I wake

without having slept

the line

between life and dream


was and never-was

both real

Quiet darkness

haven and nightmare

Voices, unheard in bright daylight

whisper love

I sleep

without waking

the line

between dream and life



The words must be said

because life is fleeting

and we do not know

the time of our ending

A chance to voice

heart’s desire

to freely give

what each holds dear

We can never know

the future

we have only eternal now


the time to say

I love you

I love you now



We walk alone

path unknown

lives touching

in darkness

and endless solitude

brief moments

of connection

soon gone

Light blooms

hope lives

for a moment

in friendship

and love

We walk on


on paths unknown

Faded Ink

A story

written in fading ink


as years advance

Leaving behind

a broken link

Lives set adrift

Journeying alone

unable to cross

the gaping rift

and see 

what lies beyond

Our stories join

and separate


as time moves on

The Road

Weary footsteps echo

on a long lonely road

the journey not yet over

Hesitant, cautious

in the dimming light

Shadowy reminders

of people and places

long distant in the past

Memory beckons 

footsteps slow

as longing for comfort

and warmth grow

A distant light gleams

promising safe harbour

and the footsteps

continue on


Shadow self
the pieces of me
I tried to discard
or hide
There are tears
deep inside
that no one
ever sees
Fragmented, broken
held together
by hope
and love
that never gives up


I wish
for impossible things
the joy of your smile
the touch of your hand
the twinkle in your eye
I wish
for impossible things
a minute more
an hour longer
a day to savour
a year to just be with you
I wish
things didn’t change
but they did
and now the world
is forever


I was angry with you
for leaving
angry that we didn’t
have more time
Angry at God
for taking you
before I was ready
I could never be ready
I was angry at myself
for letting you go
angry for wanting
to keep you
though I knew it was your time
I want to let go of anger
Leave sorrow behind
but I’m not sure
I know how


I am part of everything
and everyone
I love
Part of everyone
there is
and of everything
that ever will be
Your love lives
in me
and my love lives
in you
Hearts entwined
souls joined
through the ages
We’ve lived
and laughed
and loved
separate and together
lost and found
Parts of a whole
Waiting for all the pieces
To come together
