Holding Forever…

No hand can hold a moment

Only the heart has the power and ability

To carry for forever

Each and every memory…



Just listen..

Walk softly love

Tread lightly please

There’s pain-filled hearts nearby

Just listen close

You’ll hear it clear

Their lonely moaning cry…

Wrap gentle wings

With warmth embrace

Hold weak ones to your chest

Soothe shredded souls

Sharing your strength

Give them tender peaceful rest…

Come Night…

I see a glimpse

Just there

Star-kissed pearl fingertips

Patiently waiting

A welcome sight…

But no, not yet

I’ll not be reaching for that gentle hand

I’m not quite ready

At least… not this night…



Will yesterday’s take my today,

as sepia stained thoughts mute

the sun and it’s warmth…

Until tomorrow

when this lost day takes life to become

another one I’ll not forget

having chosen to stack it with all the others

I’ve labeled regret….?


Handwriting ….

I write tunes and poetry

Collected thoughts dwelling in my head

Music and notes that time has etched

From the feelings I have bled

What I scribble

What others see

Are parts and pieces

Of my past … And me


Tongue Tied

A few hung in the air


One or two drifted off


The perfect ones clouded all thought

Others I grabbed would not be caught

Silence grew as is its way

Stealing the words I didn’t say….
