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

About , Those Angel Eyes

About , Those Angel Eyes

Silently basking in your soft and gentle light
  living deep within your natural glow
Your precious lips tell all a man needs to know 
  as heaven you cast into the starlight night 


That night across the room I first saw those loving eyes
  there hope cast into my soul winning your hand and heart
Thoughts of bliss and life that should never see us part
  I swore an oath to win you should it take a thousand tries


By your loving side, softly resting in your gentle shade
  stars faded to your light as the moon sought your love
Angels dancing in rhythm singing glory from far above
  pale against steamy nights and the hot love we made
  

Your soul and spirit were to seed my desperate cries 
  for your loving kisses and touch to ever so die for
Love sent me play for , yes to even beg much more 
  for paradise resting in the light of those angel eyes

Myself, Armed Only With A Dying Flame

Myself, Armed Only With A Dying Flame


Dark travels in such a long life
early days of hungering strife
A child born to fight for it
tasting ton of salt in every spit

  
Lost on pathways that breathe my aches
Prod me restless as I sever the chase
Between day and night and promises I made
To myself, armed only with a dying flame


Days sinking past like a slow tide
no softness, that one could abide
As years sent life into a dark spin
easy came toughness, pain and sin


I have seen more than I ever could
Branches of bitterness carved deeply in wood  
Wandering eyes dismissed them as facades of a man
Who fell victim to the ride as the years fell down

  
Is there saving grace if I stop at none
I may have foreseen it all but I doubted I’d come
To terms with myself and make me turn around
From the edge of this cliff and fade away void of sound 

  
Then came love trying its very best
softness, weakness in every test
Blade drawn to parry each thrust
to live on never daring to trust

  
Swiftly gone like a bygone air
I may be nothing more than despair’s heir
Constricted by premises that haunt every corner
Shutting my eyes will mean absolute surrender

  
A weak moment, hell bore on down
life melted, each day a new frown
Love had been accepted with grace
she left without a path to trace

  
Sad night , the fight no great cause
clocks stopped, universe hit pause
Time yielded no forgiving reprieve
love lost, nothing , nothing to retrieve

  
I was again left to remain
I have but myself to blame
When the rain comes to ease the pain
I know I’ll be whispering your name

Wise Men Still Seek Him Today

W-hen the fullness of time had come, Jesus was born behind an Inn in a cave-like stable.
I-n the Inn there was no room for the Son of God, no room for the Saviour of men.
S-tar was shining so bright above the stable for the shepherds to find their way to Him.
E-ven angels proclaimed His birth to those shepherds "Unto you is born this day."
 
M-anger is where Mary and Joseph first laid him.  It was filled with hay.
E-very animal there must have known that their Creator had come that day. 
N-o one knew the depth of love God had, to give His Son to dwell among men.
 
S-ame star guided three kings from the Orient, who studied the stars and heavens.
T-hese wise men from the East came saying "Where is He that is born King"
I-n their hands they brought him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrr.
L-ike these three wise men, wise men still seek him today! 
L-ove is the reason that God sent His only Begotton Son into the world to save us.
 
S-eeking for you and me, yes God was seeking for us because we had left Him.
E-veryone, yes, all we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone to his own way.
E-ach one has to make his on decision to follow Him or not to follow Him.
K-ing, born to be a King. King of the ages. King of the past. King of the future.

H-eaven, He came from Heaven to earth to show us the right way.
I-niquity, the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
M-elody, He gives us a sweet melody, we sing many songs of praise to Him.
 
T-ree, A Christmas tree, the love that Jesus had for us, to die on a tree.
O-nly one life and how soon it passes. Only in life can we accept His Love.
D-eliverance, He came from Heaven to preach deliverance to the captives.
A-cknowlege Him and accept Him. Behold now is the accepted time.
Y-ou, Yes, this Christmas Love was for You.  Will You accept this love?

For Brian Strands Christmas Love contest.

The Last Gold Leaf

The last gold leaf hangs on the bough;
Summer is just a mem'ry now.
You, too, have gone, my golden friend;
Our summer days came to an end.

We said goodbye; our chapter closed.
 How I will miss you no one knows.
 On eagle wings you split the skies;
Your spirit soared. You had to fly.

My earthbound soul will bear its grief
Severed from you on mortal reef;
But returning from yonder shore,
Your love in waves will wash me o'er.

You've gone before, my trusted love;
I wait behind, your mourning dove;
Yet, from across the great divide
Your voice to me in dreams confides.

No, I think not that dreams they are;
T is communion of the near with far.
On such sweet songs I stake my claim
To know and love you once again.

Shining beautiful

Hot sexy beautiful awakening 
Rising out from the ashes 
Alone breathing silently in thoughts
an amazing dream begins to shine

I felt the sun with her gentle fingers
softly touching with her light 
Stepping outside yawning, birds of all kinds 
whistling in choir 
Looking across the mountains
felt warm weaving love 
Gently brushing softly
within a warm sweet gentle, kissing breeze

Looking down through the valley
sweeping out towards, the great Atlantic sea
So many beautiful colors in blossom
Looking towards the sky, white mother of pearl clouds
dancing softly across vision
Her color a Heavenly baby blue

At that moment in time, searching 
inside wonderful thoughts
They were sweetly kissing you
far away in a distant paradise
Always and forever golden 
treading these sands
To walk hand in hand with you
sweet angel of love
Warm are the footprints that treads 
Softly landing on the deepest sands

Entering the heart
through the eyes of a soul
Captured in this vision
from inside out 
A picture beautiful dream
sweetly smiles on you love

Pearl Dreams of Rare Love

Break these chains that bind
holding in the deep ovens
blazing a fire for love. 

Smiling midday moon
dressed in a baby blue sky
with sparsely scattered clouds dot.

White mother of pearl
their silver lining treasure
held soft beautiful warm babe.

In her finger beams 
a light touching inside thoughts
sitting posed at three o’clock.

The moon just pops out
in kissing a golden sun  
white ivory pearls smiling.

Within daylight thoughts 
sweetly I pray in sunlight
shining warm all over you. 

Deep ocean salted
with the bluest warmest waves
luster smiles sunshine color.

The magic tear drop
forms the silver lining bright
and cries for ivory pearls.

Alchemic water 
wondrous most blue, dark and rare
lies love in Salt of the Earth.

Mermaids caress hope
encouraging happiness
makes all the more magical.

Pearl chain links in place
Neptune commands do it now 
with finest gold most smiling.

Bathed best and brightest
white ivory pearls ready
for their concatenation.

Neptune’s grandeur finds
all sea creatures in awe now
abounds pearl dreams of rare love.

Pearl Dreams of Rare Love
14 linked all so precious
from the ocean’s heart and soul.

Birth, in a Quiet Room

“Well,” She asked; her eyes wide. Beads of hot sweat glistening on her brow like miniature 
crystal suns. Her angst was palpable. “What is it!”
     The air was still. There were no words. Just the sound of bodies breathing in – and 
holding.
     “Congratulations.” He held out his arms, handing the mother, her baby, “You have a son.”
     The moment shone like glass in the center of the heavens – pure and eternal.
     It was redemption from every wrong thing she’d ever done. 
     It was the shining eyes of God smiling onto her exhausted face; lighting it with hope.    
     It was the only place there was – the only time, the only space. 
     It was the only feeling that existed. 
     They were the only two incarnate souls in the room; on the planet, and in the universe.
     This was her child –
     her son.
     And she was his mother.

     (there are no words for such things. suddenly, I feel like an intruder. there are too many 
eyes, words and moments here. so it is here, I take my leave; leaving this mother and the 
only soul in her universe to their perfect moment. they will have many more moments in this 
lifetime; but none as sacred, as human, or as eternal as the first look from life to life; 
mother to child; heaven to earth, as the very first. None.)
     
“It’s a boy.” she whispered. Her throat a crumbling tunnel; stunned, but not really. Like 
she’d known it all along. “My baby boy…” She smiled into his ancient, brand-new face; 
tracing his delicate cheek with the back of her finger. “He’s perfect.” 
     She ran her palm along the bottom of his soft, miraculous foot, and laughed. “Look at 
your feet – they’re huge!”
     And as she wiped the tears with the heel of her shaking hand – smearing what was left of 
her mascara - she looked in to his, as close to heaven as one can get, eyes, and said, “Hi.
I’m your mama.” He smiled at her. He knew. He’d known it all along. “And I’ll love you 
forever…”
     The world closed its shades then. Leaving the sacred to its history; the moment to 
eternity; and their universe to its quiet, little room.
     


*Inspired by Deborah's, You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby, contest; and every mother 
who has graced this sacred room.

FOR RACHAEL

Oh sky look down on this earth of gray,
Something dreadful on the horizon looms.
There is no black and no white today,
Laws exist but justice is doomed.

Morality is labeled religion,
And must be separated from state,
Whose own religion is political correctness
And determining God's fate.

Oh heaven rain down on us,
Ae are tasting your tears.
Yes we've become that bad,
Confirming your fears,

That what has been done ,
Is being done again,
Those lessons taught,
Coming to naught.

Judges and laws make it legal,
To be rid of your innocent babes,
Under a symbol of the eagle, 
God's loving justice betrayed.

Racheal you cry the tears,
That now only heaven supplies,
Because ours have dried,
In the dust of our alibies.

Excuses and lies are linked,
As you and I know well,
The truth is all but extinct.
Truth is foreign to hell.

Oh heaven, look down on this world of gray.   
Something dreadful is watching and looms.
Is there nothing left but to watch and pray,
While Rachael wails by the dumpster tombs?

Deepest Beauty

This morning woke up golden smiling 
headed into town on the car
coming down from the mountain
standing tallest in this small town
Driving up the hill top to the church 
such a sight greeted my eyes as the sun
it shone so very warm deep in such beauty
lighting the center was the holy crucifix 
I blessed myself beholding such a vision
as it looked like the holy spirit shining down
straight from the steeple felt this warm forgiving
fingers touching deep glowing in loves light
Hope all love can ever do is wish
one day you will see me in bliss 
inside Heaven opens it's wings 
I will greet you with the heart off
very deep undeniable true 
pure love so complete with trust one gift
that will forever inside of me 
It will sing in happiness rejoicing
sweetly singing songbirds a song forever 
always in the finest of tunes touching beats




I drew a style to honor such beauty beginning with nine syllables a silver lining cloud 8/7/8/9/now waves higher 10/11/12 gates of Heaven 12/12
singing in the highest note 11/10/9/8/7 finding comfort soothing rising the tune 8/9 sing in her clouded mist 9/9/10/11/12 love forever remains beautiful to the day you die my tune smiling

Nights So Love-locked In Your Arms

Nights So Love-locked In Your Arms



Nights love-locked into your arms
breathing in all of your charms
A spell cast to set love ablaze
we lost into epic, romantic haze

You gave its greatest gift, bliss
thanking heaven I did not miss
The sweetest ever enduring kiss
in my dreams I often reminisce 

Rested within your lover's trust
heart's deepest desire, a must
Songs that sang us both asleep
memories we shall forever keep

Memories flood out this the best
love surviving each and every test!


Robert J. Lindley, 09-24-2014

In Memory Of Lucilla

In Memory Of Lucilla



Lucilla, we were all fortunate to have you in our lives for a little while
Having the pleasure to read the warmest words coming from your loving soul
Spreading your kindness to all of us which made us all smile
Now Jesus has another place for you up in heaven where the angels go

We will forever honor in your memory your legacy that we will never let go
Grateful to have met such wonderful person that God created on earth that brightened our days
Believing that you will be reading our poetry still, through heaven’s windows
Connecting with our hearts, future comments to one another we all will make

Jesus, we know heaven’s aura just got much brighter with Lucilla by your side
We can imagine her loving smile as she journeyed toward heaven’s gates
Another beautiful angel joined heaven the day she died   
Leaving the world with her legacy, reflections of her loving grace

We will always keep you in our hearts Lucilla.
God bless you 
Rest In Peace Sweetheart
Your heart will go on and on in our memories of you…..
Love Poetrysoup Family….

Heaven or Hell

Made my choice
I always wear 
the blessed Bennedict cross
scared of the Devil himself
for my soul protection

I saw the faces twisted in agony 
mouths open screaming arms out
pleading with love to be saved
inside a moving mass of pain in Hell

I walked in the burning darkness 
suffering pains a zombie for my sins 
a blind existence inside one shell
I had no one other than family 
to call upon as friends
 
Seeing suffering tortured souls 
what they done to me 
Trusted to easily 
used and stole from in my charity 

Born under the wolf moon 
always watching in the shadows
a mountain climber by birthright 
Howling into a cold loneliness one fight
with the heavens inside at war 

Brought to my knees in the all forgiving face 
of God cured of cancer one miracle 
I know destiny again 
coming out from arising sun
I bow humble and meek
I will be stronger for living 
knowing where to place my trust

Smiling always with friends
because I see now love
It is you who makes 
each and every single world go around

I walk now towards your light
forgiving my past
Ready to face this big bad world again
only now I am stronger seeing hope
always praying for you love
No redemption in Hell
it just keeps getting worse

The Boatman's Song 6/ Many

The Boatman’s Song 6/Many

Indra again tried to convince Urveshi

But, here in heaven, Urveshi
Even the flowers are born, never to fade and die 
Unlike the humans on earth, who hardly gets a
Chance to bloom fully and smile

One day on earth, you would find Urveshi, 
You no longer remain the same
And there would be no time for you, to repent then
But today, you have all the time to think and rethink on it 

I am giving you sometime, Urveshi
As you are my most dear and beloved 
Among all the Apsaras of heaven
You dwell in my mind and soul, like the most precious
Among all, my own bodies heart
You think and rethink on your desire
To go or not to go to earth  
To listen the songs of the boatman 
Whom you are missing so much 

Urveshi, you are the most beautiful 
And the most charming Apsara of heaven
Gifted with extraordinary heavenly powers 
But your visit to earth 
May diminish or even finish your heavenly powers

If you ever go close and touch the boatman
Even for a moment to praise his songs
This would end your blessings of heaven and
You may not be able to come back to heaven

Inner Conflict of Urveshi

Cautioned by Indra, Urveshi pondered and pondered
To which way she should go?
Should she hear the voice of her heart
Or follow the instructions of her mind
Her heart was crying to meet the unseen boatman
And her ears were longing to listen 
The heart stolen melodies of the boatman
Floating in the air on earth and echoing even in heaven

She felt that her very existence was incomplete
Without the songs of the boatman 
And without meeting that unseen dweller of her heart 


Perhaps her beauty was formed 
By the blessings of God
So that, one day she may find the other half of her part

But then her mind intervened, while she was 
Listening the voice of her heart
And asked her, can she afford to bear the loss
Of the glory of her name and fame
Which has brought her laurels, crowns and applauses
Can she forgo that she rule the hearts of everyone in heaven
And above all,  the heaven has given her the sublime gift of 
Evergreen Youth

Ravindra                                                 to continue…

Kanpur   India 9th January 2010  
* Apsara (A Nymph dancer of heaven in the court of Indra as per Hindu Mythology
* Indra (The Lord of Heaven as per Hindu mythology

I'm my Daddy Made Over

Dedicated to my Dad Jerry W. Niday 3/20/1952 - 6/18/2013


I am who I am because of him
He’s the reason for my son’s name
He gave me my courage & my strength
To stand tall even when standing wasn’t easy
Stand for the ones who can’t
To think and fend for myself
I’m my Daddy made over

Taught me to fight back 
To never back down
How to pick myself back up
When I’ve been knocked down
Fight for what I believe
I’m my Daddy made over

He gave me my stubbornness 
Gave me my pride
Gave me my temper
Taught me not to take crap
To speak my mind no matter who
Work for what I want
I’m my Daddy made over

How to keep my emotions in check
How to handle large amounts of pain
When in trouble he always had my back
He knew how my mind worked better than anyone
I got it from him
I’m my Daddy made over

Even though he’s gone
I’ll stand and continue on 
I may stumble I may fall 
May even get hurt along the way
But I’ll pick myself back up
I’ll dust myself off and stand tall
I’m honored and proud to say
I’m my Daddy made over

I love rain

I love rain

It's a month now into spring
And still the rain pours down
Hey, is it ever going to end
There's many here that frown
They want the sunny weather
That will come soon enought
But right now, I'm enjoying it
Rain, I love the stuff.

Next week we're off on holiday
Now it really does rain there
And I'll love very bit of it
As it soaks up everywhere
To hear it's rhythm on the roof
It makes me feel so grand
Though many think that I am strange
They just don't understand

We don't get much rain in WA
So when it comes,  for me
It makes me so excited
I guess it's how i be
So keep that rain a coming down
Let me feel it's soft, wet touch
I don't know what is wrong with me
But I love rain so much.

I Need Your Help Daddy

I’m tired
I’m Physically and Emotionally tired
I don’t want to be the strong one anymore
I can’t this time
I don’t know what to do Daddy
I need your help down here

I can’t get back in control of my emotions 
I’m having a hard time dealing with your absence
I’m having a hard time standing by myself
I need your help Daddy

I’m broken and lost without you Daddy
I need your will to want to carry on
I need your strength to over come this
I need your strength to stay standing
Your courage to fight back again
I need your help 

Please Daddy I’m at a loss
How am I suppose to do this
I need your guidance 
I need you to guide me back
To whom I was before
I need your help Daddy
I need your help

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!

FATAL ATTRACTION

FATAL ATTRACTION
-------------------------
His lucent light illumines her eyes
His face outshines the sun
His ethereal beauty unveils the skies
Her vibrant vision swiftly succumbs

Her silenced tongue, his intimate touch
His intangible hands sliding/slithering
Spiraling down with a gentle glide
Her body cold and shivering 

His fiery eyes ignite a flame
Her attention he gains as she stares
Their lips entwine, his blissful rapture
Devours her heart from cares

Encapsulated, she can't escape
He clutches her in his arms
Her safe haven, her wedded love
His pearl preserved from harm

Her beating heart, a decelerate speed
Her aperture devoid of breath
His succulent waters drown her tongue
Compelling her closer to death

Solitary seclusion, her world in diffusion
Subverts her mind, subtracts her understanding
He gains her trust, thrusting utter confusion
Rest assuring her of a safe landing

She drowns herself to ceaseless sleep
In his grasp from detouring distractions
At her beauteous site, he rejoices and weeps
Absorbed in her FATAL ATTRACTION

My Father

I miss you dad every single day
The wonderful Times I remember 
Are the times we spent together going 
To dinner and church
The times I will cherish always on this earth
Your gentle ways and smiles and hugs
Made Life worthwhile for this is true
Forever you are missed in my heart and soul
But the forever is Heaven and you are there basking
In the Light of the Lord
I miss you dad and loved you so much 
But eternity is yours to no longer hurt
Cancer is what took you far too soon
I am always remembering your hugs and 
I loved you so much too.
Eternity is there for you now and forever
Remember I love you and Kisses from here
to you in the forever they call Heaven from earth

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

An Epic Battle With A Simple Question

A beautiful heart pines from afar. To parallel freedom, we choose our master. In Love, the Dragon and Unicorn are! Celestial winged heart beats faster, Over mountain and ocean meet polar eyes. To parallel freedom, we choose our master. Embarking from sun brewed and moonshine skies Two alien races, in war, collide. Over mountain and ocean meet polar eyes. All brothers' swords raise, marching with pride. Sisters of heaven let feathers fly. Two alien races, in war, collide. The angered clouds rain blood from the sky. A new path finally found. Sisters of heaven let feathers fly. Brothers' swords low now to the ground. A beautiful heart pines from afar. A new path finally found. In Love, the Dragon and Unicorn are! In universe Out bound energy Where are we when we die?

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

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.

Our Love Ascends to Heaven






Heaven awaits til our last waltz amongst the wind, mimicking that of yesterdays...(Sigh) Nature applauds as we continue in harmony; never ceasing til the last tear. Dust we form... transcending to Heaven

Silent Nights

The night held a cool northern breeze
Windows opened, the curtains fluttering in the air
I listened to her breathing, feeling her soul rise and fall
The heat of the night clung to me like her scent on my fingers
The silence was overwhelming
For the love I felt
I gazed out the window at all the stars in the sky
Thinking to myself in silence
I have a lovely star right here by my side

the hitchcock thriller

Some love too little, some love too long,
some they answer the riddle but fail to move on
some laugh and  others cry
when truest feelings have been denied
Some do the act with a show of tears,
surrendering everything showing their fears
And some without a sigh;
they just let their pride die
For some men kill the things they love, 
power given from up above
Yet each man does deny.
power from heaven they devise

Some kill love when in their youth,
some kill with abuse
And some when they grow old;
in the end the scam unfolds
Some smother with the hand of greed,
turning away from the hand of need
Because of lust for gold;
the way of love had turned old
The evil use their tongue because,
of vengence to discover
It takes love where it’s cold
and evil thought it mutters

But men who kill the girl they love,
and claim a passion from heaven above
have a story to be heard; 
lets not listen to one word
Some do it with a callous look
with a  wisdom from the good book
Some with a bitter word;
and with some with passion never heard,
The tyrant does it with his fist,
and serial killer with his list
The weak man with a sword.
a genious that was bored

Pal

Bob had been a lonely man ever since
His wife of fifty years had passed.
“Lord, let me join her.” he would pray.
“Let this day be my last.”

Each day, he went to the cemetery,
Just a short walk down the street.
After their talk, he would water her flowers
And hear passers-by whisper, “How sweet.”

One gray and misty morning,
He had hoped for sunnier skies
To plant fall bloomers at her graveside;
But, there, to his surprise…

Stood an old dog beside her stone;
Thin and dirty, but he struck a handsome pose.
He whined as Bob approached, as if to say,
“I could use a friend, you know.”

He sat calmly as Bob planted flowers,
Carefully sniffing each one Bob put in place.
Then, after the last one was planted,
He sniffed it; then turned and licked Bob’s face.

Bob smiled. “I had a dog when I was young…
Pal…he was a mighty good one too.
So, if you don’t mind old fella,
That’s what I’ll call you.”

Pal may have been an old dog,
But he was smart and handsome in his way;
So they made a deal, Bob would give him a meal
And a bath, if he decided to stay.

Pal loved his bath, then rolled in the grass.
He slept on a blanket in the den.
In the night, he dragged it next to Bob’s bed. 
He intended to be Bob’s best friend.

Pal was such a good dog, housebroken too;
Never made a mess or got in trouble.
He knew about newspapers, slippers and Frisbees;
And when Bob called, he ‘d come on the double.

Yes, Pal gave Bob’s life new purpose.
A special bond of friendship was cast.
And never again did Bob pray, 
“Lord, let this day be my last.”

For twelve years, the very best of friends,
Together night and day;
And so it was, until one night,
Bob quietly passed away.

The next morning, an old woman,
Tears welling in her sad and lonely eyes,
Brought flowers to her husband’s grave;
But there, to her surprise….

Stood an old dog beside the stone, 
Thin an dirty, but he struck a handsome pose.
He whined as she approached, as if to say,
“I could use a friend, you know.”

He sat calmly as she took old flowers
And put fresh ones in their place. 
He carefully sniffed the fresh ones,
Then turned and licked her face.

She smiled.  “I had a dog when I was young...
a good one too.  His name was Pal.”

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

The Spirit of Christmas, Dover, Arkansas

In our little Arkansas Dover town, we never clown around, about the sacrifice
Christmas is about Christ, and his great love, which suffices 

We live and let live, to our charities we give, for in heaven above
It's all about Love, refining one's self, to enjoy in Dove, who is love

We put down the mind of strife, we celebrate Christ's birth
The sacrifice, `tis about life, and knowing it’s worth

Increasing our unction, never to wane, the Lamb's fame
In public we still pray, at our functions we still say, “in the Name”

In celebration of Love's life, we give up, all of our means
No hazing, it's amazing, all over town, Nativity scenes

To suffices our worship, the special day is necessary
Signs of heaven, Love's leaven, the Babe, and mother Mary

The Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, some don't want to get even close, (or near)
For they fear, the special day of love's cheer, unto Christ, so dear

Have a very, very, merry, Christmas, Devonshire, to heaven for sure, and to all at Soup
Now year is close to over, don't be a rover, please visit Dover, “old Moses love scop”

No Heaven Without You

The end of my life the beginning of my death
I shall start to slowly inhale my final breath

Fast forwarding memories race through my mind
There is one in particular that I’m trying to find

Is it of the hottest night or the brightest day?
I really don’t know how could I possibly say

White capped waves to snow capped peaks
As I start to exhale I feel so tired and weak

Funny how everything has started moving so slow
As my mind races to learn what it shall never know

Suddenly everything ceases as clouds fill my eyes
For I have frozen in the memory of you and I 

Nothing but darkness here at the end of the race
As my final breath of air softly kisses your face

As I travel through the darkness I feel no fear
I’m lost in the taste from the salt of your tear

They say eternity is no more than an equation of time
Consequences of our life heaven or hell shall define 

There is one truthful fact regarding my fate
Our Lord Jesus Christ will meet me at the gate

But I won’t go in that’s something I could never do
There is no heaven for me until I walk in with you

I’ll sit down right there just outside of the gate
I’m certain for you the Lord will let me wait

I know you’ll be mad because I waited so long
Sweetheart you are the message inside of my song

And the message my song shall forever send
It could only be heaven if I have my friend

Gift of a friend

I remember meeting you,
I was young girl lost,
You reached your hand and showed me the entrance to twilight,
Between heaven and earth,
We dances on the crystal water, 
While the fish swam beneath us in circles, 
You taught me the language of the fairies and how to dance with black wolves,
We howled to the autumn moon,
While running through the forbidden woods
You gave me the key to life,
We soared with the angelic angels into the infinite sky,
 Reaching the stars they showed us the path to bliss, 
Swirling into the galaxy we united into one, 
Swings on vines through the jungle
Eating dinner with the lion king,
And listened to the story of Rama and Sita
But one day you fell into darkness and I chased you into the depts of space,
Reaching my hand you grabbed it,
So let us enter twilight once more between heaven and earth.

The Boatman's Song 5/ Many

The Boatman’s Song                                      5/Many

Where one very rarely finds love, hopes and joy in life
Sometimes, even the noblest souls on earth
Have suffered tortures and pains
Even some have sacrificed their lives in agonies and pains
So that others may see that beam of light

Think again Urveshi think
The ecstasies of the joys and thrills
You have witnessed in the pleasures of
Your dance, music and dwellings 
Which no humans can even think of 
Would be lost for ever and for ever
And you will also miss the most 
Prominent among all
The blessings of heaven to keep you young
And beautiful, without aging for ever and for ever

The charms of youth which you are enjoying here
Would no longer be there on earth
Aging and wrinkles, sorrows and worries would 
Evaporate slowly, the glow of your skin and charms
Time would also erode slowly the heart capturing 
Beauty of your enchanting eyes and the youthful beauty
Of your rising and falling bosoms
Slowly very slowly your dance steps would miss
The youthful rhythms of your legs
And more slowly your songs will miss 
The melody of your tongue and voice

You would also see that your fans here and there 
And dear ones too would fly 
With the passing of time on earth
Leaving you alone without any one to adore 
And no one to praise and to throw even a 
Lovely glance on a beauty on decline

The glory of your name and fame
Would get lost with the passing of time
And even the most close to your heart too 
Would not stand to console and support you
In the hours of your need and time

Can you imagine Urveshi, such a life?
And such an end of your rejuvenating beauty
And an end of your glorious 
Youthful performances of heaven
In the hands of time and mortality on earth,

Here in Heaven you are the queen of
Everyone’s heart
Your ravishing beauty and heavenly youth
And the melody of your songs and dance
Would remain young and evergreen
For ever and for ever
Without ever experiencing, what is an old age
Pains, sufferings and the agonies of departing
From your most dear, near and beloved ones
Which often kills the human hearts
Making them weeping and rolling in tears

Love Is My Heaven

~“Tis torture, and not mercy. Heaven is here
Where Juliet lives, and every cat and dog
And little mouse, every unworthy thing,
Live here in heaven and may look on her,
But Romeo may not."
- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, 3.3



~Blind am I to be of love? Here be mortal eyes, seeing with mine heart. Whereupon earth, I behold her at all times. There in deep pools, from pebble tossed, the rippling flow of her hair. There, where lies the dew upon the buds. Her moist red lips awaiting my favor. In the courtyard fountain's purl, tis the beauty of her laughter. All about me is her visage, from waking morn, to deep twilight. Even the moon does look upon me. Gently caressing my face and does kiss me with her light. Blind to love I cannot be. Not when her love is my world, my eyes, my heart, my very being.~

The Boatmans Song 2

The Boatman’s Song        2/ Many

Urvashi’s heart was aching to hear and to see the elegance  
Of the boatman, while he sing those melodies on earth 
A great longing started sprouting in her bosom  
To visit the earth and to listen those heart touching songs 
Which like a powerful magnet were pulling her towards earth
Where flows the Ganges and lives her unseen love 

To control her ever increasing desire of hearing those songs 
And to see that unique boatman, who lives on earth 
Urveshi tried to engage her more and more 
In the courtly dances and engagements for Indra
But the more she wanted to escape, more she became enchanted
By the echoes of boatman’s songs 
Which were tearing her heart and 
Making her mind almost intoxicated,  
By the melodies of those heavenly songs

The pleasures and comforts of heaven began to pinch her 
Like the piercing thorns 
Even the dance and music, which were her pride and passion
Became dull and charm less in the wake of those songs
For which she was hailed 
As the best among all the Apsaras in the entire universe  

Heaven seems to bring no joy and rejoicing for her any more
Her dancing steps, which were the symbols of perfection and beauty
Even started betraying her 
As her own heart was no longer in her possession any more
And she found that her mind and heart
Were swept away by that unseen boatman
Sailing his boat somewhere on earth

Apsara Urveshi after finishing her dance that day 
Told the God of heaven, Indra
That she perhaps can no longer perform any dance
Owing to agonies of her heart and restlessness of her mind
And her legs were not in tune with her mind to perform
A flawless dance and song by which she had captured the 
Hearts of all Gods and Goddess, what to say of humans on earth

She thought and thought and found that she can only normalize
If she can hear the songs of the boatman 
Singing in full throated ease on earth 
The echo’s of which were hovering in her mind like clouds
And twisting her heart to see that singer sublime

The Boatmans Song 1/ Many

1/ To be continued in many parts

It was a different era and it’s a different story
Of a boatman and his enchanting melodies 
An Apsara* falling in love with that boatman 
But the boatman having a different love story  

The boatman used to carry simple villagers 
From one bank of the river, to its other bank everyday
While moving his boat on the river  
He used to sing those heart touching stories 

His voice in itself was a melody 
Bestowed on him by the Goddess Saraswati*
And his love songs were the songs of true love stories
Sung by the boatman, in full throated ease and beauty
While oaring his boat in the river side stream
Flowing between a Jungle, on one bank side of the river
And long sand dunes spreading  
All over the other non ending side of the river Ganges

Charmed by boatman’s voice and songs
And charmed by the beauty of the enchanting Jungles* 
Spread all along the one side bank of the calmly flowing river Ganges
His passengers used to get lost in the melodies of his songs
So long as his boat was moving from the sand bank of the river stream 
To its Jungle end every time the boatman carries some passengers

One day the echoes of his melodies crossed 
The airy levels of earth and started flowing
Like a soothing cool breeze, even in heaven
And charmed all the heavenly bodies in the court of Indra*
He listened them almost spellbound and became enchanted 
By the echoes of those unheard melodies of the boatman

Urveshi* who was a crown beauty among the Apsaras* of Indra* 
And was much more than, beautiful and charming
Among all the Apsaras of heaven, found her lost in hearing
The echoes of those love songs sung by the boatman 

Urvasi found one day after hearing those echoes 
That she was in love with them and became restless 
To hear the real songs of the boatman, while sitting before him
In his boat in the river Ganges on earth 

Urveshi asked the Lord of Heaven Indra*
If she can go to earth to hear the songs of the boatman
As the echoes of his songs had made her restless beyond imagination
She found that even she can not enjoy the heavenly pleasures
Till she quenches her thirst of listening the melodies 
Of that boatman, he was singing on earth

BEYOND THE ROSE-COVERED GATE

I'm sensing something familiar as a lost memory
coming back and revealing itself in realistic form;
glancing at the rose-covered gate without a worm,
it looks different, somewhat newer; its color was gray
and roses that now cling weren't there...it's so enchanting!
Looking closer, I perceive another feeling of elation slowly rising.



An old house with long florid windows stood there,
beautiful flowers waved on windowsills looking out to the daisy-draped lawn...
that was the only beauty it had, then Erica ran down
and met me and gave me the most gorgeous sunflower;
I couldn't resist the lovely smile in those eyes color sapphire...
she was burning like the dry desert sand and asked me to quench her fire!



I recognized the passionate gleam in her enamored look, yet fearful as a deer; 
she led me through the rose-covered gate with unbelievable rush, her fair hand
was much warmer than the blood in my bursting veins, we had to explode
in passion and emit moaning screams that only the serenading bluejays could hear.



There it laid: a bed made of lilacs and jasmines...strong was the aroma I breathed,
I pulled her down as someone too desperate to devour and satisfy with eager eyes;
and too happy to lose myself in that ecstasy, I became the wild man she needed...
chimerical as dreamers, we clung to each other and sighed in our splendid Paradise.

earth angel

you came to me when i had no one helped me up when i was down 
you loved me regardless of my flaws make me smile when you play the clown
you make me see the inner light see deep beneath the skin
to love you more than yesterday is my only sin
and ill love you more tomorrow and the day that follows that 
ill love you for eternity living in this cold cramped flat
the riches of the world id trade  just for one more kiss 
and when your gone the simple things about you that i miss
if you ever leave me my earth angel ill be just skin and bone 
feeling so cold and empty feeling unloved and alone 
so here comes the honest part i need you like air to breath 
maybe i love to easy wear my heart on my right sleeve 
if it went you you i would be dead and buried in a shallow hole 
you came to me when i needed you and saved my taunted soul 
and when i die and go to heaven and stand before the pearly gates 
looking round and see my life my family and my mates 
but without you heaven is hell and this i am honestly stating 
enjoy you life on earth my darling cos in heaven ill be waiting

Jew #13

This is the number that some men dread, and some void
From the intercourse of life. But I, indelibly now, reclaim
Its place in universal order and the sweet conceit of pride
For C13 was the boudoir where our bodies did once flame
Like the poincianna's bloom. Evening was my special time
And the waiting for your knock on the door; O, your smile
Was my hibiscus in that room, your eyes the rose sublime
And your body my lignum vitae, rare, rich and softly mild.

Thirteen is a flower garden to me ... fresh beauty in a seed
And a thousand fruiting trees to come from it, I suckled
The morning glory of your tongue, felt you fed in me a need
For the glory of a seed. From our skin the water trickled
Irrigating dreams of generations to come, and then a drought
Sudden and fierce, and then my sadness through the years
To search for you, in school-less days, everywhere about
To make you grow rich again in the pasture of my tears

And some the number would blame for all the hapless things
But I, my faith to heaven clings, and honor Him for purposes
Unseen, for my life is not an accident, but ever love springs
To make me what I am; our life is as heaven sweet disposes 
And in all things I learn to trust and to wait, for the seasons
Of the flowers may go, but his promise like a rainbow remains
My life is beyond mere chance, our love above human reasons
And C13 stays as the cloud that brings sweet summer rains.

unsaid thoughts

Lord, lay me down gently in the cold cold ground.
Put me where I once trod freely, a spirit unbound,
akin to the bird and the water fowl.

Let the spring breeze announce another soul heaven bound,
while the gift my mother gave, lies molding in the cold cold ground.

Let my kin cry a while and a while
then wipe their tears with a smile.

Let them contemplate love and family and what it is they have never found.
Let them look, oh Lord, look--before they too find a place in the cold, cold ground.

What lies behind is what once was ahead, a figment of the human mind.

Let me ride the road to glory, let me peel the larder's rind.
Let me sit beside my loved ones, eternally sublime.
Let me not regret my being, nor that I had to leave.
Let me go, let me go friend, I know what I believe.

And I believe, oh, I do believe, He I talk to is real.
For in his own way, he makes me feel what I feel.

All that I do and say, and love, 
All that I am and am part of:
For my love of Him, will they also find- -
peace, joy, happiness, and forgiveness. 

It is so because He told me it is so, bound
by His promise, I carry  with me into the cold, cold ground.

And when she lies beside me, only then will, I be complete.

Two spirits merged, amo amas amat--yes I love, 
I have loved and I shall love.  
I am loved, I shall be loved, I will have been loved.

The great mystery: I am one, she is one and we are one,
something which will not change though the ground be cold,
though the winds blow, the tide rises and the sun falls from the heavens.

As surely as, I have lived and I have died.
As surely as, I have laughed, worried and cried,
putting all other good and wonderful things aside,
I will lay in the cold, cold ground with my bride.

While for now, in this earthly form we linger, awaiting the final surrender
to the great “I am”, the Prince of Heaven glorified.
Amen, Amen and Amen

The Boatman's Song 3/ Many

The Boatman’s Song        3/ Many


Indra was aware that Apsaras Urveshi
Was the incarnation of heavenly beauty 
And her restlessness and impatience can spoil
The very beauty of her body and dance
Which was the pride and embodiment of perfection

He also knew that without Urveshi
Even the heaven would look lifeless, without any beauty
Everyone in heaven had thrown their hearts
To get only one glance of Urveshi’s adorable loving eyes
During her dancing sessions, the junior Gods of Indra used to remain glued
Sometimes forgetting even their breathing

Such was the magic of her beauty, dance and songs
Even Indra often found himself lost in beholding
The flawless figure of her body and her lovely dance forms  
And such was her dancing skills that even Apsaras 
Used to get lost in the sweetness of her voice 
And the thrilling and joy of her skillful dance    

Lord Indra’s realization of Urveshi’s feelings

Indra was thinking, whether to allow her to visit the earth 
To hear the melodies of the boatman or 
Not to allow her, as it could be risky for a woman like Urveshi  

Urveshi may get tempted and may fall in love
With that earthly voiced singer, whose songs
Are echoing beyond the horizons of earth
And have reached even in the sphere of heaven

Indra was aware that Urveshi was the most beautiful  
Among all the Apsaras of heaven and of the entire universe
And if she keep on worrying about the boatman’s songs
At the cost of her dances, joys and pleasures 
It was going to spoil her lavishly bestowed beauty
Which glitters and glow or get pale on a woman
As per the love or longings blows in her heart and reflects on her face

Hidden in it’s never ending joys, songs and pleasures  
There was no match with that of the earthly happiness
Which is found like a blooming Rose bud
Opening its charms and joyful petals of fragrance and beauty
Surrounded all around with thrones like 
Pains, sufferings and sorrows of life
But once you possess it, facing the piercing thorns
You bloom in a rare heavenly joy and pleasure
Which even can not be dreamed of by those
Who dwells in the never ending and fading joys of heaven 

Indra found that there was no way to stop
The throbbing heart of Urveshi for that boatman
And for his heart touching melodies, 
Floating both on earth and heaven

Finding no way out, He thought to put a condition
So that Urveshi may not go finding out 
That a visit to earth could end her permanent stay in heaven
For ever and for ever without any returning 

Indra cautioned Urveshi 
That if she is determined to go to earth
She may go to listen the melodies of that boatman
But she should not go close to that boatman 
And should not touch his body 
Or else, she would not be able to return to heaven
As her single touch to any human would make her 
An Earthly body, which would be subject to
Life and death and mortality 

He again tried to convince Urveshi
Your love for the boatman and his earthly body
Can bring an end of your tenure in heaven
Still, if you decide to be a part of that life
I will not stop you to visit the earth, But
You will miss for ever and for ever, your heavenly abode
And your, never ending joys and pleasures of heaven
The moment you will adopt the earthly pleasure
You will be doomed for a normal life and death
As it is availed by humans living on earth

Think Urveshi think again
Can you dare to miss the heavenly comforts?
Its  non-ending joys, songs, mirth and pleasures
Where pains and sufferings are not even known
Can you really afford to live on earth, like a normal human?

