Out of Sight

I haven’t seen you in years.
I forget what you look like.
You are quick to avoid mirrors
because beauty is out of sight.
I push through looking for you.
I try to find what’s out of sight.
I try to turn black skies to blue:
to let you know I am alright.
I search for what we once had;
I do my best to not be sad.
I know that you left before dawn,
right in the middle of our song.
After all these years, I remain
searching for love that heals pain.
You have been out of my sight,
but I know that I will be alright.
After many tries, I looked within –
to places that I have never been.
I found the ghosts of us smiling,
within myself, in a place of hiding.

The More You Know

I love you, you know that?

I think about you often.

I hope you know

my life you softened.

I am not as sad

as I was before.

I know what I had,

but I wanted more.

I can see clearly;

I am not afraid

as my past I bury

on the ground, I lay.

I can’t help to know

this life so vast.

I love you as I go

for as long as I last.
