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

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

What I’ve Been Up To

IMG_2324.JPGHello all my Blogger friends out there. Just wanted to let you all know what has been going on with myself. Well I’m not sick or anything like that.  I have made that large change in my life. This journey over the past month has taken me to South Carolina and now to Fort Polk in Louisiana for now. Next month my journey will take me even farther away from my family for an extended amount of time. Once I can get myself settled in I will be back amongst you my friends. Please pray for my family during this time we are apart. Thank you for your time and understanding.

#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….

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

Together

old-people-545232_960_720

Upon you I find my courage

To reach for a future with you

When I look into your eyes

I find a time ahead so bright

Journey’s ahead to see all we have talked about

To reach that moment trials will we face

Together we will make it through

From sea to shining sea, across the oceans we will go

Until such a day when eternity we shall reach

Hand in hand we shall go to that end

Till we walk the roads made of gold

Upon A Cloud

hayden-valley-63564_960_720

Tell me what the sound a cloud makes

Let me know what it takes

To find where it begins and where it ends

What that journey they make intends

As I watch them pass me by

Wishing to myself I could fly

Free as they float across the sky

Seeing all that lies below

Oh how I wish I could go

Over the trees and above the mountains

A soul set free to see all of God’s creation below

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
