   Life is full
   Of ups and downs
   And somehow
   We have to learn
   How to face each one
   And then overcome
   But I cannot lie
   I wish I had a carpet bag
   Just like Mary Poppins        
   So I could pull out
   The perfect fix
   Every time
   I needed to.              JD

   The willow weeps
       Its silent cries
        Getting lost
Among the other trees
       Just as mine
          Get lost
       In a crowd
      Of only one.            

             JD

When there is no one there, who will hear you cry?  Who will wipe your tears? Who will ease your pain?

They say when you see a cardinal, a loved one who has passed is visiting. It's beautiful and I love seeing them, but when they fly away, it's like losing you all over again #mom #FreeToFly

        I stand before you
        Broken
        But willing to try
        Even as the sharp edges
        Pierce
        My beating heart.
        Your gentle touch
        Helps to ease the pain
        And bond the fractures,
        But your obsessive cravings
        Do nothing
        To quell my fears
        Of never more
        Being alone.
        The question is,
        Do you, or do you not,
        Want me to stay
        To try to fix your broken
        Too?                          JD

*Hiding*
A smile can hide the pain from the outside world, just as the 'painting' of a serene and beautiful sunrise can hide the clouds - however, there's no keeping the tears or rain at bay and eventually, you have to come out of hiding

     Everyone
     Has always told me
     That I am strong
     I want to believe them
     And sometimes, I do
     But right now
     Even after all of the pain,
     All of the hurt,
     And all of the dissapointment
     You brought into my life
     I am not sure
     I have the inner strength
     To say "Good-bye."      JD (Princess)

         I thought my heart,
         Although empty,
         Could not fit
         Anyone
         Or anything
         Inside its battered walls
         But I've come to learn
         That broken
         Can still take in
         And even give
         Love,
         Actually.                JD

    My beloved seas
    I cannot undo
    What has been done
    Or change the past
    I cannot take back
    Any pain I have caused
    Or find relief
    From my own pain;
    From my broken
    I cannot assuage
    The guilt that engulfs me
    But I am fortunate enough
    To call you friend
    And I know that
    When I release it all to you,
    You will wash it away
    Like grains of sand
    To be lost in the vastness
    That is you
    For ever more.         JD

       And leaves
       Softly drift down
       Littering the ground
       In a blanket
       Of magnificent color.        JD
