Journey Back

should-you-get-back-together

There was a time you loved me with no doubt

Then one day that love ran out

The feelings you had for me where gone

You wanted nothing but to be left alone

A sad heart was what afflicted you

I had ignored your cries, I ignored your pleas

Abandoning your despair, you were prepared to leave

I became distraught I became bereaved

Crying out to God to change this blackened heart of mine

Running out of time

He heard my cries, He heard my pleas

A changed heart was His decree

My heart is yours wholly if you desire

Winning your love is what I aspire

This journey to join us back as one

A pilgrimage I will travel until I have won

Love Is

My Love is Patient

I will wait until my last breath is taken

My Love is Kind

Gently I will always hold you and be there for you

My Love does not Envy

I am proud of all your talents and who you are

My Love does not Boast

I know my needs are not more important than yours

My Love is not Proud

I have done things to hurt you and have not always been the husband I should be

My Love is not Rude

My ears will listen, my mouth will stay quiet and my attention will be on you

My Love is not Self-Seeking

I don’t want me to be more than you, I want me to be us forever

My Love is not easily angered

I understand and will look at things from your side also

My Love Keeps No Records of Wrongs

What was done is done, I still love you with all my heart and soul

My Love will Never Fail

I will be at your side until the end. You are my one and only

 

Not the best poem, but it goes out to my wonderful, beautiful, talented, amazing, caring, I could go on and on Wife. You are part of my soul and though we have been going through some rough times. I will always be there like I hadn’t been. I am sorry for the way I took you for granted and denied your needs. I just want you to know I am going to be the husband you want and deserve. I am still amazed everyday that you choose me. Today, Tomorrow, Forever is my Love for you. Keep being that shining light and please continue to be my partner in this thing we call Life.  All My Love..

 

 

 

 

 

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…..

Magically Musical

Like angels in heaven
Playing a tune meant for creation
Upon the winds it sweeps so pleasant
A Heavenly narration
It surrounds you in joy
Making a picture of beauty
A song made just for you to enjoy
It can’t help but take away the gloomy
The call of nature is irrefutable
For its sounds are purely magically musical

Blue skies and blossoms

Laying on the ground
Daisy’s grew all around
Into the heavens she stared
Wondering if anyone cared
Looking for a sign from above
Upon the sky she spied a white dove
For she found what she sought
The beauty of all creation she thought
Was given to her that day
While under those blue skies and blossoms, she lay
In her silence she stopped and prayed
She knew then that God was with her that day.

Changes

road-166543_960_720

Today marks an end

Having to say goodbye to so many friends

A change in life

Can bring so much strife

Uncertainties abound

Clarity often not found

Praying each day

That God will lead my way

An end to a chapter

One that was full of tears and laughter

A new journey I start

Following the call within my heart

A new road ahead

On wings of an eagle I am led

A Journey Among the Stars

galaxy-779335_960_720

Riding on the tails of stars

Heading to distant giant quasars

Flying beyond the regions

Once only seen by God’s own legions

Passing beyond the Milky Way

Beyond the known light of day

Moving so fast I go beyond

Faster than the speed of sound

Past planets, asteroids and comets flying by

Into areas only seen by the Creator’s own eyes

A journey up into the heavens

I can feel myself among his very presence

Words of a Writer

girl-993546_960_720

Places, people and imaginary creatures

Pink tutu ballerinas dancing in the bleachers

Clouds lazily move across skies of unimaginable colors

Two lovers express words brought to life in Technicolor

Amazing lands full of magic and wonder

Pirates raiding the high seas for plunder

Vampires and werewolves full of sex appeal

People praying to God with full zeal

So many things come from her head

Written down with paper and a pen

Like a sword it strikes blows that pierce your heart

Words that make a pictures like a painter does to art

She amazes me with each word she writes

Talent never-ending like a satellite roaming across a dark night

Once Upon a Time

love-2519392_960_720

As a little girl

Her dreams that made up her world

Once upon a time

Made these characters sublime

Princesses and fairies

Made life so merry

Dragons and monsters

Would be her nighttime haunters

As she grew to into a woman

Dreams of life and love

Of a knight in shining armour

One who would be one day her charmer

Knowing one day her prince would come from afar

Wishing upon a star

She found her one true love

Sent from God and heaven above


Written for my daughters.
