Moth flies swiftly by.

THE WHOLE SOUL

We'll never grow old;
The soul inside us both.
Forever and a day,
Come what may.
Our love will not efface,
Infinite surrounds our beauty.
We'll soar to parts unknown,
Intertwined to become one.
Fallen with the sun,
Our journey, just begun.
You were destined for me,
As I was destined for you.
We'll never grow old,
Oh, my serene soul.
Don't you see?
Have faith in me.
Intertwined are we,
And infinite surrounds our beauty...

LOOKING AT YOU…

Fifty years from now...
Will my heart flutter?
Will it skip a beat?
Will I lose my breath...when you enter the room?
I've never felt like this,
Never felt so much joy,
At the mere sight of someone.
This content I can't suppress...
You make the colors brighter,
The grass greener...
Rainy days are a welcome,
Your presence I adore.
You are the most beautiful being,
Inside and out...
Your aura, calm yet blissful.
I wish time would stand still... our time.
As time presses on,
And the wind of change appears,
May this one feeling remain true.
The love I feel inside...

When I look at you...

ACHING HEART

It will pass…
That ache within your heart,
Broken and shattered,
Will not last forever.

Fresh is the memory of goodbye,
Fate deals the hand.
To be judge and juror is in vain,
Destiny will indeed win…

Let time prevail my love,
Watch the sun rise and set.
Smell the roses, watch them bloom,
Let beauty efface the ugliness of your pain.

You will smile again,
You will love again.
Please allow fate to run its course,
Let destiny lead the way.

Life will become beautiful again..
As it has always been,
Let life be good to you.
Give yourself the gift of time…

EPIPHANY

PHOTOS FROM PIXABAY

Know you must leave the table,
When love is served no more.
When you hunger for affection,
Thirst for attention...
That bough you rested on,
Poised and asserted, has been broken.
Never to be mended again,
But your famished soul is reluctant.
How can you stay when the vessel is empty?
Permit dignity to win this battle.
Strength will creep in like a thief in the night,
Your love was never jealous; let life be.
You were meant to flourish,
May you never wither away waiting... yearning.
This table is bare as can be my friend,
Never come back here again.
Allow life's whirlwind to move you,
To a place where love is given freely.
Know you must leave the table,
When love is served no more.
