I Need Your Help Daddy

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

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

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

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

Sometimes in relationships

Sometimes in relationships our love defeats our lust, but sometimes not;
Sometimes in relationships our peace is kept by trust, but sometimes not.

Sometimes in relationships we, each to each, are hurt and held and healed;
Sometimes in relationships we share our heart and mind, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are lost lovers, our lives blaze with brighter bursts of passion;
Sometimes we are best friends, we balance with compassion, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are up-in-arms night and day, our battles are fought and won;
Sometimes we are at-loose-ends and struggle to be one, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are with others, together we entertain family;
Sometimes we are you and me; two is good company, but sometimes not.

I Must Go

---inspired by a story character of mine
------------------------------------------------------------------
Losing reality, losing my mind I try to stay with you but I'm falling behind This fate's going nowhere I'm left hurting inside Tomorrow's not coming What are you becoming Nothing is out there Pain and suffering forthcoming Nowhere to hide, I'm on my own Feeling so empty and alone Your hatred shines bright Your heart, a deadened stone This pain you inflict upon me Hurts greater than I'll ever let you see But still I love you so Though I know you can-will never love me I just hope you know That even though the love I want from you will never be so I'll always love you But now, before it hurts anymore, I must go...

Words Whisperer

You’ve swallowed my misery, 
My old self, just by a smile;
By letting me feel the mountains move, 
You’ve freed me, just by a smile;
My twisted thoughts,
Have been untangled by you, with just a smile;
I offer my body and soul to you, O my words whisperer,
You’ve whispered me a new life, just by a smile;
I offer myself to you O, Jamlaila,
You’ve made me your man, just by a smile.

We Lost More Than a Dad

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

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

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

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

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

I Miss You

When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
The stories of spring,
Of these past beautiful views,
Return back to me,
And fills my eyes with tears,
I miss you…
At least tell me this much,
That this moonlight comes to you,
And wakes up dreams in you,
And teases you too,
I miss you…
When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
The stories of spring,
Of these past beautiful views,
Return back to me,
And fills my eyes with tears,
I miss you…
When the moments of those days, 
Come by and touch you,
The memories of past days,
Take my sleep away,
I miss you…
When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
When my memory,
Brings tears to your eyes every moment,
When every breath of parting,
Becomes difficult to breathe,
Then forget everything around you,
And return to me,
Break every relation
And come decorate my dreams,
Don’t leave me after that,
When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
The stories of spring,
Of these past beautiful views,
Return back to me,
And fill my eyes with tears,
I miss you…
My heart aches for you…

Tell Me

I'm lost hurt and angry
Why did you take his life
I want, No I need to know
Tell me, Tell me why
I deserve to know

Haven't you done enough to him
What'd he ever do to you
He suffered his whole life
Suffered more than anyone deserved
Tell me, Tell me why you did it
I have a right to know

Why'd you let him born to them
Born to worthless parents
Parents who didn't care
They threw him away like garbage
Pawned him off on someone else
Tell me, Tell me why
Explain how you could do that

You gave him Polio
You let others treat him like disease
You took away the full use of his legs
You warped his hand and foot
Tell me, Explain to me why
I deserve to know

You let others think he was crazy
You let it go on for over year
You didn't stop it, Why
Tell me, Give me your reason
Answer me God, Help me to understand

You go and make matters worse
You gave him Cancer
You didn't give him a chance to fight back
You just jerked him away from us
Tell me, Tell me how
How you could be so cruel

How can others not question you
When others do it, It's murder
But when it's by your hand
It's your will, Their fate
Tell me, What makes you so different
Your no better than the demons knocking at the door

You heard me beg and plead
You know I'm not afraid to die
I was willing to carry it all for him
I was willing to take my Daddy's place
You didn't even let me say Goodbye
Tell me, Tell me why I couldn't take his place
Answer me God, you owe me that much

Oh Love

They do it without realizing,
They don’t really have a clue,
Reading between the lines,
Is something they just can’t do.

When there is an argument,
They think they're always right,
No matter what we say or do,
They didn’t start the fight.

They blame it on our hormones,
And never take the rap,
If they call us moody *****es,
Then they get a slap.

I'm Going To Write You A Love Song

Not by request
Not even my best,
Hoping you'll just select a poem
With no sense in the title...
No clue in the first line
That it is divine.
Pick one at random,
Perhaps previously ignored
By those who do not tarry...
Without songs or rainbows
No butterflies and no lies.
Only words needing to express
The current stress of my life
At this particular moment,
Sent out in poetic line
To be classified as good, bad or
Indifferent...
Browse here, through my pages
Of verse
Not rehearsed...
Tell me what you think or not
But Ive got to move on now
To the next twist and turn
Of thoughts
Wrought 
By  circumstances beyond my control
My bold mind running free.

