While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

Visit me in a dream

Come and visit me in a dream,

And tell me how you are,

Are you floating on a cloud?

Have you found the brightest star?

 

I know you're with us somewhere,

Even though you can't be seen,

Painting the bluest sky,

Or among the grass so green.

 

As I'm wandering through the park,

Looking up at the trees,

Daydreaming of the joy you brought,

Will you visit me please?

 

Just send me a little sign,

White feathers on the breeze,

To let me know you're happy, free

And put my mind at ease.

 

Or ask a passing stranger,

With twinkling brown eyes,

A cheeky smile, and baldy head,

To nod as he passes by.

 

Or maybe play a special song,

Loud, on my radio,

That could have been written just for you,

About all the love we've known.

 

Come visit me in a dream,

And tell me how you are,

I know you're there, a floating cloud,

And one of the brightest stars.

HONOURABLE NATTY DREAD

FROM OUT OF THIS EARTH, IN EVERY GENERATION

SO DON'T YOU HAVE NO FEAR, YOU HAVE DONE YOUR SHARE, YOU ARE THE HONOURABLE
NATTY DREAD.

YOU BROUGHT US OUT FROM IGNORANCE,
AND FOR THIS WE WILL THANK YOU HONESTLY.
ALTHOUGH WE KNOW THAT IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT MANY WOULD BE

ROBERT NESTA MARLEY, HE LIVED HIS LIFE FOR WE.
AND NOW WE HAVE GROWN, WE ARE THE SEEDS HE HAS SHOW, TILLED BY HIS IMPERIAL
MAGESTY. 
OH BROTHER BOB YOU WERE ONE.

NOW IN THE PHYSICAL YOU HAVWE GONE, BUT IN THE SPIRIT YOU WILL CARRY ON,
THE WORKS OF MARCUS GARVEY.(CHORUS)

NOW BOB ARISE,
OPEN THY EYES.
BECAUSE WE WANT YOU TO KNOW, I 'n' I HAVE DISCOVERED YOUR FOE,
TRAMPLED BENEATH THY FEET.

SO IF YOUR TRODDING IN A STREET, 
OR IN A HIGH MOUNTAIN.
DON'T YOU HAVE NO SHAME, 
REGGAE MUSIC HAS BROUGHT YOU FAME, 
YOU ARE THE HONOURABLE NATTY DREAD.

The Vow

As I stand before you today my love
I vow this vow to you and to God above
I vow to love you from this day on,
For this is the sunrise of our new dawn
My Soul is honored
My heart humbled and thankful to thee
For this is the beginning of you and me
I vow to you, you shall never feel the rain
For my love will be your shelter that will always sustain
I vow to you as the blood flows through my veins
Your love flows within my veins just the same
I vow to you; you shall never be lonely
For my love will be in your heart and your soul only
I vow to you if you shed a tear
My love will gently hold you oh so very near
I vow to you when you laugh, I laugh
I vow to you when you cry I shall cry
I vow to you when you breathe, I shall breathe
I vow to you when your heart so shall mine beat
I vow to you your family shall be mine
I vow to you my family shall be yours
I vow to you, you are my life, my existence my love all I need to survive
I vow to you I shall die fulfilling your happiness
My heart bows with humility and my soul is filled with honor
From this moment on I shall treasure you and you only
I vow to you neither of us shall ever again be lonely
I vow you this through the end of time

This poem is my own recovery from Valium O Little White Tablet

‘0 LITTLE WHITE TABLET’

O little white tablet, how I hate you,
I was only 21 years old, when introduced to you.
You looked so innocent, so white, so pure.
I was told you were the answer to everything,
(The cure)
No-one told me, when they introduced me to 
the rest of your family, the yellow and the blue.
The blue being five times stronger than you.
No-one told me of the dangers you held within.
Of all the pain I would have to go through, all the suffering.
No-one told me. YOU would rob me, of eighteen 
years of my life.
That I would be unable to function properly,
as a Mother and Wife.
No-one told me, I would get addicted to you.
Of all the pain and suffering, I would
have to go through.
To get you out of my system, alone took two years. 
Two more years of heartbreak, many, many tears.
Then to find out, I had Agoraphobia.
Several more years, destroyed by fear.
Which a lot of people, say is caused by you.
Not being able to go out, far or near.
Hurting all the ones, I loved so dear.
O little white tablet, how I hate you.
But in the end I was the winner Not you.

This poem refers to prescribed drugs

A living hell My Agoraphobia

My Agoraphobia.
In 1983 you came back  into my life.
Bringing me nothing, but trouble and strife.
You kept me a prisoner in my own home.
When all I longed for, Was to go out alone.
You caused me pain, you made cry,
I felt so ill, I thought I would die.
From doctor, to doctor, from pillar to post.
Where o where, is the cure I wanted the most?
Where exactly does the answer lie?
Eventually I found it, in a doctor called Di.
She gave me the will to carry on and fight.
I fought so hard, with all of  my might.
The shops in the village seemed so very far away.
If only I could go out, just for one single day.
I tried and tried, the tears, the pain,
It was a battle lose or gain,
I gave it everything, yes everything I had.
It wasn’t easy, in fact, it was very bad.
In 1990, after 7 long years,
A lot of heartache, many, many tears,
I was starting to win the battle of getting out the door,
With each day, I was doing more and more,
But there was still so many things that I couldn’t do alone.
Still so many jobs, that had to be done on the phone.
I could now walk to the shops, there and back,
 get the groceries, take them home, and unpack,
But I still couldn’t get a bus into town on my own,
only if I had someone to go with, borrowed, on loan.
It took several more years, of heartbreak and pain,
Before I could finally travel alone again.
May 2nd  2000, I jumped on a bus and popped into town,
It was just like my world had been turned upside down.
HERE WAS I FREE AT LAST,
Finally free to forget the past.
So I decided to do something I had never done before. 
I started at college part time, each day I couldn’t wait to get out of the door,
To catch my bus, to feel like I had finally rejoined the human race.
Living life at a hectic pace.
Going to college at the age of 53,
Really did do wanders for me.
The computer course was harder than I thought it would be, 
but others in the class helped me.
Our tutor was really nice,
Always ready with good advice.
Now I really feel I have turned my life completely around,
With this new freedom I have found.
With a lot of help, from my husband and son,
The battle is over, finally won.
So its goodbye agoraphobia you belong in the past,
Never again will you get me in your grasp.

This is a true poem of my own battle with Agoraphobia, That robbed me of a lot of my life,

My Miracle, this is a true poem



I looked at the clock, My life was slowly ebbing away.
I didn’t think I would reach 40, What a high price to pay.
I was coming off tranquillisers 15 a day prescribed by my then  G P,
But the withdrawal symptoms were so horrendous I could hardly see.
I was constantly being sick night and day,
All I could do was to sit and  pray this nightmare would go away.
I couldn’t walk properly, My balance had completely gone,
I couldn’t pay privately, as money I had none.
I also had Agoraphobia, so I couldn’t even go out of  the door,
This wasn’t a life worth living any more.
All I was left with, was to say a prayer,
To ask for a miracle. Lay my soul bare.
A week or so later, a letter in my hand,
An appointment with a new doctor, I could hardly stand.
Over the next year a miracle unfolded, bit by bit.
I didn’t even have to walk with my stick.
I started to go out a bit more each day,
Various obstacles got in my way.
But I was determined, I was not going back,
I mapped out a plan to keep myself on track.
I did it, I conquered my Agoraphobia, and  got off the pills.
I even went to college for the first time to learn new skills.
I went on Radio, Television, Newspapers and Magazines all covered my story.
The miracle I prayed for had happened, mine was now the glory.

THANKYOU NHS for my Life

Thankyou 

How do you thank someone for giving you twenty-five  years of extra life

Yes twenty-five years extra, Of  being a Mother, Nanny and Wife.

How do you thank someone for being there for you
.
When you were so ill, you didn’t know what to do.

You thank them by, now being the person you want to be
.
And showing the world on live TV.

You thank them by doing all the things you never got the chance to do before.

When you couldn’t even venture out the door.

You thank them by living your life  in the fast lane again
. 
Now you are free of the nightmare, free of  the pain.

You thank them by shopping at a packed Sheffield Meadowhall
.
A couple of weeks before Christmas, you are having a ball
.
You thank them by going to see your fav’ourite singer Cliff
.
You sit there with 12,000 people just to do this.

You thank them by running a helpline for others

meeting fantastic people along the way
.
You thank them by living your life day by day
.
You thank them by just being you,

You thank them in everything that  you do.

Give A Little Obama Love




           *********

Note: Giving good orderly direction.... " Give A little Obama Love "



To-day is a New Day
Time  for people to Pray
If their were No Unity
Where would we be to-day?
      ------
Why is it..
That all of 'GOD' People
       Are so...!
War Torn Today..
With nothing going on
With nothing to speak of..
So little to say!
      ------
So, looking back on Reflection
In a more Democratic Way
Let's give the Future back
     To the Children
             - And - 
Let Jesus lead the way
        --------
So, Why not give them Love
Show them another way
Remember that Obama Care
Is a Health Care which is
           Oh! so very rare..
          --------
It could really save the Day?
Do you know a better way?
        --------
It is meant for people with
         No Insurance... 
Not for those...
Who just don't care!
          ------
For it is just an annoyance
Who really need Insurance?
          ------
So, if you have Insurance
And that is all that really
       Matter to you...
Remember that their are
Men, Women and Children
Who needs' a plan too...?
For the Obama Plan is high
           In Demand
And Gods' People are too...


                    GF

Note: Remember that if you need a Health Plan
          then we need one too...

The Eye

The eye,a sign the 
unwise can't comprehend
  Forged from the world's 
origin,an 
illumination in darkened 
minds,for the 
enlightened ones like 
Leonardo da Vinci,Isaac 
Newton,John Milton....etc.
   The eye is a tree 
with many branches like 
Priory of Scion,Knight 
templars,I.O.G.T,United 
Nations,Masonic 
Lodge,Music industry, 
Politics,global economy, 
etc 
stretching beyond 
human imaginations-felt 
in all corners of earth.
  The world is clothed 
through wisdom from 
above.
   The eye,all seeing 
sign,an invincible 
emblem of power and 
riches to the lion hearted 
and loyal souls.
A seat of influence and 
fame.
  Creating the social order 
through men of power....
  Some see it as a 
curse,others a blessing.
  I feel it,the great eye is 
everywhere watching 
you!

US in JesUS

Before we were thought of or time had started, 
God put US in His Son’s name.. 
 
And each time we pray, you'll see its true, 
You can't spell Jesus without including US.  
Were a pretty big part of His wonderful name, 
For US, He was born; 
 
And His great love for US is the reason He died. 
Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand 
He rose from the dead, with US in His plan? 
 
The stones split away, the gold trumpet blew, egospelexpress
And His resurrection was for US.  
 
As JesUS left the earth with His wonderful ascension, 
When He felt there was one thing He just had to mention. 
 
"Go into the world and tell them it's true 
that I love them all - Just like I love you." 
 
So many people are Christian brothers and sisters, 
Don't all the others have a right to know JesUS too? 
 
