Misty Morning Melancholy

As the darkness of night fades away
Before the brightness of the coming day
She sits upon a bed made for two
Another night she has made it through
Counting each moment, they are apart
Her heart was his from the very start
Knowing that the time grows short
The words of his love upon which she finds support
Upon this morn she finds no jolly
It is nothing but another misty morning melancholy

#TuesdayTunes – Pop Evil “Torn To Pieces”

Wow, such a powerful song, that’s why I put the one with the lyrics. This song just hit me hard. I think back to my big sister, she was the one that really left an imprint on me in so many ways. I still think would she be proud of what her little brother has become. I don’t know if she really realized how important she was to her little brother. I hope she knows, but it does sometimes I still feel torn to pieces.

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

Apart

Being apart

Has been hard from the start

Leaving you alone

A sin I must atone

By your side

Is where I should reside

My past mistakes

Left you with heart aches

Our love is honest and true

But what can I do

Feeling you slipping away

Praying you will stay

Without you

I am through

Hoping you’re still there I pray

Knowing I should have stayed

Hoping it’s not too late

To set our love straight

Sometimes decisions you make you think are right, but in the end the just aren’t. I’m sorry!!!!

The Absence of Her

It was four years ago today

That you left and passed away

A lifetime we spent together

I thought you would be around forever

When I was little you protected me from the monsters at night

That would come out when there was no light

As I got older you told it to me straight

If I was acting a fool you let me know post haste

When I was in trouble you were always there for me

You were the best big sister you could be

Always there when I asked

You were there to help so fast

Now you are gone and my heart breaks

Pain so great I don’t know if I can take

The absence of her still hurts in my soul

Without her in my life I will never be whole

____________________

For my big sister Donna, I miss you each and everyday.  You were the best big sister a boy could ask for.

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

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

Sorry……

Pain Pain Pain

Is all I ever give you

Sadness Sadness Sadness

Is all I ever put into your life

All I have ever done is bring tears to your eyes

Depression, Despair and Defeat

What I have only provided from my actions

Taking a stake to your heart

Is what I have done since the start

Why do you put up with me still

Bringing you sadness and tears

Fulfilling all your fears

All I can say is taking steps forward are scary

When there is so much to be weary

But to you I make this vow

No matter where I go or where I am

I take you with me wherever I go

Always today, tomorrow and forever


 

Sister

Even as time passes

The pain does not go away

Memories of you drift through my mind

So many things I wish I had said to you

So many things I still want to talk to you about

You were the one I went to when I was scared as a child

The one I would tell my troubles to as I grew older

When I needed someone to kick some sense into me

You were the one who knew what I needed to hear

I know I could be a bratty little brother

But you loved me just the same

My heart still aches every day without you still around

You left this world way too early

So many tears have been shed from my eyes

I wish I could have said goodbye

I send this message to you my dear sister wherever you may be

I love you and miss you so

With love from your baby brother……

Empathetic Heart

girl-690327_960_720

Thoughts of past days run through your mind

Some full of fun and others not so kind

Thinking back on those times bring despair

Makes you wonder why do I care

What makes you this way you ponder so deep

Causing your heart to tear and weep

The person you are is so full of so much love

You find ways to show compassion like our God above

When people are hurting, you feel that too

An empathetic heart reaching out to those sad and blue

So, caring for those who despair

You are a person so full of tenderness, kindness and grace

The reason you feel is because of how much you care

I am so amazed at the beauty inside

A heart and soul so amplified

By the tenderheartedness found in you


*Dedicated to my wife who has the biggest heart full of love that I know. She cares so deeply for people and I am always amazed by you.*
