Keep You There



I ran.

I ran to the field and

Lay amongst the flowers today.

I stayed in their company for hours.

Days go by.  

I let the sun burn my heart.

I do not know why but it is true.

My essence did soar.

I dreamt a dream of you and I and it began to rain.

The raindrops did not touch our skin


Submerged in internal flames,


Dreaming the same dream beside me.
What is this fire you have brought to me?


You hummed and strummed,

Said nothing but we knew.

We never touched but we knew.

Me wishing to remain in sweet slumber and forever have you there.

I Say to Myself


You do not have to work so hard for love.

To beg, to plead.

(I say to myself)

To apologize for things you have not done just to

Keep the peace.

To prove your worthiness.

(Once upon a time I too did these things)

It took a long hard fall for me to learn

(I learn more everyday)

I cannot measure how much I love myself by

How much anyone else loves me.

(I remind myself)

I am worthy of my own unconditional love.

Journey On



I cherish a sunburnt country for the red dirt did

Cradle and heal my spirit.

I have felt the enduring passion of  my English garden

And I forever keep the

Mountains of the far north in my soul.

I have felt the caress of oceans from east to west in my heart.

The southern sun has kissed my skin with hope.

They have all given what I need in moments,

In those times when I did not know what I was in search of.

I love them all and owe them everything;

I am owned by none.

I rise each day and journey on in trust.
