Lest We Forget

In churned up soil the poppy rose 
On top of death, still steadily grows 
And in our minds we see the crosses 
That lie in rows and count our losses 

Blood that drips from tiniest bloom 
Beloved children, lost from the womb 
Their essence blown upon the earth 
For infinity, will show their worth 

And so they marched by decree 
A war they fought, so we could be free 
The poppy, how we remember them now 
So in silence we do reverently bow 

One single day, just once every year
To remember all the horror and fear 
To give thanks and praise, to those in need 
Who saved us through unselfish deed 

For so young when they said goodbye 
With no idea that so many would die 
In Flanders Fields where poppies grow 
Innocence, now lays buried in each row 

For those that did return safely home 
Their spirit lost and so had flown
To fly away among the peaceful skies 
With friends and larks with carefree eyes

In the thunder hear the roar of guns
Calling to all our native sons
Arise, arise, from sleep once more
For once again, there will be war

In Flanders Fields, the poppies grow 
They cover our loved ones, buried below 
Like a blanket, they protect all within 
From a world that is ravished by sin 

More souls will join them as the years go by 
More wars will be fought, as the lark does cry 
More fields will be filled, with our dead 
And poppies will mark their graves in red

"Lest we forget and more shall die"
"In Flanders Fields our loved ones lie"

You Are My All

When on life’s seas I’m tempest tossed,
And my hopeful smile is all but lost,
When I need to survive at any cost,
You are my anchor.


My life is filled with simple pleasures,
My loved ones’ smiles I count as treasures,
When kisses are how life is measured,
You are the standard.


As time soars on and birthdays fly,
My hair is graying,  I don’t care why,
My mind is sharp, but not my eyes,
You are my youth.


Love is patient, love is kind,
And to the lucky, love is blind,
But when it comes to love that binds,
You are my love.

Found Love

When first I came to know this world, my eyes were young and hurt,
And O're the years I came to know, the expression in my heart,
I fought my way through love and pain, through heart break, and much worse,
Until one day I found a man, who could love me at my best and worst,
He would drive me to the point of insane, yet bring me back to laughing tears,
He could make my eyes weep in shame, yet hold me close and i would heal,
18 years, it took to know that I would never leave his side,
For when I was born I knew this man; Inside my soul, the knowledge survived,
I found him after 16 years, And knew I loved when i reached 17,
Now the age of womanhood is apon me, and if asked Ill respond,
it is his wife I shall gladly be,
Sweet eyes so young, but aged too,
my love today, I explain to you.

Pledge of love and loyalty

This pledge that l,Ntando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.

for dear life…and love!
I shall stand by and with you in all the
situations of our life.

and decisions that we make as
husband and wife.
As head of the family I shall do nothing

This pledge that l, Nothando, make today serves

honouring, supportive and loving wife
for all the years l shall live with you.

that you deserve as my husband.

of the king of my heart.
On my mind it is always fresh
that I am the flesh of your flesh.
Green or grown

I am the bone of your bone.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
elevates me into a kingdom of wifehood.
I shall endevour to put my family first
with all the rights, obligations
and privileges that come with wifehood.
I shall endevour to wipe off and ward off
loneliness and lostness from our relationship,
seeking nothing but your companionship;
banking on your stewardship,
sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

Life

Life is a many things
Sometimes life is a dark tunnel,
But every tunnel has a light at the end
I will be your lantern to guide the way
Cling to me and I will keep you from the darkness
Life is a giant battle.
I will be your shield and spear 
Your spear to pierce through the horrible people
Who want to harm you, 
Your shield to protect you
From the battles you cannot win your self 
life is many things my dear 
But I am here,
For you to use, to cherish, and love.
Life is many things my dear. 
But you are not alone.
I am here.

The Rhythm of One

Love is not love if only in books and songs
In romantic movies and poems it belongs
It is life itself; an experience we share
A personal history of concern, commitment and care

Love is a voice that will soothe and caress
A heart that is uneasy, a mind in distress
It is a look that says, "I'm here, I know life isn't fair.
 Pour out your troubles, I'll listen, I'll always be there."

Love is a smile, on both the lips and the eye
A suggestive twinkle and a warm good-bye
It is a message that needs no gesture or voice
Yet, in that twinkle it says, "In your company, I rejoice."

Love is the soft touch of one hand in the other
The gentle massage of one heart by another
That occurs when those fingers do gently squeeze
And say, "As long as we are together, life will be a breeze."

Love is not love if only in an expensive jewel or gift
Can it offer us comforts, our flagging spirits lift
Love is life itself, the acts that are done
When two hearts celebrate with the rhythm of one.

....Splattered....

"Casting down imaginations...." ~ II Cor. Ch. 10 ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Oh, how you splinter me....

Looking through your looking glass

Portraits of your present and, images of your past!?

You say you see; you say you know; you say you do

But really, you don't....

You sprinkle your sugar; you sputter your spatter

For all of those as yourself, to whom

It doesn't even matter?!

Wrapped in your paper, and wrapped in your chatter....

These monuments and pyramids, of yourself

Absorbing, "Splatter"

Your purposeless and pointless, pitter patter!?

Your lines they are divine; your words, they are immense

Yet unto me, they do all seem, void, and teetering

Upon the pretense....

Standing in front of you now; staring into your eyes

You tell me that you do, but, I do wonder why?!

Peering through your window; looking through your glass

Your visions for tomorrow; should your yesterdays

They pass....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Splattered!?






Note: Smile ~ This is a repo aimed at no one in particular....
"Dare You to Move, by Switchfoot; 'Love,' Always," John!:) ~

My Last Wish

If only I can ask the world
To gather all the love
Each person has.

If only I can feel the love
Free of inhibitions in some extent 
And share it all.

If only I can be 
With the love of yours
So that I can have my last wish.

If you permits me to  live and die 
Unconditionally with and without you
Oneness reflected indeed.

Anniversary

Candlelit dinner for two, soft music, bubbly champagne
Hard to believe it's been over a decade since I said, "I do."
Here I am still waiting, eating cold dinner yet again.

Myth Uncovered

To love another more than life itself...

Is sweet bereavement...Sealed within
loves kiss...

...A love so deep...fathomed in oceans...
only truth can find...

A myth uncovered - discovered over time...

...To relish in this beauty...way beyond compare...

...To look into the eyes of an angel...
...Mornings first light...

...We feel with hearts despair...

...For we nurture this...

...This love we believe has found its way here...

...We cherish everyday...
...this love beyond compare...

...Immortal wish bestow...

....For we love in tomorrows tomorrow...

...This life this love we celebrate...

these two souls love has found...

...this life - this love...

...this love itself creates...

Did I Remember To Tell You Daddy

Almost three years now Daddy
since you were taken away
I thank God you no longer suffer
but I had so much more to say

But you and I were always very close
and I know that we still are
So be free to enjoy family and friends
I know you'll never be far

Oh but  Daddy
Did I remember to thank you 
for coming to stay with the kids and I 
At times you thought you were a burden
but if anyone was it was I

And I want to tell you too Daddy
that you would be so proud of them all
Brandon's now a sergeant with a son on the way
Cam Jeremy is due early fall

And your little Sarah Daddy
you would be so very proud
She's a tiny little thing, still a great mom
and has the best boys in any crowd

And I'm sure you've been watching Curtis
So you know he's just like you
And he is living up to the promise he made
Yes Daddy I'm very proud too

Oh and one more thing 
before I lay down to rest
Did I remember to tell you and the world
that
 My Daddy's the best

Loving you and missing you always
Your baby girl

First Love

We treat it like a marble 

in our pocket for a while 

we win it 

we lose it 

but no matter where it goes 

it always holds 

the warmth of our hands

' Rain, Fire, Ice and Breeze '

I Watched A Man, Named, ‘ Rain ‘
Pounding Across The Plains
Running with Cascading Joy
Like a Wet, Happy, Little Boy …

I Found A Man, Named, ‘ Fire ‘
Blaze in Life, A Lightning Desire
His Bold Passion – Consuming Power
Sent Smoke Signals, to My Tower

I Observed A Man, Named, ‘ Ice ‘
Tho’ Frost-Natured, He Did Entice
‘ … Come Hold Me, if You Dare …
And Find Out, if Cold-Can-Care …’

… I Beheld A Man, Named, ‘ Breeze ‘
And Begged Him, ‘Touch Me Please …
Gentle, like a Lover’s Kiss
Whisper to Me, Things I Wished…’

… and Sitting Content, on This Hillside
Listen Now… as I Confide …
‘ Rain and Fire … Ice and Breeze ’
Don’t You Know … You Are All Of These . . .

' The Pearl Ensemble ... '

… I Awoke to  A Classical, Pearl Ensemble
A String Quartet’ Upon My Pillow
Your Bass, Echoed – like an Ocean-Rumble
‘… I Love You …’ Plucked the Polished Mellow-Cello’

and the Flawless Violins and The Viola – Flow
Rushed to my Wavy Shore – Aglow
Displayed and Spilled, like a Whirlpool- Vibrato …
… Your Cultured Concert, left me … Staccato’

… I Awoke to A Classical, Pearl Ensemble
A String Quartet’ Upon My Pillow
and as Each Iridescent Drop, Solo-Sheen-Tumbled
… My Own Heartstrings, did Crescendo... Maestro

To My Husband

You've always been there for me
Right from the start.
Everything you do
Comes straight from the heart.

When I think of you 
My heart fills with love.
And this feeling my dear
Is what life is made of.

You've given me passion, love,
And total bliss.
And all it took
Was just one kiss.

I knew from the moment 
I first lay eyes on you
That a life without you in it 
Would just never do.

I am honored that you chose me
To be your wedded wife,
And by your side I'll stay 
For the rest of my life.

  I Love You

To late not to fall

Laying here in bed at night
Pulling the covers around me so tight
Watching the candlelight fire dancing
Playing wildly on my ceiling
Inching down my walls
And I think it's about time to give it my all

It's too late not to fall
You've pulled me in, heart and all
Maybe it's the wrong thing to do
Wanting to spend my life with you
May be the wrong move to make, the wrong shots to call
But now it's too late not to fall

I quietly listen to the sound of my breathing
The love struck pound of my heart beating
Like a soft secret whispering 
Of mysteries between you and me

No more than this sounds through the night
But in the void of the dark there is still a light
And your love feels me with a soothing lullaby
A hypmotizing song of you and me
Engulfs me in a suductive love sea

While lying here with this all surrounding me
Past hurts I just can't remember to see
I only let go and dream
Of your promises of good things yet to come
and I anxiously wait for each and every one

It's too late not to fall
You've pulled me in, heart and all
Maybe it's the wrong thing to do
Wanting to spend my life with you
May be the wrong move to make, the wrong shots to call
But now it's too late not to fall.....

Heres Looking At You Kid

Dear brother you were only 22
when the good Lord came calling for you

Water had consumed your last breath
Coroners said was a flashback from heroin and meth

I had always looked up to you
but your verbal abuse made me and the others feel blue

black hair  hazel eyes man you look so like Elvis 
imitating shaking your hips and pelvis

blisters and sores on  your young pale face
oh boy how you had fallen from Gods grace

you had a little girl right after you died
Mom always stood by her and your girlfriend's side

first Grandpa then you Dad  Mom and brother Bob
for my life now feels like I've been robbed

missed over 30 yrs of wishing you  birthday greetings
now at the dinner table there is limited seating

but every year when your birthday comes and passes
I will be there to pick your grave site overgrown grasses

I wonder what you would look like today
or even if your hair would be full of grey

I have forgiven for all you had done to me
for I hold no regrets so your soul can be free

heres wishing you another birthday greeting
as I lay this card and rose at your grave site's seating

Please give Grandpa Dad Mom and brother Bob my love
for someday I will reunited with all of you above

For now I have my own little girl
for she is my own everyday  world

I promise to tell her all about you
and how God will turn you into someone pure and new

Rest in peace my loving dear brother
heres another birthday wish I send in passion smothers 






In Loving Memory Of
My Brother Gary

The Definition Of A Real Woman

(W)- A real woman knows that the wages of sin is death so she is not concerned about the wages of a real man, because money comes and goes like day and night; but true love comes just every blue moon. A real woman isn't loud and doesn't have to be the center of attention. Money is a gold-diggers virtue, while patience is a real woman’s virtue. A real woman is always wary of the image she displays to the world because she knows her children are watching her every move. A real woman’s wisdom comes from the teachings of her elders and the experiences and hardships life brings. A real woman is the wings that help a broken man learn to fly again. When you become the object of a real woman’s affection, winning is the only option.

(O)- A real woman’s main obligation is to better herself, before she attempts to become someone’s better half. A real woman is very obliged with all that God has blessed her with. When a man takes a real woman for granted, she makes up her mind to put him away into oblivion. A real woman is use to jumping hurdles because overcoming obstacles in life keeps her on the right track. A real woman doesn't spend her time worrying if failure is around the corner, because she occupies her freedom chasing her dreams in her most comfortable running shoes. A real woman is a hopeless romantic ready to be wooed with an odyssey of love with a real man by her side.

(M)- A real woman’s presence is magnanimous and captures attention because of the poised and elegant stature of her classy nature. A real woman is like the magnet of ecstasy. All women don't attend college or hold prestigious employment, but for many being the Valedictorian of mothers everywhere is the major of their lives. A real woman respects the art of marriage and believes in monogamy. A real woman’s life is the motion picture of sophistication. The mythology of a woman began within a man’s ribs and ends in the beat of his heart.

(A)- A real woman sticks to her man like glue and never abandons his side. A real woman has the ability to do anything a man can. A real woman has the power to fill the abyss of a man’s pains with joy. A real woman prays with her other half because faith is the key of remaining on one accord. A real woman will amaze you with the way she adapts to changes in her ambiance. A real woman is the architect of her own destiny.

(N) A real woman needs a man to understand and love her for everything she is and for everything she is not because a good support system is a leading factor in longevity within relationships. A real woman is the nexus between love and happiness. When you converse with a real woman you will realize that she is nimble with her every response. No man can ignore the nymph of a real woman, because it is in her D.N.A to be notable.

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.

Grandfather

Here lies the best Grandfather,
One who was very considerate.
Remembering him as a child,
I would sit on his lap.
He was a rare person indeed.
He was a colonel in the Army.
Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.

A Symbol Of Our Love

I long to see this love we have blossom daily with each passing day 
The beauty of which we can't see but we can feel it all the same
I love it when the sun comes up and the birds sing sweetly too
This rose will be on our bench every day of the year I spend with you.

This bench of love is reserved for us for many years to come
Sitting here now I say to you that I want you for the rest of our lives
The rose is a symbol of all that is pure, our trust, our hope and love
Two hearts shall not be broken when they've been blessed by God above.

I promise you that each year will be better than the one before 
A  rose I’ll leave on this bench as each year we’re married passes by
I’m always going to be here for you my darling you’re the one I adore 
This rose represents the longing  in my heart, I want you forevermore.

To show just how much I care I will plant a rose bush here just for you
When I look at our little bench each year and think of how it all began    
I'll remember with pride, that eve I proposed and you said “I will marry you”
As I slipped on the ring, you'd tears in your eyes, as the moon came into view.

When times catches up, grey hair sets in, grandchildren running wild at our side
I hope you'll be by my side on our bench with our roses still growing with love 
But if you're not with me,It won't be hard to remember that night of my life
When I proposed  one beautiful eve, we married and were husband and wife.

A Woman's Worth

A Woman’s Worth
By Nate Spears


Her purpose in this world is hurting
She’s never been a designed of perfect
But she is a mom, so she’s super
She works
She cleans
Then roll up her sleeves ; and
Take care of the kids; and
The house 
Making it a home
For a beautiful family to roam
Building wonderful memories
Becoming a woman of worth
Keeping her faith through Christ
Keeping her pace through health
Keeping her sanity through managing
This is a woman’s worth 
I’m giving you


Despite of all the stress 
She receives her family with open arms
Through all the mess
She’s a fantastic mom
A wonderful woman 
Deserving a round of applause
Plus a standing ovation
For always being an American sensation
That held this continent down since day one
Since the Plymouth Rock landed on us
Thank you for her giving
Thank you for her living
Thank you for her children
This is ,
A woman’s worth.

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

Confession

Confession


A mind filled with mazes
A heart to cold it shivers at warmth.
Has seen the good
The bad of the world.
To distant from life from others
To understand another feelings,
To torn to speak more then three words.
But for you I look with kindly eyes
And a soften smile.
To you I make this confession.
I be dark but you shine a light
With a gaze.
My heart is cold and nearly brittle  away
But with one touch from you ,
Keeps it in tact with two.
Every memory of my past
Disappear when I gaze into your eyes.
I feel like our conversation could go on for hour,
Mountains  of useless words and pointless subjects.
I tell you this
This is a confession, I send to you.
Even though you left me alone,
So many years ago.
This is the love confession that was always meant for you.

One Day

As I sip on aged Cognac
swirling in circular sadness,
contained within cup made
of broken stained glass memories,
I witness.

Witnessing Cloud 9’s silhouette
surround this glued enigma.

Lionel Ritchie was the rock for this moment’s bliss.

“Truly in love,
with
you.”

Emanating across cathedral uncertainty,
breaking its glass.

This was a celebration of priceless Silver.
A currency only earned by the Philanthropists of Love.

Creating justifiable fantasies
with attainable dreams.

It was amor, maintained.

While I sip on Cognac’s remnants,
mixed with retina’s loneliness,
dripping
downwards
with smile craving soul-pack solution,
I exhale.

In “Deep Sigh” Symphony: No. 9.

With my ventricle chambers
kissing subconscious on forehead,
in preparation for dream come true.

Because one day,
that will
be
me.

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.

The Bully Part 1

The Bully

27 Years ago, you showed me the door,
Because I wouldn’t do what you wanted anymore.
That day was the worst of my life,
I wanted to die, to escape the strife.
All I needed was a simple letter,
To give me a chance to get better.
Now when I look back and see, you certainly did
 me a favour that day.
In 1986 Thursday the first of May.
From then on people listened to what I had to say,
Doctors and Nurses went out or their way,
I got the treatment I needed at last,
Bit by bit they went over the past.
One whole year is all it took,
A lot of hard work, a little luck.
To this very day I have never been back,
26 whole years and that’s a fact.
The last few years have been the best of my life,
Truly content being a Mother and Wife.
And Nanny as well,
Must not let my head swell,
A collection of poems all written by me..
My story in 7 magazines for the whole world to see.
A whole new extension to the house designed by me.
Also having to cope with the death of my mother,
Then four months later the death of my mother’s sister,
God not another.
Having my kitchen demolished completely,
did put me in a fix.
But being so well, even that couldn’t knock me for six.
So remember the next time someone begs you for a letter,
At least give THEM, the chance to get better.
For as long as I live I will never for get that terrible day,
Thursday 1986 the first of May,
The day that you showed me the door,
Just because I wouldn’t do what you wanted anymore.
They say that time heals all pain,

I’m lucky I’ve learnt to live again.

