A small girl’s white dress lays in the meadow

Surrounded by buttercups and daises, lilac and dandelions

Sunlight streams down upon it from a break in the clouds 

Then the light fades as if the sun is displeased

 That no little girl is in the dress.

 
 
A river of ink
flowing through my veins
reaching heart, mind
and soul

A river of ink
flowing through my veins
capturing pain
, joy 
and love

No,
I don't know how to renew a metro card
but I can ride a horse,
western, english, side saddle,bareback
and I know how to shoe them
No,
I don't know what to do if I get mugged
but I can 
help deliver a foal, calf, puppy, puppy, kitten
and I can bottle feed them all

No, 
I don't know how to hail a taxie
But I can drive,
automatic, stick shift, truck, car or tractor
and I can drive a pony cart
No, 
I don't know what to tip a NYC waitress
but I can cook,
plow a straight line, shuck corn, string beans, gut a pumpkin
and I can hand milk a cow

I don't know how to survive in New York City
But I can learn

 
 
Exert: 
Like a fairy tale dance
Every step,
Every tilt of the head
Together,
Entirely focused on each other



 
 
Trying to escape is worthless
It's like trying to breath
underwater



 
 
I feel like lead.
I can't dance
I can't sing
I don't sleep
I don't dream
I don't laugh 
I don't smile
All I do is cry
Why must it be up to me to decide
When I can let you go 
and let you die.
 
 
I wish I had 
been there the 
day he died
to hold his hand 
while away form him 
his life was pried

I wish I  had
been there
to say good-bye
to stroke his cheek 
as he took his last sigh

I wish I had 
been there
to tell him all 
he'd meant to me
he's the hero I wish I could be

I wish I had been there the day he died.

Picture
I came home
                         and you weren't here
to greet me

We ate watermelon
                                      and you weren't here 
to share it

We went to the fair
                                      and you weren't here 
to play

I fell down the stairs
                                       and you weren't here
to catch me

I went to a square dance
                                             and you weren't here
to dance with me

I was waiting for you
                                  and you weren't here
your gone




 
 
Let go
So I can rest in peace
Let go 
I promise you'll go on
Let go
I promise I'll be watching over you 
Let go 
I promise you'll never be alone
Let go
I promise I'll be waiting for you 
Let go
So I can rest in peace
