    Alone on a Cliff
    I Knew I was a Lucky One
    There are Some Days that the World Revolves around Me
    It’s Like it thinks I’m the Sun
    It’s Almost Like I’m on the Edge of a Cliff
    and All I Wanna do is Take Flight
    But I Find Myself All Alone
    I Guess Some people just can’t Seem to Handle the Height
    They Prefer a Different View to Their Worlds
    From a Much Lower Site
    So
    I’m Gonna Spread my Wings
    And be Carried by the Wind
    But I Won’t look Down
    Or I Might see a Whales Tail or a Shark Fin

    I Hope they Have a Bed
    Let’s just Keep Going This Way
    There is Something up Ahead
    I Don’t Care What it is
    I Just hope they Have a Bed
    Are you Sure, Though? We’ve Been Going Straight for a Long Time
    Relax, Dude
    We are Fine
    Your Phone is Gone, So I’ve been Following Mine


    Little Traditions
    Sometimes…
    When we Are Losing Someone Really Really Important to Us
    We Hang on to A Lot of Little Things
    Any Little Traditions
    That we Possibly Can
    Just to Keep the Connection…
    Anything…
    Including Questioning…
    What is out There?
    Should I Dare?
    Do I Care?
    Or..
    Am I Just Scared?
    Not This Time
    This Time I Go
    This Time I Am Prepared

    Lost in Sleep
    Where do You go When you Get Lost in Sleep?
    Do You Go to the Mountains?
    Do You Look for Buried Treasures in an Old Dragon’s Keep?
    Or Do you Go to the Pasture and Count all the Sheep?
    Promise me One Thing
    No Matter Where you Go, Though
    That if you ever find yourself on a Cliff Just Shut your Eyes
    Just Leap!!
    You’ll Fly
    It’s Amazing how Funny things Can Happen when we are Fast Asleep
    But be Ever Wary
    Sometimes…Sleep don’t come Cheap
    All these Years go by and it feels like there is Nothing left to Say
    Sometimes… Thoughts get a Little Fuzzy
    The Memories come back to Us in Icy Shades of Blacks and Grays
    But That’s Ok
    These are just the Types of Days that have Outlived their Momentary Stays
    We Thrive when We Dream in Color, Anyways
    I Dream of the Stars in the Sky
    And the Mountains up High
    And I Dream of Rivers and Streams
    All of these I See in My Dreams
    These are My Memories
    Forever Filled with Wonder
    I Don’t Know about You But I’d Rather have Dreams
    With Some Mountains and Some Streams
    Then Those of the Icy Tundra

    I Used to Think
    I Used to Think…
    Everyone has that Something they Want to Be
    And I Used to Think…
    Everyone has All these Places they Need to See
    And I Used to Think…
    Everyone has Someone That they Get to See All of these Place With
    I Used to Think..
    Everyone has Someone else, But Me
    Everyone Else but Me…
    I Don’t think That Anymore
    But…
    Everything that these people want Me to Be..
    I Am More than just the Sum of what They See on the TV
    And I have Met Enough People to Know that this World has been Calling to Me
    And I’m Happy to Say…
    I’m Finally opening my Eyes to All the Possibilities that I’m Starting to See

    Just a Man
    What if…
    I were just a Man?
    And…
    What if…
    You were Just a Girl?
    Would I Still feel the Need to Write this for You?
    Or…
    Would You Not Yet be a Bigger Part of my World?
    But…
    I am Not just a Man
    And…
    You are No Ordinary Girl
    I Knew it The Moment I Saw You
    When the Music Played…
    and We began to Whirl… and to Swirl… and to Twirl
    But…
    I Didn’t Say Anything, Then…
    Maybe, to You…
    I Am Just a Simple Man
    Hard to Love
    and Not Making it Easy…
    Maybe, Someday…
    I Won’t Be Just a Simple Man
    Hopefully, Someday…
    That’s What You’ll See

    What If…
    I Were Just a Girl?
    And…
    What if…
    You were Just a Man?
    Would I Still Do Anything To Make You Happy?
    Anything at All…
    That I Can…
    For My Best Friend
    When I Saw You…
    We Danced…
    And I That’s When I Knew…
    I Couldn’t Figure it Out, Why…
    Until That Day…
    Why You had Never been a Bigger Part of My Plan
    But…
    I Didn’t Say Anything, Then
    Maybe, To You..
    I Am Still Just a Girl…
    Not yet a Woman…
    Difficult….at times
    And not making it Easy
    Maybe, Someday…
    I Won’t be Just A Girl
    Hopefully, Someday…
    There will be A “You and Me”


    Rhyming Crimes
    Oh, My Dear
    My Darling Dear
    I Will Forever Be by Your Side
    I’ll Be with You Through it All
    Until the End of Time…
    Did You Notice what I Did Right There?
    Those, Two Words…
    They Don’t even Rhyme
    But…
    Two Words, Not Rhyming Well
    That’s Should Matter
    Words not Rhyming Well Together..
    Well…
    It’s not a Crime
    And…
    Even though I May be Gone
    Know…
    That it’s only in the Physical Way
    I Try to Make You Notice Everyday

    You Will Always be My Baby
    And…
    You Will Always be OK

    Misunderstood Adulthood
    Just Cause You Could
    It Doesn’t Mean You Should

    It’s All Still Possible…
    And…
    in all Likelihood…
    Even during your Boyhood or Girlhood
    Chances Are…

    Whatever Reasons You Need…
    Whatever Bridge Your Decide to Jump from
    Or…
    Whatever Cliff you Decide to Dive from

    Just Do Them For You
    And You’ll be Just Fine

    Life Offers Up, Everyday A Thousand different Terrible Ideas

    But…
    Always Remember…
    The Struggles have helped us to Get Here…
    Across the Miles and Miles of Who You Are
    And…
    No Matter What…
    You Will Never Forget the Distance You have Traveled
    Nobody Else…
    Can Possibly Comprehend Just how Far
