Always There

Silver dreams

And chains of gold

Wrapped ’round




Lead me

Parade me

On bended knee

I shall serve you

Giving my all

Receiving your all


We are united.

No one knows

No one understands

The dignity

The respect

The love

The push to do better

Be better

All to benefit my growth.

Without you

My life would be so bleak

I would be lost

For you bring to me

A silence in the storm

A safe haven

A singular place

For me to be me.

I love you with my entire soul.

I serve you with my entire being.

I try not to look ahead

I work hard not to digress

For a day will come

When no more will we be

And my heart breaks

For I  do not know how to be…..

Without you.

Callous Indifference

When she called
you turned your back
content with your disgust
your unending anger
for your golden child failed
never rising to the bar you had set
never following the dreams you wrote.
How dare she?
Turned away from the life the you dreamt
from the path you wrote
forging her own way
her own dreams
without a thought to your needs
Now standing
rain soaked
grey life resides
even though the sun does shine
her light forever gone
the golden child has become no more
does you rigidness offer you cold comfort at night?
Does your disdain hold you close?
Does the righteous anger wipe your tears?
Staring at her name
trembling finger caresses
carved into marble
gone so young
never taking the hand held out
a chance for reconciliation
now gone.
