Archives For memories

A trail of breadcrumbs left behind

Memories grow stale and unfulfilling

Soon to be washed away in time’s cadence

The music will stop along with the dance

Memories of gold and silver too

Memories sad and sometimes blue

Life marches without falter

Often leading to the altar

Begging forgiveness for this or that

Striving for golden memories of you

Never to be recalled in bad taste

Life’s bread tossed away in the haste

I pray no pain when thinking of me

I wish to draw comfort and sweet melodies

I have regrets buried long ago

Mistakes made but the heart knows

My love reaches through times rings

After I am gone and spread my wings

Wishing to collect

Breadcrumbs of neglect

Devour, destroy and forgotten

Leaving only a trail of pure gold

Hoping you will follow and feed your soul

Think of me from time to time

When it is I, you want near

Hold on to times we endear

For my love for you will always be here

Footsteps of Time

Nae's Nest —  September 15, 2013 — 1 Comment

Painting love in my life

Vibrant and alive

Yellow shines bright

Forever shining with age

Memories long ago etched

Within the folds of golden days

Memories of today

Occurred so long ago

Time nearly passed me by

My eyes opened too slow

Wishing to retrace

The footsteps of time

Reliving happy days

Aged like fine wine

Life’s Song

Nae's Nest —  February 9, 2013 — Leave a comment

Her final hour

She walked over to the chair

Leaning back, she softly sang

Of memories sweet

Softer and softer

Her voice grew

Until her song was complete

Out on a musical note

She enters into a kingdom

Her life’s song has moved on

Her body at rest

A smile on her lips

Her soul has been blessed

Remote Control Time

Nae's Nest —  December 1, 2012 — Leave a comment

Who keeps tossing rocks in my road?

Every turn I stumble, falter and fall

Are the rocks getting heavier?

They look  so small

Optic illusion distorting the mind

Holding me in

This place and time

I keep making mistakes

Skinning my knees

Briars, thorns

And other disease

The load is too heavy

 Burden of despair

A hidden demon

Out of control

Squeezes the heart

Strangles the soul

Craving Life’s milk

How long will it take

Hanging on tight

Is it too late?

How long is this road?

How many rocks?

Where will it lead?

Please! Stop the clock!

All of these questions

Does anyone one know?

Where are the answers?

The beast in control

At his mercy

A mouse

Under a paw

Ready to be mauled

Pressed and tormented

Under the claw

Is one talon for me?

A terrible thought

Please set me free

Unable to think

In need a space

Where I can flee

Where I can lay

And souls can rest

To dream of the past



Longing to return

Remote control time

Zapping me back

To the birth of my boys

Or take me back

To Daddy’s arms

The safest place

No one can harm

There are memories

Yet to be stolen

Keeping them hidden

In a place of forlorn

A little bit dusty

In the folds of my mind

The pictures still there

Within a deep place

A calming effect

A soothing space

I will stay here

Away from the knife

As long as I can

I will

Enjoy life

Walking the shoreline

Allowing my thoughts to wander

Sitting by the seaside

Waves crashing

As I ponder

My thoughts

Drawing pictures in the sand

Happy times with my boys

Playing, laughter and other joys

The sound of the sea

A song to my years

Playing my past

Singing the years

My happy times

Paint pictures in the sand

Along with a few of the sad

Happy times

Washed out to sea

Telling a story

Living forever


And there is the sad

Damp salty tears

Memories dappled in fear

Rising up toward the sky

An angry wave

On the fly

Screaming in the wind

As it comes to the shore


It swallows all in site

Constant reminder

Tears of the past

Forgotten broadcast

Burial out to sea

In deep, dark, cold waters

Spellbound, I stand

While sad memories




Wiped out of my past

Forever gone

Colorul Patches

Nae's Nest —  August 6, 2012 — 4 Comments

Needle and thread motivating time

Colorful patches in an array

Patchwork quilt, stitching away

One patch for spring

All done in floral

Reminders of life

Decked out in morals

Time goes by

A stitch at a time

Colorful patches, for every year

Filled with memories

Of those held dear

There were hard times

Mingled with the good

But all of it a memory

Summer shines through

A seam at a time, sometimes shaded

With skies still blue and all stitched up

New memories created

A patch for the

Fall of another year

Reminders of death

Sometimes is near

As the leaves die off

And the colors fade

Pray the bad times

Will drift away

Melted in the snow

Of winter’s past

Whisk away in a

Snowstorm a

Winter’s blast

Thus another spring

Bursts forth

Bringing new life

Springing with hope

Sun shining upon

Brand new dreams

All stitch up in ribbons

And beautiful scenes

Dream Of Every Flavor

Nae's Nest —  July 25, 2012 — 2 Comments

I never dreamed of leaving

my sons

when they become young men

So many gifts left unopened

Just waiting beneath the pine

A few things never really needed

but just the same

Stayed on my mind

What seemed small back then

Is growing very tall

Things long forgotten

Precious memory

A dream of every flavor

Often I dreamed of a trip

After I’d retired

I want to find a beach

Secluded with cool nights and campfires

I dreamed of finally spending my time writing

My life’s dream

I want to be complete

My spiritual dream

I want to be with you

My soul’s dream

Captions, captions

Captions of the mind

Magic moments

Set in time

Flashes,  flashes

Passing by

Tiny particles

Time does fly

Moments making

It all worth while

Memories of love

Lifetime of smiles

Spirit, spirit

Look and you shall see

Little reminders

Of you and me

Drops of memories

Encased in rain

Evaporated in a cloud

Again to rain

Never forgotten

Never goodbye

Waiting a the portal

To be by your side

A new time awaits

New memories to make

Captions will drop

Ours to create

From the sky

To be claimed again

A favorite movie

Played over again

In a blink of the eye

In a drop of rain

Floating in a cloud

Riding on a wing


Played slow

Press ” time rewind”

Memories will flow

Riding on a wing

In a blink of the eye

Captions drop

To be claimed again

Never gone

But held

Dream Particles

Nae's Nest —  June 23, 2012 — 3 Comments

Remnants of ribbons

Hanging in the corners on my mind

Particles of dreams

Long left behind

Collecting dust bunnies

Thoughts of a young girl

Colorwheel spinning

Memories in a swirl

Thoughts of a young woman

Lost in a ribbon swirl

How time changes

Gemstones And Pearl

Deep down always the same

Now just pretending

Childhood outgrown

Never completely left behind

Another grain sown

She is who I started to be

She is the root of me

I think I will keep her

And the adult in me agrees

Bring Me Smiles

Nae's Nest —  June 4, 2012 — 4 Comments

You bring me smiles

You only call my name

You bring me sunshine

In a candle’s flame

You bring me warmth

In the summer’s rain

You bring me happiness

When you call my name


You are the

Butterflies flutter

The drums have a beat

The stars shine brighter

A heart has a beat

You are in all things

That brings me bliss

You bring me smiles

In the form of a kiss

You are everywhere I look

In every thing I feel

In the star’s twinkle

In the song

Of a Whippoorwill

I feel you in the wind

Brushing across my face

I see you in the moonlight

In a  falling star race

I hear you rustling

Through the leaves

The water’s ripple

Through the reeds


You bring me happiness

When you call my name

You bring me sunshine

In a candle’s flame

You bring me warmth

In the summer’s rain

You bring me smiles

You only call my name
