All Roads Lead Back To You

I followed many roads

thinking it was the way to go

in my mind it all seemed right

but my heart would always say “no”

ignoring that inner voice

as I continued plowing through

rocks and pebbles made me stumble

blinding my sense of view

those pathways I thought were meant for me

were really places untrue

and every stumbling block I encountered

made the journey hard to do

I fall, I failed, but I rise again

ready to start anew

those mistakes I made were blessings in disguise

for every road lead back to you

Timing is Everything

With a rainbow in the sky

and the promise of light

when our eyes first met

It just wasn’t right

Everything seemed good

as perfect as can be

but the problem was never you

it was always just me

These lifeless eyes blinded

by past fears and insecurities

never allowing love in fully

as it was intended to be

For the very wish longed prayed for

was the one I couldn’t see

distracted by other dim lights

but the brightest not worthy of me

and in regret I will entreat

that blind eyes begin to see

the beautiful truth I pushed away

that was always destined for me

Can life offer second chances

will grace be kind to agree

that rare kind of love that came into my life

was a missed opportunity

So here I am doing innerwork

to set my mind free

self-sabotage is real

it was never about you

it was always just me

You…

you are a blessing

It Rains in July

“You will evolve past certain people. Let yourself.”– Mandy Hale

When sunflowers bloom

And the grass grows knee high

Who would’ve thought

It rains in July

The warmth of the sun

As sparrows fly by

A turn of the weather

A final goodbye

The summer is ending

The ground has grown dry

This love has gone jaded

It rains in July

Hearts are now fragile

You turned a blind eye

The season is over

It rains in July

Conversation with the Moon

When I look upon the heavenlies
A sphere of radiant light
Splitting open the evening sky
An illumination so bright

In latin it’s name is “Luna”
In greek they say “Selene”
The time I’ve had
conversing with the moon
Revealing secrets unseen

New hopes & past disappointments
Dreams that reach sky high
Whispers of things that no one else hears
Just between the moon and I

For that orb of night
Shares a glimmer of light
For anyone who draws near thy
As twilight falls
Watching over thee
Goodnight, sweet lullaby

Crossroads

I arrived at a crossroad

where two paths diverge

one to the right and one to the left

never meant to converge

I’m blinded in seeking

which direction to choose

Do I use mind over heart?

the latter is justly pursued

So I take two steps forward

then one step back

finding freedom in movement

getting life back on track

Because what I thought was the end

has only just begun

new beginnings are waiting for me

this test in life I won

Sage

Ancient of days

what would you say

to the one who has passed you

along the way

Do you have tales

on men of old

who have traveled your path

as history unfolds

Have you seen war

tribulation and love

the chronicles of humanity

in the makings of

Memories as you’ve witnessed

the worse and best of mankind

recorded in the annuals of nature

and preserved throughout all time

Eden

A Mother’s Love

Not a day goes by

that I don’t think of you

imagining your sweet face

so pure and true

sometimes I wonder if you’d looked like me

the color of your hair

those beautiful eyes

the shape of your nose

or your tiny smile

I bet you would be sassy, spirited, and smart

just like your sister

Or adventerous, down to earth, and funny

just like your brother

Oh these thoughts of you

brings me joy

as I carry you in my heart

for one sweet day

I’ll see you again

my precious angel

my baby love

my little garden of Eden
