Pieces of Life [Poem]

Pieces of life
Corners of strife
Family and friends
I may never see again
Wistful sounds of children playing
Promises failed and empty sayings
Regrets of the past
A tunnel of sad years
Finding smiles that bridged the fears
Laughing with companions through the gap
Waiting no more and escaping traps
Although I am happy to see the sun at last
Yet there are things I am glad of in the past
The souls and spirits I have loved from then
The triumphs and falls in the monstrous den
Still I love how the wind howls and sings
With the rain falls and the growth it brings

About Rhett Kennedy

An east coast transplant living in San Jose CA, and loving it. I am a master of useless trivia (medieval and ancient culture, a smattering of politics, ukulele and fan of most forms of music). I know life insurance, audio visual technology, commerical and fine art nd love to sing scottish ballads. I'm happily strange and enjoy strange people as a result.
