    My pen grows quiet as my heart
    loses its moment of joy for one
    who fill the meadow with seeds
    of happiness, peace and love;

    My mind moves slower these days
    as the night arrives earlier and the
    fall instills the coming of change
    for one who desires love in hollow;

    My hopes of commitment are faded
    as the days of silence grow by leaps
    and bounds and I wonder if I will ever
    find true love within broken promises;

    My eyes fill with tears not of pain but
    of disappointment that my expectations
    would once again come to pass, at last
    another fails to fulfill words they speak;

    They say the pen is mightier than the sword
    for the words of truth can cut deeper than
    molded steel and the sad truth is that the
    wounds or words run deep and never heal;

    What should I follow? The words spoken or
    the unspoken words acted out when they
    attempt to offer their heart only to take it
    back at the first hint of a better, taller life;

    Today I return to the meadow to rest and
    allow my heart to mend from the pain
    of disappointments covered by the veil
    of unreasoned closing of love’s door.

    oooooooooH MR.D

    I see the unshed tears that you hid
    cause you think you will never love or
    wed.
    I see the spots on your shirt where your
    heart bled, from words with good intentions
    that should have never been said.

    I have been labeled disabled a breathing
    machine times two.
    Somedays are really bright, somedays are
    really blue.
    But, you are so, so beautiful inside your
    wondrous soul!

    God, is the giver of every perfect gift.
    And to you he will minister and your
    spirits he will lift.
    Paul too had his afflictions and was
    always want to ask why?
    But, this I know about the Saviour
    he will love you til you die.

    I am so sorry someone has hurt you
    So sad that what you have seems like
    not enough
    It can be rough!
    It will make ya heart tough!
    But , oh sweet child of God's mercy, don't
    you see the reality!

    You are a mountain to high!
    A river to deep!
    A meadow so beautiful!
    And a song so sweet!
    Shallow hearts cannot compete.


    *"What God has for...you! is 4 u!"


    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    return to the meadow, my brutha

    regain your strength...that you might be ready to dance when the light tap tap tap on the shoulder of the bolder ones cry out for the touch that only you can offer. YES, return to the meadow. REST. be at peace with life...for, one day, life will come for you...and you will know that words are mightier than the sword. and though the unspoken word can speak...spoken words sing volumes.

    i await your return.

    Know that I am here embracing your sorrow in the deep meadow
