PLAGIARIZING

"Mine all Mine!"

A thief I long to be
Your eyes original like the moon and sea

A lover in the world............
An Anthology, you walk and talk like the word "AMOR."

The words you send, I nicely tuck under my pillow
Every note every line you left behind 
I memorized till they became all mine
Word-for-word, 
Unauthorized I scrape the concrete calluses off the tongue
Pirating the perfect dramatic monologue look,
Basking through the passage around your Bio, 
Lost in the musky scent -around the sonnet of your aura light 
Epic enough, I reach inside to feel every idyllic rhyme
A strong iambic meter curse, conjuring up the perfect verse
In you I lift a copy paste from your lips, 
No need to credit the sources in your bliss
The sweetest undamaged sensual memorandum book
A moment I stole and sealed without copyright proof

My dearest Poet, 
When you move across the room
I see a thousand arrows that follow from behind, 
Indulged when you speak and point out verse per verse
I am a victim pampered by your words,
Sponging every line, adding them to my crib notes 
Improved wordplay that infringed my everyday diary
A haiku so tangible, it sets the perfect images in my dream,
Hypnotize after I read your first love poem
A printed feeling--
Borrowed from the sun

Gentle Summer Rain Art

Featuring:)  Giorgio Veneto

She writes about Fall's beauty in the rain 
The falling raindrops' dance ascribing thence 
Bespoken verse that lightens her refrain 
before the time they met - her steps commence. 

She listens to the soft and rhythmic thrum, 
her love turned to escape and cloudy string 
Where nimbus mistletoe fell, tears to become 
Their kiss of Autumn was symbolic ring. 

The first light cotton mists with summer rays 
While skyward cheerful laughs adorn the land, 
their ceremonial dance diffuses grays, 
affectionate embrace, where dreams expand. 

Upon September's sky the raindrops gleam 
With half of hidden Sun to laugh and beam.

Enjoy the FRAGRANCE OF RAIN

Mistress Fire

You are beautiful, like fire in the night,
warming me with no boundry
heating me with severity
burning me right,
encircling me with love danger delight,
rattling my manhood's erection
lapping through circulation
engulfing my might,

How could I be in love
with the wind, earth or water
when I have you, my Mistress of Fire,
Enchantress of my blood bud, of my dark dove,
a flamed feathered rub
you lick around my head of history
using red and gold strokes to paint mystery
supernatural seductress of bonfire therapy, I delve,

I stoke you repeatedly with my masculine trunk,
you spray sparks like a star in oval orgasm,
catching you with my soul's hot prism
we give our lust divine spunk,
price for thee, my heart's eternity you've drunk,
You, a woman rediscovering love of song
I, exploring rose ritual in your dawn,
Muse and Poet, minx and hunk  -

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door light a old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

A poem for YOU

In this world of Uncertainties I’m the man that you can trust And in my words of sincerity That my love would never last. And if you could only feel, what i feel for you You can ask me “why?” so you can see the truth Like our love that tightens the rope, Like a light that would give us hope. As you watch the dark skies Let me grab the moon for you, And as I catch the bright stars That’s the way you can see me through As this planet turns as it always will And things go wrong and you don’t know what to feel Hold my hand for it will make us strong Like a wind, we will carry on The wind blow that sings a hymn for you For they know what does love means for the two Love is blind, and not deaf So how’s success if you’re not ready to bet? In this poem with full of rhymes, A full of love, Babe can you be mine? I don’t expect too much from you Why should I? If you complete my whole. “Till death do us part” that’s what they have said But why do struggles crash them ahead? Don’t ask me when my love will last, To count all of our quarrels, is that a must? Now and Forever is all that I promise No day dreaming and without reminiscence As the matter of time, as the time passes by Together we stand, together you and I
A poem for my Girlfriend for our anniversary :) pls comment and rate... you are free to judge and criticize my work :) God Bless

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 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!

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.

Passionate Love

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

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

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

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

Language Barrier

I couldn’t understand the language she spoke,

at least not all of it,

but the emotion pouring past her lips, 

the tears in her eyes, her clenched and shaking fists

enunciated more clearly,

than any piece of English Poetry I had ever read,

and grabbed me, held me still.

                   …In that moment, her soul was in my arms.

In that finite, tender breath of our lives,

she was my mother, my best friend…

but I could not console her. 

I didn’t have the words;

and my heart sank into the 

concrete between us,

wet with the pain of God’s rain

and her tears. 

                  …Were my tears

So, I simply opened my palms

toward her crouched form and 

spoke the only words I could 

fathom, that would be accepted

by a stranger on a dangerous street. 

"I am sorry, It will be okay. God will bless you."

I knew she did not understand…

"Lo siento" 

                  “que va a estar bien”    

                            “Dios te bendecira’ “ 

the words were as messy as the overturned

duffle bag at her feet…and fumbled, slowly

from my lips, as my knees hit the street.

Two strangers, cried in the rain,

knowing nothing of each other’s suffering,

and yet we shared the weight,

together, for those few moments;

the barrier of language was broken.

Love spoke for us.

EMBERS OF TIME

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

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

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

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

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

AM GLAD YOU DO

___I'm glad you do___

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

In the history, those days won’t soon be forgotten
‘till this time, your words still worth a fortune
They will go nowhere; they will be with me forever
Those nights we shared, they will grow in me as ever.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

As ever, you're the light I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel at the fore
You're a heroine, that heroine of the war.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You set me free and still stay by me
You let me feel… the fresh of where I be
You succor to the battle you do not begin
You let me live… though you do not commit a sin.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You're my light, the one I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel I met at the shore
You're that queen, my queen for sure.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

I'm glad about what you do
You make my heart brand new.
I'm proud of you
I'm glad you do...

I Want to Sing Too

I can’t sing
I mean I can’t sing
I’ll leave the singing to Walt.
But I assume, as he assumes, as you assume, as all assume,
I love like you, love like him, love like the Lord above,
What is there? Singing? Why can’t I sing too?

Every cell and feeling that exudes from me,
Leaves an impression that I’m proud for all to see.
Every smile and gesture makes me a man,
It doesn’t always fit into my plan,
But I think the trepidation is waning,
The insecurity finally is straining.
All this time I’ve wanted to sing,
But it’s always been my failing.

I can’t sing
I mean I can’t sing
No that’s not true.
Something is different.
I no longer assume, I assure.
I don’t wander, I wonder.
I can’t fear, I fight.
I don’t love, I love YOU.

I haven’t sung because of others.
But these others are sisters and brothers.
Sometimes my voice might crack,
The beauty I may lack.
But YOU have opened my mind,
All this time I’ve been behind.
YOU have opened my eyes.
I’ve seen the pretty skies.
YOU have opened my heart,
And I’m ready to start.
YOU have opened my lung,
And I’ll be heard, and sung.

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.

SILENT PLEA

Words badly spoken
Shout - by - shout - by - shout
Let anger be spoken
Let all people around see and hear
Was that all you can do?!!!!

My heart pounding fast
Beating strong and hard
As if any moment I will burst
Sweats unstoppable running low

My fingers starts to shake
Each breath a shallow deep ones
Each glance a hidden plea
Each step carried with the heaviest gold

I want to speak but I can not
I am stunned
I am stripped
I am foot glued
I am hurting
Deep and open

I want to utter something
But I can not
Afraid to say something wrong
Scare to be put on fault
I am tired explaining
so tired...
so exhausted in a way even...

I run. 
run
keep on running
and there as I stop
Tears flow....

HOLDING ONTO YOU

I'm holding on to you
Won't let you drift away
Never going to let you go
Not tomorrow, not today
When the undertow is strong
You feel weak, can't fight
I'll hold you in my arms
Next to you all the night
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you
I'm your fortress, your rock
I cherish your every breath
Protecting you around the clock
I'm keeping all your secrets
I battle to conquer your fear
Never leave or forsake you
By my side I want you near
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you girl
Please hold on to me
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

The First Flower I Chose

The First Flower I Chose


You were my rose, the first flower I chose
A beauty so fair, such shine in your hair
You I chose, the finest ever love rose
Asked on a dare, the prettiest girl there

Soon we wed, pretty flower graced my bed
Nights sent such bliss, heaven I did not miss
Flames in bed, want no other instead
Honey that kiss, love never was like this

Years together, in good and bad weather
Loving every night, touching sweet just right
Joy our weather, sweet kisses a feather
Sexy the sight, your naked body at night

My rose did cast, true love that did so last
I held so fast, to that ship's greatest mast

The Door

Noah’s ark was real not a fiction
It had a door to escape God’s affliction
Noah delivered a warning message
But the folks mock their own presage

Men grew in sin and matured in transgression
And ignored Noah’s loving confession
The Door stood open a long time
Until time begin to climb

The Lord finally shut the Door
And the rain begin to pour
120 years of grace finally came to a halt
God administered judgment by default

The Door was a glorious type of Christ
He was the Lamb of God who was price
Jesus said “I am the Door of the sheep”
He is the only Door of that Great ship

Jesus is our Door of salvation
Wherein we enter and float as new creation
Behold He stands at your door this day and knock
Let Him in, you’ll find pasture as a partaker of His Holy flock

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep- John 10:7

How I Need Jesus


Dear Jesus…  I realize
how much I really need you!
  I want to honor, 
love and trust you!

I  know that others will
disappoint me…
I know that you’re here….  
And will take care of me!

  Your principles of holy
living is what you taught!
Love, Joy and peace…
is what you brought!

 May I bring honor 
 to your name!
Your message of salvation,
I need to proclaim!

Dear Jesus…  You’re all I need!
 And so much more!
It’s you that my life 
was meant for!

 I offer to you, my lord, 
praise and thanksgiving!
For all you’ve done,
 And the life you’re giving!

You all I’ll ever need!  
The anointed one!
There’s victory in YOU!
Life’s battles are won!

Rhythm of Reminiscing

Corrugated rhythm of the perforated heart
in the pulse of inspiration torn asunder, peeled apart
with the movement of discovery proving false in every start
as we danced the dance with no interpretation

Celebrated virtue of the lasting and the free
who have bent the will of romance glowing blind until they see
that the wise man is the single lonely voice in his decree
as they waltz the waltz with loneliness of footstep

Convuluted memory of the passion as we age
as our brain re-reads the paragraph on one determined page
where we left our heart with someone who in love did us engage
as we stepped the steps of someone else's dream

Corolated stringing of the music of the mind
in the heart beat of the moment I'm abated yet in time
with the fit of inspiration telling me you once were mine
as I pass the past a shadow reminiscing.

A kiss worth its taste

She’s too tough for hallmark’s corruption,

                too cool for an easy rhyme.

If I were to bring her flowers, 

I’d have to buy a package of

Reese’s cups, and a bag 

of licorice to construct

a bloom worth savoring. 

She craves the originality

of a still dreaming sun rise

popping its back against 

the morning, wiping 

cloudy sleep out of 

the eyes of our 

lambent sky.

The calm of hot tea’s

embrace, as the warmth

of its revision surges

down a chocolaty wasted

throat.

The purity of a love 

sweetened kiss, 

in the arms of life’s poetry.

If I were to bring her flowers,

I’d bring them with that embrace;

A kiss worth its taste.

Daddys Girl

You held me when I was just a babe, with hands so big and worn ..
You took responsibility from the day that I was born ..
You worked all day to give us food and a roof above our heads ...
You gave us coats and shoes and toys and a nice warm comfy bed ...
But one thing that you gave us most, each day without complaint...
Was your love and understanding on a never ending plate....
Most people think their dads the best, but I for sure can say ...
YOU are the best , the number one and in my heart you will stay ....
Thank you dad for being you and giving me a start...
You will always be most dear to me , even when we are apart .........

BREAK NA TAYO

“I love you, pwera biro
Hanggang sa langit ang pag-ibig ko
Peksman ikaw lang
Mamatay man, Hanggang sa mabuwang 
Tayo na forever, pinapangako ko
Till death do us part hanggang sa dulo,
Never na ‘tong magbabago
Para  sayo susungkitin ko ang mga ulap at buwan
Ganyan kita kamahal
Wag mu lang akong iiwan
Puso ko sayo ay iaalay, Magpasawalang hanggan”
Pero tao ka lang NATUTUKSO
Isipan moy naguguluhan, Nalilito
Biruin mo sa loob ng apat na buwan at isang taon
Hindi pala Happily EVER After, “Hanggang sa Dulo”
Mahal na mahal pa rin kita, G@GO !!!
Ang totoo nga nyan, BREAK NA TAYO!!!

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

PHYSICS of the MOON

Physics of the moon
 
I feel the lunar ecstasy in your heart
Connecting our vibes from over 1500 miles apart
 
With every swing of my mood ring, my sensational heart will sing
An out of this world phenomenon tune, "you are my everything!"
 
Absorbing every phase the moon goes threw
Sending energy between me and you
 
When our eyes meet on the darkest side of the moon
Your body mass rotates like a cyclone hitting my land like a typhoon
 
Like the gravity that bonds the earth and moon together
Our souls will collide with a massive force of forever
 
The image of you appears at all times like a moon cycle
Like a cascade running all around my mind, like a halo circle
 
Our love and vision orbits through every star
Giving us light no matter how near or far
 
The stars throb around the moon like a secret signal in the night
While you inhale my energy that exceeds into the morning light
 
Like a rainbow that enters and vanishes into the twilight of our sky
Our first kiss under the moon beam will twist our tongues into a tie
 
A sweet magnetic shadow will remain under the half moon
Sweeping our love above the clouds to float like a balloon
 
Holding a reflection with the moon's tide
Our journey continued, side by side
 
Emerging our love to find its way soon
Like a love mirage with the physics of the moon

A Mother's Love


A Mother’s Love… How precious is the love of a mother’s heart! Even as a child… It’s there from the start. A mother’s love knows no boundary or limit. It’s often shown by how much the mother gives it! Whether her children are young or growing old… And whatever circumstances in life may unfold… Her love is continually a solid foundation… That can’t be removed, torn or shaken. Her love is what is a “guiding force…” Even if her children’s lives stray “off course.” I’m thankful for the love my mother’s given… It’s surely influenced the way I’ve been livin’! To all of our mothers across our great nation… May we show them our love and appreciation! Their love has stood and endured the test of time… I’m so glad that one of them is MINE! By Jim Pemberton

Hugs

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

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!!

The Family That God Gave to Me

The Family That God Gave to Me I think about the family, that God gave to me... And think about where they'll spend eternity! I think about the good times, that we've had. And the trials we've faced... Both good and bad! God helped us to overcome adversity together! And proved his faithfulness... Today and forever! He showed us the Godly path, that we should follow... And promised to be with us! Today and tomorrow! He's proven how much he loves us! And how much that he cares for us! Thank you my lord, for all you do! Where would we be? If not for you? You've proven yourself over and over again! Thank you so much, for being our friend! By Jim Pemberton

Love Never Fades

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

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

Butterflies

 
 (my mind hath looked 
upon the speaking face of earth and heaven
as her prime teacher......[Wordsworth])  

I saw two butterflies wrapped in silent passion,
Her heart-shaped wings splayed flat against the sill
Her torso throbbing in anticipation...
Himself, hovering gently to hold her still.
I saw their sleek brown bodies tightly pressed,
His feet clinging to her lest the wind 
Tear him away.  I saw the shadows rest
Around them and the midday sun descend,
And still they lay outside my window pane...
I wondered why it is that we must rush
And why my timid touches are but vain
And useless gestures, why he must always crush
The urgings. Nature’s children seem to know
That love is best when cherished soft and slow

THE SCENT OF WATER Forlorn, distance roots between you and I; Carve 'neath fire silhouettes buried grief; Burn then blurred by irrational mischief; Has crimson love gone pale and soon may die?

A never ending story

A never ending story

It’s a never ending story
This story of our love
A story of an angel
Who was sent from up above
To love me and to nurture me
And make my life complete
It’s a never ending story
So perfect and so sweet.

That I’ll love you forever
This be wrote within the stars
I could not meet a sweeter girl
And just the way you are
To me this be perfection
You have so much allure
And everything about you
Is wonderful and pure.

This never ending story
Is the tale of love so grand
A story filled with magic
That I can’t understand
But I need it and I want it
To go on till forever
This never ending story
Of the two of us together.

Wildflowers

Standing out in a field alone, a little white flower named Daisy longed for someone to share her world.
One day a blue flower named Bachelor Button entered her world they became friends.
 She knew by his name that he was not the propagating kind, but that didn’t stop their relationship she called him BB short for best bud.
The seasons of Spring & Summer they enjoyed the sun, laughed in the rain and held on fast in the Fall.
Winter came it was long and hard they were both covered in a blanket of snow, not knowing whether they would ever see each other again or even survive .The snow fell     then came the ice, this went on for months.

The Sun shone brightly the first day of spring. A few days later warmth of the sun melted the snow, Daisy popped up .
 I’ve been waiting days for you to come out, said BB, they both chanted hooray!
The snow was completely gone in a few days, the birds started building their nests , bugs were crawling around ,butterflies began to visit the two flowers. I wish there were more of us Daisy said, to BB.

They laughed as the sun and wind blew through their leaves.  Then it started the sun and rain took turns until one morning the air & field was filled with the smell of flowers.
 
Daisy and BB looked at each other and asked what kind of flowers are these ? they’re not white like daisies they’re not blue like bachelor buttons. They did not know the birds and bugs carried the seeds from the two of them and the caterpillars buried them under the soil.
The seeds from the new flowers were then carried by the winds many miles away, they landed in fertilized gardens and flourished, although they faced danger everyday. 
as they were called WEEDS ..
 The Gardener pulls weeds out of the garden so they don’t choke the flowers, which cost a lot of money and require lots of maintenance.

However there was a Gardener who saw her friends spending hours weeding their garden , that they didn’t have enough time to admire and enjoy the labors of their love
So she set out to give a home to all the weeds ,she provided a place where they could fit in and multiply, they required no maintenance, rain provides their water .

The best part of all is their beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 Ask my granddaughter-- What are those flowers in the garden ?
  She will answer "WILDFLOWERS " their parents were Daisy and BB

First Crush: You Crushed My feelings forever

For the boy who had gone through his first crush..  wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

 First Crush: Crushed My feelings forever!!

Her epitome of innocence and virtue made me sick.
Friend around me suddenly pricked.
Scene from the titanic in my mind clicked.
I lost somewhere else and she squandered the opportunity.
Crazy girl, You clinged my heart!!

She was suffice so as I.
Looking at her radiant smile, I was blessed.
My feelings blushed on my cheeks.
God had postulated the first law of love.
Was it the infatuation?? Was it the love??
Crazy girl, Your face is glued on my heart!!

Blue whales diving down deep into the sea.
Molluscan shell in her arms, holding the glittering pearl.
Sun and moon playing the game of hide and seek.
God showered the ecstatic divineness.
Love arised from both the ends .
Her expression occupied the quadrangle of my soul.
Crazy girl, Your adorable persona sticked on my mind!!

My friends tagged her as my Queen.
But it was just a mystery.
I waited till last..
But She didn't rebelled the three precious words.
Desperately waited for the moment.
But When i saw her with his boyfriend.
Crazy girl, You killed my heart!!

Getting goosebumps,
Just left tears in my eyes.
Each and every memories of mine are fragmentized.
Just left with the ashes of moments that we share together.
Life just can't stop without being you.
But you are the luckiest one to be remembered for life time.
Crazy girl,My crush,You crushed my soul!!  with Suyog Pagare

Walking with Hope


Walking with Hope


I walk with hope,
at long last, I walk with promise,

I no longer crawl,
scurrying between wounded moments,

I stand tall again,
at long last, I sing a peaceful refrain,

sheltered by your love,
I take solace from life's bitter rain,

comforted by your warmth,
I soar free, high above the empty plain.



I walk with hope,
at long last, I walk with promise,

I stand upright,
feeling the radiance of your gentle light,

and I thank you for taking me in,
I am yours, and your breath spreads life,

deep in my heart, my soul, my mind,
you are the love that I have searched so long to find...

Many In Church Don't Know God's Power

Many In Church Don’t Know of God’s Power!

There’s many people who attend church on Sundays.
And yet don’t really understand what God’s word says!

Many get excited when the church has a “coffee hour.”
But few really have a desire to experience God’s power!

Prayer time is too often just a few words that are said.
They sing a good tune, but many are “spiritually dead.”

An evangelist comes to town, and many rush to see him!
It’s almost like they want to “bow down” before him!

I’m not here to look for a preacher to get me “excited.”
I want to experience the power of God, that he’s provided!

If I need a drive thru restaurant, I don’t need a church to do it!
When it comes to knowing God’s power…  Many refuse it!

It’s only the power of the Lord Jesus, that can raise the dead!
It’s only through knowing his word, that we can truly be fed!

If you want someone to stroke you ears, you’ll find them!
Many will say what you want to hear!  You probably know them!

But if you really want the power of God to really change you!
You need to seek his presence!  And allow it to touch you!

If you can’t find it in a church building, get into a prayer closet!
There’s a move of God that’s stirring!  But many have lost it!

Seek the Lord while he may be found!  And enter into his presence!
The Holy Spirit wants to fill you with power!  And is omnipresent!

Please come Lord Jesus, and forgive us of our sinful living!
May we enter your courts with a heart 
of praise and thanksgiving!

We need you Lord Jesus!  May we lift your name up higher!
And seek to be filled with your Holy Ghost’ fire!

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.

We Are There With You

You do not stand alone in your Battle
Your battle is our Battle
We may not be there in body
But we are there with you in Spirit

We are there in every beat of your Heart
In every whisper of the wind
In every thought and every touch
Every breath and every sound
We are there with you

You are wrapped in an Endless chain of Love
In every link we each send you a part of us
We send you some of our Strength
Some of our will to Fight
Some of our Courage
The most important of them all
We send you all of our Love

If you feel you need more
Just give that Endless chain a little tug
And we'll be there
Tug til you need us no more
Then we'll know you've gone Home

May the Love of Jesus Touch You


May the Love of Jesus Touch You!

May the love of Jesus bless and touch you!
May his presence be with
 and uplift you!

May the joys of the love make
 you complete!
And touch you, from your
 head to your feet!

May the glory of the lord
 be with and keep you!
His majestic power can really touch you!

May the words that he’s spoken,
touch your spirit!
His mercy and salvation… 
 He freely give it!

May the sweetness of Jesus,
 into your life bring!
His righteousness and beauty!  
Your everything!

May you take some time
 with Jesus in prayer?
How much he loves you! 
 How much he cares!

amid the rain and mist

amid the rain and mist

Amid the clouds I saw, the tears she shed,
aside her thoughts - the birds that fled in pairs,
the dusk descended 'pon our lost affairs,
the cotton fog was dense - my only wed.

It was September then; the first of rain,
the harvest ended and the maidens passed,
persistently the nimbus, dark, amassed,
- drops falling randomly to our refrain.

The maid was walking in the rain and mist
our glances blades to cut-and-thrust, beset
upon our souls' new sacrificial debt,
we felt the beckoning of rain and tryst.

She stood in the melancholy of Fall
pristine, accustomed to the old vendette;
the rain was falling on our courting duet
revolting to our burning blood and souls.

She wore black clothes, due to her lost affiance,
betrothal waging to the recent war
of nineteen hundred ten, an odd memoir
her mind was set to fight - she stared askance.

I walked that night the street below her louvres,
she watched; her velvet eyes, rare beauty braw
and feral attitude were bold and wraw
while she inhaled my scent and aural oeuvre.

The moon had risen large that night and round,
untamed she came, outlined in lunar light.
Against the wall her flesh became my rite,
to carnal prayer she turned upon the ground.

And then from molten skies, the rain began
with eyes reflecting flash, on earth she groped,
with me confessor of her sins eloped,
beneath the rain, her bitten lips impart.

In The Land of Light

When I tell you that I love you 
I mean it like NO other

It does not come from my mind 
nor my heart  

But from deep within my soul


I love you with the innocence 
of an infant and the playfulness 
of a child
Like the daydream of a 
teenager and the content in a 
woman's smile

It's a love that grows within me 
every time I meet your gaze
A love that embraces and binds 
me in so many different ways

A love that sparkles on the 
river like the sun could only get 
brighter
As breathtaking as the 
waterfalls which make 
discomforts lighter

A love that has the power to 
make the forests much more 
greener
That illuminates the ocean and 
makes all melodies sound 
sweeter

A love that views the night sky 
more magical than it seems
That allows me to fall sleep and 
have the most enchanting 
dreams

A love that puts me at ease 
and gives me peace of mind
It encompasses all of my 
beliefs and strengthens bonds 
to the Divine

This love in its entirety was not 
even portrayed above
As there is no earthly way to 
even begin to describe my love 


I cannot say that I will love you 
forever, as that is a time to 
measure 

In the place that I truly love 
you, time does not exist

It is in the land of light where 
only this love subsists

I am an acquaintance
I am a loyal friend
I am a stranger
I am a cousin
I am an Auntie
I am a niece
But who is this person, they all call "Denise?"

She is a child to God

She is happier than she ever imagined possible

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

The kindness of a stranger

Sitting on the bus with a
thirst. My little girl asking
me for a drink, yet I have
nothing to give.

A kind
stranger over hears. An old
lady with silvery grey hair.
She taps my daughter on the
shoulder with a bottle of spring
water. 

It is a lesson learned, giving
from the heart. Sometimes you do
not need to look far. The human
touch can still spill from the heart
with love, meaning so much.

My faith has
increased from that encounter, that
minute in the hour. With an old
silvery grey haired lady on the bus.

Happiness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If Old Men Fought

An old man looking out his door,
gaze fixed on a distant shore,
reminiscing to a time, not of happiness,
or, the prospect of a bright future,
to when he was sick to his very core,
to when as a youth, he went to war

A time before infallibility had meaning,
patriotism and bravado the craze,
the future was still unknown,
vigor for life at its all time high,
a time for romance, partying, buying,
no thought of pain, deformity, dying

Too young to understand or question,
ship to foreign shore, medals abound,
will impress the girls next time in town,
sacrifice not temporary,
forever more,
a legacy etched into a wall, few will remember,
flesh shredded, burned, torn,
families mourn

A time, when he willingly went to war,
will happen no more,
all lost in youth, now unrelenting,
no blind obedience,
minimal risk,
long life, his number one ambition

As he turns back from the door,
he thinks of the youth,
here now, soon no more,
lessons never learned,
the call to war,
to common the roar,
complacency the mood,
another generation removed

The old man agonizes
over what was originally not known,
war is preventable,
life too precious to waste,
the solution simple,
his vision, maybe too late

Send old men to the front to fight,
arthritis, heart disease, poor eyesight,
let the youth enjoy their life,
his near over, its only right

Send old men, to the front, to fight
ask them to give up their life,
patriotism and bravado, still alive,
will and desire would not last the night,
old men do not rush to death in their twilight,
failure inevitable, the old man smiles,
knows he's right

Wars not possible,
if old men, are sent to fight

God Gave Us Brothers And Sisters For A Reason

God Gives Us Brothers and Sisters For A Reason!

God gives us brothers and sisters for a reason!
As children, we have each other, throughout the seasons!

We laugh and play together and do all sorts of things…
Often not realizing what the future of life brings!

As kids, we often share whatever life may give us!
And stick together, no matter what trials may face us!

But, as we grow older, too often, we part separate ways.
And lose any contact with each other for countless days!

I’ve seen all kinds of things tear families all apart.
Often, there’s some kind of
 unforgiveness of the heart!

If you, and your siblings, have reached a separation…
May you seek Jesus for
a Godly reconciliation!

As family, whatever divides, must be lifted up in prayer!
Where two or three are gathered…  God is there!

Just think about what the family unit has become!
The love of Jesus must be what binds us all as one!

Getting along as a family, is more than just a “feeling!”
The blood of Christ needs to bring an “inner healing!”

The family that each of us have,
 may not be here tomorrow!
Are you one who’s holding on to bitterness and sorrow?

May the words of Christ help us all to get along!
That through HIM, our families
will be STRONG!

How is Love being Measured

“How is love being measured?” I asked
Is it by words that lovers discuss?
Is it the pain and trials they’ve been through?
Or how many times they say I love you?

“How is loved measured?” that I don’t know
Is it on how they let their love show?
Is it on how they never let each other go?
Or the years they let their love grow?

Is love measured by time?
Or by the feelings people can’t define?
Is it measured on how many times they kissed?
Or by the colorful presents and given gifts?

Is love measured by miles?
Or the times they made each other smile?
I don’t know how to measure love,
But I know that the greatest is from God above.


How about this, guys? :)

God Bless!!!

We Need God Back Into Our Schools

We Need God Back Into Our Schools!

There are some trying to remove God from this nation!
They do is under; “a church and state separation.”

For many years,  God was taught in our schools!
Until the Supreme Court took it away, with it’s rules!

As so many young people look to fill life’s “void.”
They try many things that they think they’ll enjoy!

Rather than having God’s word to obey and live by.
They choose the kind of life that they will die by!

Drugs, sex and violence of many perverted kinds.
Are what is now filling so many young people’s minds!

Read the headlines!  Many young people are stressed out!
Yet our government can’t seem to figure it out!

Another shooting…  Another act of violence appears!
While any kind of answer seems to have disappeared!

The answer is not more money to solve their problem!
No matter how much the government tries to solve them!

Let me give you answer.  It’s called “read the Bible 101!”
It’s time to repent to God the father, the spirit and the son!

Our young people need God brought back into their life!
And allow him to heal their brokenness and strife!

Jesus Christ is the solution for which many are asking!
Only he can give anyone a life that’s everlasting!

Please come Lord Jesus!  And heal the wounded hearts!
It’s everyone one of us, that it needs to start!

No court or school can separate God’s love for you and me!
Where will you spend your eternity?

At Church We Talked About the Holy Spirit

At Church, We Talked About the Holy Spirit!

At church, we talked about the Holy Spirit.
And discussed how to be guided by it!

We discussed scripture and God's power!
And how we need his spirit...  This hour!

We learned about how the Holy Spirit moved long ago.
And how we need it now!  To nourish our soul!

It seemed like no matter what we decided
We knew the spirit's power has been provided!

Rather than just all of us talking about it...
Isn't it about time, that we really experience it?

The disciples of the Bible were empowered from on high!
They boldly proclaimed God!  And were not shy!

It's almost like the church today is somewhat defeated!
Because the Holy Spirit's work isn't completed!

How can anyone experience the Holy Spirit within?
When so many hang on to unrepentant sin???

If you're one, who's hanging on to a denomination...
Is God's spirit part of your life's foundation???

Won't you take the time to wait on the spirit's presence!
God is powerful!  And is loving and omnipresent!

Talk is cheap!  Submission to God's spirit is the key!
To help you in life!  And give you the victory!

Won't you come now?  And enjoy the spirit's fullness?
It will bring you joy! 
And complete wholeness!

US in JesUS

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

Ode To Marriage

Can I have this hand in marriage dear,
Can you grace me with "I do",
Let the angels sing to Heaven,
Let my heart soar with their tune.
Let us seal our love for we two,
Let no others interfere,
Let Evil, with his one good eye,
Attempt to trick and snare.
Let Age pass on his cares to us,
For bound, we are as one,
We'll ride the heady winds of joy,
Until another song is sung.
Until another song is sung, my love;
We'll drink the drink of fools;
Let passion be our compass,
And a blinding trust our rule.
Let us plant the seeds of new life,
That through Time will resonate,
Let our names be always dear to those,
Who set them on their fate.

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

This cosy love

This cosy love

In guess I could rave on, and on
About every little thing
I could write about those sensual things
And the way our two hearts sing
When we lie there together
But it's so much more have we
We have this thing together
All filled with mystery.

You be the grand earth mother
As me, I be the child
You're ways are from the earth itself
You're tame where I'm still wild
Everything's so practical
With you, but not with me
Oh yes, we two be opposites
And yet I love you madly.

And even now, at seventy
There's nothing really changed
You're still the perfect lady
And you still think me strange
But I'm always going to love you
Just the way that you love me
And even when these shells are gone
This fact shall always be.

In love with life

In love with life

How can one hold it in? 
All this happiness, this glee!
I dance and sing so endlessly
That’s just the way it be
Some people think me quite insane
Cause they don’t understand
How the energy just pours on out
When life, it feels so grand.

I walk around on crutches
And yet I dance within
Every morning I wake up
A symphony begins
Cause each day is delightful
As the sun shines up above
Some say it’s insanity
But me, I call it love.

It be a special kind of love
It’s there for all of life
My end is coming ever near
But when my time is rife
I’m going to dance my life away
To that place that waits for me
Cause joy it bubbles constantly
So loose, and fancy free.

When I grow old

I will grow old
I tremble in the cold
None to care
I have nothing to fear...

But my love is alive
Though I strive
Beautiful roses to pluck
Yet I am stuck..

I grow old with wrinkle
Yet I will kinker
You will always remain in my mind
This is how you will find...

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!

The Dust God

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

It's A Pleasure to Really KNOW Jesus

It's A Pleasure to Really KNOW Jesus! Often people get in trouble for deviant activity. This often shortens their life's longevity! As people strive or pleasure in so many things... They don't think of the heartache this often brings! Many seek pleasures, but are never fulfilled! Often becoming self centered, and stubborn willed! The "excitement" they want, doesn't last very long. Soon, they don't know where they really belong! If it's the thrills and joys of life, you've been spending... Isn't it about time, that you just stop "pretending?" The pleasure many want will NEVER be there! Is anyone really listening? Does anyone care? If it's pleasure many want... Look no more! We are what Christ' love is really meant for! Jesus Christ gives the best pleasure we'll find! He's faithful, honest, graceful and most kind! Isn't if about time, you let him turn you around? And let him put your life on a solid ground? He can do it now! By the power of his shed blood! And truly bless your life! From heaven above! I'm so thankful to him, for the joy he brings! He is God! And can provide ANYTHING! By Jim Pemberton

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!

FOREVERMORE

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

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

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

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

GOD ALONE

I have barely seen Him or catch even His shadows around. 
I have barely touch His hands...
Nor I have barely heard His soft soothing voice..
Nor I have barely felt His footseps lurking beside or behind me..

However, what a deep soaring reassurance is His presence...
Not of like a Human Being that can be perceive..
Rather He is the silent rescuer and ever living Spirit..
No need for extravagant welcoming..

