Growing

Ten little fingers, ten little toes

Two little eyes and your button nose

Growing bigger every day

On the go, always play

Sweet smiles and giggles

All day long with the wiggles

 

How do you drive me to the brink of insanity

Just to bring me back with a hug and kiss

Withering away all my anxieties

Into your hug I submiss

 

With each passing year

There will be more tears

You have grown so tall

But in my heart you’ll always be small

You, my son, are growing too fast

One day you’ll look to your past

To see that I was always there

Through the times you didn’t think I cared

My love love for you is ever steady

Even when you are ready

To leave your childhood behind

The last line doesn’t have a rhyme! 😀

The Key

Our conversations aren’t what they used to be

I remember when you’d take the time to listen to me

We used to be so carefree

You still have the key to my heart beats

Even though my head says leave

I have to stay, to know, if you still love me

Standing Strong

I stand beside him through it all,
I’ll be there to catch his fall.
His fight are my fights,
Even through his sleepless nights.
The bad memories play continually,
But he can always count on me.
I’ll hold him when he can’t take no more,
As we fight together against this war.
For his battle scars they run deep,
For his lost buddies he continues to weep.
Everyday that he chooses to live,
Is another day his heart, to me, he gives.
So, I’ll continue to be strong for him,
Even when it all seems too grim.
To see him through another battle,
Even when our nerves are rattled.

Wish

starry-skyGazing at the starry sky
Awaiting for my dreams tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Hold you in my arms this night

Of all the things I could wish for
I wish to be with you forevermore
For it is only you I adore
You’re the one I fell for

Our conversations aren’t what they used to be
I remember when you’d take the time to listen to me
We used to be so carefree
You still have the key
To
My
Heart.

Hello

If you haven’t been here before I write poetry and lots of other stuff. I am currently working on a novel and a screenplay. I am a student studying creative writing to improve my abilities. I play guitar and piano but not as good as I’d like to so I practice just about every day and more on the weekends. I would love to learn to play the banjo. One thing at a time though.

Just wanted to do a little intro. If you have an instagram account my ID is coffeewrite6. I share my work there as well.

Catch ya later!

Message for collabs!
