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

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

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

Old Soldier

soldiers-856034_960_720

When do you realize it is time to settle

Taking your foot off the peddle

Deciding that it’s time to step back

When you are young you look forward to what comes next

Always pushing yourself to reach a higher level

Moving on from one opportunity to another

When is it time to realize those opportunities are dwindling

Time waits for no man they say

So when will I know that day

Taking that one last attempt

To continue a career that you love

So much says it is time to quit

Enjoy what you have done and stop doing it

Move onto the next stage of your life

Your body is full of aches and pains

Mind not as sharp, but still there most of the time

I am a soldier that is what I have known for over twenty-one years

Not done in my heart or in my head

A few good years left inside this old soul

Proving again to myself of my worth

What happens to old soldiers when it is time to go

As it was once said

Old soldiers never die, they just fade away

Shadows of My Past

soldier-1927614_960_720

Shadows of my past

Following me into the twilight

Forever leaving an imprint on my days

Sometimes pulling me back

Leaving a note of melancholy on my soul

Only the melody of your love pulls me through

A light in the darkness of this world

You are the Way, the Truth and the Light

Showing this sinner a worth that was lost

Leading my steps forward on this path of my life

You are my Shepard

Into your arms I will go

Leaving these shadows of my past

Radiant

Radiant upon my face

Flowing into my soul

Beauty exudes from its glow

Happiness brightens my day

Your smile takes me away

I long to feel its warmth

Lips filled with passion

Wearing a hotly designed fashion

Wishing to make it mine

From now until the end of time

 

Night Songs

inspiration-life-live-magic-favim_com-3909120

Whispers on the night

Passing across the miles

From the song of my heart

To the depths of your soul

Along the pathway to your dreams

I play a tune meant only for you

A lullaby to ease your restless slumber

May you sense when you wake

Of my love so true

Only meant for you

 

Forgiveness

Today has been a tough day I will not lie

I look at myself and wonder why

Holding back my emotions and feelings for so long

Disaster strikes and the dam pieces fly

A flood of emotions come pouring out

Unsure on how to control them without getting hurt

Today was a tough day I will not lie

However I look to God and see what he did for us

Forgiven even my broken soul

Unsure on how this could be

But unconditional He loves me

I trust in you to bring me through

A path ahead not easy or wide

Forgiveness I give as he has given unto me

Moving ahead is what I seek

A future ahead a past behind

Today was a tough day I will not lie

But God still loves me and I trust in Him.
