Memory Locked in Rhyme


Mathew Keoki Robello

In Loving Memory of Michael James Heyerdahl

Precious dreams in time worn memory along slow seas slide
a breakdown of the moments life has held in a glide
a thought of you and a diamond tear starts to fall
a drifting remembrance of how we went through it all
though alas at times i feel your presence near
and brought back to me in twilight everything that i hold dear
in conflict, pain and sadness rumble on every breeze
but to know you are watching me brings my heart to an ease
eyes which are seen in the rays of the setting sun
there is still more i must do life is not yet done
in the latest of hour the moon does light your face
then again i am carried to that oh so special place
waves crash upon the shore dancing in the light of the moon
a comforting thought within me is that we'll be together soon
floating through my dreams in endless cascades of time
a little boy and his smile forever locked in rhyme....
