Nights Like These

Nights Like These long poem

Well and I seem to get this way from time to time
Lost in a memory of someone who used to be mine
I was a fool to get this way, will this heartache ever
Go away…
NIGHTS LIKE THESE I wish you were here holding me
Close and wiping away all these tears…
NIGHTS LIKE THESE I’d give anything to hear your
Voice again and to kiss your sweet lips, to feel your
Hands on my skin but I’m beginning to wonder now if
You ever did love me; I try to tell myself you’ll be sorry
You ever left me sad and lonely in the shadow of
Candlelight and NIGHTS LIKE THESE…
But I can’t help myself from going down memory lane
Again and all those old photographs and remembering
All the wild and crazy things we used to do, I can’t
Believe it’s over and you have somebody new, I don’t
Believe it, it just can’t be true ‘cuz you’re still the ruler
Of my heart, they say if you loved somebody once
You’ll always love them even though you’ve made it
Clear we need some time apart; I’ll never stop loving you
Call me a fool but I’ll never love anyone never again
As much as I love you…
And on NIGHTS LIKE THESE I wish you were here
Holding me close and wiping away all my tears, I’m
Nothing without you but a ghost in the shadow of
Candlelight, so, so very sad and lonely especially on

The graceful dance of butterfly wings, The budding romance attending Spring — The morning melody of birds who sing, The opportunities each new day brings — The serene swaying of porch swings, The relaxing splashing of gentle rain — Wedding

Just Like A Pearl

Just Like A Pearl short poem

Truth you seek, Character you weave The beauty you perceive, with the eyes austerely. Respect you earn, sacrifice and yearn Leaders you breed, Monarch unveiled. Mother, sister, lover or daughter The legacy you leave of your charismatic nature and affection

You ask about these tears These tears I cry…. Rolling down my face With every heave and sigh For a dying world Drowning in misery And hate ……These tears I cry For the lonely, The dying and The socially displaced
