We Need to Dance

Stephen Kaufman : March 30, 2015 3:49 pm : SL Kaufman

we-need-to-danceWe don’t need to perfect it
We don’t need to define it
We don’t need to project it
We don’t need to confine it

But when the music plays

WE NEED TO DANCE

STANDING STILL

Stephen Kaufman : March 23, 2015 4:22 pm : SL Kaufman

ClarityHad been standing still
For too long
And couldn’t see tomorrow
Until now

As a calmness surrounds me
In a world of turmoil
For the sky is not falling
Despite its rumblings

On the water

on-the-waterOn the water at dusk
Marking paths often taken
With Paradise surrounding us
And beckoning us to its shores

A perfect relationship
Requires two imperfect people
To compliment each other
Perfectly

I Can’t Explain it

From “Into my Life Unexpected…Finding Love”

I can’t explain it
I won’t even try
But we found each other
And everything has changed

Admired her from a distance
Not even imagining
She was looking at me
And waiting for the moment

MY BOYS

Stephen Kaufman : February 19, 2015 5:57 pm : SL Kaufman

father-and-sons“My two sons visited me over the long President’s Day holiday.

I am left with mixed emotions and I wrote about it:

My boys have flown home
Leaving me with a sadness
Of times missed with them
In the aftermath of divorce

They are grown now
Each on their own journey
Yet clearly carrying
Traits from their father

In many ways still strangers
Words often chosen carefully
But seeds sown years ago
Are now admired with pride

Valentine’s Day

Stephen Kaufman : February 12, 2015 4:33 pm : SL Kaufman

1395973_3669953084938_677705149_n“Valentine’s Day” I  have often wondered why we have had the need to create a “special” day to celebrate love. My journey has given me the answer. As I thought about it this morning and realized how fortunate I am to have arrived at this place at this time, I composed this poem:

Love awakens me
Holds me while I sleep
Nourishes my days
And eases my soul

It renews my life
Encourages my dreams
Protects me from harm
And lightens my load

My laughs are heartier
My tears deeper
My touch gentler
My mind clearer

I don’t need this day
To understand its wonder
Embrace its beauty
Or gift its presence

But I’m glad it reminds me
Of the magic that is possible
When hearts connect
And roses bloom

Thoughts from the Book Signing

Stephen Kaufman : February 4, 2015 2:00 pm : SL Kaufman

Surrounded by friends
Celebrating the words
And I wrote for them
Thoughts from the heart

So that each of them knew
How special it was
That their journey and mine
Could share that moment

HUMBLED AND PROUD

I am so proud that we’ve got the web site up and running in conjunction with the publication of   “Into My Life Unexpected…Learning to Love Again”. Please enjoy my poetic tribute.

HUMBLED AND PROUD
THAT MY WORDS WERE FREED
TO FIND THEIR WAY
TO THE HEARTS OF OTHERS

KNOWING THAT THE JOURNEY
CAN NEVER FAIL
FOR IN THEIR REINCARNATION
I HAVE FOUND SUCCESS
