Family Again

It’s not that time of the year without
The sun setting in the west earlier than usual
Time becoming celebratory, shedding its torment like a second skin
The smell of mum’s cooking emanating from the kitchen
Colourful lights adorning the trees
Hearts brimming with sweet cheer,
As all prepare to welcome the new year.

Remembrance

In the deep of night
When the stars shine bright
In the early morn
As dew drops glitter
On a busy afternoon

Long forgotten…half remembered
A melody that dances
A memory that bursts forth.
On a balmy evening
As the sun bids its adieu
And the birds sing a farewell
I remember you.

As one’s husband cut down the other’s,
Slaves as they were to their own purpose.
