Father

entry picture

You ask if I believe in God...
How can I not?

To deny my Father
means I leave my existence
to some 30 year old predator
who impregnated a girl half his age
and left her to raise their child
in the wilderness, among wolves 
that feed on loneliness and despair.

Without my Father, I would never know
that after suffering comes deliverance,
pain leads to compassion,
forgiveness breaks b...

Red Pearl

Red Pearl

 

You are such a beautiful woman and I spent my life trying to find you

as I look at the waters of the beach, so beautiful and so sparkling blue

but in the water, I see something shining and I see it staring at me

I see it and I swam for it and I saw millions of diamonds

In The Shadow of Your Smile

I live in the shadow of your smile

And I like the way it lights your eyes;

I like your style

 

My senses stir with the fragrance of your soul

And I like the way it lingers

So I’ll linger too, for a while

 

My heartbeat races when we touch

And I like your warmth; the way you feel

I like your smile

 

You way you talk is like a song

That plays easy on my ears
