A Soulmate.

Poem By Shelley L Baxter

A soul mate is what I’m searching for,
A soul mate is what I seek,
A soul mate is what could be…
At the end of every street.

My soul mate should be loving,
My soul mate should be kind,
My soul mate and I'd love unconditionally…
No matter what we find.

I'd give to them my only heart,
I'd give to them my love.
I'd give to them all that they sought,
In their prayers to God above.

They would share with me their secrets,
I’d share with them my fears,
They’d hold me close and whisper words,
We would wipe each other’s tears.

It seems I find them everywhere; it seems I find their traits!
It seems I find their likelihood, but in the end they just don’t rate.
I know I need to start again, to find that special one.
I know I need to regain my strength, to seek my 'Warm balmy sun...'

A soul mate is what we're searching for…
A soul mate is what we will find!
A soul mate is close as our next breath...
If we leave unnecessary expectation behind!

My God, please take care of this teenager...

** Seasons Change.

On a lazy Sunday afternoon,
the sun shone so brightly...

********i Would Take A Day Like That...

Have you seen a weeping willow
whose leaves are still, quiet and at peace?
A palm along a lonely shore
that moves not...there's no breeze.

*** *** One Of Gods Gift...

Cold Marble slabs of unpolished,
precious stone that shapes not
in thy hands even when co-erced...
even when a vision for it is known.

*******sweet Inspiration...

Coffee and orange juice left me with a zany feeling
as the dawn rose up like a butterfly
bursting its way out of its cocoon.
The globe ascended on the horizon...and

Time flies with the wings of white
very weightless light feathers.
They surround us and cool us at times
all while flapping furiously to
