Earned his name~
Suffered all the pain~
Under the hands of men~
Settled with hate against him~
Compassionately he forgave them still~
He loved us then and he always will~
Rising he gave us the right to survive~
Intoxicating he is to all of our lives~
Supplying our each and every need~
Thank you father, For blessing me~
Our king above kings~
Understanding he brings~
Radiant he is indeed~
Living for Christ is the greatest thing~
Only in him may you rest in peace~
Remember each day to trust and forgive~
Divided from him is no way to live~
Love surrounds us…though people take it for granite
Oh, but we’re unaware of it! We’re ignorant of it at times of tribulation
Vibrant, vermillion roses float in the swaying wind, like feathers, passing me by with a smile and a friendly wave
Everyone is embracing hate instead of love, embracing havoc instead of peace – WHERE IS THE LOVE?
I am longing to feel like I belong! The church bells repeats its penitent bells
Saddened by the fact that I’m trapped in my comfort zone of callous night…I want to be unchained from this solitary cave…but no angels tread the road that I’m currently on unfortunately
Hate rips my heart apart and throws it in the heartless fire…love is invisible like a caved in treasure
Ashamed because I always wanted to find avarice-devouring love, restoring joy to my absent-of-vanity verse
Rain descends like the sunset as my spirit ascends like the sunrise above the disconsolate clouds
Drenched in heartfelt relief…of experiencing love on another level – I’ll bring back to life my faith towards You once more
Tattered by heart’s wistful thumping…replace my heart with beauty’s caress and harmony, for I’m desperately in need of a savior
Owned by hatred, the monster that appears in my nightmares, the vile leader of rancorous wolves…
Fly away from the darkness that made you drink in desolation and devastation
Isolated by bliss and joy – overflowing with lamentation
Never able to find a mixture of serenity and exaltation…maybe I’ll find it in the forest’s quietude
Destined to unlock my heart’s desire…however, love is hard to find, for I’m a hopeless, romantic boy, foolish in love and frankly…blind!
Moments of quiet stillness
Each one a glittering
Diamond to the soul
At least once a day
To visit the silence
Open your heart
Nurture your dreams.
Mothers are truly God’s gift to the world and really for us
Oh, they will put things out, even a fuss with a simple touch
The essence of their being prevents us from being in a rush
Hear their words of wisdom and one will learn very much
Even as drivers they shift gears without scraping the clutch
Resting a child’s head, they simmer a cry with such a hush
Saving grace, loving us dearly like a hand with a royal flush
Vast oceans of light
In the night flowing over us through you and me cant you see
Now there it is again light light love so faithful
Ever seeing clearer there is again light light light treasures so unmeasurable in
Small weak vessel there is again light light light light
Oh ignites a fire consuming all
There yet nothing lost light light light light light
Rising brighter than yesterday will ever be light light light light light light
Under his guiding care
Everlasting so good there is again light light light light light light light resting in
Sense of humour, elevating our spirits
Musing over the simple things in life, rejoicing at what we find
Imagination stimulated, childlike, seeing the wonders in life
Light heartedness, laughing at one’s self!
Everything as it is meant to be, smiling, enjoying, the gift of life
L ove is everything to me
O nly people don’t seem to see
V oices from the inner regions
E arnestly telling us to simply care
I nside messages we cannot recognize
S tymied by years of ignorance and greed
A mazing dreams if we could but see
L inked into love through past lives unknown
L et the light shine through to a mind at peace
Judas betrayed Jesus’s whereabouts
End, was near
Son of God, knew this
Universe of the Son of the Divine Father, restored
Sins of man forgiven, Prince of our Universal domain, alive in the hearts of his children
L ovely as a beautiful rose
O nly you control my soul.
V enon of love is in the air
E verywhere is with you I want to be
L onging for your love and time with me
Y ou are the one for me and this is the way I want it to be.
Noble is the crown of darkness
Igniting flame of evening’s post
Gilded the landscape, stars enshrine
Here Selene tiptoes as co-host,
To hush-a-bye winds as prayers chime.

