My Temptress of Circumstance

I have my flaws

I somehow understand yours

I look beyond the surface

I’m in the club of empathetic entrepreneurs

Is this my curse?

Not choosing well with whom I may fall?

We’ve crossed this line before

Look at that, oh what a squall

Despite what should be my better sense

I forgive and move on

Still I want to fill my heart

Wanting you by my side in the dawn

I’m asking the questions

That makes me look at my reality

What do I posit?

What makes me an enlistee?

I understand my vulnerability

I understand my strong features

I may not make the right play

But I’m certain I won’t be on the bleachers

There is something more I see

Than you are willing to let on

This is why I wait

This is why I fawn

Part of me knows this as fact

Part of me knows this dance

What will become of this?

My temptress of circumstance

My Poetry is my X-Ray

The universe is mysterious

Connecting to messages we send and receive

Responding to what is positive

Or that to which we grieve

Somebody living in Boise

Relates to someone in San Diego

Somehow a connection through the ether

Slips out of the shadow

I know you’ve experienced loss

But in loss we can also find our way

There is a purpose in our healing

Pain is a teacher but it does not have to stay

Even 953 miles

Does not seem far away

Something I can’t really explain

So my poetry is my X-Ray

Out by the seaside

I have a surprise

I would like to share

For a few hours in the day

Outside in the fresh air

You told me once

Something you’ve never done

Not as a child

Or with your daughters and your son

I want to invite you

For you and I to take a ride

Out by the boardwalk

Out by the seaside

Wind in our hair

Tandem bicycle built for two

You’re with me

And I’m with you

It brings me joy

If I can put a smile on your face

It is your happiness

That I’d like to embrace

So come with me

And enjoy the ride

Something to remember me by

Along the ocean tide

My Reason to Forgive

I’ve contemplated my behavior

Always wanting to be on the right side of my wrongs

But this focus will also shed

Much of the error within others and where it belongs

We can only control what is in our power

We must forgive others the folly of their deceit

Exoneration is not for the sole sake of relieving guilt

But for the sake of the soul we do not want to deplete

(My reason to forgive)

The Archer and the Crab

I wasn’t looking

But then you came upon me

I didn’t expect what would happen

Somehow my heart is now full of glee

Maybe I was receptive?

Maybe I was under a spell?

But unlike anyone before

It was only you that I fell

You the Sagittarius

Shot me with Cupid’s arrow

The Archer and the Crab

What-do-ya-know?

I don’t think I’m crazy

What’s a poor boy to do?

I found love

I found it with you

I care deeply

Listen to what the heart will say

Having you in my life

I know now God has listened to me pray

I want only to make you happy

I’ll work hard to show you everyday

The passion we bring to each other

The passion that won’t fade away

I Have Never been More Certain


I write to tell of my feelings

I write to try and understand

Sometimes we need to hear ourselves

Not listening to what’s in the hinterland

I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it

The world changed in the dark gloom

I was alone but I still fought for a life

I kept my faith, I didn’t presume

Taken by surprise

You brought my life vitality

Something I did not expect

But I was attracted to your personality

I was receptive

I wanted to strive

Because of you

I wanted to thrive

I seem to think that your story

Just might be similar to mine

You didn’t know what to think of me

But somehow we connected

Over these months that we have spend time

The many wonders of the universe

We have much to figure out

I have never been more certain

With the girl from Los Reyes Michoacan De Ocampo I am devout

I am a Richer Man

I am a richer man

with every new day

you are a part of me

and this is what I say

my words are honest

my actions are even more true

I give you my heart

It is so easy for me to love you

I am blessed when you are near

I am blessed when we are together

I will earn your affection

In fair or foul weather

I seek to learn

I seek to grow

With you in my life

I love my girl from Mexico

DCG
