A Song at Sunrise

A Song at Sunrise



He sang the song at sunrise, to the morning dawn It rose into the atmosphere and carried on and on It fell in gentle rain upon the barren lands It moistened upturned faces and was caught in outstretched hands It blew within warm winds across the marshy fen Was whispered through the waving reeds and reached the hearts of men This song is never ending all around the earth The song that started long ago with our sweet Saviour's birth

Bird Song

Blast it bird! Where are ye off to?
Don’t ye know the day is through?

Oh but I’ve a lovely song to sing,
I must ere I do another thing.
To the man in the garden who works with the hoe,
He’s tired and lonely and his heart needs to grow.
Then off to the widow who thinks of her lost mate,
And  meditates on the gorgeous sunset of late.
It is my heartfelt, joyful duty for which I long,
To comfort God’s people with my little song.

Oh, well off you go then,
Your song wins again..

Walks-With-Sorrow

The sun sinks low within the sky as does his heart
For from his own true love he knows that he must part

Walks-With-Sorrow plays a song of lasting grace
To shield him from the tears cascading down his face

The silence of these woods brings him a sense of calm
And with his song he finds himself a healing balm

Way off in the distance there's a bride-to-be
With watchful eye just waiting for her man to see

The beauty and the ecstasy their union brings
Unaware of his decision she still sings

Songs of wonderment and glory she will carry
For today she gives herself to him to marry

But Walks-With-Sorrow knows that they can never wed
They will not be together in their marriage bed

Warring families forced them to keep their love hid
Passion for each other tribe elders forbid

So now he calls upon the skies to the Great Spirit
In the distance his bride cries but he can't hear it

Walks-With-Sorrow is a man so filled with pain
He'll never leave these woods or ever love again

TREASURE TROVE

I have a little treasure trove where I keep special things.
Today I thought I'd take it out, search through my memories.
Inside were pictures, souvenirs and things almost forgot,
And then among some special notes, a paper I knew not.

It seemed at first a poem that was started long ago.
Written just for me, in secret by my beau.
He must have written hurriedly, and stuck it in my hand,
To tell me I was special, he thought that I was grand.

I've kept that note, his song of love, for lo these many years;
And as I read it through again, it still brings me to tears;
For this song was like his love, he said it had no end,
Till I became his wife and so a new song could begin.

                                                                       Judy Ball

Song of Hope

You sing it loud and I sing along
We sing a song of hope, our hopeful song
You and your words get me through the day
The lyrics and beat know just what to say
Saying we all have our worries and need not
That at least there's two things that we got
We got our lives and we got this to sing
We got voices and music to bring!
Bring on the wonderful feeling
Bring on the gift of melody
Lets sing of the truth with our tongues
Lets sing this song at the top our lungs!
And as long as I can sing, you know I will
Nothing says anything more better or real
And no matter what terrible endeavor
Your song of hope holds hope forever

Lets Dance

Lets Dance


A slow song is playing and we get up to dance
We gel as one, like in a trance

Our bodies so close, our hearts skip a beat
The feeling of warmth, forever to keep

Two bodies sway smooth, slow, as one
He whispers in my ear, I love you hun

Our eyes meet as I give him a kiss
Slow dancing our moves in pure bliss

He holds me close as the song comes to an end
I whisper into his ear, till the next song my friend

The song

Hear the song she plays night after night
Willing it calling you to make peace or fight

You hear the song calling on all
whether it weak or strong, you hear the call

calling the willing and unwilling
The song she is sure to sing

Listen true
It will catch you

How its interpreted is how you hear
The song she sings with a tear

Unravel Me

Tears stream like water, rain in the night
A heart that still hungers for all to be right
Stoned by a circle, mocked while on stage
Emotions grow heavy from pain into rage
Scabs that were healing I picked them apart
All to uncover, I had to restart.

The essence of the soul, Purity
Only in your arms, Security
For the ship is overtaken by rough waves
I know that You’re the one who saves
Hear me while I sit
In the dark.

Carelessness, comes from movie clips inside my mind
Walls built to last start to unwind
And I can’t take the ache within the knots
It’s as if all I’ve learned I just forgot
For the flames of bitter yesterdays just ignite
Restless with this walk, I lose my sight

The essence of the soul, purity
Only in your arms, security
For the ship is overtaken by rough waves
I know that You're the One who saves
Hear me while I sit 
In the dark.

