Love Letter, March 27, 2005


a simple letter,
filled with words
of love and passion
the phrases,
symbols of endearment
spill onto the pages.
it is impossible to put down,
hard to resist the happiness.
page after page
is romance at it’s best.
delicious emotions create a...

Let Go, April 25 2016


All the hurt I feel inside

Doesn't stop with tears I've cried

This I know because I've tried

But I just can't let it go


Anger builds inside of me

From the actions that I see

Hurtful words will always be

The thing I can't let go


And yet again, still I tr...

I'm Gonna Try, February 2, 2005


I woke up this morning,

Nothing too exciting

Nothing much is going on today

Except I’m gonna live.


It’s like my head is spinning

Spinning round and round

My feet are running ahead of me

And I can’t see the ground

Nothing can go my way

But I’m go...

This Is Where, October 24, 2004


This is where he used to sit

And he’d have so much fun with it

For this is where he used to swing

It used to be his favourite thing

He used to love to swing so high

He’d laugh out loud as he’d fly

Simple pleasure created a laughing fit

This is...

Nothing, November 13, 2004


I am not special

A forgotten toy that collects dust in a corner

I am nothing new

An old rumor that has lost its juice

I am unimportant

A file that keeps getting placed at the bottom of the pile

I am pointless

A TV show on a blank tape that has been...

He Doesn't Know, circa October 2004


Her eyes are blue

Like a cloudy sky

They’re shedding tears

Over a guy


And he’s at home and doesn’t know

How much she loves him so


Her lips are red

Like a bloody heart

They quiver and shake

Cause she’s falling apart


And he’s at home and does...

No Better Friend, October 11, 2006


There’s no better friend than a sister

For she’s there when you need her for sure

She’s not going to talk behind your back

You know what you tell her is secure


There’s no better friend than a sister

With her your closet doubles in size

Sometimes when you are a parent days blend in together, weeks and months are part of a fog of diaper changes, meals, bedtime stories, tantrums, forts and songs. Suddenly I look at my calender and I see it is no longer March but near the end of April. April... besides m...

Nap time! In other words free time. Although usually I myself partake in the napping. I am actually laying in our king size bed with my daughter beside me. Listening to her breathing on repeat. Remembering the sound and the bliss. Hard to believe Summer is almost upon...