He has always been within our innerselves..
He is the calmer of our quivering nerves..
He is the greatest teacher not wanting us to fail. 
He is our dearest friend not forgetting..

He always is waiting for you and me..
His arms widely open to embrace us..
His unending; unfailing is so felt..
Beyond wonders; beyond times and beyond borders..

All the time we are invited to talk to Him..
Even sing a song for Him and with Him..
More to play a harmonious melody to commemorate Him..
Truly, majestic in limitless abundance is His providence...

He is only one..
No one can overpass Him..
All the earth will uphold His Name..
He is our God - OUR GOD...

The Look On My Child's Face

The Look On My Child’s Face…

Just yesterday I noticed a look of
 love on my child’s face.
This happened in a most  “ordinary place.”

It was in our home.
 A place by God’s design.
I felt God speaking to my heart
 this particular time.

I didn’t take any time to
 stop and realize,
The look of love and innocence
 in my child’s eyes.

“Am I being the kind of Dad
 God wants me to be?”
“Am I being an example of Christ
 for my child to see?”

Have I been demonstrating my
 God-given ability,
teaching my kids God’s love,
 and responsibility?

May a Christ-like life in my kids
 be clearly seen and understood,
As one day they will 
grow into adulthood.

I hope that one day my
 Children will say:
“I want to be like my Dad-
every single day!”

DOG NAMED BLUE

I had a plain pet rock 
Before it was a fad
I longed for a puppy
Wasn't allowed by dad
So I'd just pretend 
It was my shaggy dog
We'd go on walks
And jump over logs
We'd lay in the grass
And take in the rays
Me and my pet rock
On summer dog days
When school started
I'd take him with me
Kept in my pocket
No one could see
This boy had a dream
Now it's come true
Me and my son
Have a dog named Blue

A Very Inviting Temptation

A Very Inviting Temptation! I remember of a particular situation. I was offered a very "inviting" temptation. The situation I was in... I didn't belong! And lost any sense of "right and wrong." At first... I felt no guilt or shame. And brought embarrassment to my family's name. I tried to explain this to my wife and kids. I heard; "Dad... please... no more fibs!" The Godly principles were "tossed to the side," As the sin inside caused arrogance and pride. Soon, all in my life that truly mattered... Was gone! My life was empty and shattered! I was sorry for all of the problems I caused! This time... I took a moment to pause. I cried to God to rescue me from my sin. I confessed! Would God help me once again? I read in the Bible of Jesus’ grace and love! This time the help I needed had to come from above! I asked him for a fresh and brand new start. He removed the stain from a broken heart. He restored to me the joy I once had. I'm so blessed! Jesus has made me glad! Jesus is the reason I'm here today! I LOVE HIM more than words can say! By Jim Pemberton

Every day is a wonderful day

Every day is a wonderful day

Every day is a wonderful day
Each moment a pleasure indeed
Cause I live on a wonderful planet
Where my life does fill all my needs
There’s the sun that comes up in the morning
The sweet birds that sing in the trees
And those trees as they reach up to heaven
Oh, I love how they dance on the breeze

It seems to me everyone’s moaning
About all the things they don’t like
There’s something so strange about people
A sadness that touches their Psyche
They don’t see the world quite like I do
And they don’t like me smiling at all
And because I’m a happy old fellow
They think I‘m a bloody old fool.

But I wear a smile, cause I’m laughing
At all of the troubles I’ve had
I once was a troubled young fellow
And everything hurt me so bad
But now there’s the sun in the morning
And everything life gives to me
And I am one happy old fellow
As I love everything that I be.

CHAINED HEARTS

I have neither gold or silver..
Sure, I do not have a fever..
Though at times, I shiver..
For something brings me to quiver..

Dear when I am near you..
I smell scents so pure in you..
Ensuing me to devour more..
Heightening my inside's lure..

How could I touch you sweet..
How could I caress you in gyst..
How could I solely stare at you such..
How could I envelop you tight in warmth...

I truly am thinking of you..
Could it be our hearts chained to tune?
Do forget anyhow the dues..
Mindless the talk, It's you I choose..

Words

Words are only not a collection of Alphabets
Words are only not letters used to write a language
It is not only an expression of intellectual knowledge

Words are thought, words are destiny
Words can stab you like a knife
“The Words I preach to you are spirit, and they are life”

Words are the architect of your life
By words the world was frame
It never took His Power or fame

Words can guide the sword
Words can destroy a nation
Words can repair a nation

Words are weaved by the state of the mind
For by thy words thou shall be judged by them
And by thy words thou shall be condemn

Words conveys a message, good or evil
They are the cause and cure of discrimination
Words can indeed bring transformation

Words are blessings from above
They are poems which we compose and write
More importantly, it resonate in our heart at night

Love needs Two Hearts

Love cannot bloom,
love cannot go on,
love cannot persue it dreams,
love cannot be what it is meant to be,
love cannot be where it is supposed to be,
if love doesn't have two hearts.

Love needs two hearts to be true,
Like water to a dried rose
makes it bloom in spring weather
with such glory and beauty.
Love cannot be true if one heart
doesn't love the other.
Care, trust, honesty and loyalty
in love it has no boundaries,
it has no color, it has no age,
like a fine wine or an aged whiskey
it grows better with time.
But love cannot fullfill without the other half.

If a woman loves man,
let her love him,
if you love me,
than love me, but if my heart is gone
and cannot be found in such relation with you
then I must halt, till my heart comes around.
If it never does show with the first light of morning,
then it wasn't meant to be with thee.
Come now, do not shed a tear for me,
a simple heathin, who cries havoc
when something doesn't go his way.
Do not cry, do not shed your one of a kind tears
for a souless man, for a heartless man like I,
but do not blame me,
if my heart cannot be found.

Love needs two hearts,
not one or the other can survive
without each other.
Love is patient, love is kind,
but with ever lover comes another.
And we will all fall in great and deep love,
be intoxicated with each other,
and our sweet kisses that God himself would shed a tear
for such beauty that still exisits.
Love needs two hearts,
you cannot have one, without the other.

Healing Can Only Happen When the Pain Is Gone

Healing Can Only happen,
 When the Pain is Gone!

Healing can only happen, when the pain
 and damage are gone!
It can only come about, when there’s
 no “lists” of wrongs!

People need to move ahead, and put all
 of the past behind them!
And seek God’s forgiveness, 
so his grace can find ‘em!

Too many carry a load of sorrow
 and grief that they can’t afford!
They need to bring everything to Jesus,
 and make him their LORD!

How can we experience healing,
 if the suffering is still there?
How will we ever be able to love others,
 and truly care?

May we all seek the kind of healing,
 that only Christ can bring!
May we allow him to remove
 all pain and suffering!

Jesus…  We need your healing now!  More than ever before!
It is your love that we must learn
 to treasure and adore!

Please come now and refresh us with your awesome love!
The sweetness of your Holy Spirit, is a gift from above!

Thank you God!  The pain is gone and the healing has come!
All praise, glory and honor to Jesus!
 God’s anointed son!

Is It God We Trust Or Leave In the Dust

Is It God We Trust? Or Leave In the Dust? As our courts remove God from this great nation. We are left with a confused and lost generation! As God is taken away from our public schools. A huge tide of immorality is what “rules.” The Bible is often mocked and discarded. It was on it’s principles this country was started! Just about anything of God seems to get scorned. So many “rush” to worship many ungodly forms. As God’s name is often tossed and thrown out. We tend to forget what HE is all about! Too often, his plans for living are tossed and abused. No wonder, there’s many who are lost and confused! As people forget God and worship the fallen creature. They look to themselves and “glorify” their features. Many ignore God, and get involved in deep addictions. And with this, come disease, heartache and afflictions! As God looks and sees this nation “bleeding.” It’s his righteousness, that we need to be seeking! If we would humble ourselves, he would hear our prayer! He loves all of us! And he really does care! Won’t you come to HIM, And invite him in? Won’t you allow him to be your master and friend? He brings strength and nourishment to the soul! It’s only in him that we can be made whole!

Where Is My Life Going


As I think about where my life has been...
It’s hard to believe that I’m still here again!

I think about the many things
 I’ve been through.
And ask myself the question; 
“what am I going to do?”

With the trials of life, 
have come trials.
A life filled with uncertainty 
and many “traveled miles.”

It’s like riding the waves of life’s stormy sea.
Never knowing where the next wave will take me!

Everything I know...  And all that I’ve done…
I lay down my life at the feet of Jesus... 
 God’s precious son!

I ask you Jesus for mercy!  I come to you now!
I come before your majesty and humbly bow!

You’ve brought love and wholeness within!
You’ve given me a “new life!”  
And took away my sin!

I love and thank you Lord, 
for your hand extended!
The beauty of your holiness
 is to be commended!

You brought to me hope,
 in a hopeless situation!
And have given to me 
the wonderful gift of salvation!

Growing In Years

He is my gentle seduction
that makes me lighter than air
he holds onto me firmly
so I won't up and disappear

Not that I don't love him
but in fact, I love him so dear
but remember, I told you, 
he makes me lighter than air

He has to be my angel
God sent me, I, unaware
for years I stopped dreaming
I guess out of lonely fear

But today, I woke from dreaming,with him kissing my ear
how perfect our love is, in our older years
enjoying those simpler things like cooking
fishing or just holding the other near

He is my handsome husband
the father of my children, our truest bliss
soon the grandfather to the symbol
of all these growing in loving years

Falling In Like

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

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

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

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

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

After days,months and years we build together
Here we are now to be forever
I know that this is God's will
And I trust God for everything

No matter what we may face in future

Last Summer Saturday

Poorly heated coffee;
I can't seem to get it hot enough.
Tired eyes still rolling,
Film draped for dreaming.
This last Summer Saturday,
Might as well call it Fall.
The pumpkins out and jumping,
Future jack-o-lanterns for fun.
Gentle breeze cascades,
Every once in a while a poof.
Sunny sun still sunning;
Please don't ever go away.
Time to heat up the coffee;
My goodness this is good!
So open arms and lean back;
God is so, so good!

Princess Angelina

Princess Angelina

Princess Tinsels baby daughter
Has grown up quite a bit
And my, oh, my, she’s beautiful
Oh, she has all of it
A heart of gold, a lovely form
And she’s so full of bliss
Her name is Angelina
So very sweet she is.

She has a way with animals
That seems at times like magic
She loves all people, all of them
And when their days are tragic
She’ll give them the milk of kindness
She has the healing touch
And even gnomes and bitter demons
They all love her so much.

Angelina, she is loved
By all who hear her name
Folk they come from miles around
To see this girl of fame
One day she will be their queen
And it is plain to see
That when she takes that station on
A wondrous Queen she’ll be.

Catch My Fall

God, please heal this broken soul
And tell me where to go
Because I don't know where to go.
Into Your Arms,
I give my all
Because You're the Only One
Who can catch my fall.

ESPECIALLY FOR MAMA

Nine solid months of changes, you carried me
While I am in your womb, You take care for me
Your shape, I unshaped
Your stamina, I weaken

With every food you intake, I partake
With every emotions, I feel you too
With every movement, we both sway
With everything, together you and me

Mama, That I used calling you
Eight to how many hours you labor
That I do not specifically know now
All I know is that you love me so
(Mama, I love you too... )

Together, we go to window shops
Guiding me you never ever stop
To my heartbreaks, you, ready to mend
To my winnings, kudos, you always send

I love you my dearest mama!
Though I don't tell you this much
Evermore to your every touch, 
I am so deeply attach!

The Bible Gives the Recipe for Success

The Bible Gives the Recipe For Success!

The Bible gives the recipe to be successful!
Life doesn’t have to be burdened and stressful!

True spiritual success, may not be what you think of!
God can give much more, than you can dream of!

He gives joy unspeakable!  The half hasn’t been told!
You can walk with him one day,
 on streets of gold!

Blessings come from allowing
 Jesus to rule your heart!
This is where an abundant life,
 can actually start!

Fellowship with Jesus, is friendship divine!
He can restore your life! 
And bring peace of mind!

He can restore anything the enemy
 has taken away!
And offers true love and joy,
 to brighten your day!

God’s recipe for success, 
cannot be made or bought!
His son died for you! And loves you a lot!

Won’t you read the Bible? 
 And allow God’s word to be applied?
Everything you’ll ever need in life... 
 He has supplied!

Please Lord Jesus…  
Come and fill our empty soul!
It’s only YOU that can make us whole!

WILLINGLY

                          I am not your mind, but I think of you 
               I am not your heart, but I feel you and I'm missing you
                         I am not your family, but I care for you
               I am not your blood, but am ready to share the pain
          I am not your voice, but I can tell how good or bad you are
     I am not a comedian nor a clown, but I'll be happy seeing you smile
     I am no engineer nor an architect, but I can be your blocks to build
I am neither an anesthesia nor an analgesia, but sure I can relieve your hurt
     I am no priest nor a police, but I can well listen for woos and truths
     I can be both devil and angel, but sure by all means I am mere human
     Above all these, I am one willing person to accept the whole of you

'Give me drink, rest, and solitude'

Give me drink, rest, and solitude--
these are all the things I long for.
Give me as well your finest food
and I'll ask of you, lass, no more!

My bonnie lass, what's the matter--
why are you all sorry and alone?
Don't be sad because you're fatter
than most, lass, for love loves its own.

Sweet lass, I'll tell you a secret.
If I were a young lad again,
I'd pursue you without regret!
But as I am three-score and ten

years old, indeed, I can never
be the youthful lad you most need.
But your pain won't be for ever:
for your heart will refuse to bleed.

Make him a soldier

Make him A Soldier


Make him a soldier 
so I won't cry anymore

Transform a boy to a man
 so he will stand...alone

 In the dark forest
 beaming 
as natural combustion of dusk in the sky 


Red blood running through our veins is the same
identical as if we share the same DNA 

And even as a child I couldn't deny how our hearts beat the same 

Rate pulse pace...boom 
it startled me
 but as I gaze in his eyes 
I felt a deep connection 
as if he knew me better than I knew myself
 
White
Our love is so pure and shall never be tampered 
and even if life tries to poison us 
we will always have each other 
pure love
 
Blue water
 a million miles away from me 
and as he travels from sea to sea 
I think of him daily 

I try to remember where we came from
 blue water 
shared space 
different times

 Blossomed from a tulip where our petals do not vary 
and the sepals seem to follow a course set to sail 


So I beg you 
Make him A soldier 
so I won't cry an ocean of tears 
Transform a boy to a man
so he will stand beside me in my darkest hour.
 Help me to raise my head 
when he is long gone from here 

When my fears are red 
 my soul turns blue 
let me remember the purity of us 
how I loved a my brother a man of red, white and blue!

BEAUTY IN LIFE SPONTANEITY

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

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

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

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

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

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

TEARS ON THE WIND

You were once all that was in my eyes
but girl, you left me here to drown
In this endless sea of whys

You were once all this heart was living for
but you had a double mind
I must have let love blind
just didn't see.. 
You'd be walking out my door

So many tears are on the wind
my soul cries
There must be more
one by one my tears fall to earth
They water faith
give hope new birth
that one day love will start again

My tears will dry 
time will heal what's tore
I won't care why
what happened before
Tears on the wind
will fade away
Love will start again
Yes one day

So many tears are on the wind
my soul cries
There must be more
one by one my tears fall to earth
They water faith
give hope new birth
that one day love will start again

Yes one day..
One day, love will start again!

FRIEND, A HEAVEN SENT

You are my friend..
Come show your hand
Memories we bot had
By gones still be a fad

You are my friend..
I will always understand
For you, I'll take a stand
Uncertain it maybe, no run

You are my friend...
I do not like ever to bend
Try and try we will mend
Love and care always ascend

You are my friend..
I will extend a hand
Even my life I will tend
From God, You are heaven sent

The Four Letter Word

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

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

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

For Love is beautiful, like the summer preludes!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Loosing A Child

It hurts very much,
When the one's you love,
Are ripped from your very life,
It makes you feel as if,
You are not up to being,
The person you should be,
In this dreary everyday world,
That can be so cruel.
So, think about how your life,
Is running it's very course,
And what changes you need to make'
To better your life,
In order to see the happiness,
Of keeping the beautiful thing,
You have created,
And brought into this very world,
So, you can keep this child,
Close to you in your life,
And watch it grow,
To bond with them each and everyday,
So, the child will never grow up,
knowing someone else,
As Mom and Dad,
Pushing you away from their life,
Till the day,
You will be totally gone,
From their hearts and minds,
Which is the sign of disaster all the way,
For it will be the hurt of a lifetime.

The Fear of the Lord Brings Wisdom

The Fear of the Lord Brings Wisdom!

The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom.
This is a helpful key to enter his kingdom!

This encourages a reverence
for his holy name!
Having God’s wisdom, can spare us,
 so much shame!

God loves and cares for us! 
 And listens when we pray!
Through his son Jesus, 
his love has been displayed!

He’s given to us his word,
 as a way to remind us…
We may get lost…  
But God’s love will find us!

Having a Godly fear, will nourish the soul!
Having his wisdom will help
 make us whole!

Won’t you seek the Lord?
While he may be found?
He can pick you up, when you feel
 you’re losing ground!

Come one and all! 
 All of heaven does proclaim…
Anything you need… 
 You can find in Jesus’ name!

Please, dear lord, bring your
 presence and love!
And guide us with your wisdom
 and spirit from above!

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!
I trust You!
I trust You!
Yes, yes I do!
I trust You!

Love

Love is when we cry
Love is when we laugh
Love is when we win
Love is when we lose
Love is when we shout
Love is when we're quiet
Love is when we pursue
Love is when we quit

No matter how many faces love stands for
Love will always be an illustration of life
A part of humanity that will bring out the worst or the best in us.

May We Speak the Goodness of God


May We Speak the Goodness of God!

I heard a Christian speak...  Oh, the kinds of words he was using!
Perhaps, to him, it was “entertaining and amusing.”

I couldn’t believe the profanity and cursing that came out!
Is this what the purpose of our life is all about?

The bible says; “we speak out of the abundance of our heart.”
We need to think of what we say! Before we start!

God knows that many of us stumble along the way.
We have said things that later, we knew, we shouldn’t say!

If we’re going to continually speak ungodly things.
We need to think about what, to our life,
this really brings!

Think about the influence, we have on our kids!
They listen to what we speak!   And how we live!

May the Holy Spirit bring power and conviction!
And help us to say that which brings edification!

May the word of God enrich our body and soul!
May it help us speak that which is good,
honorable and whole!

May we seek to daily bring honor to Jesus! In what we do!
May this be a commitment both for me and you!

Jesus is worthy of our lips, bringing him glory and praise!
Let’s seek to bless him! During our remaining days!

Please Jesus, anoint our tongues
with your cleansing fire!
May we speak the things of God,
as our passion and desire!

a beautiful mind,

You see me looking 
like a diamond 
shining in the sky
Let me tell you why
It's all from my light inside

I got a beautiful heart
a beautiful mind, 
beautiful thoughts

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

We got beautiful hearts
we got beautiful minds
we got beautiful thoughts 
and beautiful smiles

Jesus Has Given So Much

What Shall I Do? For the One Who Gave So Much? What shall I do? For the one who gave so much? God reached down, and blessed me, with his touch! What shall I do? To my lord who bled and died? It was for my life, that Jesus was crucified! What shall I do? To the God who truly loves me? He has made it know that he wants to be with me! What shall I do? For the many who’ve “lost their way?” Please dear Jesus… Give me the right words to say! What shall I do? As my way of, expressing my gratitude? May God help me to have a Christ’ like attitude! What will YOU do? In this time that God’s given to you? He’s here right now! And is patiently waiting for you! What will YOU do? Will you give God a chance ? Won’t you accept his salvation? Whatever the circumstance? What Christ will do… Is to do, what he does best! Simply give him your life! He’ll take care of the rest! What Christ has done…. Is to give life everlasting! Everything you need… Is right here, for the asking! By Jim Pemberton

The soul of the Crab

The soul of the crab

Oh how she hides behind that shell
Lets no one see her feelings
She’s practical in everything
But those feelings have her reeling
She’s sensitive, and hurt easy
And her moods they be so many
And yet she has not one bad bone
Malice, she has not any.

She be the one for queen and country
Digs into history
She’s always loyal to her kin
She loves her family
She’ll protect them with her life
Don’t no one touch her man!!!
She has a brilliant memory
And she’ll get you when she can.

Her mother, she loves very much
But her children more than that
Wherever there be family
That’s where she would be at
And how she loves to entertain
And cook delicious food
And always she will be a mother
In her heart will be her brood

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.

Move On

So you sinned?
Well, that's done and over with!
Keep it in the past
'Cause that's where it belongs.
But ask Jesus for forgiveness;
Don't dwell on mistakes any longer
Because He makes you new again:
Renewed.
Love is the outcome;
Forget the wrongs,
Love and move on!

Princess Fairy Tinsel

Princess Tinsel.

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

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

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

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

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

Love Is Louder

Love they say is louder than hate.
But I think that it’s a shame,
That only holds true when you have a pretty face.
Maybe I’m a disgrace,
For saying such a thing,
But think about your life and how true that *****rings.
And I cannot deny what this mirror is reflecting,
What’s standing in my way is only one thing.
It was beauty killed the beast,
In famine it will bring feast.
And sideways glances, second chances, you’ll get those at least.
But what about me?
What about us?
It’s power like money,
It drives greed,
it drives lust.
So what about you?
What can we do?
All I can hear,
The sounds that make the world disappear.
Love is louder than hate, but I can’t hear it from here.

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!

There's porn no more
For God's love is the hope of the world!

I’m going to live for him! This has already been decided! Thank you Jesus! My lord and my best friend! You’ve done so much for me! Over and over again! I praise your name!

My Notebook

Stimulating ideas pop into your head
You need a pen…you need a piece of lined paper 
It looks like you’re outtah luck…no wonder you’re drowning in dread
You need a shoulder to lie your head down for a moment’s rest… 
You need a helper…to aid you while you struggle emotionally…
I’m not trying to irritate you purposely

Try with all your might…try your best
To stay optimistic and fervent 
I believe that you’ll pass the test
Be upbeat, kindhearted and jubilant  

I appreciate the words you wrote on my notebook…
Sometimes, I feel like leftovers left on the counter…
I’m a rotten mess – you’re leaving me as if I’m an uninteresting book 
Sometimes, I feel like a coward – I don’t mean to bother…

But, you’re like no other . . .

You’re like a mat – you’re constantly stepped on…
I’m like YOUR unwanted tool – 
I stepped on you and
Pushed your buttons
I accused you of being the fool 
When, in fact, I’m the fool by your side…
You’re drifting…pushing me aside…

I’m writing words of truth though – 
Expressing how much I’m fond of you 

I esteem your presence
Glowing with glee 
At times, you do say things without thinking 
I’m the god of distress – 
You’re leaving me breathless 
Cutting me down like I’m some decaying tree
You don’t see how much you make me…
Guilty for your crimes
Taking the blame about the hundredth time 

At times, I feel that I’m awkward when I’m around you

You’re like a backpack – you carry everyone’s weight…
You’re like a sponge – soaking in our stress
I’m a distraction to you – you’re wasting valuable time…but don’t hesitate 
I’m writing words of self-centered feelings – logic doesn’t exist…
But these feelings aren’t as bad as committing a crime
These feelings come and go – I just had to confess 
I didn’t mean to screw up your progress…

Hey, if you need a few sheets of paper to right on, 
Use me like a notebook instead…and write with all your might
It seems as if you read me…like a book that drags on and on 
Use me as your tool of relaxation… and read me all night  

When you wrote those words on my notebook…
It made my day…you’re such a delight 
Like reading a fascinating, classic book

Beyond the asteroid belt

From on top of a sharp hill
My feet have molded the dirt,
oh I am wandering still 
How long does it take to fall again?
it's too late this time, I'm afraid,
The ship's already gone,
The fire from the engine is led,
The words for them never can be said,
Taunting images of the new that passed
are provoking these incredible feelings
to emerge and leave me speechless,
completely baffled.
Now I am outside of the blue Terra,
Moving with great speed but to no aim,
The ship has reached the belt 
the asteroids are plenty, enough to alarm me,
So I kept silent, one more minute,
Now I exit the danger and face the miracle,
My heart is filled with confusion, 
too many planets, to many choices,
But I know now, It took me just a second
to understand, to grasp the space,
and now I have the answer,
To Mars shall I go, if There I can fall again.

NOTHING WITHOUT YOU

drop by drop it's dripping away
time elapses like a rolling tide
fast, strong and sudden
it will shove you on left or right
above or down under
only the tide knows where
above all 
only God knows where
where is right or wrong
which one is better or worse
and He knows sure which is the best for us
faith... 
enduring selfless faith
surrendering to Him 
all fears, anxieties and tears
all that there is..
to His words that I cling..
in the wee hours that am alone
only to Him I utter the words
sometimes I can't anymore even
say the words
just the tears rolling on my cheeks
that will tell
how am I feeling inside
my insides are bursting
my thoughts are breaking
all i have are pleas
pleas that I hope soon it will be heard
soon it will be answered
I do not want to question
I do not want to even doubt
I do not even want to blame
I do not even want to curse
All I do is to hold on
Hang on.. hang on..
so tired, so tired..
long enduring nights where no one I can talk but Him
yet each day I wake up
still.. still I stand up..
resume like nothing really bothers me
I smile the brightest smile they say
but my eyes can not hide 
so many longings inside
I am trying to understand
but it seems understanding isn't enough
patience... much patience...
and really strength...
strength to hang on
strength to carry on
strength to keep fighting
but through it all
this prevails
I still love you my God
and will still be here
Thanking you 
for what you have done
and to what You will still do 
For I am forever Yours
And all of these comes from You
I am nothing without You.

Why Should I

Was it enough or was it too much?
Sometimes too fast but always too slow!
God knows that I come with these seeds that grow.
Inside and out I absorb every single touch,
But why should I?
Why should I be the only one that knows?
Stepping through time and sliding back so smooth so I go!
I say I can qualify!
Where was I and why was I there?
Sometimes too obvious but always with doubt!
God knows that I come riding in on a prayer.
I absorb every single touch inside and out,
But why should I? 
Why should I be the only one that cares?
Climbing the highest mountains and sliding down so steep but on a dare!
I say I can magnify!

What did I say and what did I do?
Sometimes too quite but always too loud!
God knows that I come with a gleam that shines so proud.
Inside and out I absorb every single touch by you.
But why should I? 
Why should I be the only one in the crowd?
Walking on water and walking backwards but at least I know how.
I say I can intensify!
Do I want to or do you need me to?
Sometimes I wonder and sometimes I simply don’t care.
God knows that I come standing on a higher sky of blue.
I absorb every single touch by you inside and out with this glare.
But why should I?
Why should I be the only one with this view?
Up in the clouds and aimless but always led by you!
I say, “I SANCTIFY”!

The Silent Lamb

The silent bell rings in the night,
Calling the devils to kneel to the light,
What once was, becomes no more,
As the light breaks through the open door.

What you think and what you feel,
What you saw and thought was real,
Is now only dust on the road,
The desolate remains of your ancient abode.

The new light is rising on the hill,
The new song is singing down in the well,
The new souls are dreaming of your face,
The new hearts are beating at you pace.

The old ideas and reasons you gave,
Are buried in the tomb and in the grave,
The rotting bone and flesh are gone,
In the morning dew, in the morning sun.

The light shines through the open door,
Casts no shadow on the old dirty floor,
The ancient laws of reason and might,
Crumble to dust in the morning light.

What once was real and certain as rock,
Is now the dream the baby forgot,
The new light coming to wake you my love,
The silent lamb and the flying dove.

Beyond The Distance And The Days

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

I have loved it all

I have loved it all

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

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

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

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

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.

more than fascination

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply fascination

MY MAN

MY MAN My man,now, I will close my starry eyes. Catch... As I'll held my hand to yours. Quench my emptiness with your heart. Each heartbeat may it etch, no depart... My man, oh how I long to be like this, All of a sudden, summer and winter collide. Bringing autumn and spring in one be nearer. nearer... nearer as you please. My man, you and me in bone-melting bliss Stars whisper bright of blooming love kiss Next to God, you're my fortress, my air, my life From darkness thorns to daylight rose, no strife My man, hold on, cling tight. Never forgo. Together, we can soar like pigeon's flights..

Two's Magic Nose

Such a nose had Ol’ Blue.
Best in south Missouri... everybody knew.
Could smell a pheasant across the plain.
Could point a covey in a hurricane.
That’s the way the legend goes.
Ol’ Blue had a “magic nose.”
 
As Blue got older, his master’s mind would drift away
To a place where he and young Blue used to play. 
In the mornings, sitting over his coffee cup
He found it sad there were no pups.
He thought it would be such a shame
If the only memory was Ol’ Blue’s name.
 
So, Jim was compelled and full of pride;
He made a search, far and wide,
To find Ol’ Blue a suitable mate.
No doubt, his offspring would be great.
It seemed likely, he supposed,
At least one pup would have his “magic nose.”
 
She was a Champion Miss from New Orleans,
A beautiful “red” named Cajun Queen.
But Blue suddenly passed away, before the pups were born.
Jim was broken hearted.  He and “Queenie” mourned.
Then came the litter, but there was only one.
Jim struggled for hope; after all, he was Ol’ Blue’s son.
 
Dappled and lanky, a handsome little cuss,
He looked just like Blue.  Jim made such a fuss.
Naming this pup would require no ado.
It was obvious.  Officially, he would be “Blue Two.”
Oh yes, these were mighty large tracks to fill.
“Can he?”, folks asked.  Jim would say, “Heck yes he will!”

So his nickname became “Two” and he seemed to be smart.
Soon it was time for his training to start.
The basics went well, but Jim’s outlook grew very dim
When, instead of pointing, Two would wag and jump and bark at him.
Oh, Two seemed to be trying; but try as he might,
He just could not seem to ever get it right.

“Blue’s son or not, he’s got to go!”
Jim found Two a “pet home” far away, in Tupelo.
On his way back, he stopped in Texarkana.
Been too long a time since he’d seen his sister Hannah.
Six days and six pounds later, he was back on his way.
Work at the farm was callin’ and he’d be drivin’ all day.
 
He thought about Ol’ Blue and wondered if and when
He’d ever have a birddog as good as Blue again.
Oh, he knew another “magic nose” was just a far off dream;
After all, it wasn’t something any man could scheme.
A “magic nose” was a gift from God, only given to a few;
And he was proud and very lucky just to have known Ol’ Blue.
 
As he turned into his drive, he broke into a smile.
“Why… I can’t believe it!  It…It must be 300 miles!”
Two was on the porch, thin and dirty; but he struck a handsome pose.
Jim ran and hugged Two hard.  “How’d you get back?  Lord only knows!”
Suddenly Jim realized; and struck with awe, he slowly rose.
A tear trickled to his smile.  “Why Two… you have a “magic nose!”
 
Two and Jim are best of friends, together everywhere.
From milkin’ cows to bedtime, Two is always there.
Jim doesn’t hunt much anymore, now Two’s a rescue dog.
Just last month, he saved a little girl lost in Cooley’s Bog.
Jim struts and tells proud, heroic stories;
While Two wags and jumps and barks, and shares his glory.
 
Jim boasts, “Like father, like son!”, then speaks fondly of Blue;
But all know the largest tracks to fill are those of Two.
His deeds are known far and wide,
And fill Jim’s heart with love and pride.
For with every rescue, the legend grows;
About a dog named Two, and his “magic nose.”

LOVE FOREVER FADES AWAY Leave you my tears

 LOVE FOREVER FADES AWAY!!!!   wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

Waving like the sea,
Your decision was bias.
You ought to give me wedding ring,
But set my dreams on fire.

Can you answer me for the single reason, what made you do this?
Was it the beauty? Was it the caste, or the complexion?

You said I am your love at first sight.
You were the one who took the initiative and intended to keep it up.
You were the one who delightedly filled my heart with zeal of love.
You were the one who elegantly filled the warmth of love in my soul.

Confronted with an unsolvable dilemma’s where there is no right answer, we always know the answer to everything.
But what you did? You just made false promises.
Still you define it as the love, true love?
Or the love that vanished with no reason.
Answer me, answer me, my thee??

Near the bandra reclamation,
Sitting at the amusement park,
You were the one who excitedly expressed your thirsty feelings.
You were the one who stared at me without closing your eyes for a single second.
But you were the one who set my dreams on fire.

You said you will ask your parent’s for lifetime commitment?
But I will ask you one thing, if you feel your parents will understand and decide your love,  then why you fell in love?
If you know that story wont line up with an happy ending, then what made you do this?
It’s just the pain you mounted on my heart. You just broke my heart.

When you blamed, that it’s the caste, it hurted me like hell.
Answer me my love, what made you do this?
I was happy being single.
Then, why you disturbed my life with no reason?
Then, why I got so much acquainted with you for all season?

It’s was so easy, that you picked up different slices of life but why Castism you did my almighty?
In the bruising darkness just left with ashes of memories, lying my face down in ignorance.
You broke my trust for all the life time in my way.
But still you left the happy prints, as a hope of ray.
It’s because of you, Love forever fades away.
But still left with the mementoes of yours, reminded me every day!!

I lay sleeping

I lay sleeping with eyes wide open,
I lay sleeping with dreams that have no meaning,
I lay sleeping with nothing to dream about.
I lay sleeping with no care and sleep with eyes blind,
I lay sleeping, there with my eyes wide open.

Seeing the dark change from dark to black.
There is no moon, there is no sky
just purple strokes of paint in the sky.
Take that morning dew smell and close your blind eyes.
Smell the morning, that smell that clicks in your mind.
The smell of childhood dreams,
that as an adult never came true.
Sleeping bare in the nude with your eyes wide open.
Thinking of her, as she is five thousand miles away from you.
Wanting to love and hold her, but no use in crying.
Sleeping their with blind eyes in the dark that dances in the light.

Your lamplight turned down low,
as life trickeles down in its nightgown and yawns for sweet slumber.
Tired from longs days, and sometimes long nights,
wanting to curel in bed and close its blind eyes.
Dusk will soon peek its head through the blinds
and awake life to a new dawn.
She sleeps in the morning, and walks at night.
When he sleeps at night, and walks with a bare nude heart in the morning.

