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.

Keeper of Her Heart

Once upon a time
He was the keeper of her heart
Held tightly at the start
Eventually that heart did stray
And now it has gone away
Taking it for granted was his crime
Now alone he will spend his time
For he is no longer the keeper of her heart
And now they are apart

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

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

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

Relationship Reconciliation

divorce-908743_960_720

Does she love me

Does she even care anymore

What is going on in her mind

I bet she finds me ugly and unattractive

 

Does he love me

Does he even care anymore

What does he think about

Is he even there

 

Does she find me unappealing

Is she regretting ever being with me

Were is she now

 

Has he ever really loved me

I think he finds me ugly

Is there someone else out there for me

 

Why is this happening to me

What should I do

Is it time for me to leave

 

Maybe we should really talk

Talk about what is going on

Find out what the other is thinking

 

Hi how are you doing

What is wrong between us

What can we I do to have you stay

 

I do love you

I love you to

You are so beautiful

You are so handsome

 

Each day is a new day

Put yesterday in the past

Together in the now

Start fresh with each new day

Forgive and move on

Together Forever……..

 

 

Apart

distance-love-miss-you-you-favim_com-4527112

While you are away

While you are gone

My Love for you will not sway

I feel you in my heart

I feel you in my soul

Distance does not keep us apart

In the past letters were written by pen and paper

Then emails made are word come quicker

Phone calls once a king’s ransom have become a pittance

Now a text, Skype or FaceTime makes communication slicker

But nothing changes with the pieces of my heart

They are tied to you

From the day I said I do

 

 

 

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…..

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
