thetorch

I see her smile in my dreams
Making up lost time
She whispers that she’ll never leave
‘Til dawn wakes up my mind

I wonder where this vision goes
And rather close both eyes
For another glimpse of heaven
Which seems fleeting like our lives

Even when I questioned my decision
That voice inside my head pled don’t let go
And while what is done allows for no revision
God I miss Lansing and the fall of snow

Sunflowers do wilt
Petals will shed
But when roots are not shallow
They may thrive again

 

Sometimes

Sometimes it takes the worst despair
To unearth what’s in your heart
Enduring pain rekindles flames
From sparks to raging hot

And sometimes it takes all you got
Rising up from grief
Getting through with faith renewed
Then letting go in peace

Old Habits

I can watch the stars shine
Almost any night that’s clear
Wonder from warm moonshine
Until it draws a tear

I can spend my whole life searching
For proof that love is true
But something I can’t seem to do
Is fix how I lost you
