You Don’t Know

You just don’t know… What is like to hurt, until you have heard your child say they hate you. What it is like to lose something, until you turn around in the store and your 2 year old is nowhere to be found. What it is like to love, until you give it completely to... Continue Reading →


Up ahead it must be better Than all this confusion in my way. I only took the lighter path Because I couldn't stay.

Live Life

Dance in the rain With everyone watching. Date that girl At least ask her out. Mail that letter Without worrying about the response. Jump on that plane And just go. Buy that dress The one that matches your shoes. Sing a song The one that says what you can't say. Sell that car Because you... Continue Reading →

I Think of You

When the rains of change Beat on my face. When I can't face a day Without a ton of grace. When I drive along In my battered car. When the first thing I notice at night Is a brilliant star. When life is harsh It takes it course When the life in me Is my... Continue Reading →
