The holidays…

I have been doing a lot of listening this year . Many people talking about the economy and how Christmas is going to be just horrible because there isn’t enough money. Some people have lost their jobs, their homes and practically everything they have other than each other. There are people who have lost everything and have no family at all. They are stuck with no place to go and no one to fall back on. Long before cable and ipods – there were porches and conversations and family dinners together. There used to be a sense of togetherness. What happened to all of the little things that made a family? When did this season become so commercial? When did happiness become so expensive? I just wish we’d all look around and see the real things we should be thankful for. Be grateful for the little things… sometimes they are bigger than you’d imagine. Hug the people you love and be delighted for your time with them. Instead of worrying about the expensive gift you need to buy try giving from the heart.. really pay attention. Sometimes the perfect gift is not what you buy. Give a little of yourself. Everyone wants a change – what are we willing to do to get it? Do something nice.. even if it’s little - it’s a start. Maybe it will cause a domino effect. Hey it could be catchy. We’ve all been over indulged for so long it’s affected our standard of living and it’s skewed our view of what happiness should be. It’s amazing that it takes economic devastation to bring some true meaning back to Christmas.

you & I

finely lined
etched writing on stone
this parody
you play the only role
take my hand
you'll never hold my heart
I see past you
here I am
Playing along
time and time again
this gimmick
you should change things up
hold my hand
please tell me more lies
biding my time
carrying out the pantomime


the days run together
paint dripping in the wind
dismal colors
it's night again
over and over
I know it will never end
I'm not where i belong
no road feels right
the sun never touches my face
you are gone
fast forward; rewind
things look dissimilar
standing this far away
always waiting
looking at your life
I know what you meant
this doesn't feel like home
wash me away
Drown it out
I can’t hear what you say
Caught up in the sound
Live again
Revisit the lost and found
Here we are; where we’ve always been
Beyond the glass I don’t care what you say
Envelope my mind
Pull me in Don’t let me press rewind
Time I don’t want to slip way
Now that I found you I just want you to stay
