I want to drink the air
Live in the sunset
taste the water
emerge from it new
washed clean from all I’ve seen..
layer after layer I shed my skin
Looking for the freedom of where to begin
Only to find the same eyes pulling me back again..
What does it matter that I shed the outside gone-
my insides whirl round and round owning me strong..
I could choose to give in to all of my sins
Or reach out my hand to the one I know so well –
The best of me..
There you are standing tall
I exist because you chose to fall
Thank you for loving me through it all
our melody hit every note
fine tuning its’ way for the perfect pitch that became you & I..
you sing through me
Vibrating my heart strings
until they hum a love so sweet
I hear it in my heartbeat
traipsing through my veins
wafting throughout my being
humming your way to my heart until it became our home
our love is like a soldier
Loyal to us – it rights all wrongs
I learned a love song
my heart will never be empty
for your melody always plays softly throughout me..
It mattered not..
the essence of you and i weaved a soul of love unknown..
the joy boundless
sealing us tight..
It won’t matter what is written or the
words spoken out loud but never given..
we lived it freely
We lived it real
until time stood still..
I couldn’t stay, I can’t pretend
My heart went silent..
I lost my way when I couldn’t feel the beating of my mainstay..
So now I lay me down to sleep
for my soul needs yours in order to keep..
I hope they know
I pray they see
Though life’s unfair
we’ll find our way in every sphere..
Breath upon my bones
Your heart is my home
I don’t walk alone..
we meld into each other
forming a love with a shape of its’ own..
like the beauty created by the drippings of candle wax..
each time it’s lit up, we set the sky on fire
absorbed into a sphere of our own..
I reopen you time and again..
caught up in our space i come undone
Blinded as if I’m touched by the sun..
colors so vibrant – woven tightly as one
Like a rainbow that has only just begun..
You color my heart
You warm my soul
feeling every shade you’ve splashed from the start
my heart is on fire
my soul is aflame
Forever and ever it will paint your name..
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..
