Short Poems Number 1
You Are My Sunshine
This morning when I awoke
the sun peered through my window,
and I felt so alive.
You reached over towards me
and there you kissed me,
you gave me more life.
The warmth of your body next to me,
gives me a heartbeat
filled with love.
the smell of your sweet body,
opens thoughts to my own secret garden.
The sun peered through my window
this morning when I awoke,
I felt so aline -
because you are truely my sunshine
Dear Father I look up to you
for working all of your life,
and helping mother bring me up on the right side -
through all of our troubles and strife.
Dear Father you are so gentle and kind,
and so special to me in every way.
And you are never ever far from my mind
as I think of you with each and every new day.
But now all grown up and with memories deep,
although left home and miles apart.
All of these treasures I get to keep,
because Dear Father -
You are still in my heart.
The birds are singing
they call your name.
the blossom is in full bloom
I smell your presence.
The sun is shining through my window
I feel your warmth
With all this nature around me
I am closer to you than you think.
An Angel Looks Over
It was a cool summer's evening
I was sitting in the garden
with my partner.
On the patio we both sat on the swing chair
arms around each other.
As she started to fall asleep in my arms
I saw a bright light in the sky.
Brighter than anything I had seen before.
My body felt at peace
and my mind relaxed
as I was transfixed on this wonderful light.
I held my partner tight and whispered
I love you - things will be fine.
I then gave her one more kiss on the forehead
when I once again looked up towards the heavens.
It was then that I realised
that this was no ordinary light
This was our Angel looking over us.
You used to say you loved me
you used to say you cared,
your love for me was very strong
of that i'm now aware.
And yet you turned and left me
to find somebody new,
you give to them what you gave to me
how can you say you were true?
You just dont know what love is
and how it breaks your heart,
when the one you love has left you
and you feel like you're miles apart.
But although I miss you
day by day
and my feelings for you are still true,
the words that are still locked in my mind
is my darling, I still love you.
A Partner's Love
To look for your partner's soul
look through their eyes.
To look for their love
look towards their heart.
To look for their warmth
look for their caring nature.
to look for their presence
look to seek their smile.
To look for their strength
is to find a shoulder to lean on.
To look for all of these
is a journey
to discover love, peace and harmony.
To find them all is heavenly bliss
