Parallel universe

Here on earth
We mourn for our loss and pain
While in a parallel universe 
Angels celebrate 
for their gain

Compassion

You say, a world of compassion, 
And I think of rainbows and unicorns
And kittens and new borns
Then you say, the meaning of compassion is, suffering with.
I wonder what kind of myth that is.

Nephews

First I had one nephew
And then I had two.
Few years later,
I had another, 
who knew?
Soon there'll be a whole crew
of nephews, old and new.
When will it all stop?
Just one niece
will do.

today

My grandma died today
My head hurt like hell.
I know I'll see her one day
in heaven where all is well.

When we meet again
I'll give her a great big hug
She won't recognize me
Because I'll be ninety three.

Daughter

The stranger emerges from water
as the wife becomes a mother
Then the stranger meets her father
Whose son is now her brother

Idealist

An idealist
Is something much different 
from an ideal list 
Or a list of ideals,
a listless dealer,
Or a dealer of lists.

An idealist 
doesn't deal so much with things the eyes can see 
as much as ideas that could be

Sometimes an idealist 
Might even write stuff
Such as this.

Prayer

Don't say a prayer for me
It's very unnecessary 
Why would God send an angel, see
When you're right next to me?
