It once gave you the wings to fly, then it took away your sky.

A need to survive.

The sky mirrors as a witness of your trials alone, on nights so dark they must not be shown.

All the tears you cried in silence.

All the pain you ever felt.

And all the isolation you had endured, even the times you wept, afraid and, alone.

My only wish was that your pain be mine.

I’m sorry I can’t turn back the time.

You were frozen by fear that you’d succeed but afraid you would crumble if you failed.

The heaviness you could not bear and the weight of it all broke you.

My heart hurts to remember but I cannot forget.

Falling and not knowing who would catch you, not knowing when HE warned.

Your fight was fought by you alone but little did you know God had already calmed your storm.

There were times you stumbled out of control.

And times that you really wanted to know.

Your spirit kept seeking light from the storm.

Obsidian Skies became a clue

That it might be a time to turn anew.

Its time for you to realize

God has given YOU back your sky.

You have been gone so long.

We wished You’re weren’t so far away.

We pray for you every night.

Joey prayed for you to come home today.

Well, I thought you might want to know that Joey graduated from kindergarten today.

His smile how it lit up the room.

He so reminded me of you.

All the other mom’s were there.

His teacher said sometimes he’s happy, but most the time he misses you.

Oh how we wish that you were there.

All the kids sang a song.

To thank the mom’s that came along.

But Joey didn’t participate.

He just sat alone.

And wrote you a little poem.

The teacher said he could read his now.

But Joey said he’s saving it for a special day.

When his mom comes home…

With every day that’s gone by,
another memory slips away.

All the springs, summers, and falls and, lonesome winters without you here.

My how time slips away…

Joey said to send his love.

His eyes filled up with tears as he looked at your picture on the wall.

I guess that’s how life becomes
When moms are sad the pain takes away all they had

And son’s dream their dreams at night.
And tears fall all winter.

And summer comes

And time just slips away…

She is unable to see her beauty
A mind in chains
Open your spiritual eyes
Only then will you see
An intelligent creative beautiful
Sunrise over the ocean sea
Lovely precious girl inside of thee
Daughter if only you could
You were created to perfection
That will always will be
I love you Sunshine
Become that brilliant sunrise
Glowing forever over the ocean sea
Yourself free…





Why do you not reveal truths
Is your conscince clouded by lies
Would revealing increase your pain
Leaving blood stains upon your hands
Reflections pique obligation
Naught yours to own
Set yourselves free
Hell is not your Hearthstone
Your pureness crys out
Two angel’s bound by lies
So marvelously created
Open your eyes
Screams of terror fade with illusion
Cease running return to love
Where snow crystals dwell
