My Mama

She is beautiful
Beyond words 
Her heart 
Like a wide open ocean
Farther than the eyes can see
Her eyes
Overflowing with kindness
Stronger than a cup of tea
Her ears
Sharpened to hear the signs
Of a drifting soul
Ever hearing
Always listening
Her Lips
In constant willowy whisper
With a prayer on bended knee

There's a place

There's a place
In the corner of my heart
That beats
To rhythm that's set apart.

There's a space
In the depths of my mind
That chooses
To forget things unkind.

There's a day
That will come
Of how it is today,
Where the place and space
Must choose to sing as one
To show that things
Are worth the wait.

Where do you start?

Where do you start?
When you don't know how
When you don't know where
Everything you need is in the why.
The Why is why you need to care.

Trembling lips
Shaky knees
Voices that echo unkindess
And let it under your skin.
Hands and Faces
Driving a stake through the emotion within.

Fear runs amok
Turns warm blood
Into icy blue
But it will always be
Hope, Desire and Drive
That reigns in a Few.

A Single Sigh

A single drop of water
Can cause iron to rust
And one sour grape
Can break your trust.

It's the calm before the storm
Yet other times
The return back to form.

Mountains crumble
To valleys in my dreams
But rivers will
Never flow into streams.

Eyes well up and lips quiver
Tears trickle down
As true form is slowly found.

There's a little fog
There's a little rain
Hardly anything
That remains the same.

It's the calm before the storm.
And when everybody turns a blind eye
Things never end with a single sigh.

A rummage in the depths
Will reveal all but one
Into darkness it must go
Until light repels everything but the sun.

shards of three

I try telling myself
all this is meant to be
but the emptiness inside
creates shards of three.

O little one!

Come take my hand
O little one.
You are my bright
And shining star
In the sun.

You take my soul
And make it come undone
You are my pathway
Until the reaper decides to come.

A tumble down
A flight of stairs
All but one

You take my mind
And tear it apart
All is shred.

Come away with me
O little one
Come create
A new world
Under the sun.

Wisdom and sorrow
I see in your eyes
All at once.

You are the light
I once saw in my mirror
Through a sight beyond sight.

A teardrop
Glints in the moonlight.
Through the clouds in the dark.

O little one
Find the fire in the night
And meld these two
Until just right.

On that night
We become one.

And in the new day's twilight
We are one.
