Staring out the windows of my mind.
Not really sure what I will find.
A thought
An idea
A memory
A dream
The very notion of it makes me scream!
 
Staring out the windows of my life.
Can I take what waits for me in stride?
A love
A loss
A win
A cost
Will I ever be my own boss?

Staring out the windows of a friend
I hope this moment never ends!
Laughter
Kindness
Support
Adventurous
Maybe life isn't so superfluous.
 
Staring out the windows of my mind.
Not really sure what I will find.
A thought
An idea
A memory
A dream
Maybe this isn't as hard as it seems.

<![CDATA[Reflection´╗┐]]>Tue, 22 Dec 2015 22:31:10 GMThttp://www.mikederegowski.com/poems/reflectionI see you
Do you see me?
Do you see the person I want me to be?

My eyes are the wrong colour
My stomachs to big
My arms could be broader
I could use a wig

Why can't I see who I want to see?
Why do you have to show me, me?

I see you
Do you see me?
Don't you see the person I know you to be?

You look like a superstar
You are incredibly smart
Apply yourself to anything and you will go far
And never forget your giant heart

Why can't you see who I see?
Why can't I see me?]]>
<![CDATA[Conversation With Death]]>Wed, 20 May 2015 14:45:55 GMThttp://www.mikederegowski.com/poems/conversation-with-deathWritten By: Mike Deregowski
I am done with you Death
I am done with the pain you cause
I am done with the unfairness of losing
beings I love to you
I am done with having to move on every time
you decide to make yourself known

You hide under your cloak like a coward
You don't look at the agony in a person’s eyes

after you are gone
You lurk in the shadows

waiting for your next opportunity to strike
I am done with you Death

I am done with you Human
I am done with your whining and
blaming me for your sorrow
I am done being cursed whenever my
job needs to be done

I hide my grief under my cloak
I hide my pain from having to pull away
the being that loves you, knowing full
well you will hate me
I wish there was something I could do
to make this process easier
I understand you Death
I understand your job isn't easy
I understand the necessities of your function
I understand, in time, my grief will go away
and that my loved one isn't suffering anymore
I understand you Death

I understand you Human
I understand you form emotional connections
you know have to end, eventually, by my hand
I understand your reluctance to let go of the
one you loved
I understand your need for closure
I understand you Human

<![CDATA[Move On]]>Wed, 20 May 2015 14:45:39 GMThttp://www.mikederegowski.com/poems/move-onWritten By: Mike Deregowski
I saw you
I fell in love
We meet
We move on
We laugh
We have great times
We get to know one another
We move on
You change
You break away
You rip my heart out
You move on
I wonder
I get angry
I accept what happened
I move on
We meet again
We glance at each other
We talk
We move on

<![CDATA[Life Lines]]>Tue, 24 Mar 2015 00:30:33 GMThttp://www.mikederegowski.com/poems/life-lines
Our Life Lines flow like the rivers deep
Ever moving under our feet
We get bumped and battered, in rapids' speeds
And fulfill each other's every needs
Written By: Mike Deregowski
Our Life Lines go on, for this I know
Even through the fork in the road
We make our effort and do our best
But the current's too strong, we fail the test
We now run parallel, forever free
But there is nothing left, for you and me
I will watch you forever, in ocean's deep
And our memories, in my waters, I will always keep
Life Lines come, and Life Lines go
Your line to me, you do not owe
Although our Life Lines now depart
A new one will join you, and a new Life Line will start

<![CDATA[Never Lost...]]>Tue, 03 Feb 2015 21:29:37 GMThttp://www.mikederegowski.com/poems/never-lostWritten By: Mike Deregowski
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
What once was loved
Can never be lost

In times of great sorrow
In times of great pride
I am always with you
I am always by your side

Although you can't see me
I will always be there
When your world gets too lonely
When it is to much to bare

Don't mourn in my absence
Celebrate instead
For the time we had together
Is time we will never forget

When you think of me with sadness
And you shed a few tears
I will stand there beside you
And whisper "I love you" in your ears

Though our time together is done
And we are apart
You will always be in my memory
And hold a place in my heart

What we had lives on in memory
What we had holds true
I will love you forever
My love is never lost for you
