Getting The Words Right

Stumped
Can’t seem to think straight
Triumphed
“The Block’s” keeping me up late
Words tangled up
Mouth and brain can’t seem to function
Because when the words come out
It all looks like one swift motion
Choppy
Words diced up real short
Copy
Can’t make a sentence work
How to get the words out
That I mean to say
Even though I think them
Almost every single day
Heart
The words pound loudly in my chest
Start
Although I know you know me best
Listen to the music
Playing in my soul
Electrifying clarity
As I slowly lose control
The words that try to form
Around my tongue And through my lips
Zap and twirl and dance
Upon my happy kiss

Don’t!

Don’t!

Don’t challenge
and you won’t know

Don’t follow
and you won’t grow

Don’t plant your dream
and you won’t sow

Don’t try
and you won’t know,

Can’t see
so you don’t find

Can’t feel
so you don’t mind

Can’t hear so you
don’t bind

Can’t speak so
you don’t shine

Don’t!

My Heart

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Here’s my heart hold it tight
Just a reminder that I am
Head over heels falling for you

Never thought I’d be happy again
But you have proven that with you there’s a better part of me.
How can I show you that there is such a thing as happiness
And that to get it all you have to do is smile.
And maybe reading this will make get a little smile out of you
Know I am always thinking about you beautiful.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
While I’m here all I want is you

Love is my passion truth is my soul
You are my heart
Never a moment that’s close to dull
You’re my world my moon and my stars
Just like now you’re here but yet so far.

You are my thoughts every minute I think
Every night I miss you and want to kiss you
Hopefully one day I’ll take your hand and say “I do”

Dear Future

Dear Future
Brimming gold, raining honey
Like a sea, like a sea
Bringing bliss, embracing gains
Thus I wish
Thus I pray.

Every sucker I pray a valley
Every bee a pray a dodo
All I wish I pray to be;
Brimming gold, raining honey
Thus I wish
Thus I pray.

All I see I pray not to flee
Flee I pray one not to be
Lives I pray by me to be
What I pray I pray fast to be;
Brimming gold, raining honey
Thus I wish
Thus I pray.
Dear future,
Thus I pray you come;
Brimming gold, raining honey.

Eternal Paradise

A place of everlasting joy,
laughter and happiness
Peace indefinable
Where the enemy of man cannot intrude
A home where I can sleep without doors
Deep deep deep with my eyes tightly
closed
No worries but a peaceful mind
No fear because there is nothing to fear
Death has no power
Old things are past away
Mind, soul and body transformed
Renewed into a heavenly being
God and man reconcile
Living in harmony
Heaven is that home
Where my lord lives in glory
I’m honored to be his subject
At his feet shall I bow holding my
alabaster jar
My long awaited moment
To feel my lords feet
Pouring that gracious oil from my
alabaster
Heaven where my heart longs for
My eternal home
Beholding the sight of angels
Tall and short
Fat and thin
Black and white
All clothed in shining apparels and
singing in one accord
At last! a dream come true
Dining with the saints
Singing among the heavenly choristers
Hallelujah to my king .

U Turns

You scratch my back
And I scratch yours.
You share your piece of fame
And we make peace.
Winding through the corridors
Of winds of change
Swinging in, over the dunes
Of changing weather
We make a pact.
A pact of saccharine deceit.
We are the same
Your colour and mine
We match together.
We the ruler of this universe
We the believers of “U TURNS”

The End Of A Day

The tired and worn hours of the day tumble into the sunset as the turbulent waves crest upon the ebony hued rocks on the ocean’s shore. The sun dips softly, silently into the crimson horizon as terns and gulls forage frantically to savor the last of the tide’s tasty morsels before blackness covers the cooling sand.

The dark seashore with memories of the day falling over the cliff’s edge into the past, slumbers, and dreams of a sunny tomorrow when laughing children will once again visit and create new memories.

Change… creation… time: Like the ever-moving current of the vast ocean always receding and emerging, continually brings new possibilities to the shoreline and our weary minds.

The cooling sea with its white waves breathing into the night, roars at the pomegranate moon to tell the ocean’s angels to come ashore and bless the land. Far out in the vast black sea, the whales bellow to the stars to silence the moan of weary travelers.

Someone… move the world a bit slower so children can catch up with their dreams, and mothers can gather meaning from the hours of their tedious day in order to gain courage for the coming of another morn.
