Breathe to Dream

April 15, 2015

Writing helps me breathe
Like carbon for the trees
I take the bad
And turn it into good
Internalize it all
Just like you knew I would.

Trees and birds passing notes
I’ve got this place that no one knows
They’ll never find us there
So leave behind your worldly cares.
This is where yours and mine,
They can unite
And all our dreams can finally fly.


Bridging the Gaps

January 31, 2012

We can build this bridge together
And let the water flow below
It doesn’t matter where the tide turns
So long as we both know
All that is behind us
No need to dredge it up
We can bail ourselves out
With our overflowin’ cups

Life has given us this gift
So let’s not turn away,
Instead, turn our faces to the sun
And live a better way

I feel the island waves
Pulling me back to that place
Where we all lived
Givin’ what we had to give
Livin’ on a Canadian dream
Takin’ life for hard as it seemed
Lookin’ back on all that now,
I can’t help but laugh out loud –
We were so young
And so quick to come undone.

Together we built a legacy
That will last as long
As the deep of the sea
There ain’t no turnin’ back
Though I wish that
We could all live and replay
Those carefree days.

This is who I used to be
The girl you never got to see
I’m reclaiming a piece
At a time
No more trying to please
Any needs but mine.

The rain sings me its lullaby,
No stars in the mid-night sky
As I lay in my bed and close my eyes

I feel a tightening in my soul
Seems my heart is overgrown
Can your love set me free
Break on in, and we’ll soon see

You weren’t just fodder
You were inspiration
Fuel for the fire
And the dreams I’ve been chasin’