Ohhhh Rain : Shower again

A small romantic rain poem dedicated to hubby.
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

"Ohhhh Rain..Shower again!!!!! "  

Showering in the rain, 
Draining the pain!
Enflueraging the essence of arenicolous sand,
Feeling blessed porting on this beautiful greenary land! Trees were roaming 
under fiercing winds,
Thanks nature for benevolently so kind!
Sip of sizzling coffee With Caramalized sugar,
Cheers hubby to accompany me my gelling agar!
Wanna capture this Driplets of aromatic water nearby lake,
So that I can make an icy snowflake!
That's amazing, "but ohhhh God,  I wish my honey is here".

4 Jon On Our 22nd Wedding Anniversary

Your love is
quite sensational –

Your laughter tastes
    like spring-time rain

Your tears smell
    like sweet lemon flower petals

Your voice looks
    so 
    deeply 
    majestic

Your heart sounds
    like exquisite violin and harp concertos

And your eyes!

Your eyes feel
    like early autumn sunset’s amber-gold lengthening glow

Oh, my love, your love
is entirely, completely,
embracingly

Sen-sational!

Sunken Tears

                                   He stood bravely before me 
                           with a medal of honor in his right hand
                        and a bandage of agony around his left knee
                           It seemed like he had struggled to stand,
                             his crutches lay useless on the ground
                                 I found it hard to understand why,
                                 a soldier in pain didn't even frown
                                      With a voice firm but dry
                                 his words shook me like thunder
                                "You're now the man of this house"
                                 he uttered like a worn-out hunter
                            quivering up my legs like a terrified mouse
                                 Drowning my mind through cold ears

THESE ARE THE WORDS THAT HAD TO BE IN THE POEM 

Abomination scorn Affection Passion Yearning
Struggle Attempt Cherish Relationship Flame
Taste Tender Inner soul Bloom Bamboozle

HERE IS MY ON THE SPOT CREATION!..enjoy :)
I was a woman scorn 
Unknowingly  cherished a relationship
where the flame was no longer existent;
where time flew by in the distance and I missed
everything in my life I intended 
because I was accepting a me that depended
on him
I made an attempt to bamboozle the truth
and convince myself that he wasn’t screwing Kim
Ultimately I faked passion and lustfully feigned for affection
since I’d been betrayed
So, I got down on my knees and  I prayed 
I began yearning for knowledge of my Inner soul
I began to taste freedom and feel whole
The healing began and my consciousness rose - fresh bloom
It was no longer a struggle to end an abomination that would 
prove to be a path of doom

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Unknown

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

I Have Been More Than Once, Never More Or Less Than Me -


Bricks from blood, bricks from the flood of Earth's mud,
bricks of clay, turf bricks, stone bricks, flesh bricks,
all shaped, treated and wrought in the furnace of Will,

texture of brick varies by material & method like animal behavior
projected to achieve certain results,
sometimes bricks are smooth or polished
or rough & pocked,
I have cracked bricks, large and small ones, 
red & brown, white, black & beige ones,
some keep strong for eons,
some flake or crumble from weathering or ineptitude
some bricks I replace, some I repair or salvage
as birds reconstruct nests
ravaged by the tumult of atmosphere,

these bricks have personality, vitality, loyalty,
my bricks do not always withstand Life's bombardments
but they do serve their purposes,
I will survive where Jerhico, Constantinople, Berlin & Hiroshima ashed,
hut & hovel I have been,
pyramid & palace too,
a bakery, butcher's shop, and Baron's bastion,
a bunker and a boarding school,
always it is me,
a shelter of creativity -

It's My Birthday, It is Your Birthday

It’s My Birthday

It’s my birthday…  I look out the window there is no one for me owe so, owe so lonely poor me . 

It’s my  birthday…  you surprise me, with a Barber-Q grill  with a cooler that chills with a grin we show white grills.

Happy Birthday… it’s my Birthday I am still waiting,  it   is almost the end of my the day, just waiting on you to wish me a happy birthday which, well make my day. 

It’s my birthday…you do not remember that day, can we go out for we can remember that day?

It’s my birthday… I can share it or alone, some share it with a twin, or with a friend and the ones who stay to the ends like a good friend.

It my birthday…  its looks like another day to me I just need someone or something to comfort with me a room full of women and with hand full men, a juice in cup, juice in glass, with a sweet lady and grill on cut grass that may make every day feel like my birthday, with a touch of class. 
 
It’s your birthday… it’s your birthday you should all-ways win on your birthday, if do not have a mate you sneak and go on second party date form those who may player hate.  
  
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!  it comes and go, I see you come through, looking out my window with a hand full company that is what a party really should need, yes it’s sweet, sweet with music and sweet with treats or  it must be the money, or food, or brinks, or just me.

Space-Love

Let's escape to space
& Leave the human race 

Space-love a new awesomeness
Forget the life & the gloominess

Kiss me, because I care
Even thought the life is unfair

I want to be a space-lover
Love you now, tomorrow & forever

Lest Live in a house made of stars
& drive spaceship instead of cars 

We feel the space-love in moon
I'll be yours, you'll be mine so soon

Screw the world, we found happiness.

Happy Birthday

We were on the road
the road that ended somewhere
something flew right into my eyes
I closed my eyes for a while
but then you were gone
we could have made it
to the end where our dreams
were waiting for us,
but then they were shattered into pieces
somehow you changed,
those pieces were not small enough for you
then you broke them into even smaller pieces
and still all those broken pieces
if it were to be re arranged would
have your name on it
we had our share of fun, laughter
and great memories, that will
walk with me to my deathbed
but now its too late to be reminded it
everyday,
your face with a stranger
everyday on the electronic screen
I'm still the same way you left me some
four years ago,
and you're not the same person that you were
things have changed,
they've been rearranged
nothing looks familiar anymore
specially you
but I still cannot forget those times
and even though I hate you for what you did
how could I forget this day
even if those memories in your head
lay there alone to rust
Happy Birthday to you, old friend
and Happy birthday to us!

THE FULL MOON BLOOMS

Tonight, the full moon blooms
And foils the looming gloom.
The remnant doom from noon
Has lost it's bullish tune.
And embraces dusk's eerie cool.


The village square it illuminates
Arena of moonlight tales of late
The little ones gather and wait
While the elderly engage in debates
And the goats noisily ruminates


The bright night, lights sparks
Of bliss and joy in trees' barks
The tall iroko whistle in parks
Where young lovers end their tracks
And skimpy skirts lose their tacks
 
 
The son of perdition frets unsure
The thief in the night fears exposure
The pirate sailor steers from ashore
The night fisherman denied action
For the kind light bathes the ocean


Tonight, the full moon beams proud
As the town crier makes his round
Belting forth a piercing sound.
While the town's chorus echoes loud
The stage is set for the yearning crowd

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.

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

You have the power
over my love
to make my day rain or shine
it all began the day you asked me
"to be mine" and I wrote my name
in blood, on your hearts
dotted line
the power of my love
to fuel what feeds within me
pounce on me as a tiger
humble me as a mouse
your strength envelopes me
as if standing in an unbreakable
glass house
you have the power
over my stare, as you glare
into my inner spirits soul
those who dare to try to divide
I heed them to beware
the power you have over my love
leaves me content, without a care
floating together, we share, in
true loves enchanting bliss
what started years ago, with a friendly
hug, is reincarnated within every

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...

Tea Time

Love in your bones, perfection, divine, a wandering heart pure is thine?
A moment in time, immaculate, sensual, alive, we align.
A mass of vibrating energy combines.
Lost here, safe there, warm dear?
Our love melts crippling fear.
There is no divide. No moon owns this colorful tide.
So now we jump! 
Inside my manic depressive ride.
Will I? can I? Abide? to society now, I have a bride?
Shirtless, shoeless, beard is long, happy am I.
Fear not, even King Kong.
Wife at home, smoking tea and high.
Jesus Christ! I sigh. sigh. sigh..
You pinned my soul, my thoughts and I..... 
Dreamed to die.
My, my, my.
Your cold hard shell.
I loved you then and wished you well.
A living breathing tree did fell.
Is it cold in this, your damp black cell?
Silence.....
Now. 
For this happy fat sow.
Expectations melted, I chose, I allow.
By camp fire I love. I warm, with stars above.
Tea in hand, lying back, to know someday I will love.
I toke on tea, enjoying my smoke. I love it here, so real. 
Remote.
For me, for me, I toast, I joke, this bloke owns nothing.
Sorry. I lied. Frothing. I do own something this lovely green smoke.
You strive for things, material and plastic, a waste of energy, I think, a joke.
Funny you see? means nothing to me, like you I wrote.
Happiness is. So very near, its here, shockingly clear.
Your mind, your head, to freely choose.
Before your old and dead, dead, dead.

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!

Once around the sun anniversary

“I love you,”
We said it a year of times
As love is aged
The more it’s prime

Every last one means more
Than the first time said
Our love, we grew to adore
As our hearts stay red

Journey around the sun
We make mistakes, and we learn and take
In for the better, and improve for the best
And always enjoy the life we make

I hug, you hug
I kiss, you kiss
I love, you love
With bliss that can be miss

Life is filled with burdens
And incomprehensible fun
We learned a lot about life together
Once around the sun

You do not expect me I am going to describe the stands
Or the moon that is reflected on the river's water
Or the ghostly tribes running along Winnibigoshishi Lake,
Up to the Shakopee and down to the Sioux City,
But the holdings and the last fragrances
Thatt have been grown along my Mississippi Nights.

Since my childhood, no shadows, no scarlet
Has been broken, and back I go:
I was five years old, teeny and dark, so beautiful around my mother's arms,
All proud and bough, and I sung all summer
As I was watching my Mississippi Nights.

Long tales as they had been told through the stripped dance 
And drowsy learning, yet it already has been  told by wrinkled faces,
And by those toothless mouths, that arisen sun has gone,
In such fashion of pain and smoke,
But no one could tell me after the long ceremony
How beautiful and still my Mississippi Nights.

From the South to the North; from Granite Falls to
Prairies Island, I knew every stone and leaf, the flavor
Of the smokes and shine, the cute young Indian girls
Who were best known, that by June 
I fell and hit -- even though I was skinny and dumb --
Every girl in delight but there was nothing like than my Mississippi Nights.

As a man now so unique and coward!
From whom I have got no Indian Blood Left,
Princely I bent. Not to risen against the Great Spirit
Even perhaps by pain and love I should say
But I was still looking at myself through my Mississippi Nights.

Graceful and healthful to the tradition I call you too my strong boy.
Along with my Indian woman, now fifty-two, and caring spring she has before;,
Through the lower Sioux, and the higher St. Cloud and beyond,
And somewhat south and north, I must demand
To myself to see once more my Mississippi Nights.

The Fourth Of July: A Lie 'or The Star Spangled Banner

We clad ourselves in colors as we march,
saluting independence through a foggy dream;
gazing at the night alight with flashes,
sparkles,
and firefly screams.

Rockets made in China, cascade/
to the backdrop of the Star Spangled Banner;
a flutter to the wind blown flags made in Brazil
and "I Love America Pins" upon our lapel;
(made in Mexico).

We stand on oceanfront (it’s owned by France)
gazing ‘pon the open sea,
the port is owned by Saudis/
but at least we stand here free.

Our hands steadfast upon our chest,
saluting whichever freedoms still remain,
those freedoms, their going fast;
and they’ll disappear one day.

We gaze into the abyss of night,
the twinkling tears that kiss our cheek,
immersing ourselves in awe of moment,
before it fades our dreams to sleep.

We stand enamored with this land,
the love that lurks within our hearts,
we celebrate this love/
...in part;

fore tomorrow, standing is banned.

two peas in a pod: tribute to Pastor and Mrs. Arlee Griffin

you met each other at turning points in your lives
many would call that destiny
you'd found out you both had so much in common
you then entered into matrimony
you were both from modest means
but the most important thing
is that you both had a shared love for God
on one accord like two peas in a pod

after leaving college you both went to work
an assumed leadership in a southern baptist church
but that was not the end of the story
because for you both continued to God the glory
one day you were blessed with a cute little baby
you called her Angel for she was a perfect little lady
then the Lord told you to pick up your staff and rod
for He had a new mission for His two peas in a pod

God sent you a vision He sent you a dream
you then received a request from a church named Berean
you were compelled to venture forth
the voice of the Lord told you both to go north
and upon following God's appointing
you both received another blessed anointing
the Lord gifted you with another precious baby girl
whom you proceeded to name Ariel
and now with your family situation complete
there would be other challenges for you both to meet
and as long as you both continue to honor and love the Lord God
He will be the strongest vine for His two peas in a pod

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…

I like your love

I like your love
It's pure, it's innocent
and I don't think I've seen this before

You replenish my reserves before it's necessary 
you lift my wings up and 
make me superior to my adversary 
Creatively providing the exact amount of 
what I need to go another day
I like your love
and for as long as you'll have me I'll stay

You make me comfortable in my space
What she share cannot be replaced
with any other type of love
be it artificial or tainted or lustfully blatant 
Those illusions don't exist because
we found this love and we claimed it

I cherish those nights when I scratch your head
When you sit between my thighs and I twist your dreads
We become an us that is so pure
that the spring waters question the purity of it's source
I like your love - it's a divine force

Love Will Out

In February? Sun burn from looking up at the sky? 
My Oh My… Yes, it’s so very nice and warm.
The trees are blooming and it warms my heart.
Even the groundhog came out, smiled, and looked around…
Six more weeks of this winter? The Best there’s been…
I’ll get out my Valentine trappings tomorrow at dawn.
Then I will go get our leaf blower and make it to blow…
Bubbles and Valentine hearts high in the air…everywhere… 
When my Hubby reaches our home and walks in the door…
I’ll cover him in hearts full of love… with kisses galore…
Yes, I’ll show him my heart… As he walks in… 
I’m sure… On Valentine’s Day our hearts will soar, again…

Happy Valentine’s Day to All and your Loves…

Words spoken in silence,

[When language does not suffice]

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

Into a coma I am

There is a whisper within my mind that haunts my heart with shame,
Its grows a stem within my heart and sets my life to blame
I cannot bare my soul to you, for it as run its course,
but if you see to where I go then you will find the scource.

I bend to break but cannot hope that it would end my fate,
I simply beg my destiny, to set it a quicker date.
A thought would come and so I yield to this my dismal line,
it surely came when I drew breath, but never was it mine.

I wish I lived inside a coma to meet my final dream,
to live a dream with emptiness, is better than it seems.
To live a life with nothing and only prayer to keep,
what stops my hand at wanting, to send my mind to sleep?

Its such a pretty sentiment to give this lonely man,
a wife and child that have no home, is this his master plan?
Laughter is so bitter sweet without a melody,
its simply just an echo, filled with melancholy.

I wish I was a coma, to escape material lands,
but as I cannot choose it, I'll stick with empty hands.
So now I call to you, a robot of mankind,
if I cannot have my dreams, then leave me please my mind.

Wedding Poem

Today is the day we join in life and love.
To love, honor, respect, each other forever.
As we live in this life, and in Heaven above.
God bonds us together today and forever.
We join in union together in heart as one.
Our minds intertwined not put aside by any.
We share this day with all who live in Heaven.
For those who have gone on their path, before us.
Let Angels ring the bells, which sound in Heaven.
Sending a message to all we are one, together.
Our love we pledge between us everlastingly.
Through turmoil, adversity our love will grow.
Along with all our happiness, that God will show.

And tomorrow those who fell we forgot.

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.

Anniversary Roses

A floral fragrance, sweet perfume
It lingers here within this room
As flowers in spring, surely bloom
Still, none compare to you

Your scent, it floats on a breeze
It finds me then it weakens knees
So wonderful, always meant to please
I love you, yes I do

The Heart of Poverty

Once upon a time, mother was gifted new life.
Reformed, reborn the second child to poverty, 
through the coldness of a Maine winter came beauty.
A fair Eve to her brothers Adam construction
her bloom was destined for a fresh spring being
and her eventual undoing awaits at death.

And, so she was born from the stark darkness of death
and raised on the undone leavings of old life.
Grandma brought bright sunlight with all of her being.
Granddad culled the forest deer to dress their poverty.
A thin walled lake cabin, a homes base construction
housed a family full of fine children’s beauty.

Field and forest with flower and tree were her beauty.
The doe, the buck, the rabbit bought life from their death.
The harshness of this life brought forth angry constructions,
razor strap beatings on small white behinds laced their lives.
Fishing, gardening canning and sewing relieved poverty
In time love came for her dancing into being

The Big One WWII brought my Dad to being
Auburn hair and chocolate eyed was Mom’s beauty
Her handmade clothes sewn with the art poverty
The war had brought them all too close to death
Lovers grasp at the gift they’re given, gifted life
and a new family of country and city was constructed.

Fifty years more , she was given, in this soul construction
tearful years of longing for a different being
with little joy at home, the family of this life
denying the world outside the walls the beauty
not even accepting the end of pain her death
Her gift to me, knowledge, I live not in poverty.

Mom died on a cold wet January day in poverty.
Her poverty was of money and not of love’s construction
at her tidy bed sitting with her hand in mine she died.
“Oh, I wish it were so, and then not, with all my being”
Not all of her treasures gone, for her children’s beauty
remains, their love had not left her throughout her life.

Though in reality Mom lived a short time in poverty being
but the construction of even that poorest plight was always beautiful.
And what is death really once through the pain but rich new life.

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.

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.

Done For Good

Her look that day,
Should have told me everything she could not say.
Unprepared, I stared.
She walked away.
As she tossed our ring,
I felt the sting.

If I’d known then
How I feel today,
I'd heal the abscess and my heart’s decay,
Before her affection left me there that day.

Fall

Descend
Much prettier than the f word
I descend from the position
that I know is better
A thought 
to cascade to a point 
in the name of (the l word)...
in order to romanticise a decision
Surely I can be at grace and (the l word)
from afar
The Lord does it...or does He?
Do I have to give myself away
in order to feel the proximity of a moment...
recall it endlessly...as it tortures my
conscious 
To be sucked into a reality
so familiar
only to be moving to impurity
Let me subside
and land into my comfort zone..
wherever that is!

