Once Upon A Time

This is a poem about the future I'd love to have with the boy of my dreams.
None of this has actually happened yet (besides us falling in love with eachother) but it's how I would like it to happen.

Once upon a time, I became the luckiest girl in the world. I fell in love with a gorgeous boy with blue eyes, and he actually loved me back. He was like my prince, he treated me like his princess and would do anything for me. Today, we're united as King and Queen. It's been years, but walking down the aisle I'm still staring at the cutest, most perfect guy I've ever seen. When our lips finally meet after parting to say "I do", it tastes like Heaven.

Once upon a time, I married a gorgeous boy with blue eyes. And today, I saw those perfect blue eyes light up when he first held our little girl in his arms. She's got her Daddy's blue eyes and just a little bit of her Momma's brown hair. She's going to be spoiled and loved more than possible. She'll know we support her no matter what, and she can tell us everything. It will be perfect.

Once upon a time, one set of blue eyes became two, and we were made into a family. Now, that second pair of blue eyes is walking out the door to college, with a suitcase in one hand and a boy's hand in the other. He better love her and treat her just as well as her Daddy does.

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a gorgeous boy with blue eyes. His hair has dulled and grayed but his eyes are the same, and they've seen a lifetime's worth of happiness and love. My baby had babies with the boy she walked out the door with, and I can tell she loves them as much as we loved her. Now it's her time to live.

Been a long long time

Been a long long time

Deja Vu
I remember when you were with me,
and our love was still brand new

Been a long, long time...
Makes me want to cry...

It was great back then,
We were both so young, we thought
our love would never ever end,

Been a long, long time...
Guess our song ran out of rhyme.

Deja vu
I remember, when you told me,
that you wanted someone new,

Been a long, long time...
Can't get you off my mind.

I want you to know,
You were the one for me
I never wanted you to go

Been a long, long time...
Can't get you off my mind

I keep going to the places we used to go
You're always with me in my mind
I wish I could move on, but,
the memories just won't fade
I still love you so much, I can't
believe you never  stayed!

Deja vu
I remember the times we came here,
and our love was still brand new,
Been a long, long time
Can't get you off my mind

Been a long, long time...
Can't get you off my mind

repeat fade to zero

You and I


I find you at the gateway to life
the center of my world
patiently waiting for me to ripen

You make all the storms seem safer
your maturity grounds me
to that place where my age is nothing

The one piece of fruit you crave
you are my sunshine and my rain
you are the clouds full of mystery

You are all past, my history
and here in these days
I find life from you at my own gateway
forever gratefully

God Is Good All the Time

God Is Good! All the Time! God is good! All of the time! I'm so thankful, he's a friend of mine! His goodness reaches beyond the stars! He's always here! Never too far! His goodness reaches, beyond our understanding! And gives life freely! And it's everlasting! His goodness brings comfort, Peace, and hope! And helps me down, life's "slippery slopes!" Please, dear God, May your goodness flow! And bring much needed strength to my soul! Your goodness always strengthens my spirit! Help me to be willing, to freely share it! By Jim Pemberton

Standing out in a field alone, a little white flower named Daisy longed for someone to share her world.
One day a blue flower named Bachelor Button entered her world they became friends.
 She knew by his name that he was not the propagating kind, but that didn’t stop their relationship she called him BB short for best bud.
The seasons of Spring & Summer they enjoyed the sun, laughed in the rain and held on fast in the Fall.
Winter came it was long and hard they were both covered in a blanket of snow, not knowing whether they would ever see each other again or even survive .The snow fell     then came the ice, this went on for months.

The Sun shone brightly the first day of spring. A few days later warmth of the sun melted the snow, Daisy popped up .
 I’ve been waiting days for you to come out, said BB, they both chanted hooray!
The snow was completely gone in a few days, the birds started building their nests , bugs were crawling around ,butterflies began to visit the two flowers. I wish there were more of us Daisy said, to BB.

