Poet:


I Just Want To be Good To You

Category: Love Poems | 2 comments

I don’t want to own you
Don’t want to control you
I want to be good to you
I don’t want to make you sad
And I’ll never treat you bad
I just want to be good to you
Real love is not possessive
It doesn’t know of jealousy
I gladly gives without thought of taking
Just like the love between you and me

I just want to be good to you

I don’t want to hold you back
I want you to face the fact
That I just want to be good to you
And when hard times visit you
I’ll comfort and see you through
Cause I just want to be good to you
True love is something that sustains you
It makes you glad to be alive
It helps you realize your hopes and your dreams
Together, side by side

I just want to be good to you

Your reputation
Is what you think you are
In a galaxy of people
You can be a shining star
Your reputation
It can make you
Or it can break you

Your reputation
Is what other people see
It’s their way of making you
Into what they want you to be
You can be broken
By words spoken
By your reputation

Your reputation
Can push you ahead
It can give you wings of gold
Or feet of lead
Your reputation
It can make you
Or it can break you

Your reputation
Is based upon your actions
It loses its grip
If you don’t give satisfaction
You can be broken
By words spoken
By your reputation

I’m Beyond Your Perception of Me


It’s just the tip of the iceberg
you know
You’ve only scratched the surface
What stands before you is an
infinite soul
A life that’s filled with purpose
I’m more than
You’ll ever know
More than you see
I’m beyond your perception of me

You’ve known me for the longest time
I live and work beside you
You’ve discounted this heart of mine
Even though it beats true
My love is brighter
Than the stars
Deeper than the sea
I’m Beyond your peception of me

We walk alone, along the path
Find kindred souls in passing
Learn lessons in the aftermath
Of scars that are everlasting
Life is journey
Of becoming
All we can be
I’m Beyond your peception of me

Hope Is The Answer


Man is an employee
Working and sweating
Every single day
Doesn’t make much money
Still, he’s got bills to pay
He questions the master
And has a long wait for his reply
Just when he’s going to give up
Comes the revelation
That hope is the answer

Woman is a mother
She’s got a lot of mouths to feed
Feels like a martyr
Frustration is what she bleeds
So many disappointments
Yet her faith it keeps her strong
Kids need someone to look up to
In times of desperation
Hope is the answer

So much suffering and heartache
Bourne upon this worldly plain
So many caught up in it
That can’t see beyond their pain
Cries the wisdom of the ages
All wounds are healed in time
Like a beacon to the future
Shines the inspiration
That hope is the answer
