Take aim om the horizon

Look at what lies ahead

The skyline tells a story

That is ours to read

Maybe it’s a city

With skyscrapers and lights

Bringing to mind

The hustle and busle

Or a country view

With bold bright stars

Naturally lighting the fields

No matter where you are

There is beauty in what lies ahead

We just need to take the time

To really look beyond our vision

A New Life

Headed down the road

I have memories of you

In my review mirror

Ghosts from the past

I’m driving away from

But up ahead

The horizon shows hope

A new beginning with peace

All I have to do

Is get there

And live

Dawn’s Early Light


We sat in the truck next to each other talking about everything.  Our favorites, what we dreamed, our dislikes, what we had… it went on and on for hours.  Then as the first birds of the day began to signal the coming sunlight with song we were amazed that the time had passed.  Telling him I would see him later that night we just stared at the horizon watching the sun create the day’s first shadows.  Then with one last kiss goodbye I slid off of the seat and stepped into the grass, covered in morning dew.


Slowly walking to the door I heard him start the truck and pull out of the driveway.  I did all I could to keep from looking back and waving goodbye.  I removed my keys from my purse and heard a squirrel chatter at a bird in the tree as I opened the door.


The night is forever in my memory as an example of time truly lost in what seemed like seconds.  When you are with the right person at the right time, time more than stands still.  It runs backwards and takes your breath away.
