She Walks by Kevin Legge

She walks through the paths of my mind,
Graceful and lovely she beckons to me,
Emerald eyes, so soft and so kind,
Soothing beauty is what I see.
She reaches and kisses me on the cheek,
She smiles and the world goes away,
She is neither timid nor meek,
Bright is her laughter, just like the day.
She is my hope, my faith, and my dear,
She holds my heart in her hand,
Her joyous laughter banishes fear,
Rippling waves cross the land.


Be True Little One by Kevin Legge

To sit and rock,
With racing mind,
How to unlock,
How to find.
What is the key,
To open his soul,
What would we see,
What is his goal.
He wants one thing,
In his life,
The truth to ring,
The end of strife.
To only belong,
To only fit in,
It is not wrong,
It is no sin.
Lift up his head,
And comfort him,
Ease his dread,
The sharpness, dim.
Tell him no lie,
Tell him with love,
Shuddering sigh,
From up, Above.
Be true to your life,
Be what you desire,
Sharp is the knife,
Hot is the fire.
You are just right,
There is no wrong,
All is light,
All is song.

For A Special Person by Kevin Legge

I see the child sitting there,
Alone and friendless, sad,
Trapped within a racing mind,
Looking like he’s mad.
All the world thinks he is,
Hateful of the rest,
But I know he really is,
Among the very best.
He’s been so misunderstood,
So brave and so true,
To his inner environment,
The world has not a clue.
They say he’s anti-social,
They say he doesn’t care,
But I know he really is,
A soul that’s been stripped bare.
He loves all the people,
He wants to belong,
He sees the world around him,
He sees what is wrong.
He lives in his head,
He lives in his mind,
Why, he often asks himself,
Has he been left behind?
I say to you friend,
I say this is true,
Be what you want to be,
Perfectly you.

Jackie by Kevin Legge

Beautiful eyes of vivid green,
Soft, smooth hair of brown,
Oh such loveliness I’ve seen,
She should wear a crown.
I’d love to see her day and night,
I’d love to hold her hand,
I’d love to tell her all is right,
Writings in the sand.
When she smiles it seems to me,
She’s my heart’s delight,
She’s as lovely as she can be,
Soft and warm and bright.
I say so now, I say to you,
I whisper in your ear,
As the sky above is blue,
So, you are my dear.

Beautiful Woman by Kevin Legge

I see her as she dances,
Across the crystal lake,
I see her, beautiful woman,
So lovely that I ache.
She moves so gracefully,
Soft hair in earthen flow,
I see her, beautiful woman,
Someone I should know.
She saunters ever closer,
She gazes at my face,
I see her, beautiful woman,
Of each and every race.
She leans and looks at me,
She whispers in my ear,
I hear you, beautiful woman,
I hear you, oh my dear.

Simple Faith by Kevin Legge

A dew-kissed petal,
A sun-drenched field,
Gentle breeze whispering on my face,
I gaze at the azure sky,
Teeming with winged life,
I ask myself if this was merely
An accident of chance.
When I bite into a succulent peach,
The flavor bursting on my tongue,
I no longer ponder,
I no longer ask.
Who can believe other
Than that there is a
Master Architect?
For only God could create
Such joy and life.
I look at the platypus and I know
That God, indeed, has a great
Sense of humor.
I am content in my belief,
Which has gone beyond faith.
God believes in me,
Can I do any less?