Where one faces only pains and sufferings 
Throughout his life and ends one day in spite of all strife’s

The Boatman's Song 7/ Many

The Boatman’s Song                       7/Many

Inner Conflict of Urveshi

While her mind was cautioning her to retain
The comforts and luxuries of heaven
And not to go to earth, which can take form her
The blessings to live in heaven
Her heart again tried to murmur in her mind
Was she really happy? In the heaven sublime
Was not she tired of living in comforts and 
Was not she fed-up with the non ending joys?

What was this life without anything to sacrifice
Without the joys of pains and pleasures after sufferings
Where everyone meets, but no one departs
Where everyone sings, but no heart rejoice
Where everything is gained, without ever any loss
Where seasons remain same, without any change
And never the heart moves, to sing a sad song
Where no Koyal* sings, its melodies in spring
Where no flower fades and always remains the same
Where no one feels tired and no one ever retires
Where no one fails and no one wins

Urveshi’s mind felt fed-up with these never ending comforts
Her heart exclaimed in utmost uneasiness and pain
Even these non ending comforts are useless 
Without love, loss and gain 

Urveshi’s decision

She made-up her mind to at least go to earth
To listen the songs of the boatman first 
Songs of the boatman, for which she has fought
So much so, with her mind and heart 

Lord Indra’s reaction

When Indra came to know
The decision of the heart of Urveshi
He was stunned for a moment
As the decision was beyond his imagination
His mind could not conceive 
That someone can think like this
And can take such a dooming decision
It was beyond his mind and imagination 
That Urveshi can decide to leave the heaven
Which is her most prideful possession
And a place for which every one prays
And waits and waits to find such an abode of 
Their hearts longings and wishes

Indra knew that without Urveshi
Even the heaven would loose its luster and shine
As its prime beauty would no longer be inspiring to smile
Or would no longer be dancing 
To enjoy the songs of Urveshi

Urveshi’s Visit to Earth 

While on way to the earth from heaven
Urveshi was still thinking and trying to find a way
How to go close to that boatman’s voice
Whose song echoes had already 
Captured her mind and heart so tightly

I Will Hold You Once Again

Getting over losing you
Will be the hardest thing to do
Tears will fall, my heart will break
A lonely feeling I will take
In everything I do and see
Knowing that your memory
Is locked inside my lonely heart
And every day I have to start
Living without my best friend
Now all I can do is send
Hugs and kisses through the sky
And on angel wings they’ll fly
Up to heaven where you are
Brightly shining like a star
That I wish on every night
I could hug and hold you tight
One more time before you go
Making the dark night sky glow
With sparkles shining from above
Wrapping me up with your love

The Boatman's Song 10/ Many

The boatman’s Song				10/Many

The beauty of that black horse got doubled
With the glittering beauty of the princess on the horse 
Who was elegantly riding that black horse beauty 
While coming towards the boatman with a speed 
He had never seen earlier, when a lady was on a horse 

Her shining long black hairs and few locks on her face, were
Blending with the ravishing beauty of her charming face
Which even the sunbeams were trying to penetrate
To kiss her rosy lips and her glowing lovely face
And with each gush of morning beams
A blush came on her lovely face
On which hundreds and thousands can live and die
And can wait for a whole life to see that face

Her body was glittering like a gem
Because of her teenage and beauty excelling her age
And her youth over sprouting from her bosoms
From her princes sly top and riding trousers
She was dazzling the eyes of the boatman
As there was no one else 
Who could dare to behold her beauty and grandeur
Which was par excellent, any where on earth

She stepped down from the horse back 
With a beautiful sharp jump on the sand
And stood beside the heavenly beautiful horse
She saw the boatman was standing near his boat
And was singing a melody unaware of her gaze

The moment the princess heard that voice
Her heart jumped from her chest
Which had just calmed from thrills
As she had stepped by jumping from the horseback
And her body had calmed only few seconds back

Enchanted and allured by the beauty and heaviness of voice
And totally stunned to see his manliness, so warrior like tight
She forgets her princes sly pride and got lost in adoring
His song and his enchanting voice
Coming from the depths of that singers heart
Suddenly she found herself standing before the boatman
Lost in his heart capturing eyes

There was no one else except these two
And the boatman could not believe
Whether it was a dream or a reality come true
He too was lost in the charms of her eyes
And even forgot to finish the song he was singing
And felt only that someone was penetrating 
In his heart and mind, deep some where very deep

The Boatman's Song 11/ Many

The Boatman’s Song 			11/Many


Many moments passed, but none spoke a word
Or tried to moved away and remained lost 
In each other’s thoughts
They were lost in each others beauty and charms
Suddenly they found, they were in each other’s arms
None spoke a word and no one tried to depart
In those most cherished moments, love was showering on them
Thousands of flowers were blooming in their minds
And the fragrance of love was spreading in their hearts

Unknowingly both of them, became so dear to one another
As if, the Goddess of love had blessed them for each other
Those were the most lovely, beautiful and memorable moments
For which one waits for ever and for ever
Life is a strange drama they both were thinking 
Where what may happen in the next moments, no one knows ever

In the meanwhile the princess heard a sound coming from a distance
She got alert and made a good distance from the boatman
So that the visitor may not know, for what purposes she was here
But before leaving the boatman, she uttered in her lovely voice, 
Few words, which were glued with love, 
“My dream man I am princess of this kingdom
I will come back to hear you and your songs very soon some day
But at present I have to go immediately from here 
Please don’t ask anything right now from me”

Without a moment’s delay she moved away from there  
To a place, where she had left her horse in waiting for her 
The Princess rode on the horseback and moved here and there
As if, she had reached on that place, without any purpose
And came because her horse ran speedily and brought her there

She pretended to move the horse towards the direction
From where, on an other horse, her father was coming
He called, O Princess you are here, we were searching you
Every where over there, but could not locate you any where
Very innocently she replied,” O father, I was trying to see the river
And the sand dunes spreading all over here there 
And was about to return when you have come over here”

The Boatman's Song 8/ Many

The Boatman’s Song 8/Many

Urveshi finding no way out 
Remembered her nymph friend Tarang*
She knew that Tarang can help her to find a way
To go close to that boatman, whom she has started loving so much
For hearing those heart touching melodies 
Which had changed her life like a magic in heaven

The moment Urveshi remembered her friend Tarang*
The airy Tarang* heard her hearts voice and 
Immediately came near her friend Urveshi
She murmured in her ears,
“O Yes, my darling crown princess of heaven,
I am here with you to help you, O immortal beauty divine,
Whose glance only can kill even the bravest of brave kings,
In heaven or on earth, even without a drop of Hemlock wine

The moment Urveshi heard the voice of her nymph friend Tarang*
Smile returned on her face with a blush, which brightens the 
Beauty of a woman, irrespective whether she is on earth or in heaven
Urveshi briefed her friend Tarang* 
About the longings of her heart for the boatman and his songs
And told her that, she finds no pleasure now in heaven
Ever since she has heard the echoes of the boatman’s songs

Nymph Tarang after listening the story of Urveshi
Told her to wait there only, till she returns after seeing the boatman

Invisible Tarang took leave from Urveshi 
And vanished from their on her wings 
To see and meet the boatman on earth
Tarang using her extraordinary powers
Located the boatman’s boat,  near the bank of river Ganges
She came near the boat, where the boatman was waiting
Looking at the sand dunes, as if he was waiting for something
His face was grim and his eyes were trying to find someone

Tarang got charmed by seeing this wonderful & handsome Youngman
Although till then, she had not heard even a word of his voice
About which her friend got so much enchanted and charmed
That she even left her permanent dwelling place like heaven, 
To see him and to hear his songs, on a place like earth

Tarang decided to wait till the boatman moves his boat
So that she may gets a chance to hear those wonderful enchanting
The thing which was left, was reading the boatman’s mind 
For which Tarang decided to wait for a while

If Heaven Had a Phone

If Heaven had a phone
I would call it right 
away.

To hear the laughter in your 
voice
would help to ease the pain

If heaven had a phone 
I would call it right away 
if only to say I miss you 
each and every day.

When you were here on earth with me
my daddy, my best friend.
Teaching the important things life 
might bring my way.

I used to call you every day 
listening to your advice,
or just to say I love you 
before bed each night.

When the lord took you home with him
The one thing he forgot 
was that there was someone here on 
earth who needed you a lot

Some people say the pain will ease
but here on earth is 
one who knows
it never will subside.

If heaven had a phone 
I would call you right away
if only to say I love you 
each and every day.

He Loved You

He loved you too, you know
Loved you like his very own
In away you were
You came into his life as my friend
Through the years you grew to be my brother in arms 
Along the way you became the son he never had

He loved you as a friend
He loved you even more as a son
A son he never had
When things began to spiral out of control
You stayed when so many others ran away
You helped when I couldn’t

You meant a great deal to him
You never looked at him differently 
Nor did you treat him differently
You stood by his side
When he fell, you stood by his side and mine
You were willing to help me fight his battle for him 
You were there from the beginning 
You were there until the bitter end
Always remember my friend, my brother
He loved you more than you’ll ever know

We Lost More Than a Dad

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost we four girls first love
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half 
Our children lost their Papaw
We lost our family’s foundation 
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew 
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we four girls Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We four girls lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We four girls lost more than a Dad
We lost more than just a Dad that day

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.

Don't Cry

Please don't cry over my casket 
For I am not there 
Please don't cry at my grave 
My soul has been set free 
I know it's hard not to cry 
I've been down that road one to many times 

I have no more pain 
I have no more sickness 
And I would not change a thing 
As I walk threw the gates of Heaven 
Mom Dad our brothers and sisters 
Will welcome me with open arms 
Here I am free of that pain 

Don't blame yourself 
It was my time to go home 
This is where I'm supposed to be 
Don't dwell on things which you can not change 
I will always be in your heart 

I will always be watching over you 
When that day comes for you to come home
I will be there to welcome you 
With open arms
And walk you threw the gates of Heaven 
You will be greeted by our family & friends
Who came home before you 
Until that day I will be watching over you

What Is This Church All About

What Is This Church All About?

Is this church meant for people like me?
Is this where God really wants me to be?

They claim to be filled with God’s spirit.
When it comes to HIS truth...  Can they give it?

I’m sure there’s many who come and attend
It’s more than “church on Sunday,” that we must spend!

We must reach out to the lost and the oppressed!
After all, Christ gave us his very best!

May we all preach the gospel and God’s holiness!
And strive to seek his awesome righteousness!

Living for Jesus must be a daily walk and experience!
Not simply based on our “ambitious self appearance.”

God isn’t interested in a denomination or a title…
He wants to know…  Do we really believe the Bible?

He’s not interested in the money put in the offering plate.
He wants to know; “Are you ready
 to enter heaven’s gate?”

May we strive to serve Jesus with a zeal and passion!
And be filled with his holiness and compassion!

May we serve Jesus from a heart of humbled confession!
And making our commitment to him,
 our #1 possession!

“Unless the Lord builds the house.”  
They labor in vain that build it!
Let’s seek the power of God! 
May his presence completely fill it!!

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
darkness
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
through
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 
time 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
energy
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
existence, 
I've owned the power of 
omnificence 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
descendant 
Created in the image of a 
thought
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
rhythmic
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
hertz;
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
sleep
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
patterns
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
beyond;
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
core
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
-  
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
Listen!! 
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
checked
the universe will correspond 
accordingly
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

The witches winds are blowing

                  
                                               
 The Santa Ana's are here, and the moon is clear. 
There is a mystic in the air that whispers in my ear.
  Is this a peaceful feeling or does it carry fear ? 

What is the passion and hot fragrence of orange blossom that is pulling me a different way , as if this power has been sent only by a Witch of the finest of White Magic, only to calm the Blue Soul I have known my whole life.


 I feel a passion that is running through my Veins like the  power of water itself .
 
                               
As if the Moon itself were instructed to warm the air that is blowing . It is not a new moon , it is not a old moon , it is a moon that appears only in ones lifetime to gaze at .

 By seeing and feeling the very power of this Moon you will dance your way to Heaven with happiness of what is yet to come.
 
The Stars around this Moon are unique as if they take the presence of every loved one you and I have lost . 

The Witches winds with the warm glowing of the moon, as if I had never met you before , are blowing with the frangerence of Orange Blossom or Magnolia , from a distant past of The South.
 
As if I know we have been together once before , a Moon such as this . In a peaceful , lustful state of Bliss.
 

 There is something coming .. is it something I have always known or wanted ?

 What is yet to be known is as intoxicating as the Santa anas that are running through my body.
 As if i have been struck by the power of light , as the powerful moon I gaze at in the Night.
It is piercing my soul with it's only Truth, 
                                         By;

In every link we each send you a part of us
We send you some of our Strength
Some of our will to Fight

And we'll be there
Tug til you need us no more

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.

Heaven and Hell

You were just a fairy tale
a dream that sometimes felt so real
a secret I kept safely locked away
You were there and I was here
and never would I ever dare
that is until one very crazy day
Then all at once it hit me
like nothing else I've ever known
I have tried to calm this storm
but since then it has grown
and I have tried to tame this beast
but I've been overthrown
and know I'm ready to admit
what I have always known
You're a dream that's oh so real
and I love how you make me feel
and this feels something like a dream come true
I could never stay away from you

Caught between Heaven and Hell
I've been captured by your spell
please show me all the magic you can make
And when my body cries for you
there is nothing I won't do
and what you want to give me I will take
Since this whole thing started
you haven't seen the tears I've cried
but I know you've seen me tremble
and you know how hard I've tried
You've watched me struggle with myself
then try to run and hide
You've watched me come right back again
and swallow all my pride
I've been weak more times than strong
but whether this is right or wrong
you must know the same thing that I do
I could never walk away from you

I don't know where this will go
and I don't really need to know
I just know I need you close to me
You said you'd always be my friend
and I will trust you to the end
but don't forget you are my fantasy
I'm so wrapped up in desire
sometimes it takes my breath away
sometimes it seems so many things
are standing in our way
and sometimes I can't tell you
all the things I need to say
but then you take me in your arms
and everything's okay
With your love I am set free
you know you mean the world to me
and I would go through Hell to be with you
because I am in Heaven when I do

Tender of Roses

Beloved, lovely roses: gift of God and lover’s flower,
Spread your colored petals and cradle tender showers.
While admiring the blossoms with their beauty to behold,
Ought we not to know the Tender of such lovely garden groves?

For He lovingly and thoughtfully wields His pruning shears
To cut away the stems of old for fuller future years.
He cultivates and feeds them. He attends them as a Father
Looking daily to their needs; so faithfully He waters.

From the dawn of morning dew until the setting sun arrays
Caring always for His own until that great appointed day…
When the Gardener comes to claim each one the earth held as its own.
He gently picks it at its peak and for His pleasure takes it home.

As God did one glorious morning, when the Perfect Rose had bloomed.
He rolled away the stone and met with Mary at the tomb.
There the sweetest Rose of Sharon rose that we die not alone.
But be gathered for a garden grove, surrounding heavens throne.

if heaven had a phone

if heaven had a phone 
id call you everyday 
to hear your voice again 
your soft mellow tone. 
thats all i would do
sit in my room on the phone 
opening up to you
letting you know my troubles
and listening to yours too
id tell you everyday 
just how much we all miss you
id tell you all the things i love 
the things i love to do 
you could tell me lots of stories 
and id listen with intent 
id let you know all the harsh words ive said
and that they were never meant
but heaven doesnt have phone 
i really think it should 
to listen to you again id do anything i could

An Ode To My Beloved

I just wanted to let you know
That I have this love for you...
Although I'm not fast to show
For you, there's nothing I wouldn't do
And I can't control this love
No matter what I try to do...

While I know our lives are separating
Which has got me pretty blue
I just want you to know
How much I love you...

Because I was blinded by shyness
And now my heart's feeling rugged
So this here's An Ode To My Beloved 

Oh how I still see you every night in my mind
You're the best girl I feel I'll ever find
And when my eyes would fall upon your smile
My heart would be put on trial
And so if nothing else, I want to let you know
That I'll always love you, that my hearts beat
For you, won't ever slow...

Because I was blinded by shyness
And now my heart's feeling rugged
So this here's An Ode To My Beloved 

So I wish you happiness beyond compare
And sorry for the times I couldn't help but stare
Caring, passionate, smart, and loving
From my heart, to you, I'll never be shoving

You will always be in my heart
No matter where we go, how far we drift apart...

Goodbye My Love...

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

My Beloved

Hey Mr. Editor,
It's not very often we hear true stories of enduring Love that grows with time. I can 
hear the cynic groan as I write this, but it's a good human interest story and I 
thought a good one for the coming of spring, a time of new birth and new beginings. 
There is a couple who met while in school, years ago.  After graduation they both 
were seperated by thousands of miles; both got married to different people 
sometime later and raised their young families.  All this time their love remained 
silent, waiting, yet strong.  Today, their children are adults and about to venture on 
their own lives. Reconnected once more, perhaps by fate, they have planned to wed 
very soon.  I was asked by the Bride-to-be, a dear friend, to write a poem on her 
behalf which she would read to her Groom at their Wedding Ceremony. I was truly 
honored and graciously obliged. It's titled,"My Beloved.  Thank you for your 
consideration of my request.

My Beloved, Today, I can not say that dreams do not sprout wings! Nor will I ever accuse time of being an adversary Not when I know that within its grasp lies our past, present and future Today, my heart is full and overflowing with abundant joy! Gazing into your beautiful soul, I glimpse love’s sparkling reflection Streaming like a river, endless, into vast ocean tides And I stand in awe of God’s everlasting love and providence The sweetest portion of which we have come to taste! For so long I have waited! How I have yearned for this moment When I would pledge life and love to you; become one flesh, one heart! One heart that will bleed no more as nothing can stand between us I will lose myself in you and you in me forever! No longer will dreams haunt our lonely nights And I will not have to walk this side of Heaven without you When I consider the paths which we have traveled I marvel and smile, as now it is clear - they were leading us to, this day! In the silence of a thousand nights my prayers to heaven took flight And though seasons of yesterdays came only to fade away Time, it seemed, had shelved my fervent plea ‘Til sweet destiny obliged, leading me to the one who holds my heart My Beloved, my husband, my best friend, and companion, Our love has arrived; our single journey begins today!

Sea impression

                 
                 Wave a sea softened
                  and a pain and a tenderness
                   throw dreams in fascination
                   of the blue.
                   And let shave the waves of
                   Your eternity , oh, weigh

                    to stop the scales harbours 
                    with hot flames for You are

                    heart and frank await the 
                    hymn of June.
                    All sea sisters are dressed in

                    embroidered of kiss of 
                    eternity. 
                    In the morning hunts them
                    fishermen and revive with
                    breath of their man’s hands.
                    In the evening girls wash 
                    their black tunics,
                    in their blue hearts,
                    their feet white ,who cadge
                    heavy chains.
                    The night is squeezed enigma
                    and ugly,
                    predatory like a bat pecking
                    of scarlet fig.
                    Sea sisters, sea sisters,
                    remember His steps 
                    which go through you noiselessly,
                  and ou swing like
                  bloody wine-
                 hold in His fingers Herod,
                 Pilate washes his hands,
                in Yours heirs
               and they bristled like winter
               icicles bristles of innoncent blood .
               There at Golgotha 
                hearing terrible cry,
                blood gushes like
               wounded river disappear
               like Easter roses,
              in weeds of flushed 
     preditory crowd,
     to open way of
     saving.
     Who is He?
     Do you heard 
     His name ?
     He is Messiah,
     God’s anoited
      Jesus Christ.
      Like little sheeps,
      clouds of candy floss,
      they welcome festivaly.
       Barefooted are feet 
      of lovely swarthy steps
     of the sun, came to bow,
      before You , Creator.
      The sea throws his 
       magnificent silver flesh,
      blue like heavently lace,
       to swallow all stars 
       only Bethlehem’s
      stays inextinguishable,
       pretty like uncreated
      like an apple of not 
      born girl.

DANCE

A young novice in a new town
where He didn't know a soul
His head was spinning so fast
he just wanted to do his role

Oh.. it's hard to be the rookie
where every single thing is new
Stepped outside the boundaries 
'cause he really didn't have a clue

He was living for the weekend
time to finally relax and unwind
Jumping off the conveyer belt
where he'd been running blind

Now he's off to the county dance
feels like the whole town is there
But on this turf he's comfortable
and pretty girls are everywhere

Not a shy bone is in his body
one by one he takes their hand
Feels like Heaven in this moment
he's loving this thumping band

You talk about total cluelessness
he thought the night was going well
One boy didn't like his girl chasing 
now his eye is starting to swell

He never thought about social politics
wow, was that a huge mistake
Be careful how you compliment
or next bones he might just break

Friend, when your new in the city
but careful who you romance
Those pretty girls might be taken
and not just by your dance!

*The Town is Poetry Soup.  The Dance is the exchange of comments.  The black eye was because the new writer didn't know all the politics going on here.  More details.. You'll have to read between the lines :)

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!

IN MEMORY TO MY FATHER

written 23rd Oct 1997

So long I needed to visit
 but my heart didn't listen
Letting you know how much "I love you so"
 is now something, you will never ever know

Now that you are gone
 I know I waited to long
If I could just have that one more chance
 I would never treat it as just another glance

Now, you have become my biggest memory
 for you have gone, to a place I can not see
Knowing that we will never again touch
 makes me miss you, so very much

My children are still to young
 to wonder why pop hasn't rung
My heart is now empty
 for you, it always had plenty

I really do need to have you back
 you were the "only one, who saw me back
I know deep down inside
 you love me, more than words could describe

For it is only now, that I realise why you didn't want me around
 you knew how "painful it would have been, to watch you drown
But, as long as I am still alive
 you too, will continue to survive

For I will always be your darling little Denise
 who hopes, you forever rest in peace

A Perfect Love

A Perfect Love

These warm raindrops fall like rose petals
Like glistening pink ribbons and picture perfect kisses
For I feel the warmth of your sweet breath
Which glides underneath to our paradise.

As if we are lying on warm white clouds
Underneath these warm petals of raindrops
We feel the softness of red rose petals
And entices the glistening drops of love.

So pure, it enraptures us into a colossal
Of a heavenly warmth of perfect love
We'll both be enraptured by the very essence
As we're lying on the warmth of white clouds.

We'll be flying and enveloped upon a dove
Of a heavenly warmth of perfect love.

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

THE CRY OF HOSANNA

His message to Mankind was divine love, much louder than 
the desert wind hissing through the tall palm trees;
they heard Him, but sadly contempt built up when
they defiled the Temple by selling and trading instead of praying on their knees...
so Jesus got the whip and the lame and the blind cried out the word, " Hosanna! " 


Hosanna! Hosanna! 
Hosanna! Hosanna!


Christ was the faithful servant who was scourged, derided and crucified,
now, is the friend of all who believe in Him, not in a sinful world....
the Redeemer who carried the heavy cross to Calvary and died;
His resurrection was a victory over death making Him the eternal Lord!
Who besides Him is more worthy of God His Father, are we?
Anytime Jesus prayed, He finished that prayer with this holy word, " Hosanna! "


Hosanna! Hosanna! 
Hosanna! Hosanna!


Nothing has changed...it was an unjust and mean world, and so it will be;
they lived for lust, power and money getting greedier than Judas who chose death;
find that good soul that resembles Jesus...is it that poor man who seeks mercy?
We can gather much gold, make him a crown and place it on his bruised head!
And while he sits there waiting for compassion, his feeble voice proclaims," Hosanna! " 


Hosanna! Hosanna! 
Hosanna! Hosanna! 


All nations strive for supremacy, making useless and massive weapons so destructive,
they have no love for their neighbors...they hate peace and every beautiful place;
we have made it to this century...will others see a tomorrow not dark and delusive?
Pray like Jesus did and put your fate in the hands of the Almighty who's grace! 
No joy or possession is greater than faith...get up, look up and shout, " Hosanna! " 


Hosanna! Hosanna!
Hosanna! Hosanna!

Redneck Angel

Redneck Angel
Lyrics By Robert Taylor


A thousand cases of beer
Hangin’ with Jack all night
Sleeping with women from a bar
Not knowin’ their names when I woke

Then I saw your eyes in the dark
Sitting alone in the bar
An Angel from heaven sent
Dressed in Daisy dukes
And red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle

I walked over and talked to you
Just hoping that you were real
We talked and then we kissed
Spent our time together
Drinking, dancing and talking the night away
How could God have so blessed
A poor assed Redneck boy like me.

I saw you down at the swamp
Wearing plaid, with mud in your hair
You were a redneck angel from heaven
Dressed in Daisy Dukes
And red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle


Then I gave my heart to you
At the Antioch Baptist Church
Vows given without fear
My love is yours forever
I looked at your eyes through your veil
And you were crying with happiness
You were a Redneck angel from heaven
Dressed in daisy dukes
Red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle

How could God have so blessed
A poor assed redneck boy like me. 

Hiding but always in plain sight
Drinking, fishing, mud bogging
Things a girl shouldn’t do
How could you be who you are
Sharing my love and my life

How could God have so blessed
A Redneck like me. 

An angel from heaven sent
Dressed in Daisy Dukes
Red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwoods miracle

The face of love

Trying prayer, realising

 it doesn't stop right there.

 You say a prayer and hope

 that its enough, that your

 words of love have reached

 Heaven above. Just stop and

 think how we have asked? Was

 it behind a mask of sorrow and

 shame.Thinking we are not good

 enough to receive a blessed gain.

 We have it all wrong as its what

 Jesus has already done. None are

 worthy its Gods free gift of grace.

 So raise your head, truly open your

 eyes. Look up and realise love does

 have a face, thank you Jesus

As a stranger I met you

As a stranger I met you
Pure and gentle was your appearance
You spoke a touch without words
A breeze so pure like light

As I listened with my eyes
I smelled the taste of beauty beyond honey
What a feeling?
An emotion lost within expressions
An experience of heaven's true Agape

Oh what an experience to share
A beauty whose light can't be gazed
A gift priceless to be bought free
Your touch so perfect to the broken

Yes your name is Love
Your nature perfect in quality and in glory
oh Eden's first language
You're that truth I can't hide

Man's Corruption God's Redemption

Man's Corruption...  God's Redemption!

The Bible speaks of man's sin and corruption.
That's why God has offered us, his redemption!

The heart is desperately wicked above all things.
There's an evil corruption that sin brings!

The Lord searches our heart and tests our ways.
He watches our lives, all of our days!

There's nothing good in ourselves.
Not now, or ever!
Without God's mercy...
We're doomed forever!

But, through Christ, there's a way and a plan!
He made this available to every woman and man!

His gift of salvation is a message of love, made clear!
The coming of Jesus Christ,
 draws ever so near!

We can trade our sinful corruption, 
for a new way of living!
Won't you come before the Lord,
with a heart of giving?

Giving our life to Jesus,
 is the best thing to do!
By his power and grace, you can be
made BRAND NEW!

I'm thankful for his salvation! 
 Mercy has been applied!
Because of Christ' death on the cross…
I'm now sanctified!

Johnny Depp Wrapped in Chocolate Would Be Heaven Sent

~~Johnny Depp Wrapped in ChocolateThat Would Be Heaven Sent~~ Bonjour môn amies a ballade to write, will be my fait accompli The trials of a woman to bring love - in a village that did not play. An alluring female chocolatier opens a choclaterie-e Hated by the Mayor she wished her plans she never did lay Ooh la la !! Her dress was racy - but still they began to pay Johnny Depp was her gypsy lover when on the river they went But she had to win the love of others to fulfil plans, come what may Johnny Depp wrapped in chocolate - that would be heaven sent. A village so French - a so called femme fatal-e She determined to change there outlook and stay Viva la difference, but one by one she turned them to see Her chocolate treats did melt in mouth - in secret they did say C’est manifique - they whispered with authority Her sweets bites bought together those she thought were meant Even though some tried to block her treats others made a silent plea Johnny Depp wrapped in chocolate – that would be heaven sent. To church the lady never went an illegitimate child the Mayor did see But slowly the French ladies turned to love this alluring woman and say Her chocolate they thought magical- her raison d’etre it must be Her tête-à-têtes were to open hearts, and bring peace and love to stay Reconciliations made in her chocolate shop - their thoughts began to sway But no chocolates were they to eat, and the reason - it was lent… But those that did dare to try - found on their tongues it did dance and play But Johnny Depp wrapped in chocolate - that would be heaven sent. Prince Depp my piece-de-resistance, is there for all to see My joie de vivre if I had been there, even though it may be lent I would have paid money just to see… Johnny Depp wrapped in chocolate - that would be heaven sent. ©

Mother, Forgive Us

Mother,
I used to walk in dark places and know that I was safe.
Because I knew that I loved you.

Mother,
I have abused my brothers and sisters.
I have contaminated your purity with murder.
I have raped your daughters.
I have kidnapped your children.
I have brought your blessed bosom to the brink of destruction.

And now, even when I walk in daylight I do not feel safe.
For now I am aware of what I have been to you.
Worse than a prodigal, I have endeavored to exploit the very mother who nurtures me.
And now that I have worsened whatever imbalance was in you before I arrived,
I endeavor to flee you like a coward through the grace of an oblivious savior.

Mother,
I have dreamed a dream of water.
I have dreamed a dream of living water.
And in this dream Jesus, my Savior, told me that he was not oblivious.
And in this dream Jesus told me that he was fully aware of my crimes against you.

Mother,
I have dreamed a dream of fire.
I have dreamed a dream of unquenchable fire.
And in this dream Jesus reminded me that I was sent here to heal you as you taught me of manhood.
And in this dream Jesus told me that if I could not love you, my mother, who I could see, then how could I love my Father in heaven who I could not.

Mother,
I have dreamed a dream of air.
I have dreamed a dream of whirlwinds.
And in this dream I breathed in the breath of forgiveness and I realized that it was not too late for us.

Mother,
I have dreamed a dream of earth.
And in this dream, Mother Earth, I see you and us together, fighting for our freedom.
Fighting against the delusion that our fates are not eternally intertwined.

Mother earth,
Please forgive us.
For true, we have betrayed you.
But it is not too late.

Mother,
I promise you that as sure as my savior is in heaven we are going to make it.

Mother,
I present myself to you as a living witness.
The Lord has not forsaken us.
For within our DNA is the secret to your healing and the end of our insanity.

Mother,
Thank you for loving and protecting me, even as I raped and wounded you.
And now it is my turn.

“In the name of Jesus, the earth and all of the earth’s inhabitants are one mind, heart, and body.  In the name of Jesus, we are one person, one planet, and one purpose.  In the name of Jesus, the lion will soon lay down with the lamb and this beautiful sound, this sound of the sacred Gaia will know harmony!!”

You are~
The queen of hive~keeping a universe of sweetness alive.
The richness of air~ more richness than a gem or bank can bare.
The float of a boat~the ink of a love note.
The warmth of a coat~the warmth of prevailing hope.

With a billion brilliantly buffed  stars you shine~a shine in the night of my mind.
You are the eloquence of glistening and glamorous Fiji waters~beauteous waves of mind.
A Unhurried dulcet substance steaming ahead~honey flowing through your veins.
I can visualize your golden veins,coiling on the
bars of heavens divine gates ~ your soul the key to heaven.
I'm  sure a blind man can see you, I'm sure women would love to be you~ I'm sure though I haven't seen you.

Perhaps I seen you in
the rose I smelled yesterday
the sun of today
the mystical formation of
comely clouds. 
perhaps I seen you girdled in 
trees of fortitude,may be you
are the the fortifier of it all,the
beautifier of all roses standing tall.

You are the first steps of a baby
that once use to crawl,supportive
to all.You are the benign tender of
a baby's BIRTH~


So go ahead ask me what your WORTH,
and yes baby people like you is the 
restoration of EARTH.


So go ahead ask me what your WORTH,
And i'll say YOUR  WORTH MORE THAN EARTH!!!

Your birth chained heaven to earth~
A visible but invisible cord the doctors couldn't Cut,

BUT guess what these words came from the heaven in my GUT!!!

Bravery

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

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..

Daybreak

I wake on the sand
Right near the beach
You have yet to awake
Far out of reach
And Daybreak has arrived
A beauty unlike any other
Comparable only to us, girl
And how we love each other

So I gaze up alone
Marveling up at the sky
The warmth of the sun
Drying my eyes
I'm reflecting on us
Oh how each other we trust
I'm just so happy we're together
And I think to myself,
Just as this sun, we'll last forever

Then returning to be with you
I lay again now
Place my hand gently
On your warm tender shoulder
While I think of our lives today, love
And how they'll be when we're older...
I know there'd be no other way
So "I Love You" I make sure I say
To you, each and everyday

HEAVEN

There once was a husband in heaven
His faults per hour averaged seven
In spite of all of his rot
His wife would scold not
Ah, this husband was living in heaven!

Damn You, Eve

Mourn my loss of innocence; the Queen of 
Love, and I her prince. Dance, we dance, all 
the way to Heaven- born of grief, and the 
things I have written...And dare I ask, or 
merely inquire, on who doth Love me, and who 
is a liar? Just say my name, old curse of 
shame, cloaked in dark, and murky colors 
No skies to fly, no seas to sail, no land on 
which to keep my Lovers
All too silent, this lonely night;
No choice to choose, no grounds to fight 
These pleading words, and Fools in herds-
marching to the Ends of the Earth 
People I loath, and you were told: I do wish 
Eve hadn't given birth...

Heaven Shower Me

Heaven Shower Me
By Nate Spears

Tell me something good
Email me if you would
Rather than take a minute
Take my heart 
In a second 
If you could.

I’ll go through hell to reach you
Thank God and the heavens
For letting me meet you
God All Mighty
Lord knows I’ve been seeking you

You’ve been a blessing to my soul
Your heart is as good as gold
Where have you been all my life
Me or no one else knows

But you’re here now
 And I will always adore you
The magnitude of a good woman
Will bring sunshine to any mans morning
I’m just blessed to have had 
The Heaven’s Rains
To shower me on you.

Dialogue of Souls


Best of friends, for countless years,
we had the best of times.
Now as my eyes are filled with tears,
your soul to Heaven climbs.
The path we take, not always clear,
I feel so lost without you here.
Your last words, prophetic now,
“I’ll be home soon”- you knew somehow.
You left me here, I’m so alone,
but I dreamed Heaven had a phone.
We talked all night, you fell asleep,
I held the line to hear you breathe…

In God's Hands

  I am malleable in God’s hands, 
No one can shape me like He can, 
He never gives me anything that I can’t handle, 
He always knows what He is doing, 
No one can compare to Him, 
He is the father I never had, 
I can truly trust, love, and honor Him, 
Because He made me, 
He loves me, 
And I love Him, 
I will never be able to put my heart into someone else’s hands with such trust!
Because He is love! 
And I am His. 
- Inspired by Jeremiah 18:6 

                                                  
                                                  Jeremiah 18:6 NIV
“O house of Israel, can I not do with you as the potter does? declares the Lord. 
“Like clay in the hands of potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.

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

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!

In This Box

I have asked the mortician to close my box
For in this box lies only the shell you knew
The shell of who I used to be to you all
On my last breath my soul to heaven went

Please remember me alert and breathing
Not in my box without a breath left in me
What is in this box I want no one to view
As my soul is no longer on earth with you

Please go on with your life knowing this
I loved you on earth and will in heaven too
In heaven with others who went before me
I'll be waiting when God calls you to join us

WHISKEY LULLABY

written 17th Sept 2013


             "WHISKEY LULLABY"
                          sung by Brad Paisley and Alason Krass

Just married, he loved his new wife,more than anyone saw
 a day after they where married, he got drafted off to war
Overjoyed to finally return home to his bride
 he walked in, to find she was in bed with another man
With just a slight second, his heart died
 pain overwhelmed his entire soul, he picked up a drink
And started to drink more every day, to try to forget
 as time passed, he drank himself to death, with a note "I'll love her till I die
they buried him beneath the willow, as she watched she filled her soul with regret 
 left to blame herself, she began to drink his memory away
As years passed she slowly drank her pain away
 they found her next to his grave, holding his picture as she passed away
They buried her beneath the willow, and they were together again
 and the angles sang a whisky lullaby
So when you find your one true love, be faithful and true
 for no amount of alcohol will mend a broken heart for whatever you do!
 

 I chose this song for my mother and my father both became alcoholics after they separated and my father passed away at the age of 42years old, my mother still lives but never stopped drinking she will be 58 years old she took off with his best friend from the age of 12yrs old

God Almighty

When I came to you I was broken and frail~Half my mind gone in despair

 Feeling so Low~Like mud on the ground~Wondering if my Joy would ever

 be found~Fighting and resisting at the very Start~then slowly you entered my heart

 Quietly and gently working insid my soul knowing just what you were doing to help me glow

You broke into my soul where I had been suffering the most you cleansed me

and entered me showing me what I needed to see, working endlessley on my soul

you cleansed me and made me once again whole. God almighty you never cease to

amaze me always by my side even when I'm at my worst, loving me endleslly and uncondionally..

You have opened my heart to the beauty again, the beauty of the clouds the beauty of your creations'

The beauty of the rain, the beauty of the thunder, the beauty most of all of your people.

Opened and vunerable I am to you always. Enter me and have me do your will in my life

help me to always follow you in every aspect of my mind, body, and soul with every ounce of me

Silently by my side help guide me in my ways so I do your ways and your will dear god almighty

Walking together down this journey in life nothing can go wrong with you by my side

Hold me and love me in this I pray guide me down the right roads along my way

I want you by my side for the rest of my life, no more going alone on this journey

I need you Lord God ALmighty to guide me ,Love me. and Hold me through my good and bad times..!

First Time

  Is this a dream? Am I dreaming? Feeling your kiss upon my skin. Wondering what tear we're on again.
  Don't go all the way, you might lose something. I'm at the point where I care about nothing. Now we're skin to skin, rushing of blood. Almost as if we're bonded as one.
  It gets intense, that very good feeling. But it's like I'm almost weary. It was great while it lasted, those last thirty seconds. Like a pleasure in heaven.
  Now I want more, that very good feeling, to be loved and accepted. I love him and gave him what he wanted, then he left... We see each other every day and do it.
  A year later he left, and I go through all the painful memories. He was my first, all ways will be.

Sharon

A seventeen year old girl, just beginning to bloom,
A lovely young miss who could brighten a room,
Beloved by her parents and by my young son,
Who was beginning to think that she was the one.
The key to his future, still waiting out there
And he hoped she too was beginning to care.

His dreams and her life were abruptly cut down, 
By a terrible accident, no one could have known
Would have happened so quickly on that foggy night.
The futures for both were put out like a light.
Over and over, I know, in his prayers,
He begged God for the future that could have been theirs.

He went on with his life and his loves were mistakes.
He seemed to get more than his share of heartaches.
If she'd been the one to have been his lifemate
And there had not been such an injustice of fate,
I wonder how better his life could have been
If into his future she'd been woven in.

And then as it happened, his own life was cut short
And so many dreams we have had to abort.
It seems like a part of my heart has torn out.
I'm left here to wonder what life's all about.
But he has been given an answer to prayer
And now she and he have God's heaven to share.

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!

 Loving You is Blissful - My Darling Hubby 

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

 Sparkling amidst the million stars..
 chosen the crazy pal and so life is excellently par.. 

 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:
 Madhavi. Suyog.Pagare

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!

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.

Until we meet again

Just my luck, you made it to Heaven before me.
But you were my taste of Heaven here, so I'll let it be.
This isn't fair that I'm here missing you.
I bet you're up there, missing me too.

Save me a smile and an angel's feather.
I'll get them when we're back together.
Save me a walk down the streets of gold.
I can't wait until I get your hand to hold.

