Pass The Baton


It seems so long now,
But just like yesterday,
You were still here,
And at just a phones reach.
***
Now , years later,
You are years away,
Yet your life is in me,
And passes in seconds.
***
You once brought me up,
Made me more like me,
And now you’ve passed,
And passed the baton on to me.
***
I now live in your memory,
Remember the good times,
Think of your flaws,
And I would take them for a few more times.
***
But here I sit,
Taking over from you,
Learning to live,
And not to forget to laugh.
***
You may no longer be,
In reach of me,
But you live within my heart,
As just another part.

Letting Go Of Love


You store my heart,
From within my chest,
Ripped it out,
From beneath my breast.
***
Never knowing,
What you had done,
Had doomed my heart,
From then on.
***
I struggle to stop,
And let you go,
Because you are the only thing,
I now know.
***
But like a fallowed field,
Or a cold winter meadow,
My heart has started to clog up,
And I must let you go.
***
Don’t forget me,
When you think,
Look back fondly,
From time to time.
***
I’ll miss you,
My loving friend,
Even if you,
Were never truly mine.

GoodBye Dad


The last year has been hard,
I won’t pretend otherwise,
My last words were over a phone,
And my last picture is old.
***
You didn’t get to live long,
There are many things you taught me,
Like how to remain strong,
When life treats you wrong.
***
But lately I’ve been thinking,
And everything reminds me of you,
So many unasked questions,
And answers that will never be.
***
Life has failed to break me yet,
But taking you was a decent attempt,
I still can’t find the perfect way,
To say Goodbye Dad.

Love (RBTL)


Grab your heart and bottle it up.
Love isn’t only for the strong.
By loving you will learn.
The many ways a heart breaks.
Horns and devil tales may plage you.
And people may even leave you.
Hold you own and keep on searching.
On the wishes of you heart and on your longings.
Tight in the knowledge you will find love.

My Love For You


My love for you has only grown,
Over the years and over the miles,
I have never stopped loving you.
My heart has been yours,
Since we first said hello,
Since you first let me know.
And after all this time,
You will understand,
The way my heart demands.
Some would have given up,
And some think I’m silly,
But I still love you.
My heart calls for you,
And sings continually,
I Love You…

Be In My Dreams Tonight


Today I want to spend,
All my time with you,
Just laying in your arms,
Lying next to you.
*
And when the stars,
Rise into the sky,
Just let us drift,
Into each others mind.
*
In each others dreams,
Let us spend our time,
Just living all the lives,
We may live together.
*
Though you may not,
Be next to me tonight,
I will live happy with you,
Being next to me in my dreams,

Mines is a Redhead


Some like the blonds,
Some like the brunets,
But I’m not like the rest of them,
I like the reds.
*
Some call them weird,
Some even scream,
Some call them beetroot,
But to they are my dream.
*
One day I will meet him,
And one day we will be,
In love and together,
Forever and ever.
