  • The Dream Catcher
  • Written for my little sister's high school graduation.
  • You can grasp the moon
    Or seize the stars,
    But if you catch a dream,
    Then follow it far.

    You might lose your way
    Or stumble and fold,
    But you might catch a song
    Or even strike gold.

    For wide is the stage
    On which you dance
    So catch your dreams;
    Snatch every chance.

  • The Rose In The Storm
  • The final flame within me died
    And left me stumbling in the dark
    Until that stormy winter night
    I came upon God's tender mark.

    Where His holy kiss met filthy earth,
    A rose bloomed with petals of flame
    Scented with frankincense and myrrh 
    Emmanuel; upon us God's light came.

  • Safe Nest
  • Whistle a tune for who I once was;
    A bird who lived in a house in a house. 
    Lovely and loved, longing to be free
    To wander a world made just for me.

    Hum in harmony to the person I am;
    For the wind in our wings, the world in our hands.
    Sing me a tune through the paths that we take,
    The crossroads and dead-ends and choices we make.

    And charm me to be the love you'll love best;
    My adventure, my joy, safe in our nest.
