It’s been a long timeSince I really looked at youSince I search so deep insideTo find the you that’s true It’s been a long timeSince the thought crossed my mindThat things would work out for usAnd you’d be by my side And it’s been a long timeSince I admitted just how I feelSince I really […]
The time has come for you to leave.Is this really the end?If there were anything I could do,Oh, the rules I’d be willing to bend! I don’t want to lose you now.You don’t realize what you mean to me.My feelings for you are so much strongerThan I ever dreamed they could be. We wasted so […]
[Haiku] Bright smiles came with fall.Beaming eyes with flying kites.Winter came too soon.
Goat Manners Originally uploaded by stephhwilliams Our little one, Seth, bit me accidentally while chewing on the sleeve of my shirt. I was sitting in the grass, trying to "teach him some manners" — like not jumping on people or chewing on their clothes. See what it got me? It felt like a pinch but […]
[Cameo] Time passedAs I sat lookingThrough the sharp, broken glass of whatAt one timeWas a window, but now shatteredFrom the conviction of loveThen Lost.
[Iambic Tetrameter] Real friendship does not come each dayIt takes work and dedicationTo ignore what others might sayAnd survive with consolation When people overlook the flawsThey enshrine the strength to stay friendsI’m strong even when lost without a causeFrom the helping hand your heart lends I pray that you do know by nowI’ll be there […]
Author’s note, particularly for my non-tweeting readers: The Little Rock Twitter Community, (a.k.a. @LRTweetup) (a.k.a. people who somehow get away with tweeting from work all day and then regularly get together in the same room to tweet their conversations) is celebrating its first birthday in May with the #LRTweeties (think: Oscars but with birds and […]
I saw your face in the crowd,And began my journey to you.The sounds of joy filled the room.And then I found you,Or more you found me.We hardly spoke as we grasped for open space–Or did we speak at all? The blur clears in flashesOf our last night together.As we rushed to find some silence,Occasionally we […]
I talk to my neighbor friend Judy (Ju-Ju-Judy, as Bryan calls her, in a throwback to Andy Griffith) quite regularly about what to do with all the eggs we get from the chickens now. I usually give her a dozen or so and we still never run out. Anyway, she gave me this recipe, from […]

I never wanted it to come to this.I guess I have no other choice.And when I say goodbye to you,I’ll hide the pain that’s in my voice. I tried for so longTo just hold on to you.Even though I knew you weren’t mine,I did everything I could possibly do. I wanted to know everything about […]
The room grew dark and coldYour face was a blur, unseenThe change was predicted, unwantedMy senses undeniable, so keen Whatever had happened, it didThere was nothing more to be saidNo matter how hard we foughtThose feelings were lost, they were dead I searched your eyes for an answerNo longer did they sparkle or beamWhat I […]
Lil’ Chicky’s Face again Originally uploaded by stephhwilliams Day 3 of antibiotics. May be a lost cause.Steph Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry
Some people believeHappiness is where you find it.What you want makes you content,And your life’s candle is always lit. If you live in the present,Then happiness exists all around.It is then your duty to keep it alive,To make it forever bound. If you live for the future,Live it day by day.Strive for all your dreamsNo […]
I remember the first time we spoke.You stood behind me and whispered in my ear.Waiting to see if anyone was looking,You ran your fingers through my hair. We became friends.There was nothing more.Still, I longed to discoverJust what forever is for. But then your best friend came along.Everything changed so fast.I didn’t really know what […]