It all depends on what we do, 
He'd like them all to know, 
But it all starts with US.

Return Of Your King

Reflections of imperfections have shown me a way that I can move mountains through my power of faith even though I can't see him I know he is real through the power of prayer and a Love that I feel It's growing inside me like a flower in bloom shall I reveal my powers or is it too soon I am reading the signs through my darkness I find a reason for belief in the light of mankind that I know shall overcome the greatest of odds the Love I seek amazes me especially through the flaws because now I am inspired through the hero's that bring my throne through the darkness on which I return on as your King.

Don't Trust Your Eye's

Don't Trust Your Eye's



Don't trust me.

With every word I believe in you.

How many times have I hurt you?

How many times did you save me?

Your eye's shouldn't trust everything they see.

With my heart,those are my eye's.

Not if it clouded with lies.

I can feel you,your no lie.

Why do you insistent ?

For you will disappear if I don't keep you close.

Aren't you not selfish,why do you trust this image?

I don't trust my heart to you,I trust my well being.You've never let me fall to fair where you couldn't reach me before.

How do you know I won't betray you in the end,for I am a spawn of the devil.

For you was once an angel with a heart.

What do you now believe?

The mouth.It curses those without any knowledge of the truth that lies deep inside.

So where does my truth lie?

In a kiss.That comes from your heart.

Your not afraid you'll lose everything in the end?

I'm afraid of what can touch me but hasn't.

How can you be so open when I stand between you and death.Is there not a life you wish to live?

You as to many question.Your not allowed to ask with your mouth which only know's lies.

Then where should I ask from?

Look into my eye's.
Look into my soul.
Watch and don't be afraid.

You how can you?

Life is completed when a person is in sher sync with themselves.

What I a fool?...Is that what I'm taken for?

No in truth your eye are shown lies so you heart is clouded and your soul is being torn.

Is there no way to escape this.Mistress of Truth and of lies?

There is but yourself can only fix.

As I bow I pledge myself to thee as I once did all those years ago.

And I will take you like I did all those year ago.

Let see eye to eye and never trust what we see.

For it only clouded are heart.

Twist are minds.

And tears are souls.

Look not with your eye's for they no longer can be trusted.

The Magik Of Love

Reflections in the mirror were getting scary I could not carry the weight of my pain it almost took my life to learn to love again for I have made a friend somewhere along my long lost way I hope that I helped him just a fraction of how he helped me maybe that single thought is what finally gave me my peace enough to release so much stolen energy Now I am not afraid to walk where the streets are hot for I thrive in Hell's kitchen where the devil stirs my pot for I now have him quiet tame I sacrificed my dragons at the alter of my name and now you are my slaves any time I need I'll call upon my superhero's to come and rescue me like my Saint Toni who swept me off that bridge and showed my how a death can be the greatest reason to live for she was the seed to grow my Eden then a man from a foreign land gave me something in myself to believe in the magik of Love.

Blessed By God Loved By An Angel

My love's heart tells a story
that I read within her smiling eyes
that only I can read
for they tell me how much she cares
and loves me
and no happier man could I be

Just a short time away from her
and I'm like a lost lonely child
in her I've found the sweetest paradise
she adds so much vibrant colour to my life

She makes everyday a glorious 
summers day
and I'm so thankful
that I pray

For I feel that I've been 
blessed by God
who made her just for me
and I'm being loved
by an angel.

no ripples in the lake
dripping from her face
sunshine slips across tangerine cheeks

gold flows throughout waves 
streaming locks
sky clear eyes surprise those
choosing to be consumed 
by her entice

hands free of envy
no webs to spin
hips unmolested
thighs slick

she will divide you
no voodoo 
or silly twisted games
though safe may escape you

blemish-less
untangled...
the girl
she
Goddess
baby of zero maybes
KNOWS....
how?
she knows

as clarity lent us its giant umbrella 
her lipstick smacked my tongue 
from there
we never looked back

A LIVING LEGACY: The Berean Baptist Church 157th Anniversary

the land was valued at $240, where they built "the little church on the hill"
established by a group of abolitionists and free blacks for they knew that was God's will
they named it Berean Baptist and its congregation was integrated
but after only a short time the membership separated
the church continued to prosper for the members were godly inspired
they would not let anything keep them down not even those two fires
the congregation would continue to rebuild for their faith could not be pricked
they got smart and moved  two blocks over and erect a church made out of bricks
it was a little chapel yet membership would continue on the up swing
the church needed more room, so they then added on two wings
from  Dr. Brown to Drs. Matthews, Eldridge and the Rev. Dr. James
anointed men of God who helped Berean establish a good name
from Rev. Roman  and now  Dr. Griffith with their powerful evangelistic ministries
and after 157 years  Berean is a great church with a lasting and living legacy
and with the Lord's continued blessings, His mercy and His grace
The Historic Berean Baptist Church will always be the place
where anyone and everyone can come to get godly inspiration
for Berean is the church that will set on the path to salvation

Triumph At the Cross

Triumph At the Cross “ 15And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. ” Col 2:15 NIV Christ triumphed over Satan And his unholy alliance; Made a public spectacle of evil In His sacrifice of compliance. Satan was stripped of his power; His authority lost forever. Christ in His obedience Became our High Priest of favor. Although it seemed all was lost To His disciples and followers alike, Christ’s Triumph At The Cross Began with each cruel strike. He was beaten for our healing, His blood spilt for our redemption— The Son of the Most High, Made responsible for all creation. The Triumph At the Cross Was not what it appeared. Failure to the world Was victory veneered. On the resurrection morning, Christ’s victory was made known. Demons watching His body, In great fear of God had flown. Although Christ had been tempted, Not once did He sin. His obedient life and resultant death— Ensured the Victor to win. Triumph At the Cross Rendered Satan a banished foe. To the powers of evil, This was a mighty blow. This poem is featured in my Easter Poems book Copyright © 2010-2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

Waiting for long days with my painful heart.
We shall roam and kiss each other as my heart is full of desert.
We can not forget this day of valentine.
We shall dance with rock and roll, now we are fine.
We shall kiss at open broad day of light and enjoy more and more.
Though there are so many awaits for their beloved dear.
We will gossip and will take dinner.

He will kiss and squeeze me with level best.
I will be a sweet pushy darling at night, so there no rest.

My Diamond ( My Grandmother)

Woman of God, 
A Diamond is what you are,
Beautiful & special & sweet,
A diamond a person would strive for,
Built with the lord's armor,
A diamond is the hardest thing to break,
You are shielded and protected by God,
You are my diamond,
My diamond with much wisdom,
You may be a short statue,
But you are wealthy and rich,
In my heart and in the eyes of the lord,
This is simply your time,
Your time and honor,
You deserve.
You lived a wonderful life,
Guided us and teached us the right thing to do,
And I appreciate you,
My pastor, my beautiful grandmother,
And my honorable Diamond,
Prophetess E. J. Woodford!!

I Love To Cry

When you dont look at me,
With other things to do when you are busy.
You seldom turn around and smile
You are with me, but just for a while.

I think of what will make me sad
Of things which ever make me mad.
And isolate myself away from you,
Wandering around what next to do.

And a long wait, a peek from the corner of my eye;
Feeling the pain grow, as to forget I try.
And then when it is already too late,
I notice your concerned stride past the gate.

You cuddle me, like a baby you hold,
Trying to reassure your love pre-told.
To get you near me, look at me, I could die;
And that is one reason I love to cry...

Churchbell

Bones of rotting timbre mimic 
morgues of truth
Pleading memories of oaths to rigor 
mortised youth
Snide sacrosanct hides under 
shrouds of pride
placing careful snares under 
gleaming stares
These selective few
they ingratiate you...
Even the doubtful  few
These ephemeral ghosts clapping at 
unspoken jokes
Wheezing from their throats to 
laugh as they choke.

A Poem for her Majesty the Queen on her Jubilee


To be English above all is not just a given, from the beginnings of time to the new world position.

It is of bravery and honour that has built the empire we know, that no matter what we may face no matter how big the enemy or challenge we will not quiver we shall not shudder nor walk away, our upper lip will remain stiff and the lions heart our enemy will feel in protection of Queen and country.

In a world of corruption and deceit, floundering morals as sources try to wash them away, inside this mayhem will always lay a loyal army to her Majesty and country that will fight tooth and nail to protect.
No matter the hatred or non believers we shall not fall. 

The most powerful family in the world that has ruled through generations of change and is echoed through the story of time this is my promise to you your Majesty we will always be here waiting on your every word to follow and serve as your loyal army. 

May GOD save the Queen and protect her people through time,
For we are ENGLAND . .  full of love . . . full of Pride!

Love To The Music

The music pumps the groove,
The music makes me move,
The music lights my heart,
The music bangs so hard,

The music makes me dance,
The music brings romance,
The music crowds the place,
And the music relates,

Chorus:
The music makes me wanna dance,
All night long,
The music makes me wanna dance,
And feel this song,
The music makes me wanna love you,
All night long,
(We can love)
To The Music

The music lights my soul,
The music takes control,
The music makes you love,
The music is a drug,
The rhythm of us being in love,

Chorus 2x

Affliction

The darkness of light impossible to see the pain and the lies always damaging you reach and get burned not understanding this is my disease nature of the beast Suddenly my light is taken away my darkness was revealed taking me as slave when all I ever wanted was for someone to say please stop, for me or enter an early grave Now face to face with all of my demons how can I fight them if I don't want to beat them until the reason arrives, then I shine a little at first but that small thing, is mine The den of ten thieves come up with a plan a whole set of new lies that every single man cannot resist believing it's seeming to be that a horrific ending is just what I need Then all of the sudden my small shine swallows time and with that virtue my face comes to life I would never hurt you please, know this to be yet no one believes me this curse grows like a tree I hate my helpless fate why can't I make a new life for me that no one can take why can't I escape a prison not for me for years I accept this tired sense of defeat The small shine barely intact, inside until Saint Anger starts to burn me, alive I find I'm set off by my wrong, senseless self until I am talking to no one, in Hell So I pick up my pen power to create a new world for me where I design my escape in my invisible state the Devil don't notice that one of his children is no longer hopeless I stop all my madness by power of pen for years my sword drew nothing but sin the yin and the yang both helped me to find that I'm no longer afflicted when darkness lights my bright shine.

Wedding Gift

Love is kind, honest and true.
This poem I write, A gift from me to you.

Searching hard for love
In this uncertain world you've come
to one your certain of.

Finally you've found each other
the one whom you will love forever.

Destiny attained through all time and space,
you have found each other by Gods sweet gift of grace.

Eternal love has been granted
by our Lord
Your lives enchanted.

Today is the day
A brand new start.
Open your arms
Open your heart
for you have found
your one true counterpart.

An Angel

An angel did befriend us, on earth, before one Christmas day.
Some say she was a comet, some say she was a star.
I say she was a gift from God, here to light our way.
She was a thing of beauty that shone across the land.
Leading to a humble manger, found in Bethlehem.

And what could be so important, for her to come our way?
A savior to our lands, and yes, our hearts and souls…
Triumphantly born on Christmas Day.
That day he was born the heavens truly did rejoice.
And she, a glorious light, continued to beacon forth God’s love.

