What Ifs

by Linda Lee Lyberg

While the sun shines much too harsh today 
As I wallow alone in this secluded room
The dying rose holds luscious perfume at bay 
For there’s to be no joy in this present gloom


As I wallow alone in this secluded room 
I ponder ‘what ifs’ had I not ran, but stayed
For there’s to be no joy in this present gloom
Did your fate have its way in my life charade?


I ponder ‘what ifs’ had I not ran, but stayed
How different would my scarred life now be?
Did your fate have its way in my life charade
Or by the hand of God, was my soul set free?


How different would my scarred life now be
if the dying rose held luscious perfume at bay
By the hand of God my soul was set free
and still the sun shines much too harsh today

Crushed

by Linda Lee Lyberg

“Just beyond the bruised lips of consciousness.”

from Birds Again

~ Jim Harrison

The stars once bright in eyes now faded and gray
viewing the world through tangled trees
a purple haze of permanent contusions,
amid barren thoughts of rotting leaves
the result of love damaged beyond reason.

Days of Youth

by Linda Lee Lyberg

A mockingbird crooned his melody
as I sat under a blooming Lilac tree
I closed my eyes and soon drifted away
lulled by soft buzzing of the honeybees.

Fraught with cold moonlight

Mourning its soul’s fated plight.

Across his threadbare sleeve

In blurred moments of rending grief.

The Reaper

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Every moment we lose someone
We learn the meaning of sympathy
How grief will hurt and leave us undone
But in it’s place grows sweet empathy.

Even if they appear to be perfection
In truth, all people and souls are flawed.
