in every being…

in every being…

lines and riddles
and
cries and giggles

slip quickly from hands
that don’t know
what they’re missing

soft winds
through the leaves,
kissing chimes
crystals sparkle,
whispering tiny songs
of hope
that expand with every breath
into gales strong enough
to embrace the world,
quiet enough to
reveal the sounds
of the autumn sky

3/4 Time

We live a life filled with music
I hear you softly humming
In the wind through the trees
With my eyes closed,
In a silent room
Your voice creeps into my head
Making itself comfortable
More than a long found friend
Soon we are singing the familiar chords
That brought us together
Then, and now
The notes lilt and sway
Catch up then lay back
Waiting for that moment
To let the full orchestra in
As it speaks our tale
Forever captured in 3/4 time

again, though still

it’s so easy to fall in love with you
again, though still
open
honest
trusting
disarming
jumping into it
again, though still
with no fear
with no regrets
with everything I have ever wanted
craving to find out
everything I never knew I wanted
making it all one love
again, though still
when the moment finally struck me
when all at once you were right there
ready to love me back
it was so easy to fall in love with you
again, though still

planning for forever

how can she just reemerge like that?
simple talk of times past
sharing the details of our lives
like we always do when we come together
but this time…

this time we came together
and we never parted
what a wonderful
what a beautiful
what an amazing thing it is
sharing the moments of our lives
making new ones
planning for forever

why you, why now?

it is because
you don’t often get
second chances in this life

I was wrong before
I was an idiot
I was blind and deaf

I was careless
with both of us

I have to take this
second chance
that we have been given

I have to take it
and nurture it
and turn it into
something we have always
known it could be
