Do You Know what You Mean To Me?
Get Your Desires When I Retire

This poem was writtenw ith the thought of the innocence of children in mind. It's a curious juxtaposition, I think, how this poem was thought-inspiring to myself. Hopefully it has the same effect on you.

Four years you fought for me, my daddy, thank you.

You showed me diligence every time you pulled through.

You taught me t love hard and fight for life.

You taught me fate and God will always end the strife.

You taught me to treasure each moment and its best,

Taught me peace comes when we lie in eternal rest.

It still seems unfair that you’re done and you’re gone.

Unfair how it’s me who’s been missing you all along.

Can’t wait for the day I can again see your face,

For a place where time and fate will interlace.

Don’t think God considered the bond He’d break.

But you’re still in my heart- something time will never take.

Sometimes I’m crying because I want you by my side.

Most of these feelings I’m always trying to hide.

I’m all alone though I know you hear me,

You’re so far away but I feel you near me.

Tears of angels precipitate from the clouds,

And all I ever wanted to do was make you proud.

It’s my childhood dream, all I wanna do is be you,

Close my eyes, lose my breath, kiss the sky- now I see you.

WE WERE ALL CHILDREN ONCE

 

 

Babe, I could never say how you saved me.

Never tell just the kind of man you made me.

The dreams you manifested in my mind.

The dream I’ll pursue until the end of time.

You’re my beautiful disaster- my favorite mistake.

And I’ll never regret how I felt me heart break.

I still hold the feeling of your warm embrace,

Still remember all the feelings they said to erase.

It’s about one eternity. One moment. One dream.

Ask any who know me- they know what I mean.

There’s always that drive that seems unfazed.

Something unfaltered by time’s misty haze.

That drive that tells me I’ll always adore you.

The way I love you and say it openly before you.

Your embrace took away the sum of my fears,

And your sweet, soft lips were not meant for your tears.

Where of I’ve gone as low as you can go,

I still hold the dream you’ll forever know.

The childish dream that my touch will suppress your sigh.

I’m eternally yours. I love you, and goodbye.

WE WERE ALL CHILDREN ONCE

 

 

It was a time when forever was an endeavor,

When we all thought we were damn fuckin clever.

Before we experienced either pain or loss-

-The same time that taught me to embrace chaos.

When virtues were everything and the nothing was clear.

Charged headfirst into the future without any fear.

Learning of the past and making our mistakes,

Drying all the tears from each other’s face.

When getting dirty was fun and fun was getting dirty,

Before time even had a single chance to hurt me.

Knowing that destiny was to grow up and die,

Couldn’t change our fate but we’d sure as hell try.

I never had a father- I wonder what it’s like?

I wonder how that figure plays into your life?

Seeking my mother for comfort, only find peace

Peace in the arms of that early release.

For the only paradise is when you let go

Of all the knowledge you shouldn’t know.

As age takes control, we cannot be saved.

We’re being welcomed back to an early grave.

WE WERE ALL CHILDREN ONCE
