Sometimes I Let It Go

Sometimes I let it go
Sometimes I don’t give it a second thought.

Sometimes I wonder what happened?
What changed your mind and erased your loving heart?

Once I was all you knew
No one else you gave a second thought.

Now indifference clouds the view
Sarcasm is the voice heard a lot
No more gentle caress, no more loving thoughts.

Didn’t happen over night
It seeped in thru empty, shallow thoughts
Taking a awful tole on our gentle, loving hearts.

Sometime turn around look back down your path
See me standing all alone, looking back.

Loving as much as I did then
In the gentle, loving days
Before the empty, shallow thoughts.

Clouds Part, Sun Rises

Clouds part, sun rises
Filling all hearts
With peace
Warmth and gratitude.

Joy comes to mind
As day winds down
Folding into night
Star studded.

Holding tight
Precious souls
In their solitary walk
Through life.

I Wonder What

I wonder what
I will say
What I’ll see
In the morning
Just before me.

No breath is taken
Holding on
Moving forward
Knowing I have
Heaven and earth
Backing me.

I Feel

I feel
My hunger thirst
For a heart
That knows no bounds
See a stranger and know
That I am that one
May the world
In all it’s whole
Be a wondrous
Place to live.

I feel
I feel I need this.

All will come to an end
All the steel girders will bend
Every season will thrive and die
The answers you sought will make you cry
The happiness foretold you won’t deny
All will be all you have

I’m Not Sure

March 15, 2018

I’m not sure what I’ll write
Something about yesterday
Maybe something
That will occur tonight.

No rules in place
No sayings to follow
Just hear that soft voice speak
And my writing, my words
They follow.

Let Me Hear

Let me hear
My silent soul speak.

 Let me hear
Her words of wisdom

That I alone can teach.
