Thoughts of a writer

thoughts come
from a place
that’s beyond
the depth
of my soul
I close
my eyes
and let them
fill my mind
waiting
to be born
to be thrown
across paper
erased
and rewritten
allowing them
to breathe
a life
of their own
these words
are why
I write
these words
are why
I dream
I know
no other way
to let
them be free

Until my last breath

and in
the midst
of this
crazy world
where change
fills our life
and time
seems to pull
us apart
not only
in distance
my heart
continues to fall
no matter
where we are
in this universe
I will love you
until the world
is no more
until the stars
stop shining
and until
my very
last breath

May showers

sweet rain drops
fall gently
upon the rooftop
the memories
of you
flood me
all at once
long summer days
endless moonlit nights
an oceans dream
lapping at
my feet
I find comfort
in these
May showers
for I know
you’re there,
seeping into
my soul
with every drop
that falls
good night
my sweet love
for when I wake
I’ll find you again
in the sunshine
of a new day

Waiting

I carry
the weight
of your world
upon my soul
the burdens
of your life
the pain
and sorrow
I hold
the secrets
that you share
as your tears
soak into me
I carry
your happiness
your smiles
and the dreams
of your heart
no matter
the day
or time
I’ll be
right here
waiting for you

Dream sweet girl

the seasons change
and winter sets in
cold soaked
down to her bones
her smile fades
oh so slowly
sleep
sleep
sleep
sweet girl
forget this dreaded world
the rain pounds loudly
against the window
silencing the pain
that screams from within
dream
dream
dream
sweet girl
let your soul free
close your eyes
and just dream
