Sometimes I look at my life and wonder
what exactly it was that has made me the person I am.
* * *
Sometimes I wonder what causes me to have such empathy and deep love for those whose lives touch mine...and yet, have so very little left over for myself.
Sometimes I dance in the rain...just because I can.
Sometimes I doubt.
Sometimes, all of the time, I regret everything we'll never be able to do now.
Sometimes I believe that the small, exquisite moments throughout life almost make up for every ounce of heartache.
Sometimes I fall down more often than I move forward.
Sometimes I laugh so hard I cry.
Sometimes I tiptoe around the house after Mama & Elizabeth are asleep, just so I can stand over them & make sure that they are safe, and warm, and...there.
Sometimes I ache so much it feels like I can't even breathe.
Sometimes I say "I love you" far too often. But it's only because you can still hear me.
* * *
I have no idea where my life will take me, but I
always wish to live it with abandon,
and sincerity, and faith.
That, my friends, is my deepest desire.
