Taking control

Taking control Fear The one emotion I never completely overcome  Even when sadness and Acceptance take over Fear is always Ready to take command  To love complete  A love that is from the very core  Commands the fear to be silent To find a peace  To remind my soul I am not alone  ...

Changes have happened New guidelines and rules Old ways are set aside For a time Smile behind the mask No one can see If you stick out your tongue  Or you are teeth free...

From the darkness

At first light I can finally see around me No furniture No walls Nothing as it was only hours ago Now is only silent  Feeling numb In the rumble, I see a photo with smiling faces  I see the damage  The pieces of my life I want to scream Should I rebuild  Hang on or let go As I close my eyes I feel the sun on my face I don't want to think or open my eyes For some time  ...

From a newborn Then growing up from a child Being taught from examples and life I learned to copy Listening to the voice of reason Feeling the self-worth Smiling as I see smiles Learning and understanding What is not always right Punish me for doing or Becoming like you and Not like your dreams Judge me As you would yourself For you taught me Very well    ...

To love and dream

Taking the time to know Things are not always as first thought Lips speaking without words Heat in the strength of arms Eyes burning with knowledge The joining of two That become one Twinkling stars smiling In the darkness Nothing can separate Nor come between The strength to love and   See with your heart and mind Desire without sight or sound Only to love and dream      ...

A desire so deep Knowing the hunger can only be calmed As flames burn higher The burning deepens Until the soul is smothering The only thoughts of fire And how the flames control...

Memories of a woman

Donna would tell she was in her late eighties, just not how late. She always had a smile and if she could get her hands on you, even a bigger hug. She had fallen and I went to the hospital to check on her  As I got to the door. I heard voices. Thinking the doctor was with her I waited  I heard Donna's voice begin to tell one of her many stories. Her words took me in as I closed my eyes...

No tears falling

The tears I not let fall As I look at your pictures The smiles Our laughter Your song of love Never leaving my mind Touching tenderly My heart cries for you Souls forever one No The tears I not let fall...

The airport

The day at the airport Many were waiting for loved ones A look at the clock told the time was near Sounds of the plane had finally come  People moving  Cries and laughter were everywhere A man moved into view My heart told me It was him We stopped  As customs say  Our eyes didn't meet I heard the drop of a bag  Saw him go down on one knee As he extended his hand Palm up I...

To fill the hours in the day I do as expected Alone in a crowd I prefer it that way Not really alone As some think I see you in my mind Feel you in my soul Your whisper at times I hear Whenever I miss you the most Every beat of my heart Every breath I take Your whispers give me strength The courage to continue on They are really a treat I realize  To have the time we did ...
