Where The White Rose Blooms

The single white rose captured the old gardener's attention,
He lovingly cared for it, like it was his own grand-daughter,
The roses were just like family and friends in his eyes,
He gave them bright sunshine, and plenty of fresh water.

He had always planted roses in reds, yellows, and pinks,
Yet, it was the one white rose that he favored most,
The old gardener admired it's innocence and elegance,
A quality that the other roses just could not boast.

This precious rose was pure white, like new fallen snow,
Which only a cold, late November day could bring,
It's delicate petals were soft to the finger's touch,
Similar to that of a feather, in an angel's wing.

The old gardener was perplexed and astonished,
Only this rose bloomed through spring, summer, and fall,
Each of the other roses had withered months ago,
The frost and cold weather did not affect it at all.

With a smile, the old gardener took one last look,
Unknowingly, death would soon come without warning,
After he had settled down for a nap in his chair,
He drew his last breath, later on that morning.

His funeral was held on the very next day,
Loving words were spoken, as he was laid to rest,
His grand-daughter approached, with tears in her eyes,
As she placed the single white rose upon his chest.

The cemetery was a quiet and peaceful place,
Where family and friends gathered to remember,
A gentle snow began to fall upon the casket lid,
Brightening the gloom on this final day of November.

The old gardener's soul departed from this earth,
Lead away by a choir of angels, on delicate wings,
Then on through the pearly gates of heaven's garden,
Where the white rose still blooms, in eternal springs.

Fallen Star

I tracked along a silver trail
carved out from Earthly dust
by rays persistent in the dark 
and midnight wanderlust.

It led me to a bubbling fount
of sulfurous mud and tar; 
whereupon I chanced a glimpse
and found a fallen star. 

An ancient from celestial realms
ensnared terrestrially
dimly glowing in the murk
I heard it sing to me:

Sojourner of the moonlit way
I sense thy beating heart
I’ve travelled from infinity
now hearken ere you part.

You roam upon this infant orb, 
you draw from it thy life, 
but I sense greed and evil scorn
and no land void of strife.

I beg you tell me how it came
that creatures such as thee
have found such hatred in thy souls
to punish endlessly. 

It’s not so bad, I said out loud
we know of love as well…
as to the fate of mother Earth
I simply can’t foretell.

The ground beneath my weary feet
gave way to empty space
then all around me in the void
I saw the human race.

Starving children, ill and gaunt
were kicked by wing-tipped shoes.
Females ranging every clime
in silence nursed abuse.

In darkness men were plotting war
in light their banners raised
it mattered not which way I looked
some evil met my gaze.  

Make it stop, I beg you please!
Why poison thou my mind?
What can I do to stop all this,
is no good left to find?

Sojourner of the moonlit way
I sense thy beating heart
I’ve travelled from infinity
now hearken ere you part.

You roam upon this infant orb, 
you draw from it thy life, 
and though you’re one of many men
love in thy chest is rife.

You must return to whence you came
you must confer abroad
the goodness that within thee burns
seek first to serve the flawed.

Think on the vast expanse of space
so empty, dark and cold…
and how despite the hopeless cause
star-light you still behold.

So too might thou, if you’ll but try
endure this awful plight
for in the vast expanse of hate
love is thy shining light.

Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

Irish Nectar of the Sun Goddess

Irish Nectar of the Sun Goddess

This mystical aura of golden radiant sunbeams so sublime
With a warm mead laying lovely below its enchanted neck,
Is breathless releasing gasps of white-hot-fire breaths now, 
All spiritual within one and a thousand sighs, it whistles too.

Brightly your radiance shines through the deep blue oceans
Where rainbows are misted with shades inside a desire born,
With curtains falling—revealing a beauty spot held precious,
Whilst in your heart glows warmly a true love priceless pure.

A royal crown bestoweth upon thine mantel of soft ‘n purest silk,
Now spangled as dewdrops glisten brightest on mirrored slippers,
As a divine swan upon one wave began dancing on joyous ripples,
An old Irish jig played on in this moment dancing you and I, as two.

