Yesterday’s Promise

I will

wait for you

down

by the mango tree

because

you promised,

you crossed your heart

so I sat

by the stump

next

to the mango tree.

 

Rain poured,

the sun

shined

still

I stayed,

still

I sat

because

I held on

to

the promise

that was made

down by

the

mango tree.

Faith

They walk in fire

confidently, assuredly

head held high

arms outstretched;

longing for something

that can’t be seen,

longing for something that can’t be felt.

 

They walk on water

no hesitations,

no doubts;

looking

as far as the eye can see

seeing

what is not there,

seeing

what is hidden.

 

They know it will be theirs;

they know patience,

they know trust

yearning, longing

yet waiting

always waiting.

 

It will come, that they know

it will arrive, that they are sure,

time is their friend

their comfort through it all.

Love is…

Hearts

Love is kind

it is never mean.

Love is unconditional,

as deep as a well.

Love is patient,

it waits in the wings.

Love is thoughtful,

it is never just “I”.

 

Love is and what will be;

Love will always be around.

Have faith, stand tall

never give up

for love will always be there.

 

You may seem defeated

You may seem depressed

but

Love in all its forms

will always lift you up;

just open your heart

and keep your eyes peeled,

Love is always around the bend!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!!

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.
