I turn around and you are therePage 5 of 38    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38)
One I received from my SO tonite

I turn around and you are there

When the day is tough and seems so long
I turn around and you are there
When nothing’s right and all goes wrong
I turn around and you are there
When I get that feeling that I am beat
I turn around and you are there
When those around me lie and cheat
I turn around and you are there
When the end of the road is hard to see
I turn around and you are there
When my family turn their backs on me
I turn around and you are there
When cruel words are arrows to my heart
I turn around and you are there
Of my children’s lives I’m no longer part
I turn around and you are there
Regretting words that I can never take back
I turn around and you are there
When I’ve wandered and strayed off the track
I turn around and you are there
When it feels my heart will break in two
I turn around and you are there
When I’m at a loss as to what to do
I turn around and you are there
When tears are threatening to flood my eyes
I turn around and you are there
And my soul does mourn as it silently cries
I turn around and you are there
When life’s too brutal to travel its road
I turn around and you are there
My shoulders too weak to carry the load
I turn around and you are there
When I need someone to catch me when I fall
I turn around and you are there
When I need someone to hear when I call
I turn around and you are there
Someone to hold my hand, show me the way
I turn around and you are there
When I need a place to rest at the end of the day
I turn around and you are there
When I need your arms to help keep me secure
I turn around and you are there
When I need a few loving words to reassure
I turn around and you are there
When I need someone to help me endure
I turn around and you are there
When I’m feeling lost and very unsure
I turn around and you are there
When I need to be told that life’s worthwhile
I turn around and you are there
When I need loving arms and a tender smile
I turn around and you are there
You are my strength, my courage and my calm
You tenderly soothe my soul with gentle balm
You softly wipe away my sadness and my tears
You give me reason to take and hold life dear
You are my beacon, the keeper of my fate
You are my friend, my life and my soul mate

Closer ties

Another my SO penned several years ago ...

Troubled Times

Troubled times they come and go
Right now you’re feeling pretty low
Your heart is filled with bitter tears
For all those sad and wasted years

Now misery has replaced the joy
Don’t let this, your heart destroy
The anger that replaced the calm
Don’t let this your soul to harm

Remember those that really care
Your troubles they would gladly share
Take comfort from the ones you love
For you’re the one they’re thinking of

A time will come when this is past
And you’ll find peace again to last
Just be strong and you’ll get through
Then to yourself you must be true

Open your heart up once again
Forget the fury and the bitter pain
Fill your heart with love and bliss
Feel the warmth of life’s loving kiss

Great Friends

I think deep down everyone has a burning desire to be great. They want to be the best
plumber, the best carpenter, the best mechanic, the best engineer, the best lawyer.
They want to be the best dad, the best mom, the best uncle, the best cousin and the best
friend. They simply want to be the best - they want to be great. It’s human nature to
want more for ourselves and to want more for others. We simply want to be great.

The other day a good friend of mine gave me a call. We were talking about a recent
promotion that I was passed up for. I work full time as a project manager and had been
told that I was going to receive a huge bonus for work well done but the compensation
didn’t fall through. I was offered a title change but nothing else. I wasn’t in the best place
and my wife and I hadn’t talked in almost 36 hours because of our conflicting schedules.
It was in that 36 hour that I received a call from a good friend of mine - my friend Jason.
I was really upset that I had been passed for promotion because I thought there was
something ‘wrong with me’. Jason didn’t see it that way. He asked me what had happened
and listened to my story.

While we were on the phone, something happened. I’m not quite sure what happened,
but I felt a shift - I felt lighter. I shared my story with Jason and he just listened. When
I was all done he just said the most beautiful words. He said, “Steve, with your skills and
experience you can work anywhere you want. You’re going to do great things.” I told
him how much I appreciated his call and he told me, “No Steve. Thank-you.” My heart
melted. I felt like crying but I didn’t. In all the years of our friendship, he never said
such a thing. It was in that moment I realized what a great person he is - and in his
greatness I realized how great I am. If you ever forget who you are, stop and listen
to your great friends.

Make great friends and keep them forever…. It’s in their greatness that lies the
greatness in YOU.

Nice write mmmmmy

Real Friends

I love friends who are real
They always share how they feel
When they are down
I will be their clown
And when they're on the up
I will be their little pup ...
It is through our sharing...
the knowing ... the caring
that we help each other grow
with angels within we glow
No matter where we travel
As life’s dreams we unravel
Even when we are far apart
We live on in each other’s heart
When life brings us to tears
Our friends will share our fears
Then when we’re on the up and up
They are there to share triumph’s cup
With those special friends we are protected
Our hearts of love and souls connected
No matter where we are, near or far
Each friend is an Angelic shining star.

