A Litany Of Thanks


For many blessings large and small

For love that lasted through the years

And for all the friendships I recalled

That carried me through many tears

For patience that was hard to find

And hope that sometimes was fleeting

For endurance that was not far behind

That I welcomed with an ardent greeting



My Kind Of Man


Tall and hairy with a bulging chest

Arms that encircle me as I rest

Lips that nibble eagerly at my skin

Rising goose pimples once again

A voice that lingers in my mind

And causes me to respond in kind

To whisper teases in his waiting ear

Enticing him with kisses,we make some pair



Soul To Soul


Tell me of your deepest yearnings

And need to feel you're not alone

Trust me with memories you treasure

Have patience when I take that tone

And Wish for me all lifes goodness

Few tears that sting like braided rope

Patience and luck in equal measure

And strength anew to help me cope

Hoping to attract that kindred soul

With a longing that knows to wait

My heart opens up to accept the one

Forever more to be my mate


The Treasure Of Autumn


Golden boughs and crisp bright leaves

The aroma of chestnuts , roast nearby

Quickened paces and rolled down sleeves

Children playing tag eye those passing by

The wind moves aimlessly to and fro

Moving passersby with excited breath

Waiting squirrels hide down below

Expecting treats with a clever eye

Soon pumpkins will fill country fields

And gourds will grace Thanksgiving tables

Falling leaves from trees,no longer shields

The masses from the emboldened wind



An Ordinary Time


Longing for a quiet time to return

When simple pleasures reigned supreme

A hectic pace,now somehow burns

My candle at both ends,but how I dream

Of special days that brought pleasure

Having time to stroll to favorite places

Hours that were free,I failed to measure

With time elapsed,missing familiar faces

I often envy nature,and how things are ordered

Everything has a purpose and a time to shine

So often we find our lives are disordered

Needing to proritize,before we fall behind


Her Grief


Does anyone understand the pain that stings
Forever a part of her soul, which somehow clings
To every facet of her being,she pushes it away
But her tears keep coming,her grief always stays

For she has heard that,spirits sometimes stay
Earthbound,to help the living find their way
She imagines his smile and comforting touch
A man for the ages,he is missed so much


Longingly,she recalls the days gone by
Of happier times,and she wonders why
Love's not enough to heal a broken heart
For only times' passage gives a brand new start

She grasps for memories to soften the pain
Of a loss so difficult,she can not explain
For sorrow is personal,stamped on her soul
She hopes that tomorrow she will be whole

The Dance


Your arms circle me and provide the heat
of a never ending fire that warms my heart
While soft kisses you give when we meet
Helps memories to linger when we are apart

Waiting for the lovers dance,I hear the sound
Of my heart anticipating your every move
Soon we will sway till we hit the ground
As we make beautiful music beyond the groove


Sweet memories linger of your tender touch
Like a graceful melody It invades my soul
When you're away,I miss you so much
As we are once again joined,I am whole



Forget The Hearts And Flowers


Forget the hearts and flowers

And pretty gifts that bring smiles

Instead remember hours

Of heartbreak that stayed awhile

Sorrow like an unwelcome guest

Infiltrates like an open sore

And somehow I gave you my best

As you slowly headed for the door



Remember Me With Smiles


When my long journey on earth comes to an end

And the river of tears flow out to the sea

When silence appears like a long lost friend

And time alone replaces the feeling of "we"


Then please recall special times that we shared

And laugh at mistakes that we seldom forgave

Recalling two souls that often lay bared

For our special bond will survive the grave


Of Winter Born



Of winter born,a pale child

Restless like the rolling wave

Surviving,barely,in the wild

She calls to nature,to be saved

Wolves are restless,hearing cries

Of one so little,as new as snow

On a tiny crevice,here she lies

Above a hill,creatures below

No human parents to embrace her

And shield her from the wind and cold

They lay buried underneath her tears

A newborn they no longer hold.

And suddenly her cries are heeded

As wolves encircle her fragile frame

Providing warmth to her as needed

No prey is she,They know her name

The years pass by like lightening

The seasons flee like grains of sand

Embracing nature,she looks frightening

As natures’ parents lick her hand


The Night Descends

As the night draws the curtain close

And all the earth lays down it’s head

The moon and shadows strike a pose

As our little ones are tucked in bed

Ethereal beings take to flight

As heavens’ curtain slowly falls

They pass unseen through out the night

To undertake their sacred calls

To guard frail humans in their sleep

Bringing hope to weary souls

From house to house,they quickly leap

To carry out heavens’goals

Reigning In The Shadows-

Sometimes doubts and fears arise

As the shadows of life grow longer

Pity and fear,the light does despise

For the light makes souls stronger

We flounder in the shadows path

Lost in our own dark night

For the darkness later shows it's wrath

Clear within our sight

But the light soon reigns in the dark

And brings us faith,and hope

The dawning light provides the spark

To erase the shadows and help us cope

Grief Has No Hold

I will not keep you behind an iron gate

But will unlock my soul to accept the beauty

Of the dawn and ascending road

Invisible as the path may be

I will feel my way through

With head held high and shoulders straight

For there is more light than shadow

Hope is more prevalent than fear

I will remember more songs than weeping

And the joy that comes after a long battle

The Eternal Artist(For My Brother Patrick)

Time no longer holds you in its’ hands

You are free from the burdens of an ordinary man

Ethereal beings guide you to the artists’ den

All of heaven and earth is your canvas now

Beckoning you to to capture clouds and angels wings

To observe and record the changing scene

Capturing birds in flight soaring through a breeze

Vibrant colors spill from the brush in your hand

At last you have shed the confinements of a mortal man

With Thanks And Love

For all the love you freely gave

The outstretched hand through strain and stress

And words of praise you often lent

Of hope and smiles you quickly gave

For all the joy your presence brought

You lit the paths,which I thought gray

And delivered moments rich in dreams

Your life passed quickly,I often thought

But memories stayed and soothed my tears

Fantasy Man

Simple gestures that make me smile
His caring touch to last awhile
A man of honor to admire
Not a cad or a common liar

A humble soul who is kind
Of kindred thoughts: we're of one mind
Whose laughter makes me want to dance
In him, I 'll always take a chance

Whose very presence make others stare
His movements like a gentle bear
At home,he loves to cook and sing
In him I’ve found my everything

Erotic Fantasy On A City Bus

Vacous eyes staring across the way
Becoming lost in my fantasies and lust
Dreaming up scenarios to escape the day
Escaping boredom on this city bus
I focus on him slithering in his chair
Feeling a desire and longing to touch
Avoiding his glance,he is unaware
of how I desire him,so very much
Suddenly,the bus comes to a halt.
Seemingly occupied,I miss my street
I sprint to the exit,It's all my fault.
Glad to be away from all the heat

Like a new seedling
Covered by the darkened earth
Man waits to emerge

Pushing up slowly
To an uncertain future
Takes a deep breath

Breaking the surface
Showered by bright sunlight
Growth comes slowly

Happiness arrives
Like a brightly wrapped package
Soon to be opened

Like the feel of rushing wind
Quickens the process

Elation sets in
As the gift of happiness
is slowly unwrapped

Complex and moody
Requires cultivation
Produces fine crop

The gardner takes care
Nurturing every flower
With patience it blooms

Despite tender care
Love like a delicate plant
Will sometimes wilt
