In Your Honor

I am setting my poetry collection ”This Song” up for free download on March the 31 and April the first, as an e-book.

This will be in the honor of two of the most important persons in my life, and to mark the birthday of my young mare Tardis. She is turning four years old on April the first and it will be the first birthday she gets to celebrate with us.

March the 31 marks the two year date of the day my dear sweet Legacy died.

April first was Amalia’s birthday for 17 years. She would have turned 19 this year if her heart had not failed.

So in remembrance of Amalia and Legacy, both of who should have been here much longer, both of who will always stay in my heart, and not to let life be overshadowed by death, not to let the future be darkened by the past, in celebration of Tardi’s birthday, help me spread the word.

After all, the title piece, This Song, was written last year, on April first, the first April first I spent in 14 years, without Amalia. This Song was always about true friendship, about the most important girlfriend I ever had. My dark mare.

This Song

The winter snow is falling

On a freezing April’s day

The life that has been stolen

Slowly fades away

 

The wind that has been blowing

Across the frozen grounds

Howls within the emptiness

Of a life that ceased to be

 

The flame burned so brightly

The passion were so strong

The spark of life so radiant

Now it’s just this song

 

The echo of your heartbeat

Still follow me around

Your gentle spirit linger

Where nothing can be found

 

The flame burned so brightly

The passion were so strong

The spark of life so radiant

Now it’s just this song

 

The winter snow is falling

Where spring should have arrived

The cold seem to have settled

Within this heart of mine