Such an important part, that angel was given on that day.
She was a beacon to our hearts and the gifts of love… 
Guiding the Wise Men and shepherds endlessly along their way.
Thru her we learned lessons, such as: patience, hope, and how to give…
And yes, she led us to the Wondrous Man, who taught us how to live…

Words spoken in silence,

[When language does not suffice]

Like a look or a tear, although concise

Can echo a lifetime in your ear,

Much louder than those you can hear.

black history

I always look forward to what you say
Sometimes words in black fade to gray
No doubt as family has to find a way
We are stronger than we could have imagined
No textbook lesson is enough
To get thru life’s trials and stuff
Sometimes you have to fight and scuff
To get to day’s end
Hello, hello I rise again
I say thank you and begin, begin
A brand new journey that I’ve never seen
I stand up in it and view the scene
No one can tell me what the day may bring
Hell anything could happen and I mean anything
We don’t know the day, the hour or the circumstance
So I’m surely gonna tell my story and do my dance
While there’s still life in my body I shall have no fear
Too much purpose in my being here
I charge you today to stand my friend
Follow your journey until your destination ends
Because, we are stronger than the strongest tree
And as I look into your eyes and you look back at me
Know that even though we are different we are all family
We are historically stronger than strong
We’ve been linked together singing songs
Standing under the beat of the sun for so long
And our faith conquered all the wrong
And we are better because of it
We’ve conquered with strong character and great wit
A mind so strong, that we learned it
Even when the books were to no avail
Thru patience and perseverance in spite of the ships that did sail
And did in fact, abuse our bodies and our minds
We pushed, we sat, we gathered hand in hands in lines
To get us to where we are today
I’m thankful for those of you that paved the way

Shall We Try For One More Year

How many years now has it been – maybe fifty-seven? We’ve traveled down some pleasant roads, on our way to Heaven. We’ve looked into each other’s eyes – seen both joy and despair. We’ve wondered how we’d make it when resources were not there. In looking back to find just how this love of ours began I believe it is controlled by some divine master plan. I believe if God does not exist there’d be no you and me. And all this time together would be less than destiny. I know that my redeemer lives – God’s word tells me so – He sent you as a soul mate as through this life I go. He knew there would be obstacles; I know He put some there To determine if we’d solve them with the mighty gift of prayer. I believe the lesson we have learned in traveling down life’s road Is to bring our troubles to Him to lighten up the load. We realize that we’ve been blessed sharing time together here Still one decision faces us --- Shall we try for one more year? Written for my wife on the occasion of our 57th…12/21/12 … Let’s go again Darlin’…. John Posey

TILL DEATH DO US PART

I cherish your tenderness brought into my life

My heart sings with the rhythm of your voice

No one is better for the position called “wife”

You’re the best qualified, I have no choice

Searching the dictionary for love, is the wrong way to go

I found the definition with you as my source

It said “All’s fair in love and war

There is always a puddle on path with a course”

Sleeping is good but this is what dreams are for

Though if our love was a dream, I shall never wake

By seizing the moment with my soul to take

Our hearts shall never need mending,

As long as we’re together they should never break

I couldn’t ask God for anything more

Till death do us part I ALWAYS ADORE

Rose Petals

Glowing and white, pure liquid flowing
My heart is expanding.
And I hear angels singing a song that fills my soul.
Rose petals are falling.

A slow steady walk, a gentle loping grace.
My smiling man in all black
So gorgeous. So perfect.
So mine.
My face is shining.
The angels are singing.
Rose petals are falling.

A steady warmth
So strong, and so deep
That gentle heat fills me to my core
And I find myself falling

Falling…Falling….falling.


Rose petals are falling.

to one who was never born

to one who was never born 


I cannot fit you amongst dead sisters; 
put you to sleep with humming lullaby.

I cannot, for you 
have never been born.

Mapping a womb sometimes reveals you, 
coiling, illusory and innocent.

Just any womb 
carrying a girl.

You seem iridescent midst mother’s warmth; 
it means nothing to you, if you may

never be born as
my little sister

whom I have not put to sleep with a song.

Storm In The Wind

(Oh Girl),
You're like the storm and the wind, 
Tearin up the city and breaking the 
trees, 
Whenever I'm around you girl, 
I get weak, 
You're breaking my heart, 
And tearing up me, 
(Chorus) 
Breaking my heart, 
Breaking my heart,  (Tearing up me)
(Ooh girl)
I know we will make it, 
Even though the wind is blowing 
careless at me, 
I can't do this without you girl, 
I'll get weak, 
Stop breaking my heart, 
Bringing me to my knees,
(Chorus) 2x 
Even though the love hurricane is 
blowing careless at me, 
I can't do this without you girl, 
I'm too weak, 
You breaking my heart, 
You're the storm of the week.

As We Celebrate Independence Day

As We Celebrate Independence Day… At this time, which we celebrate our independence. Perhaps we should look at this country’s dependence. It’s like we want to be independent of God’s commands. And have brought a dependence of evil all over the land. Do we have the freedom that helped us get started? Or has the freedom we once enjoyed, long departed? We’ve allowed a tide of wickedness upon our shores! And have no idea what God’s freedom is meant for! Only Jesus can give us the freedom that we need. Only he can break the bondage of lust and greed! Only he can bring a salvation and hope that will help us! Before the corruption begins to fill and overwhelm us! Only he can provide the freedom from the bondage of sin! And bring a peace and stability to our lives again! Through Christ, there is no God and man separation! Only his blood can cleanse the heart of this nation! During this Independence Day, here’s the question; “Have you thought about going in God’s direction?” Through Christ, independence can be a daily experience. You can be changed by his power and glorious appearance! Dear Lord Jesus, as we begin our celebration… May we honor you, as the God of our nation! By Jim Pemberton

How to Invest in your Valentine Hours ?

How to Invest in your Valentine Hours ?


Daisies are Stubby,
Daffodills have a Spout,
Watch out for Cupid,
For He's Sure to be Out.

Poppies are Red,
Forget-Me-Nots are Blue,
Be Sure to get Flowers,
For your Little Missy-Sue.

Marigolds are Short,
While Sunflowers are High,
Chocolates are Sweet,
Prepare for your Cutie-pie.

Pink Pansies with Petals so Soft,
Lily of the Valleys that Smell so Sweet,
This Time and Day you Must Share,
Dinner on the Town will Be a Nice Treat.

Some Flowers like to Climb,
While many Others Seem to Crawl,
A Smile - Tight Hug with a Gentle Kiss,
Realizing your Efforts were Worth it ALL !


Written by William Arthur Tell

Lu 12:27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto 
you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Your Wedding

This is your day in the sun, Your day of triumph, Of commitment, Of promise and intention, Of New Beginnings, The end of loneliness. This is the new foundation, The plying together of bricks and mortar The bricks to give colour and shape, The mortar to give structure and soundness, So that together you are an impregnable fortress With doors of heartfelt love, Windows of vision, Rooms of peace and generousity, Furnishings of service and beauty, And a garden of sweet memories to grow. I wish you success at every turn, Joy on every path, Delight in all the little things of life, Deeply rooted and vigorously sprouting shoots of loyalty and love Nurtured on the fertiliser of experience and wisdom, And LONG LIFE TOGETHER!

Your 50th Anniversary: a tribute to Ed and Gwen Towns

It's called the golden anniversary 
when it has lasted for 50 years
when a couple manages to stay together 
through all the blood, the sweat and the tears

you've had your share of make-ups and shake-ups 
yet your love and respect for each other remained steadfast
and despite your obvious commitment to each other
there were some who did not think it would last
but Ed and Gwen you proved them all wrong
as your marriage only got better and strong

your love for each other has endured the test of time
for Jesus is your foundation and the root of your vine
together you entered into the political ring
and dealing with Congress is not an easy thing
together you raised and reared a child or two
and in spite of the teenage years somehow you made it through
to Mr & Mrs. Edolphus Towns, man and woman, husband and wife
your 50 year union is a testimony on how to have a good married life

to Ed and Gwen from your Berean Baptist Church family
we love you, we honor you and we salute you on your 50th Anniversary

My Friend Is My Love...

I couldn’t read, I couldn’t write…
That my world would no more ever be bright.
With the morning sun I would rise,
The day ahead full with surprise.
He took me here, he took me there,
We planned the day for everywhere.
We sat together all alone,
Speaking of things, which were atone.

Our minds would argue, but hearts unite,
We kept opposing, although right.
He bought me chocolates I never shared,
I would joke on him, but he never cared.
He brought me flowers from the bushes around,
A red one hidden as yellows surround.
I always pretended I would never see
But in my heart I would just let it be.

Back in my room when it was 7 again,
I would sit quiet, and feel the pain.
As I realized that another day would end,
He would stay a day longer I would pretend.
With sleepless nights my eyes would swell,
Moistened with bitter tears and love’s spell.
The morning would come and go again,
But the realization would still remain.

And one sudden  day it was the day,
He kept staring at me and couldn’t say.
I made him promise he would never let know,
When it was time for him to leave and go.
But the look in his eyes I knew there was no next day,
I couldn’t make him stop, not in any way.
I ran away, far away from where he was,
Picturing him looking at me, as that was the last.

I hurt form this world as my poem suggests
Cut from a rose that smells no more
Healing like a dove thats flown shore to shore
What became of our love thats anybodys guess
We forgot about thinking, now about what comes next

Some of the times I will remember more I will forget
It hurts today tommorrow I will give it my best
My head becomes heavy my mind becomes my nest
What to do with all of the love I have here hidden in my vest
Come to my sences my heart in my hand

From here I wish you the world
The universe a best
Untill you are willing

To Part is to Die

To part is to die;
Means forever that I
Will give my heart, body and mind,
Whenever to fight
For the rest of my life...

I will always try
To give you the sun, moon, and stars,
And everything under the sky.
I will forever strive
To quench you when you're dry,
If you're low, build you high.
Help you spread wings and fly...

To catch every tear you cry.
To never be the reason they fall from your eye.
Look into mine,
I promise no lie,
Together our dreams are infinite,
Let's bring them alive.
The world is divine,
So let's take our time,
And enjoy each treasure that crosses our line.
Thought the path may curve, each mountain we'll climb.
We'll never swerve and never divide.
Place your heart in my hand and I'll give you mine.
We'll put together our knots and let love make tie.
Swear on my entity, to never abandon your side.
No more, no less;
To part is to die.

