Today, Lost Alone

Posted on

The agony consumes me, too much pain,
Must hide my light within out of sight,
So frighten of being discovered now,
An outside world of darkest oppression,
I flee from their “light is a threat” mentality,
Avoiding being corrupted, loosing myself,
I must be true to myself, hold to my morality,
Sadly, I travel a lonely path, in pain, despair,
I’m lost in a nightmare, the uncaring now rule,
A ‘leadership’ based on ego, power and control,
My small voice a chiding threat to them, squelched,
Their fear presides over our lives, all ghettos,
I once had visions of unity, a family in unity,
All lost now to the darkest of realities, truths,
Fear and disillusionment is their ‘God’, their faith,
Oh to have some hope again, to see the sun rise,



False Happiness

Posted on

I lie, I plant a smile on my face,
No-one can know, I must hide it,
It’s so hard to keep it covered, up,

I hurt so much holding it in,
If only I had someone, anyone,
Just to listen, to hear, to understand,
To be able to tell them, share with them,

Oh how I know it would really help,
But I have no-one, I’m left all alone,
Not a soul cares, none reaching out,
The lack a friend brings even more pain,

If only, if only, someone, please, help,
I once had dreams, now all lost to the pain,
I saw better things, happy times, love,
All hope now lost, so I hide, dead inside.


Life Ebbs

Posted on

Much as an old clock slowing, winding down for the last time,
Spring broken, winder lost, is it two o’clock now or five?
Monday, Saturday, or perhaps a lost day already gone by,
I can’t tell any more, seems all my caring has gone for good,
I have fallen through too many years, I fear never to come back,
The hands of time have  kept turning, but I am stuck right here,
Can there be anything to help me find myself, make it as it was,
Back before age overrun me, overtook my youthful free being,
In misty cobwebbed memories, an ever dimming view of what I was,
Is it too late, it seems over before it began, so tired, so lost, so ended,
The fates lay on their cold dry hands, pulling at my soul. dragging,
I slow, all resistance failing, to battle on is a meaningless exercise,
Wandering around in a dazed confusion, helpless, need to start over,
Sands of time running out weakly, a muddled riot of unfulfilled dreams,
Completely befuddled, visions come, sight clears, something new,
Stepping outside of time, I see again the wondrous vision of the tree of life,
Limbs showing futures yet to come, new paths going forward, beginnings,
Even as I watch I see the newest of life budding forth as new leaves,
Old leaves in death falling back to the source of sustenance, the start of all,
The dense haze returns yet cannot hide this, the brightest yet of my visions,
No longer do I feel the need to look for answers, no rhymes or riddles dire,
Time is now meaningless, I cannot remember why it ever had importance,
Tis’ the late fall of my journey, with summer at an end, winter nigh,
I now have peace, for I feel the contentment to come, the harmony, the love,
I rejoice in my soon coming reunion with those so missed, to be joined again,
For now, I know I am but one of the falling leaves from the great tree,
I’m going back to my home, young once more, my newest path before me,
I am content and happy, looking forward to all my new tomorrows,



Home At Last

Posted on
I crave the silent coming peace, the glittering ring of a water fall,
The gentle whisper of a last autumn leaf as it floats down to rest,
I move steadily towards the final place of balance, toward my destiny,
Kindly embraced, welcomed, loved, returned to my home at last…



Hear the Silent Steps

Posted on

He comes, with soft gentle steps, slipping through the shadows,
Each and every cherished second, every moment, and every day,
Throughout the nights he comes to guard over you, his one love,
Listen to the silent whispers drifting on the winds blowing gentle,

Many a song he sung for you, all for the love of his giving soul,
Yet none of the notes rang clear enough to ring out his true care,
You find him wafting and dancing between the trees in sunny April,
Spreading fragrant new flowers to brighten and bless his love’s path,
In the rainy gloom of July nights stopping the thunder to bring dawn,
Riding on chariots of wandering clouds he comes, comes ever more,
But he’s gone you say, I’m alone, only pain presses upon my heart,
And now you know he is never far, never out of reach, you are not alone,

And know too, it is for a glimpse of your golden smile that gives him joy,


Last Sonnet

Posted on

When I die, I want your hands in mine,
I desire the caress of your beloved hands,
One last moment sharing the love of my soul,
I need to feel the softness that changed my life,

I want you to truly live while I await you in the dream,
I want your ears to hear whispers of the wind,
To walk the seashore in the sands we loved together,
To continue to bask in the beauty that we shared,

I want what I love to continue to live in the magic,
For it is you whom I love and sang above all else,
Continue to flourish, full-flowered, fully embraced,

Teach the world everything sharing my love has given,
Let my shadow travel along in strands your flowing hair,
Let all truly know learn the reason for my happiness and song,


You Are My Love

Posted on

My joy, need, hunger,
Seeking shelter, friendships

And oh, such friends, such love,
This the food for majestic Journey,

ere I near my journey’s end I fear,

You are my breath, my beating heart,
You give me hope dear companion,
You fulfill my cravings, necessities,
My abundant pleasures throughout life,
Without you, no life, no joy, no love,

Never to have wandered these endless years,
You brought out so much grace from me,
So many favors, given me so many gifts,
Everywhere I look, there I find your love,
When suddenly you drift by, I fill with it,

O Captain of my Heart, dance with me,
Radiant eye of yearning here in my breast,
I can never move far from your blessings
Know for as long as this journey may last,
I pray you to be satisfied with me, in love,

And know I am satisfied, content, and happy,
