I’ll Stay

I’ll hold your hand
when your family’s not here,
to comfort your death during
this quarantine my dear.

I know you don’t understand
what this lock-down has done,
you’re simply confused and scared
my sweet demented one.


But one visitor a day
is all that’s allowed,
and sadly you’ll get none
for the fear that surrounds.


So lay down your head
and close those tired eyes,
I’ll stay here with you
til your final goodbye.

Where Love Lies

I just finished a book that literally felt like my own personal memoir…

I have read thousands of books… thousands… and I have never ever read a book where the characters, plot lines, and relationships were so unmistakably similar to my own life and relationships. It’s even more mind blowing that a simple novel could have that much impact on me believing that I have indeed made the best decision in my life.

After reading this book (and heavily reflecting on my life this last year) I can say this…

Sometimes a person’s judgement’s can be severely clouded by moments of “what ifs” and “maybes”. Sometimes you can share a beautiful moment with someone and wonder if there could be something more.
And sometimes it is OKAY to wonder if you chose the right path in your love life.

But then you have to step back, get out of that moment, look at the big picture, and see everything that you could lose just by walking away with someone new.

Reflection complete.



Let Me

Let the undertow
take me,
sweeping away
my sins…

Let the waves
crash around me,
smothering from
within…

Let me fill
up my lungs,
as I come
up for air…

Let me know
I’ll survive,
as long as
you are there.
