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

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

Lonely

The miles between you and I are hard to take

A decision I made was an awful mistake

Leaving behind what I love and adore

For a chance at something, what for

Each day that passes brings me near

To the one I cherish my dear

Home in your arms I belong

I just wish it wouldn’t take so long

My life with you is what I desire

To be with you I shall never tire

You my love are my one and only

Away from you my life is lonely

Moonlight Excursions

night-913046_960_720

Walking out under the stars

Left to ponder what is ahead

Wondering where you are

Trying to overcome my thoughts so dread

Upon a stream of glowing light

I look upon a dark sky above

My eyes take in a beautiful sight

I think of the one I love

A kiss to the heavens I send

I walk this trail alone

Hoping my heart reaches to you I pretend

All the way from here to home

I take these moonlight excursions

The rays of which fill me with aversion

To the pain I feel being apart

From the one who holds my heart.

Love Affair

10593107_911559682191607_4896015716373845940_n

What do you do when you are miles apart

Without you what shall I do

When I feel that pain within my heart

Wishing I was next to you

Upon a star I wish at night

Upon a prayer I wish I was there

Hearing your voice my heart takes flight

This story of our love affair

Built over time

Washing off so much grime

Trials and tribulations we have endured

A relationship that has matured

Upon these journeys we have created

The love we have both awaited

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

What a Difference a Year Makes

What a difference a year makes

Just twelve short months ago we were as far apart as the earth and the moon

Both hidden inside ourselves

Ready for it all to end

A love we thought built to last

A union of two coming to past

Miracles we soon learned do exist

At a bottom, our relationship did almost land

But two hearts were taken in hand

A hand of God placed upon us

Light of the world shown into our lives

Rising out of that dark place we had settled

Day by day we learned to love one another

A truer more deeper love than we had known before

Doubts were always on the horizon, challenges still lay in our path

Fighting for what we had begun so many years ago had just begun

Good days and bad, we made it through

Now ahead lays the biggest challenge we will face

Just know that my heart burns only for you

You are my love, my life, my one true bright shining star

Just twelve short months ago, I know it would have ended in ruins

But know now my heart and soul rests with you and yours with me

Wherever I go, here my heart will be

A future of brightness we have ahead

Adventures and journeys together we shall share

Know my love for you knows no bounds

No height, no depth will keep me from being around

For what a difference a year makes between us

How Do You Heal a Hurt

patch-2328289_960_720

How do you heal a hurt

A pain that is ever present

Knowing that what causes it will never go away

How do you fix an injury to the soul

A deep scar that is always there

Flaring up when they are least aware

Sometimes a hug or a word are enough of a salve

To put out the fire of that deep painful ache

How do you help the one you love

Whatever the solution I have yet to find

But I will never stop until the end of time

Waiting

underground-1715279_960_720

Upon a dream I wait

Voices in my head drive my doubt

Telling me it will never happen

Why do you believe you deserve this outcome

Trying to push them out

Anxiety takes hold

I try to stay bold

My heart says all will be as willed

Upon peace it shall be filled

Agonizing over the ticking of the clock

Pushing against a giant rock

Knowing that God is at work

Upon his path I shall wait

Not easy to stand still within the storm

Praying that word shall come down soon

Waiting like a cowboy for high noon
