First Come the Goodbyes

by Donald Standeford  
2/24/2013 / Poetry

Soon our halleluiahs will roll like thunder;
Gladly we will walk, no troubles in our talk;
Now were stuck, just hushes and goodbyes,
Too soon for eternity; on it we knock;

Place of opportunity, land of little lies;
Dreams of an Earth rapture into Heaven,
Just a cupped peach on Joshuas tree;
Its branch Gods hand, curved, no thorn,

No briars or tares but the boasting little horn
Who hisses in hate at whats on his plate;

Alone in this world is truly when I knew
How I miss you; down the road, soon to come
Are so many hellos, but first comes goodbye;
I wait for you as the stars outwait the sun;

I miss you as a spinster her youthful hopes,
Or as the moon its ocean, continents away.

Don V Standeford
