All That Is In Me

Recommended Posts

When Simple Thoughts Fill My Head

When all is said and done.

Will I know thyself

Be one

When simple thoughts fill my head

Will they drift by

Unsaid

For all I have thought but never dared to say.

Kept hidden deep inside

Locked up and away.

Let the rain fall down over me.

Hide my tears and fears feel free.

Let the sun shine down upon my face.

Feeling warm inside filled with grace.

Let the wind encircle me

Fill my mind with hopes and dreams.

Let the earth under my feet.

Hold me fast to my truths and beliefs.

When simple thoughts fill my head

Will they drift by

Unsaid

Morning [Mourning] Of Birth

I feel myself fill with sadness as the day draws near.

I try to hide my sadness from those who care.

It is something I can't explain

A feeling deep within.

Of being ripped from that which is greater than I

I can no longer hide my tears.

I paint a smile upon my face though I cry inside.

I try to comfort those who care for me, but not I.

Seconds, Minutes, Hours of agonizing pain.

A day I wish I could have slept away.

The tears I wish would fade.

And as the last second of the day finally seizes to exsist.

I awake a new day as I have every other day but this.

I hear the birds singing out my window.

I see the flowers and the beauty of the day.

I feel alive, again.

Do You Know Me/Who I Am

When you look at me

Do you see who I really am.

Are you caught up in delusions

Caught up in a dream.

I'm standing right before you

And I swear you don't see

Me

When you think of me

Do you know who I truely am.

Are you caught in the moment

Of first glance.

I'm standing right before you

And I swear you can't see

Who I am

Me

When you know I'm in your arms

Is it me that's really there.

Or is it something you've grabbed a hold of without a care.

Do you know my hopes and dreams

Do you know my secret prayer

Do you know me

Who I am

Unlock Your Soul

When you wake in the morning

Does the sun kiss your lips?

Does the air wrap around, you in love?

When you rest your head on your pillow.

Does the night welcome you in?

Does it take hold of you mind, as you drift?

Forever longing to be in the present.

Forever trying to escape the past.

Hoping your future holds the key to happiness.

Do you hold the key?

To unlock your soul.

When you're caught out in the rain

Do you rush in?

When you're caught up in the moment

Do you feel the heat?

Forever longing for happiness to begin.

Do you hold the key?

Do you hold the key?

Doubt Was Once A Stranger

Doubt was once a stranger

I had never seen

And now its reflection

Stands looking back at me.

It fills me deep within like posion

Flowing through my veins

No thoughts of hope or dream still remain.

I can bare not this weight upon my soul

I dare not go to such depths

For fear I know that road.

I take a deep breath and exhale, with all my might

Giving life again to dreams and hopes within my sight.

Doubt was once a stranger

I call it no friend of mine.

The Jog

As I wake the morning sun greets me.

Such a good friend indeed

It warmth fills deep within, as it comforts me.

The birds they sing of news

From thousands of miles away.

I can not understand them

But wish to know what they say.

As I start my morning run.

The day gives hope to me.

The pavement at me feet

Soon joins in the beat as I breath.

Such a moment of feeling fills within

The elements surround me

Nature is my friend.

Guardian Of The Night

As I lay my head on my pillow.

I sense you're near.

A faint whisper in my ear.

Softly spoken, I wish to hear.

As I lay with thoughts tumbling in my head

I try to silence them, those I dread.

You're presence fills me with warmth, love and light.

I hope that you will always guide me

Be at my side.

As I slowly drift off to sleep

I catch a quick glimpse of you and smile.

I remember, only where the conscious mind can not go.

I pray you'll come to me each night.

Watch over me, protect me

So that I may catch a glimpse of you at sight.

Untitled

The sun light kissing my eyes gently awakening me.

My eyes open to a new day with no regrets, no worries, no hopes.

I have no expectations of myself, other do but I care not what they think.

My dreams slip from my mind

I try grasping them in thought making them hold true

But with the night the dark they flee from me.

