(Poem) You Are My Heart

You Are My Heart

 

Our love is like no other that I have known

We knew it the moment that our lips met

I see the light that is still inside your eyes

I can feel the hunger deep within my heart

 

From this point after the flame shall not burn out

Let us stay cuddled in each others arms all night

Sweet Woman, all the love we have shared together

How many years and hugs will our lives allow us

 

I promise you my Lady, all that my heart can give

Life presented us a beautiful friendship and love

Our hearts still in step in these Bluegrass Hills

You will always be the light that my heart desires

 

 

 

 

(Love Poem) Their Is A Little Lady

(Their Is A Little Lady)

 

Their is a little Lady

Walking across my desk

Strutting like She owned it

She has a walk, a belief in Herself

Just a hairy little Dust-mop Pet

 

She rolls over on her hairy back

Gives you Her furry belly to pet

Her purr, loudly giving off her mood

Whose paws are eating out of whose

Do they sometimes make you wonder

Who is the Master, and who is the Pet

 

 

(A Savage Commentary) I Got Taught A Lesson: A Couple Of Months Ago

I Got Taught A Lesson: A Couple Of Months Ago

 

A couple of months ago I got a real thump to the chest. I woke up one morning to a Facebook Message from my oldest step child telling me to get lost and to never contact him again. He also said that I was nothing to him, that hurt a bit. If I still had any teeth that would have knocked them right back out again. I honestly didn’t see this one coming. We live several states apart, about 900 miles so it is not like we were getting to visit anyway.

 

I have a question for you to think about if you would. This step son was 11 when I married his Mom, he is an adult now with an 18 year old son of his own. I stayed legally married to his Mom and gave her almost all of my income and attention until he was about 23. To say his Mom was unstable, self-centered, greedy and hate filled and I am on purpose being nice when I speak of her now. I knew pretty early on that I had made a huge mistake in marrying this lady but like an idiot I stayed with the stated reason being to raise this child whom I had/have grown to love.

 

Ones sins have a way of darkening ones future whether we walk around with our eyes wide open, or shut. What I have lost I am still mentally trying to learn to cope with. I am not sure just what I have done to deserve the pain of this but I do know that I have caused others a lot of pain throughout the years so I guess this is just payback in Karma. So yes, a couple of months ago I got taught yet another painful lesson, it does make one wonder just how many of these surprises and old heart can take. But, such is life in the real world.

(Love Poem) I Find Myself Missing You

I Find Myself Missing You

Two days before you left

I found myself missing you

Your body here still soft and warm

Yet my mind already missing you

 

Though your Mission is right and true

Yet, I still miss you when you’re gone

Your three Northern Stars they do glow

Please don’t forget your own Pilot Knob

 

Twice today while passing I looked into your room

Boo sleeping quietly at the foot of your empty bed

Dark of morning or of the night has little difference now

Yet, light or dark, I still find myself missing you, my lady

(Short Poem) Your Beautiful Face

Your Beautiful Face

 

Your face is the sun that starts my days

I see goodness in the light of your eyes

Your lips as soft as I have ever known

Tender cheeks as they lay across my chest

Your eyes long ago melded into my mind

Your beautiful face, the center of my world

 

 

Are We All Equal And Even?

Are We All Equal And Even?

 

Good evening folks, as you can see I have decided to write to you on the subject matter of if we are all of equal value both in our own human eyes and in the eyes of our Creator. Let’s break the two words down separately for a moment, define them and see if they come back together in the end. I looked the words up in the Webster Dictionary and this is what it had to say. Equal: same in number, style, merit, fit or qualified, evenly balanced, one equal to another. Then for the word Even: uniform in quality, equal in amount, impartial, invites comparison.

 

I do hope that with age that we all do learn from the life that we have lived, good, bad and the ugliness of our societies we survive within. I know that our Lord said for us to “not put those of gray hair away, for in the gray hair on man lies the wisdom of the world.” I used to wonder for years how any of us humans could possibly think of ourselves as being superior or as subordinate to other people then at the age of 22 I had an eye opening reality slap me in the face and I was given the answer. At the age of 22 I left northern Illinois where I had lived for 12 years and moved back to the town I was born in which is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia. From the ages of 10-17 I attended our local Church of Christ but from 17-22 I have to admit that I didn’t attend very often. So, when I moved back to the home of my family roots I decided that I would start going back to Church at their local Church of Christ.

 

I attended this Church for three weeks when on one Sunday evening the Preacher turned in his 30 day notice of his quitting. He and his family were not local folks, in fact they were “Yankees”, they were from the state of Pennsylvania so quite honestly I was a bit surprised that he had even even been hired there as some of the folks in that region are still fighting the Civil War within their own minds. That Sunday evening after the Preacher had given his notice I met him at the door and told him that I had been thinking about making this the Church the place I was going to be a regular at so could he tell me what was troubling him so much that he decided to quit and leave the area. What the man told be both shocked me and woke me up at the same time. What he said was that it is the Church Leadership’s opinion here that the only people who have Souls, are white people. Seriously, that is what he said, I never ever stepped foot in that building again.

 

For years I had wondered how it was possible that some people throughout history to treat each other as horribly as we have. How was it possible for the atrocities of the slave trade of years ago and to this current date? How was it possible that the government of our Nation (USA) to have ever worked to eliminate a whole race of people like they did all throughout the 1800’s with the Native Americans. How could a government or a major ruling race say to another that “you are less than I am because you don’t have the same skin color as me or because your religion is somewhat different than what we believe.” How phony can a person or persons be? One of the thoughts that I have pondered throughout the years is just how does a person think they will be able to justify their ego’s and their hatreds when they step in front of the Judgement Seat of our Creator? How could it be possible for me to believe that it is okay with our Creator for me to treat people of a different skin color or from another country than I am as if they are less important than I am?

