Once More

Each night I long 
to hear your voice
once more,

To hear your sound
advice when feeling

I gaze out the window
and view the moon
in the navy sky,

Feeling your presence
surround me, knowing
you are with me

That very moment,
yet the longing

Late Rainfall

The rain taps against
the pavement relentlessly
the late summer day.


Never Look Back

Slowly, steadily,
she rose from the mess
she's dwelled in for so long.

She walked across the room
in disbelief that she's lived in
such ruin for so long.

She reached for the
doorknob, seeing a beacon
of light through the slats.

She threw open the door and
walked out into the light,
never looking back.

Just when I thought
the thread was frayed

beyond repair,
you came along,

gently lifted it
and smoothed the edges,

helping me heal
the damaged line

of friendship.

Calm Day

A day spent sharing
wishes and dreams for our lives,
waiting to take flight.

Bringer of Silence

The rain brings moments
of calm in a normally
chaotic city,
Loud sounds and activity
momentarily silenced.

Seeking Out

Finding that special
someone takes time and patience,
it takes that perfect
moment when destiny takes
you toward that path to the other.

Greatest Need

We are afraid to
spend our lives alone, yet friends
and family are there
to support us, comforting
in times of our greatest need.



I am unaware 
of what my future holds, but
I rise to the day.
