January 31, 2010 - It's A Small World

It's A Small World

There is a dream in the back of my mind
Of a tomorrow in that hopeful place
Deep down inside the heart of me
Where peace has a face

A dream of peace and harmony
An end to all unrest
Where love is shared by each and everyone
No longer to be repressed

Our world has become a smaller place
Language barriers are virtually removed
We share the small things important in our hearts
And relationships have been improved

We have special friends in distant lands across the sea
Once strangers impossible for us to meet
We are reaching out and holding hands
Touching minds and changing hearts
And the face of peace I do foresee

January 30, 2010 - Faith - Belief In Things Unseen

Faith - Belief In Things Unseen

She bows her head in prayer
Every chance she gets
And prays for a world
She is afraid God will forget

She wonders as she makes her plea
To the Lord above
If anything she says is heard
And if there is still love

She freezes for a moment
In her doubt and anxiety
And dwells upon the state of things
In this world she sees

She wonders if God still cares
Or has He grown tired of our unrest
And if her prayers will fall on deaf ears
Or will they still be blessed

But she keeps in mind that there is always hope
And she recalls her belief
And prays and prays with all her heart
For God to send this world relief

January 30, 2010 - One In Love

One in Love
True Love does not have an opposite
Yet many think that it is fear
It is more powerful than anything you will ever feel
And is the air that surrounds you here

Everything that exists no matter in what way
Good or bad, powerful or weak
Appears and lives among this love
And one with it will be

To choose to not be one in love
Is not possible nor does it make sense
This I cannot separate from
Nor will I ever hence

These times we live in
Often make it easy to forget why we are here
We must see that we are one in love
As love is what brought us here

January 29, 2010 - Tears of Joy

Tears of Joy

Tears of joy are different tears
Than those brought on by pain
Yet the emotions wrought in the soul
Are very near the same

These tears are felt as deeply
And as strong as their counterparts
As they purify and renew
Precisely the same heart

The beautiful thing about tears of joy
Is that in their shedding this they bring
Your grief and pain are scattered
As in your heart healing rings

January 28, 2010 - Empty Boxes

Empty Boxes

Some people are like empty boxes
That have been wrapped in beautiful paper
And tied with lovely bows
You size them up and shake them around
To try and determine what is inside
There you find a beautiful empty box

Some people are like the crushed boxes
That the mail delivery system has damaged
Their packaging is torn and creased and often dirty
But inside they are packaged so well
And all of the contents are there and intact
And those contents are so very beautiful

January 27, 2010 - Follow The One

Follow The One

This path that I'm on I walk alone
Don't get ahead get behind me
I reach my destination
With the One in my heart to guide me

You speak of the wisdom of ages
And say what will be will be
While inside you a battle it rages
And your confusion is as deep as the sea

You offer a hand to lead me along my path
When you don't know your own way
I walk alone on this path I'm on
And follow the One to whom I pray

January 26, 2010 - Run Through

Run Through

My shield and sword I keep with me
By my side each day
Ever ready to face what comes
To meet me on my way

A band of warriors by my side
With the greatest care
Fighting unseen foes on all planes
By lifting up their prayers

Iniquity comes and it will aim
To break a heart that's true
But a warrior on the righteous path
Will its wickedness run through

January 25, 2010 - Broken Halos and Wings

Broken Halos and Wings

My halo has plummeted
And I have broken both my wings
I don't think I will ever be the same again
As I no longer have these things

Yesterday I was young and innocent
I had never been kissed
Now I have fallen and can't find my way
And my innocence has gone amiss

What happened to the young girl
Who looked upon the world with starry eyes
Who always told the truth and never felt the need to lie
I am afraid she has been exposed to this world

It is a shame that growing up our innocence does take
And how our halo's plummet from our brow
The way in which our wings do break
And we lose that trusting heart we have somehow

January 24, 2010 - Insanity Defined

Insanity Defined

Fools rush in where fools have been before
To repeat yesterday's mistakes
As if they want to be fooled forevermore
And keep the tracks of tears upon their face

They put no lessons learned under their belt
And run quickly back in the door
As if the blow received was never felt
Fools run blindly back for more

They put the weight of the world upon their back
And never ask for a helping hand
And feign surprise in response to an attack
On everything that they command

No different tactic do they take when going back again
And proceed as if they have lost their mind
Expecting the results to change and this time to win
Is this not insanity defined?

