I leave you a kiss
On the pillow where you lay your head
Since I cannot, it must kiss you instead
And I hope it will whisper sweetly
The words I have folded neatly
In its lavender scented weave
That I cannot say- because I must leave

I leave you a kiss
In your silverware drawer, on a spoon
Hoping it will kiss you sometime soon
With your honey and cereal for breakfast
Or a bowl of ice cream's frozen mist
When you catch a moment's reprive
But try to forget I had to leave

I leave you a kiss
On the pocket of your shirt
In case you ever get hurt
Or to ease your broken heart
In the time that we're apart
Every time you chance to grieve
When you remember I had to leave

I leave you a kiss
Just hanging in the airyou 
Walk by and it will meet you there
Just stand by my dresser and kiss it
Or if you happen to miss it
It will sweeten your dreams at night
Making them pleasant and bright
Making you almost believe
That I never had to leave

Between yesterday's coffee and today's newspaper delivery,
      we somehow lost our sweetness, now you are just a memory.
Words yelled in anger and frustrations hitting the limit
     wasn't this ocean we've swam full of joy and commitment?

You..down on your knees praying I'd forgive you once again
       me...thinking you weren't going to see her, my best friend.

I've lost you and I've lost her and somewhere lost myself
       I noticed that her favorite book she read was on the top shelf.

You think I didn't notice all the strange phone calls at night?
       you actually believed that I wouldn't give up without a fight?

Sinking slowly down under the abyss of broken promises
       a long time ago I told myself I would not allow paralysis

But underneath the grass you both have dug for my grave
       I must pull myself out, take a moment and be brave.

I have no one else who will rock me to sleep every night
       and I know deep down I will eventually be alright.

All I need right now is a decent night full of sweet dreams
       I am begging you to leave, drive away so I may be free.

For the piles of promises that were broken
And the avalanche of lies that were spoken

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

I have got to leave the lock of your arms
And escape from the spell of your charms

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

What we had was sweet while it lasted
But now it looks like our time was wasted

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

Tasha was a wooly bear of a chow
Who found a homeless kitten somehow 

He followed her home and she took over his care
Grooming and cleaning, smoothing his unruly hair

For months they made their daily appointed rounds
On the woody paths they considered their grounds

Eating and sleeping together and always by her side 
The kitten called Brother was his "Mother's" pride

One day Tasha was upset we could see
Brother was gone where could he be

Looking and searching the nearby wood
Was fruitless revealing nothing of any good

Tasha decided she would take the task on
She looked back at us and then was gone

Later she arrived with head hanging low
But that wasn't all she had something to show

A small cat she held ever so gently 
Breathing no longer his life gone evidently 

Her heart was broken she couldn't recover 
Her small son departed so for her it was all over

Soon thereafter Tasha knew that find him she might
Sadly the rainbow bridge was where they would reunite

But in evening's fading light two shadows are sometimes seen
Showing those who might glimpse this unforgettable scene 
How much love between two small creatures there had been

Looking through the bookshelves - a homemade book he chose . . . 
Trapped within the forgotten pages - he came upon a red rose . . . 

Flatten down with care - faded in colour - more so in its scent . . . 
Memories such of a time - so long ago - to himself only it lent . . . 

It came from a happy home - a home cherished - all with love . . . 
Every crevice packed with loving items - fitting all like a glove . . . 

A garden full of noises - the song birds they did forever sing . . .
And on these evenings roll scents from the flowers often ling . . .  

All crafted by a man to perfection - made to the one he loved . . . 
As no other person - nor idol - to his love - did he set above . . .   

There was nothing he would not do - to him a toll well spent . . . 
To share with his fair maiden - who was to him - heaven sent . . .

Their home a range of seductive aromas - a good woman baked . . .  
The scent of fresh green grass - cut - he meaningful then raked . . . 

A garden and a home - once filled with laughing children galore . . . 
With hollow sadness wasn't that some sixty five years or more . . .  ?

Silence - befalls this home now - bare - the creaking of the gate . . . 
No more idle down song birds - as the evening draws to its fate . . . 

