Butterfly Reborn

Love tore me up inside,
How it lied and broke my heart.
Then I met him and he smiled,
He said hi and made me sigh.

Something was different,
Love has been gone so long.
He asked me, “If I could be his?”
Of course, “I said yes!”

He hugged me and warmed my heart,
He kissed me and it lingered on my lips.
I’m his special girl and he is my love,
We are all one of a kind now!

The White Topped Dress

The world is made up of a multitude of people,

Each and every person wants to be treated equal.

There are a lot of tough times and good ones too,

However, there are so many things we like to do.

 

It is difficult to tell someone how you feel,

Nevertheless, when I tell you my love is real.

Currently, I feel like my world has faded to black,

I feel there is no one who can bring the color back.

 

I don’t feel like there is any one I can lean on,

Today, I know you are not here and you are gone.

Everything I touch seems to turn into a mess,

Since I met the girl  wearing the white topped dress.

Our Dream Dance

Dedicated to JD

Missing your arms and touch tonight,
Our song floods my ears and entices my mind.
I close my eyes and picture a time when,
We had it all, because we had each other.

I never thought I would be feeling so alone without you,
Dancing together in my dreams and kissing your sweet lips.
Your love changed me in ways that you will never know,
Do you remember the way we met and the nights we shared?

I never felt so in love with a person before I met you,
Remind me of the way, we lost ourselves in each other.
I need you now to just smile and say something clever,
However, you are a dream now that I meet each night.

We were so close to finally having what we want,
Being in love with you took my breath away.
I gave you my heart so many years ago,
I force a smile when my heart is shattering.

How do I reach out to a memory that has faded?
Do I ever enter your thoughts and your mind?
The pain shows me that you were mine once,
My heart hasn’t healed and there is nothing I can do.

Praying and crying won’t bring you back to me,
It has been so long, since we ignited that everlasting fire.
All the feelings we felt and the nights we spent together.
Came to an abrupt end and that is what truly hurts the most.

Coming Home

impossible God

You’re the one I look to when my life falls apart,
You have had me in your hands from the start.
My life was bleak when I decided to move away,
So today, I come back home to you and here I will stay.

I know you will accept me, so I don’t feel an ounce of fear,
I am humbled, on my knees, and silently listening to hear.
Where do I go next as I choose to let you guide me,
You are the only the one in this world that can set me free.

Only you know where my life will ultimately lead,
I haven’t forgotten that I gave you my heart and its deed.
I have stumbled through life and looked for guidance from all,
Instead, I found a ton of strength the moment I took my fall.

I will continue to grow in the ways you choose for my life,
Despite the trials and tribulations that will cut like a knife.
Lord, I know you are in control of my life and my future,
Therefore, the peace will replace the temporary sutures.

The Girl Who Holds My Heart

She is as pretty as can be and I bet she knows it,
I try to be her friend but I feel like I’m going to blow it.
When I see her smile it means a lot,
Sometimes it feels like she is all I got.

Her hair is beautiful and shines in the light,
The day I met her, I know I did something right.
I gave her my heart that day,
She said, “Yes” in her special way.

To watch her turn to go; would tear me apart,
She will always be a piece of my heart.
No matter where this road leads,
With her by my side; I will always succeed.

My First Kiss

Tonight I am in exotic bliss,

Since, I experienced my first kiss.

As you walked me to my door,

My lips begged for more.

As I say good night and climb in bed,

A full moon is shining overhead.

My heart is dancing with delight,

This will be a memorable night.

No one can change this magical day,

For you left me with so much to say.

My life will never be the same,

This first kiss will always remain.
