When I let it all go…


When I let it all go,
I feel myself
No adjectives necessary
  I feel how I am supposed
to feel
I release all the baggage
I collected over time
and I had to let it all go
I’m sure I’ll keep a few reminders
and over time,
  it will all be a wiped memory
When I let it all go,
I want to remember what got me
to that place
like being my own life jacket
trying to stay afloat
And I float to stay alive
and keep moving to ease
the discomfort I feel over time

Waiting


Cars stop

Then go        

Lights changing with a chop

Leading to where the waters flow

 

Imagining the waves

Crashing without a shore

Searching for their faves

But me I want much more

 

Here I am

Waiting for them to take me in

Like looking for peace on the lam

Waiting here like committing a sin

 

Life without hope

Like I’m doing some dope

Waiting for a good day

When I can love my way

 

Add a touch of greatness

Not so hard when you know

Despite its untimely lateness

Telling the wind which way to blow

Where I Must Go


Wake up in the morning

I love to kiss your forehead

Today, tells a new story

It’s good you’re still in bed

 

Make the coffee

Before I butter some toast

Shouldn’t be so strange for me

When I know you do it most

 

I made a vow

Because I love you so

To keep you safe and happy somehow

So only you know where I must go

 

Working a simple nine to five

Is the least I can do

To keep this love alive

You loving me and me loving you

 

When the work is done

After the calls and deals are made

It’s back home to where I am someone

Making sure my debt is paid

 

You’ve been right by my side

Having my back in every way

You’ll never know the heavy ride

I must take every day

 

But that’s the least I can do

To show you I love you so

Someone’s blessed me with you

That’s why there’s somewhere I must go
