You touch the bodies of the living
And mark them for dead
A plague of their own flesh

Everyday I wake up 
Realizing that you are gone
Reality keeps forcing me
To accept that you are done

Finished with all the chaos
This earthly world can bring
Through with all the pain and problems
And all those simple things

Am I so selfish to wish that you
Were here alive on earth?
Am I wrong to wish you back
Just so I won't hurt?

All the things I never said
Strong feelings I never shared
I took your love for granted and put you off
Because I just knew you would always be there

I pushed you away because I needed space
To be young, live the college life, and grow
But I was gonna get back right with you
I swear
But now you'll never know

You left behind family and friends
Lovers and colleagues the same
I still can't believe those boys that day
That bullet
It must've had your name

But now you're gone
They took your life
I'm sure for no worthy cause
Am I wrong for hoping 
They can't sleep at night
For motivating this unjust loss?

But it is me who lies awake
At night thinking about you
What ifs and why nots run through my mind
Sometimes I hate that I fell in love with you

No matter how hard I cry or pray
I know you're not coming back to me
I'll never forget the around-the-face kisses
Your love for me ran deep 

I thank God everyday for granting me
Your presence on Saturday before you died
I hadn't seen you in months
And there you were, that day, to my surprise

I can only wait until the day
That we'll meet again
I know that you will still be you
Funny, crazy, a friend

You were never perfect
You weren't an angel by far
But d*mn boy you were you 
And even before you died
I knew I would never be able 
To replace you

Your smile, your eyes
Your laughter, your words
Are embedded in my mind
And forever you'll live in my heart and dreams
Until the end of my life

Sluggish and tired she awakens from
her sleep
To go in check in on her babies she's
careful and she creeps

Through the open door, she sees them
all snuggled close
She goes into the room to cover up
their little toes

In the morning the noise is loud and
the grits are getting cold
She calls them to the table what a
sight to behold

The clothes she ironed carefully are
dishelved and kind of loose
She tells them get there self together
fix there clothes and tie their shoes

In the afternoon when their gone she's
still can't get no rest
Because she has to go to work with her
littlest baby on her chest

When she gets home after scrubbing
dishes, windows and floors
She takes the little money she has and
sends them to the stores

They forget the bacon and onions and
the greens don't taste good
And it's too late at night to send them
back out in that neighborhood

So in despair she weeps with her hands
up to her eyes
And in comes her husband with pizza
and it takes her by surprise

After their nice hot bath and tucks
them in for the night
And finally lays down and turns off
her kerosene light

And in her dreams she holds her
children and to her they snuggle
This is just one day in the life of a
mothers endless struggle

Inquisitive I view, the couples everywhere;
Peaceful and glee, as both lives are shared.
When will it be my turn, I start to ponder;
Deeper into thought I begin to wander. 

Burning like wildfire, love will always spread;
The greatest of feelings, at least that’s what I've read.
Giving everything I’ve got, I willingly dare;
So why am I empty, with no one to care?

As time trickles by, and my faith depletes;
I have to stand strong, resist conceding defeat. 
I’ve heard of ‘the soul mate’, the one, the only;
Although hope is restored, I am still so lonely.

You’re what I pray, before bed and meal;
That promised emotion, you’ll grant me to feel.
Night after night, I know you are out there;
A bond like ours is most certainly rare.

As doubt as my enemy, I know I can beat;
Until the day we are destined to meet.
Eternally loyal, eternally true;
My tears will freeze, before I stop waiting for you.

I knew a man, he was the greatest man 
I've known in all my days.
Then one day God called on him, 
and now he's gone away.

I loved this man with all my heart,
and in my heart he'll stay.
Continuing to lift me up,
and lead me when I stray.

This great man he was my Dad, 
he meant the world to me.
He was always there supporting me,
even when he disagreed.

He was my rock, my sounding board,
He could always make me see.
The things in life that matter most, 
are truth and family.

Even though eye to eye, 
we do not always see.
I promise Dad to live my life,
with love and honesty.

I miss you Dad so very much, 
and deeply it pains me.
I can't believe I won't hear your voice, 
your face no longer see.

I hope you know you're my hero, 
and this you''ll always be.
I will find strength, I'll carry on, 
I'll make you proud of me.

Until the day we meet again,
I know waiting you will be.
In paradise, I'll see you there,
with your arms wide open for me.

Simply "Snuffed" Out

We bumped along on the dirty road
My tears still streaming fast
I just knew this was my final day
I just knew it was my last

After what seemed a long time
We finally stopped
Someone roughly forced me out
After some walking, on the floor I was dropped

I hit the dirty concrete with a thud
My head cracked against the floor
I groaned in pain
And I pleaded for no more

I heard clicking and shuffling
Sliding and hushing
Something was being set up
And they were rushing

I was picked up and tied down
Forced upright, in a chair
My blindfold untied
I wondered why I was there

Trembling and crying
I took in my surroundings here
A man looked at me from behind something
He pressed a button and leered

A whirring, filming camera before the chair
There was horrifying clarity
Cold, dangerous gun to my head
A signal and I was no more, you see

"Wait! What are you doing?!"
A watching teen with blond hair said
"You're not supposed to-"
"Shut up," said the wielder of the gun. "She's dead."

"You were only supposed to scare her."
"That's not what my boss told me."
"It was only a joke, a joke."
"We're finished here, but you wanna be next? Can it, Goldy."