When You Go To Sleep

I dread the day when I get "the call"
When they tell me that you've gently slipped away
Well, at least I hope it will be gentle
As you close your eyes and say goodnight
Despite my fear of your imminent passing
My darling, you don't know the times I've prayed
And asked God to take you Home to Him
To come and rescue you from this hellish world
A world in which you've been imprisoned
Unable to walk or talk; your two greatest assets
Enslaved to the bonds of Alzheimer's disease
When you go to sleep, my love
Your spirit will soar to the highest heights
And there you'll be with our Father in Heaven
No more the feeling of indignity
Forget about forgetting!
You'll remember every glorious experience
And spend your time singing praises with the angels
You'll also get to meet our relatives
Who have gone to sleep before us
Our little son is waiting excitedly
To run and fling his arms around you!
He'll take you on a guided tour
Of the endless gardens and babbling brooks 
Flowing with life that will never cease
Pain will not be familiar with your name
Fatigue? Just a distant memory
Sickness and disease cannot touch you
And the prospect of death, you'll never know
You can wander around from country to country
Fulfilling your desire to travel the world
Then off you go and explore the stars
That light up the beauty of this earth
Examine the moon, planets and galaxies
Discover Daddy's handiwork
And witness first hand, the beginning of life
As the Big Bang is replayed
Please make sure to keep an eye on us here
Just to see that we're doing okay
Find out what your children are up to
And watch their kiddies turn into parents themselves
Of course, you'll be waiting for the day
When I come and join you for eternity
Until that day, I will always miss you
Thank you so much for coming into my life
Now, lie back, relax, and close your eyes
Go to sleep, my love, you have nothing to fear

My Love my Muse

I beg for a haven prison please let open your gates
freed of enraptured weak thoughts now still your love dominates

My rivals for your love shall all be all rejected 
thoughts love turning their vintage wine a sour inflected

Smashing statues broken mirrors just convexities
captive my loves wounds just absorbing concavities

The hunt is over and I hear the call to prayer
lover a man contented now no more solitaire

On the Bus

Every week day, same time, same bus, he is there, and I’m careful not to stare
But I can’t take my eyes off his curly shoulder length hair, hopelessly wondering

A face not popularly handsome, but such kind bluey- green eyes, deeper than the ocean
Tall, not slender and a quirky style of dress, not to impress. He kept me curiously wondering

Briefcase, serious and tanned, but scraggy like a boxers face, taken from place to place
Manicured hands with no adornment, no subtle signs of betrothment, I smiled hopefully wondering

Today he caught me in my stare, my face flushed pink, I look away I couldn’t think 
But I saw his smile and for that short while my heart skipped a beat, as I sat motionlessly wondering

The bus had halted, where we both alight, my mind was racing as I caught sight
Standing on the kerbside, holding out his hand to me, I reached out breathlessly wondering 


Hand held firm but gentle, and like cheshire cats smiling, arrayment of colours so beguiling
‘Have you time for a coffee’ I heard him say, my reply what a perfect day, still wondrously wondering



sdited version, hope it's right this time

I Believe

I believe that the sun shines after the rain
I believe if you don't get hurt you'll never gain
I believe in not doing things the easy way
I believe that being selfish doesn’t pay

I believe in a second chance
I believe in a life long romance
I believe there is life after death
And standing up to a life of mess

I believe in love at first sight
I believe that revenge isn’t right
I believe that first impressions last
And there is nothing better then a good laugh

I believe that dreams do come true
I believe there's destiny for me and you
I believe that good things come to those who wait
I believe love never arrives too late

I believe something good comes from something bad
I believe that for tears of happiness there are tears of sad
I believe everyone has a guardian angel
And the good you do will be rewarded well

I believe sometimes there is no explanation
I believe money can't buy people's affection
I believe you don't know what you've got until it's gone
I believe a new day arrives with every dawn

I believe a smile can be contagious
I believe in being very outrageous
I believe in living with no regrets
I believe that life is as good as it gets

I believe that God watches over us
I believe the little things are worth the fuss
I believe you have each friend for a reason
I believe you will get punished for treason

I believe that what comes first is family
I believe we should all live in harmony
I believe in making the most of a beautiful day
And it's not the end until everything's okay

I believe absence makes the heart grow fonder
I believe you will lose if you sit and wonder
I believe every experience teaches you a lesson
And nothing cures better then a drinking session

I believe everyone has one true love
I believe sometimes we need a little shove
I believe the whole world is a stage 
I believe we only get better with age

I believe that to learn you have to live
I believe that to love someone you have to give
I believe one moment can change your life
And there's still help when you’re in strife

I believe everyone has one true friend
I believe love helps a broken heart mend
I believe in the power of a song
And things will change before too long

I believe living is the best experience
I believe in not laughing at other people’s expense
I believe it’s hard to watch a lover leave
And when they’re gone all you can do is breath

I believe to always look on the bright side
I believe that life is just one big ride
I believe when I die people will grieve
But it’s ok because I believe

love

    If there was a shop of happiness
    And If I knew about it
    I would buy every happiness for you
    Even if my life be the price of it..!

