Poem#95

I wish someone could give you an ear to hear your story.
I wish someone could give you an eye to behold your beauty.
I wish someone could give you some lips to match your smile.
I wish someone could give you some arms to hold you tight.
I wish someone could give you a back to share your load.
I wish someone could give you some legs to walk beside you.
I wish someone could give you a heart to show you how precious you are.
I wish someone could give you the words to a love song.
I wish it could be me.

Title: Counting Time
Anxiety increases when
Nearing the time recorded.
Together will join us again,
Impatience will be aborted.

Counting the time remaining
Indicates we importantly wait.
Pressure adds to the straining,
Advancing upon the date.

Two cannot be kept apart
In the face of such agreement.
Oneness has already had its start,
Nodding in its achievement.

Poem#92

I hear voices. Sometimes I record them. Enjoy.

Good Morning GF,
There was too much talking going on for me to sleep.
It went something like this:

Heart: Did you read that poem? I need a hug.
Head: Yes, pretty amazing. You can't have one.
Heart: What? You did read that poem didn't you? She was screaming out she needs a hug also.
Head: I read it. I understand how you feel. It would be impractical, sorry.
Heart: What? Don't you get what that poem was saying? I need a hug.
Head: Look, I read it. I get it, but it's not happening. We can't drive and she is busy.
Heart: Busy? What is more important than a hug? Tell her to come over.
Head: No. You know it is an hour drive, each way. It's late, it's dark. Please, just wait.
Heart: Wait? No, I need a hug. Ask her to come over.
Head: No. That would be pressuring her. You know she's been feeling pressured lately. She has a vacation coming up. Leave her alone. She'll hug you when she gets back.
Heart: Back? I can't wait that long. Beg her to come over.
Head: No. Enough. Go to sleep.
Heart: Sleep? Who can sleep? Can't we just cut the cast off and drive over?
Head: Oh, come on. What a stupid suggestion. Cut the cast off. That foot needs to heal properly. What if something happened to it. We'd be limping the rest of our lives.
Heart: Don't care. Let's go.
Head: We are not going anywhere except to bed. Go to sleep.
...
Heart: You awake? I need a hug.
Head: Will you keep it down, I'm trying to sleep.
...
Heart: You awake? I need a hug.
Head: Sleep, go to sleep.
...
Heart: You awake? I need a hug. Hear the frogs out there?
Head: Enough already. I'm awake. You happy?
Heart: Yes and no.

 

Poem#91

The energy runs through
The wires of my soul.
Rebuilding what’s broken,
Making it all whole.

Let the current’s flow
Help clean the past.
Giving clearer perspective
Of what has passed.

A new dawn awakens,
Thanks to this new source.
Life will be amazing
Following this new course.

 

Poem#90

For a friend.

Happy Birthday Helen
Thought it was 2 days hence.
Nothing like a ship sailing
To remove all the suspense.

Now being on the same page,
Everything caught up to speed.
It is obvious to all
A big celebration is in need.

It is your 60th.
One of those land mark dates.
Lots of mountains conquered,
Plenty of memories to relate.

But what is the right present
With no address for sending.
And not many nickels
Available for spending.

A piece of my heart,
My best wishes I send.
For having been my muse
And being a very good friend.
