My Cat

I love my cat.

She has 4 legs 

and a tail 

and nice ears 

and a cute little nose.

She is gray with black stripes.

Her eyes are kinda green

kinda yellow.

I don't know what colour this is?

Her name is Bast.

This is the name of a very pretty cat goddess

who lives where the pyramids grew.

When my cat is happy she purrs.

So do I.

My cat is soft and warm.

My cat likes to eat food.

Right now I am feeding her special food for young cats.

She likes this better than the last stuff.

She eats all day long.

I do too.

If I become fat

or she becomes fat

I will cut down on our food.

My cat also likes to drink water.

So do I.

I got rid of her cat bowls.

Now she uses the same bowls I do.

I think this makes her feel extra special.

When my cat wants to play outside

she meows and scratches at the door.

This is how I know if she wants to play outside.

My cat poops in the neighbour's yard

so I don't have to clean her litter box too much.

I love my cat.

If I was a cat I would marry her.

We could have a honeymoon in the park.

I would dance around

and watch her climb trees.

At night my cat sleeps on top of me.

If she moves around too much

she wakes me up.

This makes me mad.

But she doesn't care.

She just looks at me.

And looks at me.

Then waits for me to fall back asleep

so she can sleep on top of me some more.

But I still love my cat.

Very much.

Even if she makes me mad sometimes.

But only now and then.

She creates far more happiness than anger.

I suppose this is how it is for some married couples?

Cats are great.

I wish more people had a cat like mine

because then everyone else would be happy just like me.

One great big happy world

filled with peaceful thoughts instead of so much pain and war.

I hope she lives a long time.

When she dies I will get another cat

because they are so nice.

And when I die 

I will meet all of my cats

up in heaven.

I love my cat.

And she loves me.

Paranoid love

Tell me that this fear is just paranoia in my mind, 
we're not straining, we're not struggling, 
we're not sinking, we're just fine. 
I'm not perfect my dearest, but damn have I tried, 
and I'll try harder but I know I'll have the same results every time. 
Do you want me all the ways that I am? 
With all the struggles and the tears and the clinging to your hand. 
I fear your getting further and Im left on the shore to stand, 
watching you in the distance with a bullet in my hand. 
Tell me all this worry, its just clutter in my mind, 
tell me not to worry that we're doing just fine. 
Cause Im scared to run you off and I feel Im falling deep. 
And Im so frightened of these thoughts that its getting hard to sleep.
All I know is that the heart wants what it desires, 
because of you the match inside has turned into a fire. 
And I feel the broken glass thats sticking from my skin, 
Wondering if you'll remove the pain or push it back in. 
My hearts frantic wondering if you feel the same, 
pleading and begging for more than just a saying, 
but to feel and to see that im not alone, 
with being in this love thats overwhelming. 
Once I told you that we didnt have a spark, 
but you were lighting up and I was sitting in the dark. 
And this fire, this blaze its wrapped in desire. 
Im terrified to lose you, I think I might die or, 
maybe disappear from all the pieces falling out, 
im going crazy but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out, 
and I cant explain to you why I just need to hold you close, 
why every time you leave Im scared to let you go, 
why these tears are building up behind my eyes, 
all I know is that the heart wants what it desires 
and it desires to be your wife. 
So tell me in my panic, that your words are true, 
tell my my dearest what I mean to you, 
tell me that this paranoia is all within my mind 
we're not struggling, we're not sinking tell me we're just fine

Myriads of Umbrellas

Myriads of umbrellas like I’ve never seen floating upward brilliant red, yellow, pink and green. Many happy thoughts must be in the springtime breeze, or bright hope could not ascend high above the trees! Opened up, hope shelters us from the rains of gloom. Losing sight of happiness would be mankind’s doom. Peace and love must guide our thoughts so we might see rise myriads of umbrellas through all earth’s blue skies! In 7/5 Trochee, rhyming style poem Written 2/26/2014 by Andrea Dietrich For Visual number 4 shown in the SYMBOLISM : THE UMBRELLA Poetry Contest of nette onclaud

ON THIS DAY

All of my thoughts and emotions
All of my attention and affections
Everything from adolescent to maturity
The search for special one was launched
I became the interviewer
And all the elegant became my interviewees
Hoping for something special

So, on this day
I just want to give you me
I want to give you all the attention in the world
I know you’ve seen the color of my love
Embrace yourself love
Coz on this day
This you’ve never seen
And this you’ve got to see
The whole world will seem like you and I
And all will happen on this day

So on this day
I just want to appreciate you
And let you know that
No present is more than a present 
Of having you present in my life
No rose can arouse me more
No other brown chocolate can change me
From being there for you with you

On this day
As for promises made can be broken
As for everything said can change
As for our love is eternity
As for words written will remain
And for our love so special

Yet this day may pass 
But as for our love will remain
Memories shared will remain

So on this day
I just want to say
You’re what have been missing in my life
Coz, life only makes sense when you know
There is someone worth living for
And for me, you’re the one

So, on this day
I will give you what you can never 
Find anywhere that is me.
On this day I want you to know that
I love you more

BUT YOUR EYES

Is there need to delineate 
Coz it’s out of this world 
Everything is just sizzling 
Nothing but fire works 
Symbol of that God took his time 
Truly, no words define your beauty 
The word is just scarre 

An offence it would be 
To pertain platinum to aluminium 
Coz you’re incomparable 
Since nothing defines your beauty 
And nothing comes close 
Everything about you dazzles 
But your eyes
The most appealing of eyes 

You’re attrahent 
And can’t be held liable 
If I am allured 
But in your eyes 
It’s where I get lost 
Coz I love touring in your eyes 
Where I see all the wonders 
And beauties within you 
But your eyes 
These eyes that tells million words 
Without the movement of lips 
These eyes that gets all the attention and affection. 

All you do is stare 
And those who look back 
Get dazzled 
But could never wonder 
What these eyes represent is pure elegancy 
Coz that’s what you are 
You’re precious 
You’re gorgeous 
Most of all, you’re elegant 
With the most appealing of eyes

Love in my veins

Your love flows through my veins
like the Nile River flows through
the sands of Eygpt.
Love flows through my veins
like rivers that break off into endless streams
and water the gardens of the green stems
of torn covered rose bushes.

In my veins, you flow, as a sparrow
flies through the blue skies in beauty.
You are the blood that flows through my veins
and later settles deep in my heart
and embraces me with a hug of intimace.

Love flows through my veins
like endless notes played by the sweetest composer
along with his private orchestra playing a lovely melody.
Rivers, streams break off and flow into lakes and oceans,
Like my veins that lead to my heart,
you are always there flowing through my veins.
Your love flows through my veins.

My sister's Smile

My sister’s smile

Fourteen years ago, my sister founded something, something powerful, something she wore everyday, a smile. A smile that could defeat anything that was against her and make everyone around felt nothing but joy. My sister had a disease, there might not be another tomorrow for her but she did nothing but carpe diem; enjoy every single moment to the fullest. I can barely remember everything that passed during that time, I was just four years old but it is impossible for anyone to forget such a unique and beautiful smile. One day she had to do analysis, another day she needed to take about 10 medicines and the next day she was in chemo, this process repeated itself by several months and I was amazed because not a single day passed where she didn’t give a smile. Most of the days she had to go through intense and painful tests so she can get better and believe me they were extremely hard, but she had something that motivated her, a kind of award. She had a little book that was full of happy faces stickers of every single color, size and shape. She loved the shiny ones because it meant not only happiness; there was a little extra that made her feel so good. She wrote on a notebook her daily treatments and she leaved a little space so when her hard day was over, she can put the sticker on the blank space she left previously on the page. She filled about 240 pages with happy faces and every person that went to visit her read the whole notebook and left the place with a smiley face sticker on their forehead. It is a unique and simple daily motivation she had and it turned out that it worked really well for her. Many people find happiness with material things such as new clothes, accessories, cars, luxury things, and etc. They forget that the little and simple things have the most impact in their life. My sister’s happiness was represented by a simple smile and most of the persons that she knew and where present during that time had received that gift she founded one day. Through hard times and sad days don’t forget to smile because one single movement from your mouth can bring the most powerful feelings that can defeat almost everything that stands against you. Just like my sister, she founded her smile and it turned out that it worked really well for her.

Being you

Being you

Accept yourself
That’s all that I can say
Let your inner voice tell you
The way to live your day
Do not be hard upon yourself
That never did no good
Just be happy, never worry
It’s foolish that one should.

Love yourself
Cause you’re a ‘one off’ too
No one else can play your part
Nobody can be you
It’s a lovely world we live in
Let it seep into your soul
Then when you feel at one with life
Twill get you feeling whole.

Most people call me crazy
But I love being me
I do not care what others think
I only like to be
To be this way, it is my right
A gift sent down by fate
I’m so I’m happy being me
Each day to me is great.

I Do Believe

"I Do Believe" 

The purpose of LIFE is to {Living In Faith Ever} 
to enrich God within us 
to an optimum level 
so that We as Humans 
can be guided by God 
to fuel out brothers and sisters 
with the same driving force 
to connect with the living God, 
to His existence and 
to See the Invisible, 
Believe the Incredible, and 
to Receive the Impossible 
to our everlasting journey 
to Heaven.

The Hypocritical Christian

I am the hypocritical Christian.
I say I follow Christ,
But I'm still consumed by my demons.
I go to church on Sunday,
But I refuse to invite someone back.
I want to serve on mission,
But I'm too afraid to act.
They think I read The Bible,
But I just fall asleep in it.
They think I'm positivity and smiles,
But underneath I'm death and addictions.
They think I'm clean and pure,
But I'm broken and mistaken.
I say I'm not worthy of His love,
But Jesus will never let me be forsaken.
I pray long prayers,
But inside they're empty repetition.
It might look as if my faith is strong,
But my core is too easily shaken.
I say the things I'm supposed to say,
But don't follow His actions or obey.
I speak the truth the church wants to hear,
But deep inside on matters I don't know what to believe.
I walk in shame as if I'm not good enough
To be loved by God and saved through Christ,
But there is nothing I could ever do to earn His peace;
It's a free gift.
I accept;
Now forgiven, changed, and released.
Thank You God,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Holy Spirit!
In Jesus' Holy Name,
We pray,
Amen!

FINALLY HOME

We'll climb over paper mountains
Cross over distant seas
We'll give away our fortune
We will get down on our knees
We'll be analyzed and scrutinized 
Receive training from the best
But until at last you're in our arms
We will never rest
We will never rest

And...
We're dreaming of the first time 
We will see your face
Such a sacred moment
That'll never be erased
All the sacrifice worth it
None of it a waste
'Cause when this journey's over
You'll be in this place
You'll be home
Finally home!

Today we got our travel approval
We're packing up our bags
Been through highlands and valleys
We've overcome a hundred snags
Done things we didn't think we could do 
We feel so very blessed
But until at last you're in our arms
We will never rest
We will never rest

And...
We're dreaming of the first time 
We will see your face
Such a sacred moment
That'll never be erased
All the sacrifice worth it
None of it a waste
'Cause when this journey's over
You'll be in this place
You'll be home
Finally home!

Passionate Love

I want you..
And I was made just for you
I'll make love to you
All the night with you

Feel my heart that burns in fire
Look my eyes that full of desire
As our bodies ignite in passion
Our souls chain in a strong union

Carressing every part of you
Gives me satisfaction
Dancing in the hymn of love
That just the two of us can hear it loud

Nothing seperate me from you
No one could make me feel like the way you do
Our passion for each other binds us together
And our love for each other makes us FOREVER!

Sweet Music

                                  He sits
                          Softly Humming 
                 And seems to have no cares,
               Playing peacefully with his toys
                               For hours.

                                He sings
         Words that seem to stem from his heart.
                 Words that have no meaning,
                         Yet sweet they be;
                                  To me.

EMBERS OF TIME

Twists and big turns in the name of real love
Either it will mend or break a heart
If this feeling of love, its author is God
Involved persons then must render their part

He logs more on oceans and she on land
Friendship to sweet soulful romance, began

No phone-lines nor e-mails nothing advance
With only black pen and paper on hand
Both of them, grab take that one lifetime chance
Thirty five years now, they are on love dance

Skin gone sag, wrinkled. Hair now thin and gray
Holding hands while walking like good old days
Romantic dinners. Roses. Gifts and cards.
Hugs, kisses... "I love you", their darling say

Ageless enduring in embers of time 
Blazing better within embers of time.

Is It Worth It

Love can seem so happy and so wonderful
But it can hurt and take away from life too
You make me so happy and make me feel so special
But then you turn around and make me feel like ****
love can turn you into a whole new person
But you could change into to something great or something no one wants
Love seems so wonderful at first 
But spending my days not knowing if you want me or even care for me is agonizing 
Sometimes i feel like your lying to me but if i say that then you'll get mad again
Your such a loose cannon, ready to burst with rage and tears
Love is so temperamental 
so can you tell me....... 
Is It Worth It?

My Departed Friends

             Oh! Those whom I loved and cared that left this world
  Enjoying the bliss of heaven when my heart wreaths in pain
  Free from anguish and agony and attitudes apathetic and cold
Away from burning sunlight of hatred, ruthlessness and strain

My loving parents and my little sister departed one by one
The infinite mercy of the Creator granted them joy of heaven
 For me the luscious trees of love gave way to burning sun
       The path of life turned thorn infested, rocky and uneven
 
 The lustful demons of merciless world waiting for me on way
               My only weapon, my resolute, indomitable will
With God behind my relentlessness I conquered life in a sway
Lonely nights followed crowded days dreary, dreadful still

Then showered on me God’s sagacious and profound recompense 
Through love and compassion my beleaguered soul thrived
    On desert of life came the rain-filled clouds of loyalty of friends
    Roses bloomed, nightingale sang, life’s elegance revived

         But happy days are shorter than the morning dew’s life
You Manzoor, Arif, Marghub,.Nisar, Mehmuda, Ismat, Harry and Jo.
Who were spared the pains of this world of conflicts and strife.
Tranquility of heaven is your destiny, Aftab, Ferreira and Remigio

Your abode has elegant pink shadows and golden sunlight
    Fragrant rivers and gardens with flowers of colors unseen
Pebbles of emeralds and rubies present the sight’s delight
Gushing fountains, silvery lakes, hills and valleys ever green

 These bounties are rewards of goodness and your virtuous deeds
Your kindness, your compassion, and your illuminated soul
The Creator, most merciful and benevolent gifts beyond one needs
     More than lofty aspirations and much beyond your goal.

    Happy though I am for you I must still complain
                      Why you chose to desert me; why you left alone
The leaping flame of loneliness is my destiny again
The path to eternal bliss you took, to me you should have shown

Pursue Love

Pursue love,
the love that has no meaning,
the silver ports of the moon,
shine so bright,
that it blinds you in the twilight
she is beautiful and she is divine
she is the song sang by the sweet nightingales
in the gardens of worthy, overgrowning and blooming roses,
like wildfire grow tall and the thornes of the vines
tangle around her feet and drag her ever so slightly
throughout the garden of beauty.
As the roses lay along a table,
as she sits at the table
and she waits for me, the wordman
to come to the dinner table at the stroke of nine
and sit with her,
start a scene or two of romantic setting,
to pursue love in her name.
Love is around us,
the candlelight shines and reflects in her silk hair,
as her evening dress glitters and shines
and her bossom shows itself in the nightsky
as we lay together,
we pursue a dream together,
forever we live together forever,
as we stand upon the belcony of Romeo and Juliet's love scene
we swim in a pool of sweet divine care and love,
we swallow grapes and drink wine
hand and hand on Persian rugs and virgin white cloth sheets,
we dance to a simple, yet sweet Chopin's masterpiece
of his beautiful nocturnes,
which make such a sweet and romantic song in our heads.

We stomp out the flames
as we dance the night away,
and you lay in my arms,
and I kiss you upon your lovely head,
and you hold my hand,
and I hold you tight
never thinking of letting your love go away from me,
I would take my own life,
before I lose your love.
See us together,
it is a painting that lasts lifetimes,
that needs no touch-ups.
I care for you and love you!
Love me, I know you will.

My sweet and loving portrait lady,
who in reality is more beautiful than a fully bloomed rose
that sits on its green stem,
in the garden of beauty that sits outside my window.
Come up to my chambers
as I picked roses for you and pettles litter the atmosphere
as love's tension grows
and suspence brings us together,
let us make love tonight
seal the passion
and pursue love once and for all.

Then shall we wake with the first rays of the blazing of the morning sun,
I shall wake next to your beauty and glory,
and I shall point my attention to the heavens
and thank the Gods for sending you on the open road,
toward my chamber door, I call my heart.
Then we shall dress, and walk the pathways
in the garden of beauty
and I shall pick a bauquet of roses
and we shall sit by the lake and pursue our love
for one another
and nothing, not one earthquake shall shake us apart.

A Wise Father

A Father's advice to his son on his wedding day
``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

A Wise Father

My wise old father said to me
Be kind and gentle to your wife
And happy you will always be
Throughout the years of married life

Be kind and gentle to your wife 
For she is loving, soft and sweet
Throughout the years of married life 
Her trust in you must be complete

For she is loving soft and sweet
So you must never do her wrong
Her trust in you must be complete
An honest heart will keep love strong

So you must never do her wrong
And happy you will always be
An honest heart will keep love strong
My wise old father said to me.

A Beautiful Reverie

Here I lie beside you
My heart goes thump.thump.thump.
My soul dances inside you
Reveling in the texture of your own.
Electric and flowing 
The currents of our love
Glow like neon lights
Illuminating the hope in my eyes.
Though we're not moving
I feel so incredibly alive
Invincible to my past
Untouchable by all who lack
That gentle touch of when 
You lean in and brush my face
Your lips grazing my skin
Softer than a butterfly.
And then you gaze into my eyes
I fall into your depths 
Twirling like the autumn leaves
Melting into your smile 
Your soul reminiscent of summer.
You pull me into your arms 
And for a moment I'm lost 
Breathless and in awe
Staring in the face of pure exquisite love 
And there you are - holding it 
Glowing in the moonlight of my stare.
My heart beats - its drum pounding away
Echoing a song thats lost its words
I touch your cheek and smile
My hands cant stay away
My lips s l o w l y, draw near yours
Hovering, and then - 
Part, a soft warmth against them.
My eye lids pulling shut
Dragging me into a silent heaven
I pull away - and what seemed millennia
Lasted only a moment, a second in time
But this is our love
This is what you do to me
You make me invincible and fragile
Lost forever in a beautiful reverie.

A Gift of Red

He caught me one night,
As I shivered with cold,
His words drew me forward,
As hearts stories were told.
Stories of love,
Of passions so pure,
Of lifes deep regrets,
Yet...his good humour endured.
Here was a man,
Complete and unending,
A man with deep talents,
A man worth befriending.
Now what he pulls forward,
With  his poetic display,
Is the opening flowers,
In loves sweet bouquet.
A beautiful saviour,
Warm arms outspread,
My hearbeat grows stronger,
For my gift of Red.

A tribute to Red O'Mara

Peaches and Cream

She was looking my way, I had nothing to say,
Though I'd dreamed that this day would transpire;
With her beaux all around, why would she look at me
With such interest and playful desire?

She was heading my way, what on earth would I say
To the prettiest girl in the town?
And how could I bear all her sunshiny hair
Or her eyes, speckled golden and brown?

I thought, "This is the one! Mercy, here comes the sun!
If I stare, I shall surely be blind:
Though I be somewhat plain, if she choose to remain
I'd be last in the county to mind."

Then my eyes turned away as she sweetly did say
Pretty phrases I cannot recall;
And I mumbled replies, though they might have been lies,
Since I cannot remember at all.

Of that bright day in May but one thing I can say,
She was dressed in a soft yellow gown;
'Twas a lemony hue that was buttery too,
And with eight shiny pearls buttoned down.

Then I asked if she'd dance at the Cunningham's manse,
At the ball on the fourteenth of June;
She replied, "Oh, how good! Yes, I certainly would;
And I hope I shall talk to you soon."

What a wonderful day! Still with nothing to say
I just whistled an old happy tune;
Having primrosy dreams of sweet peaches and cream
As I counted the hours of June.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

No Proper Goodbye

 There was no closure of a proper goodbye. 
 I tried, but... 
 no reply. 

 Your body became limp and cold as 
 a corpse. 
 We froze alone 
 in different time warps. 

 My ambiguous stutters 
 wouldn't disappear. 
 They pinched as they burrowed 
 like earwigs in each ear. 

 My mouth opened slowly 
 to suck the words back in. 
 Then the dead revived 
 and embraced my skin. 

 My heart bloomed profusely 
 like first love's lilac. 
 With lips on lips 
 you took my words back.

Dare to Wonder

Dance to the rhythm of my heart
Can you feel the vibration?
Can you feel it from head to toe?
I listen…to your melody – a gift to unwrap
It’s a healing potion to this lonely man without a roof on his head
How can You craft such marvelous miracles?

*chorus*

Dare to wonder
What I’ve become…so numb
Dare to wonder
What I dream…not like some
Break free from wretched reality
Dare to wonder
How it feels to be…free!
Freedom has a high cost – it’s not free
Pay the price
Roll the dice
My prize to you is my love

You made me merrily sing from the start…
Can you hear me longing for you?
Can you elevate me above the disconsolate clouds?
I watch keenly at your performance – a dream come true
It’s GOOD LUCK in disguise – it took hard work, man!
How can you surprise me with your trippy talent?

*double chorus - both differentish* 

Dare to wonder
What I’ve become…so numb
Dare to wonder
What I dream…not like some
Break free from wretched reality
Dare to wonder
How it feels to be…free!
Freedom has a high cost – it’s not free
Pay the price
Roll the dice
My gifts of expressing inner love
Dare to wonder
What I’ve become…a naughty boy who loves
To cause trouble and what not
Dare to wander
In my eloquent dreams…wrapped up in wings of doves
I deliver it to you ‘cause you’re hot! 
Break free from plastic reality
Dare to wonder
How it feels to be…truly happy! 
Freedom is free – for us thankfully
No need to pay the price
Drop those silly dice!
My present to you is my peace I hand to you

~bridge~

We’ll rejoice all day long 
As long as we enjoy this song 
Dare to wonder
How I put it all together?
Inspiration is key – it’s like catching a light feather
And letting it float about in the swirling sky
I release my passion and write it down on paper
It’s merely a work of art –
It’s original from the young heart

Nerves x 9



Through the screen door her eyes rose with mine feverishly I rehearsed each romantic word in my mind caught in a tongue tie still desperately I searched luckily for me the spring flowers had just birthed along the leading pathway to the doorway of dreams I turned for one moment falling to my knees plucked nine white roses setting them at her feet still without a word sweat streaming down in beads I caught my first breath and quickly ran away.....

GRAND GARDEN WEDDING

Cherry blossoms stargaze as spring air comes; East and west cross at Bells of Ireland: warm and calm; Welling slowly to cede: tender sage thoughts, Upon two hearts link, after hundreds of sought and fought. Cathedral posts accent with ribbons of violets. Congregate white orchids grin alongside the aisles, Roseband sings tunes: forget-me-not to highest. Wearing her lavender gown,Heather walks with smiles; Clasp in her hands,tulip bouquet, guests she stun Her Lilac in tuxedo waits: eyes locked tight in knot Gentleness bestow from heavens, ever won Their iris fuse glued; love radiating allot Matching band's inscription: embroidered golden rings Baby's breath, a grand wish soon very soon, will spring.
NOTE: All bold words are different flowers.. :) I always love flowers. I am always fascinated of their beauty and charm but more than these I am inspired by them: philosophically and emotionally as well ... :D (c) Olive Eloisa 11:45pm June 24, 2014 Sponsor Cyndi MacMillan Contest Name GARDEN PARTY: VERB-alized NOUN-sense with FLORAL ACCENTS placed 2nd place.. :) to God be the greatest glory :)

Snow

Snow sprinkles the ground
 
as delicate as sugar
 
crystallizing the exterior with a romantic heritage
 
only found in the heart of a child's imagination.
 
Like happiness it can melt in your hands,
 
and like happiness it can grow bitter like the ice you slip on
 
Forming miraculously to the curves of the earth
 
hugging till the land soaks in it's providence
 
white like the pages I battle with
 
Falling so passionately you'd think it was falling in love with the ground
 
And when it lands,
 
A blanket of perfection
 
glistening the season to a crisp
 
gently the sun arises
 
"there's no where to go today,
 
I'm just going to sit and enjoy the magic."

Romantic

I try to be romantic and look into her eyes
She always seems embarrassed from my gaze she shy’s
I tell her she is beautiful her figure is so good
That she always looks and dresses just like a lady should

I’d like to get across to her how beautiful is her look
Somehow she is not happy for her self esteem they took
The only thing I want is her to be happy as she’s made
Not to look in mirrors or let the scales leave her dismayed

For on my arm she’s beautiful I feel so full of pride
Cannot wait to see her when she walks out as my bride
I know I will feel special for her love is what I need
To know that she’ll be with me brings me happiness indeed

So my beautiful lady look and see what I can see
Forget about the past build your future around me
I will long to hold you and love you till I die
So let me be romantic just love it don’t be shy

You really do deserve to feel so good about yourself
Any man who had an ounce of sense would have took you from the shelf
Yes you are oh so beautiful from your head down to your little toe
Just listen to romantic talk from the only one who seems to know

Colourblind

Philosophers assure us
that it’s all a state of mind,
from every thought that’s in our head
to the boil on our behind.

They say we are not truly real,
that all life is illusion,
but if there is no life or death
I can’t reach my conclusion.

So I’ll just stick to simple thoughts,
of laughter, love and bed,
for what’s the point of being Blue 
when it’s more fun seeing Red?

My Flower

I once held a rose in my hand
Nurtured and cared for;
It was all I had.

Content and satisfied I deemed myself,
For it held
True love indeed

From its stem to buds to roots
I could not find another to cherish,
And like a ferry
I was merry-go-around

I gazed at it nights and days
And even went out of my ways
To water and keep

How could such a flower,
Such a blossom,
Fall out of my grasp?

The flower was not for me to keep
Nor was it for me to nurture.
No, it was not my duty
For after all my efforts
It turned gloomy,
And i became moony
Like a wolf.

And i sought to fertilize my flower
Trying to keep it float,
Trying to make it love.
When my efforts weren't enough
I went berserk like a lion to its prey
But i failed to my dismay.

All i wanted was to watch her grow
And if that's what my flower does
I will be happy indeed,
A poor humble farmer on life's teeth.

I will be happy that my flower, I did not ignore,
I will never ignore;
Happy to say that my flower is in good hands
That she has plenty of land
And that that land
Is meant for she,

That such land is better for flowers
Than for keeping close at Home
Home
Where true love takes heed,
A farmer's Home,
Where true love lies indeed.

After The Storm

I watch from my bed as the wind howls, 
Twisting the trees into unnatural shapes.
Too much water falls from the sky, 
And cascades over swollen gutters,
To surround my house,
In a waterfall veil.
The wind howls and screams, 
As it forces it's way,
Through tiny spaces in my window panes.
Mayhem is outside my window.
And I am warm and safe
Thinking of you
With a smile on my face.
Nothing can take away
That I am loved by this man
With his song in my heart
He pulls me in tighter
As if to protect me with his words
And I am as filled with calm
As tomorrows sky.

I am in love.

Just You and I

Lying in bed
Just you and I

Closed off from the world outside
Just as it should be

Raindrops gently falling
Dancing on the window pane

We are wrapped tightly 
in the arms of our love

No words are needed
the silence is understood

There is a sense of peace 
in knowing that all is right 
In the world

I Love You

When I'm talking to you I feel so complete

but when I'm talking to him,

there's something missing;

I feel empty.

There can only be one explanation to this "butterflying" sensation...

I love you but you're taken.

Saying it like that is what awakens me to reality...

You need to know;

I have to tell you,

but what will I do when you reject me?

 

I know you're happy with the girl you've got but

I'm not happy without you.

He kisses me and misses me,

tells me he's falling for me but I don't need him like I need you.

He doesn't take my breath away but you do before you say anything.

I can't sleep without you

and when I can I can't help but dream about you.

 

You drive me crazy with the color in your eyes.

And if tonight you wanted to die,

I would die with you.

If you ever were sad,

I would cry with you.

If you were ever being hated,

I would fight for you.

I might be crazy to go after you but I've got to.

If it makes me insane to be in love with you,

then there's room in my insanity for you too.

 

There's a space by my side where you can stand all your life...

We'll never need labels like,

"husband" and "wife";;

Rings are just things you show to flaunt money.

Someday when your heart is stolen,

I pray that I can say I am the culprit.

10 years down the road..,

I won't need a preacher at a pulpit to verify my love for you;

I'll know that "I do" and inside you'll know too.

 

My poem may be corny but it's the best way I know to portray the feelings that I'm feeling.

I'm not one to wear my heart on my sleeve but writing poems like this isn't me either...

I'm pouring my soul onto this note.

I'm asking you to be the Grim Reaper and

take it as your own...

Put it in your chest instead,

that'll be its new home.

 

And if this feeling isn't mutual?

Well, that's suitable.

For, I don't expect your love but

I'd respect your love and if you would,

may you please accept my love?

Don't ever regret my love

or forget my love.

It's so strong,

I can no longer suppress my love.

One Day

These long and lonely days
Are very dangerous roads
Too much time for me to ponder
Can my heart carry this load
Plenty of time has gone by now 
Enough for healing to start
I can tell that to my head
But I don't hear it in my heart

This time is mostly spent 
On living in the past
Reliving happy moments
Over which now shadows cast
As I think of better days
Sweet memories as my source 
I realize with amazement
That I long to hear your voice

To hear you tell me softly
That everything will be fine
That your love for me was always true
And we can turn back the hands of time
But I know down deep within
That's only an empty dream 
For your love for me was never
As real as you made it seem

Although the love you showed me 
Restored my hope for things to be 
You soon shattered my newfound faith
And left me drowning, lost at sea
The belief in love you made me feel
That someone could be true
Was only just a mask you wore
This picture of happiness you drew

Only adding to my pain 
Are the tears you never shed
You do not mourn for what you've lost
Your heart for me unbled
Because in reality
Your intentions were concealed
You never gave yourself to me
Real love you did not feel
You did not want forever
You didn't want me to stay
You only wanted triumph
For this stupid game you play
So triumph I will give you 
But not because I'm weak
But because when all is said and done 
You won't find the joy you seek
You will one day look for love so true,
Asking God to hear your prayer
But all that He will answer is
My son, there's nothing there
You will cry and you will mourn
You'll dance the lonely dances
But soon you'll come to realize
You threw away all your chances
I may have been that chance for you
But that we cannot tell
Though one day you will wonder
"What if" questions will unveil
Was I the one that got away 
Did you throw away the best
Did your selfish ways cost you The One
When your heart was put to the test
Right now it's true I'm struggling
To change my point of view
To find that place in time
Where I don't cry for you
Where I no longer live 
In the place where memories exist
Where my love is something valued
Not just another name on a list

One day that time will come
I'll find the one that's true
Peace and joy will take your place
And I won't think of you
The grief I feel will be no more 
I'll be happy and be free
And though you may not know it now
But that's when you'll cry for me

If You See

If you see a heartless man,
feel sorry for him.

With that cold heart,
comes lonely.

If you see a man without love,
pray for him,

with that empty home,
comes sadness.

If you see a happy man,
be happy with him,

for a happy man,
can spread joy.

If you see a man with religion,
follow his lead.

for a man of God,
is the best teacher we have.

If sadness ruled the world

I f sadness ruled,
The world would be bare,
And none would wear a happy face.
Crying would be everywhere.
Hateful faces,
eyes pleading to be saved from thier eternal damnation,
no Jovial places
And when somone was happy they died.
Love would not exist
This is because the people would be happy
and you know what,everyone would love oly themselves.
Death would bring the ruler joy
Birth would send in to a tirade
And lovers running off to happiness
Would be caught and worked to the bone.
Narcissitic people would be the richer and that would make them all the sadder,
Their children would got to school and learn about times of despair.
that would shove the happiness down their throats.
so if one is always sad and never glad 
they would be favored in king sadnesses eyes 
So why not go and live in this hate filled kingdom,
With none to love but your sadness and yourself.

I love you, and I thank God for bringing you into my life.

The Shameful Hunt

I wish i could turn back time
stop myself from committing that crime
my heart is torn the more i think about it
nothing in the world will ever fit
i regret ever saying goodbye
and also ever making you cry
i wish those feelings would return
but i guess its my turn
to be the one whose feelings are crushed
and turned to nothing but dust
i wish we had made it together
maybe then things would be better
looking back those were my happy days
but now I'm nothing but a mere slave
to what my heart feels inside
from the truth that i fear
and no one else will ever hear
of the love i have for this girl
who throws my head into a whirl
whenever i take a step forward 
i always get brought back
seeing you happy is all i want
so for now i will stop my hunt
for the love that i want from you
that is nothing less then true
but trying to make you feel the same
that for me only brings shame

Love

my life long dream has come true,

it doesnt seem at all like you.

youre different, 

not the same,

you put me through a lot of pain.

but im willing to try again, 

life is different now, than it was then. 

i realize how much love i felt for you 

and there is not much you can do.

i have tried so many times, in so many ways,

to say how much i love you 

but there is no other way. I

ve said it to you, 

ive told you how i felt, 

im not sure you believe me 

i dont see

i dont know, 

so how can i feel like this from the get go?

im happy just to be with you, 

and if it werent true, 

would i be with you?

the time shall fly, 

while we're together, 

i shall not do what i did, ever, 

again. 

because if it hurt me then 

it can hurt me now.

Im glad you missed me, 

it wasnt fun being free. 

i missed your hugs, your kisses, 

when i broke up with you,

an arrow dug into my heart. 

when we didnt speak, 

it tore me apart. 

i felt like i was weak. 

it broke my heart. 

i wish for it to never, 

happen, for if it does i wont be happy ever. 

so as i write this poem, 

i am openly expressing my hope,

my devotion, 

when we parted, the sorrow seemed sweet, 

i was broken hearted,

and i couldnt believe. 

the simpilist thing you said to me. 

i know you tried, and so did i.

in the end, we needed to part in order to realize 

what our hearts were saying, 

no need to sympathesize, 

because as i say i love you, 

i am hugely devoted to you

love is love, love is you, i love love love, so i love you

My Love After Death

You can call my name but you wont hear me answer
At least no in this physical world
You know, my love, that I never wanted to be
Separated from you
What I would do to take everything back
What I would do to stop you from crying
You need to go on with your life
And just leave me as just a memory

Though I may be dead now, I still live
I am still alive within you
And know one thing now
I love you and will always as I eternally sleep

Hold my hand, isn’t it cold?
Well know that on the inside it is warm
To see you happy is a dream that I still hold onto
From this day forward
What I would do to hear your voice again
What I would do to express my love for you
But since I love you so much
I want you to be happy and move on

Though I may be dead now, I still live
I’ll be alive in spirit, honey
But I haven’t left without
Leaving you a gift as well as my will

What I would do to see you again
What I would do to say, “I love you” again
But you needn’t focus on me
For I’m still with you, just now a part of you

Though I may be dead now, I still live
You shall see a part of me again soon
Just 9 months from now
You will see some on me with a part of you
A new creation because of my love for you…

Makes Me Happy

I’ve heard all about the favourite things
Like brown paper packages tide up with string
I sat there and listened I understood
What makes me happy what makes me feel good

It’s having good friends and family close by
Being at ease without having to try
To be blessed with love from those close to me
That’s what makes me happy as I can be

I often have wondered just what would I miss
The love and the comfort each piece of bliss
My grandchildren’s love, kisses and hugs
The things those to me are addictive like drugs

The love of a daughter and also a son
Nothing else seems to get near either one
Lastly what makes me happy is my loving wife
Through the love and the turmoil of everyday life

So these are things so simple and true
That always cheers me up when I’m feeling blue
I hope that other people have got this to 
Just hope that those people include all of you

In return I hope I give joy to all in my life
From everyone listed especially my wife
For if I give back half what the give me
I know that will make them happy you see

First Love

First Love

Her eyes showed me a way,
Her unique smile let my tears go away,
Her Beautiful face made me to say,
Is this Love, or what???

Started to have feeling of love,
Started to behave nicely and different,
Started to smile when there was no reason to smile,
Still, Is this Love, or what??

Tried to approach her, but felt belittled, lowly, shy,
Tried to ask her for date, but felt afraid, scared, shocked,
Tried to express my love, felt would be rejected, hurt, unheard,
Well still, Is this love, or what?

I can fix anything, why not this thing,
I can talk to any girl, why not this girl,
I can really convince anyone, why not this one,
Came before many girl, why not this girl.

Do please not tell me its just nothing,
Do tell me how to do something about this thing...Love,
Do tell me anything about this thing…Love,
Will there be rejection or appreciation??????????

Hugs

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Thank you

Thank you – Zamreen Zarook

Thank you is a sweet word in the nature,
You may be a guy of adventure,
May be you are a person of agriculture,
What matters is your architecture.

Never forget the people, who guided you,
In no degree neglect who were with you,
Don’t ever overlook a creature, who gave a smile to you,
Because, you will meet them above you.

People forget the past due to selfishness,
They have no time to remember their unawareness,
Society, most of the times behave in awfulness,
They will understand when their lives come in to bitterness.

Be a person to thank and remember,
Don’t consider them as December,
Because, you might need them in November,
So, always be as a good subscriber.

Ode to my son on his 28th birthday

When I looked up at you the other night
I saw you coming through the door
Framing it with your amazing smile
steadfast, self assured, a happy man
A happy Dutch life with Irish sea-kissed roots
Not just a European but a world class man
As you stood before me, I felt such pride.


When I think of you, I see my little boy blue
Forever young, blond mop, those winsome sky eyes
my spry child, intelligent, forever questioning
hyperactive,  mischievous, a little dare devil
your smile, a mile wide in times of trouble
I see you holding your teddies Ruby and Rupert
Tractors, diggers, broken engines brrrrrrrmm.


Your love of engines, paid off after all
as you shifted gear to driving instruction
For a guy who showed no interest in being a scholar
Now you are the teacher, with a flurry of pupils
I think it works better, this way around.
Your greatest gift is your love for people
Your greatest asset, your winning smile


Keep on living and loving as you do
You view life through a positive lens
Becoming a mother hit me with a new perspective
An appreciation of life, when I gave you yours
Together we grew, and continue to grow
In love and respect, now and forever.

Puzzle Piece

A puzzle piece you are to me 
Like a vine without any leaves. 
Your heart is pure your soul is 
Gold, the sweetest thing I'll 
ever hold! A miracle in my eyes 
it seemed, knowing they said 
no babies for me! Always a 
surprise you seem to be just 
like a puzzle piece! At 9 months 
you walked but not until 4 did 
you first talk! Always a terror 
making a beautiful mess always 
a surprise that has yet to be 
met! The twists and turns I 
know we will see will seem 
somewhat like a roller coaster 
to me! The milestones and 
special gifts you bring will make 
my life seem Like a dream, my 
special boy I have always said 
How special I knew not till 
Aspergers they said! The 
journey will be trying the 
journey will seem long! But 
with our family together we will 
chug along! My special boy I 
love you so and cannot wait to 
see you mature and grow! Now 
we have a goal we have our 
dream you see to make you the 
perfect fitting puzzle piece!!

Love Never Fades

There's a little history to this particular poem. I know I wrote it when I was 11 or 12 years old. I wrote it for my Grandma Dorabel, who is today 90 years old. I also wrote it for my uncle John who had been taking care of her at the time; I didn't want to leave him out so I put on the letter: For Grandma Dee and Uncle John! I wrote this short little poem along with a drawing of a cat and some flowers. However, I actually never sent the picture to her! My parents and I must have forgotten to send! To me that was unacceptable! I thought to myself today when I found the picture, I must send it now! The picture is now on its way to her, so I am happy she will at last receive it. 

---------------------------- You can send me a bouquet of flowers, You can order me a box of chocolates, You can buy me a fancy outfit, But flowers don't last, Chocolates eventually disappear, Outfits get out of style, Yet Love never fades, And it's the most precious gift of all

A Child's Dream Come True

As the sunsets at the end of the day,
And the night begins to fall,
So, does all the dreams of all the little children,
In their own wonderlands of their own,
Wishing and thinking of great things to come,
Hoping their parents will make these dreams come alive,
Cause dreams to children should become bright and gleam,
And all to them more than just alive,
All children want is hopes and dreams to become true,
But if you can teach them how to work hard at them,
They too can make their dreams become their own reality,
For any one person works hard enough,
At what they want in life,
They can have any one thing they want,
All they have to do is work really hard to make it real,
For believers can believe in themselves,
And strive to work toward making their own goals,
Their very own come true,
Which gives more satisfaction in life,
Than things being handed to you,
So always strive for the best,
And all your wishes and dreams can come true,
In your life if you want them too.

Daydream Love

You are simply a work of art.
I’ve known it from the very start, 
But you won’t find me hittin’ on ya.

For I’m just an old guy 
With a twinkle in his eye;
Happy just to gaze upon ya.

My old heart quickens it pace
Each time I see your pretty face,
A face that every man should see.

Sometimes, just for a while,
Each time I see you smile,
I imagine it's just for me.

And, when I hear your voice,
For just a moment, I rejoice.
Yes, it’s music to these old ears.

But more than a work of art,
You’re warm and funny and smart.
Simply a beautiful person, my dear.

Though with you I’m quite smitten,
My words are respectfully written;
And every word is  true.

But, if I weren’t so old,
If I were better looking and a little bold,
I would simply say, “I love you.”

Who Am I

A new photograph floats to the surface
Playfully dressing up as the world around me
Hat, striped socks and all
Tiptoeing at the top for one last sweet moment 
Before sinking back into my ocean mind.

One after another they arrive
Single file,
Steeping my eyes in the world 
As the minds shutter, ever fluttering 
Strings together this conscious stream I play in.

My photographs fade in time’s wrinkled arms.
Joining their brothers and sisters at the ocean floor,
They hold hands and try to answer the question that is always asking itself:
Who am I?

Ode to Mi Corazon

As I pull weeds from cracks in sidewalks
Yout sit on top of thrones made of solid gold
And I pay no mind to the women around me,
Only to your beauty do I hold an Ode.

I see my fair Spanish lady
my daring, sweet rose with thorns,
That run up and down her spine.
As she stops in the daily parade
Waving at the peasants,
She looks at me and summons her guards
Too take me away.

Her beauty is unbearable.
I cannot take not being with her
For a single moment in my life.
Her hair,
Black like coal,
Her smile is bright, as the first rays of the Red Sun
In the dawn.
Her lips painted with ruby lipstick,
her silk laced dress and shawl wrap around her,
Like a beautiful butterfly in her cocoon.
Her skin of olive, dark color and her green eyes.
My God, those sweet and piercing green eyes
Oh, how they hit my soul and make me shiver with excitment.
She is intoxicating and I am intoxicated in her beauty.

She is like an angel, a Latina beauty who walks the streets paved gold,
As I walk the cracked, cobblestone walkways.
She shines in the Spanish sun, like a dimoand in the ruff
As you blow the dust off her sweet brow,
she glows and sparkles with extordinary excellence.

She is beautiful and sweet and kind.
She loves me, but her father minds.
I am only a peasant, and she royalty.
Can our love ever be together in one holy matrimony?
I pray to the Lord, of all that is good,
Please give me a sign that she loves me.

Soon a storm came over,
blowing me down to the ground
And a cloud of dust swallowed me whole.
A great Conquistador on a great white stallion
pulled me up and told me that she wanted to see me.
I shacked with nervous of joy as I followed the warrior.

She was there, under a palm tree
Near a beautiful beach in Barcelona.
She smiled and a glow covered me with passion.
I hugged her and kissed her upon her sweet lips.
I tasted virginity and she tasted loyalty.
We both tasted beauty and harmony.
As the warrior left us,
We made love upon a vigin white sheet,
Soon covered with a flowing river of red.
She moaned with exticy and love was in the air.
The Ode to my sweet Spaniad, Mi Corazon!

We lay there in each others arms
Looking up at a clear night sky
The twilight glimmered ever so softly
And a shooting star blazed across the sky
I kissed her and she kissed me.
I whispered in her, "My love forever"
And she pushed me back upon the sheets
and we made sweet and ever lasting love again.
As we looked in each other's almond colored eyes.
I said to her, in a soft voice, Mi Corazon.

Upon A Bed Of Petals

                                                        Upon A Bed of Petals
                                    The fragrance is so heavenly full of romance
                            With petals smooth and colorful it puts me into a trance
                                    The light shines upon the area of which they lay
                               With the oasis of beautiful smell I fall in a deep delay
                                    The aroma of sweet beauty comes a dream
                                With motion that reveal emotions with great steam

                                                        Upon A Bed Of Petals
                           Comes a well spent year with joyous laughter and self appeal
                                   With open arms we embrace the life that is surreal
                             Comes a time that we do have to dream with petals of life
                                         With occasional choices of passion and strife 
                                   Comes a venue of flowers of many beauty with value
                                      With another part of each season we stand true

                                                         Upon A Bed Of Petals
                                  The scent of life passes through and makes new
                                With loops that can be seen in an open sky so blue
                                   The wind takes one petal or two to show a trust
                          With to passionate people lying by the petals love is entrust
                                     The beauty is that the petal lasts in memory of
                              With two people passion with love rules true and above

The Beach of Promises

The Beach of Promises


1.


Fingers entwined, barely touching,
turquoise waters teasing your dancing toes,

strolling along that serene deserted beach,
our promised dreams within aching reach.


2.


Hands clasped, holding on,
sea-breezes tickling the nape of your neck,

walking together, alone, vowing to never breach,
the dreams dreamed on that faraway velvet beach.


3.


Hands in my pockets, alone,
traces of you linger, teasing,

lost in my scribbles, your memory fading out of reach,

my thoughts ablaze, now and then,
catching a whiff of your fragrance,

wafting through alleyways of nostalgia,
your hand in mine on our pristine beach.

The Sun In My Face

I awoke this morning to the sun in my face ,
   Quickly I sat  up for I knew it was late .
My sleep  has been so good since we came together,
    The rest I get the peace I feel will be with me forever.
Can't remember when I have felt so good ,
    Finding you has changed my life , I knew it would .
This is not something I would ever take for granted ,
    Because I know the seeds of love have been planted .
It will grow and blossum into something so grand ,
    Always glowing brightly no matter where I stand .
Not a worry or care do I feel on this day ,
    Only joy and happiness will come our way.
I can say this from the bottom of my heart , 
    Never will I feel alone when it's cold and dark .
To be awakened by the sun in my face ,
   To be honest with you , it matters not if I am late .

a romantic legend

The Romantic Legend  

The lord of the manor near the coast of Algarve,
Behind the manor a forested valley where 
Packs of frightful wolves roamed. 

