Poetry

Breathe

Breathe into me,
The breath of life,
Once again, my love

For without you,
My soul has withered,
In the darkness,
Of my loneliness.

A Grandmother’s Poem

In just a short moment,
you became the softness
beneath my smile,

In just a short moment,
you became the twinkle
in my eyes,

In just a short moment,
you were my dreams
of the future,

The things we would do,
The things I would teach you,
The things you would teach me
In just a short moment we shared,
A lifetime of love,

And then you were gone,
To sleep with the angels.

Spoken Words

I shall speak softly
For my words may lie heavy
On the hearts of those
Who hear.

I shall speak truthfully
For my words may be chronicled
Through all eternity

I shall speak lovingly
For my words have no meaning
If spoken without heart

If I speak not softly
If I speak not truthfully
If I speak not lovingly
Let me not speak at all.

Tell Me A Secret

Tell me a secret
The one I see
In the shadows
Of your eyes
 
Speak to me with
Words of truth
Not the poetry
Of your lies
 
Tell me a secret
In the darkness
Of the night
 
And perhaps
My heart won’t break
If the secret
Doesn’t see the light

Tell me a secret

Morning Muses And Ramdon Thoughts

If the world needs no new heroes,
If there’s nothing new to discover,
If tomorrow is just,
A mirror image of today,
Then why am I here?

~~~~

Love shall lift me
On its wings
As truth clears the way
God has forgiven all my sins
as I knelt to pray
Forgive me Father, touch my hand
Dry my crying eyes
Love shall lift me on its wings
Love shall help me fly

~~~~

Be still my child
For I am near
My love shall set you free
Be still my child
For I am light
The darkness is not in me
Be still my child
