A book of poetry by award-winning poet Bryan P.T. Riley

In the Catholic church, a requiem mass is traditionally a funeral mass in Latin, reserved for heads of state. I wrote this book during a period of mourning. My father had recently passed away, my energies were increasingly devoted to daily routines: work, running a household, time with my family... the things we all get caught up in. I began to feel like the everyday things were stealing my identity. As I wrote this book, I began to realize how much of it is a tribute to my dad. Through my exploration of my own feelings of loss and the subsequent hope that we can live forever through the lives we enrich, I feel this volume will be of great value to anyone who has experienced loss in theri own lives. There is great power in words, and I hope I have used mine wisely. My heartfelt thanks to all who have supported me. I hope this book brings some form of relief to those hearts in distress.

Bryan P.T. Riley

Excerpt
As silence
washes over
the world
which is my
Universe,
the fears
which threaten
to strip me away
settle soft about me
like old friends
stopping by to
pay a visit-
And they sit,
and say nothing,
just look on
endlessly with
their sad little eyes,
their mournful expressions-
Yet I know
in an instant
they would drive
me to my knees,
begging for
mercy like a
simpering
child....
