Reflection of an old man

As I gaze upon a frail old man opposite me He looks at me and a smile appears on his face I decide to stop and talk to him for a while To reflect upon those years gone by Old man, where has your life gone? Time has flown by, doesn't life moves so fast Can you remember when you were younger? Handsome man with long dark hair, the ladies loved, but its all gone now, not even any grey patches A gleam in your eye just like James Dean, but your face is old and wrinkly now Your hands were so strong, but now shake and shiver Like a stallion, your strength was of legends, but through the years you became so weak and fragile Do you remember all the loves? All those hearts your broke? The one that broke your heart? I know she skips through your mind from time to time Such a beautiful woman, full of class, you thought one day you would marry, have lots of children and die happy. Funny how life works out, how it never goes to plan What you have today is never what you thought it would be Do you remember all those who hurt you? Through time you learnt to forgive, life is too short for grudges I know you miss your real beloved, your precious mother, who sacrificed her life for you Who held you so close the day you were born, sadly, you lost her so young Life was hard with so much poverty, and I know you wonder what happened to your childhood, but you got through and learnt how to spread love You didn't let the demons defeat you, because your were drawn to the angels Think about all the happiness you brought, how many tears you wiped away and how you listened But what about those dreams you had? Do you have many regrets? Or is life too short for that? Do you feel you have left behind a legacy? I see loneliness in your eyes, everyone you loved, has left in the end. Are you happy with what you will leave behind? Do you like what you see in the mirror? As, I turn away from the mirror, and tears roll down my face I think to myself, what happened to the fun and the adventure Whatever happened to all those passengers? What happened to me? But, then I remind myself, life is what it is and everything happens for a reason Some you win, some you lose Life is too short for regret It's good to reflect, but also good to be content...

When the storm clouds boil around me, 
And the lightning splits the sky--. 
When the howling wind assails me,
And life's sea is rolling high--
When my heart is filled with terror,
And my fears, I can't allay--
Then I find sweet peace and comfort, 
When I simply stop and pray.

When the things of life confound me,
And my faith is ebbing low--
When my trusted friends betray me,
And my heart is aching so--
When the night seems black and endless,
And I long for light of day--
Then I find a silver dawning,
When I simply stop and pray.

There are things beyond the heavens
I can't begin to understand,
But I know that God is living,
And I know He holds my hand.
Yes, I know He watches o'er me
All the night and all the day--
And He's always there to hear me
When I simply stop and pray.

Little By Little

Above the sea another ocean and just as blue Sailing upwind is all impossible But don't give up yet Little by little I come to you We' d catch each wave We'll ride the tide Little by little,We'll make it right I don't believe in fairies but I believe in you And I know,You know Little by little you come to me just the way I do Together We can make it One pillow shared by two Our sailor moon will take us above the sunset hue Years robbed away our passion but could not steal our dream In our dream all is possible Our lost wings We'll redeem With our wings We do wonders Our freedom makes us whole We'll let dead stars shine their light in the dark night of our soul.

Snowflakes Melt Our Paper Hearts

Too many cold nights would follow these hours FIrst frost will destroy the blooming moonflowers Because,WInter goes and WInter comes Snowflakes melt our paper hearts I want to preserve moments before they' ll be the past I just want to hold you and make each second last I want to taste your sweet words breathing velvets on my lips I want to feel your kisses treading softly on my hips I need to hear your lyrics whispered in my ear I want to let my hair down cascading on your tear I want to beg for your love Be fondled by your touch Want you to give me butterflies Tickle and make me blush I don' t want to make memories But you won't be here One day I'd call your name pretending you're still there Too many cold nights would follow these hours FIrst frost will destroy the blooming moonflowers Because,WInter goes and WInter comes Snowflakes melt our paper hearts Wet rain will cover palm prints in the forgotten sand New fingers trace your laugh lines where I no longer stand Stars wouldn't recall our waltz dance and places that we've been They won't remember falling in once upon a dream

You’ve changed my life completely
Can’t bear it when we‘re apart
For every waking moment
You are forever in my heart

I can’t stop smiling when I think of you
Love everything you say and do
Can’t wait until there comes a time
When I know you’re truly mine

A word from you and I'm wearing a silly grin 
You're the cream in my coffee, the sugar in my tea
I feel I can face the challenges of life and always win
You have become the missing part of me 

Because of you I now feel whole
My heart is full and at last I'm content
I feel your warmth in the depths of my soul
Every second with you is a second well spent

