Meaningful Words

This poem is dedicated to all the courageous chronic illness and emotionally ill people who have tragically lost friends. To all, those who have encountered broken promises. You are so much stronger than you will ever understand.

Meaningful Words:

Don’t say I love you

If you’re going to walk away

Don’t say you care

If you’re not going to be there

 

I have heard it all before

No strength to listen to the lies anymore

You can just walk away

No one is making you stay

 

Walked out in my time of need

Refuse to plead

Don’t say you care

If you’re not going to be there

 

I am strong I will

I will just move along

Surviving without you

There is nothing I can do

Wounds

Wounds cut so deep

Pierced skin

Pain endured for all His sheep

Washed away all their sin

 

Wounds that blood poured from

The cup that couldn’t be taken away

Beating till he went numb

Knew he had to stay

 

Wounds of unknown pan

Took a sinless man’s life

The Father cried through rain

Finally struck with a knife

 

Wounds that heal

Wounds that gave

Wounds that took my sin away

Wounds of love

 

Yesterday Somehow Faded Away

Dainty soft pink slippers twirling high on toes few doors remained closed life an open book

Tapping rhythm to a new song always found a safe place to belong never even had to look

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and teardrops

 

The whole world lay in my back yard the only attack needing to be dodged was by dragons

Only things exist are what we created, only innocents of the wild imagination

Exploring wonderland unplanned adventure in all kinds of weather

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and teardrops

 

The world seemed against me could not yank free from the chains, oh the lies being fed to me

Unknown sadness filled my eyes had no reason but no choice I had to cry

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and teardrops

 

Finally I belong; these memories blanket my soul uncovering things that were buried in that hole

Overwhelmed with agape to the point of speechlessness anointed with blessing

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and teardrops

 

Oceans away miles apart I long for the peace cover in that place the ground covered in grace

It is how I escape all the troubles of the world love falling like rain soaking everyone in its embrace

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and teardrops

 

Only pictures remind of the past, memories fade with rain cause we know they never truly last

Pain consumes every inch of my being prying me away from the life that once was

Learning to dance in the storm though I pray for life to return to the norm

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and tear drops

She is the Clay

Tears have made her face moist

She’s longing to hear your voice

Seeking guidance to make a choice

She’s waiting day after day

Knows you are the potter and she is the clay

Things will fall into place in your time

Not alone in this climb

You’ll get her out of this bind

Let her know you’re near

There’s nothing to fear

Make her path clear

Gonna Break

How much more can I take?

Before this weak body breaks

I know I am strong

But now it is getting harder to move along

Harder now to hide the pain

To force the smile, slap on the mask

Starting to fall faster and faster… here comes the rain

Energy wasted on a smiple pointless task

Don’t bother asking how I am

Surely I will lie, don’t need the sympathy

What they don’t know won’t hurt them

I’ll be fine on my own
