Special Place

Special Place

Shopping carts, cars start

Smell of pavement, hot and black

This is where I free my mind

When my calmness is out of whack


Old people, young people

Children running amuck

This is where I free my mind

When everything gets stuck


Windshield, steering wheel,

These views I can see

This is where I free my mind

When I can no longer see


Children cry, people sigh

These things I can hear

This is where I free my mind

When I am in need of cheer


Parking lot, parking spot,

This is where I am,

This is where I free my mind,

Anytime that I can.

The Return

The Return


The thoughts bring sighs, wonderful and calm

Cold heart vanishes, warmth replaces

The countdown starts, arrival to come

Memories of love, time, and places


The time draws near, wired but collective

Familiar face appears, eyes seek eyes

Knowledge of the past, remembrance flows

Warmth and light, replace dark skies


Misery dissolves, hearts beat in sync

Thick fog dissipates, night slithers away

Wounds heal and hearts sing, two souls complete

A wholeness engulfs, no longer gray


Knowledge of an end, does not flicker

Tomorrow heeds gloom, love will be gone

But for this day, today, after many alone

This day feels whole, feels like home.
