No Charge

A heart full
of love,
She freely gives,
There's no charge.
A listening ear,
while she dries,
all of your tears,
no charge.
Your cuts, and scrapes,
she patches up,
no charge.
She cooks, and cleans,
without complaint,
no charge.
She's a special lady,
like no other,
and for being,
your Mother,
there's no charge.

The Clock of Life

The hands of time,
stand still,
for no one.
Every minute,
that goes,
tick-tock,
is a life
written page.
As we idle,
throughout
the days,
There's no rewind,
nor pause,
For the clock,
of life,
must go forth,
on it's path,
as time,
plays on.

To Shake a Soldiers Hand


If by chance,
someday we meet,
upon a crowded street.
I’d like to
shake the hand,
of the soldier,
who fought the war,
on terror.
I’d like to shake
your hand,
for the bravery,
you’ve shown
time, and time again.
Who throughout
the endless nights,
prayed silently
for home.
With no regard to
their own feelings,
out of love,
they put our Country first,
to protect, and serve,
the land of freedom,
we call home.

My Sister, My Friend

When we were little,
we played together.
Then as we grew older,
there were times,
we laughed together.
Even when
we had to cross,
the saddest, and hardest,
times in our lives,
we cried together.
Sometimes,
not knowing,
the right words
to say for comfort,
so we just 
gave our love,
by simply being there.
These are the moments,
which will forever remain
in my heart.
As I remember,
my sister, my friend.

To Blind to See

Sometimes you wait,
all your life,
for that special someone.
To blind to see,
I loved you unconditionally.
My hearts not a trinket,
for you to collect,
and show.
To blind to see,
what you're doing,
to me.
You'll never change,
with your controlling ways,
I see that now,
As I walk away.
It's sad to say,
you were 
to blind to see,
I'll love you,
throughout eternity.

Forever Love

She looks at his face,
and wonders,
if it will be, the last time,
then she remembers.
He see's the pain,
within her eyes,
as she tries to hide it,
with a smile.
He to remembers,
so long ago.
Their first kiss, 
laughing and holding hands.
They always thought, they
would have
more tomorrows, 
that somehow, time 
would stop for them,
while they stayed young forever.
He tells her, it's all right to sleep,
he will always be here with her.
As he softly kisses her, one last time,
he feels her final breathe leave her,
and he knows, the door to their love,
is closed forever,  into eternity.

Sometimes

Sometimes,
It takes a storm,
And the pouring rain.
Before,
You can see blue sky.
Sometimes,
It takes heartache,
And the pain,
Of a broken heart,
Before you're able,
To find love.
Sometimes,
You'll cry,
A river of tears,
But it will cleanse your soul,
And sometimes,
You'll stumble, and fall,
Before you see,
There is light,
In the end.

Heart's Afire

This passion
is flowing,
like a river
raging.
Igniting
the flame,
and fanning
the fire,
of our desires.
As our bodies,
and souls,
come together
as one,
we'll soar,
to the heavens,
while reaching
total bliss,
as we surrender,
to sweet ecstasy.

A Heartfelt Tribute

For all the men, and women,
serving their country,
in a far, away land.
A few heart felt words
come to mind,
with new meaning.
Honor
For the job you do,
valiantly,
each and every day.
Pride
For defending our flag,
old Red, White, and Blue.
Heroes
For giving so unselfishly,
without a doubt, never once
thinking of themselves.
Soldiers
Shoulder to shoulder,
upon the sand.
you show our strength.
In numbers, united as one.
We shall stand.
Freedom
It’s a very high price,
they pay, to defend our
God given right, to live free.
Thank you
The word thank you,
seems yet so small,
and never can,
quite compare,
to all the things,
you’ve given, or for
sacrifices made.
Yet, from our hearts,
Across the miles,
and sent from home
we send our love,
and prayers,
to each and every
one of you.

Along The Gardens Edge

As I walked along,
the gardens edge,
I knelt right there
on bended knee.
As I bowed my head,
to pray,
the tears began
to fall.
I sensed his presence,
and felt his love,
for on that joyful day,
he knocked 
upon the door,
and I opened up,
my heart to him.
He gave to me, 
the peace I needed,
from within.
Jesus set me free,
right then and there,
from now, 
thru eternity.
