I searched a small world to find you
trying to find where you were
In the last place I looked
And really no too far if you cared

I knew right away you were the one
And my search was done
A sad life left behind, abandoned
And farther than I could run

Close to death, I trusted in you
And you brought me back from the brink
I love; and will always love you
Maybe more than you may ever think

Stoic Poetry


This ocean swells
In heaves and sighs
Calm depths
I can’t deny

Storms above
And calm below
The tides will rise
Then come and go

Crashing on shores
And then retire
Until the day
When they expire

Alone in time
To ebb and flow
Exploring a life
That few will know

Stoic Poetry

Higher View

Lift my eyes to a higher view
Show me there is more
Than I ever knew

Open my ears that I might hear
Beyond the noise and din
The words that I hold so dear

Open my heart that I might feel
Against the pain of the world
To feel all the things that are real

Stoic Poetry  


If I only had your touch,
The world would be a better place,
Amongst anger and strife,
I would be guided by grace

If I had your patience,
When all around is falling,
I would bring down some peace,
If I only had your calling

But you are you, and I am not,
But I can still at least try,
To give the very best of me,
And not just bow my head and sigh

Stoic Poetry


Come softly in the night
Regrow those withered dreams
Resurrection in pure beauty
Too long buried
Within the tomb of the world

Speak lifetimes of love
For eternities in the moment
Arisen in flames
To relight the forge
The stone cold forge

Stoic Poetry
