Do you have wishes?

Because I have dreams

They are not of the lofty sort

Basic needs for my soul…

Do you have dreams?

Because I have wishes

Not of the greedy type

Simply to be a better man for you

Do you have needs?

Because I have wants

Not of the lusty sort

Just the chance to hold you tight

Do you have wants?

Yes I have needs

Not to worry though

They are on hold, waiting for us…

Do you hurt?

Yes I have pain 

Not of a physical way, just heartache 

That I cannot quench in a day…

Do you have pain?

Yes I hurt…

Not to mention that 

I so miss you in every way… 

Comforted only by your scent, your touch and the sound of your heartbeat. 

Do you… love as I do?

Lost her breath

Heart skipped a beat

Every chance I get

With my eyes, I sweep her off her feet

In my arms

I steal a glance

Her smile starts on the inside

She steps back out of her stance.

I see the happiness come forth

It’s love that I evoke

From the depths within

I have given hope to her heart that I awoke.

Hand in hand

Everywhere we go

Day after day

Like a seedling it shall grow

Evoking truth

Awakening desire

Gingerly stepping 

Forth from the ring of fire

My heart is strong

My mind is clear

With you by my side

There is nothing to fear…

She has the will of a warrior

Yet the patience of a saint

The beauty of a goddess

That all the greats would paint…

Fighting for her life

Without glamour or fame

This is a true test of faith

Not an ounce of blame…

Proud, beautiful yet always tired

Never one to complain

Stubborn, strong yet albeit mired

In the grips of internal pain…

Carries inside a heart of gold

Yet warn down from the fight

She has a warm heart yet still bold

Always doing what seems right…

Cancer is an ugly disease

It will make you want to drop

All I can do is love and say please

Don’t give up or ever stop.

You are loved by many

Known closely by few

Admired so very deeply

Always remember, I love you!

Darkness envelopes my mind

Agonizing decisions

Fatigued from the grind.

Seemingly always in our own way

Endless visions 

I close my eyes, and I pray.

Second guessing is so not me

Unwanted decisions

I open my eyes, and I see.

My love for you warms my heart

Future visions

Unwavering devotion from the start…

Simply put, I am in love.

Jealousy, vindictiveness, evil to the core,

Trying to live my life 

Yet it’s,  always about more.

Cruelty, meanness, it’s all about you

We have found ours

Move on, is what you should do.

Sadness, pain, is all this really brings

Time and money gone

Let go, of the puppet strings.

Smiles, memories, are what life’s about

Love and happiness I have

Continue on, never any doubt.

It’s a most difficult day,

Words are but few…

To hold you close,

Is all I want to do.

Decisions that are made,

Have consequences just the same.

We cannot be afraid

Nor choose to throw around blame.

Your beauty remains seared

Frozen in my mind

When confronted by another

I promise to be blind…

What we share together is great

It’s a love story for the ages

I cherish this very moment,

Writing about you on these pages…

I Love my Ginger,

Sanity picBlank stare…

Stuck in this series of blank stare emotions
Never have I understood what drives these weird notions
That writing happy thoughts could come with ease
But the darker side prevails and it still doesn’t please…

It’s always been easy to express my pain and fears
Writings have always come with a flood of falling tears
I try maybe too hard to print what is good in my plight
In this roller coaster life, the only words that fall…
never seem quite right…

A poem for a dear friend…

Your smile was infectious
your laugh unmistakable
always willing to help
and your devotion unbreakable

You grew up quickly beyond your years
Shy and unassuming when you were young
Never afraid to talk about your fears
everyone so proud of who you had become

Years have passed
but a part of me, you remained
always have I loved you
In my memory you are engrained

It was not meant to be
We’ve all had our moments to cry
please watch over us now
as you hover in the sky

You were a loving mother, wife, sister and friend
You left nothing on this earth untouched in the end…

Rest in Peace Renee,
Always and forever remembered…

Our time, for my boys…

I miss all the laughter
And even when they bicker
The smiles when I get them
Makes my blood a bit thicker

Time is never fair
It goes by ever so fast
We need to find a way
To make the time we have last

Our time is just that
It is ours alone
Seeing them in real time
So much sweeter than the phone

I have guilt that will never fade
And I will never feel the same
Memories are what is now made
There is nobody to blame

I tell them every chance I get
That I love them so
And give a wry smile
When they sarcastically call me Joe

I am not the same
When they are not here
It is the pain that I wish
Will one day disappear…

I will always be daddy
To the boys I choose to see
Every chance that I get
Is a blessing to me…

Dedicated to Christian and Alexander…

Amazing how changes
Infiltrate the mind
And rearranges

The life you once knew
Lost and forgotten
She was nothing to you

But to me she was all but unknown
Until after a simple conversation
I let my true inner-self be shown

It’s a story never to be told
Unlikely to be written
Another day refusing to be bold

Emotionally, It’s really just to bad
Oh for the love of humanity
Another beautiful life never to be had

Courage, love and determination
Distraught and alone
Oh the humanity and frustration…

In another life, maybe
