Twas A Full Moon Shining - Collab

Twas a full moon shining on a cool summer night And hound dogs were howling at its silver shadowed light. I heard but a whisper on the cool evening breeze, Twas the voice of a woman I used to chase and tease. Our love was forever, at least I used to think it so. Then came the day she left me; I wondered, where’d she go? If true love lasts forever, was this love not for me? I heard an answer on the wind - Son, your true love is she. A true love will always linger in the shadows of your heart Even when the one you love has chosen to depart. True love is the love you gave, no matter what the cost It will return to you again, for it is never lost. Like a full moon shining on a cool summer night With placid waters glistening in its silver shadowed light Love comes like a whisper on a cool evening breeze A gentle touch, a soft caress, a rustle in the trees. There is no bitterness in the past, if your love was true The sweetness in the memory is true love’s gift to you A rising sun or new full moon is not a memory And so will love come once again, if you let it be. Twas a full moon shining on a cool summer night And hound dogs were howling at its silver shadowed light I heard but a whisper on the cool evening breeze, Twas the voice of love’s song...answering my pleas.

A Crystalline Moment

Cloudy was the morning on which I had awoke, not a bird was heard chirping, nor a single word heard spoke. My eyes were then opened to what no one often sees, as if a veil had been lifted, with a cool summer breeze. Nothing was moving not a single leaf in the trees, or a single blade of grass, as far the eye can see. The dogs so often barking, in this moment could not be heard. Crystalline was the moment that brought me these few words. Within this crystalline moment, my world was standing still this peaceful quiet moment, for me was such a thrill. As that moment faded I felt an inner peace come from within, a moment then gone, when the chaotic world once again began to spin. The dogs began barking and birds were heard chirping in the trees, leaves again began to rustle, upon another cool summer breeze. Children were then heard yelling, as they played out in their yards with that all to familiar sound, of so many passing cars. Is this what the world is like, for those who cannot hear? Do the subtle sounds they think they hear, tend to strike them with a fear? I will have to ask my brother who was born partially deaf, then let him know in a way, he may have been born partially blessed

The Meaning Of Life

Through life...I've learned the meaning of love. Through love...I've felt the feeling of heartbreak. Through heartbreak...I've felt the feeling of pain. Through pain...I've learned the meaning of acceptance. Through acceptance...I've learned the meaning of forgiveness. Through forgiveness...I've learned the meaning of faith. Through faith...I've learned the meaning of life. We are all important in life... We all have a purpose in life... Now all we have to do is... Make every purpose count... ~Life~ Is a learning experience ~Life~ Is a state of existence that belongs to the soul ~Life~ Is the true meaning of meaning ~Life~ Is the state of something significant,and of great importance ~Life~ Is what is intended to be or is ~Life~ Has a beginning,a purpose, and an end...

A Gentle Kiss

A gentle kiss, that I really must send To another true, and very dear friend Pucker up babe, it's coming your way And riding a storm, so it should be there today I licked my lips before I blew, so I know it's going to stick But with all the lightning, it might have a little kick So when it hits your lips, it might give off a little spark Now what started off as a gentle kiss, might be leaving you in the dark <3

The Toilet

                                     At times my words feel like turds
                                      In a forever flushing toilet of life
                                      Some days after releasing them
                                      My mind still  doesn't  feel  right
                                      Butt  wiped onto  paper they go
                                      Then typed into this toilet of life
                                      As  they spin  around  the  bowl
                                  I notice something doesn't smell right
                                           It must be time to clean
                                             This forever flushing
                                                  Toilet of life 
                                                   Allowing me
                                                     Words of
                                                     Freshness 
                                                 And new turds 
                                              To flow with delight

Just A Kiss

Once again the sun fades into the distant sky I gaze up at the stars to imagine the twinkle in your eye Though a sunset for me, is a sunrise for you It's at this time each day my heart is feeling blue Together are hearts are one, yet half a world apart I know that shooting star is filled with love from within your heart With a full moon slowly rising overhead into the nights sky May it be a sunrise of beauty for you, as it kisses the morning sky

Will You Be There

A day without thoughts another sleep without dreams. A love filled heart beating slowly that holds love above all things. My mind searches for repentance as love floats above all the earth. I wait for it to begin to rain down giving all life some meaning and worth. Distraught, sad and somber still pretending to hold a smile. Unable to happily hold it as it fades after a short while. The world that I envisioned was to be better then what we now have. To grow stronger,more forgiving and together without spite, greed and murder that leaves us sad. As lifes final days draw near us all when Gods will shall finely be done. Hoping to see you all in heaven where we might all meet as one.

Shadows-Collab

Our shadows were so restless As we passed from room to room They pretended to be living But each within their tomb Shrinking a little bit each day As the sun shown bright above With them a piece of our love slipped away Out on our quest for love The days of our younger shadows Dancing in each days light Love,and laughter floating on the breeze Until day turned into night Slowly burdened by lifes troubles Our shadows could dance no more Only to become darkend spots Fading away on the floor Now death's time,and space have taken you Leaving me only memories of your face The shadow that was once part of you Is now gone without a trace

A Soul With Dreams

I would like to show you something That your eyes can not see It will give you a sense of feeling Allowing your thoughts to run free I want you to look within yourself Only as a simple earthly being Look into your heart for passion Where destiny fulfills your dreams We are here to gain enlightenment That we may pass onto others Not to fill this world with hate Nor to judge one another Through this forever endless search Of needless earthly things We can choose faith,hope and love To surpass all earthly dreams It matters not the type of pillow You may lay your head upon A gift of love was given to all That shall forever carry on Never worship those who enlighten you Only the true creator of all things For with his gift of a soul within us He communicates through our dreams

Wisdom Warriors

The blood of my Grandfather, has inspired me to write. A tragic tale of Native Americans, who have been denied their rights. To live upon this land, they used to call their home. To be herded together like cattle, no longer allowed freedom to roam. Blood of many great warriors, has been shed upon these lands. Pridefully giving their lives to the greediness, of the new white man. Though not all people, felt the need for this shameful greed. What was being done to these people, did not go unseen. The Native Peoples heritage, didn't fit the plans. Of our fore fathers dreams, of this new American land. I have learned many great things, through the wisdom of these wise men. In honor and respect, I share these few words, in a smoke filled prayer, that I now shall send.
