From the moment you were born,
People crowded around you to celebrate your birth
From your first birthday,
You smacked your hand into the cake,
From your first day at school,
You looked around nervously,
From your first bat/bar mitzvah,
You couldn't chose what to wear,
From your first job,
You didn't know to act,
From your last job,
You were happy,
From your death,
People cried bitter tears,
And kept their only memories of you,
All this...
Determined who you were,
And your impact...
In this world

Love...
It is like quicksilver,
Leave your palm open,
And it will stay...
Forever in your grasp,
But,
One thing you do wrong,
Can change all that,
The minute...
You try to clutch it,
It darts away,
Leaving only...
Your...
Broken heart and bitter tears

I stay up all night,
Thinking about you,
Wishing that you would talk to me,
At least...
Answer when I ask,
But, no...
You just stare,
As if I am not there,
You seem to see right through me,
Though I'm right in front of your eyes,
What have I done?
To make me feel...
As if I'm not there?

The moment,
I walk through the door,
You turn silent,
Your vacant eyes,
And...
Blank face,
Watch me....
The moment,
I leave...
I can hear you again...
Your laughter,
Bouncing off the walls
Yet...
When I'm there...
You are....
silent

On a perfect spring night,
the Moon rises high into the sky,
Illuminating the dark, night sky
The stars twinkling joyfully,
As if they were happy about something,
The cool breeze swooshed over the world,
The air  filled with joy...
On A Perfect Spring Night

The stars...
Shine brightly,
In the evening sky,
Families crowd out,
On the beautiful lawn
Under the beautiful sky,
Wishing upon a shooting star,
That their life...
Their life,
Will be a good one...
On an evening night

The Wild Horses,
Gallop across,
The shimmering water,
Their manes flying free,
Their hooves pounding on the ground,
The Sun beating down on their back,
As...
The beautiful...
Wild...
Horses...
Run Free