The old man - restful in his chair - the book between his hands . . .
Memories forgotten - now remembered - now fully understands . . . 

His weary sunken eyes closing - they are about to open no more . . . 
Over the roof top and beyond the chestnut trees - a spirit soars . . . 

No more idle down song birds - as this evening draws to its fate . . . 
Silence - befalls this home now - bare - the creaking of the gate . . .

Gravity pulls my tears into pools.
Im sinking in sorrow -emotional fuels. 

Just turn back the time, I just want a moment. 
To say goodbye once, to cherish and own it. 

I loved my granddad - a man more than great.
Paired with my Granny as the perfect mate. 

A montage of memories that rush my soul.
My eyes fill with tears, I'm losing control. 

Just keep it together, it's what he would want. 
They all say the same, but I stand in front. 

Happiness swells, yet sadness prevails.
Like Christ on the cross, with hands full of nails. 

Life has a reason, and death isn't treason.
-It's moving on up.. A lifetime's a season. 

I look to the sky and say my goodbye.
The time won't turn back, I gave it a try. 

I close my eyes and imagine this-
Paradise in a place full of bliss. 

World peace in a piece of the world.
Without loss and bombs never hurled. 

Snow that falls that doesn't freeze.
Sun that shines that doesn't cease. 

A land where "The forever" is real.
A scene where the sick always heal.

Life with infinite love, like gusts in the wind.
Two little doves, with eternities to spend. 

God has a plan, fool-proof to the core. 
Now Granddad's with him, a reward of much more.

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

It's harder than we thought-to bid you farewell
The memories lived here, those moments to dwell
The walls resonating our laughter,absorbing our tears
A night's sleep in your arms would allay all our fears.

Packing the things from each nook- all that we might,
Can't take with us the solace coming back to you each night.
Regret the times we failed, could have loved you better
Why do you feel like a person,not just our loyal shelter.

Those old and wise trees keeping vigil with aplomb
Don't know if they will miss us when we are gone.
Carrying with us the chatter of squirrels,the songs of birds
The tiptoe of spring dawn that beckoned the deer in herds.

Our plans and destinations are ephemeral as a line in sand
And the flow just now takes us to a different piece of land.
Our first love forever and ever you will remain
While we try our luck falling in love once again.

When I read your words they hurt a lot
Some men are men some others are not

Perhaps sex appeal he doesn't lack
With his power women take him back

He's a women hater of the worst kind
He lives to play his games with womens minds

Telling you somehow you are not enough
Through his dark lies you re-live some bad stuff

Yet in the end you come to realize
This bad boy is a devil in disguise

When you reject him he falls to his knees
You see the real him he is a disease

He never deserved you just walk away
For in the end you have the final say

Inspired by Becca's poem "No longer will she agonize"

When I was sad I melted into his cool embrace
He reached down and kissed my tear streaked face.

He was there when the kids at school said I was ugly
He scooped me up and said I was lovely

He took me to the shop and we ate ice cream
He had a chocolate and I cookies in cream

He said he loved my smile best of all
And liked that for my age I was rather small

Then one day I was by his hospital bed
Holding his hand and kissing his head

Mamma had gone to Heaven so free
And that is where he wanted to be

He said that he loved me one last time
That was his way of saying goodbye.

Now when my children hug my husband dear
My father’s words I nearly hear

“I may be above you,
But I still love you,”

How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down,
Over and over, you’ll be found,
How many times will I just pray,
For all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

How many days go quickly bye,
How many birds sing when they cry,
How many cherubs fight for you,
How many angels dance the blues,

How many demons tried to take,
How many stripes for our mistakes,
How many times could I confess,
I never loved you any less
I never loved you any less.

How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down
Over and over, you’ll be found’
how many times will I just pray,
for all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

And so she was the girl from Bair.
With ocean eyes and golden hair.
Of heavy heart and light despise
Of cupid's dart and winter's cries.
There came a day when things did end.
Around the corner of the bend
There came a truck and in dispair
The loudest word was spoken there.
And so she left to who knows where.
Whilst many cried because they cared.
She roams around in circles too,
And whispering winds and skies of blue.
We raise our glass towards the sky
And smile a memory although she died.
No tears tonight, not ever one.
For there she rests inside the sun.
She is okay we know for sure.
In better days to now endure.
And so she was the girl from Bair
With clemency; a heart so fair.
And as we lay in bed and sigh,
I'd like to say to you Goodbye.

