Lingering (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)


A shadow of your soul
Does so constantly remain
Enveloping me whole
Within my empty domain

I've dusted off the past
Scrubbed away the injuries
But never does it last
And still bide your courtesies

I covet what lingers
Of your sweetest suggestion
The tips of your fingers
That has left your impression

I know this too shall fade
And your traces left behind
Will grow a lighter shade
Become dimmer in my mind

But never will you die
Since always will I hold you
As my dearest ally
And I hope you'll know it's true

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
