"As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
- Isaiah 55:10 -

dreams is all I have
dreams held in faith
dreams lasting through belief
dreams carrying me by hope
dreams holding the pieces together

it's funny how I don't really exist. I called in sick to work today, but no one checked to see if I was okay or not, not a soul have I seen today, not a voice have I heard today, not even the wind knows if I am here or not.

words should be silent
and love should be the only thing heard

Little birdie on your nest
do you never tire?

Little birdie on your nest
do you find your rest?

Little birdie on your nest
do you know your children's sire?

Little birdie on the nest
do you find me a pest?

I wish I knew your thoughts, and what they are of, Do you ever think of me as I do of you, Do you carry my words with you as I have yours? Do you smile at a thought? I often wonder where your at and what your doing. I wish I knew your thoughts.

Lost memories
that is what a day not recorded is

sometimes the memory may resurface but the when, where, and all the facts are lost in a haze of our other memories. Sometimes I'm asked why do I write here everyday. The answer is simple it keeps my memories for everyday safe, in a place where I can recall them at will. It allows me to reflect on the good and the bad. Things I felt and where my mind was then. It gives me direction sometimes helping me make sense of the chaos that the world throws at me. Yes my thoughts are important to me, if no one ever read these pages it would be fine. For My thoughts are my way to find healing from long ago wounds that I never allowed to heal.

For My Thoughts saves my memories

Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.
