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.

MY HEART

My eyes
Belong to me
But
Have the sight of you in them.

My ears
Belong to me
But
Have the sound of you in them.

My nose
Belongs to me
But
Has the fragrance of you in it.

My lips
Belong to me
But
Have the flavor of you on them.

My love
And
My heart
Belong to you.

BLUE ME AWAY

Your blue eyes
Took my disappointment
Blue me away.

Your smile
Took my former rejection
Blue me away.

Your embrace
Took my sadness
Blue me away.

Your kiss
Took my small loss to forgotten
Blue me away.

Your heart
Took the brunt of my storms
Blue me away.

Your love
Took my everything
Blue me away.

I SAW

When
I first saw you
I saw
My life in front of me.

I saw
My reflection
In your eyes.

I saw
Kisses
Yet to be given.

Words
Yet to be spoken
On your lips.

I saw
Embraces
Yet to be felt
In your arms.

I saw
Love
Yet to bloom
In your heart.
