An Ending Never to Be


Once in a while; Well, maybe a bit more often,
I find myself reliving those moments of first sorrows-
The first results of a day gone bad-
A night with an ending never to be-
You remember that day? That night?
Those faces? Those tears? You do remember them; donít you?
Or is it just me that canít throw away all those used up
One would think by now, they could be discarded, without
ever looking back-
But do we dare? Should we even try? Should we want too?


Each year as that day approaches, I promise myself Iíll
just let it go on by-
But then, here they come- Rising up to the top-
Overflowing. Flooding the cavity of my heart- My soul-
And I ask? Who am I to try and bury those I never knew-
I have not that right! I am not my own keeper;
Not on this day.


I turn to recognize much more than pain-
Way more than memory-
Itís a force far greater than I have ever known-
and Still; Still I can hear the battle cries of centuries old-
and the battle cries of years to come-
I know each of them by name- The same name-
Iíve granted them all their entitlements-
Their place in history; Their place within me-
They are now and will forever remain a part of me-
and whether we like it or not- A part of each of us-


No, we canít forget; Nor should we try; Nor, should we want too.

Welcome back: no one writes more beautiful, meaningful, compassionate poetry such as you; you honor the spirits of those lost with dignity. The entire poem, especially the last sentance, is spot ON. Well done.

(((((HUGS))))) and love, Karla.

Hold on to those memories for as long as you can. The older you get, the more difficult it becomes to remember them all.

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 8/30/2007
Lisa, your poem is beautiful. Holding on to those memories gives us a bridge to all we have been, to all we have become, and to all we have known. They are an extension of our personal universe, and from that perspective we should cherish them--even the bad things because they have taught us lessons that made us grow.

Now, for a bit of witticism: When you get my age and the memories start hiding in the cavities of your mind, you will ponder and wish like the devil you could recall all those precious memories.
Reviewed by La Belle Rouge Poetess Of The Heart 8/30/2007
Memories can be precious or painful Lisa but it's for sure we can't control their march through our mind. Powerful write, good to read you again.
