You Did Not Go

Poem By Missy Lynn

I saw you yesterday standing on sandy seashore
You turned away
I spoke but there was no response
All I saw were archangel wings
And the face of someone I used to know
I heard you laugh yesterday in a crowd
But I looked to see a stranger
I pondered and knew that you were there
You did not go
I felt a presence yesterday in bed before sleep
You soul was helping g me drift
An angel there was signing me to slumber
There was a song I heard yesterday,
That reminded me of you,
And your loving presence shone
I know you are still here
You did not go

Remember Then And Now

Remember little jack sprat
Remember three little pigs
Remember all those fairy tales
That seemed so real to us a kids

(wind) Stealing The Calm Of Night

The calm of night is rustled
By gentle voices upon the breath of wind
The stillness that covers crackled under
The feet of evening’s bitterest gust

Trust Is

Trust is
A light that shines in your eyes
Bright and flickering
As a candle in the breeze

A Doofus Is Killing My Frienship

Do you know the feeling
That it is to lose a friend?
To have someone so close
Shatched away?


Out reach out stretched hand
Mercifully clinging to life
Do not let it slip


Sweat beads down my face
90 degrees Toiling over fire
I never complained in this
(I cook, I clean)