With each breath a moment passes that will never be again.

This sits with caution on my mind as the day slips away.

I capture moments of laughter, of joy.

I wipe away tears and hide my sadness deep within.

Burying it strengthening my soul from the very depths of darkness inside.

I try to be patient, caring.

I try to forgive though never seem to forget

But learn from that which the day has passed my way.

And as the night calls to me, whisper my name.

A peace comes over me for I know this day will never be again.

I've passed the test.

I slip into slumber

The mist of my mind approaches and with it the guardian of sleep.

Where I dare to dream with all that is within me.

Knowing the children are a sleep and my husband at my side.

I travel back into the depths of my mind.

Petals Of The Mind

Seedlings sprout up from the ground.

At youth we want to know.

Stem grows tall

Buds begin to form.

We thirst for knowledge, then regret the road to learn.

Suddenly anew, comes a blossom fully formed.

We pride ourselves for reaching for the stars.

Though the heaven weren't where we thought they are.

Time passes

The season passes

Petals start to drop one by one.

Memories start to fade as time goes on.

A seedling starts to grow

At youth we wish to know....................

Spirit Of Sleep

A whisper on the wind calls to me

As I sleep, so deep in peace.

I see myself walking through the mist

No light in sight, no path way at my feet

Just a feeling deep within me.

I wake with the sun light on my face.

A feeling of being born again, start a new day.

Nothing said or done, it all slips away.

Don't look back, it's a waste of a beautiful day.

Being Of The Night

When the night comes calling

Darkness falling upon the earth.

When the moon shines high

Brightens the sky I walk the earth.

Feel the energy of the night

Come to life.

Feel the creatures of the night

Walk at your side.

Tame the beast within.

This curse is but a sin.

Walk the earth in sleep.

Wake tonight, with me.

I thought it might be best to just put all my poems in one place. This way no one hads to do a search for more if your interested to see what else I have written. So here you have it

All That Is In Me a collection of all the poetic ramblings running around in my mind.

In Your Eyes

Take a journey to a simple place

In your mind it rests hidden away.

Take a deep breath and see all there is to see

In this world one glance is all there will be.

In your eyes I see hope burning bright

And I want to hold on til the morning light.

In your eyes I see fear fade away.

If I only knew how to get rid of them too.

In your eyes.

Just want to get lost, in your eyes.

Take a moment out of the busiest day

And hold on to the brightest sun rays.

Take a walk out in the pouring rain

You won't melt just let your tears wash away.

In your eyes I see a light inside

Fill me with hopes and dreams and please, love me tonight.

In your eyes I just get swept away

All my worries and care all fade

In your eyes

Just want to get lost, in your eyes.

Just want to get lost tonight, in your eyes.

That Which Lies Within

Have you ever had a day where you feel like just sitting down and writing all that you're feeling? Many a times I have but when all done I toss the thoughts away like a secret never to be known.

Foolishly my emotions in thought rush in and I put it to pen. Seeing myself who the real me is. The one who hides inside out of sight from even him.

To go deeper then this I dare not. I walk along the shore letting the water but touch my feet I feel no more.

Guide Me

Heavenly Father help me

To do what is right.

Heavenly Father help me

To sleep through this night.

Heavenly Father give me

The strength that I need

To look those in the eye

Who've done harm to me.

Heavenly Father give me

The Strength to stand in their sight

And Heavenly Father help me

To forgive each night.

Oh, oh, oh , oh......

Oh, oh, oh

Oh. oh. oh. oh

Oh, oh, oh.........

God gives his love to me

In every word I sing

God holds me tight each night

As I lay in sleep

And I pray

I pray

Heavenly Father

I pray

Yes I pray

I pray

Guide me.........

If You Think You Know Me Lyrics

If you think you know me

If you think you do

If you think you know me

Here's some news for you

You don't, Really know me at all.

