The War

The Road Now

Desires filled with deception

Hidden locked away

How will you keep me

Until the next promise

Fades with an excuse

When I wake and ask why

Will you keep me

In a closet full of the skeletons of me

The Road Now

 

I wonder if you know what it is you do

I wait in the minutes that have past

I wonder if I do what I know

You move in the minutes to come

Twisted in timeless meanings

Meaningless to the time created

Telling myself it is not you

You telling me it is not me

Yet you and I are one

Dancing as if there is a meaning

Time has us never having time

What I know is not what I want to hear

What I hear is what I need to know

Left side says no

Right side says maybe

Confused middle of knowledge

Creates this wisdom

The pain of me is the pain of you

The pain in you is not the pain from me

The pain in me is the pain from me to you

The pain from you in me is from you

The disguise of happiness is pain

The pain of the disguise

Leaves me to live inside me

While you live inside him

Find Me Within

The Road Now

You sit in sadness

Your pain so great you do not feel me

You do not hear me

You see my death and cry out why

I can not tell you why

Why may never be known to you

I have left this earth but rest in your heart

I knock at your door

Forgive and heal

Forgive me and forgive yourself

Fault is not yours

Heal by knowing I am with you

I am in all that you do

I am home if you grow

Grow and I am at peace

Love me and understand

You will hear my knock upon the door

Open the door and see

I really never left you

For You are me

I am you

Hard Working Americans

March 18, 2011

I haven’t talked much or written about my son going to or returning from the war.
I hope to do so from the depth of soul real soon.
This is a video of his unit in action.
God Bless America.

Time

November 6, 2010

Time, flowing like a river
Time, beckoning me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river
To the sea
Goodbye my love, Maybe for forever
Goodbye my love, The tide waits for me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea
Till it’s gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore
Goodbye my friends, Maybe forever
Goodbye my friends, The stars wait for me
Who knows where we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea
Till it’s gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore
