Warrior

I am a warrior
I have strengh, honor, passion
I train to live
I train to die

A warrior is one
One with his own mind, body, soul
One with the earth
One with energy

A warrior fights
Fights not for glory, maliciousness, nor greed
Fighting with and for love
Fighting with inner strengh

Spirit is a warrior's essence
Spirit within thrives, lives, conqueres
Spirit is what keeps warriors alive
Spirit is what drives them on

I - am a warrior
Who - are you?

I Remember

I remember that kiss
A kiss of real love, though I did not realize the truth then
Every person has a kiss they remember forever
Whether it is with your true love, or with a love of the past
A kiss that makes the world around you disappear

I remember someone told me that they had seen our kiss
They said it looked like a moment from a movie
I smile when I think of that
I had a moment that some live their entire lives without

The scenery of my movie was a ballroom
I was wearing the dress of a princess
You were my prince, and I loved you, but I was too scared to tell you

I remember being nervous
Though I had kissed you so many times before
I was wondering if other people would watch
I felt uncomfortable with that thought

Then you leaned in. Then you kissed me
Somehow it was different
No one could watch us
Because we were alone

That is my memory of you
The one I choose to think of when I am reminded of the past
I may act resentful of the way things are
But I can only remember that kiss and all it represents

I know our paths will never be as one
And I know that is how it should be
But ones first love will never completely die
Once anything in this world comes into existence

~ You can not erase the fact that it has been
~ And in that moment of time will always be

Rain

Rains fogging up my windows
I hear it drumming on my roof
Though it blocks out all my sunshine
At least the outsides not in view

Sometimes when its raining
I sit by the fire and I think
The fires warming up my cold hands
But Im not ready to jump in.

Who says the rains not good for anything?
Who says that the sun should always show?
If there were no rain drops falling in our lives
Then flowers could never drink their wine

People often hide from themselves
Afraid to look the person inside in the eyes
But if you look down in a puddle
Youre reflections always there

Ever notice when it drizzles
We run inside without a thought
Never waiting till the full storm comes
Ready to rush out again when it stops

Who says the rains not good for anything?
Who says that the sun should always show?
If there were no rain drops falling in our lives
Then flowers could never drink their wine

All dark clouds must stop somewhere
You must chase them till the end
In the end youll see the sunshine
But dont forget to look back again

In the rain is where you can find yourself
Just stand there and look up
And just let the water wash your face
So your smile can show all that is within

Who says the rains not good for anything?
Who says that the sun should always show?
If there were no rain drops falling in our lives
Then flowers could never drink their wine
