When a gentle breeze sweeps past me overwhelming my senses and arousing the bittersweet memories in my heart . . .

I don’t want it to end

When I witness the glimmer of a full moon across the lake on a dark quiet night
Like lingering on the last few pages of a really good novel . . .

I don’t want it to end

When I am lured by the soft sounds of chirping crickets out my window I surrender to a peaceful, dreamy slumber. . .

I don’t want it to end

The Search Goes on....

You know it does exist
a part of you that has been left behind
in the ruins of your past
in an other time

You sift through the rubbish of your mind
through the desolation of your heart
searching. . .

You tread lightly. . carefully . . slowly. .
only a flickering glow of hope
on and off, to guide you

Minutes are pushing the hours
days are forced into years
you feel the urgency
its value lessened with each moment

It does exist
you keep searching. . .

Pricked by the shattered pieces . . .
of my dreams
Wretched emotions fill my veins . . .
dripping from each wound
Leaving a trail . . .
my heart is exposed
Raw and aching . . .
pain continues to sedate me

Falling * * * Stars * * *

Two falling stars *
Floating from the sky above. . . .
Spiritually colliding their hearts with cosmic force

They want to embrace this sensation of love
But know it will sway them off the expected course

Two falling stars
Drifting in the atmosphere. . . .
not knowing what they will be or who they are
shielding their hearts from Love, out of fear

They're just two stars
aimlessly falling . . . .

Like the Statue of Liberty
She surrounds herself with every age, race, and creed

She believes herself to be empty and starving
Yet her heart beckons to so many in need

She knows no strangers, she has no secrets
She tells even her enemies her fear

Her eyes, her weapons, pierce you with compassion
Always ready to drown you with one tear

Her kindness and sincerity beg your forgiveness
At any cost

Her beauty covers up the scrapes and scars
From every tribulation she has lost

Her love goes deep
Over the borders her roots are allowed to spread

Her branches intertwine, are entertaining
It's blossoms fill us with humor, we are fed

When days are too full of woe and shade
And you want to hide or complain

With warmth it would cheer you
To meet her, to know her, my friend Jane

I sit here anxiously staring at my computer's display
Curious what others are doing and what the worlds about
All the ideas and thoughts fill my head with such disarray
Have I checked in? Or is this my way of checking out?

Everyone thinks they're connected; they're in! They're where its' at!
Its like going to the koolest party anywhere around
They can browse, buy, sell, blog and do instant chat
They can research anything; even the unknown can be found

So I surround myself with information, it only takes one click
Enough is enough! I should just log- off and walk away
I've become addicted to downloading media and instant music
So I sit here anxiously staring at my computer's display

The delusions of this past year seeped into my mind and heart like a slithering snake
It bit me with its poisons that one often thinks they are immune to
I became paralyzed
I couldn't step backward
I couldn't move forward
When I felt your concern and care, I hugged it like the life preserver it was and still is
I spilled out my heart with my temporal joy and with tears of anguish
They flooded your ears, tied up your phone line and tested the patience of your husband and children
I feel the snake still close by, coiled up, ready to strike. I have to carry my stick, be on guard
I'm getting weaker
I've been so thankful to you for being there,
and I feel so helpless now to be a friend to a friend in need
It hurts to know I've let you down and even more knowing I'm letting God down
He hasn't asked much, just to love him, by loving others
To believe in him, by putting my trust in him, knowing that he knows best
But I've been the independent and stubborn child that thinks she has it all in control
I've been victimized by my own pride, bitterness and selfishness
like luggage floating to the surface after a shipwreck
I feel like I'm coming to the end of a long, dusty road, only to realize I've taken the wrong turn
I need to turn back, face the right direction and start walking
I've been hesitating.......Its along way back

Visions Within the sun's rays breaking through the foggy mist
Gently.....softly...he appears...he exists

So close, I almost feel his breath brush against my cheek
A rush of warmth fills every vein within me, I lose all consciousness, I become weak

I want to turn and run, become obscure
What does this all mean? I'm not sure

It's too late... I'm held captive by eyes, filled with love, that pierce into the depth of my heart
He whispers..."we will never be apart"

And then he's gone...just like he came
I feel his presence, his love, and I don't even know his name
