A Poem by a Member
Never ever will I watch the sea again
The waves rushing and crashing
Against the rocks
To be pulled back again by the restless tide.
Never ever will I see the mountains again
Never ever will I follow the rugged road
Never ever will I hear the shrill cry of a golden eagle again
Only in memory will I catch the glimpse
Of a sudden smile on that dear loved face.
Or feel the touch of a warm embrace
Of hands that soothed and caressed.
Only in memory can I see it all again
