    No matter our situation or circumstance. Whether we are walking atop hope, full of peace, wrestling with fear, or overwhelmed with life in general...God is always present. In our victory and turmoil His concern and love for us never waivers. And through all my weeping, these roads paved with tears and joy, God has never failed me. Or forgotten me.

    God Is Still Right There

    in Faith Poems

    our weeping may only endure
    for the night, but
    even when joy finally drapes
    our sunrise

    God is still right there
    tenderly walking us through
    every whispered prayer

    Someone To Walk With Me

    in Short Love Poems

    I was never looking
    for another half
    to make me whole,
    just someone
    who was willing
    to walk with me
    no matter how far
    I strayed.

    I'm Busy Finding Me

    in I Miss You Poems

    I miss you in silence
    And every moment in between
    But I’m a little busy unfolding
    Those pieces of who I used to be
    I miss you at sunrise
    Until it’s time to greet the moon
    But darling,
    Don’t you see,
    I don’t miss you any less than yesterday
    I’m just a little busy
    Finding me.

    One has to find themself, I agree, and not be totally reliant on somebody. I know because I was never allowed to live freely; now my independence I treasure dearly.

    The Terrifying Thing About Love

    in Short Poems

    It is a terrifying thing
    to watch love
    walk in your direction
    when you believe
    you are not ready
    to receive it.

    In the same manner,

    it is quite terrifying
    watching love
    walk away from you
    when you are not yet ready
    to let go.

    There Will Be Days

    in Meaningful Poems

    There will be days
    when your heart will break.
    And there will be days when
    your heart will soar.
    There will be days when
    your heart will doubt.
    There will be days when
    your heart will believe.
    There will be days when
    your heart fatigues.
    There will be days when
    your heart pulsates thunder.
    You just keep going.
    Keep walking.
    Because that’s how we find
    beautiful places.

    Just The End

    in Breaking Up Poems

    I regret the end.

    The way we couldn't
    leave one another
    without wounds.

    The way we made
    it seem as if
    all the love we shared
    was wasted time.

    I often picture what it would be like to see you again. To hear your voice, or feel the weight of your hand in mine. I rehearse what I'd say to you, whether or not I'd tell you about the poetry, how I'd reply if you asked me if I was happy, yet.

    But the truth is I'll never tell you any of it. I won't call or find my way to your door. As much as I miss you, I know that you will want to love me - to pick up the pieces of me and hold them together, the way you always used to. And we'll end up back where we were, with you ignoring how much it hurt to try and love me - still giving even when there's nothing left for me to take.

    If we're honest, we both know you're better off without me. If I really want you to be happy, then I have to accept that it means being far away from me. So I will love you from a distance, even if that means you believe the worst of me.

    You're Better Off Without Me

    in Hurting Poems

    I’ve written you
    so many letters
    I won’t send.
    I’ve rehearsed
    phone calls
    and played out
    chance meetings
    in my head.
    And yet, I’ll never
    tell you any of it.
    Because I know
    (deep down)
    you’re better off
    without me,
    and I want you
    to be happy,
    whatever that means.

    I Want To Tell You

    in I Miss You Poems

    There’s so much I want to say to you,
    words I buried in my mind
    but when it’s time to sing the verses
    the melodies come out wrong.

    I want to tell you
    that I still miss you
    even though I know I shouldn’t.
    I want to tell you
    that I wish to hold you
    even though I can’t.
    I want to tell you
    you are the one
    even when you couldn’t be.

    But most of all
    I want to tell you
    that I love you
    and I never stopped

    But maybe one day
    you’d keep telling me, instead.

    Just Us Two

    in Passionate Love Poems

    Pull away the world
    so that it is just us two.
    Silence the chaos
    inside and outside our heads.
    Let us follow the purity
    of our foolish hearts
    if only for right now.
    Search my eyes
    for who we used to be.
    And when you find us,
    kiss my lips so hard
    that I believe
    the poetry is real again.

    Finding Hope

    Finding Hope In Unexpected Places

    in Short Poems

    I am learning to find hope
    in the smallest and most unexpected places
    like the whispers through the forest
    and the velvet evening sky
    and the way your love is bringing back
    all the parts of my soul I thought I had lost.

    This poem speaks to me. I really like it. We spend so much of our time focusing on things that really don't make life better and we miss out on many of the things that do.

    It is so important to always hold on to hope. You owe it to yourself, and by holding on to hope you are allowing things to unfold in such a way that you are more likely to come across brighter days.

    Better Will Come

    in Short Poems

    Have faith
    that although it may seem
    like the good has come and gone,
    there will be better.

    The better will
    enter your life suddenly,
    unexpectedly,
    taking your breath away.

    Just Tell Me You Don't Love Me

    in Confused about Love Poems

    Just tell me you don’t love me;
    I can live with that.
    I can acknowledge an ending when I see a period
    firmly in place,
    but you won’t do that, will you?
    No, you’ll let me down easy.
    You’ll hold my hand, and look into my eyes,
    and use one of those continuing lines,
    I want you, but…

    Don’t you know that but stands like a door
    without a handle?
    But looks like fresh cut flowers we pretend
    aren’t already dying.
    But feels like the false hope you hand me before
    you walk away.

    I like this one very much. Holding on to false hope will lead to real hopelessness. It takes a special talent to recognize when it's time to let go, and it takes courage to do it.

    You Have Shattered Every Memory Of Us

    in Hurting Poems

    You have drowned every emotion of us,
    Held it under water until it could no longer breathe.
    You have shattered every memory of us,
    Like glass, touching it I risk hurting every time.
    You have burned any future of us,
    Only left ashes of what could have been.
    We could have been great together.
    We could have made it.

    What I Would Have Done Differently

    in Life Lesson Poems

    There would have been
    so much I would have
    done differently
    if only I had known
    how beautifully
    it would all turn out.

    But, you see, if I had
    done even just one
    thing differently,
    it might not have

    One of the biggest things I’m learning about grief is how it demands different things from you every day. Some days, you’re able to get a lot done. You’re able to smile and be fully present with people. Everything feels fully balanced and manageable...steady. But other days, even normal daily tasks feel impossible to balance. And despite your best efforts, you can’t do it all. You try and build your schedule to match the day before, but it wobbles and leans and comes crashing down at your feet.

    Grief will demand different things of you every day. Some days will be harder than others, but please don’t be harder on yourself because of it. The harder days need the most kindness, the most support, the most gentleness. The harder days need the most grace. If today is a harder day, I’m praying with you. I’m hurting with you. I’m holding on to hope with you.

    Trying To Balance Grief

    in Grief Poems

    Grief stacks
    Itself up
    Up
    Up
    As you try and balance
    Your daily tasks
    Your emotions
    Your pain
    The tower
    Wobbles
    As you try
    To do everything
    You normally do
    Everything you
    Normally can
    But right now
    You can’t
    And it comes
    All
    The way
    Down

    Take A Bow

    in Inspirational Poems

    Take a bow, lovely one.
    Because you’re tired
    And still you’re doing it.
    You’re feeling empty
    And still you’re giving it.
    You’re unsure of yourself
    And still you’re being it.
    You got hit hard
    And still you’re healing it.
    Funds are low
    And still you’re dreaming it.
    Life ain’t so easy right now
    And still you’re loving it.
    The winds are blowing hard
    And still you’re walking it.
    Yes, take a bow, lovely one.
