Memories

What are memories,
I hold in my mind?
Videos, photographs,
Un-indexed; easy to find.
All playing in parallel,
So sweetly, as I recall,
All the memories of you dear,
You’ve kept me so enthralled.
Many images of you,
Conjured in my head,
And if I cannot meet you,
I just look there instead.
At all these things of beauty,
Accessed through my heart,
All kept behind my eyes,
Whenever we’re apart.

Solitude

Solitude

 

I sought I searched
my soul ached
for the simple peace
Of solitude.
Wrapping my world
in the sunshine
warm safety
Of solitude.
Time turns the wheel
tears the foundations
healing was found
In solitude.
Years flow by
tears fall silently
smiles sparkle secretly
In solitude.
Now tears have no comfort
secret smiles fade
my soul feels the sting
Of Solitude.

A Dream?

A Dream?

 

Last night we went to a far away beach.
The waves caressed the sand where we
made our bed.
The moon warmed the summer sky, and the
breeze cooled our bodies as we pressed so
gently together.
The stars danced across your golden brown
body,like a road map for my fingers.
The birds sang a song of love,
Just for us…..
and I was lost forever in the softness
of your love.
