SAY GOODBYE… a poem

person crying beside bed

I didn’t get to say goodbye

I didn’t get to hold your hand

I didn’t get to see your face

Just one more time

Before my end

And you know I’ll be waiting

Here on the other side

God still has big plans for you

Yes, it’s okay to cry

I hope that you were proud of me

I hope my memories make you smile

I hope you never lose your faith

Sometimes it’s tempting

Just for awhile

And as you travel through your life

Please, always understand

We are temporary dwellers

Just dreamers in a fairyland

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

INSIDE THE PALE… a poem of faith

Aurora phenomenon

Be who you are

The power is inside

Reach for the stars

Have faith and not pride

Give voice to the voice

That resides in your heart

The words that you say

Can mend a soul torn apart

Speak kindness and love

And lead the right way

Smile and laugh often

Everyday

Time will soon come

And your ship will sail

Stay true in your faith

Live inside the pale

THOUGHTS OF COMFORT IN FAITH…

If I fall, I know the kiss of a thousand angel’s wings will catch me and set me upon the solid ground with a reassurance that can only come from God. If I lose a friend, my heart may break, but time will heal the heart and soul as our paths have been forever laid out before us in the book of life. We may not know what is written on those pages until we have ventured beyond them, but if we have faith in God, then it really doesn’t matter. Have faith and be well my friends!

FOR YOU… a love poem

Children, Forward, Skin Color

For you I’d count the stars at night

Then bring them down to see

For you I’d swim the ocean’s wide

It’s what you mean to me

girl wearing red and black plaid jacket holding flower

I’d give my life right now for you

Without a second guess

And feel the last beat of my heart

Because of you I’m blessed

gray asphalt road during sunset

I’d climb a height no one has climbed

And sing throughout the day

Then fly back down on eagle’s wings

Where in our bed we’d lay

Woman Lying On Bed

For you there’s nothing I won’t seek

Just to see your smile

For you have made my life complete

And happy – if just for awhile

BEREFT… micro story

His chest felt like it was sinking, untethered to anything, so too did his broken heart. Tears flowed in unfettered streams down his cheeks wetting his shirt. Sunlight glistened like tendrils of silver flecks within each drop. As for his heart… It was bereft of the only love it ever knew.
