Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be

Loss

Here With Me

I think you were with me
Walking along the beach
You would have loved this place
Always so much to see

A town run by its people
Just like back at home
Mom and pop businesses
Patrons regularly and on the go

I think you were with me
As the waves crashed into the shore
The sun shining through the clouds
I could see your face once more

If heaven was a place
It would be right here in my heart
Though you’re not on this earth
We will never be apart.

Daddy’s Girl

My dad is gone

He’s never coming home

He can’t walk me down the aisle

Or sing our favorite song

He can’t dance at my wedding

Or see his first grandchild

He’s not here to tell me stories

Of when he was young and wild

My dad is gone

He’s never coming home

He can’t approve my hand in marriage

Or tell me when I’m wrong

He can’t send flowers to momma

Like each Valentines before

He can’t hold up the phone

And say I love you more

Nothing is the same

Without him in this world

A piece of me is missing

I’m daddy’s little girl

My dad is gone

He’s now up in heaven

We have an angel watching

But we wish we could still have him.

Time Marches On

Moments away from the end,
the beginning of all the pain
Minutes away from losing
all the love we ever made
Seconds away from the silence
that’ll cut deeper than a knife
It’s time for me to tell you
I’m walking out of your life

Moments away from a change
that we can’t ever change back
Minutes away from falling
out of a love you no longer have
Seconds away from the laughter
that hides your initial shock
It’s time for me to love myself
for all the reasons you could not

Moments away from losing me,
you won’t fight for me to stay
Minutes away from saying
the words I never thought I’d say
Seconds away from leaving
the life I fought to build behind
It’s time you see you waited too long –
now we’re out of time.

The Girl Life Left Behind

I often wonder what happened to her
that mysterious girl with flawless skin

I wonder if she ran out chasing her dreams
traveling only the roads less taken

Did she find success and happiness?
Or did she wind up drowning in heartache?

Did she end up falling in love with herself?
Or were her insecurities too much to take?

I often find myself admiring her
that thin girl with a bright, shining smile

The way she wore her pride on her shoulders
how her carefree spirit ran wild

Her determination drew people in
she’d captivate those she’d walk passed

Her twinkling eyes would steal your heart
men found themselves lost in one glance

I often wonder what happened to her
that girl who couldn’t be stopped

Pictures are all that seem to be left
of the life of a girl life forgot

I stare at the image admiring her
how she radiated positivity

That girl, she’s a stranger to me now –
she’s the girl who I used to be.

Wings Of Irony

It’s what happens
when you touch the wings
of a butterfly

Admire the beauty
but from a distance
or they’ll die.