They laughed as the sun and wind blew through their leaves.  Then it started the sun and rain took turns until one morning the air & field was filled with the smell of flowers.
Daisy and BB looked at each other and asked what kind of flowers are these ? they’re not white like daisies they’re not blue like bachelor buttons. They did not know the birds and bugs carried the seeds from the two of them and the caterpillars buried them under the soil.
The seeds from the new flowers were then carried by the winds many miles away, they landed in fertilized gardens and flourished, although they faced danger everyday. 
as they were called WEEDS ..
 The Gardener pulls weeds out of the garden so they don’t choke the flowers, which cost a lot of money and require lots of maintenance.

However there was a Gardener who saw her friends spending hours weeding their garden , that they didn’t have enough time to admire and enjoy the labors of their love
So she set out to give a home to all the weeds ,she provided a place where they could fit in and multiply, they required no maintenance, rain provides their water .

The best part of all is their beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 Ask my granddaughter-- What are those flowers in the garden ?
  She will answer "WILDFLOWERS " their parents were Daisy and BB

Pluck a petal
Pluck a bloom
Bloom denotes love
Bloom will choose

Choose your mate
Choose a marriage
Mate for love
Mate for life

Life builds relations
Life mates two
Relations are quickened
Relations are besotted

Besotted with another
Besotted through time
Another love knotted
Another for all time

Timed to the end
Time to outlast
End it coupled
End in death

Death offers hope
Death comes reunified
Reunified in heaven
Reunified in name

Name your time
Name that game  
Time will tell
Time forsaken  

Forsaken if unmatched
Forsaken to divorce
Unmatched in heartbreak 
Unmatched in life

Life made perfect
Life for lovers
Perfect for them
Perfect for children

Children are born
Children need love
Born from parents
Born from love  

Love is priceless
Love is earned
Priceless but attainable
Priceless but gifted

Gifted in shares
Gifted to winners
Soar in takes
Shares for unity

My Time of Worship Divine

Meeting at your church, we sat side by side. Our fingers, interlaced, were dancing! Sometimes you’d pause to trace my palm in silent adoration. I worshiped you in turn, for you touched my soul with new joy while the preacher preached of love. For Regina Riddle's "A Special Memory" Poetry Contest

Love Against Time

Why do I let my love for you control the way that I feel?
Something sentimental, that only time can heal.
Leading me one way and pulling me to the next.
I'm losing my patience.
Is this some type of test?

Our relationship, friendship,
whatever you want to call it.
Is spitting back at me, like a child's vomit.

Is it games that we're playing?
Because I have the cheat codes.
No more wondering or what if's,
I just have to know.

Cause we can no longer sit back 
and let time pass us by.
It's either we take chances now,
or give it all to life.

The First Time Ever

The cool refreshing breeze on a summer's eve After a bright, sunshiny day It's like the refreshing scent of a beautiful woman While she cuddles up close to you and sighs, “I love you” Two of the truly ultimate joys this life has to offer We lose all sense of time and place We live in that moment of sheer ecstasy When the world and it's petty problems cease to exist A divine moment in time that is etched in our memory Like no other, this moment is a once in a lifetime encounter Our first ever expression of love while we're young As we age and reach the different stages of life There will be many moments of divine pleasure But none so memorable as that very first time All of a sudden life has dramatically more meaning The childish games we played no longer fill our thoughts They're replaced by visions of love There is nothing else in life that equals that first ever time We realize what this big beautiful world is all about It's LOVE, sweet sweet LOVE © Jack Ellison 2014

My First Love Experience

It was in the early days of our lives
We met
She was so beautiful 
My eyes could not stop admiring
My heart kept racing 
Every time it sensed
her good-looking approaching
But we were too young 
To give full meaning 
To the love language

Years passed
Time kept flying
We lost contact 
But the memory of our past
We lugged with us

Someway, somehow,
Fate found us
And brought us together

We have now grown 
So big and sweet
We both glitter
At each other’s presence
We were ready to do a recap 
of where we left off