A Scent Of Roses



I put away the silver
The crystal…carefully wrapped
The china gathers dust
My plans for life were scrapped
I had no need for trivial things
The world had stopped for me
There would be no more tomorrow
As far as I could see

The dining table set for two
The candlelight that glowed
The flowers that you brought me
The love you always showed
Those memories were too painful
For me to try to bear
Those things forever gone now
That we can’t ever share

But time has a way of healing
And grief begins to fade
And we tend to cling to memories
Of the life that we had made
I remember how the silver gleamed
In the glow of candlelight
And the scent of blooming roses
Wafting the air those special nights

I still set your place at the table
On our “special” romantic night
The crystal sparkles brightly
In the glow of candlelight
The scent of roses wafts the air
I feel your presence near
As I lovingly raise my glass to say
“Happy Anniversary Dear”

Love it

I love it when you're kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs
Passion slowly increasing
breathing deeper
Gaining momentum for the moment 
that draws nearer
Now you're whisperin in my ear
Temperature's rising
moaning, grinding
my body to the rhythm of each 
breath
Enjoying kisses with your tongue on 
my neck
While creating secrets between us 
that manifest
into beautiful stories of lust and 
fantasy
Unafraid to confess 
Rivers flow
The scent of the pheremones 
The beat that the song's on
Tuned in to your passion 
I’m feeling it’s time to make this happen
Finally releasing fear and stress
through pure emotion and love 
Freedom from hurt and distress
I love it when you’re kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs...

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING

Shush be calm, it’s okay I’m right here,
You’re hugging my pillow and shedding a tear

You have my memory and I feel your heart,
Always forever till death do us part.

We’ll always have Paris and the empire state building
Watching the Bulls and the yankees out fielding 

But there’s nothing like kissing and the shared living touch,
and the holding of hands that we loved so much.

The smell of your perfume at the end of a day
Knowing that just before work we had shower play

Making love in the moon light the sun and the rain
The memories of beach the car and the plane

Running naked through sand dunes and chasing the sun
Naked moon bathing naming stars just for fun

It was always and only about just you and me,
And it always and shall be for eternity.

 Please don’t go just yet I have something to say
Then you can let my balloon float away

I thought I knew love and knew what to do
But it all went so wrong when I met you

My wires got crossed an my thinking went wonky
My smarts all went south on a pantomime donkey

But now that I’m gone I don’t want you to worry
I don’t want you to rush to get here in a hurry

It’s all down to you now to play and explore
Before you join my photo in our sons bottom draw

Thank you for sharing your life and your love
I’ll be watching you always from the blue skies above

From the wind in your hair to the moon in your eyes
 From the warmth of the sun and the sea and the skies

Feel loved and not spied on, I want your sprit to fly
I can’t live with the thought of making you cry.

Happy anniversary

The years seems to pass by like days 
Since the first time I bless my eyes on you 
And when you look at me and smile 
In my heart I knew my dreams had come true 

And the first time your hands touch mines 
Your touch make my heart began to race 
And from that moment happiness comes over me 
And after all theses years still shows on my face 

You have become more beautiful every day 
And I am blessed to have you as my wife 
And it brings tears of joy when I say 
Happy anniversary thank you for sharing my life 

I love you as much now as I did before 
And every day it keeps growing more 
And you will be this great mysterious beauty 
That my love will always choose to explore 

Your beauty is like the night and its moon 
And the light of the sun in the afternoon 
And you are the life that breathes life in me 
And with out you my life would be living in misery 

I know some times the rain will fall 
Every love must face some stormy weather 
And I know some times the rain will fall 
But knowing that you are here by my side 
Is the courage and strength to concur it all 

Every day being with you is a miracle 
A miracle that god has bestowed on me 
And I wish every year for the rest of my life 
To say “sweet heart I love you happy anniversary 

You carry my heart and soul in your hands 
And I see my life reflection in your eyes 
And I will love you now and forever 
More than all the billions of stars in the sky 

I look at you and I fall in love all over again 
And I do every time I see your beautiful face 
You are an angel from above in heaven 
You are the sun the moon an amazing grace 

I will never knew what it is you saw in me 
But I thank god the day you and I became “we 
And today I Say with love truth and honesty 
I love you sweet heart …happy anniversary (

Party

Celebration comes when we see fit But we can only celebrate just a little bit 'Cause with all the travesty that surrounds us We look for a good escape, And it does not matter Neither the time nor the place. One man's trash, Is another man's treasure. So is one man's victory Another man's defeat. Never do both the men Run at a parallel. Thus, who deserves happiness When they both meet. This must be a familiar trait All humans tend to have in common; Plus fighting for our wants, And the things we don't see coming. We must find some form of joy, The smallest spec of it in our lives. Even if some of the joy Will bring trouble sometimes. So, we simply set our minds As long as the moment feels really right We will let tomorrow happen If we make through the night

March, February & Beyond

I saw a girl at the fag end of March, 
And how i wished she could be mine,
Then i realized it was just a dream, 
And went back to sleep,
Hoping the supernatural would happen.


Then i woke up in the middle of February 
& realized it was true,It had happened!
She was mine.. 

God had given me a gift, which i asked for
For the 1st time,
Heart of Gold, Touch of silk, which made me mad
Held her skin tight, like ma prize,
Hope to keep her that way, till the end of time.

We have come a long way,
Started in March, 
continued through February & Beyond.

Let dimensions convolve and end at infinity,
All i wanna say is, ill keep her with me,
Ill keep her happy & keep her satisfied..
just as the way i got her, if not better.

We have come a long way,
Started in March, 
continued through February & Beyond.

If she will never stop amazing my spirit.
Bring her to me, 
If she will never stop beautifying my heart.
Hand her to me,

Entrust her to me,
If she will never stop till she fight my war.
Leave her to me, 
If she will never wish for my death before the hour.
Send her to me,
Let our hands lock in wed.
Send her to me,
Let our oneness soul united.

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.

illusions

there you were 
sunlight
brought you back to me 
like yesterday 

afternoons 
we'd share a spoon
seldom thoughts 
of tomorrow loom
 
I was there 
when you failed to sleep
I held you 
Right next to me 

After all
we adored your fall
summer fields
and winter chills 

hope is leaving 
quick and fast
I'm all you need
to make it last 

usually 
i allude to you
when i'm not 
happily

There you were
like yesterday
satisfy 
my addiction

saturdays 
brought you 
back to me
sweet misery

hope is leaving

The Play's the Thing

They went to the theatre to see a play and the lights began to dim.
In the dark he reached out his hand to her and she gave her hand to him.

They sat and watched the plot unfold as the story was revealed,
They whispered into to each other’s ears their secret stayed concealed.

She held on tightly to his arm while the villain’s plan became displayed,
But then she released his arm when all was safe leaving him dismayed.

Then in the dark she turns her head and steals a glance at him
She thinks that if the villain came for her, he’d tear him limb from limb.

He turns and in the glow can see the beauty that belongs to her
And even though he’s much too old, a hero begins to stir.

There will be theatre this night and not just on the stage
For as long as there remains soft light they need not act their age.

They are in a play called life and are acting as lovers do,
The stage is set for romance when one shall be made of two.

The Death of Laci Rocha-Peterson

It's been almost ten years to December 2002 since Laci Rocha-Peterson and her unborn son were killed by her loser husband, Scott Peterson. This case has haunted the lives of all of the citizens of a California town called Modesto; just outside of San Francisco. It seems that Laci's life was ended permanently too soon, especially when she had planned on giving birth to Scott's first born son, Connor. Both of her parents (her mom and step-dad) were angry, her brother was also angry and dismayed, the people were shocked and disgusted, and so on. Scott Peterson was afraid to be a father, that he never wanted to spend the rest of his so-called "life" with his late wife, and, on top of all that, Mr. Peterson was also afraid that his late wife, Laci, would find about his love affair with another woman named Amber Frey, so he killed her as a cowardly act. Laci Rocha-Peterson and her first born son really didn't deserve to die by the hands of her own husband, their own flesh and blood. She and her son had a whole life ahead of them, especially when her son, Connor, was about to begin the first day of school and stuff. But now that baby Connor and her mother are not on planet Earth and in heaven now, their family members, especially her parents and his grandparents, are still in a depressive mode. What kind of human being would want to dump his or her spouse in a body of water, let alone the San Francisco Bay? Who does that? The media, including the CBS Network, Nancy Grace, and the San Francisco Post were all over the Laci Peterson case, especially when everybody knew that Scott Peterson Selfishly killed his own wife and unborn son. What a coward he is and/or was. Scott may have had all of the ones he loved fooled, but when he walks into the death chamber and is executed by lethal injection, God will decide his punishment. And when He does, Scott Peterson will pay for what he did to his wife and own son, his own flesh and blood. The spirits of Laci Rocha-Peterson and her son will live on in their relatives' lives and through the hearts of the ones who knew her. May she and her son rest in peace.

The One

Simply put she takes my breath
From the stars at night
Up in the sky as I look into her eyes
I swim inside her soul

Her book I've read, lost for words
That smile is a novel I cant put down
Pulling me in time and time again
I've finely found my feather

FULL HOUSE

FULL HOUSE

“Full house,”   she said     “Every seat’s taken
There’s an excitement out there!” she said
All he saw was the empty stage
                             a Steinway Grand       its bench
His accompanist stood off
          cigarette in hand     just exhaling a puff
                                                              so unconcerned
He was nervous    very nervous
                                                 but then
He was always nervous    and for hours before
He’d thrown up in the rest room a few minutes ago
Nothing new
He often threw up before a recital

Wild thoughts went through his head
    (those tall    thick    billowing curtains
                                         looked strangely threatening
                         so dark blue    grotesque)
His mouth felt dry
     (what if he should choke during the opening work?)
He felt a bit dizzy
     (what if he should pass out?
                       the fall shattering his priceless Stradivarius)
Was it too late to cancel the concert?
     (he was still slightly nauseous)
What would people think?
What would people say?
His accompanist was so calm
     (his accompanist must hate him –
                 hope that he might play poorly
                   look how he raised his chin as he inhaled
                      staring eyes
      what was he looking at?
                                             What was he thinking?)
There was that one passage in the concerto 
     (he’d played it hundreds of times
                        never satisfied
                                        never quite perfect
         what if he fumbled that passage
                                        even just one note?)
His tails felt tight
     (he should have had them altered
              What if the underarms split out?)

Everything at once!
He felt like running!
     (don’t be ridiculous!)
 
His manager was all smiles
“I tell you, Robert, there’s excitement out there!” she said

Robert’s knees were knocking
“You all ready?” she asked
Robert nodded, yes
The house lights dimmed
Boris, his accompanist, stomped his cigarette

“Out you go!” she smiled
(please don’t tell me to ‘break a leg’) he thought

Happy Mother's Not

Thank you mother,
you birthed me,
you nursed me,
you fed and clothed me.

You loved me,
when seems, the word had loathed me.
I'd not want that love in vain.

However this is not your day.

Thank you mother, 
for your support,
and your optimistic sheen,
it's inspiring
and always has shaped the person whom I am.

But this is not your day.

It belongs to the greeting card companies.

Who've robbed another holiday.

Robbed it of all meaning, 
all substance and heart.
Robbed it of it's very soul.

Deformed it,
corrupted it,
chewed it up and spat it,
till it's obscure meanings long forgot;
faded into history, a mother's not.


------------------------------------------------------------------

Dedicated to my mother, whom I love. 
Also dedicated to Julia Ward Howe who invented a holiday meant to end war and poverty.  And to 
celebrate all families.  Who died before her dream could ever be realized.

And...to Anne Jarvis who forced through the holiday, hoping to continue Howe's work and end war 
and poverty and create a better world for all,  only to see that dream shattered as Greeting Card 
companies and greedy conglomerates perverted it's ideals to nothing more then lip service 
dedicated to selling cards and candy.

To celebrate some mother's publicly, while other's have their health care raised and their social 
security stolen.  While single mothers have to risk their health and their lives to barely feed their 
children.  

This holiday is an abomination.  It doesn't celebrate motherhood, it degrades it. Women don't need 
to be celebrated nearly as much as they need a good world in which they can better raise their 
children.  A world in which they can feed their children. This holiday is a Mother's Not and so is this 
world.

Live In My Heart

Live in my heart
And possess my soul,
Adding chapters to lover`s tales never told.
Many could preach about
How tight they hold,
But this I see till the time we`re old.

Live in my heart
Where true love lies,
Where embracement and kisses 
At once hypnotize.
My thoughts your thoughts
At one in twine, 
Lips to lips
But both hard to find.

Live in my heart
And you`ll see my love,
True love...a sweet love,
Is what I have for you
And only you my love.

Heart Felt Blessing

With my entire heart and the very breath of my soul
I send you my Love to touch and to hold

On the wings of a dove so perfectly pure
May all of your wishes be eternally assured

May the joy you bring, as we are held in God’s hands
Over flow back to you as it continues to expand

May your life be everything you wish it to be
As we move upon its open sea


Happy Birthday… My Love… To You… From Me.
May our glorious life continue to be full of such revelry



Written for my Hubby’s birthday and our Anniversary.

Anna

The childish silliness
The sweet clumsiness
The burning storm
On your head
My everyday trial of patience.

You piss me off
All the time

All the time
You make me smile

I want to kill you
With squeezing hug

Whenever you cry
My soul tears apart.

One smile of yours -
The sun shines again
Even if it rains outside.



Sight of you
Weakens me

I lose my cruelty
My hunger for revenge:

My violent arms soften
My veins loose;


You need me
as much as
Vital you are
to my wild heart
not to burst hatred.

You teach me 
patience and tenderness,

Sometimes I hate you
I love you always
Though not in love am I.



I shall be yours
till the end of time
To make you happy
- a new goal in life:

Whatever your wish from me
Will happen
Always and ever

Forever to you
I am devoted

My dear friend,
No easier words
would paraphrase
the essential emphasis
of what I feel
but
'I love thee' -
Every single day.

Ring In The Changes

Ring In The Changes


The old year’s over, so let’s leave behind
Fear and the worry... they’re two of a kind
Old quarrels and heartaches that left us in doubt
Indecision and loneliness, we can well do without!
It’s time to move on now, to pastures anew
The sorry old lines and excuses just won’t do  

What if’s and maybe’s, that stunted our plans,
no longer are we hostage to their torrid demands
Open your mind to life’s endless choices, 
why sit in silence, when you can shout with loud voices?
To all who can listen and understand,
there’s a world of possibilities out there to command.

VALENTINE

				VALENTINE

Come all; love all
Come love; love all
It's Valentine's time and we all know the time
The time is now and now has always been the time.

This is world celebration
The celebration has always been for the world
It's public and same time private
It's for you as it's for me.

Many misunderstand what this feast of love is
Many claim to understand it better than others
Many don't care about understanding it; just want to celebrate it
It's time for love; let the time be all about love.

It's Valentine
Celebrate it how you want to celebrate it, with whomever you choose
Give all and hold nothing back; take all and leave nothing behind
It's Valentine; make it your loving time.

Lordvip
I love you all.

Let's escape to space
& Leave the human race 

Space-love a new awesomeness
Forget the life & the gloominess

Kiss me, because I care
Even thought the life is unfair

Love you now, tomorrow & forever

Lest Live in a house made of stars
& drive spaceship instead of cars 

We feel the space-love in moon
I'll be yours, you'll be mine so soon

Galaxy, universe, stars & limitless
Screw the world, we found happiness.

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.

Seasoned

We boomers, as our generation’s called,
have lived through two seasons, considered great,
during which our values were overhauled --
The Summer of Love and Autumn of Hate.
Both brought us together and gave us hope.
In the face of injustice, both were staged --
the first, a celebration with free dope,
the other a tragedy that enraged.
We were innocent in ‘Sixty-Seven;
we saw world violence and were appalled.
Our attitudes changed by Nine-Eleven;
we sought revenge, though we were shocked and galled.
While Winter of War passes, may we find
The Spring of Renewal and peace of mind.

INSIGHT TO UPTOWN CHRONICLES

CHANGE by Ian Munywe
upon his visage boasts sweat,industry an upheld virtue.
firm stature is exhibited,hard labour an accepted custom.
a time for toil yearns,wheat and other victuals for the future.
every stride to strive in burning heat,a quest out of perpetual penury.
feelings of disillusionment eminent,in the brink of a huge fall.
life such a baffling puzzle,everyday hustle inevitably knows no end.
 
a new dawn presents opportunity,quite in a rush for elevation.
an orison heard audibly,benedictions befalling a mortal.
reverted in such haste such distaste,it were best in prior times.
a new sense of belonging looming,adaptation of wanting predisposition.
amidst all the experience,hardly a thought in modesty lines.
 
amnesia having set in,pristine of new life in no time.
integrity eroded ferociously,candidacy annihilated in totality.
how mankind does change, indeed swiftly we tend to forget.
 
 

 
 
RISE by Ian Munywe
two sides of a divide collide inside,audibly voicing their thoughts.
optimism reverberates severely,realism ricochets as quite a formidable term.
resounding trials too eminent,life manifested in a perplexity of events.
too many fish upon this vicinity,evidently not enough room to fry.
by all means he shall triumph,by any means necessary.
 
hard gravel swept over by dust,feet shuffle upon tough earth.
mallets bash into rigid steel, potrait of his new born remains sole solace.
all efforts to reap this here season,barren yield begets unknown anguish.
a sojourner already on course,in vehement search for a new start.
by all means he shall triumph,by any means necessary.
 
wary he tranforms worn he conforms,glimpse of the past vision of the future.
feet now trod upon all rugged earth,all adorned in strapped sandals.
steel once too rigid little too hard,antiques and ornaments an eventuality.
henceforth sight of new territory such insight,cite so picturesque a gaze in awe.
by all means he shall triumph,by any means necessary.

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.

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.

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.

Today Is September 1 2007

On this day 16 years ago a beautiful baby girl was born.
As I cried they took her away.
My grandmother watching as if nothing were wrong.
Photos came for a brief moment then stopped
She was gone never to be herd from or seen.
It seemed as if she just vanished.
The agencies said her new family had moved.
No forwarding address to be found.
They apologize for the inconvenience.
Trying to convince me not to give up hope.
Hope what is this, something I find hard to have.
Years have come and gone and not a word.
The last photo I reserved she must have been 3 or 4 years old.
My search it still continues today, 
but not a trace of her or her family do I see.
On this the anniversary of her birth
 I still cry for the loss of my baby girl I bore so long ago.