  Kaash koi khushiyon ki dukaan hoti
    Aur mujhe uski pehchaan hoti
    Khareed leta har khushi aapke liye
    Chahe uski keemat meri jaan bhi hoti..!

Ghazal for you, my reader

I hold the rainbow and an arrow, for you, my reader;
The thrill of good  tomorrow for you, my reader;

The butterfly of happiness will fly from our book
To find a reason and a certitude, for you, my reader;

You don`t remember this verse I took 
In the hand of light, for you, my reader

It was at very beginning a word, for you, my reader
And wonders made by Lord, for you, my reader

Temptation of good , to see the truth ,this festival 
of hope with favorable look, for you, my reader

And here, YOUR NAME I put, while writing a Ghazal:
A nosegay of perfumes, a tender touch for you, my reader

Dekhoon ayina tu teray akss ka gumaan hota hai

Dekhoon ayina tu teray akss ka gumaan hota hai,
Meri ankhoon main teray chehray ka samaan hota hai,

Youn teri khoj main sahra ka badal ban ke,
Meray kadmon ka safar pher say rawan hota hai,

Janay anjanay main likh doon jo kbhi tujh pay ghazal,
Mera her shair teray husan ka biyaan hota hai,

Teri palkoon pay jo jugnoo ki chamak main dekhoon,
Behti nadia main sitaroon ka jahaan hota hai,

Her aik shab khawaboon main jo tera rang dekhoon,
Meri her neend main teray dil ka makaan hota hai..

Ret mein oas ki boond si ho tum

Din mein naye ujaale si
Raat ki khushnuma nami si ho tum

Kehkahe lagaati zindagi si
Khwahishon ki parwaangi si ho tum

Aah bharte aasman si
Sikudti hui haya si ho tum

baadlon mein salvaton si
Chudiyon ki kashmakash si ho tum

Heena ke gudhe rang si
Lahu ki rehnuma si ho tum

Saanso mein ghulti chaah si
Jism ki razdaan si ho tum

Simat ke neend mein khwab si
mukammil saath si ho tum….

Koi parwaaz si ho tum….

Teri ada meray chehray pay nikhar lay aye.

Chamakti rahti hain ankheen abgeno ki taraha
Nigha uthi tu saroor-o-khumar lay aye.

Sakoon sa rahta hai teri suhbat main aksar
Mareez-e-ishq kay liay sabr-o-qarar lay aye.

Yeh shartay mohabat thi kay wada yad rahay
Woh sham ajab thi jo tera intezar lay aye.

Ghazal

The clouds are walking and smile a bit, above the green for joy inviting;
They call a playful rain; the green is shinning; the blue is winning…
And your heart is reading my Ghazal, but rhythm is missing:
Because from ink, ascends so sweet and white, the merry dove.
An arrow flies above the rest of world, the mirror’s love,
At other side of our night, when sun and moon are meeting:
A world of statues in which the dreams were pouring down
Since the beginning of the time, since nothing had been (known); 
But clouds -huge butterflies, and maybe stars, just dreamt the light… 
And those blind dreams were swimming to sweet season of love:
Here is the same river of time, where God forgot his blessed glove.
Unforgettable love at first sight, whose light follows the dove,
And crosses the world and the heavens of That One Love!

Miss

I miss smiles in the morning time
I miss laughing until I cry
I miss long conversations that last through the night
I miss the ease in the fear of facing the unknown
I miss hearing the music of love in a moan
I miss the secrets shared between two sacrificed souls
I miss you laying beside me and keeping me warm
I miss the closeness of falling asleep in your arms
I miss the syncing rhythm of two beating hearts
I miss the desire of the feeling that somebody needs me
I miss the passion of somebody wanting to please me
I miss the magic of the love that I still believe in

Mohabat mar nahi sakti

Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
badan main jo khoon ki manind,
jo hai aik janoo ki manind,
subha aur sham kay hr pal main,
jo hai aik sakoon ki manind,

Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
Woh rahti hai dua ban kar,
Woh chalti hai hawa ban kar,
Woh sumandar kay talatam main,
Machalti hai wafa ban kar,

Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
Woh sansoon kay sath chalti hai,
Rang ban kar nikharti hai,
Ghata ban kay woh cha jaye,
Woh khushbo ban kay mahkati hai,

Mohabat kaisy mar jaye,
Woh ebadat meray rab say hai,
Tahajud kay saray sajdoon main,
Woh rafaqat hr aik shab say hai,
Woh laboon pay vird karti hai,
Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
Mohabat mar nahi sakti..