Rest In Peace Best Friend

Farewell my Angel

She fell so far then out of sight, she lost all hope embraced her night, 
she could have been all that I saw, held firm her faith and gained it all.
My hopeful heart was shattered then, alas but this the sin of men, 
To embrace true love and then deny, this tragic sin makes angles cry
So much deceived within their hearts, as God reveals, His love imparts. 
How can she think, of course she knows… truth resonates each faithful soul. 
Can any doubt this love so pure, its heaven sent oh be assured!
I pray someday she see her sin and allow this love to live again.
And even if I’ve breathed my last my love for her eternal… fast. 
Lord help her find that special one who will love her just as I have done
Oh bring her back to touch this place where angels sing her dreams are safe, 
this blessed gift gives sight in part and strength to heal her wounded heart.

Where we muster and flock as assimilator,
To imbibe the noesis as accumulator,
O’er this institute majestically,
And to nutrify our thirst magnificently,

Where we summon our metier and furnish,
Skills with the optimistic savvy and burnish,
The alpha knowledge of our profession,
And to inwrought our mind with passion ,

Where we unitely ascertain and acquisition,
The basics of our instinctive disposition,
As to acquire mere about pallor,
Worth millions of dollar,

Where we arrive and depart,
And fill empty spaces or apart,
Of our noddle so this fit as fiddle,
To solve and alleviate the medical riddle,

This comes veridical to Aero Medical Institute,
An organisation of infinite magnitude,
Of ethics, courage, bravery and fortitude,
So I pen and pays tribute and gratitude.

From deep within a silence grows
Vastly spreading, yet no one knows
No one knows of what's to come
The Feeling is sudden, then it's done.
Often with pain, fits of sorrow
The Feeling leaves nothing, not even a morrow
With much haste, take one last breath
We all succumb to The Feeling of Death.

Daylight hours too, 
Can be insidiously cruel.
I'm sunshine on a cloudy day, 
And I'm nobody's fool.
My manners will last longer, 
Than any pain he can bestow. 
The lessons from my intimates, 
Outlive the insults he can throw.
There are still rainbows 
Where my heart beats.
Look! He is walking 
up the wrong street

For I am no longer his home
And I am numb no more.

A leaf that falls on a summer day
Departs from the branch with so much glee;
It gently floats without a sound
Before it touches to the ground.

Its days are over even a dumb could tell
That time has consumed its chlorophyll;
Yet when it sprouted and grew so green
The trunk would ask her for nourishment.

A leaf that cares not for fame at all
Though on top of others when a tree stands tall;
Yet what it does is not a complex role
That a man should learn it in the school.

If any man’s life be so a likened
To that yellowed leaf that once was green;
From what it owned to others given
Then each day he lived is not in vain.

No need for sermons or parables
It is man’s conscience after all;
The act of kindness is not of chance
Each one is born with a helping hand

One can complain or choose to follow
What life can offer is neither joy nor sorrow
It’s not rejoicing and not regretting
Life’s final fall is not of dying.

It’s how one lived that counts so much
And the legacy when he departs
If like a leaf he can do as such
The joy would stay in one’s grateful heart.

The winds of change may blow so swiftly
And a man’s life may cease untimely
But a gracious soul will go just gently
Like a leaf that falls on a summer's day.

Goodbye we say in the snow
Never shall we be forever now
My head is for you a space
As my space in life is your pace
We may see tomorrow or not
All depends on how we tie the knot.

You may wear my shoes home
Then I find you place in Rome
When I cry at your departure
I waited patiently for the rapture
When we shall see behind the gate
Belonging to the same fate.

Your honour here I keep
Go where you are not cheap
Goobye, goodbye to my heart
Never from the issue of my art
Know ye the breeze still calls
In the presence of my love you lives.