Today is so very special
the day you were chosen
the cutest smile
and most vibrant halo
you were brighest of the cherubs
and once again we celebrate 
the day your path was laid
that lead you to my door step
and conquered my heart

 So I say have a very special
Adoption Day
be cheerful and proud
for this day means as much to me as it does to you.

To Veterans All Over the World

(In celebration of Veterans Day, allow me this sentimental poem.)

Seems no higher thing existed
Than the mud on my shoes
For no other sight I beheld,
Trudging this gruel on these blisters

No one was ever for war
But war is what found me
Politics aside, those voices are far,
Doing right is all I need

Somewhere someday maybe
My hunger will cease,
And smiles of gratitude I’ll receive
On behalf of my friends, deceased

My needs are simple enough now
But no civilian will ever share
This weight of humanity grand and foul
Well, duty and honor is all I care

I’ll get through this just to see
How precious one life can be
My life for yours, my sweat for your tears
That’s just the way I can be all that I can be.

The Life She Has Always Wanted

There’s a girl, sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life that she’s always wanted.
She’s not looking for a fairy tale or gold.
Just a little work, and some love not from the usual mold.
He walks in with promises, ending in heartbreak and tears.
She drowns him out slowly, with new dreams and a few beers.
The girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she’s always wanted.
Two years have passed, not much has changed.
She still comes each week to sit at her corner table.
Some work, many dreams, and a few beers become her label.
The women all judge her inside their private mind.
Small town men buy her a drink, wink and smile, but aren’t her kind.
The girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she has always wanted.
She has big dreams of life, love, and the woman that she wants to be.
I sit across the bar, wishing she’d look just once more to me.
I turned my back, messed up not long ago.
She told me that she loved me, but she had to go.
I failed to show her my love, I’d hurt her badly.
Breaking her heart blindly, while loving her madly.
That girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life that she has always wanted.
Pulling the ring from my pocket, my jaw stubbornly clenching.
I push through the crowded room, and voice my intention.
Dear Beth, I will love you forever. I’m down on my knees!
Just give me one last chance, and marry me please.
That was two years ago yesterday.
And still my love grows more every day.
For the girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she has always wanted.
As I nod and thank the bar tender, and add to his tips.
I pick up two drinks, turn to the back of the bar, a smile on my lips.
Cause there is my girl, sitting at the back of the bar.
Living the dreams of the life that she’s always wanted.

                                                                                       Summer Gratias

Flower Plateau

It's pretty late, isn't it?
The day's done, Midnight draws near
You mischievously glance at me
I carry you away to our room

Along the way, I think
Of all the last four years have given me
Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Warheads all rusting in peace

Four years ago, I was still so innocent
Fresh eyes, clear mind
Chasing some distant dream
Through a lush, lovely forest

And in a massive clearing, I found the dream
And took her in my arms
She ripped herself away before I could blink
And dragged me down into her suicidal spiral

It took months to escape
To pull us both out
My eyes became jaded
And her innocence was given to another

Latching onto a beam of light
I clung to another
Treating her emotions like a toy
And feeling that I was making her stronger

I became addicted to her quickly
I lived to repent my sins
And repent I did
As I became the toy to her

And in that time, I headed west
Trying to ease the pain of loss
Dragging yet another soul down
And running when it became too much

I've yet to apologize for that
Maybe it goes without saying
But if it doesn't
I send my prayers and sorrow to her skies

And as I walked upon the plateau
Where nothing but weeds grew
I found a single flower
Weakly blooming under the dust

That flower would change my life
And alone I sat on that plateau
Blooming alongside it
Blooming alongside you

And as time passed
The plateau began teeming with flowers
As my life and yours
Became increasingly intertwined

My sorrows melted away
Every loose end that caused me strife
I went back to tie up
And close another chapter of my life

My thoughts come to a halt as I look upon you
Your body under mine, our heartbeats in sync
I take you in my arms and press my lips to yours
Here atop this flower plateau

She Is My Lady

And there she sits, the lady who takes your breath away;
Her absence from my life would just mean a flay.
She sits with a smile but her eyes twinkle,
She would take whatever given, but a ray of expectation would still sprinkle.

Not an admirer of glamor and she would never clamor,
All she needs to know and learn, that where ever you go to her you would return.
If not a diamond ring, if not a love song you sing;
She needs to read it in your eyes, that the relation was never built on lies.

You want to kiss her and she kisses you back which ain't right,
Don't push it further, just sleep off the night.
Next morning when you wake up to the sun,
She'll deliver her love to you, that kiss will engulf you in stun.

You slide just next to her, wondering what she would think,
Her eyes inviting blue, and when she smiles pink.
Pull out the red rose from behind & see the contentment in her eyes.
And that moment you know, she is your angle love in disguise.

No Joy This Christmas Day

The demons are coming again
they come for him this day each year,
in life a stable man ye ken
strong on principles without fear.

While encroaching dreams of others
peace, yet today they have the key,
unlock penetrate then smothers
his sanity invaded be.

He a man of no consequence
a poor poet with all the answers?
courts the life of decadence
a mindful of malign dancers.

This day loathes trace of second chance
a quantum of life’s reduction,
this a phobia of nuance
with it each year an abduction!

For My Dearest Love Jacob

     The dark black sky it glimmers,
     Brighter than the Sun.
     I look around this broken world
(I) see your the only one.
     When all the strength escapes earths roots,
     And floats out past the sea.
     And when the ground below me breaks 
     I know you'll carry me.
     All my hope is buried deep,
     Not just beneath the skin.
     But deep within my soul it lays
     Inspiring my pen.
     This Love I feel embraces me
     The black sky wraps me tight.
     Because of your bright shining eyes
     I know I'll sleep tonight

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!”

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.

Viva! Cinco deMayo!

Freedom and Liberty.
Bought with blood.

We've fought side by side.
Guided from above.

Mexico stood brave.
United States couragous.

Won their wars
And stood victorious!

So let's remember as we celebrate freedom
From our common foes.

That if we always stand together.
We shall surely never fall........

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today


With new dress and suit, flowers, and hair fixed just right
The dreams, plans, and labors of our lives would unite

My brother and his gal stood beside us on the spot
To give witness to the world that we tied the knot

We stood nervous before the preacher at his home
Promised to cling to each other; never to roam

Said “I do” to the questions; gave the preacher his pay
Man and wife; fifty-seven years ago today.

Why?

Today is an anniversary for me, 
although there will be no smiles, no cheers, no congratulations. 
This is the anniversary where there are no words to say,
It's when I remember someone, who passed away. 

He was very close to me, 
let me open up to you, so you can see. 
He was the son of my mother, 
in other words, he was my brother.

Let me paint a picture for you of what we had,
but be warned, this is sad.
From the ages of 10 to 12, he said nothing, not even a mutter.
He was ridiculed by classmates, because he had a stutter. 

After that, life was a hard, scary dream.
One in which he had no confidence or self esteem.
All of this nightmare turned into a reality, 
because of our ignorance and brutality.

He grew up big and strong,
but you could see in his eyes, there is something wrong.
He was 6'2'' and had a body to envy
At age 22 he was what every man wanted to be.

He made himself that way, to have a protective shell,
under his skin, you could see he wasn't well.
He had so very many friends, that he did neglect,
he couldn't get close to people, he meant no disrespect.

He tried so hard at so many things, 
but at a young age, cruelty snipped his wings.
Inside he was afraid so he showed no expression,
looking back, I now see the face of deep depression.

I talked to him and said it's safe and sound,
so he gave it a chance and he came around.
One day he became the father,
of a very beautiful daughter.

His world revolved around his daughter and girlfriend,
but quickly things started to descend.
"Daddy I want you to be with me," 
but he couldn't, she was wealthy, and got full custody. 

I got a call at work, but orders are backing up you see,
I couldn't answer, all he wanted to say was "help me." 
In this world he saw only pain with no light, 
So he ended his life that fateful night.  

I want one more chance to answer that phone. 
I want one more chance to hug you when you come home.
I miss you more than my tears and words can say, 
I had you for 16 years, and for that I am grateful in every way,
When I pray, I will always ask for just one more day.
I miss and love you so much, I just wanted you to know that, ok.

For We Are Not To Judge

For we all have stains=sins that are not all visible to the naked eye
But our consciousness knows them all
Just because they are buried deep within our minds it doesn't mean they don't exist
No one was made perfect, we all fall short of the Glory of God
For we are not to JUDGE another just because they did not commit the same stain=sins as you!
wrong is wrong and always will be wrong!

The Celebration Of Easter

Easter felicitations to everybody 
Calvary greetings to the brethren 
Greetings from him who journeyed to the cross 
Greetings from him whose blood was shed 
Calvary greetings from the throne of grace.

The blood of the lamb who was sacrificed 
The blood of him who is spotless of sins 
An atonement for the sins of all mankind 
For our sake he went to the tree on Calvary 
For our salvation he was crucified on the cross. 

We celebrate his death and resurrection 
By his death our sins were washed away 
By his resurrection eternal life is given 
He so loved the world that he gave his life 
For this he came down from his throne.

He was reproached and humiliated though Innocent 
He was forsaken to the cross by his own 
Nails piercing his hands and feet to the cross 
In his pains he was cajoled and ridiculed 
With passion and love he bore a shameful death. 

His bodily temple destroyed and he was buried 
Death he defeated and rose after three days 
He ascended into heaven and sent us a comforter 
The risen Christ is alive yes Christ lives forever 
At Easter we rejoice and commemorate his Victory.

Anniversary Poem

Our love is infinite
Forever is what are union is
Complete is what you make me
When Dark clouds are before me
I know you are not far behind
Watching over me
Guiding and Protecting me always

Imperfect perfection
Is our relationship
Tears fallen, hearts broken
But, when it is all said and done
I know you will be by my side
Because you live your life just to love me

Loyal and true
You have been there
Through all my mistakes
And never thought any less of me
You always said that I was perfect in your eyes
Though my life has lacked achievement and stature
I feel like the richest woman in the world
Because I have what most people search their whole lives for
A soul mate who completes them
Your love is a priceless gem that I will always treasure
Thank you for loving me

Night of Wild Bells

Celebrating one to leave and one anew
Wanting better days, bidding ones adieu,
Laughing, crying, with special gal or guy
Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.

Winter spirits cheered between all.
Dancing at parties having a ball,
Not allowing midnight to pass you by
Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.

Balloons, confetti floods your sight.
Fireworks, noises fill the night.
Your mind swirling, feeling the high,
Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.

This year your promises are there to keep.
Tomorrow some so weary, stay to sleep,
Some will rise early, with just a sigh.
Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.

Solemn days ended upon the wake.
Happier times are yours to make.
Happy New Years is everyone’s reply.
Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.

Monopolizing

A game we were all born to play
Comes out of the closet today
It's right there next to the game of "Life"
It's "MONOPOLY" and it's mine

Find the token that lets you fit the part
Let us all line up on Start
Shove the dice around to see who is first
Then away we Go in a running spurt

When I get famous I am going to market pieces
That walk, run and roll making happy faces
And and make the time go
As steadily as the games races

And when I get to Boardwalk 
I know what I am going to do
Through everything into hock
And build it all a new

There's nothing in this world like the talk
When little green houses come up wanting rent from a shoe
Thats you, owing rent, to a millionaire with something to prove
So break out the chalk

It's time we take a walk
And discuss 
All the things you can do
Don't fuss

Is that violet, purple or maroon
I'll take it up for the bill anyways
Use it to build more over there by Park Place
Building a great hotel open to the human race 

Now Mr. Banker isn't there something else to sell
I swear you'll my rent or go straight to Jail

On the Harbour She Stands

In her silk evening dress
On the harbour she stands
Looking out to the waters
That claimed her man

The sea was his life
Ever since he was a boy
To be a sailor
Was to be his pride and joy

He made the grade
Through naval school
He was brought up to understand
That the sea can be cruel

Then one night
In the Pentland Firth
The sea was about to show
Its almighty worth

A force nine storm
From the North Sea heads
As his ship was cast
Onto Dunnett Head

No prisoners were taken
This November night
Smashed to smithereens
As she disappeared from sight

The very next morning
The sea was calm and quiet
A difference of hours
From the previous nights riot

Along the rocky shoreline
Bodies were washed up
Bruised and battered
In deathly abrupt

In twisted grace
Her man was found
Amongst the ship he adored
In wreckage surround

On the anniversary of her loss
On the harbour she stands
Looking out to the waters
That claimed her man

Soul Of A Stripper, Life Of A Housewife

The music thumps, the walls jump
She pole dances against the jamb
Dust rag in her right
Polish in her left hand

House is hers for a few hours
To fulfill a fantasy
Bump and grind it babe
The vacumn whiiiirrrs away

Shake that booty, strut that stuff
Transfer clothes in washer to dryer
Wearing faded blue jeans
Kick that leg up higher

Beds are made, bunnies dusted
She cat walks looking demure
Practises a sultry pout
Wiping spots from the mirror

Work the shoulders, drop to a deep squat
Then stick the tush up in the air
Family is due home very soon
Straighten her clothing with care

Greet the kids with hugs, husband with kisses
Getting  dinner to the table
While news plays in the background
Her life is happy, solid and stable

Dishes washed, kids off to sleep
Taking my husband by the hand
This housewife leads him to our room
Where her stripper soul takes command

MY CONFESSION

I got to confess
The first date, you in that black dress
Had me quite possessed
Eyes glued to your chest
I didn’t know what to expect
All I could think was when can I see you next
Now I know why grandpa use to say show respect
Because now I’m the only man laying kisses on your neck
And in other places to make you wet
And it’s the bomb you can bet, yup
But it’s not just about the sex
It’s the T.L.C you give to me
Baby you know what I mean
It’s the times I get to hold you that mean the most to me
There’s no better feeling than having you close to me
Because when your next to me it’s like ecstasy
I can finally feel free and that’s no doubt
Cause you can see in my eyes, full of ‘wow’
Every time I see your bright smile
And I promise
Only in bed with you will I ever act wild

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...

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

Walking down the aisle to meet my groom, didn't realize it was the day of my doom! 

Oh! What can I say. Blinded on My wedding Day.

Holocaust Day of Remembrance

Note:  Every year the government sets aside a Day of Remembrance for the 
Holocaust.  This year it is the first week of May.  Please share this with everyone so 
that none of us or our children ever forget.


They rounded us up one day in the rain
Herded us into a cattle-car train
We were just Jews, it was simple and plain
The pain – we must always remember

When the train stopped there were so many dead
Ushered into two groups, tears were all shed
Weak ones culled out and away they were led
That said – we must always remember

None of this ever has made any sense
Staying alive in good health our defense
We'd spend every day praying out by the fence
Consequence – we must always remember

At night we would gather and in silence we pray
Pray that we make it through one more day
What tomorrow would bring – no one could say
Today – we must always remember

Each morning we’d line up; they’d walk down the rows
Deciding who lives; deciding who goes
Each morning we’d pray that we weren’t one of those
God knows – we must always remember

And the stench in the camp from the ovens by noon
Reminded us all of our impending doom
Relief from this hell-hole could not come too soon
Repugn – we must always remember

There were thousands of us left back in the damp
In our bunks, in the ovens, or the cattle-car ramps
And surviving this ordeal left its own stamps
The camps – we must always remember

So each year we gather on Remembrance Day
To honor the loved ones who have passed away
And the horrible price that they had to pay
We pray – we will always remember

THE CHILD

I am the child
For whom most parents suffer
I am the child
For whom most mothers go through pain
Yet I’m not given the needed attention
Some abandon me on the streets
Others,in deadly pits.

I am the child
The smallest in the society
Yet I grow up to be the greatest
I’m the child
Who grows up to be the future president, lawyer, doctor
And other desired men of the society.

I am the child
Who may also grow up to be the robber, murderer, 
And other nuisance of the society.
All depending on the attention I’m given
So mum, dad and brethren
Let us all help create a better world for children
For indeed, an adult is a child who has really survived.

On My Birthday

Transfixed upon a lucite sunray
the iron blood of longshoremen
washed beneath the whisperings of the bay
a pupil canvas pierced through

vision yellowed in the flowering of a lost identity
the young man swallows deeply and mourns
the gist of his first twenty-nine years.

marriage!

we laugh we cry,but most of all we fight
we lock our horns like two great stags
that fight each other through the night
circling then backing off
while all around the time stands still
we watch each other with angry eyes
neither one will take the blame
our stubbiness combined
our lives are so entwined
with bitterness and lies.
the years we,ve spent at logger heads
have brought us to this place,
its been a long old haul my love
but i think we,ve finally seen the light
i think we know we are in too deep
for us to ever walk away.away from the life 
that we call ours...
i think its taken all these years  
for us to wipe away those tears
and realise marriage is about
give and take,to care and put each other first
at least for some,if not for all the time
that we have left to share.
so as we carry on our way
through thick and thin 
let life begin
and forever hold me close,
never let me walk away
for better or for worse my love x

Love,Life and Death

Life and death
Are mysterious things
You love a living one
in your Heart, 
By your heart 
You also  love a dead one
But in your Mind, in your memory
When your beloved is no more 
When she is dead
Your love shifts places
From Heart to Mind 
You want her corpse to be removed
as soon as possible 
and buried, burnt in fire
Or left to the vultures
depending on what last ceremonial plan
 you believed in 
and chose to perform
Living ones are loved 
Dead ones too 
but death is so scary 
that whenever someone dies
one tries to get rid of him atonce!

Believe Me, My Love

Preface: Written for my wife on our Anniversary less than 13 month's after the tragic death 
of our 22 yr. old son.


Believe Me, My Love

I felt helpless when the earth just stopped, 
and tragedy scourged you with its whip.
Watched your soul bleed faith, heard your heart cry love, 
and I winced with every drip.
The loss and pain you’ve suffered through, 
should now render you immune.
Believe me love,
my love for you is deeper than your wounds.  

When I looked into your heart, 
I could see the welts and scars.
The reasons that I loved you were as countless as the stars.
When I looked into your eyes, 
tears flowed like spring monsoons
Believe me dear, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds. 

You worried me, which fed my fears, 
but surprised me with your fight.
Amazed you could get out of bed, 
when dawn poured her morning light,
You’re stronger than a hurricane, 
and you eclipsed just like the moon.
Believe me honey, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds. 

