Hiya Bubbles!!


Flightless is the rapture
That’s tethered to the tree
Just as old memories
Hold back the free

Take measures to unbind
The leashes of the past
Take flight on new wings
Soar, the mighty vast

Hiya Bubbles!!!!

Hope all is well with you today!!!!


STARS OF TOMORROW

Each night the sky glows
Filled with stars of tomorrow
Lighting the way
And lifting the sorrow

Each step towards the future
Is another step from the past
Each shining star represents
Contentment at last

Each falling star represents
Pain that slowly fades
Each wish you make
Is another of life’s upgrades

Hear my confession all,
I am sad that you are ill,
I am sad that demons plague you.
Understand, when everyone else has abandoned you,
With pride, I will stand alonf with you.

Fear not, I am with you until the end,
For we are comrades, we are like brothers or sisters
You have steered off course, I know you are lost,
I am here to hold your hand when no one else will ,
I will not judge you, I will not forsake you.

I will hold you gently to my chest,
I will put my arms around you,
I will comfort you until you are filled with joy,
I will pray with you until your prayers are answered.
I will forgive you when you hurt me,
I will be there when the world around you has gone mad,
I will provide sense everything chaotic.
Together we will fight these demons,
We will conquer them,
But not matter what, I will be here with you.

Everyone will ask, who am I?
Why am I with you?
Why do I forgive you?
Am I blind to what you are doing?
They are all jealous.

. . .For I am your best friend
. . .I shall not let you perish with in the night. . .
. . .For I will not let you perish without a fight. . .

Hi Desire is Due,

Thank you for your comments, and there is no offense taken, it is your opinion and you are entitled to it. Otherwise, this world/site would be pretty boring if you didn't have an opinion. May I ask what about the poem or my poem you didn't like? I am curiuos.

Many thanks,

American Gentleman

Upon the sky I looked today,
I took a deep breathe and thought of the words to say,
This journey called life,
It has caused me more grief and strife.

For lifes questions, I seek answers from above,
I wait and wait but I have no answers,
Maybe His answers came in the form of His everlasting love.

As child confronting his parents,
I know I have done wrong,
I do not deserve their love,
But mercy.

The words spoken here,
To me, they are very dear,
Of the good I have done on my journey,
I am sure everyone has had a chance to see.

Of the good and bad the words I write here,
Nothing can compare to the people whose eyes I made tear,
Sadness and sorrow fill my heart,
To this day, it tears me apart.

These words I have not spoken to the Lord,
I fear, it will be my last chord,
What I say today, it may make no sense,
But with the journey I have been on,
Just maybe, someone will lend an ear,
To listen to my unspoken words and fear.

For now, I am holding these unspoken words,
They torment me each moment, each day, each hour,
I dare not go to the House of Prayer,
For I am not worthy, I have words unspoken,
These unspoken words,
It is my confession, will you listen?

Hiya Bubbles!!!

I hope all is well with you!!!

THE BROKEN BRIDGE

When a bridge is broken
A repair, is a quick fix
But in time, the repair weakens
When it was time, for new cement to mix

To rebuild the bridge
Makes it stronger
And then can hopefully
It will last, a life time longer

Distance

Strangers we once were,
Words was what bonded us together,
The words of joy, poems and our tragedies,
Though distance may separate us,
It is as though you are there.

It is by chance that we meet,
But deep in my heart,
Our friendships were meant from the start,
You all are true blessing from Lord,
I hope these words strike a friendly chord.

There are days when I forget,
But your kind words always remind me before the sun sets,
To keep the Lord always near,
So that I when it is my time,
I will have nothing to fear.

My friends you will always be,
Always in hindsight, you all I shall see,
Whether by chance or fate we meet,
A prayer for you today I shall say,
That the Lord keep you all safe all the days.
And remember, I said a prayer for you all today.

My words today will not matter to many,
But for a solemn few, they will move even the optimist,
Do you believe that love can move mountains?
Do you believe that to heal broken hearts all you need is a love fountain?

As strangers we met,
Upon her captivating smile, my eyes were set,
In plenty of supply were words of courtship and romance,
It would seem that of us were both in a trance.
We were half a world apart,
But her loving and comforting voice, they are in my heart.

From strangers, to lovers, we became,
Life for us would never be the same,
The smile and sparkle in her eyes,
It reminded me of the stars in the Heavenly skies.
I am at peace, I am in harmony,
To the Lord each night, I would get in my knee,
And I would thank Him.

Each day we were together,
No one could take us apart,
She was my life, her happiness was my happiness,
Her sadness, was my sadness.

Each day was with love, respect and honor,
This is what she deserved, nothing more, nothing less,
To her family, I promised to love her and honor her even in death,
And from two, we became one.

I am in Heaven,
I am a husband,
A family now we shall start,
For any man this is a dream come true,
Nothing shall break this dream of mine apart!

And one day, she is gone,
Not in death, but gone,
In her written words, she had moved on,
Sadness that day fell over me,
My heart was broken, I could not see.

In what seemed like an eternity,
All I can do is think of what did I do wrong?
Was the love I gave to her not enough?
Was the home I gave to her to big?
Was the money not plentiful?

A pin has pierced my heart,
My life before me was falling apart,
There was nothing I can do,
Receive help noone, I knew.

In the days that followed,
Death was always at my door,
Death's offer was so tempting,
It was hard to ignore.