But I’m not alone
No I’m not alone
Going to the otherside
I must resist this fear 
And
Come alive!

How Many Times

How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down,
Over and over, you’ll be found,
How many times will I just pray,
For all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

How many days go quickly bye,
How many birds sing when they cry,
How many cherubs fight for you,
How many angels dance the blues,

How many demons tried to take,
How many stripes for our mistakes,
How many times could I confess,
I never loved you any less
I never loved you any less.


How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down
Over and over, you’ll be found’
how many times will I just pray,
for all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

I Sing A Sad Song

I sing a sad song for the cold, lonely
Moments no one will admit to aloud.

I sing a sad song for all of the broken promises
Made with thoughtless illusions.

I sing a sad song for the faces pressing
Against the window panes in longing.

I sing a sad song for wild anticipation
Of days with happy endings that never come.

I sing a sad song for the telephone
that never rings enough.

I sing a sad song for all of those who
Waste time singing sad songs...

Like you and
Me!

Sherry, The One That Got Away

Sherry, The One That Got Away By Rick Rucker Sherry was the one that got away, I remember her to this very day, She was quite a winsome lass, I was far below her class, Her brother was a friend of mine, I first met his sister, with a smile of Sunshine! I went to his house to swim in his pool, There, I made myself the perfect fool! I was drying off, and standing there, When out walked Venus, with raven hair! I was not merely tongue tied, Had I not averted my eyes, I might have died! Just then, my heart suddenly stopped, But for paralysis, I would have dropped! Understand that I was shy, Too afraid to talk to her, I won’t lie! Just to make matters worse, A song came out, to add to my curse, Frankie Valli sang a song, To, my embarrassment, prolong, The title was graced with her name, It made feel even more lame, A line of the song asked her on a date, To never have the courage to do that was my fate! I had a rich fantasy life, In it, she starred as my wife, We were so much in love, Birds serenaded us from above! I imagined we had little need of clothes, Writhing together, we would curl our toes, Finally the balance of the Universe I had to restore, I could not take it anymore! I began to think like Machiavelli, All because of Frankie Valli! With her brother, I did pick a fight, So that I could sleep at night, So that I would see her never more, In time, my heart became less sore. In time, I learned to be more assertive, Not merely giving girls glances, furtive, I even fell in love and married, But, sometimes at night, my thoughts tarried, On the memory of that lovely girl, Who, among the swine, she was a pearl. Whenever I read about two people, married forever, I kick myself for lack of guts I never, Asked Sherry on a date, Therefore could not become her mate, I do not know what might have been, Had I not been the most timid of young men. I hope she has had a wonderful life, I did, and a terrific wife, But still I sometimes hear that song, And instantly, I know that I did wrong!

Fill the Empty Sky

I’ve been sleeping on the clouds down in dumps Blanket of roses that is watered of my tears Swaying on a wind that plays the song of my heart And the song of the stars, the symphony, is tearing me apart. They say there is a time to heal a broken heart To wipe the tears and ease the pain that hurting me inside I just walk on the rainbow and yet the color has faded I will fill the empty sky of the memories that you left behind And when the morning comes I face the rising sun To fill the empty sky of love and smile lots of fun I fill the empty sky as the way I heal my wounded heart In my life you are just a part of the pieces of my heart.

I Sing A Sad Song

I Sing A Sad Song
I sing a sad song for the cold, lonely
Moments no one will admit to aloud.

I sing a sad song for all of the broken promises
Wrought by circumstances beyond anyone's control.

I sing a sad song for the faces pressing
Against the window panes in longing.

I sing a sad song for wild anticipation
Of days that never come.

I sing a sad song for the telephone
That never rings enough.

I sing a sad song for dreams woven of
Hopeless illusions.

I sing a sad song for all of those who
Waste time, singing sad songs!

Soul of an Eagle, Life of a Dancer

The way he moves, like he’s floating on wings,
Dancing in beat to the song that he sings;

Dipping down, then up again fast,
A dance like his goes on, unsurpassed;

He spins to the left and then to the right,
Listen closely to the beautiful song he recites;

“Ya hey-ya hey-ya”  he chants to the beat of the drums,
One by one the crowd is awed and one by one succumbs;

To the spell that his slow movements have cast,
Till they have no perception of time that has passed;

His deliberate actions tell of his tale,
Of how one day he will prevail;

And soar with the beings up in the sky,
And then to the heavens he will fly!

