A glowing sun Cast across the fields A beam of light Rising over the mountainside Gentle winds Touch like a caress Walking in moonlight Stars shining bright Come share with me Wake each morning  To the beauty of nature As passion unfolds  ...

Do you see me

I look in the mirror Who do I see A stranger looks back at me Unanswered questions  Pop in my head Closing my eyes tight I repeat several times Who do you see Not today  I must be strong Don't break now Can't let the tears fall Don't let others down Take a deep breath Soon the mask is in place Feelings pushed back  A smile on my face Face the world Don't let on Hide the pain...

Holding on

Memories everywhere. I used to try and put them away or keep them safe, Not sharing. Such a part of me. Making me who I am. What my life has become. Doesn't mean I can't make new ones. I can share them all.   Never ending memories, I have not lost.   In a thousand different ways, never will I forget. Forever missed and always loved.  Memories I hold on    ...

Missing him

My arms long to hold him Fingertips to touch him tenderly With laughter and tears  I miss him so I will not let the tears fall He asked me not to cry Until he could hold me close And make me smile He is my madman Owns my heart and soul So I wait to be together To let the tears flow Some days like today I miss him more  ...

Let's dance

Hear the music playing Feel it in your soul Taken me in your arms  Look into my smile Hold me very close Sing to me the song The one that makes me smile Even when I trip at times Hold me that much tighter One dance or more The two-step or just to sway It really doesn't matter We let the music take us When you and I are dancing We hear it with our souls    ...

She waits

A full moon gave her light to the path she traveled. Shadows blended together to give her a warmth. Coming each night to wait gave her a comfort in the dark. As she looked at the moon. She knew the connection was true  With tears that sparkled like the stars above. She waited...  ...

Fight to hold on Fight to let go The lessons of life Are the hardest to know Your life is your own To do as you wish You can not turn your back No matter how hard you wish Sometimes guilt and anger Come your way Loss or betrayal Trust and longing Happen too They make you stronger Then you thought they would As you go down life's path And lessons come to you Remember you are...

Reach For Me

You sit and wonder Which way you're going to turn What you're doing However, will you cope Stop and take a deep breath Close your eyes and feel You're never alone I'm close In your beating heart Feel me deep within The strength starts to grow You're never ever alone Talk to me  We'll make the blues go           ...

A warrior

You have seen much With your eyes Many things have Touched your heart Dealt with pain Struggled with battles Demons and goblins Both in dreams and not Battle scars and wounds You hide them from view Your eyes tell a story Your heart can not lie You are a brave warrior A man of man coats The path you must take The journey is not over Weak you will not be Come share with me ...

No Longer Blue

In dreams I trust my own self be true As shadows on the wall in pantomime Whisper memories of my past Of long ago when I was weak Now that I have caught a falling star I see the glow and nearing path In dreams I trust my own self be true Good morning world I am no longer blue  Smiling as the day awakes In knowing my stronger self true As long as I believe in falling star ...
