Beauty

There is so much beauty in the world,
So much beauty around us,
Sometimes we get caught up,
Caught up in things that shouldn’t matter,
We don’t see the small things,
All the small things that really matter,
Should we always keep going,
Keep going on what seems to pass for beauty,
For things that should be sought after,
Instead of things that really do matter?
What has this world come to?
Where have we forgotten?
Forgotten all the truly wonderful beautiful things
That is all around us every day,
We put so much time,
So much effort,
So much wasted energy,
Although doing certain things is good for us,
We get so caught up,
Caught up in those things,
We need to remember,
We need to see,
That there is so much we seem to have forgotten,
So let us take a moment,
Let us stop our busy life,
And look a bit deeper,
Look deeper in what’s around,
Remember what has been brought to our lives,
Remember what He has given us,
Remember that beauty is found,
In not waist sizes,
But in how someone treats others,
How that person could be …

Lost Time

One of my older poems from many years ago that has always been one of my personal favorites.

Silent is the tears I hide,
The feelings deep inside
That remind me of you,
The moment of loss.

Loud is the pain in my soul
From the loss of you,
Is the rain that falls
Around me,
Is the time I remember
When you were with me.

Eternal is the love I feel
For you everyday,
The moment I first
Looked into your eyes,
The time you left me.
