stop my heart from beating
where has it all gone
you don’t know how you don’t
read me a story, count all the minutes
between when the doors closed
the sheets, the covers
i told you when these day late hours
the only things left would be
that empty blanket and
where she sighed, happily
i told you that i’d always remember
our favorite songs
and gazing up at the ceiling
when you laughed and
thumbed through that magazine mindlessly
cause in those in between hazy daylight hours
was where my heart was
When the warm hours rust over and slowly turn to the steely sounds of rushing and of cold and water droplets leaking from dusty pipes
I will remember the nights we sat on my old apartment floor reminiscing and pressing our toes together to show that we understood.
I will remember the beach and the way that sand carried through the wind and how your laughter echoed across the paths of gulls as she ran out to play.
I will think upon those days of light footed exploration where foggy ponds became magical landscapes
Where we ran through the docks head on into our futures.
I will remember the way you laughed as you skipped gingerly across those mossy rocks. You always had a way of making everything worthy of a smile.
And I will remember all the nights you called me and told me, “Honey, everything will be alright.”
– It will be alright
just so long as you will always be my happy conversation
The one who forgets to put the chicken in the freezer
But that has never stopped me from loving you –
– it never has-
It has only ever made me love you more.
This song will always remind me of my sister.
Stay with me as we wind through eucalyptus trees. The wind’s in your hair, and we’re leaving it all behind. We’ll call these mountains home as we’re sleeping under stars…the color of your soul and mine are the same.
Your love will be safe with me.
Inspired by my sister’s post.
This song will always remind me of the excitement of starting something new. Driving at night and feeling that crisp, cool air of anticipation streaming in through the windows.
