Tribute To Virginia Tech

Poem By Alfred Ramos

With the taste of tears upon my tongue
I grieve for those old and young
Taken too soon from everyone
Too soon to see a black sun
I think I hear an angel crying
From too many dreams dying
I can hear Gabriel’s sad refrain
As we once again discover pain
What was the last whisper spoken?
A promise that will be broken
I wonder if by some lost regret
We will learn to forget
In these moments of despair
Where we breathe the same air
Will we learn to forgive?
Find more strength for which to live
How many tears will fill the void?
Caused by some paranoid
And of course there is no answer
For this on going cancer
With one faithful glance
They lost the chance
To perform one final dance
So we pay tribute with a prayer
And a silent applause
Because, because, because

A Mother's Love

I held her hand as tight as I could
Even though I knew it would not do much good
Her breath was shallow and weak
If only my eyes could speak

***dead And Gone

I didn’t attend your funeral
I hated you that much
I did send roses
The thorns for you to touch

I Keep Telling Myself

I keep telling myself
That things will change
New ideas will rise for us to rearrange
Chaos will bury itself in red tape


There’s a little boy
A fragile tin soldier toy
I know who he is

Love Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Love doesn’t live here anymore
It walked out and slammed the door
It packed it memories and faded photographs
It took its dreams, it took its laughs

When Love Is The Answer

Admit to your deepest desire
Know that your path is lined with fire
Crying will only get you so far
It won’t help you cleanse the scar
