First

I’ve come a long way
stumbled for many years
yet you were out there
yet I was here

the mornings when you’re next to me
leave me in awe
of that amazing smile
those eyes I can’t resist staring

I don’t want to be without you
like I was before
like I was when I stumbled
yet you are out there

yet I am here

Easy on me

Blame

Blame me
as I blame myself
years and years pass
waiting for time to pass

everyday is closer
every day is another lost

blame me
I do

when it’s passed
when it’s gone
when it no longer hurts

I’ll only have
myself to blame

stay inside

warm water

forgetting

a forgotten birthday
hurts
across waters on a cool summer night

as the music played
i thought of us
another milestone

years and years
and years
I’m left drained…. lost

there have been lights along the path
uncertainty a constant companion
I move forward

sometimes it hurts
like a forgotten birthday

It’s better…
