If I Knew..

If I Knew…5/24/02
If I knew it would be the last time
That I’d see you fall asleep
I would hug you more tightly
And pray the lord, your soul to keep
If I knew it would be the last time
That I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
And call you back for one more
If I knew it would be the last time
I could spare an extra minute
To stop and say, “I love you”
Instead of assuming you would know I do
But just in case I might be wrong,
And today is all I get,
I’d like to say how much I love you
And I hope we never forget
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
Young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
I get to hold you tight.

Dreams of Tempest

Dreams of Tempest


The eternal oblivion sings its dirge for me.

To love me not,

To hide away in whispering shadows instead.

You are the velvet,

Viscid viper’s voice inside my head,

The Warm,

Enticing darkness that everyone dreads.

I fear you not,

I love you

Yet I know you not.

Like cool rain on a suffocating night,

You soothe the anguish in my soul

Where nothing else can reach.

You are the greatest teacher and the perfect lover and yet…

Alone we are and empty both are we

The enlightened living in shadow,

Lonely ever more.

If I had a wish,

It would be this that all

God’s people would be just like him,

Able to cope, trust and just get along.

And not wonder if someone’s doing them wrong.

If we just put our trust in Him,

Then we could surely enter in,

And enjoy what life has to offer.

Instead of trying to hate on your sister or brother.

Yes, life would be so sweet,

If we just stop trying to compete,

For what’s already been promised.

Life everlasting and peace of mind.

So, get it together and claim your prize,

For I truly want to get what’s mine.

Mother Nature

Mother Nature

Moonlight sparkling on the fallen snow

Giving the night an awesome glow

All little creatures have to rest

Safely in their cozy nest

Knowing that with the coming of dawn

The countryside will have a perfect white lawn

Little tiny tracks from the snowshoe hare

Might even be some from the big brown bear

Let’s not forget the little wren

And maybe even the turkey hen

All in all what a wondrous sight

When mother nature moves in with all her might.


Brightly colored, cellophane covered boxes 

Hold a “fix” and one less breath of being. 

Their contents are tidy. 

Hidden under a soft silver foil 

They lay fresh and new, virgin. 

An exotic beauty with coy eyes 

And ink black hair plays a siren song, 

Inviting you to hold her glass body to your lips. 

She is amber golden seas, 

And the rich spiced flavor Of unknown lands. 

A timeless pungent aroma 

Grabs subtly at the threads of reality, 

Slowly pulling them apart and reweaving them. 

A sharper image and warmth Emerge through the thick air left behind. 

These are small treats and vices, 

An ounce or breath of self reward, 

In a daze of expectations…
