Poem: self

It is the dream that I never knew would come.

The life that has brought so much pain is starting to bring joy.

Knowing that what could be is happening.

The only thing missing is love.

Love for oneself is hard to find.

Love for others is growing inside, and not letting it catch the breeze from the door you hide.

To love oneself will be a journey.

This is the time to be alive and you are taking it in stride.

Tomorrow things might change, but today you just hope they stay the same.

You are falling for the person you never like.

You.

You are starting to believe in you, and it is a blessing to see.

Poem: Name

Where have you been?

I have been searching for you day and night.

Granted I did not do it alone.

I always had someone on myside.

Someone that always had the guided light.

A light that never fades even when I do.

My guide is a person that seldom gets praise until it is too late.

Yet they are always there.

The name is one that we all know so well.

Will you call it or are you too shame to say a thing.

The answer is in your hands.

Poem:Fruits

Hurting from deep and running from the real.

Trying to see if this something that could be.

Leaving with questions that never have answers.

That you never would want it to be.

Not really trying to understand the pain that is within.

This is all that has come into the light that guides you.

The pain is all to real that you never feel it until it is almost over.

Then you remember this is just another day of life.

A life that has never been kind, but you have enjoyed the fruits.

The fruits have always been bitter, but that is what makes them sweet.

Poem: Love You

I love you.

I love you.

The three hardest words to say.

Yet with you they fall off my tongue.

I have written these words before, but I never meant them with love.

This time with you all I do is say them with love.

I am thankful for these words.

They have given me the opportunity to be the person I have always wanted to be.

Now as I lay here looking at the rising sun all I can think about is that I love you.

These words will never grow tired.

They will only deepen the wound that my heart held for so long.

Once again, I must say that I love you for the rest of my days.
