I sit by my window, listening to the whispers in the wind, trying to
figure out if they are speaking to me, or just passing by.
I close my eyes trying to figure out what they are saying, blocking out
all the other things, only listening to the whispers in the wind.
Could it be a lost love searching for their soul-mate, or is it someone
searching for me.
The whispers in the wind tell me a lot of things, stories of long ago,
mysteries about wizards and warriors.
The whispers in the wind are my friends, they leave me with a happy
The Car Ride
Beth Wairimu Irungu
I'm in the front seat,
The suns warmth fills the air.
The window pulled down,
The wind in my face
Over the hills and down the vales.
I know I donít know what it feels like to have my dad die
If I told you I did it would be a lie.
It may have seemed before that this could never happen to you
Iíve no doubt that this is true.
I know you feel pain that I donít understand
But I know it canít feel too grand.
It may seem to be unreal
But the pain you still feel.
I know I canít empathize
But believe me I sympathize.
It may seem that the universe has gone wrong
But remember you donít always have to be strong.
I know you may feel the pain will never go away;
That the hurt is here and come to stay.
It may seem that his life was too short
That heíll never be there for any more games or anything of the sort.
I know youíll feel the loss, but at least youíll always have
Please remember to treasure these.
It may feel as though the pain is too great
As though the thing on your heart is as big as a freight
I know today the sky may be gray
But tomorrow will be a beautiful sunny day
It may seem that this pain will be forever
Because when it comes to things like this pain is very clever
I know the birds will sing and you will rejoice
And from heaven youíll hear your dadís voice
It may be a while before this occurs
But in the end your heart always stirs
I know that through it all youíll have had a friend
Who always had a shoulder to lend
I hope that youíll see
That you always did and always will have that friend in me
Open my eyes, look into my soul
Hold my shaky hands, calm my every fear
Take me back where we once were
I can hear it in your voice when I canít even see your face
I can see it in your eyes when you say nothing at all
Lets go back to walking hand in hand,
You catch me, I catch you
Stop holding back walk donít stand
I want to go back when I could feel a warm
Moist breath on my neck, I want to feel the
Smooth roughness of your skin,
Stop holding back there is no time,
This life is much to short to pass this by
Each day passes and the sun still rises
I canít rise another day without you
I want to go back to sitting on the porch,
Letting the breeze carry ever doubt away,
Time is flying, thereís not much left
I miss you
I love you and I need you
Take me back to where we once were
Lets be one, not two, carry me through
I LOVE YOU
Patrick Joseph Tiernan
she is the perfect poem
the one which fate helps write
she is that natural glow
formed by the sun on gentler days
she is the perfect atmosphere
present when i found myself
she is the flower
which grows beautifully
against the winter grain
she is my favorite song
which i listen to contently
she is the storybook ending
which keeps fairytale hope alive
she is everything perfect
she is everything, to me
i am found with her
because she is, simply,
embrace her...i do
When I first laid eyes on you
I knew there was nothing I would not do
To keep you by my side forever
So we could always be together
Now that I've know you for this long
I think that I may have been wrong
Yes, of course, we've shared some pleasure
But we do not really belong together
The nights we've shared, just us two
Seem as if they meant nothing to you
But I keep holding on day by day
Because I know I'll always feel this way
I want to be more than a friend to you
If I could, I would belong to you
Together forever, just you and me
But unfortunately, that can never be

How deep this night
whose ebon glassine pool
spills chromium stars
to light an onyx sea.
How cold this night.
The wind is still as death,
as Winter calls,
to chill your warm,
By Alicia Driver
One day, when the clouds have cleared and the sky is clear,
Will be the day I've dreamed about, I'll be back in the arms of you.
No more sadness, no more pain,
Our lives will be filled with happiness once again...
One day, when the fog has lifted and the path is clear,
Will be the day I've thought about, I'll have no more fear.
No more heartache, no more lies,
Our love will be for real as I see it in your eyes...
One day, when the leaves have parted and the sun shines through,
Will be the day I've wished about, I know this time'll be true.
So much laughter, so many smiles,
Hand in hand together we'll walk many miles...
I remember a time, not so long ago.
I felt so alive, I wanted to grow.
Things were all rosy, things were okay.
I opened my heart, I was ready that day..
You needed attention, you wanted my touch.
What was the purpose? You expected so much.
You took and not gave, broke the golden rule.
I was playing your game, now I am the fool.
How dare you apologize, how could you not see.
That through these times, you meant something to me.
Half a century is gone. and still there you sit.
Still looking to find, someone with the right fit.
What is important to you? Anything that is real?
You live in the past, your happiness you steal.
How could you betray me? Please tell me why.
Is there substance within you? Do you ever cry?
Remember this story, remember those times.
