A Friend Like You

I can not find words
To express my gratitude
For a friend like you

I am not worthy
Of your generosity
But I accept it

You tell me gently
Pay it forward when you can
I will. I promise.

You are a great friend
Even without this kindness
Thank you. I love you.

Little Steps

Little steps
Most taken forward
Some taken back
Circles and serpentines
Taken one step at a time

Little lessons
Things learned
And unlearned
Through conversations with friends
And self assessment

Little memories
Come creeping in
The occasional good thought
Sadly, most are not
But making better ones now

Little goals
Mark each day
Simple things
Strung end to end
Help me achieve bigger things

Little laughs
Where before
There were sighs
Happiness is possible
I am proof

Little moments
Of love and laughter
Contentment and joy
Because I have you
In my life

Only In My Dreams

Time to close my eyes
and feel your arms around me
only in my dreams

Sexy Fedora

Making a statement
Face hidden beneath the brim
Sexy fedora.

Your Voice

Your voice in my ear
Telling me to just hang on
Saves me from myself

Your hands wrapped in mine
The one I can never have
Yet love anyway.

Your eyes looking down
Into mine as we make love
Say things your mouth can't.

Your arms holding me
Tightly, gently, protecting
As I do the same

Your soul belongs here
Inside me wrapped around mine
Each the other's love

In the Pre-dawn Dark

In the pre-dawn
I slowly
To the sound
Of a soft
Reminding me
That you are not

Because I Love You

Because I love you
I want you to be happy
whatever that means.

If it isn't me
to be your one and only
I will still love you.

You Too

Sometimes a heartbreak
Is inevitable
And you see the signs
Long before you finally
Confront it

When the person you love
Leaves you for another
Knowing they will be happier
And being truly happy for them
Lessons the pain if only a little.

Focus on that love
Hope for their happiness
And know that one day
You too
Will find happiness.

A Moment

There is a moment
of crystal clear clarity
when you find your love.
And in that moment
you see life and love and truth
and the angels sing.

I am Your Shelter

I am your shelter
from the storm that life becomes
you are safe in me.
When the cold winds howl
take refuge here in my arms
I will protect you.
Let the storm rage on
we can endure anything
when we're together.
