A Sad Day

Post  RichieO on Thu Sep 29 2011, 13:54

I lay upon this earth today,
Beside a brook this day.
The water so crisp and clear this time of year.
I gaze aloft, to a sky so blue, so clear.
A silence surrounds me, I hear no sound.
I know but a moment sooner a battle did rage.
My eyes do mist, my Mother I cry, no sound doth come, my lips do quiver.
I gaze again into the Brook, It's clear, not now, it's turned to red.
My life has turned it red.
I lay here in silence, on battlefield so quite...
With my life's Blood, slowly ebbing away.
A maker I shall meet upon this very Day.
How Sad, how Sad, upon this very Sad Day...

A Sad Day

Post  RichieO on Thu Sep 29 2011, 14:40

Hi Jinetty,
Thank you for your welcome and comments. I would like to send a photo but at the moment I am looking to see how to attach them.
I have put another of my work on the site and I am about to put another. However, the writings are on my Blackberry so I need to figure out how to get them across.
I have looked on the site and found some really good work. You all seem to be having a lot of fun and enjoyment in your writings. I am sure I will find the contentment and hope you'll all enjoy them has enjoy writng them.
Richie.

I lay upon this earth today,
Beside a brook this day.
The water so crisp and clear
this time of year.
I gaze aloft, to a sky
so blue, so clear.

A silence surrounds me,
I hear no sound.
I know but a moment sooner
a battle did rage.

My eyes do mist,
my Mother I cry,
no sound doth come,
my lips do quiver.

I gaze again into the Brook,
It's clear, not now,
it's turned to red.
My life has turned it red.

I lay here in silence,
on battlefield so quite...
With my life's Blood,
slowly ebbing away.

A maker I shall meet
upon this very Day.
How Sad, how Sad,
upon this very Sad Day...
