Honesty

Solemn secrets long suppressed
Mirrored windows now undressed
Visions loved and firm caressed
Die in silence at the crest
Truth be known then for it’s best
No hidden mask or role then pressed
To stand the light and build a nest
Dare the strong bare pass the test

Poem For the Resurrected Man

When I was a child
I had a face that smiled and lighted each bright new day
But the older I grew
The more I knew this face would be gone someday
And now in an ageless boundless tomb
This face that smiled and lighted each day
Has withered and turned to clay
And here I stand, a new man

Somewhere

There
Where no man’s hand has touched
There
No tender heart is crushed
There
Where rivers feed the tree
Where fools are welcomed as they be
There
Where love was first begotten
Where time was long forgotten
There I am somewhere

There
The dew’s my only chalice
Where I rest in sunshine palace
There
The dove does heal the heart
Where no man can ever chart
There
Where stars are like the sand
Where only GOD can understand
There I am somewhere

There
I long to take my rest
Where
No tears are masked by jest
There
Where patience waited long
Where in the night I sing my song
Somewhere
Now I know it
There
Is a place I see
Where fools are loved with open arms
and welcomed as they be
There I am somewhere