Save me a thousand years to whisper in your ear, 
all the things I should have said, while you were here.
I'll be thinking of you everyday from now til then.
So I'll blow a kiss to you, until we meet again.

the Racist Heaven

As I slashed my wrists wide open
I smiled and could not wait for heaven
I beckoned for my love that a child once knew
I cried as the pain took over

Satan met me at the front door
He slipped on a banana peel that I left from before
I laughed and cried as the tears were of pain
I wished the devil himself would regain
Stand up for those that were cast out of hell
Stand down for those that would set heaven a spell
And relive the anguish of your boycott from jail
And smile as I run my pride though your nails
The ones I used on the lord when he was reborn
When he banished me from home for the belief was not sworn
I care not for you my son of taboo
I die now with you as we kill each other true
Your racist heaven with your laws and your rules
Speak true of your lies as you write another you
And tell your despise to the ones that follow the clue
I die alone for I died with truth
And the crying satan felt my love for him was due
And we both hold hands as we prepare to slip by
Our hearts become one as the racist heaven lets us die

It's Just One Word

 Am I the only one who's feeling there is something very wrong with all of this ,
I can't seem to get anybody to listen not even when I raise  my fist.
    How can they not see what I see ,has everybody lost thier mind I say,
Why can't they see what it is that is making them act this way.
   Have you taken a look around to see  there's something that has changed,
When you look into peoples eyes Lord how you can see the rage.
   No compassion  for thier fellow man as if they have never ever cared,
For the future of mankind and how we all should be  aware.
    Saw a friend of mine the other day he was acting a little strange ,
I can't help but wonder just when , how , and who's the blame.
   This power and greed is consuming us all we just can't seem to stop
Stepping on our brothers & sisters as we  race to the top.
   Where's the love ,the kindness ,the hope and faith  we use to live by,
How we allowed ourselves to sink so low I' will never know why.
    Still I will contunue to spread the word which has always been,
Be good and love one another as you are learning not to sin.
    Please don't be another wreck that has been pushed to the side ,
If you' listen to the one and only word you will know why.
    We will all band together so we can stand  tall and free,
It is one simple word and that is love how could you nor see.

Familiarity

What is it to me
that I cannot place you
in the picture painted by the years
the life has already spent?
Do you merely lurk,
and leave at a much later time?
Or, 
maybe
you are staying
because 
    you 
        are 
           meant
                to 
                   stay.

Then,
stay.
If you may.
I pray.
While I find a place (for us)
in the picture of eternities,
the gods must be 
hiding, 
conspiring;
themselves amusing.


Ah, the grand scheme of things -
                            a forgetting.
A familiar spirit we feel -
                            a remembering.     


(Note) This piece was inspiredly written for the beautiful souls - even the 
strangers - I have met along the way and will still come upon in my lifetime. To 
each special one, you have stirred quite a familiar spirit within. A remembrance 
of forgotten past, I suppose. Thank you for letting me peak through your 
soul's window. The veil of forgetfulness has never been thin as now to me. You 
have so given me a gift I shall treasure in the moments I may tend to forget 
who I truly am - a being with a soul.

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

Jesus Paid It All


Jesus’ death paid it all!
What have you given in return?
His death on the cross… 
Was from his love and concern!

His life for yours… On Calvary… 
 Has been paid.
His offer of eternal life,
 has been made!

Through God’s word,
 he’s been talking!
And stands at your hearts door… 
 patiently knocking!

Won’t you invite him in?  As your guest?
Then, your life will be totally blessed!

He can bring health and
 healing to your bones!
He can bring his love to
 your family and home!

“Come unto me.” Is the 
  the master’s call.
Won’t you come to him now?
  One and all?

He’s here right now! 
 In this very place…
And extends to you his 
mercy and grace.

Won’t you accept him today?
He loves you more than words can say!

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.

The Harvest

I would that your need
be to find the path straight
that your hearts rise above
and be harvested in glory

I would that the seed
Which was planted with love
be fruitful by faith
and be harvested in glory

I would from the start
that your minds be the same
as the standard you were made by
and was worthy of me even then

I would that your innermost parts
do awake and remember my name
and the hope therein gave I
of glory that transforms the children of men

Whereby understood, when this truth be told
will the doors of my trapped unlock
For the day of my wrath is ever so near
and the time of the harvest of glory

Seek the sheep that are without the fold
for the shepherd soon comes for his flock
Seek the lost that his voice when they hear
may come in and be harvested in glory

For behold I give sight
when the hearts for old reins make amends
for I would that you yet see my face
and great be the harvest of glory

For my flames scorch the night
till they destroy its end
till my waters of Life flow with grace
and you that are mine shall be harvested in glory...


Matt 24:30-31:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
                          and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the
                          Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great
                          glory. And he shall send his angels with a sound of a trumpet,
                          and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
                          from one end of heaven to the other

My Lord

A coral bay, a sandy beach,
Not too far, within my reach.
Palm trees sway in a cool nights breeze,
Alone with my God, all at ease.

Time alone, time to wander,
God's creation, so much to ponder.
Look up, look up, into deep black skies,
See His creation before your eyes.

The planets, some you cannot see,
Uncountable stars  just for you and me.
The Heavens He made by His own hand,
It's where you will find His throne will stand.

Standing here, on a beach,so small,
Hard to believe I have worth at all.
His wisdom, His love, compassion and grace,
Are mine for the asking as I run the race.

My prayers are asked every night and day,
They go heaven bound, there is never delay.
He is never too busy to hear my plea,
He is always ready, just for me.

He gave me a gift, more precious than gold,
He gave me a wife to have and to hold.
He gave me our daughters to love and adore,
He gave me His love, I could ask for no more.

His love He poured out, more than I ever deserved,
For in those days, Him, I did not serve.
I never gave thought to church or to God,
I know now the wrong path that I trod.

Looking back to my lifes beginning,
I never gave thought to if I was sinning,
I struggled through life, like many folk did,
Not knowing, from Him, that nothing was hid.

My past is not shameful, except for the fact,
That love for the Lord was all that I lacked.
He is Alpha, Omega, He is love everlasting,
I now know His love, it comes without asking.

He is Alpha, Omega, beginning and end,
He is love everlasting on Him I depend.
He is my Father, to Him do I cleave,
He is God Almighty, in Him, I believe.

In the twilight of years and so many a tear,
He has waited so long for me to see clear.
I'm ever so happy that He didn't pass by,
I hope that He knows that I'm His 'til I die.

Then, when this life is o'er, my last breath is spent,
I pray to my Lord to be heaven sent.
For since I found Jesus and He rescued me,
I long to be with Him for eternity.

Lifting Me Up

My heart is on Your shoulders,
And You are lifting me up.
With every spoken tender gesture,
I fall a little farther in love.

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.

Forty Lost

Time moves on,
and soon will tell,
when asked for whom
they ring the bell…
 Forty lived
…and forty lost,
you left before twilight.
When it’s half as much,
at twice the cost,
you’ll  bask
in perfect light…
We live in castles
…made of sand,
we come as a stranger,
but leave as a friend…
Remember now,
your last first kiss,
those times will be
profoundly missed…
Your smile indeed
could cast a spell.
You learned to
play a bad hand well…
With all our hopes
and dreams in tow,
we are old too quick,
and wise too slow.
Life’s an elaborate
complex dance...
Would you live again,
if you had the chance?

A Wonderful Place

" A Wonderful Place "

Heaven is A Wonderful Place as we have all been told
the streets and sidewalks all are made of jewels and of gold
his real truth and wisdom are precious and abound
eternity with our God in Heaven is where it all is found.

God's word is quick and heartfelt and is always sure
having all the graceful power to make our lives so pure
by God's precious spirit his faithful words are swung
taking all of our sins away so sin will all be done.

The sick and blind with the lame all healed
God's love and warmth is all he wields
he has the power to make one whole
his truth and love will heal your soul.

Have faith and belief in God's mighty word
his calling voice by all is heard
its true through him that you will find
a warm heart of love and peace of mind.

Heaven is A Wonderful Place as we have all been told
the streets and sidewalks all are made of jewels and of gold
his real truth and wisdom are precious and aound
eternity with our God in Heaven is where it all is found...

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;
I will give you strength.
Brush it off, my child;
Come and take my hand.
Let me help you up again;
You will be okay.
I have always been with you,
And I always will be.
I am by your side,
But this time,

Heaven

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ 

There is a place called Heaven,
that I hope for everyday.
I ask God to help me be a better person
by following Christ's way.

Somedays it doesn't come easy
to find compassion in my heart.
Or show forgiveness needed
to a friend who has torn it apart.

Jesus never said it would be easy
to pick up my cross each day.
Or remember to be thankful, 
and get on my knees to pray.

He said to trust in His mercy, 
and to give it to others in need.
Because of His Love and Sacrifice, 
of His words I take heed.

For Christ is The Bread from Heaven, 
and we are who He comes to feed.
Take part in His kindness and mercy,
from all sins we are freed.

The gates of heaven are open,
the veil has been torn.
No need to sit in sorrow,
no need to weep and mourn.

Christ has risen, 
Yes, it's true! 
Through Him, all things 
have been made new!

There is a place called Heaven that I hope for everyday.

Benevolent Emotional Rancor

Recanting those memories that we have had, Is all I wanted to do; But, I could feel that they had entirely subsided Deep into my heart, And I feel it will hold the whole life through. Amidst the turmoils in life, I still have those memories; As if they really had aggregated within, Yet, I wish time helps me to extricate, Like a shooting star, hoping to vanish somewhere. No more pains, no more tears Are all I could wish; Because, I really love you that much, Although it hurts me, I need to let go and set you free. Day by day, I storm heaven with prayer, That we'll both find the real happiness; Happiness that is separately in our own, And only heaven knows, When our hearts meet again, never or soon. You must need to know even just through a dream, That I really need your help; Please, come just like a soft and gentle blow of wind, And do whisper into my ears, That I need to be happy; since, God knows what both of us is best. Come and tell me that you also fervently pray, That someday, somehow this emotional rancor of mine; Yet, benevolent will soon be compensated, By someone who will really love me, Love me even more than what you did.

What Will I Do Where Will I Go

 UNSUPPORTED CODE What Will I Do?   Where Will I Go?

What will I do?  Where will I go?
Which direction I’ll take…  I don’t really know!

In just a moment, I lost all,  that I worked hard to get…
I’m thinking of “letting go.”  
But haven’t done it yet…

The things I held so close...  Have all disappeared.
It happened so fast.  It’s kind of “weird.”

Those I call my friends, don’t really know
 what to say.
Most of them shake their heads, and walk away!

I’ve cried myself to sleep many days and nights.
It’s like someone has “turned off the lights.”

The only one I know, that I can turn to, is Christ alone!
I need him to heal my broken heart and home.

Dear Jesus, will you take some time to help me out?
I know that helping people is what you’re about!

Please help me to pick up the 
pieces that are scattered!
Help me to focus on the things in life
 that really matter!

I need to give you, all of my focus and attention!
I need your word to show me
 some clear direction!

You’re the one that I always need to hold on to!
I need to do this, and to completely trust you!

Thank you Jesus for listening
 and answering my prayer!
I’m thankful that you’re someone who really cares!

Thank you for restoring my life,
 that has been “up-ended.”
With your love, my heart has been
 healed and mended!

My Love

Shouts ring hollow on hallowed walls.
Where once she dwelt and bled and died.
Love hangs mute as worn words recall.
There did our love swell as the tide.

Where once she dwelt and bled and died.
Where angel wings fold round our bed.
There did our love swell as the tide,
with tenderness our true vows said.

Where angel wings fold round our bed,
lights of heaven shine from within.
With tenderness our true vows said,
each promise made, in truth therein.

Lights of heaven shine from within.
I glow with pride each thought of her,
each promise made, in truth therein.
Strong feelings deep within me stir.
 
I glow with pride each thought of her.
Love hangs mute as worn words recall.
Strong feelings deep within me stir.
Shouts ring hollow on hallowed walls.

Who's To Blame

I feel tenderness in your words
  As you whisper my name
Softness from your sweet lips
  Caressing every inch of my body
Aching for your love; Helplessly I
  Lie awaiting your gentle touch

Take it, here baby, hold it, 
  Caress it with all your love;
For my heart is now yours
  Sent to you from up above.
Can you feel this love?
  
Are we ashamed as we call
  Out each other’s names?
When will we know whose to blame?
  
This love we share will never compare to any other. 
  Side by side, baby, can’t we see we are meant to be?  

Hold onto to me; I’ll hold onto you
  Forever and ever my love, just
    ME And YOU!!

Our souls have met and become one
  No mask can hide the love that’s
Felt deep inside.

Brought here by fate we stand
  Hand and hand at the beginning of
The road that will lead us to
    OUR DESTINY!!

So now baby, we can say, we are not ashamed
  As we call out each other’s names.

You see my love; FATE AND DESTINY
   Will remain the blame!!

We now know this love we have is true, because it
  Is felt between me and you!!

sweetly living inside warm 
Each heartbeat a mirror bell 
ringing deep reflections draw 
sparkling gold on your beauty

Destiny paints a path colored dream 
holding under a rainbow promise 
Magical strengths in our resistance 
falling under enchanting magic 
Spelling powerful feelings sing out 
soft chanting echoes silver whisper

In the Name of Love

If our love were ever to become a gamble between the gods, And the Lord and the Devil both desired to see us flawed, I would make my plans for deicide and, as a mortal, face the odds. First, I would build you a castle and hide you far away, So no god could find you or take you as his prey. They would have to go through a man if they wanted to get their way. Then, I would fashion a sword of the most wonderful elements, Sharper than Satan’s wit and greater than God’s blessedness, I would wield it into battle and redefine the Exodus. Through the gates of Heaven and across the plains of Hell, I would meet the gods wherever to confront them where they dwelled. Yea, a mortal man I may be, their homes would be expelled. And if I should fail in my quest for our love, The gods would at least regret their gamble thereof, And I alone would stand as the martyr who set you above.

This is the Day

This is the day which the lord hath made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
But we rather be sad in it
We rather hate in it
Kill, Steal and Destroy
Boast about our joy
Money, Cars and Cloths
Tell us you got all the hoes
Why do are women want to be hoes
Why we dancing on poles
Men don’t you know women are a key ingredient to our souls
Women don’t you know you know your worth more than pure gold
Platinum, Crystals, and Diamonds

This is the day which the lord hath made;
We will rejoice and be glade in it.
That is the only way we are going to save our planet
We have to make our way, because we are here to stay
Hold on to what is right, believing in your rights
Love is the only weapon you need to fight
Because This is the Day where everything change
This is the Day where we are only calling on one name
This is the Day where we all get to see them fancy things
This is the Day where there are no more nightmares and only dreams
This is the Day where you will see greener pastures and blue streams
This is the Day where we all are announced kings and queens
This is the Day Heaven begins to sing

William part 1

I ask all to be open minded as I tell the story of my friend,  William .
There are so many prejudice in this World , from color to sex 

To me it has always been the soul , the person inside 
For one that is shallow will not experience life in true blessing 

William my friend was African American , he was fun and personality full of 'I am here "
William was Gay , William disowned , William called "A queer "

Well this is a lesson for all to know
God does not care what color , but the heart , what color it shows .

I had left my 1st Husband , with 2 children I had to support .
I was depressed , felt alone in the civilian World of a sort 

For when I got to Monterey bay , I was on a Military base 
Very shy and recluse , not leaving the perimeter of the land 
I opened such a big door when I left that abusive Man 

I had the tiniest apartment with 2 little rooms , probably 550 sq. feet I presume .
I will never for get the night He came to my door , William ," Girl, lets go dancing 
Let's go explore ! He called me 'The platinum Blonde "

We went out together and danced , he was amazing ! William energized any room . He Lit it Up ! 
For he had something inside his beautiful soul , no money could buy, nor silver or gold.

Well years went by in Monterey bay , I had fallen in love with a man , Lost so much time .

Time went by , after the man broke my heart ,I remember "where is William "
I missed something that lies  deep in my heart . The true Love and friendship of he I craved .

Now this story is long so go to  "William part 2  "be patient , be brave .

'Which is better--To love or not to love--'

Which is better? To love or not to love
(a woman)? To love--and love well--is good
so long they who love love without falsehood
and count the other as their heart's pet dove.
To befriend (her) is better; never shove
a lady-friend into a lover, should 
her virtuous friendship and womanhood 
belie an injury that rob her love. 
However, to love God is best. Not I,
but the claims of this life--O Destiny!--
make it so that men like us must decry
love, and sin, for a life of poverty.
     Although, if God wills it, love will find me
     in heaven's field,--in heaven's golden lea!

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

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."

A Second Chance

For so many years I had my wife
Now it’s sadness that fills my life

I miss that time we would caress 
I miss the touch of tenderness

I talk to my wife every day  
Love is one of the words I say

I loved to smell my wife’s hair
I wish I had a lock of it here 

Your gone and out of sight
To heaven you will be my shining light 

At the end of my life

Let me know direction for my mind needs a goal
Give me peace for my vacant troubled soul
Let me see light because my world is dark
Give me her song and let my spirit hear the hark

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

Perfectly you

You say you aren't perfect,
but look again and behold yourself; perfectly you.
Your tears be heavy-laden with guilt;
also remember, they glisten with remorse.
The sea water of the eye cleanses wounds old
and leads life to the good vulnerability
that teaches humility and belief.

Singing; your voice awakens the dawn
and dancing you set the moon.
Entrancing, you smile
and for a moment I glimpse forever.
Joy's child is your way
and grace is in your name.

Awake in the watches of the night
He watches your panic weeping;
wanting your day to soar 
and set twilight leaping.
Stars twinkle in sympathy,
and meteors lead sight to the other.
Come away with me my love and wink at suns.

My Heavenly Granddaughter

Heaven Leigh Kent,
With whom a lot of my time has been spent,
Non of which I even slightly resent,
I assure you, she certainly thinks I am a gent!

When she was two,
The things we use to do,
Was mostly peek a boo,
And hid and go seek,
I have to admit I’d let her peek!

She use to scratch my face,
In her youthful impatient hast,
But her love would quickly erase,
The scars on anyone’s face,
At least in my case!

When she was four,
She would squeal for more,
When to keep her from bore,
I’d pretend to let her drive my car,
But granny would sure give us what for!

She has beautiful, red hair,
Over other kids gave her what for,
Just a few freckles,
Speckle,
On her pretty little pug nose,
A little sun and it glows,
A little sore nose never blows,
That’s just the way it goes!

When she was about six,
She developed a few neat tricks,
She would sit on my lap,
And say I love you grand pap,
She knew how to draw my love sap,
Between us left very little gap!

Shortly thereafter,
She was my master,
But I knew what she was after,
A trip to the candy store,
 I am certainly shore,
But without her life would be a bore!

Down the toy aisle
Her mixture of style,
A shopping cart high,
She’s the apple of my eye,
Toys and candy,
She’s grandpa’s dandy!
 
She’s now virtually a teen,
But not from grandpa weaned,
She is the pretties thing you’ve ever seen,
She still sits in my lap,
And she still draws the love’s sap,
As we recap!

Now just a little bolder,
With a little of the world to shoulder,
She’s found the world to be a little colder,
Than grand pa’s shoulder, that’s older!

Now my heart shudders,
And My mind stutters,
When I think of when she was first born,
For she gave us cause for great alarm,
Born with a heart defect,
As the doctors inspect,
To see what was needed,
Her life was completed!

She died on the table,
As it was labeled,
For two or three minutes,
She received the death sentence,
As she was carried in the arms of Jesus!


One day in a church at the age of three,
She pointed  a picture of Jesus, out to me,
She said that man carried me, as I looked to see,
That is how we understood it to be,
At the age of three!

She understands how love between humans should be,
She has shown me how love from heaven should be,
My joy, My granddaughter, heart healthy as can be,
My pretty princess, Heaven Leigh,
I am the grandpa of something that’s heavenly!

A promise

Somewhere up above
Beyond the bluest sky
In a heavenly place
We'll have a rendezvous

Someday in that place so far away
You and I will meet again
When my heart will be free
Till then I'll wait for that day

I will tenderly hold you then
I will never let go of your hands
I will hold it tightly in a grip
I will never let you go out of my sight

Somewhere
Someday
I promise I will stay
I'll never go away

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!

Where Wild Violets Grow

Where Wild Violets Grow

Scribbling these verses,
caressing your bare back,
simple rhymes,
flowing from my fingertips.


Scribbling verses,
sprinkling odes to fragrant promises,
your smile lightens the burdens,
off my heavy heart.


Scribbling verses,
soaked in countless kisses,
the moonlight waltzing on your skin.


Scribbling verses,
feeling you,
your love never ceases to flow,


through the streams of my mind,
to a place of our own,
where wild violets grow

captivated

I can't continuously catch this connection
coroscating so cordially as a cure...
Captivating my cranium contemporaneously
contaminating collation of common sense.
I can't think...
And our growing link
makes my heart sink
with your every wink!
Blink... Blink...
Are you reality?
I reach right past self-denial's ruse of
what's real with no rest reeking of regicide
fearing a relapse regarding regression.
Recklessly running rampart racing
to our heart's reunion.
Your soul saying "Speak sonnets of Sensuality".
So sexy yet sensibly sweet...
Seeking to be shown your sentiments.
You're the destination of heaven above.
And I... am in love!

Embrace

They ride the good dragon-cloud towards warm light
While wistful wind was a wrongdoer on the hollow hill
Wrapped woven from the wounds and wrath`s night, 
The wood will wear white woolly witness of the windmill.

Hoarfrost hitch-hikes and hoists with hoarse hood,
Drumming beat of hobble of the army`s fatal feet,
Far away from the glow-worms of their childhood;
Friends fumble the glassware where they might meet.

Falteringly frogs of fancy jump towards the lake’s glass; 
Orphan souls sit on the steps of hope in winter`s time
They scrutinize the frozen sky of hope to find the rhyme 
Of the verse from the other side they want to happily pass.

The Day That Buster Came To Stay

(The Beginning) Many, many years ago – when I was only ten, Times were so much happier - life was simpler then, No problems met with me each day My role in life was to run and play. And destiny was just a word I never used and seldom heard. My youthful days were never spent In worry over food or rent. But fate will always have its say In all things meant to come our way. And something lacking in my life Was often causing major strife. Loneliness would follow me Though kids galore were there to be Playmates during times of need When something caused my soul to bleed Then fate employed parental love And called on heaven up above To let something play the part And still the aching in my heart Well, heaven knew how kids are made And knew what caused my joy to fade. So, early on one winter morn A little spotted pup was born. He’s grown into a faithful friend And many joyful hours we spend Just knowing that the love we share Whenever needed will be there. Dogs are of a special breed And always fill some special need. I'll cherish always that special day - The day that Buster came to stay John Posey 12/04/12

Reaching Heaven

Thoughts of you fill my mind, love
You’re always a part of my passion
When we are apart I’m reminded of a dove
Who has drifted too far from its companion

I miss you more with each passing moment
Sleep will not come for the longing of you
Love so deep and true is akin to an ailment
Your heart and soul are everything I knew

When we have the chance to be together again
There is no doubt that my heart will beat with bliss
For so many months I have only used my pen
To speak to you with all the dreams I miss

Without you here with me, my dear love
My prayers for you reach the heavens above

what God called me to do

Lord you came from heaven to save us from hell,
Among us sinners you chose to dwell,
To give us eternal life you gave your own,
To glorify your father who’s on his throne,
You took the sin of the world upon your shoulder,
Yet our burning desire for you grew colder,
They spit on you, beat you and placed thorns upon your head,
Yet you still loved us when you were dead,
Your love is deeper than the ocean you yourself created,
Love so true because you did exactly what you stated,
Rose again on the third day with complete satisfactory,
You gave us salvation completely for free.


Just so you all know were living in the last days,
So I say to you my friend that you should change your bad ways,
When Jesus comes for the saints the wicked man stays,
Stuck here on earth to suffer through earth’s tribulation faze,
God changes anyone murders, thieves and gays,
If you want to get to heaven just do what the bible says!!!


Being afraid to say I’m a Christian is a thing of the past,
Because now I realize God’s love for me forever lasts,
Being a Christian doesn’t make me shrink or less of a man,
There for I don’t care what you think because I’m a part of Gods plan.
No I’m not perfect yes I do wrong but I know how to repent and keep my faith.
And I ask that you do the same and repent before it’s too late.

The things I love

The things I love

I love, me, the sun in the morning
I love me the moon in the night
I love all he flowers in the meadows
Oh, everything gives me delight
And I love my Vera Rosina
I love everything about her
She’s got everything that I’ll ever need
She beautiful, comes from a one only breed.

I love how the trees reach to Heaven
I love how they dance with the breeze
I love all the birds in the treetops
I love how my life gives me ease
But I tell you, my Vera Rosina
She’s a wonderful, wonderful girl
She makes me feel pure, she makes me feel whole
Whenever I’m with her I come from my soul.

My life is a wonderful, wonderful space
For I have my Vera, a girl with such grace
I have known her forever, and I love her still
I worship my lady and I always will
I love me that power in the heavens
I love how I love my sweet life
Oh, I love my Vera Rosina
She’s my perfect, and beautiful wife.

Death, it is a sad way to go

Death, it is a sad way to go,
to leave this earth, dressed in your Sunday best
While faces surround you with tears
breaking the barriers of their emotions
tearing their hearts apart, looking down
upon my stone face, upon the face, lays a simplistic smile
that shows no emotion, no teeth, no life.
Death, it is a sad way to go.

People hurry, say their goodbyes,
but when your alive,
they never come around, they never call, they never even think
of you and how you are feeling.
While you walk the streets, with a smile on your face,
nothing but knives stick sharpe in my back and gossip
burns a hole in my soul and heart;
but I keep on walking and smiling.
I keep rolling on through like a summer hurricane
tears apart a coastal city in the heat of June weather,
Walking till death comes to shake my hand and grin at my soul.

Then as you lay their in your casket
with a buqouet of your favorite flowers, (Roses and Tulips)
they sit around you, the same faces, the same blind eyes
and they all shed tears and says good things.
Too late for that don't you think?
Death, it is a sad way to go, but what relief you get,
when finally departing in peace and leaving the drama
and careless people in your life.
After I am put six feet under, a week of crying passes,
After two weeks I am lost and long forgotten,
nothing but a stone at my cranium to keep me company
and my new friends, who sleep along next to me.
Dead and forgotten, but the dead never forget their fellow lost souls.
Only the living forget such souls that were so good to them,
now they are gone,
I am gone.
How do you feel, now that I am gone?

Death, it is a sad way to go, but what peace you recieve in Paradise.

Hep birlikte yasanan  yillara

A LETTER FROM HEAVEN

A LETTER FROM HEAVEN


As I was mowing my grass  and thinking how beautiful it was today. 
All of a sudden I heard a voice say it is beautiful here too.
As I looked around I saw nothing, but with a familiar giggle she then said “hey I am talking to you”
Shirley talking to me that could not be.
She giggled again and said “yes it is true this a letter from heaven I am sending you.” 

Tell them I am sending a sign so they will know I am safe and happy.
They will have seen it already if not then soon.

What a beautiful site I have to view, fields of sunflowers all in bloom and roses of ever color hue.
Chuck and Mom and Daddy are here and the rest of the family too.
You should be my angel Debbie in her robe of white and eyes of blue.
Peace and love abound 
Jesus gave me passage safely through and now I am brand new.
I will be waiting for you here with my arms stretched out to embrace you but stay there awhile it isn’t time, your journey is not through.
Love and Peace I send to you. Kisses from heaven because I Love You.

HER - for my sister Love

Hope was crushed

by pregnant dreams

Her... faith forgotten

or so it seemed...

Struggles went unknown

Pain bred unseen

Her... heart beat alone

LOVEs hurt SCREAMS

Gates of HEAVEN opened

ESSENCE flowed through

HER frail life now full

everlasting LOVE ensued

The Son

I was once kissed by the sun
Caressed in oils my breasts bathed free
like growth in my womb
kissing the moon
Capturing my true essence
unmasked, plain, pure

Naked in love my insecurities 
gave birth to my esteem
But then I became free 
from the taunting and ridicule of 
socieity's template of me
by adopting a new personality
One that reflects the real me

I like poetry I like to sing
I understand my spiritual need
I like love
I like the breeze
I like rhythm and passion
and long lasting nights of 
random acts of sensual moments that 
awaken parts of me previously repressed
The love I feel  is so unrest

I was once kissed by the sun
It's power gave me light and enabled my writing to become
spoken words
leaving footprints on the ink in my pen
Some of thoughts escaped through actions of sin
Unspoken words just thrown away 
Never spoken, or written again

Awakened by the sun 
all drenched in it's heat
Praising it's soure of power 
and embracing humility
Giving what I have to give
Learned to let go it's easier to forgive
We strive for riches but lest we forget
the richness of the sun
Each day be thankful for his son

Through thick and thin you helped me

Jesus Paid the Sacrifice

Jesus Paid The Sacrifice! Jesus sacrificed his life for you and me! So we can be with him for all eternity! His life for ours… a ransom was paid IN FULL, This is why I I love HIM so! Upon his head were placed the crown of thorns, Enduring so much shame and scorn. The blood from his body as it began to flow! The pain inside his body, Began to grow! The nails placed in his feet and hands, The pain he went through is hard to understand. His life for ours, is what he gave! His life for ours… Is what he did trade! By Jim Pemberton

How Hard Could it Be Part 1

How hard could it be to take my first step?

“Come to mommy, you can do it.”

“Oh you're home. Hon, look at him go.”

As I take another step, he picks me up.

He hugs me tight but gently and kisses me on the cheek.

I feel so safe, loved and happy. Perhaps that's how it was.

(I really don't remember back that far.)


How hard could it be, my first day at school.

My mom meets me at the front door of the building,

hugs me and says, “How was your first day? Did you have fun today?”

He comes home after a hard day at work and mom says,

“Hi Hon, it was Den’s first day of school.”

He picks me up in his strong arms and says,

“I knew you could do it.” A hug and a kiss on the cheek.


How hard could it be to learn how to drive a car or a truck?

“Den, come with me. Let's take a short ride down the road.”

We both climb up into Dad's blue 1955 Chevy pickup.

He stops on the back road, gets out, comes around and says, “Scoot over. It's

your turn.”

I start the engine, push in the clutch, shift and we start out slowly.

I'm nervous, I speed up, clutch in, shift again.

Oh crap, I shifted into reverse, truck stopped abruptly and backfired.

Dad looks at me, “But you did it.“ He hugs me, a kiss on the cheek.


How hard could it be to go away to college?

I'm so glad she has a phone so I can call my mom and dad.

“Hi Den, how are things going? You've got a B average.

That's great. I knew you could do it. I love you, see you soon.”

“You met a girl? What's her name? Wow, see you soon. I love you”

“You want to marry her? Big step; in Holland? Okay, we love you.”

How hard could it be to have a family?

“Oh, it's a girl. Mireille, that's a nice name.” He hugs me, kiss on the cheek.

“Another girl, Michelle, that's a nice name too.” He hugs me, kiss on the cheek.

“You finally had a boy, Michael, good choice.” Hug and a kiss.

Birthdays, holidays, weekends, visits back and forth, phone calls.

He loves them all, unconditionally. Hugs and kisses all around.


How hard could it be as life goes on?

He watches them grow up, get married and have children.

He loves them all, unconditionally, hugs and kisses all around.

We take short trips and mom and Dad go with us now and then.

We go camping and mom and Dad visit us now and then.

Every time you left, hugs and kisses all around. Always, “See you soon.”

OF a Tree, Thee, and an Angel's Fee

Force feed me the taste of your skin

‘You will have to break my chastity belt wide open now
for I have sold myself into silent slavery to this ….our universal broken heart

even you will have to try hard……to save me now

I cannot recall your sounds…your hand motions 
as they devoured the subtle softness of me 
drew round my curvaceous places in curling ownership
intimacies’ sweetest embrace 

But too…you move to me 
with a ferocity that mowed the grass down  to a short golf course length 
from the living room table where you drew it happening… a hundred years ago

The length of your hair too has been a subject of much debate 
Love
that surging heavenly song...that told our story so well
 
like that movie from long ago about the girl who cut off and sold her hair to buy her love a golden watch fob and chain …the one who sold his golden watch to buy her a beautiful clip pin for her gorgeous long hair 
………………………………..you see how this goes …with true love

We cut off our noses and then turn backs on our faces 
and on each other on Facebook 

Itself the enemy…where only devils and the luckiest of angels spread


Tread on me beloved!
till I am awakened 
to our lips 
 which just now in writing I suddenly can feel meeting again

taste 
smell 
the salted brine of your pure water and sometimes beer soaked self

Is it me you feared 
as you said Good bye?

How little you know me 

like the formation of the first ever green tree grows up one limb at a time 
from a base long song of deep roots and strong center...so beautiful the Hosts stagger before its creation ….Halleluiah
The limbs sprouting forth like the wings bursting out of the flesh of the first angel 
who died in agony as they were formed….exploding from his shoulders
moving her hair aside as the arch of wing thrust like white tree limb from the goodness within
and the reincarnation of true kindness was born to the conscious of itself

so my love knows no limit 
my soul no separation
and my being no longing

Tis Torture and not Mercy

 Tis torture and not mercy. Heaven is here!
  
 Painfully in reach and yet no power is apt to attain thee. 
 
 What shall then quell passions pursuit? 

Oh heart that yearns for thee alas, such arduous love aroused. 

 Thou oh love alone, can satisfy mine soul’s longing.

Mine heart's own song could not yet free itself from the depths of mine desire for thee.

Every hope is but vain indeed.

I muse at thy enchantments and with bated breath whisper thy name. 

Tis torture true not to hold thee,or caress thy tender cheek with withered hand

False hearted thou wert and yet still thou whispered promised pleasure’s untrue

In silence and tears mine days spent  with the bitter-sweet taste of heaven on mine lips 

and arms that shall never forget.

Tis torture and not mercy, Heaven was here!

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!

Together we belong

When I found my true path 
I remember the many wounds
That healed in my heart
And all because I found you.
And in my dream, I could dance
Upon white cotton clouds
In heaven's romance.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.

Your love and warmth 
Help me get through the days
When heavy storms 
And rough trail threatens my faith
And I find that you've carried me all along
Until heaven becomes our home.


As I walked up my path
Found thorn filled, I found the truth,
That deepened the love in my heart
That brought me even closer to you.
And through the tears, in the sweet breeze
Of your loving embrace
I found grace.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.

Your love and warmth
Helps me get through the days
When heavy storms
And rough trail threatens my faith
And I find that you've carried me all along
Until heaven becomes our home.

And in my dream, I could dance
Upon white cotton clouds
In heaven's romance.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
And through the tears, in the sweet breeze
Of your loving embrace
I found grace.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
Together we are where we belong.

'I dream of you in your world far from here'

I dream of you in your world far from here.
To not be there, it cuts like broken glass.
I'd end this pain, my love, had I the brass
to quench my need for you to be so near.
Without you here, I wilt in this austere,
comfortless zone of uncreative mass,
stifled, crushed by the unyielding impasse
of knowing I may never enter your sphere.
Were I a wind--a breeze! a zephyr!--I'd
ride the heavens till I light on your lap
and then there with you forever abide
as if betwixt us there were ne'er a gap.
     I swear; for us,  I'd move heaven and God
     as sure as men do plod...do plod...do plod!

Whispers

Whisper soft a secret song,
Held in a heart so strong.
A glimmer beats ever so light,
A melody that extinguishes night.

Tis not an ode writ on stone,
But one heeds this gentle tone.
How you ask, if not is writ,
Words naught script on paper lit.

Nestled sweet a solemn poem,
Nevermore changing, always home.
On gossamer descent from above,
The gentle refrain of heaven's love.

What Do We Expect As We Seek to Remove God

What Do We Expect, As We Seek to Remove God? As so many people are seeking God’s removal… It’s like anything from him, we’ve given a refusal! Many have tried to ban just the reading of his word! There’s so much truth, just waiting to be heard! Many anti-God societies have quickly formed! Even the ten commandments, are often scorned! We’ve built large cities, many schools, and homes! But when it comes to God, we’ve often left him alone! One can try their best to push God back in the corner! But if you do, things in your life will get “warmer!” The pleasures and truth you seek, will come to an end! And then eternity without God, will just begin! You’ll wish you chose to live for God, that eventful day! You’ll wish that you took the time to study and pray! It’s the word of God that you need to study and read! God knows all about you! And knows your needs! He deserves all of your praise and full attention! We need to seek him, for much needed direction! Please come dear Lord, and cleanse us within! May we humbly confess our faults and sins! We need YOU much more, than words can say! Please be the God we serve! May we start TODAY! By Jim Pemberton

The Name Above Every Name

The Name Above Every Name “ 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11 NIV Christ took the nature of a servant And was created in human likeness. He humbled himself before all; His obedience provided our righteousness. God exalted His humble Son And gave Him The Name Above Every Name. At this name every knee will bow, In heaven and on earth His praise proclaim. Every tongue will confess That Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He glorified the Father above And harkened death’s necessary call. He made us children of God; Changed from slaves to heirs instead. The Name Above Every Name— The lamb of sacrifice to wed. The Name Above Every Name Is upon the lips of His faithful servants, Not through force but love alone; The Holy Spirit's implants. We should be so grateful, That Christ died for us to be saved; That He rose again from death’s pit; Eternity on our hearts engraved. The Name Above Every Name Is to be glorified for all time. Let’s worship Christ and give him thanks, For His love so heavenly divine. Let us shine like stars in the evening sky, So that all who look up will see, The Name Above Every Name, To be worshiped for eternity!

If I die before I wake

As I die he will be with me,
I fell in love he had the key,
And always knelt on one knee.

My last thoughts are of him, 
As the lights go dim,
Life circling on a rim.

All at once we are apart,
The taste is so tart,
It all hits me in the heart.

You are left to live,
My heart your captive,
There is nothing to forgive.

My cheeks blush so shy,
With a tear in my eye,
As I start to die.

Fear not for I am well,
As many up here can tell,
It is not quite hell.

As I look from above,
kissing the forehead of my love,
I wonder what he dreams of.

I look at him so fondly,
his lips curve so grandly,
as he sleeps so soundly.

I'm like a hummingbird fluttering over his bed,
I wish to be with him but I am dead,
My life over and has fled.

I fear for my love for he is kind,
Strong handsome and well lined,
But now I leave him way behind.

Finding love is like a quiz,
Never knowing what it is,
He needs love from a heart as strong as his.

Life found in a Dream

Life found in a Dream 
Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
                                     This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. Many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasure that are a wonder to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you can find rest, for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago prepare The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all a long time ago and I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please live inside of me until the end. I sow the seeds and when the harvest comes you will know where it can from. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

All I Need Is You

I don't need any money,
I don't need fancy shoes.
I don't need to buy happiness, 
'Cause all I need is You.

I don't need expensive clothes,
I don't need things to choose.
I don't need five-star meals,
'Cause all I need is You.

I'm smiling here so wide;
I feel like I'm brand new.
Today is the start of something big
'Cause all I need is You.

My soul is eternally fulfilled;
My heart is being led through.
I don't need anything else,
'Cause all I need is You.

Weep and a Moan

Watching the sequence of sound coming out of your mouth...
But the screaming is too loud.
I can speak,
But my brain doesn't want to.

I closed the door.
Silence called for me.
Should I cry or should I run after her?

What have I done to you?
but love you uncontrollably.

Shes then left speechless.
It looks like shes out of breath,
but really I broke her.

She was fragile.
So innocent.

Run, Just run.
A gun raised..
up to her mouth.
And a taint on her heart.

I Rejoice In Knowing God

I Rejoice In Knowing God!

I will cry out to God with my voice!
I take safety in him and rejoice!
I shall seek him in the day of trouble!
He’ll pick me up, when I stumble!
I know that he listens, and is always there!
I shall seek each day, alone in prayer!
I shall remember the Lord’s faithful deeds!
He gives me strength, and meets my needs!
I meditate on his words, and wonders performed!
He picks me up, when I feel defeated and scorned!
He is God and shines with an awesome brightness!
He brings everlasting love, peace and kindness!
Behold!  He is God!  His power is demonstrated!
His beauty among the heavens, has been demonstrated!
He is God!  And shall forever reign supreme!
He is my God!  My righteousness and everything!

The Poets I Hope to Meet in Heaven

I pray that in my Eternity,
I'll meet Shelley, Poe and Emily
That we'll all sit down at a table round,
And at length discuss our Poetry!

