Letting Go



Remembering lost thought and unseen smiles
 Constant urges come upon me unannounced and send
 chills throughout my entire self
 My dreams don't allow me to see, the heart, as well as the soul

 letting go...
 In need to move and feel the wind
 Words just seem to sound better on paper
 There are only some days when you feel like

 nothing can bring you down
 I get dizzy just standing still
 But when the sun is shining or the moon is full,
 then why does it still rain ?

 I can never tell if my world may be coming together
 or simply falling to pieces
 I feel this could be a good thing
 I'd like someday to see a black cat with crystal green eyes

 All of my tears have turned to smiles
 and when I wake up, the sun is still shining.
