There is a time to live and a time to die I’m with the living now But I was dead I cannot deny Wallowing in my own pity Having a party by myself Putting all of you up on a shelf. Tears have been aplenty, And many questions why Do I just give up and in? Do I lay down and die?
I’ve been with the living dead Walking a hollow path A downhill climb that Is coming from the lack Of zeal for life as it is.
Afraid to admit I have many failures And amends I need to forgive Will you remember my name At the game we play of this life? Or was my life in strife?
I say then remember me through my poetry! She breathes life back into my soul Keep me close now don’t let me go. Down that dark road alone.
I saw the glowing white angels fly by me today They were all smiling saying today is not your day. You will write poetry another day! Seek your solace in your words Breathe life back into your soul. Stop and feel and think and see It’s all your reality!!!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Eva Marie Ann Cagley
I was born and raised in Waterloo Iowa, where I spent most of my time working with teenagers
in a group home and at a Juvenile Detention Center as a counselor. Working with teenagers
gave me great joy, having had none of my own… I come from a large family of nine children
having six brothers and two sisters. I have always had a love for poetry. It has always been a
dream of mine to publish a book of my own poems. My first interest in poetry was when I was in
Sixth grade English class and we were studying Robert Frost. I have always had a passion for
poetry and believe it is a gift from God…It gives me great pleasure to share my poetry with
others. There's little else to say about me as my poetry reflects whom I am. My beliefs,
perspectives, trials and tribulations, hopes and despair, dreams of all my lives’ journeys…
Given with love I leave you now with a place Where Poets Dream!