The Merry Old Leprechaun looked on with his wee-soft eye twinkle  
As the Sun Goddess giveth her divine breath to this sacred harvest; 
Now to beareth the sweetest of fruit with warmest rays of gentleness,
So all can shareth this grandest garden moment of holy eternal glory.

We all shall now, forever and ever, prosper in this heavenly abundance
Whilst we sheddeth a most wee-curious light into this eternal paradise,
As you and I, and the Merry Old Leprechaun shareth a passion so true,
We drinketh gladly the sweet ‘n stout Irish Nectar of the Sun Goddess!

Heaven Only Knows

Heaven only knows where I've been Only they know what's tearing me down But Heaven's watching me, watching me God on his throne with his eternal crown He only knows what can break me and He's there with His hand when I do Each crack in my bones repaired slowly Without a scar, i'm now brand-new Heaven only knows what I've seen Heaven throws trials at me like rain Knowing that I've been through heck But hoping I can do it all again God only knows when the trials end He knows when my time is through And though i can't wait until that day There's more learning I have to do Heaven only knows what will make me Learn to enjoy all of the pain So I smile at the heavens in the rainstorm Fake a smile, and dance in the rain

Death I’m told to be frightened of you,
you should be one of my greatest fears.
Yet you'll come no matter what I do
fueling bouts of anguish and tears.

Your arrival’s portrayed as a crime
in your sinister cowl grave and stark.
For history’s maligned you through time
as reaper of life shrouded in dark.

I see no malice within your deed
you’re as important to life as birth.
For wisdom's born of logic and need
and I’ve come to understand your worth.

We wear mortal bodies like a suit
tailored to fit ego and belief.
Yet our souls are in constant pursuit
of release, our time here is so brief.

You bring closure when life’s at its end
opening doors for souls to walk through.
And I have learned that you are my friend
eternity is achieved through you.

The Rescued Life

Smack me with your caffeine stick,
Hit me out of the park,
From the sleepy mire thick,
You kindle my life's spark.

A cuppa joe or just a cuppa,
Breakfast, lunch and even suppa,
Grind your beans into my brain,
Take away the mortal pain.

Decaf - such a dirty word,
I pity those from whom it's heard,
With a bun or coffee roll,
Bless you, cup, you've saved my soul.

Mocha java dirty mud,
I'd rather have you as my blood,
Now that I can actually think,
Do your due, brew me some ink.

Brashly dark, not creamy soft,
Raise my flattened mind aloft,
I take you hot, no need for ice,
Show me shores of paradise.

Take Me With You

The peaceful gushing of those waves closing in
Was once enough to aid my sleep.
But since you left, it reminds me so
And the sound now makes me weep.

More than oceans apart, but forever joined
By those summer nights by the sea.
On the island of Emeralds I lay in your arms
You kissed and whispered to me:

‘All of my life, I want it with you,
you make everything so much lighter.
I’ve not much to give except for my love
and a promise to make your world brighter.’

Can you still keep that promise now that you’ve gone?
It sure doesn’t seem that way.
I care not about what I’m feeling inside
But how the world lost a good soul that day.

You gave so much more than was asked of you
And not once did you wince from your pain.
The worst day of my life started my strife
You were there and you weren’t; you were lain.

And now all I have are memories
How I wish that they were enough.
They’re stark reminders of your absence
And without you life will be tough.

To live or not to live;
That is now my every question.
And if I’m lost will you seek me out
And take me with you to heaven?

Blushing ruby gem petals touch

I see the shadows soft inside starlight 
beauty illuminates one queen true
deep within the bones it dwells ashes 
a drunken spirit's kiss lives hot fire

Burns ultra violet turns blue heaven's 
colours of amazing grace's promise
white dove you fly deeply inside pure
rose you bleed into heartbeats crimson love

Crowning of the temple angelic gift
dawn awakening within jewels 
blinding beautiful I am held 
captivated by a vision of you

I Am Sure Because Jesus Said So

Someone asked me this question:
How sure are you that you'll go to heaven?
I said I believe in the Word of the Son,
Eternal life to all who believe in Him are given.

