I wish you well from the bottom of my heart, but i have to walk away for me.

So I’m a lot of things

Descriptions so obscure
What’s your emotion, and please don’t tell me what i want.
That’s not an answer, not by a long shot.
I needed to hear that you need me, that i meant something to you.
To talk about things that are not working is great for communication 
 but if nothing is done then they are wasted words.
Its fine that you feel nothing,
Cause I can easily walk away,
I once admitted that I loved you
but now the feelings have gone away.
In the moment I didn’t see it going down like this,
but in the back of my mind it was a possibility.
I saw so much in you, perhaps it was too much.
In the end what i thought i needed from you
was to be happy but i found that in myself.
Perhaps we needed each other for the moment
and now the moment has come to pass.
I thank you for showing me I could love again,
and if I’m wrong then I apologize. 
Here’s to the new year and new possibilities, the sky’s the limit
and i wish you well from the bottom of my heart but I had to walk away for me.

What I Know

If I grab you by your hand as you turn to walk away,
you would stay a little longer and then you’d go.

If I look into your eyes, I don’t have to say whats on my mind
because somehow you already know.

If I told you that i was cold, you would come to keep me warm
never would you leave me shivering and alone.

If I said that I was hungry, you would cook me up a storm
never ever throwing me just a bone.

If we were caught in a blizzard, you wouldn’t stay in the house
you’d come out and play with me in the snow.

And if you did something crazy, I’d be there right beside you
because that is the only way we roll.

The Return of Story Time Saturdays

The other day I ran across some poems I had written many moons ago.  They made me smile, some made me sad and some made me mad.  Reading them and reflecting on them now, I realize that life has many ups and downs However, we are not defined by the ups and downs, but how we react to them.  Writing has always been a way for me to get through whatever it was that was getting to me.  If it was something that made me happy, I felt that maybe I could capture the moment with words that painted a picture, so that I could remember it later.

I’ve never shared the poems but today I thought maybe if I did, they might help someone else.  They might help you.  They might inspire you to remember to keep the moments, whether good or bad, embrace them and release them, whichever way you choose to do it.  So for the next few Saturdays, I announce the return of Story Time Saturdays.  Stay Tuned.  May this Saturday contain memories that last with you for a lifetime.

Until then,

PS.  Should you feel compelled to perhaps share a story, poem or how you embrace life, click on the email icon above.
