Lost Summers

October 12, 2017

what happened to days
of carefree smiles
tossed hair
and forgotten classes
time spent together
loving and losing
and not really caring
who wasn’t there
for all that mattered
was those who were.

Brick by Brick
You build a wall
Beyond the realm
Of where I fell
Trapped away
In this courtyard
Of pain
Not sure how
You got me here
Brick on brick
It keeps going up
Until the end
It will erupt

Any other way

Sometimes I think
I’m all alone
Sometimes I think
What have I done
To disserve you;
Someone so kind
And so sure in her way
So happy to be there
To comfort and say
All is alright
And it is okay
You wouldn’t have me
Any other way

My Dear

February 15, 2016

A smile slips
From lips to lips
Reminding us
Of sinking ships

Emotions roar
And rear their heads
A fleeting smile
Found in bed

Forgetting now
What could be wrong
Remembering to
Stay real strong

It’s easily done
With you right here
Keeping me happy
And being a dear

Getting Old

December 18, 2015

It’s been so long
But to meet again
And see the change
Is truly amazing
How much we age
How much we moved
How far we’ve come
Since kids in the basement
Arguing over what song
To download off Napster
To adults standing in the halls
Decide when to invest and divest
Really puts life in perspective

A night in
With your body
Pressed to mine
Makes me
Realize how lucky
I really am

To a True Friend

April 19, 2015

Thoughts flowing freely
Through a tired brain,
Every loop they take
Your face is there,
Your touch,
Your hair.
God, it’s consumed me;
My every breath
Quivers out,
Thoughts of you
Remove all doubt.
Just wanting to be,
To see, to know:
That you’ll be there
For every moment
Now and to the end.
I see you
As a dearest friend,
A lover,
A partner,
And much more
Than a means to an end.
You make words escape me;
You consume my thoughts
Waking or not;
You have earned my trust,
My respect,
My love,
And my passion.
You have shown me
That there is more
Than lustful infractions.
There is sharing,
Caring, humour, and love.
But most of all
You help me to grow,
Show me there are
So many things
I have yet to know.
In all these tired
And passionate lines
I want you to know
You are always on my mind.
