Memory

written by: Luiz Syphre

Thus we meet
one last time
sands in glass
pebbles alas pass

where happiness once amassed
now bitterness fills the empty vast
our kids have grown so fast
with curiosity and love
they once asked and asked

why to nothingness was I cast?
is it your happiness I'm aghast?
darkness stings like shrapnel glass
our memories from walls of time
you've sandblast!

thus we meet, a last time
once so beautiful, now it grimes
day and night, memories grind
Hoping again, bliss to find

we cannot accept the fate we've signed
to each other blind
even as you are my only life bind
our roads no longer twine

thus we meet, this last time
to past winds
forever forward confined
my beautiful queen defined
now just memory as outlined...

I immigrated to the states from Mexico at age 12 and I quickly fell in love with poetry after my grandfather read some of his poems to me. However, at 18, I had a young family and that left very little time for this endevour as I started working to support us. I returned to adult school to finish my diploma. At that time I developed a severe depression that I still struggle with to this day, but I found it to be a great source of inspiration as well. Today I live in Los Angeles and I'm divorced. I have two children I see whenever possible and two adult kids. Both my Grandfather and his brother are award winning poets and journalists, with one, (Bartolome Delgado DeLeon) having a street, library and a prestigious national poet award in his honor.

Most of my pieces come from personal experience and true to me. Sometimes my material is raw, other times murdeous, and yet other times romantic, but always me, 100% authentic guaranteed.