My gift to you, 
if there were no rules, for our anniversary,
is to take you back , baby close your eyes, 
to the way things used to be,
you’re curled up in bed with your three boys, 
fit snug like silver spoons.
Believe me darling, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds. 

When I reach into your heart, 
I still feel the welts and scars.
The reasons I admire you are as endless as the stars.
When I melt into your eyes, 
sadness lingers as life resumes.
Believe me, my love: my love for you is deeper than your wounds.

You’ve made my life a banquet, 
you’re my soul mate and my lover,
I fell in love with my best friend, 
and married a wonderful mother.
Your songs of love and encouragement remain constantly in tune.
Believe me my love, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds.

Been caught in a scam
Should I have just ran
Try to be good
For God as we should
Always to get bit
Just take another hit
Never knowing why
But continue to try
To live with the strife
Just wanted a wife
Will we ever just fit in the groove
Or should we just move
On the Golden list
I do not jist
Or just change my name
To fit and stay in the game
Never, never win

911: Remember Their Pain

Each year we talk of  911, but time has made it less, my friend.
Have we already forgotten the holes in those lives it left behind?
Their family’s memories will last forever. A whole lifetime…

What if you’d been trapped in one of the towers, with them?
What would you have done while waiting for the end?
With smoke billowing from below, and the heat rising within.
The staircases and elevator shafts are crushed, you know…
There’re impassable. A few injured are with you, still?
Would you believe you’re going to die or live?
Would you hold hands with other survivors of the crash?
Would you wait a rescue from above? Would you pray to God?
Would you smile when others prayed in another language at your side?
Would you wait in silence? Would you simply cry?
Would you take your phone out and call the family, you love?
What would you say when you got them on the phone?
This may be the last time to talk with them, you know.
Would you ask your beloved to hold the phone, to hear the baby’s breath?
Could you even talk amid the tears and pain?
Would you share your phone, for others to do the same?
And when the building began to tremble and rock and fall… 
Would you cry out to God above?

No one above survived. A memory we must not forget.
But don’t forget the thoughts and prayers that were going on within…
Two hours of fear, hope, prayers and pain before the end…

A Walk In The Garden In Moonlight Part 1 of 2

( Song of Solomon 4: 16 )



We Walked In The Garden At Midnight
We Walked Thru The Garden In Moonlight

Among Azealeas & Verbenas & Blue Jonquils
Sweet Honeysuckle, Yellow Primroses & Daffodils
Among White Phlox & Orchids & Pretty Pink Quills
Two Lovers Holding Hands In Romantic Thrill
Your Touch Grows That Budding Power Still

As We Walked In The Garden At Midnight
We Walked Thru The Garden In Moonlight

Among Tulips and Lilies and Wine-Hued Amaryllys
Intoxicating Lilacs & Jasmine & Ground-Cover Iris
Breathing In Lavender & Vanilla & Bougainvillea Scents
Wafting Heady & Sensual Yet of Shy-Perfume Strength

While Walking In The Garden At Midnight
While Walking Thru The Garden In Moonlight

A "Home Sweet Home" Brass Plaque Cast Soft Glints
By A Heartshaped Box Holding Moonflowers & Herb-Mints
Symbolizing Love's Nature The Way It Was Meant
& There Was A Touch of Citrus Somewhere, Just A Hint

Wafting From Beyond Our Closest Neighbor's Fence
Bowed To Our Queens of The Nights As Darkness Squints
and Slender Topiary Stands Crowned With Hyacinths
Guards Our Garden Where So Much Time Is Spent

Walking In The Garden At Midnight
Walking Thru The Garden In Moonlight

Our Garden, Well Tended, Cultivated Thru Till & Toil
Thorn Blooddrops & Brow-Sweat - Has Moistened Our Soil
 Sprouting Tendrils & Offshoots That Loops Softly In Coils
On Our Garden's Ground - Grown So Large & Lovely & Loyal
(as More Queens of The Night & Roses Reigned Royal)

The Story Is: 
We Saw The "For Sale" Sign ...  & It Was Love At First Sight
For Our Family & Our Future, It Would Fit Us Just Right
We Bought The Ground-Plot - Our Land of Dreams So Bright
... Built A House, Made A Home & A Garden of Delight


Filled With Peonies, Carnations & My Philodendron-Fetish
Hydrangeas Spilling Riotously All Over The Trellis
Ivy Interwoven All Thru The Surrounding Lattice
Periwinkle & Prize Winning Magnolias Embellish
As Cattails Encircle The Pond - Our Garden's Chalice
 
We Walked Past Gladiolus & Silver Sage At Midnight
We Stepped Into Our Private - Garden Stage In Moonlight

Our Eyes Became Stars A Reflective Shine
Our Lips Became Sprinklers - Our Arms Were Vines
That Clung To Both Limbs - Yours & Mine
That Attached Like Roots of Evergreen Pines
That Rose Like Stems That Bleeding Heart-Flowers Climb

While Wading Thru The Garden At Midnight
While Wooing In The Garden In Moonlight

Still Sharing Secrets That Our Shadows See
On This  Rendezvous To A Path of Our Life's Journey
We Come To A Stop By A Stand of Myrtle Trees
This Is The Spot Where The Earth Seems To Breathe

As You Kneel In Blue-Star Grass Upon An Older Knee
By The Purple Violets - Where You Proposed To Me
Oh, What Better Way To Start Each Anniversary
than In The Place That We Both Share Passionately 

... When Walking Thru Our Garden At Midnight
and Waking In Our Garden In Moonlight

Happy B'Day

Happy Birthday … Now and Forever More

I was going to send you diamonds and pearls,
but I don’t want to let anything outshine your beauty……
You are one in a million and that’s how you should stay.
I thought of giving you the world and the stars and the moons,
but I don’t want to burden your soul ……
You are one in a million and that’s how you should stay.
For your life’s journeys will bring you gifts,
even when there is not much to celebrate ……
Just always remember…
You are one in a million and that’s how you should stay,
On this your day, Happy Birthday

What is love

Is love a feeling trapped deep inside 
that any painful moment can cause you to cry
Is love an infatuation with the opposite sex
feeling you must always be at your very best

Is love a thought, action, or deed
grown in the heart from the planting of a seed
for what is love but a single notion
that drives the heart with many emotions

Is love the warmth beneath a gentle breath
that sends uncontrollable chills down the back of your neck
Is love the desire behind a stare that leaves you in a daze
hypnotize by lust struck within its gaze

Is love the security felt from a strong embrace
or the steady soft caress of a hand upon your face
is love missing someone when they've gone on a long trip
or the heated passion of a slow kiss upon your lips

Is love merely knowing someone will always be there
just knowing your heart and life will always be shared

Another Year with Time ~Birthday~

A year's the happiest of mothers,
flowered with fertility,
for never shall there be another
more endowed than she.

Despite her plentiful descendants,
time has never left her side.
He happily remained attendant
even when I cried.

How fortunate, that pair of lovers
bound by such a wondrous fate!--
though in their love, I had discovered
that they blessed my date,

for in their love, they set in stone
my birth, and let it now be known,
oh earth!--that I was made this day,
and that I never can repay

the gift they've given me.

Their Anniversary

Looking about 
on a starry night 
An old man turned to his wife. . . 

"I see all the love we've shared 
somewhere -- 
beyond the moon in your eyes." 

She beamed.

Dear Life: Dear Love

I know when I talk, 
I am passionate. 

I know when I act, 
I am driven. 

I know when I love, 
I am scared. 

Thing is, we are all passionate about something. 

I flip out a lot, 
I sometimes shake with frustration,
I sometimes lose my breath. 

I know I am not the most open person in the world, 
But you have to cherish and appreciate the moments
I knock down some walls. 

I apologize for the moments I say things out of anger, 
I apologize for the moments I turn away.  
I have my flaws, 
I am not perfect, 
But that's the best thing out of life and love: 
It's to build foundations and grow from them. 

I hurt easily. 
I only expect the best, 
Because I've seen the worst.

Ode To Sony

Eighteen years of sorrow and abandonment.
Eighteen years of drowning in my own tears and the pity of the pathetic bystanders.
Eighteen years, and it finally comes to me in a sweet epiphany:
MY life starts here.
And what a better way to begin a life than to share it with another?
With a woman no words can describe, no matter how beautiful and exotic
(it would be an insult to say I could,
 for she is anything but definable).
I have an eternity to look forward to with this woman who I pale,
literally,
in comparison.
The woman with the dazzling eyes and perfect smile.
I can forget about regression
and progress to achieve everything I never believed existed in the world.
At least, 
not anymore.
I hear in her voice the sincerity I have craved my entire life.
It's a wondrous thing when you can admit,
wholeheartedly,
that you can literally hear love bubbling up inside the crevices of someone's soul.
She has opened my eyes and ears,
spirit and heart,
when I needed a rescuing no one but her could have offered
with words unrelatable to a past that's eaten holes into my heart.


And she calls herself lucky...

My Life's Boast

 THE GROUNDS I WALK ON IS TOO WORTHY FOR ALL TEN TOES ON YOUR FEET.

THE AIR I BREATHE IS TOO ROYAL FOR YOUR LUNGS.

YOUR EYES AND EARS ENOUGH ARE NOT SHARP ENOUGH FOR WORDS I SPEAK.

YOU ALL CAN NEVER BE ONE OF A KIND, FOR THAT ONE OF A KIND IS ME.

I WOULD NOT BLAME YOU IF YOU ENVY ME.

YET, STILL I HAVE NO ANIMOSITY.

MY LOOKS ARE TEMPTING AND MY EYES WILL HYPNOTIZE

THE EXAMPLE OF INNOCENCE RESTS UPON MY FACE.

THE MIDDLE CHILD YES THAT IS I.

VERY CANTANKEROUS YET ATTITUDE OF A DOVE.

BEAUTY IS MY FEATURES IN AND OUT WHILE SASSY IS MY MOUTH.

YOU ALL DON'T STAND A CHANCE

I'M A KILLER WHALE AND YOU ALL ARE JUST TROUTS.

SO GET IN LINE AND WAIT YOUR TURN

FOR I'M A GODDESS AND THAT YOU'LL LEARN.

NOW DON'T BE SHAME

JUST TURN TO YOUR NEIGHBORS FOR THEM TOO ARE ONE OF MY MANY HATERS.

The Following of the Pipes

On this cold winter night
A horror unfurls
As they leave their trenches
Under the Bagpipes skirl

It's Christmas Eve
In World War One
Over the top they leave
The killing has begun

Knee deep in mud
Barbed wire and bodies
The piper laments
Their bravery embodied

To march into battle
With their weapon of pipes
Whilst bullets and bombs
Leave the theatre in strife

Onward they march
Turning men into hero's
The battle of the Somme
Last centuries ground zero
 
What makes such a man
To enter a war
His weapon of music
That they follow him for

Amongst the men that fall
Others pick up their guns
When the piper falls
Their is no one

On this cold Christmas Day
The horrors have been unfurled
As one looks over the trenches
To a different world

But the very next day
In the distance you will hear
The sound of the Scottish Bagpipes
Leaving their enemy in fear



        In memory to all who fell at Christmas time, and especially to the pipers
who used music as their weapon, we will remember them, as all will be remembered

The Things I Feel Inside of Me

The things I feel inside of me,
I doubt anyone will ever know.
The things I feel inside of me,
I try so hard not to let them show.
The things I feel inside of me, 
Sometimes makes me cry,
The things I feel inside of me,
Make me wonder why I'm ALIVE!
The things I've seen,
The things I've done,
Makes it hard as hell,
For me to live on!
My life is so much better now,
Than it was before,
I finally have someone that loves me,
That I love even more!
This man comforts me, 
When I'm feeling all alone,
The man gives me shelter,
After 25 years I finally have a home!
It's not the walls, the roof, 
or even the floor,
It's the Love and Understanding, 
That I never had before!
I need this man,
More than he'll ever know,
To hold me and love me,
As we grow old!
His smile can always, 
Brighten up a room,
He eyes tell me,
He loves me, 
And he'll never leave me, Blue!
His arms they hold me,
And touch me so gentle.
His body, so handsome and sexy,
I can't get enough!
He always makes me smile,
Even when I want to cry.
He always kisses me gentle,
To tell me he's at my side.
He loves with all he is,
Was, or ever will be, 
With him is where I'll stay,
Through eternity!

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

Free Hearts

My sky is black and so is yours,
The cold sea rushes upon our shores.

I love you dear, we'll run away,
We'll run until our heart fades grey.

Their love is lost but ours is here,
We'll save our love throughout the years.

And as we confess our true love,
Our black sky stares from up above.

The sky is jealous of our pair,
She's jealous of the love we share.

But she cant hurt us, don't you see,
We'll run away until we're free.

Unabiding Ritualistic Radiation

A ritual born as radiance toils straight forth from my center eye threatening to overshadow everything that you are like a bad cancer that takes life from afar that takes back what was never given and return what was never there as a sign you truly care if not now when, how and where? I can't feel back very long I can't send back what went wrong I can't sense that in a fog that's encircling so many pawns A blue baby is always sad just maybe there's more to that his happy gland broken, he hopes it back pick up the pieces then glue them intact I am more than a maybe but less than a yes more better than average yet far from best at least not the worst its reserved for a time when I give up trying and pay all an unpaid mind A care these days is hard to give a bad decision is hard well lived a stare unknowing to spark a burst that sets off a chain into random verse that starts a seance of heavy chanting until blood and sweat build from heavy panting I'm alive, survived where others fell went in and came out of the wishing well with more than just a fist of pennies I let loose a wish so pretty it will radiate now for years to come why do I wait forever when twenty eight years have come and gone?

Anniversary

Although miles apart, I am with you,
even on the day's you feel blue.
I think about you every day,
circumstances, stress, and loneliness cannot make me stray.
It's been 9 years and I don't regret anything I've learned,
cause you're so willing to give love in return.
We've had our times of tribulation and I see them as an experience,
the strength of our love can only be evidence.
A beautiful loving daughter we've created with an innocence unsurpassed,
her potential in life and everyone she encounters is so vast.

For she cannot be seen as anything else but a blessing......

All the places we've been and all we've ever done, I will never forget,
willing to break myself for you through tears, blood and sweat.
The day's to come I can foresee,
having an unbreakable bond, just you and me.
To live out our day's conquering every obstacle we face,
not living in fear, finding strength with each embrace.
I pray that the only thing that will separate us will be death,
from hence fourth my life will be for you until my last breath.

I love you so,,,, so much it makes me insane,
your mind, your heart, all that you are I wish to retain.

For it makes me who I am and what I do,
it's our anniversary my dear and this one is for you!

The Finality of My Life
Is Completely a Relief and Free From All Strife
I traveled many a mile
08 to 11 It took a while
At first she was my best friend
I know in my heart it will last till the end
I feel as I should be in a gurney
For it has been such a long journey
Weeding them out
Because of finding  out all about
Some were shy 
I know not why
Most of them always wanted money
Why should I pay to be their honey
But this one just wants Bill
For with him her heart will completely fill
Full of passion and love 
Sent from heaven above
And soon we will be as one entity
Which will last through infinity
She is extremely so fine
My heart knows she is mine
We are completely entwined like a vine
And we both know it will last till the end of time

The Ride

  Liquid filled dreams crept through the cool night breeze as a still distant thunder cracked the horizon.

  I thought to my self that an earth quake must be taking ground for it’s sake. 

  Safe over the hill and still quit far up aways my moms home baked cookies broke the day.
 
  I had my own “Loc Ness”, quite the demon, and as not to sneak snacks was an easyprice to pay.

  My world began empty and cold as it seemed from one life bring wisdom.
 
Rough enough storm to destroy, every thing that we knew, the tusnami -a wave of a storm.

  I confess to hearing her laugh what a story this was going to make. 

  Later they tried to pan the bottom of the oceans floor hoping to avoid more. 

  And I will leave you here on your own but then after it’s done you’ll be home.
 
  No matter what you’ll stay, but if another one comes Austrailia is that way,my moms arm waved.

   And I see her begining to stare, her mind was set on wide open to get it all those people saved.

  I do still answer myself again and again about why if it hurts so bad, 

The answers all began to be crystal clear and the answer is; 

She worked hard to make it a decent place to live and storms bad enough they called in the Hubble.

   A tusnami destroys everything. 

  Everything she loves about her life is in rubble.

 Based on the idea of how people live,

   And why she cares when they die, 

Fighting with intimacy, 

  While they drag the sea to collect people who died, 

  And my mind begins to wonder why the storms taking so long to decide, 

We are waiting here waiting for another heck of a ride.

infront of your eyes

With pains I am in life living
And I did not know life except with you while I am living

In front of your eyes I became happy
In front of your eyes I became snoopy

And they say not sensitive and not for you 
No my heart and body affected by you

You remember my life, you remember my suffers
You were holding my dreams as lovers

You are the sea with it's beauty and it's water waves
So you are a sea that the moon up of it

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.....

9 Eleven

As I’m thinking back 
To that day I remember
Over three thousand lives
We lost in September...
The images captured 
Still stuck in my mind
And it brought us together
So we all could find...
Some common ground
On which we could stand
No matter the color
You grabbed someone’s hand...
Of those seeking comfort
Or choosing to kneel
To pray for the ashes
Not concrete and steel...
But if we forget
Their deaths were in vain
And new building permits
Were all that we gained...

Look At Me Now

I remember the time when my life seemed bad
never would i smile i was always acting sad
no one could help me 
they didnt know what to do
cause every time they tried only sadness and anger grew
they tried to give me pills 
to outsmart my brain
but they dont seem to relize that only time 
could heal the pain
and little did they know i was dying more each day
but then i met you and you seemed to take it all away
i felt a different feeling one that i had never known
and for the first time in my life i  felt i wasnt alone
i didint know what to do you were stuck inside my head
it all just made me think that mabe not all love is dead
you opened up my eyes to look at life a different way
and not like all the rest you didnt push my love away
you picked the perfiect time i was almost out of hope
i was already on a chair hanging from a rope
you filled my heart with love as it layed dying on a shelf
and not only did you save me from death you saved me from myself
and to this day i can finally say that i know you really care
i hope we stay together to make this feeling last forever and enjoy the love we share

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.

Just For A Moment

Just for a moment close your eyes,

Just for a moment listen to the sounds.

Just for a moment think of the the past,

Just for a moment imagine their rounds.

Try to remember as you celebrate the fourth,

all the meaning behind it and all it's worth.

Be thankful you see pretty colors in the sky,

and all you are listening to are fire works...

