Fidelity…

Can’t you see the love that she has for you

feel the pain in her goodbyes to you

she lives like she found herself in you

many try but she’s given all she has to you

saying that she only has eyes for you

some say she’s lost herself to you

but that’s OK cause she sees things work out with you

you know when she’s blue and cheer her up on cue

never mind the fact that you remain so true

because your love for her found its way to you

some say that you’re a complete fool

settling for the one when you can have a few

but they don’t dance to the lovers’ tune

they could never understand what’s between you two

the grass is always green when far viewed

but see that every individual is just like you

subscribed to the laws of the yin-yang hues

away the fantasies of a better you in that other fool

what you both have is a simple tool

to use to make yourselves a life that’s cool

and forget all the other fish in the pool

Silver Flow Therapy

Watching you in my mind, 

sweet memories all one of a kind, 

you were my one true find, 

broken what had us bind, 

silver flow take it all away….

 

Saw it coming heard it knock, 

the piercing act that left me shocked, 

trusted that you had my back, 

and with you I would never lack, 

silver flow wash away the pain…

 

Whispering sweet nothings in my ear, 

deception tugging at my heartstrings, 

silver flow increase 

let the torrents of negativity out, 

silver flow release…..

Courage is fear that has said its prayers

Being brave is another way of saying have courage.  Courage to be happy. Courage to take risks. Courage to not only find your passion, but live it. We live in a world filled with judgment, doubt and pressure from all angles, often telling us what we should be or should do.  At times we are so used to hearing those conversations that we begin to have them with ourselves.

My wish for you today and always is to be the courageous you, whatever that looks like. You’ll know….because you know YOU better than anyone else.

XO,

Barbie

Lauryn Hill- Killing Me Softly

Lauryn Hill- Killing Me Softly

I will always love this song…music therapy is really something 🙂

Killing Me Softly lyrics
Songwriters: Gimbel, Norman; Fox, Charles;

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
And listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
