I Close My Eyes | Short Poem No. 46

“I close my eyes and I hold your hand in mine. Endlessly floating together through time.”

The waves crashing against the darkened stone.

The salty air dries the dew of the night.

The creatures scramble, fending for their own.

Slender palms stretch their hands towards the light.

But then, you and I drift in the picture.

Disregarding all but our affection.

So careless, so enjoying our fixture.

So careless, enjoying imperfection.

Let’s drift away, together, me and you.

Laughs and flirty glares, our hide-a-way cove

Between the azure sky and ocean blue.

There’s the warmth of the sun, and of our love.

I close my eyes and I hold your hand in mine.

Endlessly floating together through time.

Pregnancy Announcement | Short Poem No. 45

The beauty of a pregnancy announcement. . .

This poem is a silhouette of love.

Two embraced in a moment, lost and free.

He gives a kiss as she looks from above.

Because now there’s two, but soon will be three.

Worries of struggle, money, parenting,

are gone now in this beautiful moment.

The mother thinks of a song she can sing,

a lullaby to the life that God’s lent.

Soon, there’ll be a cradle, and newborn cries.

as into this place, with worries it’s own,

an infant’s pushed to their new world to rise –

in the arms of parents making a home.

And devotion will keep them together.

Only a true love can make things better.

Sand on the Beach | Poetry Remix No. 4

Feeling hot sand on the beach.

Ocean breeze runs through my hair.

Your hand settled between mine.

Worries – we forgot to care.

Can moments stretch into eternity

when you stop to look into someone’s eye?

Time always moves on – Sand sifting through hands.

Time always moves on – Moments always die.

Look back and dream of moments,

wishing again for that day.

But, as you dream of the past,

today slowly drifts away.

Love Notes | Poetry Remix No. 3

“Love Notes:” They come in many forms.

There’s sounds of a violin, I walk down the street.

I’m hearing sweet music play, the drum is my feet.

My mind is the bow that slides up and down the strings.

This happens when I think of the warmth that you bring.

I’m just a simple boy leading a symphony

when, in my ear, I hear your voice calling to me.

But, the music never stops,

finally have each other.

And the music never stops

plays as I’m with my lover.

Your voice is the melody,

the winds makes a harmony.

Making rhythms as I walk,

symphony of you and me.

Love and Adventure | Poetry Remix No. 2

“Love and Adventure.”

On the streets, searching this city with you,

Two dots on a mountain or ocean blue.

We’re searching the world, making memories.

We’re spending money but getting for free.

The world’s so big, we’re at each other’s side.

We’ve got each other’s back – Bonnie and Clyde!

The storm clouds turn grey.

Wind blows, night and day.

Like Empire State,

We’ll shine anyway.

Searching with you. ‘cross mountains, oceans blue.

New York can’t compare with my love for you.

Heart at Peace | Poetry Remix No. 1

“Heart at Peace.”

A long day coming, like a hurricane.

Came to work happy, but now not okay.

Whatever happened, we’ve been there before.

Hiding in his house, in his room, shut door.

And he plays on his guitar

things he feels inside his heart.

When the world does fall apart

and everyone feels so far.

Came to the world as simple as could be.

She wanted little things, not like you, me.

But the world never told it would be cruel.

Left her brokenhearted, feeling a fool.

So she plays on her guitar

things she feels inside her heart.

When the world does fall apart

and everyone feels so far.

Still, they play on their guitars

and they pray a little prayer.

And the peace inside their hearts

lets them know that someone’s there.
