Every Storm Runs Out of Rain

It’s been pouring for months now

Your heart feels like it’s drowning

When will it all end?

I don’t think I can take much more…

 

Your friends told you that in time the pain would fade

And before you knew it, things would be alright again

But the storm…

Always Within My Heart

If only there was a way to visit Heaven

I would make regular trips there

Meet family members who died before I was born

See firsthand what they were like

 

And there are those that died when I was young

When they left, I barely knew them

So I’d spend…

Life: Live It

When the rain falls, don’t hide yourself away

Learn how to dance your way through the storms

And when the sun is shining brightly upon you

Don’t take a single minute of that for granted

 

Life is a series of ups and downs

A crazy…

For My Son

Hands once so very small

That held mine so tightly

Once you needed me for everything

But now as the time has flown by

Your need for my help lessens

 

There is a part of me that loves watching you grow

Just to listen to your ideas…

The Tale of a Baker's Son

I am a baker, like my father before me. One might say that I’m rolling in dough. Okay, that pun was a bit corny, but at least a tad bit funny, I think. But, I am not known for my clever wit. However, I once had quite the athletic ability. I used to play baseball, football, and even could be found…

My Quest For A Fairytale Life

I spent years chasing my fairytale

And dreaming of a love built to last

Hoping my prince would sweep me off my feet

Together then we would find our happily ever after

 

After awhile it seemed that love would forever elude…

A Mother's Heart

From the very beginning, something changes within

Feelings & emotions new & difficult to understand begin

As a tiny life begins to grow within, you begin to see

It’s not just about you anymore, it’s now mainly about that little baby

As your body changes…

I'm An American

The land of the brave & home of the free

That is what you are to many, including me

Across vast & might oceans and distant seas

Some see us as a land of greed & shallow vanity

It is true that our nation has its troubles, that's easy to see

And…

Thank You For Your Support

We all have ways in which we express who we are

Labels Are Made For Cans, Not People

Labels can be found on water bottles & soup cans

But all too often they are found on our fellow man

We have all been guilty of judging others

Though instead we should love our sisters &…

We Are Works of Art

All that I am & all that you are is poetry

We are works of art for all to see

The way we move, the way our minds operate

What wonders we think of & create

 

God is the great creator, the one who designed us

How we wove us together, all the angels…

I Want To Say Thank You

Some stresses in my life feel difficult to defeat

But know that head on my problems I will meet

I will stumble, fall, & sometimes feel pretty low

But in the end, I will rise each time & be ready to go

 

Head…

Ode to Onyx

When I saw a certain black kitten, he ensnared my heart

I knew he was to be a part of our little family from the start

The name that I came up for him was one that I thought fits

Being such a black beauty, he deserved the name Onyx

Stunning, agile, full…

Ms. Hyde

There is a song by Halestorm called Mz. Hyde and I found that I could identify with it a bit. Living with Bi-Polar disorder, well sometimes I am Ms. Hyde and sometimes I’m Dr. Jekyll, just depends on the day, sometimes the moment. And, one really never knows in advance which girl you will be…

Love Shouldn't Be Bought, But Merely Given

Join me for a little pre-Valentine’s Day rant

Though before I begin, let me set the record straight

I’m not single, bitter, & jaded, though I once was

Happily taken am I, but my views on this day are ones I won’t recant

 

My view is and has always been…

Music Tells My Story

When chaos surrounds my every moment

And I have been subjected to loss & torment

Thoughts & emotions flood my veins

There must be a way to express my anger, sorrow, & pain

 

That’s when I turn to a wondrous thing called music

It helps me tell…

You Set Me Free

For years, I wandered through the ashes of my past

Dwelling on pain, guilt, & heartaches that I thought would forever last

“Will I ever be able to move on, from my yesterdays be set…

God, Lead The Way Each Day

As the cold clings to my bones

Refusing to let its hold on me go

The sun shines, radiating off me a golden glow

Renewing within me a fierce hope

 

I have faced worse than this

And always have made it through

I know that there is joy in the days…