BABILONIA

I was born in Babylon
Everyday I want to be alone
I prayed not to get low
Everyday Babylon claim more soul
I just have to go, seek for more show
I grow with no shoes under my foots
Ganger is my food, 
Mosquitoes sing the reggae allover my room 
Webs block my views, killing my crews
What can I do to survive when am buzz

Where is that place to get crazy?
That place you cannot erase,
That camp with more space,
Where you don’t have to get late
That place where you just want to be free from
“Babylon” Babylon” Babylon…I want to be free


If there is a question, it should be about relation
My action will generate your reaction
Is substitution the way to be free from Babylon?
The game is always ON, grow horns like Capricorn
Cut the vegetables; let’s be able to be stable

FREE CEE live to evolve

                           LIVE TO EVOLVE
Have you ever noticed that the  letters in the word love are sequestered inside the word “evolve?
Because to me that is what love appropriately does
It evolves
It revolves
It solves
And after sixty-plus years together love does, 
in many ways, 
change its ways of wonderment
and is often altered on a course to sheer contentment
for that is the result of the continuation of a consecrated commitment
an abiding faith that the others faith rests upon the others shoulder
as they grow ever so much older
remembering a time of working hard together to get through the hard times together
that old fishing boat she hated so that became battered and eventually succumbed to the weather
while all the while smiling because each year seemed a bit brighter than the last
and all the joyful events that are now part of a bejeweled and fulfilling past
a past reflected in each partner's eyes which gaze upon a tribute to dedication
a coupling worthy of adulation
he being content to make her content proves the content of their cohabitation
a union rich with rewards that come in the mail bearing pictures of their first great grandson born
a baby with beauty by an angel at birth besworn
so there they sit sharing a couch and swapping a calliope of memories
he talks of fishing and she of a cool Autumn breeze
as each agrees
sixty-plus years weaves two souls together as tightly as any weaver ever wove a sweater
and for some fated reason the last decade seems somehow, in retrospect, better
well not so much better as just plain more comfortable
no surprises, no red flags, and no warnings to heed
just a mutual and spiritual type of need
the need to talk away a partners tears
while knowing that his partner truly hears
and dries her eyes compliantly
to face yet another hardship defiantly
ever eager with a gentle finger to wipe away the wet that it might no longer linger
because these are two who vowed with strength that forever, to them, actually meant forever
traversing together mile after mil
through the trials.. through the riches and through each smile
but most notably through all the determination together to damn away their fears
it seems to me that love evolves ever so softly after sixty-plus years

The Day of Infamy

I can't imagine what goes through a girls mind,
As she lives grows and encounters the blues,
Looking for prince charming in the nick of time,
To carry her off on a journey that begins with two.

Most guys I know tremble at the thoughts of getting married,
They run hide say not for sale and crack other jokes for fun,
Guys think ball chain hang us now or let me be buried,
However with smitten heart they come with eyes fixed on one.

The day comes which the two have planned at last,
It seemed like forever this moment to arrive,
Hand in hand giving rings and vows shall they cast,
The Lord over them teaching them how to thrive.

Next stop vacation fun and the honey moon suite,
Then lessons of how to live together and pet peeves will spawn,
Moving on in their future we hear the pitter patter of little feet,
A home the lady will keep tidy while the man cuts the lawn.

Years will pass by and changes shall take place,
Children now grown and ready to leave the nest,
But the two remain in tact thankful for each other and new space,
Knowing it was God who helped them excel and pass each test.


Hebrews 13:4a - "Marriage is honourable in all,..."

Homeward Bound

I can’t wait for the day I’m home,
But where is home?

Is it a past memory of childhood of the family sitting around the living room watching the TV with a takeaway on a Saturday night?

Or is it the future that’s yet to be created, a family of your own and a new place to call home?

Maybe it’s a feeling one of love and joy the kind you first created playing as a young boy?

But I believe it is not just one of the above, but them all in twined into a magical feeling, one of wonder and belief.

It is to complex for us to understand now but trust me my friends, when your home . . . you’ll know.

Sin

Anguish taunts through a barbed wire fence with edged grasp

Actions in which human beings rebel against a holy God
Miss their purpose for their lives
Surrender to the prince of the power of the air more then God
Cause  all of their deeds were evil!

Shattered
An eclipse of the sun had tainted my inner vision
Push back the pain with radiant guide
Does this notion in thought come at any big surprise?

Weak willed tyrants from the flood of dispinsation
Shattered fragments loosed in gloom climatic abrasion
Parts unknown from the setting of the sun
Sin

Leading gullible women captive under the false cloak of compromise
Abortion on demand
When will they ever understand?

Blood shed in our streets
Evil tyrants from elected officials overly prideful taunt & pull!
We each our responsible for our actions before a holy God
Sin!

Euphorianah'

The sapphire sun of what-were dreams
Setting in the forsaken east
My winters' desperation clung to your silent voice
Let death be a choice
Dusk revealed your truest nature
Before her argentine eyes
'Tis the darkest of tragedies, romances' maladies
Let your forgiveness be la Vie In this frozen air
The wings of my deepest despairs

Friend or foe?
The dagger close to my heart--
If your forgiveness is nigh
Let me know--or is this all a lie

Lilyheart Swain
Please don't give into your pain
You hold my soul on Eden's Edge

Your innocent flesh
Cradled in my broken arms
Forever you will be mine, forever you will stay
The snow caressing us as we tangle in deathly embrace
This darkness fades into amber innocence 
Hatred no longer exists
Forgive me
Come back my only
Euphorianah

The winterwind tears carress me
With whispers, (of) Someone I Once knew
Calming the fears inside
But the pain remains
--hallcunary rains 

Dreams fading with the Enya in your eyes
With the darkness of your hands
The silverfears of the pale moon
Shine on you

Lilyheart swain 
Please don't give into your pain
You hold my soul on Eden's Edge

Your innocent flesh
Cradled in my broken arms
Forever you will be mine, forever you will stay
The snow caressing us as we tangle in deathly embrace
This darkness fades into amber innocence 
Hatred no longer exists
Forgive me
Come back my only
Euphorianah

Your eyes search for mine
Oh how they shine, blue 
Sacrdice has a price
Heaven is calling us tonight

Cursed In shadowed illusions
Shall we dance?
Would there be a chance
Euphorinah 
Forgive me now
I will rip out every nail 
Of your coffin
I don't care if it's God it will offend

Lilyheart Swain
Please don't give into your pain
You hold my soul on Eden's Edge

Your innocent flesh
Cradled in my broken arms
Forever you will be mine, forever you will stay
The snow caressing us as we tangle in deathly embrace
This darkness fades into amber innocence 
Hatred no longer exists
Forgive me
Come back my only

I Do Love You

I do love you,
I cannot describe it,
The love my heart and soul, and my whole being feels for you my love.

I do love you, 
I dream and daydream, of that day where you say I do,
Because that means you love me too.

I do love you,
You make me laugh when I am sad, and you pick me up when I am down, and you are the light of my bad day.

I do,
I do are just simple words, but they mean a lot to me,
You see, they are not just three letters, they aren't just two words,
These two words go a long way.

I do love,
You taught me how to contain myself, and not lose myself, and not get mad too easily, if I do, I can quickly recover from it.

So I want to say thank you my baby Dustin James Palmer, for being there for me and saying,
I do love you.

ALL OF THE YEARS THAT HAVE PASSED; EMBRACE ME

SO MUCH TO CAPTURE IN A SINGLE VERSE
SO MUCH FOR THE BETTER THAN FOR THE WORSE

AND HOW FOREVER HAS REMAINED WITHIN OUR REACH
SO MANY DREAMS, SO MANY DESIRES

AND ALL OF OUR PROMISES AND ALL OF OUR WISHES
CONTINUE EACH DAY TO EMBRACE US
AND HOLD US FIRMLY SIDE BY SIDE…

IN MY HEART I TRACE BACK THE TIME
DAY BY DAY AND WEEK BY WEEK
ONE MONTH TO THE NEXT AND EVER SO SLOWLY
ALL OF THE YEARS THAT HAVE PASSED; EMBRACE ME

AS WITH EVERY EMOTION THAT FLOWS THROUGH ME

My Icy Grave

My name is Paul, a boy of sixteen years when the Titanic became my icy grave. To the ocean floor, I drowned with dreams and fears, like my dad, a fisherman, lost in the waves. When we boarded the ship, my mother heard cries. A premonition dismissed with hopes and sighs. In a half-empty lifeboat, denied a seat, my destiny to die but not in defeat. Mother begged for my life then returned to die with me. Half empty lifeboats floated as the band played a hymm. Angels descended on mother and son in the cold sea and carried us to my father in Heaven's bosom.

For My Husband

I love you for being my husband.
I thank you for all your love.
I thank you for being there,
A special person sent from above.
I thank God for sending you to me,
For giving me a life with you.
And our children he entrusted me.
Your acceptance, guidance and care,
Given so unconditionally.
Together with my love and certainty,
Give us so much to share.
I feel a special bond not there before.
It gets stronger every day.
Making within me such awesome happiness,
My heart longs to soar.
I know that I am not always perfectly undoubting.
We both have our failures and imperfections.
I think, however, our short comings and trials
 Build between us stronger connections.
I believe that God has brought us together,
Because each has a lot to offer the other.
You, as the father and husband,
And me, as the wife and mother.

                                                                    Summer Gratias

Love has a World of Crime too

Wouldn't it be the perfect crime?
If I stole your heart, and you stole mine?
But instead you stole my heart and I never had yours to begin with,
Somehow it took me until now to realize this,
 
You got to know me and I got to know you,
But you only got to know me and did what you had to do,
You never said anything about you; I did all the talking,
You basically read about me and at the end you started walking,
 
To start sharing everything like we had the least,
But you still didn’t care you just took the last piece,
I love you and you love me to,
But all you can do is make a man blue,
 
I hold your hand and you hold mine,
Our love like a betrayal of two harmonious rhymes,
I kept the love and you kept the hate,
But you couldn’t love you can probably only date.
 
Forever I thought but you’re a soul stealer,
You don’t feel love you’re a hate feeler,
You’re doing all of the most conniving crimes,
You shouldn’t kill love because now you got to do all the time.

The Wickedness That Abounds

The Wickedness That Abounds! Throughout this world, wickedness abounds! Just about everywhere, it can be found! God’s word says sin leaves a very dark stain. We have no one else, but ourselves, to blame! The heart of man is desperately wicked inside! It causes many to be filled with much pride! We often hear of tragedy shown on the t.v. You may think, “this will never happen to me!” A mind without God, gives the devil “fertile soil.” It’s like water in a teapot that’s ready to BOIL! Without God’s word, as our guide and rule… We’re empty inside, and are easily fooled! The goodness of God can calm the troubled heart! On your knees in prayer, is a good place to start! The grace of Jesus is powerful! And can instantly change! With Jesus, your life can be restored, and “ re-arranged!” All of the government spending cannot match HIS power! With Christ… You can overcome anything! This very hour! Please Jesus, come and remove our burdens amongst us! We need you here today! And to always be with us! YOU ARE what we need all across this great nation! By the power of your blood and wondrous salvation! By Jim Pemberton 05/09/13

Dedicated To A New Future

Every year is a new chance,
To do better with our lives,
But my life is still empty,
Without you here by my side.

I keep hoping that this year,
Will be different from the past,
And you won't be any where close,
To all the rest.

A part of me wants to believe,
That our lives will be,
As one as a couple should,
However, only time and God will see.

Take these words and cherish them,
Cause I want you to be,
The one who really touches my heart,
And proves that what I am feeling,
    Is not just a tease.

You can be my wife,
In the years to come,
If you want to show my heart,
That these feelings are very true,
     And are not dumb.

God's Plan for Marriage


There’s a truth that remains since 
the beginning of time.
God created man and woman, 
 with marriage in mind.

