Voices

Poem By rita francis

There I looked out and you saw me
a waif in search of a home
you gathered me up in your arms
and carried me to safety
the voices of reason lament, but the voices of the soul rejoice.

There I looked out and you saw me
a cavalier in search of a citadel
you turned me toward my true north
and let the wind blow away my course
the voices I heard were torment, the voices of danger abound.

There I looked out and you saw me
a patron in search of a course
You garnered energy from space
and led me to believe in time
the voices of lonliness left suddenly, the voices of truth abound now.

There I looked out and you saw me
a drifter in search of a rock
you tred softly amidst the waves
and led me to believe in your strength
the voices of reason rejoice, the voices of happiness cry out.

Simple Expressions

There are moments and places been
where simple expressions cannot erase
those tender lapses in life's tale
where one can rarely regale.

Today

Today has brought with it
the promise that the hurt
will fade, the dreams will
subside, and the heartache

I Dream

I dream of you
yet I know that you are gone
that your spirit is no
longer mine to behold

You Came

and found me in the midst of despair.

You came

Somewhere, Someplace, Planet Earth

From the red mountains, blue skies, and benthic valley's below
I searched for what to plan, nurture, and sow
