I had a conversation the other
Day with a stranger that took
To my heart the young lad and
I sat on some steps oblivious
To those going up and down
In seemingly such a hurry
He told me of his pain and
Frustration at the present and
Past and of those issues he
Felt he had to deal with in order
To move forward he introduced
Me to his recent wife whom
Had come looking for him and
Now stood nearby semi transfixed
Upon our scene and for a time
The world slowed down as our
Souls exchanged greetings and
Rejoiced in the recognition of
Another human being he reminded me so much of the
Children in life seeking guidance
Each in their own way every
Day is fathers day regardless
Of who’s is the child and while
I may never see him again my
Family has grown the strange
Thing is that despite not knowing
Him I felt safe enough to hug
Him for we all need to know we
Are loved including our imperfections and knowledge and
Experience amount to nothing
If not shared freely I wonder what
His name is…!

I had a friend call me to say
They were dying ;s they didn’t
Want to see me didn’t want
To be remembered as that
Shadow of self at times forgetting
Who they and we are
They wanted to say sorry
For the times we fell out and
Let me know that we were
Both so stupid to let so much
Time pass between our hugs
We arranged catchup time
To reason an catch two jokes
The call to say they had died
Was not a surprise nor were
The tears of sorry for our missed
Goodbye but that last gift of
Hope still remains in my heart
And surprisingly that is what
I remember the most that even
At the end of it all amongst
The madness even if only
By death there is something
Positive that we can give to
Others hope of a different
Tomorrow today

Not lost

Glazed are the eyes that
Have seen death waiting
And look back in remembrance
Of how things were yesterday
Glistening every now and
Again with the delights of
Memory and once again
Life appears and there is
The reflection of what used
To be you oh how I wait
Patiently between those
Hours just to see your smile
Once more and know just
For that second that all is
Not lost

That image that is part
Of thee when removed
It is difficult to see that
Which you pertain to be
Different from the rest
For does not your heart
Beat slowly to the wonders
Of life as you fixate upon
The distance travelled and
Miss the setting of the sun
As it reveals that which
Lays ahead
Lost is the wonder of now
As you gaze upon the future
Of what could be and restrict
All tomorrows rest easy now
For now it is easy to see your
Blindness of the world that
Could be released from mere
Restrictions

There be a god if just pure
Imagination it was that spurred
On the hearts desire to be
More than life’s beat keeping
Track of times elision as
Into the future we see that
Deception of death and set
About it’s ankles as fleas
Annoyed with their keeper
And giver of life the dog
And still we progress to that
Deception of acquisition
That would have our thoughts
Sleep soundly for another
Thousand years deaf to the
Cry’s for release and recognition

Hold not my heart guilty
For the transgressions of
Love for were we not
Once mortal before this
Hand of destruction brought
Us to conclusion of eternal
Betrayal of war pain and
Anger born anew with each
Setting of the moons glow
Upon the face of innocence
Hold not my mind responsible
For the fleeing of it’s cousin
Confusion as upon your face
It did gaze until the onset
Of blindness for this is now
All I see and once again
The sun chases the moon
Seeking forgiveness for the
Distance now between them
And the tide does rise and
Bow lowly accepting those
Tears of surrender and defeat

My eyes constantly feel
Like they have grit in from
That loss of regulatory sleep
And the depriving of ones
Time of imagination is causing
The mind and heart to imagine
Those things once distant
From reality becoming my new
Companions of disillusionment
As the shadows of the night
Do now guide the days awakening
Is it that time once again where
Madness is my friends upon
Whom I can depend not to
Abandon me in the wake of
Realities downfall for once
Again I bid my sanity fairwell

Visionary demons into sleep
Do creep seeking rest until
Time to meet like of it’s own
Kind within the darkness of
Minds acceptant of it’s will
While faces do melt to reveal
The true nature of it all for
Are we not the fear behind
The shadows of yesteryear
Run quickly now for time is
Near of a choosing to die or
Live in fear of ones self

The self that I am

Take me from myself
To be myself and see
The self that I am

Stop do you not see how
Vulnerable I am here naked
Before you and yet you look
So sternly as to cause me
Pain and humiliation in those
Deeper places than the mind
Are you not aware of the
Reflection of you in my eye
And me in your mind how
Can it be that you do not
Think and feel as I do
Stop do you not feel my love
For you and all that is

Did not dawns day catch
Us dreaming with our hearts
Sleeping to the sway of the
Nights imagination for those
Things thought of in day
And held at a distance as
The mind does sway this
An thata way to the passing
Inclination of an eye waiting
For rebirth in distant lands
And places that only sleep
Does know the way to and
Still our hearts and minds
Are open to that thing that
So many once knew as love

That echo of the mind
As to wilderness do find
That cave of solitude from
Which does protrude those
Darkest parts of me hidden
From natures light only
Able to roam free at night
In the stillness of the air
As babes do sleep in their
Mothers arms dreaming of
Those sweeter things life
Only full of charms of glory
And the brightness of day
For who dreams of the darkness
And those things it does
Take away in the twinkling
Of an eye yes it is I
Yes it is I

Let my heart stay open
Like morning springs
Overflown with laughter
And the joy it brings from
The faces of children
As to life they bring new
Meaning and understandings
Let my heart stay open
To you