A day when his youngest daughter who was a bit
Odd-as she took no interest in suitors- went to 
The glade to pick flowers, she met a he wolf.

Not afraid she petted the good animal and his
Eyes she discovered love that asked for nothing 
And had nothing to give but love itself.

The daughter when doing needle work had stung
Herself and there was a drop of blood on her 
Index finger, which the wolf lovingly licked away.  

A miracle happen the girl turned into a sleek,
Wonderful she wolf with silky black and tan fur.
Their union was complete and love rewarded.



The pair found a cave in the deepest forest 
Where they lived happily for many years until
The he wolf was killed by a bigger animal. 


The spell was broken and she was now an old 
woman, alone and scared, where love´s light 
had shone there was fearful darkness.

There was a knock on the manor´s oak door,
An elderly woman claimed she was the daughter
Of the house but, she was not believed.

It was a rainy night and when the door opened
Next morning the servants found a young girl 
With glade flowers in her folded dead hands.

What sorrow, what grief, but she wore a smile
“Vale de lobo” the forest doesn´t exist anymore
 And a paradise of love is lost to a legend.      
 
PS “Lobo” wolf.

Brown Eyes

Brown eyes that matched her hair
Sad and unhappy as she stood there
Waiting for her love to return, maybe yes
maybe never, only time will tell
Such sad brown eyes that matched her hair
Tied from behind in the most romantic way
Head slightly tilted gazing down in despair
Looking, but not looking staring into space
Memories, dancing inside her head
As she spoke silently “He promised to return” 
Talking to herself said… “I had to believe
What am I to do this is just my grief”
Time is just a lie man invented it to be wise
When two lovers are together
It doesn’t need Einstein.
He gave such a wonderful love
Love only known to a lonely heart
For what is life if not with him, I prefer to die.
Fool I am to think he will return
He’s been gone so long maybe minutes
maybe days.

In love with life

In love with it all

I’m in love with all of it
I haven’t got much wealth
I guess I’m getting older now
I’m running down on health
But I’m in love with all of it
Every blade of grass, each tree
I love it with my heart and soul
I adore its mystery.

Everything in life excites me
I don’t know why this be
But I don’t suffer anymore
With depressive misery
Within my world I am a king
Cause I have everything
Every day is dear to me
Each moment makes my heart sing.

That golden Sun there in the sky
Is looking down on me
As he colors all with wondrous glory
Creating so much mystery
As here I sit, so all alone
The whistling soothes my soul
As canary, caged, just sings for me
And the morning feels so whole.

Home is Where the Ocean Is

Summer is here once again.
The breeze is warm,
I smell salt on the wind.
The same sandy beach between my toes,
The same waters I learned to swim.
Sun burn on my nose,
To the Ocean I dive in.
I submerse myself in the waters of the Atlantic
Warmer than the West Coast Thankfully
Cold, I simply cannot handle it!
Further out I paddle faithfully,
For my mother ocean to keep me sane,
this is my therapy,
to soothe this migraine.
This place gives me energy,
a weakness with a name.
Pleasure Island, NC.
A place hidden with fortunes
and undiscovered fame.
Never could I stray from the ocean
my passions would never be fulfilled
and I would never be the same.


Dedicated to my Dad on Father's Day 2013
The man who introduced me to the ocean and educated me about it and gave me reason to love appreciate and respect it.

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.

The Happy Dress

It’s a mother-in-law’s right, her prerogative 
To ‘drop in’ on her son almost any time,
But a mother-in-law should always be prepared
For almost anything she may find.

So, Mother Cready dropped in unannounced;
But as she approached her son’s front door,
Suddenly it opened.  “Ta Da!  Do you like my happy dress?”
His young wife stood there in her ‘all in all’…nothing more.

“Oh, my word!” Mother Cready exclaimed with surprise.
“Why are you naked?  Are you insane?”
Just as surprised, the young wife pulled her inside.
“Please, Mother Cready…if you’ll just let me explain.

You see, when Mac has had a rough day,
When he’s been under a lot of stress,
Sometimes I meet him at the door
With a smile and a kiss in my happy dress.

It always relaxes him and makes him happy,
Then he makes me very happy too.
It works for Mac and me, Mother Cready;
Maybe it would work for you.”

“We’re too old for such.” scoffed Mother Cready.
“Perhaps if we were young like the two of you.”
But, on her way home, she decided
She was definitely going to try it too.

So, she bathed and put on some nice perfume,
Fixed her make-up and her hair.
She was thinking some very sexy thoughts,
But she had to hurry…no time to spare.

She heard her husband’s car in the driveway;
And as he approached their front door,
She threw it open.  “Ta Da! Do you like my happy dress?"
She stood there in her ‘all in all’…nothing more.

She saw a little grimace cross his face,
But that was not the worst.
Then he said, “I appreciate your happy dress, my dear;
But maybe you should have ironed it first.”

ALTERNATE LAST VERSE

“Well…your ‘happy dress’ could use some ironing;
But my birthday suit could use some starch.”
He kissed her. “Bet you and I can work it out.”;
And off to bed they marched.

Together,Forever

I call it a blessing from above
And I know everyone wants this to have
Everyone is looking for it
But only few can found it

I'm lucky I'm one of that few
And I've been blessed to found true love in you
It's like a dream came true
To be loved by the guy I loved too

To you,I felt the undefined happiness
For me,for all the guys you are the best!
And I want you to stay for the rest of my life
Coz' I really need someone like you in my life

I consider you as a blessing sweetheart
So I give to you my sincere HEART
I love you forever
And I hope that God will guide us to be together..forever

FOREVER

I've been wanting you, forever
Dreaming of this moment, forever 
Even before you knew, and I did too 
There's always been a me and you 
We're forever!

The world may not be kind, forever 
Perhaps people will stay blind, forever 
But if its only me and you, that ever get a clue 
This uncommon love is forever true 
We're forever!

Life will have its up and downs, forever
It might be a crazy merry go round, forever 
But each day is new, on all of them.. I love you 
There's always been a me and you
We're forever!

The Autumn Affect

There's something unspecific about the autumn nights
A certain shade of color that uplifts my inner child's eyes
Beside a cashmere moon Venus and Jupiter shine bright
Complimented by a sea of blinking infinite twilight
The scent of burning oak lingers in the air from home made fires
Reminiscent of a time when this man was just a child
Careless and so free to dream and any dream to live
Like feathers floating across a field carried by the wind
As a gentle breeze blows through the leaves shivering delightful gloom
Unlike flowers of springtime the disheveled autumn vibrance bloom
Leaves crackle beneath my feet along the skeleton tree path
Where I try to find my peace or a song to make me laugh
The air is so much crisper and also soothing when I breathe it in
Underneath a starry sky and brighter constellations of Heaven
Amidst the trail I pass a lovely couple holding hands
While their children run aside frolicking in a playful dance
An old man and his wife admire the view from a wooden bench 
With smiles on their face as if nostalgia is still their closest friend
Its these specific autumn affects that bring me sorrows and joy
Reminding me of all theses things Ive wanted as a man since I was a little boy 
Its times like these that I wish I wasn't always so alone
Because I would light an fire with my family and call it home

Happiness

Happiness (acrostic)
Happiness is found within not in people and things

Acceptance of the present regardless of what fears/ inner demons you may be facing

Persistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

Patience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials and tribulations life often presents to us, unexpectedly

Inside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a smile on your face

Never give up on yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart and a positive mind set

Endless love & happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

Spirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural state of being

Smile in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward.  Live as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow :) :) :)

Ridiculous Me

Watch this scene with both eyes and try not to blink C: --> 

I stood there... silently
Like a predator near prey 
I sneak behind YOU

You weren't even aware of it!! Ha-ha! 

I made YOU jump hIgH
Like a startled hare
I chuckle and smile

You know that mischievous smile of mine? 

Your reaction was
PRICELESS - you were so upset
But YOU forgave me

Well...I'm flattered. . . 

We laugh'd together (just like the good times)
In a chorus - our volume
Picked up extreme sound

Believe me - I could hear our laughter from a mile away!

But I'm glad I did
My best to make you giggle

Ridiculous me... 
Wouldn't you agree?

Soul Sisters

Such an Amazing girl god put into my life.

He knew i needed you at that exact time

Funny when we met I thought you were to good for me

But when you approached me the sweetest girl I did meet.

From that day on we have never truly been apart cause I

carry you around everywhere in my heart. You have been the

rock when I needed a friend around, you have been the light

when the darkness consumed me and took away my sunshine

Even when were miles apart the phone connects us and keeps

our strongest bond. 17 years feels like such a short time but

I feel I have always had you in my life. Soul Sisters we were

meant to be.. You my beloved friend are such a fresh breeze

Even after a year apart it was like yesterday that we did part

so through the many miles and through the long hard road

I know this friendship will always survive. Your a burst of joy

to me each day I thank the Lord for the sweet blessing he gave!

For Always

Every moment I can't see your face;
These are the days and nights when I miss you.
I ask that you stay for always,
On sunny days and when it rains too.

If I speak to another pretty dame,
She's not the flame inside that grows.
In my heart you will remain;
This one thing I'd like you to know.

Can I Live in Your Lullaby

His voice, so soft and warm, across me spread

I conceded that this I would allow

A Prayer For Strength To Be Yourself

It's hard doing something different.
It's difficult staying yourself.
In a world so accustomed to conformity,
It feels nearly impossible to be unique
As the one He created you to be.
How do we find the strength?
How do we find the courage?
How do we find the bravery?
Where do we defeat fear?
Well, He's hanging on The Cross
Giving life to you and me.
Thank You Jesus!
Let us not forget
With Christ,
Nothing is impossible,
For with God,
All things are possible!
Thank You Father!
Thank You!
We give our lives to You!
We are Yours!
Praise You forever
And forevermore!
In Jesus' Name,
We pray,
Amen!

Self PORTRAIT

I will start with using my hand as a guide
And in the end I will open my eyes that I will decide

I consider to do this with one thing in mind
I will close my eyes and will imagine it blind
With no colors or fractionation of the light
Just plain me and a vision with my hand as my sight

My hair is very coarse and some what fine
What I just described is so benign  
I twirl my hair and make it bend 
And I will say its very clean not oily on the ends

As I press on my forehead I simply feel a distinct part
I notice from hair to skin it is very different from the start
The simple partings from hair not like skin
I am going to feel with my other hand and begin

The smoothness of my skin like years of water eroding a rough rock surface smooth
Not just that my skin is like home to years of stories like scars and attitude
And when I raise my eyebrows the wrinkles it makes is more so for expression
I did not notice it with certain ideas, thoughts, and emotions

I run my hands down to my eyelids I feel movement of my eyes trying to peek
Eyelids that I have, vibrates with some kind of fear, Why?, that I will seek
Just now as I thought about it a sensation ran through my brain
My eyes is the world to me and that is true and not insane

Myself portrait of me is through my touch for now
But to finish it I will have to open my eyes soon and how
I been in a trance full of so many ideas just with my eyes closed
I run my hand on my nose and lips and I smile who could apposed

The feelings in the tip of my fingers rub on my chin and jaw with care
I do notice roughness of unshaved velcro gripping hair 
I skip my ears so I will sneak a feel with my fingers I chose
I notice it is like my nose with cartilage, so I don't suppose

I will now open my eyes that I will use a mirror to see myself
My head is oval shape and my neck is like a stump, please help
My skin is very tan and my eyes are brown with my eyes I see
With all the description with my hands, one sure thing is the same and key

It is the description of measurements that is what my hands and eyes can see me
With a smile I am looking into the mirror and I can describe that I am happy
Myself portrait of me is such a way to get to know myself once more
I will never think it was a waste of time or a bore

You Are Everything

O friend, I'm all yours, teach me to love,
I've left the world and come, teach me love,
When my companion cares for me,
Why should I care for the world?
The world puts bans on me,
I don't belong to this world,
You in the morning, you in the evening,
You’re the kin; you only are the friend,
Every time every minute of the day,
You’re the kin; you only are the friend,
On the heart's slate I write,
Love, Love…
What does the world know my heart feels?
Love for whom,
Beloved, hug me and ask my well being,
What do I care about the world?
You're my victory; the world is my loss,
I don't belong to this world,
I have to become love and write letters
With eyes, have to write,
The way you look, I have to look like that,
Have to look like that,
The cupbearer of passions gives me lesson,
What do I care about the world?
You're with me, (my) world is with me,
I don't belong to this world…

Spring New beginnings

Such a beautiful sight a valley of snowdrops, white heads nodding in approval of our love.   We wander hand in hand no more lookng back, just forward, stepping into the Spring time and the wonders of the new.

tiny sprouting leaves
flowers nodding downwards ...
spring morning

Walking together in  the countryside, we stop and kiss, just so happy to be together at last, lambs with bobbing tails watch tentatively, nervously bleating for their mam's shelter . A lone donkey in with a full of horses with their foals, is so happy as he feeds.

in green pastures
horses are grazing ...
springtime feeds the eyes

Our love has stood the test of time, new beginnings spring forth. Looking towards the winter of our lives together.

a glowing sun sinks
awaking lonely hearts ...
love blooms

My Persian Queen

From the Gardens of Babylon,
to the walkways of Palestina,
to the grand temples of Jerusalism,
to the sandy beaches of Syria and Cyprus.
Went my Persian Queen riding,
upon her golden, firery chariot.

Her black hair, like silk long and flowing.
Her royal robes white and purple, bare and pure.
Her sword by her side, ready to strike.
Her spear fastened, ready to stab the dreeded heart
of the Fire Dragon.
On the firery chariot, riding with her armies,
Went my Perisan Queen.

O, how my arimes fight your armies,
in the midst of night fall, under a full moon.
Let us stop this foolish fighting.
And have fellow brother, love fellow brother.
And so we can fall in love forever.

And don't act like you don't show love for me.
I see you in the dawns, standing upon the sand covered battlefields.
Standing proud behind your armies.
With your black hair flowing.
You almost making me want not to fight the battle of the Day,
for if you were killed, what victory would that be then?

You pull your armies back at the last minute, before I am slayed
by your fellow brother in arms.
You retreat your arimes back over the hills, not in fear of losing the day,
but in fear of losing me.
You and your armies had plenty of chances to kill me, yet you do not.

My Persian Queen, O come now.
Come down from your firery chariot
and into my restless arms.
I know you are tired
and wanting to sleep.

Listen to the nightingale
sing her love song.
Drinking the sweet necture,
from the gardens, in your vase Persian Empire.

Come now, and kiss me,
Hold me, let us ride,
far from the simple minds of the Old World
and fall in love in a New.

My Persian Queen
O how I love you so much.
I cannot bare to see you in a life you don't want to live.
Come let I, your Knight in shinning armour liberate you.
Take you by the hand, run through the great bazzare in Old Istanbul
running away from the Janissaries of your father's Imperial armies.

Let us leave this place of hate and sorrow.
To start our lives a new.
My Persian Queen,
Now dressed in silk lace,
with golden jewlery hanging
from your beautiful and tender neck.
Along with the silver pattened belt around your harmonial waist.

It is time for you, to come with me.
No more shall we act like we dispise one another.
As Romeo and Juliet's love failed,
shall our love take course, and we shall love
till the oceans swallow the earth, the mountains crumble,
and the Sun engulf the sweet Earth.
And on and on shall our love go on,
My adorable and lovely Persian Queen.

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

I love the way your blue eyes shine

I love the way your blue eyes shine.
.
I love the way your gentle blue eyes shine
As your lovely face, it tells me you are mine
No words could tell, the love I have for you
It shines through me, so pure and sweet and true.

My years with you, have been the best I’ve known
Through all these years my love has grown and grown
I know, at times I’m hard to understand
Yet how I melt beneath our love so grand.

Until the end of time we two be one
Our love so vast it could outshine the sun
Together we two drown within such bliss
I’d die without your love, be sure of this.

Nothing could ever stem my love for you
It fills the Earth, the seas, the sky so blue
Forever and a day, this love in me
Will join us two together endlessly.

Her Beauty Didn't Stall

Elaborate, softly tailored to suit She’s sure more beautiful than very cute Exquisite form, flawless in many eyes Details of her delight, there’s no disguise She likes to wear tight dresses, to show off I hardly noticed her feeling quite scoffed Because many were ignoring her here She’s just a normal guest it would appear I walked up to her, a smile on my face She saw my approach and ruffled her lace I began to speak with her, this goddess And we talked the night through, I did impress Her beauty didn’t stall, I kept going Now she holds a love that keeps on giving

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".

The Dust God

I am drifting into memories.
Wasting away like a million photographs fading in the sun-
Yet with ceaseless renewal,
Staining the depths of my eyes with images
In the minds shutter ever fluttering to infinity,
Stringing together this conscious stream I play in-
My stupendous God made of dust and space
Tightrope walking existence!
And to think we too are made of mostly nothing-
Chance so scarcely gracing our atoms with a single touch
In a place so lonely when counted, 
Yet so abounding when felt!
So dance with the Dust God 
Poised miles above the earth-
Prance on your stilts, 
And peek into the great valleys beneath his skin.
Because any moment we could disappear 
Into

Wine Makes Me Feel Fine

A swig of wine makes me feel fine
We have some every time we dine
Pinot Noir or Chardonnay
Zinfandel's the best says my fiance'

Hard core liquor gives me a buzz quicker
Then me and my man start to bicker
We squabble about mundane things
Like why he won't buy me diamond rings

I deserve it because I'm good to him
I workout often just to stay slim
What we have ain't superficial
And it's not based on purely physical

I love my man with all my heart
But I feel we need a fresh start
A chance to fall in love again
To feel his touch on my skin

Happy Mother's Day

A mother is always there for us
No matter what we do
She’ll encourage us to follow our dreams
She’ll help us see it through.

A mother will always love us
She can see what we cannot
She will always give the last she has
No matter what she’s got.

Her love is unconditional, and
Somehow she’ll always know
What it is we always need
No matter where we go.

I love you Mom with all my heart
So I thought that I would say
No one could ever have a Mom like you
On this special Mother’s Day.

Glisten in the Moonlight

Your glorious emerald eyes 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Delight dances in the water
I watch it joyfully
You are set free from the cage...
You're like a dove soaring in the sky
You are the rain...
drizzling down in ecstasy 
A hint of ecstasy is shown in your reflection...
When you caress me... I'm relieved... 
From the stress that forced me in chains
I knew we'd be on the brighter side of tomorrow 
We're glistening in the moonlight 
I knew we'd become candles in the heavens above us
We're glistening in the moonlight
For a moment, I felt your presence...your radiant with sympathy 
I saw at first glance the dark side of you
Tonight, we'll be together and fly through the horizon 
We'll watch the sunset say its last goodbye...
We'll wave a greeting at the moon! 
We glisten in the moonlight...
What if I was as handsome as the lion...
Roaring with pride and pure courage
What if we were glistening in the moonlight?
Would it bring health to our bones tonight?
Would it make our heart rejoice and overflow with delight?
Would we be able to survive this horrifying plight?
Would we be shimmering like a candlelight?
We're glistening in the moonlight... (6)
Ohh...yeah...ooh yeah...ooh yeahh...
We reach to the stars and hope we can trace a shooting star
I feel the coolness run down my fingers...
We're glistening in the moonlight
You're the dandelions in the fields
You're the gorgeous view that I marvel at everyday
When you kiss me, I live my dreams
We glisten in the moonlight
In a quick moment, I sense a feeling of endless renewal 
I roam inside of your illuminating maze 
Glow on... sunshine... 
Glow on...sunshine...
Glisten in the moonlight...
Listen to the truth and rub it in
You are ravishing like the sunset
But you're ascending while I'm descending
I feel extremely guilty
I wish I could glisten with you in the moonlight
You're glistening in the moonlight (6) 
Ohhh yeahh... oohhh yeahh... ohh yeahh
You're glistening in the moonlight (4)
We go our own way
I wish we can glisten like the moon
Glisten like the sun 
There's a dream concealed inside of me...
Reveal your light and pour it upon me
You glisten in the appealing moonlight
While I'm subsiding... you're fulfilling your dreams
Of gliding across the horizon 
You're independence... keeps on scorching with satisfaction
While I'm below you... 
Your emerald green eyes
Stared me down like a hawk...
Your emerald eyes
Gaze down at me genuinely...
I wish we could flee together in reality...
That could be a possibility
To glisten in the moonlight in glee
We were glistening in the moonlight (3)
But that was only a dream...
I'll pray that it turns into a reality
We were glistening in the moonlight 
Now, I've misplaced my delight...
Will I ever experience such a brilliant night?

In memory of Bob

In memory of Bob
A true story.

It was in spring of two thousand when I first saw Bob. I’d just started working at Perth Dental hospital, and in fact it was my first day there. I walked up to the front door of this building, but it wasn’t yet opened. So I turned around and went to sit in the bus shelter which was just outside the building. As I went to sit down I noted a dark skinned gentleman sitting there with a happy, benign look on his face. He was about five feet eight give or take a little, and he was rather a thickset man who looked like he’d done his fair share of hard work in his sixty years or more.

     There was something about this Gentleman that I could not quite put my finger on. He had a certain charisma about him; not the phony kind of charisma that one seen in the car salesman or the philanderer who messes with women’s heads, no, Bob had a kind of friendly smile for everyone that he met, and he seemed to draw people into him with his love, and gigantic heart. I knew as soon as I met him that Bob was most definitely for me.

      As Bob looked at me and smiled, the whole world seemed to open up. He said “Ow ya  going mate” in a loud ebullient manner, then we started to chat. Bob was like myself, a thinker, and straight away we started philosophizing about this, that, and the other, and it was like we had known each other forever. Then all of a sudden I found Bob talking about death, and the difference in the way the Maori people faced death, compared to the rather the silly way us white folk look at the subject with great fear in our hearts. Now this had always interested me, and  somehow it just seemed natural to talk to this Maori gentlemen on this subject, and we spoke about it till the doors opened and it was time to work.

      I don’t think anything happens just by chance, and I definitely have this feeling that Bob and I were meant to meet, and I really think this was a major destiny thing. I have found during the course of my life,  that as I am aging, I can feel something pushing me into a certain direction, and I always felt that Bob was part of all this; and I had much to learn from him. Although I have never believed in organized religion, and never followed one I have always felt deeply spiritual, and I have met many people who I learned from, and Bob was most definitely one of them with all his great wisdom and patience. As I came to know Bob, we had many dialogues together, on many subjects. Bob used to love music and could always have time to plonk away on his guitar. He used to come round to my place and we would play songs together, though both he and I were no Eric Clapton’s, I would bang around on my guitar and play the harp, while we would both take out turns at singing. We’d have a smoke or a beer or two, and we’d play songs all day long,  ahhh, I remember those days well, the memories are so strong.

     Bob was one hell of a man, I could tell that he had been a wild one in his youth,
But when I knew him in his sixties he was an icon of wisdom and virtue; he had a kind word for everyone, and gave all his time to anybody who needed him, always.
He used to hear me waffling on like an idiot, trying to make him like me [as I always did] but never once did he tell me how foolish I was, he would just smile knowingly at me. He used to stand there at the window for hours, just drinking in the trees, or the clouds in the sky, and yet he was so aware, I used to try to sneak up on him; it couldn’t be done. His awareness was incredible.

     Then one day Bob fell ill with terminal cancer, and he knew that he had very little time left on this Earth. He lay there sick for days in intolerable pain,  but you never heard one complaint from him, even when he only had days to live, he was still worrying about the welfare of others. When the day finally come for Bob to leave his shell; he was lying there in deep sleep, when all of a sudden he woke up, with a smile on his face. His children asked him ‘Dad, do you want some pain killers” Bob laughed, compassion written all over his face, and he said to them ‘Not one of you has a clue, have you’ and he died with a big smile on his face.

   His daughter got in touch with me, and told me about his death, and also told me that his last wish was to have me watch his soul leave his body. I felt very honored about this and went and sat with his body [as Maoris do]. I got the most peaceful feeling come to me [which I presume was his spirit leaving his body] as I watched his silent body, a Mari war stick and a beautiful rose lay across his chest. I still see it, and I feel blessed by it. He was my Maori warrior, and I adored the man.

Butterfly

I once was like a catipiller young,naive,and new
Always living from my heart not knowing what
else to do.Easy to take advantage of, that is 
just the case, people would walk over me
like I was their dirty used up suitcase.
Now I feel a newness coming, like a light
shining from the sky, colors fill my world
and I know I am blooming into a butterfly.
Purple,Pink, Blue and Green I can feel them
flowing through. Colors of the rainbow raising
me into full bloom. Wise and strong I am becoming
My faith leads me where I need to go giving me
insight and wiseness for only me to know.
I have not  done this on my own you see
I have been guided by God and Angels
on this Earth. Wise words the wisdom at
it's best comes from a wise lady who
seems to know me best. Lucky, I am 
to have her in my life, she always shoots
it straight and tells me like it is, knowing
her words touch my heart and gives me tons of faith..
I feel like flying through the sky or climbing 
a tree way up high. I feel like observing the 
world just like a brand new butterfly so as I
Bloom I become Anew something unlike the past
Smart and wise beautiful on the inside and outside 
 a touch of color here a touch of color there
makes me glow and become a beautiful blooming butterfly...

My Song

There is a happy song I cannot sing today, For all the thoughts of you Were surely washed away By swiftly flowing tears, That mingled with the rain. I searched the empty hallways, And every corner of my mind, But all the fading memories Had left me long ago. All I saw were shadows Where you had been before. I listened for your voice In every song I heard But all the fading echoes Had left me long ago, All I heard were shadows Falling to the ground. There is a happy song I want to sing today, Of sunlight mixed with shadows And memories of you, Of flowers, songs, and laughter . . . All mingled with the rain.

FOREVERMORE

When I hear your name
My heart beats faster than usual
It's not that I am ashame
But It's just your name is too special..

Can't control the feelings
When I am with you
Can't stop smiling
When you hold me like you do

When you hug me then
I feel like I'm in heaven
You are a blessing from above
And you are the reason why I loved

I'll promise to love you FOREVERMORE..
And I will cherish you until the end of my borrowed life
And I will keep our precious memories as long as
we see each other in our next life..

It's The Simple Things

I remember the days they were born
Both in March, cold and rainy yet we were warm
Me a new dad and my love a new mom
Not knowing what to expect, trying to be calm

Jarret was the first, it was March 25th
Time seemed to linger, our long wait was no myth
But when he decided to take his first look
We both cried at our miracle, as if from a book
It’s the simple things, oh… the simple things

The next time we were old hands, but still a little scared
Wondering how it would turn out, our strength shared
The doctor and nurse seem to show no worry
When that heart monitor slowed down in a hurry
But then Anna came so quick on that March 29th 
Our surprised little doc, still had her sweater on tight
It’s the simple things, oh… yeah, the simple things

The years go by fast, as everyone says
Somehow you don’t pay attention until, there it is
The first time he and I walked to our fishing hole
My buddy and me, him carrying his little pole
Jabbering away about the big one he’d catch
Me hanging on his every word, knowing this moment would be hard to match 
It’s the little things, man I mean the little things

She was a cute little bug, always holding a kitty, puppy or such
She with her happy heart, I love her so much
The first to make friends with whomever she met,
Her big brown doe eyes are hard to forget

The next thing I knew he’s taller than me 
With a voice as deep as the old man in the sea
His single word answers to questions left me craving more
It’s tough on a loving dad, but I know the score

She sings, oh.. how she sings wherever she goes
Our happy heart may someday star in the show
Later I pick her up and hear how the game went
Just listening to her joy, me ever so content
It’s the little things, those simple little things

I’m sitting in the car, waiting for school to abstain
‘Cause I don’t want him to have to walk home in the rain
He jumps in, looks at me and says, thanks pop
You know I love you, and that’s non-stop

It’s life’s little things…just these little things
It’s life’s little things…just enjoy the little things..

Two Hearts full of Love

I am a heart full of love
that shook the pilars that held her colussium up
her heart filled with sorrow,
I swing such fury toward her heart and soul
she cowards away from me,
in fear of falling in love and not knowing what is in black
and not searching what is in the light of pure white.

I am a heart full of love,
she runs and takes the long dirt road,
through the raging mountains of the quiet countryside,
as the meadows of lilacs slowly die when Spring comes,
the blooming of the rose,
like the blooming of my heart,
a blossom on a cherry tree fall and harbour in the wintertime.
I swing toward her, she falls in fear of wanting attention and love.
Lost in the midnight twilight,
the flaming torch guides her through the dark holes of meaningless souls.
and like a frightened hummingbird,
she flees away from the secrets of falling in love.

A heart full of love ready to love,
it is diffcult to feel and to show,
but as if a rose that blooms in Springtime
my love is ready to bloom.

Pettles lay along a darkened atmosphere
lit up only with four wax candles
a portrait of a woman hung over a mantel piece
in honour of my one true love.

As the twilight shine though my bedroom window,
I show a heart full of love,
to take and to hold for eternity.

And as she slowly moves forward,
she takes me home with her,
and opens her chest and shows me her heart
with a glass of red wine and charming cigarette.
She sheads tears of pain and sorrow on my broud shoulder,
I curise her hair, silk laced hair,
shining against the twilight and the moonlit sky.

My heart full of love,
so divine, so original
a one of a kind.

We make love in the midst of the twilight,
as my dream girl is now reality and my pain is no more,
her pain is no more.
Too show such love makes a man feel free
and his soul lighter.
She holds him there,
as the sun rises over the mountains.
The birds sing a tune of cheerfulness,
and they talk about everything beautiful and kind,
that is still left in this cruel and empty hearted world.

Romance and love shared
with a heart full of love,
smile and kiss upon smooth lips,
feel me against your tight body,
and love me till the morning
when Blue eyed Death is staring us in the face.
and we go with him,
and play a game of risk,
and together forever,
onto a diffrent world
we shall love each other forever,
for you and I both have a heart full of love.

Indescribable feelings for you

                     I Have so much                                                 to say, yet little
               words to describe what                                    i really feel.............for you
          I love you more than you know..                    You make my heart soar with ev-
       very word you say; every smile you make. I try not to look into your eyes because I
     know if I stare to long I will get lost in your eyes.I Wish everyone could see your      sweet
 and caring side..Everyone could then realize why i love you so much, but then.......... no one
could understand how much i love you. My feelings for you don’t go into words so easily it is
 just so hard to describe all my feelings for you, and im pretty sure you would know how that
     feels, like everyone when there in love.. The truth is no one has ever loved someone as
         much as i love you.. It seems like each day i love you more and more; You pull me
            closer and closer as i fall for you. You have made me feel beautiful and the truth
               is no one has ever made me feel that way. You have made me see that there
                   really is a reason to live; Your my reason.. I was lost until i found you.
                       No one understands me like you do. I can be very complicated
                           and stubborn at times, but you still continue to talk to me,
                               thats hard honestly for anyone.. I never realized you
                                    would be my boyfriend and best friend at the
                                         same time; Thats a real relationship..
                                             Your the only person i can trust,
                                                  with my life and secrets.
                                                        I Just wanna say
                                                               I Love
                                                                 You

sleep and wake up in the morning, the tree smelled so good it was cut with our 
own hands and drug through the woods.
Finally" it was morning I went into the living room I had a rag doll, one candy 
cane stick ,one orange and a few nuts with my name on it under the tree.
My rag doll was so special it was an original made from my socks and buttons 
from an old shirt for the eyes so she could see how happy I was on Christmas.
We had biscuits and molasses with salt pork grease it was so good. the 
happiness that I felt lasted for a life time, and at no time with six sisters and one 
brother did I think we were poor. times has changed but I still remember, and 
appreciate back in the days.

My Future Generation

I can act insane
But DO NOT 
Make me feel worthless

I belong in God’s family
He will bless my future generation

Don’t punish me for
Being myself –
Don’t envy my glee 

I can act like an
Adult, but I’d 
Prefer to have joy…

Not stress…
That piles upon us in our 
Everyday lives

Being childlike is

A rare beauty – 

No one prizes it…

No one came across it…

In this lifetime…

I can laugh all day
I can make you smile
If you’d accept my 
Childlike dreams of mine
Don’t treat me like a sick swine

Renew my young heart
Give me the ability 
To kill the old man…

I have my place in God’s family
He’ll be adored and glorified 
We’ll exchange prayers and hugs  
By my future generation

I beg of you – 
Don’t kill my childlike mentality
I’ll behave myself…
I’m positively sure that I’ll make you happy

I’ll still have pieces of a child in me

And pass it on to my future generation…

Before I

Just before I saw your face
My heart was running a race
Just before I saw you
My emotions were filled with love and care
Just before I saw you
I could sense your fragrance that filled my air
Just before I saw you
I could imagine your eyes that made me see clear
Then I saw you,
I was amazed how i had to fake my smile 
I was amazed of how I wished if i was far a hundred miles
I was shocked of how I was saying the scripts then,
I was shocked of how my heart froze my brain
I pretended that i was happy and thrilled
I kissed you but my lips were pulling my head
Feelings were forever gone
I kissed you and my guilt was eating my bones
I could hardly talk, my heart was froze and cold
And you were believing all the words you were told
I was amazed how a smooth talker I was
Lies, Lies, Lies every thing i said were lies
Then, It was when I heard the word (love).
My eyes just rolled up, they were looking above
I couldn't say it back, i couldn't even stand
And you were there, standing happy and blind
Asking me gently if i was okay,
No, I wasn't but i had to put an end to the play
I wished if you just feel the same 
So, I wouldn't have to take all the blame
But, you I couldn't just break your heart
Because I know it would hurt more than that
I'm sorry because I will have to break you down
After all you did, After you made me a queen with crown
I have to just let you go
My heart just chose that, it is true

Cookies-Food For Thought

Cookies -
Why can’t I have the chocolate one
I want more
She took my cookie
Hers is bigger than mine
I want to trade
That’s not fair

Cookies +
Thank you for the cookie
I love you
Thanks for all you do for me
I am satisfied
This is good
I am loved

My Friend

My Friend by Weston Gregory

I'm glad you are my friend
And you are interesting 
There’re no dull moments
And we can share what each 
Other thinking, 
Though its been tested of a fact
But we're invested in what we've got  
We fought tooth and nail to remain 
At that and nothing going to change
That as friend first we attached.
I'm better for deciding not to stay alone 
You heal my broken heart 
With you is my home
Amongst its value this love has help
Me to grow
And deal with the issues as they come
And they go
Though mistakes we are prone to make 
And bitter words are some times said 
We forgive. We forgive. We forgive
We forgive. We forgive. We forgive
We forgive
And like water under the bridge 
Those complex emotion simple love finally singe
Leading the way a stronger friend still

Our Jakob

Our Jakob

I’ll tell you a little story
About a little boy, I know
He has a mind at ten years old
That has a kind of glow
That says, “this boy’s intelligent”
He’s got something to say
He glows with curiosity
And learns more every day.

He has this sense of fairness
He’ll never let you down
And with his sense of humour
Each time he sees you frown
He’ll put a smile back on your face 
We love him oh, so much
This boy, he has a way with him
A kind of magic touch.

He be my one time only friend
He’s only ten years old 
And yet he has a heart so big
And made of purest gold
No matter where this boy goes to
My heart, it will go with him
I guess I’ll love my grandson Jake
Until my light grows dim.

my 3rd favourite drive

My 3rd favourite drive was to see her
Only for it to be the longest drive home
To be once again in her arms and embrace her too
I knew what was coming 
I never wanted to let her go
Stability is so fragile 
Stability breaks with a word
Her mind state is a dark world
All alone she decided I'm not to follow
I could see she wanted to cry
Inside we both had many times

To be not good for a person
Is impossible when even in this outcome
Her presence makes me smile naturally
The talk of the future
The talk of ifs and maybes
Doesn't matter to me
I know what I have now
I know how to be happy again
Can you not see?
My life is with you
No matter what I choose
No matter what it is you do
My dream is to be make you happy too

Sitting in my car returning the way I came 
Over an hour to drive home
Easily felt like it was over two
The cd player in my car was purposely loud
Covering the sound from my phone
To my right an accident had occurred
Firemen and ambulances calming the situation
Shards of metal and glass strewn on the road
To my shock I felt nothing for the devastation
My only aim was to get back home

My 3rd favourite drive was to see her
Only for it to be the longest drive home

Goodnight my Fair Maiden

Goodnight my Fair Maiden,
I shall see you once again.
In the year of our Lord,
At the gloomy dawn of Mankind.
As the Red Sun reaches over the treeline,
Far in the East.
I shall see you again.

Don't fear our love,
For my love for you is eternal.
Too see this eternal love
I have for you,
It is hard to feel and very diffcult to see.

When you wake the next morning
and escape your long night of slumber
and your surrealist life,
being played in a cloud of imagination.
You'll soon come to reality 
and find me there.
Knocking upon your chamber door.

Come now!
Get dressed in your evening, silk dress.
and let us go dance under the stars,
till the moon falls to the West and the Sun rises in the East.
Oh, how you are a lovely dancer and how the twilight shines bright
along you shinny and silk laced hair.

And your hair my sweet and fair maiden,
oh, how I love to see it bounce with life
when you twirl and dance into my arms.

You are beautiful and I wish I couldn't leave you,
but as the day turns to night, I have to leave.
I wish I could take you on a long walk through the parks
and courtyards, and walk along the sprinkled streets of the cities filled with life.
Pick you a beautiful bouquet of roses from the gardens of beauty and give them to you
with surprise.

I love you so much
My love for you is indeed hard to tell to you,
but I can show you.
Tomorrow though, for tonight I must say...
Goodnight my Fair Maiden.
For tomorrow you'll be in my arms once again.

Goodnight my Fair Maiden
I shall leave you with a kiss that shall last a lifetime.

Softly sipping honey wine

Softly sipping honey wine

Sipping softly honey wine
I hear the rivers song
Lovely lady by my side
With love so sweet and strong
How the river sparkles
It’s on its way to meet the sea
As softly sipping honey wine
We sit here you and me.

Softly sipping honey wine
There’s only you and me
As Pelicans fly us by
This essence, endlessly
Seeps in, as a boat goes by
And trees dance in the breeze
Softly sipping honey wine
We sit here hearts at ease.

Softly sipping honey wine
I know I love you so
No one, my love, could ever love this true
Softly sipping honey wine
I feel loves tender glow
As I look at you, and know you love me too.

Softly sipping honey wine
The two of us together
River reflects the somber skies
They’ll soon be rainy weather
Here in this cosy chalet
Telling you that I love you
Softly sipping honey wine
And sharing love so true

Ted my hospital visitor

Lying in hospital was visiting time
My cousin walked in with a box so fine
Handed it over said it was for me
To open it when I needed company

The box said Teddy Bears Factory
Inside was Ted’s whole story
His birth certificate is complete
Many things including birth date

Was dressed with hat and scarf
Looked so funny, made me laugh
Specs sat on end of his nose
Looking ready to compose

But he was so good to cwtch *
Instantly loved him so much
Such thoughtfulness I wont forget
My Ted is my best mate

Helped me to recover quickly
My magic pill when I’m sickly
Took 29 years for a Ted so special
Came with love of highest level

*Cwtch  is welsh for cuddle

Questioning Life

Forget! Regret not, for it all has intention...
To attempt comprehension leads to double block wall.
In searching your question, much more loss is gotten, 
Confusion, dismay a deeper dug hole.
Infinitely seeking you strive for some meaning, 
the truth is quite simple you are not sole at all! 
Infusion connection the union eternal, 
Is easy to grasp when knowledge of whole,
is truly encountered from deep within query
The meaning the truth the love of it all...
Once trouble & strife and struggle are missing,
The clear light of being shows beauty once more.
Accept what is given agree to the treaty.
Fight not with your fears, and answer your call.
Find substance in living, step over delusions. 
Regardless of meaning, life’s radiance will soar.
So use this awareness these words and this practice,
Come forth tall and sturdy, head high and recall..
When sad and when empty in need of intention,
No doubts I plead! No need to explore!
Emotions you hold are sensed by your siblings,   
Your waves of sensation your truth and your soul... 
Are parts of us all, we are all together we are all but one!
In oneness we’re whole!

My addiction

I have an addiction...
It dont matter what time of day it is my addiction is there...
Not always in the literall since...
But it is always on my mind...
I lay my head down to sleep at night thinking about you...
I sleep dreaming about you...
I wake up thinking about you...
Your always on my mind...
No matter what I do my addiction is always on my mind...
Even if your not the last one I talk to before I lay my head down to sleep...
I still lay my head down thinking of you...
I just cant get enought of you...
No matter what my addiction is there...
My addiction has a name...
Her name is Shelby Nestle...
No matter how much we text or talk on the phone...
Its never enough...
I cant get enough of your beautiful eyes...
I cant get enough of that beautiful smile...
I cant get enough of kissing your soft lips...
That feeling I get inside when our lips touch...
Or holding you in my arms...
This is a new addiction to me...
Never have I been this addicted this quick...
It scares the shyt outta me...
But then I love it...
You are my new addiction baby... 
You are my...
My heroin...
My ecstacy... 
My cocaine...
You are my own personal drug...
I cant imagine and addiction stronger...
You are my addiction...
I wouldnt even think about trying to break this addiction...
I wouldnt go to rehab for this addiction...
I like it to much...
YOU ARE PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

Push Up

i could sit here. day in and day out
thinking of the most proper way
to let the ink in the pen spill out
but as of late im feeling prehistoric 
so much weight on my shoulders 
and i dont know where to go
resuscitate my soul
look back up and head to the goal

so much evil around. i feel like the devils workin double shifts just to bring me down.
on the road to redemption
you can take a seat up in the front section
just so you can feel the emotions
in this electric notion

i've done a lot of things that hide the halo
let it all collaborate when i medicate 
now look at me, mind workin like plato
formulate a new path to take so i can
maneuver through all the mistakes 
we all know we cant change what we've already made
but we can change the next thing we create
startin to sound like a serenity prayer
5 steps till im thirty
and the twenty four before i was never a player
found out when the lights came back on im strictly a lover
its the strongest drink for your soul, when its thirsty
so careful how much you intake or be left hungover
even worse be the one she ran over

i dont mean to come off like im too deep
but the obstacles made there way through just to scrape through
and leave me suffocating
just for me to re-invent a new way to breathe, re-decorating

is your life so complicated 
you rather wet up your pillows and revoke from the life you live
just think of your kids mourning 
theyll never see that pretty face in the morning any more
cheer your self up
you got a lot to live for
your a gem and im that friend
trynna appraise the value 
that you dont see inside of you


just another day for him
goin about
searchin wonderin what his purpose is
running in circles 
till he found a way through all the turbulence

--LOVE STORM--

My hummingbird found me
A cactus i used to be
Instead she wrapped around me
she kissed my deep buried heart

Of her cute fluttering sound...

Hello Again

Hello again my impossible girl,
I've been looking for you in this always changing world
and I have you, my impossible girl.
But, is it always what it seems?
Because every now and then I'll think
and every now and then I will dream,
that my impossible girl has found me.
Because even if I have you, will you see me?
I find it harder and harder to concentrate on the future,
when my future doesn't have my impossible girl.
So as every ball of rock and dust enters the earth,
and every birthday candle blown, 
and every night at 11:11, 
I will wish for my impossible girl to finally see me,
her impossible man waiting, 
for his impossible girl.

Falling In Like

I love it when you hold me close, and always want to play.
How in the morning you message me; on every single day.
When you call me every night, before I close my eyes-
Or always tell the truth; never any lies. 

When I get to see your passion with every story that you tell,
How even when you’re angry, those feelings never dwell. 
I love that you protect me, from everything around;
That even when I’m lost, I know that I’ll get found. 

I love that whenever you start to drive, you make me kiss your cheek.
How my stomach gets butterflies with each sweet word you speak.
That you cuddle me for a moment and then turn on your side,
That all of your accomplishments and family give you pride. 

I love that you support every decision that I make,
That even if you’re embarrassed of things- you’ve never acted fake.
How you always want me to be happy, no matter how I feel.
That even when we make things up- it’s never been more real. 

How you always make these plans, that often tend to change;
When you smile at my senseless jokes, and when I’m acting strange.
That you always say I’m pretty, even when I don’t think that it’s true-
How you think that I’d want anyone else; when all I want is you.

LOVE FOR MY FATHER

I sometimes sit and wonder, dad are you with me? and are you sad?
I think of the time I had with him here on earth
He was a this frail, little man who loved the Lord 
He certainly did all he could, he loved yellow for he stood out in a crowd
My dad was a wonderful person and friend
You just had to do for him, he was always so happy and never sad
To have some help from time to time, he loved you to come see him
He was a true man of God
He went to church and gave all he had
He never had extravagant things
He loved the basics of having furniture and clothes
When I gave him the rocking chair for Fathers Day in 2008,
Little did I know he was getting ready to leave this earth
I remember being so very happy to see, the smile on his face
When I would come near
The thing I am trying to express for all of us is  to love your fathers and
Give them your trust
For you never know that this little man from God in yellow 
He may still be sitting in the church he loved. 
I remember always my father he was, the light of my life and now he is with the
Lord above
Love your fathers and let them know that you truly love them so.....

The Ending Yet Not

The time has came to an end,
My heart is beating fast,
I want to embrace you,
For ever you shall be mine.

Why is love so hard?
My tears fall and fall,
Memories will remain in my mind,
I don't like this ending,
I wanted happy ending.

All I wanted is a small house,
With a happy family,
I wanted to be what I didn't,
See with my parents.

God why is he fading off,
He is everything I got!
I searched hard,
To find the one I want.

I feel rushed to obtain my mind,
The words just keep on,
Coming in rush,
As if you are leaving,
At this moment and on,

I want to talk to my best friend,
To look in your eyes is hard,
My emotions run,
My tears cant stop!

To say goodbye is hard,
To have no one to turn to,
When I am happy and sad,
When you are alone,
I want to be by your side,
Every where you go,
I want to be there with,

My heart has the deepest cut,
I want you to be close to me,
Like we were before,
I feel angry with God!!
Why are you leaving me?

This isn't the vision I had in mind,
Best friends and lovers forever apart,
I wanted you to be the one,
To hold my hand and get married.

TOGETHER

Me with you and you with me
You are what set me free
Together we can face our fear 
Our love can take us any where 
You make my world complete,
Together always you and me. 
Through sickness and in health 
In poverty or in wealth 
We are unstoppable 
But so loveable
Without any reason
Anytime or any season
We love each other, 
Care for one another
Together forever in harmony 
Once we are together things fall into place and we are happy 
In anger or in kindness
Whether all seeing or in blindness
Together we are strong
Loving hearts keeps us young
Yes now my dream has come true 
Now I can be happy and be with you

For you and I become one

And I trust God for everything
 
On this day..
I'll promise to love you always

No matter what we may face in future
 
On this day..
I'll promise that I'll be with you until we grow old
And You are better than anything you can compare in this world.

