Magic

Enchantment of magic’s sweet passion has bound me
With minutes and hours I now must reclaim;
Spellbound, love calls to the spirits around me
And drifts into dreams at the sound of his name.

The breath of his memory awakens from slumber;
I hear the soft whispers of a loving refrain
That stirs in my heart such an infinite hunger
With incense to scent each exquisite strain.

The face of my love comes back in a vision
With sounds of his voice in the soft grey gloom;
In a twilight of stars when the scent is Elysian
I wait for him under the plum tree in bloom.

So hushed is the flute of a love song enchanted
With music he played when his mouth was stirred;
 I now hear the song so tenderly haunted
Invading my dreams with all that I heard.

As green leaves and blossoms twine and are braided
The strings of my heart have come undone;
When the lush of the green vine is woven unfaded
The binding of my heart with his is as one.

This Song is for my Mother

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
I couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
A song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created and cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Memory of a mother
Shared my dreams and really cared

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Mama…
I know I wasn’t there……

For you

Would have placed 
A magic carpet 
‘neath your weak and shaky legs

Would have raised
A strong west wind
Let you breathe with ease again

Would have bribed 
God’s venal angels
Come and soothe your endless pain

Would have vanquished
All the demons
And bring peace to you again

Be the child
I never knew
In a land
We won’t grow old

Be the light
I always loved
Warmed my dark 
And lonely soul

Be the girl
Playing games
In a world 
The sun won’t set

Be the laughter
Calms my heart
I never will forget
I won’t forget, won’t forget

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
Couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
Song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created….cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

I broke my promises, oh mama
Now you’ve gone away 
I’m broken
Drowning in the pain each day

I’m  drowning…drowning...drowning…drowning

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me…….

Poet's spirit, Warrior's heart

Poet's spirit, Warrior's heart

A poet's spirit once contested with a warrior's heart
  after ten thousands moons had flown silently past 
from that both found they were not far apart
  thus a kingdom born , with peace and love as a start
ever does the grace of love roam and so freely last.....

Every Universe has at it's foundation love and grace....

Asylum Bound

I'm not really sure how to explain 
This strange feeling with my feeble brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane.

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me 
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound. 
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound. 

I'm not really sure how to explain
This madness taking over my brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane. 

Well, I'm not quite sure I can complain 
About the thoughts of you that consume my brain- 
They're driving me a good kind of insane. 

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound.  
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound.

If I believed in love, then in love we would be. 
You set this bitter, cold heart ablaze inside me. 
I only feel sane when you come around- 
Without you my dear, I'll be asylum bound. 

No, I'm not quite sure how to explain
This strange new feeling with my feeble brain-
But my dear, you drive me perfectly insane.

Song in the Dark

~
There are legends I've heard, old songs in the dark
of the old folklore tales, and the old gypsy trails,
where traveling caravans of rugged old wagons
still echo, with longing, in valleys below...

Where each treasured belonging,
was packed in a hurry 
all the stories, all the worry, all the heartache would travel
all the sunshine, and the sorrow, celebrations to marvel
and  dreams of tomorrow, were kept on the road....

The trail was a friend, and the loam was their home
Their needs were quite small,
For,  they didn't expect, to be wealthy or rich.
All the riches they had, were scarce and so few...but they knew
that happiness could be the sun on your back, or a sky, wide and blue...
Not much to expect,  and not even respect...
would be theirs to be owned.

As the twilight would come, under a red setting sun,
with the fragrance of loam, and the tired walk done... 
they would bed under trees where the heather was strewn
they would burn a small fire, and prepare a warm meal,
with smoke in the breeze, while the whippoorwill's song 
and accordion tunes, would drift by the face of the moon

On their heels was the dust, in the noontime sun
They rose with the dawn, and the gold of the past, 
wearing the colorful hope of tomorrow's new task 
Working wherever a meal, and dollar would come
Then moving again with their band until dusk
over, and over and over again...

Some called them tramps, and some called them small thieves
But the heart of the matter, was the love of the sun,
the love of the life that came from the moon,
from the stars, and the grass, and the rust of the leaves

For those who encountered, and who gave them a chance
could learn many things by watching them dance,
and learn many things by hearing them sing,
and pay close attention to how much they knew
that fortune is something that comes from inside
It comes with the pride, of knowing what matters
The tattered, lost life of the old gypsy tribes  ....
      might be the saddest of stories, or loneliest song... 
                    a song that has faded,
                                that has dwindled and died....

Life's Love Story

Written for the contest
MORE SONG LYRICS

Have you ever seen, the sun setting down
Upon this red roofed town
And hear the sound of love begin
I have never found a more perfect place
Than, when I see your face
I simply fall in love again

Don't ask me which way the wind will blow
Or the tide will flow
Or even where, our love will go
I just know there could never be a place 
Where I can’t feel your warm embrace
With those lips I love to taste

Have you seen the mountains rising from the sea
That’s where I want to be 
With you eternally, in grace
We hear our tune, carried along the wind
Strummed on life’s violin
As a tear rolls down your face

Don’t ask me why the good times seem to fly
Or why some passion dies,
Or how lovers, can say Goodbye
All I know is when I leave this tropic heat
I am filled with the Latin beat
Until the next time on this street,  we meet

I fell in like with you

Inspired by one of my favorite bands, Rise Against, and the song is called,
“Ever-changing” (Acoustic). Please listen to this song if you don’t know of it. It’s raw &
powerful.

“Have you ever been a part of something? That you thought would never end. But then, of
course, it did.” –Rise Against

“I fell in ‘Like’ with you”

With her smile
I melted unto oblivion’s redemption
Candy coated perceptions, windows’ gap
Seeping brilliance refreshment

Uncertainty resolution, polished
Absorbed into closeness sun
Yet these eyes still…see
Butterflies taking notice, missing you…as you stood in front of me

Strong, yet soft legs
Foundation of my face to rest upon
Scars…fading
A cremated sin 

Yet, elongated moments of silence
Created abruption’s new face

The face of change
When she turned to me and said
“I’m not sure, anymore”

Emotional lullaby, rocking me to sleep
New battles with spectral flashback
Trying to get under my skin, a drunken tick facing demise

Phoenix’s sunrise, rejuvenating my recycled defenses
Yet, today, these rays just aren’t bright enough to burn sadness away

And with these sounds of storm clouds & Fall on horizon’s breath
These grounds are so familiar, yet bittersweet
This heart doesn’t want to be enlightened by karma today

It wants to be held for how it shines now

Denied…distance wins again today
Slavery whipped punishments in miles and blocks
This must end

Because I try to keep lines open to get a call from you
Yet all I hear are booty calls with busy signals

And yet something has kept me here too long
But can they leave me, if I’m already gone?

Something has kept me here too long
Karma’s laughter

But, through it all, I will shine

…

How I wish my mere presence can bring joy’s tear to her eye

Sadly though, now, the lines are drawn
Yet I wonder if this feeling is gone
Have the best parts of this…come and gone?

…

Maybe I’ll never know the truth

Perhaps she was misguided by jealousy’s deprivation
Deteriorating heart’s splendor

While I fell in “like” with her

Perhaps “Better Man 2.0” appeared from Cloud 9’s fallacy

While I fell in “like” with her

Perhaps
She held onto the past

As I, drawn to waterfall’s edge
Allowed myself

To let go…and F

Take me away but I promise to sing a Song

NOTE: I have placed this Poem as a Video Poem also on
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/profile.php?id=100001219732381

[ This Poem is dedicated to Freedom of Expression  
and Tibetan Dharma Guru Shri Dalai Lama to support
his struggle for the cause of Freedom of Expression ]


Take me away but I promise to sing a Song


Take me away from such a place, 
Where feelings and emotions, 
cannot be freely expressed. 

Where new thoughts and ideas are crushed,
By the rod of power and corrupts.

Where mind do not get the opportunity to reveal,
its vast sea of beauty and varying colors.

Where love never flies freely in the sky,
while touching the unexplored lofty heights, and
wings of Poetry are nipped in the buds, 
before they bloom and spread their smiles.

Where wind do not flow,
while touching the flowers and buds,
Where the butterflies do not have the freedom,
to show their varying moods and colors.

Where faiths have lost their grandeurs and glow, and
shrines are converted into suffocating barracks.
 
Where love has lost its magic of moving a heart, 
to sing a song and dance on the call of its soul,
Where a vast sea of humans live,
without the freedom of expression.

Take me away from such a land and place,
Where people live in chains under iron curtains.

I promise I will come back to this land one day,
when the breeze will flow freely touching every heart,

When its people will have the freedom to fly on their wings,
I promise I will come back,  to such a place one day,

When animals too would move without fear in their hearts, and
birds would be free to fly anywhere in the sky.

When the morning dew would greet the new rising Sun,
By glittering without fear, its silver and golden beams,
When flowers and buds would freely spread, 
their alluring wings and fragrance in the air.

When the human mind would be free to explore and express, 
its ideas and colors on the canvas of paper.

I promise I will come to such a land one day,  
to Sing the song of joy and mirth.

I've Scribbled This Song For You



I've Scribbled This Song For You...


I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...


now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,


la laa laa la laa laa laa...


(repeat to fade)


:-)

My Sweet Past Tone

Once you filled the room which hollow for a moment
Couples of days before new year eve we indirectly met
Hilarious to remember how we know and admire each other that day
Without knowing it won't last forever

One song... One song keep chanting me back to the memory of you
The song of blue sky collapse
Year goes by, first, second and more
Each of my story buried you without trace

Until today you seek me through the mailbox
Simple words as "happy birthday" and more words as "still think about you"
Surprised, touched, even mine still one more day to go
You missed the day, but you caught my yearn

Thousands words would I type to reply
But the fact my hands stoned
I missed you even more, sealed beyond these words
But don't know how to say nor expressed it through the blank page

Once you filled this hollow room
Once I ever loved you
But I found my better way... better life...
And decide not to look back

January 7, 2013
Dedicated to the person who ever dwell within the past of my sweet memory...

The Love Song

You are the yearn of my days 
Like the new air of my breath
Sunshine greets through my morning
As if I was slept under the bliss

And if I had to leave from my certain place
To be the other side where there is you
I will catch every second of time
Just only to stay whole with you

I would say and sing it to the blue sky
How's love flood through our kiss
It made our world swirl and fly by
Like a miracle of pendulum swing

Days kept changing, unfolding
But still I'm insist to be here
Moon rose like too early
Seemed it stayed to be apathetic

And if I had to leave from my certain place
To be the other side where there is you
I will catch every second of time
Just only to stay whole with you

I would say and sing it to the blue sky
How's love filled and made me full with you
Immeasurable even by time
For all I want is you

And won't I take all those back again
Though I'm suffered in pain
Promised to be by your side
For I know and I can see 
The same lonesome in you and me 

*inspired by Anne Currin contest "Song Lyric"

Note: This is actually my old song lyric. I made a big modification and few changes of words in it regarding to the differences of language, but hopefully it still worth to be read :) enjoy!

NEVER FELT SO RIGHT

You can be my girl, come on
I can be your guy, that's right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

It's not good to be apart 
Let me see it in your eyes
Don't look away, okay
Please don't ever disguise
Cause in those pretty eyes
Your soul's totally exposed
I can see your heart, oh my
My want for you just grows

Here's my hand right now
I can be your man, oh wow
You can be my song, my tune
I'm your biggest fan, I swoon 
Magic's in the air, stardust
Girl we got to start, gotta trust
It's not even fair, don't fly
I can see your heart, oh my

When you're holding my hand
My world is spinning a round
I'm inside out, I'm upside down
Girl you give me vertigo.. Vertigo
Crazy love never felt so right
Gonna hold you day and night
Oh, here comes the white flag
I surrender
I surrender
I surrender.. without a fight
Crazy love never felt so right

You can be my girl, come on
I can be your guy, that's right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

I surrender.. without a fight
Crazy love never felt so right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight
Crazy love never felt so right

Serenity

 

As a peaceful wind pushed long and free
simple love had arrived in perfect time
with a song of jubilation rolling pure through the valley
a seed of love took flight in summer winds  free

simple love had arrived in perfect time
as I lay naked upon ancient rocks of graceful light
a seed of love took flight in summer winds free
Gods grace in delicate strokes touched me

as I lay naked upon ancient rocks of graceful light
with a song of jubilation rolling pure through the valley
Gods grace in delicate strokes touched me
as a peaceful wind pushed long and free

How Could I Tell

I walk no more on soft green mosses,
Under the trees where green branch tosses;
Where scent of leaf and red rose flinging,
Perfume the wind with soft scent clinging.

I walk no more by the ocean dreaming,
Where sunbeams fly with grey gulls screaming;
Over the cliffs where wild waves falling,
Sweep up the sound in echoes calling.

I hear no more the sea shell's story,
Along the shore with sunset's glory;
Only the song from the dark cave's hollow,
That siren song I dare not follow.

Words you spoke leave me broken hearted,
For now I find you have departed;
For I loved you well but you left me lonely,
How could I tell if you loved me only?

Within Her Breath

Within Her Breath

I heard upon the desert wind,
a song that sounds so sweet.
It lives within this dry parched land,
that lays beneath my feet

It grows within the desert palm,
and shines within its sun.
A song that reaches deep inside,
that’s not for everyone.

A song I see in eyes so bright,
and in that flowing hair.
A song that creeps into the heart,
and rides the desert air.

For if I stop and feel the wind,
I know that I will hear.
The softness of your bated breath,
as I am drawing near.

I’ll hear your passion on the wind,
and touch your gentle hand.
I’ll ride between those swaying palms,
upon the desert sand.

For I will pick the fruit of love,
that lives within the palm.
And hear within your gentle breath,
a loving desert psalm.

Blame it on the Bossa Nova

There is a catchy tune recorded during an earlier day. This recording was made by the talented Eydie Gorme. Yes, she was the same one who was Steve Lawrence’s wife. The song turned out to be the biggest hit of her life. On a popular dance she wanted to put the blame. The “Bossa Nova” was what ignited her love flame. A handsome guy caught her eye; then she wanted to dance. Eydie said that was what started her romance. Just listen to the song if it is something you don’t know. Perhaps you might be one to fall in love also.

The Song of the Christmas Snow

There is nothing with so much life as a Christmas snow
The crisp air is still as little dancing stars float to the earth
Strong old trees become burdened with drifts of white upon their bows
But seem honored to be dressed in such finery and appear almost to move
In fact, everything has come to life to watch the snowfall.
Then everything is quiet
There is a whisper in the air
It ripples through the trees
See the birds, they are the first to recognize the whisper
As the Masters of Chorus, the birds know it is a song
They sit as true musicians memorizing the lyrics and rhythm
So, the snow speaks, the voice is old, like it has sung this song many times
As the squirrels could tell you this is a lullaby, and they begin to search from their 
perches in the trees for the newborn
And life and love has never felt as strong as now
A horse in its pastures stomps his foot disturbed
Though he hears the song the birds do and the lullaby the squirrels hear, he, 
along with all of the worlds creatures, could swear he just heard a cry
The squirrels chatter with laughter, knowing they where right and the birds take 
up the snow-song to welcome the child they heard cry
And then they stop and the world is silent
The snow has stopped falling
The cry was only a memory from Christmas long past
The child, a child of time whose
 Voice comes with the Christmas snows,
To give every soul the chance to hear
The song of joy and love and beginning,
So it is never forgotten;
The song of the Christmas Snow

The First Time Ever

The first time ever I saw your face
a pioneering heart began to race,
the first time ever I saw your smile
long journey but worth every single mile,
the first time ever your magical touch
sparks the memory I remember so much,
the first time ever a glimpse of your eyes
those that shamed the blueness of godly skies,
the first time ever in warm embrace
the sweetness of your breath one could taste.

The first time ever to hold you in dance
we held on tight in true loves romance,
beneath the moonlight to “This song is Blue”
yes together we dance just me just you.

The first time ever we said goodbye
the trial the tribulations of the saddest eye,
transferred to one’s sentiment does lend
this to vow this love will never end!

Langue d'oc, a Micro-Paradelle

Your love song lapsed into ancient French that April day.
I only understood the words of spring and heartsore
lapsed. Only love and heartsore, I understood your ancient 
words of the spring-day song into that French April.

You fabricate my pauses into repetition, silence speaks
of ages strung to rhyme in love’s difficult service
you strung into pauses in service to ages. Fabricate of
love’s repetition, rhyme speaks my difficult silence.

We practice tedium of vows till language breaks apart.
As if art should aim at science, rigorous, quantitative,
rigorous language breaks tedium. Science vows a part of 
quantitative practice till we should aim “as if” at art.

Till we lapsed into language. As your ancient ages only
fabricate quantitative French strung to that difficult
practice, science speaks of tedium and understood rhyme. 

The spring in service of love’s rigorous vows. April 
pauses, heartsore. You and I, apart. If love should aim 
my words at day, repetition breaks into silence of song.

I Sing You A love Song

I sing a love you song for you ,my dear.
While close my eyes I think of your face.
Let the words slip in my lips 'til you hear.
The memories of true love can't erase.

I sing you a love song 'til the sun meets the moon.
Under the meteor rain showers in  the sky.
I let the wind blow so strong and carry these sounds.
'Til you hear my heart cries in the night.

I sing you a love song 'til the flowers bloom again.
Let the bees sting  its nectar and be filled.
And wait for the sunrise to finish the dreams.
To wake up in your arms like 'twas yesterday.

I sing a love song... hope you'll hear it.
Then let me feel that this voice is being heard.
'Cos I'm dying every moment when I'm awake.
Knowing that you can never  feel this pain.

The Boatmans Song 2

The Boatman’s Song        2/ Many

Urvashi’s heart was aching to hear and to see the elegance  
Of the boatman, while he sing those melodies on earth 
A great longing started sprouting in her bosom  
To visit the earth and to listen those heart touching songs 
Which like a powerful magnet were pulling her towards earth
Where flows the Ganges and lives her unseen love 

To control her ever increasing desire of hearing those songs 
And to see that unique boatman, who lives on earth 
Urveshi tried to engage her more and more 
In the courtly dances and engagements for Indra
But the more she wanted to escape, more she became enchanted
By the echoes of boatman’s songs 
Which were tearing her heart and 
Making her mind almost intoxicated,  
By the melodies of those heavenly songs

The pleasures and comforts of heaven began to pinch her 
Like the piercing thorns 
Even the dance and music, which were her pride and passion
Became dull and charm less in the wake of those songs
For which she was hailed 
As the best among all the Apsaras in the entire universe  

Heaven seems to bring no joy and rejoicing for her any more
Her dancing steps, which were the symbols of perfection and beauty
Even started betraying her 
As her own heart was no longer in her possession any more
And she found that her mind and heart
Were swept away by that unseen boatman
Sailing his boat somewhere on earth

Apsara Urveshi after finishing her dance that day 
Told the God of heaven, Indra
That she perhaps can no longer perform any dance
Owing to agonies of her heart and restlessness of her mind
And her legs were not in tune with her mind to perform
A flawless dance and song by which she had captured the 
Hearts of all Gods and Goddess, what to say of humans on earth

She thought and thought and found that she can only normalize
If she can hear the songs of the boatman 
Singing in full throated ease on earth 
The echo’s of which were hovering in her mind like clouds
And twisting her heart to see that singer sublime

If Only

If only it didn't just take a second to get to heaven
The devil's smiling, bet he didn't tell you it's the fast track to hell
My smile's only temporary, but so is this life sentence I've been given
I never was asked if I wanted to start living.

So I'm..
Hanging by a thread
My sanity is laughing at me
In the mirror, staring at the person 
Who seems to be wandering
Empty and lost, like a penny on tails
Unlucky and left behind, story of a person
Such as mine.

My confusion is confused
Piece of mind tattered and loose
The love song from my heart, sings to the wind
Carrying on, I think it's never to end
Because it winds like the river
Occasionally winks and sparkles
Off a sunset reflection, searching for a tomorrow
But sometimes deep blue
Sad, like the pulsing veins
Of a heartbroken poet
Insane in the brain.
 
If only you could see me, then maybe.
If only you could save me, yeah then maybe.

Then maybe
Tears wouldn't run down the face and
Hurry away from the pain in the eyes
Of a person with nightmares
And teardrop filled skies.

A person who dreams of a better tomorrow
But memories are the chains
Bearing back her heart 
And holding the jagged pieces together
From falling apart.

I'm lonely
Do you see my face?
I'm trying
To get a grip nowadays
Yeah you could help me
Get me out of this place
If only, yeah if only.

Hoping one day another
Will hear her song through the breeze
And linger back to the place 
Where she kneels hopelessly
Desired to be glued together
Band aid, or tacked
She just wants to become whole again
And never look back.
Wants to trampled by love
Stampeded to the beat
Of love and loyalty
Someone she can keep.

Her broken smile will reign
And she'll rip stanzas from her soul
Trickling toxic tragedies
Painting pictures in your eyes
Watch her sorrows like a movie
On replay in your mind.
 
Her theatre is her torture chamber
Lashing you down to your raw memories
Don't look around, don't hide
Don't let your mistakes trouble your mind
Your blood is flowing
And you've still got time
To change the future
Is to change your mind

Maybe, then maybe.
You could save me
After you save yourself
Then you could help me
I've got nobody else, if only.

Yeah
If only.

Something You Left Behind

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something I did not expect to find.
The sudden surge of memories
Shocked me so hard I couldn't breathe—
It almost knocked me to my knees.
My whole world came undone. 

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something that you wore when you were mine.
You wore it with your wedding gown,
Like a tiara or a crown.
It turned my world all upside down.
You always were “the one”.