Life climbs over yellow mountains,
and meets her fellow compainion
a handsome fellow with broud shoulders and blessed with an ego
as I sleep there with my eyes wide open.
As I sleep with my eyes blind to what life has intented for me,
and as I raise to walk the lone streets at the break of the dew covered lawn
at the first sweet smells of dawn,
I can see life go on with the handsome man
and I blind and wanting to go to bed.

I dream of dreams that have no meaning
Gardens of cluelessness and raging emotions
tare me down and I am confused on which way to go.
Do I stay here and dream away, blind and half awake
as life slaps me across my broad cheek?
Or shall I walk on with life hand and hand
and regain my vision of the world,
Start to sleep with dreams that make sense
and dreams that are made of gold and have no end?
Dream of fancy dreams that show love and happy endings
I would love that, and I would love to walk with life,
but she is out of my leauge.

And my bed is so cozy and I feel like sleeping.
So I shall sleep on more restless night chashing life down.
I lay sleeping with my eyes wide open.
I lay sleeping with dreams that have no meaning.
I lay sleeping waiting for life to come back from the mountains
and lay beside me.
I lay sleeping with hope of regaining hope and salvage
what is left of my spirit at hand.

The darkness returns to gray your once blue sky

The sky opens and rains your tears
Your heart is broken from all your fears
Your mind is clouded and there is no sun
You ponder perfection but I’m not the one

You search your soul to write your life’s story
But you cannot find the words as you sit and worry
A flash of love inspiration blinds your spiritual eye
But the darkness returns to gray your once blue sky

Pictures of hope adorn your world’s dreary scene
The white future is now all but a shattered black dream
You swim in the ocean of black sadness and pain
Clinging to the normality of being insane

You search your soul to write your life’s story
But you cannot find the words as you sit and worry
A flash of love inspiration blinds your spiritual eye
But the darkness returns to gray your once blue sky

An umbrella of lies covers your once true head
You wander from the path and with others often misled
You contemplate the journey you hold in your hand
Your heart and life are your own and only yours to command

You search your soul to write your life’s story
But you cannot find the words as you sit and worry
A flash of love inspiration blinds your spiritual eye
But the darkness returns to gray your once blue sky

Come and take my hand.

Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

-Yours Truly

SIMPLY ME

My nails are plainly white
My face with make-up but light
My hair fixed on simple align
My clothes on comfortable flight

Not that I don't care to fix
Nor do I want to match and mix
It's because It's not in me to impress
"Suitable to occasion", that's how I dress

Though, lots have said I'm a beauty
I thank but still be in simplicity
I want to be liked just the way I am
Anyhow, I'm flexible enough to change

Opening myself to suggestions
Criticisms even I take to attention
Remembering this, I do manage
Putting myself right or above average...

FLYING HOME TO YOU

Flying home to you
Girl, I miss your touch
It's been way too long
Need you so much
My arms don't know 
What they're supposed to do
Just hanging around
Waiting to hold you
My lips only making words
Soon they'll be tasting sweet
When we're together
They'll be feeling heat
In your lover's mind
Oh yeah, burning in his heart
He's already there
Soulmate's never really part
Flying home to you
Living on cloud nine
Oh, your breath gives me wings
Just knowing your mine
Flying home to you 
I'm coming,
I'm coming,
Coming home to you!

Defined by Love

The way you feel
about me doesn't
define me. You will
not cause me to
re-think my
priorities or
examine my virtues.
You may love, like,
hate or be neutral
towards me, that is
your prerogative. Of
course I would
prefer to be looked
upon as good,
inspiring, or any of
the positive human
characteristics we
know of... but it's
not essential to me
if I am not. I
respect your opinion
either way. More
importantly, I
respect mine. In my
eyes I AM worthy of
love, friendship,
forgiveness,
empathy,
understanding,
praise, blessings,
God's Love and love
for myself and I can
only hope for
"genuine" to precede
all of these words
and their meaning. I
understand that
these things I need
in my life, and they
are also the essence
of me, my gift to
those who really
know me and love me,
who truly desire to
be a part me, not
just tolerate me or
see an opportunity
for achievement at
my expense. I have
come this far on a
road paved of my
blood, sweat and
tears and the
admission of my
faults that made it
so. Many lessons I
learned were harsh
but I managed to
proceed in the right
direction and it was
I who suffered and
bowed my head with
shame and it was I
who rose, anew,
forgiving and
forgiven, humbled
and eager to forge
ahead. And the few
that were with me
all the while, will
forever be a part of
me, we are one and I
acknowledge I would
not be where I am,
who I am this day,
without you. And I
will always love
you. It is my
ambition and honor
to give to you the
same beautiful,
selfless gift. I
walk with God, in
good company of
those that chose to
walk with me in this
amazing life's
journey. And that,
is all I need to
know as to what
defines me, as a
person, a blessed,
cherished soul,
grateful for every
single moment.

The Truth About Love

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

I Am A Man

I am a man
Who once stood upon the top of his mountain
I am a man
Who had everything he could ever ask for
I am a man
Who held his whole world in his hands
I am a man
Who through his own stupidity crushed it all to dust
I am a man
Who has lost his daughter
I am a man
Who lost his dear wife
I am a man
Who has lost his family
I am a man
Who's whole world collapsed, was turned upside down, torn apart and scattered like the dust he created
BUT I AM A MAN
Who today stands stronger for it
I am a man
Who through it all started walking down the road to freedom
I am a that man
Who may have forgotten to wear shoes
But I am that man
Who with every bridge he crossed, struck a match, and watched that bridge 
burn to ash
I am a man
Who took his bull by the horns
And SNAPPED THOSE ****ERS OFF!!!
I am a man
Who today stands stronger then any oak tree you will ever find
I am a man
Who has been to hell and back
I created hell myself
AND I HAVE SURVIVED
I am a man
I am a man
I am a man
Who is stronger for it.....

TO THE HEART

Heart...
I feel you beating thready and weak..
I feel you murmuring me to stop..
I feel you throbbing softly aghast..

Heart...
Why did we trust and give in so fast?
We should have guessed things doesn't last..
We should have been careful for things casts..

Heart...
Will you get some more little rest..
So long, I do not like you again be on test..
I do not like you more on mess...

Heart...
Follow me, I'm above you..
I know which one is better for you..
I learned from past and present blues..
Indeed, I'm knowledgeable enough for the cues..

Heart..
I speak kindly to you..
Kindly mind me once..
This the mind pleading and speaking...

I Know of An Old Fashioned Family


There’s a family I know,  that may seem old fashioned.
But they serve others from a heart of compassion!

They don’t have much in the scope
 of entertainment.
But they have each other,
 and much contentment.

They have a love for God that comes from within!
And are thankful to the Lord
 for being their friend!

They don’t get too involved with that the world brings.
They have each others love.  
They have everything!

This family has been an inspiration to others too!
By their giving hearts, in much of what they do!

This family has a commitment to serve God above.
And have asked Jesus to fill them with his love!

This may seem old fashioned, 
not to have a lot of things…
But they know their Lord 
and the love that he brings!

I’m thankful to know them and their Godly inspiration…
I extend to them a heart of thanks  and appreciation!

Please dear Lord, bless and keep them in your arms!
Be with them Jesus, and protect them from harm!

May the blessings of God keep 
flowing through them!
And may the peace and joy of God continue to be with them!

Overcome

I picked up a penny face-down,
But I don't believe in luck.
Everything happens for a reason;
God's mercy frees the stuck.
Redeem me, Heavenly Father;
Please, I know the wrong I've done.
Thank You for dying for me;
My sins You have overcome!

Grey Bird

On that cloudy weekend in June 
I hear a soft and graceful tune 
from the grey bird on the tree 
branch 
Singing sweet lullabies felt 
blessed in the moment 
My body tingles of joy at sight 
Gazing out through 
my open door,
Letting thoughts fly free
Releasing love out into the horizon 
Heart filled with emotion came 
over me 
Grey bird stood playing its tune 
for awhile and on the wings of 
letting go
Then as the rain fell from the 
sky the grey bird flew away 
gracefully 
I blew a kiss to the clouds and 
utterd these simple words of I 
Love You father ( who's now in 
heaven ) and yet I hope to hear 
that grey bird sing again once 
more for me 
Farewell, love your son

Heartbreak

He wants to say "I love you,"
But keeps it to "Goodnight."
Because love would mean some falling,
and she's afraid of heights.

My Brother Needed Prayer

My brother came to me, desperate for prayer! Filled with hopelessness and despair! I reached out to him to begin to pray… But I couldn’t find any words to say! The Holy Spirit began tugging at my heart within… Convicting me of holding on to a “secret sin.” THIS SIN, God told me I must first let go, For this was eating at my soul! My prayer life had been such a mess! I repented! And to God… I confessed! I called out to Jesus’ precious name! Inviting him into my heart to reign! On bended knees before my Lord I began to bow, My prayer was going to be answered… Somehow! The prayer request for my brother Was going to be met! For God has never failed me YET! By Jim Pemberton

Where Will I Be Tomorrow

Where Will I Be Tomorrow? Where will I be tomorrow? That’s my question! I continue traveling on… Seeking my life's "mission." There are many roads, and journeys to go on. I’m trying to find out, where I really belong. There are many choices of what to do and see… There's both good and bad waiting for me! But, there is a God who called out my name. When I heard his voice... To him, I came! He gave me a promise! A 100% guarantee! He promised to forgive my sins, that I may be free! I will spend today and tomorrow with him! I’m going to take time, and get to know him! I'm here today! I don't know what tomorrow will bring! But I can trust Jesus! To take care of everything! Where will I go? I know where I will be! Spending time with my Lord! For eternity! By Jim Pemberton

Lady Una and the Lion

Walking in the meadow of life on that summer day


Where she always loved to be at Una  walked along the steady stream 
As she picked up the white Lilly flower and put upon her hair of gold (princess of love)

And the daughter of a dander king
Una suddenly turned her head to the old orchard tree and begun to sing roman lullabies of joy

With tears of affection shed for the god who lives above the skies
At that moment she gazed back to the stream 
And there the lion stood so tall just like a king eyes wide looked to una 
As she went toward the mighty lion he went to her and utter'd thee words 
 I am a creature of pride with nothing to hide I am pure of heart true of courage with a mask of savage a mane gold as our hearts-

She became very happy and intrigued 
As she laid her gentle hands on upon the lion she spoke these words 
  -I love thee lion and by sun and moon I love thee freely as men strive for right;
I love thee purely in my old griefs and childhood's faith 

There a tiny lamb appears right next to her and the lion 
So small and graceful like a gift from god above 
The tiny lamb followed them further into the enchanted meadow sky as crystal blue and the wind is calm they drifted off strung into the world
To bring new love joy and courage to the world and spread good faith

A Friend of Mine Asked Me

A friend of mine asked me 
"How do you meet a man I'm lonely"
I told her "you can meet a man anywhere"
"you can meet him in the library"

"you can meet him at a bus stop"
She meet a man at a bus stop
within a week he had her facing court
a passenger in a stolen can 

The next time a friend of mine asks
I'm going to say you can meet a man
at university in a school as you learn
you meet a man that's also learning

You can meet a man
with dreams of building a career
follow the path to your career
and you'll meet a man on the road.

A HERO FOR YOU

If there's a chance, 
Can we have this dance?

I will take a life's race, 
will you come with me to face?

Tears flowered to my eyes,
save my soul,
will you do?

Don't tremble or fumble, 
as I touch your lips
Yet express joy, 
as I joke and play on gyst

Hero, that I want to be for you
Crashing all your hurts and pains

Be by your side, forever be
Vowing to be only yours, 
Only yours...

But would you consider me?
Will you take me as well?

A lie 
Never ever will you tell
"Only us", that you will swear?

It use to be me

It use to be me
who lit up your eyes
It use to be me
Who told you goodnight
It use to be me
Who asked you to stay
And lay here beside me
Till I drift away
But now there's another 
Whose heart that you need
Who only needs grandma 
To comfort his weeps

It use to be me
Now, a son that's too old
To walk with your hand
When I feel all alone
It use to be me
Who ran to your arms
Now another has comfort
Safe from all harm
From a son I am grateful
What you've given my child
But it use to be me
Who brought you a smile
So I hope he remembers
What these memories mean
That it use to be me
But time never sleeps

A Dedication to my Darling Mystic

Dedicated to my darling Mystic Rose...


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Shall Have To Cross The Darkness Alone

(Dedicated to my wife and children. My sincere apologies for my failures and short-comings)

As the closing of the day is nearing
I ponder the things I could have done
Picking each if I had been erring
Or had I done for purpose or for fun.

If a work that is fully accomplished
Have its merits subjected to envy
I shall gladly share my precious harvest
To help a fellow make his day.

For I couldn’t have it in my conscience
The slight guilt of being fortunate
That in the middle of my convenience
Someone has a hard time for something to get.

If by chance or valid reason
I could get a better share
For the sake of life’s old lesson
I shall give up to be fair.

That in life there are some choices
Often hard for me to make
And as the sun won’t stall in one place
With mine haste I could have mistake.

Then sooner may come chaos
By a wrong step my heart be spoiled
Can’t help but being anxious
That I might sacrifice my toil.

Albeit, let there be no one
To bear with me of my pain
Even the closest someone
Who’s been with me thru the rain.

When the nightfall finally takes over
Cancelling reasons for me to be around
Let my love stays where there is flicker
I shall have to cross the darkness alone.

3:45pm – 4:20pm

I've been irregular to my shop for the past several days as I had been preoccupied with various endeavors that might help augment my present business. All those constraints and pressures were not so much of a problem to me in spite of the fatigue; in fact, challenging and intellectually stimulating. What bothers me is the pain and discomfort I could hear from the love ones around me that if only I have the resources to shoulder their needs and the chance to bear the agony for their stead then I would. Such trouble led me to the writing of this poem.

I Was In A Place That I Didn't Belong

I Was In A Place Where I Didn’t Belong!

I was in a place where I knew I didn’t belong!
God’s spirit was there…  But the flesh was strong!

I felt alluring voices almost “overwhelm me.”
There were so many temptations that surrounded me!

I could feel the pull!  The tugging of my heart!
I knew this was going to happen! From the start!

As I began to feel many voices, pulling my spirit.
I wanted to run, but could not seem to do it!

In one moment of hopelessness, to Jesus I cried!
I couldn’t run from this!  No matter how hard I tried!

Just when I thought that there was not a way out!
I remember what some of the Bible was about!

I knew that if I cried to Jesus, he’d be there to help me!
No matter the temptation!  And how it tries to “trip” me!

Before I was going to do something, I shouldn’t do…
I heard God’s voice say; “My son, I’m here to help you!”

I felt the hand of God, reach down and touch my soul!
I knew that God was there, and it was time for me to go!

I jumped up and out of there, as fast as I could run!
Any “excitement” was gone.  I was not having “fun!”

Whatever temptation I gave up, was worth avoiding!
A life with Jesus and family is what I’m enjoying!

Thank you my Lord! For your patience and kindness!
You’ve filled my life with your love and brightness!09/04/13

Every Second We're Away

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

My Brother Needs Prayer

I Have A Brother That Needs Prayer!

I have a brother that really needs prayer!
When it comes to God, he doesn’t care!

He’s living a life by his own set of rules.
And thinks Christians are a bunch of “fools.”

The only thing that seems important to him…
Are the things in life that are close to him.

Wandering down a path that he chooses…
The one he’s chosen… It’s him that looses!

Please, dear Jesus, keep him in your care!
Wherever he goes…  I know you are there!

You are the one that my brother needs to come to!
No matter the false “dreams” he may run into!

Please dear Lord…  Protect from all harm!
May he seek the strength of your loving arms!

May your voice beckon the master’s call!
He really does need YOU after all!

Cure Mine of The Dark

You’ll write a beautiful melody,
If it’s truly from the heart.
So first I’ll find the remedy,
To cure mine of the dark.
But holy light and blind eyes,
Are keeping me apart,
From the answers, to the questions,
that are making things so hard.

Find me a sin,
You think that I wouldn’t commit.
And use it to begin,
To make me laugh again. 
Find me a loose end,
I don’t know how to tie.
Sometimes I wish for the truth,
But all I get are lies. 

I don’t need the good life,
I just want a sliver.
You say always go for gold but I,
I’m fine with a lining that’s silver.
I can live with a just a hand to hold,
But who could love a sinner?
Maybe I can hide inside the dark,
So turn the lights down dimmer. 

I said find me a sin,
You think that I wouldn’t commit.
And use it to begin,
To make me laugh again. 
Find me a loose end,
I don’t know how to tie.
Sometimes I wish for the truth,
But all I get are lies.

I need a Girl

They say confessional poetry is repressed sexuality, I believe it don’t you?

 I’m a man who puts sanctions on his mind, and chains around my soul, wall's surrounding my own heart. 

It has been so long since my bare skin has felt the bare skin of a girl, so long, that I do not want to even begin to imagine when,

Was the last time I locked lips with a girl, held her hand, or stroked her willing hair with my eager hands,
 
Oh how long it has been.

I’m an idealistic guy who chooses to shut myself into this sanctuary, my own isolation.
A man who tortures his own heart, with a soul that screams and a mind that is close to falling apart.

Infected by rumination.
Imagination suffocated by expectation.
Lofty goals and desperate attempts to achieve some jaded sense of moral fulfillment. 
Any meager milestone that will put this ambition to rest, motivated by stress, obligations, and promises best left repressed.

So hopeful a dreamer who, like a young child I reach to the sky, stand tall for a little while then take an all too familiar slide into depression, 
A self-created, self-directed, self-manufactured tragedy.
But self-determined to feed this wild ambition, this reservoir of fire.
An energy so shockingly, so alarmingly evident in everything I do, so competitive, so confrontational, so controversial, all I want is to be conversational. 
I don’t blame the world for my troubles, we all have burdens to bear, crosses to carry, thoughts that vary.

We choose to be positive or cynical, an optimist, a motivator or a pessimist, to be inspired, to be admired, to receive respect, to let go of regrets.
To love, and to be loved, to be touched and not resist, to give in but not up our inhibitions, to just be freely in this moment, if only for a moment, to let our bodies dance.
To not be critical of romance, to have peace with this world, if only for a day, then today is the day,

That I need a Girl.

LIBERTY

Today in New York's harbor 
I saw a majestic lady 
With her torch raised for all to see
The millions who've seen her 
Know she stands for 
Not what is but what can be

Passed Ellis Island on a dreamer's ferry 
When an old friend walked up to me
A heart's hope question 
Life's in the daring 
Climb the mountain 
Live to be free

People lost and hiding 
Energy spent disguising 
Seemingly progressing 
But it's just fantasy 
Existing not living 
Longing but not loving

But it can all change 
That's my hope 
That's my heart 
That's my.. Statue of Liberty!

I'm Coming Out And Am Proud Of It

There are proud people “coming out!” Yet, they have no idea what real life is about! Many brag about a lifestyle that’s revealing. Yet have lost God’s purpose and meaning! I’m coming out for Jesus! I’ve nothing to hide! I’ve asked him to take away my sin and pride! Of my own accomplishments... I’ve nothing to boast! But I’m proud of God the father, son and holy ghost! Whatever pride we have… We’ve all sinned! Jesus told us; “you must be born again!” Nothing that I’ve done is worth “bragging of.” Rather, I’ve done things that I’m ashamed of! But God reached down to where I was standing! And filled my life with his peace and understanding! The more I have of Jesus, the less I need of me! His power alone is what can truly set me free! I’m coming out for Jesus! The redeemer of my soul! I’m going to shout it! So the whole world may know! I’m not ashamed of Jesus! I am NOT! By his mercy… My sins have been blood bought! For each step you take to God… He takes two! Won’t you allow him to do his work through YOU? A life of righteousness and holiness is what God is asking! Come now! And receive HIS life! It’s everlasting! By Jim Pemberton

PRICELESS LOVE

It isn't something bought
However, it is something fought
It isn't a played as a joke
But it's sometimes broke

It isn't done by many
However, lots of persons go on heady
It isn't solely on one place or person
Appreciated anywhere; both man and woman

You love thee
I love thee
We all love thee

Much gone crazy 
But few gets lazy
As true love they say a fancy
Thus, it's always on frequency

Love like the dove
As it symbolizes peace above
Never ever show a doubt
As trust, be thy have

This Is The Love

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

Looking Down From 41 Above

Looking down from 41 above,
I only wish I was below.
The sights and sounds so clear to see
Glitz as white as snow.
The lights are distant to the mountains
And the cabs travel around.
The brightest city in the world
Beams into the heart of this little town.
God please give me the grace to see
You are all I need.

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you 'til the ends of the earth
   to the bottom of my heart..
From minute dusts, I adjust
   forming you with my own bear hands
Appointing you to be on high command
   over animals, plants and all others I planned

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I trust you much I let you run and roam
  I got upset you chose lure than obedience
But, I love you so so much that I am still here
   a father waiting for you to come home
Arms spread wide ready to embrace you tight
  Aching to show you more of my love and light

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I know you have been on trash or myriad tests
  to which sometimes you're on bended knee with tears 
Asking; Swearing; Doubting me when bad surprises
  cascade soak then thoroughly bathe you...
Don't you know that while you are in this...
  
I am listening to your shake and tremble
   I am there next to you, sobbing too..
I am hoping for you to remember ME.
   I am hoping for you to call my name.
As I am eager, so eager, to share your burden
   I am ardent, so ardent, to make you smile.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you much that if needed I will sacrifice
 With all I am, I will draw you nearer to me
Not with golden armory of might or power
 but with the Spirit, I have sent to be with you
to remind you that I am here, always with you.
 Just don't you forget to seek me and my Words.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You are the best

Much have I seen;
Much have I still to see
In terms of beauty
Especially the feminine beauty;
BUT in terms of your degree
I have never, really ever seen.

Your eyes are as sparkling as pearl
your lips as soft and succullent as shakepeare’s juliet
your eyes as charming as a fairy’s
your voice as metallic and soft as a nightingale’s
and your beauty as hypnotising as medusa’s eyes.

An inexplicable sensation has touched my core
and ablaze, my heart is now on,
because of such mesmerising beauty.
my heart desires your heart
to show the kindred souls that
for all times, you are mine.

When I look at your lips,
Coupled with those hips,
I longed to be hint if indeed am the one holding,
And kissings such succulent lips,

I like everything about you
I admire you
But most of all, I love you
because
YOU ARE THE BEST,

HELP HER UP

written 2nd Aug 2013



This life is not as it should be
 pick up your wife, can't you see 

You're her husband, stand up!
 give her a reason, to again believe

She means 'everything'....to this family
 shutting the door leaving her totally... Alone

Do you actually know her at all...
 damaging her heart and soul, deep within it's cold

Loneliness consumes her, it's been so long
 it must be asked...do you still love her?

Are you willing to help her to her feet again?
 or shall you sit back and watch, as she see's the end

This is completely left for only you, her husband to declare
 how much does she really mean to you...do you still care?

Will you step up, or let her rot into total depression, you see it...
 Love and care, or death and dispirit

It's all up to you!
 Her loving husband, what will you do.....

A Love Letter

A love letter,
so full of words,
so full of beauty.

A love letter,
me reading alone on a park bench,
while I form tears in my dry eyes.

A love letter,
which takes me to a place,
of peace and brings joy to me.

A love letter,
that has no boundaries,
that shows a stranger's true feelings.

A love letter,
taken words put together,
to read a poem of glorious beauty.

A love letter,
that shows that someone loves you,
and it brings a smile on my face.

I go on home,
sit at my desk,
look at the sweet love letter
marked with a red kiss.

A named penned in curseve,
The "I" is dotted with a heart,
makes my heart leap from the chest.

I sit there,
light a cigarette and stare at an empty page
from a lonesome notebook.

I pick up my pen,
and I transfer all my emotions onto the paper,
to create love and art to show my love in return.

Then I shall go to a simple, but beautiful garden
and pick two roses that have already picked themselves,
and take them to the creator of this love letter.

A love letter,
so strong with words put together,
expressing true emotion.

A love letter,
so strong in its own world,
it brings strangers together and makes them love forever.

A love letter,
so sweet and so divine,
that any man prays for a love letter to appear on his doorstep.

A love letter,
beauty and harmony,
that brings people closer togther.

My Love Intended

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love everlasting,
everything everlasting,
cigarettes smoked together.

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

The God That I DO Believe In

The God That I DO Believe In!

There’s a God that I really DO believe in!
I knew this the moment I received him!

This is the God whom I hold special and dear!
He’s always with me!  Always near!

He’s the God of the glory of heaven above!
He’s also the God who’s given us his love!

He’s the God who doesn’t
 want anyone to go to hell!
His son gave his life! 
 So your soul can be well!

I’ve given him my life with a renewed commitment!
He’s brought to me peace
 and a godly contentment!

He’s God!  And can’t be ruled
 by someone’s theology!
He can’t be explained by science or biology!

He’s given us his word for a godly inspiration!
Let’s not twist it, into our own “interpretation!”

He’s alive and powerful! 
 Let the whole earth proclaim!
The majestic wonder and glory,
 there is in HIS name!

Jesus is alive today!  He reigns in resurrection power!
You too can know him! 
 And be changed this very hour!

The God that I believe in,
 can be your God too!
He’s done his part!  The rest is up to YOU!

The Beauty Within

The Beauty Within When a heart is kind Goodness seeps into your mind Peacefulness flows all about As the inner beauty turns inside out When the kindness of the heart is given Energy flows with life worth living All living life comes from the Lord His inner beauty keeps us in accord That glorious beauty of nature Shows God’s kind heart so pure The beauty is an unspoken love That comes from our Lord above When we begin to focus On God’s beauty all around us A sense of peace will slowly start As you feel the goodness of God’s heart It is all the glory of the Lord’s Gracious beauty of His innards Kindness begets kindness like a friend Pouring out all the beauty from within Not everyone can see inner beauty As we all look at others differently Only within the eyes of the beholder Will the true beauty begin to smolder A person is not seen by their outer shell That’s how I see it as far as I can tell A bitter heart that deceives like a crook Appears ugly no matter how great you look Let your heart be kind and always shine Your inner beauty all of the time!

Am I Really Happy

Am I Really Happy?

With everything I’ve acquired and got...
What kind of happiness has it brought?

With everything I have or can name...
Has it given me joy or brought me shame?

With all that this world can give me…
What kind of life “lies beneath me?”

With all of my possessions and wealth…
Do I have contentment and “true” wealth?

I want it to be known and wish to express…
I’m not so sure, I’m what you would call “blessed.”

There’s something I know to be certain.
Tomorrow could be life’s “final curtain.”

There’s something that’s been on my mind.
Have I given God just some of “my” time?

There’s one thing I’m going to do… And do it now!
I’m going to come to the Lord and humbly bow.

This is something I need to say and do...
Give it all to God!  And tell him;
 “I LOVE YOU!”

Something that I should have done already...
When Christ comes again…  I want to be ready!

God’s joy and happiness is true and very real!
The presence of God..,   I can already feel!

What God has given to me, no one can take away!
For he comforts me and is with me every day!

Stuck In The Struggle

Sometimes I get stuck in the struggle
And I forget that this life is real,
Full of real love,
Full of real people,
Full of real strength,
Full of real faith.
Look around
Because this is real.
Welcome to reality;
This is God's amazing life!

Instruments of Love

I recite your name in              the whispers of the wind
for bonded to my heart          are you until the  end
I lifted the chalice                   drank deeply of its wine
I felt of its effects                    the fullness of divine

Like the chords of piano        and dulcimers delight
your melodies do waft            through every thought at night
a master plays the chords     a violin with strings
plays my heart like a harp     whose music on it rings

Your fingers play me like       the stroke of piano keys
every touch I enjoy                your heart it aims to please
you are a symphony              whose chords have touched my heart
a birth cries transmission       of transformation every part

Songs like an aria                  may yet I learn to sing
whose vocals resonate          the inmost of my being
You left no line untouched     no strand is mine alone
made sure you did I knew      would make you me your own
 
Somewhere I lost myself        I gave it all to you
things I don't understand       reasons appear askew
I inhale you my breathe         to deepest parts within
need you to embrace me      as close as your own skin

We retire together                 speak 'neath the baleful skies
of every trial in life                 and those who live in lies
greet me in the morning        curl around me at night
sing to me of love songs       of futures very bright
 
The wedding of my heart      tears away my mind
I want to    forever                 hold you for all of time
Are not your words a bath     that removes the worlds dirt
a balm of medicine                to heal the deepest hurt

Its surpassing sweetness      a palate of good taste
love so intoxicating                no drop will go to waste
the adversary's here             and tramples the flowers
but you oh my beloved          too freely roam my hours

My life is but a breath           an instrument of song
music tells the stories           of lives and right and wrong
The scent of yesterdays       the pathways of the past
forward now the future          into the everlast

Proverbs 16
24 Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

FAR THROUGH TIMES

FAR THROUGH TIMES

Moving on
Moving far
Far from pain
Far from you
You pierced my heart
You tore apart
Apart it cry
Apart it bleed
Bleed profusely
Bleed until no more
More to forego
More to arise
Arise living life again
Arise laughing loud again
Again a blossom prime
Again a healthy rhyme
Rhyme magnets warmth
Rhyme striking hearts
Hearts of diamonds
Hearts of fire
Fire dance
Fire hope
Hope ablaze
Hope endless
Endless thoughts
Endless actions
Actions moving man
Actions moving souls
Souls light
Souls blessed
Blessed by love
Blessed of joy
Joy for the world
Joy to the world
World growth
World change
Change views

Never gets old
Never runs from battle
Battle everyday
Battle of all
All walks of life
All through times
Times writing history
Times with victory

NOW OR NEVER


I am small never been tall..
I take risk but i scare to fall..
I put my heart as well as my soul..
Ultimately and completely my all...

They said i have a big amazing heart..
What they don't know it's only like a quart..
I love the character and the art..
These all that i always regard..

Hugs and kisses are for free..
These are simple gestures, for free..
I do not want nor need any fee..
Wholeheartedly, i'll be doing it with glee..

I give as much as i can give...
I love as much as i can love..
All i know is that i have only one life to live...
Whatever, i desire to do i will now...

For if i may not do it now...
There might come a time..
I will regret why i did not do...

TRUE LOVE, HE CAN'T HAVE

Awesome looks
Prosperous life
Professional job
Witty wise brains

Architectural home
Branded new car
Fashionable clothes
Elegant jewelry

Richness beyond average
Power beyond leverage
Authority beyond reach
High fallooting overall

All he can imagine
All he can buy
All he can have
All he can have

Yet, What he didn't know?
True love isn't a coy toy
Anywhere, I will bow
This will be before and now

The Corner of Madison and Huron

At the corner of Madison and Huron,
The faint pedestrian appears.
A couple holding hands walking swiftly
As police pass near.
Cane in his hands
Walks a younger looking man,
Rolling his suitcase along
A central corner in a downtown city
Where faith, hope, and love belong.
May God bless you Toledo,
Today and forevermore.

JOURNEY ONWARDS

Tiny bits of beauty
I seem to florish
Showered acts of piety
I am mold and polished

Experience I have enough
Gosh! How it teach me allot
Even life is that so tough
Still it didn't stop me to laugh

Here in this arid land
I learned things beyond
Things I was once never do
Here to keep up, I need too

Indeed it's been a great journey..
There are so many worries
So much so are the stories
Then again it is a part of my life history

I'm looking forward
Determined always to move onward
With one foot step affront
I am more prepared for a staunt..

GENUINE PINOY

7,100 islands, you are made up..
Pearl of the orient seas, that's how you are..
Cradle of four civilization, historians says..
Only Christian nation, even they speak..

Abounded with vast green forests..
Surrounded by shallow to deep trenches...
Choose wether to white and black sands of beaches..
Each island is an enticement...

Every province has it's own native delicacy...
Each one is known for its festival felicity..
Poor as it may seem yet great in hospitality..
Enabling each tourist to feel welcome in grandiosity...

Look around, you will see a smile..
Scattered genuine friendship in mile..
Wether you are black, white or yellow skin..
They don't care as long as you're clean...

Clever and intelligent...
Creative and truly magnificent..
Small probably by height..
Yet, if known you'll be full in sight..

God fearing - spirited by nature..
Responsible enough for the future..
Families implants love to nurture..
Obviously seen in each Filipino creature...

I Knew Someone Who Wanted to End It All

I Knew Someone Who Was Ready to “End It All!” I knew of someone who just wanted “to end it.” Giving up on life, and did not want to “defend it.” It was a heart wrenching and difficult situation. He said what he wanted to, with no explanation! I could see his face and the sad look in his eyes! What he was going to do next, was anyone’s surprise. He turned to drugs and encountered addictions. With this brought much disease and afflictions! He gave up on the wonderful family that was given. And turned to a pretty wild and crazy way of livin’! I told him about a God who loves him very deeply. As he listened, he began to grow restless and weary. I reached for his hand and began to pray for God’s power! It was a miracle! The blood of Jesus changed him that hour! The spirit of God brought healing and hope to his body! He was so excited! He rushed out to tell everybody! The “end” that he wanted, seemed to just fade away! For the son of the living God, changed him this day! The glory of God, and the power of Jesus’ resurrection… Changed him! And got him going in a NEW direction! He’s so thankful for the blood of Christ’ atonement! And is a different person now, because of that moment! This same Jesus loves and can do the same for YOU! Through the problems of life… He will see you through! By Jim Pemberton

Jesus Chose Me to Follow HIM

Jesus Chose Me to Follow Him!

Jesus chose me to follow him!
And called me to be;
"a fisher of men!"

He's given me his Holy Spirit,
for needed assistance.
He wants me to reach the lost,
with a Godly persistence!

Others need to know
of the forgiveness he brings!
They need to know that he
can do anything!

They can be transformed,
by his resurrection power!
This can happen to anyone!
This very hour!

Please help me dear Lord,
to do my very best!
I want to do my part!  And let you
take care of the rest!

It's only in YOU, Jesus, that one
 can find life everlasting!
It's freely given!
Just for the asking!

Please dear Lord... 
Come and direct my path.
I need your mercy!  And spare me
from your wrath!

Please guide me, by your loving
and gentle hand…
Help me to obey, listen,
and understand!