And Longfellow, lest we forget
Lord Byron, Shakespeare, and beloved Keats!
If I prove their favorite Poet,
I could accomplish no greater feat!

For all my many silly musings,
This one I covet above the rest
For my Soul's toil- finally proving
That the Masters love me best!

*My rhymes are rather choppy and will need revising a some point, but I wrote It just now on a whim ;) Also, I am open to new title suggestions; I struggled to conjure a fitting one

*** Here is an alternate version suggested to me by Delysia Hendricks. This sweet soul reworked my poem and I am posting it so the two can be juxtaposed. Please feel free to comment and say which one you prefer and why. Be as candid as you want; constructive criticism is ALWAYS welcomed and appreciated. Thanks, and a BIG thank you to Delysia for her revision! Here is her rendition:

I pray in all Eternity 
masters Poe and Emily 
Longfellow, Shakespeare and Shelley 
would seek me out 
to hear me spout 
not theirs but my own poetry 

The humble Keats 
would kiss my feet 
his favorite poet of them all 
they'd all but swoon 
and bow and croon 
midst the mightiest I'll stand tall 

*Let us know what you think, PLEASE! Pretty, pretty please with sugar on top? lol ;)

Not Too Late

There's a ghost hiding in the past
there's a boy wishing it has last
all these secrets stop the seting sun
all the love has grown, but never said
and he wishes he could've told her what she meant
he wishes he could've said how he felt

But it's not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

There's an angel looking down
There's a boy without a frown
all this hope brings the rising sun
all thsi love we wish we had sent
he can feel she's in his heart
and will enver let him fall apart

"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

He remembers 
talking o nteh couch feeling safe
he remembers writing a poem and her saying its great
he remembers
how he cried wehn she didn't open her eyes
he remembers
fearing things he can't describe


"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

Soundless Sleep

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Will God accept me and want to keep?

Will my kingdom of glory have a warm soothing touch?
Will my body be cold, my spirit be hushed?

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Wil God accept me and want to keep?

Will Jesus be crying,begging for my salvation?
Will my heart have scorn and reject His invitation?

Will I enter gates of paradise onto God`s throne?
Wil I turn away shamefully and die alone?

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Will God accept me and want to keep?

Will I repent and cleanse my sinful being?
Will I continue to flee from "Gods presence" not seeing?

My God and savior awaits my final toll,
His patience caresses my newly saved soul.

My rest in heaven will not be a sound sleep.
My God will awake me.
My soul He shall keep.

Das Ein Mannlein


Das Ein Männlein

The silent echo reflects through the lodge,
Ein Männlein Steht im Wlade ganz Still und Stum…
Repeating itself in the young boys head.
He is not yet a man, but stands proud enough to be,
Coming back here to relieve himself of his past.
Crying out as he reaches the splintering and tilted door.
The memories of the cold, the blistering cold overpower him.
He spends time collecting himself as the moon moves across the sky.

He had been here with his family-
Says the toppled dining room table.
He also wasn’t the only child in the lodge-
Says the curled up paper dolls in the fireplace.
There was music- Ein Männlein Steht im Wlade ganz Still und Stumm…
Echoes the toppled ivory-keyed piano in the corner.
There was a war, as the Russian Graffiti on the wall complains.
The crashed bomber-plane with the seat full of bones assures that fact.

He came back to the rotting lodge in the forest
Back to the overgrown pile of shambles to find something
As he digs he picks objects out of the rubble, a boar’s head, jewelry, dog-tags,
And finally the thing he seemed to have been searching for.
A baby’s bathtub, with a scrolled handle, stares at him through the dust.
What happened to the other child?
She still has all of her baby teeth in her sweet little baby head.
She’s been sitting in that bathtub ever since that horrible night.
When she was boiled to death by hungry war criminals.

We All Soar

" We All Soar "

Through time we all journey and space We All Soar
we can have our desire and everything more.

God’s heaven awaits us with his eternity gift
from earth up to heaven our life’s will all shift.

This is the most beautiful place where the universe ends
amid all of God’s glory where our real love begins.

We will have no expectations and be rid of regret
for here in this moment all our needs have been met.

Our earthly possessions are all laid to the side
they will have no place here where God does not hide.

Surrounded by shining stars our love at last blooms
as the birth of the planets gave life to the moons.

Through space we all journey and time We All Soar
with God in his heaven its him we adore…

For Rachael - a reposting from 2010

Earth of gray,
Something dreadful on the horizon looms.
There is no black and no white today,
Laws exist but justice is doomed.

Morality is labeled religion,
And must be separated from state,
Whose own religion is political correctness
And determining God's fate.

Oh heaven rain down on us,
We are tasting your tears.
Yes we've become that bad,
Confirming your fears,

That what has been done ,
is being done again,
Those lessons taught,
coming to naught.

Judges and laws make it legal,
to be rid of your innocent babes,
Under a symbol of the eagle, 
God's loving justice betrayed.

Racheal you cry the tears,
that now only heaven supplies,
because ours have dried,
In the dust of our alibies.

Excuses and lies are linked,
As you and I know well,
The truth is all but extinct.
Truth is foreign to hell.

Oh heaven, look down on this world of gray.   
Something dreadful is watching and looms.
Is there nothing left but to watch and pray,
While Rachael wails by the dumpster tombs?

The Blinds and Pane

Through the dark still summer's night,
'bove waves of sea-green foam,
speeds a beam of dim moonlight
that's left its lunar home...
Easily it makes its way,
as nature was intending,
through Heaven's gate
its path is straight,
not circular or bending.
Between the stars, and fields of grain
it sets the world a glow,
as it slips between the blinds and pane
of a single house below...
It lands upon a snuggled pair,
for its path was true (and chosen).
A kiss they share, their bodies bare
they're lovers interwoven...

Juliet's Plea

~“Tis torture, and not mercy. Heaven is here
Where Juliet lives, and every cat and dog
And little mouse, every unworthy thing,
Live here in heaven and may look on her,
But Romeo may not."
- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, 3.3

Juliet's Plea

Dost thou deem, heav'n only rises with the corpse
upon the last sweet breathe of virgin light
as face dost pale to pearl and roses leave my lips tonight
Romeo, my living eyes knew naught your purpose.

In sooth, I thought thee dead on that black night
and so, no other earthly joy could stay my heart
but heav'ns had we all, before this sorry plight
pray pardon love, I would nay have thee depart.

Abide, abide my love, my Romeo, alas...
by your leave, I hold St. Peter’s gate op’ for thee
And verily, I wait for time is naught in death 
and thee, my love, my Lord, are all to me. 

*Their love and their deaths were a scandel.

DRUNKEN THOUGHTS

I love you Cinderella look at how you work so hard
I wouldn't give you the glass footwear  but I would surly
give you the world and heaven above I can see you
in the clouds,I will spin you on the clouds until rose 
peddles rain off of your pink beauteous immaculate 
dress as I bless you with the best you have been 

taken out of me you are my rib we are one soul mates
breathing in heaven adam and eve for you I wear my 
heart on the sleeve of my soul together we are whole
storys of bliss untold the times you let me unfurl  in you
like love notes burnt in sensual Erotic ecstasy  In your 
castle you lay next to me in dream lands of ecstasy while

your supple skin caresses the sensitive parts of me in
streams of heavenly fluff as you blush I gently defeat your queen
and diamond with a hand of king and  ace as I move fast 
paste  through your moist inner embrace face to face gazing
into bond fires of fire works

Honey you are my  Cinderella......

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

Close Your Book

Close out your open book of love, life and the past. Go ahead laugh at your mistakes, you can’t change them.

The lessons are in the problems made, don't be enslaved by your pain, there’s nothing gained.

Forgive those who made it so hard to be forgiven, their living, moving on without looking back all smiles while you’re all tears.

Don’t be overcome by despair or grief, letting go is your relief of dreams, love and happiness, to pursue peace, to be satisfied with yourself. 
Learn to love yourself.
A mission made alone leave room for open thoughts and your tears are born free, cleansing the soul of impurities of the heart, where compassion starts to grow. Moving towards the sunshine that sets in the eyes.

Chapters read, pages turned of life, love, loneliness, lost hope of dreams, dreamt so pleasant.

Hell bent. Could never been heaven sent or thoughts heaven spent. Pain never the same three times past. It won’t last, healing is a process. In time a finer wine.  Bitter sweet.
What is the material of love made of?  Left overs when pain is manufactured.

What’s left?

A side road open by pain, a next chapter to be made. 
A lesson learn, when does a new life gets a turn? And when do we get to turn the pages of time to look back and close our eyes to dream of lost dreams of rainy days and happiness.
Chapters read seems endless, books of the past to be closed learning to deal with things, letting go. 

There will be a happy ending!

MY TEACHER!!!

                             “A teacher, taught our ignorance the path to civilization,
respect all.”

                                                                                         
                Felix. O Joseph

MY TEACHER!     

 

Am a poet, true you taught me

Flourishing in knowledge am like fountain

Empowering me, you I climbed mountains

I command, you made me captain

My crudeness, your rod refined

Your white chalk, brightened my ignorance

Idle fingers, your instructions gave a job

Enduring patience, you guided my steps

Through life’s stepping stone

My home laid the stones you built to a citadel

Worth in much, my value you enhanced

Who am I, without you?

Yes! A tower alluring universal appeal

 

Contempt as leprous, before all you seem

Yet all crave of you as a need

A profession, disdain will not touch

In their hapless myopia, all forget you

A midwife and nurturer of many a profession

With peanuts, your welfare is gratified

Hastening your demise

 A  Quick trip to heaven for a reward

Must your reward ultimately be celestial?

Alas! So is the expectation

Be told! Your heaven stars here

 

Giving your all, civilization is celebrated

Yet you are empty as castrated

Unfair has never fair to you

From scum, comes you gratification

Your attraction, a distraction of the past

Abused, muzzled, and trampled

Little wonder, your strike cripples

Yet, for love, you are passionate to teach

An inner beauty your travails cannot extinguish

What a consistent specimen to service humanity

 

Truly, your profession is noble

Teachers are not made, but are born

Rare in trait, next to none

Your inputs, speaks like evidence

Material wealth, crumble before your worth

Kings and and nations must sing to your praise

Twenty one gun salute, an army parade, cant make up

My teacher! We know your worth

Dear teacher, we feel your pain

My teacher, not long your reward will rain

Brace up, and enjoy gain

Your due season, always must reign

You are never fake, just knowledge you bake

If I rule the world, you I will take

My teacher, I love you

Sincerely, our love appreciates you.

Life's Difficult Situations


Life can bring many difficult situations!
Often, there’s really no explanation!

No matter how smart or how wise,
Things can take us totally by surprise!

We can often find our life off course.
Many times, being driven by a “dark force.”

I know that it’s hard to know what to do.
Especially with what you
 may be going through!

I can’t think of all the right words to say…
To help you make it through another day!

But there’s someone, I can ask you to turn to!
He loves and is most concerned about you!

His name is Jesus!  The almighty God is he!
He’s committed to you now!  And for eternity!

He’s the one that you can trust and lean on!
And is someone that you can
 certainly depend on!

Won’t you give him an opportunity to help you?
He reaches out his hand!  Because he loves you!

He is the source with an eternal heavenly treasure!
He can completely fill you! 
 Beyond measure!

The decision is yours!  A choice to be made!
There’s nothing for Jesus what’s worth the “trade!”

He’s everything that any of us can ever think of!
And can do more for you!  Than you ever dreamed of!

He’s the alpha and omega!  The beginning and the end!
Won’t you allow him to be your
 savior and friend???

Am I Still Forgiven

I did it again; I need forgiven.
Will He still forgive me even though I've fallen before?
I've fallen into these same sins countless times before;
I still haven't learned my lesson.
I am an ignorant hypocrite.
Am I still forgiven?

My Goodbye To A True Love

My Goodbye To A True Love

How could you have left me?
I never had the chance to say goodbye
I never had the chance to tell you how I felt
How much my heart will break without you in my life?
You had so many qualities God wants in a person
A golden heart that shined with love and caring
You had a smile that infected everyone you met
Your spirit shone like a beacon in the midnight sky
I am sure that God had plans for you
Otherwise he would not have taken you so soon
I am sure that you are in Heaven with other angels
Your memory will live in me and everyone who ever met you
Maybe one day God will look at me and decide that you and I were soul mates
He will see that I belong with you and He will take me in His arms
Holding me until you and I can be together again
I will take you in my arms and gently kiss you
And that will be the moment I will know that Heaven truly exists

He would take her to heaven if she chose to go

if she had a solution he wanted to know,
in a while it would be in his head.

All her world is a place for the unholy dead
she might answer his question two times,
in a while he might see, but will lose it instead
holding out for an answer that rhymes.

she might answer his question, and answer it twice,
"yes I love you but don't want to go,"
so he holds out much longer because of the price
of the things that he never should know.

"Yes I love you but it's not time for me to leave,"
she has told him, but didn't explain,
"Love is something you never should know nor believe,
unless you are a sweet summer rain."

Yes she told him, but didn't tell all that she knows,
he can't see how she loves him so much,
like a sweet summer rain she appears and then goes
to the heaven he wants her to touch.

He can't see how she loves him, his heart is so blind,
nor that they are in heaven--but how?
And he wants so to touch her, and then he will find
they're together in heaven right now.

How they got to heaven, she said time and again,
"I have loved you much longer than me,"
and together in heaven, they see how love's been
for as long as a true love can be.

She has loved him much longer than sweet summer rain
and before she was ever a child,
for as long as a true love that's hard to explain,
from where-ever a true love is filed.

And before she was young, in her place of the dead,
they were younger than love ever knows,
and where-ever love is, in the heart or the head,
they've gone into where-ever love goes.

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.

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!

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.

love made in heaven

                                       (3/8/13)

The angels gathered in heaven to witness our wedding day
For this was a match made in heaven as they came together to pray
Long before our births-GOD had made this plan
And he had all the angels give a helping hand.
Both of us was born with a half filled heart
For the other half “was completely torn apart”.
He showed us the aches and pains of how love can be
But little did we know- it was part of our destiny.

We both had a part that we knew would never give in
And each battle we fought we would always win.
We knew that one day we would meet our soul mate
And in this belief we had a lot of faith.
The LORD chose our meeting to be an accident that we did not foresee
For he left it to the angels for you to come to me.

Who would have thought that two cars colliding would send our hearts flying?
Never would I have believed in love at first sight, but you captured my soul
And sent my heart in flight.
Two years together and it’s now our wedding day, and this is the moment
Of which I had always prayed.

A Forever Dream Sleeps Beauty

I went to the little islands today 
under the evergreen fir tree, magic 
Sang, sitting on a large rock enchanting 
over looks the lake love, will you sweet babe 
Deny me as just one guest following 
dreams listening to songbirds in sweet song
someone who shares this one view I lay back

A clear blue sky with fluffy ivory 
white bleached clouds thoughts stirring tunes playing 
Dreaming inside ocean waves thoughts drifting

Ten by ten a fish jumps up and plops
rippling rings forever circle hope
deeply thoughts sailing always my strength 
Dancing whispers inside a breeze warm
silently loving best memories
Those in my life dream angel were made
within this one spot I kiss honey
Golden leaves now scattered on the soil 
beauty I will never forget you 


10 syllable counts by 10 equals one in a hundred 
9 syllable counts by 9 always and forever holds a dream on that cloud

For now Ill be brave and sing you my death song

Ive seen the past in the back of my eyes
Ive lived mylife reaching toward the skies
Memories flash by and make me smile
Im looking atthe end that coming in a short while

Ive suffered pain and grief enough for two life times 
So I welcome the angels songs and harp chimes
Ill be traveling to heaven here I know I belong
For now Ill be brave and sing you my death song

Ive tasted the finish but now I fear not
God is on my side and I love him alot
I have laughed with the reaper as he told me his grim joke
Were not old friends but strangely now Im his kinfolk

Ive suffered pain and grief enough for two life times 
So I welcome the angels songs and harp chimes
Ill be traveling to heaven here I know I belong
For now Ill be brave and sing you my death song

I know fullwell that I cannot escape my demise
Just acceptmy fate is what everyone has cometo advise
For now I exist on the tears of those who weep
They give me love and hope that I can forever in my soul keep

Ive suffered pain and grief enough for two life times 
So I welcome the angels songs and harp chimes
Ill be traveling to heaven here I know I belong
For now Ill be brave and sing you my death song

This is for all the people who Ive known and who I dont know that have stared at death  and been strong.

All My Life

All my life I would spend here with you -- Living each day like a new dream come true. All of my days I would spend by your side Laughing at teardrops we’ve already cried. All my time would be yours to command – We’d live in our own wonderland. If I were an angel, and days, -- precious few, And heaven would let me, I’d spend them with you. All the promises made would come true, And every tomorrow would find me with you. When sunset had told us that daylight was through, I’d spend all my nights making sweet love to you. All my time would be yours to command – We’d live in our own wonderland. If I were an angel, and days, -- precious few, And heaven would let me, I’d spend them with you.

God Gives His Very Best

God Gives His Very Best! God loves YOU! And always gives his best! He offers his love! Why settle for less? He provides everything you’ll ever need! And has given his word to direct and lead! He gave his son to be sacrificed for us! And asks us to give him our heart and trust! His son came to you may have life eternal! So that your name can be in heaven’s journal! Won’t you take this time, and accept him? There’s no reason to refuse and reject him! Won’t you allow his presence to fill you? Before the problems of life “overwhelm” you! He’s God! He can do more than what you can think of! And he loves you more than any words can speak of! By Jim Pemberton

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.

Dear Father of the Nation

You lead this nation to hold hands;
You inspired peace, even on foreign sands.

You are the world’s most respected man;
You’ve encouraged dreams, and the words: “I can”.

Now that you walk on Heaven’s shores;
And live in a home with God’s hand-made doors;
We pray, that we can make you look down and smile;
As we pass on your legacy, through the generation aisle.

Dear Nelson Mandela, may peace now be with you;
And thanks for your love;
From: A global family, missing You.

Calling Out

The shadows over take my mind at times

but your love stands so true for me

it takes care of the pain I feel

but when the shadows call it seems so loud

when your soft whisper is covered by clouds

Why so faint is Thy voice for me

did I fall to hard inside this hole



Do the clouds stand so close for a reason

let me out of this season of darkness

let me hold Thy hand inside mine

keep me warm and fill my heart



I love the way you touch my face

when the tears fall and you open your warm Embrace



Your truth is all I need to live

a true life for all to see

your hand and love guiding me



But I can't walk this road alone

I need to hear your voice inside

I need your touch so very much



I see the pain and feel it to

I need your love to lift the blue's

Take me now and use my life

Help me Lord, to escape the strife.

Just A Woman

As a woman, I am vain. I saw myself being loved and adored, without thinking that illusion is like a ROSE - it only lives for a short time. You talked to me about your love and made me feel so special. With your words you hypnotized me and made me go into a daze. I imagined myself being in heaven - a heaven so blue with only you. Taking advantage of my daze, you said, let me kneel so I can adore you. Seeing you on your knees - I gave you a kiss. I kissed you with fire, I kissed you with passion. It's not your fault and it's not mine - for love and passion are not a crime. I have to confess, that a kiss of passion - even if it almost drives you insane - it's the greatest pleasure you can feel, when two people feel the same. I'm just a woman - what do you know? If I'm having a dream, it feels so real. So why don't you come and awaken me and make my dream become real...

My vacation to heaven

My dream vacation if it could ever be a trip to heaven to see someone very special 
to me. To enter at heavens gates I'd feel the sun's warmth on my skin, the air so 
clean, and with the touch of your hand my heart unbroken again, no more rain the 
tears would have end. We could sit by the waters edge and talk once again like 
how it once had been. I could tell you of my journey and while laughing at your 
grin I would be so ever grateful just being with you again. We could visit for a 
week or so then you would remind me how I had to go. Back to the place from 
where I belong and back to my children’s loving arms. A vacation with you would 
be just that but a dream for in heaven is where you are and here is where I am 
meant to be.

Pardon and Mercy Cry Out in the Deep

I stood on a gigantic branch that hangs over the great big ocean
that spans across the depth and width of this earth and stretched forth my 
hands. I reached towards the heavens and cried out to the almighty 
God to save his people from the terrible wrath to come.

It was not a cry for vengeance; it wasn’t a cry of pain, 
It wasn’t a cry of bitterness or anger, but a cry for pardon
and mercy that sank deep within my guts, 
resonate throughout mountains, valleys
and plains then filtering into thin air.

Series of cries rushes through the leaves;
They evaporate in the atmosphere and filled the clouds with rain.
I could hear voices thundering in the ocean,
Beating and riding upon choppy waves.
Voices of the young and old rushes through the air
Voices of the motherless and fatherless, triggered desperation
Voices of starving widows weep for compassion
Voices of strangers and wounded warrior crying out for help. 
I could not see them, I could not touch them but I could hear them.

I walked towards the last pinnacle on the branch,
And remained silent while staring at the clear blue sky, 
when suddenly I felt empowered by a strong presence that stood beside me.
It held me by my hand and took me across the great big ocean and seated me upon a rock .

It pointed in four directions, and cried out in a loud voice.
Then places its hands upon my head and said
“child I have seen what they have done, and I have heard your cry,"
you are under my covering and no harm will ever come to you.
From now on you shall be my head, and you must go wherever I send you.
You will take my message of mercy and forgiveness to the four corners of the globe.

Those who persist in their evil ways will perish in their own wrath, 
but those who will repent of their evil ways will be granted pardon and mercy.
 It took me back to the tree and cut all the branches, 
the only branch that remained was the one we stood on and hangs over the ocean. 
It says pardon and mercy cry out in the deep,go and see to it my dear. 
It places a book and gold pen in my hand then disappeared.

                                                                     ©2014 Christine Phillips

'Araby' revised

Setting: a cafe, chamonix, in hand a tea.
Across- a woman, seated, not seeing me.

Embarrassed I am,
that I, a questionable I, 
like a lamb: 97 and 1 kilogram,
am engulfed by her,
like Noah by heavanly mer.

Can I help it?- No!
That this Helen
this doe 
or maybe Annabel of Poe
has transfixed me so
No!

For she, unbeknowest to anyone but me,
has -- like a jockey to horse--
narrowed my vision, my every decision.

My goals, my independent roles,
are all now but foes
Dürers'crows
to that of this woman,
to that of this Syren;
A homeric vision calling my name,
my thoughts [set completely in frame].

For she is Femme French,
whose lip, whose tongue, whose
unequaled gaze,
melts hearts, muffles minds, and
spirits sets a daze;

She is a picture Romaine-
a poetic refrain-
a Cloud Loraine- 
Tout l'univers(se), turning perverse-
all those once sane.

And when you, pardon- she
speaks; «please, more tea»
she, unknowingly, speaks to me,
wow, she trully speaks to me. 

Votre langue francais,
what can I say.
We in the west, at our best
butcher and hack at our speach,
yet you- lyrically spue- a harmonious
coo,
a ventricular breech....

Our « (c)(h)(o)(c)(o)(l)(a)(t)(e), »
americanized, anglasized,
Is not as sweet as your---
« chocolat »--- taste that
mmmm-hmmm
tis better, the way you pronounce every letter
as in decrouver, or illuminer.

To think, that this, your verbal kiss, 
turns me so amiss.

But lets ((focus))- back to the Now,
sitting in chair, starring at her hair-
tied back, pulled back, let's get abstract:
lips parted, bangs parted.
Her cheeks lifted- my heart uplifted.
Facial confusion!
Her eyes whisper, « mister, »
maybe sinister?
Who knows, maybeee... the nose!
Striking a pose-
Running, twitching, creating true woes-
in a heart that weeps, reeps, but rarely sows.

Now you can see what she does to me.
my mind is adrift, but who cares- What a Gift!
To be lost in her presence- a humble
peasant- in the present is a present.

So- I'm sitting in a chair,
staring, glaring, intimately at her,
seeking, searching, for our eyes to
meet, to greet, in lustful heat,
for her to return my gaze
and to be lost in that haze till the
end of my days....

But wait....    What is this.      
Something is amiss.
A realization, a boner?
OH GOD....
I have a boner...
shit. I'm just another creepy loner.

Heaven's Calling

After all the moisture
has evaporated from your body
and returned as precipitation
After love made in the rain
and quiet storm has been played
When desire loses its yearn
when passion transforms
into a vehicle that takes
us through the years
Commitment replaces
our faith, and our fears
come to terms with living
without one another
When we finally come to rest
and the next dimension is
ushered  in, you'll be 
reigning over me.
An atmospheric process
with heavenly properties.
Rain  on  me
Completely rearrange
and restack me.
Take me apart like Legos.
Scatter me all over the floor
Rebuild me with
 Guinness record
   determination.
Make me your toy
Play with my anticipation
and energize my heat
let me be a part of
your ninety-eight degrees
Drench me completely
Yes, Indeed, overtake me.
Revitalize so this feeling
moves through us like
seismic activity against 
Lego   mansions 
Obliterated and recreated
Your motion has me going places
Next dimension beckons
while being a witness for your body
Reign over me with 
an evangelical quality
Let me be your 
  Heaven's Calling

Lovers Apart

A love as sweet as the promise of heaven
Imperiled destruction as never been seen
Like the ever present fear of Armageddon
Full blossomed to explode with feelings pristine

Would you be willing to accept this fate?
Or endure the longing forever postponed
And wait in line at the pearliest gates
Where angst expectations are accident proned 

Everyone lives for the eye blinding glance
That causes the heart uncontrollable swells
But it’s hard to trust the potions of chance
That could cure the being of thirst quenching spells

In having to alter the passage of will
The curse and the worry of dying alone
Is broken assuring the outcome fulfills
The heart of the lover who braves the unknown

I’d forfeit heaven for the woman I love
If it meant that she could take my place
The earth and its stars way up above
Amazing together and never a waste

Conditioned you stay just a little bit longer
And shelter these words within your heart
I love you for loving me deeper and stronger
On heaven bound chariots set to depart

When A man falls From Grace

When a man falls from
Grace,
He loses his link to God.
When a man falls from
Grace,fierce battles he
Encounters.
 Raging storm strikes,
His soul is ensnared,
He gets blurred visions,
The enemy waxes 
stronger.
When a man falls from
Grace its like two-edged
Sword-a weapon of death 
And life.
When a man falls from 
Grace,the Holy Spirit 
Departs;joy is lost-sadness
Creeps in.
  Without authority,power 
Is absent.
   The grace of God keeps
The soul-never lose it!!!

You Are Alive

Even when we can't feel Your grace,

Natures Dream

        I walk through the field of green 
  	My feet are bare and the grass squishes underneath me 
	The rain is falling like little pebbles soaking me in beauty 
 	I breathe in deep letting its sweet scent fill my nose 
	Suddenly my feet are moving in a circle 
	I am dancing, dancing with love and hope 
	Love for the rain and its beauty 
	Hoping this moment will last a lifetime 

	 My summer dress flowing in the wind 
	Until it’s sprinkled with tears from heaven 
	I can’t imagine anything greater than this
	I have fallen in love with this day 
	This moment means only the world to me
	The burning yellow sun peaks out of the clouds
	Shinning down on me with its warmth  
	The drops ping against my face leaving a stream 
	 
	I am still dancing in a circle now waving my arms in the air
	The song of nature sings to me in the wind 
	It sounds like a dozen wooden flutes  
	The tune is sweet so sweet I get swept away in it
	The grass is so green like emeralds from God 
	I fall from dancing and roll down the grass 
	The whole time I am laughing and it sounds as if the butterflies are too 
	My pretty white dress is now green 
	 
	Butterflies dozens of them are flying around me 
	They surround me in their array of magical colors 
	They start to hum to the song of nature sung by the wind 
	It seems as if this tune is from heaven 
	I start to hum along to this wonderful tune it seems so familiar 
	I close my eyes and start to dance all over 
	Letting nature take me away 
	Birds come and tweet along to the song 
	I don’t think I just do, I go along with the song

	Finally the sun peaks all the way out 
	I can see it warming up the earth with its warm rays 
	The rain is still coming down just sprinkling over 
	I can see ahead a field of daises beautiful white daises 
	I run as fast as I can to the daises the butterflies and birds follow 
	They are soft like silk, their smell fills my nose 
	I close my eyes and run through the endless field of daises 
	I lay down and watch the fluffy white clouds pass overhead 
	The sun shinning as bright as ever over the clouds and sky

	
         The sky is baby blue with a little purple 
         I have never seen a sky so wondrous 
         It looks so full of possibilities and magic
         As I lay there I hear the daises moving in the wind 
         To the song of nature once again 
         This I know is beauty at its best 
         I fall asleep to the tune and awake in clouds 
         I am home

Jesus

He came to live the Father’s will,
To show us all The Way.
He came to give great promises
If only we obey.

So live for Him and grow in Him,
Know His word: The Truth.
Now dwell with Him, abide in Him
And let Him reign in You.

Loves greatest gift: He bore our sins
That we might have The Life.
He took our yoke upon Himself
And made our burdens light.

The Last Hour of the Christ

I wear the crown of hatred
misunderstanding and despair upon my hair
upon my back a wooden cross I bare
I know not why I’m hated so
all the people seemed to love me just a week ago

my skin is cut from head to toe
from whips of leather by men who wish to see me die
I spoke the truth for all the people to understand
my words of truth where words to set man free
from degradation hate and hell to live in harmony
for the rest of history

I cured the sick and healed the blind
with the touch of my own hand
I’ve walked on water and walked on sand
to preach and bring my truth through out the land 

people came from all around 
and would sit for hours upon the ground
I once had twelve good men who followed me around
now there’s only eleven one man let me down

my words have been mistaken
my God he has forsaken 
for that my life they’re taken
I believe that I have failed 
as my hands and feet are nailed upon this wooden cross
as they raise me in the air
all their sins I know I must bare

I want to scream not fair not fair
I’m just a young man I only wanted to teach
there are so many more people that I wanted to reach
my age is only thirty three
I pray my God
that they the people will remember me

written by Dennis H. Davis 
This poem was written from the human aspect of Jesus Christ. I wrote this poem with no effort what so ever it was as though it was being told to me. I watched my hand move across the page with a purpose a message I believe Jesus wanted this poem written.

I Don't Know What To Do With My Life

When that feeling rushes in-
I don't know what to do with my life-
I need to search from within
And look up toward the light.

Rest in peace, Mom

You weren't a saint but you were extremely close.
Out of all of the people on Earth, I've always loved you the most.
It will be very painful as they lower you into the ground.
Life will never be the same because you're no longer around.

You were a wonderful human being and a terrific mother too.
Your family and friends will always love you.
You were so sweet and kind that you should've been given a humanitarian award.
The people in Heaven are happy because you're there and so is the Lord.

You're in a better place and that makes your friends and family glad.
But as people see the tears rolling down my cheeks, they know that I'm so sad.
You were one fantastic lady, you were truly one of a kind.
Knowing that Heaven is your new home gives us peace of mind.

From time to time I wasn't the ideal son and that's something I regret.
You gave me life, love and happiness and that's something I'll never forget.
It hurts very much because you are deceased.
Everybody loves you Mom, may you rest in peace.

Contrast

Pharisee went into the Temple to pray
Sure of his goodness and love for God
He prayed confidently about his deeds
Fasting, tithing, praying, He did faithfully
 
This man was glad when the sinner came
Into the Temple with eyes downcast.
For it gave a perfect contrast to himself.
So he thanked God he wasn't like this sinner.
 
Sinner was bowed so very low before God.
"God have mercy on me a sinner." he whispered.
No list of good uttered, as he could see none.
Jesus said Sinner not Pharisee was justified.
 
Simon the Pharisee invited Jesus over to eat.
Simon didn't have servants wash Jesus feet
He didn't kiss Jesus or draw near for fear,
Fear of what others Pharisees would think.
 
In came a sinful woman with unkempt hair.
She wept at Jesus feet without looking up.
Carefully she wiped these feet with her hair.
Simon was now sure Jesus was no prophet
 
A prophet could surely tell she was a sinner.
How could he let her touch him that way?
Reading Simon's thoughts Jesus taught.
Using this contrast in real life as a lesson.
 
He asked Simon if there were two debts
One greater, one lesser and both forgiven.
Who would feel greater love and gratitude?
Simon replied, "The one whose debt was greater"
 
"Correct" said the One who would pay all debts.
Those who know their debt to God is great.
Are filled with greater love toward the Savior.
Simon showed he had little need for the Christ.
 
But to the woman. Jesus said, "You sins are forgiven."
"Go and sin no more." She stood free and esteemed
Precious are those who come humbly to the Lord
He will forgive and welcome them to His Family forever.
 
Humility. Pride. Contrast. Mixed in all of us.
People who come to God feeling worthless, Christ lifts up.
People striding in proudly, Jesus humbles to allow entry.
For the Lord's Kingdom's door is incredibly low.
So low that we enter only through true confession
From the heart to Jesus as Savior who humbled Himself
Coming down from glory to earth's mess to make a Way.
By humbling Himself on a Cross – Universe's God tortured.
 
Jesus contrast makes ours seem small – so why wait?
May we take the humble road to Life, risen Christ made.
Joining God's family of forgiven, freed, joyful sinners.
New life's contrast with old will grow as we follow Him.
 
By a thankful sinner now saint by Jesus' grace

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

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……

Moment to Reflect

Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. Many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasure that are a wonder to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you can find rest, for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago prepare The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all a long time ago and I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please live inside of me until the end. I sow the seeds and when the harvest comes you will know where it can from. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

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.

Never Take Hate Outside

When you're hurt inside,
And there's no where to hide,
And there's no one on your side,
And it's killing your pride,
Inside,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is chocking,
The heavy words never spoken,
The things that hurt you inside,
When love has died,
Inside,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is gone,
From being alone,
And it beats a solemn tone,

When you're cold inside,
It's only a short ride,
Never take hate outside

Romeo and Juliet

“Tis torture, and not mercy. Heaven is here
Where Juliet lives, and every cat and dog
And little mouse, every unworthy thing,
Live here in heaven and may look on her,
But Romeo may not."
- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, 3.3

All eyes are laid upon thy maiden
Vermin and foul creatures included
Her beauty hath paused every movement and whisper
Inviting all creatures, humans and animals alike to gaze upon thy face
Every creature comes, every creature is welcomed
Except her one true love
For hatred between thy families 
Hath separated each other from eternal happiness
As he walks and climbs to reach his fair maiden
His journey comes to an end
As Romeo looks to find Juliet
He realizes that he is unable
To look upon thy angel’s face
What has stopped thy lover’s from loving?
Tis’ hatred that hath brought such evil luck 
Upon two peoples innocent, longing souls
Alas! Thy couple hath found a solution
To their misfortune
With the cover of midnight upon their backs
And slumber deafening thy words
They may meet and look upon each other’s face
For as long as the sun is hidden 
And the birds are mute
Romeo may gaze upon his angel’s radiance 
And Juliet can return thou loving stare 
In the shadows of the earth’s secrets

The Fourth Fable 
 
A Jesus Cowboy Song 
 
Eye am a strong man iff strength is not physical alone, 
but charachter and hope, love become my armour 
 my arm as gates once opened close now new ones open at a glance in poverty 
of riches poor people there in Heaven sing to Jesus as they wave branches from 
the richness of the trees beside the waters running in the trenches freely given 
overflowing when a little lamb just wants a drink of water another drink the water 
bubbles up so no one has to lift her she can reach the water carefully she drinks 
and then she sings…' 
'my holster is empty my life is complete my love is in Heaven 
eye have plenty to eat and to drink ' 
life is not meant to be a shoot em up rodeo 
life is not meant to be a shoot um up movie 
my life is in Heaven my holster is empty 
eye have LOVE'

Sin Always Has A Price


As people are encouraged to “indulge within...”
They often become caught and trapped in sin!

Far too often, there’s an enticement to “fantasize.”
Of the many temptations flashed before the eyes!

There’s a problem, too often misunderstood!
Life doesn’t happen, like many think it should!

What’s often acted out and too often displayed…
Comes from a ruined life, that’s been betrayed!

One can easily find perversion of many kinds.
This can easily “overwhelm” someone’s mind!

I know that it’s easy to be “trapped and snared.”
It can leave one feeling 
alone and scared!

That which you may have craved,
 for some kind of fulfillment.
Has left you empty!  With no real enjoyment!

It’s easy to fall into bondage!  Difficult to get out!
Victory in Jesus is what his power is all about!

Won’t you call on him now?  
And let his love “soak through?”
He brings true meaning in the words; “I LOVE YOU!”

His love is not in some kind of cheap entertainment!
Only he can bring true peace and contentment!

You don’t need to spend money on the life he brings!
He is God!  And doesn’t need to use earthly things!

Sin has a price!  It seeks to have your eternal soul!
Only the blood of Jesus can make you complete and whole!

The gift of salvation is from Jesus!  And is freely given!
He alone has the power to change
 how you’re livin’!

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.

why and how, etc.. 
all are funny
and finally I do not understand 
Where is He in all of this!?

to pray
not be afraid
to forget all the words

Angels Without Wings

There are Angels in Heaven, that haven't any wings.
No miracles or visions or any of those things,
that Angels are said to do, to help us along.
But, these wingless Angels, they sing the sweetest songs.

As they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Fluffing the softest clouds, so as to lay their small heads to rest.
They cover them in quilts of love and tenderness.
You know these wingless Angels, are God's very best.

I know personally, four of the wingless Angels, who love their task.
I am sure they volunteered, without being asked.
Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, never needed wings,
for they were Angels while on this earth, their praises I sing.

As they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Fluff the softest clouds they find, when the babes need rest.
Covering them in quilts of love and tenderness.
Yes, I know these four wingless Angels, are God's very best.

The children flock around Grandpa, to hear his silly jokes.
Watch him make bubbles float and blow multi colored rings of smoke.
Grandma and Mom, make cookies and cake, fresh from the sun.
Making sure as to not run out, sharing with everyone.
Dad is making sure the piggy back rides, never stop.
He finds the best clouds around, to bounce atop.

At night, they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Gathering up the softest clouds, on which to rest.
They cover them in quilts of love and tenderness.
These four wingless Angels, are God's very best.

What Have I Done For Jesus

What Have I Done For Jesus???

I’m trying to remember the things I’ve dreamed of…
There so much I haven’t done, that I can think of!
I’m trying to remember when I was just a young boy…
There were things in life that I really enjoyed!
But, as I grow older, and it’s all done and said…
I feel more aches and pains each time I get out of bed!

This old body of mine is growing very weary and old.
I don’t have a lot of time, as I have been told!
There’s one area in life, where I’ve fallen short of a goal…
I haven’t given God a chance to redeem my soul!
I suppose I’ve been too prideful and stubborn at best…
I need to give God my life, and let him take care of the rest!

Dear Jesus, I come to you now and confess my sinful ways!
I accept you as my Lord and savior, for the rest of my days!
Please come lord Jesus, and bring your healing deep within!
Cleanse and change me, and take away all of my sin!

You’re what I need!  And are truly my best friend!
How I love and appreciate you!  Again and again!

Water, Beach and A Moonlight Stroll

Water, Beach and A Moonlight Stroll


Moonlight, beach and a stroll in the cool blue water
you wading beside me, string bikini made it so much hotter!

You bending over to splash water in my smiling face
a fantastic sight, one that made this loving heart race!

Cool breeze sending it's soothing , washing embrace
moonlight water washing away footprints leaving not a trace!

Such glory, sharing that love filled time with you
realizing I love it all, everything you and I could ever do!

Stopping by that overhanging rock beaten by the sea
memories of your body and sweet face forever burned into me!

Love, overpowering love, burning us into just one
water, beach, breeze with us bare under that midnight sun!

Our first night at the resort in the Phillipines, Boracay!
So very beautiful and an idealic scene for love to blossom. 
And blossum it did, a glorious memory burned into my heart 
and my brain!
My wife, the enchantress that captured my heart with a smile, 
a laugh and a string bikini! One I bought that day and dared her
 to wear! Knowing I'd win the bet, she fooled me--she wore it won
 the bet but just between us -- I wanted to see that win!!!!!

