Sitting. Feeling the emptiness inside.
How many hours sitting by the phone?
Waiting for someone to call.
How many times checking email?
Only to find an empty box.

Is life worth living without friends?
How can one survive without love?

Hugging knees. Wracked with pain.
Is it possible to survive one more night?
Waiting for someone to call.
How long can I wait?
Sitting. Living with the emptiness.

Good riddance? Some may say so.
Life's dance? Sometimes fraught with demons?

Laying awake? Fighting those demons thru the night.
What's at stake? Would the light going out take them away?

Pushed to the brink? Is the ultimate decision good?
What should one think? to go or not to go?

Ending? The light goes out and all is quiet.
Sending. A soul fades into the eternities.

I saw you there. Sitting. hair blowing in the wind.
How long did the moments last? And then you turned and smiled.
Only a moment? But eternal.
Your smile at me showing how you feel.


Holding a newborn in one's arms.
How long will it last? Eyes closed. Sleeping tenderly.
Can this last more than a moment? Wishing for it never to end.
I smile and want to hold you forever.


Sitting by the fire. Remembering life.
How did it go by so fast? Thinking on almost an eternity of love.
How many more moments do we get? Yes, wishing for it to never end.
I smile and know that I have not wasted my moments dreaming of some future reward.

Her Lips

her lips so soft and expressive moved with his as in a lover's embrace

his body entwined with hers aching for more than this

her tongue danced with his. toying, questing, tasting

his hands holding her tight. touching, feeling, giving

their souls united; bodies as one; giving freely.

The Years


Endlessly cascading like the water over a waterfall.


Remembering holding hands, lips touching, a head on shoulder.


Savoring the first bite of a dinner made for two.


Remembering long years spent with the one you love.

Sitting, thinking, remembering

Miles apart yet kept in heart
wishing not to be apart

Voice heard in the deep of night
remembered smile, yet out of sight

Reaching out and yet not there
remembering the smell of tousled hair

Memories, they bring back smiles
shortening the many miles.
