Seashells and the Stars

Monday, June 3rd, 2019
I love you, goodbye.
Please don't watch me cry.
Sit beside me,
while I rest my eyes.

Hold your hand in mine.
Peace is what I find,
when you're so near
and I just drift away.

Heart beats as it slows.
Your heart already knows.
When mine stops,
yours will carry on.

Close your eyes and breathe.
Warm tears fall as you grieve.
As this moment,
fades into eternity.

All that I would wish,
is for one last hug and kiss.
Else, turn back this 
unkind clock of fate.

Sweet memories of our past.
They linger, but they don't last.
Brief, like small footprints,
in the sands of time.

The ache you feel inside.
Countless tears you've cried.
Those sleepless nights,
that turn into lonely days.

Don't despair in grief.
I did not really leave.
Though you can't see me,
I am beside you still.

Close your eyes again.
Slowly breathe me in.
Feel me here love,
I'm beating in your heart

Our love will always be,
like seashells in the sea.
Endless, though sometimes 
hard to find.

I'm never far from you
in all the things you do.
And in each breath,
and every time you smile.

So when you think of me
and how we used to be.
Take comfort, that
someday, will be again.

In the darkness of the night,
quiet stars twinkle light.
They shine for you, dear
though they are so far away.

Our love is just the same
and till we meet again.
Hold the stars dear,
and do not curse the dark.

I love you, is not goodbye.
Please don't grieve or cry.
Hold me close dear,
forever in your heart.

Did You Ever Love Me

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

warm tears drop
like summer rain
my hearts bleeding
broken again

storm clouds gather
eclipse the sun
cries like thunder
she was the one
was she the one

let it all go now
and fade to black
wishes all wasted
you can’t call back

was just an illusion
you can’t control
in all this confusion
I gambled my soul
yeah I lost my soul

did you ever love me
or was it just someday
to save your fantasy
so much safer that way

to never have to know love
or if the passion would fade
we sacrificed our true love
for the settled lives we made

You set my heart afire
just to watch me burn
it’s been twenty years
and I’ve yet to learn

can’t stop the tears girl
and I can’t take the pain
since I know for sure now
I’ve lost you again
oh I’ve lost you again

wind strips the trees
till they bend and shake
twice in one lifetime
made the same mistake

No don’t look back girl
there is no one to blame
the breeze sadly echoes
it’s haunting refrain
this haunting refrain

did you ever love me
or was it just someday
to save your fantasy
so much safer that way

to never have to know love
or if the passion would fade
we sacrificed our true love
for the choices that we made

My old heart aches
it’s been ripped out from my chest
and I can’t stop crying girl
god I swear I’ve tried my best

But I no longer taste the laughter
that you danced upon my tongue
and I can’t hear your sweet music
so I don’t want to feel the sun
oh how I miss the sun

Without you it’s just not living
and now’s so hard to draw a breath
so I hope that you’ll forgive me
when I have nothing left

my life’s been drained of all color
and I am cold but I cant sleep
instead I close my eyes again
and allow my soul to weep
just allow my soul to weep

did you ever love me
or was it just someday
to save your fantasy
so much safer that way

than to ever have to know love
or a passion that could burn
we sacrificed our true love
for the lessons that we learned
what cruel lessons we have learned

My dearest darlingist

Open your heart
let the love in
Close your eyes
and surrender then
Perhaps one day
your soul will sing
And fill your life with joys
those songs can bring