Following and trusting Jesus
is the best thing I can do!
To surrender my life,
and daily follow YOU!

I Noticed the Words Jesus Loves You above Your Door

I Noticed; “Jesus Loves You,” Above Your Door!

I noticed a sign, “Jesus Loves You,”
 above your front door.
I want to know about him!
I want to know more!

Could you tell me without 
any hesitation...
About Jesus and his plan 
of salvation?

Could you tell me about
 being born again?
And share with me how
 much you love him?

What is it like to become
a Christian?
And to serve Christ,
 As a daily mission?

I want to know how God 
has changed you!
I don't really know whom else to turn to.

Are you one that I can
 really depend?
I assume that Jesus is 
your best friend?

Please listen to what 
I have to say...
And spend some of your time
 with me today!.

a womans cry

Dynasties of radiance splash into a womans swimming pool of excellence a womans cry transforms failures into triumph, should i feel agony & defeat for the lost bondage of our love, does a womans cry begin to symbolize the sacred feelings hiding inside the belly of a mans lies, a queen at the throne was promised, i bear children in the midst of our fight for survival do you dare assassinate my worth, my conscious is a relentless drum at the mercy of ones entertaining commands listen to a womans cry, how do i remain steady when even i question my character, is it wrong to look towards the heavens seeking pity for not being your lone constant treasure, such a life grows deeper as i sleep but find not an eye full of rest, my heart is but a mere myth who will hear a woman cry, weary i crawl for the weight of your misfortunes too great to shield, my place as a mother weakend by your arrows of discretions, spare me of your tough ridges, rid me of your chaotic demanor, heal my wounded but not broken spirit from your barbariac abuse, sooth my emotions for empty i remain a womans cry

RUNNING TIME

Yesterday...
I dreamt of becoming a nurse..
So, I studied hard, give my best to my course..
Thus, smiles and praises of patients who came to my care, I incur...

Today...
I am in midway of my dreams...
Attitude and character, I learn to trim..
Achieving memories of lifetime gleam..

Someday..
I will also walk down the aisle...
Wearing elegantly white satin gown..
There at the end, the man I'll be with will be waiting...

Tomorrow...
Who knows what will it bring..
All I know now is I will do everything..
Pursuing risks at hand not feel guilt after that I never did..

FACT: MISSING YOU

The fact that i am missing you...
I feel happy but a little blue..
I wish you and I are near..
That each time I feel like this I'll go rear..

The fact that I miss you..
Each corner of the room I glance, seems you are present..
I am owed by Your awesome presence..
I despice the truth of your absence..

The fact that I miss you..
I will find a way to reach you..
By e-mail; by phonecall; by going to you..
For this way, I might be with you..

The fact that I miss you..
I will reminisce some memories we have..
Of the times, we are sharing joy and love..
May we be blessed more by God above..

The fact that I miss you..
I will wish and whisper a prayer for you..
I want you be safe and be happy as I wil..

You are my everything

You are my everything

You can't leave me alone
I know just for a while you are gone
But keep informing me about you
Cause its very dreadful to wait alone 

I want to see your face 
Only I know its beauty and grace
You're my life, my soul
Of someone else there's no space

I only know you're mine
You're my apple, I'm your mela-pine
My life is nothing without you
Talk to me or give some sign

Swallowing Colors

Swallowing colors from a new day 
replacing the moon
Affecting my soul as it orbits this 
world I find you
Never have I seen such a beautiful 
sunrise
Until I saw one ignite the passion 
deep inside of your eyes

Turning the beats of my heart into a 
sweet melody
As I listen to your voice then your 
lips begin melting me
I can feel myself longing for the fire 
that once consumed all of my love 
It was like eating the sun so it 
scorched the taste of your kiss from 
my tongue

Quietly the day falls away with little 
drops of rain
Separating horizon from the 
sunsetting behind colors of gray
Now even beneath a black sky I can 
still see your radiant face
Tracing a silhouette of your world 
embodied with heavenly grace

What A Friend Really Is


Have you thought about what friendship is? Is it someone who loves and forgives? I’m sure many people have a different meaning! There’s many directions to be leaning. Friendship comes in different forms and kinds. It develops a kinship among hearts and minds! I’m sure that many want to be a friend to another. But there is one, who sticks closer than a brother! This one is the very best friend, that I can speak of! He brings the best friendship, that I can think of! He brings to friendship a new purpose and desire… To bring eternal love! And lift you up higher! He is the very definition of what a friend should be! He’ll be your best friend now! And for eternity! His name is Jesus! I encourage you to invite him in! Won’t you allow him to be your savior and friend? His faithfulness and commitment are 100% true! He’ll always be there for me, and for YOU! Friendship with Jesus, is fellowship divine! He’ll never let you down! Not a single time! Friendship with Jesus… Without a doubt! He is what being a true friend is all about! By Jim Pemberton

Conversing slow under cool autumn breeze. I slowly strew breadcrumbs, I brought, to feed Flocks of hungry teased birds from seven seas. Nameless, unremembered kindness is love seed... Offering calls if she needs anything as I set forth. I jog while extending my hands and knees. Heading then to my home near highway North, I stop, thank God, for the rainbow quilt from trees. for my niece, I bought the best bagel with cheese. Not her birthday but because she's nice indeed! Light ¬dark; good ¬bad her patience a trapeze. Nameless, unremembered kindness is love seed... Locked ~ drooping hearts balm is a kindness squeeze. Tieing strangers shoelace, a kindness head deed. Sharing a meal with a beggar without fees. Nameless, unremembered kindness is love seed... (c)Olive Eloisa 5:20 PM July 13, 2014

DESCRIBING DADDY

My daddy is a big hotty
With energetic strong body
Mashallah! Sometimes bit naughty
Even more awesome witty

We talked and chat a few
In a website I found and choose
He said he is tall
Yet for me his height bit small

He said I'm his baby
I don't mind as his my daddy
He as sweet as any candy
His looks likes a dandy

Been a year we share
Of anything we talk dare
Though, events seems unfair
Really, to him I care

Twix that's his chocolate
I bought and tried to ate
With sweet caramel inside
With him he sets me a side

To when, I can see him real
That, I can't know and feel
All I know we made a deal
That, Insha'Allah we meet heel to heel

THAT SAME DAY

One long stem white rose, he extends
To a lass, he chose and longed to tend
With cold both hands, she gets and smell
Each petal closed wanting to bloom and swell

Years has passed since the very same day
She agreed and said yes for a date
Same cafeteria, they chose and sat to stay
Old familiar faces laughing on the queue

Her short hair before, now healthier longer
Her heart shaped face, accented with colors
Her full soft lips, a delicious bright pink
Her eyes, before shy anew with confidence

How could I ever forget such radiance
How could I not want for more and more
Leaving me in awe, catching my breath
Digging in to my thoughts and feelings

With these, led me to woo and win her
With these, it inspired and moved me to her
Bearing my prayers that God will bless me
And God has been good and great
For this same day, she
agreed for marriage

Who Or What Can Fill Life's Empty Void

Who are what can fill your life’s “empty void?”
In spite of the many things
 that you have “enjoyed.”

Drugs… Sex…  Money…  Are you concerned?
Has your life been one that’s
 taken “the wrong turn?”

There’s many choices to make.  
I’m fooling you not!
But there’s a godly principle
 that must be taught!

The void we have.  Only the presence
 of God can fulfill!
Bringing you true love, 
is God’s purpose and will!

Won’t you take a moment
 with the king of kings?
And allow him to take control of everything?

Jesus will never disappointed you!  
Not now or ever!
He wants to be your friend! 
 Today and forever!

The God of this world and universe, 
wants to come in!
A Brand new way of living…  
Is waiting to BEGIN!

DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

This diamond in the rough didn't know until he ask
everyone said you crazy boy you're not in her class
But you said yes, now I guess they're all surprised
this relational forecast is quickly being revised :)

Feels like global warming, things are heating up
yeah girl, I'm more excited than a little pup
Got a full on fever, and I don't want the cure
mesmerized, your every move is a sweet allure

La da da da .. da da ..
your every move a sweet allure

We're here together, you're melting in my arms
feeling so vulnerable to all your feminine charms
It's incredibly intense but we are flying free
getting lost in our love, we have found serenity 

We're lost in our love.. found serenity
Lost in love.. just you and me

You believed in this diamond in the rough
One yes was more, girl.. more than enough

Lost in our love.. just you and me
Lost in our love.. we found serenity
Lost in our love.. girl, more than enough
You're making music with a diamond in the rough
You're making music with a diamond in the rough!

God Told Me That I Need Effective Prayer

God Told Me That I Need Effective Prayer!

God told me, in order for my prayer to be effective.
That I should not choose to be so “selective.”

I asked him: “what do you mean by this question?”
I wasn’t quite prepared for the reception!

God said; “You’ve chosen to be selective in how you live.”
“There’s only so much, to me, that you want to give!”

“You said that I’m your Lord, by your way of living.”
“But a life of holiness, is what you’re not giving.”

“You want the prayer answered,
 but have nothing to show for it.”
“You claim to accept my grace,
 but aren’t willing to share it.”

“How can I answer your prayer,
 when it’s only convenient?”
“Haven’t I been patient with you?”
“And most lenient?”

“Give up all that you have, and give it to the poor!”
“Then you’ll know what prayer life is really meant for!”

“Give me your heart!”  “And take time to really listen!”
“There’s so much more of me, that you’ve been missin’!”

“Obey my words and experience the life I have given!”
“Know what it means to be cleansed and forgiven!”

“Than your life will change, and your prayer time too!”
“I will give you the strength to make it through!”

“You will know what it means to spend time with me!”
“And your prayers will impact you for eternity!”

My love

        My love, is you 
       My love is pure of heart
     And with my love I give you my all
    With my love I won't shed tear to the cloud 
My love is everlasting can't you understand me
My love is like some roaring ocean just to have you near
  And with loves grace I abide by you
  My love will go on as long as you will stay
With the stars that shine for us as long as you'll accept

POWERFUL HUG

POWER HUG

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

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

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

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

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

I Was At the End of LIfe's Road


I felt worn out... discouraged and defeated.
Nothing in my life right  
seemed to be completed. 

I felt alone, knocked down and betrayed!
I never thought I'd feel this scared and afraid. 

In this very dark time, where would I run?
Where would any help actually come from? 

I felt utterly worthless and quite alone...
With each passing day, in this place I called "home." 

As I got up, each morning and opened the bedroom door.
And wondered if anyone cared about me anymore?

I felt a "tug" on my shoulder and looked around.
And noticed a bright light, shining toward the ground. 

"I love you my son." Where the words I heard.
Excitement and hope within my heart was stirred. 

I looked up and couldn't began to explain.
The love I felt when I called on Jesus' name! 

From my ceiling, I saw what looked like an angelic being.
He said, "I am God! “ I can do anything!" 

He reached down and gently picked me up out of bed.
Words of mercy and hope where what he had said. 

"I am here so that you may rise up and live."
"All of your failures and sins I will forgive." 

Everything inside of me... God did understand!
With him here... I knew victory was at hand! 
This particular day, this was certain. 
He took away my sins and heavy burdens! 

Look at me now and it's so plain to see!
He can do for YOU, what he's done for ME!

Thanks For My Wonderful Wife


I remember the first time I
 and my wife first met.
The beauty in her...  I'll never forget!

I won't forget the day 
and the place.
I'll never forget the look
 on her face.

The feeling I had was
 hard to describe.
I knew she was going to be my bride!

I'm thankful to Jesus for 
bringing us together.
Binding us as one... 
Both now and forever!

Twenty years have passed...
 since our wedding day.
She's still my beautiful wife!  
I'm proud to say!

Thanks be to God,
 for making us one.
I pray for his blessings upon
 our daughters and sons.

May God be the unifying 
love in all that we do.
May we never forget the meaning of...
 "I love YOU!"

Each day I look at her... 
what do I see?
This wonderful wife God
 has brought to me!

I'm thankful and honored
 to have her as my wife.
She's been such a blessing...  
A great part of my life!

COUPLES AND HONEY BEES

They produce one of the sweetest
A cluster sting will be deadliest
A buzzing sound they can at loudiest
However, they produce one sweetest 

Honey, a sweet endearment
Most couples say and comment
Queen and drone, they are
Female and male, we are

Honey bees they are on extinct
Are long lasting couples on brink too?
80% of flora will die...
Relationships a sacrifice

You find a way to free the hopeless 
And bring the banished home to stay

HANDS, EYES, EARS AND HEART

A hand to hold that's what she wish..
A hand who will not let go...
Rather a hand that holds not tight nor loose..
A hand that is firm to touch...

Eyes that even without words speak, she asks..
Eyes that looks not only of the outside..
Rather eyes that scrutinizes details..
Eyes who when stares, hugs and encourages..

Ears that listens attentively, she says..
Ears which when hears doesn't judge..
Rather, ears sensitive to feelings hidden by tones..
Pair of ears that seeks to clarify..

A heart that clearly understands, she adds..
Heart that is not of richness from golds..
Rather, a heart swelling with pureness..
One heart beating all specially love...

We Can't Break

I had it in the back of my mind
I knew it could happen in time
You’d look at me some day not really knowin’
If we’d keep goin’ on this way
We know we have a good thing worth holdin’   
Don't see us at the point of foldin’
We know we’re each other’s daily pleasure
But so afraid of forever
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break, no no
Babe we can’t break
 
You stare at me always smiling
That yearning look in your eyes
The way you make me laugh makes me tremble
Makes me feel that I’m your prize
Let’s give ourselves without reservation
Want all future moments with you
Doesn't have to be about persuasion
We’ll cherish all the things that we do
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break
Babe we can’t break yeah
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
I feel myself shakin’
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now (to think right now)
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break no no
Babe we can’t break (Babe we can’t break)
Babe we can’t break
Babe we can’t break

Patience

As my heart beats simultaneously to the ticking of the eternal clock,
I sit and ponder on what life has for me to come.
As life goes on around me,
as my friends go on with lives meant to be lived,
and as my brothers find lovely girls to bring home to Mom;
I sit and ponder, when? When is it going to be my time to show love?!
When am I going to be able to open up emotionally to my special one,
and where am I going to find her?

Envy takes a toll on my soul,
as my heart wants to love and be loved,
I tear it down with self-pity and hate.
Jealousy's green flows through my veins,
when I see my friend hugging and kissing his girl,
and when my brother talks of his future wife,
I am excited as ever could be,
but something deep in my chambered heart
wants to break out with force and scream!

...Jealousy halts the clock and pushes it back,
Patience pushes the clock forward, making time come faster,
and that moment when you least expect it,
the love of your life comes out of nowhere
and holds you and kisses you and makes you laugh and smile.
Patience, such a word with such a powerful meaning to life.
Patience is key,
with no patience in this world, we'd all kill ourselves
and we'd all lose our minds,
falling in love with hearts that never stood a chance with you.
If you want love, and be loved,
open your heart,
don't give away your heart,
but give enough to people, so they see you in a different light,
and open new ideas of your character.
You never know who is around the corner,
so enjoy life,
and be patient,
and time will come soon enough
and you'll smile and thank the heavens,
but for now, just relax and enjoy life.

ANTIQUES

Thirty eight years has gone by
Songs as old as baby's lullaby
Still the two  leather boxes has survive
When she open with her key... to my surprise!

There... greeting cards, flowers and letters
White papers before... now brown colored
Flowers earlier fresh red... now wilted but preserved
Spotless written words ahead... now little blotted

She said they are priceless and timeless
Though, some laughed and said corny and useless
Yet, from any gold or silver to her its invaluable 
For by these her distant love became possible

As this the testimony of her love
...Embroidered and made perfect by God
Her one and only true love
...No other than - my great dad.

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

I Remember When I Used to Pray

I Remember When I Took Time to Pray!

Our family would gather for dinner each day.
Our dad would first take the time to pray!

As kids, we thought it was important to do!
I remember praying over my food in school!

I was taught that we should give God thanksgiving!
And be grateful for how he blessed our way of living!

I remembered praying in the restaurants for the food.
We wanted to honor God!  And not be rude!

But as the many years have come and went…
I think about where my time is now spent.

Prayer doesn’t seem like it used to be!
I often try not to let this really bother me!

But as I get older, and think about the past…
Father time has a way of creeping up fast!

This God I once took the time to speak to.
Is the one that I seldom take time to pray to!

I need his help right now!  More than ever!
I’m not going to be on this earth forever!

I’m going to focus on Jesus in a new direction!
And give to him, my desires and ambitions!

Talking with Jesus is the best thing I can do!
Prayer can change my life!  And be renewed!

Won’t you take the time to talk to God in prayer?
He’s waiting for you!  And really cares!

I May Change, But Jesus Remains the Same

I May Change, But Jesus Remains the Same!

Jesus remains the same! 
 Even when I’m burdened!
He loves you and me! 
 This is most certain!

He’s the same yesterday, today and the future!
Because of him, my life is a “bright picture!”

He’s committed to do what he’s promised to do!
It was he, that bled and died, 
for me and YOU!

He remains the same!  No matter
 how many fail me!
How many have let you down? 
 Can you tell me?

I’m so thankful for his blessings
 that come my way!
Words of encourage and hope,
 are what he has to say!

He’s the lover and redeemer,
 of my weary soul!
He cleansed my sins!
 And made me whole!

I’m so thankful for him!
 And all that he does!
He reigns with God the father,
 in heaven above!

Glory to Jesus in the highest! 
 Peace toward all men!
He will always be the same! 
 Hallelujah and AMEN!

I'm NOT Ashamed of What Jesus Has Done


I’m not ashamed of what Jesus has done for me!
He took away my sin, that I might be free!

 He’s my everything!

I’m not ashamed of his sacrifice on the cross!
He picked me up, when I was utterly lost!

I’m not ashamed of his glorious good news!
Jesus brings the victory!
 He’ll never lose!

I’m not ashamed to introduce him to YOU!
He can change and make
 your life BRAND NEW!

I’m happy to know him as my Lord
 and shining light!
His spirit is there to guide me,
 each day and night!

I’m happy and thankful!  Yes indeed!
Jesus has come, and met my every need!

I’m thrilled to know him! I expect him any day!
I want to be attentive to what he has to say!

I’m glad to know Jesus!  He’s beautiful to me!
I’m happy that I’ll be with him, for eternity!

At his tabernacle, will I sacrifice shouts of joy! Singing and making music to the Lord, I shall enjoy! I am confident in the Lord’s goodness, in the land of the living!

The Joy That God Brings to Me

The Joy That God Brings to Me… 
God gives me strength
 and everlasting joy.
His words in my life,
I need to employ. 

His joy brings strength
to my very soul,
giving comfort no matter
where I may go. 

His joy gives a security,
this world can’t give!
It is with me, every day I live. 

In my God, I will take delight!
For he is with me
every day and night!

From the appearance of evil,
may I  abstain!
And live in the joy of Jesus’
precious name!

In Jesus, my life is complete!
As I lay my burdens at his feet!

Over life’s adversities,
I’ll rise above!
And rest in the joy
Of God’s abiding love!

LIKE A HIRED SOLDIER

who can tell a person is wrong or right?

day-to-day each one is a hired soldier..
fighting in their own battlefield..
not to kill a criminal or a terrorist..
rather a person striving for better life..

who can definitely say one's reason for living?

allow me to say that each one is struggling so..
one reason maybe is to earn a living..
one reason maybe is to gain power..
or this maybe one reason to share God's love...

who can tell hundred percent that such person can do harm?

isn't it, only by giving into chances that you can know one person..?
isn't it, through God's eyes we are all equal despite who we are here on earth..?
isn't it , through genuine acceptance that divisions and differences are broken?
isn't it reaching out is fine but alright?

sad to say that persons judge without knowing..
sad to say persons can conclude without even investigating..
sad to say, persons who are educated will look at others just by their race..
sad to say, persons outcast and demeans another person because of looks..

hired soldiers we maybe everyday..
true to say, we must on guard to others..
we must be vigilant to stay protected..
we must use all resources in us to keep living..

however, must we be hired soldiers to condemn and persecute innocence?

I Am En-Titled To Love

I wish that you could see "The Real Me".
I'm not just that girl with the "Scarred Heart".
This torture of "Forbidden Love" has to end,
"Nevermore" can this broken heart long for love.
"Just Forget Me", my inspiration, I can no longer find you.
Instead I have to write about "A Fairy's Fantasy" world,
and not a true love ode, but an "Ode To Autumn".
Finding my "Soul Mate" would bring "Serenity" to me.
"For No One But Me" deserves this happiness,
such an inspiration would be "Heaven For A Poet".

A Piece of Love for Anne-Lise

The first ever greeting I recieved on that day.
The first chance I posted a piece from my brain.
The sweetest message she sent to me.
A poem that ode for my little Charrise.
She is the most beautiful woman I ever knew.
Her heart is pure,her words are true.
Thought that first time, she's only twenty-two.
Days have gone , year turned new.
She keeps on sending her positive views.
She gets sad when the theme is for love,
Especially when it's about broken heart.
You can feel the emotion she puts in the box.
The message that will warm your heart.
A powerful insight surely made up your mind.
She is an inspiration ever since I first write.
She is the lovely friend from the far away land.
Even miles can't bring any gap.
No boundaries can build to feel her heart.
She is the most beautiful woman of her time.
She is Anne-Lise Andresen,
"Hugs and kisses," she sends from Norway.

In The Mood For Love Again

Inside my heart I still ache.
Nothing can soothe my wounded soul.

Time they say will heal all wounds.
Help is just one date away.
Embrace the future, forget the past.

My heart still beats, it needs true love.
Old memories will fade into nothingness.
Of course my life must go on.
Dead souls are revived by new love.

Forget the failures, leave them behind.
Often love comes when it is least expected.
Restless hearts can be soothed.

Love can be found if you seek it hard.
Of course you have to truly believe.
Very soon two hearts will meet.
Everyone is searching for love sweet love.

Again into the fray I go with a hopeful heart.
Gladly I go seeking the girl of my dreams.
All good things come to true believers.
I go forward with my eyes wide open.
Now is indeed the time for enduring love.

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!

Romantic Feelings

Thus thou be kind to let me be
This heart explodes if not said to thee
Words spoken as true as love
By Jove! Ye art sent from up above

Those sweet smiles that make thy world go round and round
Just one night thine heart was not found
Because la belle dame named
Just took it on her arm

Oh I think I have gone mad
To pursue that love I never had
‘Cause I know we art two worlds away
How I wish I could longer stay

Though it may this heart ever throb
But I admit there is a locked doorknob
I can’t enter, stay outside
At that very moment I could have died

I will dream tonight f that very key
And dwell in the world of hyperreality
So that I can subtly see
The thoughts of being together; you and me

Nor a story of self- reliance 

It does not lay claim
To those who place blame

Or what was once thought to be fate

Love is sadness in a mothers eyes
As far away her son flies

Dropping it all on a dime
For a friendship impossible to define

Love never looses sight
Of what it knows to be right

Impossible to ignore
Like waves crashing upon the shore

It surprises us all
Like a child's first steps from a crawl

It will break us down
But only then can it be found

ONE DAY AT A TIME

Isn't it everyday may come a surprise?
For one may never know what
Forget the past and awful pride
Instead, aim for  happiness as a prize

Here there and everywhere
Somehow, it ca be anywhere
Start searching; finding it within 
As any feeling felt grows like a bean


Spring out love and kindness
Avoiding material things in madness
Sticking to life's simplicity and lightness
Embracing it, nothing but truthfulness

PIECE BY PIECE IT FITS

The sound of your voice stuns me..
The gaze we hold when our eyes lock, melts me..
The way we talk long hours everyday, comforts me..
The gentleness of your treatment, keeps me..

Oh! I flutter with your cleverness..
I blush at your complements..
I hide at your naughtyness..
I follow at your truthfulness..

The boken pieces beginning to fit..
Hope they will not anymore split..
Rather, each piece is a good hit..
Worth finishing in a whole lifetime sit...

Warm welcome, no doubt..
Burning hope, a remark..
Unmoved faith to God, a heavy armor..

WITH JESUS, NO MARK OF CAIN


Out of my league, that's how you are
Still my foolish heart saw you a par
To your proposed love, I did not refrain
I will be happier, once I fall in love again

Far cry the laws, we tried and go beyond
We're happy and giddy yet all gone wrong
To people around, I've been a mark of Cain
I will be happier, once I fall in love again

I shared my time, my heart and my life..
But you, YOU rife all nothing but strife
No words can explain the pain that reign
I will be happier, once I fall in love again

I am scared, so afraid to show all reasons
Thus, I cling... cling tightly unto my Jesus
With this, I sustained. New strength I gain
I will be happier, once I fall in love again

Surreal Love

I pray to God that it will be a brighter day; 
I want his warmth to clothe me day after day 
Someday, the sun will erase all of my doubts
 and push away the clouds…
I want to be a positive schoolboy – but the clouds 
Cover me like mesmerizing, despondent shrouds  
I want to be a positive youngster – I need to stay
 True to my unaccomplished goals everyday

Lord, I know life has its ups and downs – but, I must keep a steady pace…
I want to develop a stable mentality with no trace of pity 
Lord, I know life gets problematic in the long run – I FEAR I might fall on my face
I just want to be content – I want my dreams to become a reality 

I'll be loving you forever… 
for you’re the last thing on my mind before I go to sleep at night
I’ll take a moment just to ponder… 
About you and our time together – thinking about you restores hope, joy and might

our love is wholesome and so much more…
our love will grow on forevermore…
our love is real and it’s a great deal…
our love is beyond measure and it’s totally real…
Our Love is oh so surreal 
You melt my anguish away…
Our love can heal a broken heart
You cherish me in the month of May 
You blow away winter’s dismay

I pray to God for a more optimistic mindset…
Hopefully it doesn’t result in forfeits  
 Push away the gray…and laminate it with a striking sunset, 
I’m drowning in his inclement, rainy regrets

I’ll make sure to embrace competition…
for you're my reason I run the extra mile, winning honor and applauds
I’ll take a moment to pursue my ambition...
Of being with you always and forever – I fear I might lose all of my odds 
With you…your heart isn’t pumping with vile frauds 
Every single second spent with you…
Makes my spirit soar anew...
I never experienced such surreal love
Our love flourishes rapidly from up above 

I’m sick with a love flu *cough* *cough*

The Robbery

Rob me of my purity,
But once again it's all my fault;
Fell into the trap of false promises
Because I pressed play instead of pause.

Our Security Is In God Alone


Our security is only in God alone!
Not in the things we have,
 or what we call “home!”

True joy can be found in God himself!
Not from the things we have ourselves!

True contentment can be found at the cross!
Jesus’ death paid whatever it cost!

Eternal love comes from doing God’s will!
Any emptiness, his love shall fill!

The love of God is truly worth finding!
His eternal life is forever binding!

Won’t you take a moment and invite HIM in?
And have total forgiveness of every sin?

God rewards those who diligently seek him.
Won’t you reach out to him now? 
And receive him?

Living A Life That's Pleasing to God

Living A Life That’s Pleasing to God!

We must live in a way that's
 pleasing to the Lord
Neglecting his word... 
we can’t afford!

It’s HIS will to be sanctified 
and avoid immorality.
If we don't…  It’ll lead to 
a spiritual fatality!

With God's help...  Our body... 
We must control!
God's instructions for holiness,
we ought to know.

The sins against the body 
will not go unpunished!
Our spiritual life needs to
 be daily replenished!

God has called us to be holy, 
and not impure.
His word in our life, 
we must daily secure!

Whoever rejects his instruction ...
also rejects HIM.
And will lose out on what it means
 to be free from sin!

Let’s seek a Godly life!
As our goal and ambition!
Having Jesus in us
 is a great addition!

Living a pure life is 
what we must do.
He has the power to give victory
 to ME and YOU!

Took A While To See

Look at me, look how things have changed
Don’t know how life got so rearranged
Didn't see it coming, took a while to see

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see

Took a while to find that peace we searched for
But what we made we both adore
Think we can agree, it’s as it should be

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see

I know this life’s what it’s supposed to be
It’s sometimes not easy to see
The way to be free

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see
Oh, it took a while to see
Umm..

Jesus Called Me to Follow HIM

Jesus Called Me to Follow HIM!

"Come follow me" was the voice I heard.
As I began to hear Christ’ words!
I was humbled to receive a heavenly invitation.
 I accepted Gods wondrous gift of salvation!

"Why me?" was the question I pondered.
 For so many years… I had wandered.

 I knelt down and invited Jesus to come in,
He took away my guilt and my darkest sin!
He's brought a new life! And a love worth finding!
His joy in my heart is HIS perfect timing!

I cry tears of joy I once never had…
I now have peace inside! I’m so glad!

Why not invite him in to your life as well?
He loves you much more than words can tell!

"Come follow me!”  Is the master's call!
Eternal life is freely offered to all!
Jesus waits for you, each day and night!
He'll bring to your heart true delight!

You'll find a true love you can only obtain…
By inviting him in!  Just call on his name!

Do You Feel There's Nowhere to Go

Do You Feel Like There’s Nowhere to Go? I know that it's easy to get discouraged and upset. Feeling “trapped” ... But can't escape "just yet." You've tried everything. And not sure what else to do? Is there someone who can help you through?" Many things you've done. You’ve wanted to be forgiven! Yet struggle with this each day you're livin’! You meet people and wear a "smile." And sometimes wonder if living is really worth the while. You may have prayed over and over again. And yet constantly feel Like you’re “trapped within.” You may have tried to call on Jesus' name. Yet find yourself in "guilt and shame." Jesus is here now! And wants you to know… He can bring peace to your troubled soul. Rather than thinking of things done in the past. Come to Jesus now! His love will always LAST! Allow HIM to bring to your life the needed victory now! He'll make you a brand new person! And HOW! By Jim Pemberton

BEAUTIFUL AURA

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

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

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

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

MIND OVER HEART

Two nights before heart's day
Again, will I be just on sidebay
How I wish I have a love today
My heart, time and effort I'll lay

Cupid's arrow, aim at my heart
Keep it open wide and apart
Precautions on red alert guard
Senses heightened twice on dart

On "likes", do not sink and submerge
Like the Titanic banged an iceberg
Use the heart to feel and feel
Yet, bring the mind to think and fill

Feelings really overpower
Yet, stop! Stop! Stop!
Exercise the mind's power
Weigh things up, think it over

Reflections Of You

When walking a path that you wish to take
A memory of love that never was a mistake
Holding hands with the most of caring person
Gave a virtue of different emotions and lesson
Now you share and grow to care for another
And you have created a family with no other
It shows through generations that you have virtue 
Of whom you shared your love and faith in is true
The image of both of you comes to make a new
A new creation of a reflection of you

Canon

Canon

He harks the orologio ticks that count
the cosmic seconds that relentless fade
the iron peal of bells and rhythmic sound
expands the utterance his verses prayed.

A silken antimins - her blooming scent
where consecrated scriptures lay
perceived the liturgy and soul's descent
the antiphon of Corpus' Christi sway.

Denomination of the astral halls
his fervid coursing and her mystic stance
dismissal nightly voice to skyward calls
ascension of his soul's her stare askance.

Devoid 's the night that takes his life and past 
she harks his voice the sovereign woods contrast.

AWAKE THEM, LOVE

I have fallen crazy madly deeply in love..
How many times I tried but failed..
How many times I take risks yet I was wronged..
So, I did cry and feel so hurt...

Whispered by my mind: "stop & take care"
this Stubborn heart rejects and says: "find your pair"..
I must stand follow a strong will..
Not round up nor down like a wheel..

Undefinable; unexplainable love..
how you been?
Where have you been?
share to me not be trashed in bin..

a lot needs and wants you..
yet few shows a genuine you..
soothers and enlighteners of blues..
shoving all worries and woes..

nowadays, in world full of gloom
won't you mind to flourish and bloom?
spring out to everyone's aura and mood..
pleading you to cure all wounds..

My Love

I am not able to live without you anymore

There is no existence without you

If I am separated from you

Then I will be separated from my own self

Because it's only you, who has become my life
 
My peace, my pain, my love, you are everything

Our relationship is such that even one moment apart is troubling

I live everyday only for you; I have given all my time only to you

There is no moment which is without you,

Your name is present in all my breaths

Your love has supported me; it has removed all sadness from my heart

My fate has been joined with your's, 

I have not been incomplete once I met you

My peace, my pain, my love, you are my everything

God Gave Us His Truth But Many Reject It

God Gave Us His Truth, But Many Reject It!

God gave us his truth…  But many reject it!
Many have chosen a lie…  
And accept it!

God gave us his word, so we can live by his rules.
Without God in our lives, many have become “fools.”

Refusing God’s holy truth,
 and accepting a corruptible lie!
They believe whatever untruth can “satisfy.”

For this reason, many have
a very confused mind!
As many look for answers
 of various kinds!

God’s word is the only truth to securely build on!
But many have brought confusion
 to build their lives on!

The principles of God’s word, 
give true freedom to all!
Won’t you “wake up?” 
And heed the master’s call?

God is calling everyone to listen to what he’s saying!
It’s time we seek his truth! 
 In humbleness and praying!

The truth of Jesus Christ is the most important thing!
He has the answer to whatever life may bring!

Please allow his precious truth to touch your life today!
He can remove and take
all doubts away!

The words of Jesus Christ ring loud and very clear!
He’ll bring the sunshine in! 
Any darkness will disappear!

I Cannot See You In The Fog

The tides roll in; I do not see them,
As the fog breathes in, obscuring the sun,
Just a moment ago, you were here beside me,
But the fog stole in, and now you’re gone.

In the daylight, we were so very bright,
As diamonds sparkling in the sands of time,
Two pearls together in a single shell,
We left to see what lay beyond.

And somewhere upon our newfound shores,
We let our eyes wonder for a moment's glimpse,
To see if what we shared was true,
And ignored that fog growing ever dense.

Yet sometimes the fog is what we need,
To teach us how to walk alone,
So when our daylight comes breaking through,
It's not the WHERE, for which we care...

But for the WHO is our true home.

So meet me down on the shores of time,
My darling, when the daybreak springs,
Lay your soft head on my wearied chest...
Let the tides roll in and do the rest...

They’ll sweep us back into forever,
That together, forever we shall never loose,
Except again, when a fog rolls in...
And the home we are, is the one we choose.