From time to time,
Death visits me,
He wishes to have more than just me,
Is it my soul? Or is it my spirit?
What does Death want?

To this day,
I do not know why she has gone,
Love her each day I have,
The love in my heart is growing cold,
Each day that passes,
My friends keep telling me I was told.

Always I did what was told me,
Be always a gentleman to your wife,
So that in love with you,
This is what you both will always see.

Each day I see flourish,
I see love make two people become one,
All this, under the beautiful sun,
But sadness I watch,
In sadness I see what life for me could be.
But life now is cruel, this is not what I wish I could see.

Into the night sky,
Always each night I cry,
My time with her happened so fast,
Sometimes I ask those in the sky,
Is is true that "nice guys finish last?"

HER TIME

She walks a long road
To excel in new living
To herself she is dedicated
To herself she is giving

Time to look forward
Her needs now come first
To run in life’s marathon
Without dying of thirst

I can heard from the far reaches of the Earth,
I can cause mountains to crumble upon hearing my voice,
I am told to everyone who is willing to listen.

Those that know me,
They can accept me,
Those that are good in heart,
They will always hear my part.

Those that do not wish to know me,
They can never accept me,
Those that with evil within their hearts,
They will never get to see what I am about.

Everyone with something to hide fears me,
For they do not want you to know what I know,
They will hide me from you,
They will deny my existance,
Because when you know who I am,
I can cause them to fall.

Sometimes I am so well hidden,
I can be found in the grave,
And I can be also found in a book.

Known am I to those who wish well upon their brother or sister,
You can choose to accept me or reject,
It is up to you.

Know this,
Accept me, and your eyes will be opened,
Reject me, and your eyes will be denied.

Do not fear me,
To those that listen, harm I do to no one,
Embrace what I have to offer,
And your heart shall receive its fill.

Does who I am scare you?
Do not be,
For I have been part of this world since man walked this Earth,
Everyone speaks of me each day,
Whether they hear me or not, it is their choice,

. . .I am the Truth. . .

Hiya Bubbles,
Hope all is wonderful with you!!!
I did this today, and 8 people smiled at me, in about 4 minutes!!

VOLUNTEER A SMILE

When the day has got you down
And everything is going wrong
Take a walk up the street
Bet this won’t take very long
Watch the people as you pass
Simply volunteer a smile
See them smile back
And wait just a while
Stand and watch the people he passes
As they are walking towards you
See how many are still smiling
From what you started, with just two

"Life is not fair" thought the young man,
Love is all he seeks, and to be loved,
Why does love elude him so?
Is this punishment from his ancestors?

So many years this young man ask this question,
Finally, someone has caught his eye,
Her beauty is capitvating, he wishes he could not die,
He is in love, and she is in love with him,
He is in Heaven, no one can take this moment from him.

Their love last many years,
But with all good things,
There is an ending,
It is and ending that does not involve him,
For the love for him she once had grew cold,
And her love grows warm for another,
She must say good bye to him.

A pin has pierced his heart,
His heart now bleeds,
His happines is all but gone,
Why is love so cold?
Why does love grow cold?
Why?
This is all the young man can ask.

All around him, they are finding love,
They go not far for it,
But for him, the young man,
He waits and wonders, will love find him once more?

He has found love again,
It is a time for rejoicing in Heaven,
For the young man has devoted his life to her,
And she to him,
Until tragedy again has found the young man,
Her love to him, grows cold,
Warmly it grows for another,
Betrayed he is, And all he can do is watch.

Sadness and sorrow follow this young man,
They find his company joyful,
He wishes they would go away,
In the nights twilight,
He shouts to the heavenly night,
Why?
Why does bad things happen to good people?
Why does evil flourish?
Is loneliness my destiny?

And by grace he feels at peace,
He realizes how blessed he is,
For he asked to be loved,
His prayers were answered,
He has loved and he gave love,
And he understands now,
For it is better to have at least known love,
To have loved is better to not have loved.

For now, he waits,
Love shall find him,
When he least expects it,
Love shall find him when he needs it most,
. . .In his darkest hour. . .

Hi Bubbles!!

I hope you had a great weekend!!


MYSTERY OF THE SPIRIT

When I finally fall to sleep
Now, I know I’ll find
Those special little dreams
Taking over in my mind

Where time is irrelevant
In the luster off the waves
Giving in to the mystery
Of all, that the spirit craves

When Someone Dies

When Death is upon us,
He will take without asking,
He is the thief that has no remorse.
I shun Death, I fear Death,
But when confronted with Death,
I with all my courage,
I will stand up to Death.

When he takes away those dearest to us,
Those that dearest leave behind signs,
They leave behind signs that they are alive,
Even though Death has gotten his due,
Those he has taken, their life begins anew.

We can hear them constantly,
If we listen closely,
We will see that they are still here with us.

When sadness is anew,
They are the gentle breeze upon you.

When sorrow is ever present,
They are the kind gentle memories.

When the day seems cold and everyone has lost their minds,
They are the comforting warm sun upon thy back.

When tears can no longer stay in thy eye,
They are the beautiful star in the sky.

They are telling us they are alive,
All we need to do is listen to what they are saying:
. . .Although I lie in this grave. . .
. . .I did not die. . .

UNKNOWN BOUND

Inner voice speaks
Telling me to run
But the heart says
It can’t be undone

Which road to travel
What do I do
Run away
Or run to you

Caught in the vortex
Spinning around
Internally dizzy
Unknown bound
