Glitch 

From time to time,
there’s a glitch in my heart,

in my mind,

and in my soul.

it leaves a cold spot, with a numbness.

I try to figure out how to revive it back to purpose.

I’m no doctor,

nor saint.

but I try to fit the pieces,

though inside my passions faint.

I hear a voice that is still and kind.

I regain a new strength from the Creator of my mind. 

he tells me he’s patient,

and merciful,

and good.

I am still in my spirit,

and now understood.

Your Great Big Purpose 

My heart beams with joy when I think of how much you’ve grown.

It’s bitter-sweet, because you aren’t biologically mine, 

Though I’d go through extraordinary lengths to provide for you, 

take care of you,

protect you,

and be there for you.

To dry your tears,

to help you see,

that this life you know doesn’t necessarily have to be.

You have the power to make a plan,

to use your mind,

and dig deep within. 

You are smart,

and kind

and capable.

To do anything,

We are so very changeable.

Even though our time was short,

I’ll always be your teacher with an open heart, 

To lift you up,

to encourage,

and promise…

To remind you of your great big purpose.

To shape your mind to help you see,

that all we have is opportunity. 

So try your best in all things and don’t you ever give up,

You will either learn a great deal or may even succeed.

But nothing is lost at all,

through planting that one tiny seed.

Heart Made Whole

Give me fresh words,

that will rest in my heart.

Wash over a still peace

to create a brand new start.
My eyes long to see you,

My ears search for your word.

In your presence I’m free.

In your presence I’m free.
You know every inch of my body and soul.

You are the only one who understands me.

You take every broken part and make it whole.
The tears aren’t wasted,

they are meant for something good.

The time was well worth it,

even when it was misunderstood.
You know every inch of my body and soul.

You are the only one who understands me.

You take every broken part and make it whole.
With patience, you wait for me

With mercy, you surround

Your love knows no boundaries.

In you, I am found.
You know every inch of my body and soul.

You are the only one who understands me.

You take every broken part and make it whole.