A drink salute to friends.....
Here's to the times we never said goodbye
Here's to the times we made eachother cry
And come to think of it old Lady Liberty's starting to frown
So smack yourself get busy and head into town
The whiskies pouring from the fountain tonight
The ladies are all purty looking for someone to hold tight
The fellas are aguing looking to kick someone's rear
So I say son shimmer down son lemme buy you a beer
While the land is soft then the sky start to rain
Sit down and relax we're living in the US of A
Now old lady liberty is lifting her skirts and the party has just begun
Sit down and relax I'll buy you a beer if you're 21
All of us rednecks chillin with the hoods
No one of us fighting just enjoying what's good

Ummm yea i'm gonna stop right there! You got that country music in my head mmmmmy! grrrrrrrrr now i gotta go shower in some slipknot!

Trust and Deliverance
31 May 2008

Happiness was to feel love,
a desire more than most
An envelopment of truth,
a heart made to feel pure and kind

To wash away the bitter taste,
and smile, in a rightful manner
Just to know and love,
where being loved brought grace

A gratitude of dilemma,
beauty and true faith
The trust and deliverance,
freedom to think and prosper

Take heart for whatever
has broken your heart
Will heal once happiness
does in forgiveness return

I was here on POF and in the forums for around 2 years. From 2005 to 2006. Then thanks to my fellow poets. I got run out of town. That is one reason I am more of a mystery these days. As if gratitude is not always a blessing in these poetry forums. Therefore I do feel it is a pleasure to share another of my writes with you

Emerald Truth
26 May 2008

Yesterday I feared our love,
today I can but weight
A balance, a drifting of waves,
the paper cup symbolic of grace

To touch your skin,
looking into your emerald eyes
Finding beauty, finding more,
an endeavour of bright skies

Today and tomorrow,
washing away any sorrow
Because deep down we know,
the knowledge God does behold

Can you love me,
and am I able to love you
Only we will know the true answer,
only we can make this answer true

Words of Duty
11 June 2007

Happiness was a woman,
or a man with a loaf of bread.
Not to be hungry,
when all said.

This love, her love,
would it be true.
Three words, as
he would embrace.

Words of duty,
words of an understanding.
Faith, hope and charity,
trust, honour and respect.

Much as those three in number,
words made accountable.
To say and know, this truth,
a love of warmth in arms strong.

What I Did for Love


[Chorus Line]

Kiss today goodbye
The sweetness and the sorrow
Wish me luck, the same to you
But I can't regret what I did for love
What I did for love

Look my eyes are dry
The gift was ours to borrow
It's as if we always knew
But I won't forget what I did for love
What I did for love

Gone
Love is never gone
As we travel on
Love's what we'll remember

Kiss today goodbye
And point me to tomorrow
We did what we had to do
Won't forget, can't regret
What I did for love
What I did for love
What I did for

Love
Love is never gone
As we travel on
Love's what we'll remember

Kiss today goodbye
And point me toward tomorrow
We did what we had to do
Won't forget, can't regret
What I did for love
What I did for love
What I did for love

and ONE more just for you Jules my friend


God's Coffee

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit
their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints
about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned
with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass,
crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them
to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

"If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the
best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is
just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously
went for the best cups... And then you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society
are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup
we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee
God has provided us."

God brews the coffee, not the cups.......... Enjoy your coffee!

"The happiest people don't have the best of everything.
They just make the best of everything."


Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.

Leave the rest to God.

This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror where you
could read it everyday. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.


*1* There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.
*2* At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
*3* The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
*4* A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
*5* Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
*6* You mean the world to someone.
*7* You are special and unique.
*8* Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
*9* When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good always comes from it.
*10* When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look.
*11* Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

Good friends are like stars........You don't always see them,
but you know they are always there.

Even Though Sometimes It's Hell in the Hallway"

love does not exist.
i touch your nipples
with my lips.
you gather me your hands.
our pleasure is wordless.
if we, you and i,
live our loves together
for countless years,
love is wordless.
i touch your nipples
with my lips.
you gather me in your hands.
for years.
like waves on the sea.
like trees standing alone
and together
in the forest.
love is merely
the presence of life.
tomorrow
i will excite your nipples
with my tongue.
tomorrow
you will gather me
in your mouth.
time
proves love.
and love
doesn't exist.

