My Heart Set Free


In a thousand years  
I could not have dreamed  
Of a heart so free 
In a thousand dreams 
I could not have hoped 
For a heart so free 
But here I sit 
And there it flies

An Angel's Tear


Too fill her with such joy 
To leave her overwhelmed in such a way 
That it streams down her face 
'Tis a joy unfathomed 
To have a tear fall onto me 
To catch an angel’s tear 
To know that it is me 
Who she leans upon 
That it is me 
Who she turns to 
For support 
That it is me 
Who she needs the most 
Leaves me 
Humbled 
And without words

I'll Give It No Place


Let the anger flow 
don't hold it in 
or so they tell me 
It's who you are 
if you hide it 
it will only boil over 
and come out anyway 

If that is who I am 
I want no part of it 
She will not hear it 
force its way out of my mouth 
or even out of my heart 
I will not feel that evil force 
tear into my heart 
and rend my soul in twain 

If that is who I am 
then I will gladly repress it 
drown it out 
and wipe it away 
I will not let her 
heart be shattered 
I will not hear that horrid sound 

If I must tear a part of me away 
to ensure that is never done 
then all the better 
for I want no part 
of that decimating force 
and I'll give it no place 
in the heart 
I've given to my 
Angel Queen

The Birth of Thought


Does it 
just spark 
from nothing 
Or is it 
shaped 
and 
meshed together 
from 
bits and pieces 
slowly gathered 
over time 
Is it given 
from on high 
or some other source 
Will it lift 
or will it destroy 
will it shape 
and create 
Will it bring more 
or is it 
the end

What Can I Learn


Shaped hopes 
and crafted dreams 
carefully planted within my heart 
driving me to some unseen goal 

I could choose my way 
I could choose to not follow 
but the dreams 
the hopes 
call me forward 

calling my heart 
calling my mind 
calling my soul 
calling me

every step I take 
every leap I make 
every bit I learn 
I find more that calls me forward

Because of You


Because of you I am more 
Because of you I can be more 
Because of you I will be more 
Because of you I can dream 
Because of you I can dream more 
Because of you I can see dreams come true 
Because of you my heart can breathe 
Because of you my heart beats freely 
Because of you my heart can fly 
Because of you I can love 
Because of you I can live 
Because of you I am

Sunday


It ends in y just like all the rest 
It starts with the rising of the sun 
And ends when it goes down 
Just like all the rest 
But to me 
There has always been something more 
It fuels all the rest 
It gives me strength to face 
Everything 
And really anything 
That may happen to come my way 
It may be just a day 
But to me 
It will always be more