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something that my love for you enshrined.
I found it hidden from the light,
That thing you used to wear at night.
That came down when I held you tight,
Back when we were one.

I found something of yours you left behind,
Something that I never wished to find—
'Cause there's no going back, you see,
To times when you were here with me.
You left a painful void in me;
But still life must go on.

I think of what you left behind
And then it came to me:
The saddest thing you left behind
Turned out to be me.

(Chorus )
I thought I'd gotten over you;
But I was wrong, you see.
You don't get over love that's true,
Nor what was meant to be.

A Dawn Duet

Her breathing moves a strand of golden hair
that lays upon her pillow, next to mine, 
yet in this evening birdsongs on the air 
awaken me to listen and recline.

This errant bird, whose song dispatches sleep,
is laughing at a long forgotten jest
or maybe woos a distant mate who, deep
inside her feathered nest, finds better rest.

I watch the window, night begins to fade
and so do I.  As slumber beckons me
I hear a distant answer softly made:
A dawn duet resplendent in our tree.

A single song brings answers in the air
as my beloved sleeps without a care.

The Lady I Love

The lady I love is true to herself
and in that respect she is true to me.
She has cast her eyes to see no one else.

Such a love as ours is ordained to be.
To loves sweet song our hearts beat as one
and in that respect she is true to me.

The game of life, it seems, we both have won.
With our children raised grows our family.
To loves sweet song our hearts beat as one.

Although we are old, we live cozily
our days pass quickly in a hurried style,
with our children raised grows our family.

When I close my eyes, I can see her smile.
Our love is still strong yet our time grows short
Our days pass quickly in a hurried style.

We will be together in Heaven's court.
The lady I love is true to herself.
our love is still strong yet our time grows short.
I have cast my eyes to see no one else.

Is She the One?

Is she the one?
I’m left wondering, if she’s the one.
Has a new love song just begun?
We’re having fun,
Is she the one?

But what am I to her?
Could she possibly concur?
For love to occur
I must be right for her;
Does she, me prefer?

Are we meant to be?
Or, is it a fantasy?
Has love struck only me?
Or, possibly,
Set us free?

If she is the one,
Our lives have just begun.
All others I will shun;
She’ll be the only one.
I’ll not have this love undone.

How do I find this out?
Should I, my feelings shout?
Even though I have a doubt
Whether or not she’s figured out
If I am the one she can’t be without.

I must stop wondering,
About what the future brings,
So I don’t ruin things,
Worrying,
Tugging strings.

If she is the one,
Tomorrow yet will come,
Our love will be hanging on
The feeling won’t be gone,
If for each other we are the one.

And I will know,
And she will know,
And our love will grow
As we get old
And our story is told.

I hope she is the one;
Please let her be the one;
My morning sun,
My journey done,
My love song sung.

Heaven's Song

There is a song amidst the heavens 
From days so long ago.
It's words are played amongst the stars
So soft and very slow.

They sing about the One above
Who made them all to shine.
They sing about His awesome deeds
He's done throughout all time

His works they are so very great
That even nature shows.
How there must be someone above
To make each thing to grow.
 
Now you can hear that song at night  
 If you are very still.
About the one that died for us
Upon that lonely hill

But He is not there anymore 
Nor will He ever be.
For  while He lives above the stars
He  also lives in me.

Will you ask Him in your life now
If you don't know Him yet.
He'll take away all sins decay
Erasing all sins debt.

There is a song a  midst the stars
From days so long ago
Each word declares the majesty
Of Jesus Christ I know.

Inspired by Psalm 19: 1-3

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
Night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
Where their voice is not heard.

Words

It's funny how the words of songs
Can climb into your mind,
That same song they've played
A thousand times.

The melody is all I'd hear,
The words were muffled then,
When we were so much in love
And oh such close, close friends.

But now the sadness in my heart
And fear of losing you,
Makes my thoughts a fog of feelings
Drifting out of view.

And the song they've played a thousand times
That slips within my ears,
Can live without the melody,
The words are all I hear.

Poet vs Rapper

I have two sides to my ability much wickegery,

Sometimes i be on deep space nine with unlimited imagery,

My mentality is too far gone you cant catch it,

Im a poet and a rapper combined my mind wont let me forget it,

Sometimes i start off in a song format and i resist it,

I want the poet to supercede my thoughts cause thats the ticket,

I love to write a song and a poem i love to do them both,

In a Poem you can walk through my life its me and you up close,

 Its all poetry though whats different is how you deliver,

Its like a fight between what fake (hiphop) and whats real (poetry) i need a mind sitter,

Its a everyday struggle with words i need to decide,

Which of the 2 thought processes im gonna run with and take that ride.

The Boatman's Song 7/ Many

The Boatman’s Song                       7/Many

Inner Conflict of Urveshi

While her mind was cautioning her to retain
The comforts and luxuries of heaven
And not to go to earth, which can take form her
The blessings to live in heaven
Her heart again tried to murmur in her mind
Was she really happy? In the heaven sublime
Was not she tired of living in comforts and 
Was not she fed-up with the non ending joys?

What was this life without anything to sacrifice
Without the joys of pains and pleasures after sufferings
Where everyone meets, but no one departs
Where everyone sings, but no heart rejoice
Where everything is gained, without ever any loss
Where seasons remain same, without any change
And never the heart moves, to sing a sad song
Where no Koyal* sings, its melodies in spring
Where no flower fades and always remains the same
Where no one feels tired and no one ever retires
Where no one fails and no one wins

Urveshi’s mind felt fed-up with these never ending comforts
Her heart exclaimed in utmost uneasiness and pain
Even these non ending comforts are useless 
Without love, loss and gain 

Urveshi’s decision

She made-up her mind to at least go to earth
To listen the songs of the boatman first 
Songs of the boatman, for which she has fought
So much so, with her mind and heart 

Lord Indra’s reaction

When Indra came to know
The decision of the heart of Urveshi
He was stunned for a moment
As the decision was beyond his imagination
His mind could not conceive 
That someone can think like this
And can take such a dooming decision
It was beyond his mind and imagination 
That Urveshi can decide to leave the heaven
Which is her most prideful possession
And a place for which every one prays
And waits and waits to find such an abode of 
Their hearts longings and wishes

Indra knew that without Urveshi
Even the heaven would loose its luster and shine
As its prime beauty would no longer be inspiring to smile
Or would no longer be dancing 
To enjoy the songs of Urveshi

Urveshi’s Visit to Earth 

While on way to the earth from heaven
Urveshi was still thinking and trying to find a way
How to go close to that boatman’s voice
Whose song echoes had already 
Captured her mind and heart so tightly

The Boatman's Song 10/ Many

The boatman’s Song				10/Many

The beauty of that black horse got doubled
With the glittering beauty of the princess on the horse 
Who was elegantly riding that black horse beauty 
While coming towards the boatman with a speed 
He had never seen earlier, when a lady was on a horse 

Her shining long black hairs and few locks on her face, were
Blending with the ravishing beauty of her charming face
Which even the sunbeams were trying to penetrate
To kiss her rosy lips and her glowing lovely face
And with each gush of morning beams
A blush came on her lovely face
On which hundreds and thousands can live and die
And can wait for a whole life to see that face

Her body was glittering like a gem
Because of her teenage and beauty excelling her age
And her youth over sprouting from her bosoms
From her princes sly top and riding trousers
She was dazzling the eyes of the boatman
As there was no one else 
Who could dare to behold her beauty and grandeur
Which was par excellent, any where on earth

She stepped down from the horse back 
With a beautiful sharp jump on the sand
And stood beside the heavenly beautiful horse
She saw the boatman was standing near his boat
And was singing a melody unaware of her gaze

The moment the princess heard that voice
Her heart jumped from her chest
Which had just calmed from thrills
As she had stepped by jumping from the horseback
And her body had calmed only few seconds back

Enchanted and allured by the beauty and heaviness of voice
And totally stunned to see his manliness, so warrior like tight
She forgets her princes sly pride and got lost in adoring
His song and his enchanting voice
Coming from the depths of that singers heart
Suddenly she found herself standing before the boatman
Lost in his heart capturing eyes

There was no one else except these two
And the boatman could not believe
Whether it was a dream or a reality come true
He too was lost in the charms of her eyes
And even forgot to finish the song he was singing
And felt only that someone was penetrating 
In his heart and mind, deep some where very deep

Sing a Song of Roses

Came from California, looking for a place to fall:
Portland’s good as anywhere, and now it’s best of all;
Learned to love the roses, and the rivers full of rain;
California drove me north, and Portland drove me sane.

Leaving all my memories back behind where they belong,
Sang a song of roses, and I let it make me strong,
Lifting up my life inside my hands to make it grow
Tall as any mountain rising mighty in the snow.

Sing a song of roses,
Dreams of me and you,
Portland love encloses
Dreams of me and you, 
Sing a song of roses.

Gentle people welcoming you, with an open hand, 
Mighty people not afraid to fight to keep their land;
City on the river floating ships from overseas;
People soft as roses, people tough as Oregon trees.

Been a long time coming, but I’m here to rest awhile,
Never mind the highway, never mind the weary mile;
You and me and roses, and the salmon in the streams;
Can’t believe were thriving, Portland rain has washed our dreams.

The Boatman's Song 9/ Many

The Boatman’s Song       9/Many

After taking some passenger, the boatman moved his boat
And while oaring the boat he started his singing 
Tarang felt as if, someone was pouring honey in her ears
While her heart and mind got enchanted by the song of the boatman
It was a rare pleasure for a nymph, to hear such a voice on earth
For a very long time she could not know, how much time passed away
She found the boatman was about to reach the other bank’s end 

The Boatman was lost in his own world of thoughts
Tarang* thought to find more from his mind
As she was capable to enter in a human minds to know its 
Past, present and even future designs
She took a dive deep into his busy mind and 
Traced all that she wanted to find, within no time

But to her surprise, there were many things
Totally different than what she was expecting to find
The boatman was a prince in exile, escaped to save his life
From those who were trying to kill him
To rule his fathers kingdom and he was living in disguise

From seeing his body Tarang had felt herself
That this man is not an ordinary Youngman
Having all the qualities of a true warrior like body 
But what shocked Tarang was the knowledge 
Of the boatman’s love affair with a princess 
For whom he was looking at those sand dunes
And for her only he used to sing those heart touching songs

Tarang* knew that this truth would be devastating for Urveshi*
Who has come to earth, all along from heaven
As she is deeply in love with this extra ordinary man
Who is so appealingly charming and handsomely bold
In spite of his just crossed teenage, he looks like chief of an army
Only his soldiers appears to be missing or at rest 
Such was the real beauty of that boatman
Whose entire life was open before Tarang* like a book
And she could see even his future so bright
But Tarang* was sad to know all that 
As her friend Urveshi* was going to affected badly
When she would know that the boatman was 
Already in love with a princess of alluring beauty 

Boatman’s love story

Tarang traced the love story of the boatman
Which began one day, when he was waiting in his boat
For some passengers to come to move the boat 
From the river bank side
Suddenly he saw someone coming on a horseback
The riders black horse was shining
In that white sand spread all around, he could see that side

Folk Song of India Farmer, Clouds, Rains and Trees


A Folk Song of India My Video Song is also on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukRQxnYGQwQ&feature=plcp Background Note: Its a story of a worried Farmer as his fields were dry because of no rains & the season of planting Rice was passing fast. His eyes were full of tears while thinking, what he would eat & earn if he fails to plant the Rice saplings without good Rains in his fields. The song conveys feelings of an Indian farmer, who often face such situations due to lack of rains. Rains felt pity & flooded his fields or his love for Trees & Nature. Folk Song of India- Farmer, Clouds, Rains and Trees The Farmer was thinking, While sitting near his fields, How, he would plant, The saplings of Dhaan ( Rice). The clouds keep coming, But fly away and vanish soon, There are hardly few trees in the forest, Who can call and attract the clouds. To tell the clouds, The miseries of the farmer, As, clouds never overlook, The wishes of their beloved trees. But the trees could not convey and tell, The tortures and pains, they have suffered, One by one they have been cut and burned, By none other than their own nursing Man. Because of this only , The clouds often do not come, And run away without showering, When they see such humans. The Farmer was thinking, While sitting near his fields, How without rains he would plant, The saplings of Dhaan ( Rice). But that old farmer, Had planted many many trees, Thinking that the clouds, Came down on the ground. The eyes of the old farmer, Were wet and restless, Tears were appearing and were, Coming out, every now and then. The clouds hovering on the fields, Saw tears in his eyes, While wiping his tears, The clouds too began to weep. Then, it began to rain all over, And the fields got flooded soon, The old farmer raised his head, And saw towards the sky. After seeing all around, The fields flooded with water, The farmer with gratitude, Again & again touched the Rain clouds. Tears started flowing from his eyes, With happiness, And the clouds again showered more rains, To wipe the tears from the eyes of the old farmer. Then the time came to plant, The saplings of Dhaan (Rice), Without forests and their darling trees, Clouds hardly showers their love drops. The Farmer was thinking, While sitting near the fields, He would again plant, Many more and more tree this time.

The Mighty Kern (The end of many dreams)

You’re not real deep as rivers go
You’re really not that wide
When it comes to my feelings of you
They’re feelings I just can’t hide

Through giant boulders you descend 
Winding through canyon walls
Inside you many have met their end
As rapidly as your water falls

Merle Haggard wrote a song of you
You took someone he loved
His song is very beautiful and true
A gift from God above

At four I stood upon your banks
Watched my mother die
Like those before and after her
So many left to cry

Your pools are pools of death
Calm and still they seem
Whirlpools lurking underneath
The end of many dreams

And the Earthquake Shook

I was walking along,
    And I was singing this song,
        That has been playing inside my head.
If you’re as old as I,	
    You know “American Pie”,
        About the singer that has long been dead.

And so it seems,
    I was lost in my dreams,
        When this beauty came up to me.
She said, “Hey Mister,
    I know your sister,
        And I heard about your history.”

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

Although I tried,
    My tongue was tied,
        The words were stuck inside my throat.
I crashed my Chevy,
    Into the levy,
        If from that song I can steal a quote.

I just stared at her,
    Everything else a blur,
        I knew my world right then had changed.
I pressed forward fast,
    Erasing all my past,
        As if our love had been arranged.

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

We will keep my history,
    In this song a mystery,
        But it brought to me this girl.
Just know my soul was saved,
    By the path she paved,
        As I welcomed her in my world.

Now when “American Pie” I hear,
    It puts in my eye a tear,
        Remembering that fateful day.
When my angel came,
    While on the third refrain,
        And my loneliness passed away.

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

The Way It Was

The song starts to play and I start to cry
How can so much hurt come from a song like that?
Once upon a time it used to bring me happiness and laughs
Now all it brings me is sorrow
You were my world and the song was ours
Now you're gone leaving me with nothing but a broken heart
It isn't easy to forget about everything
That song meant so much to me and now it's all been taken away
I had a dream that the song was going to bring us together again
But now, I don't want to listen to the song anymore
The song is a constant reminder of our tragedy and it will always hurt
I've tried to forget but nothing seems to work
I'll listen to that song a million times more
Until the day we are reunited, together forever

Radha's Song- A folk Song of India 2/2

Radha’s  Song-   A folk Song of India  2/2

Prelude

This folk song is based on the childhood incidents 
of naughty 8-10 years old Krishna, who use to 
please everyone of Gukul village, Gokul is the 
place where the divine Krishna  was brought up 
by his foster mother Yashoda.  



O,  Please tell me,      what  should  I    do,
Speak a word,  to   extinguish  my worries,
I   cannot   live,                 without   seeing,
The  alluring face of  our  naughty Krishna.  

O,   please tell my friend,                how  should  I  manage it,
What plea and excuse  dear,            I can tell     in my  home,
How to go back to home,           without  Gagariya and Chunri,
Even without water, which would create only difficulties for me. 

Stunned  and mesmerized,  by the magic of our   Krishna, 
I stand here only,        in a state of being sweetly robbed,
Instead of searching my  Chunri and Gagariya,    O Sakhi,
I am trying to touch his alluring image only,   in  the water.

Clarifications:
*Radha.   Radha was the childhood friend and was one of the most beloved Gopi of Lord
Krishna. She was the   beauty, power and aura create the ethics of love. None of the
scriptures consists of the power to verbalize her beauty, for it is clear enough that when
beauty of Sri Krishna makes several hearts leave their boundaries, her beauty is so
mesmerizing that it makes Him loose consciousness.
*Krishna.   Krishna is often depicted as an infant or young boy playing a flute as in the
Bhagavata Purana  or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad
Gita. The stories of Krishna appear across a broad spectrum of Hindu philosophical and
theological traditions.] They portray him in various perspectives: a god-child, a model
lover, a divine hero and the Supreme Being.
*Gagariya. The earthen pot used still in Indian villages to collect water from river, pond
or wells.
* Chunariya.  A long strip of cloth to cover the beauty of a woman. It normally hangs on
the bosom to cover them.
Punghat.  Is the word used for a place from where water can be collected by village women
of India.
*Sakhi. Hindi word means female friend

My Love is Like a Bird

My love is like an Owl
Knowledgeable and deep and wise
My love is like the Raven
With magic behind its eyes

My love is like an Eagle
Its lineage crowned most high
My love is like a Lark
So swift and scarce and shy

My love is like the Peregrine
Soaring silent above the hill
My love is like the Dove
Spreading peace and good will

My love is like the Stork
Bringing life so fair and bright
My love is like the Sparrow
It’s intuition for life’s fading light

My love is like the Albatross
Floating high on fair winds
My love is like the Crow
The darkened portent that it sends

My love is like the fabled Tern
Crossing continents the status quo
My love is like the Penguin
With its tuxedo in the snow

My love is like the Mynah
Able to sing any song or say
My love is like the Rooster
Heralding each brand new day

But most of all my love is like the Lovebird
Her loving song oft heard
That perfect pair to my person
And the inspiration for these words

A Kiss Goodnight


Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight!
Gentle breezes in my face leave me weak.
Whistling words of love hold me 'til dawn's light...

Summer winds soften starry skies once bright.
I climb rustling trees. Love, windblown, I seek.
Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight!

Love's worth the battle. Through gusts, I shall fight!
Tho' whispering winds bring love soft and meek.
Whistling, words of love hold me 'til dawn's light...

Come forth again! The silence is my plight.
In the wind's absence, tomorrow seems bleak.
Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight! 

Gentle breezes raise romance to new height.
The warm southwinds soothe. Enamoured, I speak.
Whistling words of love, hold me 'til dawn's light...

Stay, my dear friend, you lift me like a kite.
Carry my soul higher than mountain peaks.
Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight...
Whistling words of love, hold me 'til dawn's light!

Music

Music calms the angry heart, its glorious rhythm penetrates the dark, the way I feel when the sound waves seep through my hair, consumes my soul with a suttle stare, my feet so happy, my body enriched with vibrations, my soul so at ease, I'm here for the taking.
 

I play from my experience, I put on a show, my hidden words entangled with the things that I know, smiles surround me, they glance by my feet, their inner beings amazed by my beat.
 

I beat my drums, I play my strings, they show me their affection, this is where I get my wings, they say I can fly, it seems I can soar, my music so perfect, they keep asking for more.
 

I do what I love, and they love what I do, music is my life, I am so happy that I can share it with you.

The Old Tree

It is strange
how things that we see
and take for granted
in everyday life
should suddenly instil
in our minds
a new awareness
of their presence

A silent moment
a brief pause
from life's ever quickening pace
a moment of peace -
in times like these
a common thing
like a dried old tree
becomes alive with beauty

It stands like a quiet sentinel
who has witnessed 
many an event 
through time
Time has passed by 
but it remains 
silently standing there
O Tree!
What secrets do you store
in your noble branches?
How many events have you recorded
that man knows nothing of?

In your younger days
when you wore your mantle of green
you nested the carefree birds
to their offspring
you gave protection
When the sun scorched the earth
you gave them cool shade
On a cool windy night
you gave them warmth
How pleasant was their song 
to your ear 
as they sang a song of thanks
to you

You were a playmate to the children
When they romped at your feet
or climbed on your branches
you smiled
Time grew older
and the children became lovers
You saw them kiss in your shade
soft with the light of the moon
The aura of their love
touched your leaves
and you blushed

Today 
they have all gone away
but you still remain 
silent sentinel
still waiting and watching
How many untold events 
have you witnessed
faithful keeper of secrets?

O that my soul could commune with you
and share of your rugged beauty!
Most Noble Tree!
forgive me for my
once-waxen eyes

Brush Away The Tear

Do I see a tear there in your eye -- Reflecting broken dreams from days gone by? Was it caused by something I have done? Or do you feel you’re not my only one? Can I help you drive away the pain And let you know how you’ve not loved in vain? Let me change your heartache to a sigh And brush away the tear there in your eye. Do I see a frown there on your face – Reflecting pain that time cannot erase? Is your love for me now turning cold – Or have the memories grown hard to hold? Come and let me hold you close to me. Don’t let our love be just a memory. Let me stay with you for just a while And help you change that frown into a smile. Time is kinder When you’re here with me. The mem’ries blind me so You’re all my heart can see. Come and let me take you by the hand – Please listen and just try to understand – Love like ours will never ever die – So, brush away the tear there in your eye.

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

An Ode To A Friend

We met in 8th grade...We became great friends and
Years later,

She Dared Me To Write my First Poem January 21, 1948...we were both 16...I on January 9th and she on January 20th same year.


"I bet you can't write the second verse to this poem!" she said to me in sassy manner...