Love Is

Love is a rainbow mirrored in the sky
Its free, its beautiful and tells no lies

A gleaming reflection
Upon the still of a pond
The dewy mist on a freshly cut lawn

Love is a sanctuary for our innermost fears
A tiny capsule to hold all of our tears

A symbol of beauty, rare to be found
Its strength and convictions
Knows no bounds

Love is the touch of our first newborn
So soft, so delicate, so easy to adore

An unconditional consenting of souls
An awareness, a spirit, unique to its own

Love soothes and heals though cannot be bought
An eternal commitment so widely sought

Love is a truth and blossoms for few
A necessity of life, a uniting of hearts
A palette so stunning, so beautiful and new

Love is how I feel for you.

Last One Loving...

I got a call, I am to report for military duty in the morning..
I reluctantly tell my wife as she was doing her usual cleaning.

She covers her face with her hands and begins to cry.
I gathered her in my arms and told her I would be back by her side.

Holding my wife, I drifted off on the couch, listening to music.
She was singing and humming quietly to the songs and their lyrics.

She tells me she understands and shows her love and support.
Morning finally came, and she drove me to the airport.

We exchange vows again, and I kiss her tenderly..
She whispers that she will remember this moment blithely.

She received his letters, read and cherished every one of them.
Thinking of the times they were together and the essence of him.

A month went by and she tried every possible way to find her soldier.
She closed her pocket filled eyes and prayed he was out of danger.

Three months passed by without word of his well being.
Trying to stay positive but, in her heart was a dreadful feeling.

She felt so oppressed and worried her hands were trembling.
She was weak and weary, her gait was somewhat stumbling.

She hasn't slept, it seems~since he left.
She takes some sleeping pills and takes a long deep breath.

Couple of days go by and he "rolls" through the doors.
He looked at her paleness and begins to feel remorse.

His thoughts start to torment, right or wrong, was now confusing..
Tears fall from his weary face, his mind is loosing…

She deserves better, he tries to reason with himself.
Reaching, he loads the contents~placing the box back on a shelf......

GOOD OLD ABE, SOLUMN SOL AND YOU TOO

           GOOD OLD ABE, SOLUMN SOL AND YOU TOO

If there were an entrance fee to get into Heaven how much would you pay?
And let me tell you brother,  it won’t help you now to pray
So you get to Heaven with 56,000 bucks and St. Peter looks at you in scorn
“Sorry sir, but The minimum cover charge here is the life of your first born”

If there were something difficult to do to become Heaven bound?
And you must decide soon before you’re fodder for the ground
Would you sneak up on an old lady and strike her about the head?
Now keep in mind, this is the deal when destiny deems you dead

If the only way you could get into Heaven meant your pretty daughter’s death
Would you cast away your daughter’s life and give a stranger her breath?
What if the cost of Heaven turned out to be the life of your younger brother,
And after your brother bleeds out you must then slay thy mother?

God tempted Abraham on a mount with his son’s death in his hand
And Solomon, when he said he’d split the babe in half, no one could understand
So my brother, to Hell is where you are bound lest thee come up with an answer
“Yo Saint Pete, how about we get rid of the boss by gibing God colon cancer”

I Do

Admist the rocky mountains
And the natural springs 
Comes a better place I remembered things

under this lamp post is where
you first asked me to take 
your hand in marriage 

I remember you down on 
one knee and the snow was 
just starting to fall 

You looked like a little lost puppy 
looking for a way to speak I
took your hand and said yes

That was over twenty years ago
And to this date we still come back
to the Springs of Colorado and say I Do

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

She Came...They Went (A Love Story)

Long black ribbon tied in a bow around his neck, 
handsomely he stood there...waiting
Hair neatly pulled back in a ‘french twist’,  small 
band with two feathers and a tiny veil about her 
head...gracefully, she came

She came...they went

The journey would not be easy...they both knew it...
but...there was love...
Then, there was God...and God’s love grew 

Percentages said it wouldn't last

Mountains of blessings...valleys of disappointment...
oceans of God's grace...in faith, they weathered the storms...
42 years......together

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

New Year

Another one past, question mark to go
Frustration’s set in, time moving slow
He says the answers come in time
And so I pass away, riddled in rhyme
Reaching out for dead ones to see
I’ll ask again, in dreams come to me
If you do not, I won’t last very long
And loved ones will think of me wrong
This fixation has turned me crazy
And reality has become a little hazy
I should resolve to make it end
I never even knew, my friend
And so, I rely on unreliable chatter
That I may understand what was your matter
So another one past, question mark to go
I think I’ll stop counting, time moving slow
You’re gone from us now, no sense in caring
Busy yourself in circles, no time for sparing
Another will come and eventually go
I’ll still be sitting here, time moving slow

The B-17 and the ME-109

Somewhere over Europe
A B-17 flies
Strafed and damaged
In her enemies skies

The flak has taken
Its toll on the plane
This crew so brave
In this theatre of war campaign

Many hours have passed
With no sight of the channel
Only land ahead
Is it our instrument panel

A shout is heard from the rear of the plane
A Messerschmitt ME-109, beside us flies
We are sitting targets for another kill
The pilot turns his head, as i look into his eyes

He is making a gesture
For us to turn 180 degrees
Do we believe our enemy
But we eventually agree

He continues to fly
Like an escort of question
Were we right to agree
His degree of suggestion

For up ahead we see
The glint of blue water
Our horizon of hope
Are we saved from slaughter

Moments later
As i turn my head again
A wave from the German
As he banks his fighter plane

We are now well over the channel
As we sight the white cliffs of Dover
Our B-17 in struggle
This mission near over

On the runway at Kimbolton
The fire crews stand ready
Will our plane take the landing
Is our undercarriage steady

Touch down we make
As we talk of our flight back
About the German fighter pilot
Who refused to attack

 
    It is now many years later
    For we were lucky, we grew old
    As we assembled on anniversary
    Our story could now be told 

    For he had kept it his secret
    But now we have to say
    Franz Stigler and his German fighter
    Is why we are before you today

    He was scrambled to intercept
    The enemy that we were then
    When he arrived we awaited
    The fate of us men

    When he viewed our plane
    He couldn't believe his eyes
    Why something so shot up 
    Still flew in his skies

    When he returned to base
    In his reports he states
    It went down over the sea
    And sealed our fate

    After all these years
    I am so happy we have met
    We have lived many years
    While our lost colleagues have slept

    I thank you Sir
    For sparing the lives of my crew
    As we stand together for peace
    We salute you


 
 This is a true story from WWII, written by request for Sara Kendrick,
who loves to challenge me, and i thank Sara kindly for the opportunity

Ode to Audrey

Glamorous, fun and full of life
Always an interesting and loyal wife
Around the village she is known
For living life in her own particular tone

For her family she does prepare
Many a feast beyond compare
For the animals so oft alone
She has given much love, shelter and even her home

Come Christmas time the house is all a glitter
As Audrey runs around doing the annual jitter
Smiling from within is this special being
Generous, giving and all seeing
Her energy would seem to overflow
Never one to leave others low
This is my grandmother The Great Grandy
Whose life runs circles around those less than 80!

To my life you have brought
Something which can never be taught
You gave yourself, you made me smile
As I saw you go the extra mile
Within my thoughts I hold you dear
And in that way you are always near
I close my eyes and picture your face
And know that time cannot displace
The essence of the inner you
That in my life now follows through

Thank you for always being such a dear
Your effect on my life is more than clear

Pooskie

As the days roll on by,
and turn into years
Your heart has stood by me,
through laughter and tears
My heart just explodes,
when I think of you
With love, light and wisdom,
you brighten my world
Your honor and integrity,
inspire me to soar,
Through a lifetime of happiness,
I could not want for more

Partnerships

Several weeks of flirting,
Two back massages,
Asking for a date,
Trip to dinner and Wal-Mart,
Sneak of a kiss over shoulder,
Asking for a second date,
Several dating times,
More kisses and hugs,
Flowers on birthday,
Remembering date of first date,
Valentines Day flowers,
Special poem for her,
Asking for hand
Wedding day,
Remembering special dates,
Saying those words,
I love you!

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"

birthday

Tonight the stars are in my eyes
Tomorrow comes as no surprise
In the morning when I rise
Another years has slipped me by...
It marks the day of my first breath 
Don't know how many I have left
But each heartbeat in my chest
Has given me a chance at best...
So I thank the lord upon my knees
He speaks to me within a breeze
And before I start my day
It's him I want to hear me say...
I'm grateful for so many dawns
And any seed I may have spawned
Cuz after I am dead and gone
It's thru my children I live on...

to put out or not to put out

we swirl around each other
in conversation
we dance with one another
with our eyes
yet ... 
we always hold back
we speak in reverse
like-

"already involved"
"involved already"
"coming out of a bad one"
"a bad one coming out"
"not my type"
"type me not"
"you seem great, but i just can't "
"i can't justify your seeming great"
"there is no chemistry"
"chemistry is no where"

i wish there was more
because we know 
better
but ...

ah ... 
the desperate souls
... they speak from a tongue that is older than
sanskrit

and in this 

we all just want to feel alive 
and connected 
to the expanse
called the universe

INFINITY

They are Cruel


How many of us suffered to death?
How many of them gained more wealth?

How many of us mourned?
How many of them earned?

How many times we suffered such a pain?
How many times they will do this again?

They are Cruel

but…

We don’t have to be.

New Years Resolution

Tomorrow is so uncertain
That you should live for today
Before Death draws its curtain
And takes you away.

If there are things you would like to do
Then do it now, before life is through.
Listen to Life’s music, hear it’s throbbing beat
Follow it quite blindly, with dancing feet.

Bring to the world much joy, and also have some fun
For little time is left, before life has run.
Enjoy the simple pleasures that our Earth has to offer,
The birds in the garden, the flowers on a tree
The glory of a sunset, and Nature’s harmony.

And last, but most importantly, remember to love
All the people on this earth, and the Creator above.
In another world and on another day, once more
We will meet each other, with a love that’s just as sure.

The New Year Is Here

A day like other days but different 
A week like other weeks but different 
A month like other months but different 
A year like other years but different. 

The day comes with its own chores 
The week comes with its own activities
The month comes with its own events 
The year comes with its own anniversaries. 

Last year has gone with its daily chores  
Last year has gone with its weekly activities  
Last year has gone with its monthly events
Last year has given birth to this new year. 

Its a new day with daily settings 
Its a new week with weekly activities 
Its a new month with monthly events
Its a new year to make fun memories. 

The day may come with its low points 
The week may come with its drags 
The month may come with its set backs 
The new year do come with expectations.

What gave them the Right

On this September day
From the air they came
Cowards in flight
For what to gain
 
Airliners hijacked
For their pathetic cause
The praise they choose
Were religious flaws
 
To take ones life
Is not their write
No where is it written
Or hidden from sight
 
A phrase i now mention
Is " The Scum of the Earth "
This chosen few
Are just not worth
 
Heroes and martyrs
Are they supposed to be
What gave them the right
To attack, the land of the free
 
What do we do
In the years ahead
Do we sit back and watch
As they instigate dread
 
The excuse we call oil
Is now in the past
For our soldiers will continue
To be maimed or lost
 
Can you imagine our countries
As they attacked on mass
The world needs democracy
We are in it, to the last

Liaison

Sadly I’m happy 
I worry 
From you to me 
I shouldn’t have you 
And vice versa 
You sing me songs 
I write to you in cursive 
A reluctant curse of mercury 
My words 
Never purposely hurt you 
Champagne glasses 
A fence of Vinyl   
Our intake of your chardonnay 
Too vastly 
Becoming more comfortable 
With this character 
You typecast me as 
You take me 
You ruin my thoughts 
Who’s right 
Who’s never wrong 
On weathered days we picnic 
We voyage the river home 
It’s obvious 
It doesn’t bother me 
But it does 
You are all that I was 
Seductive 
A game seldom played 
Lovely 
An inspiration 
Not welcome in our days 
You cry 
But I don’t care to focus 
You care 
But I don’t notice 
If I hurt you 
You nurture me 
Even as my touch 
Tortures anything I see 
Shall I go on 
Melodies and violin strings 
Sooth me gone 
I miss you 
Do you miss me 
Tragedians 
We’re beautiful 
Are you with me 
We’re a romance 
Yet no one leaves happily

Your Birthday

Once again the special day of your life is here
When mother welcomed her son to the world with cheer
The day you were born filled your home with gladness
Your mother's smile when cuddling you, a sweet caress

Then a baby boy, you're mindless of life's challenges
Look at that old photograph, you're full of sweet images
That mom can't resist to put you on her warm embrace
A picture perfect of giving each other's loving promise

The little boy has grown up into a young man
Together, a lot of question on your mind starts to run
Hold it back my dear one, don’t get too far
Life's a journey to travel, yours has just began

Just as anybody, you have passed trough tests
In every trials encountered, you took the courage to live
There were times you fell down and have gone astray
You stood again and color the world that was once gray

Now, looking back from where you have started
When life was given to you and the air to breathe
We thank the One above for the gift of you to us
Who continue to touch our lives, a lifetime to last

On your very day I say thank you for the memories
Glad I have enough for the rest of my life to reminisce
Happy birthday I sing to you from here home
The song is silent but hear my heartbeat for you alone

Originally written on April 17, 2006, 22nd birthday

YEARS OF GOLD

  Of times long past, we think back now . . .
  Those youthful days, before we made our vow.
  You raced through my being like no other,
  And made me fall in love with you.

  
  Our wedding day brought thrills anew . . .
  Those anticipated hours of being united with you.
  We held each other for the very first time,
  As man and wife, we now were.


  As we settled down together we had more joys . . .
  Girls for you, and then a boy.
  I felt your loving touch again,  
  As I held each one for the first time.


  Those were the days of our trials and strife . . .
  We had to work hard, as husband and wife.
  Our children grew tall in those days,
  Forever being molded by our love for each other.


  Now they have families of their own to raise . . .
  We watch their children grow with a grandparents' gaze.
  Oure lifetime of love has proven its worth,
  In the smiles of our children's children.


  The Lord has blessed us with these years of old . . .
  Yes, they truly are years of gold.
  Today, as we look back on them I realize,
  That each day, you made me fall in love with you.

BETTER TO HAVE LOVED

Little song in my heart
A tuneful melody,
Sings of love not lost 
But gone to somewhere else instead,
Sings not of our loss,
Or of the tears we shed,
But of a tiny light that shone
And guided us so well,
That grief feels inappropriate, 
It is praise we should give now.

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"

For my dear wife

For my dear wife,
On this Usual Day,
I write you this poem,
In my own special way.

I wanted to tell you,
In words of my own,
You're the most precious person,
That I've ever known.

You're the prettiest Girl,
Than any I've seen,
Your body Is flawless,
So Slender and lean.

Your eyes Have that sparkle,
That I can't live without,
One day without them,
And I'd die theres no doubt.

And I just lose control,
When I glance at your hair,
That long beautiful stunning hair,
So perfect and rare.

You're the most caring person,
That I've ever met,
There's no one like you,
And I love you so much.

So hold me as close,
As you possibly can,
Cause now and forever,
I am your man.

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.

Reasoning Reason

Two days gone now
I write post priori and empirical
My life's purpose, and analytical
All love's solemn vow
For I too love the day of my birth
I too seek from life a noble worth

Was that innocense 
Alone, a child ready to believe all
It's told, upright still yet to crawl
The unbroken fence
Through, and find no limit in view
To be fullly ignorant without a clue

What else is freedom
Or all those abstract things we find
Impaled on the boundary of a mind?
O we dream so dumb
From birth to grave the fictive fact
Between a petal and flowery bract.

Like bowling pins, we 
The a priori logic up, but post event
For we know nothing nor can lament
Our blind new apostacy.
The evening tides rises high O again
The sand castle builders labor in vain.

I ponder these when 
From boyhood I wandered to deep
Forest dark to seek and fell asleep
Where lark and doves blend
To sing a song unknown to all we ken
O I wanted to know its meaning then!

Why me, and me here
And how long before man and trees end
Their cycle, and that power we contend
To hide our one fear
How time escalates our fixed terminus
How all our difference is one same dust.

Birth tells me nothing
Except that life is a sweet random gift
I spend to enjoy and lose innocense thrift.
I wrestle the thing
The good and evil of our days exumed
The stench still sells if its well perfumed

I celebrate faith
For there is nothing else to praise today
All that falls to entropy is living clay
And sooner or late
If there is no terminus I yet cannot lose
He only has a chance who dares to choose.

In days

Although she’s only four 
She’ll be 5 in just days
And still making me whole
In so many more ways...
My every reason to be
So much larger than life
The best pieces of me
No matter what slice...
She still gets excited
By the smallest of things
And always a thank you
Whenever dad brings...
Something she wanted
Or nothing but smiles
With hugs and soft kisses
That last for a while...
She’s only four
But in days she'll be five
The heartbeat in me
That still keeps me alive...

Birthday tidings for my eldest sister

egad, you possibly exclaim come december first two thousand and seven
   five decades sped by at the blink of an eye
days of adolescence, and infancy  so tender and mild seemed like heaven
   such quick lightning speed of life prompts ye to go slack jawed well nigh.

whence boyce and (the late) harriet harris poured heartfelt glee
   patterson, new jersey pinpoints the birthplace arc with a life of relative bliss
role of newfound parenthood which eventually brought siblings totaling three
   this second born (and only bro) and a younger precocious and often envious 
sis.

the half century mark of being resident on earth
    most likely seems to deliver utter disbelief
especially when with a little bit of effort ye can remember life soon after birth
   from the one whose passage (mom) might still trigger momentary bouts of 
grief.

progression toward senescence forces greater awareness of mortality without 
choice
   this concept to confront the grim reaper most difficult challenge each of must 
face
taking stock of unique existential tapestry a weave of sadness and those to 
rejoice
   some seem to possess ability toward progression of aging with dignity and 
grace.

how to reckon with beast of burden  integrating ways to meet nemesis with a 
scythe
   a private challenge each of us must confront with our own battle ax
reconciling countdown with demise raises question of purpose being born only 
to die 
   yet some purpose driven meaning needs be found to enjoy existence to the 
max.

i, this middling progeny and sole male harris heir
   wishes to impart his own sage advice gleaned from his own psychic pain
hardly earth shattering merely express sentiments toward those whom we care
   despite less than stellar communication an attempt now to reach out in the 
main.

business of each our respective attendant various and sundry domestic kin 
   absorbs a good amount of daily energy and time
an effort clamors (on my part) to compose birthday note and bring at least a grin
   thru this poetry milieu of mine mainly thru stream of consciousness rhyme.
   
no matter that affection rarely demonstrably and volubly shown toward first born
lack of a close knit rapport during my emotionally fraught tumultuous earlier life 
   mostly likely bred measurable disappointment within sentient self to feel forlorn 
which past and present trials and tribulations which sensitivity prompt ye to morn
yet seclusiveness within mien kempf being does in truth harbor love well worn.