Don't Try It

A single kiss from thy lovely lips,
so sweet and so divine,
yet I taste posion upon your tongue.

Your beauty so glorious,
like a blooming rose so beautiful,
yet, why do mine eyes go blind
in the sight that you walk along with another?

Yes you, walk with another,
arm under arm,
lips touching lips in romantic kisses,
it makes my blood boil,
for mine lips are dry.

For mine eyes have seen your glory,
yet no one here listens to my story.
You are evil, yes you are,
don't try to deny,
Listen to a man of experience,
you might as well save some expense.

I write of our long romantic walks
we took together, under the shade of olive trees,
how we went apple picking in autumn time,
and made love in the foyer.

Nomore of that sweet and passionate love,
nomore silent kisses in the night,
when the wind blows hard against the branches,
that tape violently on my windowpane. 
Nomore somber tears shed, when you got sick,
and nomore warm embraces when you shed tears of betrayal.

Betrayal now is a game played by a fool,
such as I,
to think I'd have a happy life with you?
Huh, only a fool would think such a thing,
but now I sit, looking at the foyer,
where we once made sweet, passionate love,
nomore will that foyer be filled with exotic pleasure.
Nomore will you be filled with smiles and exotic pleasure.
I've done my job, as a good man shall do,
now pack your things and get of my stage,
the spotlight yawns for anew,
and the audience grows tired and restless of you.

Now I live life anew,
you too shall see life in new eyes,
walking hand and hand with the blond, blue eyed devil
you call your own.
Shall he take one kiss from your lips,
and die of the posion he tastes on your tongue,
shall he go blind, when he sees your true, black beauty?
He will see the ugly soul, covered up by white rags,
and cheap makeup,
and then he will come to me,
and shake my hand in condolence
and say, "You were right!"

Now you are all alone,
looking for another, as you did many times before,
Now you are alone, walking an open road,
spying on another,
fear of being alone.
Now, you see when you play games with a good man's emotions,
don't try it,
because a good man is not meant to be toyed with.

I wish a Happy Valentine
to the receiving Soup committee; 
our Linda, Anne-Lise and Sid,
that cultured are, polite and pretty.

Three rose bouquets of color red
that are romantic and poetic,
with cordial sentiments address
their personalities magnetic.

I'm sending happy smiles and hugs,
my garden's trees Spring leaves that glisten,
a Valentine and shining sun
that to their poetry shall listen.

My citrus trees' light greening leaves
salute all three with playful dancing
incited by the breeze amidst
nice Sycamores and Palms romancing.

Pomegranates and Cherry trees
have not yet bloomed and still are dormant,
but slowly started to appease
romantically and smile buoyant...

Ladies:

My thankful and poetic files
with hearts and chocolates of Athens,
appreciate your welcome smiles
amidst my Olive trees and Aspens.

Right Now

In the exact moment that I am right now
I stand in a sea of vulnerability;
susceptible to the effects of causes around me
and since I am fully aware, 
I own my surroundings
I am one with sounds and vibrations
resonating from the earth;
I am that pulse of the drum beat 
thats been thrashing 
inside me since birth

Right now, I am exactly as I am
deeply flawed and misjudged
used, victimized and persecuted
Right now I am you in the absolute

Right now, I am exactly as I am
balanced, whole and complete
attracting abundance and certainty  
Right now I am peace - still you
 
Right now, I am exactly as I am

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

**chorus** 
Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 


Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 

*chorus*

I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night
Ooh…ohh…

*Chorus* 

Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 

*chorus*

Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

BEAUTY IN LIFE SPONTANEITY

Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined
Experiences uncovers blues and rhymes one couldn't find
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Culture, law, ethics and education; man learns and understand
Defining, refining and reminding they try to do to mankind
Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined

Attempt to break traditions,"outside tries", don't be confined
Falling and committing mistakes will not leave anyone behind
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Reach for something in the distance, consider a wise stand
Drench without inhibitions, "LA VITA E BELLA" bear in mind
Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined

Anxieties, fear, poverty and inferiority they can blind
Yet, live! live! embrace whole life! don't ever decline! 
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Remember! NOT everyone can be given a fair second chance
Affectionate at heart and sagacious mind, manage to combine 
Blank pages of life - spontaneous, unscripted, undefined
Begin to indite, though endings pave unsure and unplanned

Precious Stones

Little boy with heavy pockets 
Make my eyes pop out their sockets.
Every stone your eyes find shiny,
Whether big, however tiny.
You swoop them up, your pockets full
Every stone has magical pull.
Your shelves all lined with precious stones
You polished as you brought them home.
Before you go to bed each night 
You feel each one holding them tight.
Then as you sleep snug in your bed
Precious stones sparkle in your head.

She worries so much

She worry’s so much

She worries in case he’ll leave her
In her crazy kind of mind
Old memories they haunt her
And now they’ve made her blind
She does not see reality
She’s living in a dream
She’s built herself a nightmare
It’s just the way it seems.

She doesn’t see him laughing
And singing all the time
And how he is so loveable
And writes her lovely rhymes
How he cares so much when she is down
She never see those things
She sees the horror in her mind
That her thoughts so often bring.

When will she ever see him?
The way he really is
He’s wrote five thousand poems for her
All filled with loves sweet bliss
But is it not too late for her
When she lives back in the past
The damage done by foolish acts
It be so very vast

Work

Work.
Toil.
The pain I put in the ground.
For such a precious thing.
Corn. 
The family enjoys their meal.
They plant their leftover kernels.
And wait for me to tend to them.
Work. 
An endless cycle in which happiness is born.

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.

Remembering Your Lost Love Again

Many many years from now on a busy morning, suddenly for a moment Mallika my name in your mind, it will force you to stop and look at the sky and from your heart will come out a deep sigh, memories of love, suddenly so fresh like a 'dewed' morning rose remembering your lost love again absentmindedly you will touch my last gift with moist eyes, "love thy name is eternity" your fingers will follow this line on that bone china vase, I know time will go slow though tears will flow faster and I will be nowhere near you "before the next teardrop falls", only my memories closer,nearer to you, happy,joyful,cheerful,pleasant days when the moon rose in the sky just for us, will these glimpses of happy days wipe tears from your eyes?

Am I Crazy, to Love You

Am I crazy, or am I just talking to myself?
Look at yourself,
Crazy maniac
dacing through twilight suns
in sunshine colored dresses.
And you say I'm the crazy one.
Please, don't make me laugh,
I am too much annyoid with taught lessons,
of life and death and love is a magical thing
but I am not impressed till my Gypsy Queen
comes up from the shoreline of the Middle East
and comes and lays next to me, as we watch the ships sail
through the Golden horn of Old Istanbul
into the bay of Asia Minor.
You say I am crazy, Am I or am I just talking to myself.
I believe I am having a conversation that has no end about your beauty,
I talk to whomever has an open ear, and even if people listened,
Who would care about what I have to say?

Since I first laid eyes upon your beauty,
I melted and you took my sanity away from me,
you took my innocence away and turned me into a worried monster.
I love you, and you take me home with you
to meet your father and mother,
both poets who made love and created a beautiful poem called you.
I am in love with you, your songs you sing,
sounding better than a nightingale in the midst of the twilight.
Walking the seashores with your mother as I talk to your father.
He isn't listening, all though he is a good actor,
for he acts if he knows what I say to him.
I talk of you and marriage,
throwing of the rice, exchanging of the golden crowns,
the tolling of church bells, and a happy reception afterwards.
The honeymoon, meant for the first born to carry on the family crest.

As we grow old, I want to grow old with you
Nothing now, a few thousand miles of ocean and sea
seperates us from each other.
Do not worry, for I shall come one day
in the month of May, your mother's favorite month
and I shall bring along a golden ring, a pearl necklace and two roses.
We shall walk the streets together hand and hand,
and wait for the wedding guests to arrive and see us on our way
to new beginnings in holy mantrimony.
Care for me,
I ask you one question, Am I crazy, or am I just talking to myself?
Talking to white walls that don't responed with life.
I need you, too give me a straight answer, to love me
embrace me with your beauty and let me drink from your knowledge.
For my sweet Persian Bride, I shall love you for eternity.
Now, come off the beach and cross the crossing paths
of mortality and morality and join hands with me,
as we sing the nights away, along with the sweet nightingales.
As we look into each other's eyes
I ask you, am I crazy to love you?

your bedroom window with a view

your bedroom window with a view 

passion of love 

i love the rose so much as i place it in your beautiful hair 
my ceizar 

as you stand in your window of love smiling at me 

i feel at ease 

i see you ceizar so beautiful such passion in your eyes 

taking your hand forever is a dream come true my dear 

i love the view from our new home as i awake in your arms i see this window 
such beauty to my eyes 

as i turn around i see a lady of golden glow laying so happy between the soft silk 
sheets 
of our bed 

i feel so happy my smile will never die 

my tears of love fall for happiness is the cure 

i love my angel of the light forever 


your Duncan love you my ceizar forever

The Four Letter Word

Four letters put together to create one word,
with an impeccable definition.

Love...,
It is a strong word,
Close to the heart, yet
far from the woman you Love.

Butterflies flying, flapping their
orange and white wings in the summer heat.
The butterflies flap, flap their beautiful wings
together in the summertime of Love.

For Love is beautiful, like the summer preludes!

Four letters composed, to a Chopin's masterpiece.
The Romantic pole reaches out, to touch, to hold, to Love.

For these four letters are easy to read
and put together to create a complex concept
with a universal definition.
A four letter word, easy just to say,
but it is harder to show.
For Love is a simple word made up of simple letters,
but a complex meaing that takes most lifetimes to comprehend
and others a short while.

For I've seen hearts broken
and hearts put back together,
with this simple word.
My heart burned, brused, stabbed
knows the dangers of this simple, four letter word.

Love, some think it is a game
to play when you are bored.
Destroying self-esteem of girls,
who are already weak and nieve.
They long for love, but find surrealist dreams,
and see the Man of their dreams slip away in the night.
Gone without a trace.
While she is sucked into false promises,
from simple minded boys,
with only one thing on their mind.

Love..., it is a joke to some.
"I love you," is a laughing stock,
while a slap in the face, and disrespect is in fashion.
Girls, foolish girls walking in lonesome heartbreak,
saying they are in Love.
It is sad to see, and hard to hear, I know it is.

And to me Love is sometimes fair,
and most times a cruel joke.
Love, this four letter word is simple to say, but hard to comprehend.

Love me and I shall take you by the hand
show you caves of mystery,
and skies of grace and meadows, filled with flowers,
dedicated just for you, no one else, but you.
We can make Love on the sandy beaches, under the moonlit sky
under the still stars and shooting ones too.
Have a romantic dinner of oyster-shells and champange and kiss each other,
till we drown in intoxication and fall asleep in each others arms.

huh, Love... A simple, four letter word, that is easy to say,
but even harder to show.

A Mile Away

I am closer than I was yesterday,
I am one heart beat closer than yesterday,
I am one step closer than I was yesterday,
I am one breath closer than I was yesterday,
I am one more mile closer to you,
than I was yesterday.

I cannot wait
to travel the last mile,
and join you hand and hand,
hold you close to my heart,
so we can share our love together,
show the world,
make them wrong,
and smile at the envious faces.
One more mile,
that is all I have left to travel
to be with you,
for an endless lifetime
we shall go on,
into the sunlight;
and smile,
and kiss
and make love.
Drink red wine,
and watch the ships cross the bay
and into the channel
and soon out setting sail on the sea.

One mile closer to you,
One day closer to you,
One heart beat closer to you,
Until me and you are together
and are hearts get fused together
and we share love together
forever,
and no one shall come between us,
no devil, no demon,
No curse, no word,
no person, no heartbreak
no past, shall come between us
and tear us apart.

One more mile,
here I come,
with a red rose in my hand,
come for your smile,
come for your love,
so cheer me on,
I'll be with you, soon.

Distant Love

The hours dwindle slowly by- 
When I want you by my side. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath 
As you kiss away my pride. 
 
The anger melts away, 
When I'm held within your arms.
My balance quickly faltering;
As I fall for all of your charms.
 
The weeks are always longer-
When I don't get to have you near.
Wishing that I could run to you- 
The distance heightening my fear. 
 
The hours go by rapidly-
When you are finally home. 
 Leaving me all by myself;
With my thoughts to roam. 
 
The cycle starts all over- 
I'm wishing that you were free. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath. 
Until you come right back to me.

Evening walk on the beach

I walked alone
along a sandy and lonely beach.
The raging waves from the sea
crashed onto the slimy sea shore.
The riding waves were white and bare,
but when they violently crashed, turned white and black.

I walked along the lonely beach.
Listening to the seagulls chatting
on silver rocks and boulders.

I sat near the shore.
The waves coing in and out
crashing violently on the silver rocks and boulders.
I sat there, lonely skipping pebbles into the vase and endless sea.
The waves came in and swallowed the pebbles, I threw its way.

The sea crabs wabbling from side to side, came up from the shore.
They kept me company on a lone and quiet evening.
A lone dog walking without an owner
came and curled up next to me,
and barked at the chattering seagulls.
They flew in panic toward the setting of the Red Sun,
and disappeared into the evening paradise.

The lone dog gazed upon the red sheld sea crabs,
and chased their wabbling bodies away
back down to the slimy sea shore.
And at the setting of the evening, I was alone.

Soon I had seen something
that had shocked me,
A young and beautiful gypsy woman.
She crossed my path along the lonesome beach.
All of a sudden the beach became full with love and life of all kind.

The lilacs, and roses, and violets and daisies
grew tall and bloomed, like madmen.
The waves pulled in by the full moon,
that shinned upon me and the Gypsy Woman.
She was decorated with ragged skirts and blouses,
with shinny, white pearls around her neck,
and golden bracelets around her wrists.

She smiled at me.
I smiled back at her.
Her hair black, with a vail of flowers around her head.
She stopped me and held my hand.
I was astonished and afraid.

What was this stunning and beautiful woman doing to me?
A victim of lost love and heartbrake.
I had no money, no jewlery.
I asked her what she wanted.
She replied with loneliness in her voice;
"To be loved."

I pulled her in, and kissed her,
and whispered softly in her ear,
decorated with silver earrings;
"Me too."

We joined hands and walked the lonesome sandy beach.
Listening to the waves, now softly coming in and pulling out.
The shore, now not so slimy, 
and the silver rocks and boulders sleeping so peacefully.
I turned to her and she smiled at me.
I held her in my arms and kissed her upon her sweet brow.

 Twilighting glow of the sky..
 Wanna fly so high..

 Sparkling amidst the million stars..

 As like the blossom were kissed by soft rain..
 Your arrival in life diminished all my pains..
 
 God has entwined me..with my emarald diamonite gem..
 Enlightening new vistas in life as like your next aim.. 

 At an astounding pace time flew..
 But When i didn‘t see you..I feel like..Life is been dew..

 Your divine presence in life rejuvenates me..
 Every tick of my heartbeat resonating wit your‘s or whatever it will be..

 Your innumerable naughtiness made me silly..
 But yep, your beautifying nature had an fragrance in life like lilly..

 As like snow crested the nestled mountains..
 You cuddled my persona..like a sip of fountains..

 Being With you, Life is euphorically elated..
 Full of high spirit and delighted..

 Thanks for being accompanying me my theist..

 Your admirer with lots n lots of Love:

I THINK THAT I LOVE YOU

Whenever   I  see  you ,
Naively  I  giggle ,
just  like  an  excited  toddler.
When  I  sleep  ,
I  only  hold  a  single  dream .
In  that  dream  I  see  you  smile .
I  smile  back .
When  you  are  happy  ,
I  feel   fulfilled .
When  you  ask ,
I  feel  that  I  have  to  give  everything .
When  I  am   with  you ,
my   heart  carries  this  certain  feeling .
I  feel  as  if  I  am  about  to  do  something .
Something  precious .
As  if  ........ ,
as  if  I  am  about  to  fly .
Sometimes   I  feel  as  if  I  am  about  to  win ,
a  trying  race ,
against  a  million  challengers .
If  I  am  alone ,
I  go  back  to  the  last  hour  I saw  you .
Alone  I  smile ,
and  search   everywhere ,
as  if  I  have   lost  something .
As  if  I  am  looking  for  something  .
Something  precious .
It`s  like  I  am  happy .
Maybe  I  don`t  know .
I  guess  I  like  you .
I  don`t  really   know .
Maybe....... maybe ,
maybe  I  know ,
I  think  that ........ ,
I  think  ,  I  love  you .

Porn No More

I've watched the war from behind closed doors;
Eyes too glued to close.
And now knowing what's in store, there's porn no more.
God's love is the only hope we know.
We are forgiven because of the love that is Jesus.
We are saved because of the love that is Jesus.
We give our lives to the Father for we are His children and He loves us.
We are loved!
No matter what we've done, we are loved!
Confess and ask for forgiveness;
This is such a beautiful gift!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
You forgive me!
You save me!
You change me!
I am changed!
I am new!
I am renewed!
I am forgiven!
I am saved!
I am changed!
There's porn no more
For God's hope is in store!
There's porn no more
For God's love is the hope of the world!

My Heart Sings

As the first rays of sunshine
wakes me out of my sleepy slumber,
I sat up in bed and looked at my hands.
The taste of stale cigarette smoke of cheap red wine
stained my taste buds.
I walked out of bed,
turned on the radio
(to the classical station)
and my heart beats to the tune
my life and soul smile as the sun shines in my room.
I hear God whispering in my ear
I hear all the words of the world
talking to me,
and I can hear my heart sing a little.
I read my poetry,
get dressed go for a walk,
I smile at the faces that I pass;
The cars I pass,
the houses,
the trees,
the dry lawns,
burnt and that have not been watered in days.
I smile at them and they all smile back,
and my heart sings a little,
and I dance to its simple tune.

My heart sings and I dance too:
slowly melodies,
fast jigs,
rapid jazz and swing music
and waltzes to the chopin masterpieces,
and the romantic stories, novels, the poems,
that fancy your mind with its ryhme schemes,
and after I read such romantic beauty
I smile, and I listen closely to my heart,
and with every beat,
it lets out a verse or two, from a familiar song
that caught my ear on the radio,
and my heart sings
and I smile,
and the world smiles back.

Feeling such beauty
love and romance
it is such a good feeling to live with;
and as the night rolls on,
and the sun goes away
I sit at my desk
writing poetry,
with a cigarette slowly burning away with time,
and I am stuck,
getting drunk of red wine,
I sit back in my chair,
and listen to my heart,
and he sings alittle
and I can write again.
So, there we sit together,
writing poetry,
smoking cigarettes,
drinking wine
to the strike of nine
and we both sing songs of love and romance
together forever.

You see me looking

Let me tell you why
It's all from my light inside

I got a beautiful heart
a beautiful mind, 
beautiful thoughts 
and a beautiful smile

Happy on the inside
Happy on the outside
Cmon baby let's ride
and you can catch the vibe

We got beautiful hearts

Where The Next Dollar Will Come From

I'm worried where the next dollar will come from.
Will she ever arrive?
Will she ever show up?
But why am I worrying?
Stop it!
It's all in God's Great Hands!
It's all under God's control!
It's all within His plans!
It's all His
And He will provide
Because He is our Father!
He loves us!
It's all His!
Trust Him!
I know it's difficult;
He will not lead you wrong.
He knows where you need to go.
He knows what you need to endure.
It's all His plan.
It's all in His Hands!
Lay down your life;
Give the control.
He is in control!
Thank You Father!
Trust Him!
It will all be okay!
Trust Him!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
Thank You Holy Spirit!
I love You always!
I trust You always!

Yes, yes I do!

New Beginning

As I wake up I can see the sun shine,
Smiling because everything's divine,
I'm happy feeling so alive,
I have a rush of emotions that are hard to define.
I lay down at night and my mind plays peekaboo,
Sleeping so peacefully dreaming of you,
Having anxiety contemplating on my next move,
Can this be happening is this really true.
The wounds on my heart are starting to heal,
Walls are breaking down from feelings I conceal,
Am I this lucky because to feels so surreal,
I deserve this because I've been through some rough ordeals.
I'm blessed because you found your way to me,
The emptiness going away because I'm the chosen nominee,
The loneliness is settling turning into glee,
God sent you in my life so it has to be meant to be.
Talking all day morning to night,
Having deep conversations the connection's so right,
Bonded together like glue can't wait to unite,
You've given me the inspiration again to write.
Joys taking over this once broken soul,
Mending the once broken pieces back into a whole,
With our feelings combined it'll be out of control,
Because it's my heart that you stole.

BROTHER AND SISTER BY HEART

Blood relatives, we are not
By laws or marriage we are didn't knot
Nor characters in theater or movie plot
Yet he and I care, We both allot

He is from middle east
I am from the southeast
God is good cause he let us meet
Bad or good times, no quits

He gives me this sentimental necklace
Which I always wear and trace
Symbol of my so called talent
Refreshed and flowered in vent

I miss him so much
I wish he knows this such
I wish a hug that clutch
We bond with no match

I called him my brother
He calls me his little sister
Different faith, different race
Yet, all dear we are square

Dedicated and written for my friend, Lisa Giessinger, as a special message from her to her mother, Hazel – about a most memorable day they spent together.

 
To My Mother Hazel Thanks for that Memorable Day This poem is specifically Being written just for you I requested it from a friend For she knows just what to do That special day we spent together Is so very memorable for me, I’d say I want it to be memorable for you too With a poem written in a rhyming way We’ve had our ups and downs in life With probably most of them being down You raised me to know how life can be Not easy to cope, with down things all around Well I’ve stepped up to a new level To be happy no matter what the hell Of any negative surroundings to be I live thankful that my life is all well That special day started out so bad for me As I was headed for back injections again I was really happy you were taking me there With a comfort feeling knowing we are kin It seemed like the first time in a very long time Where we just enjoyed each other that day You were kind of like that sweet rose One stops to smell along the way In this path I have traveled Through many overgrown weeds It was refreshing and pleasant this time With no discussion of what someone needs We got along together talking and laughing It gave me such a lasting good impression We even ate at Don Julio’s afterwards I sure hope you had just as much fun I want you to know how much I appreciate this time we spent together Making this a most memorable day for me To truly cherish for always and forever Now let me tell you, that day did get worse With everyone putting me down everywhere You were the rose amongst the trash talkers It felt good to know my Mom really does care Even if everything dips to the downside Within the journeys of my life I may go through No one could ever take our shared moments away They’re in my heart forever and I’ll always love you I had the best time with me and my Mom If I told the world, that’s what I’d say So I really want to thank you Mom For that most memorable day Love, Lisa Florence McMillian (Flo)

Princess Fairy Tinsel

Princess Tinsel.

It was a day in springtime in the valley
All the Elves and fairies gathered round
Today it was the coronation morning
Fairy Princess Tinsel would be crowned.

As blackbirds and some thrushes in the treetops
They warbled out a happy sounding song
The crickets and the frogs joined in, in chorus
You could tell that there was something going on.

Fairy Princess Tinsel, she was lovely
And on this very day she would be queen
And all the woodland people were ecstatic
For such a caring princess she had been.

So then the valley's filled with happy laughter
As fairy dust did sparkle everywhere
For Princess Tinsel soon she would be ruler
And oh, that lady was so very fair.

And as I end this story our Queen Tinsel
Has married her the prince who now be king
And peace and happiness does rule the valley
Which now they call "the land of everything".

I

If its money I got its money ill keep. If its money I have its money ill weep. If its love that I give its love ill receive. For I am but no one who just see's beneath. Some say your only as strong as you feel, but how could we change..in a place that's so unreal. People are hearing but..not really hearing. Why is the world so blind. I keep on screaming and screaming and screaming for things to be revolutionized. I am just a small song in a world full of cries, laughter, tears and french-fries.

Lisa Maree

Dedicated to my darling daughter. Lisa Maree, the kindest girl in the world


Lisa Maree

Lisa Maree, you baffle me
You just don’t seem to care
You throw your money all around
And people who won’t share
Will try to take you for a ride
And you can’t always see
What some folk try to do to you
You’ve too much trust in thee.

Lisa Maree, it’s plain to see
That you’re a special girl
Though sometimes you go off on one
And mind goes in a whirl
Your heart is gold, pure solid gold
You’re as soft as heated honey
You have a sense of humor too
You even think 'you’re' funny.

Some might find you hard to take
These fickle kinds of folk
Will run you down for being you
And treat you like a joke
But fickle folk don’t mean a thing
You’re far above the rest
When you are helping someone out
That’s when you’re at your best.

Changing Life's Script into a Happy Saga

Life is a happy adventure when you reach your dreams.
Finding you, my Ingrid, has filled my days with sunbeams.
Two hearts that God has bound together as one, are we.
Laughing and playing, walking through life, soul mates, spirits free!
I love you.
Are we not drawn onward to new era? 
Changing life’s script into a happy saga -
Before you, I walked through life with sorrow, bleakly.
Many years of loneliness, I had to face bravely.
I thank God above you came to Florida from Norway.
One day in my doorway, mayday became a parfait…stay!
True love arrived, unplanned.
I wanna hold your hand.
Always and forever, our true hearts sing in cadence.
We agreed; pledged our love with secure assurance. 
Time is bursting with thought, serenity…joy.
Happy tears fill my eyes for I am not your toy.
When I feel like I am running on empty, you take my hand.
You and I strolling through life in our woodland.-
New tingling hearts embrace their sweetest spark.

My Beautiful Penelope

Oh my sweet and beautiful Penelope
Oh how beautiful you are, and when I see you come down
to the pearl gates of immortality and come down to see me,
as we join hands and walk the shorelines
I see you my beautiful Penelope, she you who walks through beauty,
We shall join in immortality.
Your heart built of stone and paved in golden
you born out of the beauty of a rose and maturity of a lady
you are the one who never sings a depressing and low melody.

My Beautiful Penelope,
The one beautiful lady form Napoli
Oh, how you walk in such glory.
See me look over you and hear my heart beat
for you, I love you, see me for I care about you.
Take it from me, for I shall take you by the hand
and as our shadows rise to meet us in the morning
I can make love to you, then we shall love the night away.
My beautiful Penelope, as I take you through the twilight
we dream of shooting stars falling from the evening skies,
as we hold each other close,
take me and I shall take you and bring each other together,
and fuse us together with a sweet and loving kiss.

She is my beauty and I love her
she takes me by the hand and curels me to her warm chest.
Cares for me,
Makes me laugh,
Makes me feel good and uplifts my soul
everytime I lay my almond eyes upon her beauteous body.
My beautiful Penelope, oh how I see the glory in your blue eyes,
your luxurious, long flowing hair colored golden
like the rays of the morning sun.

Dare to care
about such beauty in her eyes?
Dare to care
about such beauty in her cries,
as she tells me of her suicide struggles?
I hold you close to me
and I hope you to be
my love for all eternity.
See me and I see you to tell me about you and your day,
as you come home and say,
That you love me.
And I shall say I love you too,
with a zealous attitude in my voice
I shall take you into our room and you shall tell me about your day.
You shall tell me, under the shadows of the trees, the houses, the red rocks.
I shall show you love in a handful of roses,
deliver you a bouquet of roses and violets,
as we see the breeding lilacs grow tall,
we shall lay in the grasslands and look up at the clouds,
that shape themselves into beautiful paintings in the glorious blue sea
we call the sky.

Oh My beautiful Penelope
my glorious maiden lady,
who sings such beauty in her melody
that it brings tears to nightingales' eyes.
My beautiful Penelope, you are my love
here are a dozen roses for you to express and show my love for you,
my beautiful Penelope.
Love is eternal with you.

Jimi's love poem

I gaze into those beautiful eyes
Your lips, they never tell me lies
Do you wonder what's going on inside?
What's this feeling I try so hard to hide
You see right through me, see me as a whole
Peer into my soul
I am open and vulnerable
Make me lose all control
Do I dare
Show how deeply I care? That anywhere
I would go, as long as you were there
All I ever truly wanted was already mine
How could I have been so blind?
Come to me and find a love so kind
Burning blue, pure and true
I feel the passion Inside of you
Wake me up in your embrace
Doesn't matter the time or place
As long as I can see your face
I crave you, your hands, your touch
Only you can make me feel this rush
True love is what I've found
Beauty spoken without a sound
His stare, his lips, his kiss
Not a moment of this dare I miss
The words you give to me, how could I forget?
Being yours for a lifetime is something I could never regret

Beyond The Distance And The Days

Our love grows stronger,
Even beyond the distance,
Even beyond the days.
I know you're with me always
And I'm always with you;
In God together we're together forever
And physically we'll be together forever soon.

Yes I live, but I strife
Finding you beneath the stars
Misng You my life chars.

A love story

A love story

There lived in the heart of the country
In a place called Crystal brook
A little girl named Tahlia Rose
Who had that kind of look
That said she was a dreamer
But she was beautiful
She was a maid of so much charm
This girl, she had it all.

Her smile was like the morning sun
Her eyes were like the moon
And oh, she had a lovely voice
She sang a pretty tune
And everybody loved her so
Cause she sparkled like the stars
And people loved to look at her
They came  from near and far.

She grew up, and looked so grand 
All the best folk all around
They sought her out to marry her
But she would not be bound
By any but a special soul
Her suitor, he must be
A man of rich and sweet compassion
And much integrity.

He must love her like no other could
She must be his heart and soul
And they would love, forever more
For fate gave them this role.

Then came a man, a poor, poor man
He roamed from town to town
With a smile just like a blooming rose
He never wore a frown
Her parents never liked the lad
And banned the whole affair
But our two, they carried on
All wrapped in loves sweet care.

And so I finish off this tale
By telling all of you
That these two lovers had their day
There love it was so true
That fate did join the two as one
In a bond to last forever
Though that was fifty years ago
These two are still together.

Have I told you lately that I love you

Have I told you

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you just how much I care?
Have I ever told you?
when I am with you darling
The power of bliss and joy is everywhere

Have I told you how my heart is yearning?
To feel you here within my sweet embrace
Have I ever told you?
That whenever I am with you
I melt within your beauty and your grace

I look at you and feel such joy within me
You smile at me and everything feels grand
Have ever I told you 
When you are with me Darling
A feeling comes that I don’t understand

I know that there will never be another
Could fill my heart with love the way you do
My darling let me tell you
You’re all I ever live for
I love you with a love so pure and true.

Have I told you that each night when I am sleeping?
Your image haunts my dreams and gives me bliss
You make me feel so happy
Every moment I am with you
You mesmerize me, dear, I tell you this

Those sweet little things

Those sweet little things

We’re sitting in the living room
The TV droning on
As I just sit there dreaming
Or write a little song
My lady she’s just sitting there
With a crossword or a game
An attentive look upon her face
It’s every night the same.

And yet, you know I worship it
All the time we spend together
One moment in her company
It could go on forever
All filled with peace and harmony
It’s the sweetest thing on Earth
Just sitting in that living room
It has, for me such worth.

Once I was a doubter
Of the very best things in life
My boredom caused much trouble
And gave me so much strife
But now I know it’s the little things
They’re what life’s all about
It took me such a long, long time
But now I’ve found this out.

Wish I Knew

It was just words that we would whisper 
To get us through the nights
Or dreams that came to visit us
When life just wasn't right

A comfort from being lonely
Thoughts to occupy the mind
Never really possible
It was never the right time

And after I was quiet
When the lines began to blur
You found where I was hiding
Knew right where my thoughts were

And you swooped in and won me
Took me right off of my feet
Showed me what is really out there
When two unselfish hearts meet

Showed me how to share in a moment
To be kissed without a rush
To be held onto with a passion
And be graced with your soft touch

Now you've set up camp inside of me
But you've gone so far away
So the part of you that's mixed in me
Misses the real you every day

And you took some of me with you
I'm not sure you even know
If you feel me thinking of you
Wishing you didn't have to go

Always waiting for a word from you
Hoping you're happy 
Wishing you the best there is
Even if it isn't me

But somehow looking for the happy end
Hoping you miss me too
Wondering where our story leads
I really wish I knew.

September Weather

Ah, the september weather is here,
the trees turn firery red and orange,
and the leaves gently fall to the surface.

Fall is here,
and the grass turns from green to yellow,
the souls of many change their ways.

From going on beaches in sun
to walking on wet streets,
with jackets on.

September weather is here,
too most it is depressing to see,
such change in the world.

But I love it.
The girlfriends and boyfriends go away,
and that makes me happy.
Then I go apple picking.

I pick red apples,
from low, hanging apple trees.
and I eat one, while walking down the trail.

Fall is here,
the time of death,
the last of sunshine.

I don't argue,
I love fall,
it is so cosy and it gives me hope.

Hope that a day will come again,
when the sun pops its head out
and the warmth returns.

September weather is the best,
when summer is gone, but not quite,
and the cool breeze sweaps through your open windowpane.

I love fall,
it gives me hope,
that with death comes life.

A beautiful love song I'll sing you

A beautiful love song

A beautiful love song I’ll sing you
I write for you two songs a day
And I want to sing them forever
In these writings I just want to say
That forever I love you, my darling
You’re my one only lady forever
Oh yes I will love you with all of my heart
Until the first day of never.

What a beautiful, wonderful lady
You be, you’re my lady divine
And all of your kisses and all of your sunshine
They go to my head like fine wine
Whenever I’m with you my Darling
I feel like I’m walking on air
You give me a feeling, so sweet so tender
I love you my lady so fair.

Each day is a wonderful story
All filled with such beauty and grace
Because my heart floats for you Darling
Whenever I see your sweet face
I know that I could not forsake thee
For you give my world so much bliss
I can’t help but love you, there’s something about you
I guess that’s the way that it is.

The Letter

What is this I see under my Christmas tree?
It's a letter, from Fifty year old me.

Complete with a photo, I don't look half bad.
The very best thing, I'm not looking sad.

I tell myself don't worry, things are okay.
When you turn Seventeen, you'll run away.

Life turns out better than what you think.
You are not like dad, you don't turn to drink.

There's lots I could tell you about tomorrow.
Then you wouldn't learn from joy and sorrow.

Live with real purpose, take some chances.
Kiss pretty girls, go to some dances.

Tell people you love them, show them you care.
As much as you wish, they won't always be there.

You will love yourself once you realize.
The things you've been told, are nothing but lies.

So go out in the World, it's your happy place
Even if today, that is not the case

You are the one living, my yesterday
Trust your choices, things go the right way

I read my own words, from Fifty year old me
I'm happy to know, one day I'll be free.

I Want

I want to sing you
I want to write you
I want to watch you
And describe you

I would like to compose you
You, my ninth symphony
To put you on a stave
To play your melody

I want to sculpt you
Without engraving too much
Hardly anything to change
Some details to fix

I want to photograph you
Under different lights
To whip with the flash
All those artifices that are hiding you

I want to break your records
Go through your body's limits
Jump higher, run further
When man an athlete is one

I could go on with other arts
But none of them seem good enough to define you
So I'll go on in which my words are the finest
For you, I'll never stop writing

You, Me, Us, Everyone

Flowers
Not named
Unknown to those with no curiosity
Buds, that dream of one day blooming
Being, more than they are
Flowers living
Being
Thriving
Touched by those who love
Protected by those who wish to love
Wishing to be more than they are
Buds, not truly knowing if they are ready for the world
Hoping they are strong enough 
Wishing to be the best
You, Me, Us, Everyone

Summertime Re-Lyric

Summertime…and the livin’ is easy,                                                
Flowers growin’ and the sun’s sittin’ high.                                    
Your Daddy’s rich and your Momma’s so good lookin’;               
So hush, pretty baby…you got no reason to cry. 

One of these days, you’re gonna rise up smilin’.
Take a look around and think you’ve got it all.
You’ve got your Momma’s looks, all your Daddy’s money,
And all the boys in town are at your beck and call.

Summertime…and the livin’ is so easy,
Laughin’, singin’, havin’ so much fun.
No time to stop and think about your future
And what life will bring when your Summer’s  done.

‘Cause Summertime, it don’t last forever.
Breezes cool and the leaves begin to fall;
And in your quiet moments, you sit and wonder
How you've come so far, but have no love at all.

Yes, Summertime…and the livin’ was so easy; 
Ain’t it sad how fast the good times fly; 
And now your Momma’s looks and all your Daddy’s money
Another sweet, warm Summer’s day they cannot buy.

A Feeling That I Knew Too Well

A feeling that I knew too well;
With every word you spoke I fell-
Falling deeper into the bliss;
Longing for your every kiss.

Without you here my heart grows fonder;
Around the park I start to wander-
And think about how you make me feel-
The longing starting to become surreal.

Giving meaning to my life,
You lift me up from pain and strife.
I thought it was a feeling that I knew-
But with your guidance the passion grew.

Spiraling up with every touch-
Never wanting to leave your clutch. 
Waiting for your familiar glance-
Missing you with every chance.

Drunk in the City of Angels

Drunk in the lost city,
lost in the vase beauty of the angels
drunk, smoking on park benches.

Freaks, trannys, whores and pimps,
looking at me;
a one of a kind.

No one has ever seen me on the streets of L.A.,
beacause I am a one of a kind,
a gentleman, a drunken buffoon.

I hurl myself at the bars,
and the whores look at me and smile,
and I wave them over, and they come.

40 bucks for a night a good fun,
a night of exotic pleasure,
in the heart of the sleeping angels.

Drunk walking,
two in the morning,
police stop me, sleeping on a park bench.

Warm always warm,
never cold,
the city that is lost.

A city known as the city of angels,
yet how many devils I have counted.
How much evil I have seen,
how much temptation rules in the gutters.

Walking drunk on madness,
in this dirty city,
as I look for a bar before last call.

I find one,
I go in,
order a beer.

I drink with pleasure
I start to write,
I light a cigarette and smoke.

A grey cloud forms around me,
"Last call for alcohol," the barkeep shouts.
I raise my hand, he comes over.

"What will yah have?" he asks,
"Another beer and my check."
On the house, free drinks, on the house.

After a night in the city of angels,
I find myself a cosy park bench,
and fall asleep, dreaming of the angels I had never seen.

Bittersweet

You make me smile , you make me laugh , you make me cry , and you make me sad . Deep down I love you with all of my heart. I love the warmth of your body and your soul all as a whole. Your one hell of a man , and sometimes I admit you got me wrapped around your hand. Ill come running like the wind , just because you said so. When we first met we had a chemistry that a story was untold. We are so much alike in so many ways , its crazy .... laughing , smiling , hugging , kissing ,listening , talking , butterflies in my stomach. You make me think way to much , my head starts to hurt , ups and downs , happy but sad..... stories untold ... feelings being hidden , not much being said ... just the voices in each others head .... irritated because we can't get our feelings out to each other ... mad for days and not saying a single word....the hurt and pain .... just from talking to you all day .... that leaves me standing in the cold all alone not knowing what is going on... confused and abused .... happy and joyful this is bittersweet and very unsure... Im not sure what to call us , but I need something more....

I have loved it all

I have loved it all

I have loved it all
Adored the whole of it
All those foolish dramas
The dirt and all the grit
The joy, and all it’s sorrows
I’ve really loved it all
All in all my life is beautiful.

I’ve heard folk moan about old age
But not me, never, no
Cause every day forever more
I’ll always feel that glow
That comes from living happily
Within this now, and here
I’m holding each new day so very dear.

I have loved it all
I have, that’s how I be
Oh, I’m so glad to be here
With my philosophy
My fate knows what she’s doing
And she’ll do right by me.

You’ll never hear me moaning
About my years so far
Cause all is an adventure
With me, the leading star
And when I leave this shell behind
I’m quite prepared to go
Though where I’m bound for then, I do not know.

My 12 Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
        A puppy that wouldn’t stop peeing on my tree.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
 	Two Turtle Doves who dropped a load, as I looked up in the tree.
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Three little kittens that my puppy, chased up daily into the tree.
On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Four sets of ornaments to replace, those destroyed by kittens in the tree.
On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Five different promises that he would again, put up, The Silly Tree.
On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Six strands of lights to replace those chewed on, by my little puppy.
On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Seven hugs and kisses, so I’d PLEASE forget, about the Blooming Tree.
On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Eight Trolls a milking, chasing cows thru all my hedgerow shrubbery.
On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Nine Trolls a dancing, that all fell on, my once beautiful garden fencing.
On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Ten Trolls a leaping, as Caroling candles, burned down into their hands.
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Eleven Trolls a smiling and ready to rebuild my burned down front porch.
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
	Twelve Trolls a hammering and a nice big bottle of Tylenol… just for me…
Plus the happy thought, I’d survived a Christmas gift, planned with love… just for me.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and best wishes for twelve days of Christmas joy.

A Fishing

Oh, I Love to Go a Fishing.
I Go Most Every Day.
There Are Stories I Could Tell,
How the Big Ones Got Away.

But Only Another Fisherman,
Could Begin to Understand,
The Excitement That I Feel,
When the Big One Hits Dry Land.

Then of Course, There's the Cleaning
And the Fun of a Big Fish Fry,
Inviting All the Neighbors
And Your Fish Story Is No Lie.

Oh, I Love to Go a Fishing.
Would You like to Come Along?
It's Quiet by the Water
And Nothing Seems Too Wrong.

It's Peaceful and Relaxing,
Except When the Cork Goes Down.
Now That's When It's Lots of Fun
And it Keeps Away the Frown.

Le Vacance Pretentieuse: Going Home

What is it to see the soil of home again?
A welcome, snow-struck and a return
To cold; sharp white contrasts sunburn.
We converse in broken tongues to men

We know, hooked on holiday language
Comprised of wandering hand signs.
Collect the car and pay parking fines,
Drive through towns and over a bridge

Until we reach the Western gateway.
Oh when will we arrive at our house?
No camels there, only field mouse
Which are eaten by our cat anyway.

The plane flies for an age, slyly yawning
Through the stretching, pealing sky,
A knife through air; what it is to fly.
Our travels over; a new day is dawning.

Now Here We Are

When fate decides to bring you love
It’s then you know it was worth waiting
After all the tragedies life has offered
Its then that it starts mending
Knowing that the best parts of life
Is just about to unfold
Hearing all those naïve advice
Not paying attention to what you were once told
In the end this is every man’s dream
To settle down and look ahead
Know that you have something to look forward to
Where there is neither remorse nor regret
It becomes a commitment one is happy to oblige
In order to make the other happy as can be
Both strive for the best in one another
And that my friends is a part of reality
No one likes the idea at the beginning
But it’s what all of us aim to find
That other half of us
And it’s carved deep inside our minds
Without anyone knowing
Until that very special day
Where you see her across from you
That’s when you know things will change.
And long comes the ceremony
We all expected and anticipated
Because at the end of this night
It will be a life that for the longest you have waited!

You Are My Everything


You Are My Everything

You are my sweet dreams at night
When I'm sleeping next to you
You are my freshness when I wake up
Each morning, feeling all renewed

You are my sunshine 
On every sunny day
Making me happy-always in a delightful way
You are my warmth on a cold, dreary night
Your arms wrapped around me, holding me tight

You are my protection
Keeping me safe from harm
You are my four-leave clover...
My sweet lucky charm

You are my lover
Baby, there could be no other
I'm so glad that you are a part of my life
And I pray that someday
You'll ask me to be your wife

You are my blessing in each and every way
And I pray to God above
That our love will forever stay

Jesus, Please Take Over Me

You've fallen down again;
How can you let darkness win?
You just scraped your knee,
You didn't break your leg.
It will all be okay;

Brush it off, my child;
Come and take my hand.
Let me help you up again;
You will be okay.

And I always will be.
I am by your side,
But this time,
Will you allow me to take the lead?

Dedicated to all of the guys who helped me to make the checklist - thanks!

The Empty Rib Slot I think I might have A perfect checklist Highlights from men Gathered now missed Yes special highlights Each man carried some Now added to my checklist For a guy having it all in one This could be the key to find The man I’m dreaming of Not with bits and pieces One filled full of love A man made for me No it would be not I should fit perfectly Into an empty rib slot Let me share this list With every one of you Then decide for yourself If it could possibly be true My first check comes from This guy with dreamy eyes He deeply touched my soul Way more than ever realized He even had a special smile That made you want to grin No matter if life was down He encouraged me to win There was the big hugger With squeezes oh so tight He lifted me off the floor Like if I was taking flight He never did grow tired Of giving me those hugs I never had to ask for them He always did it out of love Then there was the dancer He stayed light on his feet He loved dancing with me Carrying rhythm and a beat Now of course on this list There certainly has to be That best friend I count on Who can also count on me I am even going to count The good points of quality Generated from my brothers And even from my daddy From them they all carry A very good temperament Always being so easy going Not looking for an argument When I am nestled in that slot With a perfect feel of passion All of his glory will then shine As it eludes from my reflection The most important one of all He who shares a spiritual side Being spiritually open with me Not allowing his beliefs to hide I know how this all may sound Like a crazy thing that I’ve got I want the man I fit snuggly with When I match his empty rib slot Florence McMillian (Flo)

Thank You Jesus For Changing Me


Thank You Jesus For Changing Me!

Jesus reached down to my life 
and changed it!
His love touched my soul
 and “rearranged” it!

He brought to me his mercy
 and care.
That I may share his goodness 
to people everywhere!

He restored unto me the joy 
of my salvation!
And brought to my life 
a heavenly invitation!

He gave to me everything 
that I needed!
He brings the victory! 
 Satan is defeated!

He really loves you! 
 Won’t you believe him?
Just reach out to him now! 
 And receive him!

Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated

The littlest deeds still go a long way. 
So better the world and try it today. 

People don't realize the good they can do,
By holding doors open and smiling too. 

Try to be chivalrous, try to be meek. 
Try to be humble whenever you speak. 

Others will notice the way that you are. 
A light so unique, shines bright like a star. 

Relay the message, conquer the kindness. 
Replays impressive, actions are mindless. 

We live to laugh, and love to be loved.
Turn both your cheeks, when pushed and then shoved. 

Intuitiveness is a trick of the trade.
Instinctive bliss results moments well played. 

"Treat others how you want to be treated."
This motto of life makes smiles repeated. 

-Yours Truly

The Truth About Love

Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is time apart
Trying not to drown
Praying to stay loyal
Holding on to lover's promises
Dreaming of reuniting
Crying tears of hurt and joy
Thinking of you constantly
Asking God for all the best
Love is difficult
Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is faith
Love is hope
Love is trust
But love is beautiful
Oh, so beautiful
And love is worth it
Oh, so worth it
Love is in God's Hands
Love is protected
Love will come back again
Reunion again
For God is love
In Jesus' Name
We pray
Amen!

