Poem No. 75: “You will never see Me fall” by Joyce Alcantara

Gedichte, poems

You may see me struggle, 
but you won’t see me fall. 
Regardless if I’m weak or not, 
I’m going to stand tall. 

Everyone says life is easy, 
but truly living it is not.
Times get hard, 
people struggle
and constantly get put on the spot. 

I’m going to wear the biggest smile, 
even though I want to cry. 
I’m going to fight to live,
even though I’m destined to die. 
And even though it’s hard 
and I may struggle through it all,
you may see me struggle…
but you will NEVER see me fall.

Katze versteckt sich

Your space, my space –
Keeping an eye on each other.  (Keeping track of each other)
Patient distance.

Dein Raum, mein Raum –
sich gegenseitig im Auge behalten.
Geduldige Distanz.

Poem No. 36: To My Husband (An meinen Ehemann) by Eliza

Gedichte, poems

To My Husband

When from the world, I shall be tane, 
And from earths necessary paine, 
Then let no blacks be worne for me, 
Not in a Ring my dear by thee. 
But this bright Diamond, let it be 
Worn in remembrance of me. 
And when it sparkles in your eye, 
Think ’tis my shadow passeth by. 
For why, more bright you shall me see, 
Then that or any Gem can bee. 
Dress not the house with sable weed, 
As if there was some dismal deed 
Acted to be when I am gone, 
There is no cause for me to mourn. 
And let no badge of Herald be 
The sign of my Antiquity. 
It was my glory I did spring 
From heavens eternall powerful King: 
To his bright Palace heir am I. 
It is his promise, hee’l not lye. 
By my dear Brother lay me, 
It was a promise made by thee, 
And now I must bid thee adieu, 
For I’me a parting now from you.
