Poem: A Heart of Stone

Afraid the past will come to haunt her
And resurface once more
Full of love filled with
False promises
Lies and betrayals
Shattered hopes and dreams
She has no desire to let love in
For another broken heart
Is something she can no longer bear
So she spends each day in isolation
Left alone with a heart of stone

Poem: No More

No more lies
No more pain
No pretending
No restrain
No more tears
Left unshed
No more words
All left unsaid
No more fear
No hesitation
Must take charge
Release temptation
It is time to change my life
Time to soar
And time to thrive

Poem: Tears of Red

There’s no way I can forget
All these moments ever-lasting
Tears of red forever shed
Fragile heart in need of mending
When I think of those near
Yet so far from me to know
When I think of those held dear
That I lost so long ago
They’ll forever live inside me
Be a part of me through life
And together they will guide me
Past the age of ninety-five

Written October 30, 2017 for new poetry book I am working on.

Poem: Sometimes Hurtul Words Can Heal

Sometimes hurtful words can heal
Make you see the truth within the lies
That you made yourself believe were real
To cover up the failures in your life

So when hurtful words come your way
Look past the hurt that attacks you
And focus on the intention of what was said
For it is meant to help you soar
Not lead you to surrender in defeat

Poem: Rain

Rain bangs on windows, on roofs, and on cars
Creates puddles and rivers and flows very far
Rain cools the body and soothes the soul
Refreshes the air and helps the plants grow
The rain is essential for all living life
For without rain no life would survive

Song Lyric: I Need Love Here Tonight

Wish it was me
Wish it was you
But there is nothing
That I can do
Can't bring you back
Can't make you stay
So here I am
Well on my way

I'm on my way to find the reason
Why you have left me here this season
So I can make things right again
Be ready for my love's new plan
Oh how I need love here tonight
A love to finally set things right

I hope I find
Love at my door
So I can let
My happiness soar
Right now it's sour
I want it sweet
So that every hour
Makes me complete

I'm on my way to find the reason
Why you have left me here this season
So I can make things right again
Be ready for my love's new plan
Oh how I need love here tonight
A love to finally set things right

Poem: Castaway

When I sit home alone
Sometimes I feel like a castaway
The only person to talk to
Me, myself and I
And so I do just that
For sitting all alone in total silence
Can be worse than being in a crowd
But feeling like you are
The only person in the room
