At some point we were apart
running tracks along the same line,
traversing the spine
of the world
and as we lay and curled
through all the good
and the bad weather,
through time
those tracks
in the distance merged
as close
as they possibly could

End of Route


You did not break me…..
well, only for a while

I lost my will to live
but now I’ve found
my missing smile

The road has been
a long one,
full of darkness,
hate and fear

At times the shadows
claimed me
but somehow the road
began to veer

I am renewed,
reborn again,
no longer will I hide

This life is mine
to live again

I have found my inner pride.

Imaginary Snow

They say you should dance
as though no one is watching
and you should sing
as though no one is listening
so why not build snowmen
when imaginary snow is glistening
if your worlds collide
and seek out that dream inside
to prevent you falling apart?
Build up your courage,
and be only guilty
of following your heart.

Lost Cat







I searched through empty rooms
hearing always the purr
though I found nothing but empty space,
little lost lumps of fluff and fur,
so I stopped and stayed within the gloom.

I looked around at forgotten art
seeing always a smiling face
and seeing there a steady hand,
each line lining an accurate trace,
joy returned to my heavy heart.

But now the child’s drawing must do
in place of masterpieces of old
as my searching mind grows slow
and the warmth within me grows cold
to remind me of the lost cat I once knew.
