Best Poem of Leonard Dabydeen


She creeps around my room
lulling any sound whispering
in the creak of my chair
or the opening of a cabinet
watching and listening
like a hawk perched for flight
then she comes into my mind
with a hug and a kiss
loving me for who I am
and who I want to be
or who I have become
then she tickles me
in the vulnerability of my soul
stirring me into life
and I begin to let my keyboard play
like a piano of my dreams
as I play a song for her to sleep
while I sift through my world
like a spider’s web
trapped in the loneliness
of bountiful joy...

Read the full of Loneliness

In God We Trust

If so much in faith in God we trust
our love to share forever we must
lift our spirits in outreach so high
sifting away the rubbles to see the sky
every darkness in time will vanish
every light will sparkle without tarnish.

If with bruised hands our pain we must endure
our hope in time will keep us secure