Twinkle, twinkle little star-
How I wonder if you are.
So many light-years far away,
Are you still out there today?
Did you go nova little star?
How I wonder if you still are.

SILLINESS


     Well...I wanted to do something silly as I did,
     In writing a poem for this bid.

     It took but a TINY HERCULEAN try,
     All the while, I'm asking "Why?"

     I thought of writing about the time,
     When I didn't even have a dime.

     But then I realized how silly it would be,
     To write something, only about me.

     SO, SITTING and SMELLING the SWEET SEPAL,
     I decided not to write about me at all.

     Instead, while eating my JUMBO SHRIMP,
     I decided it would best to be an OVERGROWN IMP.

     Writing about the CARNATION CARRIED by the COURTIER,
     Who SANG his SONG SUCCESSFULLY to his SIRE.

     Oh, the WORDS that he WOULD WARBLE WISTFULLY,
     While the GREAT and GORGEOUS GREETED him GLEEFULLY.

     His CANTANKEROUS KING COMMONLY CAROUSED,
     Yet, only SONG SOOTHED him when his SHACKLED SEVERITY SEPIA aroused.

     Thus, often abed the king would go,
     His DARKNESS LIGHTENED by the SONG SANG SO.

     And if this silliness be not a poem the rules will fit,
     Maybe I should just lay down my pencil...and QUIT !!

War-Born Lullaby

I hear a mother softly cry
As she sings a war-born lullaby.

The song of a father who went away,
To give freedom one more day.

He promised that he would return,
Return from watching evil burn.

It was a promise he could not keep,
As now he sleeps an eternal sleep.

He gave his life so his child could see,
A land of freedom and liberty.

His body now rests beneath green grass,
His medals and picture behind clear glass.

His soul, however, is not gone.
His ideas and dreams are carried on.

She sings the song of war’s high cost.
She sings the song of freedom not lost.

She sings of a father’s sacrifice,
For his country and family he gave his life.

Singing Angel

My days were grim and my nights were long
Until the day I first heard my angel's song

Trying  to get closer I went out on the sill
The singing got sweeter, from heaven it did spill

The songs were playing straight to my heart
Bringing new meaning to a life torn apart

I summoned her down to come sit next to me
I listened a bit, then sang,  joining her harmony

We sang and we danced all through the night
A perfect lyrical romance, oh it seemed so right

We wrote and we sang as loud as we could
Singing to others, making this world good

With her at my side all my troubles were free
Since the day an angel was sent down to me

Sing Me a Song

Sing me a song to dry my tears,
One that chases away my fears.

Sing me a song when I am down,
That tells of the love that we have found.

Sing me a song both day and night,
That tells me everything’s alright.

Sing me a song, soft and low,
One that makes my heart to glow.

Sing me a song, loud and strong,
One that lasts two lifetimes long.

Sing me a song from far away,
One that says by me you’ll stay.

Sing me a song both near and dear,
That reassures me your still here.

Sing me a song to lift me high,
That helps my fingers touch the sky.

Sing me a song that’s tried and true,
One that says, I love you.

Please sing me all these songs and more,
Because life is knocking at the door.

Warm up Song

Start on B and two other open strings I say
Strum down and hammer to the note less than A

Strum up the strings it was a minor
Strum down on C this notes much finer

2 quick strums , down,up and move to G
Single pick ,palm mute ,low string E

Be sure to finger,firm on the 3rd fret
They call it G, this notes a good bet

Full clean strums on this chord
Almost done, I hope your not bored

Down,up,Down
Down,Up,Down

We are still playing the chord of G
Repeat it all play my rhythm with me

You can repeat this, a time or two
Before long the same sound won't do

keep the progression it does need to remain
I usually arpeggiate so its not the same

Now mix it up between picking and strums
But don't change the timing or miss the drums

This song is of love and sweetness that I wrote
But I cant finds the words to go with the note

So instead of playing this tune without a word   
Ill write you this song with no music note to be heard

