Beautiful Thing


Enveloped by your arms
By your heart
By your body
By your soul
Enveloped by your comfort
By your smile
By your eyes
By your overwhelming love for me
We connect into one
It’s beauty
It’s a
Beautiful Things


Please don’t be reckless with my heart


I’m just so scared of getting hurt
I wipe my cold tears on the sleeve of my shirt
I am so sad that I’m all alone
So I begin to quietly groan
My heart it just breaks
I don’t know what it will take
When everything is at stake
I want to be loved, can you see
But every time I loved it ended tragically
Isn’t there anyone out there
Who would love me without a care
Who would love with reckless abandon
But not be reckless with my heart
It’s been put back together so many times
If it tears apart
Again and ruptures
I think it would be beyond repair
So as I prepare for another Christmas
I ask of you, the man I will love
Could you love me unconditionally
And hold me tight
Protect me, care for me with all your might?
I would love you so deeply
So sweetly and completely
On this cold December morning
I’m filled with both fright and delight
That maybe one day someone might
Not be reckless and tear my world apart
And be the one who steals me away heals my ailing heart

High on the List…


High on the list of things I hate
Broken rulers, being dreadfully late
Burning something or worse leaving it uncooked
Going to a hotel only to find out they’re booked
Self- help books and a huge flood
When my brand new shoes get caked in filthy mud

Cruelties towards an animals or human soul
Finding out your favorite team lost by one goal
When your dress tears apart at the seams
You wish that it was a sequence of bad dreams
(Yes I even hating the wishing, the lies we have to tell ourselves to stay okay)
When nature’s fury causes us to question our fate
These are high on the list of things I hate

When you end up questioning everything you’ve ever done
If you have not, it is time you’ve begun
When you look in the mirror and
You truly don’t love it, you take your hands and pray
When you have a craving for something and the store is fresh out
When you’re baby cousin does nothing but screech and shout

But something I don’t hate per say but
Something that makes me cry when it occurs this way
Is when I am sad
And no one knows why
Instead of advice or comfort of any kind
They sit there stuck on rewind
No knowing that the only thing worse
Then any problem, burden or curse
Is facing this world alone

Part 2: Not distant but close together, despite distance <3


We went to mass, the four kids that are actually adults

But affectionately known as the “four kids”

Then we went to the grocery store to shop for dinner

But as four kids that are so close

The journey through the aisles

Was my realization

We are all grown up

But we haven’t lost our childlike wonder

And our differences are what make us great

As a united team, we flourish

So as we are all frantically, passionately cooking the meal

Eating beer cheese, enjoying each bite and each other’s company

And then there’s the main course

The pastry ring with an amazing filling

Of ground chicken, cheeses, ranch, hot sauce. and love

I am filled with love

My aghast melted with the cheese

My worry about our closeness is dispelled

For all though we have distance, we are not

That distant. We are a family. ❤

I’m overflowing with love

The joy is abundant

The joy is warm.
