Combining Words With Pictures

I’ve been writing a long time, but sometimes adding words to a picture can say so much more…


My Heart

Soul mate

I think that real love lasts forever, that’s where I got this idea. Ken


Sleep Softly My Love

Lay your head down my love,

I’ll hold you as you drift away,

Hold you in my arms,

Hold you in my heart,

Hold you as I always have,

I’ll hold you forever,

Even after you’re gone,

I’ll hold you always,

With my heart and soul,

Until I see you again,

And hold you once more,

Hold you and never let go.


Ken Barr

We all might have only one soul mate, so if you find them, hold on forever….

If you are lucky enough to find your soul mate, hold on forever...

If you are lucky enough to find your soul mate, hold on forever…

Love, All That Matters…

If you love someone, accept them as they are. If you need to change them, it’s not really love after all.

Missing You

Missing you more than usual,

I always do, but today it,

Is such a huge gap in my life,

An empty place I can’t hide from,

A loneliness that gets so strong,

I don’t know why I’m feeling it,

More today than any other,

Some things I’ll never understand.

Love Me Until The Day I Die

Sometimes I can’t find the right words,

To really tell you how I feel,

To convey all the emotions,

That make me the person I am.


I want so much for you to know,

How I really feel about you,

How much you truly mean to me,

All that you bring into my world.


With each conversation it seems,

Like I have known you all my life,

With each embrace I know that I,

Want you in the rest of my life.


What I would ask is from the heart,

And to me it’s everything,

All I can hope is that you will,

Love me until the day I die.


Be with me always.

I have always been intrigued my Knights of Medieval Times, I wrote this some time ago, and just tweaked it, hope you like it. Ken

A Knight Before Battle

Heading for the battlefield knowing,

That the odds against a victory,

Are so great that they are staggering,

I won’t ever leave this battlefield,

Here is where my last battle is fought.


As I head toward the enemy,

All that I can think about is you,

And the life we have had together,

I have no fear now only sadness,

Because today we part forever.


This I do for my king and country,

As I have done before, what I must,

As I do my duty for honor,

I can see that there is no honor,

Leaving you for a fools errand.


But turning back is not an option,

The dogs of war have just been unleashed,

And I charge headlong into the fray,

Steel upon steel, and steel upon flesh,

Countless numbers of the enemy.


The battle wears on, the enemy,

Overwhelm us with their sheer numbers,

Still fighting on, and then I feel it,

I can feel the sword piercing my chest,

But I feel no pain except for you.


I know my dying will break your heart,

And as I lay here, life leaving me,

All feelings are replaced with sadness,

Sadness that I won’t see you again,

Your beautiful face is my last thought.

New Work, “Moved”

Moved, by the woman that you are,
By the love that you have shown me,
By the way that my heart races,
When I hold you close, next to me.

Moved with feelings and emotions,
I thought I had lost long ago.

Holding you is so intimate,
I never knew it could be so,
A closeness that we both can feel,
Like nothing that we have felt before.

Moved, there are no words to describe,
The feelings that are in my heart.

Holding you softly in the night,
Watching you sleep, hearing you breathe,
I know this is where I should be,
Moved, so lucky that I found you.
