*I Just Can't Seem To Wake*



 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


As the sun goes down

My thoughts run free

Can't get rid of this frown

Struggling with myself

Fighting with me


No one will help me chase

These feelings held within

Slowly losing my mind

Slipping into an abyss of darkness

Somewhere unkind

Everythings just a madness

Someone true to find

Before my body gets weaker

And it takes a journey it must take


Away from the body it once live

So very much at stake

Leaving the body thats begining to rot

Soon will be pushed away with a rake

But its heart has not stopped

Only very badly torn

This has to be a dream

But it doesn't feel fake

The soul now loose at its seam

The demons try to take


To make it a nothingness

But a true soul will come to thee

Help it heal 

Make it a greatness

Help you feel

And give you love like never before

Set your pain free

Help you soar

Give back what the demon created

Take back what has been devoured

Hopeing this newness you'll store

And never again feel sour


Put the beat back into your heart

Give back your feeling

Never from your soul part

I my dear was brought to you 

I'm here to give your life a meaning

My friend  I'm here to keep your soul

Here to keep your thoughts new

Keeping you smiling will be my ever lasting goal


Even though I can't seem to wake

You will help me through

You will help my soul at any cost

By my side you will be 

Making sure I don't get lost

In my heart I always knew

My soul you'll never set free 





Author's Notes/Comments: 

I may add more or change it.... Doesn't feel complete yet. I'll come back to it :-)

*One More Day*



 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


I pray to God above

Just for one more day everyday with you

For I am blessed with the love

Sent by the one that's true


Sometimes I'm left with nothing to say

Because I no longer can find the words

I am thankful to have found someone

To take care of me and to repair my heart

To enjoy each days fun

It's like my wish come true

Right from the start


When I wished on that lucky star

Let God be my witness

My days when I'm with you 

From my heart you're not far

My life is no longer blue


My heart sings of joy and happiness

To beable to spend one more day

To be by your side

Through our ups and downs

For our tears when we cried

For when we asked for forgiveness

And when we wore so many frowns

For when we made up after sadness

I thank the lord above for our happiness


It would mean the world to me 

To just have one more day 

Before I have to set you free

Just that one more day makes a difference

To have a special day to be 

A great romance

God didn't take you from me 

I get to have my one more day 

My love for you God made me see

I'll always love you is what i have to say

I may change this a bit im just having writers block right now

*Too Over Protected*


 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


You can't protect me from everything

You can't lock all the doors

Can't keep me from doing my own thing

Because soon enough my anger

Will soon hit the floor


If I choose to do something

You can't keep kicking me out

Because you don't like what I do or hang with

Or because its not on what you want

Just to let you know keep it up

And my soul will ghostly haunt


Can't you see I can't breathe

With you holding me down

Or trying to force my way

"This is what's good for you"

Listen it's not me 


Everyday you never see I always hide my frown

And I put on an act with a smile 

So happy all joy

But understand it can only last for awhile

Sooner or later I'll break

And that is then my soul God shall take


Can't you for one minute look

And see that this pain runs deep

And that cry you hear at night 

It's me 

Letting my tears free

Because sometimes the pain hurts so bad 

I can't sleep you even make mad

These emotions won't set me free

I remain trapped too over protected


You are driving me up the wall

Why do you care when for me someone calls

It's none of your concern

Why can't I go out and explore

Just to go out and find what I can learn

My freedom I want more


Stop trying to lock me in this hell hole

Let me make my own path

Before I get too old

Let me decide my future all my own

Let me be me 

Before I'm too grown

Too over protected

Set the thought free

*You Walked In*

Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins

You walked in 
And my broken heart went out the door 
And "me" you won

My heart 
My soul 
Everything within every part 
Keeping you love is my goal

When you walked in 
You set my fears free 
I've changed within 
I'm happier and everyone can see 
That you made me a difference 
I'm a newer person the whole way around 
I just love your presence 
That day was so wonderful you is what i found

I admit it it took along time 
To get where i am now 
You i want to forever wine and dine 
In every way i know how