I was there for you, Me and my rhymes.
My Eyes Will Be Watching
by Mary L. Layfield
When we are apart,
look to the sky,
see, my eyes?
See how they glitter?
Like Argus, the never sleeping,
they watch over you,
until I can return to your side.
They are your protection.
Look to them, my love.
They are my pledge and promise
of eternal adoration.
Go now, my one,
and seek your bed,
rest in peace.
My eyes will be watching.
Wings of Heaven
For M. P.
Jvb/June 10, 2003
When our eyes met, I knew that we were destined to be good friends.
We talked and shared lots of conversations about our lives.
It seemed as if you and I had known each other for years.
Our conversations seemed to always start off with a smile, but of
You were my friend.
When you smiled, the room would light up, like a bright shinning
diamond in the sky.
You were a very special gift that entered into my life, and Iím glad
that I had the opportunity to share your wonderful gift, it was the
gift of ďfriendshipĒ.
A friendship that I will always treasure.
I know that you are now resting on the wings of heaven, your laughter
and smile will always and forever be in my heart.
What is love?
How do we know if we never felt it?
Touched by someoneís loverís hand
So smooth and soft
How would we know what it is like to be touched?
Feel their love in our hearts? For we are silly children with crushes
But never love
Just simple crushes
They mean no more to us then love does.
Rebecca Faye Kent
Farewell my sins,
And my transgressions,
For I have Jesus as my might.
For God will lead me,
And he will see me,
Through the rough parts of life.
I am finally made whole,
For he has cleansed my soul,
And made it pure blossoming white.
And when my life is done,
And I am finally home,
I'll never grow weary of the sight.
THE MOST SYMBOLIC
exhaust fumes are clouding my head
that muffler sounds familiar i think
i look out the window to see if it's you
squinting my eyes looking through fairytale darkness
the sky emits no light, nothing if you are not here
i have forgotten the touch of that seatbelt
that made me so safe
i could drive for hours with that seatbelt on
and never ask where we were going
because i knew if i was with you it didn't matter
the midnight smell has retreated from my mind
as i wonder if you'll ever come back
and say you love me the way i think it's supposed to be
canceling plans and rearranging my life
just so i can wait up for you
and hope you shut off your car and close your door and walk up the
driveway and ring the bell
that is the only noise right now that could stop my heart
and that surprised look on your face
like you thought i wasn't home
because you surprise me with every stare every smile every laugh every
strum every word
from that mouth of yours
the mouth of a person who changed my life
waiting for those exhaust fumes to smell familiar
Tomorrow was so clear but fate had me blind. I glanced away then back
Again and your eyes locket into mine. I knew this moment that true love
did exists. The way you looked that night my heart could not resist ill
never forget those shoes that skirt that top. An eternity it of
happiness as if time seemed to stop.
I promised to put pen to paper,
And un-earth my pensive passion,
But what I think of your fine self,
Cannot be satisfied in such a fashion,
It would take more than I could give,
To let you know just what I thought:
Every flower, every flame, every sweet touch,
And every second, of every day, evermore...
There are things I have and haven't done,
But to you I can promise,
I've never felt like this before,
I've never been so honest.
And about "what I did to you before",
If I was wrong in doing so I apologize,
Just a form of expression, but it's not worth it,
If I can't feel innocent when I look into your tranquil eyes.
You hold my mind in your hand,
A secret in your grace,
A key to my happiness,
Wrapped in your perfect face,
An overwhelming innocence,
Locked in your delicate touch,
Warms my skin, makes my heart whimper,
It means so much; you mean so much.
You're the most amazing spectacle,
I've ever been blessed enough to know,
But to kiss, to touch, it makes me breathless,
To even be able to hold.
Just another heartfelt poem,
From one lover to another,
I hope that you can smile again,
Now my thoughts are uncovered.
Dedicated to the memory of my father
Your heart was as good as gold and yet you died at fifty-one years
I thought that we'd have time to spend, but with bad news it soon
I wanted to tell you what you wanted to hear, that soon the cancer
But I knew deep down that that was a lie, and there wasn't much time
before you would die.
When I realized this I just ran away, my heart was breaking and I
Then the time came when the cancer was at its worst. They put the
phone to your ear my mind was a burst.
What should I say? What should I do? And all I could utter was I love
I wanted to tell you you were such a good father, but no, not me, I
was too selfish to bother.
I was too wrapped up in my own pain and couldn't see past all the
Now it's been a year since you passed away, and I know in my heart is
where you'll remain.
I cannot tell if
it was his handshake
that first spoke "welcome"
that first invited me
into his home
or into his heart
He took me by the hand
but I could not tell
if it was our fingers
or our hearts
I was in his home
and his mistress's...
did I dare break their home
with feelings of desire?
