I DON’T KNOW WHY


MONARCH COCOON - CHANGING
By Bree Leto – Secretthoughtswithin And 
Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

I’m not sure why
I keep on changing
like I do 

I don’t know 
if it’s good or bad
I really wish I knew.

I fear with all these changes
taking place inside of me, 
others will only notice 
the outer side they see. 

I wish I understood 
what was meant to be,
what’s the point in changing 
if you don’t change with me. 
growing together

Take my hand, my love,

we can grow together. 
I will grow 
and you will grow, 
by my side  

FOREVER.

THE SHANGRI LA OF US

THE SHANGRI LA OF US - 2
By Charles Robert Lindholm

Life Is So Fast Paced
Anymore
And Time Seems So
Fleeting

With Us
Rushing Around
In Our Own
Little Whirlwinds

The Roses
Go Unsmelled
Along With The Coffee,
Too

We Are Always
Leashed Up
To Electronics
And The Whole
Wide World
Around Us

While The Important
And The Lovely
Are Left Unattended
And Not Admired

I Want To Stop
Our World
From Spinning
Around Us
In A Vortex

HOLDING YOU IN MY ARMS - 2
I Need To
Hold You
In My Arms

HOLDING YOU IN MY ARMS
And Look
Into Your Eyes

LOOKING INTO YOUR EYES
For You Are
My Anchor,
You Are My World
And All That
Really Matters
To Me

We Need To
Protect
The Shangri La
Of Us

So We Can
Grow Old
Together
And Still Be
In Love

YOU ARE MY SHANGRI LA

BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF – AND ME

By Keza / Spiritedsoul And Charles Robert Lindholm / The Reluctant Poet

Love Is Never Out Of Season,
It Goes With Spring And Summer
Autumn And Winter
It’s Perfect With Them All

But I Don’t Think
That Will Be True
For You And I

It Seems I Will
Only Cause You Heartache,
Even Though Your Inner Fire
Puts Millions Of Sparks
Into My Heart And Soul
It Hasn’t Ignited
A Raging Fire
Or An Endless Love

Deep In My Heart I Know
That I’m Just Hurting You So
If It’s Time You Think I Need
I’ll Tell You, I Cannot Nourish Love’s Seed

I Will Never Blossom
Into A Soulmate
Or The Forever Lover
You Long For

I Cannot Promise You
The Rest Of My Life
It Just Isn’t Right
When I Don’t Feel
As You Do

When I Gently Push You Away
I See The Sadness In Your Eyes,
It Only Makes You Want To Stay 
But, When It Comes To You And I,

You Really Must Be Honest
With Yourself – And Me 

I Know Cupid’s Arrow Has Hit Your Heart
And Letting Go Is Hard To Do, But
I Think It’s Best If We Just Part
So You Can Find Your One And Only