Desire's Passion

Your most inner passion, my desires to love greatly.
To please you not just sexual but as a man of heart.
To give my soul to you, even in the darkess hours.
But be a man of love and crawl into them baby blues.

To fulfill your life with burning desires and wants.
Not just material things but the love of your man you'll feel.
The touch of our bodies, the intense ravish our hearts beat.
Engulp in a love tangle feeling we know to often of.

The nights are cold and lonely with many thoughts of you.
My heart warm, cozy and holding love deeply and strong.
Being without you, my darkness only flickers a candle.
But the emotions are there for the giving and waiting.
As everyday would be bright, you in my world.

But nights when eye's close, you are in dream.
I see you but can not get near to touch.
My love I feel desire for die just at the struggle to be.
I wait in Great Love my darkness void.
That space I hold dearly and truely your touch is yours.

With The Best Of Intentions And A Heart Of Grace


With the best of intentions and a heart of grace…
Christ died on a cross!  He took our place!

With the best of heaven close by his side…
Christ opened the door to heaven ever so wide!

With the best love that anyone could bring…
He took away our sin and “erased” everything!

With the best that his father could bring from above.
It was his gifts of mercy, 
grace and love!

With the “best” man could offer, he would still “fall short.”
God brought the gift of salvation,
 down into our “court.”

With hearts filled with wickedness and so much sin…
Through Christ’ shed blood... 
 We can be made “born again!”

With each day we have...  Christ is always here!
His commitment to us is everlasting and secure!

With every moment of the day 
 we have before us…
May we spend time with God…  
He’s always with us!

With what God has given to you….  
Won’t you come to him?
Through his son Jesus, 
your heavenly journey begins!

“I LOVE YOU!” Are the words God has written!
This can be the day your changed and forgiven!

Beloved Friend I Have Fallen

An angel, cradles me, in her motherly arms
I have fallen, I am venerable 
I told myself, I would not do this, no more
I have failed to keep my promise, to you
I have not stayed true
Tears flowing, as I smile, just, for you!
Remembering the times, when you cupped my face, in your hands
Your blue eyes, gazing into mine
Telling me with sincerity
‘I am the sunshine, that lights up your world, each day that dawns’
My heart aches, it rains with love, having fond memories of us
Wash me clean, being human, is challenging me!
Emotional bondage, creating blocks
I need to move on, you are dead and buried
Your time here, over
My heart struggling, accepting this reality
“Forgive me”
I pray to be free!
“I Love you, my beloved, friend”

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.

Taking The Lead

I can feel Your presence;
I can feel You in all that I do.
I can feel You walking with me,
And I don't know what to do.
I just need to trust You
Because this is a journey I cannot see.
I am giving up;
Thank You for taking the lead.

living in a dream world

you were there
and so was i
you in youre world and me in mine
yet somehow we werent there at all
and our worlds were just to small
together we would unite
leaving our old worlds behind
creating a new worlds together
one that we would share forever and ever
now here we are
as we have and always will be
in a world that we created
for only you and me
no longer in our own worlds 
but in our dream world

It Took A Lot of Faith

It's The Time

It’s the time of the year to hear Jesus’ name
Who from the Virgin Mary came
Born in a stable so long ago
A place full of cattle that gently low

Wise men that came from far and wide
To bring the new King their gifts with pride
Following a bright shining star
Came upon a stable after travelling far

Wrapped in swaddling clothes in a manger laid
In Bethlehem city where Herod would raid
He escaped his pursuers and was long gone
If Herod had killed him what would we have done?

The child he grew to speak of Gods love
And his father’s kingdom in heaven above
Of life everlasting in heavens abode
Provided that people could find the right road

So at this pleasant time of the year
Listen to Gods words without any fear
Repent all your sins and then just maybe
One day in his Heaven perhaps you will be

And on this his birthday let all war cease
If we listen to God we could always have peace
A world in which we all could share
Just like in Heaven if we really care

Going Fast

Caught with glances past
Holding memories going fast
Faces lost pasts caught
I am sorry but I have no memory 
Of any times with you

As good as you look
Your only a odd felt hook
And what we had is now only you
As I open a new book
You would be some thing new

Yes I remember
But theres nothing that I feel
Here to remind me, nothing now here to do
I have nothing but pains for the memory
Your not even a fact or a smell
So untill you are actually bold
I will count you as cold
Some where in a dream I can't hold

	To the “mother” I wish I had,
To the sister I wish I knew,
I want you to know this,
I love you!
	I want God to bless you,
Even more than me,
When you die, I want you to go,
To Heaven for eternity.
	May God lift your voice,
To Heaven up above,
And may He rain down His blessings,
To you in love.
	I wish your voice to be strong,
For all the times we meet,
Your voice will be so wonderful,
I’ll fall in my seat!
	To the “mother” I wish I had,
To the sister I wish I knew,
I want you to know this,

Dare

She walks amid flowers where I see
the blue jasmine and the white lily
bowing as she goes like a colibri
flipping her wings, laughing silly…
 
The wind enters, taking the scent away,
a thief we both, also invisible,
holding her waist, to kiss then to sway,
quoting a song found in a Bible.
 
When spring comes, she will leave there
and bloom anew, a bough in her hand
on head a garland and a quietly dare:
Would I obey love’s command?

Life in a Dream corrected

Moments to Reflect
Life found in a Dream 
Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. There are many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasures that are a wonders to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you will find rest and for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago and I prepared The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all to read a long time ago. I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it’s just not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please come and live inside of me until the end. I now sow the seeds and when the harvest comes the Lord will know if they landed on fertile ground. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

Heaven

Heaven is a real place,
With streets of gold,
And pearly gates.

A river flows from God's throne,
Near it, is the tree of life,
There, the sun has never shone,
For God's glory fills it with light. 

I refuse to speak more,
Of heaven's great splendor,
For its riches most assuredly,
Over time will tend to bore me.

See my Father is a gardener,
Who prunes off fruitless branches, 
He's also a pardoner,
Who gave me many chances.

Maybe that will help explain,
I'll tell you without shame,
Heaven holds only one treasure, 
For which my heart does pine,
That's the gem called Immanuel, 
The one and only true vine.

The skies of clouds

As I sat here I gaze at the sky. 
The clouds you see,the blue in the scene. 
One could just get lost watching them go by. 
Looking for their life among them,the answers they seek. 
It is there you find heaven as the different things you see. 
It's not just by circumstances we see these things but by God he shows us his land. 
That of the animals running wild at play or perhaps it was there I seen you laid in my arms 
as we kiss each other with love it showed. 
It wasn't of my imagination because there he showed his eye's watching from above. 
The love he so desire us to have. 
The peace we found in the sky of clouds. 
That none existed why I layed here in the green grass of the field. 
That of all my worries he took away for them moments I stare. 
There wasn't a care in the world except your existance and me loving there. 
I even seen my old dog scruff who just recently passed away. 
With that of a smile on his face while he played. 
It just brings tears to my eyes. How wonderful heaven must be. 
Wishing I was there instead of here. 
I even seen you sleeping there with a tank top on and the covers pulled to you waist. 
How I wish I was there beside you in the cloud you lay. 
There's many things we see in the skies of clouds. 
That each might see different things but we all are as one in his land of milk and honey. 
As he knows my thoughts,he shows his love there. 
Because he show me you,knowing how much I love you there. 
There in my heart as much as what brung me watching them this day. 
That he knew I would feel better if I found you there. 
That I would smile through my frown. Just because of the love I have for you. 
As I sat and watch the skies of clouds. I look for our future and pray 
in tears to the one who cares. 
That my life may be fulfilled with the one I love with all my existance. 
But there I am at peace, knowing you are there.

God Wants You to Be With Him Forever



 God Wants You To Be With Him forever!

Heaven can one day be your
 eternal home!
You can have a mansion
 next to God’s throne?

You can know for a certainty…
Where you’ll be spending eternity.

Through Christ, your sins
 can be forgiven!
Christ’ love can change
 the way you’re livin’!

You can know 
beyond any doubt.
What true life is all about!

You can know
 the peace of God today!
Meditate on God’s word
 and what it has to say!

Why not give your heart to him?
And know what it means
 to be born again!

Your life can have
 a Godly direction!
And accept his heart-felt invitation?

You can know God’s
life changing power?
What are you waiting for?  
This could be YOUR hour!

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.

Our Love Is Enough

We don't need to go out and party,
We don't need to drink,
We don't need to socialize,
We don't need to go shopping,
We don't need to spend money,
We don't need to go to a movie,
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.

Paradise begins 
sparkling beyond this 
earth's atmosphere 
Lighting up 
spiritually invisible 
flying cotton feelings 
touching soft 
emotions angelic 

In divine tenderness 
a celestial

without wing 
Loving into 
the Heaven's 
an outer worldly 
special experience 

Immortal soul 
sings in 
such beauty mates 
Transcending love 
ethereal enters 
taking over 
the heart 

Within the vastness 
of deep space 
glowing inside thoughts 
thinking of 
you golden 
A treasure 
in pure 
angelic bliss 

Daisies waving 
in the sun 
whispering delight 
circling softly inside 
magically dreamy 
Circle enchanting touches 
romantic music rotates 
from within 
this universe 

Rebirth of happiness 
blooms in 
rose petals 
in an eternity 
of precious joy 
captivating the mind 

Held in 
a ring 
forever together 
always as one 
inside view 
kissed by your

Wife and a Mother

 Joey And Mother

Mothers are a gift from the heavens above
All through life they share their love
Mothers are the greatest creation 
They are what they are and need no explanation
From that first day starts a new life of love and joy
They do anything to protect their baby girl or boy
They walk around as proud as can be
They want to shout look I have a life inside me
Bigger and bigger she gets as time goes by
Some suffer from pain and they cry
There love is so strong that they can bear the pain
They suffer and pray that it all was not in vain
The greatest day on earth has come
With some pain and pushing you are now a mom
You have suffered a lot and sometimes cried
But now it is over and with a baby at your side
Now the easy part is over and your baby is here to stay
You become a doctor a lawyer different people everyday
You protect and raise them through the years
With love joy and even some tears
Now their grown and its time for them to leave
You think back over the years while you grieve
Even thou they are gone and hardly call you
They may not write but they do love you
Mothers belong on a pedestal with the word rare
From the first day till the last they always care
Mothers are and will always be
The greatest any world will ever see
When it is her time to go to heavens place
She is sent back to earth wearing a new face
Over and over a mother they be
To give love to their new baby
Back and forth from heaven to earth
With love and joy and giving birth
Mothers are not one of a kind
They are all the same with love in mind
With love in there heart from heaven they come
Before you move on let me say I love you mom

A Step Towards Heaven

A new day begins.
And I take another step towards heaven.

The ray of sun doesn’t always wake me up.
Sometimes, it’s the sound of thunder,
Or the chill that descends over me,
Or the warmth, that I precipitate.

I always don’t have the smile of calmness, 
Ushering the joy and the contentment 
That fills my bleak land with greenness.

Sometimes, I wake up to the sound of rain
And cogitate about how it never dies
I hear its rhythm and take in the smell
And how everyone’s thirst it satisfies.

Some days, I weep and breathe deep
When I open my eyes
I feel the thrust of my heart in my chest
In my head, the horrendous illusion I revise.

Many a times, I wish I don’t have to wake up
And I sleep for eternity
Better than awakening to dismay
I’d be veiled in complete serenity.

Or sometimes, there is hope and faith,
And cheerfully I chirp,
Or whirl and sway, 
To the melody of love.

I always cannot smell rose,
Sometimes, something burns too.
But yet, I rise from my sleep,
And with the beginning of a new day,
I put a step forward into,
The future and towards the unknown,
I keep walking towards the heaven.

My Friend

He began his journey
             To eternity
For us
   another page to turn
   a grain of sand through the hour glass
We are left behind
   to feel the pain and enjoy memories
In this world of emotion
    I ask myself
    is this the heaven I thought?
For
    I see,Feel Taste and love
But now
    I see what is missing
    I feel the pain
    I taste the bitterness of lose
    I love one that is gone
    I answer my own question!
For
    I grew with him
    I talked and cried with him
    I lived with him
    I saw him in Love and Pain
My heaven holds many mysteries
    Heaven on earth

A Love Filled Dwelling

A Love Filled Dwelling



I sent my love to your waiting heart
 with hopes we live and never part
You sang back such sweet replies
 banishing dark clouds from my skies

I sent my great worries and cares
 we cried , lets climb those stairs
Up we went into a love entwined cloud
 no dire problems or worries allowed

You sent hope and glory into my life
 promises of faithful love as my wife
You then made our romance a blessed joy
 gifting us our treasure, our little boy

Never darling, shall I ever dare to forget
shared paradise came because you, you are the best

Two Tickets To Heaven

If I could give you two tickets to heaven, who would be the two people you would choose? Might it be your loving Mother or Father, or your adorable children if you only had two? Maybe your Grandma and Grandpa, who were watching over you, their whole lives through? Or possibly a couple of old friends, that you grew up with since the young age of two? How about your sister and brother, who were with you as you grew? A husband, wife or a loving aunt or uncle, with so many possibilities it's really difficult to choose. You see, to me it wouldn't really matter, because I'm already giving my two tickets to you.

Sleeping Beauty

Laughing amid the joyful morn as dashing through this, sunlit meadow; sprites

Colouring in smiles while nature gazes and Angels point, unto a clearing....

Rising columns aneath glittering light; etching castles beyound golden hues

White doves gliding through waterfalls with silver scrolls; painting fairy tales ?

Scenes parting their streams to weave these dreams; echoing moonbeams

Giggling, and there you are, chasing time which waves goodbye; blue skies 

About the glass with love's hands turning pages, inside this clock; she's ageless....

Unsaid Thoughts

Lord, lay me down gently in the cold cold ground.
Put me where I once trod freely, a spirit unbound,
akin to the bird and the water fowl.

Let the spring breeze announce another soul heaven bound,
while the gift my mother gave, lies molding in the cold cold ground.

Let my kin cry a while and a while
then wipe their tears with a smile.

Let them contemplate love and family and what it is they have never found.
Let them look, oh Lord, look--before they too find a place in the cold, cold ground.

What lies behind is what once was ahead, a figment of the human mind.

Let me ride the road to glory, let me peel the larder's rind.
Let me sit beside my loved ones, eternally sublime.
Let me not regret my being, nor that I had to leave.
Let me go, let me go friend, I know what I believe.

And I believe, oh, I do believe, He I talk to is real.
For every day in every way, He makes me feel what I feel.

All that I do and say, and love, 
All that I am and am part of:
For my love of Him, will they also find- -
peace, joy, happiness, and forgiveness. 

It is so because He told me it is so, bound
by His promise, I carry  with me into the cold, cold ground.

And when she lies beside me, only then will, I be complete.

Two spirits merged, amo amas amat--yes I love, 
I have loved and I shall love.  
I am loved, I shall be loved, I will have been loved.

The great mystery: I am one, she is one and we are one,
something which will not change though the ground be cold,
though the winds blow, the tide rises and the sun falls from the heavens.

As surely as, I have lived and I have died.
As surely as, I have laughed, worried and cried,
putting all other good and wonderful things aside,
I will lay in the cold, cold ground with my bride.

While for now, in this earthly form we linger, awaiting the final surrender
to the great “I am”, the Prince of Heaven glorified.
Amen, Amen and Amen

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.

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.

Do You Blame Or Trust God


Do You Blame Or Trust God? Do you blame God for the trials you may face? Do you reject God’s mercy and grace? Perhaps you are in a most “difficult situation.” You can’t figure out a “reasonable explanation?” You may feel abandoned, alone and afraid. There may have been times when you prayed. You don’t know why this happening to you? You probably try your best in all that you do! But, it still things really haven’t worked out. And you often wonder what life is all about? Rather than blaming God… Why not trust him? He’s not your enemy! He wants you to know him! He’s not the blame for the sorrows of mankind! He’s always faithful, most loving and kind! He patiently waits for anyone to call on his name! With him in control… Things won’t be the same! He is here! Even if everyone else fails you! If you give him a chance! He wants to help you! Won’t you take the time, and invite him in? This is where a new opportunity can begin! His life for yours, is what he gives in exchange! He can help your situation to really change! He can change your life! And turn it around! And can put your life on a solid ground! By Jim Pemberton

God Is Awesome and His Beauty Displayed

God Is Awesome and His Beauty Displayed!

God is awesome and his beauty displayed!
He’s my protector!  I’ve no reason to be afraid!

God is wonderful!  And his glory never ends!
He is my Lord!  My provider and friend!

God is magnificent!  And his glory is real!
Behold the God of Abraham, Jacob and Israel!

God is omnipresent! 
 He’s wherever I go!
His son Jesus, has totally
 cleansed my soul!

He’s the reason that I am here today!
I love him much more, than words can say!

He’s the reason why I can face tomorrow!
He’s removed my pain, guilt and sorrow!

His word is my guiding light as I travel on.
It shows me what is right..  And what is wrong!

He put his love, like a shield around me!
I once was lost, but his spirit found me!

He’s given to me his faithfulness!  Forever true!
And spoke to me; “I’ll forever LOVE YOU!”

He’s my rock, my hope and salvation!
Through Jesus, there is no separation!

He can be your God too! 
 Why not come to him?
Through Jesus, is where
 a new life BEGINS!

loves mystery

a starlight of love
where none was before
a mysterious figure
who opens the door
a flame of passion
that now burns bright
a soothing massage
of briliant white light
a wonder
a mystery
it opens heavens
it gives hope wings
this thing called....
love

Prayer

Jesus,



Keep me in your presence

and bless me with your grace

Allow me to walk in your will

and hide not your face

Teach me your precepts

forever and always

and I vow to follow you all of my days.



Shield me with your power

Keep me in perfect peace

Cover me with your blood

Do with me as you please



Let not my enemies overtake me

as I seek your face

Love me Lord until infinity

so I can run this race



Hold me in your hands

so I may proclaim your name

HIS plans are greater than my plans

because Jesus deserves the fame.

There in an ancient city

I wish to make love to him, this rival poet
I wish to take him there
Or rather, I wish he would take me there
So that no more shall we keep away from each other and be distant

No more shall we feel stony
No more shall we care for the society
Only shall we see the blinding stars
Illuminating our souls, rubbing off from our souls, our scars

The chosen place would be an ancient city of India
There where still living is the Lord's replica
I wish to make love to him there, indeed
For there is where my heart shall beat at full speed

Can you just feel the ecstasy everywhere
It would seem that there, life is all so fair
Because the beautiful Lord used to the king of the city
Always filling everyone with distress at one more prank of his, so funny!

Yes, there, there is where I wish to make love
I wish to be there, with the rival poet
I wish to be able to sing to him, a most melodious duet
As melodious as would be that of the one above

I wish to be in his arms, while walking in marvelous gardens
I wish to have this friend of mine, as kidnapped and stolen
Maybe some fairies would appear
And help me find, for my task, the right steer!

An ancient city of India, surely would I be the Queen
Always pristine, always serene
With a most handsome poet, having like me, a heart of stone
Surely, to my charms, I could have him easily won!

God Has Sent Jesus

God Has Sent Jesus!

God has given a wonderful gift!.  
Many haven't received it.
He loves us so much! 
 Many do not believe it.

He’s given us the gift of salvation.  
Many refuse it.
All that we hold on to.  
We shall one day lose it...

God gives to all, a joyous and 
brand new way of living!
Many are living a life
 that is not fulfilling.

Jesus...  His Son...  Is knocking 
at our heart's door.
Many have said; "Go away!"  
I don't want you anymore!"

God looks down from heaven,
 and what does he find?
The wickedness and
 sin there is in mankind.

Won't you accept this gift 
that he offers to you?
The choice is yours alone.  
What are you going to do?

He awaits your decision.  You need to 
make up your mind.
Now is the day of salvation. 
 Now is the accepted time!

Time is growing short.  
The hour's getting late.
Come to him now!  While there's
 still an open gate!

Angels in Heaven Above

It is said there are Angels
 In Heaven above
 And they shine with the light
 Of an inner love

 Of these things
 I had not a clue
 But that was
 Before I found you

 For in you I’ve found
 A love that is so right
 It shines all around
 With the brightest of light

 It comes from somewhere
 So deep within
 That it has no beginning
 And knows no end

 Your love is a light
 That brightens each day
 Of all of the people
 You see on your way

 Where ever you go
 Or whatever you do
 All see the love
 That you have inside you

 That God sent you here
 To a place where you’d be
 Sharing such love
 With someone like me

 Is proof for me
 That angels exist
 And are filled with a love
 That no man could resist

 I thank God each day
 For finding the time
 For looking down on me
 And making you mine

 So yes there are Angels
 In heaven above
 I know because God
 Sent me one to love

Our first kiss

Striking lightening 
these hands were shaking 
trembling underneath you're touch electrifying 
so eager to please you my love 
this love forever pines away 
each drifting view inside 
a desert oasis with you 

An angel's voice sweetly sings 
out chants magic every word 
so sweet my unforgettable dream 

Inside this you are darling 
shining brightest of all stars 
liquid silver shivering 
inside the moon begins to weep 
sweet starlight crystals winking droplets fall 
love you are each and every one 

A beautiful memory lasts forever 
touching so deeply reality 
dreaming soft treasure always 
waving lips of desire 
that I will never forget 
as long as I should ever live, 
the very first kiss 
joining lips breathtaking 
with you my love complete

Reunion

Eyes grow weary, have they learned to see
During years of absence, you from me
Your story's at end, your chosen plot
Time draws near, but you may know not

Shall I see my mother, perhaps my dad
Ever watchful, my being glowing so glad
It is time, I wait with mounting joy
For them once again to be girl or boy

That which was separate, will now be one
Your chosen tasks are nearly done
At the entrance, there I stand
Reunion time is close at hand

From the palm of His hand I've watched you grow
Seeds of goodness, We watched you sow
Come be with me and share His land
I await the touch of your sweet hand

I fault you not, as you can see
I love you so, come be with me
So hasten forth, with lifted heart
No longer more shall we be apart

These words I write, so dear to me
Express my desire that you'll be free
If the gate be locked, search for the key
But look not far, in your heart it will be.

A LITTLE POETRY COMES

So it is way, way down by the Sea,

inside

that vision comes,

crystal,

and clearly.

 

As the waves touch upon the feet

of the shore line.

 

As soul wades in.

 

So it is way, way down deep, to walk upon...

leaving the shore,

catching a breeze,

 

...setting the sails,

walking upon the winds,

with wings,

 

So swing low, sweet the chariot,

that lifts the spirit,

so high-

 

The Seas.

 

...just to reach a little shack by the road,

with a hole in the roof,

and the boards on the side fall often times,

the winds do blow

through the holes,

 

Yet, here is where

a little poetry comes.

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

God's Love Knows No End

God’s Love Knows No End!

With God’s love…  There is no end!
It’s one thing to hear of it…
 Another to pretend!

There’s no end of his love
 for you to receive!
Simply reach out…    And believe!

There’s no end to his love
 and wondrous deeds!
He can take care of you 
and meet all of your needs!

There’s no end, how much of your
 sin can be forgiven!
He can change you right now…  
And the way you’re livin’!

There’s no end to the words
 of love he’s spoken!
Why not allow his love to enter your heart
and be “inner-woven.?”

There’s no end to the power
 of his healing!
The words;  “I love you!”  
He’s always revealing!

There’s no end to HIS majesty!
 He rules SUPREME!
He is God.  Your provider… 
 He Is EVERYTHING!

There’s no end to the times he’s 
knocked at your heart’s door.
Why not invite him in??? 
What are you waiting for?

Why not accept this unlimited God
 who’s patient and kind?
Won’t you do this today? 
 Why there is still time?

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.

True Love Given Reflections of Love

Moments to Reflect
True Love

As I look up into the night sky, oh what a beautiful sight the stars shining are so bright. I think about my Lord and my heart swells and fills with so much joy that the Father of all has created such wonders in the heavens above. So much beauty, so much love.
This cause me to reflect upon my existence on this earth, why was I given birth, what is my purpose on this earth? These questions laid profoundly on my mind and brought tear to my eyes.

I got down on my knees and ask my Lord please explain it to me. From my heart came pouring out all of my thoughts along with all of my doubts.
To my lord I did say, what is it that you want from me, for I do the things that I do not want to do, and the things that I want to do, I cannot seem to do, why am I such a fool I feel like am doom?

What is wrong seems so right and doing what is right is so hard for me to do, am hurting so deep within all I want is this pain to end.
My life is filled with so many ups and down I cannot keep my feet on solid ground. I feel like am on a roller coaster and it headed hell bounded. I pray that this is not my fate it‘s Heaven’s gate that I seek and I pray that it not too late.

Then as the tears began to fall and my heart started to break; all of a sudden I felt this warm embraces. I have never in life expected such love, such comfort, or joy, and then suddenly all my pain was gone and I heard the angels singing a wonderful song. In my mind eye I could see my Lord and savior sitting on His throne looking at me.

He smile and said to me; life is worth living and this is why it was given, trials and tribulation are just part of the deal and I know that this is a bitter pill.
It in your nature to sin my child but this you can end if you walk in the light and let me come in. My yoke is easy and I make your burdens light so just ask me to forgive you of your sins for with me in your comer this fight you will win. 

Then you will be heaven bound and sin will never be able to hold you down. The guide if you decide to be at my side is written in my living words. Read them and heed them and satan will frown and you will no longer be hell bound.
Then the Lord said to me, I tell you this my little lamb,  I Am who I Am and I came into this world a long time ago, my Father sent me to earth to show His child the way. 
I became a living sacrifice and paid a debt that was not mine; so that you might find a way back home and be by my side. Rejoice; rejoice all is not lost, for I have paid the cost.

If you think that the star in the heavens are a wonderful sight; you now see what I see when I created thee. My love has no boundaries, it all for the asking if you put your faith in me. 

Trust in me with all of your heart and in this you will find the ultimate peace of mind. 
Bless you my little lamb your time was well spent praying to upon your knees. The seed has been planted and I will harvest the crops and separate the wheat from the weeds and cast them they into the lake of fire where them will suffer for all eternity. 
Having faith in me is well founded, Heaven or hell which will it be? Loving Me will set you free and guarantee you life for all eternity. This is true love that comes only from ME

 so please say a prayer to me, 
i will come when i do hear thee
my heart and soul will never be far

There Is A Heaven There Is A Hell

There Is A Heaven... There Is A Hell… I met a person. As he spoke, I could tell. He’s quite happy. He doesn’t believe there a “hell.” He said; “much of what the Bible says has a new meaning. “God is a loving God,” is rather appealing. “God couldn’t condemn a person to an eternal fire.” “This isn’t his will…” “Nor his desire.” “The words of death or hell don’t mean what they say.” “Why should anyone believe that Jesus is the way?” Christ came so we can spend eternity with him. He became the ultimate sacrifice for our sin. It’s not God. But our sin, that’s caused a “separation.” But God has extended to all his gift of salvation. God’s warning is clear. And quite evident. The coming of Christ is very soon and imminent! The truth of God’s word is 100% certainty. And gives clear direction where you’ll spend eternity. Narrow is heaven’s road... Broad is the road to eternal destruction. Will you believe God’s word? Or live on a false assumption? All of heaven awaits for you to make a decision. Why not follow Christ? And make heaven your mission? Allow God to work in your life. Simply obey and believe. His abundance of life is for everyone to receive! By Jim Pemberton 09/09/11

Why Do People Complain About God


Quite often, I hear many complaints
When it comes to Godly “restraints.”

Often, things of God are
called “bigotry.”
AS much of this nation indulges
In idolatry!

God?   Well, “we just don’t
need him!”
”Why should anyone ever believe him?”

Many churches provide
very little Godly direction.
They’re more concerned about
“getting people’s attention.”

No wonder why many don't 
know what to believe!.
Drugs and sex is what many
 want to achieve!

God is what is really what’s needed!
Without him, our life is
never completed!

Rather than complain…
We need to praise him!
One day…  We shall all
kneel down before him!

It’s only in Christ… 
We have purpose and hope!
Without him…  We’re on a
“slippery slope.”

Won’t you come and invite
the Lord Jesus in?
He’ll bless your life 
again and again!

He gives true life!  That’s everlasting!
It can be yours!  Just for the asking!

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

she took my hand and showed me around
the hand of an angel heaven bound
she alone helped me find my way
and that's why i fell in love with her that very first day

i was new where i knew no one at all
it was just after summer in the early fall
november introduced me to joy and so much more
and beauty a blind man couldn't ignore

i'll never forget that day my newfound angel and i met
a seraphim to whom i owe a priceless debt
she made comfort mine and my anxiety disappeared
as my hearbeat quickened each time she neared

everytime she drew nigh i drew in a breath of relief
an angel who erased by most evident grief
i was saddened by loss and desperation found
relieved by an angel who was heaven bound

i still recall the sweet breath of that Autumnal day
and how she led me around in a most tender way
somehow without words she made me feel at ease
and made me believe that even in the dead of winter a rose wouldn't freeze

as i surveyed the land around me i saw Mrs. O'Malley's silken sheet
blowing in the breeze on the day that angel and i came to meet
it's difficult to forget days as lovely as the day she and i spent together
a day of perfection in both her loveliness and lovely weather

an angel became my guide to lead me to a special place
a wondrous woman who moved me with every comforting embrace
it became my duty begotten to become akin to her prince
and to my delight we've been together ever since

Unexpected Heaven

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Black and white, it was all I saw
Everywhere I turned, everywhere I went
Ice covered everything, too thick to ever thaw

I couldn't see in front of me,
I couldn't find solid ground,
My world was crashing down around me,
Any cries of help dying without a sound.

So much time had gone by
And I was slowly drifting
Too much time had gone by
And I was slowly fading

But then you came to me, so unexpectedly,
I couldn't see a thing
You offered me, such a sweet reality,
I wondered if I was dreaming
You took my hand, made me understand
the truth among the lies
And wrapped in you, so safe and sound
An unexpected heaven is what I found

You were everything to me,
my feet were finally on the ground,
the world kept spinning quickly,
but in your arms I stayed as it all crashed down

So much time has gone by
And I'm slowly seeing
Too little time has gone by
For me to rid of this feeling

And then you came to me, so unexpectedly,
I couldn't see a thing
You offered me, such a sweet reality,
I wondered if I was dreaming
You took my hand, made me understand
the truth among the lies
And wrapped in you, so safe and sound
An unexpected heaven is what I found

Bright and true, I saw it in you
Life and love, I had found it all
A fairytale ending, it was in my sights
All because of you, my unexpected knight

And then you came to me, so unexpectedly,
I couldn't see a thing
You offered me, such a sweet reality,
I wondered if I was dreaming
You took my hand, made me understand
the truth among the lies
And wrapped in you, so safe and sound
An unexpected heaven is what I found

And wrapped up in you, so safe and sound
Happiness is what I gained
An unexpected heaven, is what I found

Paradise for We

Paradise for We

My beautiful lady , my darling Estelle
sweet are the days while love rings it's bell
Paradise beckons our hearts as future opines
your beauty sings of roses and Blue Mountain pines

Heaven has now ventured down to this earth
a paradise it created with your goddess birth
Adding romantic, dancing clouds in glimmering sky
a gift, a blessing sent , nobody daring to ask why

The briefest look at your angelic smile
summoned bliss and heavenly love in greatest style
A world with roses, rainbows and purest bliss
heavenly delights our souls dare not ever miss

My darling, sing as you sit waiting for me
As I move heaven and earth to find paradise for WE!

Old Mama Gass

Old Mama Gass
she lives in a zoo
she has three furry children
who fill her heart through.
There's one Auggie, one Kelly
and one Kandi Kane
who is often referred to
as her Kandi Pain.

There is always a pile
of fur on the floor
she vacuums it up
but she quickly gets more.
She once had an Ashley
but she went away
it has been five years
since that very sad day.

This past December
she was joined by Boo
her sweet little kitty
in heaven now too.
They both joined another
a black cat named Dink
who she use to find curled up
asleep in the sink.

Then there was Ratley
so cuddly and fat
she loved him quite dearly
yes, he was a rat.
She had so many others
through life as she grew
There was Patches and Daisy
and their puppies , too.

She loves them all dearly
in heaven and here
they have filled up her heart
with love and good cheer.
She knows there is nothing
like the love of a pet
you will love them forever
and never forget.

The earth is his footstool. There’s a God in heaven who’s love is not measurable! Experiencing his love and grace is pleasurable! There’s a God in heaven who’s given his word to read. He can calm life’s storms and meet our every need! There’s a God in heaven who seeks to give his blessing! Without him… You don’t know what you’re missing! There’s a God who can transform your life throughout. Making you a new creation is what his power is about! There’s a God in heaven with his arms extended. His offer of mercy and grace is to be commended! This God in heaven is here today and gives you a chance. To trust him with everything… No matter the circumstance! This God in heaven can trade your “ashes for beauty.” He remains committed to you. This is his “duty!” Won’t you accept this God? Before it’s too late? Narrow is the way…. To enter heaven’s gate! He can cleanse and make you whole within! He'll make you clean and take away your sin! By Jim Pemberton

Engineering a Kingdom

He told the tales     with likes and similes
human character          dressed as grass and trees
the fragility of life         just like a mist
as touched by divine spark       like children kissed
 
He drew attention         to earths everlasting beauty
and loving kindnesses            as worthy over duty
painted pictures           that a child's mind could see
and of the qualities             that would last eternity
 
Those he drew       were woman child and man
in parallels explained       Gods everlasting plan
a future government          by Gods own plan designed
choosing those who               like his Son in mind
 
The currant rulers here             described as beast
devour and make suffer          great to least
he implicated leaders           intentions as the cause
as having violated            all of the natural laws
 
He pointed out the signs              to tell the time
how earth and heaven         his plans to realign
where peace on earth           in every nation he will gain
with truth and everlasting            life they will maintain
 
Surprise          a life in heaven was not the plan for man
but he put us on the earth in a garden         understand
he intends this projects finish                by his Son
with those he has redeemed           to be the ones "to get er done"
 
I must advise you         those in the grave are dead
they will remain there          until the Son has said
he who has the keys of death           has them in mind
to resurrect upon the earth           in a future time
 
While Christendom adopted the    ideology of hell
the Teacher of the Truth       in sleep of death did tell
he called his friend            who was dead and in a grave
forth the example     of what his future rule will pave
 
How can you not get it      the things he plans to do
to eliminate on earth suffering           and all life renew
oh Shang gri La and Paradise            He plans for thee
where Man will live in Love             and joy in harmony

God Will Never Disappoint You


God Will Never Disappoint You!

There’s something I want to say!  
And to make a point!
Those who trust God…  
He will never disappoint!

You can trust him, even if problems
 surround you!
What God can do for you,
 just may astound you!

Look through the Bible, 
and the prophets of old.
God never let them down,
 as I’ve been told!

His son Jesus, seeks to give life
 with a true meaning!
His faithfulness in your life, 
you can be receiving!

God will never let you down,
 no matter what you face!
He can make everything beautiful! 
With his love and grace!

Won’t you give him a chance
 and trust him today?
Trusting his promises, 
and the words he has to say!

He’s someone who’ll be with you
until life’s very end!
You can always count on him,
 and call him; “friend!”

WHY

By Robielynn Collins 



  I have a thousand thoughts, running through my head, 
but I still can't believe, that your really dead, 
because you were so happy just hours before, 
your heart in the heavens,and ready to soar, 
I could never believe, 
that you'de do such a thing, to just take your life, 
and give it a fling, 
what about the people,that cared so much, 
how could you do that? we loved you such!, 
maybe you didn't know it, 
or maybe you didn't care, 
whatever the reason,it just wasn't fair, 
now you left us all here, 
to live wih this pain, 
what the hell in this world, 
did you think that you'de gain?

Are There Any Exceptions

Tell me- are there any other rules for love I haven't tried yet?
I saw you up in Heaven or were you just flying around trying to seduce me?
Can Heaven really wait?
I'm outside waiting for you.
To tell you the truth, I'll wait forever or at least until my heart breaks.
Are we just going to be close friends for eternity?
Look at me! Girl I'm on my knees!
You know you can count on me for anything and everything that doesn't involve drugs or murder.
I'll follow- you just lead.
Lead me to the life I was supposed to inherit when I heard your angelic voice.
Let me fall into your soft arms once again, but not as friends.

True Love

Moments to Reflect
True Love

As I look up into the night sky, oh what a beautiful sight the stars shining are so bright. I think about my Lord and my heart swells and fills with so much joy that the Father of all has created such wonders in the heavens above. So much beauty, so much love.
This cause me to reflect upon my existence on this earth, why was I given birth, what is my purpose on this earth? These questions laid profoundly on my mind and brought tear to my eyes.

I got down on my knees and ask my Lord please explain it to me. From my heart came pouring out all of my thoughts along with all of my doubts.
To my lord I did say, what is it that you want from me, for I do the things that I do not want to do, and the things that I want to do, I cannot seem to do, why am I such a fool I feel like am doom?

What is wrong seems so right and doing what is right is so hard for me to do, am hurting so deep within all I want is this pain to end.
My life is filled with so many ups and down I cannot keep my feet on solid ground. I feel like am on a roller coaster and it headed hell bounded. I pray that this is not my fate it‘s Heaven’s gate that I seek and I pray that it not too late.

Then as the tears began to fall and my heart started to break; all of a sudden I felt this warm embraces. I have never in life expected such love, such comfort, or joy, and then suddenly all my pain was gone and I heard the angels singing a wonderful song. In my mind eye I could see my Lord and savior sitting on His throne looking at me.

He smile and said to me; life is worth living and this is why it was given, trials and tribulation are just part of the deal and I know that this is a bitter pill.
It in your nature to sin my child but this you can end if you walk in the light and let me come in. My yoke is easy and I make your burdens light so just ask me to forgive you of your sins for with me in your comer this fight you will win. 

Then you will be heaven bound and sin will never be able to hold you down. The guide if you decide to be at my side is written in my living words. Read them and heed them and satan will frown and you will no longer be hell bound.
Then the Lord said to me, I tell you this my little lamb,  I Am who I Am and I came into this world a long time ago, my Father sent me to earth to show His child the way. 
I became a living sacrifice and paid a debt that was not mine; so that you might find a way back home and be by my side. Rejoice; rejoice all is not lost, for I have paid the cost.

If you think that the star in the heavens are a wonderful sight; you now see what I see when I created thee. My love has no boundaries, it all for the asking if you put your faith in me. 

Trust in me with all of your heart and in this you will find the ultimate peace of mind. 
Bless you my little lamb your time was well spent praying to upon your knees. The seed has been planted and I will harvest the crops and separate the wheat from the weeds and cast them they into the lake of fire where them will suffer for all eternity. 
Having faith in me is well founded, Heaven or hell which will it be? Loving Me will set you free and guarantee you life for all eternity. This is true love that comes only from ME

Fill Us Again

These days we all are just a bit more wiery ,
Even on common ground we have become leary.
  Trust is much harder to come by  these days,
Losing our faith has made us lose our way.
  Kindness & compassion a thing of the past,
Because of this love and Joy can not last.
  Smiles and laughter a rare thing to see ,
How I miss the way it use to be.
  We have become helpless and tolerant to unjust,
As we watch our hopes and dreams turn to dust.
  Discouraging words is all I am hearing anymore,
A little kindness and support would help for sure.
  It's sad as I sit here and see how we have all changed,
What makes it worse is that we are the blame.
  How to fix all  this and get us heading straight,
There is a way but fear it might be to late.
  If only we would take more time to pray,
It wouldn't be long before we found  our way.
  Becoming cold and heartless is what I've always feared,
I pray for our Lord to take us all away from here.
  Fill our hearts with love and joy again ,
We will follow you Lord forever Amen.

