All Along

Moments –
Some come in
Some leave too soon

How long will one be around to hold?

Covering your ears
Ceasing the light in your eyes

Tearing down walls that all along were lies
You are beautiful
You are strong
You are more than you have known all along

What is a Poem (he asked)?

Anything you want it to be

It comes from deep within

Below the surface of your soul

A place in which maybe you have never been to before

A hollow heart is tough to carve out

So, until you find the printed bricks, the ones without a home, you can begin by placing them in their place

Your descriptive words will always create their trace

One by one – where flowing lines grow

Friday Night Lights

Jubilant company
A sip of wine
Clinking glasses
My sister
She brings out my shine

No dreary nights here
Live your life and live it oh so dear
Shine bright
Shine clear
and smile
Ear to ear



Compañía radiante de alegría
Un sorbo de vino
Gafas que tintinean
Mi hermana
Saca mi brillo

Ningunas noches tristes aquí
Vivo su vida y vivo esto ah tan querido
Brillo brillante
Brillo claro
y sonrisa
Oído a oído
