Love Birds

DownUp +23

Two birds by the shore, watching the sky above
So young and innocent, yet so in love
Seeing the sun sinking in the horizon
Worried yet glad for who-knows-what reason

“Where should we stay? It’s getting dark.”
“I don’t know. Maybe by the fountain at the park?”
A playful peck from the girl with feathers that glow
A feeble smile from the boy “It’s far, I know.”

A place to rest was hard to find
For tireless dangers that linger in our minds
But by the soothing midnight music of the shore
Ignites their hearts, setting fire in their very core

Witnessing the moon’s silver beauty from afar
Circled and bathed by all the glistening stars
Beside him, the girl lay fast asleep
Caressing her young wings and its tip

Laying back brought a sudden ache from his own
A wound from his young right wing that reaches the bone
“I wish I was careful, wish I was aware.”
Glancing back despite the pain “Thanks for the care.”

The night went on with the shore’s musical essence
A midnight breeze, her eyes did open
Seeing the boy cozy and asleep beside her
Asleep with that mystifying smile, yesterday as he were

Wrapping him by her young and beautiful wings
Protecting that wound that came from a powerful fling
“Even though we’re like this, you still care.”
“Thank you for always being there.”

With that she closed her hopeful and teary eyes
Waiting for the moon’s goodbye
Drifting off to a dream where they were able to kiss the sky
A dream where they were able to fly.

Sunrise

DownUp +17

The warmth and beauty of sunrise
Reminds me of your disguise
To these chocking words that I concede
Confused if goodbye is what I need

Every time I think of this each sleepless night
Makes me loose my sense of wrong and right
Even though I try so hard darling
I always end up in my suffocating room crying

How could a plain and simple girl like you
Makes me fall in love so deep
How could everything you do
Makes it so hard for me to breathe

I should have known this wasn’t real
And let you know the pain I feel
Was it a mistake to make you my star
‘Cause I ended up tending these undying scars

I wanna throw away this life I led
And be asleep forever on my bed
For I am nothing but a mess of a dreamer
With the nerve to miss your voice so tender

Gazing back to the beauty of the sunrise
Where there, my past hope lies
Waiting for another life reason to rise
Wanting to find another meaning of that sunrise

Family

DownUp +31

Laying here,
Beside you,
Watching you breathe,
And hearing your heart beat..

Tears fill up my eyes,
I put my hand next to yours,
You roll over,
And smile with pride..

We glance at each other,
And get lost in each others eyes,
And look in the other direction,
To see a crib where Zoey lies..

Her soft light brown hair,
Pressed against her cheek,
Her little blue eyes sparkling,
And she was ours to keep..

She stood up on her little bitty feet,
Put her hands on the rail of the crib,
You smile and go to pick her up,
But before you could, she made a leap..

She cuddled up in your arms,
With her head lying on your shoulder,
Her little baby hands against yours,
You couldn’t stop holding her..

She slowly drifted asleep,
Holding you close,
You looked at me,
And was happy that it was her we chose..

The Special Day

DownUp +9

I woke up this morning,
And hopped out of bed
I started to get ready,
Because soon I would be newly wed

I hurried up,
And got to the beach
I began to put my dress on,
As I heard people preach

The music started to play,
I put myself in my place
Started walking down the aisle,
With my eyes glued to your face

I got to where,
We were standing side by side
I began to think,
And started to cry

We said our vows,
Slowly to one another
And got lost in each others eyes,
We didn’t want this moment to be over

The preacher said,
You may kiss the bride
You moved the veil away from my face,
And it was me that you would find

As the moment ended,
You swept me off my feet
It was me that you wanted,
Forever and ever to keep…

Done

DownUp +11

Contemplate
Sure!
But there’d still
Be too much left
to say
left to write
left to know.

Fake me out
Sure!
But I’ll still
Know the truth hidden
deep
in your mind
in your heart.

Flirt around
Sure!
But your heart
Will slowly start
to crumble
to shatter
to break.

Apologize
Sure!
But I won’t
Listen to what you
what you think
that you want.

Forever

DownUp +17

Her love must’ve been something
Misunderstood
And it should
Of been
Frankly, it wasn’t.

His love must’ve been more like
Cinnamon twits
Thought she’d just take a bit
Then
She couldn’t resist.

Their relationship wasn’t
Easy to read
And he wished maybe she’d
One day
Gaze in his eyes.

Her view on that subject
Was undecided yet
Was badly tormented
She guarded
Her heart.

The problem with letting go
And giving no thought
Was she just might get caught
Up and
Be tricked..again.

He didn’t know that she was
Broken inside
And was
Trying to hide
All the pieces.

Then he looked in her eyes
Saw her
Shattered soul
Time had taken its toll
On her.

So he vowed that he’d save her
Put her back together
Get in her lovely weather
And love her.

Forever.

When you’re around…

DownUp +56

Blush, what I do when you’re near,
Butterflies, what I get when you’re here,
Quiet, how I get when you’re around,
Because when you’re close I’m spellbound…