Seed of Birth

Moments to Reflect
Seed of Birth
After a summer shower I watch the wonders unfold Gods truth is being shown. His love for all shall be known to all who have eyes that can see. The miracle of life that is a delight to behold can be seen in a drop of rain on the end of a leaf. Sparkling like a diamond in the light, more precious than gold, a secret is told. The water of life, without it we cannot go on the earth would be has dry has a bone. A desert: a waste land as hot as Hades and not fit to be called home. The water of life He is known. 
The air so sweet and clean the breath of life He has been called. A blessing from the father it is a Gift given to us all. When the air can been seen it is unclean and in this state I call it satans breathe, oh so foul and within it only death can be found. 
Flower and trees, grass that is so green that there is not any artist in the world that could paint a more beautiful scene. Concrete streets and black top parking lots; progress is what it is called…maybe not. An eyesore, mans’ master piece his legacy, beauty it’s not. 
Like a spring rain or after a summer shower; new life does salvation brings. Like the morning dew shining like tiny jewels, in the sunshine they do glow.  Flowers blooming and life a renewing, with Jesus this is how salvation goes.
Rain can be seen as the world being baptized and cleansed, purifying it of mankind sins. This is a fresh beginning but it not at its end it only truth starts when you ask Jesus to come in.  
After a gentle rain shower our God reminds humanity of His power and His promise: rainbow in the sky a wonderful, magical miracle, truly a delightful sight. His signature written in the sky, proof that He tells no lies; never again with water will He end the world that has bought to Him so much pain. His tears of sadness, never again will the world end with rain. 
The evil one try his best with his temptation and his tests to cause us to die and never to rise; humanity he do hate want to take all with him into that fiery lake. These are the tools of his trade war and strife adding in a touch of worldly lust doing his best to kill our trust in the Lord who has given us so much. The spiritual war is what we are in do not fall for satan schemes. Heaven or hell which one will it be? Like the sun gives life to flower, the Son gives life to all who follows. He who is free is free in deed.
Christ the savior God did send, it shows us that satan cannot win. Like a summer day after a spring rain new life will begin. He will pardon us of all our sins but you must ask him to come in His forgiveness know no end. Open your heart and let Him in then and only then can you win. In Him salvation is guarantee and a new life can begin; so you must choose Heaven or hell where will you spend eternity in? 
God our Father gave His Son to the world so that we would have a path to the truth a light to shine in the darkest of time. Allow His attributes to shine forth you do not would to lose your soul. Before time ever begin He love us, will you not trust in Him sight unseen, the One who gives all life meaning?
All it takes is faith to bypass that fiery lake, because tomorrow is not promise and another sunshine you may not see. Time is on no one side, so do not go chasing rainbows you cannot fly. Keep what real in your mind the reality is sin must die. God give His Son to pay a price that He did not owe, the cost was high, but gift that is given for those who believe; is to be by His side, salvation is free are you ready to receive?
Summer shower and gentle breeze,
Golden flower and dew drops of leaves.
Soft green grass beneath your feet.
                    The only thing sweeter is than life is living with Jesus for all eternity.

What If Christmas Never Came


 UNSUPPORTED CODE What If…   Christmas Never Came???

What if Christmas never happened?  
What if Christmas never came?
Things around here would be different! 
It wouldn’t be the same!

What if the baby Jesus was never born in a manger?
Mankind would be in serious trouble. We’d all be in danger!

If the baby Jesus wasn’t born.  There would be no nativity.
We wouldn’t be able to display this during our “festivity.”

It’s almost like this now! 
 It’s an “ever increasing business.”
It seems like nearly everyone wants
  “Christ out of Christmas!”

Why does it seem like Christmas is 
 losing it’s true meaning?
The very words; “Merry Christmas,” 
seem to be quickly disappearing!

Many say; “Happy Holiday.”  
They worry they may “offend.”
Having a “holiday” without Christ….  
Once again!

We need to put Jesus Christ back into 
our CHRISTmas season!
He is what Christmas is about!  HE is the very reason!

May we all take some time to rejoice in our savior’s birth.
May there be shouts of JOY!  From the corners of the earth!

Let’s not take Christ out of our joyous celebration!
We need him so much right now! 
 All over this great nation!

May we bring to him a heart of love
 for everything he’s done.
As we bring honor to Christ.  God’s precious son!

May we continually offer to him a heart filled with praise!
Not only at Christmas time…  But all of our days!

Sweet Passion

A world of passion, where happiness is the norm 
Sun is peaking out, even in the midst of a storm 
Trees striking poses, grass dancing with the wind 
Heaven's tears of joy, falling to the surface end 
Mother nature's air consumed with gratifying bliss 
Angels smiling down sending their satisfying kiss 
A gentle melody, is sung by vocal bees and birds 
Carried away by God's harmonious words 
Life grows sweeter, with every newborn second 
Each moment is cherished, like the wise would reckon 
Regret is extinct, great memories are everlasting 
Hate is discriminated, pure love is always blasting 
Fulfillment never lacked, distributed to all who care 
Happiness inserted into all the hearts willing to share 
Kids playing in the fields, completely spirit free 
Adults laughing in awe of everything they see 
It seems so fictitious, yet it's extremely real 
Life is love, and love is what we should feel 
Matters of the heart, pursued in a sincere fashion 
The world is what you make it, when chasing your  passion

Will God Accept Me


Will God Accept Me?

I had nothing to offer to God but a life of  shame.
I was embarrassed of the mention of my name

I had nothing to offer to God but “failure.”
I didn’t know if he listened to me prayer?

I had a life that was just falling apart.
I often cried from a wounded heart.

I began to blame myself for things going wrong.
I began to feel like I didn’t belong.

I’d begin each day with a lot of stress and tension.
I didn’t feel any kind of love or appreciation.

Many of my friends began to “leave me behind.”
There wasn’t a single “friend” I could find!

Just when everything was falling around me...
Jesus was there!  His love began to surround me!

“Lord, please help me!” Where the words spoken.
My life was coming apart!,   And was empty and broken!

Jesus reached down and took a hold of my hand!
And told me everything I went through...  He understands!

Day by day he brought to me a peace I never knew!
Putting my life back together was what he wanted to do!

As I read his word, his spirit renewed my mind.
A precious friend in HIM…  I was able to find!

He accepted me! And gave so much more!
He truly is what living my life is meant for!

He is and will always be the Lord for me!
And can do the same for you!  Most certainly!

Flozzie Shanty

I wish I was everything to you
And if I was everything to you
How would that look too
Would you judge everything I do
Would you take everything I do in your heart
Would you love my wicked ways just for you
Would you accept me if I tried to open your life
If that would be all that I would be
Then would I be everything to you
That would make us live in heaven
Where I would cherish you above all else
Where I would shower you with God's love
And show you heaven where all things are
If you accepted me as everything
You would be everything to me.
Love eternal is the way to go.

forbidden love

in heaven I'm an angel in waiting,
on earth I'm beginning to live,
but wait seems my journey is ending,
why do you want to get rid of me?

I'm too small to have my say,
if I could I'd carry on my way,
seems my life is in your hands,
all I want is for you to give me a chance.

no heart feelings, no angry thoughts,
although it hurts, my life you stopped.
in waiting I'll stay until we meet one day,
in heaven not on earth, our forbidden love we will share.

Jesus Died for Everyone

Jesus Died For Everyone! Jesus died on the cross for you me! So we can be with him throughout eternity. His life for ours… A ransom was paid IN FULL! Through his shed blood, we’re made whole! Upon his head were placed the crown of thorns. Enduring so much ridicule and scorn. The blood from his body as it began to flow. His love for mankind clearly showed! Nails were placed through his feet and hands! The pain he went through, is hard to understand. His life for ours, is what he gave! A way to eternal life, in heaven, has been made! By Jim Pemberton

My Own Heaven On Earth

My Own Heaven On Earth
By Cody Brandon Turner


O do touch my face
With that soft and gentle touch
I feel the love I give
Never seems to be enough
The Love you deserve
Only god can provide
For my love for you is strong
Like a Sailors knot that is tied
Sunflower eyes and desiring lips
Your love is deep within me
In my heart is where it sits
You are heaven on my earth
Love in my pocket
If something should try to take this
Then I shall fight and stop it
Fight with my heart
And love with my soul
Right down to the very second
Till I’m useless and old
Your love is something I lone for
It’s something I must possess
This feeling I’ll hold in my hand
Then strongly form a firm fist
In my hand I will hold it
And hold it over my heart
This feeling will never leave me
Even when heaven forces us apart

My Dad

There are no words that I could say To describe the man I call dad. Many times I’ve tried to write it down To tell of the best friend I’ve had. He’s strong in every walk of life But yet taught us kindness too His love for God runs so deep For us, he prayed would too His wisdom I always come running to In times I feel I have none… For I know his answers will direct my path And the problem will be done! No better Dad on this earth is found Than the man God gave to me For my precious Father in Heaven knew He would be just what we need…. We have seen him as stable as a rock When facing troubled times We have seen him as humble as could be When his gifts out shine He is there for all he sees in need And quick to make things right But will walk away without a word So no “Thank yous” are in sight He taught me that our Savior sees And knows our thoughts and deeds With God we’re blessed, no need for worry He’ll supply our every need. Oh Lord in Heaven touch my Life Make me be more like Dad For his life is a wonderful example of with God, what we can have Love and care for my precious dad Bless his every need Keep him close, always by my side For his precious love I plead! His Life’s the picture of Your love, Lord He has given all to You How blessed I’ve been to call him dad For men like him are few!

May I Tell Others About Jesus

Jesus, Help Me to Tell Others About YOU!

Jesus, help me to tell others about you today.
Please help and give me the words to say.

The love you’ve given to me.  
You want me to share it!
The burden that I carry...  I alone cannot bear it!

I need your grace to help me to stay humble.
Especially when I begin to complain and grumble!

In this cruel and evil world, be my guiding light!
I know that with you, things will be alright.

You’ve given to me a love that can’t be contained.
May others know the beauty
 there is in your name!

May my heart be filled with a compassion for the lost.
May I not forget to keep my eyes on the cross!

Help me Lord to give others hope, when there is none.
A new person in Jesus, any person can become one!

You, sweet Jesus, are the reason that I’m here.
You bring a love to everyone that’s very sincere!

Thank you dear lord, for helping me!  I’m not strong!
You’ll be there with me, when things seem to go wrong.

I shall speak of your salvation and love wherever I go!
That your spirit, through me, will reach the lost souls!

I will share of this wonderful savior who is mine…
Now is the day of salvation!  Now is the time!

YOUR, DEW DROPS

Shall the truth sprout from my tongue!
That had lied too many,
But I ain't lying to you, my love
For your death, my tears, will compete with the rains,
That fills the oceans, to its full, to its brim,
And the flowers that filled your odor,
Shall not be blown with any of those of the heavens,
I am, with you, in the world of the dead,
Wandering heavily, in search of the odor,
That lighted my nose, my eyes, my heart,
In the world, where the alive, we were.

Oh my flower, shall you sprout again,
I shall never be the winds that make your petals shake,
I shall never be the bee that bite you and steal your nectar,
I shall never be the thorn that hurt you and makes you bleed…,
Oh my love, I will be your dew drops,
That touches your mind to your body,
Drop by drop, make you alive; fill your heart with a gentle chill,
Kiss you, a thousand kiss, make you smoother,
Fill your nectar with the honey, that no bee ever tasted,
Then I will dance with you, and make love to you,
To your entire petals, till I fall and take my last breath.
 
I wasn't a traitor, my love,
I wasn't a liar, my love,
But I cared for you as the light, the sunlight,
That watched you from a distance, from a very long distance
From the spaces, as the sun, as its light,
But couldn't touch, couldn't lay my hands on you,
On your heart, on your mind and couldn't know your pain,
Those made your petals shrink, tired, and fell one by one
Till you fell off in the search of moister, for air,
And took your last breath in front of me and died.

CHRIST THE KING


Christ is born!
 
The luminous armies of righteousness, triumphantly, are  
Marching on, 
While, the defeated dark forces of iniquity, disgracefully,   
In panic retreat
   
Angels sing “Alleluia” 

The heaven’s kingdom of love, at last, established is now, 
Into the enlightened hearts of men

And

Humanity’s hopes for salvation are amplified, since mighty 
The new King is and unconquerable His law, into the souls
Of His subjects, eternally would stay, forever glorifying, His
Holy name!

In each street of the world, want to us to fight their adversaries,   
That they become emperors of the Hell,  
With their thirst for blood and lust for power, 
And with sacrifice of our love, and with tears of our hearts,
But we have billions of Valentines in our hearts with the blessings 
Of Heaven to build a world of peace with harmony of our thoughts, 
So, let’s travel back to February 14, 269 A.D.
To unravel us from the camouflage and gather the smiles of our arts, 
And to fill our souls with the fragrance of spirit of dove, 
To love in the outdoors of the world and not in the secrecy any more,  
To hug and walk down the aisle into the fantasy of our ecstasy! 
Oh, my dear love, don’t worry about our life,
As our life has outlived than the age of our Universe,  
With the eternal moments of our love and of our passion for life; 
The marriages are planned in Heaven and made in the hearts!
So, let’s invite Gods and angels to bless us and our family of lovers, 
Of the World, on this forthcoming Valentine day; 14.02.2013 
While we live and cherish in the magnificence of our love!

Am I Concerned for the Lost

Am I Concerned for the Lost?

For the lost souls…
Am I concerned like I should be?
While many slip into eternity!

With each day that passes me by…
There’s another lost soul
That will die!

I’m too busy to give 
  my time to anyone.
I’ll never be able to reach everyone!

I’ve never led a person in
 the sinner’s prayer.
“Why should I waste my time?”
 “Why should I care?”

I know that Jesus wants
me to reach the lost...
But I’ve never thought about
what this would cost!

I know that Jesus
Is the atonement for sin!
And invites all, to be born again!

May I have a desire
 to reach the lost souls!
If one day, I plan to make
 heaven my goal!

With God’s help,
I pray there will be…
People in heaven, because of
HIM loving through me!

Mercedes White Extended Version

The shadows cast a gray December 
the mist of rain I've wished for dearly 
with my eyes barely shut I still remember 
within my dream my body lie weary, 
this tale be told through admission of sin 
I must admit I've dealt such hand 
of all the places in this world I've been 
I miss most this wonder land, 
for when I lie my body to rest 
Tis the mind that takes this forthright journey 
through the woods and the waters I am the guest 
in a place where the angels guard the wicked that hurt me, 
I reach the docks so crooked and frail 
as the calm of the water reflects in darkness 
with the angel Marie we both set sail 
towards this dream I know and forever harness, 
The sails hold strong as the wind does blow 
as I hold my angel within my arms 
with a silence disrupted by the song of crows 
aside Marie I'm far from harm 
the midnight moon shares its light 
as we near the end of the waters way 
I share a kiss that turns darkness white 
Knowing Marie my dear cannot stay 
for I have reached this land as her my guide 
and from here to there I go alone 
the only rain fall from within my skies 
as I continue closer to a place I know 
All too well I fear some days 
for the abstract mind does grow fonder 
as I reminisce on rested plays 
of all the scenes I've yet to wander 
for within that stray I walk content 
despite the common misadventure 
for the end this path has a hand that's lent 
towards the manor in which I'll enter, 
So onward bound I march my cadence 
with persistence proud beside me 
with a passion so deep as my only payment 
I tear the canvas that tries to hide me, 
and there it was behind the trees 
of the timbers that contained its light 
the house of angels I knew I'd reach 
the house the angels call Mercedes White, 
oh the beauty how the heavens do cry 
for the painted portrait behind its glass 
for the halls that fill with the angel's sigh 
and the fellow femme that gather in mass 
a sight that cries these tears of joy 
oh the wonders of such enchantment 
filled in the minds of only dreaming boys 
is such a place like White so candid 
and now as I stand in front this Eden 
I see with eyes how Gods must miss 
their angels from heaven who are here this evening 
to tell their tales through a whispered white kiss.

In God's Hands

I would like to go to sleep now
If you please and would not mind
I don’t think I want to wake up
Because my true love I cannot find.

I have searched the world over
Look all places high and low
But my true love eludes me
And I have nowhere else to go

So my travels and search is over
I just want to lay down a while and rest
I will try to think of one good reason
To wake up would be for the best.

Right now my heart is failing
And my soul is empty and cold
There is no love to keep it warm
And it is feeling alone and quite old.

I have been looking for the kind of love
That I have never known before
I want to know it just one time
Then I would never ask for anything more

But it seems to be the impossible dream
And I am tired clear to the bone
I would like to go to sleep now
And maybe just go home.

I would walk the path to forever
To a place where there is no “old”
I would be in heaven’s glory
Walking the streets of gold

But wishing won’t make it so
And God has plans for me
He will decide my fate
And pick the day I will be free.

So I will go to sleep now
But not find my eternal rest
 That is in the hands of God
And that will be for the best.

Connie Moore

Life is between your eyes

                                      Life is between your eyes

Life has sent you 
It's heart.
True passion that 
lives in the lullaby of love.
For o how my heart sings out; 
And Heaven has sent you.
For life needs love;
and love needs truth.
And every blessed memory,
that heaven will achieve;
Shall rest in the heart of you.
My only wish 
is to love you 
and be all that you need.
For life has never taste 
so sweet. 
For you are:
my true love,
my sweetheart, 
and my graceful queen.
I love you

HALLELUJAH I'm On the Winning Side

Hallelujah!  I’m on
 the winning side!
Jesus is victorious!  
And pushed back the evil tide!

Hallelujah!  Jesus has given
 me an assurance.
Living for him…  Is the best
 “life insurance!”

HIS policy is FREE!  It asks 
that you serve him!
Won’t you come?  
And take time to know him?

His eternal insurance is life
 that’s everlasting!
“Come follow me!” 
 Is what he’s asking!

I’m thankful to know of the choice
 I’ve made!
A way to eternity, through Christ,
 has been paid!

Are You Offended By God

It seems like there’s many people becoming “defensive.” As anything of God, is seemingly being “offensive.” People can peddle their smut and filth around. But a cross or nativity? They must come down! People can watch acts of fornication on their t.v. But, talking about God? “Why that’s offensive to me!” People often talk about their constitutional “rights.” Perhaps someone upstairs “turned out the lights!” Its amazing how money is spent getting God “removed.” What is it exactly that people are trying to prove? What’s next? Taking “in God we trust,” off our money? It could happen very soon! I’m not trying to be funny! Think about what’s happening and taking place! We’re told that we can’t pray in public? Or say grace? This whole country is being turned “upside down.” Our very foundations are being “tossed around!” In what’s being pursued as “political correctness…” Has left in many lives… A total weakness! God is being replaced what is “socially appealing.” Much of what’s in our society has no real meaning! A person can marry anyone they want, or smoke pot.. But what the truth of God’s word, can’t be taught? It’s time that we come to God, and totally repent! Before another wasted day we have spent! Sooner or later, God’s judgment will come out! Our lives need to be changed, and cleansed throughout! Jesus is the answer! Our only hope of salvation! We need him now! All across this great nation! By Jim Pemberton

Christ Wants to Be With Us


Christ Wants to Be With Us! In all of Christ’ glory and splendor… He died, that I may live with him forever! He came down and lived with sinful men… To one day be the sacrifice for sin! He came to earth… No matter the cost… He bled and died on the old rugged cross. He came to die for you and me! Only to cry; “father, why have you forsaken me?” He gave his life for mine! The price was paid! A way to heaven… Through him… Was made! He gave his life! What more could he give! He’s so patient and willing to forgive! He’s here! And is waiting for you! He offers salvation! What will you do? He shall always love us! Can’t you see? He wants to be with us! For eternity! By Jim Pemberton

Today I Saw A Bird

Today I saw a bird flying in the sky..it reminded me of you.  I opened up my window and let it come thru, it sang me a song  and  put  me to sleep, and in my dream took me to where you would be. I took hold of your hand and looked  in your eyes, then told you how  I’ve missed you  and  tried not to cry.  We spent  all day laughing and talking about things,  reminiscing on old memories and how long its been.  We layed in a meadow and  stared  at the sky , I  turned my head gently as a tear left my eye.  The sky slowly got  darker as night time grew near, you  looked  at me and said,  ‘‘ There’s nothing to fear,  I’ll always be with you, in good times and bad and one day we’ll be together  again so please don’t  be sad.. Its time for you to wake up now and get back to your life, and I’ll be here waiting for you on the day you arrive.’’ Today I saw a bird, it reminded me of you ..I opened up my window.. And let it come thru..

Dance

I see heaven in the blue of her eyes.  I see a beautiful angel here with me tonight. You
dance in my heart.  Your symphony plays inside of my head.  I want to take your rhythm and
move it from the floor to my bed.
I fall to my knees, fall to my knees and pray.  Heaven don't let me let this girl go.  Can
she forever stay?

And we'll dance for love.  Dance to all the things that make us whole. And we'll dance for
love.  May our burning hearts never grow cold.

I'll love you forever if love is all it takes to keep you mine.  And we'll stand strong
together.  I promise to be your rock for all time. 
You're my queen, my angel.  You're everything I've ever dreamed of.  You're the air I
breathe.  The oxygen I'm so desperately in need of.

And we'll dance for love.  Dance until the stars come out to play.  And we'll dance for
love.  Dance until those stars begin to fade.

I'll follow you wherever.  I'll never let you walk this world alone.  I'll always have a
shelter.  Standing next to you feels like home. I love you more each passing day.  I've
never felt so high as I do now.  Being with you is the closest thing to flying.  Not even
gravity could bring me down.

And we'll dance for love.  Dance for all the words left unspoken.  And we'll dance for
love.  Dance for all the hearts that once were broken.

You hold your head up high despite all the things that try to break you.  And I love who
you are.  The good and the bad and all else that makes you.
You are the other half of me; the better part that completes me as a man.
And you'll never have to be gone for me to know exactly what I have.

And we'll dance for love.  Dance for an eternity of days.  And I'll dance for you.  You're
beautifully imperfect and I wouldn't take you any other way.

Ocean of Love

Like nothing I've ever seen before
Your eyes I have fallen for. 
Drowning in your love. 
Barely keeping my head above. 
Emerse me in your smile
Treat me to heaven for just awhile.
Deep in your eyes so true.  
My eyes lock on photos of you. 
Swim into my mind. 
As I feel our souls will bind.
Burrowed into my heart. 
Nothing could keep us apart. 
Fall asleep now lets meet in your dreams. 
My version of heaven that's how it seems.

A PRAYER IN THE DARK

As a youth,i thought the sky was heaven.

Structured a tower  into the condensed clouds but was thrown down by rain
 and broke  into pieces that weren't even.

Then i molded my desires into bricks for six days hoping to convert my dreams into reality and rest on the sabath,
on day seven.

I prayed to God but the devil answered,"am i closer to tell than heaven?",i wondered.

Curiously i cross checked the time,only to realize seven comes before six among the days of the week in order,
regardless the number.

Now that i am grown,i know the truth,

Heaven is a spirit,
We cant see it,
But can only feel it.

So i pray with my heart,the answers becomes visible to my eyes when ever i listen with my mind.

If life is all vanity and inventions are products of imaginations,
then i must live in my mind and dream in reality.

When i feel depressed Am i blind?,
 
When confronted with night mares,and i scream out a name i believe is love,am i kind?, 

Asleep i pray that when i wake,my mind be calm like the water flow down the hill into the stream.  

because the answer of every prayer is peace.

A prayer in the dark,
Seek and you shall find.

Needs

I want your embrace to be everlasting 
I never want to forget how your eyes
glimmer softly when you smile
I want your cologne to linger on me
so It's known that I'm yours 
I want to hold your hand so tight 
our fingerprints fuse into one 
I never want to forget the feeling that 
overwhelms me when you call me beautiful 
I want to fall asleep with my head on your chest 
every night in hopes that eventually our heartbeats 
would match.

BLACK MADONNA

   Do you know of the icon of "The Black Madonna"?
   She is the Patron of Poland to this day.
   It is not the icon I write about
   But, the young Maiden, Who is 'Queen of Heaven" today.

   Her name is Mary, the Virgin Mother of Christ
   Whose intercessions for us I seek each day.
   The turmoil in our world could perhaps be averted
   If we beseech Her help on our way.

   We know that She is not only an historical figure
   As we, so often think of Jesus Her Son.
   She is a living, gentle, caring person
   Amongst those, whose hearts She has won.

   She has shrines devoted to Her in many places
   Lourdes, Fatima, Chestochowa, and Medjugorjie too.
   Places where She has appeared to others
   That we may know that Her words are true.

   Although you may not be a believer
   One day, we shall find Her pleading our case.
   Before the Son She brought into this world
   That from us, He should not turn His face.

   I know that some, whose beliefs are far from mine
   May scoff and take offense at these words that I write.
   But for me to deny my own beliefs
   Could never my heart make right.

   So, today I write about this Eternal Woman
   To Whom my prayers each day include.
   For Her comforting spirit I pray for all
   Whether Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, or Hindu.

   My faith in Her is something that I must have
   To get me through the trials of each day.
   Though undeserving of Her love that I am
   For it, I quietly pray.

   I waned to write about Her strength, humility, and obedience
   And of Her acceptance when the Angel came to call.
   I often wish that I could be more like Her
   Instead of the person that I have been to all.

   She had the humility to be obedient
   And the strength to see it through.
   I am too proud and rarely listen
   Because of my weaknesses which are obvious to you.

   So, I now ask each one of you
   Of whatever belief you may be.
   To include a prayer to the Lord above
   For Her, to help strengthen me.

   If your words are clear and pure of heart
   Please think of me and pause...
   That they will be heard in Heaven above
   To benefit my soul's undeserving cause.

   Perhaps, one day I will find "The Black Madonna"
   Not as depicted, in Her shrine to see.
   But, in Her place in Heaven on high
   Where Her gentle love may one day comfort me.

Korean Commas

What am I to say to you dear sweet Jim
You have chased me away and now I am gone
But what about you broken by your promises
To me it's a sad old song, you've been gone for way to long
I doubt you knew, fondly whispered memories- same old song
For me there is and will be nothing left to do
You could never now complete the man I knew
The words were clear I was left in the shadows now with out you
Same old memories same old you I cried untill heavens turned blue
I am not ready for challenge I will not play the game
I am still hurt from the memories, hiding from the pain
Embarrassed becasue I am left standing here this way
Alone because of a man whose arms I have held so long
Caught burying worries and facing all the blame
But what about you, forgive yourself and start again 
You'll be the same old guy to all of them

2010 - Miss You A Lot Dad

It breaks my heart
To think and say
That you beloved dad
have gone away
Far very far
From your loved ones
For your time in this world 
Was over and done

I miss your loving
And caring smiles
I miss your hugs
And walk for miles
I miss your hands
That you always rose
To bless our lives
With prayers and grace

I love you dad
And pray for you
May God open the door
Of heaven and hue
And fill your path
With the shine of bliss
More than we can
Ever for you wish

I hope and pray
From God who is dear
To keep you safe
Under His bliss and care
And wish one day
We meet in heaven above
Under God's treasure of
Unaccountable care and love.

May Your Soul Rest In Peace Dad.
I love you a lot and will always miss you.

Hushed To Silence

Hushed to silence the city sleeps
The calming of hatred and angry eyes
In the plains of Heaven angels weep
For lives of untold lies
In which the city cries.
   Tis the soul that warms the night
Where love does not despair
On wings of serenity held in flight
To the castle in the air
For enchanted evening prayer.
   Blessed are they, the souls of Man
The eyes of steady dripping
A feast awaits in timely plan
With heart shaped glasses for sipping
Where loveliness is gripping.
   The earth below in turmoiled smoke
A death of kingly sin
The broken table of Shumard Oak
His shattered setting of Chateaubriand Marchand De Vin
The war subsided within.
   To Heaven rise the innocents
Where peace and love reside
With cries of song in laments
Those souls now cast aside
The rule of Jehovah applied.

A Dreamless Tree Dweller

Swaying. Dancing. Let me carry you.
Dance for me. Dance for me. Dance for me.
It's beautiful how you hold on so tight, but reach so far.

Up and Up and Up.
Begging sunshine and starlight and moon beams to fill your cupped palm.
We' can sip from it together but we both know you'll never be satisfied
Until your silver leaves can dance to the symphonies of singing constellations.

The diamonds sprinkling down your face would look like tears.
But you, and I? We both know this isn't real. Put away your fears
And dream for me. Dream for me. Dream for me


And please darling, Let us never wake.

love is like breathing

You know your true heart,
when you put your own 
troubles aside.

Getting down on your knees
to show love, where true 
sorrow resides.

The true meaning of love 
flowing forth from above

It's as natural as breathing,
you shouldn't need a reason.

Lyrics on life story by Peter White

Angelic life- that is how it was meant to be,
Glorious life- that is how it is going to be.
Together we shall row the boat in harmony,
Together we shall sow the seeds of eternity.

The wonderful 'we' shall carve a niche of reality,
A kingdom which shall know only the lights of felicity,
For love holds the essence to life's litany,
The essence of sublimity.
Love is generous,
Love is precious.

Alway there

Quickly falling waves crashing against rocks rain falling heavily. Listen. sunlight dim hidden. dark clouds continue to leak. Loud thunder rolls. Lightning in the background. Heart pounding racing clothes soaked dripping. water splashes, still falling. Voice quite. He reaches down and grabs me, he says have faith for I've been here all along. And I love u.

Heaven Knows

So you told it to the Moon
You wished for it on the Stars
You've prayed for it above
And Angels sing hymns of your undying love
Yes Heaven knows
Yes Heaven knows
But there still someone who
Needs to hear it from you

If you love someone
You got to tell her
If you love someone
She's got to know it too
If you ever want her
To start loving you

Prayers aren't ever answered
If you never follow through
Now that Heaven knows you love Her
Isn't it time She knows it too?

Propitiation

He was cursed outside the camp
and he is Gods flaming Lamp
his tears not have been forgotten
he is the only Son begotten

His thoughts are always prayer
that mankind learn to care
and in his Word we live
when we ourselves forgive

On a donkey did he ride
with the high priests did collide
Son of David appointed King
through whom Gods salvation bring

Voice he lifted in God's praise
to the God of ancient days
his linage is completely filled
with those whom law might have killed

Upon your laws did he meditate
and he for us does mediate
Sacred is the Holy One
that bonds of sin may be undone

The only man born pure of heart
for love of humans did heaven depart
Sacrificed life as Gods Firstborn Son
then born into a human one

Life sacrificed not one but two
to rejoin heaven and earth anew
to circumscribe universal law
for a higher purpose he foresaw

The Law is a teacher for our instruction
but cannot change unlawful destruction
with spirit of Love does Jesus empower
far above precept of law to tower

With perfect Love he chose disgrace
that those who sin might know Love's face
to heal our hearts and know God's mind
by chains of slavery be not defined

Unworthy we are that for us he died
and the effects upon all when Satan lied
purchased from law to give us freedom
and live in Love within his kingdom

Boy, your my heaven sent angel.
Your my best friend, 
always protecting me,

Your my boyfriend,

You put aside all my faults and imperfection's,

No one has ever treated me like im a princess, 
No one has never held my mistakes

And no one has ever put aside my faults

Your World

Today I wake to see a lovely day,
It's beauty and it's magesty unfurled.
I know that Heaven is more glorious,
But Lord above, I truly love your world.

You didn't stint with color, form nor love,
When you gave me this Earth on which to live;
And if I rate it more than what's to come
I pray thee Lord, my ignorance forgive.

The fruiting trees, with their delightful gifts,
Enticing me to stay another day,
The gathered birds, preparing for a flight,
Are more in touch than I am of the way

We are to live, aware of the world's worth
And then move on to Heaven's grand array.
Is it such sin to long to linger here
When I remember how it is in May?

I would not leave when a new spring surrounds
Nor when  the summer breezes scent the air
And in the fall, enthralling with its charms,
I can't conceive that Heaven is more fair.

When all the trees with winter's frost are pearled,
Oh Lord above, I truly love your world.

MUSIC

Music is the voice of God
Music is the echo of life
Music is the food of life

Music was Lucifer who body emits musical notes and melodies
What would we have done without music?
Music when played brings people of different and generations together

I love music because it draws me closer to my creator
I love music because it launches me to the holy of holies where all of life’s problems vanish because of the awesomeness of God’s glorious splendor

Certainly, the language heaven understands is music because when the activity of the earth ends, we shall only sing songs, play music 
And dance to the holy order of music supllied by heaven and the creator

May the God of music be enthroned and worshipped forever
Let the music begin

more worrying, no more  suffering you will  be happy  within god's hands.
heaven is a wonderful place  for you and me!

Won't You come In Jesus' Name

Won’t you come in Jesus’ name?
And allow him to remove your shame?

Won’t you come and bow down before him?
And give him your praise? Worship and adore him?

Won’t you come?  Your name, he’s calling!
The time is now!  There’s no need for “stalling.”

Won’t you come, and let him refresh you!
He wants to change and really bless you!

By his blood, your sins can disappear!
His love for you is very evident and clear!

By his word, you can be made brand new!
You can be changed, and totally renewed!

By the time this day is over and ended…
Your life can be forgiven and “amended!”

By the time you may  feel like you’re alone…
Why not invite him to be the lord of your home!

By the time you think about how you’re living…
You can receive all, that God is giving!

Come one and all!  And sit at Jesus’ feet!
Only his love can make your life complete!

If Heaven Could Wait by Kenny Davis

If Heaven Could Wait by Kenny Davis

If heaven could wait
If only for a year
If only, but a slight moment longer
One chance more to hold her near

If heaven could only wait
If only just for a night
That my eyes may have a chance at one last glance
At her beauty once more in the moonlight

If heaven could only wait
If only for one last sunrise
A moment to gaze upon the majestic horizon
As the sun glistens from her eyes

If heaven could only wait
If only for an hour
Time to hold her tight
Before a time spent without her

Lord, why would you bless me with a love like this
Only to have it taken away
Can I please just have this one moment longer?
Oh, if heaven could only wait

If heaven could only wait
All I simply ask for is time
For the man who is blessed to have her heart
And for the woman proudly holding mine

Is it possible for heaven to wait?
If only for, but a season
One last chance to cherish moments with her
Please allow me this minute more within reason

Lord, please understand
Leaving her so soon, is very hard
To call up my soul from hers
Would cause me to shed heartbroken tears from the stars

Can Heaven have a time to wait?
To avoid this momentary hurt
Although I would love nothing more than to be with you Lord
She is, but my only tie here to this Earth.

After all of this pain, all of this time
I have finally found the one you have made for me
You have divinely favored me to find true love here on Earth
Only to tell me now I must leave?

If heaven could only wait
Long enough to have one last cry
As I look into her eyes, as we say our last goodbyes
Before you call me in the sky

It’s hard to say such things as this
When being with her and God means so much
I would die to be with both of them
From them, I would die for one last touch

Letting go of the past

 Leave your past behind,

 take a look with fresh eyes.

 View the world with heart

 felt emotion, love and

 devotion. Your eyes were

 wide shut, now they have

 been truly opened up. From

 Heaven above, let your heart

 overspill with love.

The Better View

I gave it all away for a moment 
I would have done it for a second 
Because the truth us held deep in the mind 
And so very rarely does it find its way to the tongue
Or release itself from blackened lungs
You must live to regret 
If you have done no such thing you have not lived 

She told me she hates my depression 
Asking what is my obsession 
And why is it something never mentioned 
Did I make you think 
Aw sweetie are my thoughts finally sinking in 
I’m looking down with a grin 
She longs to be up there with him 
She’s wondering was he forgiven for his sins
In her mind they all added up and he dissolved them and drank them down 

“God has he found happiness”
“I hope he still remembers the kiss of morning dew”
“Will”
“God damn you”
“Together we were just the few”
“Alone we are just me and you”
She is screaming hard into the sea and praying into the sun
I hate to tell her its useless to prey 
I’m not burning in hell I guess I played my little role pretty damn well
“He had such an abstract view”
“I bet in heaven there is laughter only because of you”
“God does he now sing to you as if some how in cue”

Sweety heaven is made of memories of us two
and it holds no resemblance to perfection 
Because perfection is an idea and affection
That I felt down there with you
Can you hear me floating outside your window I’m singing softly keep time with 
the pitter patter of rain on your shutters 
I came back to tell you imperfection was my obsession

In the sobering hours, I realize this is all just a reversal of roles
And maybe it was what I was thinking at the time 
But in that peaceful serenity of screams I went blind
And my tears fell like rain from the sky 
My voice swelled and crack in steady time 
In this instance I saw the light 
Far off in the distance at the end of the rail line
I wish I could conjure up a lie 
Like it was dust in my eye

But I’m too busy singing 
About an empty shore line 
A misplaced memory tossed into the sea
And all that I’ve hoped to have forgotten 
Has gotten itself incapsuled in a line
Of some depressing song that I’m inclined to keep singing 
But after the rains the black rose will emerge 
And purge from my heart every haunting memory
Because the power of the mind is worthless 
If it is not producing fiction to soothe the quiet addiction of the heart
I hope everyone will see that the suffering
Is universal and it’s a course for all of us to bare

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

The pain was so real for my brother Nate. We did not see the signs of the way he 
was feeling. If he cried out for help and let us know. My dear bother would still be 
hear and with the proper medicine he would begin to heal. What was you 
thinking  of that October day. When you took your own life that  ended so suddenly 
that way. Did you feel you were not loved and for that split second ended your life 
instead of calling for help before you plunged in the water. What was on your 
mind when you put your hands up with despair. And down in the water went the 
car on that October day. Did you cry out did you try and pray. Did you find the pain 
on this earth too much to cope. Dearest brother you are very missed it is sad but 
true. Have I not told you more often that I do love you. I feel a loss without you 
hear. I wish you were not gone I wish you were near. I can't stand the pain it is too 
hard to bear Too For I look to this day that I wish I can change. That I made more 
time with you my brother now it too late because you are in heaven with the 
angels on high  I will always love you my dear brother Nate you will always hold a 
special place in my heart until we meet again in heaven the most beautiful place 
where we will have no more tears and pain. Dearest brother until we meet again 
I will love you always until the day when I die I will join you then only then we will 
not depart.

One starry skied night, I lay in the grass
Reflecting on relationships, people of years past
And then I see her: walking down heaven's steps
The memories rushed back, as if she never left
My eyes tear up, and I tell her "I miss you"
Her smile illuminated the night, and replied "I miss you too"
I asked "Do you hate me for how things ended?"
She answered, "We're all human: maybe thats what God intended"
I explained that I regret all my mistakes
She chuckled as a tear trickled down her face
She told me "I've never been more proud of you
I sometimes wish I could leave heaven for you"
I held her hand and looked into her angelic eyes
I had to ask, "Did you think I was different from other guys?"
She said "With you, there were no other guys
You were, and always will be, my everything
Although I know, you'll probably call some other lucky girl your everything
I came see you to let you know I love you"
I replied "I love you too"
This moment couldn't be true
I said, "Could you stay with me forever?"
She replied, "No, but you could talk to me whenever
Heaven's not too far away
I promise you'll be okay
Not only is God watching, I'm watching you too
Just know your in my heart whatever you do"
The stairway to heaven appeared, she said "I have to go"
I beckoned for her to stay, but I had to let her go
Before she departed, she gave me a kiss
I cried, but I smiled; I needed this
I watched her take step by step
I could feel her leaving; breath by breath
My soul then came to terms with her time limit
She'll always be mine; body and spirit.
<3


In case you're wondering, the "she" i'm referring to is my ex-girlfriend Jonera Auriel
Raymond, who was killed (along with her brother) by a drunk driver on March 20, 2008.

The stars of heaven are falling down without you

I pray for you when I see them shooting in the sky
There dust falls off them as they burn up and fly by
I see their tail glow as they glimmer in the night
They remind me always of you as they leave my sight

I look up for a sign to help me pull through
But the stars of heaven are falling down without you 

I know I would be better if I had you near
They’re burning brighter and my need is severe
They hit the ground over and over one by one
Your absence stabs my heart like these little pieces of sun

I look up for a sign to help me pull through
But the stars of heaven are falling down without you

My world crashes as they hit the earth
I need your love to give my life a rebirth
Hopefully fate will bring us together sooner or later
My soul has a hole like their impact leaves a crater

I look up for a sign to help me pull through
But the stars of heaven are falling down without you

I know

We All Make Mistakes in Life
 this I've Come to Know
 but All the Mistakes I've Made
 Have Somehow Helped Me Grow.
 