From Then To Now

Hand in hand we walked 
together into Reception
Nothing could stop us and 
together we were three
James and I LARP-ed Doctor 
Who for fun
We talked and laughed for 
hours
Because no stress was in our 
way
Anna and I smiled and laughed
And jumped on our bouncy 
castle
With nothing dividing us.

Side by side we walked 
together into Year 6
Some stranger stopped them to 
talk and broken we were alone
James and I talked about 
Doctor Who for fun
And we talked and kissed for 
hours
But misunderstanding broke us 
up
Anna and I still smiled and 
laughed
And joked about our bouncy 
castle
But secondary school was going 
to divide us.

With no one there I walked 
alone into Year 7
And a stranger became my 
friend and together we were 
two
Violet and I both loved Doctor 
Who
And James found Dominic
So James and I talked for mere 
minutes
And school started pulling us 
apart
Anna and I still laughed and 
smiled
Still promising to be friends 
Never letting it divide us

Suffocating and drowning I 
walked into Year 9
Hating how I was and feeling 
alone
Katie and Chloe were so pretty
And Violet so funny and all 
were better than me
James and I hardly talked or 
saw each other
But we still made the most of 
our friendship
As we were like family, stress 
couldn’t break us apart
Anna and I laughed but I did 
not smile genuinely
Because the bouncy castle was 
long gone
And our schools were beginning 
to divide us

Dead yet breathing I stand 
right now
And I hate who am I and every 
single detail
Fights broke us up and pulled 
us apart
So I can feel Katie, Violet and 
Chloe
Falling further out my reach
James moved house to a place 
unknown
And blamed me for never 
talking to him
But really it was because of my 
ex who was a girl
It was for something beyond 
my control
Anna and I were still friends; 
only by a thread
As she did not know about me
And how school broke me apart

So this is me now; I’m all alone
No longer the smiling young girl 
of reception
The only person talking to me 
is me
And the voice in side my head
You see; they all left me and 
always will
So now the only call I answer
Is that of my blades
And the darkness
That is constantly
Pulling me
Down

One Last Chance

Got a call from you today
Took my hand, asked me for a dance
Euphoric, what more could I say
Thank you for this One Last Chance

So excited when I heard your voice
As you reached out your hand to mine
See, I need to be with you, have no other choice
We'll be together again, so now I'm feeling fine

I want this night to last forever
Want, with you, all night to dance
Hearts soaked with love for each other
Thank you so much for this One Last Chance

Well see, you've been in my dreams for awhile now
And my love for you has never faded
In my dreams, in love with you, I always drown
Been rescued from a world so jaded

All I wanted was to see you again
To be something more than friends
To confess my love, take a stand
So thank you for this One Last Chance

I really love myself,
I'll do bad and good things,
I'll make things easier,

I can change my life in an easier way,
Now I'm sitting here like a rocking chair.
I really know, How to make all this.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I can do this all things,
In a different ways.
Go! go! go! go!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Funny person in everyday,
I make many person happy in a day,
I've wanted to have more friends,
Like many people live in our earth.
Everyday is a happy day,
Like everyone do this to their self,
I've wanted to have more friends,
Like many people live in our earth.

Do not travel the lonesome road

Do not travel the lonesome road
alone with no one by your side,
sitting on park benches all alone
with no one to come to your need,
do not travel the open road alone.
That one dark road that kicks up dust
when you drag your feet across the ground,
that lonesome road that has no end,
that has no beginning, that has no life;
it just sits there alone and no one ever notices this road.
Do not travel the lonesome road of my heart.
Come with me, take my hand
I shall guide you with the beat of my heart,
with the light from mine eyes, I shall take you
and show you the world and all it's seven wonders.
You are beautiful and you do not need to walk
the lonesome road alone.

I see the pain in your heart,
I feel the tears that fall from your eyes
and drop into my hands,
come into my warm embrace
and I shall love you.
Cherish a moment so grand,
just come with me and we shall walk together
in united glory and sleep the night away,
but promise me one thing my love;
Do not walk the lonesome road of life.

Day Dream

A Day Dream

I wish there was you
The moment I wake up
Kissing my good morning sunrise
Asking how my night have been
I wished.

I wish there was you 
The moment I walk by
Holding my hand safe and steady 
Taking me to where I needed be
I wished.

I wish there was you
The moment I run astray and afraid
Embracing my fears gone totally 
Building my defenses tall unwary
I wished.

I wish there was you 
The moment I get sickly unhealthy
Nursing me physically, emotionally
Reassuring you won’t leave- until 
I get myself back normally
I wished.

I wish there was you
The moment I gave my sacred vow 
Promising with me a lifetime of together now
Unfolding my veil from a dream of somehow
I wished.

I wish there was you
The moment I close my eyes
Remind me everything was real before it was
And you were in time before I sleep.

I woke up. 
to a day dream, crying.

On the beauty of the river

On the beauty of the river

Oh, the beauty of that river!
It’s like I’ve never seen
Just looking from my chalet door
Oh, what a lovely scene
On this cool morn the silent river
Reflects the many hues
As the sun shines down on the Tingle threes
Creating wondrous views

No artist could have painted better
That river shines so bright
As sparling gems of wondrous power
Do give my eyes delight
And greens and blues, and misty hues
Shone out in mystic power
A magic glow within my heart
Does turn into a flower.

As little wrens of gentle blue
Do twitter in the grass
Two ducks sit down here by my feet
And as the moments pass
I thrill them with a simple tune
As that river flows on by
To touch my heart with a gentle tug
As soul, with joy does cry

The Ugliness Of Divorce


My parents taught me the Christian ways.
I was taught to obey what the Bible says.

I was proud of my parents!  I really was!
And loved them so much…  Just because!

They meant everything to me!  I was proud!
Until one day...  There appeared “a dark cloud.”

It was like a “darkness” hovered above.
Leaving their marriage empty of needed love!

Though they were together many years.
There were many cracks that soon appeared.

I say a once happy home soon destroyed.
Being with one another….  They no longer enjoyed!

How could this happen! I had wondered…
To see a happy marriage “totally plundered

As sin crept in...  And allowed to prevail.
Very soon this marriage simply failed.

May this be a warning for me and you…
That our commitment remains faithful and true!

If your marriage is heading toward separation…
Please seek God for a healing and restoration!

If your planning to have a divorce..
Jesus’ love can put it on the right course!

He can replace the brokenness and hurt within..
And can put your lives back together AGAIN!

We Are All In This Together

We all have a story to tell.
Ups and downs,
Together, we've been through it all;
God has led us through it all.
Trust Him;
It's all for a reason.
All your pains,
All your struggles,
All your hurts-
They're all for a reason.
God has a bigger plan,
One we cannot see.
Trust Him and pray.
Remember,
We are all in this together.
Together, we have been through it all.
Ups and downs,
We are family-
Brothers and sisters in Christ.
We are friends.
Most importantly,
We are family.
Let's love one another like God loves us.
Let's help each other out
And help each other up with loving hands.
We are His children.
We are His servants
Together on His mission
To love, save, and change the world
For the better.
We are all in this together.
Listen to His praises ring;
Let's praise Him together.
Listen to sister Fantasia sing,
"Sometimes you gotta lose to win again."

L O M L Always

The thought of her smiling gave me faith
From when we were little we bathe
My mother and her mother is best friends
They both took care of us and gifts they send
We pulled each others hair
And she was always quick to dare
When I smiled at her she knew it was no good
She learned to pull me up and she understood
I just wanted her attention and that she gave
She knew it in her heart love was my slave
From when we were a child with full of energy I had my way
She was the one who was my guide and she did not push me away
When I saw her cry one day and her eyes was so sad
I gave her a flower and I smiled at her and made her glad
When some one special leaves her heart
I sat by her and never wanted to depart
She is the love of my life always
She is the one who gave me my hope through out my days
So I gave her my heart and love from within
And I did not make it thin
I stood by her side since I was a child
I gave her my support when we were wild
She knew who I was and I let her go the distance
I did not hate her or give her resistance
My mother and her mother are great friends and their virtue will never end
Because of their love they both trusted us to live our ways to transcend
So my childhood friend was my best friend, and now my wife
She new it from the start that we part of each others life

Mother

My mother sweeping up the floor,
Or greeting neighbors at the door.
Stopping for a cup of tea,
With cookies and some milk for me.

She’d make the beds, do other chores
Before hanging the clothes outdoors.
My mother led a busy life
And still she was a happy wife.

The meals that from my mother came,
Would put all restaurants to shame.
She was the world to Dad and me.
She’s with me still in memory.

I see her shining chestnut hair
And tortoise comb to hold it there.
She kept it all in ordered check
Except for curls on back of neck.

She gazed at me with mother’s pride
Until the very day she died.
I know there’ll never be another
Who could love me as did Mother.

Mother’s always in my prayer.
I ask that she be happy there,
With floors to sweep or beds to make
Someone to love for love’s own sake.

Spring

A little bit confused was beautiful Spring, 
She had to choose for life a bridegroom. 
Who will give her a wedding ring? 
Three men wanted to be her happy and bloom. 

March, April and May vied with each other. 
About their great love they quietly talked. 
April was for Spring like a brother, 
With March she just often liked to walk. 

Timid March gave her beautiful primroses, 
Out of snowdrops he made a wreath, 
He didn’t want to know any losses, 
He promised her the whole world’s wealth. 

Delicate and sweet was April. 
He gave her a necklace of brilliant drops. 
The life with him could be stable, - he said, 
She’d be rich and would get good crops. 

A wonderful May pleaded Spring: 
You are my love! Take my wedding ring! 
Be quick, Spring! Be my wife! 
We’d be happy together the whole life. 

And Spring trusted the handsome May. 
Without any delay she sewed the white dress, 
For the veil she took the apples blossoms. 
That was her best and the happiest day. 

The whole world was whirling in the dance. 
May was getting married with Spring! 
The Earth was full of love and romance, 
Happiness to all this marriage would bring.

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.

My Nest

Love is my nest.
It holds me
where all the world I see.
It saves me
from the ground
which my soul will never meet.

Up in a forest tree
hunters scattering in threes
they'll never catch me
I have love.
I am perfectly happy.

relaxed I am
I do not stress
for there isn't life
without my nest.

who cares what's below?
I am above.

Together Again

A girl whom he'd forgotten
At his door, showed up the other day
The one he'd always wanted
Just knew not what to say

The boy she longed to hold
She caught his eyes once again
Of her love, to him, she never told
But this time, all her love, she will send

Once in a lifetime, and not one time more
Fate takes hold, luck is lent
From out of the blue, a miracle occurs
Hearts reunite, Together Again

She greets him with a smile
A sparkle in her eyes
For his love, she'd run for miles
To try this thing called love, just one time

Gazing at her beauty, he feels her in heart
Remembering those nights, with her, in his dreams
And how he felt at this whole love's start
Where they'd be one forever, to him, oh how it seemed

Well this girl's name was Katie, and his Steve
And oh how tears were shed, by them both, when they were forced to leave
But in the past that was, so now he holds her hand
Two angels together, forever they'll stand

Once in a lifetime, and not one time more
Fate takes hold, luck is lent
From out of the blue, a miracle occurs
Hearts reunite, Together Again

An old couple now, a lifetime of love
They've conquered all, risen together, above
Together, all the years, oh how they've spent
And to each other, all their love they have sent

Feeling each others hearts beating every morning
Through all the decades, all the happy years
Steve's heart though, one of these days, stopped without warning
And Katie's wrinkled face, moistened with tears

How could Katie live now, without her beloved by her side
Knowing that beside her, his heart slowly died?
She dreams every night now, just as he did before, of heaven
Where they'll be Together Again

Once in a lifetime, and not one time more
Fate takes hold, luck is lent
From out of the blue, a miracle occurs
Hearts reunite, Together Again

Every Second We're Away

Every second we're away,
We grow stronger everyday
Until that day will finally come
When we know it's okay
And we will rest in each other's arms
In peace from God above,
No longer missing one another
Because we're together;
Built forever in each other's love.

The Tiny Box Under The Tree

I could see the snow falling outside the window
As we cuddled on Christmas right near the tree
Drinking egg nog and watching our favorite shows on tv
Anxiously I couldn't help but wonder
What my sweetheart had wrapped up for me
He must have read my thoughts
Because suddenly he gave me a surprise gift
And immediately got on his knees

To see what my expression would be
Nervously I stood in shock
But couldn't wait to unwrap the gift
That was a very tiny box
To my amazement it immediately caught my eye
Sparkling and shining from the opened box
Stood a very large diamond ring
Just as beautiful as it could be

At that very same moment he then stood up
And said,  " Will you marry me?"
Without a doubt thrilled and excited
I immediately answered back with a yes
We then smiled and intimately embraced one another
Finally ending the night on Christmas was even more special
And one of my best Christmas holidays ever
Because I became newly engaged which was a gift like no other

My Love Intended

My love intended for the girl of my dreams,
she walks from side to side,
not knowing that I walk alone.

She is beautiful than any other thing in this simple world,
everything around her shakes and trembles
as she walks on by without a spare of a passing glance.

The wine is drunk
the last cigarette smoked,
the pain of heartache gone away.

It feels good to see her go my way,
to take the pain with her away from me,
as I sit in the wayward cafe on the river of ashes.

A beautiful girl she is mine,
but that course of life shall no surpass mine,
and my heart beats and takes me away
in hope of falling in love.

Irony of love and hate,
it is similar in many ways,
as I sit and think of her.

She angers me,
but when the vail of anger falls over my eyes,
the passion of love enters my mind.

Come now, take me away,
hold me in your beauty,
and love me with your gentle body.

Go into the gardens,
where the nightingales sing,
and sit at the patio's crossway.

Watch the artists paint pictures of the garden,
watch the writers write about the garden,
and watch us go and pick flowers in the garden.

The air smooth and wind breeze calms the nerves,
the pain of my sorrowed heart is soothed,
by her sweet intellegence and beauty.

Her eyes, orbs of blazing sunlight,
blind me with the beauty of her beauteous face,
her lips and skin smooth and pure.

She is glorious,
My love she is the dream girl,
who comes and takes my nightmares away from me.

As I sit on the park benches,
I light my last cigarette,
and reminicse on the days with my love.

I close my tired eyes only for a moment,
and the moment is gone,
my beauty is gone.

The tears are all gone,
the pain has gone,
the feelings of everlasting love are all gone.

Where did it all go?
Where did my beauty go?
Where did my love go?

All gone now, all gone now,
as I grow old,
the feeling of death takes me by surprise.

The park bench is cold,
the cigarette is burnt out,
I am longing for a drink.

I lay in a wayward cafe
drink a coffee and talk to myself
discussing a book of poetry.

Looking over to the right
I am blinded by beauty once again
this time this is no dream.

Alas, my dream girl came
that appeared in my sunny pleasure dome,
who has walked barefoot in the gardens of my mind.

She sat with me,
I looked at her
and we smiled together.

We held hands together,
and dreamed together,
forever and ever.

Love everlasting,
everything everlasting,
cigarettes smoked together.

A cloud over our heads
in the shape of a heart
my love.

Miss Ladybug

Wearing your red pock-a-dot dress
Miss Ladybug, you look divine,
it is beautiful today, the sun is out.

Go now, Miss Ladybug,
flutter your wings,
buzz away from me.

Go now, fly Miss Ladybug.
Point me in the direction of love,
see you flying North.

May I say, Miss Ladybug,
that you look divine,
and beautiful as ever.

I walk North,
I follow you Miss Ladybug,
point me to her.

You flutter over to a beautiul girl,
five foot, seven.
Nice pick Miss Ladybug.

I walk over to the girl,
She is beautiful,
long hair, jet black, flowing.

Miss Ladybug thank you,
now fly away,
I shall need you for another day.

Take me away now, baby
show me something new,
take me away from the few.

And Miss Ladybug,
there she went off into the sunset,
with her red pock-a-dot dress
flowing in the breeze, alone.

Adoption

	I wanted to be adopted again,
Guardianship wasn’t enough,
I wanted to bear your name with pride,
Have love that was tough.
	I needed to be called “Daughter” again,
For you to look at me with pride,
I needed you to smile at me with love in your eyes,
To call my name and say, “Stand by my side.”
	But then I realized I was already taken,
Not by you but by Someone up above,
I realize I had been spoken for all along,
Spoken for with love.
	“He destined us for adoption
As His children through Jesus Christ”,
It says that in Ephesians 1:5,
Adoption by God feels nice.
	He gives me all the love I want,
The things that I need,
He adopted us here on Earth,
He planted a seed.
	I’m glad I was taken,
Not by you but by God,
For being spoken for all along,
Spoken for with love.

A Dedication to my Darling Mystic

Dedicated to my darling Mystic Rose...


For my everlasting rose,
for my darling Mystic Rose,
Charished deep in my heart,
for generations to last lifetimes,
on this Beautiful gift,
we all call Mother Earth.

Oh now my dear
come now and do not fear,
I shall take you by your sweet and loving hand,
as we set out in a band,
of two lonely hearts
that both need to be loved.

At first when I came
to this desolate Wasteland;
I was a lonely heart
with poetry that was my art.
You were the first to come to me,
with a smile and a hug.
You read my work,
I won your heart
and you praised me,
looked at me in anew
and treated me diffrently than any other.

My darling Mystic,
Oh how you make me feel;
so grand, so new, so happy.
As I lay my head to rest
I reminisce on your loving words,
that spoke such truth to my soul.
As you praised me through my heights,
and weaped with me through my sorrow,
as I uplifted your soul with the arrangement of words
I wrote from deep down in my weak and weary soul;
You were there always to touch my heart
and cure me of sorrowed tears.

It is impossible to express my love for you,
but see me, to feel my love,
for you my darling Mystic
it tears me apart to not
see your face, to hear your voice,
only to read your loving words
comments on a poem
that was written on a page;
It tears me apart.

Oh, my sweet and everlasting rose,
Blooming in every season,
at every hour,
a beautiful poetess at her midst of an evening twilight
as the nightingales sing outside your window,
I come and show you love and compassion.

Let us go, you and I,
I take you by your hand
and we sail off,
two poets writing of beauty
both in ink upon a blank piece of paper.
To write of love,
My compassion for you
my beautiful rose,
my darlin Mystic.

We shall part seas,
bloom in gardens of beauty,
roses and violets grow tall
around us,
reminding us of our everlasting friendship.
Lilacs and tulups stray long away,
to show my love to a stranger,
but you are no stranger to me.

You are an everlasting rose,
which blooms evertime at the stroke of nine,
and there you stay,
growing in a large and beautiful garden,
that is located deep in my heart.

Now take me, my darling Mystic
your LoveSlayer,
and charish this beautiful write
Charish it at all times,
every hour of the days! 
In honour of your beauty and inspiration
I am a fool in love,
intoxicated with your beauty at heart.

Prolific, I guess that' me

Prolific, I guess that’s me

I read a poem by ilene Baur
Prolific, she called it
I saw myself right in those words
And it made me smile a bit
Then I asked myself this question
Why do I write so much?
Each time a subject comes along
My busy mind to touch….

Then I just grab a pencil
And a poem is written down
I guess it’s my addiction
I just hope that folk don’t frown
And say ‘Oh no! Not him again
Each time they see my stuff
I guess if I was in their shoes
I’d say “hey that’s enough!!!”

So bear with me good people
And If I cause you grief
By writing all these empty words
Then you may gain relief
By passing everything I write
Not reading it at all
And yet I hope this is not so
When you comment, it’s real cool.

This Is The Love

Stand up and shake;
Feel the rhythm in your heart.
Ignite those pants;
We get up and dance.
God on our mind,
Eternity in our souls;
Feel the chills of those bones.
It's the hope.
Open those closed doors:
Into Heaven we go,
Welcomed and forgiven.
Here is the love;
Let's dance!

Leave me with my dreams

.
Leave me with my dreams
Cause I’m a dreaming fellow
Leave me here a pondering
With mind all calm and mellow
Picturing a better world
Where evil is no more
Let me dream of the harmony
Of a world all free of war.

It might never happen
Sometimes it seems to me
That a tadpole has more chance
Of swimming in the deep blue sea
But let me dream about it
It makes my heart feel warm
Let me dream of a world at peace
And this it be the norm.

Leave me with my dreaming
Of peace and harmony
Where God will rest within each heart
And a perfect world will be
Where everywhere becomes a space
Of sweetest liberty.

Leave me with my dreams
Maybe they’ll seep into you
Then peace and harmony might reign
In everything you do
I guess that someone has to dream
For something to be born
So if more folk did get to dreaming
There might be a brand new dawn.

True Love

When you put your hand in mine

It feels as through we stopped time

When I look into your eyes

I know where your heart lies

Even when you say my name

That alone means everything

The gentle touch of your lips

Takes my breath away as through it was our first kiss

When you got down on your knee

I thought my heart might flee

As you said those words to me

My heart felt as if it was meant to be.....

The Canvas of Night


The Canvas of Night


Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,


enthralled by the wonder of the cosmos,
my dreams take to the heavens in effervescent flight,


I bathe in the beauty, soaked in sublime delight,
absorbed in moments of bliss, transfixed by the serene sight.




Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,


and my being is infused with feelings of hope,


for even in darkness  I find the sprinkled sugar of hope's light.




note: special thanks to one of my heroes, the late Dr. Carl Sagan, for making science accessible to younger me, many, many moons ago.

Gift Of Mortality

An earthly existence
A universe beyond my minds, comprehension
I die
I rise
Life lessons reviewed
Homeward bound
I am not lost, after all!
I am a willing participant
Serving, the Father, of all creation
His son combined, ‘producing life’ as we know it
Representing them, in everything I do
I am nothing, without Love!
My heart full of faith, loyal service I give
Learning how to unconditionally serve, as the Father unconditionally, loves me
Worshipping our Divine Creator’s existence
Choosing to live, moment to moment
Being as one with ‘Our Universal Father’
No physical permanency
My physicality, disappearing
My mortality existence, I let go of
Death temporary
My spirit alive!
Relief, Peace
‘I am only passing through!’
A unique, experience of mortality 
A gift, I am blessed to experience, to live!

Life

I do not long for yesterday no grief my soul can find
for everything is just in the end of our time
questions left unanswered can make you seek to find
but in the end it is our destiny that wins our mind

Life is a beautiful tragedy for goodness and glory are divine
how would we know how blessed we are if to hate we remain blind
it is only through those darkest days we truly learn to love our life
so as I lay my quill down finished with each dear line
I must instill in all love and honor will always remain firmly by your side




This is something I came to know in the last few weeks. Sometimes love has always been right beside you. It may be inside yourself. Grief makes us stronger and as they say time heals all wounds. One day you will wake happy and glad to love again. Stronger than before. It is not always easy to forgive those we love or love us, but take it from me it is worth it in the end. You will be so happy you did not break or turn to others. A new friend can not fix the problems in us only we can. When we see that we can be a friend and not just have them. I am proud to have been through hell and know I am finally free from my memories.

caressing your bare back,

Heart and Soul

~ Heart & Soul ~

It’s not just about that one person
You can’t imagine your life without
It’s so much more than that

It’s waking up each morning
Knowing you have a family who loves you
It’s a group of friends 
Who care about you 
Not just 
Some made up version of you

It’s that feeling you get when you help someone out
Or when a dream comes true

It can be happy or sad
It can lift you up or break you down
It can break your heart
Or it can heal you
Yet one thing is true

If you have felt it even once
You’ll never want to let it go

It has so many forms 
With so many different ways you can feel it
Even a day to celebrate it 

It is a feeling that 
Is hard to live without 
Those who have never felt it 
They are the ones I feel sorry for

LOVE
A four letter word 
That says so much
Means so much 
Has such an impact on so many lives

It’s so important 
In so many ways
A couple just starting out
Two people spending the rest of their lives together
A family
Friends
A lifelong dream
And so much more
A feeling
Called Love
I prefer to 
Call

Stuck In The Struggle

Sometimes I get stuck in the struggle
And I forget that this life is real,

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

POWERFUL HUG

POWER HUG

Oh! I am feeling down.. sad
I'm missing my mom and dad
Though, I am a grown-up lad (lass)
Can you offer me your hug?

My dear friend, my heart's been broken
Built - dreams; whispered - wishes, stolen
To wrong persons, I have fallen
Can you offer me your hug?

The weather is getting too cold
Though, I'm fully clothed never gone bold
Still, shivers rocking roll and roll
Can you offer me your  hug?

My whole day has been that good 
Happy and loved is everyone's mood
Hence, I searched and eat my favorite food
Can you offer me a hug?

Any emotions and situation you are in
Even if you are rich or without means
It is alright.. Do hug, hug is not a sin
Give it free. Heartfelt, full from within.

I can laugh all night
Until sunrise
That might sound childish

I can act foolish
But I deserve 
To be treated right

I’m proud of myself
For preserving my

But I’d rather
Use my childlike brains

I have a grand gift
Of uplifting
The distraught spirits 

I can be mature
But who cares...I’m

Best Thing I Ever Had

When I get to Louisiana, 
just a mile or more to go.
Yes, when I get to Louisiana, 
just a mile or more to go, 
Lord, you know i'll be alright
once I hit that station floor.

They say he's in New Orleans 
doing his best to survive.
They say he's in New Orleans

I'll be in New Orleans just
as it's turning five, 

That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
Lord knows when I see him it will
make my heart feel glad.

When we're pulling in the station, 
Lord I'll be headed for that door.
Yes, when we're pulling in the station 
I'll be headed for that door.
You know I just can't wait until 
I hit that station floor.

That man was the best thing-

The Fire

Like all things that appear innocent, fire is in the pit of all.
Like a the clear sky before the rain fall, Like a rainbow after the storm
Our love was pure but the fire raged inside. 
Was it just lust or were we  in love
no one could of save both of us, Indestructible is what we thought we were but our weaknesses got the best. As we burned and burned with out the might to stop the  death that was awaiting us. 
What we thought to be happy was actually the manic of our affair. The memories will remain until we have the strength to detain, detain ourselves from each other, We may not have the strength to destroy what made us but we can stop this torture that we create
… Glass shatters just as our hearts when we walked away, when we walked away from all we thought was Important all we fought for. The fight was long and hard but even we couldn't save each other it was destine we were bound to be destroyed 
Like a fire when everything burns to the ground,When all is thought to be lost
we have to find hope without the weight of our destruction haunting us 
like a wild fire out control that exactly how we were 
it was our fate for our candle to burn out 
to burn the memories that might remain to burn all that attaches us to one another  like a fire we had to move on and still have hope that one day even with out each other we would be happy just maybe we could happy without each other one day, and just like a fire we were no more we had to burn before we created death and let others mourn..

BEAUTIFUL AURA

Heavy reading glasses
Thick dark eye lashes
Braced lined white teeth
Staring quietly on a seat

Easy humor your simple style
Yet, it touch me for long time
Sharp witty conversations
Invited me with no hesitations

Chin high - up so I could see
A tall man in wearing a tee
He is addicted to coffee and tea
Busy always with papers and fees

Yet, underneath a beautiful aura
A man who loves to jam in Bora
Respectable and gentle to his moves
Adoringly, how he manage to groove

We'll be

We'll be forever building gold mines
from scrap metal and taking
recycled energy to cosmic levels
through third eye

We'll go un-noticed until the heavens turn 
or if our chakras are not aligned 
constantly diverting negative thoughts 
through our meditative lights

We'll build a sandcastle from determination
and live life on the edge,
fulfilling divine order and witnessing creation,
living in the now and staying ahead

We'll tip the earth off it's axis
and trick subconscious mind states into submission
You can catch us in the wind transcending counter reactions
Bi-passing illusions of circumstances 

We'll have an abundance of the maximum
Enough love energy for all who attract our path
We'll be the ones in the light
asking for nothing in return but peace
at last

A Night with You

O, how I have dream't this night would come.
Me and you, and you and I together;
in the same room,
on the same night.
The night is young, and so are we.
Tell me all your dark secrects,
as I paint you a picture.
Kiss me on the cheek,
Bite me on the lip,
Give me a little slap,
Just to let me know, you're still here.

Let's watch a movie,
in the dark, when it's night.
Cuddle up together, under the virgin, white sheets and thick, warm blankets,
as we kiss each other.
Wet, sloppy and romantic kisses back and forth.
Love me, for I love you;
Kiss me, for I kiss you;
Hug me, for I hug you;
Hold me tight and never let go.
Pray with me that this night together shall never pass.

Come into my arms, and let us sleep awhile.
Dream of loving one another in a flowery meadow, over the hillsides of lovely skies.
Come let us go for a midnight walk.
Along follow over yonder, with the freaks, who sit on park benches,
sleeping their hangovers away.

Come babe, sit in this grassy field with me.
Let us count the stars in the moonlit, night sky.
I steal a kiss from you,
as the shooting stars blaze rapidly across, the purple night sky.
Quick my dear, make a wish!

I do not wish, for my wish has already come true,
and that is to be with you.
To Love you, and hold you,
and sing you to sleep, while you sleep off the night's adventures,
in my comforting arms.

Burn Away

BURN AWAY

We have all lost our way
To see starlight gazers
And men with broken hearts,
Seeking love in all of the wrong places;
Vacant lots, where women all looking for something,
But not quite knowing what they look for.
We have all lost our way.

The only hope of humanity
Is the shining sun
That breaks through the blinds of my window,
And the faint memory of me and her
Lying on our backs in a grassy meadow,
Holding hands
Looked up and counted stars.

Cities burn away,
Sky, stars, moon, sun all burn away;
The grassy meadow
Where we once lay, all burns away
Everything burns away,
Memory and desire and love all burn away
With the snap of a finger, and a new man
In her own life,
And I burn away.

A picture of her hung high and praised,
A picture of me, in a dark box
That collects dust, in some lonesome
And dusty, cobweb infested attic.
And I burn away with a new day.
I burn away.

A nightmare that I can’t awake from,
It is endless and repeats
When thoughts of her are all over my mind,
I cannot take such nightmarish reality
Too see her and smile,
And she walks away without a trace
Of ever returning.
And I cry,
And I burn away,
The tears wash the fire away,
And turn me to ash,
The wind picks me up and takes me away.

And for one peaceful moment,
I do not cry,
I do not burn away.
For a moment I am happy
And I smile,
And go away for a while
And let them all sleep in peace.

A Song

Songs which will never be sung,
of sadness, despair and nightmarish dreams,
Songs which will never be heard,
of lost loves, pain, and gloomy days,

Take a journey of dreams with me,
So i can sing of unfathomable love,
For this song i have written with cupid's aid,
One with a melody of love and trust,
In this magical night, our music pushes all negativity aside,

Back to the realm of creativity i shall travel,
To write more songs to see your smile,
Though my destination lies over a thousand miles,
To sing you a new song each night,
it'll be indeed worthwhile.

He Stops my Heart

He walked into my life and into my heart and marked his territory
And I had no options, no choice but just to accept
That somewhere out there
Under my nose existed someone
Who would care enough
To make me smile
Laugh my heart into a knot and soothe my soul
Put me to sleep by simply saying the word “sleep”
Sweep me off my feet literally
Have me gasping in amazement
Pleasant surprises
He wasn’t joking
Trips at night, back and forth and back again
I reflect and it moves me to tears
He stops my heart
He puts the smile on my face
When I have really bad days
When I’m really upset and the world is about to turn upside down
His voice, his presence, his anything and everything makes it all okay
Little did I know that my idle talk of “lets run off together” when I was stressed some years ago would mean oohs and aahs and wows and a painted smile across my face.

To myself

Is it a must to be in a couple?
I find life pleasurable as a single
It gives me time to write
Time to search for my height

If it is such a must to be in a couple
Why is is that around me, I see only pain
Everything becomes always disagreeable
Love, after some time, does become a disdain!

Why, I have had my share of love
Once, when I was yet a joyful dove
Chirping madly away, laughing the day away
But love showed me its evil side on that day

Since then, I chose to live only as a single
But it seems that being single means being weird
So, should I succumb and be no more abominable?
Should I follow the route as does most of the herd?

My Love

my love...

my love blossoms amidst the thunder

across the oceans and the beyond the seas

my love reaches out and touches

the moments of bliss as the loneliness flees

my love is simple
with profound feelings of yearning desire

my love rages within
the furnace of this aching heart's unquenchable fire

my love basks in the warmth of the knowledge

that in the spring it takes root and it will flower

my love breathes in the light fragrance

of her hair after her warm and delicate shower

my love remembers drowning in her eyes

of those ethereal moments frozen forever more

my love recalls the fleeting ticking of the clock

each minute apart stabbing at my very core

my love she knows I need her so

for she needs me just as much

my love she sprinkles light flourishes of her sensual touch

as my love for her continues to ceaselessly grow

my love reaches down into the crevasses of my of being

my love for her is held onto deep inside

for in the coming of the cold ache of seperation

my love settles between the folds of her heart, for 'tis there that my love for will reside

my love like an eternal dream caresses me in wakefulness and in sleep

and that is the feeling that I shall cherish

a feeling of love that has settled in me 

a feeling so pure and a feeling so very deep...

FLY HIGH

(Please note: this poem is a continuation after ‘last season’.)

Fly High

Left you behind to your own world
Where you said you will be happy - 
The only thing that I couldn’t ceded…
The love that I felt for you could not be regretted. 

I left alone once again with memories I cherished 
I smiled with drops of water from my eyes.
Days seemed to me as years,
And time gave up my tears.

You smiled back once again with a new life…
And I kept my promise, I didn’t look back;
You let me go where I settled no-where…
I lost myself leaving behind allegiance desire. 

I stand-alone myself without fear
A dire arouse and I took it as a dare.
I tied up myself and reveled with new aspire…
Yes! I left your memories, and I left it by. 

I heard your voice once again, yet I didn’t fumbled,
Your tears then proved me -
Yes! I can live without you, with no tears,
Yes! I’m living without you, with no fears.

I smiled once again and I started to live afresh
Where I left you behind to your own world
Where you said you will be happy - 
The only thing that I couldn’t ceded,
The love that I felt for you could not be regretted –
Yes! You were my love and you are
But I can live without you, with memories faded.

Myself and I

Something in my brain
Has driven me so insane
That I thought, without you in my life
Why keep the will to fight
Or stand up for anything at all?
I had slipped fallen
Fallen on the ground,
So quietly, it did not make a sound.
You could hear me though
Whispering in the silence of my hot mess
While he watched me get undressed,
I was in distress
Then he slipped off my dress,
And lied and told me he loved me again
And I believed him until the end,
But I am stronger now, 
No one to lean on but myself,
So I let the sun beat down upon me
Suddenly, I start to feel  happy
I start to feel free
This must be what it feels like to be me,
I am so happy to finally be set free
I would never want to be anyone else but me;

BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE

Lets hike through broken lanes, till life make sense
Lets fence fear, give that insane pain a blockage
Till life make sense

Lets page our broken pieces of thoughts and hope
Let climb valleys and hills of sin
Till life make sense

Hold me tight, lets crash those ends that break us to ashes

Walk with me, parade the sour cloudy waves
Till life make sense

Lets throw stones to talks untill they sink
Lets dance till our sweat forms a sea
Till life make sense

Together we can drift, and swim through the sharks
Wrap you in my skin, hold till we start to float
We'll ride though the smoke
Untill life make sense

Lets float till we describe a dream
Freedom can only mean you and me

The world fires at you, roast you bad within
Paint you in black , till you drown in black wine
You dance and wine in pain, closes your heart, embracing the devils wheels within
You steam , role yourself as own enemy, then throw yourself in the bin
You watch as my heart scatter and shrink within
Say that am too good for sting
But I won't just let you fade, you're my beautiful mistake
I'l dive on your skin
Tilt pain, sun-kiss your soul, breath away drama and doubt
Till we fly in flashes

I 'll wear your heart, breaks locks, till love saves us

We'll run the light till we find the truth
I'll breath you, humour you till we find us

I'll stir chances on you , dance with hues
Till I seclude you completely from blues

Babe you're the force behind these traits
You track my mysteries and remind me what life is supposed to be
You're the pioneer of my dreams, the slasher of my big pride

You patron my moods, you're the twin of my smile


Your love is a massive crowd that cheer my heart
Your hand is the sun that catches and warms my soul

You paint all corrodes that threatens my future
You cement my dreams, the stars seems so near

You dish away nonsense, critics are cage as slaves

You're my ultimate king
You're my platinum win

You make me mingle with my spirits
Tatter dark till there's a healing

Meeting you was a mistake
Loving you is a cheeful beautiful mistake

The fading fire

The fading fire

The fire has gone where it must go
I've lost ferocious, sensual glow
Yet with it comes a love so strong
So gently sweet within it's song

With winters sweet maturity
The love that always lives in me
Becomes a lovely loyal force
Been tempered by such sad remorse.

Those days are gone when the body sang
And just one thing in mind did reign
It's gone from heat, to cosy warm
Warm, summers breeze, no more a storm.

When looking back, where would I be
If I had another chance at me
I'd choose to be here in the warm
Where love is gentle, not a storm.

When I Look At You

When I look at you,
I remember our 
First kiss, out first hug,
The first time you looked at me.
When I look at you my heart
Beats a million miles an hour,
When you look at me
My heart races uncontrollably,
And it skips beats.
When I look at you,
My heart finds it's home.
You know they said,
"Home is where the heart is."
I LOVE YOU BABY!!
Always~N~Forever,

Happiness

Today i found Happiness such a wonderful Joy,
the man of my life treats me like a man and not a boy,
he is heaven in my eyes a wonderful sight,
love,love,love such a delight,
and when i am scared or feeling down,
he comes and saves me,
he takes away my frown,
i can be who i am, 
its finally nice,
to met the man of my dreams 
i don't have to think twice,
then that day came when i walked down that aisle,
tears in my eyes the brightest smile,
i met my best friend what can i say, 
being married has made me the happiest everyday.

Happy New Year

Hoping the love we have will be forever true
Another dream comes alive, for me and for you
Positive attitudes are prevalent between us
People see us and sure wonder how we are thus
You know our love comes year after year with passion

Never did they realize we have the powerful mission
Every day of the year our love boils with a special lust
Whispers of desire comes at our command, we adjust

Young we were at the beginning of each loving year
Endearing our hearts beat as one, both hearts are dear
All these qualities are glowing at the start of now
Real love in the New Year, a love so strong is my vow

Flaming Moon

Moon stops a while, glides motionless, 
twinkling stars hide and seek, in silent glee, 
soft, sweet summer breeze, gently rustles, 
fragrance of lavender, wafts in the innocent air, 
black night dances along, unfolds tenderly, 

Listening to the silent song of the night, 
we lay together on the grass, delightfully, 
her head nestling on my arm, hands clasping my shirt tightly, 
she moves a bit, tenderly, enraptured in some beautiful dream, 
sweet summer breeze flows along, caressing tenderly.

She stirs a bit, awakens slowly, 
smiling shyly, beautiful doe eyes look into mine, 
our hands touch, silky skin in radiant glow, 
we turn, lips touching, slowly, delicately, 
she sighs, comes closer, snuggling in once again, 
beautiful black night dances along, lingering tenderly.

The Garden

The night air is cool and collective,
Running through my hair and face.
Even when I’m with people, I feel alone
In this cold blooded space.

It’s like walking through a garden
Of all your favorite foods,
But none of which can substantiate
For that one so special mood…

That mood, 
that beautiful frame of mind.  
I only go there with you,
And only you can make it unwind.

I discovered a passion unlike any other
And in my finding I opened a world,
A world I did not know existed.
I’m on cloud nine every time I think of you,
Just the thought of you brings joy to my heart.

This garden holds many beautiful things
Many delightful pleasures,
Many cold nights,
Warm nights,
Difficult frights,
Ecstatic times and unsystematic times!

But they mean nothing to me,
While I’m alone…

Walk with me through this garden.

Dead On My Own, Alive In Him

Faith is not failing me,
I am failing Him.
Why do I refuse to accept His grace?
Why would I rather live my life on my own
When He is extending a helping a hand?
I am depressed,
Dead on my own,
But I am alive in Him!
I give my life to Him for real;
I give Him my all,
And now I'm alive
Because He gives me life!

Forever

When I'm with you
I slip away
Dream all day in black and grey

Hands held tight 
No worries or fights
Cuddle so close
All threw the night

When I'm with you
I glo so bright
Not a single tear 
or sigh in sight

I want you forever
Would that be alright?

Together forever
No end in sight.

Tender warm winter kisses

Tender warm winter kisses
evoke the warmth of summer in my heart
and in place of snow
flowers flourish and grow
nourished with tender care
that we both share.

Pure white doves
fly through a clear blue sky
butterflies dance
and rainbows materialise
I see the most wondrous
story within her eyes.

True love is the greatest victory
a gentle flowing stream
a never ending dream.

MUTLU SON YOKTUR by Teoman

MUTLU SON YOKTUR by Teoman
Song Lyrics

Çok uzaktan geldiysen,
Otur, soluklan, dedi.
Kurakliktan geçtiysen,
Dikenli yollardan,
Karanliktan,
Gölgeden,
Issizdan
Yüzünü yalayan soguktan,
Dogum,
Aci,
Dogrularim, korkularim.

Sorulunca yaniti
Içimizde olan,
Kanimi donduran, isitan,
Durduran
Bir kalemsen,
Bir bos kagit
Mutlu ask varsa da,
Mutlu son yoktur.

Çocuklugun anilari 
Sirtinda agir örtü,
Üsütendir aslinda
Kis gecelerini
Süre degil anlattigim,
Her seyin sonu

Mutlu ask varsa da, 
Mutlu son yoktur.

ENGLISH Translation:

If you came from very far away
sit, take a breather (rest)
he/she said
if you passed through drought 
through the prickly paths
through the darkness
through the shadows
through desolation 
through the cold licking your face, birth
pain, my trues, my fears
while being asked, (if you are a pencil and blank paper)
whose answer is inside us
which freezes my blood
which warms and stops it 
If you are a pencil
a blank paper
although there is a happy love  
there is no happy ending.

Childhood memories
a heavy cloth covering on your back
which in reality makes them (winter nights) feel cold
the winter nights
it is not a period that I recounted
it is the end of everything
although there is a happy love 
there is no happy ending...

HAPPY DAYS

I pointed the dagger at my heart but you pushed it through
I painted a scarlet circle round my heart and you ripped it out
I shed a single tear for you, a cliche but oh so true
Now I'm heartless and happy days are here again
 
Music be the food of love and I have had my excess of it
Drunk so much, the appetite has sickened and is dead
Love is a poison and it flows through my veins
I wither and I fade away yes happy days are here again
 
Where once there was life the ashes float away
My heart is breaking and my breath is stolen away
Through the haze I wish you well, Love conquers all
I'm an empty shell... Happy days are here to stay.
 
                                                              DiDi    ;o)

HAPPY MARRIAGE

I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR FIFTY YEARS,
BUT IT SEEMS I JUST MARRIED LAST YEAR.
FIFTY YEARS MIGHT SEEM LIKE A LONG TIME.
BUT SUMMER NEVER SEEM TO LAST A LONG TIME.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT BRINGS SO MUCH HAPPINESS IN MARRIAGE.
AS THE THINGS YOU DENY YOURSELF FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR MARRIAGE.

NEVER EXPECT YOUR MARRIAGE TO BE ALL ABOUT LOVE.
FOR MANY A MARRIAGE HAVE CRASHED BECAUSE OF THE OTHER LOVER.
A PESKY BUTTERFLY MAY PERCH ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL ROSE.
EVEN THOUGH THE GARDEN IS FULL OF OTHER LONELY ROSES.
THERE ARE MANY THINGS YOU CANNOT CONTROL IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
BUT TRUST IN GOD CAN DO WONDERS FOR YOUR MARRIAGE.


THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A HAPPY MARRIAGE.
BUT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE HAPPY IN THEIR MARRIAGE.
HAPPINESS HAVE NEVER WON ANY WAR.
IT IS SWEAT AND BLOOD THAT WINS WAR.
THEREFORE  START EVERY DAY WITH A PRAYER TO GOD.
FOR YOU CAN NEVER WIN ANY WAR WITHOUT GOD.

I Cried Today

I Cried Today

I am thirteen today
You would think I would be happy
Yet it is hard to even crack a smile
With everyone wishing me a Happy Birthday
To me it’s not that happy
As today strange voices carrying on inside me
They say I don’t deserve to live 
They say I should die
I am thirteen and 

I Cried Today

My sweet sixteen isn’t so sweet
I just want to hide
Go back to sleep 
Or simply disappear
What is a girl to do? 
When she feels so sad, lonely and depressed
I don’t even have anyone to turn to
I am sixteen and 

I Cried Today

Today I am nineteen 
It is my graduation day
And while I am smiling on the outside 
I feel like I am crumbling on the inside
Those voices don’t give 
Never a break 
No rest for the wicked they say
I am nineteen and 

Today I Cried

I am twenty-one 
No drinking for me 
I am in a hospital as my first sip was almost my last
Who knew I could be so allergic
I am twenty-one
In a hospital and 

I Cried Today

I am twenty-five 
I thought I was in love 
Until I walked in on my fiancé 
In bed with my best friend
My heart feels so cold
I am so alone 
As my world has just turned upside down 
I am twenty-five and 

I Cried Today

I am thirty
I am working hard
To get back my life 
Take control of my future 
And actually see the possibilities of a tomorrow
It is a lot of work 
With a hard road ahead
I am Thirty 

I Never Cried Today

I am thirty-four
In a few short months I will be thirty-five 
I am not alone 
I realize I never was
Surrounded by people I love
People who love me
Married to the love of my life
My dreams are coming true
I feel so happy 
I am almost thirty-five and 

I Smiled Today

Mousey

I love my Mousey,
She lives in a field in BrushCreek, Tennessee,
Walking with her her of cattle,
As happy as she will ever be.

Without this there would be only she,
And i could make her as happy as me,

I miss her immensly, for thee i wish well,
For everyday i wish she wont sell, 
And I could show her in the Dekalb County Fair,
I would sell never an ounce of her.
Hehe not even one of her little white hairs.

Even when all the way over there,
Mine she is for no one but me to share, if I do so happen to dare.

Cute as a button,
A button her nose may well be,
Where I first touched her sweet little body,
Not once but twice sweetly,
For wherever she goes I could spot her, along with her sister and mother.

Many a mile away, for she is not at all,
Not at all what you would say a little grayish thing.

But a heifer who grows daily,
Only to shove the motherly tears away.
In my eyes though, she will always be, forever and always, my baby girl, my sweetie,
my beautiful girl, my Mousey

Love at seventy

For my beautiful wife, Vera Rosina, happy seventieth

I write this love song for my wife
She’s seventy today
And though the years have passed on by
That girls she looks okay
She has that kind of beauty
That age could never fade
She’s a special kind of angel
Who was in Heaven made.

