Soldiers Return

beggars

Living on the street
cast away
from polite society
young me sent to war
discarded, abandoned
living in cardboard
shelters filled with
nightmares
gathered in far-away lands

Even More

endless-space

Stars in the sky
grains of sand
waves on the sea
count them all
and still you won’t have
how much God loves
you and me

Oh, that I could
learn to love
so thoroughly

A Truthful Poem

411111_435249336521924_2051454390_o-1

Why write a poem
full of lies?
Is not poetry
where one
bears his soul?

Even if filled
with metaphors
the poem reveals
the lover’s heart
filled with longing
overflowing with love
tears unshed
truth revealed.

Lucky Me

rainbow7

I am lucky
blessed am I
my path is strewn
with four-leaf clover
rainbows hover above my head
angels guard my every step
I am loved
I am loved
luck and loved
through all time

Neon Footprints

neon-footprints

Lay down neon footprints, Lord
Blaze a trail so clear to me
Make my faith forever strong
May I walk with my hand in Thine
Guide me, Lord, to the Promised Land.

Vulnerable

field-of-flowers3

Vulnerable
fragile
tendrils of fantasy
illusion wrapped in mystery
filled with emptiness
waiting for others
to make life happen
afraid to start
living my life
governed only by
that voice within

Right Here

plant-heart

I’m here
then there
until I’m nowhere
or even everywhere

Who am I?
What am I?
A thought
single idea
part of God’s day dream?
