When Life Is

It says the sun is out and warm today.
The day is perfect day for getting out to play.
The grass is green and have bloomed.
The laughter is in the air.

In all the joy, in all the laughter the happiness blooms
We lay in the grass with the warmth of the sun on our face.
We invite our friends and family to share in this grand day.
We sit and snack on the food drinking lemonade.
Playing childhood games the whole day.

Everyone around seems to be doing the same.
No sadness, or crying, the perfect day of peace.
The cool air of evening creeps in the valley.
And people pack to go home.

Daily lives start over again with TV’s and radios.
Giving the days breaking stories.
No one seems to listens or care.
Life is back as were the day before.

As lights go out and covers pulled up.
Kisses exchanged, and adjustments in bed made.
Eyes close for the night is still young and work will come early.

Suddenly eyes open and in the darkness,
The white ceiling seems to speak.
The voice so clear. Never has it ever said something so profound.

“Jesus Wept”

Passing Words

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

“If time should pass.
And this world should end.
If life should go away.
And we never meet again.

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

If we never meet before that day.
And our time really passes away.
Remember me for who I am.
Not for what I use to be.

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

“Know I loved you then and love you now.
Know my love never died.
Know I wanted your forgiveness.
Know I am but a faulty man.

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

I am sorry for then.
I am sorry for now.
I am sorry for the hurt.
I am sorry for the mistake.” 

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

You are gone now.
I will never say these words to you.
My heart hurts from the pain.
Your passing still burning in my soul.

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

If we meet again, will you?
If by chance we pass will you?
If you see me will you?
If I look at you again will you?”

Speak to me!
Look at me!
Hold me!
Love me!

” All of these will you?
All of these will?

All of these?
All of?
All?
Will you?

Again

Feeling You Again

It never changes.
It is always there.
It does not speak.
Nor does it listen.

It came to me one night.
In a dream world fill with colors.
Every detail was full of brightness.
It filled the room.

Out of the brilliance you stepped out.
Your long flowing brown hair
Touching your shoulders ever so gently.
Your eyes glowing with passion.

My eyes opened and in the darkness.
I believe you were standing there.
Smiling at me without a word.
As fast as you appeared you disappeared.

A dream from long ago.
A thought of what was once ours.
The smells, the touches.
The love we shared.

It never changes.
It is always there.
It does not speak.
Nor does it listen.

And then we wake up.
