Limited Heartbeats

Poem By Uriah Hamilton

When things slip away,
They might be gone to stay.
A child’s innocent affection
Is relegated to history
By the evolution of time
That brings her to the shore of adulthood.

On any given day
You don’t know what
You might have to leave behind.

Touch me this moment,
Your hand upon my chest,
These limited heartbeats
May disappear in a breath.

If you wake with me
Tomorrow morning,
Kiss my eyes;
We may not see each other
The following sunrise,
But I do love you right now.

That our eyes are sore and red;

We gaze down too long at our feet

Where the lonely purchase their wine;
Her boyfriend had left her behind

Of hopeful but fleeting romance.

Of a poet who died in the gutter;
That dying voice
Then seeped into his soul

Beauty Of Life

I don’t desire to wear a sad face too long
When I know I live in a world of flowers and birds
And that the evening will usher in a sky of scattered stars,
When I know hopeful prayers and songs

Healing Endurance

Misfortunes can be intense
In the hour of sadness,
But even earthquake ravages
Get rebuilt until a skyline
