Edwina Reizer Poems
What Is Family?
A family is love That puts itself above Everything else in this world.
A BALLAD FOR HELEN KELLER
How can I know what I can't see? It's never been a part of me. How can I know what I can't hear?
BEAUTY OF LIFE
I wonder as I look around at all the beauty that I've found. I've found it in the smallest places. I've found it in the smiles on faces.
LIAR, LIAR PANTS ON FIRE
Liar, liar we see the fire coming from your mouth each day. The fire that burns the truth as we struggle along our way,
Laugh Out Loud
Have we lost our sense of humor? We must laugh on every day. For without laughter life is dull Like a stage without a play.
Amelia, Amelia where did you go? They’ve searched and searched but still we don’t know. Oh the courage to fly in the air
THE DEATH OF A TREE
When I see a tree cut down whose life was not yet done I look upon it with a frown and then look at the sun.
ODE TO DREAMS
No one can see into my dreams and so they're mine alone. I travel places and meet old friends and some I've never known.
Some drink to take away pain. Some eat and try to forget. Some think and try to just stay sane. Some cry big tears so wet.
The frightened ballerina, standing on her toes stood behind the curtain in a dainty pose.
BALLAD OF MARTIN LUTHER KING
Born with a legacy he had to fulfill his life was constantly marching uphill. Until he could reach the mountain top, he realized this was something he never could stop.
JUST THE TWO OF US
Just the two of us making memories all our own, Just the two of us have memories that have grown
Those Special Moments
If only we could keep those moments from slippin' away, grab hold of them and cherish them and try to make them stay.
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
When the lion roars and makes himself heard all in the jungle shall listen As he stalks his prey from hunger he feels on his face his eyes do glisten.
A MIXED BREED
I have the blood of a white man,
My papa's blood that is.
I have the blood of a black woman,
My mama's blood that is.
And so my blood is a mixture
Of blood that's hers and his.
It courses through my veins each day
With its color imbed.