***Happy Easter Everyone***
Little babies are born
Into a world that has a
Vicious, 'Dog eat dog!'
Long days pass
Amid the chaos of war.
Ugly scars mar beauty, while
Gaiety is almost non-existent.
How can life be so cruel?
Listen to the call for peace, to
Visualize a better life, where
Everyone lives, laughs, and loves.
Somewhere out there
Illuminations still twinkle, just not here.
Lost in the absence of that God-awful sparkling light,
Everyone fighting is praying for a silent night.
Now on the battlefield a hush is commanded,
The warring factions apparently disbanded.
No one is pushing buttons or pulling a trigger,
Inside camps men lay exhausted by wars’ rigor.
Giving thanks to the almighty,
Hell will wait; so must Aphrodite.
Tears will wash away most reasons to fight.
For the Holiday Acrostic Challenge
Like a candle,
you sacrifice yourself...
In every tears you shed,
I know you suffered
Giving me warmth, hope and life
How noble is your love!
To die and lose yourself,
just to pull me away from darkness
Soothing sound of the murmuring breeze
Entwined with the sound of rustling leaves
Refreshing my tired worn-out spirit
Energizing it with the soothing bliss of
Nature's comforting balm of peacefulness
Inducing a state of deep tranquillity
Transporting me to a world of beauty as I
Yield to its deep and peaceful serenity
Filled with anger
Or lost hope, can't decide.
Running into you, I'd be back at
In my best interest to let it go, but its
Very difficult when my
Ego gets in the way. I want an apology first,
Nothing else. I don't care if you beg or plead. It's
Easy to show up and say you want me back
Somehow I wouldn't believe you
Shows I'm not ready to forgive you
Happier, lively days now to arise
A new year of dreams, some old will die
Prosperity comes when least expected
Phases of inspiration protected
Young, you live through tides of ages
Newly writing your life long pages
Enter into this new year divine
Writing the pages of your own time
Yield to the future with all its wonder
Ever changing a new life like thunder
Above the stars you fly then drift
Ringing in the songs of life's gift
Living in harmony
Living every day in peace
Is the sweetest way to live
Very precious is each day
I have a need to always give
Nourishment to everyone
Giving is my way
I live my life in harmony
No anger in each day
Happiness is what I feel
As each day comes along
Riding on the wings of joy
My heart all filled with song
Oh, such a wondrous life I lead
No desires, from these I’m freed
Young in heart, I am indeed.

N ow is the time to reflect on the past
E very mistake noted, you have to learn fast
W e must listen to what the young ones ask
Y uletide time for 3 wishes anew
E very minute brings hope just for a few
A ll prayers asked but not all replied
R easons for not granting not supplied
2 more wishes , health is one to retrieve
0 bad moments to perceive-
1 more wish , for love all over the world
3 cheers for the flag of peace to be unfurled.
< Fluff of billowy clouds
Looking like they have Angelic faces
Utterly smiling down on Mother Earth
Forecasting peace for all mankind
Foresakes for all sinners
Always, I will find no end
Remember with you, there's no room for loneliness
May I hold you tight
As it is the last?
Give me your love,
Give me your trust
Existence of sufferings,
Days of sorrows
Days of turmoil
Or in whatever wave or storm
Now and forever, you'll never be alone!
Hands holding champagne
Allowing all wishes to sparkle
People dancing under Mylar balloons
Pop corn with sweet caramel
Yankees caps with silver trim
Nobody dislikes silly buffoons
Everyone can be one of them
With the New Year's party colorful hats
Yell and be extravagantly festive
Ears deafened by loud music
America celebrates in Times Square
Rome calls for peace everywhere

