I am as deep as the sea
Depths of me most can not see
Maybe if I stayed afloat
They’d see more clarity
Instead I choose to go deep
In places most would not speak
Not because they cant
They won’t, but
They will envy
Blocked dreams,false teams
Especially foggy,and empty
Surface see through
Unsure what to do
Fear has set with the tide
while I enjoy the wave’s ride
Satisfied in the depths of my life.

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.
All day long I had no time to spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They’d laugh at me I’d fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord, I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book; It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
‘Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down…
But never found the time.

My own personal “Romeo”
Awaiting to hear that simple word
Hoping and determined to make me his “Juliet”
Arriving just in time to save my smile
Doubting his own confidence due to my rejection
Planning to show me his every dark corner
Praying that one day i will change my mind
On;y a small word has to pass through my lips
And my fairytale dream begins
Make all my mother’s dreams for me finally come true
A real-life princess in his obsessive eys
Wanting to obey my every single command
Clinging to my hip every single second
But my mind dead-set on my final answer
His heart lies shattered in front of my face
There’s already one “Romeo and Juliet” in my family
Sadly no guilt lies on my lonely heart
Nice guys don’t finish last, they just fall for the wrong girls
He wanted so bad to be my Prince Charming,
but didn’t come prepared Basically,
i’m hard to figure out and
I’m waiting for the one who can.

Words can never express
What you truly mean to me
I thank God everyday
For the gift he made for me

Each daughter that we share
A sign of our love
Also another gift
From the man up above.

The little things in life
I’ll cherish the most
Your kiss in the morning
Our trips in the boat

The many sunset
You’ve held me in your arms
and swept me away
with all of your charms.

There’s nothing better than game day
watching our team play
Rooting for the team
with the man of my dreams

I’ll love you forever
and always some more
By your side is where
you’ll find me forever more.

You once said, I was somebody you’d always wanted.
The most perfect man.
You once said, I was that guy you had hopes for.
That amazing man.
You said I was your wish, upon a star.
You said I was the one, you dreamt from afar.

But it was all a fairy-tale; you had planned out before.
It was everything make- believe, and nothing more.
Nothing is so simple; Life is so very real.
Things don’t come so easy; It was a fairy-tale.

You once said, I was your knight in shining armor.
Here to rescue you.
You once said, I was an angel from heaven.
Here to love you.
You said I was a dream, coming true.
You said I was that life, you always knew.

But it was all a fairy-tale; you had planned out before.
It was everything make- believe, and nothing more.
Nothing is so simple; Life is so very real.
Things don’t come so easy; It was a fairy-tale.

It was a fairy-tale in the making, just a dream.
Everything was a perfect picture, so it did seem.
It was all a fairy-tale. It was all make believe.
In the mind of someone so very naive.

It’s been almost 9 months,
And tomorrow it will be,
Nine amazing months.
Of you and me.

When I first met you,
I thought we would be together forever,
But here I am now,
Possibly writing my last goodbye letter.

I know you don’t want to have this,
But please take it from me,
It is just you that I will always miss,
The memories of you and me.

I love you is what I used to say,
For me there was no other
Because you were on my mind,
I hope i can say I love you on Christmas Day.

Now this one promise I made to you,
And this one promise I will keep:
“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you always,
because no matter what, my baby you will always be.”

Past time seems
as if everyday
was yesterday
Remembering the smiles
Laughing at old jokes
thinking of watching the clock
Waiting for it to hurry
Wanting it to stop
Some days like syrup
Movements slow and clumsy
The slow moving clock face
In a mocking pout
Other days seem as if hours were seconds
As if the breeze picked up time
And blew it along in the wind.
