Day by Day
Floating down the river of life,
A raft my only shelter,
My clothes my only possessions,
I ponder my predicament.
Did I throw my life away,
Did life throw me away,
Did I lose the life I had,
Did my life change on me?
What happened to the days past,
What happened to my life as it was,
My arms lie empty when they once were full of love,
Thoughts of happiness are now thoughts of survival.
Each day I struggle on,
Each night I sleep alone,
Each breath is like my last,
Each dream is a nightmare.
Your eyes are a deep blue,
The wonderful color of the water around me.
Your hair flows exquisitely,
The swells of the sea I swim in.
Your skin is smooth and beautiful,
The wet sand on the beach I stroll across.
Your musical voice,
The sound of the waves I love to hear.
Your high aspirations,
The gulls in flight looking down upon me.
Your loving heart,
The warm sun which makes me warm inside.
The waves that give and take again.
Your delicate touch,
The light breeze which makes my skin tingle.
Your wonderful scent,
The salt air overloading my senses.
The train is me,
I am the train.
The train travels forward along the track,
The track of life.
The train passes many things on its travel,
The events of life.
The train halts at stops along its way,
The tragedies and challenges of life.
The train continues on its path,
Its destination is death.
The train reaches its destination,
The trip has ended.
Words Cannot Express
The English language can do you no justice.
My words can never give you enough honor.
Neither can truly describe your splendid self.
I cannot do anything that shows how much I really care for you.
There is nothing on Earth that great.
I treasure you in my heart,
But my mind is poor at translating.
I feel like a fool trying to express my heart,
I never can find the words that are fitting.
Frustration fills my head,
For I long to tell you how much I love you.
I thought English to be complex,
I now see it is much too simple.
English simplifies the most complex thoughts and feelings in life,
It destroys their uniqueness and depth it cheapens it
My Heart Is Failing
My heart is failing,
My body is weak.
I am wailing,
I cannot speak.
I am all broken,
I'm shot all to hell.
No words can be spoken,
To break this spell.
I am a dying sun,
I have sung my last song.
Nothing can be done,
To right what is wrong.
I will cast off my strife,
And slip away in the night.
I shall leave this life,
I shall walk towards the light.
I Am In Love With You
My heart is bound to you.
My dreams have all come true.
My body feels as if it has begun anew.
I am in love with you.
You are the boy I want to kiss.
You are the boy that brought me bliss.
You are the boy I always miss.
I am in love with you.
Who else could I want more in life.
Who else could I want more as a husband.
Who else can cure my strife.
I am in love with you
When I Think of You
When I think of you,
Tears fill my eyes.
I miss what we once had,
I feel a piece of me is missing,
That piece is you.
You were so close to me,
I counted on you every day.
Now that piece is missing,
I sorely do miss it.
I would do anything to again be whole,
To again have you in my life,
To count on you in my everyday life.
Falling for You
A kiss from your lips,
A warm sensuous touch,
A display of devotion,
I want it so much.
When we cuddle,
I feel so complete,
What glorious fortune it was,
For you and me to meet.
You are so special,
Comparable to few,
I think you should know,
I think I'm falling for you.
All I want is to
Steal your heart,
And for us to be together,
To never be apart.
I promise my soul
Will always be true,
If only you allow
Me to love you.
