Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I've longed to linger
Long in your embrace
I am stunned
By the depth
And am moved
I see the children
We'll have when I see your face

Echoes of love
Surround me as I gaze
Without guile
I am lost while
Searching your eyes
As my spirit flies

I've learned to reject
Any denial
That comes with
Being made
A complete pariah
Due to my surrender

For I long
For you
Only you
Not as a savior
Or messiah
I long for you
To complete my heart

Without you
I will spiral
Into a pit
Of despair
I love you
I miss you
I wait upon your arrival

In my heart
You are here
I stand fast
Come complete me
This is a love
That will last
Do not delay
Be fast
