Follow Your Heart


The heart will always
lead to your chosen path, 
but first, first- you must 
be willing... to read the map
For there are many twists 
and turns along the way,
sometimes, just sometimes,
it may seem- 
The heart led astray, away from
our dreams, but stay the course, 
know what's true, follow your
heart, for it leads to you...

Only a Dream

You...
My sweet reverie
were, but a fleeting
dream in which
To pass the time,
To ease my sorrow
To free my mind
In the beginning,
I imagined your
face, your voice,
your knowing touch
Always, I smiled
at the thoughts of you
Soon, my soul
renewed in love
No longer wished
upon the stars above
For dream and reality
seemed never to part
As feelings of joy
embraced the heart
Alas, your truth
came to be, a 
beautiful awakening
I must see
And, yet, still
I sleep knowing
true...
I cannot escape-
the wonder of you
So, in my reverie
I will abide, until
the day, you're
by my side...

Once I was lost (then I was found)





I was seeking
to be found...
No one was searching
Then you came around



Why did you do that?
Awaken my soul
Why did you do that? 
To only let go...



I was content to 
simply just be...
Then you came around
And set my heart free



Filling my world in hope
with your words
At last, someone got me
I was finally heard



Why did you do that?
Make me believe
Were you seeking too?
Were you searching
for me?



Perhaps, all a moment
A dream never true
Maybe real is the dream
As we now bid adieu



For finally I see
your truth at last
You awakened my soul
To find my path



Once I was lost
I prayed to be found
Once I was seeking
Then you came around


 Thank you...

Poetry


Lost in the shadow of forgotten memories
Found in the light of self- discovery
Journey to the depths of your soul
For only there, will your truth
be shown...

Unrequited Love

A most foolish path
I chose to pursue
As it leads, alas
To nowhere, but you
So in snippet and rhyme
I reach out in word
Hoping you read
I write to be heard
Still, you ignore 
The words so dear
For their meaning 
Resounds...
All too clear

The Story

A dream once imagined,
becomes the story once
foretold...
So beautiful in its essence
So true in its form, left
without end, to begin
once more

Poetry



Floating on a 
summer wind
Lost in dream, 
once again
For there, 
upon the gentle breeze
She finds a place,
 where she is free
To spread her wings 
and take flight
Beyond the stars,  
beyond the night...
