GOODBYES

We say our goodbyes
assuming this may be the final end.
And amidst our laughs and cries
we walk away as better friends.

Assuming this may be the final end,
we reminisce about adventures shared.
We walk away as better friends;
we realize how much we’ve cared.

We reminisce about adventures shared,
and know our hearts are sweetly blessed,
we realize how much we’ve cared
now until the day we rest.

Know our hearts are sweetly blessed
and our souls have been as well,
from now until life’s soft caress;
until death’s fatal knell.

Our souls have been as well
connected, and conjoined in heart and mind
until death’s fatal knell,
these are the ties that bind.

Connected and conjoined, in heart and mind
and amidst our laughs and cries,
these are the ties that bind,
and we sadly say our goodbyes.

GOOD WORDS, CUSS WORDS

With great knowledge
comes great responsibility.
From the cradle, we press our head
against life’s grindstone
for experience, and the resulting flat spot
becomes a wonderful teacher.
Holy hell, who wants a round
pumpkin head anyway?
Keep stirring the primordial soup,
what you learn will help your cause!
Damn it!
