“Lyrics”

sometimes
smiles
hide the pain

sometimes
silence
hides the rage

sometimes
words
can’t say it all

sometimes
songs
only matter

before I lose my mind
on purpose
I wanna remember You

when life’s bridge
gives way
it’s You Who pulls me through

if there’s a beginning
then there’s an end
as each story’s written
there’s no need to pretend
just live each moment
and fill each day
with life’s precious memories
as part of the play

“Cinderella”

every child is a glass slipper
but not every woman
wants to wear it
if only they knew
the joy of it fitting
the music of life
played to the beat of a heart
the rhythm of a giggle
the sound of a sneeze
the movement of breath
the chords of sleeping
all recorded
within the heart
of the woman wearing
the glass slipper
