Parting

Poem By Nellie L. Truxal

Come sing to me another song before we have to part,
A song of promises and love to ease may aching heart.
Your country calls and you must go so others may be free.
I'll miss your arms, your tender kiss, your loving words to me.
You are the essence of my life for you are part of me
As I am part of you my love, in steadfast constancy.
My thoughts and prayers go with you wherever you may be,
On desert sands in foreign lands, airborne or on the sea.
And so my prayers will follow you, I'll leave you in God's care.
To bring you safely home again will be my earnest prayer.
So sing to me another song before we have to part,
A song of tenderness and love to heal my breaking heart.

Homeless

You, who have no home and no soft place to lay your head,
Do you have memories to keep you warm on cold dark nights?
Do you dream of other days when you sheltered in a home
With family and friends to share your fire?

Nocturne

Day's end brings a gentle breeze like the touch of a lover's hand
I stop and listen to the sounds as shadows lengthen on the land.
I hear the laughing children as they wander home from play,
Content with all the magic hours that have filled their day.
