What Words Can I find

For years I have written my heart felt thoughts. Everyday I would record in poetry my most inner thoughts….

There were so many feelings that needed voice and writing filled those  needs. 

Hopes of a Better Tomorrow

Each day is a piece of the promise that nurtures my soul; That welcomes my dreams as each unfold. Each day is a step forward into a tomorrow Void of heartache, and emptied of sorrow. Each day is the beginning of the end A drawing near to where I long to be, Yet, where I have always been. Each day is a journey taking me away from yesterday- Tempting my heart to follow love’s way. For, a day without love is a day taken for granted along life’s way. Make the day your own Live in the day, Love in the day, And cherish each day Until the day is gone. For, all we have is our today Filled with the hopes of another tomorrow…. That we cannot give away And no one can ever borrow. 11-06-02

Forever And A Day

Not even death can keep us apart Forever and a day Our love shall stay in our hearts To keep me warm until Heaven’s door opens wide And my eyes behold the face of the beautiful Angel inside Who even in death never left my heart Not for even one moment ~ Has our hearts ever been a part……. Our love has always been the bridge to our souls. Forever and a day is a long -long time But our love knows not time And our hearts knows no distance beyond each other. 11-29-02

Let Each Moment Count

There are individual human beings in this world Who believe in nothing Who if given the chance would destroy everything. So, what are the rest of us to do? This generation will pass and all that shall be left is another memory worth remembering…….. For, mankind learns from the successes and the failures of those who came before them. And through the weaknesses of the past Mankind shall grow in understanding and mankind’s strengths shall be found in individual human compassion. We are but here for a time Let each moment count in the future that is to come. For, mankind is but the threads that bind yesterday with tomorrow… Let us with a caring heart determine ourselves to leave no sorrow for those in the distant tomorrow. 10-27-02

Care Enough To Keep On Trying

It would be so easy to throw my hands up in the air and say, ” I have had enough! I no longer care.” But I do care! I care enough to keep on trying! When I know that the odds of making it through, another low point in my life, are against me…… I take a deep breath, and stop for a moment to ponder all the other hard times in my life when I left things in God’s Hands and each time that I did ~ how God always helped me through. Yes, it would be much easier to give up in times of despair, t urn my back on everything-and live life without a care….. But life just doesn’t work that way-we live and die a little every day. And the only thing that we can do, and still live with ourselves, is do the best we can along life’s way.              10-27-02

  Hard Times Are A Test Of Faith

Trust in the Lord, when things get you down Because one’s faith is tested everyday…. Believe with all your heart that God knows Your every need- and hold to the faith that God will make a way.

Trust in the Lord, with all of your heart What others believe has nothing to do with you Cling to your faith like a child clinging to his Father’s coattail…… following his father’s ways.

When the day is done be thankful for the time In the day, that you had with those you love. Be Faithful to your faith…… and when you lay down At night- leave no bitterness between loved one Or friend -take steps to set things right- then Count your blessing at the end of the day.

Trust in the Lord, when things get you down Because one’s faith is tested everyday…. Believe with all your heart that God knows Your every need- and hold to the faith that God will make a way.  

Above The Lonely Sea

The icy wind chilled me to the bone as I stood looking out over the ocean, alone- except for your memory reflecting back at me, from a million twinkling stars, far above the lonely sea.  

Hold Me Close To Your Heart

My love, as I set here thinking of how much I love you, A warmth fills me from head to toe, through and through; And with my heart so filled with the warmth of our love, I long for you. I need you so. I need to feel your arms around Me; your touch..your feel.. I need to feel at peace with the World and myself, again. The way you always make me feel. By Heartsong

Standing in the Dark

The sun may shine darkness, instead of daylight ~ in your time of pain. and your days may be filled with tears; but in the darkness an angel waits for you to accept you have within you the strength you need to light up the darkness you are living in; if only you can find the faith (standing in the dark) to try again.

None can know your heartache; none can know your fears compounded throughout the lonely years except the one who knows you the best the one whose been there for you ~through every test. None can know what dreams lay wasting away next to the angel you carry inside your heart Because none knows the inner you (life’s inner part)

None can know how you feel, though they can dry your tears. except the one who lives, a lamp of light, shining through the darkness to guide your way in the night.

The sun may shine darkness, instead of daylight ~ in your time of pain. and your days may be filled with tears; but in the darkness an angel waits for you to accept you have within you the strength you need to light up up the darkness you are living in; if only you can find the faith (standing in the dark) to try again.
