Where can I go?

What can I do?

Where is my haven I cried?

Who stands by me?

Will my spirit be free?

Why ever once denied?

How long the pain?

When will stop heartache’s reign?

My yearning to never defeat?

Where tomorrow may end?

Will torment amend?

What loves long-lasting will I meet?

But knowledge the tool,

Seldom used by the fool,

Will ever protect the wise.

With love’s power replete,

The challenge to meet,

Our future together will rise.

Emergence

At winter’s end, comes awakening call,

Arise, arise, friends and all.

Tis time to stir, to shake out mist,

Your faces blurred from season’s kiss.

Reach out your arms, to grasp the light,

Your bodies to strengthen, renew their might.

Let hands present, your fingers splay,

Stand tall, in splendor to salute the day.

Your arrival conceived, rebirth in mind,

First of season, your status defined.

With grace and poise, aligned at will

Emerge to us, treasured Daffodil.

You Never Said I Love You


When first we met, you smiled,

Meaning transparent, sincere.

No spoken word was shared,

            Yet missive loud and clear.

The pain that once possessed you,

            Now gone, your heart is free.

Strength became your lover,

            Wisdom your soul’s key.

Today we stand together,

            As one we do unite,

Facing our new tomorrow,

            We walk in greater light.

Let those who would assail us,

           Their poisons once to spread,

Confront their own illusions,

            Confined within their dread.

With no impure thoughts to impede us,

   Choices our only guide,

Love must be our power,

   Hatred never to abide.

For our love of one another,

Warmly, as we nourish,

Will one day rise above,       

            Our spirits ever flourish.      

Your love my inspiration,

            Our power beyond compare,

Bonds of devotion strengthened,

Hearts eternally care.

What voice may raise in protest,

            What words beset our day?

You never said I love you,

Yet proved it in every way!

Love of Self

You struggle to accept,

            That which you cannot see.

You deny a real essence,

            Unique to you and to me.

You say you know me well,

            But fail to realize,

You know only your vision,

            It is you to recognize.

You refuse to accept life’s burdens,

            Those we all must face.

You reject the simplest facts,

            To continue to self abase.

You must know yourself, my friend,

            Your spirit in decline.

You must defeat your poverty,

            For the pure love of self, is divine.

Taste at Sunset


Sunset nigh, a time to reflect.

Memories abound, an orphan tear.

What souls well met, did hearts conspire,

To seek love, bereft of fear.

Alone you sit, your scent transcends,

Lingering taste, of kiss sublime.

Supple lips, an accord of desire,

Hearts entwine, to last for all time.

With thoughts empowered, no folly be known,

Our bodies tremble neath setting sun.

The universe ablaze, each breath a prayer,

Enjoined in love, we unite as one.

To Deke 04/10/19

You came into my life, shy and reserved,

A youth in your years,

Elder in your tears.

You walked fate’s road, struggles were many,

With strength of spirit and innocence of mind,

You faced each battle, but courage declined.

Now faced with new future, fresh tension arises,

Choices to make, decisions now worsen,

What do you do, who to trust, life so uncertain,

Alone in your thoughts, held close by concerns,

You seek perfect answers, options so varied,

Each with burden, your brain now harried.

Time for new day, bright path awaits you,

Surround self with love, you have that power,

Let all who know you, in awe now cower.

Let no material gifts, though treasure they may be,

Fill your loneliness, for their love is but one way,

Seek out open palms, arms of heart you did sway.

Reach out from your melancholy, stand tall sweet friend,

Let your objectives be dear,

Tomorrow be not today, for your vision now clear.

No Tears for Tomorrow

Alone I trudge unbeaten path,

Head bowed low, fraught with sorrow.

As I wander, lost in time,

I’ll cry my tears tomorrow.

Each new day, I face the sun,

Longing for an answer.

Was I right, was I wrong,

Eating me like a cancer,

Imperfect thoughts on troubled sea,

Reasons beyond my reach.

Cavernous desire, the need to learn,

That which life had failed to teach.

Sad memories alone do linger,

Gratification but mere dust.

But I will go on, to do my best,

To learn of love and trust.

At days end, I will face my fears,

Erase my sorrows,

I’ll stand tall, shouting out to all,

I’ll cry no tears for my tomorrows.
