Sifting Through the Bits and Pieces

Sifting Through the Bits and Pieces

IMG_7671 2

I have a lot of stuff. I’ve also moved about 20 times over the last almost 20 years. Each time I moved I donated, gave away, sold, and dumped the bits and pieces of my life to organizations, friends, strangers, and, well, dumps. My biggest moves were across the country, 5 times. Twice I flew: on my way to college and then after I graduated. And 3 times I drove: there, back, and there again.

Remove me from life
See how I do
Wither from loneliness
Or bloom from that too

Lay on the ground
Look up at my ceiling
Of clouds and birds and butterflies
All in feeling
All in feeling

This world is alive
With sunshine and breath
And I’m living inside of it
While I rest
Listening to the singing of life
Trying to forget the things
That I think are right

And there I was wrong
Just one moment ago
With the flitting idea
That somehow I need more

I can breathe, sweet air lifts me
I can walk, my legs can carry me
I can sing, my voice fulfills me
And I love
My heart reminds me
And I want
My heart implores me
And I need
My heart gives me the gift of knowing

This world is alive
With sunshine and breath
And I’m living inside of it
While I rest
Listening to the singing of life
Trying to forget the things
That I think are right


If I had one more year
I’d let you know just how much I care
Everyday I’d walk and smile
With everyone I’d share

If I knew my time was short
‘Cause any moment can shift this Earth
Well, I would skip along to a tune
I would follow in a child’s shoes
If I knew
If I knew
But I do, because

This world is alive
With sunshine and breath
And I’m living inside of it
While I rest
Listening to the singing of life
Trying to forget the things
That I think are right
