Doors

Another door slammed in my face,

Soon there will be nowhere left to go.

No one to talk to when things are rough.

No one to help making me feel useful.

I must just push too much,

Trying to force my way in;

Into any kind of a relationship.

Somewhere I can belong again.

I just need one more opening,

One more chance to get it right.

Maybe I won’t lose again.

Maybe I can find a friend

Who will open up and stay,

No matter how much I care.

So, I keep walking the hall

Looking for an open door,

Looking for you.

Hurt

Did it ever

Occur to you

That you

Could hurt me

As easily

As you do?

It makes me

Wonder if

You ever cared

For me.

If you did

Why would you

Want to

Twist the knife

You put into

My back?

Lies and rejection

Have replaced

Love and affection.

No longer

Can I handle

This pain

… goodbye.

Sleeping Beauty

You breathe deep and slow,

Your chest rises and falls,

I see your eyes moving under their lids;

Hoping you are having a good dream.

As I watch you sleep, I am in awe

That this beautiful creation came from me.

Knowing you have changed so much,

Growing up faster than I can follow,

I treasure all these moments

As much at the ones when you’re awake.

And in every second of everyday,

My love for you grows faster than you do.

You are my life, my hope, my love –

You are my daughter.

I’m Here

A shoulder to cry on

Will always be yours

I may not understand

But I can offer empathy

For you are always

Held within my heart

A friend until the end

 

Don’t face the pain alone

I may not have the answers

But I can listen well

And will support you

For you are always

Held within my heart

A friend until the end

 

When the world overwhelms

I may be in the same situation

And I can stand by you

To face all adversities

For you are always

Held within my heart

A friend until the end

Life of Crime

Like a thief in the night

You stole my heart

Leaving me the victim

Completely vulnerable to you

You ripped out my hesitations

Like an attack with a knife

So sharp and fast

I didn’t know what happened

You locked me up

Inside of your love

Like a criminal in a cage

Contained within you

I am completely guilty

Of overdosing on your love

Just leave me here to die

In the warmth of your heart

She Said Yes

Her eyes were dazzlingly bright

Her smile as radiant as the sun

On her hand she displayed a ring

That told the world a story

She has found the one she wants

The one she will be with forever

He wants to make her a part of his world

For forever and a day

And he shares this family heirloom

With a sparkling diamond gem

Together they will share a life

And bask in their love for each other
