keep laughing your sense of humor is really your sadness-in-masking I hope you already know this, but I'll tell you here I love you so much, and close to my heart I hold you so dear We have so many things that we will never agree upon but understanding you better through poetry is now what's spawned I thank you so much for the opportunity to look into your soul I'm happy you now have people in your life making you feel whole And before too long, I hope to see you finally hold your head up high and that you'll put down that mask... and kiss it goodbye. Welcome to Poemhunters, I know they'll love your company, sista. Much love, Lee