Why fight the fight When I'm the only one fighting

Why keep looking for what's been lost

When you don't know it's lost

Why give a damn if we don't see eye to eye anymore.

I'm stomping my feet and I'm walking out the door.

If you think you know me

If you think you do

If you think you know me

I've got news for you

You don't know me at all

I want to fly like I did when you first gave me wings.

I want to float amoungst the clouds

Reserved seating now gone.

I want to feel, alive inside.

I don't want to go walking in the fog of my life.

If you think you know me

Can't you see it in my eyes.

If you think you do

I've been fighting for you.

If you think you know me

Your not hearing at all.

If you think you do

I've got news for you

You don't, Really know me at all.

{Girl walks way}

Walking in to the light...............

Walking back in to hope and better days...................

Pressed For Time

There's not a day that goes by

I don't wish I could fly.

So many things I want to do and say.

But moments slip away.

Listen closely as I whisper in your ear.

Hear me now for I fear, you will never hear.

I got all the love in the world

I'm giving it all to you.

It's free no strings attached

No contracts no signing on the dotted line.

Love can't be bought

Love can't be won

You've got to give it all or it all comes undone.

Can't turn back the clock

Can't travel threw time.

I feel my life slipping away, so listen to all I say

Open your heart and look for love

If you hide away you'll never know it

I got all the love in the world

I'm giving it all to you.

It's free no strings attached

No contracts no signing on the dotted line.

Love can't be bought

Love can't be won

You've got to give it all or it all comes undone.

Can't turn back the clock

Can't travel threw time.

You've got to give all or it all comes undone.

Untitled

Some times when I sit down to write. There's something dying to get out but there doesn't seem to be a light. No topic of thought no first sentence to burst. Just a feeling within and it hurts. So I close my eyes and take a deep breath I let it all out and feel what is left. I try and I try to put it to words but the words just aren't clear and the feel lingers here.........................

Beautiful Life

Well it's another day

It's not the best.

You want to leave the world hide

Say to hell with all the rest.

It's another night

You've gotten in a fight

He's leaving you for another, a second time.

Feels like the world conspires against you

You Know better.

But it's a damn shame

And you blame it on the rain, out side.

Cover up your head, wish away the day.

Won't make it right, not this time.

You want to drink the night away

Loose yourself but what you don't realize

Is it's a damn shame.

A waste of a beautiful life.

Well it's another day and the sun rays

You're seeing for the first time.

It's another night and though you're alone.

You're feeling pretty good inside.

Feels like the world is at your feet.

You've got far to go but you think you've got it beat.

He was bringing you down, out of the light.

Spread your wings angel and fly...

Such a beautiful life.

A beautiful life.........

Beautiful life.

He was bringing you down, out of the light.

This part is not a man, it's the demon inside her, all the wrong choices she has made. It's her realization that she controls her life not the world around her.

Sit In This Moment

It is in this time this place this moment at will

I take a breath ,sit silently still.

I've watched the tiny hummingbird pass me by

And seen a shift in the clouds in the sky.

I've heard the laughter and wiped the tears

I've felt sadness, gladness and fear

I've had enlighted moment some pass me by

I've had a few of even those in my life

Stop worrying you worrier.

You'll be worse for where.

Sit in this moment, sit in this chair.

Seasonal Day

Whisper gentle wind, unto me what you know

Of all the years past and of where you go.

Tell me, tell me falling rain drops of where do you come.

What has happened there, that made you run.

Oh, soft sun upon my face.

I wasn't sure if I'd see you today.

For you were hiding from the moon for so long.

Watch out! He's coming along.

Today was a seasonal day at it's best.

The wind, rain, sun, moon and now rest.

Snowflake

There's a change in the seasons

Leaf's turn red, yellow, brown.

A season that beckons me

I impatiently wait for it to hit the ground.

Pure as light

As light as the wind.

Each a different shape and size

They are my tiny friend.

Only for a second will I see them.

Once, never again

But anew with each year

Will come to me, as a friend.

