Death girdled

The innards of my soul

Tears pierced, fury bridled

Youth’s fool, hearts’ toll

 

The innards of my soul

Hope floundered, Grace grasped

Youth’s fool, hearts’ toll

Above your door, there is a task

 

Hope floundered, Grace grasped

Faded blue, trimmed yellow

Above your door, there is a task

Blood boiling as Othello

 

Faded blue, trimmed yellow

The artists’ hand must speak the heart

Blood boiling as Othello

Nature’s beauty will never part

 

The artists’ hand must speak the heart

Brilliant orange with streams of yellow, as chiffon

Nature’s beauty will never part

Beneath the horizon, a song of frisson

 

Brilliant orange with streams of yellow, as chiffon

Orbed fashions of beet juice red

Beneath the horizon, a song of frisson

A root grounded, wings spread

 

Orbed fashions of beet juice red

Merlot grapes upon the fringes

A root grounded, wings spread

A velvet cloak from within

 

Merlot grapes upon the fringes

Circular patterns are no more

A velvet cloak from within

Four letters over the door

 

Circular patterns are no more

One less, love lost

Four letters over the door

Wrongs placed upon the cross

 

One less, love lost

Isis, miracle of life

Wrongs placed upon the cross

To live in peace, not in strife

 

Isis, miracle of life

City scenes within her name

To live in peace, not in strife

Only one remains unstained

 

City scenes within her name

London, Paris, Venice, all tainted

Only one remains unstained

New Jerusalem holy, sainted

 

London, Paris, Venice, all tainted

Tears pierced, fury bridled

New Jerusalem holy, sainted

Death girdled

Without you.

loneliness

within

has claimed me

completely

which helps

this pen

to pour its ink

upon these

pages

words from a wounded heart

which has realized

the truth

of the years

which do not lie

the dreams of a soul

which has learned

to appreciate

Life size statue of a woman at Oak Grove Cemetery in La Crosse, Wisconsin

the bitterness

of the tears

which stain

my cheeks

Tis true

we lie our heads

down to sleep

under the same moon

Tis true

the sun rises

each morning

kissing the dew away

every day

without you

My Angel

 Blue eyes

and hazel

A legacy of love born

From out of youth’s devotion

 Parted ways cause

Lonely days

Sharing now

the

Lingering beauty of the heavens

the

Longing hope of our dreams

and the

Splendid memories of our first

Starry night

 The beauty of two intertwined

In my mind

and

Forever in heaven

 My Angel 

 

Heaven Can Wait

Dedicated to our nation as we struggle with the aftermath of tragedy and death experienced in Tucson, Arizona, on Saturday, January 8, 2011. May our prayers and thoughts be turned toward our Maker for all who are suffering the loss of those they so dearly loved and those that are in need of healing.

My wounds are deep

Their pain intense

So much that

My flesh is weak and frail

Faltering within lies my voice

Silent is my prayer

Hope on. Hope ever.

His presence hovers over me

He heals my broken heart

My Father carries my sorrows

He restores my soul

I look to the heavens

I know where my help comes from

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

Tearful eyes

a sad view

You cannot be found

true as I

do miss you

through this lonely town

My heart sighs

it cries too

tears fall to the ground

Were they lies told by you?

Dreams of love made sound?

truth confides

tears soak through

dreams as they fall down

Are your eyes tearful too?

Lost the heroes crown?

Agonize

Pain is true

Hiding in the crowd

I kiss you

Yet this life I am living

is vacant of your presence

Does loneliness cause tears to flow in your most secret hiding place?

I see you

There are times when

You are with me all day

Yet no other soul can

lay their eyes upon you

Who has captured your attention?

I feel your warmth

You are so close to me

Your breath on my skin

But I can’t touch you

Please, come close.

I drink in your love

I thirst for you

Yet I have no cup

Are you thirsty?

I cherish your thoughts

I long to hear more

I would love to grant your

most cherished wish

Who do you hold close to your heart?

I love the smell of your skin

Remembering

is all I have

Do you remember?

I sleep in your arms

In my dreams

Are you dreaming?

I often go to the

deep crevices

of my Heart

Mind

and Soul

where one treasures

Memories

Thoughts

and Moments

to find you

to cherish the Beauty

that

at one time

sustained

who we were

to the other

a blanket of

Hope

and Prayers

uttered with tears

are all I have

to comfort my Misery

to ease the burden

of the Loneliness lurking

in every waking moment

and daring to captivate

my

dreams

each

night

is languishing

the Bitterness

I miss you

imploringly

yet I am

tenaciously

cleaving to

the Sweetness

I love you

continually
