“Inhale/Exhale”
completed on 2.26.17

sometimes this life can be so rough
like sandpaper tearing
the skin right off of me
open wounds and an open heart

the sadness falling
saline rolling down my cheek
the weight of life’s responsibilities
crushing all my dreams
give me relief, throw me anything

sometimes life’s expectations
a rope slipping, a rope tightening
the lifeline in your embrace
your breath, the air my lungs need
the sunshine your love feeds me

this life can be so rough
pins and needles and heartache
but i’ll keep on fighting
’cause your love gave me a heartbeat
your love a reason to breathe
your love pushed life into me

“The Best is Yet to Come”
completed on 7.20.11

i can’t get enough of your smile
and i can’t get enough of your laugh
i love when i look in your eyes
i see all that we could be

i picture our first date
the one where i stay up all night hoping
we’ll end up holding hands
and i dream of our first kiss
the same one i’ll feel when we’re dressed in all white
dancing throughout the night
i look forward to all the memories we’ll share together
to the life and laughter we’ll create with one another
that’s all i’ll ever need

my body is here
but i’m already mentally there
to the place where
i’m on your couch
sitting next to the one that i love
i don’t have you yet
that’s why the best is yet to come

i watch the joy in your eyes
as you see everything for the first time
i watch you take your first step
with my hands right by your side
i’ll tuck you in at night
kiss you and be your nightlight
you’ll grow up so fast
but you won’t ever have to ask
’cause i’ll always be there for you

my body is here
but i’m already mentally there
to the place where
i’m on our couch
sitting between the ones that  i love
i don’t have that yet
that’s why i know the best is yet to come
