My Beautiful You

A Touch of Heaven is
what I see-
when I see you in my dreams,
standing in front of thee.

I unlock my eyes,
Gazing into paradise seeing-
The only person who fills
my appetite with butterflies.

A Touch of Heaven is,
what you are.
More Romantic than,
a shooting star.

There is an immediate connection
of jade and blue.
Knowing, assuring me,
That I’m standing next to-
My Beautiful You.

“Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

follow these as your day goes on..
just a little something i do..
Make a difference in someones life
Make someone smile
Treat everyday like its your last
and as James Dean once said...

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today"

"Animal House"

You Sleep?
No, You Nap.
You’re Tired?
Tough Luck.
The Beginning is far gone
and now its Roaring every night.
Unable to sleep
You curl on the couch
The Little Room that is..

Rest your Mind
Everything will find a place in time.
The times are rough
and the tension is tough

but take a deep breath
Because the time will come.. you see
A place of solitude for you...
...and for me.

Dark thoughts enter your head,
shoo them away
and lye in your bed.
Think of the day
of waves on the sand
as the Giant that stands black and white.
With shells in your hand.
everything will turn out alright.

That blinking tower
will light the way.
It has a form of power
that calls us back in a way..
feeling like we should go every day.

our shells
will find bells,
and our happiness will grow
for if we fall now
we will never give ourselves a chance to grow.

Keep your chin up
we will surpass this obstacle.

Maybe today
or another day..
but our time will come
and we will have our fun...
September 1st has come to fast
Looking back on the summer and all the memories
So many good times spent at home
Jones beach, beach House, Hamptons, summer ball
There was no down time
August 31st a million things running through my head
Less than 24 hours til’ I’m off to College.
Wanting to go back
Not wanting leaving everything behind
Mom dad Leanne Todd and Buster
The five treasures that mean the most to me
One final dinner
Everyone wanted to talk about everything
Except me leaving
Putting money on it
My brother blurted out
“So When are you leaving?”

One last ice-cream desert.
Off to bed
I lay there
Eyes open
Staring at the ceiling
Not getting a minute of sleep
Too much on my mind
Wishing it was July 1st again
Morning creeps up
And it is time to pack the car and take off
Everyone started to hug and kiss me
I got all the good byes and miss yahs
It was my mom’s turn
She said good bye and I love you
I said its not good bye its I’ll see you soon
I didn’t get it.. good bye means your leaving for good
I wasn’t leaving for good
I was just leaving temporarily
I looked back one more time..
And said..
…Ill See Yah Soon

This is to the best, amazing-est person in the world.. my mother..

Nancy’s Classroom

You clean our dishes
You wash the floor
You do everything we need
And more.

You clean our clothes
You bathe the pup
You look up at the clock
And your day is up.

You pick us up
When we need a ride
And it’s safe to say
You’re always by our side.

You comfort us when were sick
You help us when were stuck
You’re like a heads up penny,
Who never runs out of luck.

You think about us
And never yourself
You prove to us
You’re unlike anyone else.

Not a word of complaint
Comes from your mouth
It’s like you store it away
And keep it to yourself.

Being the teacher you are
You taught me to live
The most important lesson
There is to give.

You have all the answers
And you watch us grow
You give us hope
Proving there’s always more to know.

You keep no secrets
You tell no lies
You are my guardian angel
In disguise.

The worst may happen
But you’re always there
Comforting and loving
Showing you care.

The struggles in life
Are dust to you
Never in defeat
Always paying your dues.

The kiss-kiss
You give me
Is a special thing we do,
Just between me and you.

Sleep is not an option
It’s true you don’t
It’s on the little room sofa
Where you rest about.

Your title is mother
You go by mom
You feel so right
When you’re in my arm.

We tease, we laugh,
A lot its true-
We joke, we cry,
It’s just what we do.

So much go unmentioned
You live your life for us
Were your family forever
You’re stuck with us

We’re blessed to have
A mom like you
You’re our leader, having a say
In everything we do.

You’re one of a kind
It’s true you see,
That’s just the way you are
And that’s all there is to be.
Have you ever met that one person who thinks they know anything about everything and he or she gets soo annoying to a point where you don’t even know what they’re talking about, and you don’t care.
Well to get them really angry all you have to say is that you know everything there is to know about life.
They’ll probably ask how and doubt you
And all you have to say is:
I learned everything I need to know about life in kindergarten.
Share everything.
Play fair.
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life – learn, think, draw, paint, sing , dance, play and work
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
Know--- Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup--they all die. -----and So do we.
And always remember the please and thank you’s
------ -------- -------- -------- -------- ------- -------- -------
This is everything you need to know about living life.
Now if Mr. Smarty pants doesn’t agree, ask him to give you an example of any situation in life… you’ll prove him wrong and shut him up
Think what a better world it would be if we all had cookies and milk at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and then lay down with our blanky’s for a nap.
Or if our government had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.
And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out in the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.

That will shut Mr. Know-it-all.. up.. for a while.

sonnet 1.1

Shall I go and introduce thy self to thee?
If so, I chance undue disgrace and shame.
Your presence chills my heart like shade under a tree.
If I refrain I will never know thy name.

Thy eyes are as green as a spring's early trees
And thy looks sit on a bed of roses
Thou are sweeter than a honey hive of bees.
Go forth to thee as you’re under our noses?

Thou makes thy heart pound hard like a fierce bull
Your looks paralyze thy strength, bring thee to a halt
Thee makes thy body thy heart thy mind crammed full
Thou would melt in thy arms like chocolate malt.

While I approach I slip as a joker to thee
She laughs stands up comes forth and says Ashley.

Game Day

Fatigue sets in
When you think you can’t go anymore
And you feel like your not going to win
That’s when you have to score

Don’t give up
Give it all you got
Get fired up
And take a shot

It’s much more than a game
Get your head in the zone
Strive to play the same
And get ready to own

Confidence is key
Focus on your goal
For God sakes don’t think of me
Just play your role

Clear everything out of your head
Play your game and you’ll do fine
Knock em’ dead
It’s your time to shine

Don’t hesitate to take the lead
Do your job and nothing more
Convince yourself you’re the top seed
For Pete Sakes go to goal and score!

four years older

Oh wow where do I start with this,
Well, She is my sis,
A person who I always miss,
Talkative.. yes
Ask me if I enjoy this?
That answer is one hundred percent
