Pretending to fly

Could we read a story together Just you and I Let’s immerse ourselves in the words and Like robins and bluebirds Pretend to fly When I shared my poem with you A part of me flew Flew from my heart to yours As high as an eagle soars We were never the same after that…

Meet me there

All I want All I could ever wish Is to go back in time To meet you there Freeze frame for a day To hold your hand again To tell you how much I’ll miss you when you’re gone How much I love you Even still and always will Meet me where the sun Melts…

Always and ever will

Though the distance between us was great Touching gestures of love you’d create To let me know you cared… When the bottom dropped out And I struggled with doubt In kindness you reached out So I would never go without To show me just how much you cared… Now as I watch the night sky…

A place reserved for you

Our little havens of rest

Love being you

Dear tree, lovely tree Grow as tall as you can be Look upon the clear blue sky And be freed from your prison Of asking why Why the seasons treat you so Why the wind blows you to and fro But grow your roots deep in me And just love Being a tree
