His Song of Goodbye

I see her smile as she looks my way
her deadly silence does display,
My heart knows she must be the one
laughing with cynicism within her tongue

With Crimson Satin upon her breast
clings to her body’s frame as if a test,
Draping soft curves along her trim waist
longs to depart without lingering haste

She moves across the room glancing his way
then looks away as if her lips would say,
‘You wait your turn’ I’m not ready yet
I’ll whisper your name with Ruby lips wet

I look to see how he reacts to her glance
seems uncomfortable; wish he had a chance,
Taking my drink I move to his side
trying to tell him my love I can not hide

Aware of me his eyes let me know
then they move away so very slow,
Eyes that drift to a Crimson Satin doll
his longing eyes slide across the dance hall

I knew his love has drifted away
for the bond we had he can not display,
Loving arms that once held me tight
now drift away during day’s sunlight

One has captured his heart from me
she must be the one who has stolen I see,
Ruby lips and she is dressed to kill
my heart cries like the Whippoorwill

Songs of love he sang into the night
love songs now gone as he takes his flight,
My heart is broken for she must be the one
I have known the truth, now I heard it sung -

in his song of goodbye

Autumn's Gift

Autumn comes to all so sweet
Paints her leaves she leaves a treat
She longs for awaited sleep
Soon winter snow comes so deep –

Autumn brings peace

Jesus walking with me

Knowing - deep in our hearts
we shall come around again in time
we salvage what truth is for we
shall draw upon it twice as much

Knowing - deep in our minds
faith is the key to our sanity
we lean to those who bring us
safety with their heartfelt love

Knowing - deep in our beings
a sanction is waiting to comfort
leading us to a light of fulfillment
and joy with others who know - Him

For Now...

Half of the 60 million American women 
who are 45 and older are single

My life is full with joy in my heart
feeling inner peace surrounding me
knowing I am blessed

But, something is missing as I try to
sweep the feeling to a secret place
a pocket hiding deep in my soul

Trying not to think about this empty
void it comes, it stays, it lingers
longer than I wish

Longing for companionship
sharing words with another
sharing thoughts together

It is not meant to be for I have
been lead in another direction
walking this path alone

He says, for now...

what you see shall
come through Me

Curtains of Lace

Curtains of lace
Fill my world
The cool airy
Elegance of thread
Woven into patterns
Of sheer beauty

Like the threads woven
So is our life’s pattern
So delicate but
Strong against the world

Intertwined are we to love
And to be loved
This is our choice
This is what shall be -

For Infinity

Unsettled Trail

Discovery - comes in strange ways
from the slightest intuition to an event
that stirs right in front of one’s eyes

Discovery - triggers strength within
as one gains the fortitude to investigate
what questions lie in the dormant mind

Discovery - the mind’s learning
tool that brings completion to a
lingering unsettled trial of trust…

from years of the past
