I Didn’t Draw, I Wouldn’t Paint

I didn’t draw, I wouldn’t paint
Little love, lots of hate
Time stood still
And seemed to crawl
No one knew
What could or would be all.

Focused on the wrong thing then
Didn’t know what was up
Or around the bend.
Hardship was a constant friend
Little laughter to ease my way
Just disaster each turn I made.

Then they came and held me up
Turned me round to see the light
Not just of love
But a grandeur life
Stroked my soul, made things right
This they did for me one night.

They stood behind, smiled and laughed
No judgement made in this my craft
What took so long?
You might ask
But only those who know
Can answer that.

Heartache Joyous Flowing Down

January 23, 2013

Heartache joyous flowing down
Releasing sadness all around.

Making love a thing of the past
Making sorrow ever last.

Melancholy thoughts abound
Swirling, twirling, I hear the sound.

Make me happy, make me see
This hardship is not my destiny.
