LOL... is that enough ? Off we go.. OURS ARE...

Take flight
through the night
naked moon glow
with the stars in your sight
reach for heaven and you will know
all of the gifts there God waits to bestow
He will grin as He welcomes you in to your home
Then jumble your thoughts with all that you know
if God was one of us He'd show
how everything has light
see the moon glow
in the night
take flight


My mirrored self

And if I could, I'd lighten the day
so the darkness no longer enfolds you
a spark for you
alone there
deep within your secrets
warm in the knowledge that you are loved

and still I long to be shown
my mirrored self speaking to my soul
in native tongues my heart has not learned
trapped in a bruised world
grey from this side
blue in a black suite

and here I share more
For I have rode a similar air
one that blew me to the pieces, brought me close,
smiled as the light faded in leaps and bounds
then left me to return on my own
knowing that if I return, if I can return,
that the light will be changed
as I am

And the sounds of ever after
are calling me in clear and unblimished dreams
taunting me into a belief,  that there, is better than here,
and I listen more often now
allowing those thoughts to bring peace to me
knowing my faith will be broken
if I allow me to take myself there
yet it seems so clear of the haze
and I grasp for that clarity
letting go

And again I wake
wondering why I was too weak to go
what strength it takes to let the darkness stay
and keep the light at bay

We still don't have the power to comment on your blogs friends, we are very hopeful that the problem will be fixed very soon... until then we hope if you can leave comments that you will leave us a link too
