In the shallow now
far from the top
The crash & burn don’t churn my insides much anymore..
I have let go
discovering so much more than I thought I could know..
braved it out
walked it through coming back to what i knew..
I love the past and its’ aftermath
I thrive in the now
I strive for tomorrow
as i borrow the hope for all we dream of..
The light of that hope shutters the beat of my heart
Fluttering my eyes and keeping me afloat..
there is no sinking
there is no fear
for only you
fill my atmosphere..
Thoughts and memories of days long gone..
nerves and excitement fill the air
while some walk around to shy too share
others are living, walking vibrant stories
waiting to unfold with friends of old..
Father Time we can’t rewind — yet the past is vibrant in their minds..
we see it dancing in their eyes – the joy spills over and for a time
past and present intertwine..
It’s good, it’s right
their hearts delight and they let themselves get lost to the magic of the night..
And the days of old become moments of gold..
Raining in my heart
A cleansing of the old..
Renewing of a start
A beacon of hope has begun exactly where I stand..
it’s not in the big things
Nor the mountain tops high..
It’s the steady and
The slow in the things we don’t know..
the moments in between
The quiet unseen..
where the bones are scattered
The feet are crushed
And all the craziness is silenced and hushed..
The bones come together as the rain gently flows..
reshaping and transforming hope as it grows
I welcome the broken,
the scars and the pain-
my heart keeps growing
it’s never in vain..
Grind me up
there we are
the aroma of love permeating the air..
my soul is bare..
mixed in till there is not one degree of separation between you & me..
no escaping the fate of us
we are one..
Will it become our undoing
Or are we already undone..
a love that makes many want to run
settles me still..
Sabotaged my heart to the point of no return..
tecum usque ad mortem..
I will not set you free
I savor the flavor of we..
I inherited your shadow..
The over lay
Of you was all I knew..
A reflected image of your love shone through
guiding the way..
each footstep pushing me on
making me strong
The hurried ones, the slow ones, the skipping ones, the stalled ones..
a shadow of love that covered me well..
I was brave enough to follow along
l will shadow dance with you into obscurity..
You are the hand that holds the pen to that far away land
our hearts dictating the plans..
The darkness returns
cocooning me in its’ web of warmth and loneliness..
bringing you back
and all we knew
All we know of our highs and lows..
we’ve been kissed by the rain as it washed away our pain
We endured the fire as it branded our hearts..
our love would have never been erased..
my arms hold on to the empty space
so hard to hold on to what’s gone
Harder to let it go..
I am yesterday
It is tomorrow..
Closing my eyes
I’ll feel it one more time
as I welcome in the dawn..
