A Poem in Remembrance of Paul Goldstein 2010 by Sue

A Poem in Remembrance of Paul Goldstein 2010

by Sue

A Penny Found on the Ground dated 1975
The year I met you on the phone,
When, ‘MODENT’ was new and alive.

I Found an Invoice, in a Jar of Dreams You sent to me in Maine
It says to write down all my Dreams
And keep them in my Heart,

I’ll keep it there in the Jar,
Or, perhaps I’ll put it in a frame
It matters not what I do
For without you life has not been the same

The recipe for Rice Salad
Remains in lettered Red
Because that was the only pen
I had as I copied what you said

A Penny found on the Ground dated 2007
The year you left the Earth for Heaven
To Join the Songs of Angels

A Poem of Dreams for Paul Goldstein on this his 53rd Birthday June 2011, by Sue

I dreamed a dream of long ago
Of after High School days and schemes
Of Crimson Roses, and Candle Light
Of Marshmallows freshly toasted

I dreamed of Birthday Cakes
For Relatives or Friends
Of magic afternoon delights
Eating Ice Cream, Vanilla white

Soft Velvety from Dairy Queen
Like the Love you shared with all
I wish you a Blessed Birthday
My friend, our one and only Paul

Now to sleep and dream again
And wake up to tomorrow
With trust and faith and
The Good Cheer you gave

As you said good bye with
Your eyebrows raised
In one final breath
Heaven holds you in it's arms

I shall never forget.

Be Well, my friend, and carry on the wings of Angels. Sing songs to Stephanie and Alice so they can hear them in the wind. I know I shall see you again someday, but for now God has borrowed you from us, until we meet again.

Love, Sue
