Speak To Me (Sonnet)

Speak to me, whisper the tenderest of words

My ears and heart art open to thy love

There is nothing more that needest be heard

This I do vow before God up above

 

My love, dearest love, thou art more precious than gold

Thy love and life cherished above my own

This I do promise from thy youth to age old

I’ll strive my whole life to have shown

 

In the stars it was written before time began

Two souls were destined to be one

Our walk through eternity wouldst be hand-in-hand

From dawn until life’s setting sun

 

I promise to thee my undying love, with God as my witness on high

Sweet and as pure as the snow white dove, committed to thee ‘til I die

A Kaleidoscope

A kaleidoscope

Colors of the rainbow

Ever changing.

Each twist a new pattern.

Pointed toward the light…

More vibrant are its wonders

While darkness…

Depresses its beauty

Leaving it muted and bland.

Such is the life of man.

Each moment…

A twist of the kaleidoscope

New and fresh.

Vibrant when lived in the light,

Depressing and deadly

When lived in darkness.

How easy it is to wallow,

Rotting from the blackness in life

If one is consumed,

When the light and love

Is well within reach

…If one chooses to grasp it.

Wouldst Thou Love Me Were I A Peasant (Sonnet)

Wouldst thou love me were I a peasant,

Owning little but what hangs upon my back.

I thinkest thou would not find this so pleasant,

Discarding me for all of this world that I lack.

 

Wouldst thou speaketh to me were I a leper,

Or ignore me whilst turning a blind eye.

I thinkest thou would prefer me fettered,

In shackles where none could see me cry.

 

Wouldst thou hold me if I were a poor wretch dying,

Alone and filthy on thy city thoroughfare.

I thinkest thou would leaveth me bloody and lying,

‘Til the ravens come to taketh their share.

 

Is compassion so hard for thee to perceive, casting feeling aside with nary a care.

Giveth from the heart and thou shalt conceive, a life full of blessing worthy to share.

How Long Should I Stay (Sonnet)

How long should I stay, it’s a question of time

As long as you need I suppose, if you must.

Do we really have a say, I say no to the climb

From birth to our death, in the Divine we must trust.

 

One minute or years, it’s out of our control

How long we will be on this earth, we don’t know.

Fear of our passing, certainly taking its toll

For when heaven comes calling, we must go.

 

Try as we might, we can’t stave our own ends

Rearing it’s head, unexpected most times.

This circle of life, no mere mortal can bend

As we wait for the hour, Reaper’s bell to chime.

 

Be thankful for what time we have in this life, fleeting it is to be certain,

Loving your children, mother, father, husband, wife, before you draw your last curtain.

I Give You My Heart

I give you my heart

Each beat saying I love you

In angelic tones

You hear them in me like song

With your ear pressed to my chest

Words would surely fail

They are but man’s invention

I–their apprentice

Unworthy to speak the heart

So the heart speaks for itself

Wisdom Of A Child

Wisdom of a child–

We do not start out hateful

This we have been taught.

Corrupted by narrow minds

Desiring to suppress.

To what end is this,

But to feed the frail ego

–A disgusting beast!

With claws and fangs it draws blood

Weaving a path called ruin.

Retaliation

Retaliation

Or at least the thought of it

Over little things

For this I have no excuse

Except for being human

I long to be more

Much more than this petty man

One that’s full of love

Unconsciously forgiving

WIth not one expectation

Even this is hard

This one solitary thing

Before the gauntlet

It is called being human

This one–I cannot escape
