Written in memory of our grandson.

                   Eve of September


Quiet August eve on  brink of September

awful early morn, try not to remember.

Peaceful slumber jolted, ringing telephone

son full of grief, crying—oh, so alone.

Words spoken in panic cut deep to the core

“We won’t see him,” he said softly, “anymore.”

Steel belted radials, concrete mourned the hum

break neck speed, darkened abyss, on the run.

Screeching tires, running feet, wide open door

all stood in silence, embraced, not as before.

Lights turned out as broken beads shard

fell shattered dreams upon bleeding hearts.

Time erased, suspended mid air

no going back, can’t change the lair.

Dark steed gallops hard, thundering roar

away from this life not seen anymore.

"Eve of September" was written with ink mixed with tears with words dictated by a crying soul.

Poet, You have rhythm, You deliver profound message through an excellent WRITING.

May Your heart and those of Your beloved Ones find in Togetherness, the console of Eternal Mother's LOVE.

My respect, and admiration.
