I Whisper To The Wind

I whisper to the wind
and hope she carries
my words to your far-off ear.
I whisper all the things
you used to love to hear.
We are so distant now
We could be oceans apart.
I wish I had you back
here in my arms

I listen to the wind
and she reminds me
of how we used to lay on the beach at night
watching the moon sparkle on the water
We were alone
Alone with each grain of sand
Alone with each twinkling star
Alone with the soft song of the sea
as the wind sang in joy for us
Natures complete unity

I whisper to the wind
but the hour-glass has turned
and the wind is singing a different song
Now I am alone
Alone with each falling grain of sand
Alone with each blue twinkling star
Alone with the tired song of the sea
as I whisper to the wind
even though you are far-off
and I know
my voice will fall on dead ears

Just So I Can Be With You

You once opened up
the door to my heart.
Sometimes I still see you
in my dreams
sometimes we make love
the most wonderful sex
just as it used to be.
Other times
we just lay in bed
holding one another
Sharing how we’ve both
missed these moments.
I question myself, I say
“Is this a dream?
Am I asleep?
No way!
This is too real
too vivid”
Then I wake up
And I feel a pain
like a small knife
piercing my heart
It hurts
not like it used to
but it hurts
as the memories
and emotions come
flooding back.
Sometimes the gods
can be so cruel.
After a moment or two
I fight
to get back to sleep
just so I can be with you
for a little longer

The Wind That Carries Our Love

I gaze towards the crystal moon
She rests among the diamond stars
I hear my heart pound like thunder in the silent night

Two silver clouds dance as one
Dance high above our heads
Reflecting in her eyes
Reflecting in my heart

A stream of energy bursts
Like lightning, through my body
As her white hand caresses my cheek

No earthly thing is as soft as her velvet skin
Her silk hair waves in the smooth breeze
Waves like the branches of the young oak
Beneath which our lips first met
Beneath which our passions first danced

The night wind still sways
Between the leaves of that same oak
Just as it did back then
During those early kisses
Still sings
And carries our love to no end

An old mans tale

I saw people divided
Old enemies fight

I saw the blast of a bomb
In the dead of night

I saw two towers crumble
To nothing but dust

I saw nations invaded
For reasons unjust

I saw weapons being bought
By terrorist groups

I saw them being sold by
American troops

I saw the floods approaching
And no one prepared

I saw good spirits live rough
And still no one cared

I saw some MPs whisper
Of crisis to come

I saw many souls shouting
But nothing get done

I saw money destroy men
The strong and the meek

I saw two food banks open
At least, every week!

I saw the tears of mothers
And heard fathers cries

I saw innocent blood flow
And covered by lies

Little showers

I see tears trickle
         Down your cheeks
                     Like raindrops on
                             My window
I’ll keep them for
               A million weeks
                    And hope they form
                             A rainbow

And if the sunshine
            Soon appears
                      A rainbow soon
                          Will follow

To wash away all
                Of those fears
                      And bring a clear

I dream I am a bird

I dream I am a bird in flight
It’s a cold windy winter night
I twizzle and twirl left and right
And fight the winds with all my might
Flying in the darkness

I hear the hooting of an owl
A hungry wolf is on the prowl
Stops a second, cries out a howl
Causing a nearby dog to growl
Crying in the darkness

The moonlight glistens down below
Off the river covered in snow
And gives the white a gentle glow
While tall trees sway as soft winds blow
Dancing in the darkness

Then freedom rests beneath my wings
As the huge church bell loudly rings
And snowflakes fall on naked trees
As I spring through them in the breeze
Glancing through the darkness
