Little Girl Blue

Little Girl Blue

In the field of
forever dreaming
she waited for the prince

who never came
just an ordinary man
with simple wishes

She starved in the shell
of his empty dreams.

Harvest came
her arms were empty
cold from the dying fire.

Little girl blue
aged with time
embraced each day

Hoping to find
the stillness shadows
could fill-

And still she waits
arms outstretched
reaching for all
she couldn’t find.

It’s hard
to face
the passage of time.

I still feel like
the young woman,
anticipating  each
sunrise which still
offers me hope.

I can try again-
Be better,
be more,

weary from all
the years which
slipped by-

Ghosts who promised
dreams fulfilled.

I am tired
but still
I rise and hold dear
all the things I promised myself.

Rock A Bye

Rock A Bye

Rock a bye
this life of mine

So lost in you-
I must step aside

Let you pass
me by.

Hoping all the years
of loving you have made
you strong enough to face
a world I don’t know.

Rock a bye baby
I hope the wind
blows gently and you
always feel the warm
breeze from me to you.

Rock a bye baby
life will fall just the way
it’s supposed to fall.
