Always With You

I was there for your every moment in life
from conception and to this day
through all your accomplishments, small or great

The many hurts and every phase
you made me laugh, cry and
humbled my heart at times

I let you do what you wanted
I even warned you at times
but would not, for you, make up your mind

Your free will, is your learning experiences
but the outcome, public or not, I never missed

I will always be there, no matter where you are
my love for you is never too far

I know that one day, you will come home
until then, I lovingly watch you, from here on my throne


Emotional Stages…

Struggle – The opportunity to get it right the next time

Worry – A wasted emotion & energy that will make you age early

Hurting – The path to a river of tears to purify the soul

Pain – The epitome of future strength, when you let it go

Release – The soul letting go of past suffering to freedom

Lessons – Once learned, are the forks in the road to tempt you again

Peace – The maturing wisdom that you had to learn to embrace

Spiritual – When all the above have filtered down to internal awareness and a better understanding of life

Bliss – A gift that exudes wisdom & balance when true awareness has been revealed


I Surrender…

During my darkest times and profound fears
in my mind feeling alone in my many tears
giving birth to an unwanted trial, it’s been such a long time
since I’ve had to endure the deepest pain of this kind

This time I know, not to fight-but surrender
You take hold of the struggle, You are the avenger
I don’t have to be weak, You are my only plan
sending legions of angels, my spiritual life in your hands

While letting go, of my prideful ego
the internal struggle, releasing my evil
God taking on my calamity, as I choose not to fight
with my heart I surrender, to your power tonight

With faith lifting my hands up in praise, as you take this burden away

I surrender, and give it to you…

No Need to Be Perfect

Don’t use a fake line
just to connect with me
I find it mature, if you approach with more dignity
a simple “hi” and then your name
is more appealing than those old games

And if you are shy, that’s even cuter
I don’t have a “pass the test” meter

Just be yourself, no need to be perfect
let me see who you are
I hope for a man with respect
if we get along, just from this moment
we will meet again, and let the friendship be open

Maybe with time, we both can decide
if we should continue, or we should cut ties
sometimes relationships lead to great friends
and if that’s the case, I’ll be glad we began





Yesterday I sat on the balcony
I silently asked God for a sign
it was somewhat specific-a bird I wanted to see
on the railing to let me know that we were aligned

Within 20 minutes, a black & white woodpecker
landed on the top of the vertical strip of the railing
it was so close, I was in awe
since the balcony is, truly quite small

Then came the humor…
That beautiful bird, that I never had seen
slid down the railing, to the end just for me
before it took off, as still as I was
I had a huge smile—love sent from above


I Can’t Fall In Love Again…

A wonderful emotion creeping into my being
in a state of delusion, and my mind blindly leading
yearning for a form of contact to brighten my day
yet a not too distant reminder, it may not always be this way

I can’t fall in love again, we are better off friends
the oh-so-common future, may hold lack of respect
eventually fighting and hate there could be
if one day the illusion reveals the true person from what I see

In this case, I sacrifice my feelings
in hopes to remain your confidant
always looking forward to the few calls, or gatherings
where we have good times with all of the friends

My instinct warning me to closely listen
with friendship respect, I look forward to our meeting again


Better Alone…

Why am I with you, but feel so alone
when you walk in the door, is the feeling so strong
that’s when I have to face, our reality
if things don’t change, you need you to leave

How do I know this? When you’re gone I’m at peace
no worries of fighting, my love has decreased
so much mental abuse, I’m better off on my own
can’t you tell by my strength, how much I have grown

We used to be happy, together were free
but due to your pride, we may longer be
