Anticipation of You


Anticipation of you

Time passes slowly as I think of what we will do

Being apart is a drain on my soul

You are what in the end makes me whole

When I walk through that door

It is you I look for

The look in your eyes

Makes me begin to fantasize

What our night may bring

You are my everything

A night of passion

A night of conversation

A night next to you

Is all I want to do

So I sit here still

Waiting with Anticipation

Creeping crawling under your skin

Not sure of where you should begin

Twisting turning trying to reach

Scratching clawing unable to find

Driving you crazy outta of your mind

Rubbing against a door frame for relief

Finding none but disbelief

Grabbing a stick if you dare

Rubbing it around without a care

Still no reprieve from that gnawing itch

It drives you crazy, son of a bitch

Asking a friend to dig in with their claws

Keep on missing the spot just because

Sweat forms on your brow

As you seek a respite

Trying to take a bite

Falling to the floor you try once more

Sliding yourself until your head hits the door

That itch, that itch

Ain’t it a bitch.



What do you do when the one you love is sad and blue

How do you make the hurt stop

Telling them it will be ok

Won’t take the pain away

A hug, a kiss or a look

Will this help today

Just being there for them

It is what I try to do

Inside I feel a failure

However I shall never give up

Never go away

I will love you each day

Until those blues are a memory left in the past

My love for you is what will last


Darkness Into Light



Lost in the night


Hidden from your sight


A thief comes to snatch away your soul


Sadness he leaves


Uncertainty it breeds


Dreams created that leave you morose


When you awake


You’re left with heartache


Looking for the light


Needing help with this fight


Upon the Lord your hope rests


Grace and mercy He provides when you confess


Upon Him you can rely


To take that tear away from your eye


Taking the darkness out of the night


Make your way into His light




My mind wanders as I think of you

To feel your hand in mine

Next to you is where I feel safe

Close to you brings a smile to my face

I long to feel  the caress of your hands

Touching my lips to yours I desire

Kissing your neck takes us higher

An electric current running between

Magnetism pulls us closer still

Unable to deny, unable to fight

I long for the day when we two become one again

I have come to that day where two have become one again…….






Time is always moving

Something we think we can control

Always believing we have more than we do

When time goes against us

We always say I wish I had more

The real problem is not how much, but how we use it

Loved ones, friends and family

Always finding reasons why we can’t be with them

Always saying I have plenty of time

Then one day that time is done

Loved ones gone, friends go away, family grows older

We always complain I wish I only had more time

Take that time now

Tell your friends, family, children, and loved ones

How much you love them

Take that time and put away your distractions

Go on that trip, play that game or spend that time with them

Before it is too late.


In Remembrance


Life so full of hope

A future so bright

So many lives did he touch

Smiles to all he met

Jokes and laughter staples in his life

Surrounded by friends until the end

A young man’s life cut short

We will never know why

God has a plan for all his children

Not only here but in heaven above

He is now an angel looking down

A light for those who knew him

His memory will never fade from our hearts

A young man who resides with God above

A world full of the hearts he touched below

Today we cry

Tomorrow we mourn

Down the road our paths will meet once more

In remembrance of a young man who we knew from a boy, who’s life was tragically cut short.  Rest In Peace…

Growing up we make friends all around

Some are close and some you just know

They come in all shapes and sizes

For different reasons at different times

We love the time we spend with them

Hoping it will never end

As we grow our friends often change

What we enjoy and what we do affects what we do

Friends from school

Friends from the neighborhood

Friends from sports, church or so much more

As we go into adulthood our friendships change again

Marriages, children and changes to our lives

Now they come from where we work

Where we live and from who our kids know

The closeness we had when we were kids

Replaced by that feeling of unknown

Hoping for that tightness we had when we were young

Someone to laugh with and tell our secrets to

Sometimes we get lucky and find such a friend

We hope that they will be around through thick and thin

A friend like that is hard to find indeed