She shoves a note book page to me with a scribble in her handwriting.

The title was "I Love To Dance!"

How absurd I thought, after all, I was a "singer!"


Without hesitation I took the paper and began to write..."I'd love to be held close in your arms where only I could share all your charms..." 

I followed with a few more line of "poetic bliss", to my thinking, and her respone was..."How did you do that?"

I replied, hands on hips, "Well you wrote the first so I wrote the second!"

Eloise replied in evident astonishment, "Girl, mine was from a song sheet!"
We fell out laughing as any 16 year olds would do.

Of course, I've written thousands of poems since then and I often say, "It's like breathing to me!".

My friend Eloise will be laid to rest tomorrow, March 16, 2013...Such a sad song for me. We stayed in touch over the years and often still laughed about that dare for me to write a second verse...Who knew?!

Cynthia
My heart is filled with the sorrow of Eloise's demise
Yet I sing still

Till last Magnolia blooms

Coffee bean scent still fills the air with each new sunrise in our log cabin My arms around me embrace the winds of Winter gone Every sky-night windowpanes glow in silent mist Lunar limbs stream through bedroom blinds reflecting shadows on empty sheets< Star clusters shine 'bove velvet shores sand-wish away from our bare toes Another year,another month,another thought I can't freeze time or make a clone First magnolia blooms on a bare branch Buzzing bees extract nectar from moist corolla Coloured wings flutter on melting icicles Sunbirds return with a sweet song But what is a song without a symphony What is music with no slow dance His hand-pressed petal still mark the chapter between stained pages The dusty shelves recall my mind recall my heart,recall my soul For the last time these eyes would linger before leaves curl,before buds wither before moons move on,and I let go.

girl with the diamond eyes

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 


but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes


this girl is more beautiful than anything
she is my perfect vision of life
she means everything to me

shes my angel and my dream
but at times she can be 
the devil to me

we are crazy in desire
we fit together well 
shes crazy 
and im crazy for her

shes bad 
and ill be bad for her

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 


but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes


yea my girl
with the diamond eyes

she makes me feel crazy
sometimes
but i dont mine as long as i can call
that girl with the diamond eyes mine

i pray they always shine

A Folk Song from India

BACKGROUND DETAILS ARE GIVEN ON MY BLOG POSTED TODAY
'Folk Songs Themes Are Same In Every Language'

A Folk Song from India

O my Sakhi,* bring the Dholak*,      we would sing a song,
O friend, my love is coming,	                 from a far-off city,
While bringing the Dholak,*         bring also the   Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and        we would dance  together.


The Jhoola*  is ready,		       on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak, 	we would swing high touching the sky,
O my friend, bring the Dholak*,  we would sing a song together,
O Sakhi* my love is coming,	                         from a far-off city,


O my friend push the swing,                            so high in the sky,
I may see my Sasuma*,                  leaving the house for a while,
The swing is ready,			      on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak,    we would swing high touching the sky,


O my friend please push the swing,                  so high in the sky,
That I may see, my Nanda,*     also leaving the house for a while,
O Sakhi,  please, increase the swinging,            so high in the sky,
That I may see my Dever* also,      leaving the house for a  while.

O my friend increase the swinging,                     so high in the air,
That I may see my Sasur*too, have to leave the house for a while, 
O my dear Sakhi,* please increase the swinging, so high this time,
That I may see the face of my love,        coming after a long while.

O my friend,            please push the swing   in such a way this time,
That my love may come to me,                     searching his dear wife. 
Then Sakhi increase the beat and sound of the Dholak,   so much so,
That everyone may feel that   we are singing the  song in full swing,
When you bring the Dholak,*                      bring also the Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and                        we would dance   together.

A New Day

I might sparkle in the night but I'm not the only star you might not see them in the sky it depends on where you are Am I the only light in your eyes that makes you smile when you cry if your favorite's what you say don't you blink it might fade away Only when we give everything we're truly ready for better things we invite ourselves off to drift the steam rises and our spirits lift Follow me, into sun sets be brave and strong with no regrets and when the sea takes the light we'll find a new day after the night there's still a new day after the night

mr right

Love gone ,
but love that is never meant to be ,
guys that i know are growing up in their minds too fast
chase after me.
how do you choose from the good and the bad , 
and how can i keep from being sad,
Mr.Right may never come along,
but I'll keep patient and sing my song for loving the wrong guy
could make  me wind up getting hurt.
So I'll sing my song and judge him for myself.

Black and White

You’ve maddened me to the core 
You singed me with your ferocious fire
We’re opposites… we’ll never integrate  
We can’t blend with each other…
Your love and I’m hate 
We’re contrary to each other…

So don’t even think about 
Getting us back together 
Because without a doubt, 
We don’t click with each other…

So let us go our own way…

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be deleted from my mind…

I’m not the one that should pay the price
You act as if you’re an angel from heaven
But, you’re a fiend…a devil from hell...who needs your advice?
Could someone unchain me from this prison?

So let us prepare for that day…

Fear and bewilderment build inside of our minds
Taking over us…we’re wasting valuable time
Terror and wrath injects into our veins…time starts to unwind 
I’m regaining my glory…this moment feels so sublime  

You think you’re innocent?
I can sense your guilt…bleeding through you
Do you live to feed me anguish? 
Don’t deny it…you crafty demon…no wonder I feel blue

Let’s get ready for battle…
I’ll watch you decay…
IT’S PAY BACK TIME . . .
Taste my fury and my agony 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be defeated…

I scream before nightfall
I close my eyes to kiss my demise
I want to disappear 
Scratch away my desolation
Wipe away my tears…
Spewing out of my eyes…like a waterfall
Tonight, there will be dismay
There will be suffering 
After sundown…
Failure and glory will expose like stars in the midnight sky
Who will earn the crown? 
No one knows in silent wars – who can reveal the light in goodbye
  
Why are we black and white?
Are you too afraid to know the reason why? 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to suffer alone…

Radha's Song- A folk Song of India 1/2

Prelude

This folk song is based on the childhood incidents of  8-10 years old Krishna, who use to
please everyone of Gukul village by his loving playfulness.  Gokul is the place where the
divine Krishna was brought up by his foster mother Yashoda about 5000 years back.  

Radha’s  Song-   A folk Song of India  1/2

When the golden rays of Sun peeped,
From behind the hanging dark clouds,
My mind bloomed touching the rays,
As flowers bloom seeing the Sunshine,

O my friend, I came to Punghat*,
To collect water from the   river,
And was about   to dip and fill it,  
In my empty earthen, Gagariya*,

Suddenly   Krishna,*    appeared   there, 
From where,   I do not know,      Sakhi*,
My Gagariaya*,  slipped from my hand,
Even my Chunariaya* also drifted away,

Now, how to go home tell me, my friend,
Without,         the water pot and     water,
From where,     I can get my Chunariaya*,
To cover myself,       before I reach home.

Such  is the magic of Krishna &  his  flute,
They enchants our  mind & heart,    Sakhi,
O, even  I hear,     the melodies of his flute,
When he is nowhere, around me, O Sakhi,

You   also   feel,         as   I  feel,  for  our  dear  Krishna,
Suffering as I suffer, still smiling in our hearts my friend,
Does the melodies,                of his ever enchanting flute,
Lives in your mind and heart,   like me,              O, Sakhi.

Clarifications:
*Radha.   Radha was the childhood friend and was one of the most beloved Gopi of Lord
Krishna. She was the   beauty, power and aura create the ethics of love. None of the
scriptures consists of the power to verbalize her beauty, for it is clear enough that when
beauty of Sri Krishna makes several hearts leave their boundaries, her beauty is so
mesmerizing that it makes Him loose consciousness.
*Krishna.   Krishna is often depicted as an infant or young boy playing a flute as in the
Bhagavata Purana  or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad
Gita. The stories of Krishna appear across a broad spectrum of Hindu philosophical and
theological traditions.] 
*Gagariya. The earthen pot used still in Indian villages to collect water from river, pond
or wells.
* Chunariya.  A long strip of cloth to cover the beauty of a woman. It normally hangs on
the bosom to cover them.
Punghat.  Is the word used for a place from where water can be collected by village women
of India.
*Sakhi. Hindi word means female friend

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Christmas Teddy Bear, On CD

Darling, what I want for Christmas, is you to be my teddy bear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, a song and dance to share,
Some hugs and kisses between us, a warm and listening ear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, the charm of Christmas cheer,

Yes, what I want for Christmas, is you to be my teddy bear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, in tender loving care,
Some hugs and kisses between us, a song and dance to share,
Some hugs and kisses between us, as I hold you near,

For love to be with us, throughout our Christmas years,

Some hugs and kisses between us, the charm of Christmas cheer,
Some hugs and kisses between us, the warmth of Christmas dear,

Enduring love to be with us, throughout our Christmas years,

Some hugs and kisses between us, some hugs and kisses between us,
Some hugs and kisses between us, "Won't you be my teddy bear!!"

Forever Changed

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where over halfway home
When we got the call from our baby sister

Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it in time

Our Family & Friends were weeping 
By the time we got to his side
We knew our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters climbed in his bed 
We laid down beside him 
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed

A laugh away from a tear

You don't love me anymore, that's the song my heart is singing,
You're not here, I am a laugh away from a tear.
I can't trust anymore, broken promises.
Do you really know how to love, do you know what love is.
Do you not see that I am just a laugh away from a tear.
You don't want me anymore, do you see the pain you are
bringing to my life, why I can't sleep at night.
Even though it pains me so, I still want you in my life..
I can't live without yyou, it's hard for me too..
a laugh away from a tear..
You don't love me anymore, that is the song I am now singing.
This is how I feel without you here, my soul is crying,
a laugh away from a tear...
how I feel without you.

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

A Moment In Time

 I awoke to the song of the robin
 Calling out my name
 I felt the rays of sunshine
 Beating on my chest

 I thought I had forgotten that feeling
 That you gave to me last night
 I bask here in the memories
 Thinking of love songs and you

 I don't know the meaning
 I don't really care
 I don't want this feeling
 To ever disappear

 So if you please my darling
 Listen to my songs
 They come from lonely heart strings
 Hoping you will play along

A Simple Kiss

A simple kiss will tell if you might love me.
A simple kiss will tell how much I care.
Yes, our lips will reveal 
Exactly how we feel;
So, kiss me…if you dare.

A simple kiss…it’s so very easy,
A simple kiss that only two can share;
But that kiss may be a chance
To find life’s true romance;
So, kiss me…kiss me… if you dare.

My heart began to race
When first I saw your face,
A face I had to dream to see;

Compelled to take this chance,
I dared to ask you for this dance,
And now, you're here... with me.

A simple kiss will tell if we might fall in love.
Surely, you have a kiss to share.
If you ever hoped for a chance
To find your life’s true romance,
Then, kiss me…Please kiss me… 
Kiss me…if you dare.

When i am alone

When I am alone, I sing a song
A song when we met
A song when you laugh
A song when you smile
A song when you said, I love you


When I see you at first, I feel
Like a princess in my dream 
You walked into my heart deeply
Touched my face softly 
Whisper, your mine eagerly   
We will decide mutually 
Everything will be fine seriously 
Since am waiting that day to come anxiously 
Tears, all along bitterly 
Still am singing that song happily!
Yes! when i am alone, i sing a song

She is Everything I Need to Know

She is my life and love and everything I need to know.
She is my strength and health whenever I am sick and slow.
her light sticks to my heart all day long: she shuns my shadow.
Comfort springs from her arms: she is my pleasant pillow.

A lovely lady, so bright, bold and beautiful.
A priceless princess, so cute, cool and colorful.
She is the sweetest song in my mouth, I can’t stop to sing.
She is my dearest dream, a courteous queen for a kind king!

She is an immortal image, a perfect painting… an alluring art.
She is every blessed blood flowing through my humble heart.
She soothes my soul and spirit with her cheerful charms.
She takes me to a wonderful world whenever I’m in her arms.

A darling dame whose sensual smiles rock my ribs.
She tames my heart and head …with her tender tease.
Her fine face and figure takes me to a sensual space;
She has got a pleasant picture that old age can never deface.

She is the smile I need to make me go the extra mile;
the unsinkable ship that can sail me safely on the Nile.
She is my hope  whenever it seems my life is wearing away
She is a home-maker with a radiant role to perfectly play.

She is an immortal image, a perfect painting…an alluring art.
She is every blessed blood flowing through my humble heart.
She is a passionate poet, with terrific theme, thrust and tone.
She has got rhymes and rhapsodies that thrill me on my throne!

She is a dazzling damsel: a sweet angel sent from above.
She is the reason I am singing this song of life and love.
She is a trailblazing tale, only a wise man can truly tell;
She is that flawless flower for whom I finally fell!

She is my sun at noon and the shining star in my sky at night.
She is in every picture I see, whenever I look left and right.
She is a sweet story without end because words are not enough...
cool, calm and careful but sometimes she appears to be tough.

She is an immortal image, a perfect painting… an alluring art.
She is every blessed blood flowing through my humble heart.
She is lovely, lively and laudable; faithful and full of fun.
She is every thing I need to know, … ‘Is she the one?’

the love we had seemed so far away

i look to stars and wishes flew through space never to be heard again
fun to friends hearts do meld and break facing until time ends
this loop that plays and beats that syncopate become but a gem
pleasure a chest opened in surprise feeling no need to defend
galaxies away lonely planets  please keep me in mind
 distance could grow something fond or lost between the lines
gps my love you can see  its still where I  left it behind
thoughts fade away with life love lives forever in my rhyme

Im sorry, I wanted more,with  all this space between
disconnected and I still look to that day
we talked on the phone, our separate homes
the love we had seemed so far away

without air i couldnt breathe squeezed until I'm passing by
no water flow my skin would dry and I return to the sky
sunny days would blacken out, attracting need for desperate lies
to make up for the beauty lost from death slowly closing my eyes
that fire once sparking motion snuffed in huffs slipping away
dwifting I sway shaky grounds where once I sat easily and stay
upon my feet I still float drowning out all thoughts that stray
Tho these ends can come swift its worse to miss and hear you say

Im sorry, I wanted more,with  all this space between
disconnected and I still look to that day
we talked on the phone, our separate homes
the love we had seemed so far away

down the road,flying free, I ride the wave and hope for your return
through several seas and cloudy peaks, storms of sand, I will not turn
helpless to fate and future events, nothing prevents something to learn
  sights may not sore, nothing much looking more, isn't my concern
I hope the best and happyness is true to bless you, not just in dreams
we can meet when we sleep discussing life while sleeping seems
thanks for trying Im not exactly dying, banes of  sentient beings
real enough moving on is rough, i'll love you forever, writting my means

I Don't Want To Know




If our story has an ending...I don't want to know... I shall put my hands up to my eyes, and turn my head away If goodbye words must be written, I don't want the world to know Please don't spread the word......If you care at all....what the ending said I cannot bear to know...... Let's pretend instead ..... I cannot bear to know Was I a fool to think you loved me before the ink was dry?... Was it just my fantasy........? What I always thought was meant forever...did it come with a goodbye? Was I blinded by the moonlight, and dazzled by a lie? Were we writing different stories, in our different worlds apart? Were you ripping empty pages, while I filled my own with heart? Was I a fool to let stars blind me, not to read between the lines? Was I lost in the dark........from the very start? Let us turn to chapter one again, and start it all again We can skip the end..........We'll begin again...we'll begin when love was new Where the pages lie unwritten, and the words are yet unsaid If goodbye words must be written, I don't want the world to know Please don't spread the word......If you care at all.....what the ending said If our story has an ending.....let us put it on the shelf If our story has an ending.....please keep it to yourself I can't bear to know......let's pretend instead ..... pretend it isn't so If our story has an ending...I don't want to know... I shall put my hands up to my eyes, and turn my head away

Music and Memories

When music sounds, 
all that I was I am
I give my Spirit to the flood of song

O even wings of music, bear my soul!
Bathe me in pure delight, and make me strong.

Music I heard with you 
was more than music, 
I seem to hear those songs again
waking thoughts, that have long slept
and make me smooth as balm and oil again.

My raptured spirit soars on high,
I keep such music in my brain
in faded eyes, that have long wept
a song of home, a deep celestial strain

which now I hear soaring
above my own breath,
and the round notes
flutter and tap, about the room

but the music is lost
and the words are gone;

and so the song breaks off, and I’m alone.

Softly sipping honey wine

Softly sipping honey wine

Sipping softly honey wine
I hear the rivers song
Lovely lady by my side
With love so sweet and strong
How the river sparkles
It’s on its way to meet the sea
As softly sipping honey wine
We sit here you and me.

Softly sipping honey wine
There’s only you and me
As Pelicans fly us by
This essence, endlessly
Seeps in, as a boat goes by
And trees dance in the breeze
Softly sipping honey wine
We sit here hearts at ease.

Softly sipping honey wine
I know I love you so
No one, my love, could ever love this true
Softly sipping honey wine
I feel loves tender glow
As I look at you, and know you love me too.

Softly sipping honey wine
The two of us together
River reflects the somber skies
They’ll soon be rainy weather
Here in this cosy chalet
Telling you that I love you
Softly sipping honey wine
And sharing love so true

A Love Song for the Universe

A love song for the universe
(If all would sing) could travel high,
Its notes of harmony traverse
the paths of stars beyond the sky!

And if all "feeling" souls could hear
A love song for the universe,
There'd be an end to hate and fear,
So join and sing this simple verse. . .

Whose strains sung strongly could immerse
All worlds in peace, sweet melody,
A love song for the universe.
Why can't it be sung easily?

And with eternal hope will cling
All spirits who need not rehearse
What all of us so need to sing,
A love song for the universe!

Sapphire Star

Among the stars she searched for one
to be her friend on distant dome;
her thoughts to lay and whispered gnome,
her childhood tales and scopes undone.

Among the million bright sparkles,
she chose one that kindly signaled,
her lone thoughts to him syllabled
mind's endless lines and traced circles.

And in the endless astral fire
she saw his friendly blink to smile
similitude of a Greek isle,
it was the sparkling of sapphire.

A song ascends from the pine woods
to meet the smiling star of blue
and is their solitude untrue,
unsolved of questions understood.

And then she slept on distant fare,
along the bless of blue sapphire,
the tunes of a Greek ancient lyre,
accompanied their dreams in air.

And while she slept the sapphire weaved 
blankets of light she softly held
the lyre star song dreaming she spelled,
and then for nothing else she grieved.

Song Within Me

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

I want to learn about my God
about his love for you 
his love for me
about his mercy and grace
I want to see his face on the day of days

oh, I know that it is  true
I know there's a song bagging to be free
living within me. 
I want to sing his praises  
I want to sing his name so all may know Jesus. God of Gods, King of Kings shine 
your love, your light, your grace upon me.

God the father, you sent only son to help us find way back to your loving grace 
How beautiful your way, guiding us taday 
Loving us the the way you do

Oh, how I long to know you, to see your holy face, your love and grace for the 
children you create how merciful your ways

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

**chorus** 
Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 


Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 

*chorus*

I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night
Ooh…ohh…

*Chorus* 

Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 

*chorus*

Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

It's Not Over

Don’t say it’s all over (cause it’s not)
“Sorry” won’t cover it…so don’t go on your knees and pray for my forgiveness 
Oh baby…don’t listen to the commotion…I’m done taking cover (it’s all for naught)
I’m plummeting in slow motion…into the remorseful pit…I’m plummeting in my nightmare’s abyss

I want to carry you through the night… 
I’m swimming in the ocean of my tears… 
My sodden wings lost its ability of flight…
You've been swimming in your distress for years… 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

I want to remind you to fight the good fight…
My misery pools are brewing inside of my head…
I’m backing away from the light & exploring the night… 
You’re giving in to sleep and I’m wide awake on my bed 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

Please don’t tell me…oh, don’t tell me…darling!
You’re giving up today… (I beg you to stay, despite your inner pain) 
I’m scared I might erupt – it could be quite startling!
Someday, things will change for the better… (Don’t turn the wrong lane)
I’m waiting for that day to arrive – perhaps it will wash away our dismay…

I promise you a tranquil reality 
I want to stray with you tonight 
I still have hope that He’ll set us free
I was wondering if you could stay the night
Maybe the Lord could grant us 
Pure, incredible delight 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we've plunged into our own pit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to gather…

A WONDERFUL WORLD

A WONDERFUL WORLD
One of my favorite songs whenever it's sung, 
"What a Wonderful World" is right on my tongue.
The melody's fine and the lyrics are great
but other thoughts sometime get to me 
and make my heart ache.

Louie Armstrong sings it best.
He's way ahead of all the rest.
But is the world really such a wonder?
It makes you stop and then 
ponder.

They quickly say the world is warming 
but we can't say it was without warning.
Climate change affects the weather
And that doesn't make things better.

For the trees of green and red roses too
may not bloom as Louie sings it to you.
We'll have droughts and floods
and skies not so blue.

The clouds of white are not so bright 
as storms brew over the lands. 
And the shaking of hands
seem to be more of fright
as the winds stir up the desert sands.

We have "Arab Springs" and children are shot
and babies will cry, "please forget me not."
As the world seems to ache
from these things we forsake 
for the love that we seem to have forgot. 

The world is quite full of 6.5 billion
and the people starving are 
more than 6 million.  
Can that make it a wonderful world?

The friends who shake hands and say,
"How do you do?"  
are they really saying, "I love you?"
The song says so but we really don't know
if they truly mean it or it's just for show.

But when we consider all things 
about how the world really sings
and always ends up with a smile,
we know somehow the world will get by  
as  long  as we give it a real try.

