Do you still think about me?
Am I one of your painful memories?
Do I cross your mind when you're all alone and trying to sleep?
I can say that all is the truth for me
I'm just a grain of sand and you are the sea.
You wrap around my brain until I can't fucking breathe.
Do you remember trying not to cry?
The day we finally said goodbye.
Feeling like we're alone but surrounded by a hundred ey...

The strength of your light
catches me unguarded
how brightly you shine
how confusing to me
The confidence of your glow
magnetic from all angles
I'm softened in the shadows
but your light does not permit them
so challenging to me
Brighter than in our youth
brighter still than photographs
we talk and take a new one
twenty years since the...

Bears, bears, bears!
There were bears everywhere
Now he saw them, all those bears throughout his years.
The Panda Bear.
She would come out and stare, and stare.
Blinking ringed black eyes against the rare glimpsed sky.
Serene and sober
Conversely troubled but not in a rage
She'd think for a minute, slowly turn, then go back to her cage.
The Grizzly Bear....

They never changed that room.
Dolls, teddy bears, trains,
And transformers all hold space,
Lock time in perpetual stasis.
When death comes life stops.
Family said they should pack
Things away. It’s too hard
To be reminded day after day
Of a future lost in the past,
But a room can be a memorial.
It’s a museum of childhood,
Until a child of a later
Generation discovers it with

Through the kitchen, down the hall, in the last room on the left. There's a box in the closet. Small and square, behind some sweaters. Safe in a quiet place, yet always on my mind...
More than just a trinket, it's like an amulet
For when I hold it in my hands, my head and heart forget.
A talisman of testimony, to what was once so true
This tiny little object that makes me think of...

The trees still sentinel stood
their green leaves whispering
rustling gently in the wood
in the same soft breeze
and I know some summer birds
sang in their canopy
a requiem without words
'neath the same blue sky
that through every passing year
quietly watched over me
safe within Ceredig's sphere
It has been too long a time
since our firs...

hide and seek
one thousand and one
one thousand and
my head pressed against the bark
on the tree by the pond side
where the ducks quack back
at the boy with the ball
whose dreams are
not yet fully formed
two one thousand and three
sat by the brown muddy water
with schoolbooks spilling from bags
a kiss on the cheek
and we carve ...

When i look into your eyes
I know your still there somewhere inside
And as each passing day
Goes by I know another part of your memory dies
But you won't remember the goodbyes and it's hard not to sit here and cry
Because your trapped inside
All The confusion the conclusion
That your drifting away
Well I know that ships don’t stay long at bay
And will soon be h...

Walking hand in hand
Small warm hand
Reaches for and
Buries in my paw.
Mans hand, callouses and oil.
But still fists full of love.
Protection and love.
We kick leaves.
Golds and reds.
In browns and beauty.
The leaves fly up
Whirl and flow
Stick to our shoes...
