Timing

You and I
are picture perfect
in the undercurrent
and the in-between

We both live beneath
an umbrella of stars
that are yours
and mine
but they are not ours

They never will be

While sitting in this memory
my eyes begin to water

as my mind wanders through
the road together we traveled

but as tears fall, their love washes
over all that was unraveled

leaving a smile on my face
knowing his love and humor

will always leave a trace
for this moment and into my future

While sitting in this memory
I hold deeply in my heart

what once was of the man
whose presence I miss

Abounding Faith

 tulips by sabrina FINAL EDIT

You’re a never ending roller coaster ride
taking me to the highest level of contentment
and then soaring downhill together
to my lowest moments of worry

You sit with me through plummeting tears
as my sadness whispers uncontrollably
and I’m forever wishing the answers
would arrive soon all wrapped up and pretty

You are compassionate, so I give you
my trials that steal sleep from me in the night
now bringing peace to my emotions and
calming the control I no longer want

Whether the road is smooth or uneven
You’ll always have a special place
in the pocket resting beside my heart
and I’ll never let you drift away

Infinite Melody

star 2

My universe lingered timelessly in a lonely state
where darkness followed relentlessly with no possible escape
Now you’ve altered my world since the start of that day
when my vision of life transformed in euphoric ways
The beating of my heart changed to an unknown tempo
and the bird’s debut ended with a beautiful crescendo
Your arms were there to catch me when I was about to fall
to save me from a shadow that kept me feeling small
How kind of you to share your love, to think of me as worthy
to look beneath my saddened soul and see my genuine beauty
Where gray was very greedy, you gently placed a star
shedding light upon my sky, erasing all my scars
I will show you equal devotion that you have revealed to me
and together we’ll fly in truth and trust for all eternity

Healing

painting

Gasping for air
with my head under water
lungs on the verge
of exploding

I’m in orbit
heading into a world
of other dimensions
where gravity
has no bearing

but stubbornness
can be a positive thing
because I have no plans
for drowning

In fact, I see a tiny speck
of light, touching
the sparkling surface
and I wonder now,
how long its been there

I’ll be alright
I’ll be alright

It’s a vital collaboration
between mind and limbs
in order for broken pieces
to be repaired
for me to begin again

and even with tears
trailing down my face
their cool embrace
brings joy

where I once felt pain
