I am extremely excited for Christmas. I don't know why I'm so excited. I just am. I can't wait for the holidays. Christmas songs on the radio. Wearing two pairs of pants and at least three shirts plus a jacket. That much closer to getting a car. Seeing that A on my transcript. Making snow men. Decorating. Gifts. Ridiculous traffic. Buying tissues every time I go to the store. I can't wait!

Gone in the current

gone in the current
over rock and ridge
across valley and plain
watching sunsets and surises
away from the pains of life

I need you

I see your name
I want to hear your voice

I read your words
I want to see your face

Comfort in a losing battle
Support in every choice

Don't forget about me
I don't want to be erased


A change in the breeze
A directional shift
New places to visit
A new way to drift

A whisper on the wind
Tempting me to follow
Passing people and faces
Eyes completely blank and hollow

Catch me on the current
Hold me in your heart
Though the wind pulls us
It can never tear us apart.

It starts with a seed
It's what they all say

Water it,
Watch it,
Weed it,
It will grow

An acorn
A flower

a garden?
a field?
a plantation?

Too late,
It's fall
No more growing
Only harvesting


I love you

Ride the wind
Let it all go by

Don't look back
Feel the sky

Count each star
They're yours

Forget the past
And all the horrors

Listen to me speak
Hear my heart beat

I love you

If I could touch the sky,
I would

If I could catch a star
I would

If I could swim the seas
I would

You thought I couldn't
But I could

I thought you wouldn't
But you did

The sky is too far
I can't catch a star
And the seas are too deep
But you are mine to keep

Hold my hand
Let's catch the breeze

Say my name
Under the trees

Kiss me softly
I ask, Please...
