Ecclesiastes 3:1-10

There is a time for everything
And a season for every activity under heaven:
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
A time to embrace and a time to refrain,
A time to search and a time to give up,
A time to keep and a time to throw away,
A time to tear and a time to mend,
A time to be silent and a time to speak,
A time to love and a time to hate,
A time for war and a time for peace.
What does the worker gain from his toil?



Playing games

with each other’s hearts

is what love is


We play around

wrestle and cuddle

talk and fight

cry and dream

Each of us

put up a front

pretending we’re ok

like this is natural

I can tell

you’re hiding something

deep inside those blue eyes

just like I

hide secrets behind

chocolate brown eyes.

I know you have your demons

I have a fair share myself

but I think that’s part of us

part of why we work

My heart is aching

seeing you suffer

I want to be there

to provide you comfort

please don’t push me away

I’m not scared of you

I’m scared of what I might do to you

Both of us unstable

both want to change

let’s change together

don’t be afraid of me

I’m not afraid of you

I know you aren’t perfect

and neither am I

I’m scared to cause you heartache

I’m scared to let you down

despite your flaws and demons

I need you around


Maybe this is a bad idea
Maybe we shouldn’t do this
Maybe this is wrong

Maybe this isn’t real
Maybe this is a dream
Maybe I’m making this up.

Maybe this is real
Maybe this is fate
Maybe this is perfection

Maybe this is truth
Maybe this is meant to be
Maybe you are the one

Maybe I’m falling
Maybe you are too
Maybe this is destiny

Maybe this is friendship
Maybe this is natural
Maybe this is meant to be

Maybe this is love
Maybe this is what I need
Maybe this will help me feel
Maybe I’ll be whole again
Maybe you’re my home

Maybe we’ll fight
Maybe sparks will fly
Maybe we will end
Maybe we won’t

Maybe you’re my forever
Maybe we are meant to be
Maybe you were made for me
Maybe I was made for you

Maybe you will break me
Maybe I will break you
Maybe we’ll break each other

Maybe this is love
Maybe it’s true love
Maybe I’m dreaming
Maybe this is right


Everything seems to come back
to you
always you

every breath
each heartbeat
each step
is you

I never knew
It was possible to feel this way
To be this way
Yet here I am
Thinking of you

How can I be
Lucky enough
To have someone
So loving
So caring
So beautiful so perfect
In my life?

How is it possible
That someone
Like you
Could ever choose
Someone like me
To live out your days with
When you could have
Someone far better
Than me

I never thought
Someone so broken
So damaged
So jaded and scared
Could ever learn
To feel this way
And stay
Though my instincts scream
“run away!”

You changed me
I think you saved me
When you showed me
That even I
Deserve to be loved
Despite my flaws
And constant shortcomings
You still stick around
And that’s why you’re stunning

Though I don’t want to
I see what’s coming
Someone will be hurt
This can’t last forever

Please quiet my mind
Prove me wrong with a kiss
Stay with me for long
Don’t let my doubts end this

You’re so beautiful
I wish you could see it
The scars on your wrist
Show you don’t believe it

If only a mirror could reflect what I see
Then maybe you’ll realize
You’re beautiful to me

I love you my darling
Now riddle me this
Do you fall for me more
Each time that we kiss?

Or am I just a lover
To keep you warm in the night
Will you fall for another
The first time we fight?

Please tell me I’m crazy
That you love me too
Because I would be lost
If I didn’t have you.

I hope I don’t scare you
When I say how I feel
I just want you to love me
I want this to be real

If I’m dreaming
Please wake me
Be cruel if you must
I think that I love you
This isn’t just lust

I hope this is worth it
This turmoil inside
It’s too strong to hide it
So to you I must confide

Don’t hurt me
My darling
Don’t leave me
My dear
I feel that our love
Is totally real

You are my sunshine
You are my rain
Every breath
Every second
Calls your name

To you
My precious
I’ll always return
For when I’m not with you
My heart it does burn

I yearn for your touch
Your kiss
Your hand
You have my heart now
Protect it if you can

Growing Up (Goodbyes)

It’s scary to think

in a year from today

everything I have

what I’m used to

what I’ve worked so painstakingly hard for

will be gone

I’ll be miles away

from all my family and friends

embarking on the final leg

of the journey

called growing up

soon my worries won’t be

all prom dates

choir concerts

remembering birthdays

and anniversaries

I’ll have to focus on

exam grades

finding a job

paying off loans

and debating between new or used textbooks

it’s all happening so fast

and yet far too slowly

I’m eager to strike out on my own

but I’m scared of what I may find

it’s all a part of life

part of my destiny

and though I know I need this

I’m scared of what I’ll loose

all my life

I’ve wanted freedom

dreamed of having more choices

and being independent

but now I see

freedom comes at a cost

nothing we have is permanent

nothing guaranteed

not even blood ties

or friendships we swore would last forever

we have to say goodbye

somehow learn to move on

break off the ties built over the years

but promise to stay in touch

this is where we’re meant to be

this is what we have to do

and though it hurts to say or think

you can’t take high school with you

it’s time to say goodbye

or perhaps just see you later

if something is meant to last

set it free

if it comes back

and withstands the test of time

you’ll know it’s meant to be

we all have our ways of moving on

and learning to say goodbye

without breaking

over and over again

these are the crossroads

the point of no return

this baby bird must leave the nest

to one day make her own

I love you all dearly

and I wish you all the very best

I know you’d say the same to me

if you had the chance

this is my last goodbye

I’ll never say it in person

for if I do

I’ll surely loose it

so look to the sky

the stars shining like diamonds

those are my angels

my saving graces

whenever you miss me

look to the heavens

close your eyes and breathe deeply

and I’m right there with you

I love you all dearly

but now we must part

just know

where ever I am

where ever you are

not even a million miles

could keep us apart

one day I’ll be back

we’ll finally reunite

and when you’re in my arms

everything will be


shine brightly

my beloved angels

I’ll see you around

and we’ll share our tales

of finally growing up
