Two Halves Make a Whole by Elizabeth Diane Daniel


Take these words

Chisel them in stone

Rip em’ to shreds if you’d like

Without him in life

Life is nothing

Take all my achievements

Strip me down to the bone

Throw those accolades to the wolves

Bright lights blind

Applause can be stifling

If my biggest fan isn’t standing in the crowd

God this career I’ve been building

Dreaming of since I was a kid

I can see it growing


But while my stanzas are flowing

Personally, it would be overwhelming

If those blue eyes didn’t keep me grounded

Take every ounce of praise

It’s not mine anyways

He taught me years ago to put you first

Oh, how I love that boy you created

From his intelligent curiosity

Down to the way he acts bossy

Such a kind soul

Has a grasp on what he feels

A faith unteachable

Even in the face of the unknown

Take those worries

I’ll carry them

Of all the business decisions I will ever make

They’re useless without him

See everyone has that person

Without them life is nothing.

About the Author

From a very young age, Elizabeth knew she was meant to be a writer. Around 8 or so, she started with little poems inside birthday cards. As years went by, poetry became her safe haven in a world full of chaos and beauty. Through written words, she found her voice. A voice according to doctors, she was never supposed to have. Today at 34, she still re- reads those poems from the early days. Now housed on her bookshelf in old binders.
