“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

We caught the rainstorms

We danced in raindrops

We found the rainbow

More colorful that most

Our conversations

Like sand and water

Don’t go but then again

They compliment each other

They compliment each other


The day’s eventful

The night is grateful

The world seems to laugh

But not at us

Life is amazing

Nothing is crazy but

Both of our grins

And honesty



We gave our heart’s up

Then told nobody

We liked the way it was

So secret and secure

You had the treehouse

I had the swingset

Now we are grown and gone

The promise safe with me

The promise safe with me

Hide and Seek (Memories of My Childhood)

i was playing in the sandbox

building castles that fell too quickly

i was humming to myself

and i heard a voice saying

“ready or not, here i come”


i am guilty of building my castles

when there you were, counting away

here i am, caught out in the open

no time to run

to my usual hiding place


can’t you see? i wasn’t ready

now go back home and count again

but fair is fair, you say to me

i’ve won where you have lost

and i want to play another game


disappointed i shake my fists

but sit down on the grass anyway

i swallow back my bitterness

and subject my hands

to a halfhearted patty cake
