For Smeags (2005)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

How can no one see you?
Can they not see the man
that stands right before their eyes,
who reaches to help any?

Can they not see a father,
wrapped in his children,
doing all it takes
for no more than their well being?

Can they not see the soldier,
who gave so much,
and has cried from pain,
those who scorn, will never know?

How can they miss the honor,
or look past a genuine heart?
How can they not see
a man I'm proud to call friend?

Give to me one more kiss.
Impart your spirit on my memory.
Chill my heart with a touch.
Ignite me with a glance.

In the house of the haunted
where I buried the past.

The waves crash the shore,
like the thoughts in my mind.
And the storm swells
to the point of breaking.

Untitled (Ix) (1993)

Do you understand what you hear?
Can you afford to see the truth?
Look past your preconceptions,
forget the stories told from a thousand lips.
