Unmoored

“When we take a real vacation – in the true sense of “holiday,” time marked by holiness, a sacred period of respite – our sense of time gets completely warped. Unmoored from work-time and set free, if temporarily, from the tyranny of schedules, we come to experience life exactly as it unfolds, with its full ebb and flow of dynamism – sometimes slow and silken.”

See how I’ll leave with every piece of you,
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do.

  1. It’s ok to be sad.
  2. This is really hard for you.
  3. I’m here with you.
  4. Tell me about it.
  5. I hear you.
  6. That was really scary, sad, etc.
  7. I will help you work it out.
  8. I’m listening.
  9. I hear that you need space. I want to be here for you. I’ll stay close so you can find me when you’re ready.
  10. It doesn’t feel fair.

You Forever

Tell Him I Said Hello

Look into his eyes
When you speak my name.
Maybe there’s a spark to start another flame.
Do I love him?
Don’t say yes or no
If he should ask you.
But he won’t I know,
Cause it’s all over and forgotten.
Just tell him I said hello.

Song: Tell Him I Said Hello

I know you like the back of my hand.
Got a heart of gold and a piece of land.
I’m your girl and you’re my man,
And we’re makin’ plans.
