My Memories – A Poem by James Tucci

It’s dark out

The sun has set over Biscayne Bay

I am by myself

With only a view of darkened waters

But I am not alone

I have my memories

Of my life

And the lives of others

The lives of my family

And those I have loved

Those memories are my companions

And my friends

They are my support and solace

I am not alone

The meadow, A poem by James Tucci

The meadow

I walked down the road

Up ahead was a fence

When I saw that fence it made me wonder

What lay behind it

It was a low fence

I reached it and lifted my legs over it

Beyond it was a meadow

With wild yellow and pale red flowers

Popping out of the tall grass that swayed in the breeze

The meadow had some standing water

So I stopped and gazed out

To where the meadow crossed into the sky

At that moment I knew that life was endless

I would never know all the paths or all the answers

But I knew I was glad to have climbed over that fence

The Russian Love

The Russian Love.

 

The Russian Love

I need you

More than life itself

For without you

There is no life

You are the moon the sun and the stars

The flowers the birds the trees

It is dark without you

There can be no joy

All that sees me through

Is knowing that you are out there

Somewhere in this world

Seven hours to the east of me

In some unknown place

But knowing that you are alive and on our little planet

Gives me the strength

To awaken to the next day

And face the world

Never certain that before my time in this mystic land comes to an end

That I will ever see you again

 

To do Good for One Another

To do Good for One Another.

 

The Reality of Life

It is not easy to navigate the currents of our lives

We are born with an appearance and a nature

Both infused with the essence of life

This is the point at which we start the journey

From there we use our innate power and energy

To make the decisions, the causes, the choices

Which influence us and those around us

Eventually the effects of our energies are realized

For the better or the worse.

We can only hope that along the way

We have been true to our hearts and souls and inner beings

And that the actions we have taken make us proud

Proud to be alive

Proud to be doing something for the world and those around us.

Only time will tell how the fruits of our actions are borne out

And only time will tell whether the marks we leave upon this world

Are those which will further mankind in its endeavor

To finally and fully realize for all eternity

That we come from the one to form the one

Making it our lifetime mission to do good for one another

James Tucci
