I Hope She KnowsI hope she sees the perfect way
your eyes sparkle in the light
the way your smile sends the dark away
and makes everything alright
I wonder if she feels the things
I feel when you look at me
if she knows the same weaknesses
that I do when you're close to me
I wonder if she knows the friend she has
deep within your soul
and does she sense the fire you have
that you keep under control?
I hope she hears the things you say
when she's not there by your side
your love for her - absolute, complete
makes me sad somehow inside
I hope she sees the prize she has
how far for her you'd go
and as much as I'd love for you to love me...
I hope somehow she knows.
The River and the BoatYour boat has been sanded
Within an inch of its life
To fix all the splinters
From your river's storm and strife
The rapids came before you
But even now the water churns
Pushing, pulling, purging
As lava below her burns
She'd never try to ground you
Or throw you from your craft
But while she tries to forge ahead
She sways you fro and aft.
If only for a moment now
You think you'll never live
As her waters threaten to drown you
In her consuming fears within
Yet every storm has a start and an end
And for her, it's just that way
She'll rage and swell beyond her shores
But find her ground again
And sliding past the sandbars
Where you thought perhaps you'd rest
She swirls around your trailing hands
And your fingers are caressed.
So sail me as you always could
For my promise to you runs ever deep
The end of this journey is worth every storm
Just know that your soul I will keep.
Four-Year-Old Snowhis little face is pressed against the window
eyes wide in innocent wonder
as snowflakes dance in twinkling shoes
to the music of the wind's orchestra
and christmas lights blink in silent accompaniment
the stars are lost somewhere
too busy finding their own way through the storm
to hang there and listen for wishes
from the people whose cars are stuck
the night is silent
as we brew our cocoa
snuggling under blankets
and reading little boy books
about the shoveling to come in the morning
Sleepy time now
tuck in under big blankets
with stuffed animals
playing children's music to fall asleep to
can we play in the snow tomorrow?
Of course, darling.
Unattended Flowersjust a moment of dipping my toes
in the pool of introspection
as you trail false kisses
feather light upon my skin
and I let myself believe for a moment
that the fairytale I want is real.
if I close my eyes I can feel your lips
and not see the knife behind your back
I know it's there, always
but if I could pretend...
if I hold my breath I can stay under this spell
and not smell the alcohol that emanates from you
your life's blood that seeps from every pore
and affects your every word
I need to be whole if only for a few seconds
i need more than this
more than the empty beer bottles
and razor-sharp words you offer me
but i take what i get
and so I will let you do this to me
the flowers I sent you sit unattended on the table.
ShoesYou don't want to walk in my shoes.
The laces that tie me here
are made of fear
and I can't loosen them.
The sole is coming unglued from the bottom
from being walked on too much
and the rubber that is supposed to bounce back
is disintegrating from the tear-pools
I'm always walking in.
Even the tongue isn't holding together.
Every day another piece comes loose
in the form of a cry for help
and soon there will be nothing left.
I keep scrubbing the outside though.
No one ever sees the inside but me.
Keep in Touch!