My Vera Rose has everything
A girl could ever need
And as the years go passing by
That girls she still does feed
That sense of pride so strong in me
I always marvel at her
She’s a ‘one off’ girl for every season
My heart she still does stir.

One never knows what love is
{Not the purest kind of love
The one that bonds two folk together
And is blessed by God above}
Until they have grown old together
Oh, I know this for sure
Cause as each moment passes by
I love my lady more.

The Monster you become

Yes, I am undoubtedly certain
There’s no need to hide on curtain
 
I am glad to say I finally moved on
And a smile on my face is drawn
 
Being happy right now isn’t hard
Coz feelings for you is totally discard
 
As I now start having my new life
All the great things is exceedingly rife
 
I got all the chance to explore
Things I never done with you before
 
All the things that happen in the past
Seemed like a movie and we’re the cast
 
A movie that don’t have a happy endings
Words and actions resort to hurt feelings
 
But as I face the sun’s bright smile
Bliss I’m having, surely isn’t for a while
 
I know this new beginning will continue
And I will have someone better than you
 
My eyes are tired of shedding a tear
Too exhausted of treating you so dear
 
So here I am now with a brave heart
Can stand and live alone as we depart
 
But this cheerful time of mine change
You become unexpectedly strange
 
I don’t know the right term to use
Your actions made me extremely confuse
 
I never thought that you’ll resort to this
Didn’t presume you’ll be doing things out of piss
 
All my hardship to get better again
Seemed to disappear right there and then
 
 
 
 
You start pissing me to the core
And in my system it leaves a painful sore
 
Once again, tears lead to bursting
I really hate that this is still happening
 
You feed my friends with such impression
Making them think I’m the worst person
 
You spread enormous lie
Lies I didn’t imagine my friends would buy
 
So miserable, that’s what you’ve caused me
That’s how monstrous you could be
 
How I wish I never knew you then
Maybe my life now would be heaven
 
I can’t think of a thing to do
You just don’t know what I’m going through
 
Monster – that’s the right term for you
For the hurting and untrue words you threw
 
Having you in my past is a disappointment
For I don’t deserve this kind of treatment
 
I know I can’t be that perfect girl you want
But you still remain annoyingly nonchalant
 
I can’t change the kind of monster you are now
But hurting me? A thing I can’t allow
 
I’ll be defending myself coz I’m right
You don’t have the chance of holding me tight
 
I won’t be that cry baby anymore
I swear I won’t let any words of you be ignore
 
I won’t let myself be defeated by you
A monster – whom I once told “ I love you”

Garden Of Second Chances

There's a deepening feeling growing so strong
in this garden of love and it's taken so long.

The traces of something that never quite took
have grown pale and languid in this garden nook.

Love that drew disdain has withered and perished
and in it's place lies a thing to be cherished.

He rescued my heart in the nick of time
matching each rhythm with passionate rhyme.

Now love is what nurtures my soul and my mind;
what once was so painful is joyful and kind.

My garden is blooming and thriving you see;
since he and I became a we.

A DATE FOR TWO

A candle light formal dinner
Some prefers like that
but as for me
I want it up in a rooftop
Or simply in the garden
A picnic in the rooftop,
Where we can see the skies
Under the moonlit and stars
I wish the house near a beach
So we could see seagulls free
If in the garden..
A flower tuck side in my ear
I wish there are lots of flowerbuds
Half and fully blossomed
So their natural fragrance gloom
Butterflies that will fly 
Hope there's a tree we can lean
Or to each other's arms we can lean
Being next to each other
Holding and squeezing each other's hands
Sometimes even a half hug 
Or him or me lying on one's lap
Putting a grape or chip to one's lip
Caressing one's face
Familiarizing with each curve
Lots or small talking or no talk
Appreciating the essence of togetherness

Teenage Love 6: The Engagement and The Marriage

Both of the young lovebirds who have been dating since middle school and high school will
have finally made it to the altar, and after a long-term engagement. Both lovebirds are
very excited about getting married. First, these two former teenage lovebirds will have
gotten engaged after a guy, who used to be a teen boy asked a woman, who was a teen girl,
to have married him. And before these two make it to the alter, then both young lovebirds
will have to make it throughout the engagement without ever cheating on each other and
stuff. It seems that a young man and a young woman have dreamed that they'd make it to the
wedding of their awesome dreams, which is now called, "the final frontier;" a famous quote
from "Star Trek." It also seems that once these two lovebirds have tied the knot after
saying the words, "I do," there's no turning back. There's also no way out of the
marriage, unless it ends in a divorce. This fairy tale story now has a happy romantic
ending for this loving couple who met in elementary school, middle school, and/or high
school, and pretty soon, there's going to be a happy ending for all would-be young
lovebirds, too. Everybody's talking about getting married since the day they started going
to school, especially what their dream weddings will have looked like. I find this type of
love very interesting. On top of that and as for this loving married couple who were once
teenagers when they fell in love with each other, they're going to tell each other three
words: "I love you." It also looks like that day in and day out, week after week, and
every day for the rest of their lives, they're going to stand by each other until the day
they pass on. It's just like the saying goes, "love conquers all," which means that all
marital relationships will never be broken. And if this type of love keeps growing and
growing and this ends up in marriage in the near future, these two love birds (a man and a
woman), their friends, and their family members will be ready for it. they'll all be ready
for the future of all lovebirds.

Difficult Trials -Part 2-

Turn the wheel
*******he sea...
Push aside the misery...
The abominable agony...
Endure this hardship...with me
Fight off the tears and let us roam to sea
Don't make it hard for me
To determine the waters

We are the same kind
If you can be so KIND, let me show you your destiny -
To dwell with me in tranquility  

We will try to share our responsibilities...
Take turns and share our possibilities...

How have you been?
Sorry we have shut our ears
To your deafening cries
I'm turning the wheel for you
You're losing energy...be still - why are you so blue?

I'll shut out the feeling of anguish

You'll get what you wish

We will start anew
We will start on a fresh start
We will fulfill our dreams and make them come true
We'll brew away the sadness
I'm determined to eliminate
The distress... swallowing us like a tidal wave...
Behave, you wild childlike waters!! Behave!

Don't worry - we'll get rid of
The limited happiness
And make our heart pump with merriness
Don't be a magnet of depression stress

You'll experience a wonderful opportunity 
So you may feel  at one with
Our world full of possibilities
And eliminate those cruel, wretched words
That tore apart our responsibilities...
Our activities... our reveries... our possibilities...
That brought us back together

We'll be hiking
These somewhat difficult hardships together

Surreal Love

I pray to God that it will be a brighter day; 
I want his warmth to clothe me day after day 
Someday, the sun will erase all of my doubts
 and push away the clouds…
I want to be a positive schoolboy – but the clouds 
Cover me like mesmerizing, despondent shrouds  
I want to be a positive youngster – I need to stay
 True to my unaccomplished goals everyday

Lord, I know life has its ups and downs – but, I must keep a steady pace…
I want to develop a stable mentality with no trace of pity 
Lord, I know life gets problematic in the long run – I FEAR I might fall on my face
I just want to be content – I want my dreams to become a reality 

I'll be loving you forever… 
for you’re the last thing on my mind before I go to sleep at night
I’ll take a moment just to ponder… 
About you and our time together – thinking about you restores hope, joy and might

our love is wholesome and so much more…
our love will grow on forevermore…
our love is real and it’s a great deal…
our love is beyond measure and it’s totally real…
Our Love is oh so surreal 
You melt my anguish away…
Our love can heal a broken heart
You cherish me in the month of May 
You blow away winter’s dismay

I pray to God for a more optimistic mindset…
Hopefully it doesn’t result in forfeits  
 Push away the gray…and laminate it with a striking sunset, 
I’m drowning in his inclement, rainy regrets

I’ll make sure to embrace competition…
for you're my reason I run the extra mile, winning honor and applauds
I’ll take a moment to pursue my ambition...
Of being with you always and forever – I fear I might lose all of my odds 
With you…your heart isn’t pumping with vile frauds 
Every single second spent with you…
Makes my spirit soar anew...
I never experienced such surreal love
Our love flourishes rapidly from up above 

I’m sick with a love flu *cough* *cough*

Reflections Of You

When walking a path that you wish to take
A memory of love that never was a mistake
Holding hands with the most of caring person
Gave a virtue of different emotions and lesson
Now you share and grow to care for another
And you have created a family with no other
It shows through generations that you have virtue 
Of whom you shared your love and faith in is true
The image of both of you comes to make a new
A new creation of a reflection of you

Free falling

On the brink of a

moment, teetering

before I fall. Taking

in the still view, the

peaceful breaths from

the mountain peak. I

tweak my feathers and

take the plunge, no longer

held back having let go

of my grudge. Its a free-fall

with a breath filled with love

Well, there's freedom in Jesus!
And that's all we need!

We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times

We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times

Don’t be sad about my parting
Don’t feel like you never said goodbye
For you and I both know deep in our hearts
That We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times
And shared so much love and joy every day
 
Be happy that I am now at peace
Be joyful that I have lived a wonderful life
Be happy that we have shared so much together
 
And remember I am always with you in a thought and a sigh
Every day when you see the beauty in nature think of me
Every day when you see the colorful flowers think of me
Every day when you see a frisky animal prancing around think of me
Every day when you look into the eyes of someone you love think of me
 
And know beyond a doubt that I am with you in everything you do
And know beyond a doubt that I am with you in everything you say
And know beyond a doubt that I am with you in every quiet moment of your life
 
Don’t be sad about my parting
Don’t feel like you never said goodbye
For you and I both know deep in our hearts
That We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times
And shared so much love and joy every day

Feel The Love

Diving deep, into the void, within
Washing, cleansing, myself clean
Trusting without expectation
Letting go of, what I am familiar with
Allowing the divine, infinite spirit to guide me
Teaching me how to live
Growing inside my heart and mind
Larger than my mind’s ego
As I consciously shed light, upon my self created burdens
Lighting up, my made up fears, my mind has believed, all these years
All the mistakes I have made, now become my greatest blessings
Showing me how to love, without attachment
Discovering, who I truly am

Tahlia Rose, the fairy

Dedicated to my beautiful Granddaughter Tahlia Rose.



Tahlia Rose, The Fairy

Once upon a time in a world of fairies
No hatred in this land was ever seen
And all around were birds of many colours
And everything was peaceful and serene
Oh, the flowers in this place, you should have seen them
Or smelled their perfume oh, so very sweet 
For the God that lived up there in heaven
Had made each flower perfect and complete.

There lived within this land a lovely fairy
She lived within the rarest, wondrous Rose
And all around because of her great beauty
The whole of life it seemed to have that glow.
The animals of the land all came to see her
And the birds each time she passed would sing with joy
Yet Tahlia Rose {The name her folk did give her}
She yearned one day to find an elfin boy.

For she believed so deeply that her soul mate
Was there; she had to wait and let him come
Then one day this Elfin lad named fireball
He saw our Rose and she his mind did stun.
He danced his way to her as Elvin’s will do
And then she knew her soul mate, he was here
They danced together in the misty moonlight
That they did love each other was quite clear.

Well folk for miles around did come to see them
Between them they had beauty unsurpassed
None had ever seen love of such power
Betwixt this two the reservoir was vast.
And so the lovely pair they did get married
And everybody danced in wondrous bliss
You should have seen these little people dancing
It was a sight I’m glad I never missed.

Love Endures

Love floats by,


reaching,
tantalising,
meandering,


tip-toeing past pain,


leaping through walls,
weakening the barricades,


of the most private heart.



Love settles in,


trusting,
searching,
dissolving,


quietly beyond anguish,


erasing the desolation,
soothing a battered spirit,
enveloping the shivering soul.



Love stays, it is true,


love endures, as do you

EYE Don't See -Part 3-

My eyes
Witness your departure
My eyes
Are dripping with hopelessness…
My eyes start to blur…
Melancholy put me under pressure…
Is there a cure to my disease? 

You don’t see
The shards of hope that once brought us back together
Just let me search for safety
I’m strong enough to realize that I’m no longer
The weakest prey out there…

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me whimpering like a distraught puppy left on the train tracks?

I’m close to my demise…save me and take me home

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

Will this cheerful moment help us get along with each other?

Because of you…I feel the need to run 
I keep an eye on you – I worry that you’ll hurt yourself again
Because of you…My freedom is nearly gone
I don’t wanna be caught off guard again
Because of you…EYE can’t picture a solution for our vexing dilemma 
Because of you…eye can’t focus on my long-term goal 

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you sense that I’m giving in to failure? 
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…I can’t endure 
The hardships that you place upon me…
Could you boost up my confidence to overcome 
My atrocious anxiety? 

I’m just waiting for some sun
To keep me in good hands…
To strengthen me with perseverance …
I’m just waiting until His son
Leads the world outtah Egypt and reveals to us…
His radiance…His dazzling Kingdom – 
Vibrant with glee

Your undying sympathy dawns upon us
I’m overflowing with indescribable joy  
You’re a candle in the night…
We meet eye to eye…
What a sight…what a precious sight

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...

You and I



You and I.


You.

Your heart blazed,
with a warmth of spirit,

soothing,

alluring,

soaked in truth.



Your smile burned,
branding me permanently,

gentle,

tender,

enveloping my being.



Your love was complete,
from the depths of your soul,

unsaid,

yet fierce,

bathed in silent knowing.



Your dreams were poetic,
fluttering in the afternoon breeze,
infused with the distilled essence of rhyme.


I.

I squandered your generosity of spirit.

I vainly discarded your priceless poems.


Now I stand,

alone,

empty,

desolate,

wasting away,

rotting inside, day by day.

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne! Christ stepped down, from his heavenly throne. He came to earth… For 33 years, he called it his home! His mission had one purpose and desire in mind! He was to one day, be a sacrifice for mankind! He taught and gave us his words, powerfully spoken! He knew that one day, his body would be broken! He desired that all, would one day, come to know him! Because of his resurrection, all can receive him! He’s alive today! And reigns from heaven above! And desires to touch us, with his endless love! Won’t you humbly come, and accept what he’s given? And experience the power, of being forgiven! This can be your moment! This can be YOUR day! He loves you much more, than words can say! All honor and praise, to Christ Jesus, our king! You are our righteousness! Our everything! By Jim Pemberton

Today The Calendar Has Something to Say


Upon hanging a new set
  up on my wooden cabinet 
    I put red marks on the days that was meaningfully done

Where I count the numbers 
  from the first number that is one
     down from the last possible day that is the number thirty-one

Where I wait for the long years
  to pass all the things that caused me fears
    starting from the weeks up to the very short days

It was still vivid in my mind
  where there are colorful fireworks you will find
    A new year starting on a happy January

It was a sunny day in February
  and all people were very happy
    for it was the month of love for all to share

I am nervous this month of March
  for I am on the stage for a ballet dance
    yet I am very happy because sharing my talents was a chance

Sadness was within my heart this April
  when my favorite grandpa died
   it was a gray morning when all of us cried

Wedding day the traditional way
  My aunt was glowing
    that month of May love was overflowing

You're all invited this 23rd of July
  because it was my birthday
    lots of foods and balloons are on your way

Days and months had passed and now it's December
  Christmas lights are bright and the nights are cold
     It is the season for great storied to be told

Upon seeing this old and dusty calendar
  things from the past came back onto my sight
    memories that are bad or good and dark or light

All are special and will always be a part of me
  even I bought a new one today
    I'll keep this old one to be remembered everyday

THANK HIM WITH A GRATEFUL, HAPPY HEART

I've felt the warmest and newest sunlight at sunrise,
and welcomed it gleefully with a thankful sigh
at an early hour when nobody seems too alive...
a cardinal with yellow feathers brought me a surprise!


That gorgeous bird was surrounded by butterflies
with colors brighter than wild flowers,
swirled around them, to acccompany them
to my silent doorstep and start his usual, daily hymn.


"Thank him with a grateful, happy heart,
look up and His image will appear among clouds;
and although nobody has ever seen Him but Christ...
believe that He'll reveal Himself to us!"


And who will be the chosen ones from every present race...
when this event will occur? Those who have kept the faith!
So pray and with your gratefulness ever alive, give praise!
That promise can be visualized by the multitudes that wait!   


"Thank Him with a grateful, happy heart,
take along those good friends who have separated themselves
from a worldliness, which kept them apart...
they run to greet Him in the traquil evening to exalt His kindness!"

WHY DO I

I can’t find the words to tell you how I feel
You confuse me, you excite me
You make me feel like something
But I know I’m alone and alone

I feel safe that way
But somehow I feel threatened
I can’t handle that
I won’t go there

I feel my world closing in on me
And the bonds grow tighter and tighter
And the air I breathe is desperation
For the only way out

You talk about being more than friends
And yes you are right
Perhaps that is my fright
Perhaps that is my fear

I wondered and I pondered
Since the last time we spoke
What was it in me
That let my fear provoke

When you told me before
That someone you met
Meant something to you
And you where happy as yet

I was happy for you
And really pleased too
That some female had touched
Some deep part of you

But now as we chat
I feel so much drawn in
But I don’t want to go there
And I create all this din

So often it seems
That we spark off each other
With words or expressions
Or simply just nuther


So much of me wants 
To simply be friends
And hold one another 
In words that are wins

And then there is that part
That knows its unfair
That questions the truth
And why you are there

You have every right
To just be upset
Cause that is the part
That shows no respect

More and more lately
I just feed and feel
That emotions are something
That step in and steal

But honey my babe,
I need you to know
That some part of me holds you
With memories untold

Its hard to say bye
But I feel like I must
Cause just take a look
I act like a nut

I’m going on and going on
Cause its hard to finalise
Its hard to just think
This is my last goodbye

LAST CHANCE AT LOVE

                     
                                 LAST CHANCE AT LOVE

                      Winter sun startles ambitious songbirds,

                       Though their intent is sweet to see--
                    Bold trills freeze in their extended throats

                 A yesterday ago there fled a handsome thoughtless lover
             Who left behind nothing but tears and broken brown debris
                     Frost was that deserter’s clever ally, effortlessly he bit
                                   Tender Hands that tug love back 

                             “Hopeless”—sizzled in a tunnel of ice
                                      In white whispers:

                                      “This is your last love”—
                            The epithet engraved in a tunnel of ice
                            a staggering truth that shreds the fragile heart
                                             that fragile heart
                            once stalwart, now wounded past repair
 

                                             but spring will come
                                it cannot be wished away by frosty breath
                                                  or raging tears

                             Brilliant blossoms of feathers tickle amusement
                                                              into the stodgiest wounded soul
                              Wayward orchard fragrances in dalliance entice the 
                                           Laggard heart—a bit of hope
                                                    but uncertain of the fortitude to breathe

                          Even the bleakest of hearts aches to be lilac and spring-whole
                          
                     How much delight can be salvaged? 
                            for a heart so oft wounded in despair?
                     How much sorrow spent can be cleverly disposed--
                        Granting a prayerful battered dreamer 
                     A tiny whiff of just one more love affair?

WHEN THE DOGWOOD IS IN BLOOM AND THE RANGE HAS TURNED TO GREEN
I WILL RIDE YOUR WAY AGAIN LIKE THE HAPPY VISION IN YOUR DREAM.
WITH THE SUN SHINING ON MY BACK ON THE TRAIL LEADING TO YOUR DOOR
I WILL COME BACK TO YOU ALWAYS IN YOUR HAPPY MEMORIES AS BEFORE.

YOU REMEMBER HOW I WORE MY HAT? SLIGHTLY TILTED TO THE SIDE?

I COULD SEE YOU WAITING THERE AND I WOULD SIT TALLER THAN A KING
MY PRIDE WOULD SWELL AND I HAD TO SMILE KNOWING YOU WORE MY RING.

WE SWAM IN THAT LITTLE BLUE HOLE BENEATH THE COTTONWOOD TREES
THEN LAY ON A BLANKET STARING AT THE STARS IN LOVE YOU AND ME.
THE HOURS WOULD PASS LIKE MINUTES AS YOU LAY THERE IN MY ARMS
I THANK GOD EACH AND EVERY DAY YOU GRACED ME WITH YOUR CHARMS.

WE TOOK LONG WALKS HAND IN HAND THROUGH THE FIELDS OF WILD FLOWERS
CHASING COTTONTAIL RABBITS AND RED SQUIRRELS TO THEIR HIGH TOWERS.
WE PUT UP THE CORN IN THE SUMMER AND GATHERED PECANS IN THE FALL
LIFE WITH YOU MY DARLING WAS WONDERFUL AS I ALWAYS WILL RECALL

DON’T WEEP FOR ME BUT REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES THAT WE HAD TOGETHER
AND RECALL WHEN WE WALKED HAND IN HAND IT WAS ALWAYS FINE WEATHER
SO PUT ON MY COAT AND SIT ON THE PORCH AND CLOSE YOUR PRETTY EYES
I’LL COME RIDING TO YOU WHENEVER YOU WISH JUST WATCH OVER THE RISE.

Because baby we have a chance,
For us to have a great romance,
So, girl take my hand and dance,
You don't have to go,

Difficult Trials -Part 1-

Turn the wheel
Out of curiosity
I'll be generous...you'll receive
Something special...something to make you whole
Though the trials you must run through
Are a great struggle that can easily
Pull you down
And I want to erase your frown

You will feel way better about yourself
Just trust me...take my hand...
I'll encourage you to have a satisfying time
Just for your own liking
We'll be hiking
Those somewhat difficult hardships 
Together for eternity 
We'll spend time in the future 
Together in unity

*******he sea...Let's flee and be free!
LOOK how nice you look!

Trample those insufferable nuisances
That dare put you down
To the sea floor
I'll push them to the core!

Feel free to walk the 
Road of Recovery

Another Dream of Her

Yet another dream of her
(that smile, which brings such happiness to my heart)
she sitting with her sisters
in an idle photograph
she smiling like that,
arms around ones who truly love her,
she so beautiful,
dressed in her Thursday's best;
so beautiful like that
and you there in my dreams keeps me warm
(and my heart sings a tone, that the birds shed a tear too)
and I smile
and I live
and my heart flies to a place, not like this one
a place where love is in charge
and hate is not in the dictionary of life.
Another dream of the one woman who makes me smile,
yet the Gods do not let me have her;
but such a woman as that is not worthy of a man like I;
such a woman with such a smile as hers' deserves the best of the best,
and nothing but the best for her,
so as a man, I shall let go of her warm and glorious beauty
and give to a lucky man
and I shall not pout, nor envy him or her,
for something so beautiful as love and sacrifice
deserves such praise!
Oh yes another dream of her,
dancing with me in her evening ballroom dress,
in my arms,
as the smiling faces join hands with one another
and watch us dance in such a lovely dream.
her smile, such glory and so bright,
it blocks out the rays of the powerful sun
and can brighten the darkest of the Earth's four corners.
another dream of her,
that girl, that woman, that lady
who stomped out the fire that was burning away at my angry heart,
she gave faith to me,
and now I give her that blessing of true love
with another,
for I take such notion of her being happy with another,
than being with me and frowning.
Sure, tears have been shed, and jealousy has killed good men's judgment,
but such beauty as hers’ could kill a man.
Another dream of her,
my portrait lady,
my lovely dream girl,
my friend.

Moon

Might I ask about what the moon means to you?
It means the world revolves in a transcending path with a satellite.
Why does the moon shine in the midnight sky?
It shines because it is a guide between the world of the dead and the living.

So does the moon fill the air with hope?
The moon itself is hope for people.
Why does the moon pull us in with such soul searching?
It is because we feel that the moon is part of our every day life.

Children who asks these questions; I have strive to tell them some truth,
And for the adults out there I created a little Moon lite poem to sooth.

So the moon is our light in the darkest hour of the night
With romance in the air that is so bright
We all hold hands once in a moonlit walk
And with such passion we would talk
The moon gives us our pull on each others heart
With a dinner that we take part
The ritual of wooing ones heart is a great feeling of love
The moon is always there to shine right above
In time we think we are blinded by the moon 
But to tell you the truth it reflects the sun light during midnight noon
It gives out a warmth in the darkness
We probably do not think of it less
Because the moon is our memories of our past 
It shows it everyday and night and always last

My Sarah x

My daughter had to leave Ireland for work. She is teaching English in Madrid, Spain and is very happy there. She was home during the summer and when she was leaving, I was so sad to see her go but happy that she is happy. We are all living in difficult times with this global recession. Sad that our children have to leave their own country, the history of Ireland especially.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you prepare to leave today,
I already miss you.
How fitting 
that the heavens
have opened
for another tearful
 “goodbye”.

I hear you in the kitchen.
The sound of you
comforts me.
Cooking is your ritual,
writing is mine.

I will immerse myself
in words
and you
will be part of them,
for you 
are a part of me.

What a blessing
to see the essence of me
carry through
in you.

Smile anyway

It is better to love and lost Well, you have heard the saying                                               but what I was trying to say is to never love at all                                                             that would be sad and that would make a clown frown                                                       while searching for words to make you smile                                                                     Is that a trick question you are the one judging                                                                with that poetry police and destroying going on                                                             What thinketh a poet and you did not know it                                                                    it is all fun and games until you have won                                                                    Who made this a contest anyway needless to say                                                              I am going to give you a peace of my mind pardon pun or not                                   whether I win this contest or not I think                                                                          You should know You have already have one                                                                And by the way I hope you find all you are looking for                                                     love you like a sis and this I would have no one miss                                                        Jesus loves you  Thanks for sharing always                        *                            *                           - scientist find blue iceberg/ A blue iceberg is visible after the ice from above the water melts, causing the smooth portion of ice from below the water to overturn.

True Love Can't Be Made, Bought or Traded

Many call making love, from a physical reaction. As many try to find a loving satisfaction! True love can’t be bought, paid, or traded This is something that shouldn’t be debated! True love is from God, and freely given! His love can change the way you’re livin’! Only God’s love can cleanse the heart from sin! And bring true satisfaction deep within! If it’s “cheap love,” you seek… You can find it! But you’ll end up empty, hurt and blinded! If it’s true love you want. Look no more! Jesus is here... Knocking at your heart’s door! Won’t you let him in? And let his love touch you? He wants to do this. Because he really loves you! He loves you so much, he bled and died! In him, you can be made whole and sanctified! Won’t you accept the love he freely gives? It will bless you each day that you live! By Jim Pemberton

A Sinner Like Me

I'm a mess.
I've ruined this body You've designed;
I've ruined this heart You've shined;
I've ruined this breath You've shared;
I've ruined this life You've cared.
I've demolished this freedom You've given,
Yet You give it to me again.
Time and time around I have failed You;
Weak and falling trying to please You.
Earning I cannot for this is a gift from You.
Please forgive me;
Please save me:
You've picked me up and brushed me off;
Thank You for redeeming me.
Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.
I have fallen once again.
I'm a mess,
But You forgive me.
You save me
Time and time around,
Eternally,
You brush me off and pick me up.
Thank You for redeeming me.
Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.

Dear my Closest Friend

Note: This poem is written in the point of view of a character dedicated to another character in a writing my friend Laura and I are doing
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear my closest friend,
For many sleepless nights lost in dreams
You and I have met upon the reality seams
With not but hope and trust did you reach out to me
and show me what I could really be
something that was not evil nor mean
something that could be happy and see
differently; not in fear but in love and respect
Dear my closest friend,
I know I left you after times end
and it seemed as though you lost a friend
but fear not I still hod you close and true
for I would be nothing without you
I would have not,
and I would be for naught
Without your love and persistence and caring
I would be nothing but something everyone was fearing
Dear my closest friend,
because of you I have a happy life
and wonderful person to call my wife
All because of you and what you showed me
You and me, friends forever we'll always be
I will never forget you
nor will I ever 
be able to thank you enough
Dear my closest friend,
I love you no matter what
You are who you are and do not change
for you and I will remain as true
as all close friends do
Dear my closest friend,
I thank you for everything 
you have given me
I thank you for believing in me
and I thank you
for being there
and being my friend....

FAMILY

We are intertwined like a rope that cannot be broken
Your pain my pain
Your sorrow my sorrow
Your joy my joy
Your fight my fight
We are intertwined like a rope that cannot be broken
Your tears I catch and redeem
Your smiles I celebrate
Your problems we solve
Your blood flows through me
We are part of the same beginning
When our beginning ceases to exist we will still remain
For we are…
Like a rope that cannot and will never be broken

Now I Am Free from My Step-parent

A life of beauty and happiness denied, of innocence 
smothered like a flame, I have always lived; but when 
I hear your lovely voice, my Lisa--

now I am free.

I was dead before I even entered into this world, a
place cruel and without feeling, cruel and without 
the love and understanding I finally know in the rich 
harmonies of your voice, my Lisa--

which sets me free.

Before I could even hope to bloom like a sensual
flower caught breathless and naked in the first, rainy
sunbeams of spring a great evil--the threatening, 
inner hostility of a dark figure overflowing with 
bigotry--transformed me into a joyless 

waste of ashes.

From that terrible moment on I fought all the ugly
and horrible assaults as his unwilling possession, a
gladiator in the arena of his constant abuse and 
myriad threats, subject to his occasional hostile 
looks from 

across the dinner table.

But when I hear your voice and imagine its tender-
ness and compassion as an unearned gift meant for 
me despite him and my child-like self-loathing: 

I feel the love and self-worth denied me, taken from
me simply because it was too easy to not rape from 
a child whose only fault was that he was born 

defenseless and
white.

O Lisa! Because of the music of your lovely voice--
now I am free! Free from my years as a gladiator in 
the arena of his constant abuse and attacks; 

free to bloom like a sensual flower caught breathless
and naked in the first, rainy sunbeams 

of Spring again!

Beautiful Children

Singing around in love;
Smiles built from the ground.
Holding hands in the dance;
Laughing with brothers and sisters,
All in His Glorious Name.
Throughout His perfectly sculpted land:
Look around because this is it;
Look around because this is love;
Look around and know, understand, comprehend,
Rejoice because you are perfect;
You are God's beautiful children!

Rendezvous

We married with complete conviction

I Stand, Alone



I stand, alone.

Scratching for my truths,
peeling away the veneer,

I stand, alone, before this
impregnable cliff so sheer.

Cocooned in my solitary shell,
wrenching a smile from a tear,

I stand, alone, a little odd,
and definitely quite queer.

I stand, alone.

The Whores are my Women

I walk alone on freezing cold gutters,
with my jacket that has no buttons,
and shoes with the holes at the soles of my feet,
and the women look at me and gag,
they cry, they faint, they run away, they sigh,
they don't spare a passing glance,
they are the horrid creatures that have no soul.

Then there are the whores.
Yes, the whores stay with me,
they look at me and see a real man,
they see a real poet,
they see a real artist,
who really and truely starves for his art,
and they all admire me and what I stand for.

When I come around,
they tag along,
they sigh in relief when they see me
and they huddle around me
and they admire me
and I admire all of them.
They are my women
who ask nothing from me,
not one thing, yet they stay by my side.
They don't look at beauty, nor how big my bank account is,
they come as they are and look at me for what I really am.
They admire me, they love me,
they can't get enough of me,
and I can't get enough of them.
They all treat me right,
and I admire them for going out of their way for me.

Love is real, when real people appriciate real people.
Love is there when they sit there and listen to me
read my poems and they laugh and smile at me
and my creative genius.
The whores are my women,
and I love them for that, and I smile,
my heart laughs and they laugh with me,
because their my women
and I love them for that.

Please Come Back

I'm sorry for all the horrible things I have said,
I'm sorry for all the bad things I have done,
I'm glad to havve you as my best friend again,
I was sad, depressed, and desperate to hear you voice, and,
Talk to you again.

Oh Caleb, I cannot tell you,
How happy I was, happy to finally,
Talk to you after months,
You will always be my best friend no matter what,
You know that I will always be here for you,
I miss you a lot, why oh why must you live,
So far away?

Why do you live in Illinois,
Why did you leave me,
Why did you go away and not come back?
Caleb, please come back real soon, we all miss you,
But I miss you the most.
You are my best friend,
And I am here to stay.

I will never let you down,
Never put you down,
Never will I forget about you,
I will never hate you,
It is impossible,
It is impossible, because you picked,
Me up when I was down, you
Were always there for me, and you still are,
You never let me down, and you never called me names,
You Never let me be sad, and it was amazing,
To have such a good friend around,
So why, why did you move away?

I know it was for your protection,
I know you had to get out of that horrible place,
That horrible dark place,
Oh how bad I wanted to beat them for beating you,
You did not deserve that, and I hate that image,
Noone deserves to be treated that way; I don't care,
Who they are.

Caleb thank you for being my friend again,
And forgiving me, and for always being here for me,
May I ask one little favor of you?
PLEASE COME BACK??????????
Always~N~Forever,

What now old friend

I am so sorry but what was I to do?
I fell so bad that I am happy she hurt you.
The thing is though that I loved her first.
Each time she turns away it makes my heart burst.
She was happy with you at the time though.
That is why I thought it best I go.
Now I see the rejection hurting you.
I don't know though what it is I should do.
Should I help you when her back and condemn my heart to unholy places.
Should I go to her and leave you to these faces.
I don't know, I don't know.
What do you do with a heart that refuses to grow.
I dont want my actions to drive you away.
I realy dont know though what I should say. 
I still love her I really do.
At the same time though i see that so do you. 
So old friend what do we do now.
Which of us will be the one to go out with a final bow.

What if

if love could talk what would it say?
if love could sing what would it sing?

if love could talk it would say that, you are in the most happy place in the world, and that no 
matter how hard you try no matter what you do no matter what you say nothing and on one 
can take that from you.
if love could talk it would say that, every thing your felling is going to be with you for the rest 
of your life and no matter how hard you try you will never forget how you felt at that perfect 
moment. even if your not with that person anymore you will always remember. you may 
even brake down and cry and wonder why it had to end. but no matter what it will always be 
with you, you will never forget and no one can take it from you.

if love could sing, it would sing the most sweetest song that when life seems to be at an end 
brings you back to those most sweetest memories. if love could sing it wold sing out the 
song of your life and remind you of everything that made you the person you are today, it 
would sing the song of everything that ever happend witch brought you to that most perfect 
moment that you were once at
if love could sing it would sing to you in the most sweetest voice that would remind you that 
you were once happy and if you tryed and oppend up to someone if you let someone in for 
once you could be happy like that agin.

but love can't talk and love can't sing.. so you may forget, and someone may take it from 
you. there is no song with the most sweetest voice.. all there is....is fear. the fear that you 
will forget the fear that someone will take it from you. the fear of lossing your happyness 
and the fear of letting someone in. 

(i know my spelling is bad please overlook this flaw)

Figments

And he sure did not tiptoe in,
To whisper his charm.
Kindling a buzzing din?
Or a rustle fraught with harm?
Unbodied voices of delusion,
Screeching to trick,
One foot on cloud nine,
Shadowed by the Devil’s peek.

Pulling off the mundane apparels,
Draping my pale canvas
In squirts of colorful tubes.
Colors of fantasy?
Dreams?  Illusions?

Cleansing one corner of my restless mind,
Mind? Or do we call it heart?
He has tapped figments,
Figments that had been long purring
And sleeping;
Plugging the voids in my mind,
Let’s call it - the hollows in my heart,
With that which we call,
Life.

A REACHABLE HAPPINESS

Happiness, you are an endless pursuit
Everyone wants and likes you full
Exactly no one where you are
Your "cost" even no one knows

Abounding penny and richness
Signature brands of clothing
Dazzling priced jewels and gems
High technological tools and gadgets

Are they the ones that gives true happiness?

Each persons struggles to work
Competition a cyclic phenomena
Continuum courses to improve
All these, an avoidance of being poor

At the end, attaining all these..
Permit me to ask you..
Are they also the ones that gives happiness?
Maybe it does gives happiness

But how long?
How genuine?

Reality speaking, some have these
But they are not really happy
Some feels the lost and emptiness 
Above all, some feels longingness

Happiness is frantically been within reach
It has always been within reach
Found basically in your ownself and others
Ponder and tell, if do you believe so?

Sometimes I Like To Pretend Things Never Came To A End

Sometimes I like to pretend, things never came to a end. But over time, our love became a crime. I didn't know what we had, would ever end so bad. But then I knew things weren't right, when we started to fight. Now I walk down memory lane all the time, the pain is worst then committing a crime. We only caused eachother pain, but we were eachothers maine. I thought things would be alright, but I cried alot that night. I don't want things to change, without you my life is strange. You said you wanted me so much it started to hurt that you couldn't wait, now im just another person you hate. When you said you didn't care, I knew the person I loved was no longer there. You aren't the same, the new you is lame. We both fell, now it's hell. You use to always be here for me, like family. But now your nowhere in sight, things aren't right. Empty is all that I can feel, I still can't believe this is real. I didn't mean to let you get away, I didn't know what to say. Am i with the right guy, or am i telling myself a lie. I was afraid to loose what we had, but to you that choice was bad.

Life With My Wife

What's life like with my wife
The love-light of my life
Well she has many a quirk
If I mention I'm a jerk

One or two may slip out
And she will laugh or she will pout
It's all just meant as fun
Tonight though I may have to run

From my five-foot-two-inch queen
If she gets me, a bad scene
And she knows the very spot
That will drop me like I'm hot

It may be time to rethink this poem
I have to live with her at home 
So peaceful tonight I'll lie
As that snoring train goes by

Hello It's Jesus

“Hello It’s Jesus"

I’m 6’ 3" and 220lb man and He brought me to my knees, 
Yes it was Jesus

I wasn’t the kind of man who would follow anyone, 
I did follow Jesus

But when Jesus touched my heart and blessed me and I fell to my knees and I cried, 
I believe in and love Jesus

You can’t see Him or touch Him, He’s like a breeze that covers our land, 
Yes I know Him its Jesus

Strong enough to rule the heart of any person,
Yes to Jesus

He’ll lift you up and you’ll see all around as He turns your life inside out, 
Yes that’s Jesus

Most people are like me and they struggle day in and day out, with doubt, 
Cause by satan

Too busy with having fun and playing games to care about the love and care He can give them, or
To listen to Jesus

When I see children with their mother I thank God our Father for our Brother, 
Jesus

I Dont Know What to Say

I dont know what to say
But you take my breath away.
I dont know what to say
But you take my breath away.
You're always on my mind,
I think of you all the time.
You're so good to me, you spoil me,
I dont wanna go to sleep 
because.. Reality, reality is finally better than my dreams.
I dont know what to say
But you take my breath away.
Cuz I miss you, when I'm not with you.
I feel like I'm gonna go crazy
Gonna go, crazy insane...
I dont know what to say
But you take my breath away.
I cant get you off of my mind
without you, I feel like a waste of space and a waste of time.
You're treatin me, Like royalty,
and baby you're everything,... 
everything to me..
I dont know what to say
But you take my breath away.
you're so good to me, you spoil me,
I dont wanna go to sleep 
because.. Reality, reality is finally better than my dreams.
I dont know what to say
But you take my breath away.
You Take my breath..... Away...

In wonder's winters' wistful wrings

In wonder's winters' wistful wrings 

 
In wonder's winters' wistful wrings,
Windmills wait for their windstorm's day;
Worldly wreath and wrath of kings 
Writhe in wrong and wrought old rings,
While stars of happy green, in woe they pray.

In wonder's winters' wistful wrings, 
My love is rowing, and angels white it brings.
A whiff white of dreams and air beings,
While whirlwind whets the winter's whip gray. 
But who is there, where my heart sings? 
The seasons gathered to meet The Milky Way…
 
In wonder's winters' wistful wrings, 
Whispers of love enlighten the things:
Sweet serenity of green in the light's way; 
From Father Chrisman, the blessed rainbow sings  
The same new written poem with white wings…
All we became a tree in no time's amber, I pray.

In wonder's winters' wistful wrings,
With our seasons, with happy angels we play.

Jesus Is My Rock and Salvation

 UNSUPPORTED CODE Jesus Is My Rock And Salvation!

Jesus is my rock and my salvation!
He brings me joy, in any situation!

He is my strength and high tower!
Behold his awesome love and power!

He brings me comfort!
When I am hurting!
And speaks word of hope
 that are reassuring!

He comes!  And the darkness 
goes away!
His glory brings hope
 and peace to my day!

He comes!  And brings words of 
encouragement!
By his voice, he removes 
discouragement!

He comes!  Let the earth ring
 loud and clear!
His coming is evident 
and so very near!

He reigns!  Behold his majesty
 and great power!
He’s here to take away my sin!  
This very hour!

He’s here!  And desires to have 
fellowship with me!
How I want to be with him! 
 For all eternity!

My Madness, Me

My Madness, Me...


Confined by this straight-jacket,
strapped in, numb and dumbed,
a washed-out, has-been, also-ran,

body, eyes, the equilibrium of mind,
rattling like stones in an old tin-can.


Still, I am, 

I am,

and I am unchained,

my dreams taking flight, soaring,
above these claustrophobic walls,
of synapses, and dungeons of stone,

swooping through green valleys,
taking a detour to savour the joys,

soaked in torrential, evergreen memories,
of a younger man, with passion in his bone.

I am.

My wings unclipped, unshackled, free,

I am, and though I am unable to see,

I am.

At long last,

me...

A Love Story in ABC format

All I will say is how I did my best ever day to say you are my love
Before I go to bed and before I wake up I pray above
Cluing you with the best of my affections that I hope you see
Did you know that everyday I look at you my day is pleasant and that is the key 
Everyone that knows me knows that you are the one for me
Friends and family love you as much as I expect to be
Going forward with all my heart I give you my love unexpectedly
Holding your hand while walking and whispering to your ear I love unconditionally
In my heart I expect in return is a smile of faith
Just when we look into each others eyes in love we bathe
Kindly we speak to each other with passion
Life we have together we love our every hug and kisses in occasions

The silent lover

Thy eyes reflects the shine of the moon
Angel are you or are you god’s boon
When the melody of your voice falls in my ear drum
It makes me happy as well a numb 


I know it start up with joy and fun and it’s up to brain
Happy it makes me now but it’s got to end up in pain
Every single moment you’re in front of me
Feels I should go ahead and talk
My heart says I shall do it my mind says stop 


Wish god was here and I had done wish to spare
Id just ask you with the god and I know it would be fair 
The way you smile makes my pulse and heart stop
Is it infatuation or is it a silent love

Hope my silent love wont end up in vain
It’s your beauty that makes me happy as for your absence I always end up in 
pain. 

I love you now and forever and ever
But I can’t speak up of that as I’m a silent lover

Acceptance

Yes Darling I will marry you,
 It makes my dreams all come true.
To be your wife is all I need 
To love and cherish you is my deed.

I’ll wash for you and cook for you
Until the day I die,
I’ll clean and polish it up for you
If you promise not to lie.

I’ll do all these things without a whine
If you will love me all the time
But one thing I will not do, for it will make us part,
Is wash your underwear because I have seen the marks.

We are happy now as we can be, he’s never played golf in his life
This is a made up fantasy, I’m happy to be his wife.
Thirty – Three years our marriage has lasted,
And grows stronger every year
Two grown sons, tall and proud can make us shed a tear.
With love for each other we are happy to be, 
ALMOST an ideal family.

Finding True Love

For years, searching for a love so true,
Soul felt hollow , existence a misery,
Waiting for an embrace that never came,
Yearning for a passionate kiss, hoping to feel sane,

Thinking about past hurts,
Still pleading mercy from the blinding pain,
Unable to move towards the light,
Darkness feasts on whatever remains,

At that moment, in the pitch black,
As clear as day,
I see you walking with a smile,
Pain slowly disappears, fear kept at bay,

The darkness that surrounds , fragments and vanishes,
Holding my hand , giving a saving rope,
i knew then , that you'll pull me near,
With a warmth and love so pure,
your embrace a testament ,
that you'll forever hold me dear...

To Part is to Die

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

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

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

You And Me

I love you and you love me,
lets stay together forever 
and see how happy we will be,
through fights and doubts,
and worries and shouts,
i will never again be sad,
because when i am with you 
i am always glad,
We will have happy times 
and good ones too,
and sometimes we will even 
feel a little blue,
I will love you always
until the day that I die,
and everyday that you are 
gone I will sit down and cry,
I think about you every day,
In every other wonderful way,
I love you and you love me,
lets stay together forever
and see how happy we will be.

Le Vacance Pretentieuse: Buffet

Arabic labelling on bottles of water,
Room overlooking bricks and mortar,
Men want tips for being your porter,
Getting to food is a pitiless slaughter.

Piles of olives and eggs sit just right,
In bowls coloured an abyss of white,
Odd cuisine makes a peculiar sight,
This is the date I’ll be having tonight.

Cold meat and ham sit on your plate,
Plenty queues; too much time to wait,
Stomach rumbles, hunger won’t abate,
Hurry it’ll all be gone if you arrive late!

i am happy

i am Happy

I have found an improbable girl
not an impossible girl.
I am happy.
Because, in any other likeness
she is still she,
In any other likeness to me.
No matter the time
No matter the day.
the impossible cause 
has found an improbable man
to find another 
like me again, 
would be like me
Highly impossible, but
highly likely.
to find myself looking
would be to find her looking,
again
The impossible lady and her impossible man

Real Life Fairytale

Love stories, princesses, knights,
Mideaval nonsense and there funny tights.
Dragons, castles and magic,
Everything has a happy ending, never tragic.

Love at first sight, a kiss,
A happy forever-after, total bliss.
One single kiss saving a life,
A beautiful princess becoming one's wife.

A horse ridden into the sunset,
Carrying a couple who has just met.
Beautiful fairy tales I believed to be fiction,
Non-existent and in danger of extinction.

Now, a pair of eyes hypnotize me instantly,
Cherry red lips drive me to the point of insanity.
Her very voice is echoed in my thoughts,
A simple fairy tale, no danger, no plots.

Whisper

Whisper.

Let us whisper you and I 
In a dark little corner and no candle light.

W'll wait until  dawn and watch the sunrise. 
Then catch a gentle breeze or watch a fading star.

We pick some flowers and catch a butterfly

We cross a small stream, sparkling water 
catches the corner of your eyes.

We make a sailing boat from paper then
write a little song.

Soon will be breakfast, then at dinner w'll say a prayer,
And at night time w'll light a fire, and then we retire.

I Owe Everything to Jesus

I Owe Everything to Jesus!

Jesus’ death paid it all!
What have I given in return?
His death on the cross… 
Was from love and concern!

His life for mine… On Calvary… 
 Has been paid!
His offer of eternal life,
 has been made!

Through God’s word,
 he’s been talking!
And stands at my hearts door… 
 knocking!

I’ll invite him in?  As my guest!
Then, your life will be totally blessed!

He brings health and
 healing to my bones!
He can bring his love to
 my family and home!

