The Boat of Life

Sometimes it’s fun

sometimes it’s bad

you just have to hang on

while it steadies

safe and sound

 

Rocking back and forth

going forward and backward

you never know where to go

will the destination be good?

 

Holding on for dear life

all you can do is pray

as you are whisked

to places unknown

with only an oar

for a guide

 

A hole might appear

putting an end to your plans,

take heed! Be cautious,

be prepared

 

Wherever it takes you

heave a sigh, let go

you’ve no control

only an idea

have faith

let that be enough

let hope be fruitful

My Loves

heart

Whenever you smile

whenever you laugh

my life is worthwhile

my life becomes complete

 

My two greatest blessings

my two greatest loves,

you fill my heart with joy

my world is full

 

Together you are perfect,

together I overflow

I pray to God

this never shatters,

my wonderful world filled with

toddler shrieks

and daddy talks.

Black and White

black-and-white

She walks

in darkness

born of

blight and strife

the shadows

is her home

 

She strikes

at the hearts

victims unknown

million lay dying

in a wasteland

of gloom

 

Hark! The angel appears

he who is

light and bright

shining the way

to salvation

leading the way

to peace

 

She moves forward

he counters back

light and dark

where to begin

light and dark

where will it end?

As One

She walks in shadows

he in light

forever they are entwined

never knowing though

each one exists

 

He longs for her

she reaches out to him

their hands never touching

bodies ever apart

 

Night and day

always apart

but

continually working together

as people should.

Memories

Her mind wanders

against

misty waterfalls

tranquil waters

the tips of her fingers

lightly

touch the grass

as thoughts

descend upon her

like wispy clouds

on turquoise skies

she sighs deeply,

contentedly

what was

was a lesson,

both

a joy and a pain

what was

was a gift

that led her

to

today’s dream.

If Only

I close my eyes

rainbows and

fairies I see

imagine what

the world will be

if

hate and prejudice would cease

if everyone

will

make-up and kiss

and

understanding will flow,

tolerance will be everywhere.

I close my eyes

flowers and

meadows I see

imagine what

the world will be

if

racism and pride doesn’t exist

if everyone

will

hug and hold hands

and love will flow,

hope will abound.
