Good Day, Nay and Yay

Got out of bed,
scratched my head.
What will I write today?
.
The day is new,
my mind’s askew.
No thoughts of what to say.
.
Poured my coffee in a cup,
needing a little pick-me-up.
Why must the day be gray?
.
The clock ticks fast,
gone is the past.
Still dues I pay.
.
For tonight I wait,
I’ve a welcome date.
She helps me see the way.
.
The night will end,
a note I’ll send.
That love’s here to stay.

One of Those (many) Days

Ever have a day when nothing goes right?
You get up late from a sleepless night.
The gray surrounds with no refrain.
The day’s chilly with dreary rain.
.
Inhale some eggs with runny yolks.
Now running behind but out of smokes,
detoured to the store to buy some more.
Rush to work, tip toe through the door.
.
But the boss is there, bad news had.
A report’s disappeared, computer’s bad.
The day runs long, no time for lunch.
Tomorrow’s the same, I’ve a hunch.
.
Then finally home but all alone.
Heat’s off and chilled to the bone.
Boiler’s ready, thermostat’s not.
Batteries needed that I forgot.
.
Hunger’s remembered, cupboards bare.
Cereal found, no milk to spare,
so half a box will have to do.
Nights half over, I’m glad it’s through.

Texture

A goodnight text every night,

but for when you’re near.

A morning poem at first light,

to let you know I care.

.

Time between visions’ seen,

of when we did last meet.

When we greet the feeling’s serene,

and my day’s all the more sweet.

.

And time’s now soon,

to enjoy the days delight.

Till we kiss beneath the moon,

followed by a text goodnight.

Well Thought Of

.
All this thinking may take its toll.
But why stop now, I’m on a roll.
As I ponder forever tomorrows,
the feelings flow, the writing follows.
.
Though forever a long time away,
my thoughts of you are sure to stay.
I dream of our future when I’m awake.
I feel you near with each breath I take.
.
I feel your heartbeat when mine is still.
I think I love you and always will.

Past Tense

Imagine adventure, step back in time.
Halls with doors, surprises mine.
Ghostly greetings with every blink,
the past behind we’re led to think.
.
Spirits pass spirits on.
Spirit’s off spirit’s gone.
Souls see the soul-less be.
Soul’s sense, soul’s free.
.
Minds absorb, till out of time.
Tour’s done, step back in line.
Entry’s open, time to depart.
Life awaits, make the start.

To Plus To

To like and love, to lust and trust,
formula’s clear and all’s a must.
Time teaches all to grow.
Seasons season all we know.
.
Negatives dwelt, positives melt.
Negatives dealt, positives felt.
The past a lesson, learned or not.
Good’s great when bad forgot.
.
Hearts, minds and souls align.
Eyes see all is truly fine.
Ears hear all that’s dear.
Arms ready for hugs to share.
.
Smiles glow and worries fade.
Kisses await and warmth made.
Bells ring to end and wake.
Lesson done when a pair we make.

Buzzed

Out for more coffee for our first meet,
I was typically late, she saved a seat.
I had a bit of the jitters when we did greet.
Her smile sent tingles from my head to feet.
We nibbled on goodies, but she’s the treat.
My cup of tea found and oh so sweet.