Champion's Chomp

A Champion must lust for that ancient adrenaline
the primal prize alive in the eyes, trophy of thunder in the pulse,
a Champion's heart welcomes adversity with teeth gleaming sharply,
worships the battlefield with risk righteous in ripped tradition,
doesn't celebrate the strikes that knock the foe into awe
finds glory in striving for the impossible
creates Legend from the unthinkable become visible,
buries the adversary's soul in the winter of forever woe,
the Champion says with disciplined effort and presence pure in practice,
lightning is comin for you, blasting your bones, bashing your boasts
tear you up and down and all around
your dreams nor dare, will not be found,

The Champion must adore the trauma of training,
remembers the humility of a Beginer's trouncing,
must pray with innocent instinct, thank Providence with confident conviction,
makin bravery out of bruises and being headstrong amidst hecklers,
invents technique like a Freeborn freak,
they shame the opposition into reverence with indisputable excellence,
true Champions are unforgettable, architects of shock and hope irrevocable,
indestructable like a titanium pyramid,

To be a Champion is to have a demolishing drive,
they must excel when underestimated
and must dominate when expected to succeed,
the Champion's Faith devours fear and punishes pretenders,
to finish the foe with decisive declaration, " Check Mate! "
a Champion always defies, and never dies,
there is no calculation of defeat for an Angel following a Divine beat -

J.A.B.

UNDER THE HEAVEN STARS

         Rays of yellow and orange sunlight
           Your eyes beaming with delight
     Strolling hand by hand along the garden
   Where flowers blooms and sweetness blend

         Tucking an orchid behind my ear
         Drawing me so close and so dear
         I smell your musky natural scent
         Twirling and filling me with sense

       Quietly, we sat and had a small talk
           Unminding even, as night falls
             On the grass, we lie down
    Staring up and pointing to heaven stars 

    Under the shadowy gleam of the moon
     There and there, we shared one kiss
    Next to you in a warmth loving cocoon

Dear all women, You made me write again and again

Dear all women, You made me write again and again
Not about beauty, not about beasts, but about my self
And the origin of my silence, snakes, silos and stillness
How much ever fast I ran, you caved my self, selflessly

I searched your depths in my gaze, in your glance, in our trance
But all fell out of shape, like a gazoid, like a river that speaks for itself
Your language of love, your symbols of seduction, your systems of life
These words may be pending for a long time, long due or long rustic

Poems are written, lost and left behind, same like the river of leaves
That gets rotten in the bread of brown grey wooden ground
I saw many roots, hanging in the wretched skins of my arms
I sketched wrecked ships of my golden past
Poems to pencils, Words to Worms, Purple to Pupil
All are an act of Engines of growth through the Pictures of life

Many roads covered, from love to lust, dream to desire
Arrogance to ambivalence, words to willows, papers to carbon capacitors
I still shiver when a pale glass window opens in front of me

A paper cup and a torus of ladders, they came back in time
And I stood by their wishes, their long beards, their stale wishes
Their history melt before mine, though I am alone, and they wander in mine
I have their fight in my mirrors, the mirrors that I name, call, scream and spit my gaze 
And I know that they never shapes up itself

Dear all woman, I borrow your silence, your strength and your sarcasm
On my ways, On my days, On my rays, On my wooden willows of whims and wickedness

To You My Soul Is Bound

I have wondered long on how it would feel
If true love I ever found
Would I know in my heart that this is the one
To whom my soul would be bound -
Is it to you that my soul is bound?

How should I respond to the words you speak
Can I know whether they are sincere
Am I able to tell by the sound of your voice
As you whisper in my ear?

When you look at me so lovingly
With that twinkle in your eye
It stirs my heart and lights my soul
There are times it makes me cry

I am overwhelmed at the depth of your love
How tender you are to me
And I think to myself - can this really be true
Or is it just fantasy?

Are my fears misplaced -  Do I wonder too much?
Am I using my doubts as a crutch?
Should I open my mouth and reveal to you
Just how deeply my heart has been touched?

I'll let fear and doubt go now - and trust in our love
For I know I have finally found
A treasure of love burning bright within me
And to you, my soul will be bound
Yes.  It's to you my soul is bound!

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

COMPLETED BY YOU

   Weaknesses umpteen, I couldn't tell
       Trails of wrongs, ages I swell
  Gnarled by experience, all I tried to dwell
      Spectacles of doom, myriads to spell

        Partially whole, in so many ways
      Rudimentary, even on gloomy daze
However, through curves and edges of a maze
       You cared to pursue. You stayed...

          Wishy-washy, sometimes I am
         Yet with you, there's confidence
         Ingenuous for anyone who sees
          Yet with you, there's relevance

     With you by my side, I am a prowess
        Like a soldier, prepared! Fearless!
           With your love, I am complete
       I am illimitable. Non-melting sweet!

CHANCE OF A LIFETIME


I will learn to live before i die..
I will learn to love and learn to try..
I will learn to risk and dream...
I will learn to share and to care...

I will bring out the best from anyone.. 
I will render also the best in me...
I will not wait a lifetime to show..
For if i will wait, i might lose long...

Seconds, minutes, hours and days counts...
Less be bothered by saving accounts..
As no coins or bills may amount..
To a true love that is the paramount...

We don't live twice, only once..
Careful and make it a blockbuster chance...
Avoid and don't be misled by trance..
Rather, gracefully lovingly accept life's dance...

Dont regret

You can breathe, but not live,
You can know, but not understand,
Hope, and not dream
Conquer, and not build
You can love, and not risk
Be surrounded, yet alone,
Speak, without saying a word,
Lead and not follow
Or 
Breathe and live like it is your last,
Seek to understand, that you may know,
Dream so that others may hope
Conquer that which destroys
Love, like you are loved
Surround those who are alone,
Speak, with a word of action

Daddy's Girl

I remember feeling like a queen,
Sitting on your lap.
Listening to you sing to me,
As your foot would gently tap.

I remember how you’d close your eyes,
As you sang a sad, sad song.
And how you’d wink and smile at me,
When I’d try and sing along.

I remember listening as you played,
Guitar for hours on end.
And dreaming someday I could play,
Like you my dad, my friend.

Jesus Knows All About Your Pain


Jesus Knows All About Your Pain!
 
"It's hard to see someone I love,
go through so much pain."
These were the words I spoke, 
When I called on Jesus' name.

"This person whom I love has 
gone through so much."
"How I wish to bring my peace
 and a healing touch."

I cried and wept as I heard 
the master's voice.
His gift of love is for us all...
it's our choice!

His body was broken. 
A sacrifice was made.
His love...  For our sorrow and pain... 
is what he gave!

His grace is more than sufficient,
 for the pain we often endure.
His love and commitment to you,
 is steadfast and secure!

He loves you so much!.  
And waits at your heart's door.
He gives peace and comfort!
And so much more!

The pain and suffering you're 
going through today.
Please listen to the words 
Christ has to say;

"I am God!“  “I’ll be with YOU... 
until the end!"
My love and devotion to you
 will never end."

Behold the Love of God


I’ll never fully understand, 
or comprehend.
The power of God’s love
in the cleansing of sin!

From where I was,
 to where I am today…
I appreciate God!
 More than words can say.

I shall give him 
 glory and praise!
And seek to worship him!
  All of my days!

He’s more precious to me
 than ever before!
His precious love…
I need so much more!

His marvelous love,
 shall bless me to the end…
For this, I say, “Hallelujah!” 
And “Amen!”

There's A God Who'll NEVER Fail You

In spite of what you hear, and what others tell you… There’s a God who loves and will NEVER fail you! God is powerful! Much bigger than our constitution! He’s more solid than any government institution! His wisdom what lays the groundwork for a foundation! Without him, we simply become a godless nation! He gives true freedom, when there’s none to be found! His principles of life, are what provide a solid ground! Won’t you give him a chance, in your life today? And listen to the words of love, that he has to say? His gift of salvation… You too can receive it! An everlasting life with HIM… You can achieve it! His son Jesus has brought freedom from sin! By his shed blood... You can be born again! Thank you my Lord! For the life you’ve given! You’ve never failed me! I am free and forgiven! By Jim Pemberton

Love is Light

I was once like you
young full of loving and longing
thinking love was this magical entity
that could be captured and stored 
in our hearts like a firefly in a jar
Taking walks hand in hand  
picking flowers, wishing upon stars
going no matter how far to prove
there's nothing I wouldn't do
Jump off a cliff? Too easy
I'd just be proving I'd die for a cause.  
Set sail, chase the setting sun
whatever the task, I'd wear a hero's mask
Knight in shining armor times two.
To infinity and beyond, each step
a first step bringing me back to you
After several years of walking in circles
I realized what love wasn't,
which led me to discover what it is.
Love is light. Just an inkling of it  
gives new life. 
For some it fades quickly
and others it last for eternity
Love is an entity residing between two beings  
It's an adhesive for some, for others
it leaves a sticky residue
No matter what it ends up being,  
it's a gift, lest you forget  
The smallest amount can save the world  
make a homeless person feel at home
in the middle of Times Square
Where the world goes wrong is
when it forgets what's been bottled up inside
Love is a firefly trapped way down on the inside 
sometimes we refuse to let it glow
no one ever knows, love is a gift
just as much as it is a myth.
I've lived long enough, walked enough circles  
to see love and its many phases
but its light never changes.
Love is light.

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.

WANDERING IN MY MIND

I remember when and how it all started..
On when, it was few months ago we chatted..
On how, along a thousands of strangers our ways threaded..
Now, you keep wandering in my mind.. 

A dreamlike statutes, you and I shared thoughts...
Of yesterdays, we thrive and forwardly fought..
Of tomorrows, we aspire and sought..
You keep wandering in my mind...

For sometime, we agree to a rendezvouz..
Although unsure, if we win or lose..
Yet, uncaringly we did paving way for us to boost..
You keep wandering in my mind..

Towering me by your otward heights..
Disengaging me in a conversation flight..
Like a colorful dancing kite in the sky..
You keep wandering in my mind..

Few months from now, I will go..
To my heart, to my humble home..
Will you come follow me or call me by phone?
You keep wandering in my mind. .

MY OWN SELFLESS LOVE

Sometimes, I wish I am a man
For if I want to win a heart
I will do everything I can
To be with the person, I love

I will talk to her about anything and everything under the sun
I will show her my day to day growing interest
I will show this every now and then
So long as her peace, I will not disturb

If she does not reply, I will leave a message
I will call her for sometime: a minute or two
I will show her I am concerned
I will let her see I care

I will try to befriend her
Know openly her goals and dreams
I will let her feel that with those she said 
I am willing to be a part of it

No rules or custom shall stop me to show 
If she rich, I must strive hard than before
I must let her know, I am someone dependable
I am someone diligent and truly responsible

I will let her be my one and only
That, I am someone who is faithful
Even if she has a lot of suitors
I will not compete with anyone but myself

I must let her see I am all that she's looking for
I will be determined and will pursue her
Give her flowers if I can; Give her any gift if I can
But with each gift, I'll touch it with some personal me

To make her remember me, That even though I bought
It is specially for her, a part of me is included in it
I will let her see my persistence and sincerity
If she is too hard still,I will try to get closer with persons close to her

To her family, her friends and even colleagues at work
If they will see me good to her, I hope they will be my bridge to her
I hope they will all the more make me shine to her
I hope if ever I win them, so her heart and yes I will win

If she has been hurt before,I will let her see am not there to hurt more
Instead, I am there to help, to restore and to heal any hurts
If in any event it was inevitable that I hurt her, I will again win her back
For I do not want to lose her, I would rather be the one hurting than her

I will focus on the day I met her, for I want to be her present and future
Whatever was her in the past, I will lay it rest and be gone history
That even if past the years, age touch us physically and emotionally
I will stand steadfastly on her side for as long as God will permit

I will ask fervently for God's blessing and grace
Sensitive enough and with her happiness as my priority
With all these, I believe no heart is so hard and cold
That it can not be moved, That it can never even feel

Lastly, I will not make any promises
Just I will do, I will do

An Angel in Danger

Life's gifts is of all the good and 
the bad 
Never knowing what may arise 
An angel is everlasting hope we 
long to have and to hold 
We have watched you through 
just like a hawk 
We will never give up on you 
we know you are strong 
Who the angels will pull you 
through somehow 
Where there is a will there's a 
way 
And with god looking over us 
well know we will be safe
Even tho this deadly danger of 
a disease took you over
We know in our hearts that 
steady burns yull be ok 
As a fighter like Athena (a 
warriors guide)you will grow 
stronger 
Even now we see your alot 
better 
Must be these guardians of 
heaven looking over you 
Feeling good with this is all you 
may need 
This danger none should live 
But as long as there is Angels 
up above its all you will ever 
need to pull through 
A tragic time.

Disillusioned

Too afraid to make a mistake.

Stuck in a route that leaves no breaks.
What is Your plan for me Father?
At once I thought I knew.

Please bring me back to You.

The Luck in Love I See in You

Today is the day when we tied the knot
The luck in love was when I met you
That glimmers during day and night
And will not vanish like a celestial view

God has breathed two souls been searching
And so our prayers met and conceived
Passion to be with you and an undying love
As we find the rhythm of a new life beginning

Each year is glory, as we recall our vows
Nothing aureate but being together is enough
Trust is the foundation and it is all that shows
 Quality time with family is what we cared of

Something lives within your gentle eyes
That can suits me in a dark, cool and damp place
It is the loving light that radiates and supply
The stream of life as way to embrace

No love has ended without due romance
For it is something to share and far from lies
For in another life, I will still take the chance
The luck in love, I see in your eyes

Strings

If I hold on to strings,
That tend to slip away,
Does that mean I love things,
That I know will never stay?
If I hang on to a love, 
that just holds me down,
Does that mean that my wings,
Won’t get me off the ground?
If I hold on to lies,
That I only half believe,
When I look in your eyes,
Will you look back at me?

Simply not infatuation

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply a fascination

MY CHILI SAUCE

A friend once asked, “What is Love?”

And one replied Love is like an exquisite red rose flower                                                   

In a romantic, elegance, lovely shady bower

Been hooked by a gentle sexy dove

 

“What is Love?” he asked again

A pretty looking lady smiled and replied

Love is a magical feeling between a groom and a bride

It is the current that flows through my heart and brain

 

“What is Love? I want to know”

Finally, a handsome looking guy smiled and said

Love is when the heart, mind and soul are Fed

With one’s emotions and makes one’s star glow

 

So I asked, what is Love?

Some say Love is patience and kind

But I say Love is blind and can put you in a bind

Love I say can ignorantly give one a shove

 

Some say Love does not envy

Some say love does not boast

But I say Love is what others need the most

Love can actually make people go crazy

 

I have found out that Love is not a feeling

And that Love is trusting and caring

But Love can be a bit over bearing

And true Love when unwrapped brings divine healing

 

Some say “Adam and Eve created Love

Romeo and Juliet made Love

Sampson and Delilah betrayed Love

And Julius Ceaser died for Love”

 

The Love I found is a Love like no other

It was not the Love of Adam and Eve

Neither was it the Love of Sampson, who was deceive

Nor was it the Love between a sister and a brother

 

The Love I found was shed on old rugged cross

It was offered to you and me

He came into my life as a light so I can see

To sum it all up, “J-E-S-U-S is my Chili Sauce”

What You Really Don't Like Me

What?  You Really Don’t Like Me?

Is there something about me,
 that you don’t like?
If you seen me today…
Would you want me to “take a hike?”

Perhaps it’s my personality,
 or a habit of mine.
You can’t stop talking about me,
much of the time.

Pointing out my faults to some
 of the people you know…
The words you say are actually
 eating at your soul!

Instead of loving me, the way
 God wants you to…
You bring up things about m,
 you’re not supposed to do!

Have you ever just once,
took the time to pray for me?
Am I someone you want to be with
for eternity?

STOP! And think about the damage
 you’ve already done!
Begin to pour out your heart
 to Jesus, God’s son!

May he help you to really LOVE me
 the way he does!
The cross he bore was for you and I…
Whom he loves!

May your thoughts about me,
make your heavenly father proud!
I hope to see you as we meet Jesus one day…
In the clouds!

Queen Esther

(Esther 5: 2)



The King Held Out To Esther
The Golden Scepter
That Was In His Hand

She Was His Queen
The Woman Who Fulfilled His Dreams
One of The Most Beautiful In All His Lands

But It Was Persian Law For All
That Those The King Did Not Call
Would Be Struck Down Where They Stand!

Yet Brave & Beautiful Queen Esther
Whose Godly Faith Never Left Her
To Save Her People, Entered As Planned

Because There Was A Plot
Devised In Anger So Hot ...
By That Prideful, Wicked Prince Haman

To Kill All Esther's People
Haman Schemed So Evil
But The King Didn't Know Why It Began

... Or That Esther Was A Jew
In The Line of Hebrews
Who Worship The One GOD So Grand

But There Was No Hesitation
In Ahasuerus' Heart Designation
Towards This Woman Who Stood Royal & Serene

She Held Ahasuerus' Affection
and Did Not Suffer Rejection
As She Humbly Walked In, As His Queen

I Imagine All Got Quiet
Waiting For Swords To Riot
And See Esther's Head Roll Across The Floor

But At The Sight of Her Dignity
The Scepter Pointed Implicitly
To Grant Esther Whatever She Implored

And Oh, The Interplay
of Emotions That Day
Between This Woman & Her Loving Man

When The King Held Out To Esther
His Golden Scepter
... That Was In The Power of His Hand

* * * * * * * * * * * *


(Part 2)

Oh, And That Wicked Haman Was Hanged
And His Family Shared The Blame
But Esther's People Were Saved From Judah To Benjamin, To Dan

I have always loved the story of Queen Esther ... This is a love story that has it all - - a lovely-hearted, modest girl, (replacing a vain and arrogant queen) ... then getting royally pampered, massaged in expensive, perfumed oils, lots of clothes and jewels, winning a beauty pageant, finding true love, conflict and suspense and lastly the heroine saves the day (and oh, did I mention that she was an orphan?) ... 'Com' on Movie-Makers - we could enjoy a lot more of this ... MoonBee

And It Feels Like My Favorite Cuddly Blanket
Tucked 'Round Me Like Guests At A Table's Banquet

A DATE FOR TWO

A candle light formal dinner
Some prefers like that
but as for me
I want it up in a rooftop
Or simply in the garden
A picnic in the rooftop,
Where we can see the skies
Under the moonlit and stars
I wish the house near a beach
So we could see seagulls free
If in the garden..
A flower tuck side in my ear
I wish there are lots of flowerbuds
Half and fully blossomed
So their natural fragrance gloom
Butterflies that will fly 
Hope there's a tree we can lean
Or to each other's arms we can lean
Being next to each other
Holding and squeezing each other's hands
Sometimes even a half hug 
Or him or me lying on one's lap
Putting a grape or chip to one's lip
Caressing one's face
Familiarizing with each curve
Lots or small talking or no talk
Appreciating the essence of togetherness

Do We Share the Hope Christ Gave to Us

Do We Share the Hope Christ Gave Us?

The Bible says to “give reason of the hope within us.”
But too often, we drag a lot of weight beneath us!

Christ wants us freely to share his hope with others!
We need to willingly share his love with another!

How will others have hope?  Unless we share it?
Christ told us to pick up our cross, and bear it!

We need to be his example, in the world’s madness!
We need to do it from a heart of joy and gladness!

We needn’t be ashamed of the work God has done!
All glory and honor should be given to his son!

He gives joy unspeakable!  
And the half hasn’t been told!
May we be an expression of his joy!  
Both young an old!

Let’s bless the lord! In what we say and how we live!
He’s patient with us!  And so willing to forgive!

Please come Lord Jesus!  And take self pride away!
Bring your holy conviction, 
and give us the words to say!

This may seem odd!  And to many…  Old fashioned!
Stir our hearts to share 
with a godly compassion!

Please come Jesus! And stir our hearts,
 from within!
That we would love to tell others about YOU! 
Our best friend!

The Preaching of the Gospel ls An Offense to the Lost

The Preaching of the Gospel Is An Offense!

Scripture says the preaching of the gospel,
 is an offense to the lost.
Christ’ followers should share HIS news!  No matter the cost!

It seems like many in church are walking in a spirit of fear.
Many would just rather live a life that’s “happy and secure.”

“Why tell others of God’s salvation?”  This may offend!
Why, it may even cost them to lose one of their “friends!”

Many don’t know enough of God’s word to share to another.
They have a hard enough time loving
their sister or brother!

God help us!  For the many who 
Who claim to be Christ’ believers!
Many have listened to the lies of the great deceiver!

Rather than being the person to preach the gospel this hour…
Many don’t seek the Lord’s wisdom,
 strength or power!

Ball games seem to have replaced a need for prayer…
Why witness to the lost?  Is there anyone who cares?

It’s no wonder why we live in a confused generation.
As many families don’t have Jesus as their foundation!

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the best news around!
It needs to be spread to every city, village and town!

May we all be stirred to preach the good news today!
And be stirred with the words that Christ has to say!

Whosoever will, come and drink of the life he gives!
And live by HIS gospel!  Each day that we live!

Conflicted or star crossed lovers

Not a day goes by I don't think of you
you have permeated my fortress and walk freely in all its rooms
(examining it's furnishings)
how did I allow you entry without the
usual search scan and seizure ?
I'ts like a foreign substance and all
my antibodies are seeking to eradicate
your presence (anti-christs)
My mind and heart find your entrance exhilarating 
like ecstasy ( a neurologically happy drug ,
which by the way I've never imbibed in but the
other one I'm only slightly familiar with)
My body wants to throw you off like some
intruder to the death it lies in bondaged slavery of.
I finally understand the WAR.
I want to isolate this substance and imbibe at will
or as often as I desire.
There's no corner on the market for this substance,
you can only get this by freely accepting it as your 
own life blood , the loss of which kills us , but it's
flow is what keeps us alive.
I desire to lay in it's bliss
like basking in a warm sun's rays
unfortunately I burn easily , so I usually limit 
my exposure to substances I feel may do me damage.
But OH , HOW GOOD this FEELS , as though I should
have been born to this naturally .
But NO , love is not the natural substance of the world
in it's battlements and fortresses erected by men and
so thoroughly indoctrinated into his very being .
I just want to bottle this and share it with everyone.
But everyone "knows" every really really great substance
wears off and kicking the habit is way way painful .
But I want to suck this up and live in it , to have the heat
of it never dim , until it is an all consuming fire that lights
everything in it's sphere . Yes LOVE JUNKIE , child of God
a shameless addict to truth about the paths people choose
to "lose" themselves on . 
I've been like a bloodhound sniffing out every trail looking
for this substance the one that transforms you into fully
brilliantly vibrantly alive , and to roll in it until every fiber
of my being is saturated with it's fragrance.
The factory that manufactures this is built within , 
and I want unlimited access  , but my own body has
set up perimeters and walls to fence off my full access 
to my own God given life source ..(the curse)
You can only have full admittance when you can use
it's power to give life and not destroy others , to be 
able to manage it usefully for the benefit of all.
But I'm a natural indulgent in what feels good , 
substances always on the intake , seeking to have a 
balm that shields me from being abused or seeing 
my own abuses of Life. My ability to utilize a substance
so powerful is limited by my training , my will and my
exposure to everything that seeks to sell it on the open
market like a thrill seeker , or cheap whore who can be
had for a bouquet and dinner , which is quickly consumed
in one night and disappears tomorrow . Nothing that the
world offers can even slightly imitate the magnitude and 
power residing where Love dwells . When you've been 
allowed to taste its manna , the desire for a plateful
is now not even enough but the drive to constant partaking
of its presence is now an all consuming fire and I am 
driven to sign up for the lifetime plan . For better is a life
that feeds on love daily , than to choke and suffocate on
the bowls of hatred served up daily in the worlds menu.
I have relished the view from opposite sides of the room ,
when you're ready  for the permanent plan you will 
have to crossover to the other side . I know you read me,
like the good book , and when you understand you can
hide it from the world , but not from me , or yourself .
We want full access to the wellspring of life and love , I'm
willing to share the source , but it's a limited partnership (MLP)
on a lifetime plan , but it's riches are infinite and can only
be provided by the source. If you're willing to crossover , 
I'll allow you re-entry and full access ... Love

The One For Eternity And Beyond

I don't know whether I'm in love with her,
Or am I just trying to free myself from being alone, 
I don't want to see her cry, 
I can't even imagine a world without her smile

Is she the One, 
Or is this just another obstacle, 
I don't mind ,
Because nothing's keeping me from her

I see bliss in her eyes, 
And I see her in my future, 
I think this it, 
The truest form of love

May the Master of All Things Himself guide me, 
I beg of You to make me see,
Whether what I'm feeling is true or not,
Or whether I'm just afraid to be alone

Solitude has never bothered me ,
But now I see her and think of it, 
I will lose a long time friend, 
Yes , I will throw away anything for her

For heaven's sake I'd lose everything for this girl, 
She's the bliss I feel every morning,
I see her as a reason for my existence, 
The purest flower in all the fields

I love her, 
And I don't fear love anymore, 
I'm willing to be hers,
If she's willing to be mine

For an eternity I wish to keep her, 
For her I will give her all the stars in the sky,
I love her and I will care for her, 
For all of eternity and beyond.

A Love Story in ABC format

All I will say is how I did my best ever day to say you are my love
Before I go to bed and before I wake up I pray above
Cluing you with the best of my affections that I hope you see
Did you know that everyday I look at you my day is pleasant and that is the key 
Everyone that knows me knows that you are the one for me
Friends and family love you as much as I expect to be
Going forward with all my heart I give you my love unexpectedly
Holding your hand while walking and whispering to your ear I love unconditionally
In my heart I expect in return is a smile of faith
Just when we look into each others eyes in love we bathe
Kindly we speak to each other with passion
Life we have together we love our every hug and kisses in occasions

A song for Vera Rosina

A song for Vera Rosina.

Oh Vera Rosina, I’m writing for you
This sheet filled with magical love
To tell you my feelings that I have for you
As the stars they are shining above
What a wonderful way to spend early mornings
Just penning these songs just for you
It’s five in the morning, I’m writing these words
Cause I love you, sincerely, I do.

You’re my  one only lady, my icon of love
You have everything that I need
And I want to tell you as plain as can be
That I love you, I do, yes indeed
You’re my girl for all seasons, you make my life sweet
How lucky I was, that we two did meet
You give my life worth you give me such joy
You’re wonderful, lovely and sweet.

The sun shines for me, whenever I’m with you
I adore you, and love you so much
I look in your blue eyes that sparkle like diamonds
With your magic, my soul you do touch
I’ll walk with you Darling, till this life is over
Then I’ll wait there in Heaven for you
My queen of all angels, I can’t help but love you
So I’m writing this love song for you.

KALEIDOSCOPE OF GREYS'

Arrogant- wise - domineering - intimidating - stunning - to anyone
Young at 27, but incredibly brilliant and wealthy, that's who I am...

Yet, who could ever think that I have been through black and blues
This bossy autocratic features was once before of soft caring hues
This "sought after millionaire" was once an "erotic sex slave"
But... I bravely stood up, strive and gave all the best I have

Haunted by "childhood nightmares", my mother beaten and bruised
Submission - dominance; bondage - discipline; my "lustful game"
Hard mystery man that I present, yet Ana came and break me loose
Liberating me dearly from my haunting unpleasant past and woos

Never did I imagine, that a simple 21-year-old big - eye college girl,
Fearlessly entering my world, will put me into a beautiful: "love twirl"
I handcuffed her by tapes, ropes and irons but she imprisoned me so tight
Tight with her sweet and selfless love, leaving me all awed and magnified

I am the dark Christian Grey, whose heart and soul, Ana steal...
I will break a leg... Hike the highest peak to be Ana's only shield..

Living In Accordance To God's Will


I won’t be happy with my life, until…
I live in accordance with God’s will!

I need to seek his will, in all that I do!
All that I face in life…  
He’ll see me through!

His will is the best design, that’s in place!
He designed me, because of his grace!

Seeking the will of Jesus,
 gives a peace of mind!
And helps me to be successful
 with my time!

Serving HIM gives my life a true meaning!
It’s in HIS direction,
 that I need to be leaning!

HE is what true joy and peace are about!
He knows my life!  Both inside and out!

Thank you dear God, for being with me!
It is no secret how much you love me!

You are have come, to nourish my soul!
By your will, I’m complete
 and whole!

I bless your name! Forever you are praised!
I shall seek your will!
All of my days!

It's what I do

It’s what I do

There’s something about these early morns
They make me want to write
Each day My heart feels so brand new
That it be my delight
To sit here putting words to paper
As they well up from my soul
Which clears me up. And cleans me out
And make each moment whole

I don’t know really, why I do it
I guess it’s what I do
But I can tell you one and all
It makes me feel brand new
To put this stuff down on a sheet
And know I’ve done it well
Though whether good, or mediocre
I really cannot tell.

I know that I’ll be doing this
Until my dying day
Each morning for so many years
I’ve woke up in this way
‘I’ll write some poems for my wife
That’s what I love to do
And then I’ll watch the dawn come in
Then I’ll write a poem or two

And I’ll write about most anything
I don’t care what it is
I’ll write of love, I’ll write of death
I can only tell you this
Each word that wanders from my pen
Is as true as it can be
It be the way one sees the world
As it comes filtered through me.

Just A Kiss Away

A kiss is more to me then just a kiss
 I long to finally see you,
And place my lips upon yours.
Feeling the Spark of love take us over
All I'd hope for 
You could have gave up on me but still you stayed right here
With a tear of joy 
I felt like a child to candy
 Your sweet lips of wine I long to taste 
It's like a sweet lullabies to my soul 
With just that special kiss you can make the difference 
Just a kiss you will make me whole,
For your kiss will throw all my pain into bliss
So when we finally meet I hope you 
 Will show me the meaning of your love 
In just that single gentle kiss of love

I Owe Everything to Jesus

I Owe Everything to Jesus!

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

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

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

I’ll invite him in?  As my guest!
Then, your life will be totally blessed!

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

“Come unto me.” Is the 
  the master’s call.
Living for him
 is worth it all!

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

I accept and receive him today!
I love him more, than words can say!

PARADOXICAL IMAGES

Dozen of dozens questions, I was carefully asked..
Maybe ten hundreds, I was requested for a shot..
hundreds by hundreds, vivid images rush..
of smiles; of wonders; of glee and of absurbness..

some fantazises..
some beholds..
some envies..
some admires...

leaking in deep embedded trenches..
bombarding waves after waves..
begotten in fusions of vibrancy..
in partition of velocity and gravity..

some is a picture of truthfulness..
some is a picture of falseness..
some is a picture of dramatic eloquence..
some is a picture of authority obedience..

yet underneath a wiseman's eyes..
behind an elder's cleverness..
surely, no one can ever hide..
surely, no one can even deny...

Me

So long my urges have been hidden beneath my desire to be just fitting..
a daunting task that has come to be
Wanting to be just perfect in the eyes of many,
I forgot to be the most important type of perfect, -- to be me

I wanted so much to be seen, seen by many
but in all that
I lost the me I was meant to be

So many things I wanted to be
I just couldn't really come to see what I truly felt 
what I truly wanted to be... I couldn't see the natural beautiful dancer, performer within me.

So many things I am good at
but the things that I love, that flow easily through me
are the things of love, poetry, dance and artistry

I am a creative creature of the light
Fluid and free as the water, to which I truly belong
My home, my solitude, my place of being free, of just being me.

So funny how things occur, when you just let your heart be free
So simple the heart is, while the mind seeks to rather be complex
There must be a balance of these, through the center of our being

With this comes a deep appreciation of self
Appreciation of self comes with complete acceptance of one's self
complete acceptance comes with complete love of self
and complete love of self comes with true understanding of self - compassion for the darkness and gratefulness for the light 
All this leads to the being of me.

Destined to be all I my heart dares to dream
I will be abundant in the spirit life and the physical realm
I will manifest the best that is for me
then bring it to the world to show
how the spiritual life leads to a beautiful bountiful life of heaven on earth

The philosopher in me
is quite intelligent you see
so all this knowledge, all this wisdom gained and to gain
will only set me and you free

The Black Abyss

Sinking in deeper,
No way to escape,
The dark and scary Reaper,
Fore told in the Book of Life.

Is this my end?
Will I ever see the light of day again?
No. My wounds, I must mend.
I must find my strength.

Stand my ground,
Face my fears.
Only then will my voice be found
I must survive.

Break the suffocating chains,
Run from the darkness.
Power will fill my veins.
I will Fight!

Fight the painful names,
The horrid memories,
The demented games 
And escape My Black Abyss.

BATTLES

I cut my hair.
I screamed out loud.
I've scarred my wrist.
And in not proud.
But I'm stuck in this dark place,
my eyes pinched tight.
I'm afraid to step out.
Out into the light.
First my grandpa, 
Then the women I love.
My cousin,
My aunt,
They're resting above.
They all died and now another.
he was so close he could've been my brother.
I'm sick of the doctors.
I'm tired of death.
why can't I forget.
I yelled,
I fought.
I cussed,
I cried.
Sometimes I feel like I died inside.
I hate that God took them. 
I wish he let them stay,
But I'm glad they're now out of their pain.
I wear dark clothes.
And my make up is smeared.
But I miss her hair.
His smell.
His beard.
I'm done with funerals. I'm done with my food.
I want to be with them.
But I don't want to lose.
I won't give in to death. I'll fight my wars like them.
I'll bring the light through this darkness and rain.
I'll survive through this pain...

TWO BECOME ONE

By months, He's younger than her
Don't know which one brighter
All I know they became together
Building a love relationship so tender

She is my eldest blood related sister
I hope she knows, we love her
But since she knows him by a quiver
She wished he'll leave her never

On the fourteenth of this December
On the aisle, they will slowly walk
No second thoughts; no fever
For they are once two now one in tact..

Broken

Are matches useless once they are used

Can love be love if someone's heart is abused

Can you love someone else, if your heart is still bruised...

We are hurt, yes, but not broken...

I wanted to leave her but before i could say it, I would start choking

I'm usually a joker but this time I wasn't joking.

She was once my queen, but I am no more her King.

Empty promises and broken dreams.

I learned a Promise Ring can turn into just a ring.

