Following the Sunrise

AZ photo Sunrise poem 2013  Final

This is an extension of my poem from 5/21/13
http://lscotthoughts.com/2013/05/21/sunrise.
I loved this photo from my wonderful and long time friend, Sabrina,
and thought it would be perfect for part of the poem.
So let’s end the week with a little romance
and a beautiful sunrise. ♥

Paradise

Tropical sunrise

I must be dreaming when I say
good-night to the moon
I’m wrapped in your arms
our loving cocoon
then each morning when I wake
I fall into your eyes
swimming in your oceans
with the heat of our own sunrise
and when you pull me in deeper
with your slow moving kiss
we travel to a new world
in this feeling of bliss

Kindness

Holding Daisies

Does your heart try
to please every soul
turn frowns upside down
dry tears and console

Do your eyes see the good
in everything around
in every person you pass
on the streets in your town

If the answer is yes
then you’re quite the friend
you have an abundance of love
to share again and again

Yet, you’re also at risk
to having your heart broken
because not all will agree
with your words spoken

So you do your best
for the common good
and hope all your loving actions
are truly understood

Sunrise

Hand-in-hand

I said, “I do”
You said, “I will”
after all these years
here we are still

following the sunrise
watching where it leads
always hand in hand
there’s nothing more we need

Missing Piece

Though glowing rays
warm my window panes
I function in a daze
my nights remain cloudy
I dream only in grays
and when I reach for your hand
feeling only the sheets
my heart shatters once again
adding another piece

 to the pile in my mind
of brokenness from the past
promises flowing
down the river
crashing with a splash
I miss your eyes
how they touched
deep into my soul
and how your loving words
made my heart whole

 but I’ll find worthiness
on a dusty shelf
and lying beside it
will be the strength I seek
for even without your love
I won’t remain weak
