Journey

Feet barely touching the ground
Time running in place flittering and fleeting
At this moment hardly a sound
Onto the next of life’s meetings

Settled into place
A flashing of a foreign decree
Surrounded by grace
Constantly I cannot see what’s ahead of me

Only in you myself is found
Connected and entwined as one
Forever we two are bound
Until my journey’s are done

Aurora Nights

Out in the clear skied night

Two tied souls look to the stars

Hearts entwined so tight

Thinking of each other from a far

A time soon to come

So much time apart

Uncertain of if their love has succumbed

Will they be able to restart

The heavens above a sign that it will take flight

Heavenly message given through Aurora nights.

I’m Back…..

Well hello all you out there in blog land, as you have noticed it’s been a while since I wrote. I’m on the mend and doing much better. My shoulder is healing good and getting stronger every day. This summer has been a long one and since I’m down here in Louisiana, a hot and humid one. I’m looking forward to moving back north. My days as a soldier are running down, so soon I will hang my boots up and be onto the next part of my life. Before then I have to deal with another birthday, it’s one of the big ones. I just want to thank everyone for their patience and their wishes and prayers for my healing. So today I reintroduce myself back into this world of blogging and say I have missed you all and look forward to hearing from you and reading all your amazing stories and poems. So off we go……..

A Father’s Joy

The sound of new life
A cry of such beauty
The miracle unfolds
She comes with 10 tiny toes
Blessing beyond compare
In a moment she is there
Taking my heart with her precious stare
Looking into our little wonder
That day so long ago
Our consecration of our love
Watching her grow from baby to child
From child to adolescent
Today she becomes an adult
From that first cry to her laughter so coy
She will always be her father’s pride and joy


Happy 18th Birthday Brianna….

Down for a bit!

Hello out there just wanted t say hello and let you know that I’m currently having to sit on the sidelines for a little while. I just had surgery on my right shoulder, had my rotator cuff repaired, had my bicep muscle moved and reattached and finally had part of my shoulder bone shaved back. I’m having to do everything left handed which has been an adventure in itself. Never realized how hard it is putting on your socks with one hand. Writing this has been an adventure. I will try to keep on reading and following your blogs as best I can. Thank you and God bless you all.

Decree of the Heart

The dream of a moment with you
Drives me each and every day
Next to you is where I feel whole
My love for you I extol
To touch your skin
Will always draw me in
To see your radiant smile
I would walk a thousand miles
You are all I will ever need
Wanting you my heart has decreed
I love you with all heart
Will never keep us apart


Picture is my own….Me and the love of my life.

Time

Time slips by slowly
Never going as fast as we wish
Or slowly when we need it to
Time together is to short
Time apart drags on and on
Slowly the seconds tick by
Making the minutes move on
With the hours passing into the past
The days mixing into each other
With the months feeling like eternity
Until that day I come home
Into your loving arms
Where I will pass the rest of my time
Until my time runs out
But I will make every second of it count
Because with you is where I belong always

Safety Suit – “Anywhere But Here”

Is this the end of the moment
Or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be
Or maybe be
Everything that I never thought could happen
Or ever come to pass and I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all you ever dreamed

Cause you are
Beautiful inside
So lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you

You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Is this a natural feeling
Or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams in hope
That you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember
Or just a cold day in December
I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all
you ever dreamed

Cause you are
Beautiful inside

so lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you
You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Is this the end of the moment
Or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be
For you and me

Cause you are
You’re beautiful inside,
you’re so lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you
You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Stages

Stages of life pass us by
First, we are baby’s dependent on those around us
Then we are children learn to run, jump and have fun
Followed by those teen years between a child and adult
As we begin our adult years there comes new experiences                                       From marriage to parenthood
Watching our children grow as we go along in our own lives
Growing through those stages of life we once traipsed
Then they reach that time for marriage and starting their own families
Becoming in-laws then grandparents
Oh grandparents a stage I recently came into
How wonderful it has been to watch my baby grow up and have her own baby
As I held my grandson for the first time
The magic of seeing my own daughter as a baby returned
Such a small little person, but so incredible to behold
That love of a child raised tenfold
How fascinated I was just to watch him there
A miracle that started when I met such a beautiful person so long ago
How our love created our own family which now has grown larger you see
Being a grandparent is a badge I wear with pride
A name I love to hear told into my ear
Thank you, Lord, for another wonderful gift
So perfectly made by the hand who made us all
