Her muse is constantly challenging her to thrive, dig deeper for better verbiage and
find the hidden songs lying deep in her own soul~
That which thrives on the notion that you, the reader, will also hear her music

If Only I Could

I'd travel in time
If only I could
I'd teach myself
as a child
the lessons I've learned
through all these years since then
Trust would be earned
and my heart guarded.
I'd listen longer
when Daddy rambled
and treasure every word.
I'd hold Mama's truths
close to my heart -
If only I could.

My burdens I'd release
at the blink of an eye
and laugh at the notions
they attempt to cast
upon my weary mind.

I'd love for the sake of loving,
if only I could-
What I got in return
would be of no matter
I'd know that was true loving.
I'd live knowing
life is in the living
Wallowing in what could be,
would not be at all.

I'd study the petal
of many a flower,
understand the purpose
of pure beauty-
the joy in its gift of uniqueness
and see how
all that is life
is related,
meant to reflect one another
and enhance life's
giving attributes,

I would know sooner,
I was born to live,
born to love,
or die trying.
If only I could
