Freak Accident Prone
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a diligent safety engineer, modifying the hazardous work practices,
Like the thrilling festive celebrations, when you open up pretty packages!

I took my work very seriously, and my motto had long been safety first,
Like waiting all the livelong day, for gone currant sun's huge color burst.

My word was always trusted, for people valued my professional opinion,
As pearlescent moon values jet darkness, when gazing on her dominion.

I made sure workers abided by safety rules, and it gave me satisfaction,

Seven Hearts
by Khayelihle Bongiswa Gamedze

The first one is for laughter
And infinite romance.
For smiling and for hugging
For giving me a chance.

The second is for hope;
And longing for tomorrow.
She opens up this heart
Whenever we face sorrow.

Merry Christmas, Mom - Part VI
by Randy Johnson

The Christmas of 2012 was the last Christmas that you celebrated on Earth.
You were a kind and loving mother for 41 and a half years after my birth.
When March the 6th arrived, you wouldn't have a tomorrow.
It took two years for me to get over the pain and sorrow.
I can't spend anymore Christmases with you, now I spend my Christmases alone.
You were a terrific woman and the best person who I've ever known.
March of 2013 was the worst month and year that I've ever experienced.
When you passed away, it hurt me terribly and I've missed you ever since.
But I feel much better now, time does heal a man's wounds.
Merry Christmas Mom, I'm sorry that you died too soon.

Bill Maynard (1928-2018)
by Randy Johnson

A British actor entertained people as Selwyn Froggitt and The Gaffer.
During his 89 years of life, Bill Maynard gave millions the gift of laughter.
He starred in a few episodes of both 'Worzel Gummidge' and 'Heartneat'.
He starred once in both 'The Ugliest Girl In Town' and 'Coronation Street'.

When he died, it was hard for all of his fans to get a grip.
He died in a hospital not long after falling and breaking his hip.
It was twelve months ago when he passed away.
Sadly, we lost a talented actor one year ago today.

Death Of a Relative
by Randy Johnson

My papaw died twenty-five years ago today.
It's been a quarter of a century since he passed away.
When he took a new medication, he became sick.
When Papaw took it, he turned out to be allergic.
If it hadn't been for Papaw, I wouldn't exist.
He died a long time ago and he's still missed.

(Dedicated to Burley Johnson who died on August 3, 1994.)

A title never to be crowned, other than you
by Sahil Sawant

Let's not title it, let's not label it,
Let's break the ice, and enable it,
It's what my heart said, when I walked through clouds,
When my beats whispered, they heard it loud,
I'm back, to reign every fairy, with my silly words,
To vanish every doom, killing the nasty birds,
It's time for you, to wake up, and crawl, a quite long,
Don't wait for anyone, who may walk along,
You are a dawn, of yourself, know it, before they do,
As they are wishing to perish you, before you do,

Happy Birthday, Mom - Part VII
by Randy Johnson

The people who knew you, know that I was very fortunate to be your son.
If you hadn't passed away, today you would've become seventy-one.
Another year has passed and another birthday has come around.
Seven years ago, you were alive and well but now you're buried in the ground.

When my brother didn't buy you a birthday cake in 2012, I bought you one.
It was both a privilege and an honor to buy you a cake and to be your son.
When you died in 2013, I damn nearly fell apart.
I had to lick my wounds and nurse a broken heart.
