Love is

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Love is so big
but sometimes can be small
Love is laughter
with a smile
Love is happy
but sometimes sad
Love is strange
in many ways
but most of all
Love is great


someone to understand

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I cry
I pray
and I weep
sometimes the mountains
seem to steep
the rivers seem to wide
to make it to the other side
unless someone would lend a hand
someone to understand
no one to hear my hear cry
no one to wipe my teardrops dry
nor to touch my out streched hand
no one to try to understand


Love Was Just a Word

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Love was just a word
until you came to me
then you taught me how
Love was ment to be
it only has four letters
but "oh" what thoese
letters mean to a girl
of only eighteen
you took my heart in
then you set it free
"oh" if only you Loved me
the way that I Love you


God is everywhere

by

Kathleen Goodwin

If your lonely
with no one to talk to
rememeber..
God is everywhere
he sees you when
your down and blue
and he knows just what to do
I know all of this
is hard to understand
but if you would just
take hold of his hand
he will see you though


memories

by

Kathleen Goodwin

here I sit in this chair
in this old house
that we once shared
thinking about the memories
that once was there
where there was laughter
in the air,and joy in our hearts
when there was nothing
to keep us apart


Good-bye my sweet Love

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I'm sorry my sweet love
but I had to go away
let me see no sorrow nor pain
nor tears to wipe away
you know that I love you
your as sweet as a dove
and i'm glad that God
sent you from up above
but the time has come
for me to move on
"good-bye my sweet love"


please don't cry

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I see the pain
in your eyes
the smile you ware
is in diguise
"please don't cry"
I hear the hurt
in your voice
as you try to
make the right choice
"please don't cry"
If tears could talk
mine would talk to you
to let you know
I still love you
"please don't cry"


can you help me lord

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I can't find the words to pray
I know these feelings can't stay
can you help me Lord?
can you hear me Lord?
I need you to reach out
thats no dought
I need you to understand
I feel a million miles from land
I'm drifting away
I feel so gray
can you help me Lord?
I need to stay


Mommy's Heaven Baby

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Where ever you are
where ever you may be
you will always live inside of me
I never got to hold,kiss or hug you
to touch your hair or look into your eyes
I never got to hear you cry
but to mommy you will always be alive
I have an empty space in my heart
when I need to fill that space
I look towards heaven
because there I know you are
there I know we will meet someday
I LOVE YOU
you are mommy's heaven baby


Love is Like a Rose Bud

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Love is like a rose bud
it becomes more bigger
each and every day
but when it's time to die
it dies slowly in every way
like petels on that rose


Early Morning

by

Kathleen Goodwin

The roosters crowing
The stream flowing
The small birds twitter
The due that looks like glitter
on this early morning


lost love

by

Kathleen Goodwin

the skys are gray
theres no more play,
the hopes are gone
all love has withdrawn,
the time has come near
with not even a tear,
as I turn to walk away
tomorrow is a brand new day...


Fly Away With Me

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Fly away with me
up so high
where we cannot be seen
by thoese passing by
come fly with me
and we will go
to a place to where
only we know
retreat with me
to that special place
where i can only see your face
come fly with me
where only we can hold the key
just you and I
alone we must be


One Day At A Time

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Sometimes people comes ito our lives
and you know they were meant to be there...
to serve some purpose
maybe to teach us a lesson
of what everyday life holds
maybe to help us figure out who we are
or who we want to be
you never know who these people are
but you know from that very momet
they will affect your life in some special way
sometimes things happen to us
that may seem unfair
but everything happens for a reason
life is nerver fair
God gives us these trails
to help us learn
without them life would be pointless and dull
appreaiate every moment
and take it as it comes
for you may never have the chance
to enjoy what life beholds
if someone loves you love them back
not because they love you but...
because they are teaching you to love
and open your heart to the little things
that make everyday count
if someone hurts,betrays you
or breaks your heart
forgive them for they have helped
you learn about trust and who
you open your heart to
let that special person in
to share your thoughts,hopes and dreams
for that special person
may also need a friend
hold your head up high
tell yourself your great
beleive in yourself
because if you dont no one else will
create your life and live it
one day at a time


