Dark Hours

I’d pass

On being the sun

To brighten her days

Make me the moon

That brings light

To her darkest hours

Shadow Puppets

She wasn’t ready to see the bright side

Not yet

She needed to be here

Just a bit longer

So we sat in the dark

Using the light I brought

To her life

To make shadow puppets

On the walls

I brought beauty to her darkness

And made it bearable

Night Love

The love we share is like the night’s sky

A vast expanse of expressed emotion

Totally engulfing us both

Stars are sprinkled across it

They are here to represent

Moments of happiness

And those of joy

Moments that illuminate

Our love and bring it to life

Like our love these stars

Are burning

The moon calms us

Allowing us to close our eyes

And take in each other

When we open them again

A light shines into dark night

Showing us the path

That always leads us

Back to one another

Star crossed lovers

 

Ready, Set, Love Valentine’s Contest Entry

In a world of darkness, we search endlessly for the light that will shine bright enough to scare away everything that has been keeping us down. She is my light. She has always been my light. As I bumped into all the wrong people while walking through the darkness, she was there for me, showing the way. When I finally decided to take the light into my hands, I realized just how bright she was and all the things that she changed in my life. I smile more, I laugh more, and I live more, for her love makes me feel so alive. I love loving her and knowing that the future will forever be bright. Each day I do my best to thank her for the love that she gives me. I will love her, my best friend, my everything, for the rest of my life.

Took Away The Light

Rainclouds are all that I can see

There’s one that always follows me

I don’t know how this could be…

Now that you’re gone…I know…

That I’ll never again see the rainbow

I will never again enjoy the sunlight

Standing in it alone…didn’t feel right

Your presence made it even more bright

Because you are the light…

To my world

The one who offered me direction

Beauty’s reflection

So shy of perfection

Filled with affection

You were my selection

The day you left…

Everything changed

Nothing would ever be the same

My skies would never again be blue

The most important thing in my life was gone…

You…
