When You Can’t Love Enough

When you can’t love enough.
Embrace the emptiness.
It’s all around you.
It fills the room.
And leaves you foolish,
And afraid.
Uncertain for the first time,
Not the last.
Sadness all of a sudden,
Surrounds you,
All around you.
You can’t love enough!
You can’t embrace enough,
What’s already broken,
You pick up the pieces,
Been there.
Words unspoken,
We still share.
Hope.
Anguish.
Tears.
Anger.
Despair.
Us.
When love’s not enough,
I’m still here.
I’ll be there.
Find your way back,
Back to me.

Hold On To the Moments

IMG_0882 (2)
Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Laughter is your music,
Then the laughter’s gone.
Love’s forever, love’s never alone.

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Words aren’t the answer,
When the music is all wrong.

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Broken hearts left empty,
Now silence is your song.

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Takes my breath away.
Love lives on, live for today,

Holds on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Reaching deep, raising you.
I’ll never stop loving you.
Love’s forever, love’s never alone.
You’re never alone.

Kiss the Rain inspired by Yiruma

You can.t kiss the rain.

You can’t kiss the sun.

But kissing you is a gift from God.

Between the rain drops,

Through the rays of sunshine,

All I can see is you.

 

 

The Problem with Rainbows

Burney Falls rainbow
The problem with rainbows.
As beautiful as they can be,
They are always changing.
Sometimes for the better,
Sometimes not.
They appear to be never ending,
And then they are gone,
Just like you.

Shadows

Shadows forming in my mind,
Clouds race to shelter the sun.
Passing quickly.
Not lingering.
Not hiding.
Thoughts are where,
Thoughts have never been.
Shapes of you,
Like a kaleidoscope in my brain.
Spinning.
Have me completely turned around.
Hoping you were gone.
Now I’m missing you.
Drift away,
Drift away.
Tomorrow’s another day.
Or stay.

Hi Mom

Echoes of the past,
Haunting me.
Steps alone.
Steps in the driven snow,
Only I can follow,
Only I can know.
A path ill forgotten.
The journey, a pause,
Takes my breath away.
Reaching back to the life,
I’ve been given.
Breathing life back,
Back to the future.
Where only I can,
Know who I am,
Alone.

Successful business people stand on ground that is “crumbling beneath their feet,” Joseph Schumpeter

When You Truly Love Someone.

When it rains, it pours!When you truly love someone,
You don’t mind the rain.
You even welcome the cold.
And hope there’s no letting go.
You just embrace love.
Each touch is the promise of a new beginning.
A simple smile,
Together in a quiet place.
Until words tear you apart.
Your heart’s been broken,
Over and over again.
Just when it seems you can’t take it anymore,
You just let go.
You can’t hold on any longer.
You can’t stand the pain.
Let in rain.
Just walk away.
Shut out the lights.
Pray you live another day.
Let it rain.

We seek happiness in external things without realizing that they don’t help when we have problems within. We need to focus instead on the joy that comes with peace of mind that allows us to remain happy whatever happens.  Dalai Lama
