Humanity

Postby Kline » Thu Feb 05, 2004 9:28 am

Humanity

Tides rise to the weeping Angel's song
The Moon casts silvery beauty over Creation
Time slips past unnoticed in the crush of Life
And a child's laugh gives birth to a million Dreams

The gentle caress of Mother's touch is pure Love
Father's wisdom is the building block of Character
Grandparents indulge the young with contented Splendor
While children run and play in youth's Immortality

All around Life blooms vibrant and colorful
While the Histories are lived and recorded for tomorrow
The Present is eternal since the future awaits us
And the Ties that bind are spider silk and tattered lace

Beauty

Postby Kline » Thu Feb 05, 2004 10:20 am

Beauty

I look upon you, and I see goodness
I listen to you, and I hear caring
I speak with you, and I find kindness
I think of you, and I know wonder

These are the gifts you bring to this world
These special qualities so often lacking
I cherish in you their life
I rejoice in you their presence

Dreams within dreams are fulfilled
Some faith in our people restored
Your heart to warm the evening chill
And your smile to light the midnight sky

Combat Soldier

Postby Kline » Thu Feb 05, 2004 11:07 am

Combat Soldier

O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
Defending your Nation's Pride, Stand tall- your head held high
O-oh Soldier...Combat Soldier,
Protecting Red, White and Blue- America will honor you

O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
Smoke fills the evening sky, Orders come- you don't ask why
O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
Into the firefight... war goes on through the night


O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
Stay low- head to the ground, bombs blasting all around
O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
Fighting in foreign lands, dying on foreign sands

O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
Time's up- your job is done, Death arrives for everyone
O-oh Soldier... Combat Soldier,
You're fought- you've done your best, you've earned your final rest....

-Farewell Soldier

That combat soldier one is nice I can just see all his comrades at the funeral honoring him with last sendoff chanting/singing that.

here's a psuedo haiku-

wisps of steam rising from the water
acrid stench of burning flesh
this beach is crowded
Why are pirates pirates?
They just AAAARRRRRR!

Again, many thanks. I will be posting more tonight... I am at work right now.
Also, the Combat Soldier posting was done from memory (I did that many years ago)- I have the original at home and will complete it this evening.

Breaking Glass

Postby Kline » Thu Feb 05, 2004 5:40 pm

Breaking Glass

Heated words and angry thoughts
Poisoned feelings burn your soul
Shout your rage and spit your venom
Flying dishes scar the walls

Standing silent through it all
Hoping it's over sooner than later
Watching hate mar your beauty
Taking it in like times before

Trying to remember what once was
Wanting and fearing it's the last time
Listen to the sound of Our Death
It's not a rattle, but a scream!

In my face you rant and rave
Something you throw finally scores
Picking up a thin silver band
Inside I feel the Breaking Glass

Away

Postby Kline » Thu Feb 05, 2004 5:45 pm

Away

I sense your hurt. I know what you are going through, believe me, I've been there myself. I am always here for you, I promise. Whatever happens, I'll be your truest friend- I understand.

I know that a real friend is what you need. I'll do my best to never, ever let you down. I only pray that you believe me when I say, I wish I could wipe your pain away.

Your Beating Heart

Postby Kline » Thu Feb 05, 2004 5:52 pm

Your Beating Heart

I hold you close, in a lovers embrace, and feel the thunder inside you. Time smiles upon us, and stills itself so we may- for an infinite moment- become as one... our hearts and souls touching in the ways of Faerie Tale romance.

In that brief pause in time, I drink you in with my senses; the sight of your beauty, the scent of your skin, the taste of your love, and the feel of your body.

All too soon time resumes its path, sorry for its intrusion upon our lives, and we part. Though saddened by having to release you, I take comfort from the sensation I felt- from your beating heart.

California Storm

In the glow of computers light,
Bundled up tight
Against the chill of the night,
I jump with fright!

The flash leaving my sight
All right
For the rest of the gale,
With the pea size hail,

And the leaves who flail,
On the branches that fight,
Forced to rail,
Now resigned to their plight.

To Serve

Postby Kline » Fri Feb 06, 2004 9:18 am

To Serve

Daily do I don this uniform of mine
Daily the words spill forth- Yes, Sir.. Yes, Ma'am
Daily does the Pride swell inside me
Daily do I answer my Country's call....

I am a soldier in the United States Army
Living and Serving to Protect and Defend
Those Freedoms which you take for granted
My brothers, sisters and I give of ourselves- to feed Liberty's fire

My world is six years older, six years broader
Depth and breadth filled from Life's spring
Honor earned with oaths redeemed
Experience gained and valued beyond price

My time draws near, soon to go Home
Lessons learned have shaped my soul
Duty done has filled my mind
I hang my uniform one final time

- Yet Duty never ends

In Your Arms

Postby Kline » Fri Feb 06, 2004 9:35 am

In Your Arms

I know what I am seeking
I think I've glimpsed it near
I've heard rumor of its existance
It's thought that I hold dear

I've looked my whole life for it
I've seen it, then lost it again
Where was it, last I saw it?
Have you any idea, my friend?

It's sweet as mountain water
As precious as sivler or gold
Never personally have I held it
Of it's truth I have only been told

In stories and in legends
Tales of its magic and its charms
I think I have finally found it
I've found love when in your arms

I, uh, wrote this for my wife before she was my wife.... and stuff.


Flowers

Into the petal a cool drop of dew
It's pretty pink colors remind me of you.
The fragrance so sweet it engulfs your distress;
I hold you so close in eternal caress.

A dozen red roses to express my keen love
In no way compare to my darling, my dove.
So how can I say these words in my mind?
When the moment is right - those words I can't find.

So deep in my silence of your love I do sing,
And ten million daisies know the feelings you bring,
With love clouded vision, and lofty blue skies
I see my beloved deep down in your eyes.

Sincerely in love I've forgotten my pain.
With you on my mind I've forgotten the rain.
Your love has consumed all my illusions, you see,
So now I am sure you're the one just for me.

Brady Frost.

The poem above isn't really characteristically me. Maybe that says something... I'm naturally a bit more dark and brooding. Unfortunately.


Solitude

When hurt and love mold together as one
You read the words in the setting sun.
When love untangles to show my heart
The tears will fall when we're apart.

When flowers sway in the cool morning breeze
And laughter plays while poets tease,
When friends smile out from a photograph
You remember and can't help but laugh.

Those are the times that make us whole
That is why I'll play my role,
But I am me, and not meant to boast
So in solitude I'll hurt the most.

Ok, last one, I won't torture you any more....

To Understand

Clouds controlled the midnight sky
As rain came pouring down.
And there I stood with heart in hand
In quite the loathsome town.

My Love, she ran into the storm,
Without a thought she fled.
And when I found her in the night
She lay so close to dead.

I held her limp within my arms
As I cried out to the sky.
And for what reason she ran away
I wanted to know why.

When she died there in my grasp
My heart just broke in two.
So now I shy from heartfelt glance
Although I long for you.

Brady Frost.
