I’ve Had It©

There is no end to what I can do

No ease in what I have to say

I can do it with or without feeling

On any given day

But I’d like the comfort of you warmth

And

The feel of your touch

When we are together it’s just magnetic

Which is why I have to end it

Because I just can’t seem to get anything done

And

I’ve had it!

A Mother Lost©

A mother loves her child

Through thick and thin

Inside and Out

The question is

Does she love herself the same

Mother and child

Two peas in a pod

Filled with laughter

Filled with hope

Lending a hand wherever it’s needed

Giving smiles a mile long with hugs that comfort

A mothers job is never done

A mothers job is never easy

Sometimes the toll it takes goes unseen

Sometimes the wounds just won’t heal

Sometimes there’s no more running and no more hiding

Sometimes those who vowed to protect her just can’t do what it takes to save her

So feeling she no longer has a choice

She thinks it best to leave this place

The Place she’s called home

With those she’s dedicated her life to

But she chooses to leave without them

Including her child

The one she adores

The one she vowed to protect at any cost

Maybe, just maybe

She felt this what was best

So now she’s gone

Seated high above with the angels

Looking down on her child

Hoping to be forgiven

For what she felt was right

Believing things would be better

A mother will always do anything

To protect those she loves

This mother was lost

But now she’s found

High in the sky

Just glance up above and you may see her

She’s the one with the bubbly laugh

And the smile that doesn’t quit

This poem is dedicated to a friend of mine who passed away recently.

She leaves behind her loving son and new husband. May she find her peace in the sky above.

How Lucky I am©

When I was young

I had a dream

Like all little girls do

I dreamed that I was going to grow up

And

One day become

Mrs. Robinson

All I wanted was happiness in between

Full of love and family

It’s certainly a common dream

But knowing who you would end up being

And knowing this as a child

Is something quite special

As a child

I never put the face and the name together

As the years passed I met Joe

Although I knew his last name was Robinson

I never put two and two together

That the Joe I grew up knowing

Was the same Joe Robinson I would eventually marry

When I think about it now

It’s almost like a fairytale

Although 9 years my senior

It didn’t seem to faze me

There was no one else that had

Ever captured my heart the way he had

Nor the way he still does

There has always been something about his smile

How it lays perfectly across his face

Each time our eyes met

There was such a twinkle that danced from within his eyes

His cheeks were always rosy

And the gentle laugh that danced at the edge of each word he uttered

Kept me listening and hanging

To all he had to say

And making me wish I never had to leave

I feel so lucky to have been able to have a love for so long

And then following through on the feelings

Until we were wedded

Although we both had other partners

We finally found our way

And in the end we ended up where we were always meant to be

So if you have ever had a dream

Don’t let it go

It might not come today or tomorrow

Just wait

It will find its own way

True love takes time, patience and dedication

How lucky I am to have my JR

And living in my real-life dream world

Where nothing is perfect

But is indeed real

And worth each moment of living

Seasons Change©

I gazed upon my garden

Only to see it changing

I spied the first leaves turn colors

from a strong green to a bright yellow-orange

This sign reminds us of winters cold chill

No more flip-flops or shorts that belong to hot summer days

Confused roses are budding

But I wonder if the cold nights air will leave them limp and lifeless on the next morn

Leaves on the ground

Crunching underfoot

Golden sunrises and sunsets

Extra puffy clouds scatter across the sky

Howling winds are your frequent companion

Oh how I love it when the “Seasons Change”

Oh The Way She Makes Me Feel©

Curves that just don’t quit

Toes that curl at his touch

Fingers that knock the tension out of any muscle

Hands that sooth every ache in any head

There’s not a ripple in any ocean that can me feel the way she makes me feel

When she speaks I’m completely mesmerized

By each word that roles of her tongue

I can no longer concentrate on anything else

She has the cutest little laugh when she’s nervous

Whenever I bring my friends around

There’s a shyness about her

That intrigues all who meet her

But I have to remind them all that she’s my girl

And there are some things I’m just not willing to share

I feel so lucky to have her to comfort me and the end of each day

Oh The Way She Makes Me Feel

Don’t you wish you hand some one like her to start and end your night

Domestic Violence

When Someone You Know Needs Help!©

I know you’ve seen it

But were too embarrassed

To do anything

To say anything

Sometimes you were paralyzed with fear from what you saw

You had nightmares riddled with guilt

Wondering if anything became of what you saw

But told no one about

Your next encounter

Is in your very own building

You’re unlocking your apartment door

And

You spot a child in the corridor with his father

Being punched in the face

Then kicked in the buttox

He couldn’t have been more than 9 years old

You know there is nothing that warrants that type of abuse

Domestic Violence has all sorts of ages

All sorts faces

The reasons

Excuses are endlessly mounted

By

Alcoholics

Those suffering from

Mental Illness

Head Injuries

And

Anger Management

Sometimes though

It’s due to just plain ignorance

When we don’t teach

There’s nothing to learn

When we don’t correct bad behavior

It just continues

When we allow the behavior

We nourish it

When we let the behavior go unpunished

More innocent people end up maimed or dying

Then we are left with the aftermath

Families in therapy for what could be the rest of their lives

Don’t stand there watching

When Someone You Know Needs Help!

You never know when fate is aimed your way

Guilt and innocence

You pick a side

This poem is one of many written in the hopes of raising awareness about domestic violence.  This is a serious problem that has plagued us all for decades even centuries. I believe its been inbred in many and they are not even aware of what they are doing nor are the aware of the consequences to themselves or their victims.  Changes can only be made once the problem is acknowledged and both the victim and the abuser become willing to take action only then can progress be made. Are you ready to lend a hand or a shoulder to those in need? Take Action and defeat the beast known as Domestic Violence.

Domestic Violence

Why?©

Why when I tell you the truth

You insist it’s a lie

You frisk me like a thief in the night

Searching for what

I can only imagine

You come up empty handed

But I’m not so lucky

I end up with the whites of your knuckles

Tattooed across my body

Like an artist paints his canvas

Even as I quiver

And tears run down my face

Your bantering continues to ring through my ears

A small red puddle starts to gather at me feet

Your guess is as good as mine

As to where it comes from

After a while I can no longer hear your voice

I’ve drifted off to somewhere else

Somewhere darker and yet serene

Anything is better than here

I’m thinking to myself

Why couldn’t I get others to listen

To believe what I was saying

Didn’t they wonder why

I was always covered up

Even on the warmest day

Didn’t they wonder why

I always had to run home

As if being time in a race and may the best one win

They never questioned why my phone was always ringing

And the tears streamed down my face

Each day I was trapped

And there was no turning back

There was nowhere to run

Nowhere to hide

I had run out of time

And now the phantom had come to collect me

Before it was my time

And all because no one ever questioned

Why?
