Called to Love

On this day, we celebrate the wonderful thing called love

To start, I want to thank the good Lord above

For all the adoration & compassion He gives each day

And for how He blesses me each day more than I can say

This day isn't just for lovers, but for all who are bonded together

For those who don't just share in…

Ms. Hyde

There is a song by Halestorm called Mz. Hyde and I found that I could identify with it a bit. Living with Bi-Polar disorder, well sometimes I am Ms. Hyde and sometimes I’m Dr. Jekyll, just depends on the day, sometimes the moment. And, one really never knows in advance which girl you will be dealing with, including myself. ;) Dealing with Schizophrenia…

The World of Technology

Oh what a wondrous thing it is, this thing we call technology

From advancements in science to keeping us in touch with those overseas

It has helped us as a race do so many great things, surely that's easy to see

Though I also believe that many have become too dependent on it, even me

As it is, I am online right now instead of…

I'm Ready For Spring

Spring may only be weeks away

Yet it feels like winter is here to stay

I’m trying to be happy about this snowy season

But I’m having difficulty finding even one reason


The cold air makes my skin so very dry

It’s become cracked & so painful that I want to cry

I got my snow on Christmas Day

Now I beg…

Love Shouldn't Be Bought, But Merely Given

Join me for a little pre-Valentine’s Day rant

Though before I begin, let me set the record straight

I’m not single, bitter, & jaded, though I once was

Happily taken am I, but my views on this day are ones I won’t recant


My view is and has always been this about love & devotion

We should show one another how…

Family Means Everything To Me

From parents, brothers & sisters, & nieces & nephews

To aunts & uncles, grandparents, cousins, and all the way through

Family is precious, each & every single member mean so much to me

No matter the distance or how close the relationship may or may not be


Not a single day goes by when I don’t think of my…

Music Tells My Story

When chaos surrounds my every moment

And I have been subjected to loss & torment

Thoughts & emotions flood my veins

There must be a way to express my anger, sorrow, & pain


That’s when I turn to a wondrous thing called music

It helps me tell my story, no matter whether I’m happy or heartsick

I can…

Along The Roads You Travel

I can’t believe how these last eleven years have flown

Looking at where once a small boy stood, I see just how much he’s grown

Once he took naps, liked to cuddle, & needed my help for everything

And as I look at him as he is now, I wonder what the future will bring


I try not to worry & just place it all in God’s…

A Friendship Poem

They say that good friends are hard to find

But I believe that’s only true if you don’t use your mind

I made some mistakes over the years on whom I chose to trust

I now know that mutual respect, loyalty, & communication are all a must


Common interests & chemistry also play a part 

In fact, that’s where…

For As Long As I Live, I Will Always Love You

I was ready to give up on finding the one for me

So very ready to put my heart under lock & key

I wanted to fall in love & see it last the test of time

But my track record suggested I’d never know that feeling so sublime


Over the years, my heart had been shattered too many times to recall

And yet after each…

You Set Me Free

For years, I wandered through the ashes of my past

Dwelling on pain, guilt, & heartaches that I thought would forever last

“Will I ever be able to move on, from my yesterdays be set free?”

I cried out to anyone who was willing to hear me


Scattered memories lingered deep within my mind

I just couldn’t seem to find…

God, Lead The Way Each Day

As the cold clings to my bones

Refusing to let its hold on me go

The sun shines, radiating off me a golden glow

Renewing within me a fierce hope


I have faced worse than this

And always have made it through

I know that there is joy in the days ahead

Realizing this, I no longer face this day with…

An Insomniac's Tale

As the last light of the day fades away

I find my mind trying to lead me astray

My body is weary and ready for rest

But my thoughts try to take me on a most lengthy quest


Thus is the way it goes most every night

I fight dragons and demons with all my might

Just to try and get a little sleep

Wishing for…

Your Light Within Me

On this the day of rest

Our love for You is put to the test

Will we rise ready to praise your name?

Or will sleeping in and ignoring You be our game?


Yes, it is true that every single day we should adore You

Not just on the Sabbath should we sing your praises, this is so true

But, it is on this day when we’re…

Letting Go

On the defensive, you retreat

Trying to shield yourself from harm

So high and thick is the wall you have built

Refusing to allow anyone to gain entrance

Yet you're more vulnerable than ever

You hold a weapon to defend yourself

A sword…

You Are My Strength

Beaten down once again for my mental crimes

I lie on the ground shaking, in tears

This has happened to me one too many times

Being brought low by my own insecurities, doubts, & fears


I have been my worst enemy for years

Allowing my own mind to wage battles against me

I do more to harm myself than any of my…

God Is In Control

One hand upon the steering wheel

The other is resting upon the door frame

My GPS is telling me where to go

I feel like I’m in total control


The sun is shining upon me

It’s warming my skin

Today is one of those days

That I could make anything happen


To make this day even better

There needs…

Winter Can Be Kind Of Swell

Through the wind and the freezing rain

It becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the pain

My knees are crying out to me

It would be best for us to rest, can you not see?


Tis the season when Bronchitis stalks me

I beg with all my might for it to flee

But like a stubborn child unwilling to submit

It decides it’s…

'The King'

copyright 2013 by Richard Reiley

The King was in his counting house

Waltzing with his money

Sad but determined to get more

He didn't know the answer

To the question in his head but

What else were those dancing lessons for?

The Queen was with her chambermaids

Who were tending…

In Faith Divided, But In Love United

My heart tells me this

That God truly exists

His love is real, powerful, & everlasting

Because of what He’s done, I shall not feel death’s sting


But there’s something I must confess

Understand this, it doesn’t make me love Him less

God wasn’t fabricated

But religion itself was indeed…
