Spirit of Love

The Christmas spirit
stolen from some
or in reality, was it given up

A surrendering attitude
for a past love, that is gone
and they’ve taken with them
the part of the spirit, that releases your love

Tapping the heart
as that verse was read
a justified anger, enters your head
a deafening call, that no one can hear
an outcry to the soul, and then you declare

“What have I done, how could it be
I lost the most precious gift, inside of me”
and within that moment, there is a change
your spirit complete, you’re no longer estranged

Able to love, and be loved again
your life begins, to feel so refreshed
and while addressing a spiritual need
you have found, your internal peace

The day my spirit leaves me
I want everyone to celebrate, and not cry
play my favorite music, and do plenty of dancing
remembering me by not crying, but laughing

As my father had said to us once, dance at the end
and cry at the beginning, is how life should be
for all of the suffering that’s in between
and when your life is all done, you would have learned
your outcome in life, is how well you discern…

Christmas Love

The cold is getting bitter
the leaves are now all gone
the gloominess the clouds dispense
the sun seems almost lost

But there is something magical
for weeks, it fills the air
the people change and rearrange
their love is everywhere

It’s not all about the presents
nor the pretty decorations
It’s putting down, the pride for now
while celebrating the generations

If you take away the presents
the trees and all the lights
the beauty of, the Christmas love
is all I want for life…



Just Because

Can you take time off just for me
embrace me like tomorrow will cease
slow dance with me, until we reach the moon
as we both float off, in a hot air balloon

Can we snuggle and watch the stars through the skylight
making me yours until morning’s sunrise
I’m not asking much, as I never do
fulfill my needs, and it benefits you

Just because, is a wonderful way
to express your love and in my heart, it’s engraved
letting me know how much you care
as I respond to your enticing flair…

Poetic Pain

Reading a post, my heart took a tumble
why such a connection, to your heart’s reflection

Wisdom teaching, from the very beginning
difficult times, lead to our lessons in life
the big picture unknown, but please don’t worry
the beauty in art, is not in a hurry

The perils are there, to reflect and adjust
the negative concept, is only in trust
for you have the power, to alter with courage
releasing to pen, what you consider disparage

To your surprise, many resonate
with your emotional artwork
that you so poetically state

Oh yes, it’s that yummy time of year
where the family gathers
and love’s in the air

The smell of the turkey and those tempting pies
the flaky bread baking, that will satisfy
some families flying, just to be home
for the family gathering, that brings them so close

The food and drink, that brings them together
the backed-up roads, and questionable weather
giving of thanks, one-by-one at the table
a prayer of hope, for those that aren’t able
the voices of children, playing after eating
brings joy to the heart, of this family gathering

Time to relax, and let the food digest
to make room, for those tasty desserts
in the meantime, why not play a game
or watch those that nap, overeating—no shame

The parade in the day, and all the football events
then starts the shopping, for the Christmas presents



Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving to all!