Without You

Before I met you my life wasn’t complete
There was always something empty inside
An acing sadness that needed to be full-filled
I felt a yarning to hold someone forever

Then one day without even looking there you were
You were in my life and everything was so simple
You were honest and caring
Carefree and not worried about showing me what you felt

Time went by and our love grew stronger
With every tender touch and every kiss
I knew I wanted you forever
No matter what I never wanted to you go

Now after all this time I love you more then ever
We have overcome some big challenges over time
There were tears of pain and joy
Our love has stood the test of time

Tonight is a special night for us
A night to hold in our hearts and our minds forever
An evening I wish would never end
A moment to freeze in time

As I hold you and look into your eyes
I hope you realize how much I love you
How much I need you in my life
Most of all that I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you.

Happy

        What is happy but an imaginary world where butterflies and faries 
occasionally fly around. What is happy but a star that you must wish upon to come 
around. How can you justify happy is it the way you smile and the way you pretend 
even though your not. You can feel it through your bones it's like a strange energy 
letting go. Suddenly you feel like holding your head up high, confidence is rising 
and the mood is set for you to fly high. A little bird traveling far from it's nest 
the reason is because everything is changing. It's not like before when hiding away 
was what was worth living for. Everything you do is like another experience and you 
try to go far away from where you usually travel. Sometimes you have to do it alone 
sometimes you can't there are friends who help you along the way and no you can't 
be afraid. It's life and it takes a strong person to be happy without any influeneces of 
the body. It's life and I don't need any man to make me whole it's my start and I will 
finish weather I am together or alone. It's life and though I may tremble it's me who 
will get up from the ground and dust myself off. I won't let anyone take the one thing I 
have been praying for away from my soul. Happy. It's where I want to be, it's what I am 
now. Happy all my dreams are in reach and I am glad that I can finally say it out loud. 
Happy from far away you can tell by the way I laugh at my mistakes, happy and I will 
continue to smile unless the devil decides to take it away from me. But for now I can 
honestly say that happy is what happy does and I am happy I can say it loud and hope 
that it doesn't jinx my current state.

Mates for Life and Forever After

Once upon a waning moon
What only nature knew would happen soon
A silent union had taken place
It all started with one embrace
A kiss began the life long quest
Two alphas face no bigger test
The wolves have waited far too long
And from their hearts, love spilled its song
A perfect harmony, composed by fate
Together forever, life long mates
The maker of the Alphess, her efforts in vane
Wants the Alpha gone, as long as she reigns
But the Alphess is strong and fiercely fights back
Her maker can only return the attack
The battle is constant and nearing no end
A possible scar that the maker can’t mend
A decision comes forth, it has to be done
A new pack to be made, and the alphas are one
In the den of the maker, a decree was announced
The union of the alphas indefinitely pronounced
Undying love between life long mates
A very welcome twist of fate

~*~My Man~*~

I can't believe this has happen, I can't believe this is true. I found someone 
special and that person turned out to be you.
Now we've been together for awhile and I have fallen in love with you and its 
making me feel like a child.
It takes me back to when I was young to when I found my first love.
You made me feel alive again; you fixed my broken heart that was broken by that 
guy who I now call my friend.
You're so handsome, so honest and so true. Falling in love with you had made 
me decide I would do anything to be with you.
I love you so much it hurts not seeing you but I believe in faith, love and anything 
that would make my wish come true.
I want you to stay with me because I want our love to last, I want to look towards 
the future and forget what was hunting us in the past.
You came into my life like a breath of fresh air I was so happy because you made 
all my bad thoughts disappear.
Damn you’re so handsome I still can't believe that you're real. You made my life 
so 
much easier the day that you said you loved me.
Having you in my life is the best feeling there is because you’re my man, my love, 
my heart and the one I think I am meant to be with.
I cried for you and I am not afraid to say I did because that’s what my love for you, 
is not hiding what I truly feel within.
How can you be so perfect, so wonderful and there are so many words I can't 
even explain it.
I love you baby more than anything in this world, the day I told you I loved you I 
knew 
that you were meant to be my man. My life has changed completely and it's for 
the best and not for the worst thanks to you the dream about being in love with 
someone has come true. I want to be with you more than life its self has finally 
came through. 
I love you baby I truly do let this be the poem, which I explain how much I Love 
being with you.

I love Her

I love her more than words can say
And I know nothing will get in our way
I love her more than anything in the world
And I know she’s a blessing from the lord
I love her more than I can express
And could never love her any less
I love her more than anyone knows
And I know things will never get too low
Because I love her more than anything.

"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.

My promise to you

When you are sad, I will dry your tears
When you are scared, I will comfort your fears
When you need love, my heart I will share
When you are sick, for you I will care

You will feel my love when we are apart
Knowing that nothing will change my heart
When you are worried, I will give you hope
When you are confused, I will help you cope

When you are lost, and can’t see the light
My love will be a beacon, shining ever so bright
This is my vow, one that I pledge till the end
For you above all are my wife and best friend

These words I have written, speak of my love for you
From my lips these words spoken, shall always ring true
God has blessed me, and with your hand in mine
Both of our hearts, will forever intertwine

Into all lives, falls pain and sorrows,
I promise together, we will meet all tomorrows
Happy in marriage, honor and love
blessed in unity by God above

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."

Is the reason for this dedication
And I truly hope you have many more 
By showing everyone what you have in store

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.

ON A STAGE ABOVE THE BEYOND(For Ogunyinka Damola 2nd Year)

For Ogunyinka Damola Ebenezer 2nd Year Remembrance



Of Illness of a Damola
Of Death to an Ebenezer
Of Disappearance of a Linguist
Of Eternal Ascension of a Living soul
To the great stage above the beyond

Bred in a clergy clad family 
Of no one but the Ogunyinkas
With the last born baton in his hands
Exhumed from the city of "Iseyin"
A man of a baritone voice in 
The wilderness of a choir

We toiled and laboured endlessly
With our eyes very heavy of TDB
The core to which you keep vigil
Became helpless and hapless
Only on your back exit from the stage
It all re-echoes nothing but something
In a Play titled Vanity of Life 

For two moons rememberance we gathered
Not to mourn or weep today but to
Extol the uniqueness in him 
That liveth still in our heart
For he it is indeed a rare breed 	
A scroll whose rarity brings out veracity

To three scores in November we shall 
Continually gather every moon
To look Death straight in the face
And breath in fulfilment for a great work left behind
For we shall all come to join you in 
The stage above the beyond 
Promising to positively impact our society 
Like you did in your sojourn on stage
Adieu.

Our Picture Perfect Home (Angel of Sadness)

As you count the days, I’ve been gone
I wonder has much changed
Since I last left home
It takes so much more than I love you
And a kiss on the forehead every morning
To make a relationship work 
My hearts so sore and it keeps telling me
If I go on without you much longer
It’s going to make this companionship hurt
A warm hug won’t make everything better
But it helps, so forget these simple steps
Charms could never linger in this weather
For there is no such depth
Still you count the days, I’ve been gone
Still I wonder has much changed
Since I last left home
I know I can’t be there every moment you cry
But when I am, it makes your loneliness die
And who’s there to watch the children
Maybe tomorrow lady liberty will burn
I’ve come to find that you have much to say
It’ll be seven years of bumping heads in may
So whether it’s in my grave or beside you
That’s where I’m going to continue to lay
I wonder do you still count the days I’ve been gone
Tell me, has much changed
Since I last left home

Memories

Like veterans 
Home from war
I miss you 
As you were once
At my bedside
Like a stone 
I am forever rolling
Roaming 
toward a reluctant
Destination

Apologies my friend
I truly will miss you
I am sorry 
I was just wondering 
If i'd ever see you again
Here's to you my friend

Discomfort
The coldness
That warms us all
Do as you will 
But I became 
One to beg upon
Your absence
As you were once
Along side my bed

Apologies my friend
I truly will miss you 
I am sorry
I was just wondering
If I'd ever see you again
Sincerely

"Memories of a few good men"

Our Anniversary

The day that I met you,
I knew right then.
There would never be another,
never again.
My body is held captive,
but my heart is free.
Just knowing that I have you,
and that you love me.
The day you said “ I do”,
I was blessed from above.
You make my life so happy,
and so filled with Love.
Your beautiful brown eyes,
and you long black hair.
And your beautiful smile,
are all beyond compare.
Now on “Our Anniversary”,
I wish I was there.
I want to let you know,
just how much I care.
The love that I feel for you,
will grow with each passing year.
You are the only one in my life,
that I will always hold dear.
I need you more than life itself,
this is so true.
I want to let you know how very much,
“I Love You!”

Operation Dynamo

Exodus on a massive scale
1940 under assail
Three hundred thousand
Fathers and sons
Dunkirk evacuation
From the Hun
 
Armada 
Not seen for hundreds of years
To save our hero's, relay their fears
1500 ships of many sorts
Arrived on mass
Naval escort
 
British and French
Beached and battered
Quest to save Europe
Defeated and shattered
 
Queues of troops
Line the sands
Await their fate
Strands of man
 
Luftwaffe scream over head
Drop their cargo, inevitable dead
Explosions softened, by the Dunkirk sands
Saved so many of the waiting strands
 
Hail the sky, the RAF
Contained the hun from machine gun strafe
Their dedication in foggy skies
The ultimate saving of many lives
 
The aftermath of this unbelievable task
And the dedication of this incredible ask
Organisation on the grandest scale
For in the future we will not fail
To free Europe, another Armada will sail
 
" Dedicated to the many men liberated from the beaches at Dunkirk,
              who returned to do, what only hero's can do "

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

As If It Were A Secret

White on black sheets.
Covered in sweat.
They lay in silent defeat.
They lay no regrets.
The first and possibly the last time.
Though as it was love,
It still was a crime.
The air still hung heavy,
The scent still so sweet.
And through veils of magic,
Nothing could ever be so keen.
The radio stood silent,
CD still in it's case.
A embrace so relient,
A love totally safe.
Flashbacks flood the mind,
A mistake totally fit.
And I whispered to you your name,
As if is were a secret.

To Have and to Hold

You have some things
That I do not possess
That I need from you;
But will I be abased
And look to you to receive it
The way you will give it.

I have some things
That you do not hold
That you need from me;
But will you be humiliated
And look up to me to take it
The way I know to give it.

Half Marriages

So many marriages filled with sadness and sorrow.
Love is not of importance any longer.
Loneliness seems to be a common feeling.
Marriages are meant to be a whole,
They should be filled with love and joy.
What about the vows we spoke?
We agreed for better or worse,
For richer or poorer,
In sickness and in health,
And we agreed in the presence of God.
It was told, “That the two shall be as one”.
Years have now passed by,
And the vows have no meaning.
Marriages are only half
When the one returns to two.
Why can’t you love me wholly?
Why can’t you commit to me wholly?
You may give a hug or a peck,
You might say  “I Love You” every now and then.
But your bed is not my bed,
Your life is not shared with my life.
The television serves as your companion.
My words are silent to your listening.
You have buried my heart under the doormat.
Why can’t you love me wholly and completely?
I am lost and alone in a half marriage,
Sadness fills my aching heart,
Silent tears fill my eyes,
Half of me is now gone.
I know we are not the same any more,
We have changes in many ways,
But why should our love?
Is not love supposed to grow with time?
I want to be loved as me.
I want this pain to end, to smile again.
Why can’t we be as one again?

in real life

This is for the moments
And this is for the summer
This be my song
This be yours tomorrow

And this is for the laughter
This is for there after
Might you sleep for either
Might you be forgiving

Newly comes this day
And I can’t reach for my weigh
For long in time I wait
For what may never be

This is what happens in real life
This is for your silent nights
A little something
To keep your worries right

And this is for what matters 
When the story is no more
This is for the moments
This be yours tomorrow

Scion Rose

There's a rose that grows in the garden
It's a scion of exceptional stock
Problem is it's not hardy
So the wild keeps blooming about

But when a bloom from the scion
Opens, it is such a beautiful sight
The scent is outstanding exceptional 
It draws me out at midnight

Just to enjoy its present
To feast on the scent a delight
And touch the soft velvet petals
Glad that I chose this rose that night

Thee One Forever

Thee Embracement I feel with each touch
Incredible feelings I have wanted so Much
Wonderful feelings between You and I
A wonderful but wonder, could it be a lie
So I lay down my guard and open my Heart
And pray to Thee Lord that only Love will start.
Wishing two bodies could become One
With a tear that falls each after their done
Letting go to hurt from the past
And say a prayer to the future that it will last
Each hug you offer warmth to my Soul
A Love, One Love that the good book told
In cowmen yes we have with one another
In cowmen we have will you forever be my Lover
Forever and always may The Lord Bless You
In understanding that I’m fallen for you
A worm Heart is all I see so far It’s your Heart
That I will Forever need  
My Love my Sweet Love
I wish you could feel my mind
With the words its ok and you will forever be kind
My age you say it may concern
But with the right teacher I could learn
Patients I need and Wisdom I seek
I find in you the One to teach
 And all I say is in good faith and prayer
Because another Heartache I could not bear
So I leave on your mind this One thing 
This feeling now makes my Soul wants to sing
Just no that I could be The One, 
Forever One to Love You Completely

The Lathe

My mother on a day of marked memory
By this cycling page of history
Gave me then my first nativity
I have no next title to her legacy
That stretches my skin to cover
The etiolated sagging of time
That since childhood over and over
Stripped me of the strict sublime.
I am not deluded by denials ruse
This subtle crawling of grave
Nearer to my impotence to refuse.
I am still, all the rage is in the wave.

30 years together today
Sure does not seem that long
But time flies when your having fun
Its not always roses and sunshine
I guess its what you make it , that counts
You sometimes struggle with obstacles
that get in your way
Together you greet the challenges of a marriage
The tumbles you meet get easier together
Times are sometimes rough , but being a family
helps out
You look to the positive end of the stick and you survive
Happy 30 th anniversary to my husband 
Let's make it last some more years

Does He Still Love Me?

Years gone by since we said those words, “I do”.
We have had our good and our bad.
So many changes we both have gone through.
We have grown in knowledge
And yes our figures as well.
We have built a life, a family and a home.
We have gone through sorrows and lost much.
But no matter, we still have each other.
I wonder though, “Does he still love me?”
I am not the same as I was when we met.
I lack the elegant beauty on the outside,
And the years have taken its toll.
My heart and soul has changed as well.
In some ways we have grown together,
But we have drifted apart in many.
I wonder though if he loves me still.
I know it may not be the same
As the day he said, “I do”.
Could it be more or could it be less?
Does he still love me?
He still helps around the house,
Which is all right with me.
He still says, “I love you” but is he sincere?
He still gives a peck on the cheek,
But it’s not the same as he did years before.
I do not ask for much,
Only to show his love as he once did.
I wonder, “Does he love me?”

Our Love Tribune

We laid on the beach after frolicking around.
Sand on our bodies, in our personal playground.

Ocean waves encampasses our love.
The night sky is clear with stars up above.

You kiss me passionately, awaking my senses.
My thoughts teasing my carnal inhibitions.

You embrace me and hold me tenderly.
Hold me forever, this night I will remember blithely.

My heart soars, our love will be a tribune..
You are my love, my man in the moon.

Our Dream

  OUR DREAM (Dedicated to my friends at their Golden anniversary)

As we both lye down to be of rest
Fluffy pillows placed beneath our heads
A Dream begins for both as one
Blanket of envelopes the power of red

In this dream, they gathered all 
To the showing of honor and cheer
Toasting with laughter hugs with a smile
All of our friends we collected through the years

Children so beautiful all in a row
 Masterpiece to the eyes that have vision
Each holds the link to strength we call family
Placement of love in the heart no incision

Can you believe this is what we have built?
 50 years of the teaching and learning
Experience life in magical ways
 Kiss on my cheek, I glow, flames still burning 

A celebration they say is in order
 Lifetime achievement for what we created
 Values, Respect, Commitment and Trust
Just a few words held strong, never faded

Night in shining armor is I
Queen of the castle your throne
I defend always my soul mate
In this life together etched in stone

Hummingbirds flying resting on flower
To observe life’s beauty has gifted
Take a soft petal home for the warmth
 The cold sets in winter, desert, after Christmas

At the end of my day I find refuge in knowing
My best friend is the one I have chosen
Relationship manifested from a dream we both had
 50 light years away we remain together frozen

As This Dying Day (from My Secret Sin)

Are you as lovely as this dying day
Because I’m weak, I’m fragile, I’m so weary
Yes your as precious as living this day
But I’m weak, I’m fragile
My tears fall innocently packed with fury
Are you as lovely as dying this day
I could never live this life forever and smile
I beg of you all, bless “Never” upon this child
Maybe it’s comfort in your arms that’s so warm
Kisses so sympathetic, yet frowns burn in such charm
As we tiptoed in harmony
How did your soul become so fond of me
Are you as lovely as dying this day
Because I’m weak, I’m fragile, I’m so weary
Yes your as precious as living this day
But I’m weak, I’m fragile
My tears fall innocently packed with fury
Are you as lovely as this dying day
I’ll console you warmly, 
Gazed upon eternal memories of us
I’ll crumble 
But we’ll remain humble through memories of trust
How far are you from this one isle
Step by step
It’s seems you’ve been coming forward for miles
I don’t want to live this life
And regret not asking you to be my wife

A Year Has Gone By

Though a year has gone by
And when we felt there were no more tears to cry
The memory of that day haunts us still
We still ask why and always will
How a clear blue sky could fade that day
And when it all cleared so many were lost
Such a price to pay
And now a year has gone by
And we come here to once again say good by
 The memories still brings tears to our eyes
It's time we moved on we realize
 It's time to cease to ask the question why
 Bowing our heads in a prayer
 Knowing that they hear us some where up there
 And if you're looking down on all of us today
You'll see you're in our hearts each and every day
 And when our time here comes to an end
 Know we'll be together once again

Together Through The Years

Together through the years......
     you have traveled not only hand in hand,
     but side by side,
     soaking up the knowledge 
      and wisdom 
     from experiences and happenings
     which the sands of time have sent 
     drifting into your path
     on your journey through life.