Jesus said it - that I will never perish,
That I have been bought with a Price,
The words of Christ is what I cherish,
I know He saved me by His Sacrifice.

Set free from sin and from judgment,
Brought out of darkness into His light.
From death to life -what Jesus meant,
No one can snatch me from His Hand..

I am of a chosen people, a royal priesthood.
Ambassador of the Gospel, a saint of God.
His Spirit works in me to do all good-
I'm sealed and paid for by His precious Blood.

Cynthia Buhain-Baello~~ ~~~03.03.16

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life." (John 5:24)

" I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand." (John 10:28)

"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a Price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9)

"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God."
(2 Corinthians 5:20)

God called Nathan Home

On January 5th 1992,
  God whispered in Nathan’s ear.
Oh, it seems like yesterday,
  But it’s been seventeen years.

God came into the hospital,
  And clutched him to Thy chest.
To accompany his little soul,
  Onto his heavenly quest.

Before he parted earth,
  And left for the above.
He felt his father’s warmth,
  And heard his mother’s love.

And after all this sadness,
  A place in heaven is our reward.
For Nathan is safe and sound,
  Up with the Lord of Lords.

Though he left you as an infant,
  Up in heaven he has grown.
For today’s the anniversary,
  That God called Nathan home.

This is for Gary and Elizabeth Reese,
I have written you a poem from my 
Heart to yours, may God bless you 
and Happy New Year...Raul

In Heaven with the Lord

Three years have almost passed,
  Since God called you both home.
He summoned you untimely,
  Up to Thy golden throne.

Kayla Brianne and Elijah Kyle,
  Were both their names to be.
But God had other plans,
  And brought them to Thy glory.

Though time is filled with sorrow,
  There are things to be thankful for.
For Kayla Brianne and Elijah Kyle.
  Are up in heaven with the Lord.

Dedicated to Cody and Brandlynn Young,
two fellow soupers who lost two children.

Happy Husband Hears No Alarm

Waking with a smile, eyes bouncing green, dear husband
makes me hold back my scream, desire to pull over sheets.
Later, I find you sitting like Buddha, gazing at the land,
shifting as each birds lifts and soars and tweet tweets.

I watch you in silence, pick up slippers, my piles of papers
find my own breakfast to leave you undisturbed in dream,
you thank me so many ways, your face relaxed, finger tapers
held on belly, sometimes I wonder if you see past the gleam

Of heavenly contentment, lap of pool, sun blazing warm
the face so bruised by clenched jaw now so smooth
I never dare to battle you, drive you against walls or alarm.
Retirement is a silence of weighty falling before well oiled groove.

In the Heavens

The elements of the heavens above Where the birds go swaying and dipping down And the clouds mist their way along the sky There the dark sky shrouds the moon with a gown In awe I spread my arms just to accept The nature of the clouds and the cool air Beams of white light coming out from the moon Adds to the serenity that’s out there I hold out my hand to receive a drop A drop of dew from the heavens above Tenderly I kiss it and fill my soul Makes me want to fly with the birds I love The highest point of the sky before space Is where I end up, looking at the stars No other beauty compares to this trip I slowly fall back amongst the briars I live meagerly here on this vast Earth Then I fly again amongst the great clouds I often go see with the birds up high Joyously live my days with all that’s proud Russell Sivey

Old Mama Gass

Old Mama Gass
she lives in a zoo
she has three furry children
who fill her heart through.
There's one Auggie, one Kelly
and one Kandi Kane
who is often referred to
as her Kandi Pain.

There is always a pile
of fur on the floor
she vacuums it up
but she quickly gets more.
She once had an Ashley
but she went away
it has been five years
since that very sad day.

