I keep traveling back
To another day
Many years ago
When I walked away
I had a good life
A job that I enjoyed
Yet my smile was scarce
My happiness void
My Mother seen I was unhappy
That I needed to get out and date
But I'm not the type of guy
To find love second rate
I tried the bar scene
But it wasn't for me
I didn't want a drunk
Or a criminal history
So I posted online
As my Mother had before
She said, "give it a shot"
As I opened a new door
I thought it was a joke
Dating online
Nothing to take serious
Until the stars seemed to align
I logged into the site
With a message or two waiting
One was just the usual
The other one more relating
I read the message
Intrigued at the thought
Of dating a Soldier
I thought I'd give it a shot
More and more messages
Between her and I
Every day on my way to work
I never wanted to say "goodbye"
Then the day came
I was sitting in a Kroger parking space
Des sang to her daughter
In her voice such grace
That moment I felt
My heart skip a beat
Her beautiful voice
I hoped I would soon meet
Later that night
I made my choice
I put in for vacation
I had to meet that beautiful voice
She was coming soon
Only six hours away
She asked if I'd help move
I never thought I'd stay
We got her unpacked
Then started to talk
I didn't know it yet
But I'd never want to walk
It wasn't long
Before I was in love
With a beautiful Soldier
Seemingly sent from above
I never thought
I'd make it there
Genuinely happy
With not a care
Then I met
The beautiful little girl
Who soon called me Daddy
Trin will always me my world
This was six year ago
Yet the feelings are still true
Eight hundred miles apart
Yet my heart stays with you
I meant every word
Til death do us part
With every breath that I breath
I'll love you with all my heart...

"Night Sky"

"Night Sky"
J. Rodgers

Looking up
The moon so bright
Not a star in the sky
As I follow the moonlight

What's the chances
You see it too
That I'm looking at the moonlight
The same time as you

It would seem like we're close
Instead of miles apart
800 miles between us
Yet we still beat as one heart

The love between us
Has remained true
I felt it when you kissed me
There's still nobody but you

Our love will continue
Until our dying day

We can't hide from fate
Our love is here to stay

So just give in
Let me hold you tight
A kiss on your lips
And say goodnight...

"Past is Present"

"Past is Present"

I'm driving forward
into the past
the present behind me
wishing the past was my last

ive still got that feeling
of butterflies when we talk
my love has only grown
next to you i want to forever walk

but it cannot be
for my past mistakes
the price i pay
for the hearts i break

I've hurt you in ways
that cannot be undone
a victim of myself
and a love on the run

the life i lost
when you walked away
showed me my mistakes
why nobody stays

but with you its different
my love is true
there's nobody in this world
that could compare to you

so now what do i do
when I'm sitting in the presence of the past
wishing every day
that you would have been my last

i want to hold you
kiss away your tears
love you like i couldn't
alleviate you fears

but this is just a poem
words written on a page
its not going to bring you back
i should have acted my age

its not about love
that much we've got
but the trust i broke
the chance would take a lot

Im not gonna beg you
or ask you to stay
come thursday afternoon
ill be on my way

im heading back home
but id much rather stay
a baby and school
i know theres no way

we dont have to be together
its just nice to see your face
but its so hard not to kiss you
i feel our love misplaced...

the crimes i had committed
i was guilty as sin
a scared little boy
hiding from demons within

i never meant to hurt you
i'm sorry for every tear
my love for you was true
it was me living in fear

you'll always be my love
ill always hold you dear
ill spend my life wishing
i could have kept you near

My love has grown
over time and space
afraid to talk to you
or see your beautiful face

I have a new fear now
that's weighing me down
I'm afraid ill never stop loving you
never stop wanting you around

i'm sorry for the hurt
the pain you felt
i still feel it today
from the pain i dealt

I'm lying in a hotel
after an amazing day
afraid of seeing you again
afraid of what you may say

was it all a mistake
the time we spent
i shudder at the thought
and try to repent
you and trin
hold my heart
with every beat
it pains me to be apart

Maybe I shouldn't have came
made it easier on all
cause when i seen your face
i instantly felt the fall

i'm still madly in love
and i can't help but say
i long to wake up next to you
for the rest of my days

you told me tonight
love never dies
if you ever find yourself single
just look me in the eyes

you'll see the man
that I've become
because the person i used to be
was slowly coming undone

until that time
I'm always here
a victim of my love
no longer living in fear

so keep my heart
and hold it near
think of my love
anytime you feel a tear...
