Do What Makes Your Soul Shine

Maybe this is a year for difficult conversations… Of the slow telling of truths that have been buried deep and long ago. Of, hopefully, letting go of fears that have been rooted in darkness and uncertainty.

Maybe this is a year of sunlight and hope. Of unexpected melodies that brighten up hearts and puts soft smiles on lips. Maybe this year the doubts will ebb away. Maybe this year it won’t be so hard to believe.

Every butterfly I get belongs to you
You don’t believe me, but it’s true
Sure, the freckles on my arm spell out your name
Real feelings coming through

‘Cause all I know and all I am is you
Yeah, all I know and all I am is you
I’m breaking my silence
‘Cause I’ve had a few
I just can’t deny it
That all I know and all I am is you

Every time I think I’m falling
I know you’re falling too
There’s no doubt you’re all in
If you ever think you’re falling
You know I’ll catch you too
‘Cause all I am is you

Every daydream I have starts and ends with you
I wanna play it one more time
When I need an alibi, you’re my perfect excuse
You are always on my side
‘Cause all I know and all I am is you

I’m breaking my silence
‘Cause I’ve had a few
I just can’t deny it
That all I know and all I am is you

Every time I think I’m falling
I know you’re falling too
There’s no doubt you’re all in
If you ever think you’re falling
You know I’ll catch you too
All I am is you

It feels like I’m miles away
You bring me back home again
You hold me through my mistakes
Let go as we start again
You’re a habit I’ll never break
No no, no no, no

I’m breaking my silence
‘Cause I’ve had a few
I just can’t deny it (oh, no)
That all I know and all I am is you

Every time I think I’m falling
I know you’re falling too
There’s no doubt you’re all in
If you ever think you’re falling
You know I’ll catch you too
All I am, oh
‘Cause all I know and all I am is you
Yeah, all I know and all I am is you
‘Cause all I know and all I am is you

Yeah, all I know and all I am is you

All I Am

The Love Letter Never Written (For Me)

Press “play” and then read…

 

         *          *          *

If I could make it better, I would.

I would swallow the sun and kiss it straight into your mouth if it meant you’d feel warm again. I would bury green gardens deep inside your heart if it meant you would blossom there. I would pull myself apart, jagged bone and soft skin, if it meant I could find the right pieces to put you back together again.

I would, darling. I would. But I can’t. For I learned time and time again that human beings cannot be saved, or fixed or grown by others – they can only be loved. So I will love you, and I will love you well.

I will love you on the days your laughter meets your eyes, and I will love you just as much when it does not. I will love you on the days you are made of light, and I will love you just as much when the world feels like a load you have to carry upon your shoulders. I will love you through your healing, and I will love you through your hurt. I will love you through your peace, and I will love you through your pain. I will love you when you love yourself, and I will love you when you do not.

I refuse to fall in love with the idea of who you can be if I were to nip and tuck and patch and sew you into someone else. If I were to throw a blanket over the baggage in your rib cage, only focusing on the prettiest parts of you. I refuse to love you in halves. So – show me where you thrive and I will love you there. Show me where you break and I will love you there. Show me where you hope and I will love you there. Show me where you doubt and I will love you there. Show me where you hide and I will love you there. Show me your open heart, flayed and beating in its decay and its growth, and I will love it, darling.

I will love it.

Eris

She knew I was standing on the edge, staring out at the horizon. She knew I would watch the waves crash against the cliff wall a thousand feel below. She knew I was holding on by a thread.

Then I heard Her voice whisper, “Build your walls. You’re not going to survive this.”

And there are moments… seconds… heartbeats… there are are breaths when I want to step off.

8 Minutes

Today I am happy.

“So don’t ever think I need more

I’ve got the one to live for

No one else will do, and I’m telling you

Just put your heart in my hands

Promise it won’t get broken

We’ll never forget this moment

Yeah we’ll stay brand new ’cause I’ll love you

Over and over again.”

Today was an awesomely beautiful day.

Turned my iTunes on and this came on…

* * *

Remember those walls I built?

Well, baby they’re tumbling down

And they didn’t even put up a fight

They didn’t even make a sound

I found a way to let you in

But, I never really had a doubt

Standing in the light of your halo

I got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened

Every rule I had you breakin’

It’s the risk that I’m taking

I ain’t never gonna shut you out!

Everywhere I’m looking now

I’m surrounded by your embrace

Baby, I can see your halo

You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more

It’s written all over your face

Baby, I can feel your halo

I pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo

You hit me like a ray of sun

Burning through my darkest night

You’re the only one that I want

I’m addicted to your light

I swore I’d never fall again

But this don’t even feel like falling

Gravity can’t forget to pull me back to the ground again

And it’s like I’ve been awakened

Every rule I had you breakin’

It’s the risk that I’m taking

I’m never gonna shut you out!

Everywhere I’m looking now

I’m surrounded by your embrace

Baby, I can see your halo

You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more

It’s written all over your face

Baby, I can feel your halo

I pray it won’t fade away

Halo, halo, halo

You’re everything

It’s written all over your face

Baby I can see your hale

I pray it won’t fade away, fade away

Halo, halo, halo, halo, oh

My phone is a genius.

And to all those who made this an awesomely beautiful day… Thank you.
