If Only I Knew You When…©

angels right side

If only I knew you when

My heart was no longer tainted by past loves

Disappointed by friends and lovers

Now the only comfort to children

Who’s hearts have been prey to my torment

If only our time was pure and free

To be shaped into something special

We could be a different kind of happy

One that everyone would envy

If only I knew you when…


In Between The Lines©

You tell me a story and I pick it a part
I have to see if what you tell me really makes sense
Or must I read between the lines

You hide behind your words
Afraid to come clean with your pain, with your fears
Wrapped comfy in your disguise
While I sit back asking why your words seem so uncertain to me
I think of how I can pry, pry out the truth
The truth of the words that hide behinds your words

Then tears roll upon your rose filled checks
I hear your breathing quicken and
your arms wrapped firmly around yourself
Shaking your head from left to right
Realizing that there is no more running
You have to tell me all there is to tell

Twitching your fingers
Rolling your eyes
Finally the words start pouring out
And then I’m sorry that I asked
For the truth in between your lines
But I listen because I love you and that’s
What love is


The Right One©

Each time the phone rings she’s hoping it’s him

Sadly it turns out to be another

And not the one for whom her heart yearns for


She listens to his words ever so politely

As she’s thinking of what the words might have been

If they had come from him, the man of her dreams


Thinking of just the right words so as not to hurt him

She politely says “sorry,

I must now be on my way, as the children waiting,

Oh thanks for the call”.


You can hear the disappointment in his sigh

as he reluctantly says good night

I can only wonder if he too knows that he’s not the man of her dreams

Advice for happily ever after

Friends That Last©

by Felina Silver Robinson

Growing up when life was harder

My friends were my strength


Those same friends

Still remain

We can talk about than and now

We don’t have to see each other

To know each other

Memories carry us through

We mourn those we’ve lost

We talk each other through

Our newest trials and tribulations

It’s amazing

That no matter how much time has passed

We can say anything

Ask anything


Do anything

Because we are friends that last

That don’t have to ask

We just do what’s needed


Happy To Put Away My Tears©

by Felina Silver Robinson


There sits a smile upon my face

I can now pack away my tears


For many years

It’s never to late

For a clean slate

To look life straight in the eye


Give it another try

No more living a lie

Because of some other guy

My heart now belongs to someone new

And I no longer carry memories of you

I’m happy to put away my tears


Full Moon Tonight©

by Felina Silver Robinson

It’s a full moon tonight

All is just right

And to my delight

There’s a dream

I’m dreaming

That stars you

There’s nothing else to do

But let it all play out

A bed full of roses

A roaring fire

Candle lit dinner

The smell of Jasmine in the air

There’s truly no reason for despair

Close your eyes

And taste the wine

Follow your heart

And dream with me
