Moving past Stepping forward Sto andando oltre Until I can't remember the color blue Until I can close my eyes, and not see you ICAO
Da me a voi…
Nei tuoi occhi azzurri
Ho trovato tutto quello che avevo perso in me
Mi sveglierò con te, ogni giorno della mia vita
I want to be all of me with you
I want to be seen
Through your eyes
To see you
Bathe in the truth of you
Stand with you
Drown in the smell of you
Lose myself in your neck
In your arms
Because you… are you
I want to build boundaries
Know I never have to let you go
Fucking really believe
That I will exist in you
The way you exist in me
You are not mine
Yet… You are
I will love you
For all my life
She Loved Him…
Ink spills on the page
Pen and paper, words flow free
Shallow is his heart
Turn West, feel the wind
Your hand on your heart, I’m there
And, you are in mine
Credi Negli Angeli?
Verses of poetry.
Coldplay, lyrics from “Fix You”
She’s but one woman
A tempest within, rains fall
Love feeds a new Spring
When your heart feels as big as the sky, you sing. No?
” I could light the night up with my soul on fire, I could make the sun shine from pure desire…”
From My Heart…
Cyndi Lauper sings words straight from my heart in her song “True Colors.” I have always seen things differently than most, and I wish you could see the world through my eyes…
“If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there
And I see your true colors
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you…”
This is what I say to you…
Do you know what it means to love someone? It means you bring that person into “being.”
Love is what I want for me.
Love is what I give to you.
Lasso the Moon…
Tonight I am a million miles away, thinking of dreams that may never be…
I am exactly who I am today because my entire life has been immersed in and informed by diversity. I am unapologetically American in this regard. The sharing and understanding of our life experiences is what always enables us to rise from the ashes of that which has been burned by those who stain our society. I am confident that as a nation we will confront the inequities we inherited from yesterday, the challenges we face today, and the ones to come in the future.
And still my hope rises with the stars…
He sleeps within me
Hidden deep in my body
He’s in my lungs
He is my momentum
I walk each step of life silently
With my veins fiercely pumping my truth
His name on my tongue
His eyes drive me
Leading me to unknown skies
Una Lettera agli Aiutanti…
For all those that care for your country and your people, I know that you do so with your hands and your heart. You believe in the stories of your communities, the history of your land.
There is a picture you paint with your loving hands. I can hear your voice under the noise of the streets. I can feel something special, past all the fear of this pandemic. The picture helps me to believe in the future for us all.
With all that is happening, I know you are working to take care of all of us. Love knows no border.
The world is praying for your strength and courage. Do you hear us?
Se Io Fosse Te…
I would have listened with my heart
…And, spoke with my soul
Torino e Milano…
Grazie…. what a blessed life I have to spend my 50th in Italy. I crossed an ocean (again) for me.
When a song is not “just a song…”
La Dolce Vita…
Sometimes I’m sad
Yes, sometimes I’m angry
What can I do?
The only choice I have is to hold onto a memory
To remember the first time you looked at me
And you smiled
You smiled… at me
It was in that moment
That my heart filled
It truly filled… it filled
It’s that memory that keeps air in my lungs
And, sometimes tears in my eyes
It is all that I have of you
I Crossed An Ocean... with love in my heart
Unedited, Unfiltered, No Retouch Necessary…
I’m on the cusp of turning 50, with a birthday in just over a week. I came home today excited to be going to Italy to spend my day with the people I love most in the world. Here’s to 50 years of being me.
