THE EMPTY CHAIR

Last night
Your chair was empty
But
Happiness
Sat in it’s place.

I saw eyes
Of darkness, disappear
Walls
Slowly coming down
Through tears of joy.

I always knew
You were special
Convincing you
Was
The hardest thing.

After many years
My prayers
Have been answered
You found
True love again.

These words
Come
With my love
From
An empty chair.

DAYS ENDING IN WHY

Yesterday
That
Happened.

Today
This
Happened.

Tomorrow
It will be
Something else.

Sometimes
The only question is
Why?

MY RAIN

In my rain
You are
My safety.

In my rain
You are
My protection.

In my rain
You remind me
I am wanted.

In my rain
You remind me
I am needed.

In my rain
You remind me
I am loved.

In my rain
You give me
A place to belong.

JADED MESS

These words
Are
For you
Whoever you are
On any given day.

You are
My positivity
In a life
That would sometimes
Otherwise, be a jaded mess.

KNOW, THAT

Late one night
Or
Early morning
My telephone
Rang.

Someone
Unknown
On the other end
Told me
To leave you be.

Just because
You don’t hear from me
Doesn’t mean
I don’t want to be heard
Know, that.

Just because
You don’t see me cry
Doesn’t mean
I don’t
Know, that.

Just because
You may think, I don’t miss you
Doesn’t mean
I don’t
Know, that.

Just because
You may think, I don’t love you
Doesn’t mean
I don’t
Know, that.
