THE FACES OF APRIL

....by Christine Ross in memory of Lucas Christopher Ross 1979 - 2001





Yesterday's visions
Still drift through my mind,
Of springtime and laughter
When life was so kind.





The world reawakened
From slumberous dream.
The faces of April
Forever remain.





Presently visions
Reveal a new face,
Of angels and sorrow
And death in this place.





Forever in slumber.
Awakened no more.
The faces of April
Like never before.





Tomorrow's visions
Please take me away,
To springtime and laughter,
In that tranquil place.





My world soon awakened
From slumberous dream.
The faces of April
Forever remain.

FIVE YEARS

....by Christine Ross in memory of Lucas Christopher Ross 1979 - 2001


Five stolen years.
Your life is gone.
Five unjust years.
It seems so wrong.

Five fading years.
No sparkling eyes.
Five doubtful years.
I wonder why.

Five painful years.
Wounds are open.
Five fractured years.
Hearts are broken.

Five clinching years.
There's no more touch.
Five silent years.
Your voice is hushed.

Five tearful years
I miss your laugh.
Five breathless years.
I only gasp.

Five saddened years.
I need your smile.
Five distant years.
Too many miles.

Five complex years.
A winding road.
Five aging years.
Still growing old.

Five closer years.
Hello my son.
Five fewer years.
My journey's done.

DEAR GOD, THE LAST FIVE YEARS

....by Christine Ross in memory of Lucas Christopher Ross 1979 - 2001


Dear God I am just wondering
where you've been for the last five years?
I've called your name and prayed to you
but all I've ever gotten is tears.

You took my son away from me
and left me all alone to grieve.
I've tried to be understanding
and have faith in what I can't see.

I never hear a word from you
but my son always visits me.
He brings comfort from the other side
while you leave me on bended knee.

I've been so angry and wondered why
you would forsake me as your child.
But lately I've begun to wonder
if you've listened all the while.

I believe that my son visits me
because of your amazing grace.
And that I could never see him
without your light upon his face.

Dear God I am just wondering
where I've been for the last five years.
I called your name and prayed to you
but you were already here.
