Love Can Bring You Back

This piano playing inside my head.
The keys have all gone black.
No going back.
Thin walls surround me.
No lyrics left to say.
No notes left to play.
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.
Perhaps I’m all alone?
Through the looking glass.
I see a ghost that must be me.
Sadness is all I see.

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 me instead.
Notes I thought were already dead.
The keys have all gone black.
Endless love can bring you back,
Through the looking glass.
If love can find you,
Any note will do.
If you can love long enough,
Any song will 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.

 

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.

 

 

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
