    Writing line by line
    Can i capture the truth in rhyme
    You tell me okay its fine
    Whats fine my writings or the rhymes
    Have you read enough this time
    Rhyme line rhyme
    Am i wasting my time
    Do i even comprehend
    The thoughts the static static
    Inside my head
    I send a piece to a friend
    Or are they scared to offend
    I need to know if its rubbish
    Putting it out there to be published
    Rhyme line verse
    Do you speak the truth or were you coerced
    So im taking you at your word
    You have listened you heard
    Line by line
    Rhyme by rhyme
    Can i be convicted of poetry crimes
    For writing dribble
    About nothing as long as it rhymes
    Well thank you my friend

    Okay time to go

    Reunion or Requittal
    I desire to relay you one thought,  
    Do you not know its outcome? 
    If I were to gaze at the darkness illumined by the winter moon
    Beneath the roots of love
    If I reacheth towards the furies its engulfing blackness shall turn me to dust
    Or the necklace of silver that lay over me rust
    The force of the elements delivers me to thee
    As though that all that exists,  
    Humanity the stars of light and of our ancestors stories that enfold
    To us all that is useful yet cannot feel me like your gold
    It tis unto you that my true body glows in the light of you to you I unfold
    Well if time and time your universe turns from mine do not Flemish the thought that I should not burry you before my grave
    If your mind traverses the thought of me returning hardly then do not think that mine own shall stop praying for your return.
    And the more your necklace rots the more my heart shall plot
    To let go of the tree of you and me that stretched out its branches to teach us of sublimity
    Yet if it be true that your thoughts await mine at the shore of existence perhaps the shore right above the heavens so that when I look up at them I shall have something to wrought out my intentions for my love for my pain for and my core for sealing 
    For if truly you await me day and night then surely shall 
    I await you day and night
    On the approach that someday you may return…….. 
    Daegonius Bonapartea

    Love And Life And Laughter

    How glorious new beginnings are
    Of love and life and laughter
    You made your wish, you caught a star
    It's happy ever after

    The love that's yours is immense
    It's only worthless things your losing
    No more sitting on the fence
    There's no better path for choosing

    The light you have beside of you
    It guides you from uncertainty
    You'll no longer be asking who
    You'll be sharing with eternity

    When the darkness falls from up above
    You'll be shining like a star so bright
    Because you've found your own true love
    You'll shine on through the night

    Gods Will

    Gods Will
    Is My command

    Gods Will
    Is My Holy Land

    Gods Will
    Is the will for Me

    Gods Will
    Is an accepting sea

    Gods Will
    Will see me through

    Gods Will
    Will guide you too

    All you have to do is open your eyes
    Then He'll help You realize

    - Pip

    The night was slow in passing
    with the stars and moon above
    when I heard the steady flapping
    of the snow white peaceful dove
    He had a grace about him
    that God had only seen
    He knew where he was going
    and he knew where he had been
    He flew off in the distance
    and I heard an eerie cry
    He flew off in the distance
    and I could only wonder why

    All The Changes (written for my 19 year old daughter after her breakup)

    Life as you know it is not over.
    It is simply a brand new beginning.

    You took the plunge straight into love.
    This time its an unhappy ending.

    Two lives with one path gets well travelled.
    Sometimes there is much wear and tear.

    That is when threads that once bound you.
    Unravel till there is only one left.

    Sometimes the answer is easy.
    You just go your seperate ways.

    You get used to the new solidarity.
    Youl find new things to fill up your days.

    You will always have memories of a union.
    One that was very unique.

    Life doesn't come with a handbook.
    So don't plan you datebook in ink.

    Everything changes, the world is a mess.
    You are certain to make a mistake.

    It is how you handle them that makes you grow.
    And it fixes the messes you'll make.

    My little leo, my lioness.
    Open your mouth up and roar.

    It sounds silly but it makes you feel good.
    You may catch yourself doing it more.

    You are beautiful inside and out
    My sunshine you make me smile

    Laughter and joy are contagious.
    So bask in them both for a while.

    Never forget that we love you.
    You know we will always care.

    If you need you Mommy and Daddy.
    Both of us will be right there.

    Carolyn Breeze

    The Advice

    Being a Mother is the hardest jod I've had to do.
    Parenting is tough at times the benefits are few.

    I am so proud of my children, a direct reflection of me.
    Even we we butt our heads eventually they see.

    Children are not easy. Instructions aren't included.
    I find that i get much advice, but much of it's diluted.

    Doctors tell you one thing. Parents tell you others.

    No one tells you what to do when sisters fight with brothers.

    I am a parent of 18 years with a 13 year old as well.
    As far as giving out advice there's not much I could tell.

    When my children were babies as a parent I was too.
    As they grew into adolesence as a parent I grew too.

    I love my children dearly and they would tell you that I'm strict.
    They still come to mommy when they need a problem fixed.

    We have all shed many tears, some yelling, and some laughter.
    First the yelling, then the tears, the laughter follows after.

    There is no perfect parent, so I want all mothers to know.
    If you are a mother you'll learn what you need to know.

    Parenting is practice, you'll find you practice it so much.
    When they need their mommy, there's nothing like a mother's touch.

    I wrote this when we unfortunately suffered a miscarriage a couple of years ago: -

    To our tiny little angel,
    that we never got to meet,
    hold in our loving arms,
    count the toes upon your feet,
    i want you to know,
    as you watch from above,
    from the moment we knew off you,
    you had all off our love,
    your mummy and your daddy,
    your sister Imogen Grace,
    in our hearts and our family,
    you already had your place,
    we've had to say goodbye,
    without ever saying hello,
    to a special boy or girl,
    that we never got to know,
    you will always have our love with you,
    on whichever cloud you be,
    and you'll never be far from the thoughts,
    off us your family x