Your gaze raises the blush of my cheeks
and the stillness of your frame frightens me
Our gazes locked in wonderous exhilaration
no breathe lest we break the spell of this moment

The perfume of your trade raises to my senses
and I remember where I am and why i'm here
a simple statue posing as in a fantasy world
This isnt the real me he sees after all, I know

Your skilled brush paints me as a lovely nymph
I am not that which you put upon the canvas
A simple woman with a heart broken by love
That which was lovely. tender drowning in pain

So make your pictures of imagined on canvas and oil
but remember my true heart that bears years of pain
Look into my eyes and see me, touch my lips softly
place me within your embrace, love me forever

In the scatterings
of minutes past

moments lasts
the ones of color
black and blues
good rosy hues
bright yellow joy
fire-red coy
memories, feelings
intertwined
the past...
has brought me up;
the seeds of memory
selected me

To lose heart
Lost in the myriad of suicidal
intention, in need of redemption
Melancholia surfaces like drops
of water falling , from every petal
until the leaf is drooping, ooozing
prostration from the depths of hell
Depths of the journey we know ...so well
resigning to sink into the neverending bottom
giving unto lonliness while malaise of spirit rot
Extremities reaching with no way , no way out!
Self destructive , sinking heart , you have let it happen
you are a sloth surrendering to the weariness of the journey
Have you abandoned hope? Let your spirit mope and burn?
All the while inside you yearn for life and birth
you reopen old wounds that you licked and carried back from
the tomb where you let yourself reside while you died!
Come alive inside and breathe the gentle wind that the rain carried
back to your heart , the one you thought had parted you
So it will heal and render you anew ...someday
It is... just that way!

Thanks to all whom posted here, very nice! :)

Face of an Angel
heart of a child
We managed a romance
now love is denied!
What face does a
loved one
bring out
when inside
The Angel
is hidden
she has
nowhere
to hide!
Ruined
and black
darkend and hard
You see they have forgotten
the hardest sad part!
Angels are present
they still stand around
When loving and giving
doesnt say a sound!

always there,
in every prayer!
Thank god
for the angels
Thank god
I'm aware!

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.yours too… Finally he decided since the animalwas old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. So, the farmer invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed shovels, and began to shovel dirt into the well.
All the other farm animals were very upset about this, because the donkey was their friend. But they discovered there was nothing they could do to help him. At first, when the donkey realized what was happening, he cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well, and was astonished at what he saw.

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off, and take a step up on the dirt as it piled up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well, and trotted off!

MORAL: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. But each trouble can be a stepping stone. What happens to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not giving up!

Shake it off, and take a step up!

As he said;


A Million old soldiers will fade away
But a dream goes on forever
I'm left standing here, I've got nothing to say
All is silent within my dream

A thousand true loves will live and die
But a dream lives on forever
The days and the years will go streaking by
But the time has stopped in my dream

We all have our everyday hopes and fears
And you'll find no exception in me
But that doesn't get me through a sea of tears
Over life's biggest tragedy

You're so long ago and so far away
But my dream lives on forever
I guess I believe that I'll see you one day
For without it there is no dream

You're so far away and so long ago
But my dream goes on forever
And how much I loved you you'll never know
'Til you join me within my dream
A Dream Goes On Forever


A lovesong that has always lived, in my heart~
Someday, it will be
Mine!
Maybe tomorrow!
And thats ...
just fine! :)



hugs my friend~ :)

~to Know~

The clock is the keeper
of time
we are weaker
In life
we are stronger!
Of heart...
it takes longer!
I am what I am
I won't change
not a lamb
more of a Tiger
heart is darker
I have left my
past to sparkle
like dust on a sky
ember lights
Don't know why...
I am alone
yet I'm strong
God knows
I did wrong
yet tomorrow
I see another
light bright and free
If my Soul bids it so
of this truth
I do know...
it will
guide me~

Good to see you girl! :)

~It's Not~

What I always knew
everything has a season
a reason, a rhyme
It wasn't you
I am sorry if I
hurt you
left you
inside a place
Just know
it's not you
it's me
I have searched
high and low
I have bent my
insides to come to
this place I am
I hardly have another
way to live , anymore
So many things to do
see and renew
I have done all I can
I know that now
you were not the plan
It is something inside
and many others that died
that brings me closer to
what I need,
things I do!
It's not ...you.
