Rainbows End

Listen! Did you hear that sound? At first it was a whisper, then it was a pound.
Beating on the window, banging on the door. Did you hear it, as my tears pour?

I didn’t want to allow them to fall, but you encouraged me, “Let go of them all!”
Keeping in my feelings is not healthy for me, they need to fly away, go, be free

So I wrote them in this letter, released it to the sky, watch as it soars so very high
And one day, I hope you see, there’s a rainbow in my eyes which you gave to me©

Light Breaks In

tecza

Light breaks in as the day starts anew
I feel the warmth on me from you
The storm has passed and all is clean
No more darkness, all can be seen

Water glistens from the tall oak tree
High up above a bird soars free
Nature fought and the storm is done
Tattered and worn, yet we won

Lightning struck and thunder roared
Hale came down and rain poured
Still, around me I feel safe and sound
Feet firmly planted on the ground

Light breaks in as the day starts anew
I feel the warmth on me from you
You’re my strength, shining as the sun
Tattered and worn, yet we won©

All That Remains

Had disappeared, you broke me free

Told me that I don’t have to be
The person others believe that I am
Don’t need to give one damn

Tow the line, be a ghost of myself
Put all my desires on a shelf
Dot all your “i’s” and cross every “t”
This is what they want of me

Don’t know how to live, but cannot die
Although I do not know why
Until one day you whispered in my ear
Reminded me, you’re still here

Escaped the chains that held me down
Almost too late, I nearly drown
Then you reached through, took me in
One more day they don’t win!

Thank you, hope, my dearest of friend
You remain true to the very end©

Inside Me

12547513_219073878437932_865123941_n

There’s a yearning deep inside of me
Wants to get out and needs to be free
If I give in to this temptation though
Not sure where it will want me to go
So I’ll push down this want and need
For without strength it will not heed
This little ember is within my control
But anymore will burn away my soul
Then remnants of who I’d once been
No answer for where or why or when
Just a pile of my former self you’d see
If I allow this lust inside to roam free©

Pull Back The Curtain

no-perder-la-motivacion

Pull back the curtain and you will see all the things hidden in me
Locked away deep in my soul, these are what make me whole
Keeping them covered from view, so not to hurt all of you
But I must embrace who I have become, my entire sum
Living a secretive way is not how to spend every day
Making the choice is harder still, but I know I will
Because when I choose me, then am I set free©

Our Yesterdays

one-couple-two-spiritual-paths

When looking back I wonder where time went
For all the memories and moments spent
We laughed and cried, we hoped and dreamed 
Could conquer anything, or so it seemed
Remembering things that bring my eyes tears
Even more are the smiles in those years
But I feel it was all worth those tears we shed
Today all the way back to when we wed

As the day starts fresh and life begins all new
Won’t ever forget there was me and you
I believe our love was written up in the stars
Even though it may no longer be ours
The journey has deviated from what was to be
One way for you and the other for me
So as we part, both heading our separate ways
Together is left in all of our yesterdays©

Fear Anchors

Reblogging from back in December. One of my favorites…

1d67f19728a40a655155a2f723205f87

Anchor that held me
Has left the sea floor
Not sure where it went
Isn’t there any more

Swaying and bobbing
The ocean has taken
I look to the captain
But he has forsaken

Swept with the tides
No harbor in sight
Just miss the rocks
Lost to great fright

Then I remembered
Was of my own choice
I must let it all go
Have my own voice

Taking the controls
My vessel, my own
Direction of choosing
Even though all alone

No longer I’m pulled
No longer you steer
No longer I’m anchored
No longer I’ll fear©
