Set Aside

Who am I now this lonely man bent to the point of break,

willing to share his soul, yet existing in such loneliness, for none are found who would receive it?

Set aside for the busier matters of others live’s,

I struggle in my search for that quiet reassurance I once knew in the reassuring arms of my love,

knowing I belonged amongst shared dreams and purpose.”

Memories

Memories

 

 

 

In that moment when I felt your heart,

gently dancing with my soul.

 

I knew in that one moment,

that you had me true to whole.

 

Each tiny sparkling moment,

sweet memories of you.

 

Fills my heart with contentment, 

for someone my heart just knew.

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.

Easter to Enjoy

Easter To Enjoy

Jesus came to earth,
to show us how to live.

How to put others first,
how to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
that God sent Him to do.

He took our punishment on Himself,
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
calling Angels from above.

But He chose to pay our price for sin,
He paid it out of love.

Our Lord died on Good Friday,
but the cross did not destroy.

His resurrection on Easter morn,
that fills our hearts with joy.

Now we know our earthly death,
like His, is just a rest.

We’ll be forever with Him,
in Heaven, where life is best.

So we live our lives for Jesus,
think of Him in all we do.

Thank you Savior,
thank you Lord,
help us love like You.

Contentment

Contentment

Your embrace is filled
with sweetness.

Desires beneath they glow.

Delicious warm contentment,
the love that we both well know.

Your heartbeat feels like heaven,
a throbbing soft repose.

These feeling’s deep inside me,
continue’s everyday to grow.

Our souls unite in harmony,
our bodies joined as one.

The love I feel inside me,
is like holding heavens sun.

Children

​Children


You came here children to save a marriage, 

that couldn’t be saved. 


You were delivered with all the hope, 

humanity can bring to a new day. 


You came and life was better, 

the childrens faces answered so many questions. 


You came expecting nothing, 

deserving the chances only we can give. 


You came, we failed! 


Now we must all see about tomorrow.

Every Day A Harvest

Every Day A Harvest

Every day a harvest,

every man, every woman, every child.

Looking back harvesting,

the trail of daylight for laughter,

brought from life.

The successes,

bring you joy,

happiness.

Stay away from the corners of despair,

for sometimes they can shame you.

The disappointments,

for they may only burden you.

Every day a harvest,

every man, every woman, every child.

His Heavenly Land

His Heavenly Land

For human was born unto this world,

as He so chose to be.

This God of ours, now Jesus Christ,

is great Blessed love to see.

We build our homes and decorate too,

for us all to be.

The very ground you sit upon,

belongs to Him, not you or me.

As the wind blows softly,

through the leaves of trees.

The flower’s dance

mirthful in their beds.

The harvest of the field grow by day,

while the wind blows through their pads.

Seeing the harmony of the nature grows,

Mother land plays in this part.

Thus we see that God had made,

this great world we live apart.

Embraced

​Embraced

Excerpt

My late wife and I were having some trouble and were not embraced at this time of our sorrows. It troubled me so badly, I started losing sleep over it. Upon writing this poem we worked through our troubles as we always have to a degree. I loved her so and miss her even more. 

My wife,

Shannon Darnell

May you R.I.P

Rest in peace Shannon, I love and miss you very very much, until we meet again.

 

Embraced

As we lay next to each other, 

not embraced, 

it breaks my heart. 

 

We wake each morning day, 

holding one another, 

but still never embraced. 

 

It tears at my being, 

that I long to be with you. 

 

As my heart yearns and longs, 

to touch your heart, 

to caress your mind, 

and to embrace your soul. 

 

It’s endless as to the touch of a flower. 

 

I have searched the highs and lows, 

the mountain’s to the sea’s, 

and the sea’s to the heaven’s above. 

 

And now the embraceable has been found, 

in a yearning heart like mine. 

 

For the beauty that she shows,

the love that she shares, 

is far beyond anything I have dreamed of. 

 

To this, I thank you, 

for the embrace that you have given to me,

that I have only dreamed of to be.

Dear Love, I Would

​Dear Love, I Would 



Your lips would make for a gentle kiss. 

Your arms would make for a perfect hug. 

Your hand would make a perfect fit for mine. 

You’re the one I would love having beside me. 

You’re the one I would want to share my heart and life with now. 

I wish I knew what I did to deserve you showing up?


Because, I would do it again!

Always And Forever

​Always And Forever


John and Donna Hazalet

May you R.I.P.


I am are your lion, 

you are my lamb. 


A song bird singing, 

for this was the plan. 


Always and forever, 

I just want you to know. 


I will always be here for you, 

no matter where I go! 


You can travel by the sea, 

you can travel in the air. 


By camel across the desert, 

I will always be there! 


Your knowledge astounds me, 

I’m desperate to learn. 


Take me to your places, 

this time it’s your turn. 


I will support your dreams and wishes, 

yellow roses helped them to come true. 


I have sealed it with 4 kisses, 

just to be with you. 


I want you to know that I love you, 

you are forever in my heart. 


You’ve blessed my life with so much pleasure, 

without you, I’d fall apart.
