read when life is tough
remember that the sun
has never failed to rise,
even after
the grayest
of days,
and the stormiest
of nights.

Listen To The Whisper
Listen To The Whisper Of The Eternal Wind
As It Gently Touches Your Ear;
Guiding You Through The Forest Of Life
Your Friend; Your Companion; Your Seer.
Listen To The Whisper Of Verdant Leaves
Adorning The Sentinels Of Earth;
Silently Watching The Passing Of Time
Its Beauty The Blessing Of Birth.
Listen To The Whisper Within The Heart
Where Soft Emotions Caress Its Beat;
Let Its Wisdom Flow Right Over Your Soul
And Dormant Love It Will Entreat.
Listen To The Whisper, All Three Of Them
Embrace And  Entwine Deep Within;
And When They Merge Within Your Soul
A New Pathway You Will Begin

THE BUTTERFLY WITH NO NAME
Emotions Flowed Like A Raging Fire
As I watched The Birth Of Dawn
Softness And Beauty Of Stars Had Past
My Heart Still Heavy And Forlorn
My Spirit Was Ebbing I was About To Go
When Something Caught My Eye
A Solitary Cloud So Pure And White
Appeared From Way Up High
My Eyes Now Ember With Rising Sun
Saw An Amazing Sight
Within Its Fleece A Golden Glow
And A Butterfly Took Flight
Such Beauty I Had Never Seen
It Sat Upon My Hand
And Said To Me In A Voice So Soft
I Was A Spirit Of The Lamb
My Soul Was Open My Heart Poured Forth
It Listened With Silent Embrace
And When I Had Finished It Smiled At Me
With Serenity, Peace And Grace
Moments Of Silence As We Shared The Dawn
Then It Whispered It Was Time To Part
And As It Began To Fly Away
A Sudden Lightness Filled My Heart
I Watched In Joy As My Newfound Friend
Returned From Whence It Came
My Fears And Sorrows All Had Been Taken
By The Butterfly With No Name
Had I Seen The Truth Within The Cloud
I Would Have Witnessed A Wondrous Sight

A HUG IS ALL YOU'LL NEED TO SAY
If There's Someone You Love, Someone You've Wronged
And You Don't Know What To Say -
Don't Shrug Your Shoulders, Giving Up Hope
Leaving It For Another Day
For Life's Wake Is Short, Don't You Know
There May Be No Words To Hear -
As You Place The Flowers, Shed Your Tears
Upon The Earth Holding Someone So Dear
Your Mind In A Daze, Emotions On Fire
Wishing You Could Turn Back Time -
As You Gaze Upon A Loved Ones Grave
Memories Of When Everything Was Fine
If There's Someone You Love, Someone You've Wronged
Don't Leave It For Another Day -
With Love In Your Heart, Hug Them Close
It's All The Words You'll Need To Say

If We Would Only Love
If We Would Only Love As HE Wants Us To
Our Spirits Would Soar Our Souls Renew
Then Mankind Would See A Better Life
Void Of Evil Greed And Strife
The World Would Be A Beautiful Place To Live
If We Would Only Learn To Give
Instead We Take And Desire Of Things
Not Blessed By HIM Who Love Did Bring
HE Came And Said My Brother Man
Accept This Gift From The Golden Lamb
Some Did Listen To The Words HE Said
Others Did Laugh And Turned Their Head
As They Nailed HIM To A Cross Of Wood
Still HE Blessed Them As Only HE Could
The Years Have Passed Since That Holy Day
When HE Walked The Earth Taking Sin Away
If We Would Only Love As HE Wants Us To
Then Our Spirits Would Soar Our Souls Renew

THE ONLY HOPE NOW
Once There Was Love; Once There Was Joy
Emotions Now Shattered Like An Old Broken Toy
Confused And Dazed, Wondering Why
Soul In A Turmoil Just Wishing To Die
The Brightest Day Now Shadows Of Night
Infecting The Heart So It Sees No Light
Thoughts Entombed By What's Been Said
A Loved One Lost At Twilights Ebb
Guided By One Whose Words They Believe
Not Seeing The Venom That Flowed To Deceive
The Only Hope Now Is To Pray To The Light
To Guide Them Back To All That Is Right.

FOLLOW THE CHILD
Natures Tears Splash To The Earth
To Flowers And Trees They Offer Birth
Soil Caress The Warmth Of The Sun
Life's Mysteries Which Gaia Has Won
Creation Stirs Behind The Veil Of Time
Bringing Forth A New Era That Of Mankind
Though But An Ember In Natures Fires
None Has Such Strange Whims And Desires
The Candle Flickers, The Flame Dies
The Innocent Child Softly Sighs
Knowing No Shadows In Life's Light
Free From The Darkness Of Human Plight
Delicate In Thought Like Threads Of Silk
Weaved And Adorned With Gaia's Milk
Purity Of Spirit Is What Was Meant To Be
And Such A Child Shall Live For Eternity

Lost Above The Stars.
Shining through the forsaken light
I struggle to find what is mine,
Something I lost so long before
Above the sky near the broken door.
I'm walking through the skies so high,
I fear that I will fade in time.
The world dies before my crimson eyes
As I try so hard to gain my sight,
I feel its time to say goodbye
Looking up at the forsaken skies.
I squint my eyes 'cause it's so bright,
I look away with a grieving sigh.
I look at you
Now you look at me,
The plethora of clouds are meant to be.
The stars are here
They will shine on me,
I'll be in heaven
While you search for me.

Silly Little Candle
There, the candle is lit
A small flame in a darkened room
Fighting against the dusk
Of tomorrow obscurity's bloom
So minuscule, I see you
Powerless, more or less
What can you do little one?
Of that light that will soon… soon
Finish its tune.
Don't be afraid, my dear
Everything is suddenly clear
So worried you are, I'll be back for you
Your flame is still bright, so is the darkness surrounding you.
It won't struggle against the time. The clock stops spinning…
So lonely goes the solemn tear
I fear my light will soon…soon.
Die out.
Long nights, silenced dear one
Awaiting the return of one thee
Cold? How's the weather? ''Can you see clearly in the dim?''
Perhaps I could see, if only you'd let me
Flame flame,
Am I still sane?
Can I wait for you further as my flame burns out?
Or perhaps was I meant to only be your light?
Your warmth, your way, but will you keep me?
There's only a certain amount of time that a candle can be lit…
Whether it is me, little as I am, who you wa

Saving Me From Myself
"It's in these tangled thoughts
I swear", I holler as I dig.
It was here, everything I wanted to say.
My words never form fast enough
Then the thought slips away.
Please tell me that you'll stay.
Be patient as I try to sort things out.
Give me a minute before I start.
Or it will all be a rushed ramble
Were nothing at all makes sense.
Please give me a moment because,
I had a list of things to say.
Now-a-days it seems as if,
If I don't write it down
the thoughts and words accompanying them
will flee.
Faster than wild birds set free.
I never know how to start.
I tip toe around you,
Because I don't know what to say.
How to not upset you.
But I can't do that,
because I promised to tell the truth.
But you don't want to hear me
Because it tears you up inside
And I can understand but I need
Someone to listen, please just listen.
But when I find you my audience
I don't know where to go
Because as I mentally pick up
Each thread of thought
And follow it through to your reaction
I see something ug
