My Forever Companion

Love is not a hope,
Nor a memory,
It is not earned,
And it can’t be lost,
Before you even ask,
You are forgiven,
It’s your forever companion,
And loyal friend,
Your iron will,
And your gentle touch,
It fills every corner,
And every room,
It is both why and how,
And only here and now,
It is the soft place to fall,
And the firm hand that lifts us up,
It is the world without a filter,
And Peace without end.

The Brightest Dawn

As if witnessing my first sunrise
My jaw dangles beneath my nose
It is the brightest of dawns
Suddenly two eyes are not enough

If breathing required thought
I would be sent gasping
Too long I’ve dabbled in shadows
Settling for shades of grey

I embrace the passing darkness
Had I not been so lost in her black
The sun would have burned too bright
Sending me running to familiar pain

But as the stars are hidden in daylight
There is love disguised in all things
Don’t waste a nanosecond searching
For it is already looking for you

God Bless The Tears

God bless the tears
that cleanse the soul
that abate my fears
when pain takes a toll

The anxious thought
and judgemental mind
aren’t all for not
just all in time

God bless the flame
that lights the path
leads past my shame
and egos wrath

After and before
Tis thanks I give
but my guide no more
I choose now to live

God bless the wrong
it illuminates the right
I know I’m strong
but no need to fight

Come in my friends
we are not foes
there’s hearts to mend
and much to dispose

Take off your shoes
hang up your coat
we’ve paid our dues
we’ve crossed the moat

Slight Resistance

Slight resistance
still remains
as her hands
reach to my face

She doesn’t touch
but feels the warmth
as I sing my song
with gasping breath

Then her lids
begin to drop
I cease my tune
and stop my rock

No scuffing pants
nor squeaky floors
not mumbly voices
or shutting doors

Her eyes are shut
her breaths are deep
the task at hand
nearly complete

One final turn
one shortened sigh
one loving gaze
one last goodnight
