Little Hands

They look like tiny versions of ourselves and truly that is what they are, but at the same time they have so much personality all their own. They have this innocence that you can only possess when you are young. They have all these big concepts with such a tiny vocabulary, they find such interesting ways to show you what they mean. What a wonderful thing to be able to hold the world with such tiny strings.

Unfortunate Events

Sometimes the most you can do is hold your head up high and keep going. Sometimes you get through it simply because you have to, there is no other choice. Eventually things will change, you just have to be strong enough to wait out the bad times. Things have to break down in order for you to build them back up. Just remember when it hurts that I love you, and if you need it I've got this helping hand you can borrow.

Missing Something

I read the things you write, the words about your life and the people in it, though in all honesty I don't have to. I was there as they all happened. I read the things you write and notice I'm suspiciously absent, and I'm not the only one. I'm not hurt, angry or upset, I just find it fascinating what you keep in your heart at the end of the day. I've never seen someone embody so thoroughly every concept of missing something. You're looking in the wrong place for the right thing, It's like watching someone search for glasses they are already wearing.

I stand on the precipice of my future, knowing that when I jump everything will change. It looks like such a frightening fall from up here. Gather my courage, and if you have some to spare I'll take that too. One last look backwards, close your eyes, deep breath. I'm ready, it's time...

When You Leave

I will remember you.
I will keep you in my heart.
I will think of you often.
I will cherish the things you taught me.
I will hold on to the good times.
I will forget the bad times.
I will see you in places where you aren't.
I will have to find a way to go on.
I will comfort those who mourn you.
I will mourn you.
I will MISS you.

but most of all I will love you, always.

Four Letter Words

I love you. I'm not sure why it is so hard to tell you that. I can't say it out loud, I feel like I'm not supposed to. When I see you, I have this strong urge to hug you. I guess it's hard because I know you aren't there anymore, and I guess neither am I...

One Time Only

There are moments you get to experience once in a life time, they happen all the time if you are paying attention. I found three today, what did you find?

Close To My Heart

I keep you there a lot, my heart. The little things you do, the way you say your name, the meaning you put in everything you say, the careful way you choose your words, I love them all. I have this smile, I keep it just for moments like this, where I am my most joyful. This smile? It happens a lot when you are around. Thank you, for this particular smile, it belongs to you.

If Left Unsaid

I spend so much time not being able to tell you things, they build up until I'm sure I won't ever be able to live with all of them inside me. I guess that is the problem with surprises and keeping things to yourself. I would tell you, but my mouth is so full of all these things I cant say, the things I can are having trouble finding their way out.

A Few Well Placed Claps...

Yes, that is exactly how it would sound if my mood were audible. Thank you for putting my feelings into sounds. It's perfect, and I'm glad you understand.

Moonlight to Morning

And if after the moonlit dance of beautiful moments the morning brings an end, I will keep those moments close to my heart where the soft beat will keep them safe. And every now and then, I will bring my memories to life once more, if only for a moment, only while the moonlight shines.

Sometimes I wish it would rain here. Sometimes sunshine just makes things feel worse. Like you cant ever give it a break because the sun is shining and the birds are singing and who could be upset when things are so pleasant?

Four AM

You're changing things, every decision you make takes you down a path. You're changing things for me too, I worry you've forgotten that.