Blue and wide is the blanket we have spread absorbing the sun's heat,
Enamored as Romeo and Juliet we feel what they felt: an increasing heartbeat;
Anticipating soft touches, followed by ardent kisses until moonlight arrives...
Cuddled as they were, we ignore the glances of everyone taken by surprise.
Hushed words must remain whispers, if we are to satisfy our sensual needs.
Bottles filled with messages are brought in by rolling waves, is ours still unread?
Lovely seagulls gather on splashing rocks, watching a lonely lady who weeps,
Another heartbreak for someone who was happy in life, now completely sad;
Knowing the pain of betrayal, she will learn by error not to trust anyone again.
Enticed by desire, we must roll back onto that soft blanket and revive romance,
Totally unaware of our surroundings, we lose ourselves and become intense;
Beholding what others never do, we know that faithful lovers always win.
There's exceeding joy, an indefinite yearning to explore love in ways so new,
Neither the distant stars nor the close moon refuse to shine on a blanket for two;
Grand as ever is their presence, luminous and breath-taking is their gleam...
Onward they will slowly move, while we still embrace and continue to dream.
K ind words expressed with a sure loving heart
S imply stated it brings peace filled with art
Y ou must find gentle romance where there’s none
A lways you will hold your heartfelt loved one

Having family and turkey is the sauce for the dressing.
All together giving warm wishes and especially blessing.
Prayers are the dearest thing to share even if apart.
Prayers whether said out loud or quietly in your heart.
Your spirit shared with others is a great gracious start.
Take heed of what you have been given each day that you live.
Heaven hears every word and thought that your soul does give.
Answers don’t always come the way we desire them too.
Never underestimate that they are heard above the blue.
Kingdoms of glory have no monetary goal to claim.
Spirits blessed in honor and true love has no shame.
God is here, he hears, yes he is alive though many doubt.
Insincerity of your inner peace will have no known clout.
Victory of all that will be given comes from your heartfelt soul.
Insecurity of your spirit shall defeat and buries your life’s’ goal.
Now warm your essences with peace and love for humanity.
God has set forth a plan for his glory and our life-forces eternally.
C hrist lives within our
H earts and he has
R isen from the dead
I norder to offer us
S alvation and eternal life
T oday and forever more.
H e’s our Savior and
A lmighty God, forgiving of
S ins and cleanses our souls.
R emembering always that he
I s our Father and
S aves us for all
E ternity and he will
N ever turns his back.
"I heard an angel speak last night and he said "write"
Hearing this made my heart sing and my soul contrite,
Each time I visit the resting place of so many bones.
Angelic statues look upon me, those of granite stones.
Recalling the words they said to me was so intense.
Dreaming was not a factor, for I was indeed awake.
Angels spoke to me and said write a poem from hence.
Now I pour my soul and spirit into words without forsake.
Angels, the army of God, guard the Heavens above us all.
Nearer to God, we all know they are, answering his call.
Graves are the resting place we visit our loved ones on earth.
Even though we know their souls traveled with loving worth.
Listen in the quietness and your ears will hear them speak.
Seek behind the shadows, be not afraid, and do not be weak.
Prepare to listen to beauty of nature that visits each day.
Every flower and tree holds the power of eternity’s way.
All your saddened heartaches will disappear, upon your listening.
Know the fervency I have found, in Angels eyes glistening.

These are the foundations of who we are
The events of history that have occurred have served to define us as a people
And a nation !!!
Heroes were born of this tragedy
While showing the finest example of America
Strength, honor and commitment
What we are about
We shall never fall
We shall never fail
The unity of this nation is unbreakable
Eric (and sometimes not)
Connecting with loved ones will help you
Overcome obstacles and experience happiness.
Nothing is more powerful than love.
Take the time, slow down
Enjoy those smiles, giggles, practical jokes
Noises the dogs make when they play
Thankful for life every second, of every day, in every way
Light purple in color most of them grow,
Instant beauty when they bloom in the spring,
Love is the language the lilac does bestow.
Aroma of the gods it does bring.
Creating such peace, song birds sing.
