Ramblings

The silence abounds all around me

Only the quiet clacking of my keyboard tapping

Thoughts and visions of her face is what I see

Her love is what keeps my mind from snapping

The days they pass by in slow haze

Waiting upon this ending so I can start a new beginning

Trying to fight this deadly malaise

Until then my thoughts inside my head keep spinning

For she is my light in the dark

Upon her soul I take hold

Waiting for the journey of life with her to embark

Next to her is where I want to be as I grow old

Upon a Future Path

Upon a path of our life forthcoming

Which will begin before my homecoming

We look to take a different pathway

Beginning on your coming birthday

An adventure of excitement we seek

Into a life we create unique

This journey we go as two

Finding a stimulus above and beyond we do

Our future we will create our own

An amazing path we shall be sown

Life lived on our terms we shall pursue

Your birthday will be only a preview

Back to You

Mistakes I have made
Errors in thought so grave
Anger an enemy of mine
Loneliness is such a crime
Regret for my past sins
Hope for our future ahead
Please forgive me for being insecure
For my true heart beats for you so pure
Each day I wake, I look to the sky and pray
I will be back to you soon one day
Brings me one day closer back to your arms
Where in your heart glows a love so warm

Time Slips By

Time slips by slow and lazy

Pleading for it to go faster

Leaving the days hazy

Somedays it is my master

 

A future that lies ahead

Wishing it was now here

But time slips by like the walking dead

Wanting the days to just disappear

 

A light so dims in the tunnel

But each day that passes

Brings us nearer as a couple

Still the days move like molasses

 

Near to my heart

Is where you will always be

You have been there since the start

Our future is bright I foresee

 

Soon the time will be counted away

Coming home to you

I shall forever stay

We shall embrace in a romantic rendezvous

Doubt to Hope

Doubt creeps into my head
Losing you is my biggest fear
Through this my insecurities fed
Feeling you fade away my dear

Being so far apart
A mistake of mine I see
Weighs so heavily on my heart
With you is where I need to be

Seeing your face upon the screen
Your words of love I hold onto
The missteps in my life you’ve seen
But you’ve yet to say adieu

I hold onto a future so bright
You and I become Us
Next to you feels so right
Together again is a must

Failure

maxresdefault

A life full of promise

A life wasted away

Full of endless failures

Broken promises strewn along the way

Days and months and years away from home

Missing holidays, birthdays and so many special days

A heart breaks because I have gone a separate way

Chasing a chance that slowly slips away

Not thinking of the destruction I have left in my wake

Failure chases me day after day

Why do I keep going down these lonely trails

Reaching for something, to no avail

Thinking of the future

While throwing away the present

Leaving tears, and a broken heart of the one I love

When will I learn to be content

Instead of living a life barren of

 

You Are

You are my past

Without you I wouldn’t last

You are my yesterday

Caught within your arms is a place I would love to stay

You are my today

My love for you will never go away

You are my tomorrow

Time apart brings upon sorrow

You are my future

Our dreams of then will be beyond super

You are my forever

Two hearts made into one is our endeavor

#TuesdayTunes – Toby Keith “American Soldier”

Today I begin my new journey and path in my life. I am going back into the Active Army to finish out my career. I don’t know all were this will take me, but I am ready to give it a go. Being older than most of the people I will be serving with should be interesting. I have enjoyed my last 10 years in the National Guard and have made many friends, but now I have a greater task and purpose in my life. Please pray for my family as we will be apart for some time. I am an American Soldier….

Sorry……

Pain Pain Pain

Is all I ever give you

Sadness Sadness Sadness

Is all I ever put into your life

All I have ever done is bring tears to your eyes

Depression, Despair and Defeat

What I have only provided from my actions

Taking a stake to your heart

Is what I have done since the start

Why do you put up with me still

Bringing you sadness and tears

Fulfilling all your fears

All I can say is taking steps forward are scary

When there is so much to be weary

But to you I make this vow

No matter where I go or where I am

I take you with me wherever I go

Always today, tomorrow and forever


 

Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

When I thought the world was all mine

So many opportunities in front of me

What would I grow up to be

A doctor, a lawyer, a farmer, a fast-food worker

Off to college I went to find my order

Enjoyed the time I spent at school

Often times getting drunker than a fool

I knew after a while that this was not for me

So I knew then what I would become

For my lifes outcome

The course that I chose as I grew older

Was for me to become a soldier
