Only Seven

Poem By Lana May Hamlin

She was only seven when her life was turned upside-down
She was only seven when she learned to constantly hide her frown
She was only seven when her mother was killed
And her life became unfulfilled
She had to walk through life always being alone
Being so scared, to even go home
The threat of her life always being at stake
Her happiness was something she had to remake
She picked up the rest of her shattered heart up off the floor
Said good-bye and walked out the orphanage door

Smile at me baby, just one more time
Hold me close and remind me your mine
Look into my eyes and please see
All you need in your life is me

Never Stop The Search

I close my eyes and fight back the tears
That well up in my eyes.
Everyday I face my fears
Because I don’t have you by my side.

True Love

I know I’m the last person you want to listen to
But listen up because what I’m going to say is all true
How can you walk away from something so strong
What happened, what went wrong?

~stal3 & L{iss~

Like a river
Like a fog
I’m enveloped in what you say
Questioning your every word

Never-Ending Battle

My hands start shaking,
My heart speeds up it's beating,
My knees go weak,
This is what the thought of you does.

Our Heaven

Sitting in the spot we loved so much
My body craving for your sweet touch
My heart swelling with the thought of you
Memories linger from the dreams we made true
