The Longing

How I long for you
in the quiet of night

For you strong arms to
hold me ever so tight

In my longing I do
ache for just the sight

Of you coming home to
me with the morning light

And the aching overwhelms me
as the time goes by

Your face to really see
not just in mind’s eye

All I want to be
what is my heart’s cry

Is to love you endlessly
until the day I die!

Poetry Picnic Week 9 : Longing, Loss, Loosing and Failure

Silence Me

You can never
silence me forever

I will speak out
not whisper but shout

The injustice of all
the innocent that fall

Upon whom you prey
all through every day

For children they are
not adults by far

Just little girls who
deserve better than you

Although you beat me
you’ll never defeat me

As their plight I
to high heaven cry

Letting the world know
their charity to show

The injusice of it all
is my heart’s call

I want everyone to see
this is a tragedy!
