Forever Thankful

How can I ever express

How much I appreciate

You and all that you do.

There’s no way to say

How much you impact

My day. Never go away.

I say thanks. Thank you

For being yourself.

I just wish you knew

How much you’ve helped.

I’m forever thankful

For your soul and spirit.

I forever say thanks,

Hoping you hear it.

A Thoughtful Marathon

I think back to the times we had

Finding the source of what makes me sad.

I remember bits and pieces of us:

Memories I can’t completely trust.

I feel this pain cut so deep:

Haunting memories that won’t let me sleep.

I forget some things, but I remember most.

I still remember… that’s why I coast.

I can’t seem to break this thought

And what we had can’t be taught.

Your shadow casts as this pain lasts.

I run away to only see you;

I can’t escape no matter what I do.

I keep on running until I’m free

knowing these thoughts will never leave.

Birds on a Wire

There we are – hanging in the balance,

talking about the struggles we face.

High in the sky, we search for solace

and make each other slow the pace.

I do not know how I got here,

but I know it is best for me.

High in the sky, I show no fear;

I stay in a place that is so free.

We all suffer from different pains

and how we continue is a mystery.

We all look at people and at things

and make sure to impact history.

The flight I traveled has taught me

how to love no matter the weather.

The life I have lived made me see

it may get bumpy, but it gets better.

Birds on a wire, we chirp away

to remind each other how to love.

Birds on a wire, we face the day;

and bless skies with sounds from above.

A-Loan (uhh-loh-nnn)

Can you leave me a loan?

I could use the help tonight.

I need a friend who I can phone:

to keep me company until first light.

I feel so alone, trapped in myself.

I’m not sure how to break out.

I see some light, but I need some help.

Show me sunshine I know nothing about.

Just leave me a loan.

I miss that face that appeared so frequent.

Just. Come. Home.

Explain to me where my friend went.

The days pass by yet you do not.

All I wanted was some of your time.

I think about you more than a lot;

We’re alone together: the saddest rhyme.

Strange-R

I walk past you and forget the past

because what we had didn’t last-

I do not know you anymore;

you have become a stranger.

The feelings I feel do not stay;

the energy we had went away.

I have become strange; Everything is strange.

Has it always been this way? What has changed?

I have seen you before, but I cannot recall

because I do not remember you at all.

You have grown into a stranger;

The life I live is becoming stranger

I say hi to you, the person I knew

Because you’re looking oh so blue.

We stare at each other for a moment

As I wonder where the time went.

You say hi back and we both crack smiles

Before I walk another 100 miles.
