A Mate To My Soul

A poem written long ago that I share with you today. Originally written as a song.

Look, I know you are someone else’s Valentine For the rest of the year, can I imagine you are mine?  We both decided, we will try and fight it Scared to risk it, but just as scared to miss it We’ll be pretending we’re fine – hoping we will be in time.  Mi...

The Letter Finis

His mind goes to a sunflower field

Three times they probed the base.   They came during the darkest of the night.  Mortars falling inside, kicking up dirt and random sandbags.  The chatter of our heavy weapons returning the favor.  Pushing their first wave back.  Once then twice as we pour...

The Letter Continues

love knows no distance

Laying under the night sky, counting stars and thinking of you. Sound of Patches, in her paddock. Dreaming of your soldier boy. You feel life is good.   Driving home from work,. passing by the protesters. Screaming how evil the war is, soldiers are killer...

The Letter

Soon my love

Just the start of another day.  Your song comes on the radio. Sly & the Family Stone. "Thank You". As you wiggle in your jeans. You think of your boy, far far away. Sitting on the corner of your bed, you read his last sentence. "I'll be back in your arms,...

One Less Day As another day wakes With you to protect Till the day you fly Into my arms Forever mine As I am yours Heart Being Soul Aphrodite Goddess of love Smiles and kisses Your sweet forehead Words gifted to you Love Respect Adore Surge thru you Etche...

I wish you could see what you mean to meWhere we have gone and where we will beWe were two souls connected in the nightAn email that started a friendship so right Tears, laughter, and naughty things Fun times, joys, and stories of ping'sHush Little One an...


The waiting is the soul's biggest enemy, taking all its beauty.

The horizon always looks much brighter,that is where the rainbows belong,not here near me,where all the lights are dim.It's on the horizon that you belong too,you're a bright spot so far away,that even though I want to be with you,there are many mountains...

I wait and I wait for a message from you, Though I know that you're busy, you've got stuff to do. You might be out of sight but you're way on my mind And I try to be generous, not to think you unkind.~o~ I glance at my watch, I'm still here all alone. I k...

Long Distance Love

Oh, how I love thee...

Laying in their separate beds in different parts of the country, they each hug their pillows close imagining it the other as they send sweet messages of love. Both wanting longing to go back to yesterday when they were together sharing soft passionate kis...