We laughed and joked about our past
We talked about our hey days at the National Theatre
We remembered the beautiful past that reflects our true self
We both haven’t changed after all

At that moment my heart spoke 
The love language again
I knew I was in love with her
It wasn’t today
It started from when we were kids

Man must gather confidence
And speak out his feelings

Thoughts of what she would say;

Don’t laugh at me,
We all do it sometimes

We were sweet friends
But now, I want to take 
The friendship a step further

My heart in full swing 
Of abnormal beating,
It beat faster
It spoke two different languages
Say it; and keep it
Don’t know which of these to believe 
I was shy
I was afraid
I was confused
I was happy
I was sad
I felt insane

There she was,
Standing in front me
In their house 
Beaming with smiles

Nii, she said tenderly,
‘I thought you said you had something to tell me,
Come on, I can’t wait any longer
My ears are itching’

My heart just jumped out
And now I want to escape from her presence
I wish I could vanish into thin air

Stop laughing at me
I’m not mouth lazy

I was just afraid of the outcome 
What if she said NO?
What if I lose her as a friend?
What if she vanishes into thin air?

And the what if’s continued …

Once in a man’s life time
He must draw together courage
To speak out his feelings

After all, I would not have violated any law
For telling a sweet scented woman 
Gorgeous, attractive and stunning 
About what I feel for her
So my nerves were clamed

This was how I started…

Esther, I mean, Naa Adjeley

The confusion has started

Errrmmm, you see,

Still didn’t know what to say

Hmmm, hope you are doing great?

Still confused…

‘I guess your brother, Thomas,
Is doing fine?’

She stared at me intently 
The smiles on her face kept 
My hopes alive 
And my heart awake 
I knew she was expecting 
Something more than making those comical remarks

It’s was now time to speak

Naa Adjeley, I travelled from Cape Coast 
To Accra to come see you
To tell you I miss you
and errmmm…

Please let it out
The small voice inside me whispered

I left campus to Accra just to let you know that

She laughed aloud and said
‘’are you serious!’’

‘Oh! Yes I am’
I said confidently,

Her face suddenly darkened
The smiles misplaced 
I wanted to fade away from her presence
After all I’ve let my feelings out
That was what mattered to me
But I did not have that special magic

How long have you felt this way towards me?
The next question to answer
‘When we were kids,
But it was revamped quite recently’
I replied

I could see the confusion on her face
She needed some more time 
To think things through
I was excited let it out
But she was confused

Days passed,
I went back to school,
We enjoyed chit chatting on the phone
But the answer to my request was still hanging

She mentioned in one of our conversations
She might be travelling
But didn’t say when
She was a nursing student
I was a tourism student
The beauty of having a friend 
You know and love
kept my mind awake in school

School was on recess
I arrived in Accra
Left my things unpacked
Borrowed money from my old girl
Picked a cab to Banana Inn
To see the woman 
That has taken my heart hostage

I kept bagging at their gate
Agoo! agoo! agooo! 

Waiting in anticipation to see
Her fine looking face
And present her with my first gift
Her brother, Thomas opened up

‘Hey! Where have you been?
It’s been a while’
Was the first question 
He asked

The only interest I had was to see her face
I wanted to see the woman 
That makes my heart beat
She was all I cared about

Where is Naa Adjeley?
I enquired from Thomas

I saw the shock on his face
My breathe was not catching up 
with me properly
I knew something was wrong

‘Where is she’,
I asked again
‘Didn’t she tell you
She was travelling?’
My face dropped dead at once
I felt a sharp heart ache
I almost fainted

She left for the U.K
Without even saying bye bye
Was that why, she didn’t give any reply
to my proposal?
Why did she keep my heart awake?

I left her house, depressed
Her gift was a bonus for the cab driver
My face drenched in pool of tears

I know it hurts
But I felt more relieved


My feelings had been made lucid to her
I now walk with my chest out
Ready to move on
Ready to open myself up to happiness

I still remember
Her looks
Her smiles
Her beauty
Her mannerism

My first love story
The one I have kept furtive
Over the years

Naa Adjeley
My old time love.

