Until we meet again
Know that I carry
you in my heart
I cherish every moment in
your presence but loving you
reminds me that life is short
I know that I have not the
time enough to hold
you in my arms
So that every goodbye
breaks my heart,only to be
healed every time you come
into my life again
I know that no matter where
I end up or life takes me,
I shall always find my
way back to you.
There is a beacon in my heart lit
by my love for you that
always shines a light on my path
guiding me home where
you keep my heart.

Out of sight
A mere mention
Of yesterday's sunlight
The golden touch
Upon your soul
The peace it portrays
Gone now is the comfort
Of the sun's protective embrace
As the clouds roll in
Made aware of being cold again
Lonely and vulnerable
Sunshine and safety stolen away
And made a distant memory
It goes on and on
Not a ray of light in sight
So long that the darkness
Becomes the norm
Being cold becomes the norm
Being alone becomes the norm
And the night comes
Devoid of the light of your memories
The clouds finally are defeated and retreat
And the moon shows her face
Reminding you that the sunshine never really leaves
Even if it is faraway
It's coming back for you
To warm your skin
And hug your soul

Here I am
Because I feel like the poetry isn't flowing
Then I think of you
You take my frustrations away
You paint everything in poetry
And it flows
You are the blanket that warms and comforts me
Late at night
The shooting star that inspires me
My beautiful princess
We sometimes ask ourselves
If dreams come true
I know they do
Because of you
The purest heart
Yours I hold
You've given me my innocence back
With your heart
I would like to grow old
Hold my hands
While they age and tire
You will always be the spark to my fire

All day
New pains exposed
Hard work?
An understatement
It even hurts to write
Right now
Dirt and sweat mixed together
Sometimes with a little bit of blood
Oh how it burns when it flows
Into your eyes and into the small cuts
Hard work does offer some clarity
Some satisfaction
Some pride
Knowing that you worked hard
Is rewarding
It can kill patience
For complainers
Abusers and users
Freeloaders and those that made excuses
People forget that in order to make
Dreams come true
A certain amount of work is required
Sacrifice is necessary
If you really want something bad enough
You gotta chase your dreams down and work for them

It's been a while
Since I've been a child
There is heart in me
That is young
There is patience
That is old
I am living
But always dying
The same holds true since birth
We come into this world
And open our eyes
And get told how to live
All you really have to do
Is be yourself
Nathan Pival Jul 2016
No matter what
I will continue to search for you
You made me smile
You lit my fire
You are my desire

Someday, somehow
We will come back together again
The only place I'd rather be
Is with you
In your arms
To feel your embrace

You pick me up
When I am down
You mend my wounds
When I am hurt
You are the piece
That completes me

There is such an emptiness in my life
Without you
I dream of you and wake up
With you gone
That is my nightmare

I hope to find you again
Because you are my dream

If you ever walked a mile in my shoes
You would understand how much I love you
It actually hurts
There is pain inside
But only
Because you're not really happy
That breaks me
Everything I've ever done
And stood up for
Made me a better man
And helped you to fall into my heart
I am no fool
But I sincerely love you
Your happiness is still my responsibility
I cannot walk away in these shoes
My happiness is your's now  
If you find someone to take your heart
Away from me
Let me know
I would give them up

I want you to be happy
