Poem of Dreaming

Some may say she’s perfect
She’ll tell you otherwise
Aware that she has faults
There’s no need for disguise

Her shy smile and brown eyes
Each melt my heart away
Plus, an inner beauty
She’s more than just okay

The time to share is now
While in the Spring of life
And were my wish fulfilled
Come Fall, she’d be my wife

Yes, I know I’m dreaming
Though hope to see the light
Thinking of her daily
And wanting what feels right

Of course, a few things would need to change. For starters, it certainly would be nice if she’d remove my name from being blacklisted on her site at WordPress. It would also be charitable if my emails were no longer filtered into her trash bin. And, on occasion, she could use Twitter to read some of the messages & comments I’ve left for her. Perhaps, as an act of goodwill, she might like a single post on my web site…sometime. Lastly, if she would refrain from associating my name with the term ‘devil’ – I think that would be helpful, too. Barring these few exceptions, the future looks bright!!!

Yes, I know I’m dreaming.

Poem of Togetherness

Her Hand In Mine

If I reached out and took your hand,
Would you take it back or squeeze?

Would you tell me where I could go,
Or move closer, as you please?

If the former,
Then please explain –
My heart is in your hand.

If the latter,
No need to talk –
Your wish is my command.

I want to make things right with you,
And drift into the night.
For both to share our love as one,
Until the morning light.

Words Matter

Time Will Tell…

So high,
The cost of weak moments.

So low,
Introspection ensues.

Where is the middle ground,
When there’s just too much to lose?

Please tell her I care,
When no words make a sound.

When night comes too early,
And loneliness abounds.

Friendship,
I’d like to stay with you.

Forgiveness,
Is something you can do.

The rest is a dream,
And it’s not yet complete.

Hoping you read this,
Sent by email and tweet.
