With The Morning Sun

With the morning sun                                                         http://youtu.be/Bj1AesMfIf8

Brings with it

A new eye

New hope

Renewed faith

With the morning sun                                              sunlight

I can smile once again

Put yesterday’s

Fears aside

Reach out

To someone

Say hello

To the ones I see

With the morning sun

I can say


For one more chance.

Whispers in the morning

Dew upon the ground

Leaves standing still

No one around

Hush little baby

Don’t say a word

Sister’s walking softly

Not even a tweet from a bird

As long as you are sleeping

Your pain is resting too

These are the moments I treasure

When you are back to you

And when you wake up brother

I’ll try to do my best

To make your day go quickly

Then you can lay and rest                                                               AnimatedCandleThoughtandPrayers

Hush little baby

Don’t say a word

Sister’s got it covered

Only silence will be heard.

What we think we know

We may  not

What we plan for tomorrow

May not come true

We may breathe this moment

And be gone in a blink’s eye

What we may put off today

May  not come tomorrow

Live life to the fullest

Do it today

Smile and breathe deeply

Notice the tiny things

Be thankful and give thanks

Live like

This is your last moment.

The Secret’s Out

I brought in

Your favorite meal

In hopes that it would

Make telling you easier

For me. I smiled

When I saw you

But you never

Smiled back

As the pain was

Overpowering your

Will to live

I choked and

I swallowed hard

And after we ate

I told you the

News that it was

Going to be yet

Another month.

Your shoulders dropped

And your tears did fall

My own heart

Fell and shattered

On the floor

I held your hand

And professed

That I care

That the day

The second that

I could take your arms

And help you into

The car I would do

It. We both shed tears

Although I promised

I would not but when

Yours fell so did mine

Baby brother I promise

You it hurt me more

To tell you of this delay

You wanted me to stay

But your spirits had dropped

I sat you in your chair

And watched you drift

Off to sleep then

I tiptoed out


I love you Bud

I truly do.

In The Midst Of The Fog

The fog is rolling

A misty fog hovers

Inside my head

Squeezing out

All the feelings

That I have the

Ability to feel

Some say I

Am so strong

But there are times

When I doubt this

Sometimes what we

Know is good for us

Hurts worse than

When we can hide

Between the fog

And dismiss it

For only one more day

The heart feels

The eyes can see

That life moves

Forward when our

Hands reach out

To stop it

Laughter hidden

Tears can be seen

As the mind soaks

In new words

Taking too long

To digest it seems

It is one stage

At a time that

I must enter

Until it becomes

Perfectly clear

That life must

Not remain the same

That new doors

Will be opened

And others shut

Softly behind

Leaving all pain

To whither a way

Into dust being

Swept up in the

Midst of the fog

Until I can have

Time to understand………

Can We?

Freeze Me

Freeze Me (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Does the mind have a way of protecting itself

Can we place our hurt on hold

Can we freeze words we have heard

So our hearts  don’t feel so cold?

Can we close our ears to the world

Can we shut our eyes from the pain

Can we pretend we feel nothing

Can we say we want nothing to gain?

Can I ask for no news for one day

Can blinders be placed around the  heart

Can I pretend that it is yesterday

When nothing tore us apart?

I want to live this one day

Back when we were innocent and young

When playing with a doll or a truck

And Jesus Loves Me Was Sung.