From the dust of the ground,
Adam was formed.
From his side came Eve.  A new life was “born!”

God’s design for marriage became 
very evident and clear…
If not for Adam and Eve,
 none of us would be here!

Marriage is a blessing from God.  
A gift from God above.
A man and a woman come together
 as an expression of their love.

Anything different than one man 
and woman is perverted.
This is a lie from our culture that
 is trying to be “inserted.”

God gave us all a natural love 
with a strong ambition.
To come as a husband and wife 
is a God given intention!

Read from the books of Genesis
 thru Revelation…
God’s idea of marriage is
 for any person or nation.

Many can try to change what God
 has already designed.
It’s no wonder why so many have 
“confused” minds.

Let’s come back to God and
 trust him with our life!
The one who set up marriage as; 
“one husband and one wife!”

Capital Carnage

Remember, Remember, the 7th of July,
When seven explosions decided who’d die .
As underground stations were bombed into hell,
To fulfil the sick plans of a terrorist cell.

Remember the slaughter, destruction and pain,
And the people who'll not see their families again.
Remember the ones who are injured for life,
Who’ll carry their scars through a lifetime of strife.

Remember that people can be so pervert,
As to follow a cause and care not who they hurt.
Is this what's become of the whole human race?
The way some behave is a tragic disgrace.

We'll stand up for Country, for God, and for Queen,
And glorify all that is bloody obscene.
We don't give a damn for the carnage we cause,
As long as we think that we've backed the right horse.

Remember, remember, when London was bombed,
By terrorist bastards who sung their own song.
But it's not only them who are in evil's spell,
It's half of mankind who reside there as well.

Ivor G Davies

(This poem was written on the day during the aftermath of this carnage)

Festi and Fireworks

Zurrieq Festa our destination
Driving off late into the night
Over terrible roads, chasing islanders
All worth it to see the sight.

The church golden and brightly lit
Shining out for all to see
Bunting and stalls lining the streets
Everywhere people, excitement is building
Bands lining up to be heard as they march.

Suddenly it's midnight!

Melodic sounds keep time with fireworks
Each display more impressive than the last
Whirling and twirling freely on posts
Physics at the base of their design
As beauty shines through in the colours and patterns
Hands clapping, people cheering, part of the moment.

Sparkling

 I watched the paper soak up the ink
as it blotched in breast strokes across the page...
 suddenly I was street bound
in hand signals
legs, pinned to the pavement
as July scrolled by in reverse
and a name scrawled across
the wheat covered hills...

 A single day took it's light 
from the crayon colored buildings
and the laughter rang from
a beautiful city where the call 
of seagulls brushed it's wings
against my cheek like friends
embraced, arm in arm, 
our hopes, crushed
long before infancy.

I plucked a locus from my eye
as petals of golden Roses 
littered the street like pieces
of shattered poetry.

The Ultimate Birthday

As the snow falls we sit by the fire
Thinking what a beautiful sight to see
Shimmering lights all around
Children's eyes all aglow
Bows, ribbons and wrapping too
All these things for me and you
From God above to show his love
On this the day
The anniversary of his son's birth
So as we open our gifts
And spend time with family and friends
Let us give thanks to God our Father
For giving his only son for you and me

Our Park

Sublime winter wind
dripping icicles on the bench-
where we first met-
our first treasured kiss,
subtle and sweet-
just like the lake's frozen serenity
and the blue jay's soft hum
reminding us of our youth-
pure, adventurous,
no worry.
But even the bark now has faded
and our smiles eventually frown,
the haunted branches remind us only of what happened.
Even the blue jay now remains perked upon the crooked branch,
clinging for his life while the others flew south a long time ago.
Winter's kiss was now a curse-
never changing-
fixed time.
And this curse is my every day,
you're presence vanished,
leaving me in the cold,
on this half-frozen bench,
where the tree's roots reach 
and the swans once danced-
heaven's clouds burden my torn soul
yet through all the misery,
all the memories we created,
I come here now to visit
I come here to feel you're comfort
they say your duties remain where you felt most at home
and with you it's haunting 
our park.

with lifted hands,always.

We witness today,His good news

rememberance of His stripes and pain
in that death,we live again.

A Comforter,for one and all
empowers,if we call,
close by,at hand,within us now
as,in worship,we bow.

Far and wide,these truths we forthtell
in our joyful hallel,
these songs of Easter praise now heard,

Candle in the Wind

I've made this trip 1000 times,
For better or for worse,
This wooden bench that wore my spine,
Is where we had our first...
This cupcake and a candle,
Is the most that I could carry,
To celebrate the life we spent,
Everyday that we were married...
In spirit you still have a home,
To lay and rest your head,
Although it feels like Im alone,
I can feel you in my bed...
Every picture has a deeper meaning,
Than it ever did before,
So I look for you in every dream,
Until I cant cry anymore...
And the candle left a year ago,
Leaves me without a doubt,
That when the wind decides to blow,
It is you who blew it out...

for both of us, so it’s up to me & you to make it work, and see it through.

Baby, please cherish my heart and take my hand. Vowing to love each other till the very end.

IF CHRISTMAS DIDN'T EXIST

Imagine how sad December would seem
if Christmas didn't exist; only the chill
and wind would be felt through the frozen bones,
nobody would live in these northern, frigid zones. 


What was the true purpose of Jesus's birth?
Some even would say that it never occurred,
and why would the Magi travel long days
and nights to pay homage to the humblest of Kings?


It was prophesied by Isaiah in the Old testament and the Wise Men believed him,
following with awe the biggest and brightest star that they had ever seen;
and didn't it seem strange that God would choose those simple shepherds
to be the first to hear that message sung by a thousands of angels?


Wouldn't you be happy when a child cries out and enters life?
Wouldn't you celebrate that event with overwhelming joy and grace?
The same way Jesus entered this world to suffer and die,
and if Christmas didn't exist, who would remember who He was?


Wouldn't that envious angel, whom God expelled from Heaven with haste,
laugh loudly, knowing that we don't worship Him in spirit and faith? 
Fallen Angels are the eternal enemies of this Child, who atoned our sins
by paying with His precious blood...to vindicate the Devil's astute lies!


If Christmas didn't exist, some unbelievers would shout and rejoice,
happy to erase Christ's redemptive message from the earth's surface...
contradicting the Scriptures themselves and the Divinity behind it!
Didn't Herod the Great hate Jesus, fearing He would have become the new King?

Freedoms Verse

Written in stone, not an honor but rather a reminder
Written into the bone, no longer in pain but in solace
Written and never gone, far longer than they should be
Written as a tear on someones cheek, that was never meant to be
Written as heroes for doing what we should all endeavor to do

Write their names down, carved into the depths of memory
A reminder there it shall sustain our thoughts and prayers
And serve to constantly acknowledge that they have already
Written freedoms verse.

P.S. Those of you out there who are writing this down, and think that perhaps you will pen the next poem or prose in its antithesis.  May I remind, that those who pen evils, will barely be a footnote to the epic that they have already written.

How all of it happened

And all of this happened by taking your hand…
We were two strangers, knowing each-other,
We turned into lovers, now we need one another.
Since then were a duo and when together,
We forget all the others and live forever.

And all of this happened by taking your hand…
We were just friends, laughing about the weather,
Who we became can be seen through an angel’s feather.
And if we are cheerful on this golden way,
Then my love and yours will be here to stay.

So frigid was her immaculate body Her last second in screams is all I can see Love's revenge was my guilt With you I'd rather let you die with Bound hands Without you, Marie, like the psychopath's dream Death is all that I can see; All that could redeem Did anyone ask Did anyone recall The sweet taste of the poison The swift slash of the knife he penetration of the lead The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Was it so hard to solve Was it so hard to see That I strangled her so easily My nails piercing her comely skin Blood dripping like the pomegranate I crushed with the shovel I shattered her shins The knife to slight her wrists Didn't you see I did it all The only witness Couldn't say Is the coffin too deep?

My Pa







Had a dream about my Pa tonight, We all went out with them to Lake Loral Nancy His wife cooking up a good ol' Chicken Pot Stew slow-cooked set way up high atop the hickory us loading up the Bayliner for our afternoon fishing trip. We reminisced, Canoe in toe as we used to do just in case, yes just as we did back then; you-know if either would wished to float to one or more sides with the Canoe tied to the railings of the boat, or more or less to widen the chance at a greater spot to cast a gander upon our luck... . My Father by adoption; having-stated many times early on in-all of our teenier all together, God being-in-charge of all good-Blessings and if-you will--luck... we'll always catch some albeit one Yes I began to see through this statement he mentioned often God is always presenting always providing this-His Honest Hope, for us both--as I believe like my Pa, for any one yes everyone who is patient remains-open... ! Our woes, and Peace abiding... uncertainty grievances questions yes laughter were our main recollections as we dropped our first lines as we cast them... . I tell you I truly did love Him, still love Him, will always I figure... yes I know Some folk are so defined never wish to grow any further their Character divorced by Cancer, Nary did my Father allow it. On the day he passed He told Nancy, "I love my life. My Family Children. Love all those close to me.... but I'm tiered just plain wore out." the Lord took Him that night, the next day forthcoming I was told and O how I cried — But then realized as I saw he lived the greater life - He worked on this purpose until the day he died, and so for all he work for this final reprieve — it was for all of the ones he loved, because I feel for all whom he loved, he'd prayed for all to do the same... Yes a suffering in kind the same I'm seeing now - All-of-it I'm-finding; because he taught me the greater of his Faith nary a day apart from Him, and me... his youngest Son two Others older Sons if you will, yes I feel his family and friends still have this eminent belief to boast; Yes, in-the Company--Comfort... of Jesus' Peace... !

The Day the Crows Came

There lies in Salem
An abandoned church
It's outer walls
Blackened to black
 
The story behind this
Goes back many years
In the witches trials
17th century fears
 
Two courts
Convicted twenty nine people
Nineteen were hanged
From high, like a steeple
 
On the day they were hanged
As witches they were tamed
The skies above became black
Its the day the crows came
 
The church became shadowed
Under their mass in the sky
Lured by the nineteen
Who were hung out to dry
 
What did they do
To be become so feared
In these days of the past
When anybody could be smeared
 
Every year
Is exactly the same
The skies become black
The day the crows came

Heavy Metal

The heavy metal series of poetry demonstrates an inner ability to speak words of 
kindness; Toward the resolve of the 1980's heavy metal scene; To demonstrate a 
reasonable high calibur of interest; To the average novice of intellect, It's plausible 
words ring in the ears;

Heavy Metal pt. I

In a torn branch withered in the wind

A silence toward its beckoning call
With a silver dollar tossed in a pool
It pays to stay focused then to lose your cool
The one that has no faith in God will lose their cool

Ronnie James Dio was the first ever to address this rule,

His was to slay the dragon in the rule of the game;
In shattered lined that wound & bind
A silence to its beckoning call;
The child listens then cry's in pain,


In ardent briars close to insane;

With cloves filled wretched stench in sulfur,
Amidst the closet drawer below the offer;
A deadly fix on the mainstream headlong,
Heavy metal in twisted leather chains,

Through shattered dreams within vilest pain,

In its ambiance of shelter amidst its cry;

To fall headlong then to believe its ultimate lie!

