In The Dead of Night

In the deep  quiet of the night there  used to  live an endless invitation to set your spirit to soaring .  A time set aside  for discovery and an opportunity to break the boldest or the most  mysterious bonds holding onto you .

Now in the dead  of the night are  the  children . Children that did not  ask for this life . Children being criminalized  simply  for being alive . Children being  whisked through airports like some strange secret , like a lie .

The wailing ,  the visceral sounds of the wailing of the innocent  babes and their Mamas being torn apart will follow these men in charge to their graves . They don’t know it yet . But it will . Haunting a spirit  for evermore will be the suffering caused by the deeds of men with no heart and no soul .

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 .
