Did I Know Your Name ?

The sounds of gentle humming  , sweet and clear  , fill the empty spaces .

How were we to know that you were leaving us so soon ?

YOUR love and honor was alive in each breath but I didn’t  know your name .

Dedication to a future in your vision crushed in the blink of someone else’s  eye .

The ache that has been left in your place so raw ,  so completely exposed .

Your name won’t be forgotten but I’d rather not know it .

You were here to live and to love .  Cry over losses and laugh with your heart .

Your sweet  hums in the hallways will echo in the vacant spaces  forever .

‘ Curious ‘

In the gentle thoughts curiosity  grows  .

Leading the charge and opening the doors ,

My curiosity  grows .

Look here ,  now there  . expanding this life .

Contemplation  and creation

Into  Art  I  go .

Their  courage lives in their  willing hearts .

It shines brightly in their vulnerability and in their  continuing resurrection  of hope .

Hope in circumstances that most would proclaim to be hopeless .

Shinning on in Courage !

Stamina : The Grace of Homeless Youth

Stamina

Stamina

I am here ,  standing and staying .

As the planets in the Universe remain  ,

so , too , do I .

My gentleness is hidden and stamina remains  .

Does anyone see me ?

Stamina remains .

Where will I sleep tonight …will I sleep tonight ?

Stamina remains .

Where is my future ?

Stamina remains .
