WORTH A TRY… a love poem of hope

When the glamour faded

So did he

One moment there

The next – absentee

Why does this happen

All of the time

Will I ever find love

As myself – divine

Creating illusions

To capture the eye

Only to lose

Walk away and cry

Life isn’t fair

My mother always said

Yet I still find myself

Alone in this bed

But, maybe tomorrow

I’ll not wear the mask

Go out in the world

Take on the task

And maybe, if I’m lucky,

I’ll finally catch the eye

Of the love of my life

Well, at least it’s worth a try

DARKNESS/LIGHT…

Darkness is a world where we cannot see the light

Within the light is hope

Within hope is life

Within life is a world where darkness is but a blink of the eye

STARS… a song

Silhouette of Woman Standing on Rock Near Body of Water during Night Time

She was walking down the sidewalk

Under big ole city lights

The dream of dreams she always had

Most every single night

And, momma tried to warn her

Of the wolves that run that town

Then… One casting couch later

And her dreams came tumbling down

—–

(Chorus)

She sent her wishes to the stars

And prayed some prayers for her success

She didn’t get too far, because

This life is such a mess

And if she’d known back then, the things,

She surely does know now

That stars and prayers and wishes

Don’t always make a happy sound

—–

That same boy comes in the diner

Almost every single day

He doesn’t order much

And he has even less to say

But soon the furtive glances

Turn into a rendezvous

She never thought her loneliness

Could become a me and you…

—–

(Repeat chorus)

She sent her wishes to the stars

And prayed some prayers for her success

Now she’s come so far, because

This life she has is blessed

And if she’d known back then, the things,

She surely does know now

That stars and prayers and wishes

In a child’s a happy sound

Yeah, stars and prayers and wishes

In a child’s a happy sound


HOPEFUL SONG… a poem

woman wearing black and multicolored shirt and cardigan standing on narrow pathway between buildings photo

Into a great big world

We face another day

~~~

Clouds may hide the sun

But we still see the way

~~~

Through eyes look for good

Letting go of what is wrong

~~~

So, celebrate this day of life

And sing a hopeful song

HORIZONS… a poem

areal photography of ocean

Don’t count me in

I’m leaving again

Your horses are dragging me down

Like clouded sun rays

You ruin my days

I don’t want to see you around

But the only way out

And away from your pout

Is for me to go back out to sea

Where the air is much fresher

Without you and your pressure

Just horizons that beckon to me

MISERY… a dark poem

person's arm under water with frizz

Light the way out of this darkness

That cradles me in its arms

Break the binding chains that hold me

Stifling me and causing harm

Help me reach just high enough

To catch an angel’s eye

And lift me from this misery

That has become my life

HORIZONS… a poem

The clouds on the horizon

They never do get near

A fleeting star shoots through the night

Out into the clear

Just beyond my reach again

Just beyond my heart

Maybe on the morrow

I can find a brand new start

If home is where the heart is

It’s where I want to be

Casting doubts and broken promises

Always a part of me

But I’ll keep on dreaming, yes

It’s what I always do

For one day on that horizon

I know that I’ll find you

HOPE’S HORIZON… a poem

Man, Board, Drawing, Muscles, Strong

When a broken heart

Can’t find the words

Who’ll be there to help it through

When depression strikes

And sucks you down

It seems there’s nothing you can do

Seasons come

And seasons go

You will find them in the past

So, hold on tight

And ride the ride

Until you’re whole again at last
