Hair of Gold

 Verse 1:

Little Emma, with hair of gold, Curls so pretty, stories untold, Quiet and shy, but always kind, Helping others, her heart on her mind.

Chorus: Little Emma, so pure and sweet, With bright blue eyes, that can't be beat, She loves her dolls, and puzzles too, And dancing and twirling, her favorite to do.

Verse 2: She loves the stars, and dinosaurs, Dressing up in princess clothes, she adores, She's quick to learn, and loves to read, A little angel, her parents' need.

Chorus: Little Emma, so pure and sweet, With bright blue eyes, that can't be beat, She loves her dolls, and puzzles too, And dancing and twirling, her favorite to do.

Bridge: She's growing up fast, before our eyes, But we'll always treasure, her sweet little sighs. I love my Emma, Emma loves mommy, Forever and always, our love will be sunny.

Outro: Little Emma, with hair of gold, Curls so pretty, stories untold, A treasure, a gift from above, Our little angel, filled with love.

Tears for Sophie

 Draft 1 


Sophie, my dear Yorkie, so small and so bright, My companion, my friend, my shining light, We were inseparable, from the start, With love so deep, it filled my heart.

I taught you fetch, and potty trained, We went on trips, and snuggled, no strain, We ran together, in the sun, Life was great, and so much fun.

But one day, I left you with someone, A trust misplaced, a mistake that was undone, Left alone, and not watched, Too close to the road, and that was your lot.

When I came home, I saw you there, Still and peaceful, in your forever sleep, My heart was shattered, my tears flowed, A life taken too quickly, too soon, it showed.

But through the pain, a lesson was learned, Of the fragility of life, and the bridges that are burned, I'll always remember you, my dear Sophie, And the love we shared, will forever be with me.



Draft 2

Sophie, my dear Yorkie, so small and so fair My companion, my friend, my love beyond compare We were inseparable, since you were just a pup With love so deep, it filled my heart up.

I taught you fetch, and potty trained you too We went on trips and snuggled, me and you We ran together, in the sun so bright Life was great, and everything felt just right.

But one day, I left you with someone I shouldn't trust A mistake that led to your untimely death, a must Left alone, unguarded and free Too close to the road, and that was where you'd be.

When I came home, I saw you there, so still Peaceful in sleep, my heart with a chill My tears flowed, my heart was shattered A life taken too quickly, too soon, it mattered.

But through the pain, a lesson was learned Of the fragility of life, and bridges that are burned I'll always remember you, my dear Sophie, And the love we shared, will forever be with me.


Song to Dad DRAFT

 Verse 1:

My dad was always there to guide me, Through the good and bad, he'd never hide me, He listened with an ear so true, And always gave advice, that was honest and true.

Chorus: He's always there to lend a hand, To help me up, when I can't stand, But living far apart, Has caused a pain in my heart.

Verse 2: I remember his smile, so wide and bright, It lit up the room, and gave us insight, His laugh was loud, and oh so grand, It always made us gather round and stand.

Chorus: He's always there to lend a hand, To help me up, when I can't stand, But living far apart, Has caused a pain in my heart.

Bridge: But though the distance may be far, I know his love, is like a shining star.

Outro: My dad was always there to guide me, Through the good and bad, he'd never hide me, He's always there to lend a hand, To help me up, when I can't stand.

My Hero

 Growing up, my dad was always my hero. He was the one I looked up to, the one I wanted to be like when I grew up. He had strong, broad shoulders that I knew I could always lean on. He was always there to listen to my troubles, and he was always honest with me. He valued truth and integrity, and while he could be stern at times, he never judged me too harshly. He was always there to help, and he always made it clear that I could confide in him, go to him, or even live with him if I needed to.

But as much as I loved my dad, there was one thing that always seemed to be missing in my life, and that was proximity. He always lived too far away, and I felt like that was a great mistake in my life. Living far from family is something that I believe is one of our society's downfalls. Family splits are the worst, and I missed him dearly every day.

I remember the first time I saw him smile, it was wide and genuine and it was contagious, the way it was able to light up the room. The way he laughed was also special, loud and boisterous, and it was a sound that I could always pick out of a crowd. I remember thinking that I wanted to have that kind of smile and laugh when I grew up.

But despite all of this, I knew that I could always count on him. He was always just a phone call away, and I knew that if I ever needed him, he would be there for me. And so, I hold on to that thought, that whenever I needed him, he would be there for me, just like he always had been.

Missing Dad

 My dad has always been my hero,

A man to look up to, never zero, He's had a strong back and shoulders to lean on, Always listening to my troubles, never gone.

He values truth and integrity, But never judges me too harshly, He's always there to help, We could confide in him, go to him, live with him, yelp.

He has the best smile and the best laugh, I wish I lived closer to him, on a path, He's always lived too far away, I feel like that's been a great mistake in my life, it's a sway.

Living far from family is our system's downfall, Family splits are the worst, it's a brawl, I miss him dearly, every day, But I know he's always just a phone call away.

Poem of Love Feelings

 I don't always say the right things,

It's true, my heart it stings, I talk badly, it's not right, And I see now, it's not light.

You do mean things, it's true, But I know it's not just you, When things are good, they're great, It's a love that can't be beat.

I'm lost in you, it's true, Confused, with nothing to do, I lose parts of me, it's true, But with you, I feel brand new.

We're homebodies, the both of us, Together, we sink, into the fuss, Lose ourselves, hide under a rock, Ignore the world, and it's clock.

But in this oblivion, we nitpick, Forget to appreciate, it makes us sick, The world speeds up, time flies, A slower time, where love thrives.

We focused on snuggles, forgot our woes, But now, we must learn to let it go, Remember the love, that once was pure, And strive to make it forevermore.

Poem draft for feelings

 I know that I don't always say the right things, and I feel badly about that. I know that I talk badly about you sometimes, and I don't mean to. I know that you do and say mean things too, and I understand that. But when things are good between us, they're great. I am lost in you, and sometimes you confuse me. I feel like I lose parts of myself when I'm with you, but I also feel like I've found a home.

We are both homebodies, and when we're together, we sink into the oblivion of being home. We lose ourselves, hiding under a rock, trying to ignore the chaos of the big, scary world. But when we do that, we start to nitpick little things and forget to appreciate what we've always loved about each other.

The pressures of the world are speeding up time, and I remember a time when things were slower, when we focused on snuggles and forgot our troubles. I want to go back to that time, when we were just two people in love, wrapped up in each other's arms, forgetting about the world outside.
