Love Can Bring You Back

This piano playing inside my head.
The keys have all gone black.
No going back.
Thin walls all around me.
No words left to say.
Whispered words already said.
Crumpled pages already read.
Falling into the looking glass,
Mirror to my soul.

Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

Perhaps you were looking for me?
Follow the steps I’ve taken a thousand times.
Sidewalks worn like these shoes of mine.
Thoughts of you on my mind.
Are you already gone.
There’s no coming back?
Through the looking glass.
I see a ghost that must be me.
Sadness is all surrounding me.

But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat:
“We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat,
“Or you wouldn’t have come here.”

To the music playing in my head.
Play these seven notes for instead.
Notes I thought were already dead.
The keys have all gone black.
Endless love can bring you back.
Through the looking glass.
Love can find you wherever you are.
That’s what love can do.

If only you can walk long enough,
Any road will do.”

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 Me in Your Heart

Capture

When I write,

Words may be erased.

When I speak,

Words may be forgotten.

When I hold you in my heart,

We share an eternity.

 

Hold On To the Moments

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.
