I Captured A Butterfly In A Jar
I captured a butterfly in a jar
I danced around in the grass for hours
Chasing it down stumbling falling laughing
Making the chase the most rewarding
...
2.
Blow Out The Candles...Make A Wish
I blow out the candles for you
Before the wax drips down on the frosting
It’s your birthday today
And the ritual has begun again
...
3.
Big Shoes
I remeber how it was when you were still around
I had not a care or worry in the world
I could do anything that I wanted to
Becasue you always took care of me

4.
Full Moon Love
Moon light shatters the sky, pushing back the dark
Keeping at bay all those harbored fears of the night
The sound of waves crashing far below on cliffs
Powerful rhythm of tide moving rock and earth
...
5.
Understand My Way
I know the truth is hard to see
When you make it up like me
And you will think back to these days
Never to understand my ways

Try It Again
Landslide buries
The weight is overwhelming
Breath comes short
I set up my walls

I stumbled across your profile
To be honest I went looking for it
I guess because I wanted this pain

The Scary Night Sky
the great expanse
of the night sky
consuming darkness
pin holes of light

Can I Find The Patience
Can I find the patience to wait these last few steps?
I have had such a long journey thru time, space and pain
Suffering that no one should ever be subjected to, most of it self inflicted
And yet here I am on the precipice and I can’t seem to sit on my hands
...
10.
The Pizza Incident
And now you sit there like a Bastion of grief
Covered with a look of indifference to hide your sorrow from me
But you wear it out unaware, just like this heart on my sleeve
If you could see into my soul you'd know how bad I hurt
