Poetry: LIVE TO GIVE by Jacqueline Miller-Audeh

Genre: Loss

 Waiting seemed to be the norm
They never thought how it made her feel scorned

Many times she did not understand
So all she did was take a stand

She would stand no matter what for what her heart felt was right.
After all everyone knew she would never have enough to really take flight.
But she could fight till the end
That is how time taught her spend

Some wait a little while live the life of dreams.
She waited and still waits to have a life free from there seems

She wondered if it would be ever happen
You know the basic things that make a life.
The things that she could only admire and know would never be in her life.

Funny how they never got enough
Enough of trying to teach her tough.

Tough was not her lesson.
She had and learned enough.

No one ever thought about love or compassion.

Those she knew too well
But, they too did not stay too well
Only her heart would swell

Still on she waited….
I hope she gets a little resemblance of life.

For living is not to be a strife.
She need a life to live.
Not a life to give.

Together – You and I, Poetry by Sarah Colliver

Walk with me once again-

Chat about the news like we used to.

When my eyes are closed,

The magic wand is waved

And you return to me.

Together – You and I
by Sarah Colliver

Walk with me once again-

Chat about the news like we used to.

When my eyes are closed,

The magic wand is waved

And you return to me.

I have the key to bring you back-

If only for those darkness hours

Amidst my slumber.

Together we share moments again.

For I carry you around

Within my aching heart

Which heals, but will never truly mend.

So please dear Mum,

Keep seeking my open door.

I will leave on a light and welcome you home,

And through my dreams

Together you and I will steal our time.

FLY
by Carolyn Hucker

Inside this cage is a bird that flies high and swift.
It is bright shining and free
And fearless.

Each night its earthbound body’s shed
It becomes a greater me
Limitless

It’s choices are without number,
To run or fly or just to Be.
It sparks

To cast a shadow on the clouds,
To run among the fallen leaves,
To make angels in the snow,
To climb among the summer hills
To leave the cast-off broken skin
And breathe and dance and spin
And just be that uncaged bird
Without the key of sleep.
