it’s christmas eve and i hope you find yourself
surrounded with love, friends near and far, and good cheer
for although this year might not be like any other
we’ve experienced before, my hope is that love never changes,
that friendships continue to exist and strengthen
even through a layer of digital screens and beautifying filters,
and even with all the data bouncing between us,
there is still that thread of all things true –
friendship, lovingkindness, and trust
and know always that i am thankful for you
that’s all i can say thank you for showing me the good in every day the happy smiles, the laughter, each naughty thought, every honest answer everything about you i’m so grateful for and if others can’t see it let them go just don’t forget the strength inside your heart for your whole is so much better than just the parts that others want you to be unable to see what i’ve always seen a soul so fearless and loving it’s what you’ve always been.
little journeys here and there
that’s where your love has taken me secrets long hidden now exposed revealing little truths I didn’t see
that i’ll always be beautiful in your eyes
and maybe one day i’ll see it in mine until then i’ll hear you whisper the words in my ear till each discovery will ring true in time
In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank?
…and last but not least, I want to thank the muse,
you know who you are –
for whenever the mood strikes me you’re there
giving me what I need, no matter how bizarre.
You’re there with me in the morning,
long before the sun rises,
you stay with me till the evening –
you with your many disguises
You come whenever I call,
no matter what the hour,
you stay with me till darkness claims me,
you never give in, you never cower
from whatever I subject you to,
whatever I desire
you’re the muse who keeps the light alight,
you keep my soul forever on fire.
