Where to begin where to end 

When to say when how to win

My love is all I want to send

To be with you 

To hold your hand 

To really know you is to know

To take a stand

To be a friend 

To say hello good-bye good day goodnight 

To tell the one you love 

What a sight 

To forgive after a fight 

Finding bad news 

Holding eachother while taking a snooze

Taking care of each others heart 

Saying you love 

Trying not to fall apart

Promising people won't shove

A perfect fit as tight as a glove

Missing each other 

Kissing one another 

Always tell the truth

No matter how scared you may be

If your love is true

You'll understand you'll see

I can't wait till that day you look up at me 

While your on one knee

When I met you 

My skies they turned blue

Baby you're the one for me 

Don't ask how I just know

So please don't set me free

*Today You Begin To Breathe*

 

 May.24.2014

 Trisha Barrek Hopkins

 

Today you begin to breathe

It's the day you begin to die

You know you're getting older

You begin to cry

The tear that just dropped

And landed on your shoulder

Has already began to dry

 

It's getting harder to move

Your bones you begin to hear "pop"

Minutes of your life you're starting to lose

Praying your heart doesn't stop

Depression begins

The number of days lived drop

Stress is out beating you.... it wins

 

The day you begin to live

Another heartbeat has gone by

Yesterday is just a memory you can't give

You ask yourself why

Each breath you take

Another day you try

Praying the next day you wake

Angels above you fly

 

They wait until the time is right

You feel their presence is strong

To live you will put up a fight

Your time is not up they are wrong

Not Done

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This poem isn't finished ..I got writers block.. I'll come back to it 

The Start of a New Day

When does morning start?

When a creature awakes,

Or when the sun rises?

Yea, the morning is

When a creature awakes

To find it starting anew

In the world dominated

By mortal souls.

 

The human wakes up

First by opening its eyes,

Then stretching its muscles

And sitting up in a position

To retreat from the bed

That held it prisoner 

During the long, dark night.

 

Out of bed it goes

Attending its normal

Robotic morning routine

Whilst thinking of the future,

Of what the day holds,

And how the day will go.

Either gleefully or woefully

Does the human think of this

For not all mornings 

Are filled with happiness and glee.

 

Fearful not is the human

Who takes things as they go

Wave by wave.

Wave by wave harassing it,

Wave by wave attacking it,

Wave by wave saddening it,

Wave by wave entertaining it,

Wave by wave knocking it down.

Each wave the human does take

Accepting each as a challenge,

As an opponent, an obstacle,

And one that must be rid of.

Defeat is not in its dictionary,

For there is no defeat

If one can rise again,

And face the same challenge

To only be victorious.

 

The human does not give up,

It does not ponder on the past,

But it rises from its ashes - 

Waking up to start anew

In a world dominated

By mortal souls.

Begin Again (v.1.0)

Lovespeak

Took a deep breath in the mirror
You didn't like it when I wore these shoes
But I do

Turn the lock and put my headphones on
You always said you didn't get this song
But I do
I do

Walked in expecting you'd be late
But you got here early and you'd stand and wave
I walked to you

Pulled the chair and helped me in
And you don't know how nice that is
But I do

And you throw your head back laughing
like a little kid
I think it's strange that you think I'm funny
'cause she never did
And I've been spending the last eight months
thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end
But on a Friday, in a bakery
I watched it begin again

I said I never met someone who could
understand these LG records as me
But you do

We tell stories and you don't know why
I'm coming off a little shy
But I do

But you show your killer smile
with the perfect teeth
I think it's new that you say I'm sorry
'cause she never did
And I've been spending this year's eight months
But in August, when our eyes met
I let it begin again

And we walked down the block to the cab
I almost brought her up
But you stopped to talk
About the colors that you dyed your hair once
Every single nighttime
I wanna talk about her
But for the first time
What's past is past

'Cause you held me in your arms
like a little kid
I think it's strange that you say I'm priceless
'cause she never did
And I've been spending the first eight months
Thinking all love ever does is fail and mourn and slay
But in October when we held close
I had it begin again

But on a Friday, in a bakery
I watched begin again

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is not a poem but my version of Taylor Swift's song Begin Again from her album Red

Do

Take my hand, it won't be far -
let's walk together into dark.
Reality can't cage our hearts,
I promise you it's just a start.

Are you afraid of word 'forever'?
Forget the meaning life has given.
The place I'll take you to is better -
be brave and break out of this prison.

Create a world anew from scratch,
mold its shape from void and silence.
The bluebird won't be hard to catch,
it's our home - the new asylum.
