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.

The Moon Has a Face

When I was young
Imagination,
Was an old friend of mine
Before I closed my eyes at night,
Music bounced on every line,
Humming songs
From old stories
Tales of battles and the glories
Legends dying
Those who save
No man has ever seen their grave,
But they remain
Retold
Re-written
Sweet as a bedtime lallibu
I have loved those goodnight stories
Time only passed us by and by
Then I’d wonder by the window
Where the rain has passed at last
And the clouds escaped the sky
Only leaving mist and dust,
As I gaze into the eyes
To find the wonderful surprise
Pretty close, but far away
A cold and alienated place
Where gravity it cannot stay
My moon, it has a face.