“Come unto me.” Is the 
  the master’s call.
Living for him
 is worth it all!

He’s here right now! 
 In this very place…
And extends his 
mercy and grace.

I accept and receive him today!
I love him more, than words can say!

Happiness Sings a Song

A boy named Happiness
walked along the full streets of the world
with a smile upon his face.
He had no friends,
he had no family
and had the worst luck with women.
No one took him serious,
till they needed him at their darkest days,
they'd use him like tissue paper;
to wipe away the tears
and crumple him up and throw him in a corner
(they couldn't even put him in the trash can)
he too good for them,
he too good for all of them.
He smiled,
he sang his big heart out,
making the girls cry
and the boys jealous.
One time a boy named happiness fell in love,
with such a beautiful, smart and couragous woman,
with such a sense of humor
and when she laughed
his heart sung,
and his eyes brigthened
and the little boy named Happiness,
was for once in his life truly happy!
He found what he wanted,
not begging nor buying for it,
he walked his path,
till time ran out,
and all hope was lost.
He continued to walk on,
and shedding no tears,
only with a smile,
he found such a key that unlocked a hall
of happiness and glory.
Happiness was all the boy was truly looking for,
and he truly found it,
when he was least expecting it to come.
Happiness sat all night and day,
looking up at the changing skies,
moon,
stars,
clouds,
sun,
and that beautiful rose of a woman,
in his arms,
warm and secure,
she smiling up at him
as Happiness sang of song so sweet and so beautiful
that the birds all gathered around and joined in the harmonies.
Then Happiness and the woman kissed the night away
in such a moment so dear as happiness flowed through the air.

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

My heart is beating with upbeat delight 
You astound me…in every shape and form 
My spirit is dancing with unbreakable might
You surprise me…when you take my hand
And pull me outtah my jail-like dorm

And He dismisses me from my solitude…
My eyes are glistening with bliss… 
And I’m far from my demise… 
Only to find that there’s no need to feel helpless

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

Just protect me from any harm 
Let me make my own decisions…
To see the results in the long run 

You prize me as if I’m cherished like your carefree child
You don’t understand – I’m TOO foolish and wild
I haven’t even reached to full maturity 
But how eye hope to see myself grow and be set free
From the world’s mayhem
Is there a solution to this problem?

And I’m left with no answer…
My eyes are eager to see…another bright day 
And the night is coming to haunt me… 
I find myself slowly disappearing from sight…
When will God give me a purpose to fight? 
When will He feed me His awesome might? 

Just support me…especially during my downfalls
Please answer my calls!

And I’m left to venture off into His path…

Eye can’t escape my terrible nightmares 
Consider my calls of acceptance…my grief weighs a ton
Let me pour forth my tears – 
Do me a favor and cast away my fears
Steer me away from disorder and confusion

Eye can see you’re making great progress
You’re heading towards a brighter, superb future…

My eyes 
No longer witness oblivion 
My eyes
Looks beyond the earthly pain…
bEyOnD the affliction 

I spot a rope in the distance. . . . . 

Push aside the waves…and let me
Grab it this instant!
God feeds me His love…and treats me
Like a newborn infant!

Eye see my Father with brand-new eyes  
I feel rare content
And I feel hardly any resentment

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

Autumn and its falling leaves PART II

Autumn and its falling leaves     PART II


Some trees leaves were more lucky and blessed
To feel the touch of snow in winters on hills 
And enchanting fragrances of flowers on plains    
Without complaining and regretting any thing 
They whispered, about their lovely days and nights
They were happy about their stay on trees 
Their love for rains and longing for breeze
Their yearning for dance, music and Sun’s feel 
In Autumn, when trees are shedding leaves 
I love to watch the falling of leaves

Some other leaves murmured to me a different fate 
When I was moving amid a scattered tree shade 
In a semi desert forest away from my home
The leaves here were of different colors and shapes
They had little fate to attract the clouds and shower
Still during the time of their short fly in the air 
They too were smiling while departing from the air 
In Autumn, when trees are shedding leaves 
I love to watch the falling of leaves

The leaves were murmuring their story in my ear 
Their journey to this world and their returning
While singing they told how they lived a life full of love
Caring for others without thinking for themselves
Loving their friends and loving the God
Was the secret of happy life, they wanted to convey   
“If you want to be always happy, just follow my way”
They lived a life full of life and were parting without a sigh
Even while parting from the company of their fellow locks
Who were still singing and dancing on trees in the sky

What a peace I saw on these parting leaves
Although they knew, there was no one to sing
A song in their memory and no one to weep
In Autumn, when trees are shedding leaves 
I love to watch the falling of leaves

But Alas! This autumn 
While moving amid my favorite trees
I found some not very strange leaves 
In a stage of agony and freeze, before saying adieu
They were falling with pain and were crying
And were murmuring the cruelty done by humans
With Nature and with its enchanting children’s*  
And by madly cutting mans best friend trees

I still walk in my favorite season of autumn
And try to hear the murmur of autumn leaves
To keep the humans apprise about the agonies of 
Trees and their darling flowers and leaves.

can't tell

  
i close my eyes
and i see your face in my dreams, 
outside my door 
you were standing staring back at me. 
i never thought i'd feel this way , 
it been a long time honey 

i cant find the right words to say
how and why i feel this way.
i thought it was just a silly game we played.
we both agreed and said "come what may"

each other's company was overwhelming.
strange but very amusing.
we played fire and danced in the rain
who would have thought i'd be smiling again.

Girl, did ya ever find a guy and wonder
Why’s he seem more than a friend?
He takes you over and under
A starry night outside your bed
Can it be he wants to last?
He cancels dates just way too fast
The tension’s drawn it’s hard to see
The things to be that I can feel

thanks for the tea, heres something about me
nothing beats poetry, sitting underneath a tree
thankin' my family for a strong identity
people watching cause its free, beauty in the scene
has me staring with a cheese, a smile at what i see
possibly a dream,  caught up mentally 
imagining a few things, with this human being
who has the sweetest energy, soulfood like collard greens
all fools falling means I'm really dumber than I seem
being intelligent isn't just from memory
its handling impermanence light and sensibly
and lady I'm feeling your sultry melodies
we'd be crowded if its three, sit and be my company
must be a chemistry major cause the reactions meant to be
the love we can achieve, is safe from any thieves
 hold em from my queen, hearts tucked into my sleeve

Golden Smiles

Oh yes the golden smiles are out
rising over hilltops
(the same golden smiles that blind you,
when you wake in the morning blue skies,
In puffy white clouds,
young angels
beautiful in every way, shape and form
see me as a gift,
(they see me as a golden smile)
I, the sun child,
a man of God,
has come too many
and wrote them all a story,
and stamped them all with
such a pretty golden smile.
Golden smiles, golden smiles everywhere;
and everyone is smiling,
and everyone is happy,
and everyone is in love,
and everyone is smiling
(for what?)
they smile for anything,
for they all have golden smiles worth sharing.

A Path Of Flight That's Looking Bright

You take me on a grand flight
Every day and every night
A first class trip of loves desire
That is always getting higher
With the service I receive
I want to stay and never leave
A one way ticket to my heart
Is what you've bought right from the start
Snuggled in a cozy chair
I'll gladly fly anywhere
On the wings of pure sweet bliss
I was not prepared for this
When I started searching for
A love that I could adore
Most relationships would crash
Falling from my life so fast
My heart wings broken so badly
Every day my mind would sadly
Wonder if it would take off
Into the air and not toss
Me into a whirlwind of romance
And another hopeless chance
Until the engines on my heart
Would melt away this ugly clot
Of loneliness and despair
As I soar into the air
With a new love by my side
This is not a bumpy ride
The turbulence is smooth and slow
No news of crashing below
This flights in an new direction
Since you captured my attention

ON TIMETABLE HAPPINESS

Past the years of innocence
Moreover the renaissance
Gazing to familiar faces
Familiarizing myself as it effaces

Now, I have been here four days
I can say it's all worth the pay
Was taken aback by few changes
Doesn't matter as long as nothing hinges

Priceless happiness, I can say
Undoubtedly, No one can take
Obviously, I want to stay more
However, I can't as before..

Few months I have been away
Unexpected events make each way
Defying the odds on quay
All the best, I want to lay

The Sieve of Time



The Sieve of Time



Cast ashore,
along the banks of time,

whirling through the passing years,
clinging to my futile scribbles set in rhyme,


Cast ashore,
thrust into an unrehearsed pantomime,

clenching slivers of joy as weariness descends,
lulled into a peaceful slumber exhilaratingly sublime.


Cast ashore,
hazily adrift, a dandelion seed on the wings of time,

trapped in the sieve of spiralling memories,
caught between pristine bliss, and reeking slime.


Cast ashore,
flung aside for no discernible crime,

my human heart thuds with elusive hope,
though battered, bruised, and covered in grime,

I stagger ashore, 

alone,

embracing each moment of detached, oblivious time.

Distant African Nights

Those Distant African Nights...


1.


The shadows swayed in your candlelit room,

a cool breeze teasing your bare back,


streaks of lightning forked in the Johannesburg night,

as my hands stroked your hair,

kissing your soft mouth,

holding you,

ever so tight.



2.


You whispered that you loved me,

and I kept silent,


the rain fell, 
shadows danced,
thunder rolled,

the breeze teased your naked back,

you whispered that you loved me,
as my lips found yours,

the rain washed over our tender nights,


lightning and candlelight,

etching poems on your burnished skin,


yet,

a fear gnawed at me,

deep within.



3.


We parted ways,
and you could never forgive me, you said,


now, after numberless thunderstorms,

the rain that falls,


echo the countless tears that I have shed.



4.


You are long gone,

far away,

happy, I pray,


yet the memories persist,

those precious moments shall never, 
ever,

like the Jo'burg rains,
trickle away,

and I wish you well,
for loving me as you did,

for it was I who was not worthy,


then,


and it is I who is not worthy,


now...



5.


You were always true,


it was I who always,

always,

refused to,


to give myself,


completely to you.

Sad love poems

No more sad love  poems
But what can I write then
I’ve had no happiness
So how can I write a happy one?

All I have to write about 
Is lies
Broken promises
Shattered hearts
Scared souls
and that stupid face that glooms in my mind.

You tell me to write a happy love poem
I’ll try
Can I lie
Is that alright?

Because isn’t that what love is about
...Lies?

(a short poem)


nothing can ever be compared
for a woman who's working all day.
late at night she'still awake.
striving hard to provide their needs.
one Valentine morning has came.
four little darlings surprised her.
lovely cards crafted by their hands,
and a heart stuff they bought from their coin bank.
truely that life's sometimes unfair.
too many struggles,roughroads and pain,
have all gone when these four little ladies came.

That's Where The Lord Lives

I walk outside to see all that I can see.
Over there is our house, our home,
In the distance, you can see.
And that place of hallowed happiness
Forever has been our home
And forever will be so evermore.
That house is small but raised us tall,
From the perfect parents who loved us so
To the perfect sister for which every man would want.
The house built us all up strong.
More than a mere building,
It is a place to love and be loved,
A place that hands you hope that you give right back, 
And a place of everlasting faith.
This home is where my parents taught me about God
And opened me up to Jesus.
They opened the eyes of the blind for all to see,
And the blind included me.
They taught me to be the best I can be;
The best things in life are free.
They have taught us so well,
And they all have saved my soul.
Even if I am not there now,
I carry Him with me.
I carry them with me.
I carry Their values and Their teachings with me.
In this house, this home,
We reside.
We cannot forget this.
This is where my Mother lives.
This is where my Father lives.
This is where my Sister lives.
This is where We live,
In this loving, caring, beautiful home
They made just for us.
We cannot forget this either.
This is where it all began. 
This is where the hunger and thirst was created;
This is where we are fulfilled.
We cannot, we must not forget this:
This is where God lives.
This is where Jesus lives.
This is where The Lord lives;
The Father and The Almighty.
This is where We live;
This is where We reside.
We must not forget this.
We must not forget this:
What a beautiful and perfect life this is.

Little House On The Prairie

I just love that T.V. show  Little House On The Prairie 
To me is nicer and more fun to watch  than Tom and Jerry 
I still enjoy watching this  very clean family show 
It make me happy and like a song when I watch it in my heart flow 
Charles Ingalles was a very dear and loving man 
A  very caring farmer for a living always working his land 
Always providing for the ones  that he truly always adores 
Never afraid of whatever awaits for him in the outdoors 
He's the greatest dad and for Caroline just the best hubby 
In the show he had a great laugh and sometimes could be so funny 
This family show has been to me always so dear 
Back then this very old family show played for so many a year 
Most of the characters in this show are based on real events and folks 
The Ingalles lived a long time ago in the late 1800's and that's no a joke 
They were people much like you and me that I do admire 
Their story retold by their daughter Laura Ingalles Wilder much inspire 
I just wish that today families were  a lot nicer to each other like they did 
The Ingalles have so much  love for others that they didn't hid 
I always wished I had a daddy just like  Charles Ingalles to Laura was 
He was a great family man and for that he deserves a great applause 
It would have been so nice to have a  hubby like that now I'd be so glad 
These people were nice and when I read that  they suffered, it makes me sad.

A Poet in Love

I am a poet,
A poet in Love!
I see the whole of the universe
spun in a ball
and rolled through the mirror of deception.
The mirror cracks with violent shattering
pieces everywhere, but soon a calm silence, for a still second,
quites the room.

Oh the sweet and fair maidens,
who walk hand in hand
gossiping on their fellow Man.
I smile and I say to them,
"Oh you think so, well I am a poet."

They look at me, with confused smiles.
They look at me and say in confused tones,
and low voices, "You sir, are no poet..."

I gasp for air and hold my tongue,
as I repeat myself more clearly,
"Mabye you did not hear me, for I shall tell you once more. I am a poet in Love!"
I shout out in their sweet and ratched faces.
As they pull up senerios of me, as a crazy fool, playing in their minds.

I dance and sing and write them all love letters;
Using ryhmes, haikus, romantic phrases and settings,
I tell you though, not an easy tool, to dance and sing and to write poetry.
But it is possible, when you are a Poet in Love.

Now watch as the ladies walk to their men in jackets and fast, red cars.
I laugh and say, "Your loss"
Not too many women these days like poets.
I walk and walk and walk, on and on and on...
Over and over and over, I jump through hoops,
and juggle flaming torches,
to grab the sweet maidens' attention.
... But sadly, not one spares a passing glance.
I do not cry, I do not mope, for I pull myself together and I gloat!
I dance, and sing and shout from the rooftops, covering evening skies, like a madman,
"I am a Poet in Love!"

The old women, in wayward liqour shops, buying lotto tickets
turn to me and shout back, "You are a crazy bastard."
and I shout back with passion and alliteration, "Thank you!"
For nothing bothers me, not one insult, not one careless remark.
For I am a Poet in Love.

In love with what? You may ask me.
Well what is there not to love, when you are a poet.
I make people laugh, I make people cry,
with the stroke of a pen to a piece of paper,
I can even make people die.
For I am a Poet who loves his job,
For I am the one and only...
Poet in Love!

Your Whisper

You whispered in my ear,
a breathy secret, hushed.

“I love you”, you murmured.

I said nothing,
lost, in your arms,
I found a home. At last.

“I love you”, you said,
I said nothing,
lost in my thoughts,
I found peace. At last.

“I love you”, you said,
words failed me then.

They still do.

Without You



Without you,

worn down, weary,
staggering into tomorrow,
dissolving my todays, grim, dreary,

I crawl, slipping out of my skin,
flinging laughter, joy, contentment,
into the gaping abyss of life's dustbin.

Without you

Sliding Down

I’m hoping for my dreams to become a reality
I’m hoping for a phase of gratitude
I’m rejecting my hopeless fate
I’m accepting your side of the story…but don’t intrude 

Unexpectedly, I believe in love in first sight
I grab the rope for extra support
It burns like a vertical line of fire
I’m unable to climb, but I seem too far from my desire 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down… 

I cherish you like my own belongings
I designed you on my bedroom wall
I have you displayed deep in my heart
Believe me – you’ll never split it apart 

Every day I long for your touch – you changed my life around
My heart is blazing like the zealous sun…I prize my freedom and progress
The world is spinning endlessly as I kneel upon my knees 
And I imagine the memories we share with each other 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

When I reflect upon the joyous times,
My heart never fails
To pound vigorously for you
I’m sliding down 
I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you 

I see the light in your eyes
I don’t see an insidious nature in you…
I wish I hadn't believed in the lies
I never felt like a hopeless victim until I gave in to the darkness 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

I’m glad I've met you in the first place
We’re a perfect match – 
Don’t deny it…you made me feel handsome
We’re on the road of victory
We’re making great progress
We’re hanging on the edge,
But we were rescued 
From sliding down…

At least we’re kept ourselves alive……

THAT'S WHAT LOVE IS -Song For My Wife-

I could give you the moon
     And the sun
          And the stars up above
               If you let me.
I could fill up your world
     With the dreams
          That you dreamed about love
               We'd be happy.

We'll ride on the clouds, feel the wind, if we give it a chance.
Move to life's melody as we learn how to dance.
Greet the world with a smile as we walk hand in hand.
Find the sweet pearls of life hidden deep in the sand.
     That's what love is.
          Oh my darling.
               That's what love is.

I could sing you a song
     We could sing
          Through the sunshine and rain
               If you'll be mine.
I could bring you the love
     And the joy
          That few people attain
               In a life time.

We'll ride on the clouds, feel the wind, if we give it a chance.
Move to life's melody as we learn how to dance.
Greet the world with a smile as we walk hand in hand.
Find the sweet pearls of life hidden deep in the sand.
     That's what love is.
          Oh my darling.
               That's what love is.

I could give you support
     With your dreams
          I would be there for you
               When you need me.
Be the one that you trust
     With your life
          That's what true love can do
               It's so easy.

We'll ride on the clouds, feel the wind, if we give it a chance.
Move to life's melody as we learn how to dance.
Greet the world with a smile as we walk hand in hand.
Find the sweet pearls of life hidden deep in the sand.
     That's what love is.
          Oh my darling.
               That's what love is.


This song was written for my sweet and beautiful wife, Stevi. During the 5 
weeks from the time we met till the time we were married I had written and 
sung this song to her. We have now been happily married almost 18 years.

Oh Yohanes

Oh Yohannes
I must be honest
I’ve got a jones for you
And when I saw you, 
I remember the sun reflecting
rays of light on your skin 
so bronze, so peaceful, so simple

I wanted to tell you all my secret
desires and temptations
and kiss you and hold you close
and when I realized I was dreaming
and that this feeling was a hoax
I began to be led astray 
by sexual desires and thoughts of foul play

but in the meantime
I have fun with the fantasy of imagining  you beside me
I stay up countless nights thinking
about how we could defy gravity
and how we could somehow reverse all the laws of sanity
and just do something crazy
I can’t make it stop
I must be crazy

And when my eyes closed...
I wanted to fall in your arms and tell you about all the fantasies that were created in honor of you

And tell you how your eyes seem to remind me that it’s okay to be beautiful

Oh Yohannes
I must be honest 
Your deeply rooted stare 
will long remain a part of my fire
and my insanely human desire to make love

Hypocrite

I am a hypocrite and look what I just did:
I fell into my darkest pit; now, again, and again.
I thought that I was strong enough to live the truths I said;
Now I realized I'm much too weak; a fool too ashamed to raise his head.
God, please save me, please forgive me, and please give me strength. 
I love You.
I thank You.
I am forever changed.

My Eulogy

Life has been so good to me, but like everything else,nothing last forever
My time is up on earth with you 
As much as I going to miss you ,I must go
But,before I leave let me say my farewells

Do no wrong. I watch you grew up from a baby
To the person you are today… As I watch you grow over the 
Years I felt proud because you end up turning out to be great.

You two are the only friends who I knew that always

Unity Of Love

Happy, Happy as can be,
Together happy you and me.
Living in a home, together
Love will last forever.

If you Love God and yourself,
You’ll be able to Love someone else.
Your Mate is Faithful and true’
She Loves God, and she Loves you.

Bingo, like a snowball, it hits,
You’re in Love and it doesn’t hurt a bit.
Love for your enemies, those who like you not.
It’s the Father’s Command, it’s Spiritually a lot.

So be Faithful have Hope, Love will get you through.
God’s Infinite Wisdom, in the Holy Bible is for both of you.
Blessed by the Holy Spirit, Wisdom is the Word.
Anything else would be totally absurd.

my fault

everyday we talk 
whenever we feel down or sad
even though im stubborn and mad
and not to often here for a shoulder
never to cry on never there
ive got a sickness
ive realized today 
none of my business
that will push me away
i know how you felt a long time ago
with the tears and sorrow
i hope you live on to be happy
i wont be here to make you sad anymore
im sorry i was'nt there more
when you needed me 
to help you with issues
im sorry i could'nt make you happy 
when we were together
im sorry you werent happy 
when we werent lovers
you mean so much to me i just dont know
when will this end when will it go

World We Live In

I sit in the classroom
Start of a brand new year
I am really nervous
New students, surround me
They come from diverse cultures & backgrounds
None that I am familiar with
It’s like God gathered the whole world 
And placed us together
In one, tiny classroom

I admire the beauty of their different coloured skins
It’s like gazing at a mesmerising masterpiece
Neither human nor artist can replicate that kind of beauty and colour
God’s colour palette, extraordinarily vast!
I love the way their eyes stand out
Beautifully matching, their shade of skin tone
Warm and welcoming eyes
White, shiny teeth
Hearty laughs
Everyone’s so friendly!

Going about my school work
I listen to them talk
Talking in their native tongues
The rhythm and tones of the sounds, so fluid
I noticed they think before they speak
Where most people I mix with ‘blurt’ stuff out
I love the way they pronounce things in English
Faces full of expression, lots of hand gestures
Wanting to be understood, validated

I like the clothes the cultural people wear
Bold and bright colours 
Shiny, printed and patterned fabrics
Where I choose to wear black, most days than not
I turn my attention 
To the others in the room
They are dribbling on about nothing
Nothing, worth listening to!

Drawn back to the cultural people 
I notice some come across as sad, scared or timid
Often too shy, to speak up
To say what their thoughts or opinions are
I wonder if each knows how beautiful they truly are
I can’t wait to learn from all these new people
I am blessed to be surrounded by so many races and nationalities
What an amazing, wonder-filled world 
We ‘all’ are privileged, to live in!

A Day In The Park

We lay here together under the shadow of our favorite oak tree. Wooden arms spread high and wide above us in a seemingly protective stance, similar to that of a mother protecting her children. 

We gaze into the infinite expanse of the clear blue sky that can only be described as majestic, until or attention is caught by the stalking movements of a lone Cardinal sifting through the fallen leaves, searching for a quick meal on the outer perimeter of the canopy’s drip edge.

High in the branches of our protective mother we catch sight of the brightly colored wings of a butterfly lazily fluttering in and out of the branches and are suddenly aware of the abundant amount of insect life mindlessly buzzing around us. I turn to look at her, to catch the expression on her beautifully tanned face as she takes in all this wonder that surrounds us. 

I notice a sliver of her silken hair has fallen across her slender dark bough and lay across her delicate soft cheek. At that moment I am transfixed and suddenly aware that the total expanse of gods’ glorious creations cannot even compare to the beauty I have beside me. 

I take a deep breath and lean over to brush the hair away from her eye and kiss her softly on her lips. The soft wetness of her mouth and the taste of her breath immediately fill my senses and my pulse begins to race. Trying to control my desires and being aware of our public surroundings. 

I dare to caress the small of her back with my left hand and trace various lines up and down the full length of her torso, while gently holding her soft cheek with the other as we tenderly press our bodies close. Our lips are locked in an intimate but playful kiss, taking only but a brief moment to look into each other’s eyes, to glimpse the joy and passion that is surely emanating like fine beams of light reflecting off a perfectly cut diamond. 

Our precious time ticks by mercifully slow as we savor each minute that passes and do not dare waste a single second of this day together, knowing days will pass until our souls will reunite for another glorious day in the protective arms of our mother,  as we hold each other tight sitting on a blanket enjoying a day in the park…….

One December Night (The End)

One December Night
     (Continuation to the End)
    
All that year Santa had hoped and had tried to find a child's love that would strongly abide.  
But month after month he was given the boot.  It didn't matter whether he showed magic or 
gave them some loot.  Many children were selfish.  Not one gave a hoot.  
     Until one cold blizzard night, in a stormy plight, the frog rang the doorbell and walked 
right on in.  In the warmth of the house, after ousting the mouse, four children accepted the 
frog for his good.  It was a happy sight for the frog there that night.  Yes, they showed him 
great kindness and genuine love, the 
spirit of Christmas shown down from above.  The purest of love without expectations turned 
the frog into Santa who promptly gave each one hugs.  “I'll be back with my sleigh to leave 
gifts on Christmas night.  Thank you dear children for your gifts of love tonight.  Leave me 
some cookies.  I shall eat no more bugs!  He laughed as he juggled three gifts in the air.  
Then, soon disappeared out of sight by the moonlight.  
     The children, still laughing and squealing with joy, had broken a spell put on Santa 
last spring.  And the mean old witch that had made him a frog, sat sadly outside all alone on 
the log.  She had made him a frog with a croak, out of tune.  She wanted his voice instead of 
her own.  Christmas carols she had heard bring so much joy.  She could not carry a tune for 
one single song.  She had hoped she could sing if she stole Santa's voice. But the love from 
the children left her no choice.  The spell had been broken by love's sweetest choice. 
But while they were happily playing about, they noticed the wand from the brown bag lay 
out.  So they went to the witch and gave her a voice.  And taught her that goodness over bad 
is a choice.  So together they played with the now happy witch.  Who gave up her evil and to 
goodness did switch.  The gift of pure love and light in the world is a gift to all who give 
heaven a whirl.  For even the wickedest of wicked have some goodness in them.  So, 
encourage the right and to evil say, “Take a flight!”   (And let God be the judge…)

Bradlee Joe Rasmussen

Bradlee Joe is mine, he's always been mine,
The younger brother of David Authur Rasmussen Jr.,
Those gorgeous brown eyes staring at me, natural hair color,
That's brown; just like his brothers, but he dyed it blonde.<3
That gorgeous angel face, I think of him everyday all day, think of,
Those memories, that smile, that laugh, that voice, those strong arms,
The strong arms that hold me, just like his brother used to.
The sweet things he says to me, those precious eyes look into,
Into mine, the way he runs his fingers through my hair, the way he tickles me,
The way we play wrestle, the way we talk, the way we look at each other.
Eyes full of wonder, wonder how long we'll stay together, then he says,
He says "Baby we'll stay forever", and I believe every word he says,
My God if he only knew, knew how he makes my heart pound, the way,
The way it's just so easy to talk to him, man I can tell him anything, and I know,
I know that he'll keep it a secret, that's why I trust him with everything,
Everything inside of me. Everytime he asks me if I wanna start,
Start over with him, I always say yes, because I love him!!
No matter how much he hurts, I'll always love him, I do, because,
Because I know it's real, I love him with everything inside of me,
I want to wake up next to him everymorning and fall asleep,
Fall asleep in his arms everynight, say "I do" to him, have his,
Have his children, be in love forever, my God I've never felt this way before.
I fell for him the first moment I saw his gorgeous smile light,
Up that dark lunch room, the way you hugged me tight, exchanged,
Exchanged numbers with each other, and the way we talked on the phone for hours on end,
Oh how I wished for you to be mine, How I still wish to change,
Change my name to Briana Lynn Rasmussen.
Babe I can't inagine a world where you don't exsist, babe without you,
Without you I'd honestly die.
The son of David Authur Rasmussen Sr. and Sandi Rasmussen,
The brother of David Authur Rasmussen Jr, and Cheyeene Rasmussen,
The cousin of Kenneth Michael Hampton, better known as Mikey :) You have
Have a older bro, a younger sister & brother, and you have you,
Father's eyes, your brother's strength, your mother's beauty, and your crazy,
Crazy sense of humor.
With you I can't stop smiling, laughing and giggling.
Babe I am finally home, it's been a long time, and I am glad you kept the bed warm for me,
My home is with you, it's the only place where I belong, and babe I am so glad to be home.
I love your curly hair, I love the way you hold me, the way you kiss me, the way yoy,
You love me.
I love everything you do, and everything about you,
Babe I really do hope that day comes where we say "I do."
Hell I'd do it right now if I could, if you wanted me the same.
I want to be the mother of your children, I want to be the on;y woman you come home to,
Come home to after work, the one you give sweet kisses to, and the one you tell,
Tell me about your day, the one who wants to fall asleep in your arms, and 
Wake up in your arms with my head on your chest, see your sweet smile everyday,
Hear the words "Good Morning Baby, how'd you sleep?"
I'd reply sleepily "Great, how bout you Angel?" I love everything about you, everything
Everything you say, babe I love the fire in your eyes, the way you are protective over me,
The way you fight for me.
Babe I just wanna be your forever, and when we die baby,
I want to be laidto rest next to you, or with you in the same casket, because,
Because I'm only me when I'm with you, you are the only one who keeps me warm, The only one
Only one who makes me feel like I am home, like I'm finally alive,
Like I'm finally me, babe you are my better half and really honestly,
I've been so lost without you, and I am so glad to be back home.

I Push You Away

You
You take me away from this
You bring me to a happy place
Our happy place

And you
You know exactly what to say to me
So I won’t be lonely
We won’t be lonely

So why
Why do I find the need
And I find the need
And here it comes

I push you away
And I push you away
Even when you say it’s ok
I push you away

Concerto of the Enchanting Night

Concerto of the Enchanting Night
 Arabic Poem by: Fadhil Aziz Farman *
 Translated Into English by:
 Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk)
 =========================

You suggest the songs
And leave me deep
In the splendor of the rhythm and melody. 
Drag my day out of the dream to wakefulness 
I have not known 
But the philosophy of dreams 
In all my days.

You suggest the songs
And leave me floating in a wave of fragrance 
Showered down By Lynol Ritchie 
With his love songs 
Or by Yanni with his tunes.
 
And dance
Do the tango 
Do the waltz 
Do the ballet or the jerk dance
Dance as you please 
Or spin around the Earth-pole,
O symbol of amazing taste, 
Rouser of lightning in the sky,
And crown of all beauties.
 
Here I am intoxicated
By the melody pulsating in your figure 
And by the bashful roses 
On your cheeks,
O sweet wine in my chalice and my vats.
 
You suggest the songs
And at the end of the round
Put your head on my chest, 
O child of my poems, 
And listen to my heart singing them 
With the virgin tears of joy 
Flowing down the violin’s cheek.
 
You suggest the songs
You suggest the melody 
And hint the sweet words
They’ll come to you 
Then hold me to your chest like a child.
I will need your ear 
To whisper to you 
All that baffles my heart 
And my tongue 

You suggest the songs
And strew them
Such as roses 
On the desert of my life.
What remains for us 
Of all our years, 
But joy
Strewn like roses
And like dew
On the seconds?

Could have

He listens as she talks to him 
Everyday they see each other there love grew stronger 
As everyone assumed they would get married and have a few kids 
Rain like tears came down from the sky at a football game where it all started 
To this day she thinks about how if she would have forgotten about that boy she could 
persure that dream she had
She could have been rich 
She could have partied most of her life 
She could be in movies that she knows people would love and enjoy 
But she could always be happy with the love of her life,the one she fell in love with in high 
school  
Being that she did marry the guy she did not get to do her dream job 
Remebering either way she still would have been happy and right now she is 
Either way she would have found someone to love but would he have been 
As good as the man she has in her life right now 
Keep all the memories you have because someday you could get in a car wreak and lose 
Everything you have because that is what happend to this girl she remembers her 
husband,family and kids
She can not remember any new things that happen in her life so everyone keeps on helping 
her through it and hoping someday she will get her memory back.

My Cure

You sucked the poison out of me,
I feel free though I can see
The inspiration has also left my head
As I lay awake in bed,
But I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
I’m holding onto this escape,
Forgiven for my mistake,
You’re all I need, breathe you in,
You’re under my skin,
But I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
This cure has my head spinning,
I’m falling and I’m flying,
Hold onto me, let me go,
I don’t know,
Which way to turn now,
Your eyes have me held,
Spellbound,
But I don’t mind,
Why should I mind?
 
Take your time,
I stand in line,
First up, last one standing,
You speak words, commanding,
But I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
I tell myself this isn’t good,
Isn’t how it should
Be but you’ve held me tight
And carried me through the night
And I don’t mind,
No, I really don’t mind.
 
This cure has my head spinning,
I’m falling and I’m flying,
Hold onto me, let me go,
I don’t know,
Which way to turn now,
Your eyes have me held,
Spellbound,
But I don’t mind,
Why should I mind?
 
Behind these eyes,
I always believed in lies,
The pain stung me like whips
But you cure me with your lips,
And I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
I’m burning up inside,
Want to run, to hide,
But your light seeks me out
And shows me what love’s about
So I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
This cure has my head spinning,
I’m falling and I’m flying,
Hold onto me, let me go,
I don’t know,
Which way to turn now,
Your eyes have me held,
Spellbound,
But I don’t mind,
Why should I mind?
Why
Should I
Mind? ...

A Chipped Heart

A Chipped Heart...


Dreaming, my heart brittle as glass,
my solitary facade a pitiful farce,

shards tearing out of my skin,
seeking release, from cages within,

I am lost, in the dream,
bellowing out a silent scream,

torn from reality, drowning in the now,
yet I refuse,
I refuse to succumb,

I refuse to bow.



My chipped heart, may be wounded,
wreathed in pain,

still,

I believe, love, truth, belonging,

will take my hand,

again...

Our Divine Haven

This town was the place we used to call our haven 
You don’t remember which road we’ve driven on 
The stars were shining against your cherished soul 
You’re a part of my belongings 
You’re ascending above the ground 
The peace is still like hidden treasure – it’s bound to be found

I believe in you…I put my faith in you
After the miracles you’ve performed 
You don’t agree with what you truly are 
The sky is grieving 
You jump from puddle to puddle
You’re struggling to meet your destiny  
Even if your body is saturated in sweat
You must keep your head above the sea

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
I could tell you've been stressing out 
But rest your head on my shoulders and let loose your strain on me  

Each melody is an exquisite sound that bounces into our ears
Commotion and strife will cease and your heart will be free
We’ll flee  together…despite the unwholesome weather 
The voyage has just begun…hold my hand and we’ll rise like the sun
Trust me…we will be strengthened and well-equipped before we take that road of victory  

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
You’d rather be drifting away and never be seen again 
I wanna change your mind and erase your frown
Take your mind off of the distressful past
Let loose your strain on me  

Hey! I know you’re stronger than you realize
You’re not a failure – don’t be disheartened  
Don’t worry…you and I will earn our future prize 
This mess will clear up in a moment
Just stay by my side and never depart 
From the light… I promise that we’ll endure till the end
Just stay nearby and our hope won’t tear apart
We are willing to do anything to attain our wishes and delight  
Let’s take action and snatch our glory before our time is up 

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
You've been trying to keep a steady pace 
But rest your head on my shoulders and let loose your strain on me

Let loose your stress on me…
Don’t be under pressure
Let me handle your anxiety…
Reach towards our divine haven
Do you need a helping hand? 

I wish you a carefree 
Future

Friendly Love

There are a lot of things to say
Why do I feel so alive when you're around?
There’s so much to do today
But how do I get rid of the clouds – shadowy and gray
We're lying on the ground...
Looking at the stars overhead... 

You are my beloved friend – 
Our love won’t break or bend
I’ll love you until the very end…
I’ll love you endlessly…our happiness blends
Like coffee and cream– yum! 
I know…these rhymes are quite dumb…aren’t they? 

Our light will shine and burn out the night 
Maybe there’s a star in the sky that scorches with love 

You are my superb friend – 
Our love won’t wear off or wither away
I’ll love you until the day I die
I’ll love you every day…our delight will be
As sweet as pie – how appealing 
I know…these words are overused…aren’t they? 

Our flight will be as dazzling as the elegant eagle 
Trained to ascend for more than half his life – or we’ll be like the seagull!! 
We could fly there and catch it someday
Fly…fly..fly…with me! Shoot the bull’s eye!
Our love will never die…so don’t say otherwise
Or I’ll sink in dismay

A Rose in the Desert

A single, red rose
ruby colored rose that shines in the twilight
and reflects my love over years of single
and tragic heartbreaks.
A single, red rose sits in a beautiful and calming oasis
sitting there giving me hope for love to come around
and knock upon my weak and weary door.
A rose in the dry and hot desert grows tall and blooms
with beauty and such glory
that it could make a grown man weep, if it wanted too.

Neverland

Sometimes I wish that I could be, a little boy who was just like me. When I was young and not afraid, of anyone or anything. 
   I'll take my time to lose it all. But learn to run before I crawl.  So far away from everything. That this cruel world has thrown on me. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all. So hold onto, your happy thoughts. Grip childhood dreams, don't let them rot!

   I'll shake some hands, and crack a smile. I'm in no rush, I'll be here a while.  To face this world, all on my own. But in your arms, I'm not alone. 
   So take my hand, and hold it tight. Let's spread our wings, and take to flight. We'll break the boundaries, of any road. And go seek out, our pot of gold. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all. So hold onto, your happy thoughts. Grip childhood dreams, let the bad ones rot!
   
Sometimes I believe in miracles. Sometimes I hate this cold hard world. 
Sometimes I just break down and cry. 
That's when my angels help me fly. 

Carry me, high upon your shoulders. Don't let me, grow any older. For Neverland, is where we make it. I'm happy now, no need to fake it. 
   In troubled times, I drift away. And let my childhood memories play. When lost and lonely, pick up the phone. Dear mom and dad, I'm coming home. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all...

The Point

O grand and gracious Jehovah
Grand Author of creation
Source of my inspiration
Cage me within the shade of your umbrella
Accept my pleas for forgiveness
Allow me dwell in your blessedness
Protect me as I sleep
Like a shepherd would his sheep
O wise and merciful One
You sacrificed your only son
For my sake to prove a point
A point being the joint
Between creator and creation
Love me Lord in the name of your son.

Waltz Of The Teddy Bears

When my daughter was a little girl we used to play a game
It really had no structure and it never had a name
But every time we played it I forgot all of my cares 
And now we always call it the waltz of the teddy bears

We gathered all her animals, the stuffed ones so you know
We’d pretend they sang and danced, it was really quite a show
No matter what the others did the favorite act of all
Was when the teddy bears would waltz at the closing of the ball

These teddies were her favorites and we saved them until last
The silly things we made them do were really quite a blast
I’d make them waltz across the bed dancing with a wiggle
She loved to see them frolic and it always made her giggle

Gradually my daughter grew and the waltzing soon did fade
But I can still remember all the laughter that they made
Those times have passed as all things do but in my memories
The teddy bears still sing and waltz as happy as you please

When my daughter left for college we were cleaning off her shelves
We found her old stuffed teddy bears sitting there all by themselves
I picked them up and took them over to the bed and then
The teddy bears performed their silly waltz for her again  

Very soon we both were laughing and then suddenly she cried
And I couldn’t help but shed a tear no matter how hard I tried  
We both knew that those times we had shared were very dear indeed
And I told her that the bears were here if there should be a need

They’re only worn out teddy bears with the fabric getting rough
But don’t even try to buy them because you haven’t got enough
I have had happy times in life but none of them compares
To the times spent with my daughter and the waltzing teddy bears

already over you

you lied
you cheated
you played games with my heart
you hurt me 
you made me feel like i was nothing
you tore me apart
you promised you would never hurt me
what happened to that
do you remember
what was i to you
someone to live with you 
clean your house
make you feel wanted at "home"
funny word isnt it. 
home
four letters 
yet when you say it, 
you feel safe and warm and loved
you used that against me
and left me with nothing
no money
no house
no car
no job
nothing
and do you care
no 
as long as you have her youre happy 
but shes not happy with just you
ah but you know that
it takes all of your best friends to make her happy
but you two deserve each other
to make each others lives miserable
youre both pathetic in my eyes
cant decide what you want
dont know what you have
i hope you see how happy i am
even when it seems i have nothing
i have something youll never have
love. 
thats what youre looking for 
but youre looking in all the wrong places
instead of looking in the bed, under the covers
if you would have just opened your eyes
it was right in front of you
but now its too late for all that
im already over you.
*kisses*

YOU DO UNDERSTAND

DO YOU UNDERSTAND!!!
A  man smiling at his wife’s face  after marriage
Looking  sweatiness inwardly and outwardly confused  in the reception hall
Stopping  to dance with his bride  and refuses to bend his waist; 
Nobody notice his coldness except the newly wedded  wife
Honey, why do you wants  to disgrace me in my happiest day? 
Losing his hands off the Bride, moving hastily, with one side neck bends back
God, help me. I can’t  tell this to anyone; Who cares about what am going through.
My heartbeat  increases, blood dropping  inside my heart, eyes of acquaintance staring ; 
To understand the music of my  emotion as cold descended on me like bees. 

 You do understand 
That my heart is about falling out my chest.
 Friends and families, busily eating, drinking, shouting  
 Throwing themselves on each other; waving tails like a happy dog 
Believing that I am happy seeing them around;
Yes! Happy. But who know  the next news after  reception hall? Except me.
Bridesmaid, holding my hands in dancing and consolation ; 
 To waiting my groom to re-surface again.
Beckoning  on the  wind for hope; the wind  stops blowing.
Suddenly, she saw  best friend leeching  round her groom's body, crawling, twisting like  two waves.
Hands of warmness , spiral out impulses of  feelings, romantics, lips-to-lips
As the light went off in the reception hall, gross darkness whispers, 
 My heart jumped out of me; looking around, helpless faces in the dark screamed  
I know glimpse of my spotless face wouldn’t let you be;  even at the wedding altar.  
Your eye’s colour  turned me from dancing with my bride
Just to say goodbye with a gift of  last kiss; softening  your charming skin between my fingers; will holds my weakling lips with ignition.

Visiting my useful moment; I saw my bride’s eyes raining waters un-stopping .
Never mind my cheaply and childish slippery  off your hands
I know you are mine; created for me and given  as gift when I was lonely.
 Looking into my side; what do you see? I saw the Place where I  came out from during creation.
You are the  bone of my bones; as precious as my life, so you are 
I will  treasure  you till death do us apart 
The flowing streams of your beauties; runs into me like morning waters that  runs  into the fish body.  
In truth, perfect eggs of emotion are hatch into  home of understanding.
In you; my days be long.

Pastor Emmanuel. A. Brown

When I Think of You

When I think of you...
No longer do I feel blue
My love for you is so true

When I think of you...
You're my shining star
When I look around me
There you are

When I think of you...
I want you to hold me tight,
And we make love all through the night

When I think of you...
I want my every days' to shine
Just knowing that you are all mine

When I think of you...
My lover, my forever friend,
I will love you 'til there is no end

I Love God Very Much


I’m going to tell God
how much I love him!
I’m happy to be able
to tell him!

I’m going to stop
and pray…
There’s so many things
 I want to say!

I know that God
will help me!
He’s my friend!
And is always with me!

I’m going to read
his word too!
It gives me direction,
as to what I should do!

Please God… 
Reach down and touch me!
And put your loving arms,
all around me!

God gave me salvation! 
I sure needed it!
All that I need… He’s already
completed it!

An Astronaut

I think I was an astronaut
Aimed for the stars.
They fill me up;
They refuel my tank.
They enable me to believe,
Telling me to never give up
As they follow me all of my days.
If only we could see the beauty
That they truly are.
They shout out dreams
That we can reach so far.
Climb into the rocket
And liftoff!
On a journey to discover ourselves,
We are taught so much more,
Learning our goals are only a plan away.
Even thought we must return,
I know that I will be back.
I am an astronaut,
And we always reach for the stars.

Peacetime Summer Reds

The morning night thunder-shone
The bright stars fractured me
You in sudden surprise
Whirling in your misgivings
Baby gulls sit on our heads
And we weep forgetting to be merry
Broad is the scope of infinity
Meet me in brackish waters
Death to focus
Death to style
Come worming up to the hole
Peacetime summer reds
I can eat a clock and dream of orangutangs
Forgive these latches
Remove them

badte rahe jindagi me,jis trah kaat rahe the hum jindagi
ek ichha hui kisi ko pane ki
hum ho jate pichhe , shayd na mile hume
par mil gyi wo khusi ,jo umid na hume
khusi hui, pyar ka ehsas hua us din
lga hume mil gyi manjil, par thi meri khusi do pal ki
chali gyi khusi humare daman se
khusi na mile ab hume dobara
un khusi ke palo ko man me bsa rakha hai
ab na aur khusi ki ichha hai hume
ab unhi khusi ke palo ko maan liya puri jindagi apni

Ready To Fly

I'm staring down the busy streets....waiting for the lights to change.
I've got a smile on my face and I'm gonna take on the world.
There is no stopping...this roller coaster I am riding...
Forget my fears, I'm getting over my hiding...
I'm ready to go, oh baby, I'm ready to fly.

You're my ticket outta here,
You're buying me first class,
You're pouring me champagne,
And I'm tipping my glass.
I see in your sexy eyes
You're taking me high,
The future is waiting for us.
Oh baby I am ready to fly.

I'm shaking hands with the stars....waiting for my life to change.
I've got a smile on my face and I'm gonna take over the world.
It's out of orbit...this spaceship that is blasting...
I have no fears, we are everlasting...
I'm ready to go, oh baby, I'm ready to fly.

You're the beat of my heart now,
We're making the stars shine.
You're giving me your love,
And I'm taking what is mine.
I want your sexy eyes,
When you take me high.
The sky is waiting for us.
Oh baby I am ready to fly.

Oh Baby I am ready to fly.

She is Prostitute

That was the first time I see you
And  I fell in love with you
I don't know your name and you
But I felt there was a great bond between me and you
I am little shy as I never talked to girls
And I was little nervous and I missed that chance
Next Day, I found her in my house
And I was very happy and dancing in my heart
But she was a prostitute
So what? I am still in deep love with her

She was coming every weekend
To share the bed with my housemates
But I am still happy that I can see her
And I never think her as a prostitute
Everybody laughed at me
When I said I am in deep love with her
But I don't mind
I am just in a need of her
And She is a prostitute
So what? I can die for her

One fine day , I proposed her
She was surprised and said
''Everybody need me just for one night
And I had physical relation with n number of men
Then Why you love me?''
But how can I say her
Love is just not a physical relationship
I never loved your body
And I loved your soul
Which is n times pure than n number of men
Though She is a prostitute
So what? I am loving her more than my life

NOTHING BUT HAPPINESS

my heart sings and swells with so much joy..
for finally, my sister meets her one and only "BOY"..
God truly works in mysterious wonderful ways..
leaving us mouth open wide, nothing to say..

reminiscing the days as we talk and shared jokes..
almost always we sometimes poke..
as we see, compare ourselves with others..
late in our twenties, "BEING MARRIED" we are after...

