Colossians 3:12-14

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.  Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense.  Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you.  An regardless of what else you put on, wear love.  It’s your basic, all-purpose garment.  Never be without it.

“Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us.  And the greatest is love.”

– Alan Jackson


Beautiful Monster

I can tell

you’re in pain

I see

you don’t think

you deserve me

What you missed

I missed too

we feel the same

me and you

I know you’re damaged

I’m damaged too

two war-torn bodies

in a place so new

You think you’re a monster

and maybe you are

you have your flaws

don’t you think I can see them?

You think you’re unworthy

that I’m too good for you

well baby here’s the thing

you’re too good for me too

The pain in my chest

that I feel when you’re hurting

proves only one thing

we’re connected, I’m learning

You’re pushing me away

hiding the darkness inside you

but babe I’m not running

I know the darkness too

You’re a beautiful monster

my dear, sweet boy

will you please stop running?

Will you let me love you?

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



I Will – Dedicated to Cote de Pablo

These past eight years

you have played a crucial role

in the lives of millions of fans

and your coworkers


we have watched you grow

on and off the screen

and we grew right along side you


eight years ago

I was a mere child

unsure of where I was going

we grew together

changed together

laughed and cried together

even though you’re worlds away

from a fangirl like me


we once dreamed of ballerinas

and singing on international stages

not knowing what was to come

or where fate would take us


with you leaving NCIS

and I graduating to adulthood

we both have our goodbyes to say

new journeys to begin


In watching you leave

a million hearts shattered

but pieces of our hearts will stay with you

like paper clips bind paper


as the tears fall

like emotion enhanced raindrops

I think back to one

final scene of NCIS

and the list of things

your character aspired toward

in her childhood


just like her

I’m making my I Will

inspired by you


I dedicate my drive for knowledge

in history and language

and every single choir concert and play

to you


you may never know me

and I’ll never know you

but I wish to send my love to you

where ever you go


what ever you do

you are extraordinary

in a world full of ordinary

I’m glad you came to the show

and I hope one day you return


but until then

much love and luck to you
