February 28, 2010 - At My Helm

At My Helm

You never leave me lonely
To deal with life all by myself
I've always you to talk to
To look upon for help

When I feel discouraged
And my bad day just won't end
You gently lift me up
And carry me again

There are times that I forget
That I'm not all alone
Then you gently touch my heart
And remind me it's your home

God, I know I have a purpose
And that you have a plan
So please help me to remember
That you are in command

February 27, 2010 - Why Withhold Your Hand

Why Withhold Your Hand

What is this perfection that you require
For your unconditional love
This you say you have for me
And put nothing above

The last time that I inquired
And established the meaning of it true
Perfection should not be a requirement
To receive this love from you

If you love me as you say
In this unconditional way
Why do you withhold yourself from me
Every single day

I ask this of you now
Please help me to understand
If unconditional love has no conditions
Why do you withhold your hand?

February 26, 2010 - Today Is Yours

Today Is Yours

Don't keep running after yesterday
Searching for it's why
Seeking all the answers there
And why it made you cry

Does it really matter how it came about
Only if it over must be done
And what would be the changes
At the setting of the sun

Your regrets may be too many
Your smiles may be too few
Just put yesterday behind you
Today, it is for you

February 25, 2010 - Your Secrets


Your Secrets

What is hiding there behind those eyes
Secrets I can't see
Deeply hidden from my view
Reveal them now to me

Tell me what you dream about at night
What your desires are
Where you want to go from here
And is it very far

I want to know what makes you smile
Brings tears into your eyes
Tell me now where you have been
And what makes you sigh

Show me now what I can't see
While looking from afar
Your secrets they are safe with me
Tell me who you are

February 24, 2010 - Listen


What is this fixation that you have
This you came here for
Don't you know that what you seek
Is what was yours before

You have looked and you have longed
Mistaken all these years
Never knowing what was wrong
Crying many tears

What you miss and what you have
They are not the same
What you find here it is yours
Hear it call your name

It sings out softly to your heart
No end in sight it seems
Answer now or you will always
Hear it in your dreams

February 23, 2010 - Dancing On The Moon

 Dancing On The Moon

Last night we danced upon the moon
Cheek to cheek we two
No gravity to hold us down
Through the air we flew

All the stars they did surround us
All the planets within our view
Down below us our beloved Earth
Looking back at us two

Our bodies light as feathers
Spirits lighter still
I felt closer to you than ever
So much love I did feel

February 22, 2010 - Never Leave Me Angry

Never Leave Me Angry

When you leave me say goodbye
Always with a kiss
Never leave me angry
You must remember this

Angry words they are so hurtful
They cut so deep inside
So never leave me angry
Put aside your pride

Forgiveness is not always easy
But do it in advance
Never leave me angry
You may not have a second chance

February 21, 2010 - All Around Me

All Around Me

Breath of Life, breathe in me
Show me Thy will to be done
Thy light, Thy staff proves to me
That You are the only One

Light of Life shine on me
Brighten this world that I'm in
Hold me to your gentle side
Into my heart come in

You hold my hand and carry me
Wipe away my tears
I've felt You all around me
All throughout the years

February 20, 2010 - Forever Filled

Forever Filled

I remember everything you've written me
All the words you've said
Looking back, they come to me
From deep inside my head

Sweet memories they rush back to me
And I relive those days
I feel your love all over me
It never goes away

Recollection of the time we've spent
And how for us it stands so still
Brings such a joy inside of me
And my heart with love for you
Is forever filled

February 19, 2010 - Reaching For The Moon

Reaching For the Moon

I set out last night on a quest to catch the moon
As I flew through the sky by the shooting stars
The moon it seemed so close to me
But I found it to be too far

I continued on my quest as the night flew by
Ever reaching up into the big black sky
The moon it loomed before my hands
Then it flew right by

My night was ending and morning it drew nigh
From this futile quest I had to refrain
Tomorrow night I think perhaps
I'll reach out for something I can gain

February 18, 2010 - Your Picture

Your Picture

How can I just look at your picture
And not hold you every day
I want you more each time I look
But I can't look away

