Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


Requiem For A Wonderful Soul

I never once wondered about you

Something inside me just knew

I do not toss around adjectives casually 

Although you might not think it

“Wonderful” aptly fits you

A universe within a universe sharing the gifts within you

I find it amazing how you were overlooked 

But we have learned that a blind heart can blind the eyes

The fact that our paths crossed was a disguised blessing 

It didn’t take long to come to that realization 

I believe we both changed that day and in ways we have as of yet discovered 

Wherever you are I hope something catches your attention 

To let you know you are thought of fondly 

A blessing of which is never taken for granted

For sure someday, we will meet again

#RomanticTuesday: Sunsets Are The Least I Can Give


I sat out back

Holding the sun in place

Waiting for you to come home

So we could enjoy the sun setting



I pinched myself

Yes, this is a living dream

Who am I?

Fortunate man

Fortunate one

When you found me, broken in some ways

You did not judge or turn in fear

You only accepted me

Sometimes flaws can be discriminating

Sometimes, they are beautiful

Thank you for accepting me

This broken man in a shell

With your love I have discovered pieces long lost

My soul exposes its nakedness, somehow, unafraid

Your gentle caring ways lift me

So with each opportunity I get

I hold the sun in place

Until you are home

Sunsets are the least I can give

For all you have done for me

The Tutelage of Time

Where do they lead?

The trail goes on 

Each footstep is a wish

Each petal is a gentle kiss

Under the tutelage of time

You learn what matters most

Making the most of this round of time

Continuing to spread petals on the path 

If they will lead you somewhere bright and beautiful

#RomanticTuesday: Your Voice 

Your voice is soothing 

A calmness away from a noisy world

The way you laugh

Ignites an abundance of joy in my heart 

Your words hold me captive 

Allowing me to dream along with you 

Your tone is that of such a love filled and loving soul

Sweet sensibility to my ears an on to my soul

Your voice is love awakening in each new day 

And no matter where time places us 

Your voice is the sound of home

#RomanticTuesday: Seasons Gone By


As the seasons go by

From the snowflakes to the drops of rain

From spring’s reawakening to blazing summer sun

My appreciation of you deepens


Seasons gone by

This well of love never dries up

Complacency kills the heart

So I love you stronger

Not allowing a day to go to waste

Or take for the granted the sound of your heart beating

Thoughts of a last embrace, a last kiss, a last touch

Fuel my desire to hold you longer and let your essence linger in my heart

Sometimes words get the best of me as my expressiveness unfolds

It’s alright, love should always stir the soul

I remember the last photo of you I looked at

And I remember what life was like before you

Seasons gone by

This well of love never dries up

Only deepening that much more
