Sometimes I can't sleep, Sometimes the memories overwhelm my being and I am lost in the misery of what isn't and what wasn't and what wouldn't ever be

2004

Sunday night, with an unfinished list of things yet to do before the morning light. I look up and see his picture still setting there and wonder if and when I'll ever put it away, wondering if and when I'll ever stop loving him.

2003

reflections, of the mind, of the heart, of the actions, of the motive
reflections, of the soul, the inner spirit, the inner who inside of each
reflections, choices, directions, and turmoil

2002

Speak from the heart. but where is my heart tonight, it is somewhere on the third floor, or anyhow that is where I believe it to be. Where in my chest my heart used to beat I find a hollow place, my heart was given with trust and faith, and belief, but yet as time passes, I find it going further away from me. I find I am a stranger in myself, I hold onto the lingering memories, I cherish the past as though that is where I live with love and smile and happiness, but now there is no hear t in me for I gave it to someone else. I hope and pray that when and if they no longer want it that they will tell me so, so that maybe I will know to give it as freely as I have this last time. I heard my song today the I'm the fool one. oh how it is still true almost a year later. and as I expect it will always be so.

2000

Longing for something never known, a love so true, with no lies, or untruths. With respect and faith, dependence and independence equally bond. With trust and belief. A love so binding that no trials shall ever divide it. But I fear this is only a dream, and can not possibly be.

1999

When he questioned
doubted and pried
I felt so much less
all I did was cried
it was all honesty
but still he felt I'd lied
and all my hopes faltered
then was when love died

1998

Reaching for the light,
hearing them laugh
seeing their happiness
and knowing it can be mine

1997

The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation.
