"First to Last Breath" by Isidro Zapata

The very first breath you take
of your life
  you are not self aware
that you are alive
as you grow
you start to understand
how frail you really are
and that one
day you will
  take your last breath
so, we fear
Death
  No one has ever defeated
Death
   Only the son of god
   has and is sitting
     At the right hand of our father
  proclaiming we are his beloved
so that
we can spend the
rest of time with our beloved
father
who has perpared a place for us
so now enter in to
the joy of our lord

"Life's Moments, Where Their Is No Need for Words" by Isidro Zapata

Their are moments
In Life
Where their is
No need for
Words
Only a simple
innocent Embrace
Is, all it takes to
Give hope to your loved one
That you will give them

Warmth
(When, the world had turned their back on them)

Tenderness and loving
(After they been hurt too many times to count)

Caring
for their well being
(To replace all those lonely nights when it seemed like
The world had forgotten them)

No words need to be spoken
you, are here to give them
Unconditional
Love
You will always be there for them
When they need you the most
to wipe every
Tear from their eye
and replace
The painful memories
With joy and happiness
Just a simple
Innocent embrace
Speaks, louder
Then any words
only the sound of
Love
Can be heard
From your embrace
these moments
in life are
here for you to
Hold unto
when life becomes much to dark
Jesus is here
To embrace you and
Never let you go
to bring you warmth from
this cold world
we live in
to give you the strength
To continue living
On the right path
That leads to
Everlasting life

"this other one is for my friend, who passed away" by Isidro Zapata

I really, do not know where
To beginI feel so lost and unable
To understand
All of life’s hurts and pains
the circle of life and death
As we mourn the lost
Of a good friend, husband, brother, and father
Around the other side or just four hours away
A happy couple is celebrating the
Birth of a baby boy or girl
To the family:
I truly wish I could have done more
So I hope you can forgive me
I did not know that he was
Going down the road of despair
Throughout my life I have been to many of these
Solemn occasions
lost a good friend or a family member
Which makes me feel even more alone in this
Upside world that we live in
I know how it feels the pain and feeling
Like you are no good to anyone because
the lost of our physical ability is not what it use to be
I wonder at times where did that other me
Has gone to and I hope that someday he comes back home
he has been gone for way to long
So come back home my friend
You will continue to live on forever
Not just in the next life but in this life
When you showed your children lessons to live by
You showed them love and tenderness to your whole family
You were in a lot of pain, I know that path
it is a path of wrath and set on replay because it keeps on repeating
I really respected you in how you handle this path
You gave me hope that I could have a normal ife!!
Just want to tell you thank you, like so many of us
You got lost and unable to find your own way out
as we mourn you leaving this world
There is a celebration in the next world
Because you are finally home
We will all miss you some days will be harder for your family
Because you are no longer their
so just whisper to them that
You truly love them and U care for them
For those who are left behind
I know it is really hard
And feelings like you are all alone Is just to common
In a flash our Savior Can easily transform your heart
because our father does it want you to be in pain
God wants
To guide you and show you the path
To take
so keep up the faith
I know some day you will be reunited
With your loved ones

"Playing this Game" by Isidro Zapata

As we sit across from each other the room is filled with
Lies that we
Keep telling each other
Y do we keep
playing this
Game when we
Both know that
I have already
Lost U
Is it because
Neither of us
is brave
Enough to take
That last step
and our lives
Will never be the
Same again
I remember that very day
when I look into your
eye's
and all I could
see was
a stranger
Looking back at me
When U Speak
I go deaf
& your love
turn to hate
I just do not know
where to turn
then you spoke
to the both of us
so we
Look up and
let you restore
our love for one another
Your cold heart starts to melt
my ear opens up
now we are
on a new path
laid before us in the book
we are so thankful that
the both of us
got a second chance
due to the
one from above
who help us remember
the taste of our love
so thank you
Lord for your saving grace
