All of Me

I have been working  a lot lately on my upcoming book.  *This book is inspirational.  My life is no different than anyone else with all of its achievements and challenges.  I am writing it to help others.  I want it to be the book I wish I could have read at 18.  The book will be a mix of poetry and short stories.  Each chapter will have a theme.  This post will not give away the book – it’s just letting you all know what is coming up soon.  My focus has been on this book for the last few months.  I am finally allowing myself to get excited for the future.

*This is not a book about love…just life lessons.

Below  – just a snippet of what you will find in the book.  The below poem is not in the book.

The Love Song

You don’t seem to know what’s real

when you are by yourself

and you think the rain is just for you when you cry

because you don’t know why

the sun shines on everyone else

You don’t know why love comes to those who wait

when you’ve waited all of your life

You think it’s a joke when someone asks, “Are you having a good day?”

What does that really mean…

when everyday is the same

And you think the rain is just for you

when you cry

because you don’t know why love comes to those who wait

when you’ve waited all of your life

If he kissed you…would it put a smile on your face

would it be better if he gave you a hug instead because

it seems like you need one anyway

What if he told you, you should take a walk

in the park with him when it’s late

would you freak out if he tried to sneak a peek into your soul

Can he come inside and take a walk and know everything

Can he recognize you when the days are over

and you know you are not alone

He can stimulate you in every way …especially your mind

he wants to hug you because you always seem to need one anyway

when you run, he runs close behind telling you…

if you ever lag behind he will carry you

so…no more telling yourself

the rain is just for you

no more crying

no more wondering why the sun shines on everyone else

and yes, they were right

because love does come to those who wait

and he’s here

here to feel you when you need to feel

so no more!

no more sadness

go on….go on and tell everyone the rain

the rain will fall as it may

but it doesn’t mean it’s for you

so just smile, just smile

or laugh, just laugh