 No One I Know Is Perfect
 I Happen to   Know this Too
 I Am Very Very Sorry
 I Am Not Perfect for You.
 
 I've Searched for Perfect All My Life
 for Someone Who Had All the Love
 I Found it Not Long Ago...
 It Came from up Above.
 
 When All the Earthly Things Are Gone
 and  I Have Nothing Left but My Soul
 I Will Bask in Heavens Light
 and this I Also Know.

Gifts of today

The rain was falling as the sun hit the sky.
A rainbow appeared it just caught my eye.
Tears from heaven as the angels do cry.
Tears lost inside the rainbow, way up high.

My imagination runs wild I wonder what’s at the end?
That illusive pot of gold may be around the next bend.
Or perhaps it a place where all your dreams come true,
Maybe all of these things above are just up to you.

I awake this morning with a smile on my face,
As you take my hand and guide me to a safe place.
A place where contentment and love shall grow,
The more love you give the more you will know.

I drive off to work, I simply haven’t a care.
As a matter of fact I can’t wait to get there.
It seems all the pieces just join together.
I drift through life much like a feather.

I dream of flying because I know I can.
I find myself back at where I began.
Though it’s familiar, it’s not quite the same.
I know what it is but can’t think of the name.

The day flies by as my mind finds peace.
I look at the puzzle I found a new piece.
Everything seems different when you feel love.
It seems much like a gift from heaven above.

His Tears

His tears has fallen a oceans they have made.
His  heart is broken once again.
His tears fill oceans once again more, his love is lost without a thought. His tears were never-ending until his son did appear.  He took the world sin and placed it on him.
Giving man a second chance Jesus chose to do this for Gods love of this world. And for his father of heaven great land.
Were man can now enter into because of Jesus great love that was within him. So get back on your knees thank God for your life and heaven great land. His tears are falling for our  souls are you ready for his great love, heaven holy land 
Get on your knees pray,  for another day for we are not promised one but we are promised heaven holy land

coffee and songs at 5 am

It must have been the sunrise
All the wrongs that I don’t see
The truths hidden within your lies
All the songs that I don’t sing

It must’ve been nirvana
For I cannot heal
And I can’t be your wonders
For I do not live

And heaven can’t have her
For angels do not kill
And Satan can love her
But he cannot feel

It must’ve been the silence
The doubt within your unseen words
If I could’ve just finished what i had to say
Everything you said I would’ve heard

After all of the shouting 
The commotion in your screams
After all your anger
Did you accomplish everything you knew

And heaven can’t have her
For angels do not kill
And Satan can love her
But he cannot feel

And it must’ve been the sunrise
How solemn you sat
And It could’ve been the song
All alone you sang

I’m not promised tomorrow but I am with you
A chandelier in her borrowed clothes
These are the songs a man sings to himself
Before the mirror breaks

"songs left within her despair"

For My Future Children

Once all alone. 
From this world, 
I was lost. 
But now I'm found. 

The heavens, 
heard me cry. 
and sent a gift 
that's from the stars. 

You are the sun, 
that brightens my day. 
You're my world, 
that takes the pain away. 

You give me the reason 
to live every day. 
You're the reason, 
for my smile to stay. 



~~I just wrote from the top of my head. I love kids and I want to write something for my own kids that I can recite or sing to them after they're born someday. What do you think?

The Visit

11:21 PM 9/27/01                         The Visit

I sit in splendor amongst the sun
Of an afternoon sky

Surrounded
I look below to see the stones
Skyward proud they stand

Some I know, most imagined
All the quieter now

Deer travel the fringes here
Off to the East a bit
Never to offend these resting souls
Passersby in life

In a moment of silence I sit......
Remembering 
How precious life can be

How voices no longer heard
Can resound within the soul
Lighten the sky in brilliance
Form clouds in shapes of love

Me in the afternoon sun
And you in my beating heart

A reflection of the day

the man on the cross

there once was a man who died for our sins,
theat knock us down like bowling pins,
he turned water into wine,
he shared his love that was quite divine,
what im trying to say is always have hope,
so go to churh and visit a pope.

I am a hero of old

I am a Hero of Old
I walk naked, with my life a canvas for the world to ridicule,
I am forced to walk nonetheless.
I am the object of a nation’s derision, as I walk the street embracing rejection.
But the Lord?
The Lord is my rock and my salvation!
For I have been baptized into his sufferings.
I have been baptized into the confusion of discovering my divine identity.
I walk the streets,
I walk the highway,
I walk the corridors of friends that mock my weakness.
But in his weakness, I am made me strong.
The humility to become less for the good of a greater revelation,
This is my privilege.
And though I be on meds,
And though I have breakdowns.
I continue, I will not relent, for it is my destiny to touch the sky in hope.
And recover.
I am a veteran of a war against a mind that would persecute me,
I am the recipient of a mind, that knows compassion, and this compassion torments in its
softness.
I am tough, for I have endured the rejection of the multitudes.
And no sanctuary can destroy the reality of my endurance.
And yet I endure?
Why, so I can tell my story and destroy the yoke of hopelessness.
Why, so I can witness to the power of God to never give up on me.
Why, so I can tell the world, that yes I am weak, but I am a hero of old.
For when it came time to choose between the life I walk and heaven eternal!
I chose to endure.
Why, so that you can see me shining in my glory, a hero of old.
Lisa, Michael, Sita, Louetta, Beth, Bubba, and women walking the streets gaunt, lost, but
not defeated.
For soon you will see me rise, into the stratosphere of the beauty that drives me.
And when I see you, I will forgive your derision.
And we will fellowship in that sound of symphonious reckoning,
For my story, is the story of human redemption,
My story, is the story of souls, old, tired, tormented, but not defeated.
And when you hear it, you will cry tears of admiration.
For when I had to choose, between the life I walk and heaven eternal!
I chose to tell you, that it can be done!
It can be accomplished, this mystery of wholeness that evades us.
For in the end, the two men between me, the voices that berate me, the delusions that
diminish my resolve.
Cannot compare, to the glory of his friendship.
And through that sorrow, I will transcend pity and know joy.
I am a hero of Old, and though my mind would rebel.
My soul is strong like the prophets before me.
Amen.

A Warm Mist

It is that of your body next to mine as if it was from an ocean spray of mist                     
with warmth in mind. 
As if it was of a hearts desire to feel that of a delicate rose silk flower. 
To know of it’s elegance and beauty, only to smell and taste that 
of a warm mist of beauty. 
To lay with something of such curves of standing would make one’s heart                        
race for a Winston Cup standing. 
That in heaven he has found one of out standing, which brings a warm mist about.            
Not of eyes but of heart instead, that to love one would be like heaven instead.               
That it’s like a dream come true to have you.                                                                
That in all I know, not only have I got beauty instead but 
I’ve got that of heart because you got mine instead. 
Just a thought of you is a warm mist to me but to be next to you would be an ocean breeze. 
Filled with that of a sunshine breeze but with that of a cooling mist. 
That in my heart plays the mist of time and that’s you here with me in time. 
And us making loving like it was going out of style.                                                          
As I feel that of your passion unfold and become that of a warm mist heart. 
All wrapped up in nothing but skin as I taste that of your juices drip in. 
As we involve our bodies in that of a warm mist spring and we sweat like its rain. 
It is that of the rain that makes the mist, as that ocean wave blows at a twist. 
You can see the colors for miles, that to which is the bottom side of that ocean wave. 
That like you, its beauty shines through; that with every wave is a warm mist 
blown through. 
That I know I have caught the biggest wave because with you, 
there’s a beauty blown my way.
And in my heart I think of us laid on a beach this day, with nothing but                             
the wind and a warm mist spray..

Won't You Come to God


Won’t you seek God with all of your heart? Getting on your knees in prayer is a good place to start! Come close to God and he'll come close to you. His word will be your guide in what you do. Hunger for his righteousness... and be filled! Drawing close to Jesus is what God has willed! He desires an intimate love... more than words can say! Come to him now... with no more delay! Trust him with all of your heart... not your own understanding. In everything...acknowledge him... and heed his commanding! Obey his command to serve with body, soul and mind. Everlasting peace and love you will surely find! His desire for you to know and love him is never ending. Come to him now... please... no more "pretending." Won’t you reach out today… and call on his name? His love for you is forever and will never change! Won’t you allow him to bring joy and pure delight? Please come to him now… Why not tonight?

Two Dimensional Love and Life

            Two Dimensional Love and Life

Some lines move horizontally
Others go diagonal
There are lines that travel up and down
They all make love within their set parameters
As is their culture and tradition there
Always within the lines, as is their prerogative and mission

For years Mr. E-line traveled from the east alone
One day he stumbled into Le Le Ling, from a line of high position
Coming from the east straight at him without permission
She was a fine line worth knowing, from a noble lineage
Both wanted sex directly when they met

They fell in linear love from point to point
Neither could continue forward, nor go up or down
And forget about left and right, as their world was flat and straight
They had to do everything frontal and did so on the spot

In the two dimensional realm you were caste from birth
To mate with someone from your universe
From your circle so to speak
Obviously they are lines so let’s proceed

In any case they came from flat lands of the east and west
Horizontal was the only life they knew
Le Le Ling and E- line were destined for each other

Other lines outside of Horizontal World were frowned upon
Diagonals were out of fashion, up and down too
Looked down upon in flat land prejudicial manner
Though “down” in their reality was not an option

Other dimensions did not exist for them
From their narrow point of view

Mr. And Mrs. Line had a baby line one day
They named it Little Liner
Raise it to be direct and true
And straight as an arrow too

In their religion there is only one commandment
Look in front of you to find your way to heaven
Since you have no other direction any way
Stay in line, head toward the light to find the truth

I was chosen to be loved by you

I often wondered what heaven would be like
I have to look no further than in your eyes
For I see all that is pure and good
The window of the soul tells no lies.

To feel your presence when you’re not here
Now, I know the feel of an angel’s breath
God has given me a moment’s grace
For I have known heaven before death.

In you I have found a rare quiet peace
A love so exquisite, strong and true
Through heavens pearly gates I’ll walk
Through life and death I’ll wait for you

For heaven on earth I have known
I am one of the lucky, chosen few
That for a moment, here on earth
I was chosen, to be loved by you.

Heaven

As I lay here in my bed
pen in hand, thoughts in head

I remember those who have passed away
and i know ill see them again someday

Some ill meet, some i knew
Angels will guide me through,

Brightly lit, refreshing smells
will tell me i didnt go to hell

Huge castles and works of art
and heaven has its own Walmart.

No on is to fat or to thin
everyone love the skin their in

Cookies bake all day long
And a thought plays your favorite song.

Smoking is permitted, food can be junk
and 10 Corona's wont make you drunk

Angels fly by to lead the way
everyone is hard at play.

flags fly high in the air
heaven is beautiful, i have to stare.

glistening walls and floors of gold
each person has God's promise they will never grow old

happiness over flows and the hurt is gone
A fountain can make a brunette a blonde

There is no sickness, no need for pills
everything is all down hill

Smiles fill every face
no anger, shame, or disgrace

God is our father and he greets with love
making you see he has been waiting above

waiting just for me and all his sheep
His love is mine to forever keep

My dream of heaven is a happy one
Since im gods child, ill be there when my days are done

No Fear

I do not shudder at the thought of my passing
For my Lord has promised me life everlasting
Death will seem to have fulfilled its endeavor
But instead, I'll be more alive than ever

I need not fear the icy kiss of death
At that moment when I take life's last breath
For the Lord Jesus Christ will usher me home
In His loving arms, I won't be alone

In those last final moments, He'll come to my side
And gently lead me to where I'll abide
Warmly embraced in His loving care
Forever and ever in Heaven so fair

Here's just a little glimpse of what Heaven is like
No sorrows, no tears, carefree as a tike
Pure joy and happiness that will never end
Wouldn't you like to have a part in this, my friend?

Do you have the same peace and assurance as I
To carry you through on the day that you die?
For the time will come,  just as sure as you were born
So it's crucial, today, to get right with the Lord

If you choose to reject Him, let this be your warning:
You choose an eternity of sorrow and mourning
An unending state of torturous dying
Apart from God's love, you'll be moaning and crying

He patiently waits, but please don't delay
Make your Creator also your Savior, today
Repent of your sins, His forgiveness you'll receive
Give Jesus your heart, trust and believe

He's our Mediator to God the Father
There's no other way, so don't even bother
Take no heed to false religions of today
For those counterfeit beliefs claim to show the way

But Jesus says He is the Life, the Way, the Truth
That He has risen from the dead is the living proof
So ask, and He'll be with you at your final breath
How wonderful it is to have no fear of death!

Dominion

Therein to link the world her seasons with our light distain
made plain the movement through them let her darkness there remain
towards the call of fellowship whose mastery is True
transformation is Just beginning whose personality is made New

Your hand Oh Lord upon them and clothe them as your own
instruction unto diligence till they all be grown
you lead them to the Father and so by him be known
opened minds to understanding all that you have shown

Lord you are and Master of Law and universe
upon the heavens and fields of earth there do you traverse
to collect the sacrifices that to your God do give
those who will lay down their lives so that others therein live

For what is Love but sacrifice so another can have joy
this is the requirement that Jesus disciples do employ
for him they are in service as the God of Loves envoy
those who gain the mastery will be like Jesus a viceroy

They've named them gods through history whose power has been nil
but Jesus demonstrated energy that is never standing still
to gods of gold of wood of stone to truth they draw not near
the requirement of the Love thy neighbor they do not hold dear

Those who pretend at reverence and ritual do fool
who worship not in spirit and truth who are but adversaries tool
upon them bind a heavy burden and stray from shining light
there guide them into a pit and grave of eternal night

For you have finely numbered those who be your own
those whose number can't be counted find the earth as home
and quoth the spirit against those that be gods named
who have fouled the Truth and the God of Heaven shamed

For God has changed from stone children to Abraham
the meek and the righteous ones to inherit the given land
like the rains of Truth from empyrean do fall
the seven spirits of the church have sent out the call

Jah did empty Heaven of the Bright and Morning Star
upon his wings did send the message to collect those near and far
For God himself did offer his own Son the sacrifice
to set us free from sin and guilt and embedded vice

For the fields are ripened and soon the sickle thrust
the angel who can read our hearts those corrupt or just
restless is the beast and his dominion over man
those who worship devils are marked in head and hand

again unable to post whole piece

Safely Home

I am in Heaven dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the ones I have come to know and love
Are all with me now in the clouds above.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus’ love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus’ arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
The heart that once throbbed warmly in my chest, Is now at a calm and peaceful rest.
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond Earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust our Father’s Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

We can sit and reminisce on our wonderfully magical journey that brought us to this point of never ending bliss. We could hold each other close, with hands interlocked together as a solemn acknowledgment to the world that you are mine and i am yours through heavenly heights happiness and the darkest deepest depths of sorrow. As we gaze up to the sky and sit in awe of the splendor of the night sky filled with stars that sparkle like flame of a candle in pitch black darkness. I look into your eyes and see heaven on earth. The eyes of an angel, with a heart made of gold. My search for my souls counterpart has been fulfilled far beyond my expectations. My heart soars to the highest heaven when you are near, knowing this is love.

Always Remember me

Always Remember Me 

Always remember me the one who came and die for you.
My name is Jesus I love you with all my heart, I hung on the cross not by nails. But I hung there for my love for you.
And give you heaven my home , the change to see my father 
always remember me.
Because I never forgot you I forgave you, and all that you had done onto me.
I die for all to live always remember me, my child come give your life, soul body and mind to me.
So I can share my gift with you forevermore.
Where no tears or pain can enter into my city of heaven for it my home. 
The world will have no part in my spiritual home, where we all  may live always remember me Jesus

As In the Days of Noah


As In the Days of Noah… As in the days of Noah, there was wickedness in the land!. So shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man! There were many forms of ungodliness that were enjoyed! Until the day of the flood... Then it was all destroyed! Imagine building an ark that took one hundred and twenty years! The labor it took! Throughout the blood, sweat and tears! The people laughed, and thought Noah was “out of his mind.” But soon, the wrath of God, is what they would find! God gave them a chance to repent, but no one would. So he had Noah and his family made an ark out of wood. Noah warned them all, consequences there would be! And warned them of where they’d be spending eternity! Then, the rains came and poured like never before! The people got scared! They couldn’t take anymore! They cried and shouted, “Noah” “please let us in!” “We didn’t believe you, when you told us of our sin!” The door on the ark was shut! God’s judgment came down! Other than Noah’s family, there was no one else around! America’s days of wickedness will be coming to an end! Very soon, God’s judgment will certainly begin! Will you mock the men of God? Who preach God’s word? Or will you live as if, his truth, you never heard? As in the days of Noah, so shall it be at Christ’ return! Will you join him in heaven? Or stay on this earth to burn?

powerful force

Love is a powerful force that shape, and bend time
Love is rich but doesn't cost a dime 
Love present 
is as unto the sunshine
Love make me spend time
under pine
with my dandelion.
As we rewind
on our  climb
to Love.

Love is like a light bulb
That illuminant with every hug .
When we shine  its because of our love 
Of your touch.
Love is the source of our life.
Its giving from God the creator
who create the heaven and sky.
I love because its giving from heaven  above
 and that reason why.

A new beginning

Tears of sadness tears of joy.

Tears of the father for the 

compassionate flow from

his perfect loving son.


Times of sadness times of joy.

Time for the father to raise up

the son glorified and truly

beautiful.


An end to sadness tremendous joy.

A new beginning from the father to 

many sons, beyond wonderful.

My Name is Imago Dei

Sometimes in Virginia when the scorching madness of xenophobia conspires 
with a fragile, violent countenance, I fall to the darkest, bitter poison.
And in that carnage, a nation learns of impending destruction.
But the sounds of heaven like an unstoppable flood, poor over New Orleans and 
comfort forlorn victims of embedded justice.
I am men, putting women in cages for birds, beautiful yet bound, loved but 
unappreciated.
I am women, forsaking my sisters as they struggle to understand my privilege.
I tell you I am a paradoxical reflection of power and fear, love and vengeance.
And I am unstable.
And when the weight of unpaid wages reaches the precipice of doubt in young 
impressionable prisoners of comparison, husbands shoot their children and run 
to the abyss.
But I tell you there is a sound of redemption in Jill Scott prophecy and Bell Hooks’ 
gentle wisdom.
I tell you there is a sound of heaven that leaves me fearless, come what may.
Today, I went swimming with my daughter with a final exam the next day.
And in that moment, I knew that this crucible, does not rule me, bind me, or 
define me.
Whatever this is, this unstable suffering of paradoxical reflection.
It does not rule me.
For I am an image of a sacrifice so sublime, that the gates of hell, pain, 
conquest, or corporate idolatry cannot stand against it.
And in the end, I know peace forever.

heaven meets earth - in my mind

                
There is a place in my mind, where heaven meets earth
A place in my mind where love gives birth.
A love that’s put into our hearts from GOD above
And earths beauties, like a snow white dove.

Where the two can walk hand in hand
And against evil, they take their stand.
Love and beauty is what is shown
And in our minds, it is known.

Everything in life comes in twos
It is up to us what we use and choose
Heaven and earth, rich and poor,
Evil and good, male and female
This is the things that are real.

And if we use what the LORD provides
We can walk side by side.
It is not difficult to see
That this is the way GOD intended it to be.

The love between a man and a woman
As they walk hand in hand
Laughing, joking, and making plans.

Seeing children playing together.
You tell me ! What can be better.
When an elderly couple can 
still smile at each other
And acknowledge everyone
As their sister and brother.

The mind is truly where heaven meets earth
So let’s enjoy it all, and take it for what its worth.

CHRISTIANS

 I'm Melvin, C.E.O. of T.W.I.S.T.,,,which stands for "The Way I See This"...
Here's some facts if you care to listen,
 they're about people called Bedside Christians.
Do they love the Lord?, sure they say so,
 if you notice to church they don't even go.
Step on their toes if you chance to dare,
 that's one sure way to get them to swear.
Then they will holler Lord forgive me,
 and turn around and kill, thinking God can't see.
                (1 John 3:15)
They praise God for an hour or two,
 and then curse out a person when they're thru.
Don't think that there are some I'm missing,
 next come the Creeping Christians.
They tip in after the doors are closed,
 make a mistake and they quickly turn up they're nose.
They're always on the go, never being still,
 trying to get into Heaven on their own free will.
Backslidden Christians I pray for the most,
 they've lost their trust in the Lord of host.
There are a few more I'll give you now,
 the Spirit will teach you to know how.
That's how to live for the Lord Jesus Christ,
 being a Simple Christian is o' so nice.
Bighead Christians think they know it all,
 sometimes they are truly on the ball.
When it comes to their walk it's another story,
 they forget to give God all the glory.
My friend they are quick to tell U what to do,
 and that God will always see you thru.
Problems come their way they begin to grumble,
 and you see them really start to crumble.
Sidewinder Christians go from this way to that way,
 never believing anything for more than one day.
Every doctrine they try to go by,
 not questioning or even wondering why.
They are Sidewinders because they go 
from side to side,
 they are always on the bandwagon for
 just a free ride.
These are the ones I love tho',
 cause they really don't know.
But let me tell you this my friends,
 noone gets to Heaven by having  loose ends.
                 SEE
We walk by faith and not by sight,
 and not by our own might.
May we be blessed to have spiritual understanding,
 so that we aren't living a life so demanding.
We should live lives that are totally shameless.
I've been all of the above Christians at one time 
or another, but I now know how to love my sister
and my brother...

T.W.I.S.T.

The Invitation

Heaven or hell, which place will it be?
We were given a choice when He hung on sins tree.
Why do you linger brother of mine?
Your life could soon end without any sign. 

From dust you once came and shall return,
Don't chance your soul to forever burn.
The small voice you hear is calling to you,
Don't let this chance pass to start life anew.

Though your body will rest in a cold, dark grave,
 Your soul will live on so don't be Satan's slave.
The Devil will tell you that you've plenty of time,
But God said try the spirits and see which is mine.

While Christians are praying let Him come in,
There's rejoicing in heaven when one's born again.
There's a Heaven to gain and a hell to shun,
You can't get to the Father except through the Son.

Dear Heavenly Father: 

How much more bright is a star

As You cover us

For we only stand in the love 
of your Grace.
Truly; we need You more 
then life itself.
And if we may drink from the purified 
Blood of Jesus Christ. 
Please soul workth the heart 
so that
My words be worthy of earring,
and allow them to rest 
in the ears of the up most Almighty;
And see with the eyes 
of the Doves in Heaven and
not of this world.
We only hope to 
have success in You, 
And live in the passion 
beneath of your wings.
For all we need is You
So if we have ears,
let us hear:
your soft graceful voice.
In order to prepare for 
this rightness battle.
Amen!

The Boatman's Song 17/ Many

The Boatman’s Song                                    17/Many

Such was the beauty of Urveshi*
Who was trying to resemble like the YogMaya*
Who too was no less beautiful than Urveshi*
Charmed by the beauty of his love, standing on the sand 
The boatman sang an enchanted melody
The song was devoted to his love in waiting
It was a song in praise of her astonishing beauty

By listening the boatman’s song, Urveshi felt as if
She had lost her heart now completely
She got overwhelmed by his voice 
And hearing that song, which was touching 
Both her mind and heart’s 
And every nook and corner of her entire self so intensely 

The song took her into an ecstasy of unseen joy
Which was intoxicating her mind, like a strong wine
She even forgot the passing of time,
Till her friend Tarang whispered in her ears
Urveshi wake-up from your intoxication
The boatman is still in deep love with the Princess 
And all his songs are for her and in praise of his love only

Tarang* again reminded Urveshi, still you have a chance   
Avoid going close to him even unknowingly
As then heaven would not be a place for you
And the boatman can not be blamed, for not accepting you  
When he would find that you are not his love 
And you are Urveshi,* trying only to create an illusion  
While resembling his dear love only

Enough evening had passed by that time
Urveshi realized that what Tarang* was trying to say
Was the reality of her one sided love for the boatman

Again an Inner conflict in Urveshi’s mind

Her mind was still arguing and asked
Urveshi* stop the boatman’s beloved to reach him
You can still win the heart of this man
Forget about the ethics of life
Love is blind and it has no bindings
You can still make your own heaven here on earth

Her heart again intervened presuming well
That heart’s voice may not reach and break
The confusions created by her mind
But a miracle happened, caused by Tarang*
Her heart voice this time was heard by the mind
And Urveshi* realized the future of her love
Which would perish and may blow in vain
The moment his love actually arrives

Urveshi immediately decided to tell the truth to the boatman
That she was only his friend and his well wisher
Who has come to hear his songs from heaven 

Ravindra                                                                to continue…

Kanpur India 18th Jan 2010

* Urveshi an Apsara (nymph) 
* Tarang (A nymph) A name. Tarang is a Hindi word means waves both 
    Visible or invisible  
* YogMaya. Name of the beloved of the Boatman.

Remembering Thee

The heaven and earth with all that is found in them.
I am ever so captivates by him
I thee freeborn wonder of thee mountain air
Saw that light of love so crystal clear
His head is purest of gold his hair is wavy
Ever so dark as a raven
His spirit within has beauty of the countryside.
Mixture of passion of pride
His heart is an open door of gold
With every delicacy of both new and old
As the rain and snow come down from heaven
My heart has gone out to him warmth his given.
I the free born wonder of thee mountain air
Has found the one my heart loves so dear
I held him my heart shouldn’t let him go
He’s my spirit of fountain youth to flow.
Without him my eyes over flows with tears
Time has drawn near
I have placed him like a seal over my heart to cherish
As for he has placed a veil over his heart to perish.
In his eyes a fire an eternal blazing flame.
Shinning ever brighter till the full light of day his soul is the same.
Our days are like a fleeting shadow he’s hiding under the flesh.
Experienced in battle made for himself the courage
Remembering thee time we have embraced
Every moment is carried in our souls leaving a blazing trace.
The heaven and earth with all that is found in them
I will always love him.

just you..

i wrote a poem for many to be true.
u make my heart sing and soon ill be a bird with these things,
these things i call wings and they let me be,
the person that you know.
i smile and laugh and know your there and i soar above the trees.
and speak of thee and for you and i both know, 
that one day we will be the couple overthere,
yes the ones with the hair.
the hair of silver and white you see, in love so carelessly.
we will travel with out fear of death.
for heaven we shall seek,
in your arms i see no harms
the air is clean and pure.
i feel your warmth and tingle inside
for i know your always there.
no matter how far
right there you are.
in my heart you'll be 
ill love thee and you'll love me.
till hell and heaven blend and after that
well we both shall laugh Because we will still be.
in the arms of the one we love though heaven around us has failed.
our love has prevailed.
i love you so and want you to know that i seek your smile dearly.
to kiss you so.
i want you to know 
that my thoughts now are clear
and i see the man that no one else can.
from this i know
i love you so
and one day we will be
invinsable u see.
for fear is nonexistent here 
so please just let us be.
let us be in love with out a care.
my dear it now is clear,
the future we have bestowed.
our lives are complete
ours try to compete 
but our love is strong
we have nothing wrong-
in our connection with one another.
others have envy for what we share,
they do not dare
to even think they compare.
for my dear ill tell you hear
just how much i care.
i think you can plainly see from these lines ive wrote
from the heart i start and dig down and smile
for your love is all i need to live
and now i shall conclude
i end this poem for you i wrote
i bid you adieu. 
or my friend i do love you 
so adieu to you my love.

fairy tale

I am a different individual,strange to some amazing to others just weird in 
general. A mystery to some. a open book to others.  A beautiful indifference of 
the two vessels of good and evil infused within the body inside. Finding a way 
to continue  on in this journey. I sit and watch a empire crumble and fall in an 
attempt to reconstruct the burning ruins as the citizens scream to save us 
from this evil dictatorship of mass heart break and loneliness..light of my soul 
opened the darkness shown you the light at the end of the tunnel still u chose 
to remain in the shadows of your own blindness.  Some times love feels like 
pain but why must we suffer in the madness of the surrounding tornadoes of 
your past year and drown in the tsunamis of the present. When we both can 
clearly see were the life vests were wanting to cling to to ride out this storm. 
So i sit once more and hope my writings will turn into reality. Some higher 
power will grand my test of karma over,and let me become a hero in this fairy 
tale life i wish to write. Tis has all the classic signs a fair maiden trapped in her 
surroundings waiting for a new knight in shiny armor. A image i ponder if i ever 
will achieve. The music is playing the dream still remains lost in my head here i 
go once more..hoping to be notched for more than just a friendly face. So i ask 
once more do i stay and fight to slay this beast of jealousy and demise she is 
juggled around in or do i saddle up and ride away. Its clear i am the better 
choice for her healing but why don't i ever win in this battle of the vertical 
horizon anthem.

Who's Gonna Bake the Christmas Pie

He was six years old at his dying mother's side.
Only when she slept he broke down and cried.
He had to hide his fears of what was to be.
How scared he was, mama didn't need to see.

Mama had been sick going on three years now.
She knew she must help him make it through some how.
With her strength fading she called him to her side.
"If life is a carnival son, I'm at my last ride."

"I have something to tell you, to remember for all times."
"You are all each other will have in the coming hard times."
"Just hold each other close and remember my love for you."
"It will help to ease the pain, it will help to see you through."

The day came when his Mama had to go.
He had so many questions, so much he wanted to know.
"Why did Mama have to die?"  "Who's gonna bake the Christmas pie?"
"Who will comfort me when I cry?"  "Are you gonna die?"

I squatted down in front of him a tear in my eye.
"An unfortunate part of life, son, is each of us will die."
He'd caught me off guard, I didn't know what to say.
I hoped he understood.  I hoped... and I prayed.

I took him in my arms and held him oh so tight.
I told him that I loved him and that everything would be all right.
"Mama's in heaven now she's looking down on you and me." 
"She's with us in our hearts where forever she will be."

"She sees you when you're crying she sees you when you're playing."
"She knows what you're thinking she knows what you're saying."
"She sees into your heart and knows how much you love her."
"So let's have happy thoughts of Mama and the time we had together."

The days have turned to weeks, the weeks to months and years.
Our thoughts of Mama are happy, they hold away the fears.
She still fills our hearts with memories.  Memories of her love.
Memories of Mama sent down from heaven above.

My heaven sent angel

I don't think I'll find
no one anymore like you, that
knows how to make me feel the way
you do, that'll treat me the way you 
do. You treat me likeyour queen and can't
say if I'll ever find another like you, my
heaven sent angel. Your love is so pure 
and sweet, I'm so glad you came into my
life my heaven sent angel, I never used
to believe in love because love treated me
wrong but you stepped  in and fixed the
missing pieces of my puzzle that I've
been needing in my life, you became
the man that I've been looking
in all the wrong places for. Really 
you found me not I found you and
you have no idea how it feels after
being knocked down so many time
to be picked up and held by you, to
be comforted and console by you
I'm blessed to have you, my heaven sent angel

A Grown-Ups Prayer

Dear Father, can you spare an Angel to be with me today,
I am not a little child, I’m grown up in many-a-way.
I said I wouldn’t bug you, many years ago,
But my mind is set on that Angel I had wanted so.
I’m not that little child who just wanted to pretend,
I sometimes feel so lonely and need another friend.
Father, I have respect for you and love beyond compare,
But do you have an Angel, that with me you will share.
                       The Answer
My dear grown up child, my answer has to stand,
I will not send an Angel from the promised land.
My good Book I have sent you and music you can sing,
I will not single out just one, and give them everything.
But one thing I can promise, my Angel will visit you,
When your life is over, my Heaven will be in view.
So live your life for Jesus the way you aught to do,
For my Angels up in Heaven are certainly watching you.
                       The Reply
Thank you dear Father, this time I really understand,
I will not have an Angel till I go to the glory land.
I will strive to do what’s right and just be satisfied,
To live for you dear Father and the Lord who was crucified.
I will never plead with you for an Angel anymore,
I know they have to stay around Heaven’s golden door.
Thank you for your patience, you have been tolerant of me,
Father, hold your thought on my Angel, if it pleases Thee.

The Cowslip and the Primrose

How beautiful and pleasant is nature at this very moment it uplifts hearts,
Green is the grass dotted with young flowers in golden rods of sunlight,
The cuckoo has returned from far away and she shouts her gladness once more,
A nightingale pours hymns with love joy from every bough so sweet so lovely.

The cowslip and the primrose bathe in soft dewy meadows they bend in the wind,
The scent of their presence rises to heaven and heaven smiles down upon them,
The country side is a paradise of love youth and beauty it takes breath away,
If a child was permitted to break from parents she would run and jump with joy.

To breathe fresh pure air to revel in the feeling of all the delicious greenness,
Let work stop for a day calm the brain and heart and just lay down in soft clover,
The otter can bask so can the sedge snake and the toad, why can't can man bask too,
Such a day must come for all families or nature will waste its time go elsewhere.

Happy Praises

 

 
Beyond the sky a little
Angel swept 

Down here below to touch
Our hearts today

And

Give little extra love to fill
Those that are heavy
Ladden

To fill our heart with love and
Compassion for our fellow 
man..

But without a doubt 

I'm

Sending you this blessing

Sent from heaven to help this
Old world fill with sin

I love the lord

He heard my prayer

He wrote my song

He sang with beauty and 

Of the innocence of one soul

Your soul will be filled with
So much joy

Your heart so full of God's
Love

It spills and spills over two
Times three

So much love keep spilling
Out

God's lets you know it's time
For you to shine

Enjoy your blessing
Lord bestored on you

Dance for the Lord and praise
His holy name

Because we'll here to celebrate
Another new day

I'm sending my praises unto 
You my Lord

I pray for my family and friend

I also pray for my enemies in tow
For they are plenty

Don't know the reason why

Bless them oh father and let them

Shine

For they know not of what they do

When this time is done upon this
Land

Open our eyes upon the beauty of
Heaven sun

For I know the heaven rain will wash

Away the dirt and grime

That cover our bodies and souls of
These worldly sins

Let your heaven rain

Rain down on your children Lord

And

Make our hearts as pure as snow..

Loss Of a Life Time

You walked me through my life from each step that I took from each fall that I 
didnt land and each word that i spoke. 
We were closer than ever and went out for some clean fun but little did we know 
tradegy had just begun. 
A driver as drunk as heaven forbidd slammed into our car and we started to spin. 
We landed in an intersession and i started to pray the car wouldnt budge and my 
spirt gentally started drifting away. 
My brother was uncouncious and the cars were coming fast 
and i was scared to we would not last. 
But sadly now in the hospital wing my brothers nearly dead, 
I am fine but I cant let him go so i went to let him know.
I nelt beside him and stared to cry, pleaing to him you cannot die, 
kissing his hand witch was now drentched in my tears, 
I quickly got because there was a tradgic sound going into my ears. 
I stared to scream, yell, and shout 
til the doctors excorted me out. 
I dont how i can go on in life without him right by my side. 
You see its the stupid people in life that cause so much pain for everyone else, 
so please for me and this inecent poeple world be a smart person and 
dont drink and drive because you could save a life. 
Hundreds of people die each day from drunk driving and dont have a say so just 
remember what i said, 
because you wouldnt want to be the one dead. I love my brother so much but i 
honestally believe that he is in heaven watching over me.

Most men reiterate the infirmities of flesh the scars so proud to show so scary 
but so worthwhile like Tom Sawyers Toe. The boys eye meet on the street hold 
up they shirts and say look so neat the knife came all the way across and then 
they brag so braggart the facts and get another illegal drink for most of them use 
the alley they are too young to sit the bar stool anyway. The seldom used door 
long locked against the thief they lean upon each other's arm in misery for one 
so young to fall prey to john barely corn. 
The eye used to drink it down convinced it was the best thing in town and let me 
tell you all it was hard to put it down but the punch line of my story is the sobriety. 
Jesus saves in different ways each person is not the same. He never changes 
but the person changes to fit the mold of HIS direction. The soups cold and the 
meat is not too hot and the butter never melts but eye am so happy not to drink. 
The wet rain falls upon my brow and makes me frown but somehow the son 
always shines for me as well and love is just around. 
The edges of my mind are filled with happiness her name is love she is ewe my 
loneliness is gone my loveliness has come. 
Rules for English words stop me from making rhymes and so the words come 
out so strang and yet she thinks she loves she moves the mountains between 
us and GOD is in my heart and love is also there from her to make me live just 
until it is time to die and leave her to carry on in Heaven to build a place to stay a 
picnic ready to be eaten in the grass of Heaven just inside the doorway. 
There were many people stories in my bible to read there was a Nazarene who 
never cut his hair it is said they never drink wine? 
He is drinking wine in Heaven with his JESUS now.

Tears From Heaven prt 2 The Never Ending Kiss

Light shining gently 
above stars
time passes by
 passing through galaxies
rivers that shine go on forever 
seated on planet mars
eternally mine the star that glows
upon your face 
touch you with a kiss
in time we embrace
i see you smile 
light up the skies above me
hold me for a while 
then fall deep into your eyes
lost in the moment 
im mesmorized 
Gently take you away
 as the night falls a new day 
In your eyes im lost in your spell
embrace you with a smile
then kiss you goodnight 
i wish you well
Close my eyes 
and dream
on heaven i wait 
to kiss once  more
becomes our fate 
the monnlight beams 
rivers run free
time passing by
as tears drown into 
the depths of the sea
witihn my arms you kiss me
tears from heaven fall
a million of stars go  on for Eternity 
my Starcrossed lover
i hold on to you forever more...

If I Had Known

If I had only known that on that very day
The Lord was going to come and take my baby away,
I would have stayed by his side both day and night
I would have never let him get too far out of my sight.

I would have told him that he was my rock, my joy,  & my friend
I would have reminded him how truly blessed this union has been.
Our two beautiful children whom he loved so much,
Our wonderful marriage that he graced with his touch.

But I didn’t know, for no one knows the day or the hour
When the Lord will come down to pick his next flower.
Thank God he was ready, for he lived his life right,
His soul made a bouquet, good and pleasing in God’s sight.

I will truly miss him, but it is comforting to know
He will reap in Heaven the seeds sown below.
The seeds of kindness, joy, compassion and love
Yielded an eternity with God in Heaven above.

So rest now sweetheart, for you have won your race,
And now you can live forever enfolded in God’s grace.
I truly love and miss you, this I can’t deny
But we will meet again in our Heavenly home on High.

Wondering

WONDERING

There are times I look at my life, its struggles and its trials,
And all the ways I failed the Lord along the many miles.
I wonder how the Lord above could still look down and say,
“I still love you, I sent My Son to die for you one day.”
When life for me is over here and I face the Judgment Throne,
I wonder how the Lord could say, “I welcome you now home.
You’re here to stay forever, child, I’ll never cast you out.
I don’t remember sin you did or all the times of doubt.
You see, My blood had covered all the day you trusted Me;
I bore it all that day below upon Mount Calvary.”
So, though I spend time wondering how the Savior could love me,
And though I think so many times and with that logic see
No way that I, a sinful wretch, who knew the right from wrong
Could stray in sin for all those years and wander for so long,
And still be loved, forgiven, too, for sins I did commit,
And hear the Lord then say to me, "I don't remember it!"
I realize God knew it, too, so long ere I was born,
Yet still He chose to bare it all upon the cross that morn.
I may walk down the streets of gold and wonder just a bit
How God could make a place like this and take me there to it,
And I may with my wondering eyes behold that land so fair
And wonder what I ever did deserving to go there.
But quickly will the answer come as I live there above,
The wondering I had on earth was answered by His love!

A Prayer for My Grandson

Will this pain that’s in my heart, Lord will it ever end?
Lord I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed, now I’m lost and need a friend.

The trials and the tribulations I’ve had more than my share,
I need your gentle love, please show me that you care.

It used to be all about me Sir, I didn’t think I needed anyone,
Till you placed in my care Lord, my only grandson.

The problems the lad has Lord, he needs your healing touch,
We’ve taken him to doctor after doctor, Lord I love this child so much.

Lord reach down from mighty Heaven and cleanse him through and through,
You are the Creator, Lord you know just what to do.

