Only Thoughts

No words today...
Only thoughts
that move my heart.

Thoughts of loss
thoughts of pain
thoughts of love
thoughts of what was
thoughts of surviving
thoughts of God
thoughts of Heaven's gain
and thoughts of how life
could have been
for an angel I call mine...

Thoughts...only thoughts
I've thought a million times.

 In silence I
wander, aimlessly,
foreward ,my heart
grasping yesterdays

Bitter sweet the
memories ...

To my heart I hold
them near - brushing
from each a fallen

Lord, please, keep me
focused on the light
before me, and take from
my memory-
the remembrance of those
things that steal away
my inner peace.

Lonely Heart

O love inside my heart
Desiring nothing more
than peace and a place
where love can nourish
on love and grow to the
height of the heavens,
and the depths of time.

Where two hearts can grow
as one, feel as one, desire
as one, live as one and
when eternal night falls,
sleep in death as one.

O love have thy no mercy
must I spend eternity
seeking what was not meant
to be?

Find comfort O love that
lives inside my heart...
for you have fed many a lonely
soul in their times of need.

God First

God First

Tho my heart was broken
I thought beyond repair
In my heart I always knew
That God was always there.

That the shivers of pain
cutting into my heart
Angels would repair...
with love and tender care.

That as long as my faith
is stronger than heartache
and strive.....I may stumble
and fall but I won't stay down
as long as I put God first
in my life.

Quite Time

 The quite time awakens
thoughts long thought
forgotten. . .
Awaking memories buried
beneath layers of yesterdays,
pealing away moments of
laughter and tears...revealing
the joys and woes that being
alive brings into ones life.

O quite time, pour out
the memories of yesteryears
created by day to day living
Least I forget mistakes made
and am tempted to make the same
mistakes again.

Sleep not O memory! Awaken!
Mingle with the quite time
Renew with memories of old
thoughts to strengthen my heart
mind, and soul.

   It's New Year's day 2019. My thoughts are many but my words are few. If I could find the words to express emotions locked away....bound would be hearts beyond the heart in me. jt       4:53pm January 1, 2019



Betray Not Another's Love

I am but a lowly traveler
on life's roads of ups
and downs...
I see through my inner eyes
the things behind and before me.

Betray not the love or trust
of any...
For love is beyond the reach
of those who seek love- seeking
only to poccess love.

Trust and love go hand in hand
dare not to think you can control
your own heart-when love comes
a calling.

Love is not weak- love has brought
many with a cold heart to their knees.

Threading the Waters

Threading the Waters

I have gone beyond my world
confronted the foe ,planted
seeds of love in amidst
the throns that there did

I have followed my heart and
saw where troubled souls and
dispair mingle together in
search of what they feel
but do not know.

Where being alone is better
for me than threading the
waters of lost souls....
Where one cannot detinguish
a weed from a rose.

I seek now the peace and quite
where weeds have over taken
the flowers but hope still

The Need To Love

The Need To Love

As the light dimmeth in thine eyes
So goeth thy life
As thy love standeth in the darkness
So cometh the loneliness.

For out of thine heart rains those
things thy heart seeks to make
itself complete.

Tho love touches lives, none, not you
nor I, can capture love and place love
in another's hands.

The heart that cries out in the darkness
for love, one can not know the emptiness
it seeks to fill, tho ye have known love
ye have not known mine.

Cry O heart of mine,cry for love..scream
for love...for to feel the need for love
is far better than to feel nothing.

Take My Hand Once More


Take My Hand Once More

Take my hand Lord, my heart is breaking
and the tears I cannot control.

Take my hand Lord, that I might, once more,
feel your presences in my life and in my

Wipe away the tears that fall, and betray
my faith.

Take my hand Lord and walk with me through
this day.

Whisper in my ear the stories of old- you
told me long ago...
When as a child , craving to enter the light
that called me in, and you told me 'no.'

Take my hand once more Lord...
Give me the strength to journey on,
the courage to stand against the night
the wisdom to know the limits you set
for my life. And . . .
The heart to keep on loving those who love,
and don't love me.

Take my hand once more Lord. . .

Open for me the doors to my destiny.