Dropping lightly with a chill

Upon my palm.

My eyes meet thee and as they fade

Forever a happiness they bring to me.

A season that beckons

The eye to see the small.

Slumber Town DO NOT ENTER

Wake in mid of night.

Slip slumberly out of sight.

Threw mist and fog we wade

A journey of minds we take.

Come to me, in whispers

Come to me.

Come to me, in whispers

Come to me.

Full moon in mist, in light

Of a dark and eery night.

Creatures linger near

Haunting wales we hear.

Come to me, in whispers

Come to me.

A gathering of soul this night.

A binding energy in light.

A fallen fellow sinks beneathe the earth.

No sounds no longer heard.

Darkness falls.

Long to belong.

Step silently into the mist of your mind.

A town of souls sleep this night.....

Candles flicker wind rushes in

Chills they fill you deep within.

A thousand years has since past us by.

This very night the souls still lay.

The time grows late

I bit you night

But before you go remember

Don't sleep this night

Come to me, in whispers

Come to me.

Come to me, in whispers

Come to me.

Take A Leap Of Faith

Going about your busy day

Get carried away

Swept up in what was happening

Walking by the crowds

Deep in thought, no thought at all.

Just getting yourself through the day.

All it takes is a single glance

Loves got one chance

But if you're not looking who's to see

Love passes by

And you're left lying awake at night.

Wondering why

Love hasn't found you yet, get your feet wet.

Take a leap of faith.........

All it takes is a single glance

Loves got one chance

But if you're not looking who's to see

Love passes by

And you're left lying awake at night.

Wondering why

Love hasn't found you yet, get your feet wet.

Take a leap of faith.........

Take a leap of faith

Take a stumble take a fall

Loves the greatest fall of all.

Take a leap of faith.

It's A Gerry Thing

When looking at such a creation

You can't help but wonder

How he was put together.

Blood runs threw him.

Air fills in his lungs.

You can see his chest rise and fall.

He's a form of meditation in himself

But the mystery to us all is...............

How hot the heat can get.

What makes him run cold.

Or fill with fiery

What thoughts linger there.

He sleeps.........

The Caller

Softly hitting upon my pillow.

Drifting freely into sleep.

A warming breeze awakens me.

Grass beneathe my feet.

Hillsides rolling by I don't care I don't ask why.

Blue skies over head sun shines down on me.

I fall to the earth just to be.

Lay with me...

Watch the clouds roll by

Time and space don't matter in my eyes.

Birds they fly so carefree.

I wonder if they take notice of me.

I breathe....

Ringing Ringing in my head.

I situp in my bed.

I breathe....

Another day has come the caller said.

Deer On The Road/ Or In It

As I come to a road well traveled many a times.

The sun light starts to rise and the foliage is refined.

This creature jumps out without a leap of care.

Stands in the road questing a dare.

I slam on the brakes stand still in thought.

Just a few feet apart no question no fault.

The creature looks in my eyes.

Not a moment to spare

And finds deep inside a person with care.

I look in the rear view mirror not a single soul in sight.

Just me and the beast, an amazing sight.

I look it up and down fine form and good health.

Another day to live, another day well.

Many a times I've seen a gastly sight.

These creature scattered up about on the left and the right.

Blood stains and carcass splattered about.

I wonder what was so time consuming that we did not care to look out.

I ask this of you on your next drive to anywhere.

Hold thought to conscious hold tight to care.

This world was not made for just you or I.

There are beautiful sights that humans seem to pass by.

Whispers Of Guidance Inspired by celtic tunes

Let me hold you close

Let me hold you tightly

Feel me in your arms

Feel the love so blindly

Let me follow near

Let me follow lightly

Feel me still right here

Feel the warmth so lightening

No distance can erase

No time no spot in space

Can break what we've embrassed

Let me hold you close

Let me hold you tightly

Feel me in your arms

Feel the love so blindly

Let me follow near

Let me follow lightly

Feel me still right here

Feel the warmth so lightening

It's time you found your place

Your spot and time in space

No distance can erase

That which you embrass

Let me hold you close

Let me hold you tightly

Feel me in your arms

Feel the love so blindly

Let me follow near

Let me follow lightly

Feel me still right here

Feel the warmth so lightening

No distance can erase

No time no spot in space

Can break what you embrass

Dracula's Castle

Stepping lightly upon the floor

Floor boards creek you pause once more.