So a broken song I now sing.

We are hurt, yes, but not broken.

So I keep my chin up and keep hoping.

To meet the one I deserve.

Give her all my heart, even though it's missing a third.

Man's Afflictions And God's Salvation

Man’s Afflictions and God’s Salvation!

I’ve seen and heard of many afflictions!
Things happen in life, that need our attention!

There are things that happen that bring despair.
Wondering if anyone listens or even cares!

There’s a God in heaven who sees what’s wrong!
There are many things that don’t belong!

Evil moves with a power and destructive force!
It comes in many forms, from an ungodly source!

God knows what is happening and offers a plan!
His gift of salvation is freely offered to man!

His ways of living are at odds with this earth!
Anyone can come to Christ,
 and receive a “new birth!”

If life’s heartaches and worries
 are pulling you down…
There’s a new life for YOU! 
Waiting to be found!

Your afflictions, for God’s healing,
 is for you to receive!
Won’t you reach out to him now?
 And simply believe?

His gifts of mercy and hope, is what HE can give!
He can totally transform you! 
 And the way you live!

His salvation, for life’s heartaches, is freely yours!
A new life with Jesus can be true
 and secure!

The Power Of Love

Love is one of life's greatest mysteries
It is the driving force
which shapes man's destiny
It is the very foundation 
upon which life itself is built

Love leads 
life follows
Love is a way of life
One cannot detach oneself from Love
to make a decision
for Love is life itself

Throughout the ages
the power of Love 
has gripped the hearts of men
- mighty men who feared nothing
and made them powerless
to resist its spell

Kingdoms rose and fell
Armies laid others waste
and were laid waste by others
Men died in agony at the command
of a Love-infected leader 
Paris and Helen of Troy
in the Trojan war
Samson and Delilah
in the battle with the Philistines
Anthony and Cleopatra
in the Roman Civil War

Love is a potent force 
that sometimes makes fools
of Earth's mighty men of valour
And yet this same Love 
has been an instrument of good
with which nothing can compare

There are many kinds of love -
a man for his God
a man for his woman
a friend for his friend
a person for his kin
a man for his dog
- these and many more

Though the particular cases differ
the effect of Love is the same
- that feeling which inspires and drives men
to achieve things 
they once believed impossible

Many a knight fought great odds
and won for his lady
Many a man leaves his comfortable niche 
in society
and goes out to endure 
the hardship and pain
of the less fortunate
as he gives of himself unselfishly
to improve their state
because of his love for
his God, duty and ideals

History is filled with leaders
who tried to build 
and maintain an empire
with the might of brute force
and failed -
Charlemagne
Alexander The Great
Julius Caesar
Napoleon Bonaparte
Adolph Hitler

And yet
a humble carpenter of Nazareth
who shunned brute force
and violence
built an empire on Love
two thousand years ago 
and today it covers
the face of the earth

UP TO SUCCESS, WANDERER

Ten thousands I do not have..
Sparkling diamonds unfortunately Im not bestowed as well
Big architectural design homeI don't have as well 
And So I have not also seen much of the world..

However..
What I do have is my family and my friends
What I do have is a mind willing to learn and discover 
What I do have is a heart sensitive to feel and understand...
What I do have is a handful experience

I have loved thee..
With all that I am I did..
Though It did not end to what I want..
Still, I remained hopeful 

As much as, I want to give..
There's a drive I need to control..
As much as I want to show..
There's that voice saying: "careful"

How can I not stop?
If it can be; it might be..
How can I not go on?
If I don't feel the possibility..

Between heaven and hell, it might be..
Over the sun and under the sea, maybe..
I will bravely the risk..
I will courageously seek..

Even if I'm not sure of the result..
Even if I may be place in hot waters..
I must try; I must try..
I must not quit; must not quit..

A Lover's Night

Sparkle sparkle flakes in flight.
Sparkle sparkle crests in white.
Snowflakes falling blowing bright.
Side to side in squalls pressed tight.

Cooling winds from upward gusts.
Frosted ice falls down in thrusts.
Foreheads cold in clammy rusts.
Frozen stiff 'till something busts.

Banks weighed down like heavy flour.
Snowflake pieces charged with power.
Hills and valleys waves that tower.
Simple curves much like a flower.

Dim and hazy light of moon.
Yellow mustard simply strewn.
Calm and quiet for a tune.
A lover's night to make us swoon.

God Speaks Peace to Life's Storms


God speaks peace to life’s stormy seas!
He brings quietness and a “gentle breeze.”

He calms the raging waters and says;
“peace be still!”

He brings victory to the battles within…
And takes away the darkest of sins!

He’s what you need!  This very hour!

He’s our refuge!  
 A present help in trouble!
Though the oceans shake

Why not steer into God’s harbor

He’s is calling you now! 
And knocks at your door!

LOVE IN THE MAKING

months, year, decades in the making..
this may how a love story develops..

sometimes, the girl or guy next to us..
maybe the person of whom we have been waiting for..

frequently and fervently, we pray to God..
that He may let us meet face-to-face him or her..

but, have we also ask ourselves?
If we are doing our part?

blessed are those who accepted the feeling..
with that in one way or another did something..

placing every ounce of effort ..
allotting not just time but the all self..

verbally too easy to say the words..
yet, notionally so hard to demonstrate..

love relationships are put on trials and tests..
at these times, persons involve will willingly work..

whether to stand by what it is..
or turn back and give up..

You Are My Matchless Mate

“You’re my matchless mate”

Kiss me as you never before
Do it much better
That I must ask you for more

But one thing you keep it in your mind
I can never let myself for nasty
So, never plan to go on for dirty

I know, you have devoted yourself to me
But it doesn’t mean
You begin to feel free

You know well who am I
If I’m your heart voice
Then you’re also my elite choice

Though the sun blaze very hot
But when you came in front of it
It cools down on the spot

Whenever I say you’re my flower
You replied, “You’re its scent”.
From others, this thing makes you different

No doubt you’re my matchless mate
In any way and only with you
I have decided to make my fate.

Sitting here in the darkest hour all alone 
thinking of you and me together as one 
When i lay my head down im thinking of you 
When i dream im dreaming of you and me 
When i start to smile i know it's becouse of your sweet way 
When i stop to think of you comeing near by to see me 
I start to think and wonder about you 
Day and night in your arm's i dream 
always of having you here with me your sweet embrace  
Forever i hope to long for 
Never will and never give up faith  
Alway's thinking of you in my arms

EVOLVING LOVE

Before, i believe to love at first sight..
I was so young, easy to excite...
Heartbeats fast, hard to fight..
All colorful, not that white...

While, i am growing old..
Gradually, aside from feelings thinking get involve..
I realize, i began to evolve..
Weighing as day to day, i revolve...

Love seems an untouchable treasure chest..
Waiting to be discovered, nurtured in zest..
Practically, anyone to insist as it exist...
When it land truly, difficult to resist..

Yet, blessed really you are..
If such feeling, land by your arms..
As sometimes, persons wait for a lifetime..
Causing them so so much even a dime..

Bewildered, one may feel..
Let it go, be free to peel..
Not of skin nor of heel..
Rather of heart nothing but real..

I Finally Understand Why

All those times that i got hurt
It seemed like i was destined to be alone...
It seemed like i would never be happy...
I would always get hurt...
I finally understand why...

All those times i cried myself to sleep...
It seemed like noone cared...
It felt like i would always be alone...
I never seen a future with anyone...
I always wanted one but didnt see it...

I couldnt see a light at the end of the tunnel...
I just seen more and more pain...
I seen more hurt...
I finally understand why...

I remember the first day i saw you...
I felt this feeling inside of me that i never felt before...
My life got a lil bit brighter and i didnt even know your name...
I finally understand why...

I finally understand why it never worked out with anyone else...
I finally understand why i never seen a future with them...
I finally understand why my world got brighter the day i first saw you...
I finally understand that feeling i felt inside...

It never worked cause i was meant for you not them...
I didnt see a future with them cause my future is with you...
My world got brighter cause i found my soul mate...
That feeling i felt inside was the feeling of true love...

You are my future 
My light at the end of the tunnel 
My soul mate
You are my princess

Love as long as you Live

live as long as you breath
'cause life is a journey
nobody knows when,
and how it will ends

give as long as you live,
'cause you are not selfish
God wants you to be,
His hand for people to feel

smile as long as you give,
'cause it will be much appreciated
the happy your heart is,
the happier they'll be

be true as long as you smile,
'cause being free is what you are
don't let your soul inside the box
keep your face, up and high

have faith as long as you're true
'cause God lives on you,
even there will be no clue
close your eyes, and you'll feel the proof

love as long as you have faith,
'cause faith without love is fake
feed your heart with love
and that will be the best you'll ever had

love as long as you live . . .

I Just Need The Woman Standin In Front Of Me

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

There’s too much thinking going on in my head
I need to try something different instead
Get myself to move on 
Don't think I’m too far-gone
You made me aware right under this tree 
To stop wasting time on my current spree
Learn to enjoy what’s right in front of me

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
Know it’s cliché 
But it doesn't pay..
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I just need the woman standin’ in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Life's so good every day I can see
Something wonderful lookin’ back at me
Don't really know how
But I embraced the now
Every moment missed is something great
It’s right in front of us, have a little faith
Come-on, don't’ make life too tough
Take a moment to enjoy, it’s really great stuff
It’s great stuff

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
Know it’s cliché
But it doesn't pay..
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

She’s standin’ right in front of me..
Going to try
To be the best me I can be
And know the reason why
All my life

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
I Know it’s cliché 
But it doesn't pay...
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I just need the woman standin’ in front of me 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

NOT ONLY IN DREAMS

Moon and stars dazzles with their light
With you in my dreams, a more delight

Soft huge pillows secured on my arms
With you in my dreams, I'm unharmed

Smooth satiny sheets to give me comfort
With you in my dreams, a sweet cheesy effort

I whispered to God with you is my forever
Not only in dreams is my evening prayer..

The Sacrificial Lamb

Dependable Defender Jesus Christ of Nazareth Football Club

This morning lost His appeal for the red card He received

During His side game with the highly rated Pharisees

He’ll therefore be unavailable for their match against the Sadducees


He was sent off by referee Pontius Pilate

For a massacre on Principalities and Powers

The Club failed to have the decision overturned by the Jurisdiction

He is therefore sentenced to death by crucifixion


The ‘Special One’ is to make no comment on the decision

After Herod Disciplinary Committee dismissed the club’s appeal

Jesus has offered Himself as a sacrificial lamb for a collective guilt

On the club’s recent sloppiness and wilt


The stalwart defender’s Penalty

Will begin with a physical torture

Followed by carrying a heavy rugged cross

Is the Disciplinary Committee right? Make your gloss


GLOSSES FOR JESUS THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB:

Lucas writes, March 28th…2:17

A typical Herod Decision!

I think the decision needs a Revision!


 Chris writes, March 28th….2:19

Oh! JC What a wish!

One rule for the rich!

One rule for the poor!

Herod is a force majeure!


Sir Billy writes, March 28th….3:15

Corrupt official! Corrupt leader

All they care is 30 pieces of silver


Major Buckley writes, March 28th…3:17

HE CAN’T GO AWAY WITH IT!

CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM! I submit


Janet writes, March 28th…..4:17

Oh NO! This looks like a JOKE!

Oh my God what a YOKE!


Wolf writes, March 28th….5:15

The blame must lay with McCarthy and McCoy

Surely it’s their fault not Jesus. Sorry boy!


Frank writes,March 28th….. 6:17

You’re an idiot’s wolf!

This Jesus should go play golf!

Crucify Him sir! Crucify Him! I rest my case


Melvin writes, March 28th…7:17

I think they can’t rescind many of the red cards

Because it would highlights the refs as nothing but land guards

A REACHABLE HAPPINESS

Happiness, you are an endless pursuit
Everyone wants and likes you full
Exactly no one where you are
Your "cost" even no one knows

Abounding penny and richness
Signature brands of clothing
Dazzling priced jewels and gems
High technological tools and gadgets

Are they the ones that gives true happiness?

Each persons struggles to work
Competition a cyclic phenomena
Continuum courses to improve
All these, an avoidance of being poor

At the end, attaining all these..
Permit me to ask you..
Are they also the ones that gives happiness?
Maybe it does gives happiness

But how long?
How genuine?

Reality speaking, some have these
But they are not really happy
Some feels the lost and emptiness 
Above all, some feels longingness

Happiness is frantically been within reach
It has always been within reach
Found basically in your ownself and others
Ponder and tell, if do you believe so?

The Contest

Of course, as soon as a new poetry contest was posted I had to immediately enter.  In this 
contest, you had to email the sponsor to get your own, unique theme.  

Off went my email; back came her reply: “Write a poem about what inspired you to write 
poetry.”

She even included one of her poems as a sample of what she was looking for.  A beautiful 
poem indeed; relaying the story about how her Grandmother inspired her to write.  

So, I tried to emulate her with my story.

I wrote a poem about my football coach who taught me real men can write poetry without 
feeling emasculated.  A nice poem, albeit, total fiction.

I penned a verse about my first love encouraging me to write about our romance and how 
the subsequnt breakup inspired me to write about the sorrow of love lost.  A passionate and 
beautiful poem, although pure BS.

I rhymed the touching story about how my mother, on her deathbed, confessed that she 
knew I was writing poetry by reading my secret journal for years.  Her last words to me 
were to follow my passion and write poems for her in heaven.  Problem is, my mother is 
alive and well and has never shown any interest in reading my poems.

The fact of the matter is, I cannot pinpoint a moment in time; a person; or, an experience 
that inspired me to write.

Just as I need no inspiration to breathe in order to stay alive; I write poetry as a reflexive, 
survival instinct.

Just as I need no inspiration to eat in order to satisfy my hunger; I write poems to placate 
my yearning inside.

Just as I need no inspiration to dream when I close my eyes at night; words, rhymes and 
stories fill my mind whenever I find a moment of peace in my hectic day.

Whereas, I envy those who know where their inspiration came from, I am less blessed with a 
birth of inspiration and am more cursed with an innate need to write.

In my email to the sponsor, I bragged how I was up to the challenge, but, alas, she 
presented me with a theme I cannot relate to.

I will continue to breathe words of poetry through my keyboard.
I will continue to nourish my hunger through prose.
And, I will continue to dream in rhyme and meter.

But, I have no story to wow you with about what motivated me to do so in the first place.

The irony in all of this?  After admitting this truth about myself to a complete stranger in an 
otherwise meaningless contest, I am inspired to continue to feed my curse and write poetry 
forever more.

Thanks…damn you.

Is Your Foundation of LIfe Being Destroyed

Is Your Foundation of Life Being Destroyed? Very seldom do I hear any complaints. Regarding the lacking of moral restraints. It seems like many are under some kind of a "spell." What's right or wrong? Many can't even tell! Where are the moral leaders this nation needs? As the heart of this nation continually bleeds. Many churches provide very little discretion. Pretending to be Godly… Yet little Biblical direction! No wonder many people don't know what to believe. A lifestyle of lying, drugs and sex is what they achieve. In their lives, they have no "moral boundary." Many carrying a load of "dirty laundry." To those of you who want satisfaction and victory too... There is a "moral compass" that's freely offered to you! " God's word is a solid foundation! Which speaks of HIS love and his gift of salvation! If your life is filled with hurt, and has no true meaning. It's in the direction of Jesus you need to be leaning! You don't have to live in despair and defeat! Jesus' grace and love can make you complete! By Jim Pemberton

STAY ON CHEER

These pass years, I have been in a quest..
There are times I want to stop but I guess..
If steps and risks aren't taken, I'll be waste..
Thus, I try and try slowly not in haste..

To become a Saint, one must be chaste..
To become a hero, must death be faced?
To become renown, must fame be chase?
However, to be love, must one be on same race?

Building long lasting & steadfast relationships..
Will require from you more than stewardship..
Even more than a deal of companionship..
And more than just friendship..

It takes the right time...
Sometimes months extending to years..
Or a whole of a lifetime..
Only God knows yet stay on cheer..

Captured

Enraptured.

Captured!

This feeble heart can take no more,
yet it thirsts for love that shakes the core!

Your power throws me to the floor.

I remember how I felt when you walked through my door-
your love so deep, I might die if I take anymore.



But that'd be okay, because i'd be with the one whom I adore.

There's No Greater Love Than to Lay Down Your Life


There’s No Greater Love Than This… 

There’s no greater love, than to lay down 
your life for your brother…
God’s commandment reminds
 us to love one another!

God gave us this challenge as a principle set before us.
But too many times, we let things
 “come in between us.”

I can think of many situations that arise from the past.
Can often cause heartaches, that continue to last.

Is it really worth it?  To allow hard feelings within?
That cause hard feelings between your brother and friend?

It’s about time we try to apply God’s word.
And focus on God’s forgiveness, 
that must be heard!

The greatest love ever given, was Christ’ death on the cross.
He laid down his life for us…  
Whatever it cost!

Let’s come together and focus on what Christ gave us!
No matter what we’ve done, he already forgave us!

An example of God’s love through us, must be evident.
A Godly compassion in each of us must take residence!

Please come Lord Jesus, and stir a compassion in our soul!
And walk in your love that will make us whole!

There’s no greater opportunity,
 than the example Christ has given!
May we walk as his example of love, 
each day we’re livin’!

But A Whisper Pt 1

                                              But a Whisper From the Childs perspective
                                                              Part 1 of 2
                                           
In my minds’ eye this life that I see is my very own upon your knee.
While I was in heaven in the heart of God waiting to be born,
I was full of excitement anticipating I wanted a Mother to adore.

I wanted a Mother to hold me tight, safe within her arms.
Raise me good give me love and keep me safe from harm.

I wanted a mother, who’ll bounce me on her knee, 
And give me sweet candy and kisses.
And when I’m away, on her mind I’ll stay, for it’s me she always misses.

A Mother to shape and mold me to be all I can be.
So when I’m older and out in the world I can make her proud of me.

A Mother to teach me of kool-aid and Jesus, baseball and football too.
A Mother that I can look at and say, I wanna be just like you.


I’ve had lots of time to think about what I want to be.
But I have the strangest feeling the worlds not ready for me.

So I must go back to the heart of God and stay for a little while,
But that’s ok for I have seen my dear sweet Mommas smile.

In my minds I you kissed me but a moment, A lifetime in a flash.
Although I knew you but a whisper, forever your memory will last.

Moonlit Path

There’s hidden in the lunar glow
Enchanting hues not seen by eyes
Infused within the shimmered flow
Where winsome hopes might shed their guise

The path we used to walk by day
Emotes of you and glows sublime
As muted light starts its ballet
Disjoining realms and bending time

I’ll find you there my dearest love
As moonlight’s gleam unveils a trace 
Your spirit that has moved above
Still whispers soft through moon’s embrace

Chioce

It can be easy to give into depression and sadness.
 
It's always knocking on the door
Staring in the window
Hiding in the closet 
Laughing in the mirror
Laying in the bed
 
but I prefer happiness and love
 
She is sharing her heart
She is looking into my eyes
She is smiling in my direction
She knows who I am. . . and still,
She is always there for me

There's Sweetness In the Name of Jesus


Jesus… Your name brings sweetness 
on my tongue!
My soul soaks in your love…
Like a dry sponge!

My soul continues to hunger
 and thirst!
Until I let you reign in my life!
Always first!

I give my life to you!
On my knees I yield!
YOU are my rock, fortress
 and shield!

You’re my protection!
A sure foundation!
For only in you is there 
TRUE salvation!

Love is there

Love is there 

When you are happy 
To feel your heart’s space
beautifully decorated
love is there smiling proudly
will her works that evokes
body and soul

when drops of tears
wetting the window of your heart
love is there
submerged in
wallow grief 
still waiting faithfully
with cares

when clouds come rolling
Hurricane struck the reef kink
tide drown hopes
love is there
remained with the softness
as a savior angel

no need your searching
in the form of words, verses or sounds
love is there
present in the vibrations
in your deepest soul
tore your heart
offering the crown 

The love is there
living for himself
share everything
but don’t expect any provision

even if it’s asleep
like calm waves
always ready to flare up in a surge 
divide the ocean heart

though it died
laments not need it
let your heart wings
paved the way for him
dont die with it
because
love is there
wanted his own way
in victory
in the rigidity

recalls what love wants you
just carving trail hugs
chase it’s shadow
because the love still
with you
acknowledge its existence
the love is there

God Brings LOVE and KINDNESS


  

God is merciful, with love and kindness!

He brings his majesty,

 in wholesome brightness!

 

He is powerful and his holiness

 he brings!

He is omnipotent and rules

 over everything!

 

All praise and glory through

 Jesus his son!

He’s brought victory over sin! 

 The battle is won!

 

Let’s give him our hearts

 and make it clear…

The return of our Lord 

draws ever so near!

 

Without God here to help us,

 what would we do?

His promises are his assurance, 

and always true!

 

Thank you God for the life

 I’ve received!

You’ve given me hope

 and a reason to believe!

 

By Jim Pemberton   06/27/13

 

 

 

 

 How I Love God!

 

 God…  You never fail!

 I will trust you!

With my lips,  I shall 

praise you!

 

Though others leave and forsake me…

I know that God is here…  

And is with me!

 

If my life comes

 to a “grinding halt…”

Joy and peace inside of me…

God has brought!

 

When others criticize me 

for honoring God’s name…

I know that one day, 

 HE will put them all to shame!

 

God is all I’ll ever need,

 and much more!

It is HIM that I praise, 

worship and adore!

 

 I offer to God a heart 

of thanksgiving!

For everything he’s done…

 And the love he’s giving!

 

God meets my every need!  

The all sufficient one!

All praise and glory through 

Jesus Christ…  His son!

Make Love To Me In That Ancient Place -Silent Love

           Make Love To Me In That Ancient Place - (Silent Love)

My love and I are from another world
We came from a cave or well
Well within ourselves so deep
That poured purity of being within, creating skin
We now can touch each other in the fever
This all took time of course
It formed thousands of miles beneath the earth
With molten red desire moving over passion
Over mountains rolling to create our souls
Forming love itself
At God’s command, from simple elements, He gave us hands
To hold and love each other
To bond with nature in the secret sacred garden 
No other world or living thing distracts us
The hidden love so silent on the soundless kiss
It could not be missed by anyone but us
The fabric of life is there still measured
Clinging to each other
Glowing in the dark
In that ancient place

Finding The Beauty Of Someone

No two people are thesame,
So you need to take the time,
To get to know each person,
And discover them for who,
They really are on the inside,
For they might have an inner beauty,
That withstands among anyone else's,
Which makes them who they are,
And you may fall in love with them,
If you don't judge them,
By their outside,
People have an unusual thing,
About each and everyone of us,
So taking the time to build a foundationWith someone is a special moment,
that should charish with time,So don't rush into things with anyone,
And always take your time,
To discover them for who they really are,
Then you can build a true foundation,
That will last thoughout the years.

Lord Examine My Heart And Mind


Test me, O Lord, and try me.  
Examine my heart and mind!
I trust you o Lord.  
You’re so loving and kind!

Your love is ever before me,
 I shall walk in your truthful ways!
It is my prayer and desire
 to honor you all of my days!

I will not sit with deceitful men, 
or those hypocritical of your name!
You are the God who is powerful!  
And will bring them all to shame!

I shall proclaim aloud of your praise,
 and tell of your wonderful deeds!
For you have given me everything, 
 And supplies all of my needs!

I love the house where you live, O Lord, 
and where your glory dwells!
I am thankful for you! And love you more
 than words can tell!

hearts paid to break.

How Do I Know That I've Been Blessed

How Do I Know That I’ve Been Blessed? How do I really know that I’ve been blessed? Throughout life, I’ve tried to receive the “best!” I’ve experienced the pleasure of “good things.” And have received whatever joy they may bring! But whatever I’ve tried, even if it’s brand new… They don’t always give the “pleasure” they promise to do! There’s many things, I thought had “blessed” me. But they end up greatly disappointing me! Wherever I go… And the many places I’ve been... Their “attraction,” always come to an end! The true blessings in life are not what I’ve achieved. Or the great many things that I have received! The real blessings that I have recently discovered… Is asking for the blood of Jesus, to have my life “covered!” His blood can bring a true cleansing deep within… And brings me the joys of being BORN AGAIN! The blessings of God, is what I need to surround me! For I once was utterly lost! But Jesus found me! Glory to God! For the eternal blessings he’s given! He’s totally changed me! And the way I’m livin’! I know that I am blessed! For Christ lives in me! I’m building up treasures… For eternity! By Jim Pemberton

Jesus Christ Went Above And Beyond! Jesus Christ went above and beyond! He forgave all of my sins and wrongs! He loved me! When nothing else mattered! He picked me up, when my life was chattered!

His eternal “life insurance!” He’s given me strength, and all I needed! With all that he’s given, my life is completed! He rescued me from the awful pit of sin. And brought hope to my life, once again! He’s given me a love, that I never had! I gave him my life! I am so glad! To Jesus… I’m forever thankful and grateful! He’s my guiding light, and an awesome example! His word helps me to have victory today! And guides me, along life’s narrow way! This same Jesus can do the same for you! The opportunity is here!

Jesus Please Use Me

Here I am Jesus!  Please use me!
I know that you’ll never refuse me!

I ask you to fill me with your compassion…
Even if this seems “old fashioned!”

This world is lost and dying without you!
There’s so many that really need you!

May I be an instrument in reaching out…
This is what being your child is all about!

You are the potter...  I am the clay.
Please give me the words to say!

Touching others, I know is your will!
May I listen to your spirit, and be still.

Teach me to be your light, as I go along.
In your arms of strength, I do belong!

May others be stirred from God above…
Help me to be an example of your love!

To be used by God is an honor and joy...
HE gives eternal life for all to enjoy!

Out There We Are



We are the ordinary..
We are the simple...
We are the thousand petaled lotus flower... blooming  with extraordinary grace
We unfold with all passions power...
We are the ancestors...kissing the Earth...touching the sky.. feeling the heart 
of our infinite universes, We the gods are inside out...

Love is Bright

Lost in lust, I believed that true love was blind;
in reality I reminisce Love so bright, in a gem--rare to find.

Do You Treat Others As Christ Would


Do you think of yourself…,
But not others?
Do you take the time
for your sisters and brothers?

The way that you live, 
people may wonder.
Is there a tendency to,
 put some “down under?”

You don't know everyone’s problems…. 
Don’t act as if you do.
Only God knows their hearts...  
Not you!

Jesus loves everyone A LOT!
Pray for others and
 think Godly thoughts!

Didn't the same Jesus die 
both for you and me?
Will those you meet, 
have a home in eternity?

Don't give up on people….  
We all deserve a chance!
We should love one another...
 beyond any "circumstance."

How will you treat others…,
 When all seems lost?
Christ left the 99 sheep to find
 the one which was lost.

Often, the "unlovable people" 
need love and attention...
If being a Christ follower, 
is truly your intention...

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!

The Minister's Son

Once in a place on a top of a hill
Lies an oak tree the stood there still
Under that is a boy I know in pain
All wet because of his tears and the rain.

He swears he’ll never fall in love again
No more heartache that happened back then
But I do hope that he is wrong
Cause my heart screams we both belong.

He does not know I know the things he loves
From what he hates and what he wants to have
I know his favorite food, number, and song
He does not know I had him memorized for so long.

He loves things that the color is blue
He loves to tease me but never will argue
He loves to play basketball once a week or twice
He loves to eat ham soaked in vinegar and rice.

He loves places that are peaceful and quiet
He wants things to work out like what he had set
He is quiet and does not talk a lot
He wears v-neckline shirts that make him look so hot.

Nobody else knows what he does best
Playing guitar is his greatest asset
I know his hometown, where he came from
And I love it when he plays the drums.

Yes that guy is the one I love
He’s the one that I have been dreaming of
He’s my life, my love and no other than
The man in black the minister’s son.

believe them

believe them
the ones,
those people who saw
(the ones who did not conquer-
the Julius creaser want-a-be
the ones who wasted years of precise time-to prove absolutely nothing,
believe their stories.
(the poets, they have stories you wouldn't even believe,
    -but they are all true.
the sun rises on the people of today,
but it the sun has just set on the lonely poet
who tells stories on and on
but no one is listening-
listen you want-to-be little girl,
you gangster want-to-be little boy
and learn of the troubles those once want-to-be became of themselves
     -nothing is more true than yourself
so do not be like no one else,
be your own Creaser and your own god
your own ruler and your own peasant,
be your own person
as God intend you to be

believe those poets who were once fools in love
believe those poets who write mumbo-jumbo on a piece of scrap paper
with a beaten down pencil
and listen to their cries and see their tears, soil those pieces of paper
and shed a tear or two with them(its okay)
to be your own heart and soul is the best of your abilities
      -you may think you have love- till a glass heart is broken
then you shall turn on the world,
but before you leave in a suicide rage
believe those poets who were before you,
with hearts fragile and thin like glass and a blade of grass
believe that they weren't in a rage as well,
believe that they write of experience and not just to write and pass time away;
     (those strong boulders called "men" have hearts of glass too-
      and those women, who walk down the street sighing, have cracked hearts-
pain and hardship is just not for you
its only for everyone, who has a heart-
poets, painters, boys, girls, flowers and ferns all have hearts
and we all share pain and love

the time when you cry
read a story of heartbreak and think,
think of those before you and believe them
for they know what they're talking about
and they have experienced those heartaches first-hand
and love yourself and be your own kind of unique
(live laugh love hope and cherish that of which you were given
and show yourself and others you can rise-
and you can rise and be the king or queen of your own Destiny !

Love rocks people sucks

 I am tired of people making excuses
 And giving love a bad name
 When they lie, cheat, be unfaithful 
 Then say love is to blame

 Love is really inspirational
 And love is pure and innocent
 Its god’s gift to mankind
 From heaven true love was sent

 Loneliness, rejections, betrayal hurts
 Some confuses these with love when hurting
 But love is the only thing that takes away the pain
 And makes us breathe and feel alive again

 Love is the most beautiful, amazing feeling
 If can make you fly like an eagle so high
 Love is the reason we wake in the morning
 Love only bring tears of joy to your eyes

 They say that love is blind
 But that is not true
 In fact love can see quite well
 It’s why it bring me to you

 Life is a lot of hard work 
 And love gives us strength to continue
 Love shines a light on the future
 And plays a big part in all that we do

 But some use love to hurt others
 Some hearts are made of stone
 And blame it on love 
 When they are miserable and alone

 Love is just a game to others
 And for some love is everything 
 Some say I love you, just to use you
 And we blame love when in pains

 Crying, cursing, condemning love
 But never blame the person who sucks
 For giving love a bad name
 Because in true honesty Love really rocks

 Love never hurt any one
 Its people who hurt people everyday
 Love is not the reason there is pain
 Love only comes to take the hurting away

 Love is a blessing on us
 Love is not a prison, rather a bond
 Love is honest, strong and magical
 That makes two hearts beats as one

 Life is like a ship on a voyage 
 Taking us to the edge of the unknown
 And the seeds that we have planted 
 Won’t always be the fruits that’s grown

 And people will continue
 To abuse the meaning of love
 But when some one truly loves us
 It’s our gift from the heavens above

 Love stays with you against all odds 
 For true love is for infinity
 I wish to be hug by the girl I love
 From now until eternity

 When we will find our self’s alone
 Standing out on jagged rocks
 Just remember not to blame love
 For love rocks and people sucks

I'm happy

I’m happy with the person that cares about me

     I’m happy with the person that keeps me safe
   I’m happy with the person that protects me with his life
  I’m happy with the person that makes me smile everyday

 I’m happy with the person that tells me jokes everyday
I’m happy with the person that shows his feelings everyday
   I’m happy with the person that has a kind heart

        I’m happy that I have my fiancé in my life

Things go wrong

Love hurts and people change. Things go wrong and things get strange. But life goes on and you only life it once. Be strong cause things will get better over the months. I thought I was heartbroken, I thought you were my world. You fooled me though, made me think I was your only girl. But all along, you didnt care. Im not sure, your were even completely there. But now I've moved on, when I thought it was impossible. I had to be the bigger person in this breakup, I was responsible. I let it get to me, but I didnt let it ruin me completely. I didnt do anything about the hurt you caused me, I acted so sweetly. I let you walk all over me, I tried to ignore how you disrespected me. But when I ended things, the pain was easier to see.

The Woods Softly Beckon

The Woods Softly Beckon

The woods beckon my soul to fly
always they have but I ask why
Perhaps a father's love they give
to bring joy as I strive to live

The golden silence in wooded air
takes away every troubling care
Invisible mists cloaks their gifts
beauty that forever, forever uplifts

The woods send me on a great trip
a wine to ever so slowly , calmly sip
A marvel to visit and simply behold
a fine victory for the brave and bold

The views that Nature has crafted
which my soul seeks to be grafted
A spell shoots so sweetly into me 
when surround by the beauty of trees!

BRAVER: THAT I WILL BE

giggling swaying around carelessly...
i feel my life in a state of fantasy...
few days before, i recall..
i swear, i thought i be in a downfall...

grateful and hopeful, i am..
glancing around seeing miracles charm..
God must have opened the door..
thus, encouraging me to follow...

it is not of my own accord..
to my God, i trust He mark in record...
i do not have the energy to hoard..
i know my spirit is of valor...

faithfully, i will face all obstacles..
'cause i'm not here to crackle..
rather, i must in the Name of my God spArkle..
He has His love and blessings sprinkled...

Let Me Be Your

Let me be your angel
Let me heal your pain
when there is a drought
Let me be your rain.

Let me be your helper
Let me be your friend
When there is a beginning
Let me not have an end

Let me be your guide
Let me take your hand
when you are an ocean
Let me be the sand

Let me be a thought
Let me into your mind
when you need an answer
Let me be on one you find

Let me be your angel
Let me be the voice that sings
when you're ready to fly
Let me give you wings.

CAUGHT BY YOU

I glance at you
I saw you giving a cue
I walk slowly towards you
Seeing you a little blue
I tried to hold on your hand
Smile, I saw you extend
Wink and smile I replied too
As I feel a spark land
We have conversation
Oh my!!!
We are quite a unison
Unbelievably, same likes
Good, we don't look alike
As time runs so fast
We didn't want to last..
Nevertheless, we parted
With distance we parted..
But we remain in contact..
As we exchange numbers back..
Maybe God blessed that day
When we met along the alley
Now, I feel
Faith and fate might be real..

