Nothing to lose

It`s funny how hello always ends with a goodbye,

It`s funny how good memories can start to make you cry.

It`s funny how forever never really seems to last,

it`s funny how much you`d lose if you forgot about your past.

It`s funny how friends can just leave you when you`re down,

it`s funny how when you need someone they`re never around.

It`s funny how people change and think they`re so much better,

it`s funny how many lies can be packed in one “love letter”.

It`s funny how people forgive even though they can’t forget,

it`s funny how one night can contain so much regret.

It`s funny how ironic life turns out to be

but the funniest part of all, none of that`s funny to me.

Today <3

Sitting on the steps, looking across the lake,
Wondering why, life at times, can seem great.
But in that second, it took me to just think,
My life could change, faster than a blink.

Is this a reason why we should always cherish?
Not knowing when loved ones may suddenly perish.
Living everyday, like it was our very last,
for our days could be very long or go by very fast

So I’ll cherish and take nothing for granted,
not say things that shouldn’t be chanted.
If this is the last day I have on this earth,
I accept my life, for what it’s been worth.

Tomorrow isn’t promised to young or old alike,
Today may be the last day I’m able to hold you tight.
Don’t wait for tomorrow, do it all today,
If tomorrow never comes, you’ll never regret a day.


Growing up

In a world filled with changes
each and every day..

I feel I’m being judged
for what I do n say..

I remember back to cars
and play days at the park..

When I didn’t worry about 
other people’s remarks..

Now lookin in the mirror
I see to my surprise..

A completely different person
staring in my eyes..

The care free little kid
I saw at 4 and 5..

Is now becoming a teen..
Just trying to survive…


Daddy <3

Words cannot explain
how much you mean to me
nothing could ever compare
or even ever be

you’re my daddy, my own and only
you were my leaning post
although I love my family
you’re the one I love most

even though you may not be with me
you’ll still be in my heart
you’ll always be real close
even though we’re far apart

while you’re in heaven, please watch over me
and help me as I grow
you have taught me so much
but there is still so much more to know

I’m not going to say good-bye
or that I can’t go on
I’ll say I love you, and see you later
even though you’re gone

I love you papa, more than you’ll ever know
I know you’ll be in heaven as a shining star
no matter how far away you seem
heaven is never too far
