Near

Near

Excerpt

A night walk with an interest in a conversation, good wine with great friends enjoying life’s journey. 

 

 

How glad I am, 

to feel you near.

 

To have you as a friend,  

of common interest in mind.

 

To open up my heart to uncertainty,

 not too afraid for someone to see,

or too displeased to care. 

 

But one who peers with interest, 

rapt into the center of my soul. 

 

How pleasant here to feel your voice

role over me like the sea.

 

Light and fresh,

as a summer eve.

 

Whose thoughts draw

my anxious mind,

like a rainbow in the sky. 

 

Oh, the joy earned,

to gaze into a mind so pure.

 

A model of the ways, 

next to me as in life. 

 

Or just to rest in silence, 

savoring the tender tie. 

 

Oh to sit so close to a friend,

who knows all my faults.

 

And chooses still my side,

as a  true friend that listens

with their hearts.

 

Now to share that clean

unselfish flame,

of nearer inner bonds.

 

The soft aura rapt,

watching the evening’s sun.

The Still Voice

The Still Voice

Depth’s of His heart,
loves all people for
who they are.

The Still Voice talks,
but who is listening.

He weeps with sorrow,
because His children’s
gone astray.

The Still Voice talks,
but who is listening.

He talks once again,
to be astrayed to His land.

The still Voice talks,
but who is listening.

One said: I heard You talk to thee,
the love pours about.

The still Voice talks,
hence,
someone….. was…. listening….

Let Me

Let Me

Let me love you,
in all it’s form.

Let my heartbeat,
keep you safe and warm.

Let me be your,
forever and a day.

My life begins through,
everything you say.

Trust my soul as it
dries your tear.

I promise my love
I will always be here.

For one look- ~
For one smile ~-

Will say more than,
all words combined.

My soul was meant
to find you.

Here hold my hand,
I’ll show you how I feel.

Showering you with love happiness,
nobody can steal.

Let me fill you with my spirit,
no love can hide.

I’ll give you everything,
my hearts got inside.

You’ll never be,
unhappy in my arms.

You’re in my eyes ~
look and realize ~

I’d rather have you
without a future,
than a future without you.

Love is all I got ~
Love is so real ~

Desires Within Me

Desires Within Me

There are no regrets without you,
without us; for today never ends.

There are no tomorrow’s without you,
just ends left untied.

There are no boundaries to seek,
just love to be shared with each other.

There are no lies to hide,
only questions unasked.

There are no secrets to hide,
only sincerities from our heart’s.

Inspiration of Love

Inspiration of Love

R.I.P. Shannon Darnell

In the moment that I saw you,
somehow my heart just knew.

That I would have some kind of life,
filled with loving you.

In the moment that you touched me,
as you pulled me to your side.

Your arm slipped down around my shoulder,
my heart no place to hide.

In the moment that I touched you,
I felt your heartbeat beneath my hand.

The look I saw there in your eyes,
spoke a language I did understand.

The moment that you held me,
is somehow frozen in time.

A place of sweet contentment,
engraved is this heart of mine.

In that moment when I felt your heart,
gently dancing with my soul.

The things that it did to me,
had me love you true to whole.
