    As father's Day approaches I was inspired to

    write this. MY DAD Sometimes occasions come our way, Inspiring memories good and bad. The occasion that is now close at hand, Brings me memories of my dad. The things he taught me have stayed in place, And have become a map for me to tread. As he told me about the things in...

    In Sleepless Hours

    In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    Yes I don't like you like that.

    ..but that is why I can't have you...this will be complicated and your understanding is priceless...even if I wanted you I still couldn't have you...and since I don't have you...I don't want you...and if I did want you I'd have you... but your presence is what I want right now...

    ******* hate feelings Hate falling in love

    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim. My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...

    YOUR STORIES (c) 2015 Edward York I always

    enjoyed when I met with you, You greeted me with a smile. I shook your hand and had a seat, And visited for a while. Your hand I felt was full of wrinkles, It was also stiff and cold. But your stories have warmed my heart, Since I was eight years old. Your stories were full of...

    I created waves for you,

    tuned them perfectly to go with the wind. A glass of cherry red and a fine book too. Started from the clouds and changed each hue. Made them fine-tasting cupcakes so you would ask for me. Sang you a fine tune when you couldn't see. My voice was there when everyone had left. My...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Blue day Lots of stress Feeling tired Phone

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.