Faces in the window with storms in the night;

Having fallen face down in viscous fangs that bite,
Often dripping blood off side;
So easy to run away & hide in the night
With a heavy metal pull ravaged to plunder;

~

Heavy Metal pt. II

In full view of havoc proned to desolation in vile misery

The balance of an equestrian melody,
With pages torn on its new episode
Throgh a whole host in vile lamentation;
In mere brilliance from its setting sun

Amidst certain periods of social demise;

A short fuse in its reluctant quest,
With words spoken in the dark in certain conquest
Has now come into the fullness of light soaring bright
Chase dreams from your hair my sweet child chose the day;

To stand up and shout amidst the inner pain,

Shattered dreams amidst its painted glass yet intact
Hallways filled no one gets off on any free pass;
Faces in the window with storms in the night,
A laborer is intended to enter into its fullest of rest;

Faces in the window with storms in the night !

Heavy metal in the center of its scattered plight

The clear voice in reason is our successful right,
In this life never relent in ever giving up on the fight,
Keep your promises & attire,
We live in a world that is very strange!

They will take advantage & rearrange in the membrane,
Desolate cry's with wounded twisted lies;
Proned to silence amidst the greeting of its beckoning call

Donkey Mumma Seh

Donkey mumma seh
A wha mi going duh
Good Christmus mawning to yuh
Little lamb nuh die more, nuh die no more
Good Christmus mawning to yuh
O red rich heifer nuh cry nuh more, nuh cry no more
A wha mi going duh
Donkey mumma seh

Mi bawn fi carry de load
A people sin deliverer
Pon' Bethlehem' dusty road
Him a cum a mi manger

But when all is said and done
Fore dem nail to the cross
Mi we carry de load mi one
Mary betta cry for is her loss

From cradle mi friend
Mi ha fi carry him, mi ha fi carry him
Until man sin shall end
Mi ha fi shelter him, mi ha fi shelter him


NB: This Christmas carol is totally Jamaican flavor, seeing things from the donkey point of 
view. Donkey mumma seh (donkey mother says); A wha mi going duh (what am I going to 
do). Christmus: Christmas; Mawning: morning; yuh: you; nuh:don't; bawn:born; fi:to; 
cum:come; mi:my. Donkey tell the story that sheep and cattle will not die again for sacrifice, 
but he will still be carrying the load because of sin. The melody is Jamaica folk ... no objection 
to experiment.

Christmas

It is there when all is silent and quiet.
With sugar plums and misled toes dancing in thoughts.
Most time you can see the snow fall as kids play about.
As it is winter time and Christmas is hear again.
And it’s peace and giving again.

But do we always give thanks?
Or is it just during certain times of the year.
But do we truly remember the day!
The day when Christ our Savoir was born.
It was that of a Christmas day.

When Mary gave birth and gifts come from far and beyond.
For this day, there was a new King that had been born.
That all gave glory before Christmas was destroyed.
For there in his heart he gave Jesus unto us to rein.
That in the days at hand, we would know the true love.
And in our hearts he would rein.

It was there somewhere far beyond.
That Christmas is known as king of the year.
For it is there to which a new year rings in.
For there I say Merry Christmas and God Bless my friend.

Hope you think of the real meaning of Christmas this year..
To always be thankful through out the year.
For each day is a blessing just to breathe.
But each day was about giving and caring about the one of no name.
That in your heart, you find a love of that Christmas day.

As you find the spirit of kindness everyday.
May you share a joy of it to the passer by...?
That the spirit of Christmas lives and never dies.
That each day will be in Christ our King.
And In your heart, he will always rein
And that is a true Christmas Day!

Love Come's Naturally

As I sit here beside you,
I can only think of what else I would do
To make you happy, see that smile I love
Show you why I fell in love with you!

I don’t ever need a holiday to tell you I love you
To show you how much I care
I could buy you flowers and chocolates everyday
I wouldn’t ever need time to prepare
I’d know when you’re sad
Know when you’re having a bad day
Call you even when you’re at work
Just to show you I’m here to stay
Through it all I would appreciate you
Give you compliments even when we fight
Kiss you every morning as you wake up
And before we fall asleep each night
I would cry with you
Share the pain so you never feel alone
Would make you proud
Of the fact that we can share a home
We would take turns cooking
Make memories that you would never forget
Share with you my passion
And get through each day with no regrets
Hold you in my arms
In those tough times
And lay beside you
As you cry…
Kiss you and let you know
That everything will be just fine
Because I love you so much
And always have your best interest in mind

Someday when we get old
It will be side by side
Hand in hand
I would make sure in the end that I did my best
To make it a beautiful ride!

blake

to think he finally found his answer to 
releif,
would only leave pain and greif.
to end his own suffering and 
pain.
what would friends and family have to gain?
his life felt pointless thanks to past pain,abuse, and lifes trials and tribulations.
suicide was not tha answer,
if he only knew he shoulda been thankful.
what he went through was horrible 
yes
but staying possitive was tha 
test.
everything happens for a reason,
to find strength in god to breathe another season.
this was not destiny nor 
fate.
he had a whole life ahead of him now its to
late.
now near a casket they sit at his wake.
maybe it coulda been prevented if he knew he wasnt alone
instead of taking a life in his own home..
Reach out your not alone
god has a purpose for all us.....

On Thanksgiving Day

It’s another red-letter day
a holiday in the U.S.
a national, religious holiday
known also as a ‘Turkey Day’
a very important day.

A chance to be reconnected,
a moment of being together,
a salutary occasion for gratitude,
full with family folderol.

There are historic reasons 
this American celebration
has its origin centuries ago;
as the Pilgrims did it and -
invited neighboring Indian tribes.

To hold it with a feast –
A celebration for God’s blessing.
giving thanks for a common purpose,
freedom, justice, and worship in God.
Through Sarah Josepha Hale 
this event has become a tradition
a realization that came to fulfillment
marked with significance, thus far.

With church services elsewhere
wth family reunions all over 
with customary turkey dinner
oh, a reminder of the historic past:
at the Pilgrims’  big celebration.

In many homes and families
Table fellowships spice up the day
with turkey, mashed potatoes, 
cranberry sauce, maize, pumpkin pie
and other vegetables and desserts.
a complete picture of this great tradition.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BELOVED

I have never come here
because I was sure I wouldn't find you,
but now that I have arrived
this silent autumn's garden
makes me feel you may be around
I don't hear your steps
like a lost tired ghost
or see your shining transparence
or listen to a whispered voice.
No, I can't feel hot or cold
or any creeping sensation.
It is just that when I read your name
in this clean and clear marble
and saw your black and white picture
where you appear so young, so healthy,
(I had chosen it myself)
when this silence invaded my soul
and the image of this garden
brought me the memories
of your happy and strong steps
through the grass of our house,
and these memories came so alive
I knew you were at my side
Well, what to do?
I sit in this nearby grave
and lay down on your lap
waiting for the old peace to come.
Dad, is it true
that you have talked to my brother
and that you have helped him?
Is it true that he has asked
and that you have answered?
I was the one who used to believe
in such unbelievable things, remember?
And yet I hadn't come here before today
for I was sure I wouldn't find you.
As you can see dad, I changed my mind.
I changed my faith and so did my way
two seconds after your leaving.
I was supposed to be the strongest
I am ashamed of my weakness
Would you forgive me, my father?
Could you?
I felt lost, dear
I felt angry, and I felt alone
I hated God, I hated to be alive.
Now that I have come
and that you are here . . .
I can see my wasted life
Not anymore, my love
Not anymore, heavenly God
Eat this marshmallow pie I brought
and let's enjoy your birthday.
Thank you for bringing me back
to the good old times
and o.k., Mr. Silly 
for next year, strawberry pie.

Anniversary

Anniversary


She sits with him in silence
Don’t have much to say
Today is very special
So the words just went away

His eyes are so bright
It what’s she likes about him
 Can brighten a whole room
Even when the lights are dim

She looks at his smile
And then she starts to cries
And could not touch her
To even dry her eyes

He promise to love her
And always be there
 She wonders of he remembers
And if He still care

He use to take her
Every where he would go
But the last place he went
He should have taken her also

Sometimes she gets upset
And ask him why he hurt her
But no matter how much she ask
He still would not give an answer

And how he loves her
She always know that he does
But now he don’t talk to her
Or even send her flowers

The place are getting dark
Time flies so fast
When she’s with him
The day just past

Then she tells him
We have been thru so much
And now I’m here 
And can’t even feel your touch

She is so tormented
And in the end she gets angry
And then she gets silence
When her heart gets so lonely

What’s the use of me surviving?
Thru this raging storm
Knowing in my life
That everything is gone

Then she gets ready to go
She says happy anniversary
And then she drives away 
Thru the gates of the cemetery

Remember

                          As we embark on the 10 year anniversery of 9/11,
                  I look up in the sky and realize how lucky I am to be alive.
                   So many people lost their loved ones on that tragic day.
        All the brave, couragous, selfeless people that ran in to help total strangers!
         They never for once thought about their life but, only wanted to others survive.
            The day the two towers fell, those suicide bomber's died and went to hell!
               The United States suffered a great loss, so much death was in the air.
        I pray every night for those who lost their life, for their families to keep astride.
          I know what it is like to lose loved ones but, in the mist of all the tragedy, 
                           a phoenix shall rise and the eagel shall fly high!
                        The terrorists thought we would just run and hide.
                             But, what we did was fly OLD GLORY HIGH! 
              We as a nation banded together and helped pray for one another.
                    September 11,2001, we will never foreget all the losses.
               All the people that did not survive, they are watching over us,
                                              dancing high in the skies!

The Journey

If you look for the rainbow after the storm you will find
That the struggle is because you were blind
But when the scales are lifted you will see
That even in the midst of the storm you are free
And the rays of light become more brilliant each day
It becomes clearer that this dark place is not where you will stay
For the plans He has for you are so beautiful and real
That nothing has the power over your soul to steal
The peace and joy that is worthy for you to receive
If you just look towards the light you will begin to believe
That only He has lifted you out of that dreadful place
He lifted you up with the power of His grace
So now your journey begins with a tiny ray of hope
But it’s all you need, to see the scope 
Of the real picture painted before your eyes
A work of art that can be seen only by the wise
And how wise you’ve become because of the test
 You must pass before you can rest
But once you fight that fight you are so much stronger than before
You even begin to welcome more
So you can be refined like a diamond in the rough
Oh Lord, this journey seems so tough 
But you keep on searching for the love He promises to pour out to you
The clouds are clearing the skies look blue
And the sun is shining, shining so brilliantly upon your soul
That you start to feel strong, you will not fold
You’ll continue the journey forevermore
 Because His love has brought you out of the storm and onto the shore
So you lay so still as you look at all the blessings found in the beauty of His gifts
And suddenly the darkness shifts 
To light and hope and strength and love
And you know in your heart this can only come from the one above

VIRTUOUS LIFE OF MOTHER

Mom was a person of indisputable integrity...
teaching siblings the strict rules of equality.


