Verdad

Verdad

Love means saying no
Turning away
So the tears don’t show
Walking away
With your head held high
Heart breaking
Knowing it’s for the best
Not for you
But for your beloved
For without you
They will soar to new heights
With you
All they will have
Is you
And you are not enough
For anyone

To the Father of My future Children…

To the Father of My future Children…

Since I know you don’t exist
Can I compliment your hair?
Can I say your eyes are beautiful?
Or that they sparkle in the sun?
I feel I know your laughter
The way it touches my soul
When the wind blows a certain way
It feels like your breath on my neck
And since it doesn’t matter
I’ll say I love your lips
The way they touch mine gently
Then whisper I love you
Often

Sonnet #222

Sonnet  #222

Our time is fast at hand
We must approach with care
The time we have to share
When we’ll walk hand in hand
Along the golden sand
We’ll make a lovely pair
Of only life were fair
But things don’t go as planned
Restraint must rule the day
We find our center space
To wait and rule our souls
We keep our love at bay
Till in the proper place
Till then pain takes its toll

New Endings

New Endings

The lover’s quarrel is amended
Think not that this tale is ended
For unless a parting follows
Love in heartache and bitterness wallows
If only goodness lit the day
We know not night to keep it at bay
And without the loss and touch of pain
We wouldn’t know what we have gained

Vows

Vows

We all need love
We live by Honor
We strive to obey

But we struggle to obey
We fail because we love
It stains our honor

How can we understand honor?
When we only try to obey?
The struggle comes from trying to love

Because with Love, we choose to honor and obey

Entrapped

A wild wind whispers through the trees
It murmurs your name silently
Time is waiting on a half thought prayer
All of creation is full of anticipation
Your name is spoken
Time stops
The world starts spinning again
Only to come crashing
When your lips meet mine
Pleading, pulling my breath from my body
Slowly I surrender
Yours
Completely

C=T+t(The Allen Equation)

C=T+t(The Allen Equation)

Lay your burdens down beside me
They’re too much for one to bear
We could sustain the weight of the world
If only you would share
The rain keeps falling sideways
Music all sounds flat
You’ve kept patient under pressure
No one finds fault with that
But the time has come for reckoning
To wash the sin away
One day you’ll look back fondly
Laughing the tears away
