I wrote this the first time I went to the graves of my sons, Marc and Danny, who died three days apart at the ages of 19 and 22 years of age from muscualr dystrophy. The poem is a finalist in the Famous Poets Society Contest of 2005



Life is short and sweet.

Death is final and sudden.

Our dreams are misty memories,

Of days long departed,

But not forgotten.


Marc and Danny are gone.

But around the corner,

And down the bedroom hall,

There is an echo that returns,

Again and again.


Autumn is here and bright leaves

Fall upon the small graves.

In their rustlings I hear

Sweet voices whispering.

"We were there."


In the moving shadows,

I can see those beautiful faces.

In the gleaming water,

Soft brown eyes seem to shine.

And I remember.


Yes I recall those laughing eyes,

And their curling black hair.

Those are my sleeping memories,

Which suddenly awake and make me wonder

About life and death

Such a lovely tribute to both your sons. Your words show how deep your love was and still is for your sons. The loss of a child is tragic, and two lose two of them within three days of each other is devasting. God Bless you for having so much strength.
