Voices on the Wind

The golden leaves are blowing,

A crystal blue river is flowing,

Birds are singing just above,

As I look for the perfect love.

 

The wind is blowing in my ear,

Is that your gentle voice I hear?

I look around only to see,

No one is standing close to me.

 

The sun is shining along the river,

Cooling air makes my body quiver.

I feel your warm and loving embrace,

But, the sunlight hides your face.

 

Only a moment will pass,

Will the peaceful feeling last?

I feel you touch my soul again,

Are you speaking through the wind?

His Kiss


By, Lilly Maxwell, Guest Blogger

Lilly Maxwell-His Kiss poem

©Lilly Maxwell

He hugged me,

Came closer and kissed me.

He kissed me in the most passionate way,

I’ve ever been kissed I felt my mind go blank.

My stomach went to knots,

My heart was pounding against my chest.

I loved the feeling and I never wanted it to stop,

I really like him and I know he likes me too.

Love left my heart,

I hated being alone and torn apart.

I cried each night and people didn’t know,

Then, I saw him.

Love was slowly creeping back in,

I’m afraid to let it in.

I’m afraid of getting left behind again.

I’ve been hurt so much.

I’m afraid to love again,

He’s my best friend .

I want to let him in.

But I’m afraid,

I’ll get left again.

The White Topped Dress

The world is made up of a multitude of people,

Each and every person wants to be treated equal.

There are a lot of tough times and good ones too,

However, there are so many things we like to do.

 

It is difficult to tell someone how you feel,

Nevertheless, when I tell you my love is real.

Currently, I feel like my world has faded to black,

I feel there is no one who can bring the color back.

 

I don’t feel like there is any one I can lean on,

Today, I know you are not here and you are gone.

Everything I touch seems to turn into a mess,

Since I met the girl  wearing the white topped dress.

Our Dream Dance

Dedicated to JD

Missing your arms and touch tonight,
Our song floods my ears and entices my mind.
I close my eyes and picture a time when,
We had it all, because we had each other.

I never thought I would be feeling so alone without you,
Dancing together in my dreams and kissing your sweet lips.
Your love changed me in ways that you will never know,
Do you remember the way we met and the nights we shared?

I never felt so in love with a person before I met you,
Remind me of the way, we lost ourselves in each other.
I need you now to just smile and say something clever,
However, you are a dream now that I meet each night.

We were so close to finally having what we want,
Being in love with you took my breath away.
I gave you my heart so many years ago,
I force a smile when my heart is shattering.

How do I reach out to a memory that has faded?
Do I ever enter your thoughts and your mind?
The pain shows me that you were mine once,
My heart hasn’t healed and there is nothing I can do.

Praying and crying won’t bring you back to me,
It has been so long, since we ignited that everlasting fire.
All the feelings we felt and the nights we spent together.
Came to an abrupt end and that is what truly hurts the most.

Coming Home


By, Crystal S Kauffman, Staff Writer

impossible God

©Unknown

You’re the one I look to when my life falls apart,
You have had me in your hands from the start.
My life was bleak when I decided to move away,
So today, I come back home to you and here I will stay.

I know you will accept me, so I don’t feel an ounce of fear,
I am humbled, on my knees, and silently listening to hear.
Where do I go next as I choose to let you guide me,
You are the only the one in this world that can set me free.

Only you know where my life will ultimately lead,
I haven’t forgotten that I gave you my heart and its deed.
I have stumbled through life and looked for guidance from all,
Instead, I found a ton of strength the moment I took my fall.

I will continue to grow in the ways you choose for my life,
Despite the trials and tribulations that will cut like a knife.
Lord, I know you are in control of my life and my future,
Therefore, the peace will replace the temporary sutures.
