APRIL 2 -SECRET

The secret

How many seconds, minutes, hours

Turned into days, weeks, months, years

Holding us together in our secret life.

I have been your best friend

The lover you needed

The mother you wanted

The wife that she was not.

I was hidden away

As I took care of so many things

She could no longer do,

Or wanted to do.

As you complained I listened

To your woos, as only a lover could

To your raves, as only a best friend could

To your heart, as only a mother could

I opened my heart and life

For us to share and live

It was so many years

I was the other, “the secret”.

When life did give you freedom

And by the Grace of God

He took her home

I was there, your secret to console you

I have only been allotted 7 years

For “Us” to shine and thrive

In the beautiful Arizona sun

Before God stole my secret.

Prompt 46 If I Knew Then, What I Know Now

Well, young lady

If I knew then, what I know now

You need to know that there is an end
Of a rainbow that you can listen to

There are no silver linings in the clouds
Only the golden sunset to drink in now

The journey is un-mistakenly eventful
Cherish all the burses, and pick the scabs clean

Cry the thousand tears of joy for being alive
And wear each scare as testament of your survival

Never doubt the paths you have chosen
You are where you are suppose to be

Have the guts to always be true to yourself
By not allowing others to judge your work harshly

The words of others that can be trusted
Are a special breed, you will know whom

With every unsure step or stumble
You will make strides with the lessons it will teach

Write the words that blossom from your heart
You will always have beautiful bouquets that surround you.

Take My Hand Take My Hand

Echoes of a long since forgotten time
Begs to become a rhyme.
Take my hand; I’ll escort you through

To explore the world
Which I once knew.


Take my hand; I’ll glide with you
To places, and among their people who,
Have cluttered my mind’s heart.


Take my hand, I’ll see through your eyes
The experiences and maybe some lies,
From where I’ve said many Good-byes!


Take my hand, let us embark,
Through captured moments,
Of my heart



As hand in hand
We Start!
