The smile you place upon my lips and kiss,

Resonates within my heart’s core, dive in,

When you ask for as kiss, you sip, such bliss.


Letting time build and love restore within,

Pain once existed, left in night of dark.

Touching your skin, which I adore, no sin.


Laughter is all I feel, nothing which is stark,

Before you, life was emptiness, depart —

Giggling, smirk, hear the cheerful larks.


Telling j0kes, yours are genius of heart,

Never failing to make you smile, I try.

Dry wit turns away soberness, take heart.


When I think of you grinning while I sigh.

Thinking, words which will turn sadness away.

With rich laughter, love’s no trial, stay awhile.


Future is distant, with gladness I pray,

As we age you I know, I’ll adore you and grin.

Young love requires days of madness, I say.


No doubt in my mind, you are rightly mine.

No doubt in your mind, I’m your light shining.

The smile you place upon my lips and kiss.

Letting time build and love restore within.

Poem: Wrapped Refrain – ” Opportunity or Risk? “

——

So difficult to accomplish,

No safety net, for a small wish,

Do or die; have to think about,

Worst case scenarios on my route,

Opportunity knocks, dare I open the door?

No where else to turn, if I end up on the floor.

—-

Not the same for you, you’ve a net,

When you draw, you still have safe bets, 

A job to turn to, and husband,

On me if I break; in abandon.

How can you understand my unique situation,

Can’t depend on health, keeping me situated.

—-

I’m feeling great doubt, I’m unsure.

I’ve only begun, can’t leap assured.

I have to see the ‘ins’ and ‘outs,’

Before I can tell you what I’m about.

Darkness lingers in my mind, pressure I cannot define.

You don’t know what it’s like in my shoes, undecided.

—-

A gigantic opportunity,

To pass up, is it lunacy?

Calculated risks are fine,

Tell me where to draw finite line.

If I can’t do this career, and I’m not that into sales.

You see differently, maybe I can help people sail.

—-

Find a better life, find their health,

To begin, I have little wealth.

I haven’t been planing to divert,

My path in this local –invert,

Thoughts moving, teetering in changed direction.

Choices not made easily, self-reflection.

—-

Don’t believe I have enough wage,

Writing, my dream of life changing.

Can’t make living off of dreaming,

But changing wheels, believing.

New thoughts, career movements could alter future path.

No security if I go off, what happens in depressions wrath?

—-

Bubbling thoughts in my mind,

Jets in whirlpool, the sucking kind,

How do I be cheerful often,

How to make my shell, crack, soften,

I’m scared I can’t do it; keep seeing my fail safe.

So difficult choosing, God guide your small waif.
