Poem: Babe

Loves to keep me on my toes
What she's thinking no one knows
Gives me smiles that make my heart melt
Her crying does to me stuff I've never felt
Holds my finger tight in her little hands
I try to teach her to turn, but she's ready to stand
Grabs my hair in her little fists
Hers is the sweetest face I've ever kissed
Boy! Has she got that pout down
When it comes to fake tears, she'll laugh every 'ol croc out of town

These sleepless nights, those painful weeks
Those achy days of changing messy leaks
Wish they were fewer? Yes of course I do!
But one more thing I'd say too..
My unpredictable babe, my treasure, my little gift
You're the only reason for life and everything in it

Poem: Forgotten

Lost my edge?
Lost my nerve?
Lost the will
Or just my verve?

Had a goal
Stayed the path
Then explain
This sorry start

Not a start
A fork in the road
Leading away
From my other half

Never been this forgotten
This faded away
This insignificant
Didn't think I'd see this day

The half that is new
Is hard-won too
But should it compel me
To let the other half go?

Questions there always are
And always will be
But I used to have answers
There was an oracle in me

Who am I?
Where do I go?
Once this sabbatical is done
What will I know?

O help! despair
There's no place for you
I may be forgotten
But I'm needed too

Give me strength
And sweet hope to spare
I'll know where I am
When I get there

Poem: My Sweet Valentine

Go where you will
Fly, fly away
I will borrow wings
To fly with you

Be who you will
Find, find yourself
I will be you for a day
To watch you grow

Feel what you will
Share, share your dreams
I will be a sponge
To live the world through your senses

Do your worst
Show, show the naysayers
I will be strong
To be your shield against their blows

Fall all you will
Glide, glide on a sweet breeze
I will be a giant pillow
To catch you

Be more than I'll ever be
Be less than I ever was
Live for you
Love for you
Sing your own songs
Walk your own path

You are what I dreamed I'd be one day
Mine is an endless selfish love
And it will never fail you
My little one
