"A New Beginning"


 

Where Do We Go Wrong?

What a precious GEM;

I came across,

Brought into my life

So unexpectedly, so unselfishly  

Assisting me though my misery.


A heart of gold, not a harsh word to scold

Open arms to hold; helping me to cope,

Letting me know, I need to be brave

I needed to be able to show you,

That I can survive

All on my own


It'll be hard, knowing that I had to let you go

It would have been so much easier

"Holding on" to you, just for me

When you really needed to be

"Set-free"


Someone let her slip

Through their grip,

Tightly clutched,

To no avail

An

"Hour glass"

Suddenly flipped,

Turned upside down,

The sand slowly trickling forth!

Until you realize there is nothing left

All the sand ... gone

It was only a matter of time


So often not appreciating what we have

Until it's too late, then we wonder why,

Where did we go wrong?


 

Coming Home

Sun beating down
on the african plain
The eagle souring up high,
listen carefully you'll hear the cry,
underneath the african sky
Feel the earth rumble to the drum beat
Feel the earth tremble underneath my feet.

Look at the sky,
dust twirling up high
high up, in the sky

The cry of the fish eagle
floating on high
As he circles the sky,
brings a tear to my eye
Under the african sky,
the eagle crying on high
clouds drifting by
while I cry.

I'm home again, home again,
Home in Africa



The Trap

The Lady Fox
Cunningly
Stalking the victim
Of her desire
Slyly
Intent on lighting his
Fire
Playfully luring him
Into her trap

Carefully
Making sure he doesn't
Get a gap
He lies down to take
A nap
Unaware
That it's a trap

The Cunning Lady Fox
Licks her lips
As she sits
A sly twinkle
In her eye
Yes! It's a trap



 

Alone & Forlorn

The sad Lady Fox

Sits alone and forlorn

Lowering her head!

Her small body


Feeling like lead!

Softly whining, pining

Contemplating

Her fate!

Now that

She no longer

Has a soul mate!
