My Heart Aches

My Heart Aches

My heart aches
my soul cries 
for a time
of clear innocence 
a time that time
has taken 
to the past 

No more to feel 
to bask
in rays of light
hearted laughs 

Sadness overwhelms 
seems to last 
til no more tears left 
to sob
crying for the now
distance past.

The Heart Is Torn

The heart is torn 
The soul cries 
Tears rain down 
Sadden eyes. 

No more is known 
None do care 
All alone 
Filled with despair.

My heart aches, my soul cries 
For the loves  
I’ve lost
Live no more. 

The time came they must depart 
Leaving anguish
In my broken heart. 

Someday I know I’ll see again 
Those I loved
I lost 
They’ll be with me forever
Forever once again.

I Have Not Seen Anything

I have not seen anything
I’ve looked and looked
But nothing, nothing.

My soul cries
Hoping to hear a answer
A answer for all these tears.

My feet do walk the world over
Treading, walking
Walking to find sacred ground

Where I can lie
Lie next to things that happened
Long ago, so profound.

Is this my journey’s life
A life lived seeking answers
Where answers are not to be found.

I hope, hope this is not
What will be
Will come to be around.

Swirling, Whirling Round

Swirling, whirling round
What is right, what is wrong?

My heart doesn’t know
My mind denies
My breath gasps in
My soul cries.

I wander
Taking in, looking out
What is this all about?

When I See Delight

When I see delight in your eyes
A smile fades and my soul cries.

No longer am I the one to bring pleasure
Or shine like the sun in your realm, in your life
No longer am I.

No longer am I
The one bringing delight to your eyes
A smile fades, my soul cries.
