gentle words, harsh ones
loud words, quiet ones
all telling us something..
they are golden moments
Rare, precious and fleeting..
changing us – enlightening us –
parts of each one
making a whole..
freeing, growing and all knowing
we won’t walk this way again..
are you present
or just there..
really seeing and aware of all the love and care
that fill the atmosphere..
It is that air that fills our lungs with love, joy and despair..
I choose to care
I’ll let your chaos be my beauty..
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..
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..
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..
stretched so tight I no longer feel..
the impenetrable wall
The divide growing
as our hearts are sowing new paths..
Opposition to one another
Fighting for space in the canvas of your heart..
Until I say no more
no more to saying yes
Freeing myself to choose..
Only when I’m free
Can i keep the monsters at bay
The ones I can’t see that choke the air out of me..
I knew this day might come
though I knew you were my truth..
there’s no comfort in waiting for the last beat of our hearts
Let it die before that starts..
I need you to look out and see
you will always be a part of me..
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..
