Shandi's Poem

Just One More Day, Just One More Night

Just one more moment to hear the song
just one more memory soft and long

The clouds will sing so near the sky
night will mummer her soft goodbye

I hear these voices now floating near
they cry out loud with every tear

Through broken hearts these souls will beat
until I see soils trodden feet

Hard the times we see and know
hands are warn from cold of snow

These hands are cracked from rock hard soil
the blisters bleed from long days toil

Again I hear these memories
 soft and long forever these

Into the sky the blackbirds swing
down to the earth where children sing

Lifting hearts with careful ease
carrying goodbyes across the seas

Until we meet, once again
until we speak, as to a friend