Named as the "SINGLE LADIES"..
WE DON'T CARE, we said to our daddy..
we are waiting on steady..
we don't wanna be hurry, go heady...

he will find us soon, healing all wounds..
each waiting period is fine, as love fills done..

a single candle

and you're eyes glisten
in the wind swept candle light
like angels dancing
on the moonlight pools of forever
the light glides across you
creating shadows of passion 
silhouetting my heart
luscious lips carrying dreams of eternal love
whispered to my heart
with every precious kiss
the shadows dance around us
fading into the embracing candles light
the night an empty canvas
to b painted with desire
golden seas of silken touch
the windows to your soul
a hallowed glistened green
and your heart

The Trees

I went for a walk
One evening in the suburbs.
I become lost easy in the beauty,
Of nature.

The air was cool and the wind blew soft and melow,
through the trees the wind made music.
The tree tops blew from left to right,
I stopped and fell in love with the trees.

The Trees looked down upon me,
they smiled down at me.
I looked up and saw the trees,
the large, green trees,
beautiful and full of life.

The birds living in the trees,
flying high over the tree tops,
I've seen beauty in nature,
but nothing matched the beauty of the trees.
The trees were my life.

I went to the park,
like the trees, the park was full of life,
and more trees stood there, high and proud.
The trees were beautiful and reminded me of peace.
I walked and took in the beauty.

I continued to walk down the avenues,
and on the sides were lines of tall barked, oak trees.
I had passed a tree, and had noticed a strage marking.
I heart shaped box, with initals of loved ones.
"Love you forever." was carved into the trunk of the beautiful tree.

I looked at those initials carved in the trunk,
and I shead a tear.
Envy and Wrath grew in my heart,
for I had no one to love.
But I thought to myself. Just then,
I found myself in love with the nature of the trees.

The trees were there,
The trees making sweet music with the swerling winds,
and I fell in love.
Soon after I found a tree, that had been cut down.
The emotions had boiled my blood and I fell to my knees,
and I cried, for my fallen love.

I looked at the cracked branches and the dying leaves,
I quickly wiped the tears away and took in a deep breath,
and I looked over to my right and left and saw the trees.
The trees all around me, sorrowful and crying with me
for the fallen tree.

The trees were always there for me.

Looking at my Fingers

 

In my room
I saw my fingers
That I have never thought of

It were all together
But it were different to each others 
I looked at and 
My other hand burnished each one

I checked one by one
I wanted to know
The best one and 
The hate one

Abstractly and concretely
I compared with 
hopefully and hopelessly
It was difficult to find 
An answer for both
Best and hate

I need all and love for all
Without anyone
It is a vacant to be called 
Hand of right or left

The use and the  beauty 
The movement and feeling
My heart and mind will reject
If one deviate from the other

I looked back the past
That already passed
I could not 
What I today attained

I wanted to write and to call
To my friends who are in silence
To my enemies to whom I closed
It was too late for past
But tomorrow is for all

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

She smiled, gently,
her warmth infusing me,

a soothing balm of simple joy.

She remains, scribbled,
on the walls of my fractured heart,
memories of happiness that once breathed...

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

Once the heart speaks
The truth comes out
No one can stop
A happy beginning, a happy ending!

Sleepless nights

Leads to only one!

A manifestation
Of the understanding of two minds
And hearts as one
From where it began
Straight from the heart!

Asleep

In the latter end of May
I learned how you lay 
with happy clean lips and 
heavy arms slipped around my heart
more tightly than the dreams
that carry us like kings
under our white star, under my
hands and hard work
to be here, next to you
to be a gift and a prize
to allow my red feet to forget how
far they've come 
at the sight of your peace, your lightly closed eyes, 
our happy juxtaposition
and I keep falling for you...
This moment was only a chance 
but you were the only chance I'd take
You're my first
though this moment won't last
I am your constant, I can't leave you
As a branch I may fall when you are dry
but whether low or high, I'll only be next to you
Where you lay, in the deepest part of my heart
I'll be there

Finally

 There was a wonderful change in my life today,
A sense of  something good comming my way.
     It's been a long time comming and  it's feeling right ,
I know this because I was able to sleep last nihgt.
     Loving you has always been so easy  for me ,
Holding on to you was  very different you see.
     Finally the clouds and stormy skies have cleared,
We can see it clearly now that it is so near.
     For years we have struggled  with this love we shared,
Only recently have the two of us become so aware.
     Of what we truly feel for each other these days,
Leaving no doubts it was meant to be this way.
     I love her more now then I ever have before ,
To think I was about to walk out that door.
     She loves me I can feel her much closer now ,
The happiness I feel makes me scream aloud.
     Telling everyone I have a wonderful thing,
The love of my Queen who has made me her King.
     We will live our lives making all the memories ,
This love I have for you and  you have for me.

Secret Crush

 I always stood clear, afraid of messing up, 
making a fool of myself, I just always had that fear. 

 I used to dream we'd be together, 
living in a fairytale happy forever.

 I still get butterflies seeing your face,
never thought I would get the chance to tell you how I feel,
when I'm with you im in my happy place.

 Looking into your eyes makes my heart melt, 
cant ever stop smiling when I'm just thinking about you,
words will never tell you how I really felt.

 Now that you finally hold the key to my heart,
you have the power to make me stand or fall.

My Vera Rosina

My Vera Rosina

I love all the birds in the meadow
I love all the flowers that grow
And send out their perfume
In sweet, sweet perfection 
Yet much more my love, it does grow….

For Vera Rosina
My wonderful lady
Who opens my heart like a flower
Because of your beauty
Your sweetness and your goodness
I am filled with true love’s hazy power

Each time that I think about Vera
My heart sings a song that’s so sweet
A beautiful melody
Touches all my being
And all of my world feels complete.

My Vera Rosina
I can’t help but love you
With all of my heart, oh, yes I do
For you have the essence
The sweetness and the beauty
There’s nobody sweeter than you.

Till death us do part I will love you
For you be a song of sweet delight
Whenever you are with me
My beautiful lady
My world feels so wondrous and so bright

The sun shining brightly above Puffy white clouds softly drifting by In a happy outpouring of love The world is such a wonderful place Depending on your outlook I say The choice is yours to be happy or sad So throw all those troubles away Cast aside all your negative thoughts Wake up each day with a grin It's great to just be alive and kicking To waste it would be such a sin None of us will be around forever Do the best with what you've been dealt All you can do is go along with the flow Your happiness will surely be felt I look outside and what do I see? A bright shiny world out there Share the happiness within your soul Tell folks how much you care! © Jack Ellison 2013

Fresh and clean

I love the way she smells after a shower
so fragrant fresh and clean
and how she sits there
so beautiful
in her dressing gown
brushing her long wet hair
until it dry's and gleams.

Her sweet perfume fills the room
and sets my heart on fire
heightening my senses
and filling me with desire.

Rebirth of Joy within Me

For many nights in the rain,
   I have been in a flooded-drain,
           As I tried to forget my pain
                When I last saw your face

The skies were burning,
     And your eyes shining
       With love, which refused
         To die in my soul until now

My eyes refused to shed
     A tear, when storms led
        An army of silent death
           On our passionate path

My bones refused to break,
    When a sudden earthquake
      From nowhere shook my neck,
         As the storms snatched you away

It is your scarlet scarf, that
   Remained of you in the fast
     Winds, that were blowing across
        The plains leaving only huge loss

But today, seeing you again,
   My soul skips again like a salmon
      In the waterfalls at a sunny noon,
         As I embrace you with tears of joy

A Rich Tribute

Mother Teresa been a historical,
and an important,
and a humble figure,
as she had dedicated her life for the poor and the needy indeed, 
the best tribute one can give her is by quoting a single quote of her,
out of the many though, 
the one mentioned below seems to be more precise,
in today’s world,
“Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God-the rest will be given”
Today,
in the rush of acquiring money,
many have forgotten this lovely aspect,
the aspect of love,
which is much greater than money,
and had crossed a number of boundaries,
from times immemorial,
today jealousy, selfishness, greed have taken over love,
wherein money is not that great,
than love itself,
as love is like a ‘Can’,
which can be filled from the top to the bottom,
unlike money,
which needs to be filled from the bottom instead,
love is greater than money indeed,
as we do love our Gods,
our wives,
the children,
whether they be ours,
or of others,
without distinguishing between their caste, creed, colour,
Love is indeed greater,
as we love the newborns born into this world,
our friends ,
wherein love can also help us to defeat our enemies too,
without love,
no one can progress on,
and neither the countries too,
Therefore love is greater than money indeed!!

“Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God-the rest will be given”- Author: 'Mother Teresa'

Young Heart

From my youth,
I knew no goodness 
Teach me His truth
So that I will meet success

I hope I'm making little progress

From my youth,
I knew very little at first
Teach me Your truth 
Or I'll remain in thirst

I thirst for His spirit - to renew my faithfulness

I have a nourished heart
But, evilness broke it apart
I had an energetic soul  
But agony took its toll 

And now I pray
To Him who mends us all
To save my young heart
From the fear of losing control...

Do I still have an innocent, 
Young heart?

The Raven and the Dove

The dark raven’s soulful flight goes singing Where an evening song bird blends in the skies Making flight into the grand wilderness Tender is the dove that goes up and flies The two birds as one entwine together But they are like two different beings The raven so dark and evil attacks While the dove, full of love, counters and sings White brightens around the darkest raven Suffocating the raven’s great powers And takes the life right out of the raven Darkness lost, dove conquers all that cowers Flying, the dove coos in joyful triumph Reaches the death of the raven below Resurrects the bird as a dove, and now They go along together as one show

Le Vacance Pretentieuse: Tipping

Gracious smiles, a waiter waiting.
The service: quite nice actually.
The drinks cool and food sating
My average appetite factually;

Who knew they had coca cola here
In the middle of the desert... odd
Isn’t it? I ordered water and beer
And here arrives our saviour, god

And leader, dressed in a brown
Shirt despite the pre-mentioned
Heat. He never wears a frown,
Even at rush hour not tensioned.

7.30 comes and goes, morning
Or night, we arrive, are seated
And eat. The waiter is fawning
But nice, the food is all treated

And we eat it all up, fulfilled by
A fountain of beverages he will
Provide. Full, we give a goodbye,
And place tips away from the till

So the manager cannot see, risky
Business. But how to divide the
Cost? Calculators grant only frisky
Fractions, I only had a mint tea!

Looking for

Looking for a happy romance,
And a pair of sincere eyes
Looking for a slowly dance
And a very random chance

Looking for a real lady
Who can handle life with care
Looking for a light of candles
And amazing sparkling glance

Looking for a miracle
Looking for a smile
Looking for a happy days
And of course sweet night

Looking for a miracle,
Looking for a girl,
Looking for a deepest eyes
And a flight of soul

Looking for my little queen
Who can keep emotions keen 
Looking with impatience
Where you are my happy chance?

Happy New Year

A VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR! I wish to wish you my dear A very very happy new year! But I can’t do the same, Because, I have a fear That you my get angry and say “Hello Mr.! Hello Mr.! Hey! What’s the relation between us, say? How did you come all the way To address me this way and dare To wish me a happy new year? I wish to wish you my dear A very very happy new year! But I can’t do the same, Because, I have a fear. I wish to open my heart-book and say How I pass my night and day; But I’m afraid that you may say “Get instantly off my way! I’m not going, not going ever To accept you as my lover”! I wish to wish you my dear A very very happy new year! But I can’t do the same, Because, I have a fear I wish to say that I’m fully bored With this life without you, by Lord! Pulls me towards you an unseen cord N’ you’re dearer to me than guineas’ hoard! But I can’t say it my dear! Because, I have a fear. I wish to wish you my dear A very very happy new year! But I can’t say it my dear! Because, I have a fear. I wish to say “God keep you whole the year Happy, joyous, cheerful, free of fear! May success kiss your feet everywhere! N’ may never come into your eyes a tear!” But I can’t say it my dear! Because, I have a fear. I Wish To Wish You My Dear A Very Very Happy New Year!

A Nice Addiction

Can falling in love be considered an affliction?
I must disagree.  I consider it a nice addiction.
Since I first met you, with each day that passes by,
just thinking about you seems to give me a new high.
Each of our encounters with all those romantic scenes
has done more for me than a supply of amphetamines.
You are the kind of lover I am so happy to know.
You have made all my cares and concerns fly out the window.
This boy is currently as happy as he can be.
I need you each day as regularly as coffee or tea.
Whenever I am in your arms, I do not want to break free.
In such a short time, you have become a habit with me.

the truth about love

love is not the breaths you take in, 
but the breaths you lose 

its not the things i buy or the things we share, 
its the things i break and the fights i start when your not there

its not the sleep i lost from talking on the phone, 
its not having the will to wake up now that your gone

love is not cuddling up on the couch and watching tv ,
love is crying wile trying to gather the strength to make it to the couch 

its not joy and being happy when I look in your eyes,  
its the pain and fear now that I am not looking in them 

its not our first kiss,
its our last fight 

love is not looking forward to seeing you, 
love is hiding in the crowd when you walk by

its not being happy together,
its not having the strength to be alone 

its not our common interest , 
its our disagreements 

love is not laughing and smiling, 
love is tearing up and turning away 

its not our first date ,
its him taking you to our restaurant 

its not the fear of loosening you and wishing it would last forever ,
its fighting to live with out you and wishing your memories would fade 

love is how I fell about you,
love is not how you fell about me

GAMES TO THE HEART

TELLING SOMEONE YOU LOVE THEM,
AND NOT MEANING A WORD OF IT,
TELLING THEM YOU WANT TO BE,
WITH THEM FOREVER AND HAVE,
A FAMILY WITH THEM,
WHEN YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE ELSE,
YOU JUST LEAD THEM ON TO BELIEVE,
THAT THEY ARE YOUR DREAM COME TRUE,
BUT YET YOU CAN'T SHOW THEM IN ANYWAY,
AND MAKE THEM BELIEVE CAUSE OF YOUR ACTIONS!

SO, SEARCH YOUR HEART, MIND, AND SOUL,
AND FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS YOU REALLY WANT,
IN YOUR LIFE AND FOR YOUR LIFE,
BECAUSE NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY, 
IF YOU AREN'T HAPPY YOURSELF.
BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS,
YOU ARE NOT HAPPY BY NO MEANS,
AND YOU KEEP HURTING THOSE WHO,
CARE THE MOST FOR YOU.

SO, WHEN YOU ARE READY TO SLOW DOWN,
AND ENJOY THE PLEASURES OF LIFE,
YOU KNOW YOU CAN LOOK FOR ME TO BE THERE,
YOUR ONE TRUE FRIEND WHO HAS CARED,
FOR YOU FROM THE START,
EVEN THROUGH ALL OF YOUR GAMES TO MY HEART,
I HAVE NEVER TURNED MY BACK ON YOU,
LIKE MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE,
WHICH SHOULD SHOW YOU, 
I TRULY LOVE YOU FROM MY HEART!

Will and Kate

There is a wedding in old London town
A handsome man and his radiant bride
Ivory silk made up her graceful gown.
A merry throng had gathered in the street
To see the carriage in which they would ride
They cheered to the rhythm of marching feet
The bells are ringing out the happy news
To tell the world a prince now has a wife
With waving flags of red, white and blues
The man who shall be king has found his queen
And together they stand in love and life
As one to face the joys as yet unseen
There is a wedding in old London town
The bells are ringing out the happy news

Teardrops

As teardrops appear on her aging cheek,
she thought of the cold night ahead;
Her chances for love looked awfully bleak -
sleeping alone again in her bed.

She thought of the cold night ahead,
with ghosts of past boyfriends dancing in her mind.
Sleeping alone again in her bed,
a happy ending, nowhere could she find.

With ghosts of past boyfriends dancing in her mind,
her chances for love looked awfully bleak;
A happy ending, nowhere could she find
as teardrops appear on her aging cheek.

Three Halves

Dedicated to a dear friend. 
You needed me and I needed you, but we were never ours to lose.

*   *   *   *   *   *

I never felt complete.
I knew something was missing, a part of me.
Now I know it was the other halves of my heart and soul,
My love, my kindred spirit.

I never knew how to feel full.
Was never fully happy – not with missing pieces.
Can anyone have three halves?
I do.  Myself and two others.

First… my lover, my home, my best friend.
Who stood by me through mistakes and poor decisions.
Who has been nothing but loyal and true.
So what am I to do?
Once you build the foundation you can’t move the castle.

Then… my kindred spirit, my freedom, my bliss.
Who within moments defeated my demons and set me free.
Who has taught me trust like no other ever could.
So what am I to do?
We still have that castle on a cloud.

But we don’t live on a cloud.  I feel the earth between my toes.

One other half of my soul lives in a body who is, never was, and never will be mine.
That’s right, I said ‘never’.
‘Never say never’.  Why hold on to this hope?  
We are such fools.  Always have been.  
Fools for our other halves.

One ‘other half’ will forever be chained to anybody but me. 
The other ‘other half’ is, was and always will be mine.
My heart is for both, in different ways.
Now I am as full as I can be. I have found my halves.

Being happy is not having what you want, 
But having what you need, 
And wanting what you have.
I am happy...

We asked: ‘how can one live in black and white after seeing in colour?’
I have an answer: ‘because we know what colour looks like...’
We know what to look for, how it feels,
How to see it through the black and white – even turn it into colour.

Remember? How to see.
For some, their other halves are in one body –
Filling both the heart and the soul,
But not for me. I have three halves.

I never knew where my pieces were.
Then I found one. Then the other found me.
Only one can fit my puzzle – yes, halves can only be two.
But why be sad about bliss? 

I am happy…
Because I no longer wonder about my pieces.  
May not be mine, but they are both safe. 
I am happy…

So Many Things I Have Forgot

Today I weighed the good against the bad
All of my happy times and all the sad
The things I have and what I do not
So many, many things I had forgot
A loving family that love me true
How did I forget all about you
And the loving children in my life
They can wipe away all my strife
Now I only think about what I should
All the bad always loses to the good
Makes me real happy for what I had
My happy times all out weigh the sad
So when I am feeling down and blue
I remember the love I had from you

MY HEART LONGS TO SEE YOU

My heart longs to see you
Everyday i pray we'll be together
But something keeps pushing us apart
If only i have the power over space and time
I'll turn back time to when we used to be happy together

My heart longs to be with you
Being away from you makes life lonely and painful
But it appears we can never be together
If only i have the power to make one change in life
I'll change life itself to when we used to be happy together.

Sting me my BEE,

Can you hear the voice too,

SO, careful with that LOVESTING my BEE...
your sweet venom infects my dreams and me...
I am caught up in your LOVE bubble, don't you see? 
now eat my sorrow tree, 
and let my soul free...

LOVE YOU MY SWEET BEE.

I WILL BE THE FLOWER YOU NEED, 
I AM ALIVE UNTIL ITS YOU I SEE....

Our Love Is Enough

We don't need to watch sporting events,
We don't need to go out to eat,
Because we found love,
And our love is enough.

I'm not supposed to love u anymore

We agreed to go our separate ways, each of us did not want to face,
The hurt we were causing each other, the pain that promised to last forever.
We had a love so special, we had it all.
And how we succumbed to pressures and our marriage took the fall.

So u went your way and I went mine, we looked at each other for one last time,
and I felt something in my heart, that I just can't define
Wanting me to stop u and make u see the pain in my eyes.
But I knew I'd lost u and had no rights like before,
And I told myself..I'm not supposed to love you anymore. 

Now the nights seem darker and I'm all alone here,
It's been only a while but seems like a hundred years.
I yearn to hold u in my arms again, but I think of all the fighting and don't want to relive the pain. 
Then why do I think of u all the time, 
Your gorgeous eyes and beautiful smile.
U conquer my dreams like never before,
And I wake up then, to realise...I'm not supposed to love u anymore. 

Now you're far away somewhere, that even if I wanted I could never find the way,
To u, to tell u I want you forever, for eternity I want our love to bind us together.
But then I hear you're happy now with someone new, 
And I'm in denial bcoz we were happy too.

Now I wish u luck and pray, that u don't make the same mistakes we made.
In love and in life, I hope u get everything u wanted this time.
And I've got to accept the fact, that you're gone forever and I need to move on with my life.
Then why do I get this feeling all of the time,
That my heart feels closer to yours than ever before,
Even when..I'm not supposed to love u anymore.

beautiful eyes

Eyes, beautiful eyes
Can I read their gaze?
A shallow blue in dazzling browns and grays,
One look and all is lost.
Like a spring breeze we float adrift together, your eyes your eyes what beautiful eyes, always seemingly singing bewitching every crowd.
You smile and no one can resist the happiness you wear like a winter sweater, it wraps around them hugging them planting seeds of your happiness within, the world is your garden your mile the sun kissing the many hearts lifting the happiness free. 
I am lost Forever swinging on your every laughter, I am your fool the jester at your castle, never have I ever been so enthralled by such a beautiful glimmer a spark I caught burning in your eyes, oh what beautiful eyes sharing your innocent love with me never seems to be a hassle. When I am lost you rescue me when I am sick you care for me when I am fading you shine a little brighter just for me. Eyes beautiful eyes mirrors of your brilliant soul smiling at me in all the suns fierce glory and that my love is the beginning of our grand love story.

I'm the Knife

I said, “Take my hand, girl, let’s go for a ride.
You gotta choose soon, you gotta pick a side.
Pick me, the good, or pick them, the bad."
She said, "Babe, I pick you." That made me pretty glad
We left Chicago, we chose route 66
Headed to Santa Fe to get our fix
Took a hit before we left, one hit for the road
Then we stopped in St. Louis to lighten the load

Takin' this ride was the worst decision
Cut your family in two, like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
Your family won't be happy with your life

Drained a bottle of Bourbon before we started our day
"Drivin' crazy is the best." We always say
The highway was our freedom, our only way out
Never thought this road would end, we didn't have a doubt
Stopped in Oklahoma City, where the fields are endless
We only had each other, it seemed we were friendless
Drained another bottle when we checked in for the night
Got crazy, made some love, and had a fight

Takin' this ride was the worst decision
Cut your family in two, like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
Your family won't be happy with your life
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
I don't know why you put me through this strife

Hit the road in the mornin', too early it felt
Checked on my arm and saw I had a welt
Well, my baby hits hard when the whiskey runs wild
Only time I love her is when her temper is mild
Stopped at Amarillo, ‘cause our car overheated
My baby said to me, “I don’t like the way I’m treated!
When you tell me you love me you're never serious!"
I said, "Baby, I love you, you're just delirious."

Takin’ this ride was the worst decision
Cut your family in two, like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I’m the knife
Your family won’t be happy with your life
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
When we get to Santa Fe you'll be my wife

Saw a sign, "Welcome to Santa Fe!",  filled us with joy 
Took a look at my girl, she sighed and played it coy
Took my eyes off the road just for a second
Then that light came, well it did beckon
Smashed my foot on the brakes, plowed into a truck
"Well," I said to my baby, "That's just our luck.
But don't worry we made it to Santa Fe!"
Too bad my baby's soul had flown away

Takin’ this ride was the worst decision
Cut your life short like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I’m the knife
Your family won’t be happy what I did to your life
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
I regret it all, what I did to your life

Child of Mine

Its so crazy
Everybody's having babies.

They're truly blessed 
Yes i must say
It seems someone is having a baby all day everyday

One of my own?
That's something I don't have
Although i did become pregnant long ago,
That's a thorn in my past
The joy i felt could never be described
When i had that miscarriage
O lord i cried and cried

Ever since then 
Its an emptiness I cant fill
And to think, women try to avoid that joy with one simple pill

It seems that women who don't deserve kids, want to only throw them away
But for that bundle of a blessing 
I pray every day 

I have dreams of having my own
Possessing my smile and looking into my own eyes
I dream of hearing that giggle
That would be the ultimate prize

There's nothing like your own legacy
Being able to prepare him or her for this life
I know things wouldn't be easy 
But that would be my never dimming light

I pray my day will come
Deep inside that's why i strive to live
To bring the world a piece of me
Pass down my spirit
I have so much nurturing to give

It seems as each year gets harder to accept that i haven't conceived
I'm starting think
Maybe God doesn't plan to make me a mommy to be.

My biggest fear is never having a child
Just that thought drives my imagination wild
But I put my faith in God 
I pray my dream comes true
O how i cant wait to meet the little "YOU"

Looking Backward

There is no going back
To those days of love, now past.
Though memory can take me there,
I miss your loving arms.

To those days of love, now past
My heartstrings stretch forever.
I miss your loving arms.
My future lies behind me.

My heartstrings stretch forever
To happy days of yore. 
My future lies behind me.
I pine the then be now.

To happy days of yore
When our love was young and new,
I pine the then be now
And I’m in your arms again.

When our love was young and new,
Though memory can take me there
And I’m in your arms again,
There is no going back.

WHAT'S CHRISTMAS WITHOUT PEACE

A smart boy asked his parents, who were busy shopping,
to take him to the nearest Santa and make his Christmas wish;
setting in Santa's lap he told him this,
" What's Christmas without peace...
when kids like me are still dying?
What's Christmas without peace...
when stars can't be clearly seen in a sky covered with ash? "


" These are very profound words
for a child who cares about people sharing
the same Christmas joy! " Santa told him smiling.
" Don't wishes come true for boys,
too? " He exclaimed with a boyish ingenuity,
" Of course, they do, child...in spite of tragedy! "
Santa assured him with the tenderest hug.
" Then why, children my age still die, instead of getting love?


" Close your gorgeous eyes, sweet boy and make that wish twice...
so that all may hear it!" Santa ordered the dreamy child,
who struggled to keep them closed as long as it took;  
then he slowly began wishing, " It's a wish for every kid alive:
orphans and sick ones, healthy and happy ones! " 
" Which images do you see when you peak and look? " 


" I see many children holding candles and singing for peace,
they sing in different languages...but love has a good reason to conquer
those who desire to keep Christmas in their homeland as I desire to keep it in mine! "
The happy boy said as he were part of that celebration under a brightly starlit sky,
" And what are they singing? " What's Christmas without peace! " His reply was.
That's the song you like them to sing...don't you? Santa exploded in jolly laughter.

Two Fools, Hand in Glove with Eachother

If I’m an honest to God down-and-out,
You’ve got too many occupations to count:
A comedian with no audience to laugh,
A scientist who can’t work out why half
The experiments just don’t seem to work,
A dedicated student always trying to shirk
The essays that are ‘pointless’, and at least once a day
Bemoaning being a bassist with no gigs to play.
My darling, petulant, annoying-ass Puck,
Are you finding yourself somewhat down on your luck?
The jack of all trades and the master of none?
That’s not quite true – you excel in one….
In making me happy.
In cutting through the bitter, cantankerous shell,
Bringing out what’s gentle and warm, and hell,
Even soppy (who knew that was in there at all?)
And you hold me so tight, and you hold me in thrall.
May the heat of your touch on my skin never cool:
You might play the clown, but you make me love’s fool.

Port of Call

Port of Call


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

with the breath of the ocean a caressing balm,
soothing pained memories away,
to the swaying of a solitary palm.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

feeling the brushing away of all past turmoil,
on a quest for solace, ever so hard to find,
yet comforted by the crashing of the waves,
as the tide cleanses all pain,
and leaves despair far, far behind.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

drenched in a sea-breeze of mist,
that hushes the ache of bygone moons,
tasting the salty tang on my lips,
as the burnished sun,
over the distant horizon,
swoons,

and dips.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

searching, ever searching,
for a slice of solitude,
as memory bids a final adieu,
reaching under the sea so vast,
and seeking comfort in the depths,
while embracing,
the tomorrows to come,
wishing that they be true.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

seeing my truths drown,
as they slip beneath the turquoise waters,

feeling my heart ablaze,
with a passion that rarely falters.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

yet knowing that I am home at long last,
wishing the waves would wash away,
the defences that once stood,
like an impregnable wall.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

I have found, at long last,

my final port of call.

Abide in the Light

You abide in the light
I’ll miss you…when you venture off at night 
Don’t forget me…
Don’t discard me…
Don’t leave me…   

Forgive me for drifting away from you… 

Please forgive me…
Please don’t ignore me…
Hear my pleas…don’t turn the other direction…
Run with me…into heaven’s light

I’ve given you my soul…
I’ve shared with you my melody
I’ve fed you until you were full…
I’ve healed you when you were under the weather…
I’ve tried to bring us back together

You hang on the rope of hope
I’ll rely on you…I’ll cling to you… 
You saved me from subsiding into the obscure abyss

Don’t reject me…
Don’t depart from me…
Don’t release me…

Respect me for who I’ve become
Please respect me…
Honor my presence 
Protect me from any sort of harm  
Is it in your nature to relieve my anguish? 

I’ve been driven away by my affliction 
I’ve set you free from Egypt…and lead you to the Promise Land 
Have you forgotten my affection? 
I’ve tried to empathize what you’re going through – I’ve gave you a helping hand
Don’t you understand? Will you ever understand? 

You abide in the light 
I’ll miss you…when you depart from my heart
Don’t forget me…
Don’t discard me…
Don’t mourn for me… 

Forgive me for wishing for your absence…
Please forgive me…
Please don’t give up on me…
Hear my side of the story… don’t turn the other direction…

I’m still training for perfection    

Run with me…until we arrive at home 
Hold my hand and we’ll take divine flight 
I’ve cherished you for so long
I’ve lead you to my home town – 
Do you remember where you and I belong?

I’ve given you my trust…
I’ve shared with you my dreams
You’re an apple to my eye

You were my angel of grace, promising concord –
Bestowing blessings upon me 
Your vitality never wears off…

You were my lamp – 
Glowing with serenity and elation
Tranquilizing my mind from despair and unease

I’ll never regret…meeting you that magnificent night 
I knew that that was love at first sight
The moment you stepped foot into the light

The Tome

There are books that come from many genre Some that create sorrow and painful scars Yet others where the author spells out love Where love is surely written in the stars There is a tome of emotions prepared Written by some great poets of the heart Each poem shows a certain eloquence A piece of feelings that’s sure to impart Some passages are of sadness and pain Others carries some lines of compassion All of these put inside a single book From the greatest of love to full passion This is an example of what exists A beautiful book that’s enjoyable Poets that write directly from the heart All of which is pure and sure loveable

into the gloaming

twinkle eyes twinkle eyes i see you 
stop hiding behind the shades i won’t hurt you
i’ll be good i’ll be kind just trust me you will see
i only wish to make you mine for all eternity

I know how to love i was trained by the best 
oh come now twinkle eyes and put me to the test.
our laughter is sweet it makes the honey flow
compassion is my best quality 
i believe in taking things slow

if into the gloaming is where you want to go
i’ll take your hand twinkle eyes your masculine shadow.

The First Time

For the first time,
I feel that life’s treating me right

Everyone’s talkin’ amongst themselves…

I’m sick ‘n tired of wastin’ time
I need to…train myself to become successful – 
Starting tonight.
My life has its ups ‘n downs…
How can I balance myself again?
How can I be more productive this week?
How much time does it take to make my life valuable?

Every now and then, 
I feel that there’s no way out of the cage

Everyone’s bringin’ up past recollections 

I’m willin’ to fight the good fight… but I feel like garbage…
My faith towards Him slowly decays away… 
How can I rebuild my strength again?
How can I reassure myself that I’m stronger than I realize? 
How much time does it take to accomplish all of my dreams? 

Every so often,
I feel that my family doesn’t love me

Do they still cherish me like hidden treasure?
Do they still love me beyond measure?

Everyone’s tellin’ me that I did a great job on my solo 

I don’t believe them entirely…but at least I got the audience’s attention  
My future is bright like the sun…
How can I make my dreams a reality?
Does God know the answer?
How much time does it take to taste a sprinkle of glory?

For the last time, 
I feel the need to reach the finish line

Everyone’s proud of me for trying my best 
And running with all of my effort
I’m willin’ to encourage myself to pass the test…
Despite my struggles, I’m doing fine  

My courage increases by the minute…
I outrun the competitive runners and I’m barely passing the test 

My cup is half full – I’m extremely grateful
For the first time, 
I feel that God has answered my prayers – 
LIFE IS SO. . . . WONDERFUL!

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.

FORLORN IN THE WIND

Torn in the complication,

My life's just a hallucination,

No place for love or infatuation,

Want to end it but am in hesitation.

 

Filled with frustration,

Can i ever cope up with this situation,

Facing seperation....nd way too long of condemnation,

Want to end it but am in hesitation.

 

Am i worth of no admiration,?

Wy am I undergoing so much humiliation?

Dere's no way its going to be a subject of satisfaction,

Want to end i but am in hesitation.

 

I dnt need redemption,

All i need is a mere reputation,

Am in confusion.....DO i need LOVE  or any other beautiful emotion?

Or maybe my only saviour is my SALVATION.

 

NO,NO.....WAIT,

Coz dis world is divided into factions,

And selfishness still has a little limitation,

Good ones still find prevalation,

ANd every cloud has no evil PERSONIFICATION.

 

Maybe ending my life is no solution to dis confusion,

Coz life's happy phase is finding initiation,

PERSEVERE,PERSEVERE nd PERSEVERE....coz life's beauty needs no introduction,

find a happy soul nearby nd turn ur gloomy life into a happy vacation.

 

At last i have no hesitation,

Now i know salvation could have been no solution,

Defeat the gloom wid all ur preparation,

Nd ur life is bound to undergo simplification.

 

Dere's some new sensation,

ND i hope it finds no termination,

BT i wont feel sad if it all ends.....coz life is a portfolio of colurs...nd dats d way it achieves its perfection,

Hapiness is best savoured only when in sadness it finds connection,

ND voth r served To u in d form of an insatiable collection

Why

Thoughts in my head,
Silhouettes passing by,
Cold tears of sadness I shed
In the soft bed I cry.

Your face reminds me of the past,
The failed future and the burdensome present we have.
Moments I thought would last,
Were all simply forbidden love.

Memories of you and happy times i remembered,
Regret and sadness to me it gave.
To you my life I surrendered,
This heart of mine became a slave.

Everything was happy and fine,
Our love was young and free,
Like a never ending bold line
Like the green flourishing tree.

Painting a smile was not so hard
Tears and loneliness just pass away.
All the 'I Love You's' and the valentine card
Are now shadows of the romantic day.

Then what has gone wrong my dear?
What did I do to make you upset?
Or something for you to shed a tear?
Perhaps something that made your cheeks wet?

Was I so insensitive?
Blind perhaps?
What could be your motive?
Was everything about us just a mishap?

'Do you love me?', I aked of you
'I don't know' was all your response.
Is this a sign that we are through?
Is this the end of our romance?

Everything happened in just a snap,
Seconds seemed like hours and months like years,
Memories of us together all became scrap
Remembering you makes my eyes wet with tears.

Tears not of joy but of sadness,
Sadness I wish would turn to death.
To eternally end my heart's incompleteness,
To eternally end my every breath.

Life without you is simply hell,
Our togetherness' cessation for me is a mystery
Sleepless nights and feelings of doubt I couldn't tell,
And innumerable tearstains in my diary.

You gave me reason to enjoy life,
You completed my everyday,
You ended my loneliness and strife,
You accepted me in every way.

Then why let go dear love?
Why now that everything is fine?
Couldn't we be forever inlove?
Couldn't we be forever fine?

She



A sweetly-scented, earthy rain-storm,
she came to me,

thunderously raging with raw emotion,
she came to me,

drenched in the essence of truth,
she came to me,

she touched a chord deep inside,
she strummed away all emptiness,

she came to me,

once...

she comes to me,

still...


a gentle presence filling my life,


she comes to me,


still,

a healing spirit soothing all inner strife.

Screaming in my head

I know that I'm loved,
I have a great family,
So why do I feel crushed?
It's beyond my sanity.

I don't know what is wrong with me,
I want the craziness to leave my head,
I'm the comedian to fill everyone with glee,
I have to fix it before I'm dead.

I stand on the stage of life,
No jokes just stress and fright,
I have only a little strife,
But I wanna cry most every night.

I am happy with my sis and children,
I don't want them to feel blamed,
My problems are all in my head and it is hurting,
It is me who should be ashamed.

Bi polar, schizophrenia, or just insanity,
Please bear with me I'm trying to get help,
I couldn't ask for a better life even in fantasy,
Without your love and support I don't know what I'd be dealt.

I love you please don't give up on me,
I'll try harder and strive to show my happy face,
I cannot live without you don't you see,
No one can ever take your place.

The quicksand that's sucking me under,
I'm holding out my hand to you,
My sickness does my mind plunder,
I'm on my knees trying to keep everything in view.

I'm blessed to have such support,
I'll work really hard to let myself resurface,
Thank you for caring enough to stay my  safe port,
I promise to retake my rightful place.

Our family I will repair,
I will strive to fix this up,
I will cause no more despair,
From this day forward I'll drink from a full cup.

My Hell

Daily I think of my missing three, 
Numerous questions haunting me.
Are they happy and well,
Or are they in agony and Hell?
Do they know how I love them still,
That them not being here is not my will?

Is it love or hate they feel for me? 
Never again my face do they want to see?
Do I cross their minds, even a little bit?
Or do they not think of me, not one wit?
I pray that they are happy and well,
I pray that they are not living my Hell.

Mason

I am human,
Born of a woman.
So happy to see the sunlight,
Pleased at the sight of moonlight.

Everything I met here,
Except from my younger ones.
Though life sometimes makes regret,
But I wish to live more.

I love berries,
I love juice.
Love to drink when I am thirsty,
Love to be daily full of food.

Everything that I met here,
I love to have to them.
Beautiful mansion, the flying jet.
The riches and other's men's respect.

I learnt that some men are dangerous,
So I wanna be secured.
I love to be counted among the beautiful ones,
And to hear my Heart saying well done.

I love to be loved by someone,
I love to be grouped among some people.
I love to share my pains with love ones,
I wanna believe I'm saved among some people.

I wanna believe in something,
Things that sweet my conscience.
I wanna be known with something,
That make feel that I'm the blessed.

I'm sometimes happy,
Don't know why things must sometimes go dotty.
Sometimes I feel like I'm flying,
Don't know why I sometimes see myself crawling.

I've control  over many things,
But not all if I may tell.
I've been happy about many deeds,
But there are some I deeply regrets.

I've been right to y'all,
But why are y'all now keep naming my wrongs.
I've received share from y'all,
I can now see different faces of rejection.

Two types of expression from the same face,
Why don't y'all remember my good deeds?
Why turneth thine face away?
Are these not those smiling cheeks?

Why did y'all love me as an angel?
Forgetting that I'm human being.
Expecting me to be always perfect,
Not expecting for once that my tongue should slip.

What are you doing to make me forgive myself?
The remembrance of death lies there.
My great grand parent are dead,
One day shall I be next.

Let me be happy about your love in my head,
To take my heart off my inevitable end.
To forget my unforgettable offence,
This is when I need you as my friend.

That I am human being,
The reason to be careful.
That's why you have to take core and deep thinking,
When there are people behind you shouting "hahoo"

The final destiny

As the plane takes off in the blue sky
I’m leaving my home and life behind
And I am going to meet the girl I love
And together a new future we will find

I am nervous going in a strange land
As the engine of the plane starts
But so excited to see her for the first time
And hug her and feel the beat of our hearts

We have waited so long for this day
Now its just distance by 13 hours of flight
And I feel like kid going to a candy shop
Knowing my dreams is coming true tonight

I like to hear her voice when she says
You are going to see just an ordinary girl
And I would tell her no way 
You are the most beautiful girl in the world

And she would laugh and you’re crazy
And she would make some funny emotes
And then will say please take care of yourself
And If it’s cold make sure to wear a thick coat

Yes she is a person like that
Taking care of me form so far away
And now just a few hours from now
Going to look in her eyes for the first time today

And I know I will just melt in her presents 
Just like the snow in the morning sun
And my heart will be fill love an emotions
As the joy of our new life has now began

And I could never return home again
And ever leave you behind
So if you want to live here or in New York
Doesn’t matter for our happiness we’ve already find

To walk, to play, to talk, to hold, to cook
Every little thing that I get to do with you
Will be timeless precious memories
To cherish our whole life through
 
And on the day that we get married
And we take our wedding vows together
Will protect, cherish and cover you
With my love from any kind of weather

For your love has made me complete
And I feel strong as the lion in the wild
And can’t wait to see the glow in your eyes
As you becomes pregnant with our first child

As you start to eat a lot and smiles
Saying do you think i look like a fatty
And I will kiss you on your sweet lips
And say you are always looking perfect to me

The plane has arrived and I walk out customs
And the most beautiful woman smiles at me
And when she holds me in her arms
My life has reach its final destiny

I Am Happy- A Snapshot

We've been entwined for hours, 
Wrapped together in careless sheets..
You look deep into my eyes and smile 
"What's your favourite colour?"
"Red" I answer your smile.
You kiss my nose..
And I feel so grateful.
After such confusion, loss, remorse and loneliness,
I think there's a chance 
That I have possibly,
Maybe,
Fallen in happy with your.....
Everything.

Saturday Rain in Johannesburg

Saturday Rain in Johannesburg…


…With sighs of torrential passion,
the heavens shower teardrops,

weeping with me,
as memories of you come cascading back,

skin on skin, ablaze,
moist kisses, fiery,
gentle whispers of undying love, murmured,

in another life, another time,

far removed from my present, a desolate state of despair,
wallowing in the grime.

…

The rain keeps falling,
each teardrop stinging my face,

tasting the salt on my lips,

I wonder, do you still remember the caresses of my fingertips,

between breathy confessions, and vows of eternal love,

before you left me, stranded on an island of solitude,

wounded as a wingless dove,

bereft of life,
stripped of all traces of fortitude

My Love Will Never Fade

Born as an infant in the dark cold world
We open our eyes and cry as we look at those we love all curled
Taking our first steps into you arm
We know that we live life without harm
Because mother when you kiss me you’re my special charm

Day by day I long for your love whether I tell you or not
God gave me only one shot 
And he hit you right on the dot
You are my everything yes that is true
But I do know the love I have for you is like God’s special glue
You and I have good times and bad times we fought through
But at the end of the day in your arms I flew

You are my sunrise and my sunset
Because together our voices make a duet
You are my north star
Because if I look in the sky you are not that far
You are my light
When I am lost in the darkness you shine ever so bright
You are my special mother
And I would never in a million years pick another

The times we had were something of a story
Because you and I worshiped in all of life’s glory
I never thought the physical part would end
But now that it has my soul is something I send
I can’t believe you are gone
Because I cry everyday before dawn

God loved you just as much as I
But I just wish I had more time to say goodbye
I know you are watching over me from up high
So I promise the tears I shed will be happy ones as I cry
I know we are close still just like peas and a pie

Now that you are with God
I know you are more than happy with a smile
But promise me you will pop in my dreams every once in awhile
I will live my life in your light
Each and every night
Just know mom every time “missing you” is played
I remember you always and my love for you will never fade

IMAGINATION HUES

Drops of sweats hovers my face..
As i walk ahead slowly through a phase..
In a whirlwind like the maze..
I find myself dreaming amaze...

Glued deeply buried on the ground...
I wonder how a melodious music sound...
I drum and twirl my fingers in round..
Fidgeting strings of triangles I found...

I fall back in a convergence of scenes..
Leaving away footprints that don't dim..
Beaming with meeknes of it seems..
Mimic the yonders and let eyes gleam..

Vibrantly shining in a spectrum of rainbows...
Vigorously rejoicing loud in the meadows.
Reflecting through vivid shapely shadows..
Amusing and beckoning, one will follow...

Lets stop it

Thats all, lets say enough,
To killing bitter phrases
No more it seems be wise
To look at shy less eyes

I have to leave for while
You shouldn’t ask me why,
It would be good for you,
You know I am loving you

I beg with broken heart,
Remember I am alive,
I don’t know if I can
Without you be same

Forgive me for my smiles
I am tired of all lies
Forgive me being loved
Admire his happy life 

Don’t tell about me
When he will touch your skin 
I know I don’t deserve
To win game called love

I wish you happy chance
I need to give my breath
To make my soul be free 
No sorrows, si la vie

You was so dear to my heart and its sad to say
But I will still think about you each and everyday
You took me in as your own 
And you did it all alone

and you don’t have to see this sad disgrace
I love you so much granny 
And I'm happy to say that you don’t have to go threw any more pain
God has let you loose from that that chain
That almost made you go Insane

A Town Made Of Happy

                 

When you’re feeling low and don’t know where to go.
   I know a place where love just grows and grows and grows.
A place called Sappy Mountain in the town of Get And Go.
    Troubles there just melt away like the morning snow.
Smiling faces greet you with the morning light.
    Happy songs are all they play morning noon and night.
They have a sign outside their town.
     This town they say was built by clowns.
There are funny looking cars of every size and shape.
    Houses painted candy colors make up this great escape.
It truly takes your breath away, it’s such an awesome place.
    A smile is all you ever see it’s painted on their face.
Of all the cities in the world this one takes the cake.
    It’s full of love and happiness and none of it is fake.
So if you’re ever down our way won’t you come on in.
    I’m sure you’ll love the stay at our Magic Inn.
Only happy people reside there, come but leave your care.
    No money here will be found only love that people share.
Two hugs and a handshake is the price you pay here for a meal.
    And with the tip it still adds up to quite an awesome deal. 
Come on down and bring a friend.
    For Happy is the way of life it’s not some passing trend.

HUG DOES THRILL

Straight black shiny hair
Oh it's what make you fair
Gently, I'll hold don't flare

Entwining my arms around your waist
Oh time! I don't want to waste
Please don't ever ever detest
All I want is to feel and be rest

Your warmth relax breath 
Along the hallow of my throat
Undeniably making my heart throb
Adding trembles that abodes

Don't release a squirm, just feel
Long before a dream but now real
Sigh and lean, do not chill
Isn't it this hug a wonderful thrill?

But your picture remains by my bedside
For your love I can never forget

If time heals all wounds
Than time is on my side
For one day I shall be allowed to rest
Than together we'll be forever side by side

Love is truthful

Love is kind

Love is honest at the best of times

Love is peaceful

Love is right

Love gives you meaning to go towards the light

Love is courage

Love is strength

Love keeps you warm threw the night

Love keeps you alive when you can't fight

Love is breathe

Love is life

Love makes you want to fly

Love keeps you in it's arms at night so you don't have to hold your pillow tight

Love is arms 

Love is heart

Love is the touch you know is right

Love is special

Love is divine

Come let me hold you in these arms of mine......

