Surrounded

Surrounded!
And alone.
Smiling faces,
All around.
And no place to go.
I can hear the silence,
In the whispers.
Words spoken,
Lie quietly,
In the past.
Our last.

Surrounded!
And alone.
Around this bend,
In the road,
I can’t see.
There’s a lot,
Of places,
You’re telling me.
Telling me to go.
I didn’t know.
You’re saying yes.
When the answer’s no.

Surrounded!
And alone.
Smiling faces,
All around.
And no place I’m free.
If you’re looking,
I’m sure you’ll find me.

She’s My Rainbow

She’s a quiet smile,
A gentle laugh away.
All I want is another day,
Another day.

She’s my rainbow,
On a gray day.
All I can do is pray,
Like I do,
For another day.

She’s the soft breeze on my face,
A warm embrace.
And all I want is another day.
Another day.

She’s the thoughts I wish I’d had.
The kindness when I’m sad.
All I can do is pray.
Like I do.
For another day.

She’s my hands that reach for the sky,
She’s my voice in silence cries.
All I want is another day.
Another day.

She is every gift I’ve given,
Every gift I’ve ever received.
All I can do is pray.
Like I do.
For another day.

She’s every breathe I take,
Every life I make.
All I want is another day.
Another day.

She’s everything I see,
She’s the light inside of me.
She’s my Mom.
All I want is another day!
Another day.