The world has been here for such a long time
and somehow has survived no matter what sign 
through storms, earthquakes and more.
People live on regardless of any war
or disease that is other than benign.

Because no matter what dread 
it can really be said
it is still a wonderful world.
And Louie is right as he sings with delight 
of rainbows and bright stars in the night.

The message of the song is very profound 
and with a little patience the world will rebound.
So even if it seems so imperiled,
indeed, it is still a wonderful world.

sexy mood

tonight i woke up in a sexy mood
and i wanted to make love to you 
disadvantaged by your absence all i could do
was play my favorite song and think of you
i got down on my knees and prayed to God
while i sing these lyrics let me make love
and while i was kneeling i sang with my heart
i don't know but i must believe in what i had done
deep down in my soul i know she was the one
a breif moment in time just long enough
to put us together and in God we trust
i wish i could be with you but my life must go on
i'll keep you in my memory as i play my favorite song
and when i'm in my sexy mood and i need to be with you
i'll get down on my knees again and i'll make love to you

Dream Boy

My favorite verse from THE song of my youth
Hit song of 1969 by the Carpenters:

(They Long To Be) Close To You
    (middle stanza of the song)

"On the day that you were born

the angels got together and decided

to create a dream come true

so they sprinkled moon dust in your hair

of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue."

Dream Boy

To fall for him I needed just one look
and after that, he had me on his hook -
a fact which I’m not sure he even knew!
Dream boy with hair of gold and eyes of blue.

I lived for those church dances in his town.
I’d see him there but always feel let down.
Girls followed him around. What could I do?
Dream boy with hair of gold and eyes of blue.

Not being in his orbit or his school,
I longed for him and simply played the fool.
The fantasy for me would not come true!
Dream boy with hair of gold and eyes of blue.

Dedicated to Chris Frogley, wherever now he may be.

Pricked

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm 
through with the tears, you couldn't pay me all your money to make up for those 
years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

Unfinished

It's all the seasons,
All the seasons in my world;
Storming all around.

All these thoughts may fill my mind,
But my time is memories.

It might drive me crazy,
Fulfilling all those needs.
And all the seeds of "maybe"
Won't be planted with my greed. 

And you'll thank me one day.
Three birds, they told me so:
"Learn from the thorns in your side,
Roses always bloom too slow". 

And the room yells "Maybe"!
Surely I'd love to go.
But riding on the winds of maybe,
Surely I'll never know....

My Morning Dew

If I had luck with a guitar
I would pluck you a gentle tune 
If I had been blessed with a soothing voice
I would play you the sweetest melody

I would carve you an effigy of love
If my hands were humbled with the Skillman ship of a sculptor
I would your statue place at the centre of my town
With the sweetest caption known to the statue race on it

I would with the brightest colours, to reflect your charming smile,
Paint a portrait of your beautiful face
If the gods had favoured me with a painter’s talent
I would hang your Mona-Lisa like portrait in all the museums in the world

I would dare the fires of Mordor
Just to mold you the most glistening pieces of jewelry
The purest of a golden ring with the biggest diamond
A Hollywood girl would forever dream of I would make you

Or I would bring you the freshest roses
The smelliest of their kind
If only I had enough to have my own orchard
I would grow you pink and red roses in my back yard

I would stuck you a pile of riches in your pillow case
Then I would surprise you to open it when you wake
That would be if I had a good fortune
To spoil my honey dew with abundant life

But I am a frog with a guitar
My hands are too weak for a sculptor
A blind man would outshine me at a game of paint and brush
The fires of Mordor, ho! I wish the Hollywood supermodels would envy your golden ring
But I would never muster enough bravely to dare the ever blazing flames
I would indeed collect the sweetest pink and red roses
But I lack even my own daily bread to own an orchard
That goes even for the fortune I wish I would surprise and spoil you with

I however have muse’s abundant gifts in my quill
Thus with it I scribble you this poem
To soothe you my honey
To pluck you that tune from my virtual guitar
To carve you the effigy of love
And paint you the Mona Lisa of your own
To endow me with the courage to dare the furnaces of Mordor
And bask in the fountains full of rose’s red and pink
For in my virtual world I have all the riches to spoil you with
And with muse’s gift I with this quill
Scroll you this piece my morning dew

A Used Heart Playing The Blues

This instrument called my heart That used to play love songs just for you Is now old,worn and tattered Barely even able to carry a tune Beautiful love songs it used to play Have now been turned to blues From a woman I used to love That has torn my heart in two Melodies that would always flow From a heart that was always so true Now broken it hurts to even play From a heart that's been so abused Through loneliness a heart gets worn Without all the love it was so used to Leaving beautiful memories that are now forlorn Almost unable to even play the blues A sad song will still play on Through these words that I call the blues From a heart that used to play love songs With all my heart,that were just for you

No Air

A Girl and a boy both go to music school.
The boy and girl get an audition for a Record Label. 
The both go to the audition and both of them get the chance to go and record there own album. 
The audience loved them and all the judges voted for them both to win the audition. 
They both go back to there homes in the ghettos of Brooklyn New York City.  
The boy was warming up for the Record Label by singing. The girl was also doing the same. 
They both take off at the same time from there houses. 
They both get on the same train and ride together. 
They both see one another and walk up to each other and shaking hands and nodding at each other as a signal to sing in the train in front of everyone. 
The boy pulls out a stereo out of his back pack and turns a a song and they begone to sing while all the people on the train looking at them and smiling. even all the gansters and emo's were looking with an aww. 
The boy and girl got so into singing together on the train that they got really close and personal, making it look like they were singing to each other. 
They touched each other and almost looked like they were about to kiss. 
The train stopped and they both stopped singing to each other. 
They both got off without saying anything to each other and went there own way's. 
The boy met up with his boys and went to the ally to smoke some weed before the recording starts, and the girl went off with her girls to do a touch up on her nails. 
Again they start walking to the studio at the same exact time and showing up there at the same time. 
The girl gets to the booth first and than comes the boy right behind her. 
Than the boy says, "wait am i singing with her"? and the answer was "yes".
The girl was already in the singing booth and the boy and his friends came and started laughing at her in the booth. 
The boy got mad and went into the booth to show his boys that she is hella good at singing. 
The both stand right next to each other and being hearing a melody comes out from the song No Air, by Chris Brown and Jordan Sparks. 
The girl started singing first and the boy followed right after her. 
The boys friends had there jaws dropped by the amazing voice that they both make together. 
The DJ had a smile on his face and everyone was stunned by the way they sound together. 
They both got really into it and started do what they did in the train. 
By the end of the song people were crying of what beauty they just heard.

I'm In Love with a Memory

I'm in love with a memory
and you love just the thought of me
the idea of a woman by you
who can hear your thoughts.

I'm in love with the touch of your skin
and you ask what I think of your kin
freeze the fire that burns inside
fasting daily away from  me.

What is it, baby, 
that keeps you away?
What is it, darling,
that will set you free?

I've been praying hard for you
turn my flames into songs for you,
I've been hoping you'll wake up soon
see the tears i have cried for you.

What is it, baby, 
that keeps you away?
What is it, darling,
that will set you free?

I'm in love with the thought of you
making love at the thought of me,
waking up just to feel my skin
even though you don't like my kin.

I want you, baby, 
why can't you now see?
how thirsty I've grown,
away from you?

I am through playing hide and seek,
every day I keep growing weak,
I yearn daily for your embrace
but your coldness is my disgrace.

I love you, baby,
adore you darling
I cannot leave you
I cannot live

I'm in love with a memory...

Song Cry

A song of a blind bird,
stale and cry.
hymn of a song in hormony to fly by,
is sure to set  feet.

Note by dexter fold arms to sheeps,
foil and cope,
with the mild do throttles to thirst,
seminary.

like symantec of dirtection,
as the heaven snips to the moon rites of memories,
learning time motion of tears,
my heart flirts with literature ,
like hope to a good well.

note of notice,
just luck of verbal communication,
to conscience of intelligence of just words,
and tone turn to lust,
and lust turn to light moods,
where did i leave my capitavite?
in this room.

like a flower to dawn,
we rise together, 
morning to sweep of shore,
like a pastor store in barrels, 
for the fruit of yesterday to pour,
for todays taste ,
of years to past,
of course it was a good year.

like tinkle bell to a warm  berry,
my wish is sit next to you.
to reach is to bring towards,
 to be patient is to remain of stone.

i'm pasting my self with this meal.
to bring friendship to a new conclusion.
will you sit eat with me and bring in the New Year.
or will be know as our anniversary a reason to write.
I mean a reason to continue to write was left to be written!!!

From The Frozen Silence



Cry to me oh frozen fortress your darkened days without appeal have found no end Oh cry my lonesome flower dove for memories held through fleeting wind I call on spring my warming bath of crystal dawn and colored strands Oh play my song in velvet hymn's goes Winters cry with joyous tears This frozen Winter no longer cries and sultry love within me lies _______________________ Contest

LOVE ISN'T LOVE TILL YOU GIVE IT AWAY

There is a gift of love you cannot buy
That is, very rare and very true,
It’s a gift of love you, can give to me
It’s like having a wonderful guy, just like you
The many things you can do for me,
In your kind and loving ways,
You can give me months of happiness;
That no one, but, you can take away.

Nothing can be more beautiful
Than thoughts I have in you
The thoughts I’ll treasure forever,
To me, you, are someone special,
Yes you, and only you will be.

Someday your team may win the game,
And someday, I may win you, someday.
But we all have to try, even me;
Yes we must try, to win each others love.
Cause a bell is no bell, till you ring it
A song is no song till you sing it,
And, love in your heart wasn’t put there to stay;
Love isn’t love till you, give it away.

My Love my Wife

My Love my wife my life
Lie in my arms
and rest your head
on my chest
listen to my heartbeat
to the song that I sing
my song a river of life
that flows out to you....

The loveliest of all women
you are my out-flowing
my out-pouring
my well my spring
and in you
my thirst is all quenched
for when you speak
its all sweet melody
A gold bowl full of incense
And in our moments
your fragrance fills the room
Dropping sweetness
Like a honeycomb

You are a living epistle
A book written only for me
to read and understand
and behold you
in your purest form
Wrapped with light
as with a wedding gown
Dressed up in sunshine
your beauty overwhelms me
For yours is all goodness
and truly yours is an outraying
of all the good things in life 

Page by page
and line upon line
Mysteries are unravelled
And secrets unveiled
As we behold each other
both naked and unashamed
bone of my bone
and flesh of my flesh
My love my wife my life

Welcome to the Planet

Welcome to the planet
Wake me when it’s over
The dreamer’s always tempted
To come around and show her

And I just keep wastin my time
On girls that won’t love, me, like their wine
And it’s just too easy to blame
The rock and the system for causing my pain
And I just want you to know that I’m through
With being alone, when I’m with you 
And when you mask the truth with your lies
It just won’t get any better for the rest of your guys

And when you fall asleep
The night covers your tears
And the darkness sees you weeping
Cause your conscious can’t be cleared
This year you’re feeling colder
Your heart’s a little older
You haven’t found your soul mate
And now you think you’re too late

But one look inside of my eyes
Gives you the hope that there’s a guy
Who can make you feel happy and sad
And it’ll be worth it to feel that again

I Want

I want to sing you
I want to write you
I want to watch you
And describe you

I would like to compose you
You, my ninth symphony
To put you on a stave
To play your melody

I want to sculpt you
Without engraving too much
Hardly anything to change
Some details to fix

I want to photograph you
Under different lights
To whip with the flash
All those artifices that are hiding you

I want to break your records
Go through your body's limits
Jump higher, run further
When man an athlete is one

I could go on with other arts
But none of them seem good enough to define you
So I'll go on in which my words are the finest
For you, I'll never stop writing

World of Love

From wrong to right,
From day to night,
It comes to light,
Everything comes in cycles,

The cold front days,
The lonely waves,
Are only lonely in candlelight.

The time for understanding,
beyond the moment here,
the cycle is returning,
Try to listen it will clear,
Through the cycle, and the breathing,
What was leaving, will come near,
Only time will disappear.

From young to old,
From hot to cold,
It will unfold
Into a cycle of consequence.

The time for understanding,
beyond the moment here,
the cycle is returning,
Try to listen it will clear,
Through the cycle, and the breathing,
What was leaving, will come near,
Only time will disappear.

The best defeats,
Are bittersweet,
Are incomplete,
All in the cycle of circumstance,
All in the wonderful,
Wonderful  world of love
Let it come, let it come,
To the wonderful, wonderful
World of love,
The chance for love,
Let it come.
Wonderful, wonderful
World of love,
World of love,
World of love.
World of love.
Let it come.

Hey, Pete Seeger!

FREEDOM SONG

Do you know the path to freedom,
do you know the road to peace,
do you know the value of truth and wisdom -
let’s bind our hands across the land.

Do you know how to love your brother,
do you know how to understand,
do you realize that you live only once -
let’s fill the world with love and joy.

The world is in a state of sorrow,
poverty, wars and hate abound;
let us stop all of these philosophizing,
let’s sing the song of peace instead.

The world is in a state of sorrow,
poverty, wars and hate abound;

Mermaid's Song

" Mermaids' Song " In a time & a land of coconuts & sand~ Were two whose love against odds did stand~ Windswept & with seas troubled at times~ Their love only to them seemed such the rime~ She was bold & brave so bound to be free~ He surely did love her as he sailed those seas~ Together & as one they so ventured wildly forth~ Oft times to warm south somedays cold north~ They laughed with the sun & danced to the moon~ All those around given great cause to swoon~ This then fer certain was love meant to be~ So these two together set sails with great glee~ Now there did come to him & as well to her~ A time not of pleasure but which to endure~ Winds did so calm & waves did abate~ Twas not by choice did then flow in such fate~ Yet this day may be heard in calms well offshore~ A song softly sung by those mermaids of yore~ Of these two spirits so then torn asunder~ Whose parting gave cause & reason to wonder~ Listen well up & carefully ye all~ Lest not ye come to same sort of fall~ Secret being in open mind & true heart~ Thus then forever ye'll not be set apart~ SeaWolf ©

Butterfly

Her nature was gentle, and as soft as the rain
A butterfly so fragile, with procelin skin
Fragrant blossom, nectar sweet
Bathed in humbled innocence...
Entrapment came regaled in white 
With western charms, this wasp would sting
He picked this budding branch with false intent
His kisses spent, upon her dainty cheeks
So into bliss she flew, caught by wily arms
and promises of love, with no intent to keep
With fickle breath he stole her heart
And played the part without a thought, without a care
He was an actor upon this stage....the cage
a nuptial made as thin as air

He said farewell, with lies and smiles
To sail awhile, across the rolling seas
Leaving needles in her heart
Her frail wings pierced upon the day
And when those falsehoods sailed, her love impaled
While far away, he spent his charms in other arms

Her face would stare upon the tides
Her eyes would cry soliloquies
Her song would yearn...would he return?  
Her trust swept into waves...
And then a year or more would pass, 
The child she bore, stood by her side...
And still love lasts, and while she waits, the ocean breeze
would carry on,  those restless seas, the haunting song ....
Would carry on and on....she calls.........she calls his name...

With futile hopes to ease her pain
Her shame to learn the truth, and then to finally learn
Another shore......another bride!!
Another shore......another bed......to learn such truth...the final dread!
She cannot lift her head...the loss....the pain.....! OH! Hide thy face!
Oh! Such disgrace...an honor black with shame
What cannot be erased.......too much is dead!

Her death will free the fragile wings
Upon her knees, the final bend
By her own hand......her father's knife
Will take the life of Butterfly.                         BUTTERFLY!!      Butterfly!        ....butterfly!....

I Can't Say It Without You

I was your never ending composer
We spent many a nights, and many an hour together
But now you’re lost inside
And I can’t find my way, again.

( chorus )
Cause I can’t say it without you		
It hurts to be without the feeling		
Never knowing when it will return		
But I know that you would stay with me	
If you came back, again some day		
But till then I’ll wait till you appear.	

I really miss the way you make me feel
People said we were meant to be together
Why’d you leave me so unexpectedly
I hope you come back soon.

( Chorus )

It’s been two months since I’ve written you
All I’ve got to show is crumpled bits of paper
The passion and creativity is now gone
So come back home so I can work it out.

There is a song in my heart


There is a song in my heart
and I want to sing it for you in the misty night
No one will ever knows what I have written for you
because it has been written with my heart only for you
Let us be alone when I sing my song for you
and let the melody of my song echo in the sky
I want our world to sleep deep when I sing for you
then only my song will get into your heart softly
My nights are not enough to love you
nor my songs cannot be sung without you
I sing with my heart to tell you how much I love you
I sing with my soul to tell you how much I miss you
My song will wipe your tears away
and immerse my body into your arms for thirsting love
These feelings of loving song comes when I am only with you
and let my love song, sing in your living heart forever

A New Year Song

The garrish glares light now the sky
And upward turns the people's eye
In every heart a silent longing
On every saged heart a silent wish
For all things old must swiftly perish
And all embrace the year's new coming
And all be glad to sing
A love song to the king
A love song to the king
And all be glad to sing
To God who promised everything
And saved us on eagle's wing
And light gleams a thousand hopes
A thousand kisses bring
And marching feet conquer new the slopes
And happy children sing
The new year, the new year, another chance
To live, and love again, and laugh, and dance
And worship new the king
And worship now the king

A BALLAD

Unity of mind, body, and spirit the qualifier of love
Statuette 
Statue
The wedding vows

If you love somebody, let him know.
When life is short, why would you not explode?
Whispering in his ear about your heart,
he will assume it’s an inner voice.

If you love somebody, shout it to the world.
Share time with that person so he will know.
Tell him via intimate words.
Write him a love poem.

When life is short, why would you not be a bombshell?
Spread your wings like a butterfly you are beautiful.
Make him recognize what he has.
Humor his mind make him laugh.

When you love somebody, superimpose.
Take control of his soul.
Lay above all his meants. 
Create an ambiance he wants to be within.

If you love someone, find his passions.
Don’t allow negative stressors.
Time is of the essence.
Figurine - shape your bust all he wants is to be loved.

I COULD SEE

Look what you've done for me
you helped me find my song
You had the faith to believe
even though it has been so long 

Listen to this amazing melody
it was still right there all the time
Until your lyric touched my heart
I had no rhythm.. I was blind

You began to play your music
the voice within me moved in sync
I was reaching out to you girl
and in that moment I could see
In that moment I could see

My life's ballad was to be a duet
now I knew what had been wrong
For years I'd been singing solo
Yeah, I had needed you all along

Together we've got sweet harmony
oh girl, I just love the hard beat
Making music with you all night
when this song ends gonna hit repeat

So play me all your music now
let's groove we got chemistry
Our songs.. let's move together
let's explore how good we can be

You began to play your music
the voice within me moved in sync
I was reaching out to you girl
and in that moment I could see
In that moment I could see
I could see
I could see
I could see
I could see

Radhas Love Song 01


English version of the Radha’s Love Song   1/2  Prelude on page 2



Those swinging trees and birds flying in the sky,
Those green creepers and the lovely Gokul*  hills,
Amid which, we used to play and get lost,  
In listening and feeling your enchanting flutes and charms, O Krishna*,
The bank of Yamuna* and your playing of flutes, 
They all looks deserted without your magical tunes.  01


Everything of Gokul* have become tired, in waiting for you O, Krishna*, 
Although ages have passed, only my eyes are still not tired, 
While waiting for a glimpse of your enchanting looks, 
Please come and show me at least your face, O, Mohan*,
Now even the water streams, running from our eyes too, 
Are at the edge of getting dried, while showering the tears,
In waiting for you for such a long time, O Mohan. 02
 

The lamp of hope only,  is still burning, O Krishna
Ever since you left, all other supports have vanished in the air,
Still if you cannot come to Gokul*, 
Just do not come,
But please do not send anyone to console my suffering heart,
By giving me false assurances and 
The teachings of sacrifice and patience, O Krishna. 03


Please do not send anyone,   to make me understand,
That you cannot return to Gokul,
Leaving the affairs of your Kingdom, O Krishna,
These efforts would only break the barrier of my patience,
Bursting those feelings, which have accumulated 
In the reservoir of my love since ages,
And do not break my false hopes that you would come one day
As it the last and the only Hope of my life and living,
O Mohan, my most beloved sakha* and love, O Krishna. 04

Streetlight

Look in the rear view, now I've gotta clear view
Most beautiful landscape I've ever seen
and I've seen 'em around the world baby girl, better believe
No feeling like having you next to me.
I mean it respectfully; I hate the distance
When i'm on the road and you're not there-
I won't admit it; too often caught up in my pride-
but without you it just ain't the same ride.

There's something to be said when a man misses a woman
pushing the pain aside in stride like it's nothing
But something happens when that song comes on
and I hold you in my arms but I know that you're gone
Drawn to memories when we were one
soul; two-halves bound into a whole
being, united in a similar state of dreaming
You are me, I am you, baby feel what I'm feeling

I miss you, won't ever forget you
Every time is like the first time I met you
Truth be told, this never gets old
You are the one girl that i'll ever wanna hold
and mold into a goddess, now you're holy enough to control me
Only you can show me the light from a shadow so lonely
You know me. and I'm proud to say
This is one thing that I will never betray
 
Look in the rear view, now I've gotta clear view
Most beautiful landscape I've ever seen.
and I've seen 'em around the world baby girl, better believe
No feeling like having you next to me.
I mean it respectfully; I hate the distance
When i'm on the road and you're not there-
I won't admit it; too often caught up in my pride-
but without you it just ain't the same ride.
 