The Pain Within

by

Kathleen Goodwin

She ran into the darkness
with no where to hide
her life is falling apart
as she feels crumbled inside
she looked into the mirror
to ask her self why
but all she could do
was to scream and cry
no love for her self
no plain for her life
she crawled into a corner
to silently hide
within the darkness
a dim light glowed
it begin to approach her
but her tears still flowed
she can run from her self
but her self she can't hide
the trapped useless feeling
will be her trail inside
she is hurt from her soul
and her hearts not the same
all the tears from crying
will not heal her pain
her world had turned a corner
she felt she could not go on
until a calling from the angels
proved that she was wrong
now her darkness has turned to light
no longer did she need to hide
her life now begins to build itself
and she starts to grow inside
it seems what she was searching for
was there from the start
all she had to do
was to look within her heart

A Broken Heart And A Empty Home

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Sitting here in this house remembering
the times we've had listening for her
laughter only to hear my teardrops fall
this house is as empty as my heart
my life now has fallen apart
I remember the touch of her face the way
she held my hand when she said grace
I remember her sweet smile "oh God"
is this just a trail? my love for her
will go that extra mile all these years
of feeling alone now I'm really on my own
alone with a broken heart and a empty home
I spent all my time helping others you see
and now this is how it ends for me they
came and took my baby away and now my
husband has left home I cry alone,
pray alone and I walk alone God please
don't let me die alone for all I have
left is this broken heart and a empty home

Why Must You Make Me Cry

by

Kathleen Goodwin

dedicated to Starlisha Stubbs

Daddy why don't you love me
why don't you seem to care
are you not proud of me any more
why can't we be like before
daddy why did you break my heart
why did we ever have to part
was I not good enough for you
daddy why am I feeling so blue
why haven't you come to see me
why are you so hard to find
daddy it's been fifteen years
why can't you see that I need you
I still love you
daddy why must you make me cry

Another Day

by

Kathleen Goodwin

this poem is dedicated to my daughter starlisha stubbs

Tomorrow is just another day
nothing to do but sit here
counting all the reasons why
your not here with me today
tonights just another
sleepless night
crying on my pillow
praying you will be home soon
why oh why
does it have to be this way
please not another day

Winter Days

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Silver crystaled dewy mornings
golden leaves upon the trees
some drifting down
to settle gently upon the ground
no more sunshine to warm the days
only a bright light to give no haze
cold bitter winds upon my face
beautiful white blankets all over the place
the moon cast a shadow on the ground
shimering snow flakes swirling all around
not making a sound

Missing You

by

Kathleen Goodwin

Sitting on my bed
with non stop thoughts of you
haunting my head
my heart ackes
as if it beleives
you will ease the pain
your love is all I want to gain
but for right now
theres nothing I can do
so I'll just sit here missing you

count your blessings

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I once wept because i had no shoes
until i met a man that had no feet
my children have cried because
they had no bread
until they seen some that had
no food at all
to many people miss the silver lining
because they are expecting gold
appreciate what you have in life
for you could have nothing at all

Heartbreak Blues

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I have one thang to tell you
I have the heartbreak blues
it only brings tears to my eyes
when I think of you
I can't seem to sleep at night
for your not there to hold me tight
I really miss thoes days
of all your compassionate ways
why did you have to go
everyday I say it isn't so
but now that your gone
all I do is sit here confussed
with the heartbreak blues

Why I Love You

by

Kathleen Goodwin

I love you because
of your smile your laugh
and the way you say my name
I love the way you hold me in your arms
I love you for all your special charms
I love you for what's in your heart
that special kind of love
that no one can ever part
I love the way you look into my eyes
the way you make thoese little sighs
I love all the special things that you do
I love you for just being you

An angel is what I would be

by

Kathleen Goodwin

If I had a choice
an angel is what I would be
cause I would be there
by your side don't you see
I would always be right there
to wrap my wings around you
only you would know I was there
for I would never make a sound
I could see ahead to help direct your path
I would always be there for you
you would never have to ask
I would be there protecting you
from all harm for nothing would
ever be too hard
for if I had a choice
an angel is what I would be
because I love you don't you see.

My Secret In Silence

by

Kathleen Goodwin

You came into my life
and my words stood still
I could'nt express in words
of how you made me feel
I wanted to say I love you
or maybe that I cared
but only in silence I stood
so in silence I will love you
in silence I will care
this secret I keep in my heart
is my secret in silence
