The heart breaks just a little.. the love runs deeper still
certain this chasm cannot be real..
I think I love you better now than all the years before..
Tattooed on my heart is
Intense, wonderful you..
every twist, every turn
I know you inside out..
I’ll trade my heart in exchange for yours- building each time –
a fresh new start..
my sweet imagination is what I choose
It somehow chases away the blues..
everything seems worse in black & white –
I’m gonna pick up the pieces and color them in
and when things go wrong – I’ll color again..
We’ll build and we’ll fall
but we will stand tall
This lego heart refuses to give in to it all..
Create with me – build with me a colorful home
and the pieces of our lego heart will have strong bones..
The heart breaks just a little – our colors run deep
We’re as bright as the sun
And dark as the night..
we are beauty expressed in our lover’s delight
Piece by piece
Our heart will take flight..
to where we’ve been
To all we are
To all we aren’t
To where we’ll be
And all we’ll see..
For life keeps going
and we’ll keep growing
as each step holds us up through the badder and the worse; pushing us on to the better and the good..
Unsaid words sung in my heart
Remind me of our once upon another time when I made you mine..
Write me something beautiful was all I could say..
Because I was touched right from the start —
your markings are etched on my heart..
so let’s keep stepping on each stone that’s raised
never losing sight
even in the haze..
moving on toward that special goal where the love of two makes us whole..
it’s a simple word
yielding so much power..
It renders us fragile..
first casualty of any relationship..
It’s a slippery slope..
so many meanings to each person..
Who defines what it is..
We all know what “trust” is supposed to mean..
But life gives it our own meaning –
shaping and forming us in ways not expected..
trust takes on a life of its’ own filling in the gaps and holes of our soul
So that we might feel whole..
We smile and carry on
talking ever so loudly with nothing to say
hoping it covers what’s hidden inside..
tethered and beaten
exhausted and worn
no more taping up all the torn
Still I will love
Still I will trust
For I am not a victim of all that life thrusts..
I’ll throw you my rope
there you’ll find hope
as we twist and turn on this slippery slope..
open your heart
Let me inside
we will be strong
for there’s nothing to hide..
Empty me whole
You will find me full
Brimming over with love..
Holding it tight—I am not afraid
I know who you are when I’m not looking
Who I am when I’m with you reveals everything within and then some..
Take me there..
to that land of dreams wishes and hopes..
I want to know everything
leave nothing out..
let’s walk to this place where everything else is erased
Show me where life and love intersect
The place where our hearts connect..
such sadness has invaded my soul..
I cannot see through it
I’m no longer whole
I am numb
my mind has come undone..
I no longer feel
it’s all so unreal..
someone wake me
Shake me from this grief that has caused me to lose myself..
feet moving, arms hugging,
eyes wearily watching life that somehow keeps living..
sounds I don’t recognize escaping my mouth..
It is in the real – the now
So afraid of forgetting you
and somehow so afraid I’ll never be able to let you go..
Words we spoke
Plans we made..
a bonding of our hearts
words filling me with hope..
I’ll continue to dream
I’ll never let them die
I’ll release them to the sky..
I can love you and still say goodbye..
snapshots of my heart..
a growing collage of us created from the start..
we grew like a pixel – multiplying over and over until the image of our love covered us whole..
Reel by reel
You play me..
unaware how you slay me..
3D explosions in my heart right from the start..
Can’t escape the moonlight of your eyes
Your reflection is everywhere
You burn bright within
I’ll give in
I’ll step out of the darkness and let you light the way..
we may be amateurs at this
but the impression you left on my heart snapshot me back to life
we have created quite a collection of where we’ve been and what’s to be..
I’m so glad to be part of this story..
You take no fool
Yet somehow you rule..
You bring me to my knees..
so stealth with a wealth of harm in your outstretched arm..
ever so quietly
you unleash your wrath of rage devouring me up
until I can no longer rattle free this cage..
Blanketed by a stranger that has taken over my insides
as if you own me..
I won’t stay down
I’m up again
the battle is on
I won’t give in to the bile running through my skin..
You can touch me but you’ll never take my soul, my heart or my thoughts..
I’ll fight and fight
I won’t finish till I win it..
For I belong
Hope lives on
