My Lost Property

DSC_0036 (2)

Reflective by Mac©

I’m feeling something’s gone in me, but don’t know what it could be
And yet my heart is still all in tact, don’t know then what it is I lack
Often it seems to be very hard to cope, maybe I have lost all my hope
But my soul is surely in its place, and a smile is still across this face
Found my mind and it seems hazy and yes it’s even a wee bit crazy
Maybe I’ll not find my way, I could give up, look again another day

But on and on I’ll search some more, coming to this peaceful shore
Up to the water’s edge and take a look, realized that I have mistook
Many things my reflection shows to me, finding who I’m ment to be
In the search to find what’d been removed, I realized I’ve improved
So if you find my lost property, will you please let it go and set it free

Round And Round

I sit on the ride and around I turn
Passing images go past me blured
Up and down or round and round
Never knowing where I am bound
Life goes by, the music keeps going
Am I the driver or with it flowing?
Never slows down, never lets up
I ask to get off, may have to jump
Putting on a smile so do all the rest
Ahead’s unknow, hope for the best
What’s a remedy for being unsure?
Life is a ride, letting go is the cure!

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
