1999

I wonder what Love is
Is it just a word,
a way of sharing life's hardships
with another?
Is it the feeling of belonging?
not being alone?

I once thought I knew love
but it seems to have escaped my grasp
it has no meaning
just an endless void
unfulfilled dreams
shattered by reality
that is what love is

Wind
whipping at my back
pushing me onward
carrying me

Sunshine
warming my face
nourishing my soul
sustaining me

Rain
drenching my body
removing the tarnish
cleansing me

Moonlight
casting shadows
hiding the flaws
protecting me

1997

Fortune favors the brave.
