I will always wait for you

My body is yearning for your hand,
and this broken heart lonely stands.
I wait for your gentle kiss,
and those soft lips I really miss!
Your bright eyes and the way you smile,
they only last for a while.
But I will wait for you here
until you come and dry my last tear.
I love you and I miss you too,
I just want you to know
I will always be waiting for you.

Losing you...
When I saw you, I was afraid to know you.
When I knew you, I was afraid to like you.
When I liked you, I was afraid to Love you.
Now that I Love you, I'm afraid to lose you...

How Do I
By: Dawn Troutt
How did you get through
all the barriers I had erected.
Never had anyone touched
my soul till you entered into
my life.
How did it happen so easily,
without really working or trying
so hard...
it all fit like a well crafted puzzle.
How did life change so quickly,
one moment full of love and
adoration, to distances away.
How do I fix my soul, there
are no bandages large enough
to cover the ache.
How will I ever be able to truly
love someone again, when I gave
a big part of my soul away
and haven’t truly gotten it
all back.
How do I live each day, yet
knowing the pain and
emptiness within. I bury myself
deeper so the pain won’t show.
How do I tell you....
that no matter what or where,
I will love you forever.

Tell Me Softly
By: Kathy Fretwell Gandy

Take my hand
and hold it tight.
Tell me softly
things will be alright.

Kiss my cheek
and stroke my hair.
Draw me close
and say that you care.

Whisper my name
and nibble my ear.
Tell me softly
that you love me dear.

What is Death?

by Henry Scott Holland

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without affect,
without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.

All is well.

Dying Inside
by Josh Talley

I loved hearing your voice,
I loved feeling your skin.
I loved holding you close to me,
I cried when it came to an end.

If God made love,
and made it true.
Then why does he allow heartbreak,
and make us feel blue.

I see you everyday,
with your beautiful face.
I try to smile and play it off,
but I die standing their in my place.

I remember when I held you close,
so close I could feel you breathing.
But now I cant hold you close,
and my heart is torn out, bleeding.

My life is nothing,
nothing without you.
All of our memories,
is all I hold onto

Until the day
by Kellylynn

I cant fall asleep tonight.
I don't know what to do...
I hold my pillow,
but i wanna be holding you.
Lost in my sheets,
is where i wanna be,
lost in my sheets where only you can come find me.
All alone all day,
is how i wanna stay.
hoping that you will come make things okay.
I don't wanna move.
cause if i do,
I'm so afraid that somehow i just might miss you.
So here is where I'll be,
until the day I'll finally see,
Your bright brown eyes looking back at me.

whispers in the air Sep 16, 2004
whispers in the air
i hear
echoes of angels
i hear
moonlights reflections on stil waters

and quarrels of the darkness with the winds
i hear ...

A Poem for a Lost Love Nov 02, 2004
At night I lay myself wishing that I can go to sleep
To just close my eyes without ever thingking so deep
Eyelids close, seeing you with me so close
I beg you please, allow me to rest in peace

I let myself fall for you the moment I saw you
Didn't hold back on anything because I felt so true
And im giving up things without you even asking
Im still waiting despite I know its subsiding

Why did I have to fall in love with you?
Why was I not smart enough to know ,
that you never intend to love me so?
Why do I still think of you, even if I look like a fool

Its been 15 days since I last saw you, im counting
Its been 8 days since I last spoke with you, ive been crying
Im in so much pain, please let me go.
If you don’t love me, just tell me so.
Ive been drugged with sleeping pills, been drunk with
alcohol, but never a time that I forgot that Its you who
can make me feel better.

I waited for your love in hope,
That ours would come again,
And make me feel the things I felt,
When we were one, back then.

But time and distance have erased,
The things I wished anew,
And now I find myself alone,
Though I am here with you.

What good is love, that does not touch,
What good is love, that gives you pain.
What good is love, that makes you run,
And makes you lost out in the rain.

I traveled to another world,
Out far beyond the one we knew,
I thought that I could live again,
And now I find I'm back with you.

But what of hearts that beat as one,
And what of passion and embrace,
Is it too much to ask of you,
To make these tears of mine erase.

What good is love, that does not touch,
What good is love, that gives you pain.
What good is love, that makes you run,
And makes you lost out in the rain.

Too painful this - to journey back,
To times of love and laughter free,
The times we lay together with
A sense of you , a sense of me.

So now, I journey on alone,
Forever wandering, in my thoughts,
And I shall ask you once again,
What good is love.

I could write you a letter,
But what would it say?
Could it make things better?
Would it make everything okay?

I could write you a song,
Full of love hope and grace.
Would you tell me what went wrong?
Could you say it to my face?

I could make a telephone call,
And listen as you cried
But I would not let you fall,
And if you did, we'd both know I tried.

I could make the world go away
But would that be what you like?
You would miss the golden sunrays
You would miss the moonlight.

I could stop all this pain
Bring it all to an end
The tears would fall like rain
On the shoulder of a dear friend.

Deception, Art of War & confusion
What are these terms for?
Where is the War happening?
Am I the one who started the war?
Who are my enemies?
Aren▓t these people the one with whom I worked & had fun with

Using people & exploiting people
I did not wanted to do this
All I asked for are the people whom I could trust & have fun with

Choosing the path & walking the path
I never choose this path
How is that I walked on this path
Am I running for money?
Do I need success?
Where is that I am heading to?
All I wanted was to have fun.

Am I Trust worthy?
Am I Cynical?
Am I Insane?
Where is that I am heading to?
Am I confused?

Emotions, Colors, Rainbow & Rain
What are these term signify
Are these hope or illusion or disillusion
What is happening to me?
Am I confused?

Talking with the wind
Flying in the air
Swimming against the current
Is life a challenge?
Is life a flow of emotions?
Is life a learning ground?
Why is life so versatile?
What is that I want in life?
Am I confused?

Love, Betrayal, Hatred & Trust
Why are these terms used?
Why is it associated with me?
Is life an explanation?
Is life a paradox?
Is life an Irony?
Am I confused?

Brutal or Polite
Focused or Not focused
Success or No success
Fear or No fear
Confident or Pessimist
Why can▓t I be my self please?
Am I confused?

Every one has a story to tell
What is my story?
Is my story confused?
Am I confused?

Here I sit, thinking only of you
Wondering what is to become of us
Understanding all you have been through
Hoping to slowly gain your trust
My heart aches for you, and also I yearn
I want to understand you
In hopes that I will learn
Your unique and special qualities amaze me
Your smile
Your mind
Your voice and its beautiful sound
Your eyes
Your hair
Your ability to cheer me up
When you see that I am down
My feelings for you go beyond that of words
And at first it didn't seem real
But that just taught me a lesson
In doubting what I feel
It seems I dreamed you into life
And the reason for my stare
The bluest sky
The deepest sea
Don't even compare
Becky, you're so very special in every single way
And thoughts of you
Run through my head
Every hour of the day
I hope that you will understand
Just how I feel about you
I want to be your guiding hand
For all that you go through

This is more a love poem topic than inspirational. :)
May be we should change the name of the topic?

Rudyard Kipling, "If"

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Actually, I made the title Ironic to the concept.

I was so depressed and posted things I felt at the moment
I wasn't expecting and was very surprised that most men here in the
forum do have a heart for poetry.

Im now more curious, if all of you post your poems
specifically for someone as I did mine.

I usually write my own poems specifically for someone.
So this was just a poem I liked.
