Too good

Like magic  

We were there  

Where love lives forever 

Inside each other’s hearts 

For unknown reasons we got scared  

So, we ran away from each other 

And the magic disappeared  

But never left our hearts  

How I dream of us then 

How I dream of there   

I wish I didn’t regret  

I wish we had it again  

I wish you still loved me like that  

Cause my love…came back

Misty notes

I’d watch my breath- dissipate  

As I sat out in the twilight fog 

The burbling brook playing notes  

Shivering myself near half dead  

Memories and emotions burned on  

Whispering thoughts of you in the air  

Secretly praying you’d get them  

Hopefully, before they lose their way  

No one ever mattered as much as you 

I always thought you were an angel  

And if I were to tell the gospel truth  

It is a hell of a thing to lose- as a human    

I can see the colors of dawn coming on  

I really could use a warm hug… love me

Used to believe

Thought I was running away from you 

I just ran from what you do- to me  

Until one day my weary shadow  

Finally took the time to tell me the truth  

I was running from myself  

And everything I could become  

Running from the illusion I thought I was 

But mostly, everything I never could be   

Believing only in others’ make-believe   

Believing that I was never good enough  

Believing in all the shameful ugliness  

Like- I could never be loved 

Now I fully understand, I’m better than that  

And today I love me… just as I am

Coeur à coeur

Out of the moon’s witnessing  

I humbly wept upon my knees  

My essence, weary and broken  

As days, weeks- years passed by 


Time after time, I was tempted  

To become angry and lay blame  

To point- at the world at large  

My rented heart hushed my ego  


I evaded my own tragic selfishness  

I sequester myself from the world 

I closed my eyes in contemplation  

As I sat alone in the darken silence  


Finally, I requested an audience  

Whispers answered… I am here!

(When you find the courage to forgive the world, you must also forgive yourself.)


Finally, after all this time  

We are here, face to face in truth  

Smiling at this opportunity 

Look how far we traveled broken  

Separated by unfair circumstances  

Neither of us could control , but we tried    

One of us was always- letting go  

Trying to keep those battle scars whole  

Trying to survive, trying to do right 

And here we are now in triumph    

There is nothing needing to deny- anymore  

It is our time to reconnect as we once were    

We have been waiting to live love 

My mind and heart have overcome… reunited

These sonnets akin to my leaves

Written words by a voice in me

Slowly I’ve resigned to let go

Of my untold stories, I know

Some are written by my pain

Some are written for a change

Some are written in my blood

Some are written just because

Some are written by my shame

Some are words I can’t explain  

Some are written in my tears

Some took me many of years

Everything comes in due time

My soul… whispers their flight

Early- long before daybreak

I pack up my backpack daily

And head out to the waterside

Toting along my folding chair

I stroll until somehow- I know

I’ve found my true vantage spot

Set up an umbrella and my chair

Put on my sunglasses and hat

Then stare, at the bands of waves

Rushing towards shore- all-day                  

I see the prismatic flashes wink

Just before disappearing beneath

The surface of what used to be

Before the water had become… frozen

I know things do change

And I used to worry about it  

Permanence was my balance

But I stopped noticing days

There’s only two that remain- vital   

The day when you were born

And the day I lost you from here

When bruises covered my heart

I pretend to recover somewhat

But the truth is, the hurt- goes on

There are times I can’t speak

My words are afraid at what I might say

They know I won’t hold back any longer  

I can’t be broken down… any lower

I know deep in my heart

She’ll be the one to come

As easy as a prismatic dawn

Delicate and precious

Like she’s always been

God’s perfect angel

She’ll heal me- in a breath

With her divine touch

Whispering love to my heart                      

As her grin makes all the difference

And heaven’s gates open up

As we stroll side by side, in step   

Over the threshold of life

Daddy and daughter hand in hand…again

Love overcomes

Photo by Frank Cone on

I walked out before daylight  

There was a chill- in the air 

Step by step I thought to myself  

What happens if no one cares?  

Somewhere off in the distance  

I swear I heard some whispers 


I could see across the vast horizon 

As the sun slowly inched near  

But somewhere in the zephyrs 

Were those drifting echoes of words   

I thought it was rain but was only dew  

Trying to collect my full attention

I stared up at the twinkling stars  

Wonder a bit more in the dark  

I never felt alone in all this time 

But something deep inside me broke  

As a tear raced down my cheek  

I felt my soul inside- give a sigh  


Brightness of the dawn overcame  

Everything including my sight  

There was no way I could see  

But in all that ethereal brilliance 

I felt a Holy presence- embrace me  

And all my questions dissipated  


It seemed to have lasted only a minute  

I noticed most of the day had gone on by  

I was confused as it left me far behind  

I stood all that time- in the same place 

And that light gently slipped away  

Night had come into its silent space

Then- those echoes returned again   

And I understood… what they meant
