The House

The house is wrong tonight…..
The house is dark tonight….
The house is empty tonight….
We that remain hide….
Take refuge from the night….
Mighty cat joins us alone….
The house is wrong tonight….
The house is quiet tonight….
The house has too many shadows….
While there are no lights….

The house is wrong tonight….
The house is empty tonight….
The house has lost it’s soul….
The house is dying tonight….
And it is awakening from the depths….
Stealing every last soul on its way….

The house is wrong tonight….
Filled with dreadful silence….
For all the world to hear….
And none shall ever notice….
The house that screams….
Empty in the night….

A Letter From Daddy

My Dearest Emersyn,

From the moment of your birth, to this day, and every day that has yet to pass; you have, and will always be loved. You have an amazing personality, a magnificent soul within you. Each day, you have continued to grow into a beautiful person, and I am lost in amazement by you.

Though we don’t see each other every day, you are in my thoughts each moment of them, and in my heart always. Each time you are with me, though short it may be, our bond grows closer, stronger; our love and admiration for each other, between a daughter and her daddy, becomes deeper with each memory made.

You are not losing a daddy today, but instead gaining another who loves you just as deeply, just as fiercely, and loyally. You are gaining a step-mom today; who will forever be there for you in every way needed as I have, and will continue to always be there for you.

We are adding to our family, a wonderful woman, who will continue to love us both, and be an added cornerstone to the lives we are able to share with each other.

I love you Emersyn

Now and Always

Life’s Gentle Dreams

Drifting softly across the waters façade
Swishing quietly under lights above
Peace settles around the gentle lapping
With light breezes kissing along the skins exposed

Tall pines marking the edges of serenity
With razors of rocks keeping all in shallows
Twists upon windings getting near
Sleep now gentle baby upon the waters wave

With moonlight guiding the path
Shorelines just within reach
THe vastness of dreams being to dance
Sweeping swiftly as childs feet

Dream now child of mine
Let your mind unwind this night
And find within all it’s missed
Waiting to join you on the shores
The beach where you’ll find peace to sleep

What Distance Costs

Every day a struggle to find my way thru
Every day the marathon of taunting thoughts
Wrecking havoc ready to break free of me
Set aside the madness focus on the child

No one seems to understand what it really means
Living lies inside this head to make it thru the night
How far away the travel stays to take away
The miles racked up in between mountains and the sea
No one seems to understand what this distance costs

Alone in this head is not a safe place to live
For if you could see me, could you be near me
After learning all the truths trapped inside
With it’s long dark roads winding inside mazes

The child is long now lost unable to understand this
How many miles of traveling must be made
The woman by my side, seems I make her cry
With lonely distance the only thing at her side
No one seems to understand what this distance costs

Thousand miles here and there seems like nothing
But only to those not out there with me
Forget cross-country but mountains from the sea
Those winding roads slowly killing me

As I make my way to and from
My loving ones to my home
Six-hundred miles in the night
Is quite the sight
As I barrel down the roads

No one seems to understand what it really means
Living lies inside this head to make it thru the night
How far away the travel stays to take away
The miles racked up in between mountains and the sea
No one seems to understand what this distance costs

No one seems to understand what this distance demands
The sacrifices being made for the few hours one day
A heavy heart drives the car with eyes watery
For it’s two weeks time we must depart
But no one knows what this distance costs….

It’s broken hearts every time I say goodbye
With teary eyes for every mile I drive
A worn and battered soul
With a woman and a child waiting
For me to drive home along more lonesome miles

In Blink’s Of Eyes

In blink’s of eyes, life passes by
In blink’s of eyes, life quickly dies
In moments past, yet to come
Living days, one to one
New lives come, old ones leave
Quicker than changing leafs

Setting sun on last days run
Lonely breath is all that’s left
As the body slowly gives up

Life moves one with memories remain
And moments lost never regained
Nor future ones be shared
From blink’s of eyes
To eternal stares

Of little moments not to share
A watchful knowing is always there
As life grows on in little smiles
Pictures past will show her why
With past and future meeting again
In only photos years begin

Neither man nor wife will ever meet
Nor see the future with disbelief
A single child with eyes wide
Only moments was captured by
Within those moments of smiles and eyes
Generations crossing paths

With past now gone, and future wide
Memories keep them alive
In few pictures that do survive
They’ll know the ones by their sides
Stories told each every night
To keep their memories alive
Now long gone from blink’s of eyes
