Taking a Chance

Vision skewed and thoughts so dark
Searching, desperate, for that spark
To light her way through this place
And through the dark she will race
What she sees ahead can’t be real
Those hands reaching out that would steal
The heart that beats within her chest
And yet her soul feels such unrest
Unsure of the path she should take
Thinking of all that is at stake
Slowing down and breathing deep
With only faith she must leap


What Matters

It’s all those little things
You and my heart sings
The gentle way you brush my hair
Away from my face and just stare
In disbelief that I’m yours
And my faith that look restores
It’s the little things that you say
Without thought each and every day
That tell me that this love is true
And that I can say “I love you”


The One

You were the one who once proved me wrong
Even though your stay was not for long
You gave me faith and showed me hope
And when you left I tried to cope
But so many since would test my will
Yet my heart longs to trust even still
In my heart you will always stay
As the one who did not betray
This tender heart you loved so well
Forevermore under your spell


A Chance

A gentle caress upon her arm
Allows her to forget all the harm
And those tender words in her ear
Let her move past all of the fear
From across the room, that adoring glance
Reminds her that there is always a chance
That someone new could prove her wrong
That someone safe could come along
With hands so gentle and words so sweet
And a soul that would never mistreat


Cries Unheard

That gentle voice she longs to hear
Telling her there’s nothing to fear
In the night so dark and cold
Where the screams ring out so bold
But into a void they seem to fall
She never hears that answering call
So she sits and waits for any reply
And ever more desperate is her cry
Her loneliness becoming bittersweet
As her hope and faith become obsolete


In The Shadows

Clouds move across the sky the way they move across my heart
Casting shadows where once there was light until they break apart
Light comes and light goes, in patterns large and small
Sometimes lasting, other times brief, more shadows fall
Always seeking the light, knowing that somewhere it can be found
Seeking the warmth it gives when those clouds no longer have it bound
Feeling so hopeless at times with no end to the clouds in sight
Losing faith in the ability to continue this fight
Looking again to the sky, watch as the clouds suddenly part
Find the same within myself, there is light still within this heart
