Counting Kisses

Counting Kisses

I stopped counting your kisses I get daily,
Because I know they come from you naturally.
I belong with you, and you belong with me,
And that is the way God meant it to be.
It’s a glorious mystery how lovers meet
And use opportunities put at their feet.
There is no other love of my life I see,
And your love makes it easy to believe
You’re the only one I really need.

The Calling

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

The Calling

Who are we, and what are we suppose to be,
that is the question.
Scientists have proved DNA plays a part,
and that a basic start.
Memories of once-forgotten fantasies stay
when we used to play pretend.
The world of the imagination could create
any nation from a look in a book.
All too soon expectations of society, and
others dreams become a reality.
In the middle of life, a signal from your soul
lets you feel something’s wrong.
In the mirror, your stare at your face, and
wonder if you’re in the right place.
There have been people who have lived
several lives upon this earth,
and changes happened, initiated by
a series of circumstances.
The days of our lives seem to be a constant
search of who and what we can be,
and sometimes we finding our calling.
Then we search for the knowledge of how
we can do what we want to do,
and this feeling within us drives us to make
the changes that need to be made.
Changes are made with challenges, and
feelings, time, and money are the costs.
Without these changes, though, I believe
the soul wanders, and the calling’s lost.

The Texas Ranger

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Christopher Benedict

The Texas Ranger

Up before the day has begun, he puts on his
hat as he walks out of the door. The morning
sun glows over the horizon and the open land
is warmed, minute by minute, with the heat.
The rider mounts and leaves, with the hooves
of the horse to keep the beat of the trail.
Twin guns bounce by his side, and they protect
any attempts to question his sense of pride.
There were times at the Bucking Bronco Saloon
that justice was served at the bar, especially
when, in popular cases, it was courtroom.
The Ranger has his days in court, even
when there were no cases scheduled for the day.
But in the morning he rides to follow the truth,
when bad meant bad, good was good, and
justice had a way of branding it’s own man.

From a Chinese proverb

From a Chinese proverb

When you really want to see who you are,
Do not look in a mirror to get a clear point of view
Because the looking glass presents an opposite image
Of perhaps an unwanted reality; left becomes right,
Good turns to evil and the light can become dark.
Seek the truth from those around you, and
Be judged by your actions, not by your words.
Through these years, you can see what
kind of person you can be.

The New One You Gained

The New One You Gained

Losing what seems your world
is, indeed, great sacrifice,
but when events are put into
perspective, you find your life.

When you look at your problems,
there’s no one to be blamed.
With affairs of the heart, the ones
you love should not be ashamed.

Time stands still for one, and
you wake up to a brand-new day.
The old way of life’s gone, but
think of the new one you gained.

A Claim for your Heart of Gold

A Claim for your heart of gold

I’m gonna stake my claim for your heart of gold.
I know our love will never be bought or sold,
and we’ll love each other even when we get old.
I know when the Lord coupled us, he broke the mold.
I’m gonna stake my claim for your heart of gold.

Burning Bridges

Burning Bridges

Your love for me is in your imagination,
And you want to give us another try
when all I want to say to you is “good-bye.”
Your feelings for me grow inside your head
when in reality, my love for you is dead.
You always think of excuses for me to stay,
when I am thinking about how to get away.
Your images of me are just a gross fantasy,
based on how you want relationships to be.
I’m sorry that I ever came your way,
and I’m telling you I’m leaving today.
I don’t care if this bridge to the past is
burned because I know I will never return.

Playing the Game

 Playing the Game

 

You look in the mirror and start to cry,
And the more you look, you wonder why.
The problem lies in the way you like to see,
And you live your life in a fake fantasy.
Your friends and boss gave you clues,
But you haven’t yet got the big news.
Dry your tears and look out a window
To get a view of the cold, real show.
Your knight in shining armor has a flaw.
One who loves you has been by all along.
Get past your problems with some change
And you will get back playing the game.

Weighed Words

Weighted Words

Editors Note: This poem was submitted to be included in the book, “Eber & Wein Publishing’s Best Poets of 2015” following an invitation by the company and the poem will compete for prizes, including a grand prize of $2000.

When there is a wrenching pain
which haunts you every minute
of every hour of every day,
every letter spoken is an ounce,
every word a pound, and
every paragraph a ton.
Words are wasted in the heat
of arguments, but the words
which weigh the most are
the words that are never said.