T's  the heart, that falls so deeply, that leave it love,  like snow upon a meadow.
Falling  softly  as tender touches , each falling snowflakes melts; finding it way into the hearts of the ones you love !    
For within the heart lye each snowflake, glinting with love. It's when you touch the heart of someone, you begin to see the  hidden snowflake that's glitters, went the warmth of love is felt!  
To embrace one's heart, is to seek with in the fallen snow. 
It's how you create the wonder of love, like a snow angel.
It's the magic of love, like the finishing touches that creates snowflakes!
Every one, is able to seek the heart of wonder. It's how we create a bond to each other's hearts!
Each snowflake is different but still a snowflake; just like our hearts!

In The Future Looking Back

In the future looking back,
You'll be happy to see
How far you've come
And where you are today,
So make the most of this now.

The Happy Poet

A happy Poet am I.
Full of love and laughter.
There's nothing I wouldn't do, for you.
To get what I am after.

To be with you, now and forever
To spend my life with you, forever.
To wake you with a kiss.
Never to miss, a life of bliss.


Take a walk to the park.
On the beach to wander.
Everywhere you go.
Beside you.
I  linger.

At the end of day.
Sunset drawing in, 
Must I go dear?
I know that I should.
But I feel that together.
Makes me happy, forever.

Walking home in the rain,
Forgot the umbrella again.
Singing and dancing in the rain.
Life, a happy refrain.
You and I together.

Concert For One

You ask me to come to one of your gigs 
Every Thursday over a pint at The Hop 
I politely decline 
Every Thursday 
You sat there dressed in plaid and denim 
Your lips curl over the glass 
Well I couldn’t possibly watch 
Them curl over a microphone 
In front of all those people 
I prefer a concert for one 
Sat in my backyard 
Dancing to songs of your travels 
With cigarette in hand, 
The only one listening 
Selfish I know 
But you make me that way

Rekindle Me

I feel like the candle flame
As it's about to die...
So... cold...
I shrink in on myself,
A used wick curling up
Blackened and lifeless-
Now suspended in
A haze of my own smoke
Like hallucinations,
I suddenly recall
How it felt to be warm-
Face pressed against
The fire in your chest,
Roar of its beat in my ear;
I tapped its rhythm
On your collarbone
With one finger, delighted
At how fast, how erratically
It sputters at my closeness;
You laughed,
Because you understood...
Now I close my eyes,
And with one finger, I
Tap the rhythm of 
Your heartbeat 
On my collarbone-
Maybe to recall
How your fire sputtered for me
Will keep me from guttering out
Before you can return to me-
Rekindle me-
Again...

The Funny Farm Revisited

 Well it’s getting close to that time again,
    When I’m not suppose to be happy and I’d better not grin.
Hiding is okay as long as you don’t make a sound,
    Pray like all get out that you don’t get found.
Well it freaks me out to say the least,
    One minute she’s happy the next she turns into a beast.
Someone said they got a pill for this kind of thing,
    I’ll give her a double dosage and hope it’s relief it brings.
If it don’t work on her I’ll try one of them pills,
     Just thinking about last month done brought on a bad ole chill.
I’ll just keep my mouth shut that’s the best thing I can do,
     I’ll just look at her and nod and pray I nod in the right direction too.
Here she comes with that sweetie pie look,
     The last time I saw that my goose was about to cook.
So if you guys don’t hear from me in the next few days,
     Know it’s been fun but she said right now I’ve got dues to pay.
I guess I’d better close, ouch hang on baby let me finish this line,
     Dat gummit woman now don’t hit me with that sign.
Well she didn’t break but one hand so I can still hunt and peck,
     She’s like that Dr. that turned into a monster I feel like I was in a wreck.
Going through the change doesn’t seem to bother her at all,
     Shoot I’m the one sporting bruises and having close calls.
Well that pill made her sleepy, 
      But her eyes are wide open and that’s down right creepy.
I guess I’d better close,
     And go change the cotton in my nose, night all!!!!!

Rain

I see the rain,
Dancing across the sidewalk,
Carefully placing each drop
One at a time,
They flow with each other,
Gracefully and in sync,
As a dance from the heavens
Praising the One who made them,
And as I watch them,
I become hypnotized,
Almost entranced,
By their beauty

For my song you are star

My words for you
And they are at morning
What you like
A cup
Of coffee
Or may you like
A tea
Have you then
Your breakfast
with smile
Pass your day time
with my song
May it a boost
At evening
May you get
A hint
How to date
Or may you stay with my song
To know that you are not alone
As my song adore you 
And for you my song
To cheer 
Your soul
 to find
The hidden secret
In heart
 prettiness of your soul
A garden of roses
In your heart
May you're in crowd
Grey and blue
But for my song
You are a star
So feel good
May you don't have
A cash
Or credit card
But for my song still
You are star
So feel good
No matter what
Or where
But I know in many ways
You are like me
And in your way
You are unique
So wear the rainbow
And put the rays of sun
 on your head
And feel good 
for my song
You are star
So feel good
And goodnight

my happy heart

there is no better love
but a happy heart
someone to share their love
and satisfy their own heart

day after day
your sweet voice calls my name
even in the month of may
you treat me the same

when the day came you left
my heart stayed a happy heart
it was better that you left
in that way you were smart

Documentation

I haven't written anything down because I have been too busy feeling it.

The love you planted so softly on me like a nice pair of lips.
 
I stopped writing because I didn't want to miss a second of the  main event.

The event of love is a special occasion that shouldn't be missed.

I bought my ticket and sat in the front row of your heart. 

I can't believe through the highs and the lows of our love there is still a 
flame to light up.

I could travel the globe but no one could ever encompass
 
the south, north, east or west of your spirit.

The jumping, stomping, dark haired goddess with the face of Pocahontas.

You are truly what my heart was missing. 

I have not documented all of the ways you make me smile.

when your body is planted on mines how even
our sweat combines and makes the perfect perfume. 

I haven't written in a long time simply because I have been 
consumed with loving you.

A Happy True Love Story of 2014

(Please click the green button below "Poet's Note About The Poem)"



This is the true love story of the year 2014
An Indian farmer, 25-year old Mukesh
A graduate in Mass Communications of *Popran village
Met 41-year-old Adriana Parel, an American Citizen
And a grandmother of two, on Face Book. 
Mukesh fell in love with Adriana and persisted.
Adriana flew down to India with words of caution
But she took just one sight of young Mukesh
Outside Airport to make that life changing decision.
And they were married in traditional marriage ceremony.
No villain, no adversities, just a simple love story
Ending well and everything is well in the end.

Today’s love, cynics might say and consider
As the mere infatuation with the idea of love
And the difference of culture or
That their differences might weigh their love down
Bur those who are in love or believes in it
For them here is a love story defying many borders.

                         +++
*The village Popran is in Haryana State of India*

***Adriana showed an astounding transformation in just a few months of her marriage. She now lives with Mukesh, and his family in Popran village in the Karnal District of Haryana. She takes care of daily chores in her home, like sweeping the mud floor, cooking on a traditional stove, washing vessels and taking care of her in-laws and husband. She also takes out time to work at the farm with her husband. And like any other woman in the village, she also spends a good part of her time making cake pats from cow dung.
Mukesh and Adriana are now expecting their first child. And, even though she loves her new life, Adriana wants to go back to her homeland so that she can be around her daughter and grandchildren as well, especially at this joyful time***.

If I, could move forward
If I, could stop looking back
If I, did not find it so awkward
If I, had the confidence I lack

The Night of Unleavened Bread

Matzos slip into their mouths
Voices project merrily...tonight is
The night of Unleavened Bread

Lamb and other delicious
Meats and veggies... satisfies our taste buds 
What a splendid night it is!

Wine's brewin' in our wine cups
The dinner table - creates pleasant talk 
During this meaningful night

There's moments of quietude 
When it comes to de-leavening our lives
But, there's moments of gladness

On this night of peacefulness
Cheesecake - a delightful treat to savor 
During this night of pure bliss

lovers day

The day has come
   Can we take this time to begin again?
All the old is no longer
      What ever that might be because I see and feel the love I first felt.
The glitter in your eyes and the butterflies in my stomach
Has returned because  you made this day about me and me about you.
       Let's rekindle the love we once felt for each other because
               Its Valentine's day.
   But let's not stop there. 
          Can it be Valentine's day everyday?
    Making our love first in our lives.
            Holding hands to make it through the daily struggles of life?

Kingdom of Sorrow

I’m happy on my own,
No people to contend.
I get to be myself alone,
No reason to pretend. 

Sometimes  it may get lonely,
But this I know is true;
My independence flourishes-
No anger to subdue.

You break my feelings daily,
You care not about my tears;
I see your attitude changing-
It’s heightening my fears.

The depression drowns my anger,
The resentment kills my voice.
I tried to do right by you-
But now I have made my choice.

My strength is getting weaker.
The Walls are falling down.
The pain keeps getting more intense;
Thorns where once there was a crown. 

My kingdom is retreating,
My horses start to flee,
I try again to call your name,
But all I hear is me. 

The gemstones are now worthless,
The Gold gets duller each day;
For the friends that used to care for me;
All I do is pray.

Once I was happy on my own,
There were no people to contend.
No crowds in which to hide my sorrow,
No reason to pretend.

There's A God Who Loves YOU

There’s A God Who Loves You! In spite of what the courts and what people tell you… There is a God, who’ll always love you! No matter how courts try their best to remove him… His son reaches out to you! And wants you to trust him! No matter what the sacrifice, or what the cost… His son died for you! On an old rugged cross! No matter what you’ve heard, or who you listened… There’s an everlasting life that you’re missin’! No matter how many times you’ve caused sin and shame… You can find 100 percent forgiveness in Jesus’ name! No matter how many times that people have failed you… There is a God in heaven, who will always love you! Won’t you take the time, with no more postponement? And seek forgiveness in his blood’s atonement? The time is now, the opportunity is certainly here! Wherever you may go… God is always near! By Jim Pemberton

God Knew Me Before I Was Born

God Knew Me Before I Was Born! God knew me, before I existed! He was there, before my name was listed! Before I was born, he had a divine plan! He was there, before I reached out my hand! Before I knew who I even was, or my name… His life for mine, way why his son came! Before I could put on my shoes and clothes… He had called me! It was I… That he chose! Before I was old enough to make up my own mind… He was there waiting! So patient and kind! Before I became an adult… I refused to believe! Whatever God offered... I didn’t want to receive! Before too long… I had my own family and home. But then family left me... And I was alone! Before God… I came, and cried and repented! The inside of my mind felt confused and tormented! Before I really knew what was actually going on… God reached inside and forgave me of past wrongs! Before the next day was coming about… I found a new love and peace throughout! Before God, I know that he’s changed me! I have found a new life for eternity! Won’t you come before God and accept him too? You’ll never know what he can do for YOU! By Jim Pemberton

Moment Of Our Lives

These moments we have that are ours to share,
Are those special ways to show how we care.
   All our thoughts and feelings we protect so well,
It's as if we were all living inside a shell.
   But with you my dear they always will be in plain sight,
You will always know this love we have is so right.
   Not ever any doubts will there ever be ,
As long as you are always and forever with me.
   Through the sad times and the good times you will find ,
How happy you are that I am yours and you are mine.
   Not many can say what I can so proudly say,
When I've awaken  each and all of my days.
   How grateful I am you have came into my life,
How happy I will be to have you as my wife.

Im Praying for You, My Love

Anger problems?
I knew you got angry alot,
and usually at a random thing or at a random time.
You would come at me out of nowhere
with angry words and accusations.
But i thought you just didnt trust me,
i thought you were just being jealous and mean.
Your outbursts,
i just thought thats how you were when you were really angry.
But it took one last freak out,
and your mom had enough.
She took you to the hospital and they offered to admit you right away.
They told you that you have a problem.
That your anger wasnt normal.
It caused random thoughts of someone doing you wrong,
and once the thought was in your head you believed it and got angry.
I never would have guessed.
I had no idea this whole time,
it was a sickness causing this.
So you admitted yourself,
right then and there.
No warning, no goodbye,
you just didnt come home.
Its killing me inside...
i know how much you hate to be alone,
and to be there in that place, facing this demon alone....
I cant stand the thought of it.
I wish i could have told you that im here.
Ill be here by your side no matter what it takes.
Ill help you through this, and anything else.
Ill be your support through any storm.
Baby, i know you can get better.
You can overcome this and live a happy life.
Our relationship can be better.
I cant wait until i can see you.
Im Praying for You, My Love.
I love you dearly,
and im hoping that from now on,
my poems will be happy love poems <3

Hope

Holy books says it all
You taught me how to crawl
This will never change
Never ends never fades
Dear God where you are?
Shattered piece of childish dreams
This will never change
Never ends never fades.

I can fight for all my life,
Not broken, not broken inside
Never be so frustrated,
Not going to commit suicide.

Fuc*ing faith will fall,
Mortals will stand tall
Hell and heaven are all the same
Live your life, don't die in vain

Only you and I can make 
A better world for tomorrow
Have faith in yourself
And wipe off the tears of sorrow

Make me scream, Make me cry
I'll never fail to try.
This night's has an end
No pain will remain

It Started With...

A kiss
So soft, so familiar.
Even after years,
I can't find any better.
One moment
Back, wrapped in your arms
And still, you're perfect.
My good luck charm.
I say,
"It's weird that you still hold me perfect."
Your reply,
"No one else ever fit."
But you left.
And I can, now, honestly say, "No regrets".
You've made your decisions and lived your life,
Just as I have done with mine.
So why is it now that you come back to me?
Right after I've found some kind of happy,
But still not the same happy you give,
But happy enough to live and let live,
To smile on a daily basis,
That's when you come and do this!
You pick everything up and turn it upside down,
Or maybe you flipped it downside to the sky,
And put the right side up.
Either way you put it, I'm stuck between him and you,
And you ask what I want, 
But honestly, I don't want to give either of you up.

We Watch With Tears In Our Eyes

tears;
the droplets of memories
both unwanted and loved,
they carry our strengths,
with glimpses of what we think we cannot do,
in a vision,
never tangible like the
bars we use to box ourselves,
we do so to keep the
memories out.
They obscure his watchful eyes,
so that what he doesn't see
are the clocks with no numbers,
and instead truth at twelve,
false at six.
In joy he sees the smiling plays
upon a persons face,
yet he doesnt identify
with the actors
as playing the role
assigned to them,
but instead the characters,
masterfully designed by the
thoughts and plans of harm
they wish to do;
to cause him to shut down.
To take the world around him
and squander his life;
he takes it
and those of the loved ones
around him.
The clock points at six.
In sorrow he forgets his love;
forgets the beauty that
he has been given to
change loved ones fortunes,
hes like a child at play,
whose love radiates,
filling the cold floor
andsteel bars of a 
playground left for time
with the orange hue of
wanted energy.
But his obscured eyes
look on the loss of love
and pity for the misfortune
given to him.
And with the bars he ruins more love,
creating the cycle of depression once more,
in another seemingly beautiful heart.
The clock points at twelve.
She comes into his life,
with the knowledge of love
given to her because
she accepted Him.
and she gives to him what
no one cared to give;
a love so unconditional,
so that his moments
in which he forgot himself,
and turn to scar those he loved
never changed her ways.
She was like an owl,
with her own watchful eyes
she watched upon another,
as to create balance upon his life.
And she had her own memory filled tears,
he never hesitated to return the love
he gave her.
And so the cycle of the clock ceased to exist
in the lives of two
so intertwined.
And time was never again a problem,
since the slept on
with watchful,
never tearful
eyes.

Free Fallin'

My desicion was made. I wouldn't allow myself to be controlled. If that makes me a rebel, then let it be. I'm a Rebel. At least I can Make my own choices now. I can love and care about others. "You are here by stripped from your wings." Then it was like someone had bound my wings and pushed me off a cliff. it felt like forever. til finally i reach the ground. When i hit, it felt like everybone in my wings had shattered. I had fallen. and It hurt so bad. but it was worth it.

Preface:  Written for my parents on their 50th wedding anniversary

Where the Smoke Goes 

I went to the place where the smoke goes, from all our blown out candles.
I found pounds of Cape Cod beach sand there, broken kites and long lost sandals.
Over eighteen thousand days flown by since your promise of “I do”,
wandered all around 
this place and found, 
more reasons to love you. 

I climbed a forgotten apple tree, so I could easily survey.
I saw mountains made of sawdust, valleys of bills you had to pay.
Lumber stacked from projects past, knick-knacks from church bazaars.
I reminisced, 
just how much I missed, 
finding old chewed up cigars.
 
I held my breath and dove into the lake made from our tears.
Baptized again, saw family and friends that I’ve missed over the years.
They brought me all the breaths you’ve held, fifty years worth put together,
and showed me the boat 
you kept afloat, 
through rough seas and stormy weather.
 
I found rooms of things you went without, to give us what we needed,
and realized then, how much we’ve reaped, from the garden that you seeded.
I saw every time we counted on you, stacked higher than the sun,
I heard loved ones say, 
the times you turned us away, 
added up to less than one.
 
They showed me five happy childhoods, filled with loving memories,
and read five prayers for fifty more, Happy Anniversaries.
I couldn’t find a way to show how much, we love and thank you both,
for promising “I do”, 
and yes, you two, 
made damn good upon your oath.
 
The smell of homemade biscuits slowly cooking filled the air,
but awoke before I tasted one, in my Adirondack chair.
I left the place where the smoke goes, from our blown out candle wishes,
but I’ll come back each time, 
I need to find,
the treasures my soul misses.

Mr and Mrs White

The man called Mr. White
get's in his steel grey lexus 
and drives away
every morning
at 7:15 
sharp
at
7:20 am
Mrs. White
departs the house
in her starched and ironed pant suit
The Whites are seperate all day long
Typing, meeting, drinking coffee
doing those important things
that make the world
go round about
but at 9pm
they
both arrive
Mr. White and Mrs. White
Throw themselves on their bed
without removing their shoes! Imagine that
They jump on their bed with their
dirty, shiny, important shoes
until they collapse
and then
they
give eachother a kiss goodnight...................................................................

Happy birthday.

  Happy birthday I want to say,
  to you my dear,
  on sunday your special day.
 I would love to send you a card,
  yellow roses too.
 Though that is not possible,
  we both know.
  I can not ring you,
  say what I want to say,
  so I am saying it this way.
  I hope you have a wonderful day,
   you deserve it in every way.
  I hope your wishes come true.
   There is some thing else I want,
  to say to you.
  Good luck God bless in all you do.
  Always thinking of you.
  Happy birthday to you .xxxxx

Summer's Love

Sun kissed skin glows in the bright rays
Sitting on the green grass on a warm summer’s day
You look at me
You only smile for a second and mumble the words “you’re beautiful”
A chuckle bursts between us as you look up at the big blue sky
You close your eyes and then open them again
As you tilt your head and breathe in summer’s air

You look at me
You look straight into my eyes and manage to blurt out “wow”
I close my bright green eyes playfully almost in a flirtatious way to make you suffer
I smile with no words to say
I smile and open my eyes to the world
I bring my view to our hands, looking down at your hand in mine

You look at me
As a flashback crosses my mind 
You hold the hand that used to tremble, the hand that shook too many goodbyes
As I sit there trying not to remember painful thoughts and bad memories
You come in close and hug me tight

I didn’t believe love existed
I didn’t want to be believe in finding true love because I didn’t believe I would ever find one
I didn’t think that I could ever be so happy
Looking down at our hands and feeling your touch I somehow felt so comfortable
And when you looked into my eyes I felt a feeling I never felt before 
I knew in that instant it had to be the feeling of someone falling in love 

You look at me
I look at you
I know I am in love
I know I found the one
The one who can make me smile on a warm summer’s day under the sun

Memories

All the hard things that I went through,
I did it all for you.
You may have made me cry or weep,
But when happy oh I leap.

I thought I gave you every little thing,
Almost as valuable as your gold ring.
I may not be just like her,
But with every whim I try to go further.

But with every step my heart aches,
As if every thing were all fakes.
As if lion's claws in my heart rakes,
The whole of my heart he takes. 

Closing my eyes so I don't see,
The happy you without me.
I know I should really be happy,
For the person loved by thee. 

And so as I end this heartfelt rhyme,
I'd like to ask you one last time.
Do you know how much I love you?
And how much I hope that you love me too...

Arrival

Wait a minute, in my dream last night
I met the guy who fit just right
Vivid memory coming through
Of me finally meeting you

Golden purple dreamy haze
Moments caught inside your gaze
Touches, kisses, magic, whole
In this dream filled time we stole 

Laughing, grinning, soft caresses
Holding hearts and healing stresses
Exploring childlike what we bring
Playful Fingers wandering 

I've held your hand inside my mind
Now it's warmth is real this time
I've seen your face and your eyes staring 
And now I feel their gentle caring

Your taste your touch your look and smell 
Tantalizing treat, all is well 
Electric senses, heart pounds like thunder 
Kiss your body with gentle wonder

Legs and arms like tree roots twisted
Sweet sensations, bodies misted
Grinning wide with tickled feet
Outrageously perfect and complete

Wishing just isn't enough anymore

I wish love was enough.
I thought it was enough, how stupid could I be? 
But what I thought was love is now just a distant memory.
One that got the best of me.
 
It took away my thoughts, my days, and my nights.
Hell, a lot of the time it even took away my apitite.
I lost focus, sleep, and a good grip on the real world.
I was blinded from everything and protected by nothing.
For a while I was stupid enough to believe the lies my heart had told.
 
I thought your hugs said it all,
but now that I can recall, your kiss tasted like diaster.
Now that I've tamed my heart, my emotions are no longer my master.
I had always thought we'd be together one day in perfect harmony,
I realize now that all your words were just lies you fed to me.
 
I thought I was your 'Ride or Die' but now you call me a whore,
I don't even know who you are anymore.
I've been fed lie after lie- I'll call you out on every one, I'm not shy.
So you say you love me, what's your name again?
Why should I believe you, your credbility is a zero out of ten.
 
Don't act like I should feel sorry for you, because I don't.
If I'm the only thing in your pathetic life going right,
shouldn't you try to keep me happy with all your might?
I used to be blinded by the thought of forever, but now you've opened my eyes
    up to see, I don't need you for me to be happy with me.
 
When we fought and I caved, I'd come back and cry "I'm sorry babe, I love you"
Now that I've finally caught you in your lies, you want to say "I'm sorry baby and I love you too"
I used to be blinded by your role,
but I pray for you now because sometimes wishing isn't enough to save a soul.
 
What I thought was love got the better part of me.
But now I'm glad that my heart has made me see
You messed up and I hope you know it; no one will ever love you like I thought I did.
Not even your own kid.
 
Yeah, I know my words hurt, but yours did too.
You lied everytime you said "I love you boo".
At least I'm the one here who has always confessed or told the truth,
I'm so sick of you now I just want to knock out your every single tooth.
 
I used to be blinded by love, 
But now that I'm not, I'm as peaceful as a dove.
I hope these words hurt, and if they do it means I've done my job right.
I'm okay about losing you without a fight.
And to be honest? I'll sleep better from now on at night.

Bountiful Love

There’s love forming next to me…
Sometimes it gets me thinking…
What is it like to be loved?
Maybe it’s the most precious rose in the garden
Maybe it’s like the sun ascending…
Maybe it’s the cocoon releasing a butterfly

There’s love brewing here and there…
Sometimes it catches my eye…
When will I experience it?
Maybe it would be the best part of my life?
Maybe it would be nourishing to my heart?
Maybe it would be the stars gleaming in the night?

It’s an afternoon...that feels pleasant 
Love, merriness and joyfulness sprouting beautifully  
It’s a somewhat unsettling moment…
With me around… soaking in remorse that breaks me 

There’s love succumbing in my heart…
But, my passion is slowly sinking…
What if love isn’t worth my time?
Maybe it’s the weeds that choke the vegetation 
Maybe it’s like the moon darkening…
Maybe it’s the bird facing his first flight…

It’s shocking at first,
But it gives young lovers 
The chance to venture
Into the bright side
Of bountiful  love 

Give me a taste
Of bountiful love

A Hollow Shell

a hollow shell
of tangled synapses
sparked into gradual madness
which drowns out the truths of the day
as the mind reeks of the rotten sad moments
that swirl in the rancid soup of forgotten dreams
dreams that once traced a gentle path of innocence
dreams that reached for pure love’s tender touch
dreams now paralysed but once vivaciously alive
what became of those fresh dreams and hopes
as they lie mustily on dusty bookshelves
torn into shreds by time’s fine scimitar
devoid of the touch of raw passion
when all that remains of love is
a hollow shell

Cherish What You Have

all of the people in this world have the problem of not knowing what they have until it's gone. 
The few people that understand this and have not made the mistake have lived happy 
lives.Is's hard for someone to understand their emotions and what they feel and it is the 
downfall of many. when you have someone you love and that makes you happy don't screw 
it up by cheating or changing the way you act because the way you act is the reason the 
person likes you in the first place. You need to cherish what you have because it can kill you 
in the end. If your going out with someone you really like say it to them some of the time. 
Tell them that you care about them. Show them that they are the only one for you.Don't be 
a moron and get jealous if she hangs out with her other friends some of the time just be 
there for them. If you have something good cherish it as if it were a gift not a right because 
it can be taken away in a heart beat. Love is one thing in this world that has the power to 
wound deeply and it cant be taken back. You need to be careful and enjoy what you have 
and make damn sure you don't hurt the person there is no excuse to cheat, lie, or break up 
with someone just because you want to go out with someone else have a very damn good 
reason for it. Don't break up with them in a note or a text tell them to their face and explain 
to them why. when you break up with them you need to be nice and don't be a total b&tch to 
them. Like I said love can wound in places that cant heal so when you do find someone 
cherish them like a golden treasure sent from heaven.

Why Mom

Mom I'm sorry no one showed you love
I'm dispointed in you
I try so hard to show you that I care
that you don't need all those men 
to make your life happy 
But you don't ever seem to listen
I do and give you everything I have
To make you happy 
But all I ever get in return is pain
I rember those lonely nights where I have nite mares
You was never there
I never got to have a mothers day with you
Because you was never  a round
I had to learn and do so many things on my own
I Love You 
But you don't love me
Why Mom.

What is Blood?

 A sharp blade of an emotional mess
The tears of other creatures from horrible success
Our hearts under the soil of an angel's wings that are blessed
And the redness always leaks from hearts fading more and more less

Sometimes it bursts and sometimes it hides
More Importantly the pain rises inside
From living the happy color to flowing out the word why
The truth becomes amazing to happy smiles that dies

Melting in the shadows to living very strong
Hearts like the music of pain living long
Something deep inside that's farther then gone
Tombstones defines the moments of rest in peace songs

Blood is anything that your hearts and tears can agree on.

To Her, From Me

You’re such a beauty and always willing
Your gaze itself is oh so giving
Without a mask you came to see
What rightfully would and should always be

And here we stand our fingers locked
How can the world look on so shocked?
To know that you found happiness
Wouldn’t you know, it’s priceless.

A Love Letter 2

I was waiting on a modem and had a trusted friend send you the last email. 
All confusion has left me. 
I feel so different, and such sweet serenity, solance at times, and waves of tears as thinking of the way people as you must feel about me. Finally by faith, perserverence I am healed and I am not dancing in public at any writing site.
I have written my sentiments and I am going back home to the foot hills that I am from. The elders in the next years are going to have what they call a house raisin' John! That is where all the neighbors get together and bring stuff, and when they raise the frame, its sort of celebrating, everyone is happy and they do not stop until it is done. 
They want me home John. I never fit in anywhere in the world, only there and its been a very rough road. I love you. This much I do know.
People that knew me before, think that I need MORE medication, because they do not know what has happened to me. It is sad in many ways, I cannot be myself around people that doubt me and I am really getting pretty because I am happy now. If some day you could ever forgive me from your heart for the estranged things I said out of context and for being mean, decitful and jeleous, I hope you can find that in your heart?
Will you know I love you when I say nothing? Will you fade away? Will you never know who I am.?
I honestly can lone those foot hills the rest of my life. I will love you still through the silent nights, the winds cease and the shadows leave, for more and more I find a friend in Jesus.
I don't want hurt anymore, and the times we had, the seasons we beared, was not nice, not as love should be. Yet I am so full of life at the possibility of my love that I kept so securely hidden in innocence, to one day reveal my truth of my love to one in my life would be so tender and gentle to me. I'll be walking the dirt roads, where noone has ever walked beside me or held my hand.
I've seen enough of this world and it hurts me but love is not dirty back where I'll reside. Loning through life, your love will always be there, you said you would be there in spirit and I belive that so much. I just cannot fit in with people baby,  and I was hurt so deeply that after many years, I couldn't reveal how I truly felt becuse I built a barrier so no one would hurt me. You helped me know love, and forever I will love you. Love shouldn't be dirty at all.
I just want to go home.

unfurled

All I want to do 
Is hold you in my arms and claim you
Mind body and soul
For you are the half 
To my whole

I want you to be my one and only girl
The one I call my own 
the one that has my heart
And the keeper of my soul
The one that watches my love unfurl
All I know is that im feeling light headed
And at peace
And like the part of me that was missing
Is back and feeling whole

All this time we were waiting for each other
All this time I was waiting for you 
We have all these words 
And we write them for each other
My words for you 
And yours for me
And the expression of love 
That has yet to be

Pretty Little Singing Bird

Pretty little singing bird
Pretty as can be!
Singing, the sweetest melody
Serenading me
Pretty little singing bird
You make my heart sing!
Pretty little singing bird
Will you be my friend?
With my love of writing 
And your sweetest songs
We can make the world
A beautiful place
With our own personal, unique style
Pretty little singing bird
Don’t fly away!
Did I scare you?
Won’t you stay?
Be sure to tell your animal friends
To come visit me soon!
I love you
Pretty little singing bird
You are, my sweetest friend!

Your Smile

It’s not what I want, It’s what I need
It’s not who I love, It’s who loves me
I can’t control every little thing
So you’ll just have to bear with me

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

Life isn’t always easy
I know 
But we can make it through 
Together
It’s true
And I need you by my side 
And you know you need me too
So just stay with me 
And we’ll show the world what we can do

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

You think you are too strong
And when life comes along
I just need you to believe
That you can lean on me
And I’ll return the favor 
When the time comes along 

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

The New Me

When your eyes I see
I catch a reflection of the new me
when I see your expression
it's as if God has taught me a life-long lesson.

what is this lesson?
You wanna know?
It's that I remain
beside the brightest glow

the light that you are
has left me scarred
with happiness and protection
as you have taught me this lesson

In the mirror
I take another look
you have opened my life's book
because for the first time
I can call you mine

The look on your face
shows there isn't a race
I've found where I belong
so I'll be with you life-long.

Let us play PRETEND

Let's play the game "PRETEND" 
Like I'm happy for you and this ain't the end
Pretend i could breathe without you in my arms,
Pretend my hand isn't cold without the touch of your palms... 
 
Let's play "Pretend" even for years 
Pretend what's flowing from my eyes are happy tears
Cause you said the famous line: "nothing will change" 
But we both know that everything else lays to turn and change...
 
Now Let me play the fool's part 
Pretend this is just a quiet happy part 
Cause you're touching my hand saying: "I'll be back"
but you turned around, walking away and not looking back
 
Let's play again this game "Pretend" 
Pretend that what we felt won't last anyway, 
"My world won't fall apart' , "we're better off this way" 
We'll Pretend I don't want you to stay... let's just play pretend...

In sight of my love

To see your eyes can blind me
From me it's what I can see
I could be blinded by your light
But it brings me back to sight

And I smile at your thought
For all the joy you've brought
So happy when I see you
Don't know what I would go through

Just to be there by your side
Our love it cannot hide
Would walk miles of broken glass
Will always be mindful of my sass

From friends to being lovers
And being under covers
Try never hurting others
It's hard as one discovers

As happy as I am
No love can be a sham
Yes I can be a ham
Done here yes I am

Blessed Breeze

Something feels wrong –
the atmosphere
 Feels dry 
upon my skin
I remember 
the summertime 
and 
its blessed breeze 
– it kept
On flowing…
blowing…
bestowing…
jovial love 
for the renewal 
of your heart… 
Once bleeding…
Beating…
 from deep within
Accept me 
For who I am…
Accept me…
Do you ever ponder
About the good times
We’ve shared?
Have you
Erased it
From your mind 
Forever? 
I wish 
You could rise 
like the sun 
when the dawn 
comes rolling in 
The fog 
Surrounds us… 
With gloominess
There’s no need
To feel my stress
Remain
Stress-free
For eternity 
Dread 
Is caressing 
your soul
Don’t let it
DEVOUR YOU.
YOUR.
Life. 
Is. 
Meaningful. 
Believe me…
Please…
Keep it 
at ease…
Cast away the sorrow
Flick it off
into space
I’ll be there
To run the race
With you 
So wipe away 
The blue liquid…
blinding your eyes
DON’T.
Be. 
Afraid…
Don’t be burdened
By the shame
Sway with me
In the wind…
Where peace
Grows on and on and on…
Forever – 
Until the demise
Of the dawn 
Let the clouds
Drift away 
And sleep without
Disturbance… 
And don’t forget
To pray for 
The blessed breeze
Let me help you
Track down the worries
That try to 
BREAK.
YOU.
Don’t let it get to you
No matter what

Your body is warm
Your eyes glisten 
And reflect
Fascinating light. 
Shimmering
With 
All 
Of
Its
Might. 
Something feels right…
AT LAST!

Why I Am Who I Am

I'm thankful for my mom and dad,
And the happy childhood that I had.
We didn't have so many toys
But there were lots of other joys.

Dad was a farmer planting seeds,
To provide us with our daily needs.
Mom planted too, the seeds of love,
Germinating from up above.

She taught us how to love each other
And have respect for one another.
We've kept those feelings still today,
Though childhood days are far away.

We went to church and Sunday School
Where we were taught the Golden Rule.
So many times our mama cried,
If we were bad or if we lied.

She didn't teach without regard 
That growing up is truly hard.
We loved her and wanted to be
As gentle and as kind as she.

My brothers never made me cry,
The four of them older than I.
My gentle dad taught them to be
Protectors of my sis and me.

A child who's raised with loving care
Is a happy child beyond compare.
She'll want to share the love she knew
And teach it to her children too.

What comes around will go around
And other happy children found.
And when a better world is had,
It all started with my mom and dad.

A Lonely Heart Via Jewell Partee

I am sitting all alone-tonight, weary, sad and blue.

Thinkin of the past my dear, and how I'm missing you,

You know I always loved you, and thought we'd never part.

I hope that you are happy now, with your new found friend,

And that he will treat you kindly, and your joy will never end.

I will try to go through life somehow and do the best I can.

But I know that I will always be a very lonely man.

I tried to make you happy for I loved you from the start.

But all I have to show, is a broken, bleeding heart.

So go ahead and have your fun, I'll always love you true,

And wile your life is filled with joy, remember mine is blue.

Mental Love

My mental love for you is stronger than a hug,
And when I think of you I drink a burning drug.
My brains are very fried for holding you inside,
And so I fizz a lot although I touch you not.

I'm happy when you're near, to see you move and walk,
And happy when I hear you sing and laugh and talk.
And then, when you depart, although I'm sad at heart,
Because I love you so, I wish you joy to go.

Has Jesus Changed Or Is It Us


Has Jesus Changed? Or Is It Us? I often hear of the “newest fashion.” Perhaps I’m one that’s “old fashioned?” Even at church, there’s a push for “contemporary.” Throughout the building, and the sanctuary. I suppose many want to keep up with “the times.” It’s the way of reaching the hearts and minds. I wonder; “has Jesus changed?” “Or is it we?” “Are we walking in Christ?” “Are we truly free?” I’m not going to worry about keeping up with the rest… I’m giving my life to Jesus And Ill try to do my best! I want to give him my love, and my attention! I’ll let others worry about their own direction! Just a simple faith in Christ is what I’ll count on! Christ is always someone that I can depend on! You stick with new ideas and current fashions! I think I’m going to love Jesus, with a compassion! He’s all that I need, and someone that I’m proud of! As long as I have him... Everything else I need less of! Does Jesus change? No! He’s the same as ever before! His promises and words of life I always need more! I thank and bless Jesus! And the power of his name! With him in my life! Things will never be the same! By Jim Pemberton

A Purpose

You are my ray of sunshine  through those days of Gloom,
A glimsp of your smile  hoping to be  with  you very soon.
  I keep your heart with mine safe and protected I gaurd it all the time,
If you'll keep my heart with you safe and protected We will be just fine.
  With my prayers  I watch over you keeping you from any hurt or sarrows,
Making sure your world is what you wanted  today and all of your tommorrows..
  It is in the joy I bring you that that makes me whole and with a purpose in life,
Knowing in my heart that god has chose you my  Darling Angel to be my loving wife.
  My Dreams are so beautiful because you are in my heart and soul ,
Life with out you would not be something I would  never want to know.

My Life

The path I took  I did not  choose
but  mother said that I would lose

For the boy I loved she did not like
so she made me take another path

I was just sixteen and a happy girl
 knew very little of the outside world

So when my mother spoke to me
I listened to what she said  you see

A man came by and shattered my world
said to mom I'm going to marry that girl

Mom and this fellow  they both had a plan
ten days later had me married to this man

Always so lonely for the true love I had lost
my children grew up not knowing the cost

The tears that I shed when they couldn't see
still yearning for my love that never could to be

But now I am happy and have no more strife
and waiting for another to come into my life

Trying To Get Love

First off let me tell you how wonderful you are,
Let me tell you if I was lost in space you would be my north star.
If you became sad we would cruise around in my car,
I would do anything to keep you happy except getting you drunk at the bar.

So now as I flow I want to know how you feel,
I want you to feel me as your own man of steel.
Someone who would protect you by any means even if he had to kill,
Someone who would provide by any means but he's not going to steal.

Me and you can be happy together and that's what I know,
The worse thing you can do is tell me no.
Give me a chance to take you to paradise cause that's where it's at,
Happiness comes from the heart and that's where I want you at.

I'm trying my best because you know the old call,
It's better to love and lose than to never had loved at all.
But if we get to that point I'm not going to lose you,
Cause I feel you were destined to be my boo.

Though I have been acting weird you would've sworn I was smoking pot,
Man I spent an hour and half thinking in that parking lot.
I'm only trying to be real I don't want you to think I'm not,
So what do you say we go head and give "us" a shot.

Back to the Beginning

Things are different now
We're back at the beginning
Begging people for Starbucks
Hour long parking lot goodbyes
Freezing out in the cold
Sunday dinners at my house
Watching movies on the couch
We're back to this
but it doesn't mean were weaker
our love is stronger
our thoughts are stronger
our conversations are as best friends
We made it once before 
We can do it again

In My Perfect World...

I wake up happy everyday,
Always have something nice to say;

Live on a ranch with horses galore,
And always have room for just one more;

I can go riding whenever I want,
The theme of my life is “Nonchalant”;

I never have to worry about being late,
Life is about me, everything else can wait;

My house is always clean, maybe magically so,
It leaves more time for snuggling with my beau;

And I don’t hate going to my work,
Cause my wonderful boss is never a jerk;

I go home happy at the end of the day,
Always have time to laugh and play;

I love just being my husband’s wife,
Man this sure would be the life!

Dear Reggie

i'm sorry to say, you used to be the warmth of my heart.. now i sit here apologizing to myself cause i've realized my wrong.. sitting at the house, crying to myself cause i knew we'd never have a happy home! but see, I let you downsize me, play me, & prove my insecurities right.. I refuse to let you lower my self esteem another night.. I see since we've been over, your luck has kinda dropped.. your confidence used to be up top.. but i've noticed that change . . Listen reggie, I know you feel stupid.. you left me for her, she left you for him & he left her cause it wasn't real.. I'd be a lie to sit here & say i miss you. .& i'd be a double lie to say I'm still "IN" love with you; cause see, you never know what you have until its gone, but now; i've found a happy home; with someone who gives me more smiles than tears. . things have really changed in these 2 years; I'm sorry reggie... NO, i'm happy Reggie.. cause now you're just a memory tucked away with the other things i've lost..!

I Don't Know Why

I don't know why I'm madly in love with 
you.
I feel your love but break you heart.
I'm so happy but now feel bad.
Is it because I make you mad? 

Sometimes, I don't know why love is 
ruthless.
Today we're both happy but the following 
days
We fight each other like we're worst 
enemies.
I don't know why but our love is always 
like this.

I don't know why I feel damn blue.
Is it because I make you upset? 
Or, remind you of your past mistakes? 
Why do I have to hurt you if my love is 
true? 

My love, I don't know how to make things 
right
Or what I need to do to heal your broken 
heart.
One thing I'm sure is that I never give up
Until every beat of my heart stops.

I ask myself many times, 
Are we really meant for each other? 
I don't know why or how we find each 
other.
Perhaps, our love will last forever.

Love's Ghost

wind howling and silent whistling as if a lover whispering softly in the prince's ears 
as he stares longing at the moon, his eyes glazing over as he sees the ghost of his 
bride  stare back at him with its silver glow. He smiles softly, remembering her scent 
and the feel of her soft red rings of hair sprawled across his white linen pillows. 

He remembers her laugh as he would tickle her insides, and feel her warmth drip over his hand into his palm. Her squeal as he blew his hot, steamy breath on her neck and began nibbling on the warm and heated skin that was exposed-the rest hidden by the ballgown that was clothing her...sadly....

He growled in frustration when his fingers of his left hand traveled to her back and 
met the small buttons of her corset-the tearing of fabric and pleasureable screams 
fill the chamber and it is her turn to please him...

her fingers find their way under his vest, his shirt, tickling his stomach...tracing the 
skin and following the path down to his...following the happy trail downwards. 
Stopping at the top of his trousers. She grinned wildly when he growled, biting her 
earlobe and she giggled madly when he wriggled his finger inside her, her hips 
bucked and her legs wrapped around his waist....

the moon was bright outside that night...as it is now as the prince watches it, 
waiting for his lover-bride to return to him...

but knowing full well that she is gone, and her loving memories and lustful events in 
this very chamber are the only things that fill him with the desire to wake each 
morning...he feels her hands trickle down his stomach and swirl around his belly 
button, the hairs of his happy trail stand up as his  member bulges in his shorts...

he feels the need to dump ice down them, but without the heat, there would be no 
memories, sadly, its all he has of his lover-bride. He sighs, turning away from the 
window and laying down on the duvet that was to be shared between them, her 
scent still lingers on the pillows and in the sheets...

he buries himself in them both...pleasured just by that....

She is not Me

I thought I had you out my head.
Memories of us keep coming back I wish they were dead....
Then there you were.
Seem to be happy as ever with her.

Marriage plans are on the way.
You remind me that is suppose to be me back in the day.
I see it in your eyes
Years of us so many cries and laughs

You say she makes you happy but can she take away your pain like me.
She makes you feel expected but can she make you complete
Always there but can you talk to her like me
A closing chapter in your lyfe but is she the one to make your lyfe complete.

I see your number on my ID
Over dinner you wish she was me.
Close our eyes, kiss, we have the strongest chemistry.
Reality hit you, she isn't me

Insignificant Matters

To write a poem of which make a person change
is not so insignificant and strange
Without those people things will always be the same
then their would be the blaming game
I write this poem to the Insignificant out their
because they do not deserve the bad stare

To write a poem of which make a person change
is not so insignificant and strange
Without those people we would not be guessing
people would just plane stressing
I do understand how feeling are
because I do stare into the star

To write a poem of which make a person change
is not so insignificant and strange
Without those people we could not be our selves
people would just give up and leave things on shelves
I do think people that is insignificant are life batter
because everyone in life is not insignificant they all matter

Cold Comfort

I meet you, and your everything I need,
So ****ing perfect; the man of my dreams.
You have a woman, so we are just friends;
But do you know we can't live in pretend?

She lies to you and hurts you, so you eventually leave.
Greatest day of my life because you came to me.
I'm so happy all the time; always smiling,
But then you go back to her and leave me dying.

And now I can't eat, can't sleep; for thoughts of you with her.
And no matter what I do you won't take my lure.
So now your happy all the time and I'm miserable at best.
How can I settle for anyone less?

You once made a promise that if you were to ever leave,
The first one you would look up would be me.
So now this promise is my comfort on lonely nights;
Cold comfort it is, since I have lost the fight.

I dream of the day when you will be mine,
When my happiness returns and everything is fine.
Even though I'm deluding myself with this,
It's all I have left along with the memory of your kiss.

     A Little Voice
Walked Into My Heart’s Aisle
Right Up The Middle
While In The Midst of All My Trials

Heavy With Darkness
I Wanted To Rest My Eyes
But The Voice Said,
Talitha Cu’mi  (Rise)
(Mark 5: 41)

  … and Let Your Prayers Climb
To Amazing Grace Sublime …

… of  Love …  Joy and Peace
Long-Suffering and Being Kind
Try To Do Good … and Be Meek & Mild
Have Full Faith … and Self-Control Will Bind

You Do These Things
and You Will Shine …   
- so – 

  Shine – Little MoonBee –  Shine
Shine … and Show Peace of Mind
Shine … While There’s Still Time
Shine … So Others Can Find …

        … His Light

    So Here I Am
A Bit More Past My Prime
Some Days Are Cherries
Some Days; Lemons and Limes

I’m Awake Now
and Washed Away World’s Grime
Made Sense of Life
Thru Reason and Rhyme  

And … That Is Why I’m
Doing More Than Mimic & Mime …
- to – Shine

    A Good Life
Is Love, Laughter & Living Right
And Thanking GOD
For All HIS Gifts & Delights

Yet Folks Are Still …
Searching For HIS Sign
‘and This Little Light of Mine
I’m Gonna Let It Shine! …’  
_______________________

and I Can Shine
Thru Day or Darkest Night
I’m Not Afraid of Worldly-Frights
…  …  I Walk With Angels In Flight!

  O’  Hallelujah In The Heights!
Look, A Child of Light!

… People Are Tired
Of Hypocrisy & Hype
And Discouraged …

So Where To Look?
What People, Place or Site?
Or Who To Believe?
‘Cause Trust Is Like A Kite

‘Cause  Some Tunnels & Some Pipes
Are Only Dead-End,  Bad-Lit-Lights
(2 Cor. 11: 14, 15)

Folks Need To See The Difference In Type
 and What Real Light Looks Like!

The Beauty of God's Love

I will never
 fully comprehend.
The beauty of God’s love
that I have within!

From where I was,
 to where I am today…
I praise him! More than
 words can say.

I shall give him all
 honor, glory and praise.
And be obedient to him,
  all of my days!

He’s more precious to me
 than ever before,
His presence in me—
I need so much more!

His marvelous love,
 shall bless me to the end…
For this, I say, “Hallelujah”, 
“Glory to God!” and “Amen!”

By Jim Pemberton