A voice of tender words to remember her by...
a dazzling light invading my tenebrous sky.


Mother was more glittering and worthier than any gold...
with the purest faith and the wisdom of growing old.


I was very blessed to have had such a loving, nurturing mother...
her purity vanquished my vicissitude, and kept me from error.


She adored jewels, but she loved me more than them...
and she wore a long necklace of opulent elegance. 


I am very proud and glad to have inherited that spirit from the South... 
and reflecting on her virtuous life, it has given me strength and worth.

I Can't Explain Part 2

...I can't explain the secure feeling when you hold me and sleep I can promise that I love you ~ I can promise I won't creep I can't explain why you take over my heart You had me in the beginning ~ at the very start I can't show you that I love you, as much as I do I can promise you one thing though, what I speak is true I can't explain the amazement ~ when you catch me in a stare I can't explain to you how much it means just to know you care I don't know why I know know my babies will be yours I can't thank you enough, to fix my heart when it was torn I can't explain to you how much you mean Sometimes I take a step back and wonder, "am I in a dream?" To hold you close to me at night please know I want you to teach me to love you even more ~ please show I want to spend the rest of my life with you Please believe me when I say this, for it is 100% true I miss you even when your down a hall I hear random whistles and I look for your call For my father to love you, as he says he does It means so, so, much to me ~ it always was I can't explain the impact you have on my big heart Your everlasting love pierced through my world like a dart The love poison you poisoned me with will show But for now all I can say is that I love you ~ just so you know

Darkness Vs Light

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.” I often wish to dwell in the light But there are always those useless excuses That allows me to lose insight But I always end up with these endless bruises “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” I try to disregard the hate burning inside But there are always those people who I don’t appreciate Sometimes I just want to cower and hide Away from the love that has transformed into impure hate But someone will come out to stand up for what is truly ours And, eventually love will prevail!

THE MONEY FOR HER DIAMOND

     In the heat of July, 
While bringing in the hay, 
He gave her a baling wire ring, 
And this is what he had to say... 

     “Someday I’ll put a diamond, 
Here on your hand. 
A diamond pure and perfect, 
As sure as I’m your man. 

     But, you know, a diamond, 
It won’t ever shine, 
As long or as bright, 
As this love of yours and mine.” 

     So they saved for her diamond,  
By putting little bits away, 
Money for the diamond, 
He would buy for her one day. 

     But the money for her diamond, 
Fixed the tractor and bought a plow, 
And in the dead of winter, 
Paid the vet. bill for the cow. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Put the water to the barn, 
And paid the increased taxes, 
The county levied on the farm. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Paid the doctor in town, 
And when their daughters were all grown, 
It bought the wedding gowns. 

      It paid for the new roof, 
When the big wind came through. 
Then it it paid off the mortgage, 
Before it was due. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Was always well spent, 
She never even asked him, 
Just where the money went. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Helped them to survive, 
The money for her diamond, 
Kept their hopes and dreams alive. 

    Today it’s been sixty-three years, 
And the diamond is on her hand. 
But, as usual, in her pocket, 
Lies her original wedding band. 

     A twist of baling wire,  
Bent and covered up in rust, 
A symbol of the greatest of loves, 
His Promise and Her Trust.

The value of a partner

(Heartily presented to Prince Charles
especialy on a wedding occasion)

When I met him in the market
He wasn’t feeling very well
Walking very slow and having a cough
When I started my conversation
I found: his heart was still burning
He said,’ what’s your meaning?
Do you need a partner?
I wasted my life for my children
When I was young
I had lost my wife
And never have second, Thought
Perhaps she will not care properly to my children
But in my olden days 
I found it: that was my main mistake
Not to having a partner for me
Why are you agreeing to have one?
When my children was child
I care for them
When they grown up
Never came back to see me
I failed to fight with my loneliness
A person cannot understand 
The value of a partner
It is a matter of understanding?
If a person is not able
To read the feelings of a heart
The beauty has no matter for him.

A Day to Remember

A day to remember; eleven September;
The year -two thousand and one.
Blue sky so pretty, over New York City,
The workday barely begun.

Out of the sky, with a terrible roar,
The first plane hit the Tower.
Soon into view, came one plane more.
Two strikes within the hour!

Fire and smoke; and terrified folk,
Trying to escape with their lives.
Some got away, but many perished that day:
Single people--and husbands--and wives.

In Washington D.C.,came strike number three
On the Pentagon--seat of the military.
The scene-much the same:another hijacked plane.
Oh, how this day turned so scary!

There was also one more;but Plane number Four
Had people who refused to yield.
Soon they began to foil the enemy's plan, 
And forced a crash in a field!

America discovered that day-in a horrible way, 
That we were no longer immune.
This was a wake -up call, that shook one and all,
But we began to rally real soon!

The enemy assumed with glee,that he had brought us to our knees.
Yet the thing he misunderstood,
Was that although we were there, we were kneeling in prayer!
Out of evil would arise good.

Back at the Towers. minutes became hours,
As people searched through the rubble.
Professionals, and volunteers:full of anxiety and fears
Headed back into danger and trouble.

They acted so brave, for there were people to save. 
And, as they helped one another,
There were may heroes, at that place called Ground Zero,
All working together as brothers.

From around our great land, hand joined in hand:
Numerous offers of help were made.
No one sat and just waited; people congregated
They gave; they gave; they prayed;

Now flags fly everywhere, you frequently hear prayer, 
Asking God to be our Guide.
Life has changed in many ways,over just a few days. 
There exists renewed national pride!

Though we have declared war-it's unlike any before.
For we fight a foe that's difficult to see.
So as you kneel in prayer, utilize your time there, 
To ask God to grant us victory!


      Originally written Sept 29, 2001 and posted here as we near the anniversary once 
again.  Our nation still needs the prayer!                         
                                                                    Charlie Pelota   HSLP

COMFORTING GLEN

This brief, urgent letter goes to that soldier with a heavy, lonely heart
whose eyes know no daily or nightly rest,
and his loyal soul cannot scream or protest;
he needs sleep, put his fear away and lay that helmet down for a night.



On the Fourth of July, together with his wife and children
he celebrated the heroes that made America great;
tonight, looking back he sees a sad and defeated Glen...
and without Liz and kids, his evening sky has no sunset. 



Read my letter, Glen and hold back those tears:
everybody is doing fine, but terribly are missing their tall, handsome hero;
Carol wrote a long poem about jelly beans...
the ones you ate together on the stoop with sun-tanned faces so mellow. 



Wednesday will be a very sad day looking at the summer's stars,
the same you saw shine in your native Portland...
imagining that they are fireworks evoking smiles of loved ones;
how can a righteous man not cry on bloody sand? 



Then, cry Glen and cleanse the horrible guilt off your terrified soul
for having killed the enemy who had posed a dubious threat;
comforting you with a letter is my token of appreciation for being alert,
never letting deserting thoughts overwhelm you and make you fall.

My Vow, Love Always & Forever

Love Always & Forever, 

for some that meant never, 

wondering if you'd ever stay together with this same person...

Cuz forever is a long time, and it all depends on 

whether or not your truly in love with this person 

Truly devoted to this person, willing to give so much of yourself

to another individual, is a dedication more intense and important than any other.

It's right up there in the same category as being a mother.

All I need to know is that your ready and willing to give us a shot

I'm not talking loving me for a day, a week, a month, I'm talking always and forever

A lifetime if you will, to be devoted to one another, to honor, trust one another

yes to love another as much as you love yourself.

For richer, for poorer, for better or worst health

I want to make this commitment to you more than anything else

I want you to respond by saying, "I do"

I don't want to say these words to anyone else

you're the only one I choose.

I'm making this pledge to honor, respect & cherish you and only you

As we hold hands, look into each others eyes and say our 'I do's'

Were making the promise to one another, saying...

"Always & Forever, I Will Love You"

Polar Souls

From the moment I first met you,
That fateful meet between the trees,
It was lightning in a bottle,
I knew one day you'd be my queen,

I see my souls reflection,
When I gaze upon your eyes,
You are the yin unto my yang,
Is what I now have realized,

You're the inspiration that I seek,
At your core the lotus flower,
You're the light I strive to see,
When I'm within my darkest hour,

Is it just love or is this lust,
Or are we justly lost in love?
You're my polar earth angel,
sent down from heaven up above.

No Turning Back

I guess I may have waited this long,
Just to make sure that we endure,
The length of time you thought was  too long,
And all the reasons to be so sure...
Some lose friendship long before trust, 
Until what we feel may abate,
In relationships that grow into must,
Instead of compromising debate...
Turning wishes into demands,
As gestures become expected,
Holding less of each others hands,
While you slowly lose what connected...
But I gave time what we needed to find,
Which has made us much more mature,
And more inclined to recognize signs,
So that we could find any cure...
Now that we have been thru it all,
I believe that whats left intact,
Is minus what has made others fall,
I could never conceive turning back...

Life is such a Journey It's Truly a quest So many years can pass and we still wonder where we are Maybe there's an answer Maybe There's only a Question We're towards the end But we still Do Not Know So who am I? Will I ever know? I'm sure there's an answer Not just a question But how do I know That it's the truth? As an Angel Sang to Me I Ignored her Maybe what She Said Was The Answer that allowed The Answer Maybe when She Said "Just Search Stay True When it is Time to Anew And Something Rises Ask The Heart That Is where I Breathe"

Forever-Part 3

We get off the plane and smell the lovely air. Hawaii. One of the most beautiful places. I look at you and smile. "This place is beautiful," I say, spinning around. "Yes, it is," you say and pull me close. "I love you," I say. I love you too," you say and kiss me. Hand in hand we walk into the setting sun.

The sun's poking through the shades in our room. "Good morning beautiful," you say when I open my eyes. "Good morning," I say and smile. "I've got a surprise for you," you say and smile. I look at you questionably. "Just get dressed and I'll show you." "Okay."

You take my hand and lead me down to the beach. "I heard you've always wanted to do this," you say and smile. You point to two goals. My face lights up. "Sand soccer," I say happily and look at you. You kiss me and smile, "I figured you'd like it." We walk down to the two goals and we'r e put on a team. We play for hours and hours.

When the game is over, we sit on the sand by the shore. "That was fun," I say and look at you. "Yeah, it was," you say and lean in and kiss me. "I love you," I say as you warp your arms around me. "I love you too," you say and smile. We watch the sun set on the beautiful sea before we head back to our room.

The next day we surf. We surf for hours. "This is great baby," you say as we sit on our boards. "Yeah," I say and smle, "you must really like doing this," I say and brush a srand of hair from your face. "Yes," you say and you lean in and kiss me.

RELUCTANCE TO SOME MEAL

Before the Deluge,
God had forbidden
His chosen people 
to eat animal flesh...
it was after the Big Flood
that He ordered Noah
and his family to eat it.
Why be reluctant to eat pork
on New Year's Day...
is it dirty and disgusting?
But isn't poultry or beef
any cleaner that pork is?
Let me have this tasty meal,
and ridicule those who won't:
hypocrites, I say shamelessly....
don't call me a guiltless pagan, 
I read from the Holy Scriptures
as God spoke so adamantly.
Let me have sour kraut
and black eyed peas along 
with red wine and crunchy bread:
to celebrate what the Lord created
and the Earth abundantly gives!