Song of Gratitude

The day is bright with autumn chill and scented air is brisk and pure
And silent gardens are put to bed, as end of year draws swiftly near
We hear the music of the trees, of rustling leaves of red and tan
Let's sing a song to thank our God, for lavish beauty of this land
While autumn drops across the hills, with stain ablaze in amber glow
And hearts are filled with peace of mind to know He keeps a watch below
The wind seeks out the apple tree and rises with celestial zest
And mighty oaks drop acorns free,  soon squirrels will scurry to their nest
Where ample harvest from golden earth, and flying geese bid sweet adieu
While loved ones gather around the hearth, our Lord, these blessing come from you
And when the trees are stripped and bare, a world takes rest, to start anew
We bow our heads in silent prayer,
             For things like these and many more
                 We sing our song of gratitude.....

My Final Verse

Everybody has a story there’s a song for every human being
Each has an individual message told by the words they sing

Sometimes that song is full of pain it’s full of pain and strife
Other times it clearly describes the one true blessing of our life

In the story of my song if it were to come to end this very day
What do you really think the final verse of my song would say?

This truly is my philosophy, this is my true philosophy of life
The final verse of my song will sing, “My God I love my Wife”

That’s the way my final verse will start and also how it will end
For when the Lord gave my wife to me, he gave me my friend

My wife is not just my lover though loving her has been great
She is more the essence of my soul she is my true soul mate

To save her one second of pain I would take pain ten thousand years
Because I know every second of it she would be there to dry my tears

Before I would cause her any pain I would die the most dreaded death
Because I shall adore her heart and soul with my every single breath

To the world I am not too proud to say, not too proud to say this at all
Without her my final verse would have no words for she has wrote them all

Does that mean one of them will have to "Walk The Line?"

Kenny says "Don't Blink"
Or you may find Tim is "Already Home."

"Tear Drops On My Guitar" has Taylor like Lambert
"Famous In A Small Town."

I arrived "Down In The Boon Docks"
Only to find Rodney was "Going Through Hell"

Kenny C. said "You Had Me From Hello"
But George prefers the "Beaches Of Old Mexico"

I saved this special song for the end.
Alabama's "Angels Among Us"

Every time I hear this song I break out in a cold sweat.  Many years ago my 
granddaughter Mariah in Casper, Wy was attending the summer camp, on 
Casper Mountain, for her boys and girls group. This group included handicapped 
children. Friday afternoon the children presented a program for the parents. It 
was magnificent. The children helped the handicapped children get on and off of 
the stage for their part in the program. The finally began with all of the children on 
stage.  They played Alabama's song "Angels Among Us" but the children all 
preformed it in sign language. There was not a dry eye in the audience.  A well 
deserved ending to a successful summer camp. 

God Bless, Cile

Virtuous Woman

Who can find a virtuous woman for her price is far above rubies
I’ve found one and I found it in you so I will kill you softly w/my song like the Fugees
You presence is so soothing and your voice gently moves me
Stimulating every bit of my heart is just another one of your duties
You deserve more than lunch at luby’s or dinner and a movie
But a throne to crown as queen of my affection 4ever you shall reign so rule me
I honor you woman of faith, for all the things you did 
For you are the most amazing thing to come from man’s rib
Your eyes are doves, your voice roars above seas
Built to take more sh** than a pair of used huggies
The Song of Solomon describes you as dark and lovely and that you are
The brightest star shining in the night sky up close and from afar 
Quite adventurous like Tom Sawyer, with the mind capacity of a lawyer
Wrestled, fought, and won so many battles, I call you my Ultimate Warrior
You are poetry in motion, burning with the desire of cave torches
As elegant as a princess stagecoached in a chariot of white horses
Speak to me woman of faith, so I can hear the Angels call
The bible tells us, many women do noble things but you surpass them all

LOVE'S AFTERGLOW

Ah, memory, sweet memory,
Why do you come to torture me
With images, of a days gone by,
So tender sweet they make me sigh.
Fond memories, so sweet--in truth--
Like honey on an aching tooth.
Like nectar's taste upon the tongue,
No sweeter song was ever sung.
But that song is sung--that day is gone,
And the flow of life must still go on.
So, memories that torment me,
Go on your way and let me be.
That perfect day is gone, I know--
I'm living in its afterglow.
