Your light

crossing distance and time

comes back to find me…

To

guide

me

home

- Jen

As the backdraught blows

across your face

to dry your tears

and take my place 

As you stand alone

in my waning shadow

with buckling knees

Oh! how you know…

and

wish 

it

was

not

so…

- Jen

For you, you…and okay, you too! :-)

You didn’t know
You could not tell
but you picked me up
each time I fell

You didn’t know
You could not tell
but you held my hand
as I walked through hell

You didn’t know
You could not tell
when my heart was trampled
you made it swell

You didn’t know
You could not tell
but because of you
I’m doing well!!!

“How can I feel good about this life I’m living, When you’re not here right beside me. Not here, where you should be’ – Sam Frank

You keep me awake [2x]
{At night} you keep me awake, at night

You keep me awake at night
Wake
You keep me awake at night
You keep me awake at night (night)

How can I feel good about this life I’m living
When you’re not here
Right beside me
Not here, where you should be
Sometimes it feels like I might as well just turn around and give in
‘Cause you’re not here, where you should be
Not here, right beside me
[2x]

These lonely days
Turn into lonely nights
Everything’s upside down
And I’ve lost the will to fight
You say you have to leave
And won’t even tell me why
You took my hopes and dreams
And left me alone to cry

How can I feel good about this life I’m living
When you’re not here
Right beside me
Not here, where you should be
Sometimes it feels like I might as well just turn around and give in
‘Cause you’re not here, where you should be
Not here
Right beside me

I stare at the phone
Hoping that you might call
Wondering who you’ve been seeing and trying to make sense of it all
They say that my heart will grow stronger ahead of me, over the years
But right now that’s hard to believe
As I lie in my empty bed drowning in tears

How can I feel good about this life I’m living
When you’re not here
Right beside me
Not here, where you should be

Sometimes it feels like I might as well just turn around and give in
‘Cause you’re not here, where you should be
Not here
Right beside me

(Just that one problem – extended version plz!)

<3

I can’t give a reason why

the look of love died in your eyes

obligations taken place
a masquerade played on your face
we live
we breathe
we’re building our dreams
we laugh
we cry
no one can decide
a-l-l we know
how hard we try
we live
we breathe
nowhere to hide
the kindest way is we should part
and find our way back to the start
anger tears my brittle bones
leaves me scarred and all alone
we live
we breathe
we’re building our dreams
we laugh
we cry
no one can decide
a-l-l we know
how hard we try
we live
we breathe
nowhere to hide x5

Originally posted on Cape Cod: A Journey Through the Eyes of a Naturalist:

Awaken now to laugh away,
and stare into a distant day

Where dreams drift high above the trees,
and carry along the shifting seas

Memories bring us together again,
to a time when you still called me friend

To better days when things were fun,
to play all day and drink the sun

We’d wait until the moon appeared,
to dance until the morning cleared

I followed you to a distant land,
where we laced our memories in the sand

On sunken clouds and forest floor,
we’d wandered off to distant shores

We sat atop the edge of the world,
and there I saw my dreams unfurled

But in the blink of an eye, it all disappeared,
and I awoke to discover as the images cleared;

That what I had seen will remain in my head
just a memory no more than the words that were said

But tomorrow I’ll…

the soul of the moon

for years he has longed
to know her warm touch
still faithful he waits
ne’er asking so much

though seasons have passed
his voice has grown weak
his thoughts never stray
his eyes never seek

there is but one fear
that chastens his heart
the cold winter winds
that keep them apart

I’m still in love with you
Though i keep myself away
I live everyday on this thought
Wishing to have you one more day

My heart is so void and empty
Hearing the rattling noise inside
This noise of the broken pieces
Wondering whether like me you’ve cried

This pain lingers for very long
Which i’m sure you never knew
You just live everyday your life
Where i can never pass through

If ever things get better?
Living my life without me here
Don’t know whether it’s bad or good?
I’ll continue to…………………………………

Is it love I’m waiting for, day and night,
motionless in one and sleepless in another,
perhaps to come and embrace me with care
and thaw my frozen heart, grown harder than a stone?

This afternoon I stood at an arm’s length
from her and could smell her sweet fragrance in the air
but I became both speechless and petrified,
as if a lightning bolt had struck me on my head!

Perhaps it is but carnal and blind too
like hunger or the urge of mating for a beast,
robbing me of the faculty* that sets
a beast apart from the members of humankind!

Take the wind and gently blow,
send it my way, so I’ll know
you’re doing well, happy even,
in a world that’s softly grieving;
A place in time, lost, alone,
lit by winter’s ice-cold tone;
If I could send my warmth to you,
fast as lightning, straight and true,
To your heart I’d let if fly,
All my love, just don’t cry;
Frozen tears would suit you not
Take my heart, take all I’ve got,
You matter more, than I ever will
take my being, stave the chill,
Should I fade and cease to be,
Be strong, be sure, be you, be free!