I tell myself to take it down from here
And not look at you anymore
But each time I start I stop
And I sit and look at you some more

My longing for the arms I see
Is different than before
I'd never felt them round me
Now I have and I want them even more

Sometimes I just sit here and do nothing
But want you and look into your eyes
Why do I do this to myself
I can't tell you why

February 17, 2010 - Once Again

 Once Again

Come and hold me now my love
Here I’ve always been
As in the days of our long ago
Hold me once again

Enfold me in yours arms my love
Protect me from the wind
Let come to me no harm
Hold me once again

Come and dance with me again my love
Round and round again
Look into my eyes
And dance with me again

I have waited so long for you my love
How long this wait has been
Come and hold me now my love
Hold me once again

Neva Flores  2010


February 16, 2010 - Forever Near

Forever Near

Hold me closely when I sleep
Stay forever near
Brush your lips against my brow
And whisper in my ear

Run your fingers through my hair
Rain kisses on my face
Blow your breath upon my neck
Until I awake

I will greet you with a smile
Hold you to me dear
Wrap myself around you
And stay forever near

February 15, 2010 - Hold


My mind is circling round my heart
Asking what is true
Does my heart safely abide
In all of this I do

Emotions running up and down
Heart beats fast then slow
And right when I think I'm there
I'm not sure which way to go

Loving and being loved
Such lovely words and feelings
But I'm still standing on the edge
Of accepting all this healing

Trust and all that it may be
Has never been a friend of mine
Each time I have gotten close to him
A way to break my heart he finds

Once more I'll put my heart out on a limb
And I'll be strong and bold
Trust I'll once more make my friend
And pray this limb will hold

February 14, 2010 - If Only For Awhile

If Only For Awhile

If I could only hold you close if only for awhile
A smile, it would put upon this face
I miss you more than I thought I would
No one can ever take your place
A light would spark in these eyes of green
The eyes that you make smile
If your blue eyes I could see  
If only for awhile

A gentle peace would rest inside my heart
If I could feel yours beat with mine
While I hold you close and my eyes smile
If only for awhile

Neva Flores 2010

February 13, 2010 - If There Were

If There Were

If there were no promises ever broken
And all our dreams came true
Oh, what a world we would live in
The days we could wake up to

If one were never lied to
Never taken in by deception
Trust could be gained so easily
Without exception

If hearts remained in love forever
Never tiring never breaking
No heartaches would there ever be
Nor would any tears be falling

If there were no trials or tribulations
No deception and no pain
Where would life's lessons lie
Or the incentive to maintain

February 12, 2010 - Walking On A Wire

Walking On A Wire

I go through each day with you
Like I am walking on a wire
Myself I put aside
To meet what you require

These eggshells you have in front of me
Strewn about on this path
I walk around and attempt not to crush
As I carefully avoid your wrath

You have placed a muzzle on my mind
And I am afraid to speak what is there
So I never say what I really mean
And I know that you don't care

This Mona Lisa smile here on my face
I put there to appear serene
When inside I feel that I am losing it
Because I can't say or show to you
How I really feel or what I mean

February 11, 2010 - Turn Back Time

Turn Back Time

Yesterday you were but a dream I had
Tomorrow you came true
Today I have to find a way
Tomorrow to undo

Such a love I knew we would be
What a great love we were
Today I have to find a way to change it all
And make tomorrow not occur

If I could go back into my yesterday
And not find my way to you
Then tomorrow would not be at all
And I would not love you

February 10, 2010 - Fly


You have wings and you can fly
Why stay on the ground
Held and chained and kept down
By invisible bounds

These chains of yours are in your mind
They keep you from your peace
Cut loose and fly away
Your heart you must release

You must feel the air brush your wings
The breeze upon your face
Your wings are not broken dear
They have just been held in place

February 09, 2010 - Only A Melody

Only A Melody

Your heart she plays like her harp
It is her instrument it's true
She plucks your strings
To hear you sing
Each time she comes to you

A beautiful tune emanates from you
But it's only a melody
You don't know that you sing alone
And there is no harmony

