November 30, 2009 - Separately Together

Separately Together

There is so much I need to do
I cannot just stay right here with you
There are so many places I want to be
And you can't always be right here with me

If we both could be everywhere at once
All at the same time
What happiness would this bring?
If we both sang the same song all the time
What new song could we sing?

Our path is one, our walk is two

When I'm away I'm still right here with you
Finding new things to learn and see
To share with you
When you're right here with me

Together, apart, You and me
Always together, Separately

November 29, 2009 - I Can't Even Tell Myself

I Can't Even Tell Myself

You are my deepest secret
Kept hid upon my highest shelf

I speak of you to no one
I can't even tell myself

When I am alone

I take you down
And peer inside your box

I memorize each item
And time is stopped upon my clock.

I am lost in thought
Of what could be

If you, I did not have to
Hide from me

Time moves once again
I put you back
Upon my highest shelf
I smile inside and know you're there
I just don't tell myself.

November 28, 2009 - Listen To Me

Listen To Me

You ask for truth
I speak it freely
I tell you how I feel
You say you hear me,
Yet I think you never will

Why does it always have to be your way
Do my feelings make a difference to you?
Our friendship means so much to me
As I know I mean to you

One should not attempt to hold onto
A heart one does not freely give
But give wings to what they cherish
and smile and watch them live.

Please listen to me--
I have been listening to you.

November 27, 2009- What A Mother Feels

What A Mother Can Feel

Daughter of Mine
Sweet memories we find
As we speak late into the night
We recall laughter and kisses
Bright stars and our wishes
And how we were both always right

Now you are grown
With a child of your own
The heart of your heart
Your soul's delight
You see what a mother can feel

You ask my forgiveness
For all you think
You have done
Take blame for imagined hurt
You think you have placed

Daughter of Mine
My beautiful light
No apology is needed here
Now that you know what a mother can feel
Know in your heart this is true
I only recall your sweetness
and the light that you bring
Each time that I think of you.

November 26, 2009 - Drowning


I am surrounded by an ocean
Of someone else's deepest emotions
They shake me to my inner core
My heart beats faster my senses roar
Until my Own emotions, I feel no more.

I am drowning in someone else's fear
Someone's pain and someone's tears

I reach deep inside myself and pull
The joy I feel, as My soul is full
I share that joy with the one in pain
And I find myself once again.
-Neva Flores
