All It Takes







all it takes is a touch
a smile that reaches the eyes
to banish the darkness that lies
hidden deep inside the mind.
a touch to heal, a smile to give
hope eternal to a soul that needs
saving from the sins that pull
down, down into the abyss below.

Words do Fail


to describe what I see with my own two eyes,
of the beauty the morning sun brings
as it breaks the darkness as it wakes.

to describe what I can feel when I reach out to touch,
the things that surround me
in my own corner of the world.

to describe what I can hear whenever I close my eyes,
the music and laughter of the birds chirping,
and the way the wind whispers as it passes me by.

to describe the taste of life I am living at the moment
where love is ever present and comforting,
a special ingredient that I shouldn’t forsake.

Because deep in your mind
you know you need
a body to come home to
lest you become lost.

Because even in your solitude
you know how beautiful it can be
to reach out and touch
someone’s hands.

Because self-pity no longer works
and because you’ll never know
that there is someone out there
dying just to be with you.
