"I will soar"

Merely crawling and searching for somewhere to hide
afraid and alone- until it is that I finally decide
Darkness doesn't have to be all that I see
I can be anything that I want to be
I made the bed and now I must lye here
Until I can let go of my shame and all of my fear
Like a butterfly- tearing out of her cocoon
Underneath the borrowed lights of the moon
I too breakaway - shedding my old skin
As I patiently wait for my new life to begin
I'm open, freely flying to new heights
Colorful, spontaneous, beautiful and bright
No longer insignificant in this world
I have purpose, I have meaning
With my new wings, I WILL SOAR

"I owe it all to you"

Dedicated to Brandon

I wake up to the most beautiful hazel eyes, my hand in yours
we begin our day underneath the sunrise
It took me awhile to get here but I did it somehow
As I look around I realize how much I have to be thankful for and I'm finally happy now
Did you know that I owe it all to you?

I was lost and drifting before you came along
Empty words and darkness were written in my songs
The candle had blown out a long time ago but you relit it with your love
Now I'm counting my blessings and full of things to be proud of
Did you know that I owe it all to you?

You found me when no one else was looking
You heard me when no one else was listening
You understood me when everyone else quit trying
You bandaged the wounds to my broken heart and stopped the bleeding
You saved a life so many thought wasn't worth saving
You showed me how to be a better person
You made sense when everything was uncertain
Everything I have, everything I am - I owe it all to you!

"Within Me"

Is it time for you to see the real me?
The me I leave locked up deep within the olive skin you find pretty
Behind the brown eyes that have a voice of there own
In a silent emotion that desires to be free
a part of me that equals trouble
a flower blooming wildly and strong
Tied down by little blessings and responsibility
feeling this way should be considered sinful
But I need an escape for you and I to belong
Belong to each other, within me
Forgotten passion as years passed quickly
Reminiscent of times I felt desirable
I'm submissive to the me I have hushed for too long
See me, the real me, find me completely.
