My Reason

Tiny tingles,

At the heart.

Tumbling smooth,

Edges that dart.

Beginnings of smiles,

Owned since birth.

Knowing you,

My reason of mirth.

To be so happy,

Something so plain,

Finding connection

Fusing twain.

Excitement building,

You are the one.

Belief in hope,

Father of the sun.

For years it’s bloomed,

Without you near.

Growing stronger,

My love reveres.

Candied heart

Buy me fun candy.

With secrets,

That only you can see.

 

Fill my belly with butterflies,

Who wink lullabies.

That exist for you and me.

 

Place forgotten memory:

Lovely seconds,

On shelves of pure gold

 

Forever to touch

My hand and heart,

My love is yours to enfold.

Forget Me Not

In darken corners

Of bruised hearts

The Forget Me Not

Will sometimes mark

Graves of scars

In velvet cloak

Tattered by tears

From empty yoke

Fragile stems

Gone to seed

In lovers gardens

An unkempt weed

Overgrown

With wistful longing

The Forget Me Not

Blooms hope prolonging

Tender petals

In pale pastels

Enduring love

That never fails

Faithful flower

Bouquet of blossom

Inside my heart

You are never forgotten

Sacrifice

 

They come arching across night skies

With their trails of glitter

Following behind

And under breath

They whistle our love song sweet

 

They take cue

So we might dance

On their borrowed time

And dream

Of arms meant to hold us

And of hearts meant to beat

Butterflies

 

They do it all for our love

 

Delighted they grin at me

And wink in merry mischief

 

And I comprehend

In those silent gazes

While throwing wishes

The stars are in sparkle

For us they die

And happily fall from the sky

To give me a chance

Of dreams that come true

They unselfishly give their lives

All just so I can wish for you

Seminole Moon

Ol’ gypsy moon

Mother of the Seminole

Find my lost lover

Rescue my weary soul

Fill me with calming peace

Heal me from the hate

Give my lover courage

Let your glow illuminate

Two lives separated

But connected by your tide

Hear my pleading prayer, ol’ moon

Bring me back to life

Pull his heart closer

Remind him of my love

Give him my many kisses

Blown to you up above

Ol’ gypsy moon

Send my lover back my way

My only wish tonight

Is bring him back to stay

Ol’ gypsy moon

Wipe my tears away

Reunite what’s been lost

I can’t live without him another day.

Lights Promise

Somehow finding myself colored in lights

From still holding onto your love, set inside me so tight

More intense faith than I have ever experienced

Someone greater than any cause, but in the dark mysterious

Letting go is not an option possible

Odds of failure click off astronomical

Thoughts bring you complete, happily forefront

Truth spoken, but tough softness is blunt

Everyday now I’m unable to surpress

Or my emotions even allowed respite, or  be repressed

Comfort happens and finds me to thrive

Still you linger here, only the physical deprived

With you here talking to me through so many signs

It proves my truth of enlightenment, and secures belief sublime

The bond that was sewn to connect us through the spaces between

Will withstand times hurts of separation, and will be my reprieve

I know I will hold your face gently in my hands

Patience and growth must happen first,  so we can start to understand

Compass

Cats bark secrets

At hidden new moons

Bringing back memories

Always gone too soon

Senior’s first word

Beginning at the end

Hangs white poignant stars

To midnight’s curtains thinned

Unicorn knelling loudly

In prayer, just out of sight

Guarding suns treasured magic

For dreams to take flight

The world keeps spinning dizzy

Turning my square chaos around

Searching for you, comes empty

My heart pleads to be found

But still, I hear your voice

Compass, introduced at our birth

Anchoring connate knowledge

You….

are my true magnetic north

 

~m

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Can Still

After all this time,

It is in the highest

Respect of regards

That I can still

Wonder at

Your fragile

Human beauty

And shield it

Protectively within

My wounded

But forever hopeful

heart.

 

It is there,

That I can still,

Remember

And

Wait for you.

Shell

 

Filled wherein

Of haunted whispers

Of crashing waves

Shell twisting

Tight swirls

Housing emotions

Of churning memories

Losing me at sea…

Of tan lined love

And

Of belonging only to you.

 

I sit sunbathe

Tumbled worn smooth

Now on distant sandy shores.

In salty stillnesses

Remaining in your wake.

Wistfully thrown aside

In glass

Corked tight

Into the turbulent,

Surf of life.

 

Alone.

 

A vacant shell.

 

Waiting to be collected.

Near

You came to me

In a dream-

As you always do.

Time had passed

And I had mourned-

Believing you had flew.

I was startled

Emotions gashed-

A bleeding heart, still in love.

You held my face

Between your hands-

Granting stillness I had never dreamed of.

You kissed my lips

Trembled remembrance of home-

Joy blooming as spring gardens.

It wasn’t my intuition,

That quaked my head-

It was your apology for our parting.

Your reach for reassurance,

Sincerity crystal clear-

Calming both our blazon fears.

Before I woke,

These words I spoke-

For you my love, I will always be near.

 

You faded regretfully,

As the sun came up-

Cloudless skies likened to your eyes, azure.

In farewell you kissed my heart,

With tender care-

Including a promise made of future.