Nights went by,
and our souls stood upon borders
we dared not cross
He took the first step
I relished the moment, relished his love
I stood at my carriage the very next day
bade him farewell
he would not leave my hand
and I would not leave his heart
It haunts me still
my Forbidden Love
that was never meant to be
E Kelly Jr.
I knew it when I saw you
For the very first time
I was in for trouble
Of the very best kind
I see the way you look at me
Behind your marble screen
Piercing through my confidence
With the eyes of a forgotten Queen
Trust me when I say I know you
Iíve been with you for years
Iíve danced in you joy
Iíve howled in your tears
I was there when you were in love
Iíve seen you win and lose
Iíve watched you walk alone in torment
Iíve seen the abuse
I wish I could protect you
Keep you safe and dry
If the darkness tried to fall on you
Iíd hold open the sky
You donít need me to save you
Youíre as tough as Iíve ever seen
Youíre strong enough to takeím all on
You are beautiful, powerful and free
The Mighty Sun in all it glory
And the brightness with witch it shines
Is forced to sit in jealously
Of the light within your eyes
You are lovely to me
I submit, I forfeit, I cease
In you I found my heart again
My love, my soul, my peace
Even if I never know you
As a lover or a wife
You will always be the angel
He sent to save my life
Your gaze has broken through
The wall I built in pain
That kept me from feeling
What little hope remained
Loving you has torn away
The bindings and the chains
I am grateful Lovely One
For the freedom love attained
If I could change anything, what would it be?
Could it be world starvation, homelessness or helping the
blind to see.
Maybe it could be world peace or it may be better if
I just let things be.
Cause before I can change anything, I have to start with me.
What good would it be if I cleaned the world up
But still in my head, my thinking is so corrupt.
I must first change the things that are wrong with me.
Before I try to change anything especially society.
So, I'll start by changing old habits like smoking
Then maybe I wouldn't suffer from errors in my
Next, I think I'd shed some light on the dark
I'll start this process by having a change of heart.
No more will I hurt those that love me and
yearn to keep me near.
I just have to open my eyes as well as my heart,
and be more sincere.
What I chose to altar to you may seem
But to me, I have to be more concerned about
my own change.
Reason being, the world is filled with
The last thing we need is me trying to be
Things could be going according to his plans
so I'll leave world change in the Lord's hands
An stick to something that He'll be grateful to see.
And that is that the only change I wanted was the change me.
i want to thank you
for always being there
in good times and in bad
you were there
when i needed you
you helped me through the tough times
you shared the good times with me
you never told me
i wasn't good enough
you told me
not to give up
and that you would always be there
what would i do without you
i would be lost,
for you are my light in the dark
You have as arms two silver wings
And your eyes, from blue become darker ...so it seems
Two silent eyes, of saint draw in the altar
You are as a mystery...so gentle
A boy with so many feelings
A guitar with unknown meanings
A star in the dark night
You are a symphony of light,
The poem of the first experiences.
So you are something i can not say
You are the fragrance of a flower in May.
Ambler Gallops In My Blood
By: Azza El Wakeel
Your love jumped from the unknown
Into my heart like an ambler
Burst galloping in my blood
Leaving its print on every drop
All my barriers of fear
Vanished facing him
Ambler ruptured a volcano
Of feelings and emotions
I never thought was inside me
Never imagined its image
In my fancy
Ambler dived in my sea
Discovered pearls in the depths
I never dreamed there were shells
In my deep water
Ambler gallops in my blood
Swims in my sea
As if he were racing pulses, age
Joyce Anna-Marie Massad
You sense my emotions the turbulent storm that rises in me.
You are my lighthouse guiding me over the raging sea.
In your embrace I have cried.
In your love I have died.
Only to be reborn into a brand new day.
I will always love you this way.
Your strength flows into me.
Oh the colors I see.
When we come together time stands still.
No one ever can come closer.
No one ever will.
You are the depths of my soul
I am completed now whole.
I am all the woman I will ever be.
When you are here loving me.
Today I woke up and realized you never truly did love me.
was just because. If you truly did love me
and want me in
your life like you said you did you wouldn't have
lied to me,
or about me. So why the lies, the tears, and
pain. Why are
we still so very much connected? Do you care? Do
want me in your life? Why do I care so much?
The pain I feel
inside is a new pain. One I have never felt before.
For I gave you
gift that no other has received from me.
Actually I gave you two
one my heart. With that comes my love. The other is
Something I could only give one man, and
I chose you. So why tear out my heart
like you did? Why such
agony and pain?
Should I still love you? Do you even
was when I was with
you!?! All the lies can be forgotten
except the lie of you telling her I
said crap I didn't say!
have kids with me
was that all crap? Just something to say
I still love you with all my heart!
