The Last Drop

After the last drop dried
She withered and sighed
Slowly turning lifeless and pale
Hiding behind her smoky veil
Her tired eyes
Longing for signs
Of relief from the scorching sun
But sadly she got none
Only impending pangs of despair
Gazing up in a sanguine stare
Prayers escaped her cracked lip
A wish for a filling sip
Of one last drop of rain
To end her gnawing pain
Her children were all dead
Agonizing death sent them to bed
She had warned them time and again
Yet they exhausted the elixir in vain
The irresponsible children
That killed their brethren
Celebrating happy days
Living with their wasteful ways
Soiled the spring of her beautiful life
Now finally ends the strife
The aftermath taking its toll
Finally killing the mother of them all
When she took her last breath
The Gods celebrated her death
From heavens fell a drop
A downpour that didn’t stop
Until it wiped clean the slate
Re-writing the mother’s fate
“Don’t worry child, you’ll live
There’s more life for you to weave”
The autumn transformed to rain
Mother Earth was alive again!

you never said goodbye…

You never said “I’m leaving”
You never said “goodbye”
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.

There are no words to tell you
Just what I feel inside
The shock, the hurt, the anger
Might gradually subside

A million times I’ll need you
A million times I’ll cry
If Love alone could have saved you
You never would have died

In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fill

It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home

Things will never be the same
And although it hurts so bad
I will smile whenever I hear your name
And be proud you were my Dad…
