Are you living well somewhere?

Return to Essays & Poems index

Where the sun never strays - beyond the moon
Past the notion of days, I hear a tune
Calling me back, welcoming me home
Calling me back To you, my blue eyed dream
We made you for the night
For you my blue eyed dream
Is it right?

When your mama and I Fulfilled our love
Had you started to cry- was that enough?
Did it give life stirring in her womb?
Did it give life to you my blue eyed child?
We made you without fear
Do you my blue eyed child –
Do you hear?

Are you out among the sideshows?
Does the wind still kiss your hair?
Is it easy when the pain goes?
Are you living – well – somewhere?

It is so hard to use the gift of life
Trying not to confuse live from survive
We gave so much – though we had more to give
We gave so much to you my blue eyed son
Your parents wish you joy
To you my blue eyed son
Darling boy

Are you out among the rainbows
Is your face still soft and fair?
Is it easy when the pain goes?
Are you living – well – somewhere?
