Wounds of My Past

Deep pains that I thought would never pass

Scars of my youth I tried to stay hidden

Running from what I thought was so wrong

Hiding within a mask wishing I would never be found

All these traumas and bruises of what I believed not right

Kept me from you and out of the light

For years I hid from you what was hidden in my head

I thought I was a monster who should have been dead

You came to me with only your tenderness

I hid from you in the wilderness

Then a day came where it all began to crack

Letting my guard down I came out of the black

Opening up to you about my pains and my past

I thought you would flee

But instead you stayed with me

Freedom I found that day not long ago

Breaking these chains from my that which held me low

With that freedom came a love I had denied

It flowed from me like river run wild

My scars and pains laid bare

A love I have for you is eternal I swear

Tempest

Waves sweeping me back in forth
Driving me upon on unknown course
Wind whips all around
Not a sight of land to be found
Caught in a mighty gale
How can I ever prevail?
Tossed and turned like a rag doll
Caught within this ungodly squall
I reach for something to hold on tight
Something that brings me safety in the stormy night
Arms that are meant for me
Beauty at her sight sets me free
Pulls me out of this tempest churning
Into the love we both have been yearning.

The Dream of All Dreams

A thousand miles away

He sits alone in his room

Waiting for that special day

When their time together can resume

 

The thoughts of what is to come

Drives him forward through each day

As he feels his world come undone

He knows he must pray

 

His heart for her has always been smitten

Even though she may not believe it true

The day they met it was written

She made his zest for life brand new

 

So, he sits and waits alone

Sometimes just wanting to scream

He remembers his love back home

Which is the dream of all dreams

Two Lives

Two lives upon this earth did meet
From separate worlds they did greet
Fell for one another once upon a time
A romance that felt so sublime
As the years passed by
Their relationship began to petrify
Conversations not had
The spark had gone dead
At the end of the rope
When they both had lost hope
A second chance did arise
Though many tears they did cry
The scars though run deep
Causing many restless nights of sleep
A spark of love began to flame
But distance between did gain
Two different people they did become
What in the end would be the outcome
Searching for things anew
A life together seen through

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

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.

Amethyst Tears

A day like no other
Upon waiting for her lover
The one in her life that made everything right
Praying with all her might
Wishing for his return
For that is what she yearned
Until the news broke
The words she feared the most was spoke
It was her worst fear
All she could cry was her Amethyst tears

Dandelion Dreams

dandelion-698673_960_720

Dreams of far off places

Wishes for adventures in exotic lands

Hoping for best friends

Praying that her daddies trip will soon end

Blowing upon a weed full of hope

She exhales upon her dandelion dreams

Spreading her dreams, hopes, wishes and prayers upon the wind

She watches them glide away into the sky

Watching then fly into the clouds with a tear in her eyes.

Path of Life

the-sun-470317_960_720

Upon a path we each walk

Hoping to be on a solid bedrock

Often our path gets muddy with pitfalls along its course

Looking to not get stuck in remorse

How we get through those patches of pain

Without getting stained

Is how we build character and fortitude

An inner strength we will exude

But how do we conquer those traps that we cannot escape

Who can you turn to keep you in shape

There is one we can place our hope and trust in

The Lord our God who is our savior

Hand in Hand

affection-2178174_960_720

The future is an uncertain mystery

We want to be able to control every aspect

Thinking we know all that comes next

But one day we are here and the next we are not

So as our future together is full of fright

Wishing we will always walk in the light

I know that there will be days full of rain

As long as I’m with you I will not be strained

For my future is with you that is all I know

Wherever that journey takes us we will go

With God as our guide

And you by my side

Hand in hand we will go forth

Whether it by East, West, North or South