Just a smile from you and my heart skips a beat
With you in my life I am fully complete
We have our whole life ahead to share
You’re the love of my life no other can compare 

A million beautiful butterflies landed on us as we slept
They carry us to paradise where loving souls are kept 
Here we're given holy blessing for the relationship we share
The angels smile in heaven when true love is in the air

He’s out of my life
Because he’s got a wife
And I don’t know whether to laugh or cry
If I see him now I’d whack him in the eye
But if I had a knife
I’d pass it on to his wife

He would hold my hands
We’d make love on the sands
To think for two years he was here
He had the best of both worlds now he lives in fear
So I better not expand
Or I’ll soon be on remand!

So I’ve learned that I’m not his possession
And I’ve learned that this guy I hate
Now he’s gone and I’ve got depression
But I’ve learned too late

He's out of my life
Gone back to his wife
Guess I loved him but found out he lied
If I get my hands on him I’ll end up inside
And it cuts like a knife
But the rat is out of my life

It's been a long time on the bump and grind.
There's so much that I could tell.
Inside and outside, I have scars to find.
I've been living through this hell.

But you...turned my life around...but you...
I wasn't in the right frame of mind,
To give my heart away.
It seemed impossible to find,
The night to my day.
But you...walked into my life..but you
Convinced and completed
You were there when I

It was a rough road on recovery.
You're smile eased all my pain.
somehow you forgive the hard side of me.
You give with nothing to gain.

But you... turned my life around..but you
When you smiled on my darkest days
You are my loving light.
I don't need to fear lonely anymore.
My life turns out all right.
When you...walked into my life..when you
Said you'd be my wife..
You were there when I needed...only you.

are like my thoughts
falling down into my mind
sending goose bumps down
my spine

Their cool aftermath
cleanses me of my thoughts
of fear and uncertainty 
about what tomorrows
pain may bring

They make me feel,
wet with creativity
drenched in my optimistic
illumination. glistening
raindrops, my thoughts
leave paths of pleasurable
distress, and hope of success
which road, less traveled
may be the best

Forget an umbrella
when these raindrops
arrive, I walk outside
arms open wide

Ready to Receive
the mind storm may bring
because raindrops are
as my thoughts, falling
down into my mind
sending shivers down
my spine

My brain, yearns
for the rain, to wash away
the pain, tomorrows worry
does bring
One special drop
could speed up life's clock
to the time
I can handle my own
and not dwell inside my controllers

For raindrops are,
like my thoughts
falling down into my mind
sending goose bumps
down my spine

Make this life easy

How long will it take for you to see
Life is just an illusion, it’s gonna pass eventually
The flesh is just a lie
Eventually you’re gonna die
But your soul will live on
Rejoice in this don’t mourn
God made you to die 
It’s why you were born
Last night GOD spoke to me
Your pain will end soon, so brother don’t worry
This world will soon pass
None of this is gonna last
But the word of GOD will live on
From the dusk till the dawn, on, on and on
He said pity the living, not the dead
I replied back to him
I meant no disrespect and this is what I said
Imma hold my head high and do my part until the end

So make this life easy
This life is just a lie
Soon you’re gonna die 
So why you killin him for
He’s just another brother, another lost soul
Just make this life easy
Just make this life easy
Just make this life easy
Just make this life easy

Sister and brothers on streets
Instead of helping them get on their feats
We’re worrying about ourselves
It’s an endless cycle
man’s just looking out for himself
It seems clear to me
That nobody is free
Rich, white, black or poor you’re all the same to me
Trapped in a prison ruled by money
Don’t you think it’s funny 
Endless numbers and papers rules us 
We’ll never be happy
It’s not a mystery
The world is falling apart
I want it to end already, when will it start
Until then I guess I’m going to do my part
So while you’re here just make this life easy

So make this life easy
This life is just a lie
Soon you’re gonna die 
So why you killin him for
He’s just another brother, another lost soul
Just make this life easy
Just make this life easy
Just make this life easy
Just make this life easy

This poem is inspired by Tupac's Life Goes On.

