A Little About Me

A Little About Me

A little about me, well let’s see.
I’m a little bit city
And a little bit country.
We can get hot and sticky,
Or curl up soft and comfy.
I’m a little bit playful,
And a little bit serious.
I’m a little bit mindful,
And a little bit curious.
We can walk or run, or
We can swim or splash.
As long as we’re having fun,
Life will be a blast.
I’m a little bit predictable,
And a little bit spontaneous.
But my love for you
You’ll always know.
I’m right here for you,
Nowhere else you’ll need to go.
Love,
D.

A Calm in My Soul Stirred

A Calm in My Soul Stirred

A calm in my soul stirred
A call in my heart I heard
My spirit lifted like a bird
I am free I am free as a bird

I am the song of the wind
I am the whisper in your ear
I am free I am free as a bird

I am the dream in your mind
I am the warmth in your heart
I am free I am free as a bird

I am the love in your eye
I am the love out of sight
I am free I am free as a bird

I am the passion on your tongue
I am the sweetness on your lips
I am free I am free as a bird

I am the ache in your heart
I am the sorrow of your soul
I am the lift of your spirit

You cannot catch the free bird
Just out of length of your reach
I am free I am free as a bird

I am free I am free as a bird
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide
Light and gentle on the breeze
Light and gentle You cannot catch
you cannot catch the free bird
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide.

A calm in my soul stirred,
a call in my heart I heard,
and my spirit lifted like a bird.

Light and gentle on the breeze I glide,
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide.

I am the song of the wind,
your broken heart I will mend,
the promise that I will defend.

I am the dream in your day,
your morning sunshine in May,
I will lead you all the way.

I am the love in your eye,
the love that makes you sigh,
the beat your heart skipped.

I am the passion on your tongue,
the sweetness on your lips,
the blush you can’t hide.

I am the ache in your heart,
the sorrow of your soul,
the spirit wine you just sipped.

I am free as a bird,
light and gentle your heart I just stole,
light and gentle your heart I just stole.

Light and gentle on the breeze I glide,
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide.
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide,
Light and gentle on the breeze I glide.

Me, The Great Inspiration

Me, The Great Inspiration

We all look for things that inspire us, inspire to not give up, to try harder, to do better, or be a better person. Most everyone looks for inspiration somewhere. Beams of sunshine filtering through clouds inspire some people. Great and beautiful landscapes will inspire some people, perhaps to become a photographer, or an artist. People inspire other people too. We can easily recognize those people who are sources of inspiration to others. They will attract many people to gather around and even follow them. Athletes, actors and actresses, and musicians to just list a few of the most obvious. Then you have me.

I inspire everyone I meet or come in contact with. If you are not in one of the categories of careers that are most notable for attracting both the people who inspire and the those looking for inspiration have you ever wondered what it must be like to be one of those people? You have probably dreamed of having their fame and fortune, but probably not what it must be like to know that the success or failure of so many other people hinge on your every action. Many people watching and studying everything you do hoping to learn how to become just as successful and perhaps famous and wealthy. But what does it truly feel like to be an inspiration for so many other people? Most of the highly inspirational, highly visible people seem to shine being in the spotlight. They will talk about how wonderful life is and how great it is to help other people, but rarely if ever do they share how they feel deep down inside. This is why everyone is always surprised and shocked when one of these people commit suicide; no one really had any idea of the weight inspirational people carry. I am going to offer you a rare glimpse into my private life of what it feels like to be an inspiration to others.

I inspire everyone I come in contact with and I inspire them with every single little thing I do. Think about that for a moment. Don’t think I’m just full of myself. Many of the greatest inspirational people in our society possess the “holier than thou” attitude and yet most people will look past it or just not recognize it. It is not judgement that I want to come to mind, but thought, compassion. What is it like to be one of those very inspirational people? How does it feel from the inside? It can be difficult to explain so I am going to share some simple examples.

When I draw a picture, I inspire people to tell me how I could have drawn it better. When I bake, and share my homemade some cookies, I inspire people to tell the one missing ingredient that would make them taste good. When I paint my house, I inspire my neighbors to tell me vinyl siding would look better. When I plant a tree, I inspire them to tell me that the kind of tree I planted isn’t any good. When I make a jewelry box I inspire people to tell me all their own ideas for a good jewelry box. When I write a poem, I inspire people to tell me about a poem they once wrote back in the third grade. When I spend the weekend trimming the trees in my yard, I inspire people to tell me it is better to let professionals do it. When I cut my hair, I inspire coworkers to tell me about the time they got a really terrible hair cut too. When I walk, I inspire people to tell me that my posture isn’t correct. When I eat, I inspire people to tell me I could be chewing my food better. When I breathe, I inspire someone to tell me how to breathe properly. I don’t know that there is anything I do that doesn’t cause inspiration to someone else. What can I say, I am an inspiration to everyone I meet or come in contact with, even you.

A Free Bird

A Free Bird

i am a free bird
the song of the wind
the whisper in your ear.

i am a free bird
the dream in your mind
the warmth in your heart.

i am a free bird
the love in your eye
the love out of sight

i am a free bird
the passion you taste
the sweetness on your tongue

i am a free bird
the ache in your heart
the sorrow of your soul
the lift of your spirit
you cannot catch
just out of reach
though you may stretch

I am a free bird
light and gentle
on the breeze i glide
light and gentle
on the breeze i glide
light and gentle
on the breeze i glide
light and gentle
on the breeze i glide