Bail Me Out Please One More Time

Well I was just trying to reach the other side
Couldn't swim 
So I tried to fly
But I lost my wings
And if you don't mind
Could you bail me out please
One more time?
Ten years old at the swimming hole
That ol rope swing took a part of my soul
Grabbed that rope but I couldn't let go
I fell off and broke my toe
They laughed at me when I was ten years old
Well I was just trying to reach the other side
Couldn't swim 
So I tried to fly
But I lost my wings
And if you don't mind
Could you bail me out this
One more time?
17 in my daddy's truck
A settin there working my courage up
She was bout to say yes when the sheriff pulled up 
It happened to me man of all the luck
Well I was just trying to reach the other side
Couldn't swim 
So I tried to fly
But I lost my wings
And if you don't mind
Could you bail me out maybe
One more time?
At 24 I was outta my mind
All strung out
And running blind
No place to go and in a four way bind 
I'd gone too far and crossed the line
Well I was just trying to reach the other side
Couldn't swim 
So I tried to fly
But I lost my wings
And if you don't mind
Could you bail me out just 
One more time?
When He called to me
I just couldn't let go
I thought I'd gone too far
And lost my soul
But He held on tight
Love made me whole
He bailed me out even when I couldn't let go
Well I was just trying to reach the other side
Couldn't swim 
So I tried to fly
But I lost my wings
And if you don't mind
Could you bail me out Lord
One more time?

The Ghost I Knew

Can I catch you
Can you stay?
Forests at wood
There we play
A gentle hand 
That fixed the dress
Brushing tears back
Saving stress
I can not bare
The oaken wave
Only memories
Can I save
I miss your hair
And what it covered
More than a mind
God knows I loved her
The ghost I knew
She rests away
I can not catch you
You can not stay.

This was a simple stress reliever

Kiara Lebel

Why do you need to go
Why do you need to leave and let me go 
Let us go
Tear us apart
All the fights and all the marks wasn't worth it?
You don't love me then you don't love us and you don't love yourself
I’m not crazy I’m just in love
I’m deeper than the average person and I realize what I can do
I might kill for you or even worse, myself
This is a problem for my health
You promised forever with no hesitation and left even quicker
Who am I to you? Nothing anymore
Because these girls are what you need
You crave attention that is not good enough for me, you crave it so much and don’t even realize how bad you really have it
But what gets me is that you're not lost without me
2 years and you're not lost without me
I should've known from the beginning when you left

I should've known......... I should've known.......

And I did know, I was just so blind
And now I’m dead inside and you don't care
So what do you have now, grace and glory?
Or embodiment and misery

I’m dead now......... I should've known.........

A time to remember

A time to remember 

The innocence 
The smile
The way you laughed
The stare of your eyes
All these are the reason why
I love you more today
My knees are weak 
When the words are spoken
When the words from your lips
Invade my heart
With a simple 
I love you
Lost in the memories we share
Replaying them all
Like a favorite movie you know all the words
Like a song stuck on repeat 
Lost in the groove of the beat
The beat of our hearts 
Playing for us 
A love song
Our song

Our Time

Our Time The first time that our eyes would meet, just babes, first day of school. A twinkle shared was spark enough, to make one soul of two. Such pure and intimate being, this new soul we then created. Through years of feelings kept inside, for us it grew and waited. It wrapped your arms around me, many long and lonely nights, and came to you as dreams of me, so not to be denied. Tho miles apart with separate lives, for years to be ignored; an intity so strong itself, not bound by human form. It drew us back close once again, tho others by our sides; finally voicing feelings hidden; sad we never had our time. Only once near forty years, I've looked upon your face. We shall have our time, my love, tho not this plane or place. When our bodies lay to rest, this realm we will depart. Our souls combined will then be free to frolick neath the stars. We'll breeze ore sandy beaches, where ner our feet did trod. Draw footprints there with fingers made of winds; the breath of God. We'll flutter over soft green fields, where never we did lay; imprinting golden silloetts, with hands of pure sun rays. Then wisp up to the heavens, where forever we well be; one loving soul, made from two; a spark from you and me. A comet for our carriage, we'll strow star dust on the moon; a dance floor made for soul mates, celestial creatures playing tunes. Our time ner will cease, my love; one soul forever more. Galaxys only seen by God; His lifetime to explore.