Her wave

How strikingly gray
as the spring rain 
to the ground

The green
and brown
all wet
no glittering from
the sun's wink

I walk,
not skip today
and the train
slowly slips away

So drifts
her wave

Fragrant Love

My Beloved,
If the Mediterranean waves, could carry me to your arms,
I'd wake up, to your whispers,enchanted by your charms.
If the Wafting Wind could breeze me to the your bed, 
Our longing lips would kiss and hiss,In hungry emotions wed.
If this love i feel, could linger in your Heart,If we could live
our dulcet dreams,escape from fantasies,and never be apart.
If "I "could be with "You",and "You" could be with" Me"
We'd watch the the Stars at night twinkling tranquility,
Sparkling in secret splendor,shining Our blissful destiny.
If we could be together,till the day,"Forever",I'd hold on 
to your hand,be your sufficient other,the  dedicated lover 
and  even your bestfriend.I'd be your daily listener,your passion,
your romance,I'd love you to infinity,till the Universal ends.
If We could lie  together on Gossamer  mattressed lands,
on threaded  silken sheets made by cobwebs' perfect hands,
If We could walk,laugh and embrace on gold warm Honeyed Sands.
If we could hear the sweetest sound of shells and pebbles play,
If I could call your name and hear your husky voice in answer
everday,If I could turn around to find you,looking my way,
If I could be with you,and live "the promise" of today,
Tomorrow I'd still be there,a Lavender in your grey.

"Not for the contest,but tnks Andrea..for your inspiration, with your contest blog"

The Whisper Of The Wind

The leaves they dance... the leaves they fall.... the whisper of the wind
One more season... one more year... the change, it now begins
For many years your presence felt... the trees prepare to sleep
As I wonder at your work... your voice begins to speak

The trees they bow as you approach... your power now displayed
I close my eyes and drift away... my thoughts of life replayed
Breaking through the whistling wind... another I do hear
Who is this you’ve brought with you....  whose memories I hold dear?

"It’s me my love... I’ve heard your thoughts"…".I sought and found a way"
Please tell me where you’ve been my love... what do you have to say?
"My time did come"…"I had to leave"…"so much you do not know"
What power brings you now to me…on winds that billows blow?

"I only came to say hello"… "to see you one more time"
Times did change…I did move on…another love is mine.
"Listen to the words I say" …"and cherish memories all"
I’ve thought of you so many times…your memories often call

"The wind it blows"... "I must now leave"..."but hear these words my love"
"Enjoy your life"…"Do all you can"…"Until your journeys done"
"Your voice will speak to her one day"..." when winter winds do blow"
"The voice within the whispered wind"…"only she will know"

"One day the leaves will dance and fall"... "and she will think of you"
"Your life will be remembered then"…"the voice will then be you".
The leaves they dance... the leaves they fall... the whisper of the wind. 
One more season…one more year…..the change…it now begins

YOU AND ONLY YOU Strewn pebbles after a tide ballet for a pause So am I when still you are not by my side but God is good that even those pebbles when slowly gathered-- spell a good use... Pieces of me I consider blues and black Gladly, you constellate: creating a mosaic no longer you settled as a friend that consoles but you built something even rusts can't corrode --------------------------------------------------------------------- Vous et nul autre, Vous et nul autre, You and only you... From smile of sunrise to weeping break of night my love, you and only you I long to have and hold I want our eyes spark then lock on same shine I want your arms' warmth wrap around mine Vous et nul autre, Vous et nul autre, You and only you... Sensing strongly tonic trembles 'neath my fingertips I wonder what God was thinking when He created you for meeting you plays a life spring in crown of trees. To commitments said with kisses drawing life's game, Vous et nul autre, Vous et nul autre, You and only you... You and only you, I want to walk with forevermore. To your eyes, your nose and then to your lips, each kiss a speech of my love and thanks for thee, my Darling this I promise to do through eternity. ___________________________________________________ ***vous et nul autre (French) - You and nobody else but I reword it to --- You and only you. ***"I wonder what God was thinking when He created you" is a line from the song WHEN GOD MADE YOU by Natalie Grant and NEW SONG*** Music to my ears poetry contest - Poetry Contest Sponsor Name - Silent One Olive ELoisa Guillermo 9:58 pm, July 31, 2015

Life Is Like A Maypole

 Seasons come and seasons go,
up and down like a maypole.
People come and people go,
weaving ribbons on a maypole. 

Somewhere in the spring,
I starting singing everything.
I sung about the gardens green,
Colors were the words I seen.
The fresh blue sky smiling,
Tan sands ants were piling.
Nature fit my songs like a glove,
I found you, I sing about love.

 Seasons come and seasons go,
up and down like a maypole.
People come and people go,
weaving ribbons on a maypole. 

