Hope

Hope is such a small but exciting word
Even when things look bleakest
Hope is a knowledge that there is always light in the darkness
It allows you to continue on
And it shows you a path to go upon
Hope is just that an idea that things will get better
So when you feel like your life is down
Search for that word that will turn it around
Hope will find you when you least expect it
Providing you an idea of what life can be
So keep your chin up
And always look for the hope in the good
Because when you realize it
It is always darkest before the dawn
God gave us a hope in this world
Through his son who is the Light of this World
So find that hope and it will set you free.
As it has done for me

For someone I hold dear, never lose hope…..

All Alone

Sitting in my room all alone
As my world crashes around me
All those I love have turned away
No one to trust no one who cares
So I sit all alone pondering my future
It grows dimmer and dimmer by the hour
Soon in will fade to black
And with that there is no coming back.


This maybe my last post for a while or maybe forever. I don’t know. Thank you all for reading my stuff. Goodbye…

What I See When I Look At You

What I see when I look at you
I see a future that is so bright
Your smile shines right into my soul
Looking into your eyes puts me into a trance
I am unable to look away from your beauty
Yet you are so much more to me
Compassion for others, with a heart so big and loving
So beautiful on the outside, and so beautiful on the inside
A gift from God you are to me
Every moment you are on my thoughts
I talk to the breeze hoping it sends you my love
To hold you in my arms is one of my greatest desires
Holding you close and never letting go
So I send this note of love your way
To let you know that I am never going away
Two become one and we are stronger together
Always and Forever are not just words, but a promise to be together
No more insecurities of what we have
A bond made through time that will last until the end.


For the Love of my life or as you may know her: https://herwritinghaven.com/

She is my One and Only….

The Last Link

Who would have believed it
Unless they saw it with their own two eyes
Such a strange little man was he
Who would have thought so much was within
A power that was unexpected you see
To the people all around
A hero had been found
To be a savior was unexpected in the least
Saving those he loved
And to think
That he was the last link
A savior for the world

A New Fallen Snow

The wind blows briskly across the pasture
Trees swaying to and fro
A night made to avoid disaster
The moon above brings and enlightened glow
A chill in the air felt to the bone
Wrapping its self all around
A white cover over the trees has been sewn
As a new fallen snow covers the world

The Edge of Forever

Upon a journey he had never experienced

Never before had he believed possible

Against all probability

Along roads that had seen nothing but rejection

Many routes he did follow all ended in near destruction

Finally, a path found that led him to the edge of forever

He stumbled along that razor thin ridge line

Scared that this might end in his final decline

When all hope was thought lost

Over the edge he tossed

Unto forever his heart found a home

And into a place it was meant to roam

The Order of Things Unseen

Behind the veil

Something is hidden beyond your reach

To describe it would be such a tale

Strangeness of your thoughts forever beseeched

Telling you the story of what could be

Hidden behind your mind’s smokescreen

So outlandish to one who would see

Because it’s still left to the order of things unseen

Leaving you to ever ponder what your mind has imagined

Sitting behind that veil

Alone

I sit here alone
Thoughts of my life running around in my head
Looking back on my mistakes I bemoan
The quietness brings upon nothing but dread
Distance sound of the whistle of a train horn
A stillness in the air abounds
Silence surrounds me like a sleeping newborn
Flashes of my past play in the background
Knowing my life is passing me by
Misery over what I have missed
These thoughts make me want to cry
Memories of mistakes cannot be dismissed
So, I sit here alone in my thoughts
Tearing me up inside leaving myself twisted in knots

Macaroni Madness

Down the road beyond the turn in the bend

Upon which the road did end

There lived a peculiar family I do say

I first met them on a hot and muggy Wednesday

When I met them, they seemed just a normal sort

The Father seem I right spiffy old sport

And Mother you could tell was a looker back in her day

The children a boy and a girl seemed squared away

So how could this family be beyond the norm you ask

It was you see all a mask

For soon their true colors did appear

And it was something that should have been quite clear

Within there house it was told

Of a strange proclivity this family did hold

Upon their all the walls

Up and down the halls

In the cupboards and up on the ceiling

It was quite revealing

Was noodles of all kinds

Spaghetti, ziti, elbow, egg and all that you can imagine come to mind

The furniture was covered from one side to the next

Patterns that were really complex

When they took them away

The towns folk would often just say

Them parents must have been filled with badness

Because it seemed like it was nothing but macaroni madness

Tuesday Tunes 80’s Version – Squeeze “Tempted”

One of the first bands on the Alternative scene that I really got into due to watching MTV (when it actually showed music videos)

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
A flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush
New shoes and a case
I said to my reflection
“Let’s get out of this place”

Passed the church and the steeple
The laundry on the hill
Billboards and the buildings
Memories of it still
Keep calling and calling
But forget it all, I know I will

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I’m at the car park, the airport
The baggage carousel
(The people keep on grindin’)
Ain’t wishing I was well
I said it’s no occasion
(It’s no story I could tell)

At my bedside empty pocket
A foot without a sock
Your body gets much closer
I fumble for the clock
Alarmed by the seduction
I wish that it would stop

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I bought a novel, some perfume
A fortune all for you
But it’s not my conscience
That hates to be untrue
I asked of my reflection
Tell me what is there to do?

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
