this love you found
it’s me through and through
it may be broken
but still my love
I give you me
it’s what I have
did I mislead your heart
with a look or promise
did I offer what I do not own
I want to, I do
apologies for all I am not

alone together

the rhythm of parallel lives

difficult to catch the pace

traveling together and alone

chopping through the wake of the crossover

goodbyes follow hello

our distant homes drive us forward

guided by the sunrise

filled as we can be

as empty spaces are part of the core

the roadmap is ours

and drawn as we travel

there is no ersaer

only nimble toes to navigate the terrain

A Real Beauty

with a smile that brightens my every day

with a heart always open to all in need

with a true soul that guides confidently towards the unknown

with love for family and friends that refuses to be contained

with eyes that sparkle, light and comfort all around you

with strength that challenges the most arduous of test

losing some locks will not drain your beauty and fight

your overwhelming aura from within and around

continues to shine unmatched

hair will return to where the beauty is that never left
