Boys can make you happy.

Boys can make you sad.

Boys are always up to something

And they can make you mad.

Boys will always do

Exactly what they want to.

And seldom, very seldom

Do you find a boy who’s true.

I hope one day I find one.

Though I may hope in vain.

But somewhere in this world,

There has to be a boy

Who’s not totally insane.

A silent silken sky lies just before my eyes.

A dark delicate reminder of how we used to be.

A vision of mighty mystery a lovely nocturnal hue.

A dismal sense of misery a frightful wish for you.

He’s a mystical creature

With his silver horn

He moves with a grace all his own.

Faster than lightening he moves

Upon his silver hooves

He shines in the night

In the glorious moonlight

In my dreams my magical dreams

I ride on his back

As strange as it seems

I ride fast and free

The creature and me

The last of the Unicorns

Born to be free!

Listed items on a page
waiting for that final stage

Spice Island Vanilla
Multigrain Cheerios

Pick me up and bring me home.

Garlic, Basil, Onion...

Cross me off and make me real.

apples, grapes, bananas

This week's bargain
Quite a steal.

Soap, lotion, detergent

waiting for that final stage to
Fill your needs, wants and desires
Replace the empty and expired.

The Cliche

The cliche is I was half
But now I'm whole.
I don't believe that's right.

You touch my soul
And light up my nights.
You help me reach my goals;
fill my days with delights.

You make me believe
All things are possible
And I do the same for you.

I don't need you
but I want you
as a part of my life.

You don't have to be  my husband
I don't have to be your wife.

The cliche is you complete me
But I don't believe that's right.
You enhance me is a better way
to keep a relationship in sight.

You make Me more me.
You make me happy.

You make me believe
All things are possible
And I do the same for you.

I don't need you
but I want you
as a part of my life.

You don't have to be  my husband
I don't have to be your wife.

The cliche is
for movies, for poetry, for books.
In this reality , for me it doesn't work.

You don't have to be  my husband
I don't have to be your wife.

I don't need you
but I want you
as a part of my life.

One Day You'll Understand

One day you'll understand
You roll your eyes and shake your head
believing you know more instead.

One day you'll understand
Words said to you  in your youth.

One day you'll understand
How accurate this sentence.
How it was filled with truth.

One day you'll understand
You hear the echoes of that phrase
As you work more than 9-5 each day.

One day you'll understand
Reflection in the mirror reminds you
of where you originally heard this statement.

One day you'll understand
Songs on the radio remind you
of how not to be so complacent.

One day you'll understand
A sentence, said casually
predicting everyone's destiny.

One day you'll understand.
You hear it as it rolls off your tongue
Into the ears of someone young.

Writer's Collapse

I forgot the thought in my head
while washing dishes.
It fulfilled the void of
being annoyed with someone's wishes.

My hopes and desires
won't soon retire
to remember the initial plot.
The thought so good
it understood the feelings that were wrought.

But sadly I search
with no recollection
of the original verse.
A momentary lapse
of writer's collapse
A temporary creative curse.

Valentine's Haiku

More valuable
than a dozen red roses
The words, "I Love You".

Cupid's arrow flies
You appear before my eyes
My heart's filled with Love.

Emotions combined
Devotion is yours and mine
Happy Valentine's!

World of wonder
World of delight
This strange identity
Just can't be right

Wishing upon a star
Wondering where you are
Hope it's not very far
Wishing upon a star

Beautiful dreamer
Beautiful dream
wake up to reality
it's not all it seems

Candy Coma

Heart-shaped boxes
sugar filled treats
All these delicious
sweets to eat.

Chocolates for dinner
and breakfast too
plenty of choices
so what could I do

Cookies and Candies
my taste buds you're pleasin'
February is sweet
for so many reasons.

Happy Valentine's Day

A day of Hearts and Roses
Romantic dinners and red wine
A day of guilt and misery for
many people all the time.

Singles feel as if their lives are somehow less than
 if they aren't a part of the love fest.
Couples feel they must  show their love in a grand fashion.
Or somehow their love is just not the best.

Gifts are purchased
Expectations run high
People forget
some start to cry

Why do we force ourselves to
show what we feel?
When what we should do
is show it for real.

Love is a beautiful gift
found in many ways
 in all our lives.

To find someone to love
is indeed for which
we all strive.

Dinners, gifts, relationships
Friends, lovers, family
Valentines they all can be
Don't get stuck in

A simple "I Love You"
 is more precious and expensive
than any dozen of roses.

After all, Love is the greatest gift of all.

A Love Filled Arrow

Cupid that mischievous fellow
Will get you with his bow and arrow
He’ll hit you no matter who you are
You can try to run but you won’t get far.

Cause Cupid that mischievous little fellow
With his little bow and arrow
Has the perfect aim.
He loves to capture people’s hearts
For his match-making games.

He’ll sneak behind you very softly
Then BANG! he’s hit you
Now you’re caught.
Your heart starts going flippety-flop.

So if you’re sitting sad and lonely
You had better watch it.
Cause you might just get hit by a little fellow
Cupid will get you with his bow and arrow.

Celebrate another year

It's my favorite day in February
The best day of the year
A wonderful day
so special to me
I'm so excited it's here.

It's my favorite day in February
A day to celebrate life
All smiles and cheers
No time for strife or fears
It's all about a good time tonight

It's my favorite day in February
Friends, Family and Food
Love and laughter no disaster
No time to sit and brood
It's all about the festive mood

It's my favorite day in February
I celebrate another year!

Last Minute

Last minute
Do I begin it?
Last minute
What do I say?
Last minute
Is it worth it?
Last minute
No more delay.

Last minute
So why Bother?
Last minute
Who will care?
Last minute
Will you notice?
Last minute
I wouldn't dare.

Last minute
Time's a wasting.
Last minute
What do I say?
Last minute
No more procrastinating.
Last minute
No more delay.

Charles Drew

To prolong the life of mankind
Is what Doctors and Nurses have in mind.

Working on his invention every night
One doctor separated blood cells red from white.

He wasn’t working on a cure for colds or asthma
But something new and special called Blood Plasma.

This new invention helped save the soldiers of World War Two

And if we’re in an accident
This doctor’s hard work might help save us too

Fast February Features

It's February
Greatest, shortest month of all.
Happy Birthday Fun!

Horses and Serpents
Talkative intelligence
Chaotic events

Weathermen beware
A four-legged forecaster
Says winter is here.

Dragon fire breathes
Vigorous vitality
Around and through me.

Groundhog Day

Nature's four-legged forecaster
A furry weather predicting creature
is Punxutawney Phil.

Also a natural actor
When he starred in a full-length feature
Sharing credits with  Andie and Bill. 

Punxutawney Phil saw his shadow today. 
Winter it is, but who trusts a groundhog anyway ?
Anyone knows that shadow or not, 
6 more weeks of winter is what we've got.

Shortest Month of the Year

It's the first day of
The shortest month of year.
That's right February is here.

A month filled with history of
African American Society.
And fortunately not only that
but I get to wear a birthday hat.

Celebrate love on Valentines day.
Learn about great men on President's day
It's even Washington and Lincoln's birthday.
And let's not forget Groundhog's day!

The shortest month of year

2012 has an extra day I hear.
That's right a Leap Year February is here.
