2004

Today I am alone, I'm lonely. Today I want someone in my life, I want to share my day with someone, but no one is there. Is it my destiny to always be alone, to never feel arms circle me, hold me. Are my eyes never to see into the soul of another, like the picture I painted for us.

2003

I believe in love, the feeling that cannot be imitated, not the true feelings, the feelings that makes your world spin when it is shared and when it is given, and when it ends it destroys a part of who you have been.

2002

cleaver, but not good enough I know they walked my thoughts, sought my feelings, relished my pain and found that my heart had not yet gained, the independence from the love I have for the one who is no more in my life only my dreams.

The man who has no imagination has no wings.

Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.

1999

I was gone
I thought not to return
I thought to go forward instead of backwards
I thought of the days before
and the days to come
My mind wandered back again
to the pain
the heartache
the hunger
the hatred and the hurt.
the failures and all the feelings
do I take another chance
do I dare believe once again
shall I stay where it is safe
or face the fall?
Yes I'm scared of the unknown
and yes I do not know
for who are we to say what may come
for now only very small steps can be taken,
even circling to see
before the forward march continues
I need to know the directions
of my own mind, my heart, my inner self
but I am so lost inside of me
I can't figure it out
too many choices
to much fear
to much uncertainty

1998

A silent prayer
offered in thanks
of blessings given

Thanking the one
who blessed my world
with all it's wonders

Treasured memories
Past and present
Yet to come

Sights and sounds
smells and words
whispered in reverence

A Silent prayer
in thanks

1997

Beware of the half truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half.
