My Blond Hair, Blue Eyed Man

My reason for living was slowing dying before my eyes,
And, there were no explanations or whys,
It made me wonder if believing and having faith was a wasted lie,
My tears fell but no sound came---I could not cry.

There would be no life without my blond, soft blue eyed man,
Not another being on this earth could take his place---no one can.
I felt a chill in the room as he looked up and smiled at something I could not see,

Was his Angel here to take him from me?

He held my hand for the last time, and kissed each fingertip,
How will I breathe without his lips mastering mine---never again?
How can I pray to God who took him and end with amen?

He said, “Goodbye my Baby Blue” then he kissed my eyes,
He loved my light blue eyes as they questioned him now---with so many whys.
Our children gathered around his bed,
Each touching their daddy for the last time---as life gently escaped to a
painless place---his body was dead.

Not one of us moved as we felt his spirit leave his body and floated upward
to the light,
His mother and father waited for him and all was right.

We sensed his spirit visited often, as we could smell his ‘Old Spice’ after shave,
He always wore it—even to his grave.

Years passed as friends say to love again,
He was the only man for me---walk slowly my Darling I will be there soon---amen.

Walk Slowly and Wait for Me

I heard my mother say that dreadful day,

When in 1805 my father was taken away.

As we stood on the frozen Georgia ground,

I hear her say, “Walk slowly and wait for me”

it was a tearful sound,

“For I know.” she said---“My Darling you are

Heaven bound.”

An Indian raid upon our land took my father away--- a very

kind and loving man,

Together the family stood around the snow covered grave

to hear the bagpipes sound---for his Scottish Clan.

The bagpipe music is the saddest sound on this earth,

It bounces off one’s heart--- to give the soul a rebirth.

My mother tears were non-stopable that day,

When destiny marched on this icy Georgia ground---

 to make this his eternal bed--- because death

took my dad away.

No more hugs, smiles or sweet looks from his blue eyes,

No more---“Daughter, I have a big surprise.”

His Texas Leopard dog, “King” did not leave his grave,

He grieved for his master who was so brave.

My life will forever be changed, no father---

no more,

On our happiness--- fate has shut the door.

I will be compassionate for my mother,

And she will need me and my brother.

I will forever hear her say,” Walk slowly and wait for me.”

I will follow behind you my darling, you will see.”
