All Hallow’s Eve Fest

The brown Autumn leaves rustle fiercely through the
chilled evening air.
Aromas of pumpkin pie, roasting turkey and spice
Cinnamon waft through the festive air.

Blinking Jack-O-Lanterns and black cats on display
decorate many of the home’s windows in the sleepy town.
Skeleton bones and goblins, witches and pirates adorn many
doors.

Spooky movies are played on every television channel.
Costume shops are open until late, inviting the towns folks
to become vampires, ballerinas, monsters, and mermaids.

The town’s carnival has car rides that take bold and
fearless souls into a time capsule.
The adventurous see sharp swords and laughing pirates.
Vampires in black cloaks shed blood and display their
sharp fangs, jumping out at them.

All Hollow’s Eve has arrived. Loud knocks can be heard
on the citizen’s doors throughout the spooky night.
Pumpkins are held up for coins, candy and a surprise
at neighbor’s and stranger’s homes.
Princesses and ballerinas, monsters and dragons present
themselves at the citizen’s door for a delicious reward.

The community clock strikes midnight loudly with
spooky tunes played by chimes.
All the ghoul’s spooky fun is over until next
Hollow’s Eve.

Soldier

The sun will set in the distance
But my arms will never rest.
The moon will take over the night
But my legs will never stop.
The red rain will fall upon my family
But my body will press on.

The door will come crashing down.
The walls will disappear.
The spirit will drown.
The mind……gone.
The friends I once knew…..fall.

But my head will stay put
My arms will raise
My eyes will stay keen
My hope will secure.

Come storm
Come red rain
Come night
Come day
Come death

I will persevere
I will walk on.

One Day You Will Be My Future Wife

I love her with all my heart and soul
I’ll always love her until the day we grow old
Even when she’s feeling sad and alone
I will be the one to show her where love can be grown
In the center of her heart is where I want to be
Kyera is the name my little girl will have
Always happy and loving life to the fullest
Like her mommy when she was with me
You could tell when she smiles along the stars
Sparkling in her eyes when she cries
Tears of joy when the day comes almost to an end
Getting down on one knee asking for her hand
I know in her heart she will be glad
Not just because of this special moment in life
But me asking her to be my future wife
This day will always stand forever and always
With the roses that are ever so red
As her hairs blows across her smooth face
Taking my hand running down her cheek
Pulling her close to me with a tight grip
One kiss on her soft pink juicy lips
I cant wait until this day comes and she hears a song
A song from the heart where she can sing it all day long
Staying in her mind until we get home
She will never have to worry about being alone
I will be by her side everyday and every night
Kyera don’t speak a word just kiss me
An make me the happiest man alive
I will always love you my future wife

Our Story

We have just got to the river
where none should shiver.
It is a battle for the strong
and knew not how young.
Just believe in yourself
and it will be easy to surf
on top of all the odds,
that leads you to be the boss.

We have just got to the river
and I smell success linger.
Our power becomes our wrong,
but as hopefuls we will never long
I see and hear your bluff
and I wonder if you are this tough
or it is a menace I can ignore.

Have we not crossed the river?
The question– we should ponder.
Our strength going beyond
with our weakness never ignored.
There is a secrete to be told
and a story to unfold.
Resilience was, is and will be our way forward!

Last Day

If you were told
You were to die today
What would you do?
For your last day?

Would you call your love ones?
Would you just reflect?
Did you give your life purpose?
Do you have any regrets?

Did you follow your dreams?
Did you treat people fair?
Did you do your best?
Did you handle things with care?

Do you thank God?
For being so blessed?
Did you handled well
When you were outguessed?

Are you afraid?
Afraid to die?
Do you know what lies?
Beyond the sky?

Did you tell your loved ones
How much they meant to you
Did you leave out any words?
Did you say Thank You!!

Did you smell all the roses?
Did you miss anything?
Is your heart at peace?
Is your conscience clean?

What would you do?
When it was your turn to die?
Do you call your friends?
And say Goodbye?

Do you look at the heavens?
Look God in the eye
Say,” I know your there “
Beyond the sky

Lord, it seems like a lot of work
I know you’ll greet me with a smile
But if you don’t mind, Lord
I like to stay here for a while

Amen!

Prayer

Beneath the drapery of heaven
I knelt down
In adoration, I spoke my heart plainly and hopeful
The words escaped my frost- bitten heart
Bitter-sweet memories and hurts of the past
I said a prayer for you
Lest you know not
For divine protection for today and forever more
Flashes of hatred and lightening of hurt ran across right in my head
Questions up-heaved like waves in the ocean
Uncontrolled tears and my broken bleeding heart
Despite all, I said a little prayer
Though you seem so distant, Oh Lord
Your angels stringed my prayer, bead by bead
And carried it up above
To the throne of the mighty one
To the one who holds eternity in His hands
Hope revived
My joy survived
As peace embedded my heart
I knew my prayer had been heard

I Got To Say..

I got to say I love you, but I don’t know how to show you
I never felt like this before with anyone
Never felt…
So alive, complete, happy, and in love
You make me feel special
The words you say are perfect
It’s like music to my ears
The way you hold me is loving
It’s like you will never let go
The way you kiss me
It’s like our lips are meant for each other
The way you look at me
It makes me feel that your eyes are only on me
Baby…
I’m falling deeply in love with you
You’re the one I want to spend the rest of my life with
You’re the one I cant stop thinking about
You’re the one I want to wake up to every morning
You’re the one I’m willing to give my life up for
Baby…
You are the love of my life
My one and only
