Take Me

Take me home: the place I love.
Let the positive vibrations take
me away. Let the rhythm solve
my problems. Take me into
your place of refuge. Take me
to a distant place: a foreign land.
If you can, take me by the hand.
Take me, and teach me about
life, love, forgiveness, and truth.
Reggae, stay; continue to play.
Take me closer to myself –
I could use your guidance.
The waves of sound wash
away the worry: no hurry.
I can breathe and clearly see
the place you wish to take me.

Brace for Impact.mp3

 

Listen to my poem, Brace for Impact, come to life. Washington musician, Kyle Bain, recorded this song. This is a very special song as it was presented to me at a low time in my life. Weeks prior to Christmas, my lovely sister, Heather passed away and when I heard this song on Christmas, it was like she was speaking to me. I wrote this poem a few years ago and didn’t quite understand the impact it would have on me at a later time. I believe everything happens for a reason and I believe I wrote this poem for a reason. I love you, Heather. This one is for you.

Faces

Which face will I wear today?
What words do I need to say?
Throughout my day, I relay
words coming from within.
I begin by thinking away –
planning just how to begin.
Every day has its own face.
It just depends on my state.
I face the music. I face
the facts. I face many things.
I can wear many faces.
I do what I can to get out
of my own way. I’m happy
I get to face another day.

 

Our Song

I play our song
when I’m alone.
I hear our song
on my way home.
Track 24 plays
for all my days.
Our song will last
as long as I do.
Life goes fast,
but our song
slows the time.
I am happy
when I hear
our song. Dear,
it won’t be long.
We are strong.
I hear our song
and I think of us.
It brings me back
to a simpler time.
I hear our song
to just rewind –
to just unwind.
I keep our song
in my mind.
