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.

THE DAY AFTER NEVER

When
Will I stop
Thinking of you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Forgetting you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Crying for you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Missing you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Loving you?
The day after never.

GUILTY

You loved me
But
You loved someone else more
I could see it.

So I
Unlaced my fingers
From your hand
Setting you free.

Emotionally
I didn’t let go
Never have
Never will.

Vows
Were exchanged
And
Promises made.

Time
Brought
Hurting
Things beyond human control.

If
Only
I had chosen
Another path.

Now
I
Feel
Guilty.

THE EMPTY CHAIR

Last night
Your chair was empty
But
Happiness
Sat in it’s place.

I saw eyes
Of darkness, disappear
Walls
Slowly coming down
Through tears of joy.

I always knew
You were special
Convincing you
Was
The hardest thing.

After many years
My prayers
Have been answered
You found
True love again.

These words
Come
With my love
From
An empty chair.

ONCE UPON A TIM

Girl
Meets boy
A preacher’s son.

Boy
Accepts
All, of girl.

Girl
Attaches easily
Dog loyal.

Two
Years
Later.

Boy
Returns
To home state.

Girl
Crying
In selfish tears.

Pain
Had
To go somewhere.

Words
Started
Coming.

Boy
If you only knew
What you done.

Once
Upon
A Tim.

MY RAIN

In my rain
You are
My safety.

In my rain
You are
My protection.

In my rain
You remind me
I am wanted.

In my rain
You remind me
I am needed.

In my rain
You remind me
I am loved.

In my rain
You give me
A place to belong.

KNOW, THAT

Late one night
Or
Early morning
My telephone
Rang.

Someone
Unknown
On the other end
Told me
To leave you be.

Just because
You don’t hear from me
Doesn’t mean
I don’t want to be heard
Know, that.

Just because
You don’t see me cry
Doesn’t mean
I don’t
Know, that.

Just because
You may think, I don’t miss you
Doesn’t mean
I don’t
Know, that.

Just because
You may think, I don’t love you
Doesn’t mean
I don’t
Know, that.