There's something to be said when a man misses a woman
Pushing the pain aside in stride like it's nothing
But something happens when that song comes on
and I hold you in my arms but I know that you're gone
I ride along until the night meets the dawn
and you're the streetlight that leads me beyond
In wonder, I'm still under your spell
Keep driving, but I'll never say farewell

The Moon

Moonlit skies light up my face 
as I sit here in this place 
surrounded by the music of the creatures of the night

The crickets chirp their peaceful song
the river runs quietly along 
as if they are in a dance together with themselves.

The moon seems to hold my dreams
within itself or so it seems,
until I see the stars brighten and light up in the night sky.

Gazing into them I am filled with wonder
hearing a sound like roaring thunder
Yet no clouds block my view in this glorious night.

But yet a voice comes so sweet and tender
and propels me willingly to surrender
to the dreams and hopes that feel my heart and mind.

It's almost like sunshine springing out through rain
it takes away all of life's pain
and makes dreaming a dream something real.

To feel your heart come alive within you
to know that there is a big breakthrough
in all that you ever dreamt your life could become. 

It's worth hanging your dreams on the moon,
to feel such warmth, like a well-played tune
strumming on the strings of the deepest part of your spirit. 

Like the flowers blooming in the meadow 
the dreams began to open and flow
and I begin to my own song that goes along with the night.

A reflection of light from the moon on my face 
made me think of dreams and embrace
the love that is within a voice, a song, a night.

Little Girl Lost

We once had a song that in the beginning had so much meaning. Every word had me beaming. Now the song has no significance, I really believed what you said was true. I believed in us, I believed in you. How can these lies come so at ease? Those lies kept me right where you needed me to be. I feel like everything was a lie to keep me by your side. Now I am second-guessing if you are really even the same guy. I fell in love with a fantasy and now I do not believe. My dreams forever shattered by the lies you muttered. I am hurt and you can care less about my pain, because you got what you wanted when you came. It took a lot for me to open up and trust you, you made that little girl in me come out to meet you. Now she feels betrayed, you never loved her as you proclaimed. How can you break my little girl heart? When I speak of this little girl, it was I from the start. How could you make my little girl die inside? When you promised never to make her cry, to hurt her and forever protect her. How can her protector be the one who puts her in harm’s way? Your lies are the source of my little girl pain, trusting in you is the hurt my little girl and me has gain. You once told us that your love would never change, but you have changed and your lies seem to stay the same. My little girl has seemed to run away, away from love and the games you chose to play. We once shared something that I once thought was everlasting. My little girl is lost and no longer laughing. Her curly eyelashes are wet from the tears you left. Her smiles are now frowns, no laughter not a peep nor a sound. She is out there searching for love that never found. My little girl is lost and I still feel her around. My love for my inner baby girl comes in surround. I need to kiss her on her cheek, because she just so sweet and she just need love whole-heartedly.

Please Help Me, Re-lyric

Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.
You're just so damn sexy,
That's why I'm hittin' on you.
You don't have to love me,
Some good sex will do.
Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.

Yes, you turned me on
When I saw you walk in...
The face of an Angel,
A body just made for Sin.
Now, I may be real horny,
But one thing is true:
What would satisfy me, Girl
Would be to satisfy You.

So please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You; 
And I hope that you're fallin'
In Lust with me too;
But if not, then please fake it,
Please don't leave me "blue"...
Please help me, I've fallen
In  Lust  with  You.

Just One Song

             Just One Song
During your moment of seductive fantasy
My glance was bathing in your little eyes
Through, I see a holy land apostasy
By this world where people use the deadeyes 
  
As the moon is starting to admire your body 
Developing from that faithful dress
Let the music sat you as the melody 
That wants to change you as an adulteress

Just one song to drop you on my mattress
Like an angel nude on the bed of eternal life
Just one kiss to taste your delicious sweetness
Like a baby thirsty of your gratifying breath of life

Let the piano cheers your extravagant glamor
Open your heart and adopt my gentle voice
The words will paint your soul with my color
Just one last song to convince your final choice

Come Inside

Your heavy heart is weary, worn
Bloody and bruised, it’s fiercely torn
To Loneliness, a vow you've sworn
To dwell in night without a morn
Come inside

To live and love, you've lost your will 
Of sorrow’s cup you've had your fill
Desire’s longing, quiet…still
Heart frozen by rejection’s chill
Come inside

Chorus
Come inside my chamber, feel the fire
Come inside my heart, dip in desire
Come inside my soul, devoid of brier
Come inside my mind, your pain retire

Refrain
Come
Come
Come inside my body, come inside
Come and dip inside my pleasure’s tide
Come inside my body, come inside
Come glide into heaven, come abide
Come
Come
Come…..I N S I D E

Yesterday

Yesterday is gone, too late for regrets
All memories of the past locked away
My hopes and fears joining them
Troubles I have had like most, happiness
Seemed to be just a dream from the past
So few of them have survived, once
Far from here I was carefree until you went
Away to war, the news came, lost in action 

Now I dwell in  the past with locked memories
It seems no point when I no longer can share them
Looks of love from others all around me
As if to taunt me, reminding me of you
Though it is a lovely day my heart weeps a single tear
They're one of many that never manages to fall
Here in my eyes they remain burning hot scalding me
To be with you once more just once to hold you
Stay my heart screams, do not go, do not leave me

Oh how can this be, such terrible pain rips at me
I hear a knock on the door and he is there saying 
Believe in me my love, I told you I would return
In your heart you knew I was alive, I am back safe
Yesterday is over, the war won and our life moves on

My dear , I don't know how shall I start
But my love for you was set before we met
I don't know how as it's deep in my heart
I believe that's crazy like Romeo's love for Juliet

Baby , my love for you is like a waterfall
I can't escape it but I must go down
I am addicted to your love , that's all
So don't hurt my heart and leave , It's a letdown

My pretty angel , I need you by my side
And from life , I wish nothing more
As you know that passion is my guide
And without you , nothing worth living for

Let's walk along the seashore till the dawn light
Holding hands , I wanna keep looking at your eyes
Baby , they are shinnig like the stars , so bright
With you , I feel I am flying up in the skies

Oh yeah , I feel I am flying up in the skies
I feel I am flying up in the skies

Paper Thin

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
For kicks is why I do it now.
You tell me to love but I never knew how.
Our feet hitting pavement,
We spent the day in sunny California with sun kissed skin.
I’m learning to forget and how to fade scars,
And you let me let myself down so hard.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
And now I just do it for smiles,
We’ll never see flower girls stumbling down aisles.
I’d lose my head just before that chance,
But if you want we can still have a first dance.
Cause I think I say things that I don’t mean,
Once upon a time you meant the world to me.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
But I’m trying to refrain,
To make this not all end up in vain.
Maybe I can learn to love like some people do,
And you can learn to love yourself a little too.
Or it is in all fairness to let this go?
I guess we can try but then we’ll never know.

Good Morning,My Love

Morning sings a song that's knowing
All the love that's in me flowing
Drifting through the mist that's rising
Two hearts beating,harmonizing

Thinking up a song of rapture
Tender words that calm and capture
All the things I feel for you
That we can sing the whole day through

When daylight breaks and you awaken
I'll fix the eggs and fry the bacon
Bringing you breakfast in bed
Recalling all the things you said

Whispering"good morning,love"
Raise the shades to the skies above
You stretch and flash me out a smile
Hold me for a little while

I always want to start my day
With your arms holding me this way
The luckiest girl alive is me
Your love has come to set me free!

Oh I get down...

Oh I get down,
I still know how,
To go downtown,
And get real loud.

Save another of those whisky shots for me,
And put another song on the box for me,
Rack 'em up - c'mon let's play some pool,
Flirt with the girls...
...and act real cool!

Cause we're gonna get down,
And go downtown,
Get real loud...
...'cause we still know how!

I shake it up,
It's never enough,
I play real rough,
And love it up.

Save another of those whisky shots for me,
And put another song on the box for me,
Rack 'em up - c'mon let's play some pool,
Flirt with the girls...
...and act real cool!

Cause we're gonna shake it up,
And play real rough,
Love it up...
...'cause its never enough!

Save another of those whisky shots for me....

Love and Hate

Love is symbolic 
Hate is diabolic 

Love always survives 
Where hate never thrives

Love shall succeed
But hate shall recede 

(Why can't you love me?
Because you hate me!)

Love will always prevail
Your hate will always fail

(Why you hate me so much?
There's no love left in you as such!)

I love you when you hate me
I hate you when you don't love me

(If you can not love me
You should never hate me)

Let's move on with this love and hate
For someday your hate shall retire & abate

(But still I love you so much my dear
Or is it because of my hate, you fear) 

And even if you don't love me
You will never hate me

(I hope)

The Morning Song

Among the morning dark
I hear her song like meadow lark
Wake by ring in whispers sung
Within my head, pass hours tune
At dusk, her touch, her warmth, her hug
As lips asunder lyrics song “Husband, I love you”


Details | Lyric | |

You Are the One

She lays in his arms
he asks her what's wrong
the silence you keep
and the smile you fake
I know that something's on your mind
She says i don't understand
how someone like you
could love me the way you do
and he says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

they sit down for dinner 
he says it's been so long since we've been together
and there's something that I have to say
he gets on one knee and pulls out a ring
I cant't imagine why you're here to this day
but I hope there is not coming our way
and she says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

the preacher speaks
God's words does he say
Faith has brought us to this day
they look in each others eyes
and only they can see

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

no one else was there for me
no one else stopped my heart form bleding
only you can make me feel this way
only you can find my true smile
among the hopeless and the broken
you are the one that saved me from it all

you are the one
that makes my heart beat  
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
I looked everywhere
for someone to save me
and finally
you are the one

thank everything 
In this beautiful world
That made for me
you were there for me
you are the one

Pretty Love

Pretty Love
Kind touches
Sugar Hello’s
Melodic kisses

Swift feet that run towards peace
Ears that hear that the innocent ones have been released
Eyes that see the goodness in increase
Arms that reach out to embrace and greet

Handsome hearts
Gorgeous souls
Two minds have met
That has made a whole

Lovely is their morning song
Kindness subverts all wrong
How long is long

Forever and a day

My Little Bird

I heard my little bird singing the breeze,
I heard her singing on a breath of air,
The air that slowly moves through forest trees,
The old, oak trees where initials declare,
Declarations made upon love’s high trapeze.

Old memories recalled again today,
Another day, another time, we knew,
I knew that bird song would echo my way,
The way a joyful song reminds of you,
The you that I hold dear in my heart to stay.

In memory of my little bird, Tash

RIP sweetheart!

Can't Be Friends

Before, while, and after I said goodbye
I couldn't help but sit there and cry.
I cried on and off for 7 hours and slept one
Woke up and cried again, I still wasn't even done.

Two more hours…wake up again.
Every so often a tear falls in the open.
I literally feel an aching pain in my chest
Thinking of how I lost you, wanting to forget.

I'm feeling sick and I still haven't ate.
I want you…my thoughts aren't straight.
Mane, almost every tweet...is about you
And almost every thought…is about who?

Someone who could have been playing me
Or showing me where my desires could lead.
I wanted to tell you everything, I wanted to say more,
There wasn't enough time and now my broken heart's feeling so sore.

I just wanna be alone and listen to this depressing song,
I can't get you out of my head... it hurts. Is that wrong?
I understand that I may be foolish wasting my time hurting over you.
But in all honesty my dear, I really wanted us to be something too.

A Wind-blown Song

A lyric drawn of passion’s longing, lit,
shall flow in spirit to thy avid mind;
faint apparitions swirl and bait thy wit
with drifting light, a joint rapport to find.

Soft silky ribbons braid a chiffon song,
of gloss and gold as bright as twilight star,
that soars on high on winds that sail along,
to carry forth a wish to lands afar.

Anticipation rising with dawn’s glow,
as wait, for now, is all that I can do.
Oh can, of windblown song, a kinship grow? 
and can that song of one now sing for two?

Of windblown song across a world so vast
I bid it sing an aria to last.

My Cell Phone Keeps Vibrate'n

Earlier this morning, while she was in the shower
I packed all my belongings; I knew I had an hour
Then I slipped out the back door, like the coward that I am
Now in my pants’ front pocket my cell phone is vibrate’n

My cell phone keeps vibrate’n, I feel it against my thigh
But I cannot answer it, because I know I’ll start to cry
My spirit has been broken; my heart’s been torn in two
I am driving to find a dead-zone where her calls can’t come through

I left a copy of the email I found the night before
Laying on her pillow, in the pieces that I tore
It spoke of the secrets that they’ve shared behind my back
Now my cell phone keeps vibrate’n but I ain’t coming back

My cell phone keeps vibrate’n, I feel it against my thigh
But I cannot answer it, because I know I’ll start to cry
My spirit has been broken; my heart’s been torn in two
I am driving to find a dead-zone where her calls can’t come through

Memories of loving her are circling through my mind
But forgiveness for a lost in trust is something I can’t find
A “ding” says there’s an email; a “beep” means there’s a text
And when it starts vibrate’n I feel my heart bleeding in my chest

My cell phone keeps vibrate’n, I feel it against my thigh
But I cannot answer it, because I know I’ll start to cry
My spirit has been broken; my heart’s been torn in two
I am driving to find a dead-zone where her calls can’t come through

Sonnet X or The Bluebird Sonnet

O why’d they misconstrue your colour against you?
When the song is swift imagination, so sweet and full
Why’d they whisper of weariness, of idiomatic blue?
When pause is ponderous play not a dark silent lull
It is the bluebird’s song that warm thoughts entice
That unexpected exuberant bout of welcomed joie de vivre
That instant intoxication of all virtue and all vice
Oft’ heard from coffee’d morn till the day’s end receive’
When beguiled by melody left to lilt through wistful air
That beacon of curiosity which so quickly is consume’
Cheery embrace – the listener enraptured is divided ne’er
Till the final bar closes only then may the day resume
Though for tunes of waking night the bluebird composes nigh
Alas, her song is for bright day not for moon’s sleepless sigh

Don't Doubt I Love You

You can doubt the sun will rise
Or that the skies are ever blue.
You can doubt an eagle flies
Or that truths are ever true.
You can doubt everything you see
Within your field of view.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

You can doubt the change of seasons
Or that stars will always shine.
You can doubt both faith and reason,
And that elements combine.
You can doubt the things I say
And the things you see me do.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt I love you.

A Song

Songs which will never be sung,
of sadness, despair and nightmarish dreams,
Songs which will never be heard,
of lost loves, pain, and gloomy days,

Take a journey of dreams with me,
So i can sing of unfathomable love,
For this song i have written with cupid's aid,
One with a melody of love and trust,
In this magical night, our music pushes all negativity aside,

Back to the realm of creativity i shall travel,
To write more songs to see your smile,
Though my destination lies over a thousand miles,
To sing you a new song each night,
it'll be indeed worthwhile.

Straight to the Heart

It’s like we’re walking on tight ropes,
And I’m strung out on all my hopes.
Hopes like that you love me so,
And you’d never think to let me go.
I tried playing games like tic tac toe,
To trick you into having me to hold.

But this time,
I mean it when I say.
This time,
I’ve got no games left to play.
I swear,
I’m gonna make you wanna stay.

I’m going straight to the heart.
I’m tired of endings,
So I’ll start,
By calling on the love I had pending.
It’s not enough,
To just have you here,
I need to trust,
That you ain’t going nowhere.
And if I send a spark,
Through your veins,
Straight to your heart,
I know we’ll never,
Be apart.

The Summer of the Winter Sky

It was time for the leaves to fall,
The fields to turn white,
The birds to leave for faraway lands-
And the long cold lonely nights.

Seemed like for eternity
She hadn’t had a smile -
Frozen was the world around
Lonely she walked  for miles.
Dead were the blossoms in her garden,
And love was about to die-
And yet she prayed to her unseen friend -
For the summer of the winter sky!


Not a song was heard at dawn,
Only the echo of the wind-
In the misty field of corn
Not a farmer was seen!
A wait so long, so painful to bear
Left alone with no one so near
She was lost in her own reverie-
With tears in her dreamy eyes.
And she prayed as her heart cried-
Longing for the summer of the winter sky.



No one knows who heard her prayer
Lost amidst the silence
And yet an early morning bud 
Blossomed in her garden!
Suddenly a little sparrow was seen 
High on the branch of the willow tree
Singing a song as if to welcome-
Amidst the grey sky, a sun so warm.
And love then again knocked her door
Promising a life like never before-
And like a happy child  she opened her eyes
For it was summer for the winter sky!

Like No One Else Before

Like No One Else Before You touched my heart Like no one else before With promises of love My heart could not ignore. You brought me perfect love – No one could ask for more. You filled my empty arms, Girl Like no one else before. Here in my heart You’ll always have a place – Where hopes and dreams can live And lovers can embrace. You have the only key That can open the door. You gave my life new meaning Like no one else before. For all my life I waited here for you. I knew you’d come my way And make my dreams come true. A lifetime in your arms Is what I see in store. You touched my lonely heart, Girl – Like no one else before. John Posey 10/16/13

Morning Song

I have come to the tree green with leaves
Amidst the brash blustering of winter and thawing
The prophet once the old green decieves
But he did not hear else but cold crow cawing 
I am come to thronging of the voice
And the memory of years in shadows decayed
For there was no sunlight to rejoice
The heart, nothing bright for what we prayed

But there perched on a lectern like limb
On this gray day you find another voice to sing
The voice I thought I was dead, since dim
Light found you no where on your  sovereign and sweet wing
Hark how it sings from Abraham to King
Hark the passion pelting the prodigal of faith
And our weariness melting, we cling
To each word, loving the song and knowing its late.

O but sweet today, and not sweeter
Before, this is the sweetest song you ever sang
Nothing in it for our hereafter
Just the reminder that dawn can still come fire-strong
As we love our leaders to be. Wet
My hope again with dew and set my love to bloom
And for this song I too shall forget
The coming sunset everywhere, the harping doom.

Heartprints

Girl your love is like Picasso’s work of art
For U etched your prints into the canvas of my heart 
And they’re forever branded in the walls of my soul
Timeless as Rembrandt and Michelangelo’s
But I know you’re unlike any of these artist’s
Cause on my heart is where your art is 
 
Here upon my heart U left the evidence
a perfect picture of love’s testament
Here upon my heart U know U etched your prints
and U hold all precedence
Because this love is meant
 
Girl your love is like the stars that shine so bright
Sweet impressions of affection shining in heavens delight
They’re forever etched into the galaxies of time
Just like the prints U left on this old heart of mine
But I know that love’s not written in the stars
Cause the love U wrote is written in my heart
 
Here upon my heart U left the evidence
and your touch is so eminent
Here upon my heart U know U etched your prints
and it’s of no coincidence
This love is heaven sent

The Song Of David

Enlighten days have past
He comes excel in all, so he thinks
"I am greater than man,
I know what ignorant man does not.
Come to me for knowledge unsurpassed!".
He points to the blue heaven,
"Where is thy wisdom? For I know all.
Where is thy command? That makes the ground shake
And brings forth water that lives?"

At the great gatherings,
He flocks the shepherds, blind, mute and deaf  
He answers to the multitude of questions
He asked the shepherds, "but what are thy questions?",
“I know not what do ask a man of your wisdom, but what  is a dream?
What is life?” asked the young herdsman.
"I know not what you speak of", said the Man.
"I only know what i can feel, touch and see"

"A dream is dream that passes us by, like gentle breeze of fresh spring.
Life holds all things mystery and doubts.
Shepherd knows to flock, not life or dreams".
"The shepherds are those who are humble, noble one", said the herdsman
"The blind cannot see, the mute cannot speak and the deaf cannot hear".
"Who are you preaching to? Silent and amaze, the man looks on.  

"If the blind could see you, 
They would say, 'look here is the man who tried to humble the blind
For they can see what others cannot,
If the mute could speak, they would humble you!
And if the deaf could hear they would shamed your wisdom".
"Was I a fool?" said the Man "or are you not that young herdsman?
Who knows nothing of life and passes his days tending the sheep's?
What could you learn from such simpleton life?"

"Life I live is simple indeed, 
No one knows that the shepherds are those who protects the weak"
"Nature is a friend of the shepherd; we sing the song of David
And rubs the olive oil to our young sheep, to keep away the flies".
Insulted, the man's fury turns over to the young herdsman
"Nature? Protect the weak? The song of David? Flies?
How can nature befriend a lonely shepherd? Protect who?
Song of David the Shepherd who became the king? 
What flies would harm the young flocks?"

The young herdsman smiled at the frown face of the man,
Left without a word
The blind, the mute and deaf ignored the man.
An unyielding shame kept the man humbled
He wonders why the young herdsman smiled about.
He came about a bridge and crossed the rocky roads
On the hill top he stood 
And saw the young herdsman singing the Song of David.

Why I Love You

People just don’t understand
Why I love you as I do
They think I am too intense
And perhaps, dear, it is true

But you see, Love, they don’t know
That you are the best of me
They simply cannot fathom
What your presence means to me

For you’re the living product 
Of a love truly sublime
The precious witness of truth
Of two bodies that combine

You are the reason we hope
For the better things in life
The reason that we dream on
Of when daughter becomes wife

But not just for the future
You are why I face each day
Sometimes I want to check out
I know you want me to stay

I sometimes think that this life
Is much more than I can take
But I know I must go on
I survive for your sweet sake

As long as you need Mommy
As long as you need me here
I’ll invest myself in you
I pledge always to be near

You’ve seen the good and bad
You know the demons I fight
Yet you say that you love me
And my world is filled with light

So, dear, why do I love you?
Why do I keep going on?
In a world filled with sorrow
YOU are my heavenly song!