"THE ALMOND'S ANNIVERSARY OF 50 YEARS!!!"

The Almond's anniversary of 50 years
You truly deserve alot of cheers
You're very special and so dear
So these words that come from my heart are very sincere
As you celebrate 50 years of pure and genuine love
You're really angels sent from above
What you both constantly share
There's nothing that can compare
Your bond is so unique and rare
You both over came the storms and the rain
You so often shared each others pain
Love,care,and concern for everyone you share
So constantly showing others how much you care
I wish you both the best and many more
And Jesus continues to bless you as he done so many times before.

Forever-Part 4

We get off the plane, back in LA. We drop our stuff off at home and go out for the day.

 

You wait outside the bathroom door. "Baby," I say. You stop breathing. "What is it?" I slowly open the door. "Yes." I say and smile. "Yes!" you scream and pick me up. You spin me around and kiss me.

9 months later I step out of the car. 3 of us this time. Isavella. Our first daughter. "She looks just likeher mom," you say and smile. "With her daddy's eyes," I say and look at you. "I love you," you say. "I love you too," I say and gently kiss me.

 

We're older now we've made it a long way. We sit on the deck and watch the sun set. "All or nothing," I say and hold your hand. "All or nothing," you say and lead me down to the sand. "30 years is a long time," you say to me and pull me close. " So is forever," I say. You hit play and Amazed comes on. "We'll make it that far, I swer," you say as we start to dance. We look at Isabella playing in the sand. "I know baby," I say and smile.
 

We'll last forever. Nothing will break us. We'll always be together.



Together forever.

The Moon

                  The Moon 

 When I look up to the face on the moon, I wonder and hope your thinking of me too. 
I miss you with all my heart. 
I hope you miss me too. 
Nathaniel means your a gift from god, well in my heart your a gift from the moon. 
Shining down upon my night to light it up when it's black. 
Beaming down to the ground as i stand there in the dewy field. 
You never steer my wrong, you never take me to a wrong path, and your sweet love takes me through all that is thrown at me. 
The moon is what I stair at every night. 
Thinking and hoping you will still shine your light on me. 
Nathaniel I love you and someday hope to do half of what you've done for me.

On your birthday

Many forms of remembering
play some important roles.
in a relationship, a great deal of meaning
as an inner experience, joy.

Across the length of time
a link in memories
abound tales of kindness,
sincerity and reconciliation.

To identify some common feelings
there's gratitude . . .
something visible to stand on
as an experience worth sharing.

Laden with good memories
life goes on . . .
through thick and thin,
still I'm thankful
with opportunities at hand
bring significance in the long run.

Along with tests at the crossroads
God provides me with strength
to enable me to hug you,
wear a smile and eventually
accost you, "Happy Birthday."

"20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY A VERY SPECIAL CELEBRATION!!!"

20 year anniversary a very special celebration
Is the reason for this dedication
And I truly hope you have many more 
By showing everyone what you have in store
With each one being better than before
Alot of years together still going strong
You all have enough faith to know where you belong
And there's something so unique in your every song
Yes it's something so special about today
And for all your hard work no-one can ever repay
After all this time you're still here to stay.

Arranged Marriage

The family was seeking my acceptance.
Dad told me, his family is very nice,
And he is reserved kind of person,
I was also delighted, he was quite smart.

The day came, he booked a carriage,
To pick me as a bride from the Church,
We had a round in the town and went off,
To attend a celebration, where it was arranged.

My dad presented me a brand new car as a gift,
After finishing the party, we had a honeymoon booked,
We were very happy for this arranged marriage,
My dreams came to touch my sleepy beauty.
I have seen a strange and burning body,
Flames were exciting me and my feelings,
Realised a peace song that was delivering,
A cool and I were nearly nearly exhausted.

When he came, he was a little drunk, 
When he touched my body I melted as ice,
I thought, he will enjoy me whole night a sip,
I was strange as I was lying in a pool.

Memorial Day

Gorgeous day!  Wrapped with warm weather,
quietude in surroundings early this morning;
roads are clear; driving isn’t a problem at all,
there’s no rush and one freely takes his time.

Invitations from friends and other relations
a cookout in the yard or dining in a restaurant;
a common tradition to American people,
a wonderful experience, a day to remember.

Our major print, news and TV networks,
show varied events, places, and peoples;
with distinctive features of the celebration
that trace back history and meaning to recall.

As singularly punctuated with solemnity
those veterans in the army and other dignitaries,
along with the president of this beautiful country,
America: the land of free, unity and diversity.

Names engraved in the annals of history
are those heroes who served in this country,
they offered their lives for love and loyalty,
indisputably, heroic giants of the century.

Across the years, memories of the past
continue to serve as a treasure trove,
a wellspring of thought and inspiration;
indeed, a living legacy worthy of imitation.

Kudos and more power to these people
though they’re all gone into the silent land
their spirit, mem’ry and legacy to everyone
unites the whole nation for love and remembrance.

Handwritten Vows

He came home from work tonight and held me tight He had been debating about us today with all of his might Obviously he found more reasons than one To have me continue lighting our path as his sun When I try to figure out his reasons why he loves me so He finds his shy reasons to never let me know! But here I sit and write this story~poem to you Men like him so real and so true are very few Some things I figure it's best not to be told For him and him only, my life has been sold From this day forward I choose to be by his side Life isn't easy ~ in fact ~ it's a tough ride But with someone special life is so easy to live With my baby Ricky, he just gives and gives We decided to straighten our lives for each other Never again will my heart belong to another I know I am not perfect, baby, but neither are you We've been through much worse ~ what we have is true I do believe we have been through much worse before We have both had our hearts ripped out and tore But what we have is strong ~ just so you know We are now hitting our highs and have passed our low I have decided it is you who I want to spend my life And I want you to be my husband, and me to your wife Congratulations you have captured all of my love You are my shining angel sent to me from above

it creeps in

the feeling that 
you know
you
have to let go of 
nonsense
or die
because
everyone knows when they're
maxed out
and they just can't go on
with the b.s.
it's all organ shots at this point
move to safe grounds 
and make due with the cavemen
hoping
they don't know about booze yet
but when they do
... oh ... all hell breaks loose
@ least it's a little while
until the next jump
the next desertion
on plans for nothing
on your menu of humans
waiting for your
maxed out
presence
whilst having no shoes
and, possibly, no
soul

you know how people are and how things go in life you need to prepare and be 
stern and happy through out life and just know things that you need to know and 
do something about them.....sometimes god says things to you that go right to 
the core of your heart and you are one again with yourself.

To Ray And Chris

You've waited your whole lifetime
for this moment to arrive
and now that you have become one,
you feel you've come alive.

When love is right, you know it.
You see it in their eyes.
You feel it in the slightest touch.
You hear it in their sighs.

Forever from this moment
you'll never feel alone.
Your best friend will be by your side.
Your house is now a home.

I am so happy for you.
I wish you love and peace.
No matter what God throws your way,
your love will just increase.

I pray your love grows stronger
throughout your new found life.
You finally found your soul mate
and you now call her your wife.

Path Way

When you say your alright, I'll be there to hold onto the words you speek

Only hoping for a moment that its not a token of an apology

No more can we aford to struggle over the little things 

That seem so trivial in the conseguences in our everyday lives

For now we must indure the distant long road ahead

hoping that our love never could stray as we travel on the well beaten path

Sharing and hoping with every day cooupings tht come our way

Nothing can compare to our love and no one has the power to betray the sacred 
vow 

That you and I once shared on our most glories day of days

Could we be any more complete though we may be tired

We must rest our tattered feet, and when little things do crop up every now and 
then

May we have the understandance that frustrations do boil within

And that our path has never lost its view, just the horizon is in lines view

As we must stop every now and then, to pick our selves up 

And start on our jorney again, never to lose the path that we so desperately walk

To the horizon and far beyond, till we reach the Heavens and see God

Only then will we relize in what we have done

Walked a path of Uncondisional Love

Imagine This

At the break of dawn
is that midnite loving
I give to my sweet lady
Embracing her with my warmth touch
Caressing every bumps and curves with my tender kiss
We gazed into each other eyes building that attraction that soon will bust
Hormones jumping beyond our control
She takes my hands and guides me to her favorite spot
I slowly remove my hands and reminded her that`s not the way the game starts 
She plea and beg me to give her that sexual healing
I finally agree with her and took her to that next dimension
Foreplay, roleplay, we play together
Ecstasy, fantasies, heavenly she`s turned on by me
She ask me for that relaxation that made her so tense
So I lick her up till I put her mind at rest
I lay next toher watch her as she lay fast asleep
Admiring the beautiful angel that God sent to me.

An Anniversary Prayer

As you reflect back on your life together
On your anniversary
Recall the vows that you took
As you stood face to face
Pledging your love for each other

You solemnly promised before God and man
To forsake all others both in thought and in deed
And furthermore, you expressed your love for each other
Repeating these words one after the other--
To have and to hold from this day forward--
For better or for worse--For richer or for poorer--
In sickness and in health...'Til death do us part--
You both promised sincerely from your hearts...

So since right from the start
You promised to no longer be two--but one
Then The Son will be your guide
As you walk through life together--forever--side by side
May you have many more years before you


                                          In Jesus' Name
                                               Amen

Far Away..

Far Away.. 

Are you far away?
Please come back soon and stay..

Are you thinking about me to?
As much as I am thinking about you?

The time we spent together, how can you forget?
Will you gamble with fate and win the bet?

Escaping from reality is this love real?
Or is it what I think I feel.

Your smile, your eyes and your touch..
How can I forget that much..?

I long to see you and you hold me close..
Your the one I miss the most...

I desire

I desire the cloths I wear.
Like a shirt, a tee, a skirt, a pant
A crop an flare. Man with pretty hair.

I desire,
Shirt that flirt.
And pants that tight but doesn’t hurt.
Desert tones that I desire.

Wraps that shape.
Man like super hero in his cape.
	Flying home to be rescue and never EX-scape.
But keep their love in shape.
I desire a man who never comes home late.
 	I desire a man who white, brown, or black
	To make love to my mind, he might be tall he might be fine.
	But he always be mine.
	Always give me sweet kisses.
	Give me sweet roses. For valentine. 
	He always made me shine.

	Boy, people don’t know how much I desire this man.
Drive up the wall, I can dream easily I can’t really explain.
 	He must be hard to fine, that I can’t complain.

Eternal Love

Deep in my heart there is a burning flame called the eternal love. It burns for you 
and tells me our love is true. This burning flame keeps getting hotter and hotter. 
Burns higher and higher. The flame is a voice telling me to say I love you. Telling 
me to kiss you, hold you, and touch your soft skin. And not to let anyone else in. 
My heart beats with power. Telling me never let go. Telling me our love is real. 
Letting me know this is the last deck of cards I will ever deal. With the bond we 
share. Nothing can get in our way, not even air. The eternal love lies in my heart. 
Telling me never part. CZ your love comes from the heart.
