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.

Exist

 

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

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

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