We may see at the hill
But keep your mind still
Let us fight the fight
Without the fear of missing light
In my heart I keep your image
The same case we both manage.

When after writing this befitting goodbye
I shall lock up my eyes and cry
Between your shadow that passby
I never know how it hurt to say bye
Wings the virgin of your sound voice
In my heart that weeps not in peace.

We may see or we may not see again
But my spirit shall be the shadow of your rain
In your soul have I caved undying legacy
A brave rock that men tried to hide their privacy
Shall I keep my love for you, queen Monalisa
The sounding bell of the kingdom of Lisa.

The Art- attack of my heart 
Makes my art go in my 'Ha-art'
Am not without you in my life
Still I rise in my struggles and strife
Goodbye and goodbye, my song sound
A befitting song without flaws
The stincking hand of the sand
Shall not hold you in their races.

You're an ugly face
with craving skin
I can't wait long to kiss.

You're an eye lid frightened
powdered face.
A love that I can't miss.

You're the skirt filled legged,
primest girl
I could hope to see.

You're a straight taunt blouse
with ample breasts
showing all that you can be.

You're the girl next door
leaning to the fence,
swooning up against one knee.

You're a perm haired whirl
turning all the heads
with me hoping you are free.

You're the first kiss made
in a passioned wrestle
from two tongues without a sound.

You're a night of passion
to a dawn of rest
with the day swept off the ground.

You're the girl for me
till our time runs out
and our love's left to remember.

You're a memory made
in a notch for me
in an ending in September.

The town lay dark and sleeping,
people safe ,in beds were keeping.
Only I , restless , hounded.
walked down the street,
heart pounded.
What called me from my nightly slumber?
Something lonely, a despairing hunger.
Through the gate , a soldier stumbles,
in the distance , cannon rumbles.
Suddenly , in my arms he falls,
“1863? he said,” do you see the musket balls?”
His blood soaks through a letter,
he pushes in my hands.
“Give this to my Jeanette,
make sure she understands!”
With one last cold and wintry breath,
Like fog he disappears,
I’m bewildered , frightened,
for he didn’t know the year.
It’s 2013 now, and Jeanette is now long gone,
I keep the blood stained letter ,
in my mind the cannon echoes on.

At lengths afar upon thought and night
My affliction lingers upon stars of height

It slowly shatters upon the stars aglow
Slowly they dim begotten from my woe	

Night of dark, you now darken silhouette
I now shall await my anguish and regret

A pilgrim of patience in vain I reach
For ago has gone and tomorrow I beseech

Night! Night, how long shall thee stay,
Until the sun brightens anew another day?

I shall sleep, it said, for I shan’t withstand
The pain bestowed by the bare palm of hand

Shall the joy and passion of mine ebb with thee?
Or shall they descend your clouds for me? 

I shall awaken, it said, a day afar 
Holding your joy in the rays of star

I miss you my friend 
Why did your life come to a sudden end
I know it was your time to be called
But we were having a ball
Your heart I knew ached
But should of caught a break
Why did it have to come to death
Holding you on your last breath
You said you wanted to die in my arm
But a week later didn't know you were in harm
You were sitting there in the chair
Didn't know Angel of Death was there
It was so sudden with out any warning
Next thing in knew I was in mourning
Didn't even had a chance to say good bye
I wish you didn't have to die
In heaven is where you went 
My life has been save so that is where I will be sent
I miss you more than ever
You will live in my heart forever

How can I express to you what it is that I really think
Words, vague expressions of though, only touch the brink
I try my very best to get the point across
Each time feeling that I am at a loss 

Difficult as the situation may have always seemed
 I always challenged that doubt and always dreamed

 Doubt has fought back, and now hope is at it's end 
Now only despair and loneliness do I have, to lend

The time has come for great sorrow
Now there is no yesterday nor tomorrow 

Only the present, which is absent of all bliss
My own thoughts telling me what I will miss

Never did I have the chance to look into your eyes
So sad that before even knowing you, I must say goobye

Pulling up his pants I think he's already forgotten me
Smeared lipstick and a handful of twenty's