A chilling breeze blows at the back of your neck.

You wished you had not come to this place at rest.

Cobwebs cling to everything

Dust covered chairs. No sight you bump into things.

The thunder sounds outside as you search for a light

But the electricity seems to be out, this night.

You strike a match light a candle insight

And see by your eyes a warming sight.

A fire awaits only to be lit.

Then you wonder, "Who here would have a fire like this?"

You turn quickly around feeling not quite so safe.

No noise do you hear, no noise do you make.

The castle seems quite empty

Not lived in for years

But it is not the alive

The live within here.

The hair on your neck stands tall with a chill

You feel you're being watched

You feel somewhat ill.

You head for the door without a moment to spare

It slams shut before you

Your heart races, you're scared.

From out of the shadow a hand reaches out.

The figure starts walking, the flames flicker about.

Then into view this being appear

He presence command that you stay only here.

He looks into your eyes

You take a deep breath in then out.

Relaxed to the core

You no longer want out.

As he approaches

You feel so light in thought

You wonder who he is

Secretly you long to be his.

He grins of pleasures to be had

He then circles about.

Wondering what has happened

That has kept you out.

Caught in a web

This manly being draws near

He leans in close and smells the scent

That has awaken him here.

He stands before you

And asks, "Why you have come to this place?"

You tell him your car had broken down

You've walk this way.

Strangely a dream you had guided you

To this somehow not so strange place.

"A dream?" he asks

"Is that what brought you to me?"

"Yes, I've dreamed of this place and you

many a nights in my dreams."

Game Of Chance

Same routine, everyday.

The sun rises and sets

Life goes a stray.

Same body in my bed next to me.

Same face that I wake up and see.

Just breathe

Just breathe

Remember when you got to me

Felt like I could hardly breathe.

Remember when our eyes met at glance

I knew I never had a Damn chance

Weak in the knees

Stumble across the floor

Though no one saw it

I felt my heart being torn

You took it then

And promised me

You'd keep it safe and happy

Just breathe

Just breathe

Wasn't looking for

A one night stand

Wasn't looking for

A game of chance

But I didn't know

Loves, a game of chance

How could I know

Loves a Damn game of chance

Just breathe

Just breathe

It's the same routine, everyday.

It's the sun rising and setting

Life goes a stray.

It's the same body in my bed next to me.

It's the same face that I wake up and see.

Just breathe

Just breathe

Loves a game of chance

Just breathe

Just breathe

The stakes are high in this game called Love.

Don't Let It Slip Away

Would it be all right if I ask you to stay.

You glance my way.

You circle about wondering

What has me hiding out.

Wondering why I want to feel safe in your arms.

Laying there next to me

I hear you breathe.

Laying there so peacefully

Do I dare to say

The moment slips away.

You wake up in the morning alone

You hoped things had changed.

What is it in me

That has me running scared

What is it I fear for it's only you there.

Do you dare to say

The moment slips away.

When I with you

I feel myself get lost in you.

There's no time to think

Just feel you and me.

Same old song

Same old dance

Just give me a chance.

You walk away, for fear I will not stay.

Another night Another day

I feel so empty.

Why couldn't I say

What you want me too say.

The moment slips away

When I with you

I feel myself get lost in you.

There's no time to think

Just feel you and me.

Rain pouring down and I can stop now

For I fear I will loose that which fear has denied

Another night Another day

I feel so empty.

When I with you

I feel myself get lost in you.

There's no time to think

Just feel you and me.

When I with you............