January 23, 2010 - Paper and Ink

Paper and Ink

Sitting at my desk so many nights
With ink of black and paper white
Reflecting on my pain and joy
I look into my very soul and write

Sometimes I wonder if anyone understands
What it is I am trying to say
Do I truly express my joy and pain
And do they share those feelings I convey

Do they cry with me when they read my pain
Like I cried when I wrote it down
And do they smile at the joy I share
About the love that I have found

Do they feel my loss and joy like they feel their own
When they read the words I write
With ink of black on paper white
So many, many nights.

I can only hope that my joy is felt
When the words I write are read
As is my pain and loss
And that at least one reading them will understand
How much baring ones soul can cost

January 22, 2010 - You Catch Me

You Catch Me

You saw the truth in my eyes today
You felt it reflected in all that you are
The truth was not as you thought it would be
From your thoughts it was so far

I found myself falling and reaching out
To something I thought wasn't there
To stop my fall from breaking me
And leaving me with only open air

Hitting the ground I thought would break
Everything that I am in two
Yet I have fallen and not hit the ground
Because your love for me is true

Your love it caught me in its net
And made me see the truth
You are there reaching out
And I have not been trusting you

January 21, 2010 - Always Here

Always Here

I took out all of your love letters
And I read them again one by one
Gathered up all of our pictures
And recalled everything
We'd ever done

I smelled the dried rose
That I keep in my bible
Just to see if its scent was still there
And I handled it oh so gently
As coming from you it was so rare

I walked for awhile
Through all of these memories
And smiled as I recalled each part
Yes, I know
That you are no longer here with me
But you will always be
Here in my heart

January 20, 2010 - Borrowed Pain

Borrowed Pain

 What impels us to go there
And visit that pain
To torture ourselves
When there is nothing to gain

Why do we have to continually fight
Against what is in us
And what is without
Trying to do what is right

What is this battle we feel
That pulls at the strings of our heart
Our happiness steals
And tears us apart

Is it our conscience that stings
Or our pride that smarts
When we look inside
This place called our heart

What is it that makes us bring
Ourselves to look so deep inside
Until what we find takes our voice
And we can no longer sing

Neva Flores 2010

January 19, 2010 - Kismet (Destiny)


I hold to that which knew what was
Before this came to be
Seeking answers for what is
And what it has to be

I inquire of that which saw first
What was before it changed
Going backwards into time
It's all been prearranged

What will be has come to pass
And no one questions why
Seeking answers from the past
And time goes quickly by

Knowing less than before
I sought the answers true
Backwards forwards steps retraced
I seek it now from you

January 18, 2010-Transparent


I am taken aback by your vision strong
How you see what is true
You see every layer here
Is my soul that transparent to you?

To one who is accustomed
To having the eyes that truly see
How strange is this sensation
As you see inside of me

You see the depth that runs within
The love that pours right out
A free spirit that must create
You truly see what I'm about

Jan 17, 2010 - My Mountain

My Mountain

All of my life
I have been climbing a mountain
And been beset often, by vast days of strife
I never quite reach the top
Yet, I keep climbing and I'll never stop

I have been fighting a battle
Sometimes with each step that I take
Fighting off demons with angels
While deciding what to keep or forsake

The vision of truth in my destination
Some days is so very unclear
Of which paths I should be taking
And of which paths
I should steer clear

No matter how hard this endeavor
Ever it shall become
To get to the top of this mountain
I shall persistently climb

Learning always
From all my mistakes
Until, my journey

Is done

January 16, 2010-If I Had To Choose

If I Had To Choose

If I knew
That tomorrow would not come
And I only had today
I would want to spend each moment
That I had left
Right here with you

If I had to choose
To forget everything and everyone
I have ever known, except for one
I would choose
To remember only you

If I had to pick one place
To be the last place I could ever be
I would choose your arms
To hold me tenderly

January 15, 2010 - Smile Again

Smile Again

This too shall pass they said
I did not believe a word
The rain it continued to fall on me
And all direction, seemed to be blurred

Each and every day was a fight
Just to have the get up and go
The will to continue to battle at all
If I still had I just didn't know

Then something so profound
Was shared with me
And oh, how it opened my eyes
A friend told me I would find my smile again
And I found my friend to be wise

I did find my smile again
Direction once again became clear
I found the strength to battle right on
And the will to release all of my fears

My Thoughts

You are the first thought on my mind
Each day when I awake
You roam between the rest
All throughout my day

You are the last thought on my mind
Before I drift off to sleep
And you walk in all my dreams
It seems my thoughts you keep

If I should wake or drift off to sleep
And thoughts of you are not on my mind
I will not be here at all
I believe that one will find

January 13, 2010 - The Pulse of My Heart - "mo chuisle"

 The Pulse of My Heart
"mo chuisle"

