No need to explain

There’s no need to explain why I’m here
With you such small-talk is unnecessary.
You get me better than anyone
Yet with such intimacy
You never force me to stay.

You know it’s better
That I come in search of you
Than to have you come barging in my door —
It’s the only way I’ll fully appreciate your love.

You know I always come back,
I can’t stay away too long.
Your humility and grace are powerful;
I’m drawn to the peace that surrounds you.

I crave peace —
That satisfaction of solving the puzzle —
Perhaps because my existence
Is froth with complications.
Yet you seem to take delight
In seeing me in action
Trying to solve for “X”  —
The algebraic equation of my life.

You’re waiting patiently
For me to say it,  aren’t you?
Okay then,  well here goes…
I’m here because I missed you.
I will always come back to you
For in you I am truly alive.

Voices Upstairs

Voices upstairs, new to my ears.
You once spoke softly
In the wee hours of the morning,
Lovingly I assumed,
But now you yell,
Punctuating my morning slumber
With loud,  angry words
I cannot understand.

There is tension in my shoulders now,
Which travels down to my inner being.
It brings back memories of a time
I have long chosen to forget —
A time in my childhood I vowed never to repeat
But unfortunately could not escape.

To escape your loud rants though,
I rise and begin my day —
Praying for peace of mind —
My mind —
But perhaps I should pray for your peace as well.

Time passes —
I am no longer in my room,
And so your noise escapes me for a moment.
Then without really noticing,
There is silence again,
For it seems one of you
Has left for the day.

Gone one,
I silently wish your return be met with peace.
May you both rise tomorrow
Speaking softly like you once did,
In loving tones,
Reminding me of happier childhood times
When my parents carried on in like manner.
Well wishes to you both,  new neighbors …

Lyrics, Music is Oxygen

Ceasefire

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: Luke]
How do we save a life
Pointing fingers?
How can we end the fight
This way?
When blame is the truth we’re preaching?
And lies are what we’re believing?
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
Ceasefire

[Verse 2: Luke]
I will be the first to say
I’m far from perfect
But grace was made for those who don’t
Deserve it
So easy to cast the first stone
It’s harder to search your own soul
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

[Chorus: Joel]

One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire

[Bridge: Luke]
Teach us how to live humbly
Love unconditionally
Transform our hurt into hope
And grant us Your peace
(2x)

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire

The Fog

It rolled in three days ago,

Burning off by day,

Then descending again at night.

*****

It thickens with each passing hour,

As if to slowly wrap its arms around us —

Making its presence felt.

*****

Fog horns signal in the distance

And my young one imitates the sound

As I teach her of its importance to the ships at sea.

*****

I love living near the ocean;

It brings back lovely memories of my childhood —

Memories I wish surfaced more often.

*****

And to think I tried desperately to get a home elsewhere,

But the deal fell through.

Hmm…

*****

God works in mysterious ways!

I am in awe of HIS mighty wisdom.

I am so glad HE loves me — even through the Fog.

(My) Sleeping Beauty

Source: Yahoo images (www.blackcelebkids.com)
Source: Yahoo images (www.blackcelebkids.com)

I held you in my arms today
Waiting for you to wake up.
It’s been a while since I held you like this —
Watching you sleep,
Marveling at how much you’ve grown,
Thankful to be given such a gift.

Being with you like this is rare these days
Since you no longer stay still.
There’s so much you MUST explore
So much you MUST show me
Some much you MUST ask me
The only thing that silences you is sleep.

It’s amazing how it transforms you
From chaos to calm
So I can see my sweet angel,
My little princess, My treasure
Not the beast you pretend to be.

I’m sorry I’m always busy in your presence
I fear that you are learning
to not be still from me.
Even before you were born
I carried you with me —
Constantly moving,
constantly working, constantly busy;
In many respects you are me.

I am an army of one,
Never relied on anyone else
To do for me
What I could do for myself.

I see these traits in you now,
even at three
And though your independence
makes me proud
I fear it will have you
following in my footsteps —
Not needing anyone —
not wanting anyone!

But that’s a lie!
I do need people
To inspire, to encourage
To listen, to care
And what’s more,
I’ve always wanted you!

BUT my introverted nature,
Can only tolerate
external stimulation for so long
Before I must flee to my inner cave
For solace, for silence, for peace.
It is from that place I gain strength
To face the madness again.

It is my desperate need for silence
That makes me misunderstood.
My actions are not meant to hurt
Or cause offense.
My efforts to shut out the world
Are only so I can enjoy it on my terms.

So sleep my little one
As I cherish this moment
For in a few short minutes
You will be awake
Causing chaos as usual,
And in a few short years
You will be grown and gone
And this will only be a memory.

Feels like I’m Floating …

holding hot chocolate

I smiled today, not because I needed to pretend to be happy but because I actually was! There was a sense of peace and calm surrounding me — my troubles seemed to fade effortlessly away. I looked out to the sea but the rain was in the way, so I looked at the rain.

The sound, ever so soothing, brought back fond memories of my childhood. No school, just home under the covers. A day to spend in bed reading a good book, napping or watching movies. Trips to the kitchen, slow but deliberate, are to retrieve comfort foods: hot chocolate, soup, popcorn or what ever else that was easy to bring back to the bedroom or to the sofa to make the lazy day one to remember.

I smiled today, because I didn’t have to brave the elements or feel rushed or overwhelmed. Instead I was able to sit still and just be. I have been longing for moments like these for some time and I’m so glad they are finally becoming a reality.

I smiled today because I’m free to feel however I want just for me — feels like I’m floating as a leaf downstream; not fighting the currents, just willingly going along for the ride.
