Reflections: Flamborough

Flamborough is the first poem in the second part of Reflections. Of Places.

Flamborough was a places very special to me, especially during my childhood years. It was in this small seaside town among the high cliffs and the caves I used to explore where I found peace and escape from the horrors of my life. Even during my 20 year stay over in America, Flamborough called out to me in my thoughts and dreams which inspired the poem. More can be learned about my explorations and adventures in Flamborough in my first memoir: Miedo: Living Beyond Childhood Fear.

Flamborough

You are 

My mother

You are 

My friend

I am in 

Your debt

Until 

The very end

You nursed 

My childhood

Calmed away 

Fears

I have not 

Forgotten you

Though-out the Years

The wind it lulled me

With seagull cries

The sea it called to me

With echoing skies

 Never once 

Did you

Ever 

Let me down

I always felt 

Safe

Your love 

All around

– I went 

Away

We were 

Worlds 

Apart

You called out to me

You touched 

My Heart

Through all 

The times

I felt lonely 

Felt blue

My mind 

My heart

Reached out 

To you

The wind it lulled me

With seagull cries

The sea it called to me

With echoing skies

 Never once 

Did you

Ever 

Let me down

Again I felt 

Safe

Felt

Your love 

All around

Now

I’m returned

May you 

Have your way

At the very 

End

On that 

Final Day

May my ashes 

Be cast

From your cliffs 

Aright

Forevermore

May we 

Be

Reunite

The wind

She lulls me

With seagulls cries

The sea 

She calls me

With echoing skies

I know 

You

Shall never 

Let me go

We shall 

Be 

As one

Forevermore
