Silence & Solitude...

Silence cleanses the soul
Makes one look inward
Reflect in solitude
Refreshing and crucial
to body and mind
Words are superfluous
The quiet conversation
with our own beings
Is sometimes all we need

Solitude is not lonely
It is spending time with yourself
Searching
Searching for that inner strength
A time to adjust our attitudes
On life
To breathe goodness
Relaxing the mind from the negative
And see everything in perspective

I Had A Dream...

I had a dream
A vivid scene
My funeral
A beautiful white chapel
candles burning
silence...
Ave Maria started playing
I saw my family
saw their agony
But my eyes were drawn to your face
your haggard look
your fall from grace
And I knew you wished you had told me
wished for once that you could hold me
save yourself the agony
of growing old in misery
I woke up crying and thought of you
and how this love story
would never come true...

Longing...

Your eyes speak to me of longing
I see how you watch my lips move
Your eyes soft and inflamed
by the passion in your blood
We sway with the music
I feel the heat from your soul
igniting the melting fire in my heart
You whisper to me
how I love your voice
No sound has ever sounded so sweet
telling me about your life
And never before have I felt so lonely
Very aware that when midnight arrives
in her raven beauty
that we part ways once again
to our separate lives
of commitment and duty
Never admitting how much we care

The Old Man On A Bench...

An old man on a withered bench
Down by the ocean's end
Staring at the stormy sky
wondering if she's there up high
watching him sit in their favorite spot
where he wrote - forget me not...
'Here is the bench where we would sit
you and I a perfect fit'
He whispers softly to the wind
and wishes she would hear
how he misses her
or wipe the tear
that silently creeps down his face
as he remembers a time and place
Her lively eyes
Her soft grey hair
Memories so bitter-sweet
are all he has of her
And in his gnarled old hand
he lovingly holds her wedding band

For My Gran (Vovo Lucia)

Once upon a time
A beautiful woman
travelling over many seas
exotic and mysterious
strong and willful
came to stay in a land far away
She lived a full life
Passionate and determined
she made her way
became a mother
a grandmother
a matriarch
but still the sea beckoned
and back she went
to Portugal
the land of her birth
her roots
She had lost plenty
her husband, her son
and everyone said