Sensous Serenade

Ivory flaxen hair swaying in the breeze
To run my fingers through those locks: my very desire.

Face that`s not fair but clear and bright as the moon
To caress that caramel visage: my very desire.

Eyes round and deep like a swirling abyss
To lock my gaze into those orbs: my very desire.

Lips of blooming crimson curve into a smile
To grace that pout with a kiss: my very desire.

Lady, you came up to me like a white wave,
rousing my heart and body, my very desire.

ulfato ke parinde

ulfato ke parinde dekho ur chale
tha falak paar jana kiya faisla
na koi rok payega unhe aazma dekh lo
ho gaya hai ibtada mohbbat ka silsila

maina bole hai raho mei mushkil bari
kaise thamu tera hath batla de zara
chhor k aasiya apna sang tere kaha ur chalu
tera chhota sa dil hai aur mera kad hai bara

mohabbat tjse karna tha kya aisa gunah
jo zamane ne mujhko yun thukra diya
bs tere liye kaise sara jaha chhor du 
tote se maina ne keh diya alvida

bhar k ashq ankho mei tota dekhta reh gaya
chali jaa rahi thi zindagani uski usse rooth kar
maina k pyar mei range sare sapne jo the
pal mei bikhre wo sare tabhi toot kar

paas jaa kar k bola aey meri hamkadam
zindgani mai tjh par loota jaunga
jo hasrat ho teri toh jaan bhi maang le
haste haste is duniya se chala jaunga

palko pe hi bitha k rkhunga aey meri hamnashee
jhulaya karunga jhula banakar apni baahon ka
koi taqleef tujh ko na chhu payegi
bas mera sath nibhane ko keh de ik haan

sun k ye maina ki ankho mei nami aa gayi
soche kaise lu bewafai ka apne sir tohmat
mohabbat se paak koi bhi rishta nahi
khuda ka shukrana dene ko tote ki sohbat

muskura k dono fir sang ur chale
tha falak paar jana kiya faisla
 na koi rok payega unhe aazma dekh lo
 ho gaya hai ibtada mohbbat ka silsila

Still

I know how it feels, I been there before.
Don't wanna go to sleep, don't wanna wake up all alone.
I still want you.
The nights seem to last forever, seems the darkness never ends.
Tired wet eyes meet the sunrise, the heartache rebegins.
I still miss you.
First breath of the morning barely reaches the lungs, first glance in the mirror burns down to the soul.
I still need you.
Silent night, the lights go off. The heart starts longing, the tear drops start to fall.
I still love you.
It’s crazy how your image still takes my breath away, how my heart still pounds in desperation when I hear your name.
I still want you.
I try to clear my mind in the still of a moment but before I can do it your memory takes over.
I still miss you.
I need a familiar face, I feel so alone. The worst pain you can imagine and it can't be consoled.
I still need you.
As the sun begins to set I can feel that sunken breath. I’m forced to hold my composure until I'm alone in bed. 
I still love you.

The Taste of Bliss

Your face illumines the night
It fills my soul with delight
Your body pressed next to mine
Makes my world dazzle with light

There is no present nor past
Only my heart beating fast
Your smile stops the hands of time
Promising that love with last

We look at the mighty sea
And I hear your pledge to me
That your love is much stronger
Than the sea could ever be

You turn my face to the sky
And whisper that it’s no lie
That the pure celestial lights
Can not reach your love on high

You run your hands through my hair
You swear an oath and a dare
That as long as life does last
Your love will always be there

You say that I’m your treasure
That your love has no measure
You ask me this to believe 
That life holds only pleasure

You seal your love with a kiss
Making my heart beat a miss
And as my world starts to spin
I know I’ve tasted sheer bliss

Ghazal

I  met a man with scars in New Orleans
He worked a hustler bar in New Orleans

He went to The Double Play bar by bus
He did not own a car in New Orleans

He offered his body to hungry men
In sex, he would go far in New Orleans

He protected me from men on the street
Yet he had battle scars in New Orleans

War had taken a toll on his psyche
His actions were bizarre in New Orleans

I controlled his behavior but sometimes 
I loved him from afar in New Orleans

If someone insulted me in the club
With that man he would spar in New Orleans

He watched over me and looked after me
My heart was left ajar in New Orleans

I grew to care for his six foot four frame
Hard to say au revoir in New Orleans

He always called me Mr. Ethington
Caring far above par in New Orleans.
