I woke wondering
What should I do
I poured my coffee
And tied my shoes
I guess I will run
That is who I am
The beauty of the sunrise
My day begins again

The Sea and Me
I know that if God decided to return me back to earth to be
he would decide to return me back within the sea.
There where life is motion, smell, wind and air
then among the seashells you will find me there.
I will be mystery of change within the sand;
you will hear me as the water reaches the land.
Across the waves haunting seagulls will sing
The symphony of sounds I will bring.
Safely on the grass, spotted on the beach,
you will see my human steps, the lessons they teach.
Teaching although for a moment gone by,
the sounds of the ocean you will hear my sigh.
It is now your turn to capture the essence of you.
to share this essence ; your purpose be true.
Deep within life’s cycle with yesterdays and me,
I see a familiar reflection within the sea.
As it will mirror the beauty of what is left to say,
and look no further than your own gifted way.
Leaving behind with you the love that is divine,
this love that will transcend beyond the shore of time.

I Will Still Take Your Hand
You are the spring in my life.
Your words strong and bonding.
Gentle into the falling rain.
Soft sun strengthens the tulips
but just for a season in passing
they draw near to the heavens
knowing they are for a moment.
Love springs eternal
“I will still take your hand.”

I jaunt in the morning moon
My thoughts are miles away
I give up way too soon
So I can start my day
But I will always be
Jaunting again tomorrow .
