Thank you.

My darling youngest girl,
How could I ever let this be,
You were brought into this world by Love and into Love

God you were so beautiful, so like your mother
How could I allow your independence and my stupidity
To erect a fence between our Love

I was tall enough to look over
But I neglected that you might not look up
And perhaps my life wasn't one to look up to

But the Love I claim
Was created by him that all look up to
And what God has created not even I could destroy

[Placing your trust in one so completely and to be so completely trusted is both the most awesome responsibility and deepest compliment]

Awesome lafandlive, I have written that down for it says soooo much. I appreciate you taking off on my line and running with it. For others that is not the line I was referring too. I have taken off on one of your later posts, hope you don't mind but when my grandma died I sent over an arrangement called the Rose of LaRochelle, you brought back good memories bud.

My Rose of LaRochelle
I was not there with the family
As God took you from the vase
But he left for me
Your floral scent lingering
A reminder of a love uncontaminated
By the smell of one's life
A true feeling
That overcomes ones shortcomings
Without dimenishing ones faults
And sees the goodness in ones soul
The beauty of a Rose

Bob,
C'mon you're a poet, it is a privledge to inspire someone, whether it be words or action.
That line was very profound, I guess that's why we write to somehow try to penetrate all the crap that's in us to get to our soul and express it somehow. I know for me sometimes I have trouble finding the words even when I can get that deep. Keep writing, hope you won't be troubled that I may repeat your line (I will give you the credit though). And yes I am new to this site and there is alot of great writes going on.
It is inspiring me to write again.
Duke

....Hearts and Roses
Posted: 6/29/2008 1:34:54 AM
Hearts and roses entwined together,
Symbols of love forever and ever.
Two loving hearts beating as one,
Surrounded by red roses and warmed by the sun.

Beautiful couple with bright shining eyes,
Hands reaching out to each other.
She in her gown of satin and lace,
He with the broadest of smiles on his face.

There at the altar they knelt side by side,
The Priest began to pray.
God looked down from Heaven above,
And sent to them a pure white dove.

The symbol of peace flew into the church,
Surprising those who were there.
Then sat among the roses red,
Wings outstretched and bowed snowy head.

Husband and wife walked down the aisle,
As pealing of bells filled the air.
There was much talk about their deep love,
And hearts, red roses and the very special dove.

God, we made love tonight
like the first love between man and woman
i felt as Adam deprived all those lonely years
wants and yearnings unfullfilled
and then completed and coupled
upon seeing, feeling entering my Eve
i felt as if God creating the universe
i knew paradise
God we made love again today
we will rest on the seventh

Kids its always the pits when its kids
I have never understood gods logic on this
Yea I know hes got a plan a vision
That we as mortals can never see
But dammit why the kids man
It shakes my core to see kids go
Through hell with no apparent
Reason or rhyme

But thankfully hes got you a
Heart so true to stand behind
The word UNCONDITIONAL
I commend you, for what you do
Not looking for commendations
Or a parade to celibate you kindness
I commend you, for what you do
Because hes part of you

People like you Mam are the true heroes...I know you don't want to hear that but just my opinion..

Almost forgot think on this one though your the gift!

Thank You
Marc

I'm gonna roll off of your Honey quote, darlin
lol, I'm sorry, I know you're only 27

but, that doesn't matter
I know to pull over if your bladder is full
how much are those totinos?
we're not headed towards vegas to hit the casino's
let's get hitched
you crazy bytch
I don't know that I'm the one
but, I do know that I'm having fun
and welcome to the commune

They can Almost see the circus
tied to the spinning wheel
Two parents of a child like us
tried to teach it how to deal
"Daddy please make it go faster
Momma I'm not to old to cry
This one I will love forever
If I can't have it I'll die"

Peek at that kid ten years later
in the seat of a new ford
running away to 'Vagas
parents sigh, "help Lord"
They heard "I don't know that I'm the one
but, I do know that I'm having fun"

In the middle of the mix
smooth as batter to me he comes
in his eyes are love and laughter does he think I am the one
Yes he is tall and handsome
But am I too old and wise
shall we go around together
shall we seek another prize

Settle down and raise a family
to the circus we will go
Will our children be any better
scary to reap what you sow

calm I agree
is found in the loud silence
sitting on the porch at night
never a light to be seen
except for the ones
caught by my Hunter man

talkin on the days past
somebodys always tellin
a story on back in the day
and how it used to be

finding bliss in the blackness
just folks talkin the way it used to be
every body hinged
on grandpaws one liners
of course the ladys were already in
on his second shot of gin
us young ones sitting with
a shit eatin grin
man I miss the ambiance
and the calm found in the
loud silence

"Waves of nostalgia crashed over me"
As I stood on my parent's front porch
the smell of BBQ was so good
made me want to cry

Mom came out of the kitchen
Smoothed my hair back kissed me
Placed a bottle in my hand
Take this out to your dad hon
He's been waiting for your return.

