Unapologetically Alive

When was the last timeYou threw something with your full forceYou ran at your top speedYou laughed like crazy until your stomach hurt When was the last timeYou tackled your friend with all your forceYou screamed at your top voiceYou cried until your throat became sore Does your body still bounce with joyDo your eyes […]

Rain

The smell of grassThe smell of dirtThe dampness on my skin SuddenlyI’m back there againComing home That little girlCrouching over a snailFilled with wonders of the world

Empty Cup

Your cup is emptyBut you sit thereListening to me talkAs I sip my tea Your plate is emptyExcept for that one last bite you leftBut you look unbotheredWhile I slowly eat my food Kind patienceUnspoken careEven if no one said anythingI notice – your kindness in action

I want you to know

I want you to knowHow delightful it wasWhen I came in andYou’d already made my coffeeBefore I even ordered it I want you to knowHow nice it wasWhen I saw you in the kitchenSpeaking to your friendWith so much kindness I want you to knowHow comforted I wasWhen I opened the doorTo find you walking
