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

A blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume.

Within a moment in time
Feeling the miles that separate us
Fleeting pictures of you in my mind
Wishing for the time to go by
The thought of your touch
A dream of your kiss
Looking upon the face of my angel
Your voice calling out my name in passion
So many images run through my head
As I wrap myself on this cold winter night
Dreaming the dream that is my one true love
To be back in your arms
For the rest of our days
All these thoughts of you run through my soul
As I sit here under a blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume
Swirling in my head.

A mirror image of who he once was.

Once a dashing young prince of a man

A smile that would make the ladies swoon

Covered from head to toe in a bronze tan

The stature of a legendary British Dragoon

Feats of bravery and daring heard near and far

Winning the ladies hearts across the land

Many looked upon him like a star

His good looks and hard body went hand in hand

But as always, the case

A foe beyond his strength did rise

His slow fall from grace

An enemy did take him by surprise

It was neither man nor beast

An adversary that was so sublime

A fight he put up at least

The prosecutor of his demise

Was an enemy without pause

An opposition working overtime

Made him a mirror image of who he once was

The enemy of his was non-other than father time.

Time Slips By

Time slips by slow and lazy

Pleading for it to go faster

Leaving the days hazy

Somedays it is my master

 

A future that lies ahead

Wishing it was now here

But time slips by like the walking dead

Wanting the days to just disappear

 

A light so dims in the tunnel

But each day that passes

Brings us nearer as a couple

Still the days move like molasses

 

Near to my heart

Is where you will always be

You have been there since the start

Our future is bright I foresee

 

Soon the time will be counted away

Coming home to you

I shall forever stay

We shall embrace in a romantic rendezvous

Failure

maxresdefault

A life full of promise

A life wasted away

Full of endless failures

Broken promises strewn along the way

Days and months and years away from home

Missing holidays, birthdays and so many special days

A heart breaks because I have gone a separate way

Chasing a chance that slowly slips away

Not thinking of the destruction I have left in my wake

Failure chases me day after day

Why do I keep going down these lonely trails

Reaching for something, to no avail

Thinking of the future

While throwing away the present

Leaving tears, and a broken heart of the one I love

When will I learn to be content

Instead of living a life barren of

 

Path

wanderer-455338_960_720

What do you do when time stands still

Unsure of the steps that will take you forward

Not wanting to take any back

Caught in the middle of a wasteland

Anxiousness can be overbearing

Wanting to move ahead

Time however moves onward like molasses

Patience is a virtue they say

Wishing I could stay patient awaiting the next day

So Lord I wait upon your word

To send me unto the path designed by your hand for me

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

Time Apart

soldier-390202_960_720

Time apart from you

Left for work saying adieu

Mind wanders around

Can make me feel down

The beep of my phone

Means a message from back home

Where you wait for me

The place I would rather be

Biding my time until I see you again

The waiting can drive me insane

Walking through the door

Arriving to your kisses and so much more

Until that time comes

I will sit here all glum

Until that time all my love I send to you.

 

Across the Room

kiss-1858088_960_720

Looking at you from across the room

The beauty of my flower in bloom

Time has passed since we first met

A look from you leaves me in a cold sweat

Unable to divert my eyes

A ravenous hunger arises

Moving to you I pull you close

Into my arms I propose

A time of wantonness desire

Rising in us a fire

Passion unabated we explore

Until we are spent with no more

Curled together we hold each other tight

Off we fall into a blissful night

Tick Tock

 

Tick tock tick tock

My thoughts are at a block

Ideas refuse to flow

Why, I just don’t know

Looking for words to present

My brain is completely spent

Tick tock tick tock

Times passes by

Into the ethereal my attention flies

Wasted away

My focus sways

Tick tock tick tock
