    • I am here, heart in hand, ready to share time and poems ith anyone who will give me the time in their day.


    With the passing of copius amounts of time
    While writing of our love with measure and rhyme
    There are secret bells that chime
    Within my heart,
    The tingling begins,
    When you enter the room.
    You may have a multitude of sins
    But because it's you,
    All are forgiven.

    Here take my heart, take my soul,
    I am useless, have no control
    Over what I think or what I say.
    You just seem to affect me in that way.

    Then comes the time,your heart locks me out,
    Please, tell me what this is all about!
    I almost lose my mind,
    For another love you did find.
    Will my heart...
    withstand pain of this kind?

    In glorius shades of warmth, the sun
    Drops down behind the day's run
    across the land the shadows are long.
    I fear I've lost you.
    I hear the clock loudly tick
    and my stomach rolls as if I'm sick.

    Then you return through the bedroom door
    My aching heart begins to soar
    Carrying a bundle across the floor
    Coming close, you step up on toe
    To kiss my cheek and try to show
    What have you here?
    All wrapped up in swaddling clothes.

    Overwhelming love flows through me
    As I bend down to finally see
    Who has stole my lover's heart
    But brings us together, to never part
    It fulfills our dream of a family's start

    Peeking out from the blanket's fold
    Are two brown eyes and a turned up nose
    With lashes so long for a butterfly kiss
    Brushed on soft pink cheeks
    Who be this darling Little Miss?
    Is it you who took my place?
    Why it is our daughter, 
          Bella Grace.

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