Let the voices that he hears Lord, let them be angels sent by you,
Guide him to the path, show him a life all anew.

Cradle all his anger ease his little tormented soul,
Free him from this problem, Father I want Heaven to be his goal.

Father this is my prayer and I’m sincere as I can be,
And I ask all that read this please pray along with me.

Pray for my little Johnny, please pray with all your heart,
Just ask God to please heal him, just give him a brand new start.
                                                God Bless, Ron

At a wishing well

At a wishing well

Comes a brand new morning
From a full blue moon
And the birds are out singing
And the flowers in bloom

I hear the children laughter
As they play so joyfully
With So much happiness 
But there is none for me

But it’s my own fault
I fell in love with an angel
I try to reach her in heaven 
But found my own hell

Yes I try to reach for the heaven 
But fell into hell 


I see the rainbow
Shines across the sea
It brings joy to others 
But none for me

They say when the sun shines 
It shines for all to see
But in my darken life 
It never shines on me

But it’s my own fault
I fell in love with an angel
And she left me standing
At a wishing well

Yes she left me standing 
At a wishing well

I guess I must move along now
And see what the future brings
They say it’s not over
Till the fat lady sings

And as I journey
Through this lonely world
I will always carry my love
For a Moroccan girl
Yes I will always carry my love
For a Moroccan girl

My Heaven

I look deep in your eyes.
I see there what I feel inside.
We share something between us,
Neither one of us can hide.
I feel your lips touch mine,
I loose all my control,
All it took was a look and a kiss,
To know you were part of my soul.

I see your hands on my skin,
I want and need you to do more,
The passionate look you give me,
Tells me heaven is in store.
I feel your need against my thigh,
I know you will fulfill every wish,.
We were made to fit together,
And all it took was a look and a kiss.
I look deep in your eyes,
And I see heaven there inside,
You make me feel so beautiful,
What I feel for you I cannot hide

In Loving Memory

As I lay back in the tall grass
An uncontrollable emotion tears deeply into my heart;
I attempt to understand, "Why?"
Why has God taken one so precious?

Just then, a soft pile of radiant autumn leaves
Forms a plush pillow, and my senses sharpen.
The warm sunshine and a soft gentle breeze
Lovingly touch all that we call life.

Birds in their melodious splendor,
Fly close , and deliver special messages.
Colorful flowers wave gallantly in the wind,
Each having a unique life of its own.

The sound of crystal clear waters 
Carrying crisp and vibrant fallen leaves,
To a distant and Heavenly destination,
Bring fond memories of those we will love forever.

Suddenly, in the midst of floating clouds far above,
Images of those held so dear touch my heart.
And they appear in fond  memories-both comforting and touching.
Only now can I begin to understand, "Why?"

All of these precious souls who we feel we have lost
Are lovingly watching over us from Heaven above,
Helping God create a Heaven on earth,
Enhancing and spreading beauty with everlasting love in their hearts.

Trip to the Heaven Hotel

Hello, there
How you doing?
Good, I hope
Now, I am going to tell you of the tale
About the woman who set sail for the Heaven Hotel

Now, this lady was no ordinary lady
Why, you could even say she had a touch that was heavenly
This lady would have to be my good old Granny 
Now everyone loved my Granny,
But some things loved her in way 
That makes you want to stay away
For you see, She had a terrible cancer who wouldn’t leave her be.

As hard as she fought,
The mean old cancer would not leave her be
Now, She fought long and hardly,
But that dang old cancer won eventually
She passed away, in a very sad way

On top of the big sea, she sailed tenaciously,
Some say she sailed like a pirate at open sea
Until she finally got to the place when Heaven be
And surely as can be, next to J and G was waiting my uncle Billy
Just waiting to see that she make it into Heaven safely

She mounted with him on a horse that was so heavenly,
As rare and fair as you would ever see
Helping her arrive just in the nick of time
So she could say, Mother I have arrived at the Heaven Hotel

Taken by your smile 
Held by the night
In your arms i gaze for a while
and hold you in my sight
there amongst stars 
one that shines bright
Chasing clouds among the rain
tears from heaven 
release my pain
i follow your heart
to the ends of the world
chase your dreams
 just to be your girl

Come to me with you tears
and i wil cry for you
a thousand stars will fall
thats true
 everywhere you will go
i will follow 
show me your dreams
and ill keep them safe
hold them in my heart thats true
here i hold a place just for you.

Tears from heaven 
fall then i miss you 
All i want is to hold you
and kiss you
Stop my tears from falling
when your smiling
catch my dreams in your pocket
and keep them from fading
My tears subsiding

Come away with me
tonight,
together through dark skies
chase the stormy weather
we'll fly 
hold on till the dawn 
Watch The burning fire rise
in the early morn.

Tears from heaven whisper
Angels sing among the clouds
Tell me a story of you 
Catch my soul in a moment 
Time stands still
Stars break free from the broken sky
at night 
Angels hear me cry
Lift me to your light
Whisper to me your everlasting dreams
and i'll send them on  angel wings.

some times

some times heaven sends down there angels
to bring help love or gifts
some times we see them some we dont 
some say it is only in books of myths
some times heaven its self comes down
when a grate need is found
when love dies cries or tells only lies
heaven its self comes down from thee skies
in this time of some or this some times of an end
heavenly angels together will mend us 
defend us win us this dark age battle
that evil has changed and placed our souls
behind temptations of food drug and sex 
nicest ugliest thing alive yet the truth is 
there not alive at all and they dont easiest in
our fathers eyes and evil made us all forget
that what matters most of all thee ultimate high
is knowing theres another you and that is
your soul inside now heavens dream begins with me

Spindles and Seas

Spindle spindle
spin for me
bring yesterday back
and my love from the sea

Stars shining, stars bright
bring me back her lovely sight
dried from seafoam, alive and well
bring her back from her watery hell

O' winds, howling winds!
Spare me my loveless night
Speed her soul through fire and cloud
fill her eyes with life, love, and light

Vain, pitiful, woeful spirits nigh!
tuck back your jealous greed
forget her love for you, toss it aside
give back to me my one and only need

Turbulent waters, sleep and do part
sleep an endless dream
give back my love for her unbeating heart
before the jealous moon sheds its hateful gleam

I beseech thee, o' callous gods
cast down your fires and your lightning rods
beat the shore with rageful fist
but in the end give to me my dying wish

To see her again, o' wondrous sight
a seraphim so pale, so blissful so sweet
I pray ye gods, bring her on wings swift, wings fleet
let us have our love for one last night

I would give my heart, my wretched soul
all to see her again, this solitary goal
an angel in Heaven now, a woman no more
alone I'm left to speak of her in poem and lore

Not a devil in heaven nor a ghost in hell
could ever turn her free
to look into her eyes is madness divine
and alone I'm left by the sea

My tears turn dry and turn to salt
my heart has died, my future rought
how wronged was I, played for the fool
I was only a pawn, a piece, a tool

Her name is His now, belonging to God
while she turns away and he grins and nods
away into the heavens out of sight and mind
only a vagary of memory left for me behind

Wings fallen, halo shattered
her life crudely splattered
my life, our life, torn asunder
she is dead, was it ever any wonder

O'  gods of merciful death
why not me instead cold without a breath
why not me i plea, why not me!
why not me alone at the bottom of the sea!

Hear me now, o' begotten fiends
this is not how it should end
me alone and forgotten
alone without my lifelong friend

O' how my rage will bubble and boil
the seas will burn and torch this soil
my wrath will topple even the sky
Heaven will burn and angels cry

My love will come back to me then
when love becomes infernal sin
when this Man raises fist
he'll take back his love he has sorely missed

And o' will the seas bleed red
with love so scorned and love still dead
No devil nor god could stay this hand
until this sea leaves this shoreline sand

Imagine That Vol.2

Story of my life... you know it's kinda
funny when I think about cuz
when it comes to love I could never
get it right but I can give all the good advice
to my homeboys & help them keep their
lil shawty's and turn em into the wifey type
but like Beans said "Tell Me What Your Life Like"
pain & turmoil but God made the child that
stands before you outta his image 
so I been heaven sent to deliverance his
messages never mind my seductive
sentences.

But listen things ain't what it used to be,
you see it's this female I been talking 
to for a minute and somethings different 
I can feel it in how we talk and the way 
she looks at me, kinda got me daydreamin
right now, I mean it's just good friendship
but eternal happiness wit her is
sumthin I'm trying to seek, 
she got me feeling like M.L.K in his 
Infamous "I Have A Dream Speech"
meaning she takes me to a place 
God took John, revealing to him 
because of the sinful nature of 
this nation a New Heaven & Earth 
would be born.

So you see I see new things wit this one,
got me visioning a new love life, where
even if I'm away from her for a few minutes 
I think of her smile and she's what
I'm missing, so for her to be mines & me 
to be hers it would almost feel unreal 
but I'm love it, cuz when she gives her
heart to me the last thing imma feel is 
emotionally torn like Letoya Luckett

Tears From Heaven


Taken by your smile 
Held by the night
In your arms i gaze for a while
and hold you in my sight
there amongst stars 
one that shines bright
Chasing clouds among the rain
tears from heaven 
release your pain
i follow your heart
to the ends of the world
chase your dreams
 just to be your girl

Come to me with you tears
and i wil cry for you
a thousand stars will fall
thats true
 everywhere you will go
i will follow 
show me your dreams
and ill keep them safe
hold them in my heart
thats true
here i hold a place just for you

Tears from heaven 
fall then i miss you 
All i want is to hold you
and kiss you
Stop my tears from falling
when your smiling
catch my dreams in your pocket
and keep them from fading
My tears subsiding

Come away with me
tonight,
together through dark skies
chase the stormy weather
we'll fly 
hold on till the dawn 
Watch The burning fire rise
in the early morn.

Tears from heaven whisper
Angels sing among the clouds
Tell me a story of you 
Catch my soul in a moment 
Time stands still
Stars break free from the broken sky
at night 
Angels hear me cry
Lift me to your light
Whisper to me your everlasting dreams
and i'll send them on  angel wings.

All i see

When he was fifty-eight we had some fun,
But ten years later he died so young.
And I stare at the stars and wonder why,
God took the best person in my life.
But up there in Heaven he’s watching me,
And I know this because when I look up he’s all I see.
We went fishing back in eighty-nine,
And I caught a fish onto my line.
He looked down at me and then he said,
“Good job,” and “I love you kid.”
And I stare at the stars and wonder why,
God took the best person in my life.
But up there in Heaven he’s watching me,
And I know this because when I look up he’s all I see.
Well I ate my supper and it was my bedtime,
‘Cause when you’re five who needs a nursery rhyme.
He’d tell me a story every night,
About what he did in his short life.
And I stare at the stars and wonder why,
God took the best person in my life.
But up there in Heaven he’s watching me,
And I know this because when I look up he’s all I see.
Well it was time for him to go as we could see,
As he lied in his bed suffering,
And I thank God for relieving his pain,
I only wish there was another way.

My Heaven

Are you dreaming?
Or is this my dream
Are you this perfect
Like a silver light's gleam
The feeling is rising
Can you feel it rise too
Have you felt it before
Or is this something new
When I see you
Despair slips away
It because of you 
I live for each day
In those eyes 
I find a heavenly grace
And I can't help 
But love that beautiful face
And a slight touch of your hand
Is a angel's embrace
It seems when I am with you
My soul dances in a far off place
This is how I feel
And I hope you can feel it too
Because heaven isn't in the clouds
My heaven is in you

To the family that I left behind.

My family I know you miss me 
But I am alright.

Since I will always be their 
And be by your side. 

To my little daughter Regan 
Words cannot say. 

How much I miss you
But I will be home some day. 

I know you miss me 
But please do not cry. 

The lord says we will be together 
And I know he is right.

Crystal I miss you 
And my love will be the same. 

I am in heaven 
Where we will be a family again one day. 

Mom and Dad I miss you 
 Please do not worry. 

I am in heaven, 
Which is filled with nothing but glory.

Thank you for being there 
With me in the night. 


For the times I laughed 
And even the times I cried.

I am glad you are my parents 
And I am glad that will never change. 

I can’t wait to see you 
So you can see how I have changed.

But I will always be the baby boy
  That you will remember till this day.

My brother and sister I thank 
For showing me the way. 


Thanks to you I grew up a great man
 That will be able help people each and every day.

I will never forget any of you 
Just remember that every day.

To all of the students 
That I left behind. 

There is a place for you in my heart 
And you will always me on my mind. 

I will be coaching all of you again one day 
And all the coaches will be the same.

I will always love you 
Since you were what helped me each and ever day.

To all the coaches 
Thank for taking me fishing. 

And staying out all night long
When all of you would stand by my side. 

I will never forget 
What we would talk about.

Since it was about football
  All night all-long. 

I am glad I got to know all of you
 In each and every way.

And thank you for letting me join the family 
That I still love today.

I will never forget how you accepted me 
And remember god loves you day. 

Thank you also for getting a new coach 
So he can help all the kids in all ways.

I hate that I left that tragic day 
But I am here to say. 

All of you will be in heaven 
With me that one fate full day.

Hid Benaeth the Cottonwood

Hid beneath the Cottonwood,
My deepest sympathies withstood,
Hearts desires, a world unknown,
Whispers in the horizon intone.

Wind surpasses the enchanting song,
Life beyond all can lone belong,
Inspiration in color of shade,
As the suns’ arms stray arrayed.

Stone and steeple, every deed,
Faith alone, the sound soul is freed,
Steps through along my time,
Golden Staircase I praise to climb.

Judgment Day I embrace,
His decision, His worthy grace,
My choice, His say,
My life forever in His hands today.


“I am unworthy,” I said.
“I love those who love me,” and let this be read. – Proverbs 8:17
Receive my word, tell those who defy,
Under this Emerald, shed a tear, I cry.

Tears of joy My God,
Angels in heaven choir abroad,
Rejoice! Rejoice! In my name I say, - Romans 12:15
My life forever in His hands today.

The tree, from sin, it shall shade,
Comfort in Heaven again I may.
His name, His son, there  they stood,
Waiting for me hidden beneath the Cottonwood.

Twila my friend

A very special Downs Syndrome girl,
raised by Godly parents out of this world,
Who were filled with love, patience and grace,
Dad preached GODS word, and 
helped others their sins to face.
Twila loved children and helped for years,
in our church nursery, childrens noses to 
wipe and tears to clear.
She had no fear of changing diapers,
and loving them dear, as she seemed
like one of them there.
She had no fear to get on the floor,
and play with them there.
Always looking for her special boy friend,
whom she could love to the end.
She was my special friend.
GOD took her home to heaven above,
where she will see and feel all GODS
wonderful love, until I see her again,
in eternal peace and love, someday
in heaven above.

Angles in heaven

Angles in heaven , stars in the sky
with out you here all we can do is try.
Try to keep our lives together, keep our love so strong
be there to help eachother no matter what goes wrong.
We lost you so sudden, it all happened so fast.
often wondering why good things never last.
Whatever happens you will remain in our hearts.
doing what we can so that we don't fall apart
Angles in heaven, stars in the sky,
time to spread your wings and fly.
Go now and rest in a better place.
It is going to be hard not seeing your face.
Loved by so many, and cared for by all,
while everyone wondered how it was that you stood so tall.
We are at a loss for words, we don't know what to say.
it is like our blue skies have turned to gray.
But, no matter what you are forever in our hearts.
because of you - we won't fall apart
because of you - we will stand strong
because you have held us together for so long.
Staying strong for the ones who need it the best,
and remembering your smile to help us with the rest.
Angles in heaven , stars in the sky
time to spread your wings and fly.

PROMISES IN LOVE

Oh my sweet !
i promise you my love,
my heart, my life.

I will be with you,
until the world to end,
and the lakes to dry!

The beauty of your face,
makes me mad,
day and night.

The glorious eyes you have,
that makes me fat,
greed and big.

They will bury my self,
when you die,
the sweet of my heart,
my love, my hope.

I promise you my love,
the queen of my heart,
my rib, my joy.

I can't let  you down,
the Heaven of my heart,
my dreams, my gift.

The origin of my love,
it's your good smile,
your voice, your heart.

I promise you my joy,
my angel, my queen,
the princes of my love.

I promise you the world,
the Heaven and the sky!
The sun and the moon,
belongs to your heart,
my sweet, my mum. 

I will buy for you a plot,
up in the sky!
and really a good car,
round like  a moon,
and light like the stars!

I travelled the whole world,
but none can step where you're,
the  sweet of my love,
my gift, my love.
I love you mum.

Whispers of Love

When a child is born God is there 
A miracle only He can perfect 
And as He watches from Heaven on high 
He sends angels to keep and protect 

When a mother prays for a child who's lost 
He understands her tears 
He knows her heart is filled with pain 
As He comforts and calms her fears 

He shows us His Love in many ways 
The way that only He can 
And when we're tired and weary 
He offers to hold our hand 

Sometimes His Love is hard to see 
But just look to Heaven above 
For when we think we're all alone 
He sends us His Whispers of Love

The Price He Paid

When Jesus came down to earth 
He came to save us all 
And He died upon the cross for you and me 
Jesus became a man to redeem us all from the fall 

There is no greater love than His 
And let's not forget for a moment this 
He paid the greatest price for our sins 
And now thru Jesus to heaven we can make it in 

God is so full of compassion for us indeed 
He forgives all our transgressions and evil deeds 
There's nothing He can not do for you 
And He has a plan prepared for you and me 

God's love for us is never measured. 
It is never based on goodness or what you do 
Thru mistakes we make He express us His kindness 
And all the time He shows us His love so true 

One day He will take us with Him 
Back home to Heaven that place above 
And there with God will live forever more 
Where there are no more tears nor pain-but only love.

Jack Ledbetter's Legacy

Many families start out poor, and for some
in life all they want is more and more.
Jack could not read very well, but had
a wife, Nadine, who could, and was
wonderful her place to fill.
She read the Bible, Jack preached GODS word.
They were rich in  GODS love, and read his word,
and listened for instructions from above.
Jack preached for years about GODS love.
Eight children GOD blessed them with,
now three sons who preach GODS word,
and 2 daughters married to ministers.
Several  grandchildren in heaven above.
All eight at one time sang, until all glory and heaven rang.
Twila and Jack to heaven went, and the others are
blest and try daily GODS word to send.
Nadine is 90 and full of GODS love and grace,
no one can ever take her place.
The boys travel and preach  GODS word.
and songs so wonderful you can feel  GODS
love, grace and mercy to be heard.
Grandchildren worship GOD and sing,
and constantly try others to him bring.
What a wonderful family legacy this little
Arkansas Preacher did to this world bring.

Heaven Can Wait

Heaven can wait as I long for you this starlit magical night.
A sinner I wilt be but am brave enough to face morning’s light. 
For a taste of your honey lips I would face damnation and hell fires.
Cast aside inhibitions, take me full in your arms and fulfill my desires.
Hold me ever tighter and show me heaven here upon this earth.
Close those pearly gates to me, this moment has much greater worth.
Stroke my hair; caress my skin, together our hearts racing, 
Forbidden pleasures of the flesh we explore, excitement chasing.
Holy water is good for the spirit, soul cleansing, and refreshingly wet.
Nothing can compare to the indulgence and exaltation of lovers’ sweat.
The golden streets and angel choruses have never been proven reality.
There is nothing so pleasureful and stark true than human sexuality.
Threatening words of old cannot stop us, ink stains in a book of antiquity.
The might of the bible surpasses not love, fall ye fast against, upon me. 
Bring your masculine strength here within; rock us away into the abyss. 
Yes I am sure heaven can wait as we seal this tender act with a kiss.
For all the tribulations life brings to me I deserve this pleasure.
Heaven will wait for me never dissolving, as this fleeting moment I treasure.

The Picnic

Loving couple hot summer's day
Head back home one Saturday
 
He pours cool drinks
She showers warm
They both head
To their loving dorm
 
They sip their drinks
Sitting on their bed
He slides her robe
As he kisses her head
 
Over her shoulder
Warm flesh revealed
This couples love
Will soon be sealed
 
They slide of the bed
Lays her on the floor
On her front
My love i adore
 
Her back massaged
Her cheeks kissed
Not one area
Has been missed
 
Arched and ready
He moves real close
His Mr of Men
His loving post
 
Picnic box, opens lid
Vanilla ice cream
On her back its slid
She arches up 
As it slides down her spine
To the curve in her cheeks
To her end sublime
 
Her groans and cries
As he absorbs the cream
Her heaven moist
Eyes closed she dreams
 
Her body flavoured
For the Mr of Men
He takes his woman
In their lovers den
 
Penetration deep
Her body sighs
Sexual eruption
Loving cries
Her walls adorned
With loving spores
This loving couple
On their den floor
 
Juices flowing
Their recipe
The start of life
Salinity
 
On her back
Her legs a Vee
He ventures down
Bows on his knees
 
A pool of life
From sexual pleasure
He scoops to share
With his loving treasure
 
He slowly makes his way to her
Past her scented heaven fur
Torso reached
Breasts passed
He's finally reached his lass
 
With love filled eyes
Their lips meet
They share their prize
From their loving feat

To G O D Be the GLORY

As I walked through the ‘PEARLY GATES” and saw :LENORE on the far shore
Waving exuberantly, running atop the Aqua Blue, tranquil “ Ocean of Heaven “
Running toward me:  long Auburn hair flowing : Jade green eyes, Sparkling
My HEART leaps as I too run atop the Aqua Blue, tranquil  “ Ocean of Heaven “
Our arms wide open, gliding towards Togetherness, a Oneness with G O D

No Way in Heaven

These are the things I never told you
These are the things that I want you to know
These are the arms that'll always hold you
No way in Heaven I'm letting you go

This is the smile that'll always blind me
This is the face that I see when I sleep
These are the words that'll always remind me
This is the promise that God makes me keep

I knew it the first time you whispered my name
All that I needed was there in your heart
You kissed me and nothing was ever the same
and nothing in Heaven can keep us apart

This is the day that I always prayed for
This is the morning my wishes come true
This is the moment my heart was made for
Nothing in Heaven's as lovely as you

The Nails

THE NAILS 
The nails went in and so did the sword.
Jesus’ precious blood was spilled for and me.
Jesus died for all of our sin.
So we may see heaven if we just believe.
How lucky we are to have someone love us like that day on the cross. If we just have faith, we can see heaven and the place that he went to prepare for us.
His love that day brought us peace, love, and so much more.
Even when we fall, His mighty hand is there, ready to catch us. However, are you ready to pick up your cross and follow Him? I hope you are; but if not just remember the nails and His love, Take the walk of faith before it gets to late

Moody and Dism

  I felt a tear fall from the sky, 
I think I felt heaven cry.
  It was a day like today, when I heard you went away.
  It was early when I heard the phone ring, 
I think I heard heaven sing.
  I felt so empty and so sad,
I think I felt heaven mad.
  Then I heard you were put to rest,
with the angels in heaven you'll be best.
  One day I know we'll cross paths, 
That's when I'll hear heavens laugh.
  Together again me and you,
Best friends for eternity in the sky so blue!

Oatmeal

 I look to heaven no vision appears
I see no pearly gates, no golden stairs.
Close my eyes a deep breath pulls back the past,
So that I can tell you how heaven smells.

Heaven's kitchen my mother is cooking
(With love and care) cooking her sweet oatmeal.
I've tried many a bowl since she been gone,
So that if the truth be for me to tell,

Their's tasted poor not like my mother made.
Those oats she cooked no longer do they sell.
I remember the love cooked in her mush.
How warm and loved her sweet oats made me feel.

A cold north wind could bite at my thin skin
Definitely she threw in face of cold,
A bowl of oatmeal and warm winter coat.
Twirl scarves around my neck, gave me a pat-

A pat on bottom and a kiss on top
"Careful -I love you" then to school I'd trot.
She would pull down my cap over my ears,
Run her slender fingers in my trim hair.

I miss it -how? I was standing right there,
My mother's sweet love, my sweet mother's care.
How sharp the memories how deep they cut,
Neither shelved by time, distance nor touch.

I did not suspect. How I could not know?
There was much more than oats in her sweet bowls.
For the warmth I felt came from deep within.
A mother's warm love could insulate more

Than cold, cold wind. Someday my time will come
For me there will be no burden or fear.
At her table I will sit with the Angels
We will feast on my mother's sweet oatmeal.

Heaven Now

To win your love I would lose my soul
Eternity in hell I would gladly allow
All I am for your love I have sold
To keep you in my arms in my Heaven now

What good is forever if you never love me
For now I am flesh and is flesh I dwell
I need your love to give and receive
Or this life would become my earthly hell

If in paradise forever I would exist without you
Than I damn my soul for your love I bow
What good is heaven if I'm alone, sad and blue
I will give all to be with you in our Heaven now

Part 1 of 9/11

He woke up to take a shower
She must have already gone to work at the towers.
He heard their son Jake playing in the background.
He was making breakfast when he heard the sound.
He walked outside to hear people screaming and
Running around.
Not sure what to think
He went to the phone when a bad feeling continued to sink.
He saw the light on the answering machine flash so he pushed play
Only to here screaming, crying, and her say
“Some things wrong
And the line to get out seems so long.
I don’t have much time to say what I want to say.
If you ever fall in love again don’t let her get away.
Cherish your moments with Jake each and every day.
Tell Jake to stand tall and never lie.
Tell him all the time he was the apple of my eye.
I know he can’t under stand at age seven
But someday I will see you both in heaven 
And what ever you do 
Remember I will always love you!
If for some reason I can’t make it back to you.”
He dropped his orange juice on the floor.
Jake stood by the door.
He looked at all the pictures on the wall.
All the memories they made scattered down the hall.
The vacation in Mexico where they fell in love.
Their honeymoon Hawaii when they couldn’t get enough.
The day their son was born
Pictures of his last birthday and the sundress she wore,
Then he heard her vice again and the tears began to pour.
“Some things wrong
And the line to get out seems so long.
I don’t have much time to say what I want to say.
If you ever fall in love again don’t let her get away.
Cherish your moments with Jake each and every day.
Tell Jake to stand tall and never lie.
Tell him all the time he was the apple of my eye.
I know he can’t under stand at age seven
But someday I will see you both in heaven 
And what ever you do 
Remember I will always love you
If for some reason I can’t make it back to you.”

My Old Grandpa

 

As  I sit here in the silence, thinking of my old long departed paw.
   I could almost see his face, with his old slouchy hat made entirely out of straw.
To me he was my hero the greatest of all.
   He was always there to catch me and soften my fall.
He was as simple as could be, it didn’t take much to get a smile.
   I wished I could see him again if only for awhile.
Maybe one day in heaven we can reminiscence once again.
   But until that day comes, all I can do is just sit here and remember how good it 
was back then.
At times, I feel his presence, I can almost hear him talking to me.
   It’s just that I miss him, he was so precious don’t you see.
I just thank God for letting me remember my grandpa so well.
   And allowing me to express myself about the man that’s in this tale.
Well paw I know you still watch over me but it’s from heaven above.
   I thank you for your kindness and your sharing of your love.
                      I Love You Paw, Ronald

LEADING ANGEL

 

Life was going fine until that night
When I first saw you in my sight
Of the darkness in my light you gave me light
Never knew if it was wrong or right 


Like you fell from heaven into my heart
In frame of pictures that never last
You never knew how I felt
To see you with other guys
You never knew how my heart melts 


But 

Through all my pains and sorrow

Down from the heaven came an angel
To lead me through the brighter side of my life
She taught me about the sorrow and the pains
She taught me about the pain for some gains 


She promised to be with me always
Form good to bad days
To always be there to show me the ways
To lead me into what I’ve ever dreamed
Life was never as it seemed 


Seems like we have connection with in
To lead each other to what has never been seen
But still I have a doubt that
If we can make it

Or

Sooner or later we have to break it 
All the sorrow I had before will be nothing for
If and only if I have to lose her

I MUST SAY GOODBYE

It's time for me to leave my dear, 
So I must say goodbye. 
As I turn my face this day, 
Promise me you will be ok. 

If you cry, my heart will break; 
I know leaving you is no mistake 

I must go now, but be forewarned 
Our paths will cross again 
but this time in heaven my friend 

I have to walk away from you, 
So I'll say goodbye. 
As I turn my face away, 
Promise me you won't cry 

This day heaven is awaiting for me 
you see, i tried to take care of you 
but God had more for me to do 

He has called me home 
and I can be reached on his Holy Throne 
So don't think you will ever be alone 
You must be strong and continue to go on

my heaven in the sand

i found my heaven in the sand with you
peaceful waves lapping on the beach
your hand and your heart within my reach
sun on my face, breeze in my hair, 
your head in my lap, resting there
skies so blue, hearts so true
friends and more we've opened doors
we found the chance for true romance
i found my heaven in the sand with you
i think that you have found yours too
don't be afraid to follow your heart
everyone has troubles but you have to start
to let yourself feel something so real
in the sand with you i felt alive and free
part of you is what i want to be
let go of your fears, call me and i'll be right there
holding on to my heaven i found in you

Theres a heaven in me no man can see

theres a heaven in me no man can see
god gave it to me along with grace and glory
he came into my life and made everything right
when no one else seen my shining lights
unconditional love is what he gave, 
he captured me when i needed to be saved
no mans love can compare to the love we share
he was there when no one else was there
families passing to the other side
when death comes close theres nowhere to hide
i've been down for a long time now
he gave me life, which is something more
than anyone in this world can account for 
no words can express the kindness of one god
who goes againts all odds
and this is why i came to believe
theres a heaven in me no man can see

Which way to Heaven?

If a thousand lies would keep your love
I would tell you just one truth
Even if you leave you'll never be gone
Inside my heart I'll only love you

If by my side there is someone new
She will never replace my love for you
I'll try to fill my empty heart again
But it can never be like us then

If I lived a life with promise and fulfilled
I would live  a lie my soul you killed
Which way to Heaven if not through your arms
Which way to Heaven if not through your arms

May I Go To Heaven To Get Inn

 May I Go To Heaven To Get Inn 
The first shall be last and the last shall be first. 
There has to be a last man in line. 
Old soldiers never fade away they die. 
And always on the battlefield they cry,"Away With Him". 
Take him to Golgotha , and email him to the CROSS. 
Find a way to Heaven that will add them to the loss 
of all they riches. 
I like fishes , kisses aer mye riches, 
I love flowers after dark, 
and painful memories , pulling at my heart. 
I like newly formed love , coming down to me 
from a woman made of love. 
I will be the last man Inn. 
Peace is what I`m after , Will I be too wealthy to get in? 
I will have the whole world and I may have the whole world, 
I may have the whole world but I may not keep the whole world. 
I will lose the whole world when Reality comes screaming from the Sky. 
We leave this world with the same things we had when we did enter it. 
Our Love and Someday Smile.

Imprint of God

The hand of God touched my soul
I can do nothing without Him

Nature reveals His tenderness
Just as it does His wrath

Beyond all human comprehension
His love flows down from heaven above

Who reaches up for it and receives His love?
I watch and wait for any sign of Him 

My heart hungers for the day when I can be at His feet
Knowing my pain and suffering is over and peace reigns over all

His brilliance fills heaven and His love covers all 
What a merciful, yet jealous God we have

Jesus spent His life on earth showing us His Father 
He has shown us the measure of His love, the power of His anger

The depth of His compassion and mercy
And the fury of His wrath

I have seen the Hand of God work in my life
By the bruises He has healed and the tears He has collected

I have forever on my life
The Imprint of God

Heaven or Hell

From our behavior on Earth, we have a choice between heaven or hell
I'm trying to change my ways so that in heaven I may dwell

I plan to be around the cross and at the meeting
I plan to be with God and in his kingdom eternally

Getting to know God is the best thing we could ever do
Cause at the end of life, whose else eyes and face are you going to have to look 
    into?

I'm trying to get on board
So that I can be heavenly bounded with my Lord

No, not everything in my life is good
And there's other people who feel the way that I do, so I know that I'm not 
    misunderstood

I want to walk the streets that are said to be pearly
And enter the gates that are said to be gold

I want to be in heaven so I can forever be happy
So I can see of the wonders from the stories that I was once told

Me going to Hell is not in my vocabulary
So devil, step aside and get behind me

Don't touch me, don't push me, and don't tempt me
For I have prayer and God, and He will never leave me nor forsake me

If I keep God at the head of my track
He will keep you off of my back

You see, Hell is hot and only burns
And the devil can't do nothing for me but get on my nerves

There's so many things that God can do for me
That's why I choose heaven and heaven only

You and Me

As days go by,
I wonder why, 
Why did they take you,
My only friend who knew,
Knew the true and only me,
Now in heaven he can see,
See rain of tears I cry,
Every night wishing I would die,
Die so I can be with you,
In heaven, together, saying I do,
I do love you with all my heart,
Which will be sacrificed so we can never be apart,
Apart is where the world will stay,
Up in heaven you may pray,
Pray that we'll be happy till the end of my last day.

Angel of Time

Angel of Time


Time began with us in love
We were born with the heavens above
We have lived through the ages
And worn many different faces
You are my angel of time
Live forever in these lines

This love will pass from God to angels
Through heaven and time it’s self
This love will never die
It is written in the fabric of time

We have through every soul in love
And every vow promised to the Lord above
We are the love that starts deep within
The part of life where all new things begin
Together, forever and eternity
Time began with you and me

This love will pass from God to angels
Through heaven and time it’s self
This love will never die
It is written in the fabric of time


You are my angel of time
Live forever in these lines

because God loves me

He's been the source of my relief
backbone of my spiritual belief
He gives me such a sense of peace
He's been my ladder when I couldn't reach
I'll use His guidance and I'll teach
 I'll kneel to Him and I'll beseech
I'm everything you see because God loves me
He's been my strength when I felt weak
I hear His voice It sounds so sweet
I lift my hands to give Him praise
for giving me another day
He comforts me no matter when
I thank Him time and time again
I'm everything you see because God loves me
           {refrain}
God to You I give praise
love You in every way
need You all of my days
just You show me the way

whenever darkness manifests
I turn to Him for He is blessed
He's never ever let me down
lifted me up to higher ground
I come to Him in supplication
for spiritual rejuvenation
I'm everything I am
because I love Him
and when I read the Holy Scriptures
I finally get the full gospel picture
that on His word I do believe
there's nothing I cannot achieve
He is my one and only King
for Him I'll do most anything
I'm everything I am because I love Him
{refrain}
as I go higher and higher on
to reach the Kingdom of Zion
I know that He will meet me there
no need to have any fear
I will eternally reside
in Heaven by His graceful side
I'm all that I can be, because God loves me
my prayers have finally been rejoined
and up to Heaven I rise on
now I can truly see the Light
God's Kingdom is within my sight
with Him I will forever rest
sinless and now forever blessed
I'm all that I can be because God loves me
{refrain}
and now I look upon His face
I bow to Him in all His grace
there's no place I would rather be
right here with God beside of me
there's no more searching around
with Him I truly have been found
I'm where I want to be because God loves me
I'm where I want to be because God loves me
I'm where I need to be because God loves me

Falling from heaven

When I kissed her, It felt like the air became light and the room became bright. 
I was floating up to heaven only to fall from this flight for the stench of hell. 
How I am used to this now, having my heart shattered over and over again, from 
just one person, that person is you, my love.
Why do you say sorry? You don't mean it. Why else would you have done this to 
me? 
How it hurts falling from heaven into hell, when i found out that you kissed 
another man, and slept with another.
Sure I am alive, yet I would prefer death.This pain is unbearable.
I'm broken and can never be fixed, unless you say that you truly love me and wish 
to only be with me. Doubt that, that will ever happen though.
So now all I do is hold on to that strong painful memory and never let go, for I will 
always love you.
Please someday, look back and and love me, please. If it is not possible, kill me, 
because I don't want to know that I will never have you.

The Deeper Our Love

The deeper the love
the deeper the wound
all of heaven above
is wrought with angels that swoon

The farther we go
the farther we have
this path is long
we travel in-half

The more I have
the more we lose
this battle is not fought with love
no, to this angels refuse

The wider this valley
the wider the breach
what heaven does not have
we can not reach

The redder my blood
the deader the I feel
what heaven envies
my heart can not conceal

The harder they come
the harder they fall
I'll beat them down
houses and all

The stronger they hit
the stronger I fight
no winged seraph from hell
will take away our light

The colder you get
the colder my eyes
whatever savior comes to take you
is another by my hand that dies

The fainter you leave
the harder I cry
it's not heaven or its angels
that deserved to die

My Lifelong Love

I love the way his chain sit
I love his New York accent

He's so laid back
And is so cute when rockin' a du-rag

He's so real
He's the kind of guy who knows how to make a woman feel

He's so independent
The way it appears, he must be heaven sent

If it's a sin to feel like this
Then my spot in heaven doesn't exist

All my past relationships were daunt
But this one is exaclty what I want

It's my time to have someone who loves me for me
I'm not being selfish, cause that's what every girl needs

Girls, when you feel how I feel,
Your feelings will never again be concealed

It may feel too real
But it'll then be too late because your love has already been revealed

I don't have any regrets about meeting this guy
Because his love is good, and that I can't deny

I no longer have to look for love anymore
Because he came along and is what I'm looking for

If this is what God has in store for me to explore
This, I will not ignore

I hope this love will be forever
And I pray for joy and happiness in our endeavor

I have found the man that every woman dreams of
But most of all, I have found my lifelong love

My Testimony

   
As I look back on the life that I led,
I realize I was unhappy until I found Christ and through Him my life was fed.

Like a song I once heard I wondered aimless living in sin.
I just plowed through life refusing to let my Savior come in.

He was always there Gods gift of love,
Gods only Son sent from heaven above.

To cleanse our spirit and wash us clean,
To share His Kingdom of peace and love so wonderful and pristine.

So stubborn I was when I was young,
Bitter and tormented with a vile speaking tongue.

I knew of Jesus and what He was about,
But the devil had control and thus I was filled with doubt.

It was a mighty long journey before I surrendered my soul,
And accepted Jesus and Heaven as my ultimate goal.

The first few months after I accepted Jesus as my guiding light,
The devil got mad and put up one hell of a fight.

The devil hates losing especially someone he used to control,
It took a lot of prayers to save my soul.

A couple of months after I was saved I was practically bedridden for a couple of 
days.
I couldn’t even speak or walk just mumble and stumble for no reason as friends 
began to pray.

These mighty warriors of God I feel is what saved me I know in my heart.
No payment was required as my friends were only doing their part.

The presence of God is so real you’ll not change my mind.
An awesome love for all if you’ll only look you surely will find.

Soft--First Scripture

Born of windy delight and softer than a light breeze
blows your soothing blissful breath amid the swaying trees
So cooly it whispers to my upturned ear
that you have not left me so early this year
you are with me still and the world is ours
we are free again to covet the seas and the stars
The world is not this cold shriveled dead thing
and you are still able to sing in clear joyful ring
I love you with amber and gold from my beating heart
with your softer than cloudy embrace touch i never wish to part
though i know that this be only dream
i linger on in this peaceful stream
wishing you were still here to bathe me in love
trying so hard to still stand to look for you up above
yet the light fades into the dusk
and the living tree is creaking into dried husk
the stars turn cold and the breeze is bitter stone
there is no softer than soft wind when i cringe alone
I sigh and I cry
why wasn't i the one to die
then i crumble into this heap
fallen into nightmarish sleep
the angels have gone from my side
and the love i once had has fled to hide
no more Autumn in this place
when i can no longer kiss your face
so fragile i am now in this decrepit state
my world of love has twisted to the clawings of hate
how could heaven bestow such a gift
and steal it away on death's wings so terrible and swift
I given up all that i had just for you
but i guess much more than that had to be due
i loved you more than those pearly gates
and maybe that is why i angered those vain fates
i love you and have you not
underneath the ground is where you will now rot
it has been more than 15 years
you would think by now that i would have conquered those fears
you didn't really love me in the end
but i was still so glad to be called your friend
the roses blush with my obsession
but it was not one derived of possession
i loved you with a love that was pure
but it was a love life could not endure
for you see there can only be one heaven
and that can not dwell here on earth
the angels turn sour in their blessing
when another heaven is given birth
