Set Free

I have peace of mind

Being at peace with myself

After such a long time

Spent longing for forgiveness

When all along it was there

And I just needed to request it-

Ask and you shall receive

Repentance falling into your lap

I am forgiven-

At least forgotten-

But I’ve been released

I am free.

Innocence

We are born with it

And grow with it

It helps us discover new pleasures

And worlds

We never knew existed

Our worlds become corrupt

Poisoning our minds with reality

As we grow older

Until we cannot see the fantasy world

Of our past

Our rose colored glasses

Have turned gray

And we have lost it

Until it finds our children

When they are brought

Into a brand new world.

My Friend, The Sun

The sun rises

 

Graces the falling leaves

With her presence

Causing them to glisten

As they flutter

Silently toward the ground

 

She peeks through

The highest leaves

To find me

Sitting on a tree limb

 

She smiles upon me

And spreads her rays outwards

To greet me

With a warm embrace

 

She stays above me

A guardian in the sky

Watching over me,

As I ponder

New beginnings,

Keeping me safe.

Journey

I’ll let my thoughts

Take me on a journey

With no expectations

So they will not disappoint.

They’ll come to me

When I least expect it

And lift me up

So high

That buildings

Cannot contain my spirits.

They’ll take me to new places

With enough spare time to explore-

A forest

That houses my memories,

An ocean

That holds my heart,

A mountain

That captures my soul-

Allowing me to find myself.

But when I least expect it

They’ll drop me

And I’ll tumble

And fall

All the way back to earth

With a rough landing

In reality.

An Odd Dream

The slumber had started
But I was unaware-
It was my birthday
Though I thought it too soon.

I was told to invite who I pleased
But I forgot

Only a few were expected to show
But where?
And who?
And why, again?

I put my dog in my purse
To keep her from the cold
And traveled to my destination.

I arrived on time
But all alone.
I sat in a booth
By myself
Eating, drinking
In solitude.

I opened my purse to pay
And there lie my dog
Snoring silently.

I realized I was never alone
And never would be-
Before I awoke
Confused.

Taken Away

You will not be taken away from me

Before a kiss is placed from your lips onto mine

A secret shared with nothing standing between us

Our secret language that holds more emotion

Than words could ever carry

Before your arms embrace me so tightly

Just like the day when we first met

When nothing could ever feel so right

Except for where we were at that moment

Before my eyes give away my weakness

And my fear of being alone

Without you

You will not be taken away from me

Before I get the chance to say goodbye.
