Shards

Though the mirror is broken
The shards still reflect back

And what you might be hiding is revealed
You can hide it from yourself for only so long

Like waves they come crashing back
Welling up like a forgotten love that has left so long ago

But the sun refracts causing the glass to eliminate your soul
Warming you in ways that you thought weren’t possible

And at that very moment in time
Peace washes over you, cleansing, purifying you inside and out

It will carry you through
Till sorrow touches you once again

And once again you can gaze into the shards of glass
Because they are the windows to your soul

Stars and Moon Light

I never knew the stars were so bright until I gazed into your eyes

The moon’s glowing beams bathing my heart warming me inside

The gentle breeze blowing my hair, I can feel your caressing touch

As the shadows shrink away before the dawn comes to play, leaving me alone in the dark

I feel your presence, it is always with me though you are so far away

Everyday you are on my mind, as the hours pass away

Oh dearest heart, love of my life, my very breath of life

Everything will be alright once you are here with me

Dream, Love Will Get You Through

There is nothing more powerful, amazing, priceless than love

It is forever changing, evolving, growing, unconditional

It is there for you, when you are in need

It is one of the few things you can count on

Though it is taken for granted, and broken from time to time

It is amazing to me that your heart can survive

Though it takes time, the hurt fades and you are only left with memories

Memories from a life that you couldn’t possibly have lived

Trying to save something that has turned to deceit

There may be tears from the enormity of it all

But the tracks fade away and loneliness will fall

That’s when you begin to realize

You are worth more than that, you shouldn’t settle for less

The epiphany strikes when you aren’t looking

You deserve better; loyalty, kindness, compassion, honesty, and above all love

You are love

As love is you

Tides of Change

I wish I could escape upon the gentle breeze
I wish I could skim my fingers upon the waters shallow

To feel the way I used to
To feel whole, not separated

I have been blessed
I have been tested

The norm has changed, and changed once again
The tensions rise, but we are steadfast

We are alone though our cries gather, unite us
We are brothers and sisters, though we do not engage

Our hearts beat and our blood sings as we rise above
Our differences and our prejudices dissolve as we conjoin

We will not let fear make us blind, when we can clearly see
We will not give up because it is strenuous, when you feel like you nothing more to give

I wish I could sit under a willow tree and read the day away
I wish I could dance in the rain and sing along with you…

Untitled

To my heart I will be true, said the girl to her empty soul
And when you open up again, will he fill it, keep it full?

To touch, to feel, gaze into your eyes, think of the possibilities
Maybe your soul will find it’s way back home, with a familiarity

Her heart is healed, though the scars remain hidden deep within
Longing for what her parents have love forever sent

Strong, fierce, loyal till the end, she found herself again
Only wanting to find her missing half, finally to become whole

But she is happy, completely free
The only thing she needs to do is finally take the leap

Wishing for only happiness, she rises up like the phoenix she is
Her soul’s a shining beacon shining from within

Magical

Moonlite glow, upon a starry night
Alight is the fireflies as if they are sprites

Giving a great peace that begins within
I stare in wonder, upon my face I grin

Could it be the crisp nights’ air
A lonely cloud floating who knows where

La Luna in it’s purest state
Mythical beams cast, this must be fate

You have given us a chance to witness life
Sweet melodic sounds played upon a fife

To dance under the moon at a passionate pace
It transcends all time and space

Caught up on this whimsy, all doe-eyed and new
A heart of love that grew

Love is Magical

Tangled Mind

Bewitching beauty, she did not see it
Wrapped in her doubts

Loving heart, she could not believe it
How could anyone love her

Angelic soul, it felt like home, but unfortunately she had lost the key
It was locked away deep inside you see

Selfless being, she thought it was something that didn’t exist
She wove herself into many knots, nearly impossible to unfurl

His mind was an open book, she didn’t know that type of honesty was real
Something clicked into place in her heart; and her weavings fell apart

You see, he was her key locked deep within her
Now she can truly be free

Assumptions

I may not be the most perfect person
I may not be the most wealthy
I may not be the most beautiful
I may not be the most astute
But what I am is –
Thoughtful
Soulful
Heartfelt
Sincere
Amusing
Devoted
Delightful
Kind
Affectionate –
Being you will ever meet, do not judge me
With your querulous ways, cold eyes
Never seeing the truth about who and what I am
Your assumptions have made an ass out of you…
