LIVE IT, BREATH IT

LIVE IT, BREATH IT
Live your life with the freedom given
Live your life and feel, feel the freedom
Spread those wings
Shout and sing
Sing so that you’ll be heard
Shout your visions
Commit to your visions
Feel, feel the freedom
Breath in the air
Without a care
Feel the wind in your hair
Blowing, casting the shadows
The shadows of doubt
The shadows of fear
The shadows of being unloved
You Are Loved”
Feel that love!
Touch that love!
Harness that love!
Embrace that love!
Never, ever let anyone
“Tell You Otherwise”
You, we are all unique
A uniqueness shaped and formed
From a higher love
A love so unconditional
A love so pure and simple
Open your heart
Open your eyes
Open your mind
To all that is beyond comprehension
Without any hesitations
Without expectations
It carries a voice
A silent voice
A whisper on the wind
A whisper that says to you and I
“I Love You Unconditionally”
“Take my hand”
“See where my love is”
“Feel where my love is”
“It’s wide, wide, wide”
“It’s across the rivers, streams, lakes
And oceans so wide, wide”
“It gently flows with the ebb of the tides”
“It is endless, ceaseless”
“It’ll arrive in a torrent of wind and rain”
“It’ll arrive when you least expect it!”
“It’ll arrive on the wings of a dove”
“Live your life, be free”
“As it is meant to be”

ANGELIC BLISS

ANGELIC BLISS
That I so miss
Your tender touch
Oh how I loved you so much
I miss you by the miles
Laying here by my side
The warmth of your embrace
The touch of your face
Wrapping me up in
Ribbons and lace
Our love so undivided
Our love so complete
Oh how I wish that we could meet
But you are not here, yet I feel you are here
A presence, a feeling deep within
That wondrous knowing
Your loving warmth
The sweetest tenderness
Kind-heartedness
Oh all the balminess
That we had so long, long ago
Why did you have to go?
Leaving me so, so low
It was not your time!
I look for your special sign
The moon and the stars still shine
I cannot say goodbye
It hurts too much
It is too raw
Raw, raw, to the core
But the time has come once more
As I tread through the door
The door to love and peace
With you always here by my side

INNER SANCTUM

INNER SANCTUM
This quiet space
A hidden retreat
Refuge
For time and space
Retreating
Withdrawing
From the human race
Quietness
Stillness
Calming
Soothing
This space
The rushing of the water falls
The roaring
The spray
Cooling
Soothing
The thundering of the water
Rushing over the rocks
Pounding out the noises
That was stagnant
Lingering
In the mind
Gone
Frozen
Abandonment
Leaving it all behind
Relinquished
Let it go
Let it go
This quiet retreat
Bringing you back to the center
Of your being

JUST DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN


I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN
My thoughts are jumbled, mumbled
I thought I had it all!
The happiness, ridden of all sadness
But then and now
My life is still full of sadness
I miss the tenderest of touches
I miss the softest of embraces
I miss the silly banter
I miss the candor
But do I?
Miss your candor
Your sincerity went blowing in the wind
Along with your openness
An openness to hold hands
An openness so that our lips met
Right there out in the open
Two lovers, two friends
Where there was no pretense
Now that the seasons have changed
The fa├žade and charades are over
You made me believe
And then you go and leave
But one thing remains
I still love you!
And nothing remains the same
Except for this hollowness
And here I sit wondering if you know
How it really, really feels to be left alone
How it really, really feels to feel this cold
How it really, really feels to be not held
Time is my enemy
Time is eternal
Time is not here!
Time keeps running away from me
My thoughts and feelings scattered
Scattered like the autumns leaves
Floating into the endless ether
It’s like you live in a world where you never listen!
A world full of your own glisten
Glitz and glamour
Minus the honesty, integrity and veracity
Time and seasons change
And I hope that you will too
For the next lady in your life
Not giving her any trouble and strife

ACROSS THE SMOKEY ROOM

ACROSS THE SMOKEY ROOM
I watch your shadowy figure
Trying to figure you out
You sit there with a mind elsewhere
Gazing into space
Without a trace of emotions
You look lost
Your look confused
The sparkle in yours eyes gone
The music in the background playing
A sad, sad love song
You cup your head in your hands
Recognizing the beat
Wracking your brain
Like a runaway train
We’re both alike
Sat here in this Smokey, Smokey bar
Listening to that
Sad, sad love song
A love we both lost
That does not belong
You ask the bartender for a drink
Drinking our sorrows down the sink
You pull a cigarette from its packet
From there beneath your jacket
A jacket a dinner jacket
Looks like a date has gone wrong
Your tie bedraggled
A red wine stain on your shirt
Oh my do I know that score!
Here I sit cigarette in my hand
A martini on the stand
Trying to hide a red wine stain
Down this wondrous dress
He threw it over me
All because of you!
Yes you across this Smokey, Smokey room
Listening to that dam, dam
Sad, sad love song
You have wrecked so many lives
With your lies and rumours
And now it has come back at you
KARMA
But I hope that you’ll learn
Learn that you know how it feels
To lose someone you love and loved
So I will just be a face in the crowd
Passing the night away
Losing track of time
Passing these long, long hours away