Take your heart away from her
No more music let her make
Let one who loves you
Play your heart
So that it won't break

February 08, 2010 - Wordsmith


I am a Wordsmith new at my trade
I learn as I go along each day
My direction is true as is my aim
My end is unknown but I know The Way

I have questions that to some may seem odd
And theories I have to explain
Beliefs so strong that I can’t keep them inside
And yes, I write about pain

I  feel the need to tell what I am of
And in what I do believe
To find others who feel the same
Is what I aim to achieve

I think about everything that I see and hear
I feel everything all around me
If I don’t share all of this in someway
All of this thinking and feeling will drown me

February 07, 2010 - What Lies Underneath


What Lies Underneath

I hear you laugh at almost everything
I believe I've rarely ever seen you mad
You are such a joy to be around
Because you are hardly ever sad

I watch your face and look into your eyes
And I see sadness there
A look of vast experience
From a life that's not been fair

Sometimes,  I see you talk to yourself
Very quiet, very low
And I wonder what is on your mind
What are you trying not to show

I realize that constant laugh
And the smile there on your face
Is not reflected in those eyes of yours
And it seems so out of place

What lies underneath that mask of happiness
That I always see you wear
And how deep do the secrets, and the pain therein lie
That you alone do bear

February 06, 2010 - In So Much of You

In So Much of You

I've come here to explore
This menage you call your island
A place of refuge for your soul
And where your spirit is enlivened

Such an air of familiarity
I feel here in this place
Things unseen, as of yet, but known
Like the wind upon my face

I drift along in wonderment
To see what I can find
And what I discover here amazes me
So like the back of my mind

There are memories that I find here
Of which I thought were all my own
Feelings unshared with anyone
But myself when all alone

We all view ourselves as like no other
And we are all unique, this is true
But I have found
That we are not so very different
As I see myself, in so much of you

February 05, 2010 - Key To My Heart

Key To My Heart

I place the key to my heart
In the palm of your strong hand
With an innocent trust
To use at your wish and command

I trust that you will enter with care
As if my heart were your own
Treasuring the contents
And exploring the unknown

I am counting on you to handle with care
Everything fragile you find
Leave nothing broken when you close the door
Just leave your heart behind

February 04, 2010 - The Thief

The Thief

Confusion running rampant in your soul
Don't know where you want to be
Who you are or what you need
Or in what you believe

You are fighting hard not to forsake
What's been instilled in you
Branded deep in your heart
It is a part of you

Needful things they gather round
Grasping for your soul
Don't give in, don't give up
Keep your self-control

Darkness comes with a light
A light that is untrue
Don't turn your head or close your eyes
It steals the light from you

February 03, 2010 - Flying To Escape

Flying To Escape

Flying to escape what is my destiny
I have darted and dashed about
Stopping short of what I am meant to do
Frozen by my doubts

Growing stronger with each crack
Each time life dealt a blow
Still I ran and hid from destiny
Myself I didn't know

Living, learning growing wiser
Experience ingrained upon my heart
Refusing to live by what I learned
Came untied and fell apart

Torn and bruised and battle scarred
I finally saw the light
Who I am and what I'm meant to do
Is stand up tall and fight

February 02, 2010 - Lose Me

Lose Me

You admire this strength I have inside
The strength you see in me
How I stand my ground and not give in
But do you understand how this came to be

Do you have any idea what I have put myself through
To become the woman I am today
The scars I have upon my heart
Is how I got this way

My self-respect is something that I hold dear
I keep it close to my heart
The standards and values I have set for myself
Are such, that from them I cannot part

I've been through a lot of heartache
To become the me that I'm supposed to be
If I ever forget what I have learned
I stand to lose me

February 01, 2010 - Home


Mirror, Mirror upon my wall
What is this far off land I see
When I look into your lovely glass
It calls out my name and beckons me

Is this my home from another place and time
That I yearn for in my heart of hearts
Bringing memories back to me
From which I cannot part

I think I will step inside you for just a bit
And travel back in time
To see if this place I think is home
Is only in my mind