Together through the years......
     you have watched and endured
     the temperament of mother natures' emotions
     as she:  watered you blossoming
     flowers with tears both of joy and sorrow;
     sent lightening showers of furry
     down to open the eyes of those
     who have forgotten
     she can take care of her own;
     and warmed the hearts and souls of many
     as she hung the sun brightly in the sky.

Together through the years......
     you have traveled many roads
     and walked on many paths.
     You have shared laughter
     and tears, triumph and sorrow.
     It has been 50 years
     and you have traveled together,
     lovingly side by side,
     together through the years.

My feelings

You were in my dream before I even knew that there was a you and me,
Now I can't wait to see your smile,
When I wake up each day,
It makes it worth while with the kinda love you plant inside, 
Specially with a heart so empty as mine.
All your soft tenderness is the one thing that I don't wanna miss,

What you wrote to me made feel so good but emotional lol I dont like sounding 
like a kid. lol But its true.
You were the one I asked god to bring me.
A beautiful woman who shares my desires, goals, dreams, and most importantly 
Vision in life. I prayed to God that some where in this world is my soulmate. I was 
wrong God brought me to heaven to find my true love and thats were I saw you 
my darling.

Happy Anniversary

It was a chilly winter’s day,
not unlike today, in fact
the snow, well, it had already been shoveled;
making the roads clear, as my thoughts and
as the view of you.
I recall waiting; anticipation and anxiety were overwhelming.
and all of a sudden there you were.
The image remains a constant picture in my mind.
For no other art is needed as I possess the most beautiful
painting in the world, right in my thoughts.
So beautiful, there was no one else around;
though there were others there.
And I can remember speaking, but don’t remember what was said
as your image controlled my mind and your heart
still controls my heart; I am forever yours.
We were one. We are one. We will always be one.
And our garden, together we planted, it has grown.
Through nourishment and love our seedlings thrive.
They capture the essence of love and the creation of two
when they make one. Thank you, my darling.
You have given me all of these things
And have made me the richest man on the face of the earth.
I love you and Happy Anniversary!!

Promise

He's out there
On the battle field
Each day, in the hot unforgiving sun
It's your anniversary? 
Too bad, no one cares
Get out there and fight
Fight for your life
Fight for the life of your country
But deep down he is fighting for his freedom
The freedom promised in 1776
The promise he hasn't seen
Since he left eighteen months ago
He left his home
His life
His true love
Because he thought
That this is the way to serve his country
But what he doesn't realize is that
The country he serves
Pays more money to get cable, to watch the Superbowl
Then they pay in donations to the army
To him, to his life, to his survival
So next time you make a donation
Think of him, the lone soldier
On his anniversary
Alone on the field
Serving his country rightfully
Waiting for that promise...

Leaving

I miss you like there's no tomorrow
I clench my chest to sooth my hearts sorrow
My head spins round and round
The reason He chose you cannot be found

My eyes water when your name is spoken
Your death, has me awoken 
These salty tears stream down my face
Life is going at a too fast pace

I ask God every night and day
I pray, I pray, I pray, I pray
My house is quiet with you gone
I just don't know what went wrong

My knees shake at the sound of your name
My life will never be the same
Nightmares wake me up each night
I can never reach you, when you're in my sight

You left my world a bitter and alone
My life is harder then a stone
So I loose, you win...
So let me be, let this darkness close in

Your Tu' Lips

You… can send me Roses
And cards with Sonnet-Stories
You… buy me Bouquets’
But there’s one Plant, I need Each Day…

It’s something… You, Yourself have to Bring
And must never stop it Blooming
It’s something You just can’t Ship…
… It’s Your Tu’ Lips

I like Orchid-Arrangements
And every Posy, You ever Sent
Get Bluebonnets… when You’re Out of Sight
But, only One Pick is my Favorite

The Scent of a Sweet, Warm Breath
Petal-Soft, and Passionate
I just want to Sip
The Nectar of Your Tu’ Lips

No Wildflower, got the Power
To Out-Whip… Your Tu’ Lips
Your Love Feeds… My Taste-Bud Needs
and the Dew, that Drips… from Your Tu’ Lips…

Honeysuckle, is Fine
Give Me Violets and Petunias, Sometimes
Sunflowers… May Follow You Darlin’
… but, You’re the Bulb, in my Prize Garden

That Grows in Sunshine or Shade
The Kind, The Good Lord Made
And I’ll Never Walk by nor Skip
… a Kiss, from Your Tu’ Lips…

The Day We Were Wed

Ten years have past since the day we were wed,
till death do us part is what we said.

We’ve faced all challenges both good and bad,
happy times and some that were sad.

We’ve had our share of quarrels and fights,
experienced many sleepless nights.

She has been there for me all along the way,
so by my side I pray she will always stay.

She has made me the man I am today,
my best friend I am happy to say.

I want to be as good to her as she is to me,
hope I am the best husband I can be.

Many laughs and two kids later,
I could never imagined anything greater.

Because of how she has changed my life,
I am forever proud to call her my wife,

I’ll never forget the vows we said,
or the day we were wed.

Love of my life

Love me forever more, give me your heart to
place in my protected soul of love for you.
I will reassemble the shattered muscle which
beats ever so slightly to provide you with the
life you live for me. Dying for you would
selfish of my soul, living to love you would
be selfish of my heart. Enter into my heart
with a light-foot to gently ease my pain away.
Love me unconditionally and never let the
flame of our burning love candle fade away.
Rescue me from the blindness that selfless
love causes. Be the air that I breathe to keep
me loving you every second of the day. Be the
love of my life until my life is no more, then
guide me to the gates of heaven so I can shine
my love for you for all eternity.

Graduation

We have finally made it
Through this last year
Now we must face
Our deepest fear
On our own we must go
This wheel of life we must steer
Life is yet to come
It has finally just begun
Our lives now depend
On choices of thy own
Now one can’t afford
To sit around ad get stoned
We must make choices
That are very difficult
Yet the right one will reveal
Awards as a result
Your future is what
Only you make
Everyone makes
Colossal mistakes
Yet as y you grow older,
If you can believe in your ability
And not think the world is on your shoulders
You will lead
A life filled with joy
And rewards, yet this only happens
When one is employed
You choices from today,
And onward into the years
Will undoubtedly reveal
How your life will be
Just so long as you don’t
Piss it away, and you just wait and see
For you’re the one
Who may change the world
Just lead a straight line
Don’t follow your horde
Prevail you may
Yet if you shall fail
Pull yourself back up,, for that job you dream of
Is not unreachable
You shall find, after you get that job
That your check has always
Been in the mail

Supreme Love

Everything is your kiss so divine and sweet
A touch of your hand is my only desire.
Our bodies embrace and the Angels sing.
My love is strong and till end of time.
Your face envelops my eyes of a dream.
A dream that is for real and forever kept.
Deep in my heart and soul, cherished so.
Every day our love is here and now.
Every year it grows beyond any limit.
My spirit commands that I love you dear.
My arms await the next embrace we share.
One sweet kiss from you is my eternity.
I pledge to fulfill our loves hold and more.
For you entered ecstasy into my design.
For you my dear are my love supreme.

"THIS IS WHO I'LL BE!!!"

This is who I'll be
The one who wipe away all your tears
The one who understands everything about you
The one who's there for good times and bad times
This is who I'll Be
Your very best friend,never turning my back on you
The one who will always love you
The one who will never ever stop loving you
This is who I'll be
The one with no unbroken promises
The one who keeps you completely satisfied
The one who makes all your wishes and dreams come true
This is who I'll be
The one who's faithful and true
The one who makes you smile without saying a word
The one you're always thinking of
This is who I'll be
The one that give you NO doubt when it comes to real love
The one who show you that you can love again
The one who treats you like a lady
This is who I'll be
The one that knows how to make love a forever lasting experience
The one who makes you feel very special
The one who's not about lies,drama or playing games
AND THE ONE WHO YOU WILL VERY PROUDLY SAY YES THAT'S MY MAN
NOW THAT'S EXACTLY WHO I'LL BE!!!"

And with this ring I will bind
A love that is true

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

For my dear wife

For My Dear Wife,
On This Usual Day;
I Write You This Poem,
In My Own Special Way.

I Wanted To Tell You,
In Words Of My Own;
You're The Most Precious Person,
That I've Ever Known.

You're The Prettiest Girl,
Than Any I've Seen;
Your Body Is Flawless,
So Slender And Lean.

Your Eyes Have That Sparkle,
That I Can't Live Without;
One Day Without Them,
And I'd Die There's No Doubt.

And I Just Lose Control,
When I Glance At Your Hair;
Those Curls Are Just Stunning,
So Perfect And Rare.

You're The Most Caring Person,
That I've Ever Met;
There's No One Like You,
And That I Can Bet.

What Attracts Me The Most,
Is Your Sweet And Kind Touch;
You're A Gift Sent From Heaven,
And I Love You So Much.

So Hold Me As Close,
As You Possibly Can;
'Cause Now And Forever,
I Am Your Man.

BACK IN TIME


Do you remember back in time
when life was so beautiful,so calm?
when things were not spoiled by technology
when people could see each other often?

Then days came when  life is fast,
when horizons above us is hard to stare,
when the noise and traffic,and the digital
world takes power...

Do you want to go back in time
and think for a minute what is there
to remember,to appreciate or reject?
Maybe you do,or maybe not,
it is always your own choice.

Life teaches us what it should,
our discovery of the future
being good or bad for us,
to help or to destroy,
what do you believe the most?

And here comes the robot,
dressed all in silver and wires,
only that the wires are not visible,just the metal dress !
And it is this technology that matches you with the robot,
can't   the  humans see?

Not that I do not like progress,yes I do!
It is just the sadness of leaving a world behind us,
somewhere that we cannot find the way again
and the trail to bring us back.

High Pair

There were secrets we shared
And tenderness dared
We were so scared in the night
We told us we cared
Using fast falling words
We never heard
As quickly we paired in delight
So hurry and scurry
and worry no more
Today is tomorrow 
and time we can borrow
With no room for sorrow
Our loving  felt ever so right
So together forever we fight
for sharing a life as we might
Truth in a moment of light

My life and you

You're my life, you're my love,
You're my shining star, you're my beautiful dove,
I love you so much, you don't even know,
When I think about you my face starts to glow,
I'm so blessed to know you,
Just talking to you makes me feel less blue,
I've always wanted somebody like you in my life,
Someone who's kind, adorable, and usually very nice,
But I never stop to think,
That what God's given me could be gone in a wink,
It's never really occurred to me,
That God could easily take you away from me,
So while we're here, let's make it great,
And whatever happens, is up to fate,
Because if there's one thing in this life I know is true,
It's the simple fact, that I LOVE YOU

Dear Love,

There is no life without you. Without you there is emptiness, sadness, and pain. 
How can I live a day without you? I cant because if you are not there by my side, I 
cry, all turns to gray and darkness fills the sky with tears.
My life without you is nothing, my life without you is empty. My love for you is 
eternal, and it will always be there for you as so will I. You gave me the key to your 
heart, I locked it in mine and I promised to never let it go. My soul is powered by 
your love, the only thing in this world that keeps it alive, is you. Day by day it is you, 
that makes me smile, that makes me laugh, and inside makes me cry because 
you, and your love, is so special to me, you spark my life with joy. Every night I cry 
not yet a tear of sadness, but a tear of happiness. 
Ever since I met you, I never knew that love can feel so good, I never knew my 
heart could beat so fast, so strong. You have filled my life with happiness but 
most of all you have filled my heart with love. Before I met you I prayed and prayed 
and cried every night for someone to take my loneliness away, I prayed for 
someone to be my side and love me. But then I met you, you are more than what 
I prayed for, I never prayed for an angel, I never prayed for a girl as special as you. 
From when we met, you were no longer a dream, you were a dream come true, 
you were reality, you are my life... I could never ask for anyone else, or anything 
better then you. You mean so much to me, you are my everything, you are the love 
of my life, you are all I ever wanted. There is not a person on this planet that that 
can love me the way that you do, there is not a person on this planet that can 
make me feel the way that you do, and there is not a person that I even want to 
try, because it would only be a waste of there time. 
Life without you is pain, life without you is empty, life without you is nothing. I 
promise to never leave you, I promise to always be by your side, I promise I will 
always be there for you. I promise to protect you and I most of all promise to 
never, to never let you go and to always love you. I love you so much, I want to get 
married to you, I want to start a family with you, I want to spend forever with you by 
my side, holding my hand and look into each others eyes and say the words that 
mean so much “I love you” life without you is no life at all I love you.

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...

Fear of falling

Sometimes when I look down from a high building that is so far up I get scared. Oh please 
oh please don't let me fall because this can't be the end. The feeling I feel when I am 
riding down a hill my heart is racing and I just can't stay still.  I thought this was 
just a fear of mines, heights I just don't like. But if you saw me like I saw myself I 
felt my heart completely drop. I better hold on for dear life because it feels like i'm 
losing control, I have never been this afraid in my life maybe it's because I don't go 
far from where I am supposed to go. This is all new for me and I feel like it's my 
destiny to one day conquer this. But now, just for now I will stay as close as I can to 
the ground. I want to feel it touch my feet and I want to hear the sand moving. I would 
never want to be high enough so that I couldn't escape. It's a feeling on loneliness you 
just want it stop. No one can prevent that feeling of shock. I closed my eyes and braced 
myself for a huge storm as I fought the current in a battle that I didn't win. This is 
how it is in the world of feeling scared, there are all kinds of fears and we just have 
to live with it.

Always

I cannot remember yesterday
The days without you near
I cannot think of loneliness
It’s as if
I woke up and you were there

The lights eternal in the sky
Shone brightly there for years
Your love that so well holds my heart
Has trampled darkened fears

It was as if you were always a part
As if your heart, you always shared
I can’t remember times before
It’s as if
I woke up and you were there

So, life can’t be, there’d be no flame
If you could not share with me
As time permits us, our hearts dance
In love, which sets us free

A woman Like you

I was in a bit of a surprise to be with a woman like you...

Being with you is like a child being with his only and favorite teddy bear, he just 
want to hug it, kiss it, tell it you love it, and never let it go....

Everything about you make you the perfect woman for me in my eyes, my heart, 
my soul.....

Your personality is so wonderful to the point that I could talk to you about anything 
and never have to worry... which is what gave you my heart....

Your smile and the kiss of your lips is like I been kissed by an Angel.... and that 
what are too me....a blessing....

Just looking into your eyes is like I'm in heaven and could fly or do anything in the 
world with my wonderful girl... you by my side... which is what made me addicted 
to you... 

Just you being you make me feel like I have found the perfect woman whom no 
one in the world can take me away from cause she has my soul....which is why I 
love you....

Sometimes I wonder why out of all the men in this world you chose me.......

But whatever it was that made you do it, makes me thank the lord everyday for 
having you and he knows I am forever grateful for having a perfect woman like 
you who i can spend the rest of my life with....

Happy Anniversary

                     
It has been a long time since I asked you to share my name,
   Thirty seven years from a glowing ember to a bright burning flame.
I can remember seeing you back then,
    How you’d just sit and practice writing your new name over and over again.
No one thought our love could ever grow,
    Most gave us only a year but they didn’t know.
They didn’t know our hearts or the love that caused this burning desire.
    They didn’t know that one little spark could kindle such a warm burning fire.
And now when we speak it’s two voices as one.
     And always wanting what’s best for the other is how this is done.
Compassion and pain are the things that make a love grow.
   Loving someone is compassion and feeling their pain is letting them know.
Like any marriage we’ve had dark clouds that loomed up above.
   But they weren’t strong enough to diminish our forever love.
A Norman Rockwell painting we were not and that is for sure.
    Family Circle cartoon would better depict us and the life we’ve had to endure.
But looking back brings a smile and that’s what it’s all about.
    And would I do it over again in a heartbeat without hesitation or doubt.
Happy Anniversary to you, my Darling, the Love Of My Life.
    With gratitude and love I thank you for being my lady, for being my wife.
I Love You

Three Little Words

You ask me to marry you 
and I said yes! 

Now I wonder if it was for the best. 

We argue and fight so much it seems or is 
that only in my dreams? 

What is real and what is fake or is 
what we did a big mistake! ! ! 

Do you love me like I love you or is it 
a phase we are going through. 

We say words that hurt us so we would 
be better off to let it go. 

I love you with all my heart, but the 
things we say are ripping us apart! 

What can we do to stop the pain it's 
been nine years now and 
it's not a game! 

I haven't won and neither have you 
if only we can see our dreams 
have come true. 

I have you and you have me and 
together we will always be. 

Instead of the painful words we say I
suggest to you we do is 
just say.... 

I LOVE YOU! ! ! !

UNREPLIED

Question of me, 
vanquishing the existence, arises again.
At times life repeats the horror.
Insufficiency of a heart builds an orphanage, 
I play the game, then flounder. 
Poison is spreading -
the myth of absurdity overtakes,
truth breaks into splinters

Me and my dialogues with life speak of celebration
in vitro. Taking off the camouflage.
The body prints the friction,
but the descent of dark 
and other questions remain unreplied. 
The soul suffers in a hole.

All the pretty meanings,
become meaningless when time abstracts,
the stone prevails upon the daisies,
sin and desire go for a reward.
The door does not open,
I put aside the beholder
and give a voice to dead tongue.

I can't escape

     Running around in a maragoround, Trying to figure out my life. I can't escape so I 
have no choice but to sit here and figure out why I am so down. Is it because I have no 
friends, Is it because this life keeps repeating the same stupid things? Is it because 
when i'm lonley I go intoxicate myself over and over again. Is it because when life beats 
me to the ground I am so weak that it's so hard to get up. Maybe it's because they just 
won't quit telling me to my face that i'm great and behind me that she'll never make it. 
Is it that reason? No one has faith, Even I don't believe that this life I can escape. I 
am alone, and lost and sometimes I feel like i'm not even alive. When will it be over I 
think to myself constantly. I am truly alone and I cry. I can't escape I scream out to 
everyone but they ignore me. I'm better off dead, I can hear my head whisper and then 
puff i'm gone and even the sad letter I left behind is ignored.

New Beginings

Now that the past is gone
And the memories are one
My path is love
My destination your arms

Although some memories
Hold so much pain
I must learn to face my heart
It will never be the same

As I walk along the seashore
I hear a seagull cry
And I wonder if there's anymore
To cause this heart to die

But then I met you
And you turned my life around
I know that in you
The love of my life I have found.