First Love

In the instant of a second, I just always knew.
A flickering flame I caught in the eye of you.
A feather in the wind and on my last breath,
A deeper breeze of Sunsets at night’s death,
A Star beams on the Moon and lights up the sky.
I am in a wonderland amazed at just how high.
Lo and behold, it comes to me at the end.
My first love left me His message to send.
Look up and you shall see me at night,
Look down and I am out truly of sight.
Hold on to the very end for I am near,
It’s my voice in your heart you’ll hear.
Take one breath or even two,
I am the one always with you!

Side By Side

Oh it's a beautiful night!
The moon is full
And the stars are glowing
While the trees, with Earth's cool summer breeze
Start slowly blowing...

A campfire's flames are burning so bright
While a young couple holds each other tight
Warming their hearts, as these two lovers embrace
Traveling together, through time and space
Oh how tonight, with their love, they won't hide
Two lovers forever, Side By Side

Under the stars, both of them lay
They've been together, happy, all night and all day
Holding each other, a sweet caress
While green grass stains her pretty white dress
But no words, to each other, do they say
Happy just sitting Side By Side, knowing no other way

Gazing up at the stars
Breathing in the night
Them together with nature
A beautiful sight

All the years they've both struggled
And how they cried 
Has led them here tonight
It matters not now
As they'll lie here forever, Side By Side

Which Way

June 21, 2013

We've been floating through the years
Just you and me my dear
Without a worry on our minds
Or a watch to keep the time

Which way will you go
Which way will you go
If you take the road less traveled
You're much less likely to unravel

Where have you gone
I can't seem to find you anywhere but here
Right by my side where you belong
Holding hands and singing songs

Of a time long gone
When the long forgotten speak
Their minds
And we let ours go in time

Which way will you go
Which way will you go
If you take the road less traveled
You're much less likely to unravel

How will you answer
My love
Will you trust in your beloved
Or look to the stars above

As the days roll by
I wonder why
Which will
Which will you try

You never saw her dreams,
The way she wished it was cut clean
The nights she longed for truth,
And any sort of proof.

So she sits and has this debate,
Whether in the end she'll love or hate?
And as she thought and thought,
Her heart by pain was wrought.

Until arrived that faithful day,
Where she gained the courage to finally say,
"I missed your silly crazy plays
Even early as the months of may."

She thought perhaps she'd long again,
Instead the healing of a heart began.
Those words had set her free,
Left her willing to believe.

That even without that gentle kiss,
Or the sweetest touch she dearly missed.
Her life would once again be bliss.

Last chance for love

Last chance for love

I know, 
you want to take it real slow
and think about the future

life passes by so fast
so, grab a hold while it lasts

don't miss the very last train

Don't keep on asking

if what we have is real
don't cause me any more pain
my love will always remain
If you try you can feel

Don't be out of touch
Please, don't, don't, think so much


Can't you see,
this is our 
last chance for love
Can't wait anymore 
it's our 
last chance for love
Can't you see,
this is our 
last chance for love
take a hold, don't let me go
say you won't go...
say you won't go

I'm still here waiting, 
so, what do you say?
Have you made a decision?
Do you want to be with me 
or, do you want to be free?

and stay with your, 
friends at the party?

there's no more time remaining
it's time to climb aboard
no time for hesitating

I am your only man
why can't you understand
Why can't you see...

