The Mission 


Prim and proper

Poised and ready to shine 

On a heart stirring mission 

A declaration of affection 

Dressed in their best 

Stunning elegance 

Light awaiting to shine

In the eyes of gratitude

Romantic Tuesday: I Hope You Understand

pen-filler-leave-communication-163014

Did I say what I wanted to say?

Not withhold words from you in any way

*

Express how I felt with a gentle touch

With a soft caress demonstrating just how much

*

No matter how the world expands

Never letting loose of your hand

*

Did I give you my voice, when it you needed to hear?

I hope I have never withdrawn from you or disappeared

*

In this life I understand

In this life I am just a man

In the life I hope you understand

In this life with you I’ll always stand

*

Were my arms strong enough to make you feel secure?

Assuring you that through it all we would endure

*

I want you to know that it’s not about me

In this love there is always a capitalized WE

*

Did I give you authenticity today?

Not nothing other than my true face

*

Leaving nothing to chance or regret

Loving you as if it is the first time we’ve met

*

In this life I understand

In this life I am just a man

In the life I hope you understand

In this life with you I’ll always stand

Live What We Live

birds-1624407_1280

Although I cannot see

I can feel

When the birds are in flight

I stand in marvel at them

The sky would be crowded if we all had wings

So I marvel at their sequence of flight

Although I cannot see

I can feel

Swallowing words like soft gels

Easing what is going on inside

Live what we live

And find a way to make it all worthwhile

And All These Words

image

And all these words
Pound in my heart
Like a herd of elephants
They march towards the opening
The expression of truth I can’t hold back
Magnificent truths
I see stars in the day sky
I see beauty with every tear cried
I see the face of love, I cannot deny
And all these words
They belong free
To march to a destined place
To settle comfortably in your heart
And they march magnificently

The Smile That Blossoms From Her Soul

Astonishing

How powerful a smile can be

A profound expression

Signaling unrestrained joy in the universe

Every time I look up to see you smiling

I smile too, it comes natural

It comes from knowing you, another beautiful truth

This is why we plant good things in the soul

To see them sprout, bud, bloom, and grow

I love to see you smile, I hope you know

The world inside of you lifted up

Incredible, how powerful a smile can be

Yours is

Atomic

Lifting up the world inside of me

Three Words

The shortest verse

I could ever do

Is the penning of three words

“I love you”

Profound in sound

Resonating deep down

As I turned to her

She smiled

And before my mouth could speak

“I love you too,” she said

Then kissed me on the cheek

I could only smile

Eyebrows raised

“She sure is special,” I thought

Day by day, I’m totally amazed
