Will You Be My Queen?© by Felina Silver Robinson

I fear that I will not see tomorrow
I know they are coming for me and I’m powerless to stop them
My aging vessel is on the decline
I’m clearly running out of time
I’ve been told to stay out of the light
For my skin surely cannot bear it
But I yearn daily for the view of human life and activity
That has not been a part of my daily life for centuries
I may not breathe the air as you do
The land I live on is not that of the living
I stop here just to steal glances of what I’ve never been
And what I yearn to be
If you’ll share your blood with me I’ll gladly take it
It will buy me a little more time
But it won’t last for long
So if there is anything you have to say
Just say it
If you care to join me
Say the word and I’ll gladly make you my queen
And we can walk the land of the undead together
All it takes is a little nibble here and a little nibble there
Then I’ll forever adore you

Til We Meet Again© by Felina Silver Robinson

Late one night not knowing the score
I opened the door trying to find you
Little did I know that something beastly beat me to it
His trail left clearly for all to see
There’s no word yet on where you might be
If only I had listened and stayed home instead of fishing
Maybe I could have saved you
But now I fear that the grim has come to take you
And now you’ll have to wait until he comes to find me
Til then just wait for me patiently for we’re sure to meet again

Where have you gone© by Felina Silver Robinson

Bloody footprints on the floor
In a trail out the front door
Broken glass scattered about
The TV blaring meant to block out your screams
No one know where you’ve gone
Still alive or are you dead
How much time till we know
I grow impatient sitting here waiting
Then I hear footsteps at my back
I feel the hair stand atop my neck
I turn slowly and to my surprise
You stand there grinning asking if I liked your surprise
I don’t know if I should be glad or mad
My heart itself is still shaking

Retro© by Felina Silver Robinson

Living life as we turn back time
The sounds of yesterday ring loudly in our ears
Carefree wild hairdo test our limits
Short skirts and long boots
Even retro furniture is becoming the new old look
All we need now is to twist and shout
To rock hopping heart stopping music
To pass our time away
Wishing you could come back to stay
Old movies
Old cars
Another chance to look up at the stars
Everyone saying they kept delaying
Life every time it passed them by
Now given a chance to look back
Lift your glass and give a toast
To all those things and people who helped you get there and back

The Laugh© by Felina Silver Robinson

The laugh that starts at the toes and ends at the nose
That brings on the tears that starts to hurt your ears
And makes your stomach want to pounce
You can’t remember where it came from
By now you’ve laughed so long you want to
Send it back to where it came from
But there isn’t any doubt that when next it comes
You’ll be happy to have
A laugh that starts at the toes and ends at the nose
So that you can end the wicked curse
Of the worst frown in town

Our Final Goodbye© by Felina Silver Robinson

Today we all gathered at your favorite church
Friends and family near and far
All differences aside to be by your side
Tears filled every eye in the room
As the Father honored your life
And told you of your journey ahead
We returned to your family home
To further celebrate your life
I was glad to walk away with a pyramid of your ashes
I was glad to have time to meet others who loved you as I always will
I was glad to know I wasn’t alone in my grieving for you
Now we will carry on in remembrance of you
Keeping all promises to live our lives to the fullest

When I’m Without Your Love© by Felina Silver Robinson

When I’m without your love
All is wrong and I lose myself
When I’m without your love
I can’t eat, drink or work
My body aches from head to toe
When I’m without your love
You are the beat in my heart
The breath in my lungs
The voice in my mouth
When I’m without your love
I’m nothing but an empty shell

When I Lost You© by Felina Silver Robinson

The rain was pouring down hard
The streets were flooded
The wind was blowing hard
There was a misplaced scent of Jasmine in the air
I heard tire screech and metal crash
My heart dropped
And that’s when I know I had lost you
My eyes quickly filled with tears
I sat frantically rocking back and forth
The doorbell rang and the footsteps got closer
The police were talking but I was in a trance staring straight into space
Ten years later
They never found your killer
And your room remains just the same
I sit hoping that one day you’ll still come waltzing through the front door
On paper I lost you
In my heart you remain here always

Engagement Day© by Felina Silver Robinson

Your gentle touch
Your sweet sentiments whispered softly in my ear
Your warm kiss upon my waiting neck
Your sincere laughs at all my jokes
Your big hello as I open the door
Your patient kiss goodnight
These are the things I dare not live without
So now I walk to you fathers door
To ask him for your hand along with his blessings
I shake at the thought of his reply
I pray that he not doubt me
I pray that he trusts my love and intentions
There is no one else I’d rather share my life with
The door opens
He looks me over and over and up and down
Though not its visible I know I’m sweating
He laughs a big laugh and says I know what you’re doing
And just why you’re here
I’ve been sitting here waiting for the day that you’d come knocking at my door
He tells me that no man has ever made his daughter smile so and make her eyes shine they way that I do
I laugh for a moment and then say “god bless you”
And he says “you can just call me dad”
We sit and we laugh for hours
The door opens and there you stand
There I kneel placing my mothers ring on your finger

Blessed© by Felina Silver Robinson

I have been blessed with the gift of family and friends
Blessed with yet another chance at life
Even after denying where I’ve been
Blessed with the forgiveness of all my wrong doings
And healed from all the pain from within
I’ve made no deal with the devil
I’ve not traded my soul just so that I could grow old
I’ve only done what I was asked and waited til told to return
I’m here now doing as I’ve been instructed
Being certain to do all things right this time
I’ve been blessed with another life and a chance to make all things right

