Trying,
To sleep,
When I realize ,
My eyes are open.

Where are you going
my little one...
my precious son?
Why are you taking
my baby from me?

Close my eyes
and you're two...
Close my eyes
and you're four...
Close my eyes
and you're walking
right out of the door.

Where are you going
my little one...
my precious son?
You just keep growing
too quickly for me.

Close my eyes
and you're eight...
Close my eyes
and you're ten...
Close my eyes
and I just want
to hold you again.

Where are you going
my little one...
my precious son?
You've no way of knowing
how proud you make me.

Close my eyes
you're in school...
Close my eyes
and you're grown...
Close my eyes
and you're a father
precious son of your own.
This is more of a lullaby then poem. I used to sing it to my son when he was a lil guy. He's 22 now!!! Where does the time go?!

I would kiss you on the battlements
I would kiss you below flying cars
I would kiss you in the rain
Or when we would dance
Underneath the stars

Just keep me close through time
And time again-
I'll never leave your side,
No matter what,
I promise.

do you have moments, where you can’t imagine a future?
you’re lying there, staring at the
same walls
same ceilings
same words
with nothing but the same feelings-
empty and pale,
like there’s no reason to go on,
when you can’t even do enough to fail.
the future is coming, but you don’t want to be in it,
can’t imagine yourself in it.
where you just want to stop.
everything.
and just sit there for a while.
maybe not death, as that’s too permanent,
but something close to it.
when you can feel the rope around your neck,
the razor on your wrist,
the way the pills taste.
you can imagine it, and you aren’t sure if it’s what you want,
or just the feelings you imagine it will give you
Is this depression?

Erina
A wonderfull dear
Who is eager to cheer
Who lets me love her,
Who I can enjoy being near, (with)
Who is kind of insecure and clings
Though she reminds me of my goal...so I will be an angel one day, embrace her with my wings
I like her a lot, she has a special place in my heart
Thus I almost didn't know where I should start
She is awesome in many ways
Thus I want to claim her with a smile on my face
She is so nice and full of grace
I will serve serve cuddles and of course a kiss
So that I can see how her eyes fill with bliss,
She is special for me indeed,
So I will be here for her if there should be the need
Eirina I cherish you
Please dont be sad, dont you see I am reaching through
Youre my little star on the dakest of nights
Give me hope while sending in the wavelenghts of your beautiful lights
Lets make love my dear And free each other from all fear
So that love prevails
So that this ship sails

For my cutest <3

Like a moth to a flame,
the closer to the light I go.
Now I'm close to the light.

Think about me everyday.
Shine on me some kind of way.

Stardust dusted across your cheeks
Light brown ones, hard to see
The sun peaks

The warmth of the sun in your embrace
Your gravity is keeping me down
Unfamiliar space

Are you the milky way?
Am I the lonely astronaut?
Led astray

You are making my head spin
I am no moon, this isn't love
I can still taste the gin

From Mercury to Neptune the colors are all there
And time goes by, measure it by light years
Just stare

Sort of a single slingshot gravity
Keeps me from shooting further away.
The beauty, over your capacity


If the whole galaxy was in front of you,
would you come near it? Could you?
** When you are only allowed to enjoy the view

For the first time in years
I actually want to write something happy,
As i no longer want anyone else to feel otherwise

I hope my words will rain all over you tonight
And make you go out and dance your heart in the rain
And i hope the drought will subside
Together with all of your angers and worries

As nothing compares,
To the touch of your soft eyes
Onto mine
And the sweet dimples that sat upon your pretty face
as it light the whole universe in me

Nothing compares
to the long hard years
Of wanting you close to me
I will be waiting for you at the field of blue sky
Where peace has patiently waited for you

So darling
The next time i ask myself
How do i write something happy?
It is me picking up the pen and thinking of you