Chorus repeat

First Love Visits

I dreamed of you again
The first love of my youth
I wonder what takes me there
Exploring you again
Wondering how decades later
You still come to me 
In my dreams.
I know we will never be together
Our lives so different now
But when I dream we are 
And our love so strong.
I was just wet behind the ears 
When I fell so hard
You just made me feel 
Everything around me was new
The last time I saw you a gift you gave
Still friends we are some 35 plus years later
But you told me you loved me once more
And there was the closure I had needed 
So many years before. 
Then why does it happen again
What does it mean this time when
I dreamed of you again

my darling

grab your desires
   put on your dreams 

let's build a wall 
together, you and I, 
alongside the border
between the time zones
some will call it pure insanity

to find nothing but each other 
in tunnels we'll later dig
under that same wall
as we escape time
for a new reality.

Rondel : You came too late this time our tryst to keep

You came too late this time our tryst to keep
Lost in your reveries in other lives
So long, Mon Amour, just one thought survives

I must be away to lie in irked sleep
Linger not here where sours honey in hives
You came too late this time our tryst to keep
Lost in your reveries in other lives

Will your dreams bind with mine in sleep to reap
The hour when tolls true meaning of drives
Free as spirits cut loose by demon knives 
You came too late this time our tryst to keep
Lost in your reveries in other lives
So long, Mon Amour, just one thought survives

you had touched my life 
you showed me the way 
when my life was in the gray 
you taken away the pains of yesterdays,

You stay upon my mind 
most of the time 
friends come and go 
and soon they grow old ,

But you stand so bold 
your love never goes cold 
you are the love of my life 
but this was no surprise
all can see you are with me 
your love shines so bright
deep into my eyes ,

You gave me a meaning 
you gave me hope 
you taken away the darkness
you did everything 
No other could had ever done 
you are my one and only ,

Your love is so true
you could never make me blue
Your love is ancient 
A tale as old as time 
I read your words day and night,

You are the way 
you are the light
that shines on high 
deep into the night 
you are the fire 
that keeps my spirit on high ,

I am so glad 
and so very blessed 
you are in my life 
You are the tale as old as time 
you are the love of my life .

One's First Love 2K11

No Fairies, no Genies, nor wishing-well.  
Sorcerer's duplicate not first love's spell.  

No Time-Machine to moments of one's yen;  
Ah, bathe in love for one's first time again!  

With memories one sips Fountain-of-Youth;  
Transporting back one where love first proved truth.

That Glance... 
As Bright as a purely shined on diamond. 
As relieving a daily nap. 
As true as the sky above our heads. .. 
Just truly unforgettable.
 This glance bursts with uniqueness. 
More valuable than a pearl... 
The smile, warm and Attention catching. 
Maybe not the Attention of a massive crowd. 
 But a Girl. 
Whose feelings cannot be described with words...
 She may only hope and dream... 
Hope to get a chance a bit of luck, 
To see this gaze and this smile by her eyes again. 
This girl, keeps this memory playing as 
Wonderfully as birds tweeting,
 As well as amazing fall of a Water fall,
 She has fallen, fallen hardly. 
Though this smile and this 
Gaze may only been seen by her once.
 She hopes that somewhere this gaze and this 
Smile views its self. .. And makes 
Someone’s day... A good day

amongst the cosmos

i wonder if it matters that my dreams have depth
Gravity becominq a thing of the past, i cling to the fantasies my soul kept
nevertheless, i'd dig into earth for my own peace
once the memories were too faint 
selflessly, i'd float into a cosmic journey
there i had seen the extra-terrestrial "he"
i dug deeper than deep to connect to his mystical being
then such an obscure footprint impressed my heart-love
a peachy sort of love
lost within its absolute time, bound to its volume
this lured me
as we go skyward, it begins to happen to us
soul, star, and sun intertwine because of this "you and I"                                                                our dreams, our fantasies... parallel to mystery                                                                                  amongst the cosmos
traces of reality, evaporated in us
suddenly, his five fingers were tangled in mine
a simple caress unknown to the lustfulness of that grey world
being closer than close never 
 a cosmic journey has to beqin
 this illusion intrigued me
i will smile an earthlink's smile

ture love excist