Dad looks up from the meat
takes the beer in his free hand
with it cools down his temple
takes a sip turns toward me
Y'know your mom was sad to see you go

That's their way of saying I love you
took me years to know

You want "The answer to the riddle" there on the wrap
Bazooka Jo always funny too bad the gum is so hard
A pink square of sugar costing 5 cents holding every one in suspence

"Check it out" April got it!
Wow we are impressed

Big bubbles of pink are popping
giggles from the back seat come
Now is the time we live for
A moment of peaceful fun

Now is the time we live for who keeps the score
who is on top where is the bottom who cares
that we are together now is what is important
what did you why did you how did you who cares
that you are here now is important
stay with me laugh with me hold me look at me be with me
NOW

wound up in a void without light
tapped the spotlight and on it came
rainbow sparks in a glossy cave
how beautiful the water carved lime plillars and walls
water held white fish with pink eyes
I ate lunch and then climbed out
My sisters will never believe that old hole worth the worry I caused
So to the family I just said sorry I got lost

from jujubee

I spent a lifetime one afternoon
"pouring through the hourglass"
plucking at each fallen grain
searching for the bit of sand
that marked the moment
when I fell in love with you
I thought it would be different somehow
blood-colored maybe
or smokey with desire
but no matter how carefully
I sifted and combed
I could never find it, never reclaim it
and finally I realized that
I was halfway buried
and my hair was full of lost moments
falling while I scoured the past
I keep the glass sealed now

should i take the time to fill in all the holes?
Nope lets peek though them
Let's jump in and out of them
Let's just leave them and look at them
let's let the dog put bones in them
let's let the nieghbors look at them
filling a hole does no good the dirt never all fits back

tonight I met a flame-haired dame
she totally blew me away
pretty and witty, Anne's her name
completely made my day

to say she's hot would understate
I'm not shallow but I do have eyes
she keeps herself looking great
hooray for jazzercise

when she said lets meet again
I smiled and said yes, please
I didn't expect a ten
she made me weak in the knees

sassy and classy, clever and smart
blue sky clears away the grey
I felt a dart go straight to my heart
thoughts of her won't go away

nor do I think I want them to
possibilities abounding
hoping she feels the same way too
she really is astounding

is this real or will I awake
and find it was a dream
not sure I've ever felt this ache
welling up in my bloodstream

so don't screw up be still oh heart
play it calm and real, don't fret
one measure at a time, Mozart
compose a sweet duet

sing it to the mountains high
let it echo in the vale
yours is not to ask but why
the wind refills your sail

just ride it to the farthest shore
delight in the salty spray
trim the sails as best you can
and aim for a protected bay

where calmer waters allow sweet sleep
imagining her in my arms
for now the still of night will keep
me beguiled by her charms

God bless you JuJuBee...
how soft and sweet you are as you see me through the movie
God bless your inventer for making you so colorful and chewy
God bless the sales man who gave me the box and took the money
God bless the guy who payed for you he smells nice too
God bless the action movies the big burst of flames
God bless stuntmen and actors with such great bodies
********* I'm out
God Bless you pop corn

I have such a block sorry its been so long sence I posted and the writing here is very good.

Love and compassion for those
is felt but blocked from expression.
So solid a rock never can show
the soft feeling or hot passion
keep to myself the pain
hide all worry and sadness
even to smile a strain
He's turned me to glass

Alas No Analogy

An analogy worthy
of the feelings I am feeling
after a deep injury
an even deeper healing
feeling like a dream
but actually occurring
the scratch behind the ears
that starts a cat to purring
the quenching drenching rain
that brings the ocotillo flowers
the being next in line
after waiting many hours
germination of a dormant seed
with a drop of crystal water
having a beautiful son
and becoming father to a daughter
the first rays of morning
bringing end to a long night
the graduation of a nestling
on its maiden soaring flight
flipping on a light switch
after badly stubbing a toe
the warmth of a hot spring
after freezing in the snow
a fresh mountain breeze
filling still desert air
followed by a cloudburst
shadowing suns blinding glare
coming back and winning
after looking like I'd lose
finding the perfect seashell
barefoot in the dunes
the dawn of a blue sky day
after weeks of winter rain
the feeling of a healing touch
eradicating pain
the energy replenished
at the fountain of youth
finding a handful of coins
in the telephone booth
an unexpected present
from a long forgotten friend
meeting someone in need
having a strong shoulder to lend
a hand appearing from nowhere
when feeling all alone
a resolving chord
after a dissonant tone
the arrival of someone special
after much anticipation
a warm soft kiss
after hours of flirtation
the elation of a blind man
who can all a sudden see
a feeling like no other
when I feel you close to me

who can all a sudden see
beyond the door slightly open
a light and warmth in a room
often dark and too cold
It is me and I can stand now
I can move toward the door way
to walk into the great unknown

trying, too, to fill a void
in addition to just moving on
thoughts in my mind I try to avoid
and so I stay withdrawn
from heart-wrenching pain and memories
of my fast-wheeled brothers
each cut down before the harvest
each time scarring their mother
a quest for speed and precariousness
was it reckless abandon
or just a time decided by fate
and echoed by the night watchman
a void as big as the starry sky
would be one way to see
but I tell them they are welcome
to continue on through me
use my eyes to see our love
and what you left behind
use my ears to hear the song
of words loving and kind
use my heart to feel the pulse
of life as it goes on
here in the land of the living
that you left when you moved on

there is a place
at the end of a dusty washboard road
where clear cool water emanates from the desert floor
it was known to be sacred
before white man came
to use it to power his greed
channelled over turbines
that churn through the night
a transformation begun
no looking back on simple days
when a man's backbone was all the source of energy
a family could use or need