Inspiration

    What is it you do ,what do you write,
what words are there in your heart?
What thoughts are there in your mind?
Do feelings and the works that are eternal ,
come from the soul,the mind ,the heart..
Surely there was an inspiration,
to guide that hand as it penned a masterpiece.
If inspiration be of Love,
and that same Love cease to be.
If inspiration rides on the wings of loneliness,
and of a sudden there is happiness..
Will a strong heart write a humorous ditty,
as tears roll down their cheeks.
Thankyou friends who write while in turmoil,
post humor when saddened,
capture Love while alone.
Paint life that has yet to be lived.
Give all to the emotion of typing that next word,
for sharing a small piece of yourselves..........Jim

IF WORDS COULD EVER EXPLAIN

All from the beginning 
Almost a year of pains 
All the early sickness 
Everything from sleepless night
To kicks in the stomach 
From nights of torture 
To nappy changing 
All the cuddling 
The joy of fist words to first steps 
Could words ever explain 
My gratitude.

All you gave me 
Unconditional love you gave 
Your undying love to date 
Through thick and thin by my side 
All the support and courage you gave 
But words could never explain 
What you really mean

House could never be a home without you 
Family could never be complete without you 
You’re a role model 
You’re heroine 
You’re everything

In my eyes nothing compares to you 
In my eyes your love and care is endless 
Because you’re the best 
Keep on mother As the saying goes 
'Mmangwana o swara thipa ka bogaleng' 
‘Mother grasps a knife by the blade.’

Jesus Wants to Be YOUR Lord

 
Jesus wants to be your lord! 
In all that you do!
He desires this, because of his love 
for YOU!

He’ll be there for you, 
when help is needed!
He’ll bring the victory, 
when you feel defeated!

Whosoever will, can receive the life he gives!
He’s so patient, kind and willing to forgive!

Won’t you make Jesus the focus 
of your attention?
He’ll turn your life around!  
Into a Godly direction!

He’s our righteousness!  He is everything!
He’s the master of the heavens!  
And can do anything!

Won’t you accept his invitation? 
 And listen to his call?
Won’t you invite him in, to be the lord of ALL?

He’s the answer to your problems!
And whatever you need!
Why not give his spirit,
 the opportunity to lead?

Please come Lord Jesus,
 and be our Lord today!
Please come and lead us
 into your righteous way!

What A Wonderful Savior

What a wonderful savior,

He picked me up, when my life

What an awesome Lord, I

What an example in him,

It was for us all,  that Christ 
chose to die for!

What a joy and happiness, 
to my heart, he brings!
He gives me a reason to live,

What an opportunity you have,

Won’t you confess your sins?  
And bow before him?

What a wonderful gift!  
You can receive his salvation!
The past can be gone!  
You can be a NEW creation!

THE SECRET OF A HAPPY MARRIAGE

Through heartaches tears, I've shed over all
Our years together, no regrets have I for vowing,
My soul to unite with yours, my love.
For in sickness, or in health did we so swear
Our everlasting devotion, as equal partners
To cherish one another always, and here
We two remain sustaining one  another.
A balance of equals, in this scale of life
Giving, taking and communicating, is the
Secret to a happy marriage. 
When failures hardships. came our way,
Four hands held together as one, 
Cradling our young until we could
Fair better winds of the futures promise.
United than we set outwards at full sail, as
To give our children an easier passage forwards.
Behold they are the next generation's legacy.
Warriors of the heart are we, my husband
And life mate, I've fallen at times and you've
Picked me upwards, and smiled telling me
It's ok babe, I'm still here beside you. and
 I will be so always.
I've lost my temper, and threaten, cursing up
A hails storm of rages anger, but you just
Laughed, and embraced me, telling me it's 
Ok everything will turn out fine.
Through dirty socks, and missed meals takeouts,
I've held the home front together. while you've
Worked two jobs at one time, but late at night,
My world began, as you held me within your
Sweet loving arms.
Would I do it all over again, if I knew than
What I know now, you better believe it my friend.
For in life I've learned one thing is true,
That is the love this man bars for me is real.
And for this alone, I'd say I do all over again.
For love such as ours is a rare treasured gift,
A blessings miracle, given to only a few,
And I'm lucky enough to have found him,
And no power in heaven or in hell would 
I give him up for, because you see without
A doubt, I do so love him, always.

Jesus Is GOOD NEWS


Jesus Christ Is GOOD NEWS!

I want you to know, that Jesus Christ
 is GOOD NEWS!
Without him, in your life… 
 You will LOSE!

He’s alive today! And brings tidings
 on great joy!
All of his blessings.  
He really wants you to enjoy!

He is the difference, in a world 
“turned upside down!”
He’s there to help, when life comes 
“crashing around!”

The good news, is that he reigns,
 in his awesome power!
He is a mighty fortress, 
and a strong tower!

He reigns in heaven, with the earth 
beneath him!
And is waiting for me and you,
 to receive him!

Won’t you allow this good news to change you?
And allow his sweet love to “rearrange” you?”

He wants to do glorious and
 beautiful work in you!
It is no secret how much
 he really LOVES YOU!

Excitement - Full Version

My head feels dull.
Not even “comfortably numb”.
No mood for rhyme
Yet must cast my soul
Back through time.

No.
No more rhyme.
Just cast my mind back.
Seek that spark.
Call out my Muse.
Be inspired.
Excited.
Yes. 

Excitement shines
Like a billion suns.
The merest touch
Explodes
My every nerve.

Magical mysteries
Unveil themselves.
Brilliant, fluttering butterflies
Flash and flicker
Those rainbow colours and more.

Deep inspiration.
Adrenaline rush.
Electrical discharge.
Cascading sweat.

Thunder-drummed tornadoes.
Lightning storms.
Rose tinged dawns,
And silver-ghosted Moons.

Inspirational volcanoes
Of Muse-blown delight.
That’s how it was,
To be in Love.

Would You Be Ready If Christ Came Today


Would You Be Ready, If Christ Came Today? Are you one who’s ready for Christ' return? The way you’re living... Are you concerned? Many try to find a love that will last... But outside church, their spiritual candle burns out fast. Many believe they're doing good and “o.k.” As long as they give a little time and pray. Many have God's word and don’t know the verses. You can see their Bible on Sunday, underneath their purses! A sense of excitement stirs each morning. But many fail to heed God's somber warning. Without holiness, no one shall enter God's throne. If Jesus came today... Would you be left alone? God knows the heart of man is wicked deep within. That's why Jesus said: “YOU MUST be born again.” Be separate from the world's wicked and sinful ways. “Be ready for my coming,” is what Jesus says. At God's house, his divine judgement shall start. Live for Jesus NOW! Love him with all of your heart! Keep this important thought in mind... If Jesus came today... Would you go, or be left behind? By Jim Pemberton

Motivation

 I awake one morning
 And couldn’t find my poets pen
 All I had was a plain peace of paper
 So I tell my self I will not write again
 
 My mind were full of ideas 
 But how can I express them
 And when I sad I will stop writing
 friends think I had some kind of problem

 I needed to find my way back
 But I had no inspirations
 I keep having too many setbacks
 I seem to run out of motivations

 At times we will lose our motivation
 We are just humans after all
 But doesn’t because mean we stumble a lot
 We must take for granted we will always fall

 There, s a lot pressures on us all
 A student who’s worried for a test result
 Or a father who’s son was bullied so bad
 And will for ever think it was his fault

 Every one cant be a doctor or lawyer
 who will make the eggs and sausage
 Now all can be all a pilot or Wall Street executive
 Because who will pick up our garbage

 Every one of us starts with a dream 
 We all sets out with a life quest
 And we have this fire burning in out hearts
 And we won’t stop till we are the best

 But we are just flesh and blood
 We might stumble, fall and lost our way
 But No one in the world is perfect
 So let’s get up and try another day

 Forget the mistakes of the past
 For greater achievements awaits you.
 Look at the sunny side of everything
 And make your optimism comes true

 For After the sun goes down, 
 The moon and stars comes out
 We must never lose our hopes 
 And in our hearts we will keep no doubts

 I have the best friend in the world
 And she is my sauce of inspiration
 Just knowing she’s part of my life
 Has given me so much motivation

 So I start to write poems again
 Using an old broken pen
 And just like my love for her
 The words of my poems will never end

 It’s okay to fall and fall again
 It’s not the end of the world
 For as long as you keeping getting up
 You have motivation in your soul

Real Woman

Everyday I behold in your eyes
Love,care and understanding.
As the day wears away
Curiosity brings me even closer.

As the sun moves gradually
Towards its heavenly abode,
The sky looks blue and alluring
in all its blessedness.

As I drink endlessly from God's own beauty
Your lovely face appears again from
behind the clouds and what do I see?
tenderness,loyalty,honesty,generosity

Ride on in your majesty!
You are a real woman!

Samson of the Bible


Samson Of the Bible From the Bible, is the story of Samson. He lived an incredible life that really happened! He was to be a Nazrite, and set apart! His hair was to grow long, from the start! He was to deliver Israel from their enemy throughout! This was what his mission was all about! He destroyed the lion and bear with his bare hands! And sent burning foxes throughout the enemy lands! He destroyed a thousand! With the jawbone of an ass! God had given him such an incredible task! With his strength, came temptation’s call! And soon, his whole life took a fall! The strength from God had departed from him! Now, there was no one who could help him! Ridiculed and mocked, he became a slave. He couldn’t free himself, no matter what he gave. He was brought before the Philistine’s temple. Mocked and whipped to set as an example. He cried out to God, for help that hour… God gave him the strength and the power! The temple came crashing down all around him! Now, there was just rubble that surround him! May this be a lesson, that speaks to me and you! God is not fooled, no matter what we try to do! We can act like we have everything we needed! Without God, our life is never completed! May we not compromise what God has given! And walk in his strength, each day we’re livin’! By Jim Pemberton

As long as I trust him,

Anything he has for me…

Whatever HE wants me to do…  I want to do it!
He’s given me many chances.  But “I blew it!”

What HE wants to give to me…  
I want to receive it!
He promises to always be with me!  
 I believe it!

All that I have…  I give to Jesus my king!
He’s my righteousness! 
My everything!

No matter what I may posses…
Or what I own…
I know that one day, I’ll be 
in Christ’ eternal home!

Right next to me

I was holding the wheel,
hoping that your eyes 
were on the map.
That you knew the 
direction, we were 
supposed to take.
That we would end 
up in the right place.
But your sight gave,
you put the map down,
and we ended up lost.
It was okay, though. 
The only destination 
I ever really needed
was in the passenger
seat, right next to me.

The Pastor's wife

She holds his hand
In support she takes his stand
She holds his fears
Inside her tears
When she cries for her man
Who inhabits a spiritual land.

She winces at his pain
When flesh and blood fail him
Again and again
And the critical arctic blasts
That bring a coldness in his soul
Try to freeze his bones until they cannot move.

The headlights flow into each other
Heading home after locking the late night door
He stares down the headlights
Then looks into the future
Across the centre, she holds his tired hand again
Knowing the highway will never end.

The curtains light up again 
She puts a brew at the side of his bed
He turns the page and refreshes his spirit
And drinks in some heavenly wisdom
Spirit to spirit, Man to man, Deep unto deep
Here he goes again, so here she goes again too.

Refreshed, refocused, reassured
Their bones thaw
Their spirits are full
They embrace their source
But she'll keep an eye
On the one whom she shares with the world and heaven.

He Had No Balls

Still the bone remained....
Pulling on his chain; ever snarling
A tug of war with, her tree as meat loaf 
Became his dreams and gobble said the turkey
Unto her queen bee ? Blue bishops atop pogo sticks a fly
With one big eye siphoning the marrow from time's sparrow; slobbering
Their madman howls holy cow his orange cat meows wow, where has Alice gone.

You

YOU

you are the silent beat of my heart
who constantly fills it with longing
you are the madness and sanity of my mind
who invades my thoughts in every waking moment
you are the fuel that lights my fire
who ignites the flame within me
you are the wind beneath my wings
who lifts my soul to fly in your sky
you are the symphony of my life
who brings harmony and beauty to my days
You are the music that heals my soul
whose melody I want to hear 
over and over again with out end

Special

 Some times People comes in our life
 When we are lease expected
 And some thing special, about them
 Spreads over us and gets us infected

 It was just an ordinary day
 Nothing different, nothing strange
 But didn’t know before the night was over 
 That everything was going to change

 And it all was just by mistake
 Nothing hidden or in disguise
 It was right there in plain view
 The gift of friendship in front my eyes

 Sometime angel’s disguise as people
 And people comes disguise as angels
 Which ever one she came as 
 Tonight I really cannot tell

 All I know is god is everywhere
 And only open eyes can see a miracle
 And it takes special people to inspires us 
 To highs we never though was reachable

 Since having you as my friend
 My life has risen to a higher greater level
 And it’s true that the people around us
 Will shape the path that we will travel

 Simple words of encouragement
 Can find and open the close hidden doors
 And can make us search in my hearts
 To find the person that was lost before

 And it’s just the simple things
 Like that you would do
 And special friends like you
 In this world are very rear and few

 And this isn’t about love I swear
 It’s about your act of kindness
 Because of you now
 My life longer feels worthless

 Some friendships only last for a while
 In your life many friends will pass thought
 I know our friendship will last a life time
 For I can never find a friend special like you

 The rain is a blessing from god upon us
 That gives us life and make the flowers grew
 And I must have done some good deed
 For god to send a friend special like you

 Our friend ship and meeting was written
 By the hands of the almighty
 And the roads of uncertainty that awaits ahead
 They can no longer frighten me

 For the dark corners that I find my self in
 A light of hope will come shining thru
 And that light my beautiful friend
 Is the kindness from the heart of you

Love's Origin

Why do we love? 
Why?! 
We were first loved, that is why. 
By a God so great, so holy! 
We don’t deserve this great love, 
Yet He is willing to give it, 
Willing to be born a human, 
Willing to suffer, 
Willing to die... 
Just to show His great love for us! 
What more do we need 
to show us that our great God loves us?! 
We love, because we were first loved... 
By a God so great, so holy...

Jesus Is HERE

Jesus Is Here!

The same Jesus who died on the cross,
 is right here!
I don’t need to worry,
 doubt or have any fear!

The same Jesus who walked
 on this earth long ago…
Is the same one, who can redeem
 and make me whole!

The same Jesus who arose
in his resurrection power…
Can meet all of my needs! 
 This very hour!

The same Jesus who defeated
 Satan by his word…
Has spoken his marvelous grace,
 for all to be heard!

The same Jesus is the one
 who wants you to know him!
One day, every one will confess,
and bow before him!

The same Jesus could return this very day!
For HE is the truth, the life,
 and the only way!

Won’t you accept everything
 that he has given?
You too can experience the power
 of being FORGIVEN!

Can You Surrender To Love

Can you surrender to
Love so complete, 
So utterly now,
sense slips into
sleep. 
So quietly sane, not
caring  for thought,
Be free of minds
grip and all it has
wrought.
Can you silence
beliefs, desires and
dreams,
All fears and doubts
that continue to
ream,
And fall within to
be consumed by Love,
To share Natures
gifts and fly with
the dove.
Can you surrender to
Love, past will be 
No longer
controlling of you
and me,
Nor future to worry;
leave at Time’s
gate,
To exist in this
moment, life’s
estate. 

Will you surrender
to love so to set
Your beloved free,
right from the get, 
No more shackles or
bonds, human and
whole, 
Dancing with Life
and melodic with
Soul.
Will you settle free
of anger and blame,
Tribe and nation or
religion and shame,
Freeing our children
from all the above,
They are all our
children, free them
to Love.
Will you surrender
to love, seize the
key, 
The key you were
born with, for us to
be
Our own True self,
spirit, body and
mind 
The resonance that
holds for all
mankind.

When you surrender
to Love, to be still

No puppet to ego nor
grist for mill, 
To see your life’s
stories and all of
that,
To love them the
same, they are your
begat.
When veils fall
quickly and grace
gives birth
Clarity is yours and
you will rock with
mirth,
For Love abounds and
is not tied to
worth,
Instead flowing
open, inclusive of
Earth. 
When you surrender
to Love you will
find 
Astonishment there
in a peace sublime,
For all that is,
ever was and will be
You hold in your
heart, so simply be
thee.

Love Lights the Way

Love lights the way in the darkness
A shelter in the storm; 
	to heal the broken heart.
Hold on; 
Hold tight to Hope,
Because Love will light the way.

Once I fell for Thor

I once fell for a man with looks to kill and long hair as golden blonde 
Body as a warrior god should be with his eyes so blue as ice 
There I stood frozen into his spell 
As he held me and looked deep into my eyes 
And utterd these simple words of love I was sprung deep into him 
This god of thunder kissed my lips ever so softly 
Thought I've found my one true love only to find his true way of lies and useing my heart 
Just to crumble and crush me down to my sorrow with his enchanted hammer to crush my heart 
And all I hoped for to a million shatterd peices 
I suppose this will be as I once fell for Thor

Why Can't We Be Love

Why can't we be love
Beloved
It's harder to hate
With chains and heavy weight
And anger that separates
Rather than love undefined
No barriers of any kind
No mountains to climb
Only love to unbind
We push innocence down
Condemning like we understand
When we don't have the first clue
As to what they may be going through
We cast an image, a people as wrong
Because they don't resemble tradition
A little different than before
With looks a little different
With color a little different
With identity a little different
Oriented in a little different way
God's perfect Children
With love a little different
Can we accept to accept
Once and for all
Can we expect to accept
From now and for all
Let the message be heard
Jesus is alive in His World
The Word comes to life
Thank You Christ for Your Sacrifice.

IMAGINATION HUES

Drops of sweats hovers my face..
As i walk ahead slowly through a phase..
In a whirlwind like the maze..
I find myself dreaming amaze...

Glued deeply buried on the ground...
I wonder how a melodious music sound...
I drum and twirl my fingers in round..
Fidgeting strings of triangles I found...

I fall back in a convergence of scenes..
Leaving away footprints that don't dim..
Beaming with meeknes of it seems..
Mimic the yonders and let eyes gleam..

Vibrantly shining in a spectrum of rainbows...
Vigorously rejoicing loud in the meadows.
Reflecting through vivid shapely shadows..
Amusing and beckoning, one will follow...

Things Change

Love hurts and people change. Things go wrong and things get strange. But life goes on and you only life it once. Be strong cause things will get better over the months. I thought I was heartbroken, I thought you were my world. You fooled me though, made me think I was your only girl. But all along, you didnt care. Im not sure, your were even completely there. But now I've moved on, when I thought it was impossible. I had to be the bigger person in this breakup, I was responsible. I let it get to me, but I didnt let it ruin me completely. I didnt do anything about the hurt you caused me, I acted so sweetly. I let you walk all over me, I tried to ignore how you disrespected me. But when I ended things, the pain was easier to see.

A Song for My Beloved

Our Beloved returns        with a mighty entourage
his banner men ride before him
             they are swifter than stallions 
and their weapons          as the talons of eagles
their chariots are laden full
             amphora of the reddest wine
and full of the oils of gladness
This is the story                of everlasting love
written within the hearts of mankind
             a story of promises kept
of exclusive devotion without equal
             of it's engagement and preparations 
it's unity realized     and it's fidelity measureless 
a vision of excellence      is my beloved
He is the color        of the crystalline stones
forged in the hearts of the mountains
his transparency    glows in it's intensity
He is the rising             of the tides
and the canopy    that resides under the vault of heaven 
his affections call out       and reach into every dark place
and we ourselves          are held in his eternal embrace
There is to us   but one King     and our hearts
bow before his majestic countenance 
He has built a great house
many have     been employed          in it's construction
A place for rejoicing     endlessly
every fine and desirable element
                           fill his treasuries and chambers 
He cast out his lines           one by one
and baited his nets       with the words of Love
He drew us from the sea           and salted us         
with his own expressions 
and set before us         a golden bowl and chalice
filled to the brim      and overflowing
and we are faint       faint with Love
I am comely    and clothed with desire
and my esteem            is in his exquisiteness 
the flawless         reflection        of his divinity 
He has openly            shown his faithfulness
our affections as the rushes    of rivers , waterfalls
and rain in the spring         of the old growth forests
and it's age as old          as the cosmos
whose beginning is as       unknowable as it's end
Come my Beloved      and collect us together
gather the great feast           of which every bird
under heaven will partake 
be swift upon the mountains   for we are captives
in a colossal wilderness    filled with the desert winds 
held only by the golden chords 
and the silver sounds    of your own declarations
                   of Love 

Duet 7:9-12  1Kings 8:22-23  Daniel 9:4

I Need More of Jesus

I Need More of Jesus!

I need more of Jesus in my life today!
May I humble myself
 in a Christ' like way!

I need more of HIM, 
as my life goes along.
Though I am weak…  
He remains strong!

I need more of his word to nourish my soul!
It will strengthen and make me whole!

I need more of HIS love to flow 
ever so gently!
He's done so much for me…  
Evidently!

I need his spirit's guidance,
for needed correction!
May I heed his voice,
for the right direction!

He is and will always be the Lord for me!
I need much more of him…  
It's so plain to see!

Come sweet Jesus! 
And touch my heart!
May my love for you….   
Never depart!

Why Not Trust Jesus


Perhaps things in life have
 taken the “wrong turn.”
Life is passing you by…  
And you’re not concerned?

Things that were important,
aren’t important anymore.
Life just seems to be like one big “revolving door.”…

Your love for people close to you, seems to be gone.
Almost everything you do,
 seems to turn out wrong.

Your life seems to be like a ship
 that’s lost at sea/
You wonder; “why lord, has this
 been happening to me?”

Jesus loves you very much!
  And he understands!
He’\s waiting to pick you up,
 with his outstretched hand!

He’ll replace your loneliness
 with a satisfying love!
And put your life back together,
 fashioned from above!

His perfect love will give you hope
 and a peace of mind!
Why not trust him now?  NOW is the time!

Gathering Pieces of Me

So many times you have hurt me,
creating an emotional shrill
that disintegrates my joy
in a hiccup speed.....

It is by holding onto love for you,
that I have learned how to join pieces
of my broken joy again. I tried alcohol,
bungee-jumping, and sky gazing
to repair my joy, but alas! alas!;
I discovered that love was the easiest
way to my joy's pieces again!

Strange, Not Knowing Who

It is strange not knowing who they were,
with angels offering light, without a word,
when loss had tossed us from here to there. 

So many tasks, were done, assured.
For awhile, skies would lose the dinge of gray, 
with angels offering light, without a word.

When the fog of grief would shroud the day,
another gracious heart had hovered.
For awhile, skies would lose the dinge of gray.

Each day renewed, and what we uncovered,
with a freezer filled, and casseroles made,
another gracious heart had hovered.

There were signs of a mower's blade, a garden spade.
New strength in tandem, with despair, 
with a freezer filled, and casseroles made.

Each random kindness, helped us fare.
It is strange not knowing who they were.
New strength in tandem, with despair,
when loss had tossed us here and there.

Just Loving Jesus

Just Loving Jesus!

Just loving Jesus...
Have you missed out?
On what being child of God is all about!
Some think true love comes from
laughter or a “funny feeling.”
Getting involved with things not of God,
but are appealing.

Twisting the true joy of God,
with the empty joy of man.
Forgetting what God’s word says—
failing to understand.
LISTEN! Godly love is not based on
an “overnight experience.”
Nor based on what may have a
“Godly appearance.”

It comes from falling in love with
Jesus and his precious word too.
Simply enjoying Jesus, and his life
that he gave for you!
Don’t forget… Everything you have…
from Jesus it came.
Be careful not to reject 
the love in his precious name!

A Midnight Muse

Life’s too short
To waste in tears
Much less in fears

Invest big
Give all you’ve got
Could be your last shot

Ease up soldier
Laugh it out
Cry or shout

Sorry’s the word
It’ll sail you thru
Your soul just grew

Start now
Call old friends
Make those amends

Bounce back
Heart on your sleeve
No need to grieve

Take the time
A second or two
To say I love you

Live your dreams
Light the spark
Hello light goodbye dark

Ecliptic Silence

Hopeful but its so mundane
Filling the hollowness with more empty pleasure
But it takes my hand and and walks me through this withering decay
Into the ecliptic silence, 
Self medicated diluted dreams
A mixture of over stimulation and desensitizing me 
Somewhere between ominous and beautiful
Letting the darkness consume my conscious brain
Until the sun can realign and pulls me back into this day
To overcome this strange numbness 
Of self inflicted shadowing
Butterflies once warmed me up inside until I pulled off all their wings
Holding memories I cant forget while praying to a God who has forgot
But we are only allowed to keep the things that we have already lost
Sometimes living is not enough without sovereignty 
As these flightless insects crawl back inside 
Then perhaps through their death life would be more satisfied
Finger deep I draw a line then stand to face a blackened sky
I reevaluate Your presence now without You Lord then where am I 
Because this is me You were my light, subsequently my faith has died
Somewhere below the surface of this shifting unstable world of mine

My Promise


I cannot buy you a house near the ocean
But I will build you a home deep inside
I cannot paint on your heart my devotion
But I can promise you a portrait in the sky

I will never be the leader of many men
But I shall follow the hearts of the humble
And I will never be perfect, free of sin
But I will splendor in my faith , should I stumble

I cannot adorn you with diamonds and gold
To shine like the sparkle in your eyes
But I can promise this heart that I hold,
Will be yours till the day that I die

I cannot travel to the past to change tomorrow
For the future, it is hidden in the stars
And if I run out of words, I shall borrow,
The kindness that is written in your heart

My promise is to hold you  just enough that you will know
I will never let go of you, and the heart will never end
As long as it beats while we dance so very close
And the moment shares each memory with its everlasting kiss

U Love U

A lot of people are searching for love
Looking for a mate to compliment themselves
Feeling unfulfilled, incomplete, the worst half
Looking for that other half to feel complete
But some of those people searching for love
Don't love themselves half as much
Looking for someone to love them
Because it’s hard to love the one in the mirror
The world tells you that you’re not OK
You're too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short, 
Too black, too white, too flashy, too plain, 
Teaching that an hourglass figure is the goal
And a muscular frame is the key of happiness
If you don't love you, nobody else can
Because people love confident people
People that's confident in themselves
The key for confidence is in loving self
Once you love yourself, you go for the best
Not for last place, but first place
Many must learn to love self
Or at least force yourself in that love
Learn yourself, trust yourself, and believe in you
Motivate yourself and no one can stop you
So smile, you deserve it and much more
Spoil yourself one a while and enjoy
Put that chest out, stand tall and walk
You're excellence, magnificence, elegance
But first love you, trust and be pleased
So love that person in the mirror
And watch a new you bloom!

Jesus Is Concerned About YOU

	
Jesus Is Concerned About YOU!


 Jesus is concerned about YOU!
The struggles you face…
 the trials you’re
 going through!

When trials in 
life begin to arise…
Think about the love 
in your father’s eyes.

With every trial…  
Jesus makes a way to escape
He’s here to help you!
Never a moment too late!

When life’s problems seem so
 difficult to solve…
Give them to him!
He’s there to resolve…

The future may be uncertain
 in the days ahead.
But Jesus is the river of life…
And your daily bread!

Knife and Lust

Walking these streets of manhattan so aimlessly 
All alone in the dark only lights by the city shops 
I'm scared alone feeling out of love now lost the knife was rough 
You stabbed me in the back all I can do is Cry on my knees veins hot as fire 
With mixed emotions running through 
It's Like this dagger killing me more inside all this love and all this hate burns me away 
Deep inside passion urning for another lusting after another 
As if I were a lion in a jungle taking that prey and burning up with tense desire 
It's like a knife with loves wounds after the lust 
This is very hard for me in a world you left me bleeding alone 
Never picked me up left my heart to die out 
With my tears hitting the city pavement times like this just burns me away 
Love can go off like a loaded gun a love  vanishes just like a knife with lust

Appreciation

Have I ever told you how
wonderful you are? 
well if I didn't now I'm telling you
your wonderful I wouldn't 
be the person I am today
if it wasn't for you 
the way you stay on
me about doing the right thing
the way you curse me out 
if I get on your nerves or if I 
just catch you on a bad day
not to mention the fact that 
you went above and beyond 
for me, past the call of duty
and for that I am forever grateful
so the only thing I can do
is to help you in anyway possible
anything you want
you can have it
I would move the stars
and the heavens for you if I could
so thank you for everything 
that you have done
and are still doing 
so don't ever say that I don't 
appreciate you when I do things
that don't make sense
because I am only human
and I will make mistakes
but one thing that I wouldn't do
is take you for granted
because without you I 
would be lost like a needle in a haystack 
so just bear with me a little while longer
and I promise you that I 
will make you proud of me
and that will be my way of 
showing you just how much
I appreciate you and what you do 
thank you for being who you are 
because no one can do you
better than you

We Need to Be Orientated to Jesus

We Need to Be Orientated to Jesus!

There’s often a lot of speculation…
Regarding a person’s “orientation.”

As each day goes by… One can clearly see...
Many are confused as to what they want to be.

Which direction one goes…  Is “anybody’s guess…”
No wonder this world’s an “upside-down” mess!

The Bible says; “straight is the way.”  
And “narrow is the gate.”
One needs to make up his mind. 
 Before it’s too late!

If one is confused.  Let God’s word
 give a clear direction!
It’s the word of God that gives
 much needed correction

A “Jesus orientation” is 
what needs to take place!
There’s a savior who loves us!  
And offers his grace!

If one is still unhappy with the way
 They’ve been created…
We’re wonderfully designed by God! 
 This shouldn’t be debated!

Allow the power of Jesus,
 to orientate your life today!
And listen to what your creator 
really has to say!

Where there is emptiness…  God’s love does
 much more abound…
Allow the Holy Spirit to turn 
your life around!

Jesus alone can change your 
whole way of living!
His life for yours…  
Is what HE is giving!

Perfect kind of desire

Sitting here in front of your image 
I desired from my past 
My body all in tingles 
Body gets fired up like the summer heat 

All emotions running wild 
I know I should not lust it's unjust 

But you look so good yet so fantastic 
I can almost taste you with my lips with lust 

I can not control it 
Is it wrong that I love the way your presence is 

You are a lier and a cheat thief in the night 
Tonight your everything I desired 

Like a roman warrior god 
Love your aching heart 

Just a work of arts desire 
Did not know this love could feel so good 

Your dangerous I don't care 

Maybe I'm naive 

Your my perfect kind of desire 
I long for you can you save me from that cloud

There were times when I couldn’t define…
The way I felt, the small pieces of me…
That I’d kept hidden, safely away…
From the world’s eyes.
 
There were parts of my heart…
That I wouldn’t allow anyone to see…
Little bits of myself that I kept for only me…
Because I couldn’t believe anyone would accept…
The woman within, the one who had flaws…
Faults that came out sometimes, imperfections…
That taunted and haunted me, …
These, I neglected to reveal…
Because I was afraid of being rejected.
 
You taught me that love is unconditional
Love sees through the masks,
Into the hidden places…
Deep inside, behind the walls…
Erected to keep away pain and betrayal.
Your love has taught me that I’m ok
I’m someone that deserves love and acceptance
You understand when I make a mistake
And never reject me because I fail some days
 
Thank you for showing me this love
Love that never fails to make me feel
That I’ve been blessed with something special
Love that is more beautiful and amazing
Than I could have ever anticipated
Love that is alive with joy, hope and faith
Love that knows me, totally…
And gives fully, without holding back
Love that is… the answer to my greatest needs
The reason for my hopes and dreams
Love that becomes… more special
With each passing moment
 
Thank you, my dear friend
For a love that I can believe in

To live without you

To live without

YOU

Is to live without

A sunrise

A sunset

A star filled sky

And music

That lifts the soul

In worship


To live without you

Is to live without

Sensational life

Eyes that see - Ears that hear

The tongue that speaks and tastes

The hand that holds-that touches

A heart that feels-that knows

A mind that can comprehend

The beauty of life- in all its fullness


To live without YOU

Is to live without LOVE

YOU make everything beautiful in my soul

Thank YOU GOD

For without YOU I am nothing

And could not perceive anything good


YOU are the inspiration for every love song

The inspiration for every sacred word written

In fact for all of creation - I can only be in AWE

I overflow like a cup filled and pouring over

With the wonder Of YOU

Rewrite

Rewrite
You have been broken down to believe you deserve no better
But you do and you forgot so now I write this letter
The strings were cut free to be the woman you know you are
Fear the secret tether keeping you from going too far
The game replayed and still you chose to be the willing fool
Knowingly a pawn knowing they will break the rule
You strove to rekindle your flame to reclaim your soul’s fire
Don’t deny yourself the respect or deny the desire
That familiar face in the mirror longs to understand the why
Love should bring you a smile not more tears to cry
Cast away self doubt and that lingering fear of the unknown
Left to the dark the flower would have never grown
Revel in your strengths as you relish what keeps you smitten
Freed from page your story’s end is yet to be written

'I think of you a great ocean away'

I think of you a great ocean away--
it cuts like broken glass, longing for you
here all alone and without a bright ray
of hope to keep me from feeling so blue. 

If I could fly like a bird and appear
at your door like a long-lost, old letter
I'd move both heaven and Earth to be near
you,--nothing under heaven could be better!

Tho' I am poor my heart's filled with riches
and rubies for a beautiful princess
like you (all dressed for a ball in fine stitches
and decked in black heels fit for a duchess).

If it pleases you I'd scale tall mountains
and plumb the deepest under-sea valleys;
and like de León I'd search the fountains
of youth for you 'til I bleed in the knees.

Together, we are the Shepherd and Lamb;
I'd lead you to graze in the tall grasses,
where the fields are watered by the brick dam
ahead of the wet and muddy passes.

I am the river and you are the sea;
my love flows into you like the Ganges.
Like seed, I'd flower in your open lea
and germinate in your soul's small crannies.

I am the soil and you are the rose,
tinted red with life and soulful beauty.
You'd reek of brilliance to every nose
and be wise beyond the age of ninety.

Like a bottomless well my love runs deep
for you and will never run dry or cold.
With these tender words of mine you can keep
them near your heart as if they're made of gold.

