Color drained
Seeping slowly
My life left behind
The only witness

Pale version
Of who I was
Who am I now?

Vibrance gone
Flittered away
Butterfly to a moth.

I need a reason to wake up.

Glowing soul
Radiant spirit
Such a 
Happy child
In life,
In death, and

His presence 
So many hearts
So many smiles
He brought 
To those around

And though,
We may not
Be able to 
Kiss him, 
Or hug him 
Every day
Or to take 
In his delights
As he discovers 
His world...

We can 
Live on,
That he will never
Sadness or
Or be wronged
At the hand of

Little Max
Will only know
He will only know

So when you're 
Feeling sad,
Just think of 
Little Max
And your heart
Will become full
Of his smile,
His laugh,
His happiness.

He will be
Waiting right 
There inside
Your heart.
To banish your
To give you
His love.

Though Max 
May be gone
From our world,
He isn't far away.
For, he lives
With the rainbows
From our tears,
Inside our hearts.

Becoming Me

Who am I
Deep down

Am I
A friend
Or foe?

Do I
Lift myself up
Or drag myself down?

Do I
In all I can be?

Or drown
In needless

The answer
I think
I know.

And now
It is time
To Grow.

Stand tall
And move
Right past,

This image
Of who I
Used to be,

And become

Farewell youth

Only a flutter,
Remembering the past
And then it's gone.
Never let it surface too long.
Gone are days of youth,
Each and every one.

Miss You

The life we lived
The things we did
All revolved
Around one another.

Time passed
We grew up
Things changed
And so did we.

I miss that life
I miss those people
But they're gone
They no longer exist.

I miss that hope
That anything is possible
That somehow
Things could be different.

I wish that
Life could reverse
So many things
That I'd do differently.

Take a missed opportunity
Turn it into history
Re-write the future
Make us both in the present.

I miss you
I love you
My long lost friend.

Too Late

Gone from my life
but not from my mind
Life has changed
You've lost your shine
Your image
fallen from grace
Is still
One of a familiar face

You are someone
I no longer know
Yet I feel no one
Could know you more
Your gift arrived
You pushed everyone away
Though I tried
You didn't want me to stay

Now on the outside
You seem much the same
But inside I know
Everything has changed
Your sadness began
You turned away
From your friends
From everything

I just hope you realize
Before it's too late.

Goodbye, My Friend

Said goodbye for good
Never looking back again
I am happy now.

And oldie I dug out of my archives...


You cut me off mid-sentence
To talk to someone else.
You ask me about my day
But change subjects before
I can answer.

I speak, yet no one hears.

Everyone makes plans
For things outside work.
But they never include me.
If only they would ask,
I would love to join them.

I bleed, yet no one sees.

People pass me as
I eat my lunch alone.
They wave and say “Hi”
To the girl behind me
No one say’s “Hi” to me.

I exist, yet no one knows.
I am invisible.

You are beautiful
Lovely as Monet could do
Best keep my distance
