I will love you until my last breath
   I will tell you over and over,
Love of my life – even until death
   Or until the sun is no more.

To love you is a simple pleasure –
   Look at it as God’s perfect gift –
Love and passion is a treasure,
   And to your spirit in will uplift.

O love! O love! You make me teary,
   And when this life is done –
I shall rest and not be weary…
   And my love – you were the one!

 “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Open the door to your heart
Walk into love’s passion…
The moon is silent –
The night is quiet, so quiet, as if –
As if, love is whispering…
And then, the fire sparks a flame,
And the wine is delicious on your lips!
Then came whispers to your ear…
I need you, I want you, and I love you –
The yearning in your soul is burning
Screams of silence…
Echoes from a heart that has melted –
The quietness is broken – dawn appears
Satisfaction sheds no tears…

A time will surely come
When the rivers will no longer run
And the sun will not crest the mountain
Life will come to its end
‘It will matter not where we have been
I tell you the truth my friend

On the mountaintop I sit
Love, well how can I forget
O the times my heart was breaking
Then the wind comes near
And is it death that I fear
So why are my hands shaking

There have been many paths in life
Filled with good filled with strife
But one learns to grin and bear it
I look at all the plans I made
In sun light or evening shade
Very little time for regret

A thousand words this poet has used
Somethings coherent or confused  
But this heart and mind has spoken
The truth that’s in my soul
And at times I’ve been too bold
Just mere reflections of where I’ve been

A time will surely come
And there will be nowhere to run
I know you think I’ve lost my mind
But you just need to think
Life is gone in an eye’s blink
Yes there will come a time

Then this life will be no more
But will we knock upon Heaven’s door
Will the angels welcome us in
Will they say well done my friend
So I will remind you again
Soon this life will end

There will not be another sunrise
We will not have to compromise
No more lies and no more scheming
No more deceitful deals
No more for sport kills
Riches we won’t be needing

I think we need to fall to our knees
And cry out O Lord please
Forgive us Lord of our wrongful sins
We’re sorry we were so contrived
Our souls we have compromised
Then we close our eyes – life ends

Life: just days gone by
          But why does my heart cry –
Yes: the last few years have been rough
          But heartaches I must bear
I live in a world that doesn’t care
Despair: yes there are times I’ve had enough
          Darkness in a heart –
No: there is no point in being a victim
And love, well I can sure pick them
          But who are you –
To say that life is a walk in the park
Love: maybe I need to take a better view
          Of days gone by –
Remember: love can make the heart cry!

Quiet, but loud,
Timid, but proud,
Humble, but fearless
          And all the while –
Time moves on – year after year,
And we keep silent because of fear,
Then we expect others to cheer!
          We are like a child.

Cries from a silent world!
They are only words on a page I pen,
          Then you smile –
All this quietness there seems no end,
And insults of despair are hurled –
          Silence: a lifestyle?

Who are you? Did you make the rules?
Your leftist agenda taught at Ivy League Schools!
A conservative view point you always appose –
With your venom of hatred that glows…
You discard everything that doesn’t serve you!
It’s all about you – always a one sided view…
You smirk at the world with a condescending smile,
Then you gloat like it’s just your lifestyle!
You weave your thoughts like a spider’s web –
Then your vindication waits like the ocean’s ebb…
Your evil heart lurks like a snake ready to strike –
You take from all, and you never give back!
Who are you? O you call yourself an intellect –
Well I think you’re delusional – with no disrespect!

Sprinkles of fairy dust into the air
That draws on fantasies from within –
Erotic passion that stirs the enter soul,
Like narcissistic reflections in a mirror
That only ones self needs to know –
A look into the mind can be scary…
Self-indulged thoughts of lust –
Into the soul with its infinite depths!
Such lures that even a saint can’t trust!
Dreams that leaves us gasping for breath,
But truth! Is this something we can admit?
Where fantasies start – where fantasies end,
They can be like the dance of death –
So tell me it’s not true – O hypocrite!