You took me to mountains high,
White wings from angels helped me fly.
Red lips I kissed exploding emotion.
Drinking you like a magic potion.
Hearts and fingers weaved as one.
Come that summer celebration of fun.
You and me, one and one, a whole,
But remember life is like a maypole.

 Seasons come and seasons go,
up and down like a maypole.
People come and people go,
weaving ribbons on a maypole. 

Winter settled with cold as ice blue.
You left me with a darkened hue.
Everything crashed like rocks on ice.
But Winter, she proved, she could be nice.
Holiday decorations lit up the sky.
With Santa and helpers I could fly.
Seeing children's smile, shades of glee,
Reminded me of all the colors of me.

 Seasons come and seasons go,
up and down like a maypole.
People come and people go,
weaving ribbons on a maypole. 

Everywhere I look, spinning round and round.
Life is filled with relationships, colors, and sound.

Save me Cinderella

Save me Cinderella,
Hold my hopes in your hands
Struggle to save my soul,
And balance others demands.

Singing with the songbirds
Making music with mice,
Fairytales do come true,
Once we find paradise

Shining with the style,
Of radiant beauty
Take nothing for granted,
See joy in all you see.

Save me Cinderella,
Hold my hopes in your hands
Struggle to save my soul,
And balance others demands.

Let me love like your heart
Weathered but not worn out,
There is joy in your eyes.
Teach me what its about.

Save me Cinderella,
Give me back my childhood
When there was hopeful days
and princes were still good.

Friends For Life

I hold three magic rocks, in my hand
Rolling them over and over and over
Leaving this reality behind, far behind

The door seems far, far away
Little steps take me to the entrance
Through it, the highway drones a lonely blur
I can look at old photographs, without blinking through tears

Friends I remember glow with fantastic colors!
Purple and peach, burgundy and blue, crimson and cream!
Laughter spills in lollipops when they see me!
I want to savor every flavor!
Show them the peace, our friendship endured!
United again, we skip across the Milky Way!
Catching up with the Comet Hale Bop!
For a fantastic ride!

No dark shadows block what dreams may come...

                                        When I feel alone and sad

A man i'll never be

Growing up 
My father and me
He did the best he could
Because once we were three
Events happened
And then we were two
His rise and demise
As his life withdrew
Looking back, to the memories we had
They never lasted for years
Some great, some sad
For an ill man he did his best
And in me, I have his zest
He never recovered from the loss of his son
To say goodbye to the elder one
He was hospitalised for months and years
On the day he was taken, uncontrollable tears

The years we shared 
Fifteen in all
In every one
He helped me grow tall
To appreciate, what life will give
Remember your past, let your future live

He's all around me every day
For on the wind I hear him say
Enjoy your life, live happily
I hope you get to the land of the free

My reply to you Dad
As you look down on me
The Aura around you
The man I hope to be

" Happy Fathers Day to you Dad, I still miss you, your loving son James "
         To be read listening to Boston's < A Man i'll never be >

Black People

Thugs in the street with their pants hung low
White T's and Tims with two golds in the front row
Philly fades or braids, du-rags, and fitted hats
Sweat towls around the neck 
Baseball caps turned to the back

See some people would call them hoodrats 
because of where they live at
Not knowing the situation 
Seeing the problem 
Or trying to give back
Instead they just judge the book by it's cover
Instead of calling the book your brother

See if we don't stick together 
And if we don't love each other
And stop calling us women B's and Hoes
for we all know that's not the way love goes

So black people lets take a stand 
Reach out and touch your brothers hand
Lets make this world an equal place

What It's Like to Sing the Blues

I was born to the winter
Carried into this world with the wind
The snowflakes were my mother
And my father was the hail that ushered in
I've never been a man of this earth
But I've always been one with it
Born to the tune of the sunrise
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
Carry me away with the sunset
When I'll pass away without a fuss

Yet for now, the fire burns forever inside me
It flickers to my AM radio
No one understands my perspective
They refuse to take my point of view
But if they ever walked a mile in my shoes
They might know what it's like to sing the blues

A Lover's entrée to March

How far can you fall and get back up 
How high can you jump
And keep your feet in the sand 

To touch grace and fall from within
Next to you I was out of my skin
I missed you yesterday and you leave tomorrow

A life spent in the shadows of lushly tint 
Smoke your waves 
Exhale the freshness of your menthol scent 
Home is what you call shelters that need no defense 