TIME WILL TELL

I AWOKE TO A NEW DAY,
AND NOW I SEE THINGS MORE CLEARLY.
WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY,
FOR IF YOU COULD LISTEN TO MY HEART YOU COULD HEAR ME!

IF MY HEARTS SONG WOULD SING TO YOU, 
IT WOULD SERENADE YOUR EMOTIONAL DESIRE.
FORGIVE ME FOR THE THINGS IVE PUT YOU THROUGH,
MY INSECURITIES HAD ME WRAPPED IN BARBED WIRE!

I ASKED GOD FOR FORGIVENESS,
FOR THE THINGS IVE SAID AND DONE.
YOU WERE MY ANGELIC PRINCESS,
AND I WAS SELFISH TO PUSH YOU AWAY AND RUN!

THEY SAY WHEN YOU LOVE SOMETHING SET IT FREE.
BUT IF YOU GIVE UP SO EASILY-THEN IT WAS NOT MEANT TO BE!

TIME WILL TELL ALL THINGS,
AND I CAN ONLY PRAY YOUR FEELINGS ARE STRONG ENOUGH.
LET ME PLAY A MELODY ON YOUR HEARTSTRINGS,
AND BEFORE GOD IT WILL BE A SONG OF ETERNAL LOVE!!!!!

Play me the song of the broken hearted

I feel the rhythm very sad and slow
You’re gone from my eyes and I’m feeling low
The pain of the chord the singe of the guitar
Sooths my soul even though you’re far

I need to hear the verse when we are parted
Play me the song of the broken hearted

The whisper of the drums and the keys of the piano
I’ll be much better when I hear the singers solo
The kiss of your life I wish it was here
Please play that solemn melody so I can hear it clear

I need to hear the verse when we are parted
Play me the song of the broken hearted

I miss you so much I wish you were here today
I’ll hit replay when I hear the music fade away
So sing me the song it’s my favorite tune
I’ll hope with all that I am I’ll be with you soon

I need to hear the verse when we are parted
Play me the song of the broken hearted

our love

our love has come and gone
just like the freshly played melody of our song
though i cannot lie
i will sigh
to you i will say a final goodbye
our love has faded away
like a breeze on a hot summers day
our love has gone out of fashion
and its time to move on
because our love has come and gone
like the faded memory of our song
and with a sigh
to you i say a final good bye

Music

I have always liked music from a early start
music often plays deep with in my heart
as I think of God and the family and friends he did bring
I just feel  so much Love and my heart starts to sing
I feel   my heart dancing with every beat
when I think of my blessings and how I was made unique
the Lord has given me so many things
and music is just one key
but his Love is the greatest thing ever given to me
so dear Lord as I meditate upon you
there is a  song in my heart making it dance with joy too
the rhythm flows through my being and flows  through my veins
and my heart will sing unto you a Love song
time and time again....

my heart sings and dances with glee
 for I love the Lord and he Loves me.

sing unto the Lord a new  song   for his unfailing love endures forevr Amen.

Come Chill With Me Tonight

Verse 1:
Don't be shy,
I just wanna spend some time,
Make you mine,
Make it right,
Don't need to worry,
Girl, no one will ever compare,
To you,

Chorus:
Girl, The moon is close tonight,
Mother nature's on my side,
Let the clock move slow all night,
Come chill with me tonight,

I said the dj's on my side,
And he's playing our song all night,
We can dance all through the night,
Come chill with me tonight,

Verse 2:
Listen to the night,
Listen to the moving of the trees,
Their talking to me,
Controlling me,
They make me move,
As I watch the movement of the 
moon,

Chorus:
The moon is close tonight,
And it's shining on so bright,
And our love is worth the fight,
Come chill with me tonight,

Girl, the party's off tonight,
And their playing the disco right,
And the club won't be jumping 
tonight,
Come chill with me tonight,

I said the dj's on my side,
And he's playing our song all night,
We can dance all through the night,
Come chill with me tonight...

Stop Breaking My Heart

Take my hand

drag me in 

a world of beauty and wonder

make me feel

like I'm you're only girl

push me away

kiss a girl with a pretty face

and let me know we're through




So will you

stop breaking my heart?

If you love me

you wouldn't let me fall apart

baby please tell me

what we're doing

I gotta know

where it is you want me to go




you say you wanna stay friends

but you still love to take my breath away

every single day

I wait for the night Wehre i won't cry

eoshing you could change your mind

but when you do I wait for goodbye




so will you

stop breaking my heart?

If you love me 

you wouldn't let me fall apart

baby please tell me

what we're doing

I gotta know

where it is you want me to go

A certain star

A song for a special angel.


A certain star.

A certain star did ride the sky
On the day that I met you
It symbolized a special love
With force so rare and true
That opens hearts just like a flower,
It’s only aim, to bloom
This star did prophesy the love 
You use to melt my gloom

A special magic in the air
Seems to come when you are here
It seeps into my tender heart
As love so pure and clear
Sends out a beam of ecstasy
Creating sweet love songs
That will last forever more
Until all time is gone.

A special song will always play
A tender symphony
A serenade, a rhapsody
Of the love, twixt you and me
And with this song my life will bloom
Within loves mystery 
And all this love, I have for you
Will see eternity

Waters' Rush Memory

~
along the winding hopeful stream
a simple love plays upon my heartstrings
of song in memory long ago 
when emerald gardens became our home 
where lazy waters' meandered through our souls 
and purity fervid in prison walls
for now along the winding stream
I lay alone in yesterdays dreams
of beauty that somehow still remain 
although your grace gone away...
~
within my heart a song still play...

I once used to be ‘hot’ for old What’s-Her-Name,
That girl that set my first fire aflame.
Just being near her would make my blood sizzle,
Then suddenly she was gone without even a fizzle.
 
I sadly regretted that old What’s-Her-Name,
And wondered what went wrong, who was to blame?
I got over her, then another, and another,
Then I found the one that I chose out from all others
 
I sometimes still think about old What’s-Her-Name—
Just passing thoughts without regrets or shame.
But if I dwelled on her, I would be most ungrateful
For the one that I love who’s always been faithful.
 
I found online my old What’s-Her-Name,
Though she was listed by his other name.
Maybe someday I’ll just send her an email,
To say I’m happy for her and to wish her well.
 
(Chorus)  We meet new people and change as we grow.
She whom I love now, back then I didn’t know.
Like waves crashing on a weathered seashore,
That which once was is now never more.

Honky Tonk Angel

Only God can make a honky tonk angel,
because only God knows what’s in a country boy’s soul.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
and the eyes are the reflection of the soul.
God done went and did Himself proud
when He made honky tonk angels,
because it was a honky tonk angel
who took complete control of my heart.

Broken String

It’s the same pattern all over, the same way.
The same story all night again and again.
Her song went on and looped but never strays, 
nothing ever changed and she kept singing in vain.  
Strummed the notes, through her fears and pain,
smiles and tears, a languished memory they’d bring. 
Sorrows were hidden, happiness she’d feign
and the incomplete melody played with no more but a broken string. 

He stabbed her heart once again, after that day 
life was taken away and so was her sane. 
Begged for mercy one last time, she stopped and prayed.
Filled one single glass with a whole bottle of champagne
the familiar moans through days she’d maintain.
Attempts she took trying to mend the wedding ring
but all that were left were pieces she disdained
and the incomplete melody played with no more but a broken string.

Other songs joined in along but faded away. 
Alone again the cries had once been restrained. 
Solid tears, trapped in her eyes will soon decay. 
It’s this same song to him she’d once entertain, 
and this damaged guitar she threw but detained.
As the blood trickled down her lips but her heart that sting. 
She endured the pain, in hope that something will break the chain
and the incomplete melody played with no more but a broken string.

Strumming the notes, through her fears and pain
smiles and tears, a languishing memory they brings 
Sorrows are hidden, happiness she feigns
and the incomplete melody plays with no more but a broken string.

I Keep On Waiting

You know that I love you.
I've been waiting for days.
Just for you to pass by my house.
Yes! You know that I need you.
So I stand in the road.
So you stop and stay with me.
I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..
So I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

You know that I cherish.
Your love everytime.
It goes by my front door.
And I know that I love you.
Until the end of time.
I will carry on with you.
So I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

I've spent a lifetime.
Just dreaming of things.
That you might do with me.
Because you know that I love you.
I've been waiting for days.
Just for you to pass by my house.
I know that I need you.
So I stand in the road.
So you stop and stay with me.

I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

So I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

I just keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

Not Too Late

There's a ghost hiding in the past
there's a boy wishing it has last
all these secrets stop the seting sun
all the love has grown, but never said
and he wishes he could've told her what she meant
he wishes he could've said how he felt

But it's not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

There's an angel looking down
There's a boy without a frown
all this hope brings the rising sun
all thsi love we wish we had sent
he can feel she's in his heart
and will enver let him fall apart

"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

He remembers 
talking o nteh couch feeling safe
he remembers writing a poem and her saying its great
he remembers
how he cried wehn she didn't open her eyes
he remembers
fearing things he can't describe


"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

The Day the Music Died

Whenever February brings 
a winter chill, 
I think about that song, and 
see you standing there 
on that beach,
white sand, blue water,
palm trees casting
shade, solitude, and
you swaying to the 
sound of the waves
with your pony tail flowing down 
blowing' in the wind.


Oh Oh Oh
that first hello,
your silent gestures,
and your wide eyes gazed
at me, and at that moment, 
everything changed, and 
I fell into you.


Sometime after that first hello, 
we were like children again, 
building castles, palaces, and
writing our
names in the sand, 
snapping pictures of each other, 
and watching that flimsy
paper and string drifting on the breeze.



When I hear that song,
I think about you,
I think about three stars falling
from the sky.
Strange
how a song 
sounds like a memory, 
like a recording
of a summer's day on that beach.

The day the music died, 


Like a beach-pea blossoming 
and binding the sand, 
our hearts were blossoming and
binding love.


Sometimes we'd shout,
sometimes we'd doubt, 
but we knew
true love ways,
and Oh Boy,
when we were together
all the world could see
we were good for each other.


When I hear that song,
I think about you, 
I think about three stars falling
from the sky.
Strange
how a song 
sounds like a memory, 
like a recording
of a summer's day on that beach.

The day the music died, 


At sunset, 
we would spread a blanket, 
unpack a basket, 
and lay back
for a picnic on the beach.

As the sky coaxed the mood 
from daylight to moonlight, 
in the still of the night
to angel of the morning
the silence of your
gestures and your smiles
attracted me
then you said stay,
And it was complete.

Strange how a song 
sounds like a memory.

Like a recording of a summer's day 
on that beach.

The day the music died.

The Day the music died.

Twinkle Twinkle Brilliant Star Lullaby Medly

Twinkle twinkle brilliant star
Heaven’s best to me you are
You’re the brightest star of night
And you are my guiding light
Twinkle twinkle brilliant star
Shine on me from where you are...

Sleep my love, my star
Stop your hard work
Of lighting the way for me
Let all the burdens go
Let me lull you to sleep
Hear the lullaby of my heart
As you put your head
On my pillowy breast
Hush now, hush
Leave your cares behind
Let the whole world go
Let me cushion your body
And sooth your mind
Don’t make a sound
As my hands ease away 
The rough handling of your day
Let it all go
There…there. Yes, give in to my care
Listen to my song
Let me cover you with
My warm blanket of love
Hush now my man, my child
Let me carry you to dream land
Let the gentle motion of my rocking
Become the rythm of your dreams
There…close your eyes
Hush….now hush
I'm here....I'm here...

Twinkle Twinkle brilliant star
What an awesome man you are
You're my shinning light so high
You're my diamond in the sky
Winkle twinkle brilliant star
You’re my man, oh yes you are

You're my man.....
                           oh yes......
                                           you.......

The Muse Has Gone

I think I may write, but of what I am not sure
It could a be a love verse or one not so pure
I think I would like to write a verse on love and life
But it gets so hard and can be full of such strife

What can I write for this new one-to-one
My thoughts are dried up, and now they are gone
The muse she has left me, what am I to do?
I will just send these lines, as they are now to you.

Please do not judge me, if I get it wrong
But this is a breeze, I may now write a song
A song of love or a song on what will be will be?
Come muse I beg, send a new thought down to me.

No I am not there yet, I can’t think of a new one
So I give up on this piece that was for the one-to-one.
I will do the next one when I know what to say
So this is the end of it, I will send this one your way.

I'll Leave You My Tears

You said I could trust you with my smile,
but I should have asked to trust you with my tears.
You pulled me close yet you knew all the while
you couldn't keep and guard all my hopes and fears.
You wanted me on your lonely and gray days,
so you could run with me and laugh and joke and play,
but when the hard times came and I felt oh so sad,
you didn't try to understand, you didn't want to stay.

Love means to stand together strong
wrapped in the warmth we thought would be there all along,
but then I turned and reached and you had gone away
and crushed my world of trust forever on that day.

How can I ever - ever love again,
now that my smiles are gone to stay.
I'll leave you my tears ...
 
To go as lyrics with Michael Columbier's Emmanuel

Two Lonely Hearts

We've been apart, for a very long time.
Time is still on my mind.
I must find my way back to you.

It's been awhile, since you stared in my eyes.
True love never dies.
As the stars begin to shine.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

Two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

You stayed away, for a very long time.
Your thought still on my mind.
I must find my way back to you.

I always thought, you would stand next to me.
You would never leave.
You would never leave my side.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town..

Let The Gypsy Fiddler Play

Let the Gypsy Fiddler play a haunting melody as we race blindly, through this life, toward what is meant to be. Let his fingers touch the strings, his arm, control the bow, as we seek love and happiness in a world that tells us, "No". So, play you Gypsy Fiddler! Play with all your heart! The echo of your melody gave this love its start. And when your song is over -- when you no longer play -- we'll have to pay the fiddler and go our separate way. The Gypsy Fiddler found us a little bit too late. But the way he played upon our hearts was destiny, or fate. He's in the final chorus now, he'll soon complete the song. Then we'll be called to live again in a world we don't belong. So, play you Gypsy Fiddler! Play with all your heart! The echo of your melody gave this love its start. And when your song is over -- when you no longer play -- we'll have to pay the fiddler and go our separate way.

She has gone

Standing there alone at the graveyard
Calling yearning memories of the past
Can't stop his tears , that's truly hard
She has gone , What a dote didn't last!

Shrouded by thoughts , downcast eye
Her voice is still beating in his ear
She was singing like a bird under the clear sky
When he played harp and waterfall was near

Can't forget these hoary promises to be together
On good and bad , To make love their guide
He just wanna say he will be loyal forever
Until his soul meets her on the other side

Don't Play That Song Again

Here I am at a get together. Everything is going 
fine. I thought I was late getting here, but seems 
I am on time.

The D.J. plays a song and I am taken a-back. Anything, 
but this song, tell me why did he do that?

This song creates too many memories of a love I was
had. Like a time machine here I am visiting my own
past.

There she is in a beautiful dress, the love of my 
life is adorned. I'm telling her, "When your mother 
gave birth to you, my love, a star was born."

She's telling me, "You are my sun, my moon, my stars
and my whole world. This is so wonderful! I am so 
blessed to have you call me your girl."

Now I see me putting a promise ring on her finger. 
She's now crying, by not only this, but by the
words of the song from singer.

Standing there and seeing this, I am frozen in time. 
Tears falling down, saying to myself, "This girl was 
once mine."

The song is now over and I snap back into reality.
People are staring, pointing, looking, asking what's
wrong with me.

Oh I am okay, I was taken a-back just then. I just 
have one request D.J., "Don't play that song again."

Making Up for My Mistakes

Writing this cuz theres nothing left for me to do,
I hope you know im trying to make up for all of my mistakes,
Im trying to make up for all the promises i have broke.
Im sorry for ever trying to see if we would work,
Im trying to tell you that i will leave you be if you want me to,
But know their is nothing that i would ever put above you.
Im making up for all of my mistakes, 
Im trying to prove that im not the person you saw,
its never too late to show you the real me, the person you never knew.
I dont deserve to tell you i love you.
Ive done too much to you,
Im sorry for everything.
Im going to sing this song to you,
One last time,
And i hope you will understand.
Im making up for all of my mistakes,
Im trying to prove that im not the person you knew,
Its never too late for me to show you the real me, the person you never knew.
I know their is nothing that i can do to make you change your mind,
But i hope this song at least helps a little,
Im trying to make up for my mistakes,
Im trying to make up for all the promises i broke.
Im sorry for trying to see if we would ever work
I cant tell you i love you
I just hope you know,
That ill never put anything above you,
And im trying to make up for all my mistakes.

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.

Morning Raga - "Tell Me A Story!"

In the first grey light of dawn, a young woman begins the morning song.
The simple cadences of her song are as tranquil and liquid as the monsoon rain, 
Trickling down the broad leaves in her mother’s garden.
The steady drumming on the veranda roof echoes her rhythms. 

She sings of joys, of sorrows, and of love … always of love … 

This morning song is as familiar and comforting as a lullaby.
Her mother brought it with her from the South, 
And sang it every morning for her father.
Now, she sings for them both, as they begin the day.

Today will be special for her.
She is to meet her future husband for the first time.
She has never seen him, but she trusts her parents’ judgement … 
After all, they love her, don’t they?

She hopes he will be kind, and maybe a little bit handsome … 
Like the boy she’s seen in town.
But she must try to forget him … 

On another veranda, a young man sits silent, listening.
He sits here at every dawn to hear the morning raga, 
Entranced by the voice of a girl he cannot see.

He, too, is to meet his betrothed today.
He wishes she might be a singer, or at least enjoy the morning song,
When she comes to live at his mother’s house.

He remembers a lovely girl he saw … sly glances, shy smiles … 
If his new wife is half as pretty, he will be well content.
Yes! He will … 

He believes his secret is safe, but mothers see everything … 
And his mother loves him. So she whispered to a friend,
And her friend whispered to another, and, well … 
A good husband is not hard to persuade … 

The sun has risen above the clouds.
There is much to do today – and if the young people agree,
There will be a lucky Monsoon wedding to arrange.

But first, the song.

Love's song

Love has sang it's mysterious song to me a few times

Never has the melody been so beautiful as it is now
The words so clear...so enticing...so mesmerizing...so loud

Pentrating
Pulsating
Liberating

I dance to the rhythm and embrace loves tune
I can't help but surrender, completely vulnerable, open...In a trance...on a cloud
The music plays, not ending any time soon
it's chorus so magical and tender, I sing along...happy and proud

A WALTZ FOR MOTHER

These sobs have never stopped and tears still flow
as dripping leaves after a summer's storm;
this wailing son has lost his joy to sorrow
refusing to be consoled; today, your favorite flowers
I lay on your grave and leave you lovely prayers
by the silver cross for you to read and feel warm
on winter's lonely and cold days
that will drift into the sun's fading glow.



This waltz is for you, mother smiling from Heaven...
and I will dance it while the robins
and larks watch, thinking I am mad to have chosen
a place of mourning and tranquility 
with cypresses offering a pleasant breeze;
would I do this if I didn't love you truly?



Very, very long ago you took my small hand 
and slowly and tenderly taught me how to dance
on a meadow covered with yellow and white daisies;
there was no music, but humming birds sang 
the simplest song they ever knew as the gentle wind caressed our sunlit heads
beneath the August sky traversed by torrid clouds that escaped to other seas.



This waltz is for you, mother living in that place of delight, 
oh, smile with the same tenderness and care of heart;
would any other desire be more intense
than being together and happily dance
that waltz without pausing...sweetly losing ourselves in idyllic fantasy 
and explore happiness in unimaginable ways to shun painful reality?

Have All The Songs Been Written

My pen is drawn to words not mine In search of thoughts that say How much your love has meant to me In oh, so many ways. To write a song for you alone Is what I try to do. But words unsaid are hard to find To say how I love you. Each now and then, I seem to find A special word or two, But closer looks in old songbooks Find words meant just for you. The words that say what your love means Are there for all to see. Oh (Girl), I wish with all my heart Those words had come from me. Have all the songs been written? Have all the words been said? Must I depend on someone else? Or can I look ahead? To words unsung to say the things My words cannot fulfill? If the song has not been written Then Girl, I know I will.

My Love is Like a Frankenstein

Unbearably, oh! So terribly-
Have I ruined my only chance?
But sing with me sad melodies;
Let us ponder while we dance
And find our reasons, somewhere cold-
Buried in all we fail to find
Lo, thy Heart; to have- to hold!
Never could I be that kind

To be so gentle, as not to break
For all my Love, a Monster makes!

*This is an old, slightly silly piece, and a weak one at that

What if

if love could talk what would it say?
if love could sing what would it sing?

if love could talk it would say that, you are in the most happy place in the world, and that no 
matter how hard you try no matter what you do no matter what you say nothing and on one 
can take that from you.
if love could talk it would say that, every thing your felling is going to be with you for the rest 
of your life and no matter how hard you try you will never forget how you felt at that perfect 
moment. even if your not with that person anymore you will always remember. you may 
even brake down and cry and wonder why it had to end. but no matter what it will always be 
with you, you will never forget and no one can take it from you.

if love could sing, it would sing the most sweetest song that when life seems to be at an end 
brings you back to those most sweetest memories. if love could sing it wold sing out the 
song of your life and remind you of everything that made you the person you are today, it 
would sing the song of everything that ever happend witch brought you to that most perfect 
moment that you were once at
if love could sing it would sing to you in the most sweetest voice that would remind you that 
you were once happy and if you tryed and oppend up to someone if you let someone in for 
once you could be happy like that agin.

but love can't talk and love can't sing.. so you may forget, and someone may take it from 
you. there is no song with the most sweetest voice.. all there is....is fear. the fear that you 
will forget the fear that someone will take it from you. the fear of lossing your happyness 
and the fear of letting someone in. 

