Because love is the key, to all our NEEDS! To all our, DREAMS!

A Moment


In a moment of TIME,

There holds a lifetime of MOMENTS,

And in a lifetime of MOMENTS,

There holds a moment, in TIME!

Many People will walk in & out of your LIFE!

But only some, PEOPLE!

No matter how far and wide, APART!

Will leave FOOTPRINTS! In your HEART!


That you will hold and lock, inside FOREVER!

Hoping I will be part, of those FOOTPRINTS!




Loving, LIFE! And loving, YOU!

Are as, ONE! Itís a concept within, ITSELF!

And you are the, IMPRESSION! I... SEE!

The picture, THROUGHOUT!

The thoughts I, THINK! The words I, SPEAK!

And every, WISH! Upon my, LIPS!

That belongs to, ME!

The rhythm of my, HEART! Beating, WITHIN!

Every, NEED! Screaming, DEEP!

And you truly, ARE! Every, EMOTION!

Iím feeling, INSIDE!




The depth of, LOVE!

I seek ní see in, YOU ní I!

The lure of, YOU! The way, it makes me FEEL!

All the pleasure, you BRING! Creating, LOVE!

Every emotion, youíre drawing from ME!

Feelings, evolving ETERNALLY!

Did I, MENTION? Youíre, everything I NEED!

Everything, everlasting; throughout my life ní TIME!

By your, SIDE!

Your essence, surrounding ME!

The need, of YOU! Drowning me, INSIDE!

Keeping me, AROUND! Loving you, TONIGHT!

All the desire, I breathe ní FOUND! Understand, in YOU!

Passion, burning DEEP! Inside, of ME!

All the understanding, you provide ní PROVOKE! In, ME!

Itís everything, Iíve found in YOU!

Everything, I love about YOU!

A new outlook on life

Will reveal a whole new life

Bringing change to your life, with just one single thought

That single thought, can and will change your life forever

As is the simple act of surrendering to self

And to another, based on love

Which will bring, a change of heart

A change of sight, a change throughout

Which will, produce a flow of life

Directing your soul, and enlarging your heart

Therefore enabling a leap of faith

Through one, single thought

Which will change, our lives forever

So what are you waiting for?


Somebodyís Reason to Smile


Would you, could you,

Will you, wonít you,

Maybe, why not, tell me,

Please, would you, could you,

Help me, show me, and guide me,

Teach me, lead me, and surround me,

Corrupt me, control me, and entice me,

Hold me, kiss me, and breathe me,

Follow me, enjoy me, and satisfy me,

Compel me, direct me, and enrich me,

Nurture me, involve me, and behold me,

Because itís not that hard to do,

Just give it a go, youíll see, youíll understand,

Youíll be surprised, youíll agree, youíll believe,

And all I ask, at the end of the day,

Is please, just, touch me, embrace me,

Hold me ní love me, and inspire me,

But most of all, could you please,

Just help me, create my SMILE!




To all the lonely hearts ní tears out there, walking in the WORLD!

Standing alone, bleeding LONELY! Falling fast, losing GROUND!

Longing ní wishing, dreaming of LOVE! Longing ní wishing, believing in LOVE!

Just wanting to be held ní seen, ADMIRED! Loved, AGAIN!

So here I am, trying to explaining it all, expanding your LIVES!

Wanting, you to have all the feelings I have ní DESIRE!

The sense of need ní want, trust ní PLEASURE! Becoming, WHOLE!

Everything above, everything Iím shouting out, writing for YOU!

Writing it all down, painting a PICTURE! For you ní I!

For those in, NEED! Needing, LOVE! Needing a brand new, LIFE!

Lining it up with the, UNIVERSE! Creating a brand new life, for YOU!

Through my words ní poetry, PROSE! Unfolding all my, LOVE!

Expanding your, MIND! Stretching your, IMAGINATION!

Designing, PARADISE! Allowing the ocean blue, to surround your LIFE!

Instead of, TEARS! And a bleeding, HEART! Falling, APART!

Helping you to climb back, to the top of your WORLD!

Looking down again, instead of looking UP! Because Iíve been miss ní YOU!

So has the, WORLD! Because youíre part of, IT! Every bit as much, as ME!

Born to live ní BREATHE! Equal, to those calling themselves kings ní QUEENS!

Movie stars ní TV personalities, sporting HEROES! Etc, Etc,

Especially the heretics, religious, lying FRAUDS! Itís not what we need in this, WORLD!

Because with all that they call, ROYALTY! Man ní woman, above the REST!

Thinking theyíre making a, DIFFERENCE! But making no, SENSE!

Missing the mark, many miles apart, from what we really need, yeah LOVE!

So here I am, doing my part for YOU! Hoping youíll, LIKE!

Hoping youíll understand my heart ní SOUL! Because my journey was the same as YOU!

Born from the ground, UP! Crying tears, fighting to SURVIVE!

Alcohol ní violence, at the forefront of my childhood LIFE!

Now Iím writing about my, LIFE! From my inner, CORE! Exploring, DEEP!

Unfolding it through, LOVE! As Iím taking my sons on a journey, with ME!

Loving the ride, exploring my demons, escaping it all, through my words ní POETRY!

Memories, freeing my SOUL! Hoping itíll do the same for, YOU!

Walking; on ní beyond the life Iíve lived ní seen ní BREATHED!

Wanting to take you along with, ME! So please take my hand, and follow ME!

Taking you to a place called, LOVE! So please, breathe it IN!

Living your, LIFE! Laughing, ALOT! Loving, FOREVER!

Knowing; if you donít risk anything, or take a chance in LIFE!

You risk even more, by never taking that RISK! And denying the chance, of a LIFETIME!

The moment when destiny, is about to say HELLO!

Placing a path beneath your feet, and tells you to walk this WAY!
