Words Cannot Show

bs0168.jpg

I searched among the card displays,
To see if I could find,
A little something that would say
Just what was on my mind.

However there was not a one,
That captured it just right,
For no one else can understand
Just what I’d like to write.

I even find it difficult
To try to write it down,
For how do I portray to you,
The love that I have known?

I close my eyes and what I see,
Is someone I adore;
A person who is beautiful,
Right down into their soul.

Mere words cannot describe
The many qualities you show,
The love and caring nature that
You share with those who know.

Your kind and gentle temperament,
Your sweet angelic smile,
Your softly spoken sentiments,
That reach across the miles.

Your smile and laugh that sparkle with
The softness of your sighs,
The way your face lights up a room …
That twinkle in your eye.

The loving gestures through the years,
That quickly come to mind,
For always you’ve a gentle word
To calm and soothe I find.

I struggle and I search to try
To find some words anew …
And yet I cannot capture
All the things that make you you.

I shall therefore, be satisfied
That you must simply know,
Just how I feel about you,
For with words I cannot show

Last Sunset

 first-montana-sunset.jpg

This was our last,
Last sunset,
The last kiss,
The moment we shared,
We cherished it well,
How we spent it was well enough to make me cry,
The sunset was beautiful as if I can kiss the sky,
As we kiss,
You fade away in my arms,
The things we shared is gone,
The moments we had is gone,
No more us,
No more you,
I miss you,
As you fade away,
Away you go,
Sudden saddness I become,
Over you,
Over the sound the waves crashs,
Crashs towards the waves of the sun,
As you see the sunset,
Fawefell to you and I.

Just For This Day

father-daughter.jpg

Just for this morning, I am going to smile whenever I see your face and laugh when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you wake up softly, all rumpled in your flannel and I will hold you until you are ready.

Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to wear, and smile and say you’re beautiful.

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I am going to eat a huge breakfast , with bacon eggs, toast and waffles, and you don’t have to eat any.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that 100 piece puzzle together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the garden blowing bubbles.

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won’t worry about what you are going to be when you grow up or who you might have been before your diagnosis.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won’t stand over you trying to ‘fix’ things.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you put all kinds of barettes in my hair, and put lipstick on my face, and I will tell you how pretty you have made me look.

Just for this afternoon I will take you to McDonalds and buy us both a Happy meal so you can have both toys.

Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born, and how much we love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the bathtub and not get angry when you throw water over your sister’s head.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch swing and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will bring you glasses of water, and snuggle beside you for three hours and miss my favorite show on t.v.

Just for this evening, When I kneel down to pray, I will simply be grateful for all that I have and not ask for anything, except…

Just one more day.

Turning Circles

heartcassettetape1.jpg

When there’s no one else around to see,
And we’re both scared of what might be…
I would look at myself and wonder,
If I didn’t love you, would everything be better?
For years I’ve allowed myself to fall,
For a long long time, I did it all…
Holding on to a hope that you will reach for my hand,
And together we’ll face the world who wouldn’t understand.
Everyday is a struggle I should face,
to pay the price of wanting this race.
But what of it, makes me stay?
In lies and deception, what would love say?
When the only sound I hear is the beating of our hearts,
and with your very touch, true happiness starts.
Can I let this go, all i want is to be true…
and face the truth that no matter what i do, i really love you.
I tried to fight it, but I’d rather give in…
Though all the happiness I’ve known has been a sin,
Through all this hurt, wondering what could have been.
This has been a cycle right from the start,
Where every single turn is like a stab to my heart.
When I’d wish I could tiptoe out of hiding and pretending,
And finally put an end to this endless waiting,
I see you, and for some reason I know,
This really is worth fighting for!
See I’ve lost myself in this love,
When I’ve tried walking away but can’t,
When I’ve done everything I could, loving you,
When I’ve chosen what I want and need,
but wondering where this will lead…
I let rivers of tears fall from my eyes,
Cried over everything, the truth and lies
When I wipe away the tears off my face,
and embrace these feelings I can’t erase…
I hope to God that someday, in true love you’ll see,
And that you’ll finally choose to be with me.

A Beautiful Poem

th_th018.jpg

“You can love me, but I must make me happy.
You can teach me, but I must do the learning.
You can guide me, but I will have to walk the path.
You can coach me, but I must win that game.
You can even promote me, but I must be successful.
You can even pity me, but I will still have to bear the sorrow.

For the gift of love is not the food that feeds me;
it is the sunshine that nourishes what I must finally harvest for myself.
So, if you love me, don’t just sing me a song;
teach me to sing, for when I am alone I will need the melody.”

My Paintbrush

paintbrush.png

I keep my paint brush with me
Wherever I may go,
In case I need to cover up
So the real me doesn’t show.
I’m so afraid to show you me,
Afraid of what you’ll do – that
You might laugh or say mean things.
I’m afraid I might lose you.

I’d like to remove all my paint coats
To show you the real, true me,
But I want you to try and understand,
I need you to accept what you see.
So if you’ll be patient and close your eyes,
I’ll strip off all my coats real slow.
Please understand how much it hurts
To let the real me show.

Now my coats are all stripped off.
I feel naked, bare and cold,
And if you still love me with all that you see,
You are my friend, pure as gold.
I need to save my paint brush, though,
And hold it in my hand,
I want to keep it handy
In case someone doesn’t understand.
So please protect me, my dear friend
And thanks for loving me true,
But please let me keep my paint brush with me
Until I love me, too.

Don’t Fall In Love

chain-of-hearts.jpg

Have you ever fallen in love,
But knew they did not care?
Have you ever felt like crying,
But knew you’d get nowhere?
Have you ever watched them walk away…
Not wanting them to go?
And whispered ‘I love you’ softly…
Not wanting them to know?
You cried all night in misery,
And almost went insane.
There’s nothing in this world
That causes so much pain.
If I could choose between love and death,
I think I’d rather die.
Love is fun, but it hurts too much.
And the price you pay is high.
So I say, don’t fall in love,
You’ll be hurt before it’s through
You see my friend, I ought to know,
I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU.

Naked

heartbroken.jpgI once knew a man. His eyes stared into my soul and the weakness sank into my body as if I’d lost all control. We’d lay there and watch the moon as he’d caress me with his warm fingertips and everything I’d ever known was forgotten. We talked about nothing…yet it meant so much. And his kiss went on forever…the taste of his sweetness on my lips. When he held me, I knew, he never wanted to let me go and I thought I’d never let him. After time…the moon grew dark and fell out of the sky and my tears grew an ocean of sorrow. I lost him.
