Sunny day sat In my parked car wife passed on retired now not much to do but sit and watch the pretty girls go by
all dressed In summer such a lovely site to
see
But not once with my wife  did my eye ever stray stayed faith to her thoughtout the twenty years
together we did have
But
since I've been on my own many times my eyes have gone a wondering but I see harm just old
man
dreaming
Back when I was younger then so full of life but getting older now by the day but a pretty can still cause my head turn to appreciate what I
see

I never knew how you cared-and never felt so
Loved, until I found I was out of control and
Fell from up above. You don't deny me you,
I don't deny you me-and so elated was my
Heart when you sat ahead of my seat. I felt
That day the bus ride would never really
End, and something in me never knew
What lied around the bend.
Our sunshine fell from the sky like sparkling
Drops of dew, and when I see the golden
Flowers I always think of you. I feel
This love I have for you is very strong!
As you called for a stop 'cause you got
Sick-we were at the mission just past dawn.
Why when you got sick I fell in love I really
Cannot say, but then again that bus ride still
Continues to this day...

Sat In my usaul place In the mornings local supermarket cafe  bacon bap and coffee In hand watching the world pass me
by
And at that moments a thought  crosses my mind nothing unusual I no but people walk by as If I'm not there
I'm
thinking
I'm like behind
a two way mirror Invisable to the outside world but I see everything oh how
strange

I remember last night
With a sunset sky
Pink
Lilac
Baby blues and glimmering golds
I wanted to see you today
But I couldn't
Not really
I remember last night
When we talked until the streetlights turned on
When I put little white daisies in your hair
And you smiled for me
I wanted to do that tonight
But I couldn't
Sadly
I remember last night
When we sat by the creek
And caught fireflies
Flickering in the dimming light
Like little neon stars
I wanted to do that tonight
But I couldn't
And it hurt
I just wish I could feel okay, right next to you

Sitting drinking coffee In my local cafe the empty chair beside me where my wife once sat I truly miss
her
I miss her laughter and her smiling face I still her feel her here as If only yesterday when she went
away
Sat here drinking coffee total recall of our time together and of love we had for each other oh If she could see me
now
For I'm only half the man I used to be since my sweetheart went away but all the good times still In my heart my memories
Sat
drinking coffee In my local cafe with nothing much to do but to survive on memory of days now gone by of the sweet girl I once
knew

Her clohes that laid upon my empy chairs where once my love did sit echoes of her laughter
still ringing In my ears
Her voice trapped between my walls and of a her spirit that never left me for I believe true never
dies
and my cat Elsa that never knew of her now occupys her chair just as If she knew my wife once sar there for I
think
she feel the love
Sometimes I think Elsa she still can feel our love that never left this house perhaps Elsa hears her voice
to
Sometimes when my cat Elsa gazes for long periods of time Into nothing I think she Is seeing my wife spirit

I took more flowers to my darling today sun shining
birds singing beautiful
so peaceful just a light  
breeze
I placed her flowers and she has her teddy In a sealed jar I put there for
her there are some
plants
Also, some more of her favourite ornaments I was sat there talking to her that I always do and I said to Helen
on a day wonderful like today beautiful sunny blue sky, I wouldn't mind moving In with
you
to be free of all these every struggle of life far too many pressures
these
days for average Joe like me very little
money retired can't afford to do anything
no
wife anymore at times life can seem a bit pointless but I shall carry
on
Life can be very difficult at times but no matter how hard
I'll make it through  somehow
my education has turned into a
competition i never agreed to enter.
i don't hate learning, but i hate
being taught by teachers who don't
care who really just work here
so they can coach.
everyone says, its preparing
you for the real world.
so the first 13 years of my education
is just a trial run?
i don't know what day of the week
or month it is, i think in test dates
and deadlines.
they say you need a good ACT/SAT
score to get into a good college.
fun fact: only 21% of people work
in the area that they majored in.
they make it seem like everything
is depending on this test.
i don't know how much
longer i can handle this weight
and pressure to perform.
i used to be gifted way back when
but now i'm not because i wan't
continually challenged.
i just need to make it through
this semester, then it'll be over for
a couple months, then the cycle
will start again...

Looking for love, looking at love
Looking for God, looking at God
Looking for infinity, looking at infinity

Love, God, Infinity.
I have always been looking
at You.
I Am You.
Love, God, Infinity.
These are so often renamed.
Denied.
Covered up with a mask.
A false name.

You asked me a question,
Is there a name for this fear?
Yes,
There are many names
Many masks
Many costumes.

With each name comes separation.
With each name comes the belief that this separation is
Reality.

Names are
given
And names are
chosen
And only one name
Exists.

Am I looking for
Or looking at?
Is there a name for this love?
Sat Nam.
