My Love For You


My love for you has only grown,
Over the years and over the miles,
I have never stopped loving you.
My heart has been yours,
Since we first said hello,
Since you first let me know.
And after all this time,
You will understand,
The way my heart demands.
Some would have given up,
And some think I’m silly,
But I still love you.
My heart calls for you,
And sings continually,
I Love 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.

We Once Said I Love You


You once said I love you without force,
Without pain, without remorse,
What we had was special,
But the bitterness came,
First it was just arguing,
Behind locked doors, then in public.
***
I once said I love you without wincing,
Without a sigh, without rolling my eyes,
What we had felt right,
But the cruelty came,
And we drifted apart,
Lived separately, Then moved apart.
***
We once said I love you without spite,
Without sarcasm, Without venom,
What we had worked,
But what finally came,
And finally ended it,
Was sharp words, and harsher jibes.

The 1967 Breakthrough


Am I dreaming,
Am I alone,
Could this be,
Could we have won,
Love is allowed,
Love is not wrong,
Society accepts us,
Society moves on,
There is still more to do,
There are those who protest,
Society will adapt,
Society has already,
Love has been accepted,
Love has no limits,
Could tomorrow be better,
Could we love free,
I am not alone,
I am not dreaming.

Light of my Life


Years passed where I asked for you,
And who knew,
You were asking for me too.
***
We may not have known each other,
But our hearts knew,
you were asking for me,
And I was asking for you too.
***
My mornings are bright,
Waking next to you,
Seeing your smile,
Just being with you,
***
Once my nights were dark,
But you see,
You are a light,
In my life to me.

Illegal Love Of 1947


I sit in my cell,
Thinking about my sin,
Wondering what I have done,
Thinking about him,
I sit on my own.
***
I stand by the window,
Thinking what is love really,
Wondering what could have been done,
Thinking what is reality,
I stand by myself.
***
I love a man,
Thinking what is wrong,
Wondering what society has done,
Thinking why love is gone,
I love on my own.

We All Deserve To Be Loved


Our world is still confused,
The LGBT community is so new,
But the concepts and ideas,
Are older than all of us combined,
LGBT month is a time to celebrate,
The achievements before,
The freedoms we have,
It is a time to reflect,
On the work yet to do,
The places we haven’t won yet,
There is still unfair places,
Places ruled by hatred,
But use this month to remember,
Humanity will win in the end,
And no matter your creed,
Sexualuity or colour of skin,
We are all human,
And all deserve to be loved.
