I Try To Talk To You, You Turn Away

Poem By Amanda Baines

I try to talk to you, you turn away.
I try to comfort you, you cry all day.
It's been days since we talked, you won't look at me!
I scream and throw books, but it's like you can't see.
I talk reasonably to you, I try to argue, I cry,
It goes on all day, and I stop and wonder why?
I can't remember what happened, but you're so sad
What could have happened? It must be very bad,
I've never seen you cry, in all our years as man and wife,
What did I do to cause you all this pain and strife?
I see you walk towards the pool,
And in your hand, a small black jewel.
The ring you gave me on our anniversary - one year!
back then losing you had been my only fear.
you stop at the edge of the water and begin to cry
I cry too, but stop when you scream 'Why? '
'Why did you take her? Why did she leave? '
The threads of fear in my mind start to weave.
'You shouldn't have taken her! It wasn't her time!
Why can people get away with such crime?
They say they can't find him - it was just a hit and run,
but how do you deal when the two becomes one?
It' not fair! I just won't believe she's gone -
She'll come back around the house and sit on the lawn!
I can't go it alone - I just can't handle this
How did a walk in the park go so amiss?
'I want her back! I want to lie with her in our bed! '
But - I don't understand... Unless - I'm dead? !

To My Best Friend

Miles are between us - this much is true
But still that is no reason to be blue!
I promise I’ll be back before too long,
Until that time we both have to be strong.

Climate Change

Winter is warmer and summer is hotter.
Lakes are holding less and less water.
Something is happening to Earth as we know it -
And the Arctic Circle is starting to show it!

I'M Moving Away

I’m moving away, but I’ll be back.
I look out my window; the sky is black.
Ontario’s not bad, though far away,
Still I wish that I could stay.
