But I won’t do that…

the moment you realize what that is
in a Meatloaf song
is the moment after you’ve done
everything and that for love
and miserably failed at it

Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas Eve!!

This is my favorite time of year. It is a magical time.

This year feels even more special, I had a little bit of a miracle happen. I found the snowman ornament that I had made back when I was in kindergarten. It had a black top hat, a green flowery scarf, and red mittens and boots. I thought I lost it two or three years ago. I searched for it in every box, but couldn’t find it. It made me incredibly sad to lose something so special. But, something happened this year, without even trying, as I’m opening a box of decorations, I lifted the tissue paper, and there it was. My snowman. I cried. I cried so much. My daughters asked what was happening and I hugged my mom. We both understood the significance of that snowman. That was me, as a child. My dreams, my hopes for life, as I was just beginning mine. To lose it, was devastating and at the time, I was myself lost. But moving forward, my future has brought me back and brought me to the ones that love me. My snowman came back at just the right moment in my life. I feel so incredibly blessed to have my girls and my parents and to have peace and love in my home. I hung the snowman right in the center of the tree, with its black top hat and broad red-dotted smile, where it’s supposed to be.

I wish for you, your own Christmas miracle, peace and love within yourself and your loved ones.

Merry Christmas from my heart to yours.

an ode to my blue suede shoes

I’m not materialistic at all
and I don’t know how to write an ode
oh, but something about this pair
caught my attention
they’re classic
and modern
they make me feel
so much taller
like I can reach the heavens
but still walk this earth
with a devilish grin on my face
oh, I think I’m in love
with my new
navy blue suede pumps

forget we remember

on nights like this
when a gentle breeze
caresses my cheek
it makes me think
it makes me think

cold hands
warm cheek
eyes locked
parted lips

let’s forget we remember
let’s have an adventure
the night’s not over
not for us
we can be each other’s

whatever’s got you down
whoever’s holding you back
let’s forget we remember
let’s have an adventure
no one’s here but us

look at me
breathe in
and let go

the night’s not over
not for us
we can be each other’s

press your lips
against mine
let me softly place a kiss
look at the stars
let me gently breathe you in

will you forget all your worries
make room for this moment
can your heart be ready

whisper
yes
the night’s not over
not for us
we can be each other’s

a star

somehow
you made me feel
like a star
I shone
my brightest
in the midst
of all the darkness
all because
you looked
and kept looking
at me

do you hear that?

I’m not a brick layer
But I know the sound
When I lay a brick down

the next scene

This moment that I face
Could be my hardest yet
Time has passed
But my memory didn’t fade

I’ve seen this scene
Been the person across from you
Seen the hurt and pain
Thought of all the mistakes
And believed in the promises
That the ache would go away

This moment that I face
Could be my hardest yet
Time has passed
But my memory didn’t fade

I’ve seen this scene
Been the person in your arms
Seen the smile and heard the laughter
Thought of all the happy moments
And believed in the promises
That the ache would go away

This moment that I face
Could be my hardest yet
Time has passed
But my memory didn’t fade

I’ve seen this scene
Been the person crying on the floor
Seen the cracks on the wall
Thought of the empty picture frames
And believed in the promises
That the ache would go away

This moment that I face
Could be my hardest yet
Time has passed
But my memory didn’t fade

But my memory didn’t fade
Time has passed
The next scene I face
Could be my hardest yet

I haven’t seen this scene
Been the person standing on my own
Seen the horizon and felt peace
Thought of dreams and my purpose
And believed in my promise
That I would never ache again

My memory didn’t fade
Time starts now
The next scene I face
Could be my best yet