(i know my spelling is bad please overlook this flaw)

Teenage Pregnancy

With broken heart and all alone, she cried.
“I love you.” were his words, but he lied.
A sweet young girl now lost in deep despairs.
No!  Teenage pregnancy; God knows and cares.

She always was her daddy's little girl.
His precious child to womanhood was hurled.
A father's love surpasses anger's flares.
No!  Teenage pregnancy; God knows and cares.

She went to church to learn the right and wrong.
A choir angel singing heaven's song –
Brothers, sisters solemnly sit and stare.
No!  Teenage pregnancy; God knows and cares.

Her rounded body feels the life within.
Motherhood lives near to her chagrin.
Her mother held her close; the tears were theirs.
No!  Teenage pregnancy; God knows and cares.

“Sure, she's nice,” he said, but we are so young.
Fatherhood was not for him; his song was sung.
“She should have been more careful,” he declares.
No!  Teenage pregnancy; God knows and cares.

			the rivers, the stars,the wind and the sea...
		The song that played when we were together,

			The music that played when you first came to me,

		the music of breeze and water as you held my hand...

			The music of your laughter and the birds in the skies...                        
		Its time now, and it has been so long, please come along,
		And once again let me hear that song.....

Life's Complexity

Look deep within the light my love
My gentle caring sleep
the song of nature drifts along
at times the wind is steep and strong

The heart a hollow empty song
the drain on life complete
but then from out of emptyness 
the song of love grows strong

The energy returning
you dance upon your feet
the cuddles that you're yearning
returned you are complete 

my mind delves into darkness
it fights with dreams and scheemes
it struggles with the truth of life
I need to know whats real

I need to know the truth of life
to know whats really real
we study then the body 
the life of man complete

look to see the beauty 
complexity so sweet
interwoven nature 
our thoughts of glowing flame

We study terminology
we study anthropology
we study then biology
with thoughts that do compete

In truth this sweet compexity 
holds answers over time
who did design the human brain
who did design the mind

The arguments from science
I then do not believe
It simply was by accident
we came to be conceived

the body's so complex my friend
I think they self deceive
I do believe in science
the study of our life

I do believe the bible
that god created life
I do not see your problem
I do not see your strife

It say's that god created man
it does not tell you how
Could evolution be my friend
the tool that god made to make man

You are

You are a star that changed my life from dim to 
light
A queen who captivates hearts in the kingdom of 
beauty
You made me think about you all day and night
Being your servant for the rest of life is my holy 
duty

You are a talented archer and I am your victim
I failed to escape your arrows that made me fall in 
love
Though they hit me , they brought me nothing but 
vim
As on seeing your face , I feel being in the heaven 
above

Maybe these arrows killed me and that power is 
fake
As on being a martyr of love , life and death are the 
same
Maybe it's a long dream and I don't want to be 
awake
I feel I am a child who is attracted to an 
entartaining game

You are a curse from satan , No you are a divine 
bless
I don't know , but because of you , I am in a 
wonderful mess

What Whispers The Wind.

The winds is too haunting
its dour, dreary and daunting
its voiceless song is wanting
for souls to listen it flaunting

Its whistling tunes that play
eerie melodies of dismay
oft sweet, oft an angered fray
they beckon me to come away

From my souls lone sojourn
where the ashes never burn
to reach out for what I yearn
learning to forget, to unlearn

The winds are too disturbing
and the chills are unnerving
so guilty and undeserving
of memories they're reserving

They are calm as moonlight
and a lonely souls delight
whispering sharp yet slight
with many a secret to confide

And I listen with attention rapt
at the words so true and apt
to souls that the winds trapped
that apprehensively adapt

The winds are so tantalizing
mystic, musical and surprising
tapering and quickly rising
hypnotic and channelizing

They bring what we forget
all our pain and our regret
words meant to remain unsaid
truths and the lies we dread

They are calling me desperately
the song turns a woeful plea
and I wish it would swallow me
with the whispers I long to flee

And be a secret of the breeze
the incessant mourns that freeze
the souls passing by the trees
the singer that no one sees

Setting my shivering soul aflame
my minds peace it can't reclaim
at times it whispers Your name
subtly, I whisper back the same.

My wife

My wife.

She closed her eyes as I kissed her once more
A sweet tender kiss between two lovers, one soul.

My heart fluttered to the touch of her lips,
Two minds tuned together to a song we’ve missed.

A song we wrote together in moonless night
Two people together passionately in love.

That was many years ago too young to realize
So many obstacles lay ahead in the path of love.

Thirty three years passed like a gleam, and 
Three beautiful boys became our joy and dream.

You Go Round My Incomplete Circle

I’ve never written on a guy so much
Experienced what it’s like to love forever
To listen to every love song
And
Enjoy how every word paints a picture of us
If you knew how my heart sings it’s own song for you
You would cry your eyes out

Or rather your heart
Don’t leave or my song will die
Pulverize
Recede into my body 
And out of
My tearing eyes

I’m possessed 
It would be evil to heal me from
My stagnant bliss

I’ve never bared the thought 
Of our separation
I’ve clung to us
Like an octopus
And you…
Well it’s your part to finish my thoughts
Cause you complete me
Like the moon in the middle of the night
Round my incomplete circle

Now I Am Free from My Step-parent

A life of beauty and happiness denied, of innocence 
smothered like a flame, I have always lived; but when 
I hear your lovely voice, my Lisa--

now I am free.

I was dead before I even entered into this world, a
place cruel and without feeling, cruel and without 
the love and understanding I finally know in the rich 
harmonies of your voice, my Lisa--

which sets me free.

Before I could even hope to bloom like a sensual
flower caught breathless and naked in the first, rainy
sunbeams of spring a great evil--the threatening, 
inner hostility of a dark figure overflowing with 
bigotry--transformed me into a joyless 

waste of ashes.

From that terrible moment on I fought all the ugly
and horrible assaults as his unwilling possession, a
gladiator in the arena of his constant abuse and 
myriad threats, subject to his occasional hostile 
looks from 

across the dinner table.

But when I hear your voice and imagine its tender-
ness and compassion as an unearned gift meant for 
me despite him and my child-like self-loathing: 

I feel the love and self-worth denied me, taken from
me simply because it was too easy to not rape from 
a child whose only fault was that he was born 

defenseless and
white.

O Lisa! Because of the music of your lovely voice--
now I am free! Free from my years as a gladiator in 
the arena of his constant abuse and attacks; 

free to bloom like a sensual flower caught breathless
and naked in the first, rainy sunbeams 

of Spring again!

DIGGING INTO THE BEATLES' MIND

How much sorrow can you take,
when all you think of is true joy?
Very lonely but not hopeless
until another sunrise comes...
you will be wishing, wide-awake,
for the sweet lips of that young boy!


O lonely girl listening to music and imagining love,
you shouldn't get wings and turn into a dove,
because boys don't believe in keeping promises...
they find another foolish girl somewhere else!
O lonely girl barely fourteen refrain from desire,
that desire that can only end up in dire!


It's okay to dream as teens do to vent their rage,  
it's fine to have a fantasy and wait for the phone to ring;  
and it's quite normal to think of boys at this age,
but be warned of the first heartbreak from a tender wink,
it may lead to something you are not ready for,
so keep on dreaming and shut that darn door!


Towards midnight you hear his voice again and feel fine,
it must be one of those dreams when he says, " Little doll,
you are the prettiest one among others so slim and tall!"
And he goes on, " I made you a promise you'll be all mine!"
Oh, dreamer so innocent: a pillow case is all you hold,
he's not yours by any means...he's a teaser and way too old!  
 

Your silly head is listening to the song he wrote,
a lovely love song he sent to your cellphone,
falling in love is not learned from a romance book:
words mislead and confuse the ones who are alone;
you may love him dearly, but all he does is using you for his own delight... 
he may love you, but he'll sing his song to someone who's not too bright.       


Inspired by the following songs:

Across The Universe
Lady Madonna
Lucille
Lonely Rita
Blackbird
Northern Song

Natures Dream

        I walk through the field of green 
  	My feet are bare and the grass squishes underneath me 
	The rain is falling like little pebbles soaking me in beauty 
 	I breathe in deep letting its sweet scent fill my nose 
	Suddenly my feet are moving in a circle 
	I am dancing, dancing with love and hope 
	Love for the rain and its beauty 
	Hoping this moment will last a lifetime 

	 My summer dress flowing in the wind 
	Until it’s sprinkled with tears from heaven 
	I can’t imagine anything greater than this
	I have fallen in love with this day 
	This moment means only the world to me
	The burning yellow sun peaks out of the clouds
	Shinning down on me with its warmth  
	The drops ping against my face leaving a stream 
	 
	I am still dancing in a circle now waving my arms in the air
	The song of nature sings to me in the wind 
	It sounds like a dozen wooden flutes  
	The tune is sweet so sweet I get swept away in it
	The grass is so green like emeralds from God 
	I fall from dancing and roll down the grass 
	The whole time I am laughing and it sounds as if the butterflies are too 
	My pretty white dress is now green 
	 
	Butterflies dozens of them are flying around me 
	They surround me in their array of magical colors 
	They start to hum to the song of nature sung by the wind 
	It seems as if this tune is from heaven 
	I start to hum along to this wonderful tune it seems so familiar 
	I close my eyes and start to dance all over 
	Letting nature take me away 
	Birds come and tweet along to the song 
	I don’t think I just do, I go along with the song

	Finally the sun peaks all the way out 
	I can see it warming up the earth with its warm rays 
	The rain is still coming down just sprinkling over 
	I can see ahead a field of daises beautiful white daises 
	I run as fast as I can to the daises the butterflies and birds follow 
	They are soft like silk, their smell fills my nose 
	I close my eyes and run through the endless field of daises 
	I lay down and watch the fluffy white clouds pass overhead 
	The sun shinning as bright as ever over the clouds and sky

	
         The sky is baby blue with a little purple 
         I have never seen a sky so wondrous 
         It looks so full of possibilities and magic
         As I lay there I hear the daises moving in the wind 
         To the song of nature once again 
         This I know is beauty at its best 
         I fall asleep to the tune and awake in clouds 
         I am home

Top of the World

There's a song in my heart.
And it's singing.
There's a poem inside my head.
That is ringing.
Saying, what I'm feeling.

My life, I am enjoying.
No pain destroying.
On top of the world.
My flag unfurled.
This song they are playing.

I am in the mood for love.
Like a light from above.
Shining on you.
The only one.
Come to me, 
If you only could.

In the meantime.
I think of you.
Live my life, alone and true.
Someday, maybe we will be as one.
You and I, together.
Loving one another.
For ever and anon.

I'll Be

Drip Drip tears fall down
Big splash and yet no sound
through my smile you saw my pain
didn't think no one could hear them 
the screams through the laughter
but then you came
won't forget what you said

You said I'll be there for you when you cry
I'll be the one to show your true smile
I'll be there to block the pain
I'll be there to scare your fears
and dry away all those tears
I'll be there day after day 
you know I'll be 
I'll be
your hero here to stay 

Bye bye there they go
so long cuase no one knows
that when they walk away
I have to face the day
with no one to help me through
that was until I met you

 And you said I'll be there for you when you cry
I'll be the one to show your true smile
I'll be there to block the pain
I'll be there to scare your fears
and dry away all those tears
I'll be there day after day 
you know I'll be 
I'll be
your hero here to stay

And after all the pain
after all the tears I have cried
I'm not scared to face the day
'cause I eknow you're by my side
because

you are there for me when I cry
you are the one to show my true smile
you were there to block the pain
you are there to scare my fears
and dry away all my tears
you're there for me day after day
you know you are
yeah you are
my hero here to stay

Whisper

Whisper.

Let us whisper you and I 
In a dark little corner and no candle light.

W'll wait until  dawn and watch the sunrise. 
Then catch a gentle breeze or watch a fading star.

We pick some flowers and catch a butterfly

We cross a small stream, sparkling water 
catches the corner of your eyes.

We make a sailing boat from paper then
write a little song.

Soon will be breakfast, then at dinner w'll say a prayer,
And at night time w'll light a fire, and then we retire.

Oh Love Bird

Oh! Love bird, don't fly away.
Spread your wings, and come my way.
Fly high, don't ever cry.
You will see.You'll soon be mine.

Oh! Love bird, don't leave my side.
Stay with me through out the night.

Oh! Love bird, next to me.
Love bird that's where you'll be.
Whistling a melody.
With me along, a symphony.

Oh! Love bird, don't be shy.
With me along, you'll never cry.
Soaring through out the sky.
Oh! Love bird, I'm by your side.

Oh! Love bird, don't sail away.
There will be another day.
For you and me to live our lives.
We'll sail across, the deep blue skies.

Oh! Love bird, don't fly away.
Oh! Love bird, why don't you stay?

Drum Beat

Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Holy. Freaking. Crap.

Here come the snare drums,
With the bass drums,
And the cymbals,
The band follows.

I have a secret.
Everyone knows it.
And I don't know about,
If I can contain this shout.

And I don't know,
If I can take it anymore.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Tap tap tap.
Boom-de-tap-tap.
The marching band's coming.
You better start moving.

They don't stop.
All of them just stomp- stomp- stooooomp.


I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

This song probably makes,
No sense.
But there's really no,
Deep meaning.

These are the facts...
Literally everyone goes,
Crap, crap, crap.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Zoom zoom zoom.
Zoom te zoom zoom.
My heart goes boom boom.
But you just see it through.
Like it's a clear,
Drum beat.

They've Written All My Songs

Every song like ‘Secret Love’ Or ‘Gentle On My Mind’ Say the things meant just for you In words I could not find. I’ve tried so hard to say just how Two rights are never wrong. But, every time, I always find They’ve written all my songs. I tried so many times to put it into rhymes. I want, so much, to tell the world just where my heart belongs. But, the words just pass me by – So, I sit and wonder why – With all the love I feel for you – They’ve written all my songs. Maybe love was never meant to seek us out and find a place that we can call our own and leave the world behind. My words can never say the things that you’ve known all along. So, my heart just cries when I realize They’ve written all my songs. I tried so many times to put it into rhymes. I want, so much, to tell the world just where my heart belongs. But, the words just pass me by – So, I sit and wonder why – With all the love I feel for you – They’ve written all my songs.

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.

THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU

     THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU
I know too well, we have to see
Some times in life that shouldn't be.
But through it all, in all I do,
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.

Our song may not tell everything
About the hurt that time can bring.
But through each pain we're going through,
Every song I ever sing, I'll always sing it for you..

This much I promise you.
I'll always have this love for you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

This much I promise you.
I'll always share this love with you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

Sometimes we go without a prayer
Because we just don't see one there.
But God is there, in all we do.
Everytime I ever pray, I'll pray a little for you.

I know sometimes we have to cry.
Because of love, I don't know why.
But through each tear I'm going through
Every time I ever cry, I'll cry a little for you. 

Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
 This much I promise you.

We better off

How is it great to wakeup in the morning
Without thinking stressfully about you
How is it wonderful to go shopping
without telling you what you buying and where to go
How is it relaxing to laugh with people
Without you telling me not to do
How is it nice to wear my mini skirt
Without you telling me, you are wearing this to who?
How is it peaceful to say its white when it's white
Without you obstinately calling the white blue
How is it just fine to walk my road
Without your people stalking me through
How is it easy to walk my door
Without you stepping on my shoe
That was not love I don't know what is sick
Is it your love or you?!
we are better off separated
I'll sing Usher's song for you
You should listen to it over and over
Because everyword in that song is so true
You should just forget about me
Because love isn't for me and you

FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness
By Author Ren R. Royal

The world is full of differences we all proclaim is right, 
How can we let go of our indifferences,
And forgive instead of fight?

The world is full of people who will gain at any price, 
We cheat, we steal, we lie-in order to get ahead,
Why do we gamble with such loaded dice?

The world's portrait of arrogance gleams its reflection, 
Often these imperfections we try and hide,
But will they pass the Lord's inspection?

The world is full of crime that leaves many victims suffering, 
False prophets and leaders claiming Jesus name,
The cloud of doom seems impending.

The world at large is full of goodness also, 
Because Christ died and rose, we are forgiven,
 As gifts of God's mercy and grace bestow.

The despairing world is changed – the horizon of Forgiveness appears, 
Love's light shines through hatred's blinding glare,
Wiping away the sorrowful tears.

The world sings the song of revenge's passion with its angry chord, 
Yet the note of God's forgiveness and compassion,
Leaves an astonishing reward.

The world of many languages speaks the Lords Prayer,
“"Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us." 
This love we find in others is genuine and rare. 

Vengeance divides, yet forgiveness unites, hand-in-hand, 
Forgiveness is the remedy to two hearts collided, 
That brings the song of peace to the land.

The world is hopeful because the hand of forgiveness reached out, 
Once divided in blame, now united in Christ,
God forever, every century, all time throughout.

The world is full of living faith because Christ's gospel lives on, 
Freed from resentments, each heart forgives,
When "Christ our solid rock" - we stand upon.

How can the lost in the world be found? 
How can the Gospel Word speak?
By sharing the note of forgiveness sweet sound.

The world is full of those who walk in faith, not sight, 
Spreading the aroma of salvation's bouquet,
With joy's fragrance to the hearts delight.

The world is full of orchestras, as the chorus of life is playing, 
When forgiveness emits its radiant glow,
Christ's love alive is portraying.

When we forgive, it is Christ we represent, 
Because my Savior, Jesus Christ first forgave me, 
Forgiveness ignites the flame of atonement.

Forgiveness is the key that opens the door to healing,
Forgiveness unlocks even a heart of stone,
Because it is Christ, ever-living, REVEALING.

Beyond What's Seen

You do not know what I see
I see you crying next to me
I see your pain, I see your tears
Through your laughs, and through the years
Past your mask I see your face
You are hiding in this place
Trust in me, I won't let you fall
You don't have to hide at all

Open up what's in your heart
That is the place I will start
Open up your eyes and see
All that's left is you and me
In the end you'll see the light
Come on, I don't want to fight
Together we will make it through
Come on. Now, It's me and you

Now you can start to feel
How much this love is true and real 
behind your eyes you keep your pain
It's all locked up in your brain
Come on. Now, just let it out
It's okay to scream and shout
I will help you through and through
I will always be with you

Iris

To me, yea, Iris is like bleu
The scent of yours all imbued
Behold your face all-rich, 
When I close my eyes bewitched

Wordsworth's daffodils to me, 
Membrane of the eyes of glee, 
That gives light to me in turn, 
Light that misleads the morn.

You are the genus iris, 
With sword-shaped leaves, 
Showy colored flowers, 
Displaying rainbow colors.

Your eyes green and deep, 
Deeper than the depth, 
Stilled waters at even, 
Eyes, break of the day, enliven.

I see a heart full of love, 
With the gentleness of a dove.
Feel, in her eyes, March, 
September in her heart.

The Last Letter

Hey Mary Anne
Hows it going in the city
I am missing you a lot
I love you, And i know you miss me
I miss your love
I miss your care

I hope your shop is running good
Did you buy yourself a car
The colour, That you said you would
Look at the stars
Im not so far

There is something you must know
But I dont have much time to show
So then I wrote this last letter
And it has some of my soul
Im dying fast, I breathe my last
Its in my brain, Its gonna blast
Happend so fast.....

Hey Mary Anne
Before you read this I'll be gone
To the distant shore of heaven
Where I'll sit and write my songs
Girl dont you cry
I'll be alright

There is not much left to say
But babe whenever you feel lonely
You just look up here and pray
You'll here me sing
A voice within

Tear this letter once you'r done
Tear it to pieces, Let it burn
Release my soul that is in you
carry on life is so much fun
Now let me go, Just let me go
I'll await you in another world
In another world...

Your Whisper

You whispered in my ear,
a breathy secret, hushed.

“I love you”, you murmured.

I said nothing,
lost, in your arms,
I found a home. At last.

“I love you”, you said,
I said nothing,
lost in my thoughts,
I found peace. At last.

“I love you”, you said,
words failed me then.

They still do.

Song of the Loner

It’s lonely a cold night of rain
And I compose me a piece
From the pattering of drops
On the steel roof
With claps of thunderbolt
And swish of the wind

Of somebody next door who
Left somebody alone song!

The tap of my feet accord 
With the crack of my teeth
When there’s no one beside 
To drown my heart away
 A sonorous serenade
I croon into allegretto 
A mellifluous drone in heart
So sad and drear
 
Of somebody next door who
Left somebody alone song!

Chime me you night crickets
And buzzing beetle
A piece in the cold night rain 
To hype the heartbeat tempo
To wash the slumbering eyes
And feel forlorn at home
From the wailing pine
In the rush of wind
In that dark cold night rain

Of somebody next door who
Left somebody alone song!

Just My Song

I'm running across a tightrope of strings...
Making music with steps to the words I sing...
Each footprint a different sound, some happy
some sad...
But together they play a song to all the things
I've held and had...
It's a musical composition that doesn't miss a note...
A diary of me in song that resonates of love and hope...

