Where did yesterday go?

apple-1034298_960_720

The screen alights

His zombie like face

Nothing more to life

Than time to waste

 

The phone she holds

Has become her only friend

The life they once knew

Has come to an end

 

Remnants of lost yesterday’s

Pass them by

And bittersweet memories

Have left with a sigh

 

Why did those happy years

Ever have to go

It seems there’s nobody left

Who will ever know

Relishing happiness

girl-1208307_960_720

Today I feel so happy

I’ve felt it all day long

The sun has been shinning

And nothing has gone wrong

Tomorrow may be different

Each day is unlike all the rest

But for now I’m relishing in happiness

Feeling loved and so very blessed

There’s someone I miss…

alone-279080_960_720

There’s someone I miss

Of this there’s no doubt

And my mind and my heart

Are wrestling it out

 

I sometimes feel lost

Without this person here

Wishing in my heart

That they were ever near

 

It’s troubling for sure

To feel this way

And it messes with my mind

Day after day

 

There’s nothing to be done

Just have to pray

That this ache in my heart

Will eventually go away

Thank you

book-1209805_960_720

Thank you for comforting me today

When nobody else would

I don’t always come to you first

And I really always should

 

You wrap your loving arms around me

Even when I don’t deserve a thing

I’m blessed by your amazing love

Which you forever bring

Do you…?

wheat-925760_960_720

Do you ever just wish

You had someone to talk to each and every day

Someone who would always be there

To chase those gray clouds and pesky cobwebs away

 

Do you ever just dream

Of someone who wouldn’t be afraid to hold your hand

Perhaps they’d fly away with you

To some distant faraway land

 

Do you ever just yearn

For someone to stay close by your side

To have someone to laugh with

And perhaps even for moments to cry

 

Do you ever just wonder

If someone like this really does exist

Seems like if they did

They’d be very hard to resist

There’s hope…

sunrise-1983740_960_720

There’s hope now

A peace settling in

I’m pulling it out

From somewhere deep within

Ideas are trickling

I’m feeling more assured

Silly old thoughts

Now seem so absurd

Faith and Trust

a-couple-of-sunset-2126416_960_720

I really wanted

To give up today

And for a moment I believed

It was the only way

I couldn’t see past

The end of my own nose

When suddenly a problem

Abruptly arose

And since then

It’s been eating me alive

I just don’t know how

I will ever survive

Yet days like these

Are the ones which make us stronger

So I will try my best

Not to dwell on this any longer

I must hold fast to my faith

For it’s where my heart resides

And trust that the good Lord

Will stay close by my side

Restless thoughts

womens-2303383_960_720

Cuddly cozy in my bed

Throw the covers over my head

Drifting off to sleep once more

Praying that he doesn’t snore

Vacant

pixabay24

It’s been awhile

Since I’ve put pen to paper

Seems the ink

Has begun to dry out

Trying in earnest to imitate

The stale blood in my veins

 

My heart no longer beats

The way it once did

Seems the song it used to play

Is lost in a place

Which I’m convinced

Never really existed

 

Beneath that old oak tree

On a moonlit night

Could only have been a dream

Since it’s become a mere vapor

Of a memory

And doesn’t stir my soul any longer

 

Vacant is the only sound remaining

Yet it courses vigorously

Through my veins

Solitude and emptiness

Cause me to question the residue

Which lingers faintly in the stagnant air

 

And like a handprint

On a mirror

The love I gave away

Was easily forgotten

And simply wiped away

When it was at long last remembered

The Absence of Motivation

girl-in-bed-1280x720

Oh motivation where have you gone?
Will you come back soon to where you belong?

Oh motivation where can you be?
Are you lost in the vastness of the wide open sea?

Oh motivation do you really exist?
I honestly need to know, I must insist!

Oh motivation will you give me a sign?
Can you please help me to free my mind?

Oh motivation what is your goal?
Are you lost in the mind of a tired old soul?

Oh motivation can you please tell me the truth?
Are you ever coming back to me, or have you moved to Duluth?

Oh motivation am I being too impatient?
What should I do, wait until I’m ancient?

Oh motivation are you really as important as you seem?
Are you really of any value, or just a fanciful dream?

Oh motivation are you really gone?
Don’t you know that without you I am not very strong?

Oh motivation can’t you see?
Without you, I am not being me.

Marriage

unnamed (1)edited

Nobody can frustrate me like you

You have no idea what you do

Throwing me into a daily tizzy

Simply makes me faint and dizzy

Round and round we go each day

Irritated by what the other has to say

And yet there’s love in the midst

It’s the only way we can coexist

Beyond the Beyond

cc69f79a8d040a07056b917384313f83

Beyond the meadow of hope

And even further than the valley of dreams

Lies a curious mountain range

Where things aren’t really as they seem

 

For in this faraway place

Unlike anywhere else at all

Live the strangest lot of creatures

Who all thrive under a waterfall

 

Each one is quite unique

Not like anything you’ve ever seen

And the colors they happen to come in

Range from pale pink to aquamarine

 

Some are extremely short

And others are outlandishly tall

And after having the pleasure of meeting them

I couldn’t help but love them all

 

Each one is excessively friendly

Genuinely loving and so very kind

And after visiting this extraordinary place

I could hardly bear to leave it behind

 

So if you ever get the chance to travel

Beyond the beyond you really must go

Take a left at the fork in the clouds

You’ll know you’re almost there when you see the rainbow

My one true love…

sky-476817_960_720

You’re with me through my darkest days

Even during times when nobody else stays

 

You give me hope when I want to give up

There’s nobody else who can measure up

 

You surround me with your daily presence

And remind me of your timeless acceptance

 

You bring to mind an extraordinary kind of love

Which is sent to me from heaven above

 

You’re all I need if truth be told

My one true love worth more than gold
