Sunset love

Leave a comment

Shades of greys
And hues of blues
Likeness to your eyes

Where I can look
For weeks
Soulfully seek

In my happy sighs
When I think of all

The reasons
That make up the why’s
Of my love for you

So true
That this changing
Sunset sky

Cannot possibly
As I relay my affection

Every reflection
Of my souls
To be yours


Packing my love for you

I watched you drive away
Bags packed
Hopes bundled in Jesus

Nerves trundled
Faith intact
Little bits of insecurity

Still creeping
Into those beautiful eyes
Seeping in with
Your anxious sighs

So my love I packed my love
Beside your things
To bridge the gaps

To bring you comfort
In those moments
You feel alone
And far from home

Wrap my love around
Your bones
Like a blanket
To keep you warm

And remember
I may be here
And you may be there

But together
Our broken pieces
Have merged together
And become one

My strength is yours
And yours mine
Even in our darkest hours
Beauty sublime

Because love
Is the epitome
Of our salvation

The gift of a messenger

Leave a comment

Through a simple letter
of encouragement

Meant to show me
The beauty of Jesus’s love
(Which it surely did)

The light of that love
Shone so brightly back
To his face, so intently on mine

With so much kindness
Etched in every line
Love meant without intention

But pure hearted love
And not only did I see
The intended

But the utter beauty
Of the human heart
Of the bearer of the message

And with profound tears
Without fear
I bow to you Jesus

For the gift of more
Than just the message
But the messenger
Who now holds my heart

Looking through the windshield

Fat drops rapidly
Slam into the windshield
As I stare
Into the blackness
Of this rainy night

Trying to find sight
Into what the future
Should look like

But the road just bends
And I can’t pretend
It doesn’t scare me

I wish for sunny days
Full of your light
Beautiful blue eyes
That help me see

And I hope for ways
To manage this
Knot in my gut
When I can’t see at all

Hold onto faith
When I’m on my knees
Fresh from a fall

But the road just bends
And I can’t pretend
It doesn’t scare me

So I’ll pray
When there aren’t
Words to say
That can stay
The fear
Built from years
Of experience

What he thinks

His eyes crinkle
At the edges
As he contemplates

How someone
In a wheelchair
would get by

The construction signs
Placed across the sidewalk

And his frown
Soft voice turned down
As he talks

And my love abounds
Here In the interior
Of this van

For this man
Who always thinks
of such things

Wishing away the empath

Leave a comment

Tears trundle
Down warm cheeks
Not mine own

Across my skin

Unbidden within

Standing in the shower
At the end of the day

Hoping to wash
Them all away

But the water
Just mingles
With the soap

And the tears
Confirms the fears
Before the hope
Down the drain

Recycled dreams

Leave a comment

You took away my right
And now I relive it
Every single night

These tears soak
Into my pillow
As I try and fight

And wonder if maybe
Just maybe
I deserve this pain

That wrings
This heart out
And again
And again

Where in the light
Of day
I pray

fragile faith
Can keep
Tired memories at bay

Instead of recycling
Them back
Into sight

Giving them wings
And flight

And punishing me
For something
I don’t understand

And can’t possibly
Get right
Enough to ignite
