My Brother Has Cancer

My brother has cancer
He’s four years older than me
He’s all that I have left
Of my original family

Medicine freaks him out
So in the hospital he goes
He’s also got dementia
How long he has, know one knows

So I’ve been thinkin’ quite a lot
About our childhood together
It was just he and I
And our dad and our mother

We played games constantly
Got in trouble when we’d fight
But that was a game as well
Our young world seemed so bright

Mom was sick a lot it seemed
I learned to cook quite young
I remember when my brother
Wouldn’t eat the gravy I spun

“I can’t eat this” he would say
“It’s got lots of lumps in there”
But now it makes me smile
So many memories we share.

But his mind is going quickly
I have to visit while it lasts
Chat about the happy times
Of our wonderful childhood past!

Listen to their laughter
Listen to them sing
Watch them on the roundabout
Watch them on the swings
See them playing football
See them beam and glow
Innocence of childhood
Why does it not show…
Us … as we get older
How sweet life could be
If … just now and then
We could look and see …
The child … still deep within us
Gentle simplicity
That years and years obliterate
As we become less free
So caught up in the world
It’s complications too…
Wouldn’t it be nicer
If our childhood lasted through….
All our life upon this earth
It’s gentle innocence
Making mankind kinder………
And maybe have more sense…..
Philip Vincent Sanders

To the River Otter

Dear native Brook! wild Streamlet of the West!
How many various-fated years have past,
What happy and what mournful hours, since last
I skimm'd the smooth thin stone along thy breast,
Numbering its light leaps! yet so deep imprest
Sink the sweet scenes of childhood, that mine eyes
I never shut amid the sunny ray,
But straight with all their tints thy waters rise,
Thy crossing plank, thy marge with willows grey,
And bedded sand that vein'd with various dyes
Gleam'd through thy bright transparence! On my way,
Visions of Childhood! oft have ye beguil'd
Lone manhood's cares, yet waking fondest sighs:
Ah! that once more I were a careless Child!
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

You Are The Dawn

How the dawn brings the light
How the light fill the whole heart
The most sought after dream
From childhood to youthful charm
Keep haunting the chambers dark
Leaving the blind, without a spark.

The bright sunrays pierce all corners
The warm moon light delight all viewers
But the wrecked childhood days
Weaken the living spirit, day after day
The fast approaching phase of youth
Still finds no one to shower some warmth.

In the pre-destined darkness, left to fate
No hand is offered as help, though aghast
Love is the dire need in this crisis hour
Showering faith on us is the only savior
Hold our hand to share feelings for a day
Who’s there except you to show us a way.

Yes, you are the dawn to bring the light
Yes, you are the light to fill the dark hearts.
Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana
