Heaven Now

Heaven Now

Fools will clutch their gospels close to chest and all exalt
How Heaven will begin for them when their body does halt
They’ll talk about how, “All is peace and love and joy and bliss”
Somewhere down the road while the present moment they miss
It is because I was present that I saw Heaven, now
Because I paid full attention, I was stunned and said, “Wow”
It is because I knew Heaven was right there in my sights
That I paid full attention to Heaven each of those nights
I showed Heaven how much I cared, I did the work each day
I called, I listened, empathized, I loved, I did not pray
I did not beg for my Heaven, nor did I sit and wait
I went out, searched and found Heaven, my graceful, loving mate
My head is not within the clouds, I care not for “beyond”
‘Cause Heaven’s something with which I share a tremendous bond
No tomorrow, no rapture, no hoping for a dream
No clouds and pearly gates and angels needed to redeem
Heaven’s now and she’s my wife, my Queen, my love, my friend
Who’d have thought that Heaven could all the way here extend?

Complete

19 Oct

Complete

She sees him saunter by
She gives out a soft sigh
She wishes that he felt the same
About her, that an equal flame
That burned for her as she has for this guy

But he is just polite
Near her he feels no fright
He simply smiles and is quite nice
But he does not feel the same vice
That grips her when she is around this knight

He leaves and she’s left feeling
Incomplete and revealing
Like something’s missing in her life
She thinks if she becomes his wife
That she will undergo some soulful healing

And that is what is wrong
With all of those who long
And pine and crush and fantasize
For someone beautiful and wise
To “complete” them, they do not see how strong

And beautiful and wise
They are without allies
Complete already on their own
Complete with just their skin and bone
Complete without those relationship ties

A partner, spouse or mate
A bride, groom, or a date
May compliment and benefit
But one day we must all admit
To be complete on our own is our fate

People may come and go
Loved ones buried below
But no matter who may be around
“Completeness” will never be found
Because no other person can bestow

Completeness since it’s there
We’re complete if we dare
To not rely on others to
Make us feel complete, happy, new
There’s no need for dreaming, wishes and prayer

One day this girl admits
Accepts, concedes, permits
Herself to feel complete alone
Which changes her once needy tone
To confident, content and plenty wits

Her old crush does return
But old flame does not burn
She no longer needs him to be
The missing piece to set her free
For him no longer does she pine and yearn

He notices her now
Intense gaze on her brow
A confidence so few possess
He steps toward her to assess
And sees someone who has a complete glow

And it makes him feel small
He feels his courage stall
He sees how content this girl seems
And so the young man smiles and beams
And wants to know more ‘cause she does enthrall

He asks her for a date
“Pick you up at 8?”
She smiles and shakes her head at him
“I’ll be working out at the gym
Maybe some other time, for now you’ll wait”

He blinks and is confused
His massive ego bruised
Incomplete because she turned
Him down and his offer was spurned
He can’t recall when last he was refused

And he begins his own
Journey to what she’s known
That completeness does not depend
On family, stranger or friend
Just on the person there when you’re alone

Love Is…

Love Is…

Love is second nature
Love Is reflex, love’s innate
No struggle or effort needed
To care for your mate

Love obliterates ego
To point where there’s no “I”
Love for someone else bids that
Selfish ego goodbye

Love is instinct, built within
Our blood and DNA
Love does not need to “cool down”
True love has no delay

We see it in our animals
In how they care for young
Inherent duty to protect
The small lives which have sprung

We see it in the packs that travel
Together in wild
Loyalty for each other
Even the beasts reviled

But true love is so rare among
The human race it seems
A concept that only exists
Within most people’s dreams

Because the human mind is shackled
With such selfishness
Fear of hurt, embarrassment
Of having to confess

Their true love for another
Worry seeps in and corrupts
Choking the life out of love
As the ego erupts

Love is never angry and
Love is never hostile
‘Cause love is made of empathy
And ‘cause love walks a mile

In the loved one’s shoes and love
Lets go of own opinion
Love is not a slave to fear
And is not ego’s minion

Love is brave and bold and love
Makes no apologies
Love envigors, love strengthens
Love heals, love tames, love frees

From “me,” from “I,” from “myself” and
It opens selfish eyes
To smallness of the ego while
It makes the spirit rise

Happy Birthday Sweetness

Happy Birthday Sweetness

Happy Birthday to Sweetness
My loving, graceful wife
The most wonderful person to
Ever enter my life

The one who cares, the one who dares
The one so pure in heart
The one with so much grace and love
It sets her far apart

A special day this is indeed
For on December 8th
A little girl was born who would
Grow up to instill faith

She’d think not of herself but what
She could give and assist
And it has been my privilege
To make sure that she’s kissed

And held and hugged and supported
And make sure it’s expressed
Just how special you are and
Just how much we’re all blessed

Happy Birthday Sweetness, my
Beautiful loving bride
My source of inspiration who
I proudly walk beside

                                     Love, Miro

Watering Flowers

15 Sep

“There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment.”  ~Robert Brault

Watering Flowers

There was a flower named Woman
Who, much like other flowers
Needed watering to bloom
But the name of these showers

Were “compliment” and “gratitude”
“Acknowledgement” and “praise”
These simple words of kindness made
This flower’s petals raise

Unfortunate to say the least
That there were very few
Who made the effort to water
These flowers so they grew

The thought was silly to most men
Who felt abashed to say
Anything that would help these
Flowers bloom all the way

Or if they didn’t think it silly
Then they were afraid
That despite good intentions, the
Flower would be dismayed

Harassment, innuendo, or
Some other type of tease
Said only to get something
So they themselves could please

One truth about the world is that
There are so few who speak
Words that are not intended
To be a harsh critique

There are so few who compliment
That any flattery
Will almost always be taken
With elation and glee

“You look nice today,” “I love
What you’ve done with your hair”
“You have a lovely smile,” few men
Ever seem to dare

“You’re beautiful,” “You’re gorgeous,”
“You are stunning,” “You’re so cute”
Every man can say these things
But most of them are mute

But pay attention if you have
The guts to say these things
You men, look closely, see what kind of
Radiance it brings

To Woman’s face when she’s watered
With this kind of affection
The pure smile, the joyful eyes
And rosy, warm complexion

So speak up, men, be Warriors
Not just with swords and spears
But with your words which can be liquid
Life to Woman’s ears

Screw Ups

8 Jul

Screw Ups

We’re told that should stand by those
Who are having it rough
But there’s a point where even Warriors
Say “That’s enough”

We show support and have hope much
Longer than most would last
But there’s a point where patience should
Be a thing of the past

And that’s with Screw Ups, people who
Aren’t trying very hard
People with ingratitude
Who simply disregard

The caring and concern that their
Friends and family show
Once again, the Warrior
Says what causes most woe

“What you’re doing hasn’t,
Doesn’t, and won’t work for me
I’m letting go ‘cause you’re a Screw Up
Of highest degree”

The Warrior lets go and stops
Letting Screw Ups frustrate
They don’t hold animosity
Or any kind of hate

They simply give up hope which is
An act most cannot do
We want to think that everyone
Could improve and come through

The Warrior’s a realist
And knows a truth that’s bleak:
Some people are permanently
Selfish, scared and weak

The Warrior has the courage
To let the Screw Ups go
They must fend for themselves if they
Do stand a chance to grow

And Warriors are weary when
A Screw Up says they’ve changed
They know that transformation won’t come
From being estranged

It comes from striving, pondering
From giving, sacrifice
It comes from letting go of self
Which is a heavy price

That most Screw Ups just cannot pay
Because “self” is their life
They place their own happiness before
That of a husband, wife

A son, a daughter or parent
A stranger or a friend
Quit on Screw Ups and your time
On better causes spend

Angel In My Bed

7 Jul

Angel in my Bed

Some days I battle through much hell
But each morning’s the same
I wake up, turn and see an angel
Who helps me reclaim

Some strength, some grace, some belief that
There’s beauty still on Earth
Her peaceful slumber always gives me
Some much needed mirth

I see her still serenity
And feel a wave of peace
I’m grateful to have one person
Who makes my calm increase

She’s like a peaceful lake or a
Perfect golden sunset
In her presence I feel no stress
No worry, doubt or fret

It makes me take a moment to
Appreciate the grace
That still exists in this cynical
Negative, snide place

And it inspires me to show
The same grace on my quest
When I go outside and am put
To the world’s rigid test

An angel in my bed each morning
Always helps remind
That beauty sleeps beside me before
I’m off to the grind
