You Are A Kindness

You had a mystery about you
And I saw it in your eyes
From the moment that I met you
You caught the crowd by surprise.

Maybe those eyes covered in sadness
And for that heart there was a plan
Someday, someone would catch your madness
And let yourself live free again.

Perhaps there was another passion
That was yet to be revealed
A hopeful voice, in usual fashion
Whispering “please just be still,

Stop running, searching, contemplating,
Breathe, and let you mind just soar,”
Because there was a human waiting,
One that you had not met before.

For a moment you remembered
How it was to really feel,
A child dancing in September
To cry, to know that it was real,

To imagine, to let go,
To live a life that’s being lived
You are not the thoughts you know
You are more than You’ve believed!

And one day you’ll see it too
How you light up every room
And those tears that you once knew
Won’t be coming back so soon.

Someone I Loved the Most

You are no longer hereswings
Left with an empty hand,
It’s your voice I long to hear
I’ve lost more than just a friend

Timing never caught us worse;
For five years you let me stay
You headed for a different course
Now our paths are far away

Snowy days of our Decembers
Spent in places even colder:
The ones I thought you may remember,
Before we grew a moment older

And may it all be gone
I do not doubt the cost
You were once someone,
Someone I loved the most.
