“Take Me Back”
completed on 8.26.17

[chorus]
pictures and memories
sunshine and treachery
flashbacks to the years
when i could hold you

the flicker of the sun’s rays
soft crash of ocean waves
fearless and careless
all ’cause you were near

the flicker of a heartbeat
the fear of the obscure
the rush of my first kiss
sheer bliss and the abyss

the flicker of life’s blindfold
the wear and tear of growing old
the strain of every day
suppressed ’cause you stay

the flicker of my life
the need to protect my wife
when i hold you close
the only time my heart’s exposed

everything i do
everything i aspire to be
is only ’cause i had you

“if i had you”

“If I Had You”
written on 12.10.13

it’s a lonely night
i feel the emptiness in my mind
a frigid night reminiscing of things that never aligned
an icy view of paths maligned

i see the could-have-beens
the worst headache of past regrets
i question the routes i took
i stop on your name in my address book

your smile flashes before my eyes
and lights up the darkest skies
i see all you have to offer
and how my life you’d alter

poetry sewing me to your soul
tying us together to make me whole
everything you are begs the best in me
your love making me feel so free

and we’ll grow old and grey
and that’s fine by me
’cause everything i see in you
is what helped me push through
life is so beautiful because of you…
