For my wife
If I could paint you a flower for every hour they would be red. Yet if I could paint you another it would be yellow and if I had to guide you from the night into my heart I would paint you white. If a flower for flowers were a language or choice I would love thee and cherish this voice. One can live where two are together but that flower is so rare I dare not say never. One must proceed when my flower has true color and there paint has no need. I think I shall name it Sabrina.
Sabrina Valentine and Sabrina Kirk
I felt you in a space that no one else can find,
Expressed things that weigh beautifully upon my mind,
Touched by your thoughts I can barely comprehend,
I find myself exposed to a brand new kind of friend,
My mind silenced by the sound of my heart beginning to beat,
I felt lost and yet found while attempting to find my feet,
And as you revived the parts of me I never knew,
Or maybe even forgotten waiting on something true,
How can I express what I've never known,
Or begin in what I've never been shown?
Without question the answers sought never to be found,
Without words you gave me something more profound,
Wonderfully written upon my heart I find them everyday,
Yet still I search for the right words to say,
Now I reflect in the wonder of how I could be so small,
Realizing you showed me how I need not words at all,
Without question... One day I opened my eyes and began to see,
Your heart was beautiful enough to finally find me.....  
  For the love of my life ... Feb. 2 2017
There are no words for the love I have for you. An emotion I thought was familiar suddenly has become unfamiliar and brand new. If time were a language we could express I would know the words to paint such a masterpiece in my mind as beautiful as you. If the future could be told It would only spoil the time it takes to portray a life perfected spent with you. Although I have taken few moments to watch the sun rise I know none of them were as beautiful as the sparkle of life I see in your eyes every time i wake to look at you. You reach deep into my heart with every warm embrace. A place i reserved for company only such as you. Only in my wildest dreams would i ever have thought love was unsettling as I find I could never truly settle for anything less than you. If only my mind were as vast and spacious as the home my heart has built for you. You would know just how much I truly love being forever in love with you. ( your loving heart in and of Christ Jesus who saved us all so long ago)

Da-te Day tell but not for ⛵ did you read about esther this easter? It's a real feaster touch down cap and gown for Je-Di's with a Master degree only then Yo-Da set you free. Mmm Free In-Deed.
As time goes by the world is in constant change. Such is also seen in the voices of our children and in our lives and affecting our fortunes. Trust in a relationship comes by faith theough love of understanding. Patience is a virtue and neccessity. Kindness and the willingness to adapt to the ever changing tides in the human enviroment. Both heart and soul is lost like a ship at sea without understanding it is tossed by storm after storm. The faithful stay the lines and continue to say-all. Destiny would have it say the wind steers the ship but the captain weathers the storm and guides the ship through the stormy seas. The rain is blown in like cool refreshing water to be sure the captain stays alert to save the crew. A successful relationship is said to be based on trust. However, trust is not found without faith but through faith. Faith for faith as it has now been said begins a successful marriage. Just as the crew must trust the captain, the captain must also trust the crew. Vanity leads to both destruction of captain amd crew. Just as a captain must be skilled, so must the crew also be skilled. The husband is like a captain to where the wife is like the crew because this is where our children first arrive and strive to be. Lessons in life may be tough but just as children deserve second chances so do our relationships like captain and crew setting an example for our children. Who can say love is without envy? Love is the desire of the heart and a captain knows best what is to be desired in the mind. Like salt and pepper so is the inter-twining of love righteously seasoned. Thus the salt from the see and the pepper from the ground keeps captain amd crew informed for the children in families that without it would no longer be. There may be a sun and a moon or even earth and sky but nothing is nothing if love exists not in the eyes of the child. The heart that devours then devours itself. The heart that devours only devours nations upon nations. Love is the timeless gift of life and en-sures a future in a place throughout time and space without it all things would cease to exist. Explore with only love's understanding.

Truth Prevails
when times are good
everything is as it should
when times are hard
revealed is the hidden card
from the deck of life you were given a hand
play it right or it crumbles like sand
one can bluff or even lie
but the truth is known as it meets the eye
be true to thyself or or none can be true
as the life you build will fall upon you
based on deciet a heart can grow fond
but over time you will lose that bond
as with time it will show
the thorns as they rigoruosly grow
truth will consume the you, you think you know
because all the lies will suddenly go
when that moment of judment demandingly calls
and the castle of your lies built suddenly falls
to each their own and to thine own self be true
reap what you sow as it is cast upon you
Martial-law Civil-Law Civility
Joseph Preston Kirk Nov 2013
From yesterday to tomorrow and today we find our way
When my eyes can not see I will listen to her heart
When my soul begins to feel what hers cannot express
when my tongue is tied and can not speak
to what sometimes my arms might not be able to reach
when a loving embrace can not cut quite as deep
when the fire burns yet yet the path is steep
when direction has become a mystery and has no place
and time has forgotten everything but this place
when destiny calls but has been delayed
and life has left you feeling tricked or betrayed
when sadness has blinded you in distress
and everything seems as if it's a mess
when the troubles of the world have fallen upon your path
and wont let up till it leaves an aftermath
when our words are clouded and didnt quite come out right
and paradise is missing and were alone somewhere in this night
when fear has hidden what truth is already made known
and 2 souls carry what cannot be shown
It is then I will be reminded love withstands throughout any storm
because with a little rain everything is made clean taking its previous form
when passion rises and love withstands
sadness can never withhold from love's demands
and the beauty of for better or worse
isnt what some say is a blessing or a curse
the truth is that no matter what today might send
tomorrow were still lovers and together in the end
sometimes life might bring you flowers or maybe a memory of some forgotten discourse
but cast aside your fear and remember love is the strongest and most powerful awesome force
if today was tomorrow or even tomorrow was today
I might even know what it is I have to say
but since sometimes our words might not come until tomorrow and not today
Ill just love you in silence kneel down and pray
because the Lord already knows what we want to really say
'I love you baby and its all going to be OK"

