Innocence

Poem By Cheryl Adair

we should each seek to humble ourselves
and to sleep the sleep of children:

undisturbed by dreams and demons
untroubled by fear and worry
unburdened by guilt and shame

to awaken as we once did:
with eyes blinking and twinkling
still sensitive to the light
(but) with a smile on our lips

an eagerness in our heart
for the day ahead
and not just sleep weary:

relieved that we survived one more night
of dealing with our subconcious thoughts
and unspoken desires

In Honor Of Love

as we are eternally bound by love
destined to walk the road of life
as we vow to be forever true
i will hold you close to me

Dark Eyes

you come to me now and offer to share
you hold out your hand so i'll think you care
you tell me you're sorry and you just didn't know
that i was waiting and that i needed you so

The Aftermath

in the distance i can hear
the approach of the planes
bringing their fiery death
which they dropp like rain

This Heart

Somewhere past the setting sun
close to where the rivers run
Wrapped in cloaks of evergreen
never heard and never seen

Rain

when you hear the summer rain falling
falling softly on the leaves
when you think you hear a memory calling
mingled faintly on the breeze

Crystal Dreams

I had a dream of you
and your crystal blue eyes
I stepped inside your soul
and I knew you for a moment
