Students ready, teachers here
Suddenly we both appear
Patience please, for both our sake
I am trying to caretake
She asks me to walk by faith
I her to communicate
Lending hand and listening ear
I can hear her loud and clear 
She sees me through facing fear
I'd abandoned my career
Thrive inside a twist of fate
Speak despite delay in rate
Love is all you need and take
Now we get to graduate

Traveling Light

I wonder what his heart looks like
A cypress tree and starry night
Like grenadine with Diet Sprite
The streamers on a child's bike
Cathedral bells and falling rice
Or ocean swells 'neath diamond kites
Like tinsel strands and traveling light?
He'll show me once he knows I'm right

The Mouse

With candy cane handcuffs, there needn't be keys 
Mistreat me this Christmas, I chew through and leave
My quips are my missiles and kisses deadly
Such insulin shock, you could drop and decease
Curled up with the kittens in mistletoe leaves
One eye on my business and cheese as I sleep
I've predators present at every degree
And ready or not, it's your thoughts I can read
So know this - I'm focused, and I will succeed 
The mouse in my house always stirring is me