I'm so beyond words it was you that walked in 
That brought such sunshine 
And such a great person to love 
I really truly thank the lord above 
That you're mine

*Soar High and Free*

Trisha M.Barrrek Hopkins

Pretty as a robin
To soar high and free
Something so magical a sight no ones ever seen
Trying to imagine where they've been 
On a branch they take a rest
So gently they lean
To see them have babies is the best

A freedom no one can have no one can get
To soar high and free
From the robins' eyes a beautiful sight, I bet
It would be a gift from God to see what they see
To meet the people they met

The ones that come through this trail of living 
The music birds give to us
The memories they are giving 
Soon they move on it's a must

For the cold will be around
And the snow will fall 
A new life they have found
Up in a tree so strong and tall
For the magic they gave up in the tree
A beautiful melody a perfect sound
In our hearts It'll always be

*All or Nothing At All*

April .12. 2005/ March .24. 2014
Trisha M Barrek Hopkins

Sweety I got the chance to embrace you as a friend 
I got the chance to share your love and romance
Baby don't get me wrong I don't want any of it to end 
You'll forever be in and apart of my innocence 
My loving friendship to you I'll always send 

But sweety lately it's either your friendship or it's your love 
You tell me 
Baby I want all or nothing at all 
I can't set one of them free
I need to have both or my heart will fall

Why is it when I find something so true
I have to always let it go 
It's so unfair and makes me so blue
How to deal I just don't know


When we lay so close together
And you kiss me so gently
I want to keep you forever
But I only hold that mentally


It's all or nothing at all
My sweet love you make me happy
I ask of God to not let either heart fall
And maybe in the future my girls can call you daddy


Keep them company
With me watch them grow 
What ever you do don't dump me 
Because it seems with you 
They really want to know 
Help them be able to see
That their love it's okay to show


Baby I'm sorry it's all or nothing at all
What are you looking for 
Together the five of us have a ball
You know where to find me 
When you are looking for more 
So for now I guess I'll set you free

A new Beginning

Just a thought!
The angels sing on heavenly wings and dance in a field of Ambrosia
Pied pipers play a cherub's tune that floats a billowy sky.
Majestic ponies prance the air and ride in candy clouds

The soft winds blow, the sun rays glow, where little fairies lie.


Leave your wares and dance with us be jubilant and free

Unadorned, no mask to hide, your loveliness to see

Let your spirit ride the wind, leave all constraints behind,

A new beginning, rebirth of life, unopened book of time.

A Face and A Mirror

and I'll find my way back and fill every crack
of what I dared to abandon and lack
As I hid under a shadow and erased my name
Because all others thought I was just a game

To take the needles called imperfections out of my heart
and use them as the strength to guide me a better part
Where the papers of my chapter aren't so wrinkled and illegible anymore
and I open my real eyes and to the light, beckoning, a real door

To my surprise, all is shining and ever free
and the clear sparkle of waters bring to reflect the real me
So, then, what brings you, what monster are you, foul mirror?
To sacrifice my time and what I hold ever dearer?

I ask you then, will it be a face, or will it be my words?
Or do my words mean nothing, flocking appeal to idle herds?

Bring to me please, the powerful quality and grace of personality
and let beauty paint my face, beauty associated with the pureness of my mentality

The Gypsy Side Of Me

Soul Poetry


I have a nomad, vagabond spirit,

And a silver strewn gypsy soul.

I'm finally ready to finally flee,

Finally ready, to finally go.


Caged overly, much too long,

Behind tainted and shattered glass,

I've gotten strong and broken out,

Away from that hurtful, painful past.


Now I'll just wander all around,

Without even much of a care,

But never, ever, ever in time,

Will I ever, go back to there.


I'll find my own beautiful path,

Then even blaze a few dozen more,

I'll tie purple silks, all up in my hair,

As on gauzy wings, I now shall soar.


See, its not that I'm such a rebel,

Just seeking all, I wasn't allowed to be.

I'm on a journey of new life and living,

With this yearning, gypsy side, of me.
