In Pursuit

This was written on the basis of an inspirational meeting.
The words will tell the tale!
A normal day,
In a normal store,
And with my wife,
As was before,
With hearing aids,
I was a sight,
And she pursued,
In her delight,
With signing speech,
She read my lips,
With news of help,
She did equip,
To tell me where,
They teach my hands,
To share my words,
And thoughts which stand,
She had to run,
Just to catch me,
If there was chance,
To set me free,
With resource help,
To give a start,
What she did share,
Was her own heart,
So then I thought,
What would life be,
If we all tried,
Like her to be?
Pursuing chance,
To do some right,
And add our love,
To light the night.

The Prince of Hearts - For Robin Williams

I do not know what to say,
When I sit down to write.
Yet I know the words will come,
As I am called forth to speak.
Was it like that with you,
When you were with us,
Upon the stage?
The words seemed to come,
When you looked into our hearts.
All the things of the world,
Would come into your mind,
You would read what to say,
Through our eyes from the stage.
You would touch us in strength,
And we could not help but laugh.
You would touch us in life,
With your innocent smile.
Yet your eyes would tell me,
Much more than words would say.
As theater became the stage,
To reach us in new ways.
Bringing us magical joy,
As Genie of the lamp.
Bringing hope beyond words,
In the Awakening of souls.
Bringing healing to pain,
Portraying Patch in his life.
As you became Peter Pan,
We became your children.
Yet I do not understand,
How the door closed behind you.
Yet you did not understand,
The pain that took you away.
Yet I will always understand,
The truth life conveys,
Because you sought our hearts,
Within them you always stay.
