Skipping Stones With Ghosts 

There are times when I just want to be alone

Left to my own mind to find my way home

Then as I throw another stone off the coast

I realize I’m skipping stones with ghosts

Memories of a past I can’t let go

Crashing like the waves with each throw

The girl’s heart I broke

With each harsh word I spoke

The tears my mom would cry

With each and every lie

The one I let get away

Because the words I couldn’t say

Antique shopping every Saturday afternoon

I’d say no, a million other things I’d rather do

The show you wanted to see I said we couldn’t afford

The truth is I thought I would be bored

More thoughts, more regrets, kept pouring in

Like they were riding the ocean wind

The far away sound of a single sea gull

Another memory I wish I couldn’t recall

During the holidays how you loved to decorate

Singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Jingle All The Way

All the presents you loved to give

All these memories I can’t relive

It’s time to clear my head

Wake my heart from being dead

Time to put these memories on a stone

Let each go with each stone thrown

Every regret, every emotion

Drown them in the ocean

I’m no longer the person I was

Forgiven, me and all my flaws

    My past is gone away, tomorrow is a new day!

    This resonates well within my spirit. Trying to forgive myself is the hardest part. Throwing those stones far into the deep of the ocean where they can never be retrieved paints a beautiful picture of God’s grace. His grace is sufficient…time to leave my suitcase at His feet.

    Thank you for this post.

    This is a good one.

    I wish you would take all the stones and truly throw them into the ocean. God will pick them up and take care of them all.

    I want you back. I want to be truly forgiven, I want us to get back where we were. I want us to be honest and true and just have plan fun again. I know pouring to much out here but oh well.

    Throw those stones
