I was innocent, Or was I a fool. He smiled, Courted me lovingly, I gave him my love. He cuddled and cooed, I gave myself to him. He cried crocodile tears, Pretended he was in deep trouble, He pleaded with me to help him. I gave him my money, I signed guarantees on his behalf. I was a fool, He took all, He drives my car, He lives in my house, He runs my business. I live with the homeless.
Wild weary wanderer come to me rest your heavy head Tired hungry travelers all come to the table and be fed When the burden is too heavy and the load too much to bear Stay with me and know just how much I care
Come give me your doubts and worries and fears Be assured I will answer and that I am all ears Listen now, be still and hear the whisper faintest voice Earnestly I seek you I call your response is a choice
Come Saint come sinner come young and old The ends of the earth and the four winds are the flock of my fold Come together in love and unity Strive for greater peace and harmony
Out of the many we find a place all as one Together turning from darkness and learning to face the sun In a beautiful family so many strong All find a place they can belong
There is a peace and love far beyond compare To which, when exposed, you cannot help but share Caught up in the world there is never enough time to do Because it was not for the purpose of doing that I created you!
I created you for love, with love, in love from the dawn of creation You see, I created you to be: be with others and with me in right relation
You are my children and I love you more than you can conceive Enter into the song, join in the feast, receive and come to believe Sense the love coursing alive and warm through your veins In the final analysis love has won; only love remains.
You who are lost, you who have found You who are seeking find your feet on sacred solid ground Here there is a place of truth and light Light a blazing beacon in the blackest night Here is a place of refreshment and rest Here I take you in my arms and hold you close to my chest
I have written my name upon your heart burned my word into your mind In the Father Son and Holy Spirit you have been SIGNED
Just relax and try to let go of the ill you feel Let me in and slowly begin to heal
I have set my SEAL upon your heart I have marked you as my own From now on you will never be alone
I died to conquer sin and death and so DELIVER Life in abundance and healing river
So SIGNED SEALED and DELIVERED now I SEND Send you out to be fishers of men
You are mine and I AM YOURS Always and forever from present day to eternity's shores
I speak a thousand words in a glance, Propose to you in a text, generally be the guy I was meant to be. And you still love me for me. What is it that keeps you close to me? Is it my pretend swag? My book sense? My love of expression? My eyes? All of the above, or more likely, none? I don’t know why and I don’t know how, but I won’t concern myself with it. I love you too, although I don’t say it much and I can’t assume you kow. But it’s true, I love you too much to let you go, do too much to consider having a way out of the ways that we love each other. ~signed the lover from afar.
just another entry in the poetry journal. I'm not sure if I submitted this before, but I doubt it.
