    *11* The Storyteller

    He had a store of stories
    he saved to tell the kids,
    tales we heard a million times,
    he had no other love to give.

    Circle of boredom on faces,
    as the tales were repeated again.
    He knew wed heard it all before
    but hed nothing else to give.

    Now that his chair sits empty,
    his coat on the nail by the door,
    Id give all to hear the stories
    I heard a million times before.

    Poignantly true... I wish I had paid attention when Dad talked about his childhood.... sadly, he is gone, and I would love to know now, all the things he wanted to share with me... You have a delicate way of exposing the truth, and I love the lesson here... very well done...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
    love leaves a memory no one can steal....
