Happy Birthday

I have written creatively for as long as I could hold a pencil. These are two fairly old poems written in honor of my mom for her birthday, today. I could not have asked for or dreamed of a better mother. God has truly blessed me. She has been with me for every appointment, ER trip, urgent care trip, every test, and every surgery. Sh She is a huge encouragement and the source of strength. I am blessed that she introduced me to the Lord and raise me in a church. Thank you will never be enough. Happy Birthday, Mom!

Fancy dresses princess messes

Twirling on toes

Bubbles to blow

Picking flowers as laughter showered

 

All part of the little girl I once was

Butterfly kisses before

Bedtime prayers

Daddy’s little girl

Mama’s little helper

Innocent

Curious mind

Carefree girl in a perfect world

 

Even though times seems to fly

The years go by and by

Simply in a blink of an eye

Memories engraved are meant to last

Of the little girl, I once was

Spreading my wings I fly

Far way and so many things

But I’ll never forget the little girl I once was

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 covered 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 teardrops

“You love your parents, but as you get to know them you fall in love with them.” I believe this quote is absolutely true. As a child, our parents are heroes. As teenagers, we drift away from our parents. We are so consumed with our lives, we don’t take enough time to get to know our parents and cherish the small amount of time God lends them to us. I cherish the time I have with my parents.

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

Not fine

She seems fine

Her smile shines

Proves she is all right

Put on the mask

To hide all inside

To be strong

Cannot seem to find the words to her song

Her hearts been wandering for miles

Though she tries to smile

None sees the tears she cries

Wishes she could fly

To escape all her troubles

Memories Replay

Memories replay

Of dark gray days

Standing in the rain

With all the pain

Never forget

Every moment that took your breath away

When there was nothing to say

The scars are still there

Know that he cares

Safe in his arms

Away from harms

She told her everything will be okay

Sun will start shining brighter today

She is loved and accepted that’s where

She belongs

They’ll help her thought the rain

A Reason Why

Maybe there is a reason

For all the storms in life

For all the tears we cry

Maybe there is a reason

For every season

Why flowers bloom

Leaves glide

Snow blankets the Earth

And the sun warms our hearts

Maybe there is a reason

I’m alive

Maybe I have a purpose

Maybe I could change a life

Have you ever thought maybe just maybe

There’s a reason why the sun rises and sets

Why people go through hard times

Why you’re alive

Maybe just maybe there is a reason why

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

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 tear drops

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 wonder land unplanned adventure in all kinds of weather

Feels like just yesterday somehow it just faded away

Now I lay counting laughter and tear drops

The world seemed against me could not yank free from the chains oh the lies being feed 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 tear drops

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 tear drops

Oceans away miles apart I long for the peace coved 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 tear drops

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

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

War Wtihin

My body has declared a painfully hatred war

Abruptly, opportunity slammed the door

Unprepared for the overwhelming sea of emotions

Will someone give me a reason for devotion?

Not all butterflies are pretty

Fighting a unique battle daily

Finding more strength than imaginable

Longing to be normal

Can anybody hear me?

An icy frighten tear escapes once again

Knowing there is no way I’ll ever mend

Shades of gray surround me

Longing to fly away to somehow become free

Not all butterflies are pretty

Fighting a unique battle daily

Finding more strength than imaginable

Longing to be normal

Can anybody hear me?

It’s worse than the flu on steroids, agonizing deep pain

Realizing I’m locked in these excruciating chains

The monster is awake, destroying all in its path

Let me fall into a deadly sleep to escape its wrath

Doubt consumes me, frustration overflows to tears

Screaming I attempt to give up

Pulling me gently, my friends remind me, I’m never alone

Showering me with encouragement, I continue

Not all butterflies are pretty

Fighting a unique battle daily

Longing to be normal

I am stronger then my illness, I will survive this