Don't let it slip away

Don't let it slip away

Time Waits For No One

Like the passing of time

I run threw my mind

Of all the things I've said and done.

And all the things I should have

Like the passing of seasons

I run threw my mind

Of all the things that have happened

All the things I wish

Time waits for no one.

Like a breaking storm, inside.

I don't want to loose this time.

Give it all you've got

Give it one last shot

Take a deep breath and just breathe.

Feel it in your heart

Feel it in your soul

Let the energy inside you free.

Time waits for no one.

Let me stop the sun from crossing the skies.

Calm the oceans, see with open eyes.

Tempt the fates and just be

Time waits for no one.

Time waits for no one.

Give it all you've got

Give it one last shot

Take a deep breath and just breathe.

Feel it in your heart

Feel it in your soul

Let the energy inside you free.

Tempt the fates and just be.

Time waits for no one..............

The Heart Of A Moment

To touch the heart of any one given moment.

Is to look into your soul and hear what it whispers to you.

It may whisper of a great joy that fills within you

Warming you to the core of your being

And makes you feel light

Like you are about to take flight.

It may tell you of a great ache inside that fills you

With such sorrow that you feel

Time stop and a silence falls about you

You feel a comfort wrap around you

In your time of such sadness.

It may whisper of a new found hope

As you feel silly and giddy

And want to see the world with new

Opened eyes

Love rushes in against you

Crushes down upon you

And you take a deep breath like it is the first breath of your life.

To touch the heart of any one given moment.

Is to look into your soul and hear what it whispers to you.

As silence falls upon this once awaken state

I sit in the moment with ease.

The four corners become hollow

With a ghostly creeking

And it is just you and me.

No words need to be spoken from the tongue.

As you hear my ever thought.

As a night watcher I wait for the last soul to put out it's light

And drift peacefully to sleep.

I close the book of time.

And head to mine own slumber.

It is there that visions dance with me

In the halls of my mind

Filled with light and laughter

It is only once I begin to dream

That all becomes known to me.

Of all the years past

Of where I go

Time holds no distance.

At any given moment I might find myself

Walking along a wooden path in a forest.

Or in a great building of Rome.

Secrets unfold

And I fear not the fear which lives inside of me

For I know I now walk the path home.

This is one subject I feel strongly about.

So much so that my heart aches and my soul beckon to god.

So many in the world don't have shelter, nothing but the clothes on their backs and a hungry inside.

The Angel Within

If I could have one wish

I'd dry your tears tonight.

If I could have one hope

I'd keep you warm tonight.

Sleep with me, there at your side.

And know that god has not forsaken you, tonight.

In your eyes I see the light

In your heart I see the fight.

In your soul I feel your soul reach to me, tonight.

If I could have one wish

I'd keep you warm tonight.

If I could have one hope

I'd keep you safe tonight.

Sleep with me, there at your side.

And know that god has not forsaken you, tonight.

I'm down on knees

I'm begging you to see

I'm give all there is to give of me.

Sleep with me, there at your side

And know that god has not forsaken you, tonight.

Try To Find Your Place

Step silently into the mist

See what you've become.

Know nothing that you see

Can ever be undone.

Moments will surprise

Bring you to your knees.

Like each blade of grass

Each moment starts there

At your feet.

Keep the shadows at your back.

The sunlight on your face.

Know that every moment

Is yours to put in place.

Life is one big puzzle

It's magical a maze.

We grow we learn

Keep moving forward

Try to find our place.

Stumble if we must

To learn in time we do

Just how important

Everything is we say and do.

When the hour runs late

Lay your head upon

The sands of time

Knowing we are man.

No one here is perfect

Perfection is a myth.

Touch the heart

Of one single soul

Is everyone's one gift.

Watch your footprints disappear

As time passes by

Will you be remember for

Who or What or Why?

Life is one big puzzle

It's magical a maze.

We grow we learn

Keep moving forward

Try to find our place.

Try to find your place.