What Will You Do With God's Love


What will you do with the love
 that God has given?
His love can transform
and change how you're livin'!

What will you do with the sacrifice
 that Jesus paid?
A way to everlasting life,
 has already been made!

Who will you listen to, when the roll
 is called "up yonder?"
With God's will, you will
 stumble and wander!

When will you spend some time
 with the Lord in prayer?
He'll always listen to you!
 And is always there!

Why not come to Jesus?
 You can know him tonight!
He'll bring hope and make
 the darkness bright!

Why not give Jesus a chance
 in your life this hour?
So you too can experience
 his resurrection power!

Awakening

Silent and still, our wasted strength
waited for the dawn
to pry open day’s magnificent creation.
We waited for morning’s breath
to kiss the daylight into us
and take the star-light from our eyes.
You were a contagious infliction
for which there was no cure.
We were two lovers laying in the wilderness,
comprising the night.

All Glory to Jesus


All Glory to Jesus!
I'm on he winning side!
He is powerful and turning
 back the evil tide!

Glory be to Jesus!
 He's my Lord and friend!
By his grace and mercy,
 I am born again!

Glory be to Jesus!
Let the hallelujah's role!
I'm complete in him!
The redeemer of my soul!

Glory be the Jesus!
 He can be your savior too!
He offers free salvation!!
 What are you going to do?

All praise to Jesus!
 God's precious son!
He's all we ever need!
The all sufficient one!

Debussy Inspiration

Debussy Inspiration

I advanced from piano player to pianist
When I finally memorized Claire De Lune.
Since then I’ve migrated to a rhythm guitarist,
But I could never escape that flowing tune.

I played Debussy’s song so often without the sheets
That over time it evolved to something else.
A few different notes or off-rhythmic beats;
So that an expert would patently find it false.

I eventually learned to play more difficult songs:
Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini,
And many of Scott Joplin’s syncopated ragtime songs;
But Debussy’s Claire De Lune still remains a part of me.

When You Said Hello

Walls I thought I'd never climb crumbled,
For behind them stood a most beautiful flower.
To think just rain made you grow amazed me,
Those tears you'd suffered making an angel.

Never gave my life yet that day I offered it to you,
Willing to die for this lovely paradise I had found.
Actually looked at love staring back at me for first time;
Funny how one four letter word greeted me with such joy.

That thing evil seeming so tiny after simply meeting you,
Seeing how it always cowered so sadly in dark corners.
Not one single day going by now I don't think of you,
Knowing you never left me and are only waiting for me.

I vowed to you with your last breath I would catch up,
And that promise your loving knight will truly keep.
Riding to you on a stallion of passionate white light,
My everything soaring forever to eternally say hello.

Very Soon I'll Be WITH JESUS



Very Soon, I’ll Be With Jesus! I know my life on earth shall one day end… This body will turn back into dust again. I hope that in my life’s remaining days… I’ll be careful to give God glory and praise! I hope that with the opportunities given… I’ll walk in the joy of my sins being forgiven! I’m thankful that Jesus has shown to me… How much he really cares and loves me! If not for Jesus… Where I would be? He offered his body as a sacrifice for me! Because of what he’s done, I’m living today! He’ll be with me! Till the end of the way! When my life closes, and a new life begins… I’ll be with my savior, lord and friend! Thank you Jesus! As a new day starts! You’ve brought love and joy to my heart! By Jim Pemberton

Love

How many of us have been in love
Love is wonderfull
Probably the greatest feeling
In the universe
I'm not talking about that
Wham
Bam
Thank you kind of love
I'm talking about that 
Agape love willing to put
It all on the line for 
The person that you love
Willing to go to hell 
And back for that person
That's the kind of love
That I'm talking about
Love is special
You can not by love
Instead you have to find love
And once you find it
You will be a different person
Love is marvelous
Magnecific 
But it is also
Hard to keep
You have to fight for love
If you want to keep it 
It is a rare sight 
Now-a-days to see a couple
Happly married for 30 plus years
Most marriages Now-a-days
Ends within the first 5 years
So anything beyond that is amazing
I'm looking for love myself
I had it once but lost it
Now I'm on a quest to find love
Will I find what I'm looking for
Hopefully 
Maybe
Have to keep moving
Love is powerful 
Love will make you 
Do strange things
Love is the greatest weapon
Ever created and for those who
Haven't experienced love before
It's awsome trust me
Give it a try some day
And you will see how 
Awesome love is

A Poem For My Lady

The dawn has no beauty which compares to thee
The sun has no glow as the brown eyes I see
Melon has no taste as the honey from your lips
Wine has not the power I find within your kiss

And to compare you to a sunset is a mockery
For nothing can compare to your inner beauty
For what is lost in beauty is overwhelmingly won
In a soft personality that compares to none

Its richness is beyond what is valued and rare
And its nourishment is more than even the air
And to one like me its  my most essential need
To have my wanting heart love the likes of thee

I have felt the sky rain which nourishes flowers
And I have felt your love rain upon my heart
Causing it to blossom beautifully every hour
With the sweetest love songs of the meadow lark

I have seen the beauty of crystal blue seas
I have seen its waves as they kissed the beach
And in their ferociousness have I now seen
The way your priceless beauty did capture me

And nothing in this life can compare to thee
Nothing else in this world I can touch or see
For I knew in my heart that nothing would be
As lovely as the one  who truly loves me.

Expectations

 In every loving relationship, 
 There are often hurt feelings involve
 We all have certain expectations 
 We expect our partners to resolve
 
 And when they don’t live up to them
 We can feel a sense of betrayal
 But if we don’t know the expectations
 Then how can we fulfill it after all?

 But if we take a moment to think
 We are really hang over some fantasies
 Of how a perfect lover should be
 We see on some romantic movies

 True love are shown in many ways
 And its don’t carry a price tag
 Love don’t come in a size of a diamond
 Or in a Victoria's Secret shopping bag

 Love are shown with little actions
 Like holding you close when you are sick
 And running out to get what you need
 Coming back home with it very quick

 Love is bringing a tear to your eyes
 By missing your love one from far 
 And telling her how sweet she is 
 While she eats lemons that’s very sour

 Love is like the wind of a hurricane
 It can travel across the universe
 And it blows on all ages and colors
 Love is very unique and diverse

 I love the some one with out fear
 And will accept her without restrictions
 And I trust her without questioning
 And I desire her without inhibitions

 I though I would never find love
 Love and I never had an understanding
 To me love was like a hot air balloon
 That will always results in a heavy landing

 So I try to convince my heart 
 To give up on love already
 Then god opens up the heavens
 And send an angel here for me

 Now I find a new passion for life
 That’s full of hopes and expectations 
 It’s just like the seeds in the orchards
 That will soon comes to full fruitions

 Love makes you wake in the morning
 And see the world for the first time
 Love can make the highest mountains
 Seems possible for you to climb

 And it will take a miracle to be her
 For she’s an angel and I’m just a man
 But god who made us meets 
 So I have a lot of expectations

Incurable Romantic

My passion drives me to look into your eyes
I see your wants and needs with no denies
My puppy look expression takes you by surprise
As I hear your heart call out with love of sighs
With such a cute look and expressions that wills
I yell out to you with hope and love that thrills
I smile to you with kindness in mind
And you come running to me and hug me so kind
My heart aches for you with beauty in sight
My life would not be so sunny and so bright 
If you could hold me with love of affection
You can see the passion of detection
I come to you with open heart
I hold with embrace our future to start

her poem

 I write poems on many topics
 Love, nature, stars in the sky
 Some can make you smile
 And some can even make you cry

 Some can touch your hearts
 And make your emotions flow
 Can even make you hungry
 And make your appetite grow

 But when I ask the girl I love
 To write her a poem, she said no
 And at that moment I was hurt
 Until she explain why she said so

 But she said that I could
 As her smile lights up so bright
 That she will let me write one
 But only on our wedding night

 And she wants me to read it to her
 And it’s been her secret wish
 And it will be so special to her
 a night she will always cherish

 So I started writing her poem
 But will keep it secret in my mind
 And it will be the easiest poem to write
 And it will be the best of all time

 So I began write about her
 And the first day that we met
 And the moment I laid my eyes on her 
 A second I will never forget

 the kindness of her heart
 Is like a treasure that has no end
 She is my angel from above
 My soul mate and my best friend

 Her hair, her face, her sweet voice
 Is a beautiful mystery to the world?
 Her eyes and beautiful smile
 Is like the sun warning my soul

 The way she talks, the ways she walks 
 She just takes my breathe away
 Her wisdom and understanding
 The magic in every word that she says

 And loving her is like breathing
 It’s the only thing I’m living for
 And i would end the poem by saying
 I love you infinity for ever more

Hope

 What is life with out hope?
 What will we do without it?
 Hope is what keeps us going
 with the courage to never quit

 We reach out and hold on to
 Any hope that we can find
 To bring temporary comfort
 To our over crowded mind

 It’s natural for us to lose hope
 And walk around with a despair face
 But then logic is if we never found hope
 How can we lose it in the first place?

 But still we keep holding on
 Looking ahead for the greener pasture
 And the moral strength of our past
 We will pave the road to our future 

 Hope comes in all forms and reasons
 Many hope for different things
 Some hope to see or walk again
 And some to fly with broken wings

 Some hope for wealth and power
 Some just hope it rain from above
 Some hope for health and food
 And I just hope to be with the girl I love

 When we see someone with despair
 It’s like looking in a mirror
 Its either we been there before
 Or it’s waiting for us round the corner

 Some are born with golden spoons
 There forks never got stuck in the roads
 And the never had to hope 
 Because they carry no heavy loads

 Not all carries kindness in their hearts
 And that is their purgative
 But without kindness and compassion
 Then you have nothing to offer or to give

 And although not all will admit
 But every one hopes for the best
 And some succeed without even hoping
 And some just face a lifetime of test

 Parents wish the best for their children
 And pray to keep them safe from harm
 But sometimes things just happens
 And the sea can no longer be calm

 And it’s only who in the kitchen
 Can really feel the heat
 And hope gives us courage to fight
 Until our victory is complete

 And sometime we will reach our limits 
 Pushing, pretending, getting frustrated
 Tired of falling down and getting up
 But still all we can do is hope and wait

 And no matter how bad our situation
 There is always some one worst than us
 Just look around and you will them
 On the streets, stores and city bus

 And if they reach out a hand to us
 Then we must pull them of the slope
 And For that moment to them 
 We become a shining light of hope

Participation For Anticipation

To me you are my destination
And to you I am 
A target of destruction

To me you are a friendly union
And to you I am
Just a time pass combination

We are both human creation
So why this is
Such an agonizing confusion

God has gifted determination
To both of us
To become a lovable inspiration

But we are showing indignation
By deliberately
Forgetting humanity aspiration

We are failed in the examination
Given by the Lord
By showing our foul resignation

Let’s come by for a culmination
To represent our
True account of the unification

Bouquet of Stars

I followed your voice…
I followed your voice…
With a bouquet of stars in hand
I followed your voice
I followed it with all of my heart
You approve of the gift,
I knew you’d understand

I followed His distinct voice…
It sounds so familiar
It’s very impressive and peculiar
Swarm around me
Swarm around me
Swarm around me, crowds that scream cheerfully 
Don’t make a sound…
Don’t make a sound…
Don’t make a single buzz, you buzzing bee

Don’t chase away our vibrant victory
You can share it with us…if you’d only listen to me
Listen to me
I won’t mind handing you a portion of ecstasy  
A portion of ecstasy 
A bouquet of stars 

Forget and forgive the past, making you feel like a dark shade

Are you feeling like the dark shade of gray?

You’re almost turning black,
Like a star losing its radiance 
White is the color you lack  
White is the color you need to lighten up 
White is the color you’re required to have
To be as optimistic as a baby, 
Experience life for the first time ever

I know you’ll always live in my heart forever 

In my heart forever
In my heart forever 
Like a bouquet of stars 
You’ll remain in my heart forever
In my heart forever
In my heart forever 
In your ruby heart, 
Your priceless emotions 
Change constantly like weather 

You’re a story that I’ve read 
When I lay comfortably on my somewhat neat bed
I’ve read you many, many times already

I’ve noticed a difference in you…

Please forgive me for being too carefree!

I’ll chase after you like a cat,
Trying to catch the rat
Trying to catch the rat…
But ends up falling head first on the soft mat
Trying to catch the rat…
Trying to catch the rat 
By the tail…but it later becomes a fail 

Our friendship will never decay or become stale

Like milk that gets left on the counter for days…
 
Have I ruined your self-esteem? 

If I did, I would throw all the blame on me and scream! 

Throw the blame on me
Throw the blame on me
I don’t care, you see?

I’ve been scattering everywhere like cheerios on the kitchen floor
Like pieces of a special, china cup on the kitchen floor

But, you piece me altogether

Like a bouquet of stars
Like completing a puzzle
Like healing a bunch of scars
Like solving a silly, difficult riddle

Don’t lose contact with me…
Don’t lose contact with me…
Don’t give up on me…
Find me in the fields of roses, growing wildly
There are plenty of them to pick from
Go ahead and take some home with you

Don’t look the other way or head back to the city
I don’t want to ruin our friendship anymore
Don’t make me feel self-pity
Don’t walk away from the problem – I want us both to soar
To soar with elegance and splendor 
I want to spend the rest of my life with you for sure

I want you to never lose faith in me

Never lose faith in me
Never lose faith in brighter days

Never stop perking up bouquet of stars
Rearrange them and make them look nicer
It must take effort and practice to make them look neater
Are you a professional florist? I’d give you 5-stars!

Never lose confidence in Him…
Or you’ll never receive such high praise

What about you give him this exquisite gift
I bet He’ll cherish your bouquet of stars 

I wish you the best of luck 
The best of luck
The best of luck 
In your future findings

Open up your heart to me 
Keep fighting the good fight

Fight until you discover delight,

You elevating, striking starlight

Unbearable Beauty, In White

Unbearable Beauty, In White


Light so bright my mind went blank and instantly dumb
 a beautiful presence entered the dance filled room
I saw, I prayed , I hoped near me she would come
 as the previous darkness fled with a crashing boom!

O' glory where does your brilliant light now shine?
 can splendor now bear the humiliating shame
This ravenous beauty must some day, some way be mine
 surely magnificent prose cries out to sing her name!

White gown of silk and necklace of brightly crafted gold
 wrapped this vision in it's adorning color and grace
Yet pale was the decorating beauty so exquisitely bold
 when cast against the vibrant beauty of her form and face!

Dare I announce my admiration and hidden fantasy desires
 to one of such pure , clean and radiant image so fair 
Devil cast the spell , my soul raced deeply into the fires
 of sweet dreams, loving delights and magic mist in the air

Cupid sent treasure filled words to my feverish mind
 as I raced across the room to my princess, lady to be
Singing out words that were so soft and lovingly fine
 destiny sang out revealing my heart for her to now see

As joyous dance music sailed into our mystical shared trance
 I to her, she to me , that embrace soon shook our world
A moonlight night that was soon filled with love and romance
 winning great beauty, fear vanquished to make her my girl!

Gentle Love

passionate comes to mind 
when first asked about you
strength jumps in there also
as does respectful too

gently your love cradles 
my slightly broken soul
with tenderness you slowly fix
polishing cracks until they glow

a soldier my alpha male
if need be please beware
for my love will not put up with
hurting anyone in which he cares

loyal to the end he is
friend beyond what i have ever known
my smile always his goals in life
working hard to make this place home

his touch a gentle breeze upon
heart as fate wants we connect
our eyes meet searching soul for pain
first response to ever protect

thank you for loving all of me
even as i am lost in my crazy world
my mind a rotating merry go round
at peace in your arms 
in which i am sleepily curled

Feel their presence near
Holding you so dear
Hands cupped catching tears that flow.
Always at your side

In time you will know
Why things happened so
Blessed is the tie that binds.

The Breakup, Love Words Wasted

The Breakup, Love Words Wasted



You stole away my picture when I sent gentle love to you

words I gifted in sweet refrain you didn't have a clue

I saw so much left untouched and so desperately unsung

words were stillborn , lover's bell so sadly never rung


I sang my heart out to catch your sweet angel eyes!

you left me crying for love with only heartache in my pies

Writing sweet melodies to match your favorite tunes

you left me thirsty for more in your hotly deserted dunes


You stole away my picture as my words fell so very flat

Don't you know love and gentleness is where it is really at?

I saw the winking of those so pretty blue angel eyes

you left me wanting sweet kisses without your pretty lies


Now love sent you a new victim to make your very own

You'll starve him for your loving right down to skin and bone

I want back my loving picture so foolishly given to you

Keep the envelope , it is far more , than you are ever due!

IF I

I touch myself hoping you are with me; 
Days are long and through the night stars keeps me awake
I keep having flashes of you but it’s all just the light
Do you feel this wind which keeps blowing outside?
If this is my last night in this light;
Will you come and switch it on for me?
Even the noisy dogs seems to not destruct me to this passion
What is this feeling am I having?
 For it’s so hard to get it away?
Every day that pass is leaving a hole to my soul
No this is really the feeling I have been hoping for
The feeling of you and I on the mountains of Gods
But is it supposed to be like this;
If our destiny is keep surpassing me like this;
 Can I let it pass without a fight?
I planned so many yet none has happened.
If only we could just meet now before sunset 
So that we can stop the defeat darkness with love

One Family or Familia Moja

When the world began we started as one.
One family, one people, that’s how it was done.
 
Jealously and pride drove us apart,
Great nations then fell, the horse and the cart.
Hatred and murder sorrow and pain,
Even today blood falls like rain…
 
When the world began we started as one.
One family, one people, that’s how it was done.
 
Was it a name or the color of your skin?
Was it your nation? Where do I begin?
You may sound strange or look different to me…
Look past these things, lets live peacefully.
 
When the world began we started as one.
One family, one people, that’s how it was done.
 
The Jeanie in the bottle one wish gave to me,
World peace was one answer but I said, “One family”!
A people full of love, with out hatred or fear.
Though we’re different lets all draw near…
 
When the world began we started as one.
One family, one people, that’s how it was done.

love

Love is an amazing emotion
A sensation that’s desired by all
It can lift you above the clouds
And love can make you fall

When love enters your heart
It feels like a new life has began
You will do anything for that person
Even stand in front the bullet of a gun

But love can be under a lot of strain
So Love can ignore you for awhile
And cause a lot of unnecessary pain
And then take it away with just one smile

Then Love can disappears for days
Just to squeeze your hearts
Love can bring all kind of weather
That was never foreseen on the charts

Lover can push you to the edge
To your very last breathe
Then love can come and say sorry
And with just one hug, make you forget

When in the arms of the one you love
And they love you just the same
All the water in the world
Can’t put out that burning flame

And it’s the happiest feeling
That words can never explain
At that moment you get super powers
And nothing can hurt you again

Went I was small I dream a girl
She had shoulder length hair
And she said I’m waiting come find me
Since then I been searching everywhere

I know she is the girl of my dreams
Maybe living in a country very far
And sometimes at night I wonder
If we are wishing on the same bright star

Maybe I am a hopeless romantic fool
To even write about a girl I dreamt of
But I know she is out there somewhere
Because I’m still waiting to fall in love

It will take a million miracles
For love to finally knock on my door
But the person who gets my heart
Will own it forever more

Many have been in and out of my life
But none has cast that magic spell
But if I ever do find her
In one of my poems I will surely tell

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

 Heaven above, let your heart

How I live


He asked me how I live…what I want…what I do
So I’m thinkin’…hmmmm… My bank account holds plenty
I got a beach house in Hawaii…Waikiki to speak precisely
Everything in it is neutral
Peaceful like the scent of my Issey Miyake…
And my garden jaccuzi tub is so deep
Candlelight everywhere…
So it’s crystal clear like my chandeliers…
that hang from my high ceilings…
High enough for my California King canopy
I sleep like a baby…
to the scents of Hawaiian Breeze throughout my house
So relaxing…
My closets open and lift up…
that’s where you’ll find all my gear 
In every brand you can think of…
From MK to LV to MI brand…that’s me
And in case I get lost there’s some Coach to coach me
My studio owns its own floor…enough said…walk with me
Out to my back yard…through the French doors…my beach…
But first my indoor pool overlooks my outdoor pool
And Niagara falls flow into my sand
Where my name is written…permanent name brand

Illuminate

Truly love can be so
Fascinating
Watching the flowers bloom
Spring comes
Dance with me
In this endless journey
Eternity...

With you I feel so strong
Though we're two worlds apart
I connect you to my
Heart ever beating
Feelings...

Walk away and I will follow
Shadow
Wherever you go
For I know this is
Love...

In the middle of the night
You are my
Light...

Love is as Strong as Death

My desire is boiling molten lava
it erupts when the taste
of your name slips through my thoughts
It is contrary to what I have believed
I have been struck by its arrow
and the curse     and it's shaft drives deeply
I have fought the thoughts
but they crush me like the arms of a man
I am powerless before them
and it's flow is towards you
unwanted or not they dominate me
like the curse    that was given upon exile
from it's face
and has struck the hearts of all womankind
I have held it at bay for so long
embanked      unable to flow freely
You have torn down the dam
I know not how         I am engulfed drowning
I seek to stem    it's flow
redirect it's course       but it sears me
It has awakened me from a dead sleep
I know not if I will allow it to stay
as I am powerless in the face of it
For I know it's source       and it's end
will flay me alive as a pyre
Those so consumed are driven by it's mind
and I know it means my death in exchange for life
I desire the smoke of it 
to drive you away            as the animals 
flee before a fire in the forest 
but I hope you will face it down 
and put it out and release me 
You have undamed something
beyond my control      without the walls
and shields that were built
to keep such a thing contained
and confined          but I am fascinated
as I look upon it like a child
I want to touch it and abandon caution
I am afraid      of it
its as the floodgates of heaven
and can never be fully emptied
a fine scalpel has pierced my heart
and it bleeds      even as it continues to beat
a pain I think only women can know
banked embers have ignited a wildfire
and my heart is engulfed in it's flames 
Never have I felt such overwhelming
powerful emotion , All I have felt for
man is that gentle affection easily put
down        as easily as eros . Why is this
so threatening that I am unable to resist
bowing before it ...and it's flow remains
unabated         I have waited to see if it will
ebb      but it's constant          with an ebb
I think I could defeat it          but do I want to 
Nothing on the planet         compares to it's presence

Sailing

He's like a ship I keep trying to sail-
across an ocean that soaks me in fear.

Holding my fear in his hands,
as if his hands were my fear. 

Stepping in front of me like a shield,
pressing back the waves so my skin could dry.

 Never wrapping his lips over the sharp points with a kiss,
as if it were all the padding I needed.

 Instead, he lines our shoulders, side by side.
So our feet face the same direction.

His hands set sail
without keeping me.

every lied thats been kissed upon ur lips 
every broken promises that beens whispered in ur ear

REMEMBERING WHEN



                                Remembering when the blur of images came clear
                                  When reaching out was for holding on to things
                                     Things that were so amazing was so colorful 
                                 Like a bird with several bright colors on its wings

                              Remembering when the bright light touches your skin
                                       With warmth that makes you feel cheerful
                              When just the touch or hug of one who cares for you
                                    Becomes a memory that becomes so beautiful

Love Come's Naturally

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

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

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

Will You Still Love Me Part 2

will you still love me when my words run out 
when my metaphors don't fall into place
when i sleep covered in ink marks upon
crumpled paper because all meaning is lost? 
will you hold me tight 
in your arms to help
me get inspired? 
will you kiss my lips 
and transfer thoughts 
into my mind?

My Roaring T-rex

MY ROARING T-REX

A vicious angry growl
The pounding of feet on the ground
The sound of munching but in scowl
Looking for bigger bite and cast around

Hiding for awhile and suddenly showed
In the webcam, he grinned broadly
Making way to show his world
Just for playful fun and talk fondly

Come out, come out my roaring T-rex
Come out, come out show me your reflex
I am in the mood to run and be chased
And caught in my little son’s embraced

You are my roaring T-rex in the chat room
Roaring is your way to make me smile
It’s always perfect and laughter in boom
A moment I would always want to reconcile

FLAMING HEART

Flaming Heart

If you would take a second
And try to just slow down,
Listen to people talk
And do not make a sound.
One too many times
Your heart has been broken,
Leaving you so hurt 
And with a mound of emotions.
I know your soul is torn
And I know you may be scared,
But we have all fought battles,
When we were the least bit prepared.
You know you try to hide
Your hurt and your pain,
Covering your wounds
So you never have to explain.
We always will have battles
God gives us lots of tests,
Don't you see that this is one.. To see how much you're blessed?
Take the time right now
To open your eyes and ears,
I am here to help you
And to bury all your fears.
Ever since day one
I have always cared,
Try to let one love you..with whom your stories you have shared.
I am your biggest fan
That, you already know,
Open up to love...
And allow your heart to grow.

A Muse

Heart and soul, you touch me
Regardless of whether or not you’ll ever know
I have been breathing you 
Turned on the lights in my darkened soul
And never again will I stand to be kept in the dark
My light smothered, my spirit closed
A free spirit now you released me 
Tremble as you whisper in my ear
Though it’s not really you at all
Your energy comes over me 
Like a ghost with good intentions
Constant love reaches between us
A stream created by a spiritual mystery
Know that I send you my love and light
And hope for everything you wish for 
A sudden charge, a shock, a flash of energy
Finally hands me back my power
And I step in confident and beautiful and alive
Truly in my own power
I have only been a ghost of myself for too long
Your magnificence is my inspiration, my motivation
Your distant soul my safe haven
And beside you I disappear
Into an obscurity I am happy to be lost in
Endlessly share your beauty
It lights fires in the hearts and minds of many
And makes me free to dream
Wherever that world is where you lose yourself
To follow for a glimpse, I would gladly
You already showed me
A new way to be.

Grave Confusion

Just a sight of my love
Convinced me
With a whisper
That all my dreams
Have come true with her
Shiny glitter
The colour of life
Changed like the weather
But it was only an image
That caused a blaze
In the cold dying heart
Now I have to live
With this painful dream
My heart cries for her
In a silent scream
Which cannot reach
Upto the loving beach
All the shouting waves
Of sorrow and loss
Absorb my calls
And the broken image 
Of my own feelings
Are swimming
On the blood of my being
With every moving wave
I am being carried away
Into my love’s grave

THANKS for LOOKING INTO Me

For my Cousin LISA


THANKS for LOOKING INTO Me..

Thanks for all that you see,
when you look..INTO me.
An inspirational moment, 
between you and I. 
A spiritual connection, 
A REALLY GOOD CRY.

There are times that we share, 
Whether good or bad. 
It's the funniest thing, 
we never end up mad. 

We fight through the messes, 
that are scattered around. 
WE ASK for our blessings, 
..and soon they are found. 

Our true Faith in GOD..
bonds us so tight. 
A talk about life..
in the wee hours of night. 

We speak from our hearts.
Some will say other..
Your not only my cousin, 
sometimes like a mother. 

You encourage me. 
Guide me. 
Seen me through.
I hope I do the same
for you, too! 

When God broke the mold 
He had already made two.
..and what was left.. 
was ME and YOU.

Inspirations A Book of Poems by Nina E Dalin

Hi How are you,

I am a poet naturally and I wrote ‘Inspirations A Book of Poems’ throughout a 5 year journey.It is a 6 Chapter Poetry Book about a young narrators journey through her love life, losses, and the unknown world, ultimately searching for hope she’s found the divine faith hidden within her mind. Have these spiritual words been messages from her lover who’s she’s lost this entire time?   I have described it objectively in a narrator’s point of view so it can captivate you as the audience and create depth and mystery. I know that it will entice and captivate you, as much as it does me every time I’ve gone through to read it. I very much enjoyed editing and even though I wouldn’t say every emotion I’ve been through was enjoyable it was a positive release to express it with such a creative art. I had the picture pristine clear in my mind and I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished with my book Inspirations A Book of Poems.’ I hope you love it as much as I do. 

My book may be ordered straight from my publisher asjpublishing.com as an audio book, a pdf and a kindle. Or from smashwords as a pdf. there’s a 9 page sample for you to read of my book too.  You may also order the paper back from Amazon.com

You're my Inspiration

You're my inspiration!
Inspiration for being me,
never wanted to do much
until I met you.
You're my inspiration,
the reason why I wanna
get up in the morning
you're my inspiration
for wanting to live,
get up and go to work.
You're the air that I breathe.
You're my inspiration.
You have shown me love,
kindness, and so much more.
You're the reason I
want to call my
Husband til the
day I die.
You're my inspiration,
my inspiration.

Swimming So Many Eyes

Often seeing only reflections of myself,
Then I happily dive into oval dreams of blue.
Yet it never really stops with just one simple color,
There are wonderful rainbows to be found in skull's windows.

Although a silence which mostly seems to dwell within them,
I've heard music dance into my brain without entering ears.
Messages of hate and love having glanced my way many times, 
Still it's love I'll remember and hate I'll truly care to forget.

my beautiful motivator in action

i am dragging today
the energy level is low
your passion picks me up
the radiance of my resistance starts to grow
i am lying to myself
my bed is waiting for me to throw
your smile picks me up
i am beginning to feel like a star of this planned show
i am truly forcing it
my body wants to pass out this i know
your persistence uplifts my spirits
i feel so refueled from hair follicle to crusty toe
i am just not feeling it today
i cannot be revived even with an extra cup of joe
your leadership motivates my internal engines
i am all set now and ready to go

IN GOD'S WORDS

The ink in my pen writes and demands to be heard
It screams peace, justice, and hope as it pens God’s word 
As my ink flows, there are too many days that I cried 
From the truth of my past pain I witnessed my words of poetry haven’t lied
But I’m a man who was beaten, and his insanity denied
I never gave up my will to survive, so every day I tried
My fear of not knowing fueled my weakness but; it also gave my faith strength
Jesus’s love swathed my soul, his mercy and grace healed my body at length 
The lies of disease and defeat that served as unworldly stimulations
The words of Jesus gave me encouraging hope, which healed my past 
condemning revelations
With all my life’s tribulations and experiences that I’ve witnessed I know that 
Jesus will heal this nation
I write this poem to God to show my appreciation
The ink in my pen will never run out
Because Father God will never forsake and leave me without a doubt

Love-In One And All

Love-In One & All


Only tears of Joy
from Now on
Only fears destroy
the love you shone
like Rainbows
from your crown
Light flows
up & down
Serial romancing
in a continual loop
Spiral dancing
out of the hoop
of the dizzying spin
Indecision locks us in
to another heart burn
Pushed off the Carousel 
Awaiting another turn
to ride that Horse again
after falling on your Ass
and really feeling pain
Heal the bruise
with a feeling hand
Share the burden
with those that understand
and have a mind to care
You are never alone
There's always somebody there
to help you climb
the spiral stair
Back to the sublime
to help you to complete
the continuing journey
Steady on connected feet
You buy another ticket
to fly above the plain
and the ordinary
Maybe this time 
you will truly See
that Love you Seek
is in You & Me.

Rainbows

Feel free to chose how you live your life .....
Be free to chose either a husband or wife ...
feel free to decide what is that gives you joy ...
I really dont care if its a girl or its a boy ....
My message to you short and oh so sweet ...
If someone makes you happy ..I am glad for you to meet ...
We all deserve love and a feeling of hope...
So just make a choice and let no one interlope !!!!!

Carry

I stroll down to the wee burn
The snow feathers through the mist. 
I carry my camera
I carry my cares
I carry my requests
Yet I carry His presence.

Alone yet not alone
Out of the Spirit, into the mind
Impressions
Knowings
Perceptions.

I walk out of the mist
Back home
He carries me.

Fortieth Anniversary Salute

Friends and family have come together on this very special day,
To join in a celebration of love that has forever stayed!
Forty years ago, Danny took Opal's hand into his,
	And made a commitment to in love to forever be true,
A ceremoney was held in front of God and family
	Vows were made, two -- said "I do"
It was a love meant to last for all eternity!
		Life began anew!
In this world we live in today it isn't easy for love to survive,
You are an inspiration to us all, through all the trials and tribulations
	You let God be your guide!
		Love is forever true!
You have shared a lifetime together, made memories along the way,
	Memories that you shall treasure forever!
		Memories to forever stay!
You started out as two, soon your family grew,
	Two were joined by four -- Children in which to adore!
You watehed them grow with each new day, knowing one day,
	They would go their seperate ways.
You can take pride in knowing, the love you have built is forever growing!
	In the lives of your children, as well as in the lives of your grandchildren.
As we have all joined together today, I write this poem as my way to say,
	Congratulations on a lifetime accomplishment.
May the love that the two of you share, continue to be an inspiration to all those who 
care!

writing is all i've ever had

When I feel low
I pick up my pen and pad
It’s all i know
Writing is all I’ve ever had
I first started when i was fifteen years old
Just after my father passed
Couldn’t cry, writing helps to let my tears show
And to help me overcome my dark past
A few saw that I wrote poetry and called me gay
Even though it’s helped to chat up girls & start a few of my relationships
But I stood up in the tallest way
I wasn’t going to let them make me quit
Went through depression self-harmed for 4 years
But writing helped me to overcome the worst part of my life
This is why i always use my heart when i write
Staying up late into the dark of the night
3 or 4 in the morning still writing
Eyes struggling to stay open
Friends think I’m crazy
But I’ll be writing till my pens broken
Whenever I have or get the inspiration
I have to write
And I know my pen is waiting
I’ll write it on my hand if I don’t have a pad in sight
Sometimes I just need to get it out
Unlike people, writing has never let me down
It’s all i’ve ever had 
So just know to not disturb me when i have my pad

You Are My Inspiration

      
Inspiration is what makes a person, in life, want to keep on giving,
For without your sweet inspiration, I would have lost the zest for living.

You inspire me when everyday life seems to get me down, 
Just the feel of your tender touch is all it takes to bring me back around.

When it sometimes feels as if the world is closing its door on me,
Deep down inside I  know you will be there to let me back in because your heart is my key.

The Key to Love, Friendship, and happiness, 
because it is your inspiration that keeps me at my best.

Yes, Inspiration is what makes people want to be loyal, kind and true.
That inspiration is what you have given me to make me love you as I do
