Knowing

Somewhere right now

In another realm and time

I’m breathing your scent

Grasping your hand tightly

And Lord I pray

That I embrace that moment

Appreciate it fully

Knowing

What I know now

That this memory of you

Haunts my heart with sadness

Knowing

It can never be again

Taxi Cab

Taxi Cab

I could swear

That I saw you

In the reflection of shimmering lights

Out the window of my taxi cab

We passed over

Memories of us

Like a hitchhiker off the side of the road

The meter keeps flickering

Binary Morse code

I deciphered all its meaning

A bandage for my poor hearts bleeding

New York City rain

Seeping through passenger doors

Like a vision of your body

Each time I close my eyes

I plead, don’t drive me home

Let me stay in this dream

Where your hand doesn’t let go of mine

Until my destination arrives

Like the thief in the Bible

Stealing you away from me

I’ll still leave a tip

For this momentary flashback

Is worth every penny

I swore I saw you…

Maybe So

Maybe So

You say that the love of the father is not in me

I’ll shrug and say… it maybe so

That I’m taken by the world and all that’s in it

I’ll think for a moment and say… it maybe so

And that I’ve must’ve never been saved or blessed

I’ll look down and say… it maybe so

That I’m a lie, a walking contradiction

I’ll smirk and say… it maybe so

You’ll give up on me, and say I’m lost

That I don’t have a clue

That I know nothing and hold nothing

I’ll smile and say

Now you get it

Home

Where would I possibly go

If in this very moment

Your blessing abounds 

Whether in the tallest building 

Or nestled in my sheets 

Swimming in the ocean 

Or seated on the shore 

There is truly nothing 

But your love 

Beyond all the scents

And the abundance of colors 

That surround me

I kneel before your beauty 

And I am home 

Loving You

Though I may no longer feel your touch 

It’s imprint 

Is ever lasting 

The scent of your skin

Permeates my senses 

Where Nothing truly 

shall Compare 

Everything fails to reach

The zenith 

That was loving you 

Thus Having known such heights 

Suffices the longing

That is In my soul 

And the penance of forever 

Justifiably I shall serve
