Little Things That Matter…

A lovely little smile,
You used to have,
Now that is just painted.
A lot of love,
You used to give,
Now you have become sainted.
A strong support,
You used to be,
Now you yourself fall apart.
A lot of time,
You would spend with us,
Now I only see you depart.

You have forgot,
What you mean to us,
You are not who you used to be.
You are flying high,
Just as fast as time,
No time, you have, to speak to me.
A loving word,
From your heart,
That word we used to treasure.
Now you don’t,
Even speak with us,
Can your silence give us pleasure?

Lost in the time,
You are slowly losing us,
That, can you not see?
You have no time,
To see what brings you joy,
Once that did make you feel free.
Leave your worries,
Smile, then the world smiles with you,
Dream, and always fly high.
Just don’t forget,
What and who are dear to you,
For when you soar, they also fly.

Life is not about the number of breaths you take;
It is about the moments that take your breath away.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
