Without You

Late at night
when all is still.
My head spins at the thought of you.
I try not to choke on the past.
But at last,
Without you
I could fly in the sky.
Without you
this weight in my heart dissipates.
Without you
Im growing up.
Without you
Peace rains on the sidewalk
where you once kissed me.
Without you
Im taking on step at a time.
Without you
my heart sings a different song.
Without you
I am stronger.
Without you
I am no longer afraid.
Without you 
I can be who I am.
Without you
I am free.

By the Fire

No where to go.
No escape from the icy cold.
The wind howls and growls,
I am here in the warmth of your arms.
Keeping me safe by the fire.
Till we retire;
Under cozy blankets.
So let the storm rage! 
Let the clouds cage the sun.
For I am here safe and warm
Away from harm.
With a sweet drink of your lips
And your hands around my hips.
We can lay 
Till the next day.

A Day In The Life Of A Leaf

Once upon a time in a far off place
I’m on a tree and I see its loving face.
She sings to me and waves her branches.
As she waves she shines me through the suns rays
Oh her elegant ways
I can see the lake and mountains.
I can hear the far off fountains.
All day I sway back and forth;
Till the sunsets north.
On a blissful morning a awake to see the sun rise
Oh to my surprise as I opened my eyes.
To see I lay on the face of grass
I scream and I wale
But a storm is about to hale.
Violent the earth shook
I took one last look,
To my tree who
Laid a tear on me.
I blew across the ground
Making a swishing sound.
The wind picked me up
As the sun came out
I was flying across the sky,
But I screamed and I cried.
For me to be on my tree
Then her branches grew
And so did her leaves too.
They pulled and yanked,
As her branches sank.
I held on for dear life
But the wind kept blowing harder
And harder.

Fear or not to fear

Like a thief in the night 
It comes and takes a bite 
Of your heart and soul
Making you feel old 
Tierd and weary 
It grasps tightly 
Never to let go
It's a comfy couch
That makes it hard to leave 
Letting fear take control
Or do you pull
And yank you self off the floor
Stand up and fight
Till it's defeated on this night
Take control 
Never loose your self in fear
Oh how my dear 
Becareful of what you hold on to.

A friend

Have you heard 
The greatest story ever
Are you curious to know
How far it will go?
How long it will take?
Will it make your heart break?
To you this must be true
This story must be new
A man and his people 
Saving and giving little by little
Sharing the word day by day
A man with a smile and wink
No it's not Saint Nick you must be hoodwinked.
He gives love and heals those judging hearts
He feeds those in need
He does good deeds
To know him
And his love
Share his passion for the one above 
Watching over like a dove
Not that I've sucked you in 
Let's begin
How this tale 
Will soon taste like old ale.
The man punished for doing good 
Do you think anyone should?
Be whipped and scratched 
Kicked and batched 
Thirtynine times
Just save our lives yours and mine
On the road to calvery and through the city
He carried that splintered plank 
Oh how slivers sank
Down his back all mangled and gashed
Blood started to dripp from being lashed
Little by little 
Step by step 
He reached the hill 
Where he will be killed 
On a cross to bear our lost 
In this painful cost
For you and me
He lays on top of the wood 
As the guards pushed and shoved
He felt a 9inch spike in his feet
In is hand the nail 
Impailed his skin and bone
Oh how he screamed and groaned
They lifted the cross with a creak
The wind started to shriek 
Blood and water hit the ground
Walls we couldn't move came crashing down 
As he hang and said it is finshed 
Buried he lay
Tears fell where he will stay
One day
Two days
Three days had past
The end was near for our man
But then the ground shook and shakes
His body became awake

The Day Plays Away

In the morning I hear love songs
Song by angels from above
I hear songs of the sun and dancing
Or songs about morning coffee.
The hours fly by
Until noon is high in the sky.
When the beat lyrics come alive.
Singing about journies 
Road trips with friends;
Screaming at the top of our lungs 
When the day is done.
Rocking out like nobody is watching
Making our hearts smile a mile.
Then dawn begins to break
The songs become slower,
Lyrics become deep,
And engraved in the stars above.
Lullabys rock the night away
Of comfort;
Recalling your mistakes
Or unforgettable heartbreaks.
Weary and dreary,
Escaping to the wonders of dreams 
Where the music is up to you to make.

My heart aches
My heart breaks
From the pain that blows in the wind
So I sing upon my sin
I cry in this empty space
that has carried my disgrace.
Black and white
I am held tight 
by the chains that bound me 
to this rock I am to be
nothing but dust
that will rust.
Show me the light
turn it bright!
As the sun above
 I can see your love.
Send your mercy!
 It may pierce me
That I can be. . . 
filled with compassion and your grace
So I can stop running this race.
Your mercy
rescued me
in the middle of the ocean,
in the driest of deserts,
In the frozen places of my heart.
Your mercy found me
and bond to me.
Seal my heart!
Break my chains!
To be free of this misery!
Bring me home to your heart,
and never let me depart
ever again.