Dirty condoms laying on couch, the bed, and the floor 
He gives me a mischievous wink and out the door

Now i'm angry at what I've done 
A filthy whore with cheap discreet fun

Laying on my bed it smells like sex
My life has always been cursed like a hex

No worries i've got a way to take away the pain
Pulled the trigger on my twenty two and blew out my brain

The engine roared as from it steam poured 
Rain drops hissed as the black metal they kissed

All filed out as the suited man began to shout

One man stood alone
Nervous, but never checking his phone

A glance back he took,
Just one look

A glance at another life,
 but you only get one
And here is where his begun
He repeated as he climbed aboard 
The glance back seeming more absurd
	But still was made
	And these never fade

From the windows dark of night
Soon this town will be out of sight

His mind wonders away 
Longing for the beginning of a new day

Long ago he paid his fee
But still able to see
	To see a Sunday service
	A little boys glance with a purpose

Shaking his head 
As if to forget all that was said

As the suited man ask for his pass
The glance he can’t surpass

Memories crash his face
Like the icy rain covering this place

They are so clear
Shooting to the heart of his fear
As his body begins to steer

        They are but a few
        Such a boy in a church pew
-Years later
	The apologized for kiss
	As he prayed not to miss
	The long goodbye
	Where she began to cry

His car door he shuts 
As on word he struts

	A lifetime ago
	A girl he came to know
	From across the isle
	He saw her smile
	Stealing the first glance
	But never taking a chance
Tonight it happened once again

He saw his dreams
But it wasn’t as it seems

It wasn’t a ticket to a new place
But sunlight gleaming off her face

It wasn’t a new town
But something he long ago found
So as the rain fell all around,
Her door he started to pound

Poor Prince Hal, just wanted a pal, a friend
Someone to drink and laugh with til the end

Pawning all his hopes on white lies so far
Spending all his coins at Quickly's bar

Playing pranks on Falstaff to pass the time
Jolly as the youth, but well past his prime

Wagered then lost in the field, all bets found
Til death do they part and in friendship bound

But a  king has no need for washed up knights
Against his own will, the young prince now fights

And Hal then forsakes his friend John the Clown
As King Henry, he now takes up the crown

Now I Know
By Curtis Johnson

Some things in life are too hard to swallow, I guess
And there are others that seem impossible to digest

I just called to let you know,
I should have never let you go

If I could just hold you in my arms today,
I would never let you slip away

I know that my time for you may have passed
I also know that it’s my fault that we didn’t last

I know now that you are the one that God did send
I’m just so awfully sorry that I never knew it then

I only had one heart attack
...but it felt like two.
When the second came,
it was quite true.

The wait seemed long
...but I knew it short.
'till the tests came back
and could now cohort.

The weeks went by
...but they felt like days.
I had missed the pain,
yet I feared the blaze.

The years have passed
...but only seconds remain.
Now I fear the heart.
Here comes the pain.

It's quiet and stiff
...but also dark.
Here is my death.
Goodbye; a lark.

To mothers out there who seem to think it is our fault we are even born . . . 
I wasn’t bright when it came to figuring out for only me “Gods” plan 
When on my small body - with every punch and kick you would land

You ungrateful bitch - can’t you say thank you all you ever screamed 
I took the punches and wished somewhere else was I - all I dreamed  

The years went on - you took to taking the fireside poker to my back  
“Boy” give me some credit - stubbornness wasn’t something I lacked 

The smashing of the plates into my face - wasn’t standing you in credit
And as for a loving mother - I just couldn’t give you any worth or merit 

Screaming - you never say thank you - you ungrateful worthless bitch
While I stood my ground thinking - it’s ok this is just a little life’s hitch

I left home at sixteen - saying good bye to all that I have ever known 
It was the only way I could express as to just how much I had grown 

Her voice still screaming - you never said thank you for all I given you
I’m sorry but as a mother you repulsed me so I just couldn’t ever do

Then time came a passing - I hear the old bitch is now under the sod   
Me on my knees crying thank you Lord for now I know there is a God . . . ; )
