shy girl

I wish I could talk to you
Even if just a whisper
But when you’re around
I’m shy and tongue-tied
My insides melt
Around my pounding heart
And my voice is paralyzed
But then I see your sweet smile
And I show you mine
Everything in me is stirred
And I
 know I never need
To speak a single word

song of the day. #5

song of the day.

My favorite music lately tends to be on the mellow side… but not always. Today, I needed something else… and I kind of love the story behind this song…

White told UK newspaper The Sun that he played the song to his daughter the day after she’d asked her dad for ‘16 saltine crackers.’ “I said, ‘I wrote a song for you,’” he recalled, “and I played it back for her. She blushed and turned away. The next time I played the song for her, she said, ‘Yeah I never said that!’” [source:]

This is another song my kids used to sing… at least this part:

I’m hungry and the hunger will linger
I eat sixteen saltine crackers then I lick my fingers

song of the day

Obviously I am not the owner of any rights to this song, this video, or these lyrics… just everything else… which isn’t much… © 2016 what sandra thinks

switch. (haiku)


Alone in the dark
Psyche working overtime
Where is the off switch?

a friend.


I want someone
who will understand me
even when I know
(and she knows)
I am being completely
(and even a little crazy)

I want someone
who will keep my secrets
and tell me hers
even the ones
never before shared
(and the ones
that humiliate us)

I want someone
who will not abandon me
for a newer model
because she would never
think I am replaceable
(even when I wish
I could replace myself)

I want someone
who magically knows
when I need her
and she is there for me
with a hug
(and maybe
some really good coffee)

I want someone
who will show me
what’s amazing about me
even when I am blind
to all but darkness
(and remind me
darkness is good too)

I want someone
who will make me laugh
even when I think
I never will again
(and of course
laugh so much
that we both cry)

I want someone
who will be with me
even when I don’t
want to be with myself
because she loves me
(even when
I am wholly unloveable)

I want someone
who will share the laughter
and the tears
and the hugs
and the connection
and the love
(I want a friend)

tiny red heart.
