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.