 

Friends, it took me a long time before I finally understood this reality, it took me a long time to “get it.” People treat other people as ‘sub-humans’ because that is what they believe inside themselves. This ‘truth’ is both sad and scary at the same time. This reality does also extend to financial class hatred of each other. Things like I hate you because you are richer than me or, I hate you because you have less than me. So many do try to puff their own selves up by squashing and demeaning all others. Truly, Demons do walk this Earth among us and they are as starving Lions looking for whom they may devour. The truth is that many people actually do believe that all other people are ‘less’ than they are. That at best, only a few other people are Equal to themselves. Many people of this egotistical world do not believe that others should be considered or treated as “Even” or allowed onto the playing field of life with themselves.

 

Jesus tells us plainly over and over again that God IS NOT a respecter of persons. He is telling us that one person is not better than another. Whether we are a King, a President or a person who cleans toilets for a living and lives under a bridge, we are all of equal importance to God our Creator. Salvation is given by God to all people of the Earth, to all Nations, to all Languages. Why is it that some of us humans seem to think that we can slander God’s human creations and demean them? How is it possible that we can think we will not be held accountable by our own Creator of these sins? Friends, it is all of us who are not “Equal, Even” or sufficient, not of our own abilities. It is only by the Mercy, Grace and Power of our Creator that any of us have ever drawn a single breath. Folks it is by our ‘works, our actions’ that we are known. If we hate our brother without a cause, we at our own Judgement will be looked upon by the Hosts of Heaven, God’s Angels and our Creator Himself as nothing more than a murderer.

 

Just think of this, if we humans would do this one thing, to love one another as Jesus has loved us, then most of the worlds ills would go away. Love, kindness, goodness, charity, and mercy, what an abstract thought in our society today. When a child comes forth out of the womb it is Equal, it is Even, it is the humans around the child that teaches them both truth and errors, love and hate.

(Humanity/Poem) Will They Know That We Loved Them

Will They Know That We Loved Them

 

Today would have been the Birthday of my Father-in-Law and friend

Three weeks ago he passes just shy of seeing his 82nd circle of life

I was not there with him when he slid into the waiting arms of the Lord

The suffering that racked his brain is now but part of this good man’s aura

 

 

The last time I saw him we shared a smile when I mentioned the name of the Lord

Knowing that we will meet again so this time, this hug would not be the last one

With dignity he served as he quietly ran his race and with dignity, he slipped off to rest

Four children he raised, always trying his best, his youngest daughter he entrusted to me

 

His funeral my health would not let me attend high up on a Bluegrass Mountaintop

It is not one’s death that we celebrate, with one’s breath’s a person chooses good or bad

Even the Devil was once loved but just like many humans some turn away from God’s Grace

When we ourselves pass on into the quiet, will the ones we love know they held that place

 

(Romantic Poem) Dance This Dance With Me

DANCE THIS DANCE WITH ME

Pretty girl, if I ask you very sweet

Would you please slip into my arms

And dance this dance with me

For you are the most beautiful girl

That my heart has ever seen

 

I see you setting with all your friends

Grape juice against your lips

From the crystal glass that you now sip

How I wish that crystal, were my lips

 

I’ve seen you turn down all the other men

Could it be me with whom you wish to dance

I see you look my way, I tip my hat

My heart now leaps with joy

You said yes, to my offer of this dance

 

With Channel and Halston now intertwined

We now float across this old wooded floor

Now we dance our dance in married bliss

As I carry you across the threshold of our home’s door

Now we dance this dance of married love forever more

(Love Poem) Kiss Of Love

Kiss Of Love 

 

May I kiss you my love, my sweetheart, my beautiful Bride

May my lips caress the tears of joy from your Angelic eyes

May my tongue dance on your belly, your breasts your thighs

Close your eyes now my sweet let your mind in pleasure drift

Let your thoughts be only of the sweet nectar that you give

 

 

Your delicious rose petals give to me my sweet lady tonight

Dream deep now my love of my lips on your ankles and toes

My tongue on your feet kissing you softly into paradise

Past your ankles, your knees, my breath on your thighs

Heavens gate opens to please as my tongue dances softly

Onward and inward my lips caressing the petals of life

 

 

I love the sound of your moans your cries of delight

I love you my darling, I wish only to please you tonight

Kissing and caressing upward to your beautiful breasts

You surrender to my breath as my lips encircle your buds

Now only your moans and tears of your pleasure do I see

Surrender now softly my love into my arms for the night

(Love Poem) High Winds

HIGH WINDS

 

Not tired so I decided to stay up a while tonight

No particular reason, just that I wished to tonight

About one A.M. I start to hear the high winds roll

Down the Pass straight to our home they blow

The house creaks and cracks to say it’s hello

 

Wife sound a sleep at the back-end of the house we share

Winds always bother her, she has lived in the alley of big blows

My lady had snoozed so I ushered her to bed about midnight

A big blow once picked up her car with her and her baby inside

It sat them back down on the highway, still unhurt and alive

 

Sweet dreams to my Lady, sleeping quietly tonight

Wrapped up with her Boo kitty all snuggled in tight

About five A.M. now, it think the big winds have died

Big winds can be so soothing, or a chill to your spine

Sleep well my Lady, the high winds meant nothing tonight