I’ll send 
You’ll say goodbye
I’ll send again
You won’t reply

If love 
Is the appreciation of another’s existence
Then goodbye
Is the anticipation of seeing you again

You and I, we’ll cruise the shores
Together we’ll settle with the wind 
The joy of a small hut, a lovers den

You’ll send
I’ll wonder why
You’ll send again
I will not reply

Aliens Choking on Oxygen

I was here I was here First I was here First Take a breath of oxygen Your choking on confidence The lights are on but you cant see Slit wrist Bleed You took my life from me Let us come back You stole the air we breath Let us come back I was here first Choking on oxygen I was here first Choking on oxygen I was here first Choking on oxygen You took my life from me Let us come back You stole the air we breath Let us come back Choking Like Aliens Choking on oxygen

Move On

Move On
(Anacreontic Verse)

Oh you tiresome 
earthen road,
this traveler 
faithfully has walked 
your rocky path
of mystery.
I've traveled far 
and traveled wide;
tired, I pause beside 
your peaceful stream.
Its quiet soothes 
my soul to long for
sleep in endless dream.
The fire is made, 
the chores are done
why must I ever 
move along?
Just let me lay 
upon your bank
to hear your carefree,
rippling song.
But I must move on...
on and on!
Make haste while there 
is sun and light.
More roads to walk, 
more hills to climb,
before the dark 
and cold of night.

The Path

Oft times the path we choose in life Be it the wide or straight and narrow. We think we're traveling all alone But God knows of the falling sparrow. While on this path we oft succumb To the world and it's sinister ways. We meet those that we grow to love In which we share our lonely days. Together while enduring the valleys We gaze toward the mountains tall. Wondering if we'll reach the summit And who will catch us when we fall? Mayhap we think of some friendship That due to path was neglected or wasted. We do our utmost to reclaim the years To restore that which once was tasted. But life is a Smorgasbord of alternatives So divergent path's, make life, you see. I pray that if our paths never re-entwine We've both chosen the one meant to be. Dedicated to a special friend, Shirlene

God Never Gives Up

A lump of clay upon God's wheel, Twas such a simple start. The gentlest of hands I could feel, As He reshaped my heart. If wrong things I may do or say, Discard me he does not. Like an earthly potter and his clay, God uses what He's got. A perfect vessel when he is done, Nothing fancy yet you see. But with God I must be number one, For He still works on me.

The Loneliest Teardrop

The life we choose the choices we make
Knowing how much to give knowing how much to take

Now this equation is not simple at least not for me to ascribe
For a lifetime worth of pain and not once have I cried

It's not remedies or reason for this affliction which I seek
For I am pleased with the joys I have given while not needing to weep

Yet I cant help but wonder though as yet I have not tried
Would my life had been much different were I able to cry

For I have seen the results of tears when they are freely shed
How embraces would soon follow with soft strokes to ones head

Now I can love and be tender without much effort or strain
Yet I am unable to give comfort when tears fall like the rain
But I will always be loving and Gods gifts to me I will share
And maybe the day I meet him in heaven will be the day I shed my tear

Open Doors

God will open doors
Normally shut by mankind
He will make a way

Slowly He Fades

She walks the paths less traveled
collecting wild flowers and fallen butterflies,
She knows that if she just keeps walking
she'll find herself where she once was,
Only she doesn't know which path to follow;

She sits in the seemingly endless field of sunflowers
singing silent songs of a distant tomorrow,
She believes that as the seasons change
she'll find herself closer to Him,
And she pretends not to notice the Sunflowers fade;

She dreams in the perfect forest solitude
gazing up at the Moon staring down,
She wonders, If she sends her wishes to the stars
will she find herself back in his arms?
But she remains there, alone, in the forest;

She runs through the pages in her mind
re-living those special moments they've shared,
She holds tight to the promise he made
she stirs it in with her lemonade,
But as the ice cubes melt
Slowly, He fades.

My Past

I refuse to drown in the happenings,
Of perhaps, sordid days, long spent.
For things filed "past" i cannot change,
So they lurk causing me to lament.

My past I liken to a "read only" file,
Where is stored both my days and deed.
Knowing the bothersome can't be removed,
I attempt to cover it with beneficial seed.

But no matter my depth of interment,
Or that from thoughts I've tried to ban.
Satan somehow manages to dig them up,
And stands ready with his watering can.

A Thought
If my past wasn't the teacher
From which I learned the most.
Then in life, I would consider myself failing.
