i care

why’d you cry today
was it because of the pain
that comes with love
are your children healthy
your partner, also
how are you, my friend
will you survive the day
i ask because i care
we’ve gone days we
have not spoken, written
or called exchanging our
life's wares
my efforts will be more
from now on to be there for you
if you wish to cry, my shoulder
will be comfort with a warm embrace
i know i can’t fix your world
nor you mine but we can assuage
the pain if we’re there for each other
showing that we care
you know it is said
when the burden is heavy
if it is shared the weight
will be lessen and can be
carried till its end
so call me and i will you
let’s talk and tell each other
about those burdensome things
so that our days will come to be
bountiful by knowing someone cares

spot of wisdom, maybe

once again i open my eyes waging a battle
with the enticement of slumber where the
cradle of my bed with which i shared a moment
of sweet oblivion whispers asking me…
why denounce our comfort, wait awhile to awake

but then the day calls me, also, with its delight
and its mornings tinge of a soft grey
and it says to me…i shall feed you with verve
from my sun’s energy and provide you with
my day’s script for without this your night
would not be filled with dreams

and so, awake, i ponder the day’s calling
to be one of tender struggles, of smiles
and laughter yet also bringing forth pangs
with tears of seeing plight but knowing
i shall consume some wisdom of life and at
it’s end i shall once again introduce the day
to night and reminding them… that in life
there is darkness and there is light