What I Believe© by Felina Silver Robinson

I listen to all that you say
I find myself shaking my head
I’m not always trust what I hear
But I know all I’ve done to get here
I believe that if I stand by long enough
You will reveal all things to me
I believe if I a patient
You will reward my loyalty
I believe if I leave my door open
Others will follow with intrigue
I believe if others believe our world could live on forever

Friends In High Places© by Felina Silver Robinson

My friends are in high places
Seated quite high
One on the left and one on the right
They keep watch over plenty
They’re entrusted to rule the world
I’m not usually someone to follow
But this time I’ve chosen the path
I promised to be faithful
If you show me a thing or too
I will lead them to you quickly
But only if you’ll save them
And send them back to me
I have friends in high places
But it means nothing if I can’t trust them,

Pieces© by Felina Silver Robinson

I start here and end up there
Pieces of me have been scattered all about
So I can blend in almost anywhere
They will no longer hear my voice
They will no longer see my face
So there is no one that could ever take my place
As l lay quietly beneath their feet while they take in the view
They may be lucky enough to smell my scent if the wind blows
Or a memory of me may pop into their thoughts as they remember me
Wherever there is a piece of me
I always close behind

I ask for nothing© by Felina Silver Robinson

You’ve given me the gift of life
A good moral compass
The desire to be someone that others look to
The determination to be nothing like you
I ask for nothing from you
I stand here alone
Proud to be here
With all the past behind me
And everything before me

The Company I Keep© by Felina Silver Robinson

Some near, some far
Some young, some old
Some walking, some rolling
The Company I Keep is mesmerizing
Some rich, some poor
Some good, some bad
Some just meant to be left behind
The Company I Keep are all shapes and sizes
They ask for nothing, but I give them something
They live hard, they play hard, but they weep softly
They live for the moment, pressure in hand
They fight for what they believe in
They fight each day to stay alive
The Company I Keep can’t be replaced Some rich, some poor
They can’t be bought or sold
They are my friends, they are my family, they are all just like me

Perfect© by Felina Silver Robinson

A picturesque sunset
On a beach where no one knows your name
But they treat you just the same
Everyone’s like family only having nice things to say
Begging you to stay to lift a glass at the end of the day
To cheer on new friendships and to be grateful for life and all its gifts
You’re never alone but can leave when you want to no excuses needed
Space and time enough for all
The only wish is for every day to be just like this

You Are My Person© by Felina Silver Robinson

There is only one person I would turn to
One person I would share my deepest darkest secrets with
One person who could hold me up when I can no longer stand
The one with whom I feel no shame
I can take off my scarf and my lack of hair doesn’t turn you away
You pick me up when I’m at my lowest low
And I’m more than proud  and happy that “you are my person”
Through thick and thin and for better or for worse in good times and bad

There’s No One Better Than You© by Felina Silver Robinson

There’s no one better than you
When the chips are down
When there’s no one else around
When the good times go bad
When the days a downer and we need a rebounder
When thick and thin has grown into sin
And there’s nothing left to do but begin again
There’s none better than you

Frost© by Felina Silver Robinson

Frost
The line between the warmth and cold
The reminder that winters on its way
A feeling that is sometimes welcomed when overheated from a run
But can be dangerous when you are unredressed
Frost can keep you awake but also has the power to knock you out
Frost
It’s a cool light coating
Packing more strength than you know
Frost is a silent killer of crops and plants
There are all types of frosts
There’s white frost, black frost, window frost and advection frost
Then you have to deal with its dew point
The atmospheric icing
Desublimation and the frost point
Don’t forget the liquid phase, the crystals
Water vapor, the supercooled droplets

Frost, sometimes visible sometimes invisible
Always cold and lingering just like love

Hanging On the Love Line© by Felina Silver Robinson

You called me on the phone, I answered but I’m speechless
You pour out all the loving words you can muster
But I just sit on my sofa staring out into the open
With no expression or emotions
Listening to the same old same old has run me down
So they can see each other’s faces as they talk
Hanging on the love line is getting more than old
What a welcome comfort to know that within a circle
I don’t know how many times I’ve been told
That this is the last time I will need forgive your cheating ways
Everyone deserves better days
So I’m getting off of this love line
Because I know that there is something more in store for me
So keep your love line for the next one in line

Cheated Out Of Life© by Felina Silver Robinson

There once was a girl who never asked for much
But like every other kid she wanted to be noticed
She yearned to be loved and cared for
Like all the other members of her family
This is no Cinderella story
But it’s a truly unforgettable piece
She worked so hard day and night
Bud never did it please her
She never felt she had a house or a home for
Her parents never gave her any attention
Except when school called wanting to suspend her
All she did was nod off in class due to endless sleepless days
She didn’t want to close her eyes for fear she might be abandoned
An unloved child turned to the streets drinking smoking and using drugs
Anger built up striking out at innocent people before her
A stint in jail proves to be too much
She now her life has lost value and she wants to end it
We pray for her now as she lies lifeless
Body shaking and mind empty
We all stand by waiting for word wishing she had a chance at life
Instead she was cheated
Never having a job she could be proud of
Or the chance to marry the man she truly loved
No babies, no memories to carry forward
A life she wishes she could do over again
