Something just for me

My heart will forever feel heavy,
but my head will always remain free
because I’ve chosen a different path now,
something just for me.

And I know there will be some,
who will never quite understand,
but I only have this one life here,
and the journey is mine to command.

Darkness n light

Here we are
in the spaces in-between
Hidden inside a realm
of longing and need

Darkness and light
nourish our souls
Our days and desires
consumed by what unfolds

An alternate universe
is what we’ve created
Our minds free to soar
our hearts awakened

Every day with you
compounds my addiction
A life of love
without limitations

Under a strawberry sky

Life was forever bliss
under that strawberry sky.

Intertwined, we remained,
just you and I.

Caught up in imaginings
only we could see.

Keeping each other’s secrets
and running free.

Making love on that sandy,
secluded shore.

Every delicious desire
was ours to explore.

How beautiful…

How beautiful are your spacious skies
even when days are gray.
All those purple mountain majesties
just take my breath away.

And from shore to shore
I love you even more,
when I see the unifying love
of my brothers.

Reminds me of the freedoms
where we stand,
holding hands together
on this sacred land.

May God bless us all
today and forever.
