What Is The Answer?

sad-woman-meditating1-1680x1050-wide-wallpapers.net
Haunting my sleep always

Always I fear mourning loss
Loss that consumes all my soul
Soul that was once entwined in you
You can cure these symptoms of mine
Mine I hope that you will always be
Be in my heart til forever my love
Love’s what we must hold on to
To be or not to is the question
But what is the answer? ©

Happy Spring

“The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”
― Emily Dickinson

Love’s Power

Love is the calm sea and a raging ocean
It’s the cry of a wolf or a dog’s devotion

Love burns down forests and sways trees
It’s the lightning in a storm or a gentle breeze

Love freezes the waters and quenches thirst
It’s fog at dusk or when the sun rises first

Love is a mighty eagle on the air high above
It’s also in the beauty of a tiny sweet dove

Love shakes the earth and tears all asunder
It’s the morning dew and a rainbow’s wonder

Love shows us things we never saw before
It’s able to break apart or make a heart soar©

Resounding Resolve

alone

I refuse to let my heart be overrun
Cares of this world will I overcome

Making my way with steps renew
Believeing in myself is all I can do

Capable of anything is my life song
A run or a walk or just getting along

Trusted the good and even the worst
But most of all must trust in me first

Relying on others is sometimes best
But they can fail you during the test

With strengthened resolve to carry on
I know who I am and where I belong©

Vain Glories

broken-mirror-4-1317204

Yearned for distinction but forgot who I am
Changed for others and I repressed myself
Masqueraded as someone I knew I was not
Searched for happiness in the wrong place
Had desired to please everyone and failed

Becoming fractured, my mirror shattered
Shards that no longer will go back together
Reflections in a million pieces looked at me
Helpless I gathered them hoping for solace
Blood ran from hands and yet I felt nothing

There I stood torn and bloodied by choices
No longer could I see the person I’d become
The weight of this all rested on my shoulder
So removing my mask I felt freedom at last
It was then I knew the mirror was my prison

Happy Superpower Day

wwequal2

I have often explained before
But I can tell you this once more
“What is my power?” Many inquire
I can’t fly or out of my eyes shoot fire
I’m not much for kicking bad guy’s butts
In fact, don’t even like to save old ugly mutts
Won’t come to your rescue at the drop of a hat
I can find bargains, not sure you meant that
My name is not man, like a Bat or Super
That’s cause I’m not a him but a her
Call me a lady I’ll make no qualm
My power however, I am Mom©

by Mac

To all the women out there, whether a mom or not,
celebrating you and the strengths that you have! xx

I Do

We gather together for lots of things, but on this day we’ll exchange rings
Many will be surrounding us here, I don’t have cold feet, not even one fear
Patiently I wait to see you walk the isle, beautiful dress and a perfect smile
You look in my eyes and I see them glisten, saying your vows as I do listen
Holding my hand I feel your’s shiver, Darling you still make my heart quiver
Tell you I want you to have and to hold, I’ll love you forever until we are old
As you say “I do” and I place the ring, I’m sure that I heard the angels sing
Nothing’s more perfect then us today, promise we will always feel this way
The way that you look when I steal a glance, reminds me of all the romance
I pull you close, holding you tight, I know we belong and I know this is right
Life is so fleating and time goes so fast, the moments together will not last
Lets make the best of days that we share, never forget how much we care…

Then I awoke from my sleep and looked in your eyes, it felt like a surprise
Your hair it was white, with lines on your face, but I know I’m in my place
Where we belong and time it has flown, together forever and never alone
Our life has been good, sorrows a few, I still recall when we said “I do”…
And I’d do it again©
