This Is All I Have To Say
I'm home alone thinking to my self about life,
I do not know why stars fill the night sky,
or how rainbows gain their color.
I can see God has a good sense of humor
Love is something I always wanted to know
Why we love and let go of it,
Others say they
Or lonely and they would doing anything to
have love in their life, That has a way that
makes tears come to my eyes,
I cannot explain why I started miss you,
It's cold out side, and my mind starts to go
back in time, When you were in my life and
I could say you were mine at that time,
Oh how it put a smile on my face for the moment,
But with time I realized we never really say anything at all.
We lost that ''Spark'' in eachother's eyes,
I have never been to Paris or Rome
or cities that seem to matter to those that claim to know.
I have never swam in an ocean other than my own.
sometimes I think I see your face in my dreams looking
back at me wanting to say you are sorry for the pain you gave,
or at a bookstore in an empty poetry section.
I start wanting to write about you how my heart is lonely with
out you but life is not fare at times,
Not to a lonely hearts as mine,
sometimes the silence of morning brings back memories
you should have been in.
sometimes I stand at the edge of the ''Salton Sea'' and watch birds lift in flight.
Just like my ''Father'' when he died!
I do not know trigonometry, or organic chemistry.
I cannot fly an airplane or dance a'' tango'', or remember ''Shakespeare’s'' sonnets.
But I do love the story of'' Romeo and Juleit'',
I am really just A lonely ''Poet'' writing a ''Poem'' of time, when that one comes
to mind, I start to make a rhyme of my blues of you,
I cannot explain my humor, except it hides all my pain.
But with time I will write a 'poem' with your name on it, But for now I must
move on and call this It and go home to see brighter days
that all I have To say.
