Crazy Tryin’

When Willie sang he was crazy for tryin’,I always thought he was lyin’,Cause for her I’d go wherever the wind blows. And here I am, without you, and I’m feelin’ so blue,But now tryin’s just gettin’ too old. Oh I’ll go on for awhile,Just to see that sweet smile,I’ll keep tryin’ and cryin’ for you.

A Letter to You, in Care of the Universe

You can be willing to give someone the whole world. Every last bit of yourself, all your love and happiness you wish so fiercely to offer them. You’d use every last hour of daylight and still turn on the lamp at night to stay up and think of what you could possibly do or say….

What’s Lost

Sometimes you think, “This could never end.” Other times it’s, “What could possibly come between this? Nothing will ever split this up.” And then the day comes and it’s just over. That thing you believed would go on forever and could never be broken- yet right before your eyes that very thing has ended. You…

One Last Dance

One last dance to share, between you and I. But it won’t be in a ballroom, rather under a starlit sky. I’ll lead you through the finest waltz I can muster, She’ll follow my steps, because I know I can trust her. A caper here, a gambol next- or we can can keep it simple,…

A Splash Of Sun

When life seemed dull and full of gray, she came along and brought me better days. I was filled with warmth but it wasn’t the sun’s- The feeling that made me realize you were the one. But what happens next neither me nor you could know, we got older, the warmth faded, and apart we…

One Year On WordPress Anniversary

It makes me happy to see that I have stuck with this, and it has helped lead me to discover that writing truly is my passion. Today I do not have a poem for you, but instead something I read and my thoughts about it. This comes from the book Direct Truth by Kapil Gupta. Although…

In Search of Love

I’ve gazed at the sky for countless nights, seen all its wonders, when every star was in sight. And I’ve traveled the world, from one side to the other. I’ve seen this great Earth, and she’s truly our mother. Yes I’ve set sail on the oceans, through calm seas and storm. And when it all…

A Drifting Image

I wonder, from time to time, If I still happen to cross your mind? Because I have not forgotten you, and in my head your face often comes to view. Every time I hear the sirens in my city, I hope that no harm has come to you, pretty. And that would seem a foolish…

Heart of Gold

Like the first Spring days after the long Winter, you warmed my heart which had been so cold. And some days it had seemed I might always remain bitter, but that all changed when I felt your heart of gold. It warmed me from the inside, all the way out, and from then on I…

The Jar On The Highest Shelf

My love is only for you and no one else, so when you gave it back- I put it in a jar on my highest shelf. I’d look at it each day and admire what we had, and when I thought of the happy times I was never too sad. But every now and again,…
