Eds poem - poetry
Ed Gallagher Dec. 11, 1907 - Sept. 5, 2004
This poem was on paper for Ed Gallagher, a good associate and neighbour on the day his wife called me to let me know that he was in the hospice and wasn't predictable to live. I was asked by the ancestors to read this at the gathering after the funeral assistance and copies were given to all his children members.
It is chief to acknowledge that we will miss our loved ones, even though the fact that they have lived to a good age, and chiefly when they die young.
People will say That you lived a good life You had many years With your kids and your wife.
You lived a good life Yes, it is true But that doesn't mean We won't miss you.
The sound of your voice The pace of your step, These are things We won't forget.
Your years on the farm Were not spent in vain You raised quite a crew Through your toil and strain.
Though your sight and your hearing Had begun to dim Your mind was as sharp As a tack or a pin.
Your head was filled With all kinds of facts Sports, people, farming, Living life to the max.
When I came to visit You likely a hug And a austere kiss On your smiling mug.
The light in your eyes When you talked with a friend, Those are the memories That will never end.
You will be missed Of that there's no doubt And we'll think of you often When we're out and about.
Or when we are watching A game on tv And hear them announcing He scores, or arrive at three.
You lived a good life Yes that is true. But that doesn't mean We won't miss you!

Memoirs of a Wastelands Rim [a Poem: now in Spanish and English]
Memoirs of a Wasteland's RimIt still was light when she paused at the wasteland's rim- Over, the rim rest like a sleeping brute, a inexpressive frame Adjacent to the blue where early stars hung like oil lamps Hanging from old beams and shade?the inexpressive frame Her balance jammed the beams, as she had fallen onto it Alone, she watched the forenoon, climbing about her A hobo woman, discernible by life, and angled dreams With development of hurt and molded muscle on her face Her be included impressed alongside the impassive frame, She tried to jump, and lost her balance, lynching like a bird Now sipping the gloom in the ledge and horrified hopes She yielded beforehand the slow build up of sunset Blood dripped, with her dying darkness And a pink moon hurled a flame across The dim clouds, burning all over the sky The besieged sky above her?Crossing the valley's floor her eye absorbed it Rocky images, main points Thrusting herself up bravely from to the ledge The painted break of day blushed over the rim Her brows and nose, face anti the brickwork stone Massive injuries was captivating form, Her figure on the brink so idly crossways the sun It was too great a task-to die alone?she wished now She had not jumped?a thousand feet below, yet to go. Too much for any woman in a lost world Out of the weak wood her mind had peace; She knew soon it would all be over-alas Mute and protesting anti life's uselessness A narrow path lay below her little body Between death and attainment, a careless foot The rocks beneath her weakening, she plunged Plunged to her death, in the statue hands of the valley Thinking of it, as she fell, accepted wisdom with a smiled, Saying, looking up-dead ahead of her echoes: 'Time is short?time is short?time is short!' When they found her, her face was bold of falling.
