Where Is God?

The
Sun came up
You saw it
There is God.

The
Rooster did crow
You heard it
There is God.

The
Coffee is brewing
You smell it
There is God.

Breakfast
Is ready
You taste it
There is God.

You walk outside
To a warm breeze
Touching your face
There is God.

The
Moon and stars
Rise in the night
There is God.

LEFT HANDED

If
My eyes
Are taken
From me.

I
Can still
See you
Through my mind’s eye.

If
My heart and breath
Are taken
From me.

I
Can still
Breathe with you
Because I gave you my heart.

I
Could still
Hold
You.

If
I was
Left
Handed.

PARALLEL REALITY

Your
Birth name
Was
George.

Later
Changed
To Mickey
Honoring your mother’s wishes.

My
Dad’s
Name
Was George.

You
And
My dad
Share
The same age.

Your
Sister
And
One of dad’s
Share the same age.

Your cousin
And
I
Have the same
First and middle names.

You
And
I
Play
The same instrument.

Neither
Of
Us
Can read
A note.

Maybe
I
Could have been
As good as
You.

Except
I
Didn’t
Want
To practice.

I
Love
You
And
You love me.

I
Know
Because
You
Told me so.

Love being
The best part
Of
Our
Parallel Reality.

THE CLOUDS CRY

When
Thoughts
Are dark.

When
Hope
Is lost.

When
Dreams
Turn to nightmares.

When
Joy
Is just a name.

When
Soul and spirit
Are cracked.

When
Heart
Broken.

When
Peace
Is shattered.

The
Clouds
Cry.

THESE SHOES

These shoes
Have carried
Tears
For people
Known
Unknown.

These shoes
Have carried
Prayers
For people
Known
Unknown.

These shoes
Have carried
A lifelong
Physical challenge
Of their owner.

These shoes
Have carried
Daily
Struggles
Of their owner.

These shoes
May
Have
Covered
Your same ground.

These shoes
May
Have
Crossed
Your same path.

These shoes
You
May
Empathize
But
Not truly understand.

Unless
And
Until
You have walked in
These shoes.

Until
Then
Its me
Who fits
These shoes.
