For a Friend

searching for your home

you look at many houses

while all the time 

your true home lies within

 

rebuild the home inside you

carry your true home

inside your own heart

 

your body houses

your heart, mind, soul and spirit

be a sanctuary

for love

Searching for the Light

having the courage to stand

in the cold and the wind

creates great beauty

 

trying and trying

to create meaning in life

a worthwhile effort

 

will I be able

to face the uncertainty,

the courage to let it be?

 

searching for the light

getting simpler and simpler

I find my true self

Love Haiku

 I hear you breathing

soft and still or loud and strong

you live next to me

 

accept what you can

redemption is far away

love is here tonight

 

tonight is the time

to hope for tomorrow’s light

to clear heaven’s path

 

raining harder now

washing away our past sins

fresh will be the air

 

let go of today

let us wait for tomorrow

to heal our sorrow

 

I write while you dream

of rainbows in the dark sky

that shine light on love
