Polly Soliloquy 2017




















I will blow down to the sea now
Alone in the wind before the bow

And dream the dream of dreams
For life is never what it seems

Into another dimension I will clime
Review my life's work in real time

Remembering the treasured past
I thought it would forever last

A life cut short is a great loss
Yet I have lived beyond the cost

The waves of time wash o'er the mind
Was I not gentle, loving and kind?

Shall I be remembered for deeds done
Even before I count the total sum?

Will my legacy inspire those alone
All the wonder that I have known?

My spirit will float upon cool air
To reach others with genuine care

Alas, I give thanks a life well lived
Any transgressions, I duly forgive

Ti's time to wander beyond life's shore
And bid adieu to so many I do adore.

MOURNING Soliloquy for Dirk Jan van den Heuvel By Polly Guerin

Dirk and Polly

















What has become of this dear friend of mine?
When last we were together he was fine 

So cold, a silent stranger has come
To claim him before the rising sun

Vague shadow cast memories on the wall
Your journey, a life well lived, I recall

But ensuing days seem strange and cold
I remember you were strong and bold

A maverick man you loved the arts
A faithful friend and a loving heart

How often you there there with care
The world is now silent bleakly bare

A gracious host, it was dinner at eight
Silent now, destiny ruled your fate        

So long a friendship in kind did last
Now shrinking days so fast go past

Life in Maine claimed you as her own
No finer man, forsake, I have ever known

Watching each other in our sad grief
Fond memories in our heart give relief

Come closer, listen and mourn with Chi
Dirk's soul in heaven sets us free!!!

CUDDLED By Polly Guerin















There's more to loving than a kiss
Something special you may have missed

Nothing sets the mood in motion
Than being cuddled with emotion

Two warm arms start the embrace
Brings us in closer face to face

Then warmly draw someone closer
Arms embrace in warm enclosure

Two hearts in one cuddled now
An affectionate hug, I do avow

Clasp us in such affectionate bliss
We snuggle close we cannot resist

Hold fast in some one's arms today
And loneliness simply melts away..
