Dear Diary,

Once again I inform you, my sleepless nights continue
when slowly the dawn blankets the room I awake with you,
I feel the moisture dripping through the walls onto the cypress floor,
I know that there are ghosts, one... two... possibly more.

I sometimes see this little girl who stands near in the hall,
her eyes affixed on mine so young, so dead, so small.
And still there is another with eyes once filled with love
who searches below the cypress and into the attic above

He calls out continually though never to a given name
with outstretched arms whispering, " I am the one you blame"
Please Diary tell me, you'll help to stave my fear
as the ghosts go on their rounds, I need to keep you near..

I must go..
.... I hear them....
.......... will write tomorrow....

Move Toward the Dawning Light
When the eyes are drained of Love
And the dawn no longer blankets the room
It's time to move on...
To the Light of another dawning

Jet's Diary
There's no such thing as ghost,
all the sane folk tell you so.
But I think they'd be as mad as us
if they trod where we must go.

Some living help to guide the dead
to where they can be free.
And many who have gone before
can help the living see.

But none so blind, or so they say
as those that will not see.
Dear Diary, do my records show
profound insanity?

Take from Jet's verse what err' you will,
remain with sightless eyes.
Ignore the cries of help from those
your mind says are 'just lies'.
