"Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together."
- John 4:35 -

til someday when love finds it's home in my heart, I shall remain this hollow person I feel I am

2003

tonight I shall cry myself to sleep
for the pain, and the loneliness run deep

a small step a giant leap
no arms to hold or hand to keep

2002

again nothing
again a lie?

again silence
again no value?

again

Get up, stand up Stand up for your rights Get up, stand up Never give up the fight.

1999

Sitting in the dark as I often do, pondering my thoughts of you, Questions a plenty fill my mind, wondering if you are thinking in kind. Words slip past my lips, silent whispers, no one hears, silenced by the darkness and no ones ears. Does thou think the same thoughts? and who of they are they of? Silence can betray, feelings felt, fear can hold at bay never revealing, Such a mixture of conflict, expression in written form, with a wish to be seen, understood, unknown.

1998

Sometimes when I think of you
To many times I see your dear face
Every day I dream of us
Very seldom do you leave my thoughts
Even when I'm asleep you are there
Never far from my mind

Why I think and feel so much
I do not know but I do
Love is such a mystery
Life seems unfair
I want to be there
A dream I hope to share
Making my body sing, with just simple things

My love for you is strong
Only death shall keep us apart
Roads we travel are just the start
Gaining ground with every beat of my heart
And again I'm reminded
Not yet

Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
