You Make The World Simple


The world is full of pain,
Fear, hate and war,
But with you here,
You make me forget it all.
***
Few things are impossible,
When we are together,
The world is forgotten,
And life is never better.
***
Every time I see you,
My heart turns to jelly,
And my every whim is,
Waiting for your command.
***
When the world gets busy,
And life gets confusing,
You sit with me and smile,
And everything is simple again.

Guide Me Through


Take me from dark,
Right into the light,
Right through the day,
And into the night.
*
If love is the dark,
Then you are the light,
Taking me through the day,
And through the night.
*
Let me be in your arms,
That you may guide my way,
All through Valentines night,
And Valentines Day.

To An Old Crush


You stole my heart,
Heals my scars,
Made me see,
What you meant to me.
*
My morning thoughts would be filled with you,
My evening pondering wouldn’t be complete without you,
You never knew,
Did you?
*
I took the risk,
Told you of my heart,
I payed the price,
I don’t think I could pay again.
*
The days we spent together,
Were always a great delight,
But they also brought pain,
I would bare it just to be with you.
*
I know we couldn’t be,
There was never a chance,
But I still could dream,
And dream I did.
*
It took six years for me to tell you,
It will take six more to get over you,
My heart will always yearn for you,
My mind will learn to get over you.
*
So one last message I have to say,
Thank you for you loving friendship,
I wish you could have felt the same way,
But the heart is strange,
It wants what it wants,
Yours will never want the same as mine,
So I say goodbye with a smile,
A serge of pain,
Goodbye old friend,
Maybe will meet again some day.

Love For The Now


We wait for love,
Until we can wait no more,
We don’t look at what we’ve got,
Instead we look for what could be in store.
***
Life is simpler,
If you love what you have,
And don’t think about what you want,
But be content in the now and thank for the tomorrow.
***
Grab your friends,
Remind them you are there,
You will love them no matter what,
And will never be unreachable when they need you most.

I Learned to Love From You


My heart was hardened before I met you,
And you softened it up,
Made me see I deserved love,
Made me feel I could love.
*
But now you have gone and fallen silent,
And my heart is growing still,
What have I done to push you away?
Will I ever know?
*
You have stolen my heart,
And left me lonely,
will I ever know,
How I pushed you away?
*
Just come to me and talk to me,
And maybe we can see this through,
But if we can’t please don’t worry,
I learned to love from you!

Will Boys Just Be Boys


Will boys just be boys,
Or girls just be girls,
Or can’t people be people,
In our small little world.
***
Why do genders have to be genders,
And not girls be like boys,
Or boys be like girls,
Or just let people be people.
***
Can’t we look beyond the gender,
And see the person,
Who likes pink and Buffy,
But is still a straight man.
***
Care not for the sex,
And ignore the gender,
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
And never surrender.
***
We are all human,
The same under the skin,
Red blood flowing through,
The veins in all of you.
***
We are born the same,
Have the same needs,
Expel the same waste,
And leave the same way.
***
Love people as people,
That’s all we need,
Don’t act out of hate,
Respect, love and be great.

A Poem To Stephen


Stephen, I would like to say,
I feel what you mean,
In all that you say.
***
I writhe with language,
And feel the play of words,
Especially at the blank page,
Where I can write my verse.
***
There’s something exciting,
And mystifying about language,
Whether it is English or gibberish.
***
A rhyming poem,
Can get me going,
I absolutely also appreciate,
A good bit of alliterate.
***
Never have I felt more myself,
Than swooning over words,
Like a tailor over felt.
***
There is also an excitement,
In that special moment,
You hear a foreign phrase,
And you just know it.
***
So thank you Mister Fry,
For this spectacular piece,
That please my ears to eat.
