Favorite Quote:
\\\"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.\\\"--Louisa May Alcott

If I could just breathe in this airless roomThe pain and feeling of suffocating doomWith untold horrors swirling in the night
I protect myself with the radiant lightIf I could sit here, simply forget, and dream
I fly, I run, I dance in a perfect land unseen.There we laugh and liveAnd to me you forever give
A beating heart so sweet
That nothing can ever beat
The gift and promise that you say
Until that crushing day
When time frowned and froze
As a chilling wind blows
You away along with my fantasy
Now can't you see
That everything is fragile and bare
While I sit here without a care
For anyone but you
Another would never be as true
Dwindling, spiraling, far off hope
But I held on to try to cope
With the pain of losing him
In my hand I held on to the gem
His heart so red and beating fast
At last no longer casts
The love supposed to stay with me
From one I can no longer see.
So now I implore the light
To hold onto me tight
And bring him back on brilliant wings
So that my heart may once again sing.