You are the pulse of my heart
My protector and my guide
I will love you until the end of time
And always be by your side

There are no chains that bind this love
That I offer to you now
No change in you would I dare make
This is my solemn vow

I accept you as you are
And love you unconditionally
My only wish, Pulse of My Heart
Is that you do the same for me

Friend of My Soul

You are my "Anam Cara"
The eternal friend of my soul
This we share together
Is ancient and it's whole

We have no secrets
Each others light we share
No time or distance can sever
This bond we have declared

Our friendship is open
And our trust it is complete
Our souls radiate together
As we accept one another
With no tarnish of deceit

January 11, 2010 - The Lighted Path

The Lighted Path

That which is has come to me
And reared its pretty head
Believing I'm deceived by what it brings
And what is left unsaid

I can see its beauty from afar
But I know what hides within
What it wants to change back in me
It will never have again

It shows to me a crooked path
And says it is the way
Offers up a hand to lead me in the dark
But from the true path I'll not stray

I will never hesitate or give up hope
Or lose this light that burns within
Or my belief that a difference can be made
In this world that we live in

January 10, 2010 - Never Find Again

Never Find Again

There is such a sweetness
In the time I spend with you
Closeness like I have never felt
And I know you feel it too

Such mountains we have climbed
What bridges we have built
As we have learned one another
In all these feelings we have felt

We have come to a crossroad
And must decide which way to turn
Will we go around the mountains
Or the bridges burn

We can't deny this sweetness
And the beauty that is within
What we two have built and climbed
We may never find again

January 09, 2010- Let It Out

Let It Out

You came and stood in silence
You never said a word
I felt your pain so loudly
What you never said I heard.

What is it that you are afraid of
It cannot be the light
It is what you are drawn to
It is clearly in your sight

I feel everything you don't say
As if you had spoken out
Don't just continue in your silence
You need to let it out

January 08, 2010- The Truth

The Truth

I walk through this life
With no blinders on my eyes
Never looking back
Or on either side

I am seeking what's ahead
Not regretting what's behind
I walk through this life
With an open mind

I am taking every step
Rounding every turn
My heart seeks only truth
And the knowledge to discern

As I take each step
I know not if the ground is firm
Yet with faith, I continue on
And the truth I learn

January 07, 2010 - To Get To You

To Get To You

If there were a bridge
I had to cross
Above the cliffs and water blue
I would cross and all fear hide
To find my way to you

Though weak and brittle it may be
I would never falter
It may swing and creak and sway
My love for you
It would not alter

I may slip and I may fall
Unto a certain death
For this I've no concern
I'll keep crossing
To get to you
Until I take
My last breath

January 06, 2010 - Perception


I do not know you
And you do not know me
Our own perception
Is all that we see

I see black and white
You see shades of gray
Where I see hope
You walk away

I live by the old ways
You live by the new
Where I see light
Is darkness to you

Space and silence
Is something I need
Noise and attention
Your senses they feed

I may be wrong
You may not be right
One's perception of things
Is no reason to fight

January 05, 2010 - Fire


My Love you are so deep
And you run so wide
Your tender words of love
Have built in me a fire inside

This fire it is white-hot
It burns deep inside my soul
I fear it will consume me
If soon you I do not hold

Such a fire you have created
It has flames that reach the sky
Come and quench this fire
you've started
And your love to me
Do not deny

January 04, 2010 - Inspired


A magical world has been opened
Such beauty now I can see
I have been breathed upon
And my pen will not let me be

There aren't enough words to describe
The feelings that come rushing in
Each time that I hear your voice
I find myself here with my pen

Eloquent words I use to express
The changes wrought here in my soul
I have been breathed upon
And my pen to this paper it goes

If I find that I have to write
Forever a day and a night
To express just how beautiful
You make me feel
No doubt, with my pen, I will

My Everything

I wish I could place you deep inside my heart
Show you how much I love you so
Wrap myself around you
And never let you go

I wish that I could take you for a walk
Through these feelings I call mine
And show you how I feel for you
Perhaps then my love I could define

I want to share every part of me with you
And not withhold a single thing
So I hand this heart of mine to you
In it

You'll find my everything

January 02, 2010 - A Mighty Hand

*Used with Permission of

A Mighty Hand

I stand here and survey this world
As far as the eye can see
I take in all its beauty rare
And it amazes me

How could this world of ours
Just evolve into, what it's come to be
There has to be a mighty hand
That created this
Just for you and me

I will ever and always believe
And from this will never part
It was the mighty hand of God
That created what I see
This I know
Deep in the heart of me.
