head on a pillow


some days I wish not to rise
but then I think of those
who have neither a bed
or cove to rest their heads
and sleep

the day begins the sun rises
from the east
and the clouds will hover
trees will dance in the wind
birds will use them as fodder

today my head shall lift
give praise that my eyes
did open to witness a new day
I shall walk to find someone
to give a pillow away

smile


The day is well
 if there’s a smile
  before you’d walk a block
 now it’s a mile

 so when you walk away
you need not turn around
for your smile will last
 into another day
 
and like the art
     you’ve painted on your chest
the one next to your heart
your smile
is my very best

will it matter


throughout this
 
 
My existence
 
      I will have given much
 
 
o   received much

 

      I will have written

 

           words     
 
 
§  spoken well
 
 
mine eyes will have captured beauty
 
o   stolen many souls of trees

 
 birds, rivers and oceans

 
     maybe
     
o   my soul
 
 
                will have been received by those who love
 
§  much the way I did them
 
 
                                       and when my soul shall rise and shares


 the realm of all those who came before me
 
 
                   hopefully I will have mattered
 
 
and all this                                                  will not
 
 
§  have been for naught
