Faraway From Me

Faraway From Me

Just like that you left

and I keep searching

looking for you

searching for that land

imagining that world

staring in the distance

where you’ve gone

and then I wonder to myself

if it’s faraway.

Is it far across the sea?

or is it up above the galaxy?

to know your secret place

to see your missing face

would be so heavenly to me

but you have gone

gone

faraway from me…

(In remembrance of my brother, may his soul RIP)

Please read Rain Shall Fall – part 1 here

Then gently you will lift me up

and carry me into nature

and under the moonlight

you will lay me down gently

on the earth from which you were molded.

Your eyes will be feasted upon my beauty

and you will want to bite me Continue reading Rain Shall Fall – part 2

Love—the ability
to accept another
just as he is.

Acceptance, key to serenity
C ompassion makes acceptance possible
C aring includes sharing
E ach person is part of the whole
P unish not with your silence
T hankfulness makes love grow
A ccept differences
N othing is more important than love
C herish all our Creator has made
Each one needs and deserves our love

IF THERE WAS A LOT MORE LOVE IN THE WORLD

Here is a beautiful and inspiring poem from Keith about love in the world. It’s a very interesting read. Please check it out!

IF THERE WAS A LOT MORE LOVE IN THE WORLD

Dirty looks from those as we pass them by along the road,

See their faces as in the stores their time is rushed, smiles not.

Things are much too fast today, watches are stared at, tick! tick!

Everyone is running for cover, today is not seen, tomorrow a worry.

Schemes to make a dollar, on the go with cell phone attached to an ear,

Neighbors are barely known anymore, do we even know of their names?

There is less love for neighbor and society, we walk our own way,

If there was a lot more love in the world then peace may out do war any way.

Kiss Of Life

Author: Demarggio Rose

Salted wounds, pain falling from her eyes

She uses a blade to cover all her pain and lies

She cries “save me!” from the inside

She hangs by a thread, attached to her soul

She refrained from warmth to adapt to the cold

Driven fears leads her into darkness Continue reading Kiss Of Life

A Taste Of My Love

Share Love

I’m Broke…

SO

I borrowed a dollar

To give to the child with the runny nose

Who is crying in the street

Because he has nothing to eat

AND

I borrowed another dollar

To give to the homeless man

That has no pillow

Begging around the corner

THEN

One more dollar

To give to the mother

That can’t afford a doctor

For her child that has cancer

AND

The last dollar

I gave to the teenager

To feed her child

That has no father

YES

I know it’s not much

It was just a taste of my love

Now I’m smiling

And my heart is rejoicing

This Battered Suitcase

sunflower-1156539_1280

This battered suitcase of mine

Has withstand the test of time

Has visited cities and towns

And has definitely been up and down!

To some it may look simple

To others it may seem old and wrinkle

But this battered suitcase of mine

Compartments are well refine!

The compartment of joy, rejoices inside

Because it’s fill with ambition and pride

Love, the happy compartment

Doesn’t accepts any form of unplesantness!

This battered suitcase of mine

Has been tossed about

Pushed here and there

Thrown everywhere

But still it remains unbreakable

And that’s quite remarkable!

Echoes of Your Love

 

BedTimeEchoes

Baby please let me sleep;

Even for a minute….

Desirous thoughts of you are invading my pillow,

Taking me to a place of forbidden

Indulgence that….

Makes my heart trembles with every heartbeat…and make

Echoes of your love rings through my soul…
