Hope


Hope,
Is not just a useless word,
It has endless meaning,
Freedom,
Is not an actless sentiment,
It keeps us breathing.
***
We all live in hope,
To live in freedom,
When freedom is taken for granted,
Hope is ignored,
And one by one,
People become,
Mindless hordes,
Living for tomorrow,
Saving for today,
Having nothing to their name.
***
Hope
Is not just a useless word,
It gives the world meaning,
Love,
Is a binding force,
That keeps hearts beating.
***
We all live in hope,
To find true love,
Which shows our blindness,
Love not just your partner,
With true love,
Love your neighbour,
Your father,
Your fellow humans,
With the same love,
And the world will be,
As it should.

Sorry For My Silence


We have been apart for so long,
Not spoken in word or song,
Haven’t said a word for years,
Not been at each others ears,
Time moves on day by day,
And we both work away,
Although we are silent,
We both know we aren’t absent,
One day we will sit down,
And chat for hours,
But for now,
Sorry for my silence,

I Am A Lucky Man


Very few people are as lucky as me,
I have my love at my side,
My family in my life,
And friends around,
***
I would be nothing without my man,
Although I don’t say it much,
I love him beyond all measure,
And I know he loves me,
***
Family is a strong thing,
And mine is no exception,
We stand with each other,
Through thick and thin,
***
And who would I be,
Without the friends who complete me,
Although there are few,
They are close and dear.
***
When I’m feeling down,
Or stressed at life,
I just remember,
There are those not as lucky as me.

I Dream


I dream as does any man,
I dream of life,
Of money,
But mostly of you.
***
Our lives together,
Lived as one,
Our dreams shared,
Every one,
***
A life together,
Of love and laughter,
Happiness and Hugs,
From now ever after.

2016 Christmas Countdown 4 : Keep Me Warm


The cold is back this year, 
And I have you here, 
Stay with me the night, 
Keep me warm from the cold. 
*** 
Please stay with me, 
And never leave me, 
Stay with me this winter, 
Stay with me forever. 
*** 
Please don’t just be a christmas dream, 
Say you will never leave me, 
Kiss me and take me tonight, 
And cuddle with me through the night. 
*** 
I will keep you warm, 
And never let the cold get you, 
If you will just be mine, 
I will never leave to be lonely. 

Acrostic Love Poem


Right when I had given up,
Over you came,
Bringing me to love again,
***
Because of you,
Everything feels new,
Every day feels good,
Come hug me now,
Reach for my heart,
Only let me go when you have to,
For now I’m thinking of you,
Think of me to.

Winds Of Change


The air has turned cold,
The nights are darker,
The fall of the leaves,
Is almost over.
***
People grow tired,
The world grows weary,
Some people think winter,
And just go teary.
***
The lonely find Christmas,
Too much to bare,
And sometimes it seems,
People just don’t care.
***
Find someone who needs,
Someone who could use you,
Stretch out a hand,
And let them know they’re not alone.
***
Winter happens to us all,
It makes us cold,
And makes us scowl,
Some worse than others.
***
So this is my plea,
My Christmas wish,
Find someone who needs you,
And give them a hug and a kiss.
