New Poem: Torn Past

Torn Past
I’ve had a long look at my past
Alone like a key in a lock
Without what it takes to turn open.

I gave you sorrow to hang on your wall
Like a painting in one color.
I wear a torn stain of red on my sleeve.

I shuffle among the lies
Turning them over, like pages of a magazine.
if only I could be sure what I’d lost.

I uncover my steps, I wish
Someone would open my eyes.
It could be all in the mind. Anyway
Nothing seems to bring you back to me.

When you are gone all but this moment,
Change is bleeding from me,
For speaking either truth or comfort
I have no more lies to give.

New Poem: Letting Go

Letting Go

It hurts so much to know,
When love means letting go.
And no one can tell me
That they’ve felt my pain.

Will someone show me how
To start over again?
Because I can’t get past you.
My head denies but my heart knows,
Your goodbyes will come.
I stare out into the empty sea,
I can feel your soft touch
In my empty hand.

Wake me,
Like the morning sunshine piercing my window.
Tell me I am not dreaming.
Turn back the clocks
When I first saw your smile,
And all that’s best of sparkling and bright.
When I gazed in your eyes:
to that tender light,
How heavenly it would be to see that again.

You glow in my heart
Like the flames of infinite candles.
There is no corner, no dark place,
Your warmth could not fill.
And if the world starts causing waves,
It was your devotion that made them still.

And yes you always speak to me,
In sweet honesty and truth.
Your caring heart kept out the rain,
Your warmth, the ultimate shelter.

Time can’t destroy its beauty
For, as long as your memory lives,
Years can’t erase the pleasure
That the joy of your friendship gives.
But, I don’t think I could survive
Looking into your eyes and saying goodbye.

New Poem “A Gift from Heaven”

A Gift from Heaven

With a blessing from God,
An angel sent to me from so far away.
To help me through all my woes,
With all struggles and wrongs,
In this world which we all know.
You, with all your sweetness,
Tenderly pierced the walls of my heart
As you wove a new tapestry of hope and affection in my soul.
Yesterday you offered me hope;
Today you endowed me with your strength.
Every moment, a gift.
A celebration of life.
How lovely the music of your heart.
You are the air I seek, sound I hear,
And the spirit that gently moves me.

New Poem “Summer Love”

Summer Love
The cherry tree blossoms with spring love,
The birds gather nesting material for their little ones,
With each blossom, my heart grows tender,
Every single bud, nurtures this love that ensue
Green, are the grasses that spread seeds of love from my heart
Blue, are the skies where no end shall impart.
Longer are the days that I wish to be seeing you, here
Shorter are the nights, I will be missing you, near
Above is the sun, that penetrates your fragrant hair
Ample like the moon, that caresses your features, so fair
In full bloom, love will display our feelings of truth
Everything I pray for has come true.
Don’t let your prayers to God be few,
Upon the green grass is dew,
Look around at the landscape of life,
And see the beauty of God’s creation.
His gentle touch is upon everything viewed,
And the reminder of how we too can be renewed.

 

New Poem “In my Eyes”

In my Eyes
In life, we search for the perfect art,
To anchor our overflowing heart.
We ask God to carve a path to bring us color and light.
With each footprint in the sand we make
We find our precious dose of sunshine to take.
You cross my mind,
You have a special place that I can only find.
No matter what treasure I seek
My heart for you, is full of feelings
More precious to me than gold,
With emotions strong as platinum,
And appreciation for you
Worth more to me than any treasure that I will ever hold.
Happy Valentine’s Day

New Poem “The Garden”

The Garden

Just when I believed I couldn’t ever blossom anymore,

A seed is planted in the secret garden of my soul.

Let the gentle caress of these hands give it all that it needs.

I will water it everyday with tears of joy and give it love to grow.

How do explain something that took me by surprise?

During the cloudy skies of my life I found a path of sunshine.

It gave me hope when all my hope was gone,

Set me free and let the spring colors shine through.

I know the treasure when I see your smile in the eyes of your child

If you are ever lonely or sad and blue, step into my secret garden where I wait for you.

Now I can rest my worries and always be sure

That my garden will blossom when I see you.

New Poem “Pumpkin Picking”

Pumpkin Picking

Let’s go pumpkin picking
In the fields where the cornstalks lie.
With the jiggle of the old gate latch
The gate begins to swings wide.
With fear in our eyes,
We step inside.

With the full moon that shines bright
In the creepy night sky,
We search for monsters that creep about.
Ghosts and goblins, vampires and mummies
Searching for goodies to fill their tummies tonight.

We gather up all our pumpkins,
On this Halloween night,
Frightened as could be,
With the sight and sounds.
We run back to the house
To carve out the scary pumpkin faces.
To place on our porch,
For all to see
This scary Halloween night.