Lets just chalk it up to one of those days.
Bad day for evil

Time will tell...
I often wonder why winter tastes so sweet
yet then I fear not the summers heat
If I faulter how can one mend
or how then will I find the ways to bend
Try not the things we ought not
but embrace the things often sought
Feeling felt we sometimes ignore
fearful of what might be behind that door
But cherish what you never sell
for it's value only time will tell
Time Space Place

PAIN PASSION AND PLAY
there will always be pain passion and play
but what really matters is what you think about at the end of the day
finding hope peace love and tranquility
call it lucky if you have that ability
but practice daily with humility
as without it there can be no civility
life is not taken given or achieved
never close your eyes or be deceived
life is always changing and growing
life is practice as you could never become all knowing
so keep a smile as you continue growing
and remember there's never enough practice to ever stop showing
something you cannot see or touch but still feel
so keep your chin up and keep it real.
Christ

The Confesser
She did not like coffee in the morning
She did not like to eat at lunch
Resistance at dinner
You know the heart of a sinner
She loves the sound of sweet death
Her heart beats slower within her chest
Her treasure is buried deep
The mountain she made appears so steep
The stairway to the deep
The hill provided a step
A rope to climb her way out
A handle to lift her up
And a band to hold her clear
Death to America was their cheer
Drunken driving unable to steer
What did they fear
With heaven so near?
A love to them became so queer
Unnatural in ways became their path
Pointing fingers at the other one's way
They do not listen to what the Angels say
Life and death do divide
But a blackened heart never can hide
The day had come to pick a side.
The great divide
Because all other women (Kingdoms) are weakness; the kingdom of God is built on wisdom for all. Equality in the pursuit of happiness even by the constitution of the state of Florida in retrospect: Justice is not for sale, denial or delay. All men are created equal and the bar was created not to deny these rights but to protect them as ruled by the Supreme court and under the supreme Law of the land; the United States Constitution. As given by divine providence and nuture's God. The nature of the state of mind and the deeds of the mouth spoken from the heart. Evil triumphs when good men do nothing and for this reason governments were instituted just as moses gave the sermon on the mount. America the beautiful promised land given by God in the divinity demonstrated by Jesus and the famous 4 score and 7 years ago even today. Christ Jesus stood at the crossroads of faith truth Justice and the American way to deliver us this beautiful nation of nations so many have taken for granted today although his banner still waves. ;)

Co-V-Id-19
The sands of time flow like a phone call
from the nickel back to the covering dime
ignorance was sublime in a nation space or place
knitting and weaving throughout all of time
cooperative and viable the business of Identity
a song or a new psalm walking hand in hands
from the podium into the world hunting stands
going under seeking above the trees and throughout the skies
uncovering truths and delivering those lost in lies
a doorway leading to a labyrinth of keys
or a hallway leading to distant rooms
follow me a voice was heard just as the gate began to close
what was the importer's new clothes?
was it for them or those the fireman brought a special hose
heaven on Earth or the hell below
the time of times only the Angels know
but today knowledge grows from the hearts of many
into the deep unknown like an orchestra whispering to and fro
if today were yesterday and tomorrow was today
these are the words we all would say
this too shall P.A.S.S.
~Psalms 19

The Traveler
The stars were many upon the darkness
But the likeness were few and only the sun knew
Oh how the distance of time and space knew
The flight of that selected and beautiful crew
The places in space we all must go through
Holding hands and under-stands the darkness that grew
Weaving now throughout all space and time
Directing now without commuting in crime
For 50 cents and 9 pence making a call
Directing but a few more in making that call
Glory grace mercy hope and truth for all
A dance and chance at the military ball
Who would have thought the goals and trolls would outlast them all
Yet some still silent begin to crawl
Spring summer winter and fall
Weaving together in and out among the fall
Lifted up together with love for all.
~GuArDiAn79
