The End

The End

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

He bore for her life's burdens Soothed the children of their tears Was the rock all others broke upon Left fond memory of his years

"


Biff Morgan




I fled on wings of starlit hue

across the golden sky

Up into the beyond I flew

watching my dreams go by

 

Shadows echoed love lost dreams

as memories of my past

Obscuring visions of my trust

all characters I knew last

 

The love that I so longed for

the beauty that I would need

Said live life as emotion

set forth by a holy creed

 

In battered rags of ancient might

my god sat on his throne

Viewing me in tortured sight

turning my sins to stone

 

My life passed by its silent way

asking of him just why

For now it's gone and left of me

I know what it's like to die

A poem like a canvas when we bring several different dabs of paint to express our grief. We point to the sky ... people ... the divine ... and a promise to ourselves not to forget the love. Put in place in such haphazardness that we can't help but feel your trembling ... at the very thought of life's unexpectedness ... its suddenness ... and the experience of immortality. Taking place as it does in the midst of our own endeavors in life ... it sometimes suggests a similar message for all of us.

Nicely done Huckleberry ... certainly one of your best ... in the way it showcases the responses of the passions in their natural qualities. Well done.

I love the tone of this beautiful, heartfelt homage to your uncle. It breathes of history and acceptance, remembrance and recognition of a life that touched so many others. God bless him for his service to our country and I hope that he found the open arms of loved ones waiting on the other side.

i love the way you spill your stories and heart across the cafe .. always a treat to read your poems ... i can never leave until the music ends .. so i sit and enjoy the presence of the visions you inspire .. i see that Biff passed in 2000 .. is that correct? and he fought in Viet Nam? ... the Flag covers some of the engravings ... too young to go to war Tate! and too young to die ... wonderful tribute to your kin ... your third (and middle) verse is perfectly placed and says it all .. putting the reader in the drivers seat of passing on suits me fine ... i hope my own death will be like that ... you keep his memory alive Tate .. nice job!! prayers to all the family