This past December
she was joined by Boo
her sweet little kitty
in heaven now too.
They both joined another
a black cat named Dink
who she use to find curled up
asleep in the sink.

Then there was Ratley
so cuddly and fat
she loved him quite dearly
yes, he was a rat.
She had so many others
through life as she grew
There was Patches and Daisy
and their puppies , too.

She loves them all dearly
in heaven and here
they have filled up her heart
with love and good cheer.
She knows there is nothing
like the love of a pet
you will love them forever
and never forget.

Earth and All Stars

Earth and all stars, streaming through nightly-ness,
soaring the deep-purple fathomless maze.
Keep safe and hold all who in living-ness
rest in deep shadow 'til nights yield to days.

Cool, silent moon, bridge the dark's lonely-ness
lend us the glow from your soft, silver face.
Help stay our fear, turn gloom into happy-ness.
Brighten our path as we cross the deep trace.

Gold sun and sky, warm each day's glory-ness,
brilliant and whole as we work, live and play.
Your light is day, star of most near-ness,
comfort each life on this world you survey.

Sun, moon and stars, each hold eternal-ness
marking all time as our earth soars through space.
Shine forth and burn, so soft in your glowing-ness,
share your celestial and gleaming embrace.

Dancing With The Devil

Dancing with the devil
Like I never danced before
Doing the fiery tango
On a fire flaming floor

In the crook of his arm
Our hips pressed together
Curving me round and round
Like I'm a weightless feather

Our feet move to Milonga
While forsaken souls watch
White cheek pressed to red cheek
His breath smells of age old scotch

My foot darts between his shoes
A fancy leg twist around his calf
Capturing the heat and passion
While trying not to hysterically laugh

If I can dance to perfection
Ironically I'll get to leave
Angels give me strength 
And let my soul win reprieve

For I was meant to dance
In paradise on a white cloud
Sent to hell for dancing the tango
In Heaven only waltzes are allowed

No Tears in Heaven

Mama cried nearly every day
Depression then undiagnosed
Tears shed, no apparent reason
Confined to bed, embryo posed

No words seemed to lift her spirits
Her children thought that they’d done wrong
We offered smiles, encouragement
At times we gathered ‘round in song

But mom responded to crisis
Troubled heart offered great comfort
When we were sick or dealt a blow
She stepped outside, offered support

The agony that she endured
Took her from this world in her youth
Despite the torment in her soul
She loved her children, that’s the truth

Now we picture her smiling down
Frolicking with angelic hosts
Helping as only she could do
Chemical imbalance just a ghost

* Dedicated to my beloved mother who always managed to find the strength to be 
there for her children despite her ongoing battle with depression.  She died before 
people knew depression could be linked to a chemical imbalance.

A Glimpse of Heaven

This poem is a description of a glimpse of what I saw in Heaven.  Heaven is a reality.

There’s a glorious place called heaven
A place so imperial, a haven
A sight that is indescribable
A home that is incomparable

An elegance of design
A beauty, forever shine
The crowning of architecture
The dumb foundness of structure

Is the work of the Mastercraftman
Jesus Christ, the saviour of man
He designed it and built it
As the home of just spirit

The roof so exquisitely glazed
A kind to admire and be dazed
A glittering floor of jasper stone
A work that awestruck to the bone

A mansion walls of sapphire
A moment of an eye catching fire
The stairway sparkled like clear glass
An intricate pattern of class

As I gaze in amazement before me
I was enveloped in joy, peace and glee
The fragrance in the room ravished my heart
Overwhelmed with awe, I never wanted to depart

Tears In Heaven

Lovebirds sing a duet up in the clouds
tulips pucker up to kiss the butterflies,
I am surrounded here by serene beauty
with the tears of heaven in my eyes.

Where bright rainbows never fade away
and stars twinkle in the moonbeams,
yet, what is all of this beauty worth
if there is no one to share my dreams.

Still, you shall find me there someday
and maybe want to stay for awhile,
making sure that my tears in heaven
accompany only laughter and a smile.