Two -- Searching For A Song

As I search for the verses And look for the rhymes, I wonder if life Will give me the time To tell you the things I’d like you to know That will lead you to stay When you might want to go. So, sing me a melody, I will find the words. Come sing the song with me, Let your soul be heard. Let me always be there. Include me in your plan. Then we will remember Time we outran. All the words that I search for To say what I mean Get harder to find, Or, so it seems. Destiny brought us To this point in time. Can honesty answer Our questioning minds? So, sing me a melody, I will find the words. Come sing the song with me, Let your soul be heard. Let me always be there. Include me in your plan. Then we will remember Time we outran.

I like

I like , I like to hear you whispering in my ears
As my heart beats louder out of my chest
And on singing , I forget the world with its' fears
That birds fail to compete with you and stay at their 
nests

I like , I like to lose myself in your eyes
Taking my boat , sailing inside that sea
It brings anybody down in love , no body denies
I wanna go with you as faraway as we can flee

I like , I like to see your face , your smile
Cause it brings relief to my exhausted soul
I can't describe you , you have a unique style
Higher than human nature , No comparison at all

I like , I like to be forever with you
As loving you will always be my guiding candle
Enlightening future route to pass through
Without you , life burden is impossible to handle

Divine Song

Sing a song,
To woo you all night long.

The singer enrapturing and beautiful,
Sending her love for song.

To her audience,
Man to adore and so much more.

The serpent in the garden of Eden,
Temptation beyond compare.

Carefully sending her tonic soh fah,
Disguised as a contemporary song.

All night long the song is heard, 
Like the beautiful nightingale and song bird.

Caressing  the wind like a warm summer breeze,
God's love disguised yet heard, a divinity.

Concerto of the Enchanting Night

Concerto of the Enchanting Night
 Arabic Poem by: Fadhil Aziz Farman *
 Translated Into English by:
 Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk)
 =========================

You suggest the songs
And leave me deep
In the splendor of the rhythm and melody. 
Drag my day out of the dream to wakefulness 
I have not known 
But the philosophy of dreams 
In all my days.

You suggest the songs
And leave me floating in a wave of fragrance 
Showered down By Lynol Ritchie 
With his love songs 
Or by Yanni with his tunes.
 
And dance
Do the tango 
Do the waltz 
Do the ballet or the jerk dance
Dance as you please 
Or spin around the Earth-pole,
O symbol of amazing taste, 
Rouser of lightning in the sky,
And crown of all beauties.
 
Here I am intoxicated
By the melody pulsating in your figure 
And by the bashful roses 
On your cheeks,
O sweet wine in my chalice and my vats.
 
You suggest the songs
And at the end of the round
Put your head on my chest, 
O child of my poems, 
And listen to my heart singing them 
With the virgin tears of joy 
Flowing down the violin’s cheek.
 
You suggest the songs
You suggest the melody 
And hint the sweet words
They’ll come to you 
Then hold me to your chest like a child.
I will need your ear 
To whisper to you 
All that baffles my heart 
And my tongue 

You suggest the songs
And strew them
Such as roses 
On the desert of my life.
What remains for us 
Of all our years, 
But joy
Strewn like roses
And like dew
On the seconds?

Hearts and Flowers - Romanticism In Rime Royal

If roses alabaster white e'er deign
To cast in crystal eyes one purposed song,
Dare tenderly to grasp the bluest vein
O, golden tears, a reddened heart ere long.
For blown, a wind of breath, whisked far along
Does shimmer in all time stood silent--still,
And by the lunar light, a broken will.

Come morning, to the rose in bed, love spoke
A cantillation voiced in bluebird tongue
How doth thy petals rise with blood of oak?
How dost thy stem ascend the fairest rung?
On heights o' heaven hast the soul been hung
For all, for all, to bare no droplet spared
O Life, in alabaster love repaired.

- Aron Jacob

Forsaken Angel -WIP-

Lil white flakes falling to the ground,
Covering the dead roses all around.
Healing the wounds left by your knife,
Salvation for the poor, mourning girl's life.

Petals fall like dust from a forsaken angel's wings;
Beautiful like the song that my heart still brokenly sings.

She kneels beside an old gravestone,
Remembering the skies her heart had flown.
Now that heart lies broken,
As she cries over your love token.

Petals fall like dust from a forsaken angel's wings;
Beautiful like the song that my heart still brokenly sings.

Faith

I walk along the memories,
Side stepping the shadows.
Staying away from miseries,
Remembering what love knows.

Faith, you haven't forgotten.
Faith, you will turn your head.
Faith, you will look my way again.
Say that our love is not dead.

I hold the thought of embrace,
may I have another dance?
Take me to a happy place,
to once again romance.

Faith, you are still inspired.
Faith, you need me once more
Faith, you haven't forgotten
Say I'm what your living for.

I have faith you have not forgotten,
Your lips as they trace my kiss
I have faith our love is not broken
You know it is your love that I miss.

killed the ego in the alley

stopped the cross look 
when walking out & down the steps
(humming a song within),
did a little jig to miss the cracks when
progressing along the sidewalk
(making sure as to not “break momma’s
back),
sure was in his/her better Autumn 
dancing gear
(waiting for others with the energy---
full of song & love in the heart) &
there weren’t enough frowns in
the afternoon overcast that could
shed dark down upon her/his 
impending afternoon delight
(now the world is said oyster if said
eater digs the oysters),
kicking her/his kicks like it’s going
out of style, ipod ringing a special
rhythm (new favorite song---connecting
him/her with everyone),
don’t need to be in front or even part of
a crowd when the selves when the 
selves are getting down
(making a scene in order to be seen),
when the sun shone down &
park benches full of folks
start to come alive,
come alive, come alive,
come live, come alive!
s/he paid tribute to all the artists that
s/he adored when
s/he killed that ego in the alley on
her/his way to work,
falling in love with those dancing
with her/him, casting out those 
trying to do him/her in & for a split
second (long enough to set a precedent
for a lifetime in perspective),
started to really enjoy 
life.

Piano Girl

    PIANO GIRL
So like unto a song I'd play
an iv'ry pressed by me
cascading through a polished night
you are the melody.

Our summer rain still sings of you
such notes; they blend so well;
into my breast where breathes the rhyme
of all the words I tell.

You'll always be that vital part
each thought I ever write,
and like the keys in harmony
the song you are, sounds right.

The opening of me is you,
and overflows the wine
aged to perfection in the dark
to bring each song of mine,

Oh! No, they are not ever mine,
admitedly, they're yours,
and when the chorus of them comes,
like summer rain, it pours.

I've heard you singing to a song,
piano girl, your sound
remains in everything I write,
not lost, but never found.

LADY IN RED (Rubaiyat)

He always loved the song 'Lady In Red'
so I decided to mess with his head,
The dress I wore showed cleavage and some legs
was flaming red with strands of silver thread.


I pinned my hair up with some silver pegs
and took a drink down to the very dregs,
The music's on, his song begins to play
he looks at me with eyes that truly begs.


He took me in his arms we danced away
he held me tightly wishing I would stay,
I felt his body warming to my touch
as on his heaving chest my head I lay.


But now I'm thinking, this is just too much
so I stepped back and glanced down at my watch,
And said I have to go, excuse me please
the shock showed as his jaws fell down a notch.


And as I gave his hand a gentle squeeze
the twinkle in my eyes made him say "Freeze,"
He kissed my lips and led me to the bed
and said "Lady in red, you're such a tease."

A Song of Love

A song of love is a sad song You'll remember the heartaches that you've been keeping for so long You realize that loving him was very wrong And now you're trying to pretend that you are strong A song of love is nothing but a memory You're trying to recall only the good side of you're story And now your tears are falling and your face turns to worry Because even now you still care for him in any way A song of love is not about happiness It is all about heartbreak and feeling of loneliness Because a song of love is made to fill the emptiness Of a broken heart that is always warm less

Re-post of Come Inside- Stanzas Added by Richard Lamoureux

(Eileen)
Your heavy heart is weary, worn
Bloody and bruised, it’s fiercely torn
To Loneliness, a vow you've sworn
To dwell in night without a morn
Come inside

To live and love, you've lost your will 
Of sorrow’s cup you've had your fill
Desire’s longing, quiet…still
Heart frozen by rejection’s chill
Come inside

Chorus
Come inside my life, feel now the fire
Come inside my heart, dip in desire
Come inside my soul, to love aspire
Come inside my mind, let me inspire

(Richard)
Let love’s essence, flow through your veins 
Experience true peace again 
Live in a world devoid of pain 
Find shelter from the pouring rain 
Come inside 

To live and love, you'll know the thrill 
Of blissful cup, you'll drink your fill 
Desire quenched, within my will 
In the calm, let your heart be still 
Come inside 

(Eileen)
Chorus
Come inside my life, feel now the fire
Come inside my heart, dip in desire
Come inside my soul, to love aspire
Come inside my mind, let me inspire

Refrain
Come
Come
Come inside my body, come inside
Come and dip inside my pleasure’s tide
Come inside my body, come inside
Come glide into heaven, come abide
Come
Come
Come…..I N S I D E

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

Got a tune in my head that won’t go away
I’ve been singing it the entire day
Called the radio station, asked them to play
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”

It came out in nineteen sixty-one
I was only eight, but I heard it some
My sister had it on a black vinyl forty-five
The Shirelles made that song come alive

It was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King
It is one of those songs you want to sing
The Motown sound was being born
Those soul sisters could sing up a storm

Maybe I was too young to rock and roll
But that song sure does have a lot of soul
If you don’t remember or you never knew
I have included the chorus for you!

“Tonight you’re mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the look of love is in your eyes
But will you still love me tomorrow?”

I'm Her Man

She saw me standing there.
Like a knight in shining armor.
Like standing in cool fresh water.

I'm her man..

After all that we've been through.
I know that I was made for her.
I know her love was made for me.
And we were like two lost lovers.

I'm her man..

Then she saw me standing there.
Like a peasant without a sword.
Like a king without a castle.
She wrapped her arms around me.

I'm her man....

Oh! pretty nature
This is eye-catcher
On the wet, wet grass
There were few dew drops

Reeling, in pleasure
Selling, our leisure
Rolling, in great measure
This is big pleasure
O, I love this season
It's spring,

A letter for you(2)

You must be patient. Look the world and don’t say anything
look at you :The language is source of misunderstanding;
And your rebel golden hair is waving through  
The maze that is golden, too: it will remind you…
I love the round of the wind in the maze.
I love the sound of the breeze, while I gaze
A playtful bird in a the sky an other bird whom run 
-Karen calls this ,challenge, the moments of sun…
Bogardo`s song: “Forests` Fairy, be child again and play with me…”
I saw a green kitten that grew as cat whetting her claws on a tree;
Then ,as Green tigress running a stag in the silent green ;
Impressing dress, swinging long dress lovely waving so green…
This dream ,Daniel ,you may translate at the court of your Queen
You must come back at the same poem,at the same time
I’ll wait for you in the same blessed unforgettable rhyme
Happiness always tip-toes and suddenly brings 
Not only words of optimism, but certain things
Ready to fly with us above the Fallen Crest 
Brave Caryl, the most verses usually unwritten rest
Outside the entrance with many mirrors and wonders.
I’m trying to reply with verses to wonderful senders:
I don’t know why your names as fresh as a daisy                                               
Sound me so familiar that they make me so crazy
To think I learnt your poems by heart once, in the past.
From my monastery called tomorrow, covered by light’s dust
Michael ,you wake up a dream whose echoing like rain 
In my heart's joyous exile, has broken that  chain:
Rapping, tapping, slowly entered my prayer
Taking part to the  River Prayer, my  dear;
But don’t bet on me, because I don’t know if It is written
In the forest to find what you search: I am a silent birch
With the inner song and the feelings of our High Church.
I am the happy lark who meets you, old pelerine Mark
I found …!I found good earth. I’m resting now on this Ark.
From swirled clouds ,the splendid lasting mark
Is hold in frozen seasons and forests dark?
As secret flame of love of life ,of kiss  Of Mark 
Admiring the flight of birds and, the song of the lark;
I stayed a lot and meditated in a hot milk afternoon:
Sue’s  dunes like shapes of acratered 
moon .

You are the love song of my soul

The pulse of you slowly comes my way
It enters my ear and fills me up each day
The cadence brings a smile to my face
I breathe in the tempo and it finds its place

You are the rhythm of my life
You are the sound that beats my heart
You are the harmony of my mind
You are the love song of my soul

The keys are placed without a word
It’s the greatest sound I’ve ever heard
The horn of your spirit is in full bloom
The feeling is overwhelming and I’m now in tune

You are the rhythm of my life
You are the sound that beats my heart
You are the harmony of my mind
You are the love song of my soul

The strings are strummed with your pick
The waves of melody make me tick
It touches me and I’m simply overcome
The music plays forever in me like a drum

It isn't fair to her that I still think of you

It isn’t fair to her that I still think of you


No, it’s really not fair to her		
That I still think of you.
When I thought about forever,		
I used to think of you.
I was ready to settle down;		
I thought that you were too…
But when I saw you play around,	
I knew that we were through.

When I later met another		
(to help get over you),
I was happy to be with her.		
I’d gotten over you.
We ended up getting married,		
And we were happy, too.
But it might have been too hurried--	
I’m not quite over you.

She didn’t lie to me; you did.  
She didn’t cheat on me; you did.
She didn’t abandon me; you did.  
So I should be thinking of her; not you!

I know I’m better off with her,		
Than I once was with you.
And it’s really not fair to her		
For me to think of you.
So when I hold her close tonight	,	
And just think of us two,
Then everything will be all right.		
I won’t think about you.

She didn’t lie to me; you did.  
She didn’t cheat on me; you did.
She didn’t abandon me; you did.  
So I will be thinking of her; not you!

EXULTING LOVE IN VERSE-LGT

Isn't love a warm glow that puts smiles on sadness-ridden faces?
It's that delightful feeling exploding inside and brightening up 
the day of the hungry, the sick, the abused and the forsaken ones!


Isn't love giving of oneself without expecting reciprocation?
It's selflessness giving hope to heavy hearts when despair
is read across their distraught faces longing for consolation!


Isn't love an act of compassion towards those who have little or nothing?
It's clothing them and feeding them until they regain lost strength;
it's rebuilding what was destroyed by Nature or Man so ravaging!


Isn't love hugging that child who has no one to hush his cry?
It's the kindness of someone's heart that stops his tears;
it's the tenderness of words he hears in a sweet lullaby!      


Isn't love reaching out to others and make a difference?
it's offering everything to wipe out disease and poverty;
it's this poet's small and humble gift exulting love in verse!

Ode to a Canary

His name was Mr Cinnamon
and he loved to sing.

Lost among the masses yet within the throng
he lifted his head and began a song.
Without thought the mass would open and part
the burdened would feel an uplifted heart.
The songs, each one, were simple and pure
and none could escape the magical allure
of the one who sang
the one who went
by such a simple name
He never fought
Girls flocked around him
He was humble
He only wanted one thing

His name was Mr Cinnamon
and he loved to sing

Alabama Snow

The long never ending landscape of southern Alabama never runs cold. Today it decided to. The wind was at 
ease and all the snow flakes were about. The cold ground shuddered beneath me but I could tell it was a good 
kind of shiver. The snow fell down in a hurry yet it still took it's time swaying in the wind. All the snowflakes 
danceing around soon started a low tune far off on the wind. The band played a song that the world has been 
playing for centerys. One of love and peace. One that has no bounds or experation date. The song was cold 
enough to freeze the earth but here I stood warm as I basked in my happieness. The world seemed still as the 
orchestra played it's beautiful tune. The wind swirling and twirling as if it were a finely tuned violin. I couldn't 
bare to close my eyes for it was just to beautiful to look away from. As the wind picked up in it's gusts the 
snow felt ever so heavier and the skys begain to melt the love within the snow as all the snowflakes fell down 
as rain. "What a beautiful conversion" crossed my thaughts. The snowed over feild grew dreadfully quiet as the 
beautiful tune escaped into the wind. This was when I sudenly realized I was soaked and freezing. Almost killed 
me but I steped inside away from the Alabama snow. But I knew she'd come back for me.

Faster I Plead

My heart was beating slowly
To the beat of a solemn song
Going through the motions
Not knowing something was wrong

Then I heard a song bird
Crying from afar
Will I go and save her
And her message that I heard

She was a test sent for me
To get me on the path
To start my heart beating
For her song will set me free

My heart starts beating fast
At the rhythm in her songs
She sings them only for me
For a love that's meant to last

Silly Little Girl

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I'm not perfect. I'm only human.
When I have a bad day, I get moody and
Sometimes, I take it out on you.
But I do the best I can do.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I write too much, but I can't stop.
I refuse to pretend to be someone I'm not.
When I'm home alone, my favorite thing to do
Is turn up my radio, sing in my brush, and dance around the room.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I have a million different dreams.
I want to be a million things.
I need ten more lifetimes
To accomplish what I have in mind.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like. 
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I sing too much and dance in the car.
My friends are my world and we usually go too far,
But we're just silly little kids who love to have fun.
We won't let your dark clouds cover our sun.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I wish I could change the problems I see,
But I'm just one person. I'm only me.
I'm still going to work and I will try,
But I need you to help me kiss these problems goodbye.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I'm the biggest dork you will ever meet.
I laugh too much and love to sleep.
I have my own style and I hate my hair.
If you don't like me, that's ok. I really don't care.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

REPENTANCE

Your touch I feel subsiding 
Your presence no longer near. 
Tell me why the one I love 
So faint I cannot hear.

Your silence is so deafening 
I strive to hear your voice. 
The once delightful melody 
Is now a silent noise.

I long to hear your laughter. 
Your song I grieve today. 
The loving sound of guidance 
Not here, but gone away.

My loneliness consumes me. 
Repose within is spent. 
Until your voice I hear again 
My withered heart laments

What have I done to lose you? 
Where in our love did fall? 
I must have caused between us 
Transgressions after all.

I heeded not your warning 
With sin you cannot live. 
Repentance is my only hope 
Will you, with love, forgive?

I knew your love unblemished 
No spot with you reside. 
But loneliness now bruises 
My heart, with sin I hide.

I must regain your presence 
Confess my hidden sin. 
Wash clean my heart with love's refrain 
And bring your song back in.

Any Better Than This

I met a charming girl during church Sunday--

She was the kind of girl that I’d like to stay.

Being a gentleman, I did nothing amiss

I didn’t think life could get any better than this.

 

Offered to see her home, it was on my way.

She gave me a pretty smile and she said okay.

Walking and talking with her, I think I found my bliss.

I didn’t think life could get any better than this.
 

(Chorus)

She invited me to stick around a while.

How could I say no to such a pretty smile.

Minutes turned to hours, days to months and years;

Dates to going steady, then wedding toasts and cheers.

 

We showed off our baby girl at the church Sunday.

The pastor said the words to help her on her way.

Holding my two girls real close, I’m sure I found by bliss;

And I still don’t think that life gets any better than this.

Love Scene

We separated like wave and shore
Leaving our feelings bare like sand
I heard goodnight and replied in kind
There was a love song humming on my mind
And I longed to be a butterfly up in the sky
Carried in the cuddle of the wind anywhere
Far enough from fret and tear.
I turned from constructivism to solitaire
And the love song in my mind keeps humming there.

A shadow across the light at edge of eye
A shuffle, a tap, a heart summoning sigh
A form between a drape and wall
A neglige like wings defining the butterfly
The game was done
The call of manhood from its cave found light
And with the silence the eyes told delight.
Appealing womanhood textured by night
My life is the opera, how ravishing the beauty of her eyes

She showered him, he showered her
With praises tender as kisses, with sentiments
Sweet as the melt of chocolate in caresses
And in their tenderness we were born again
A long time coming
To the spray of the shower out of the rain
How the bed like a calyx welcomed us
How your body like petals responded to the chorus
Of drizzling sunlight from my fingertips
Of cooling balm in the wind on the moon's soft lips
Every part of your body was an anthem of praise
My love was fount springing up like eternity of days

I want to love her always like that night
The groom longed to ravish the bride again
To lavish on her kisses suckling her toes
And play love's concerto on her legs
Adante, adante, adante says the opening thighs
Allegro, allegro, allegro says desire
And I heard the crescendo breaking in my heart
When our mouth met in tender places and long again
O I long again for the silk sweet of velvet softness
For the uncorrupted innocense of flesh with flesh 
As the wave rolls in to cover the naked shore.

Candlelight

It’s late at night by candlelight while I’m sitting here at home 
picking on this old guitar without you in my arms.  
The lightning flashed and something crashed and 
all the lights went dim – ain’t it funny how 
the storm outside is how I feel within.  
I don’t know how it happened that you 
up and went away and don’t know how 
the weather works on any given day.

                                  Refrain: 
And all I know is the wind still blows no matter what I do 
even when I’m picking on these six strings without you.  
As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find 
if it would bring you back to me. 
 

Every time the light goes out something 
changes in my mind; the love we had not long ago 
is drifting down the line.  Like a rolling train 
in a tunnel made inside a mountain high; 
I feel so lost without you now it feels like I could die.  
Right here in my sadness and these low down hurting ways; 
this candle fire lifts me up higher than all these rainy days.   

                                 Refrain: 
And all I know is the wind still blows no matter what I do 
even when I’m picking on these six strings without you.  
As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find
if it would bring you back to me.  


I sure hope that the light returns 
in my house and in my soul; it’s hard to see 
right front of me ever since you hit the road.  
It seems all I have are these memories and melodies 
and dreams; and every night the lights go out 
you’re all that I can see.  I’m like a blind man 
in the darkness all my colors turned to gray 
so I’ll keep this candle burning 
hoping you’ll come back some day.  

                             Refrain: 
And all I know is the wind still blows no matter what I do 
even when I’m picking on these six strings without you.  
As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find 
if it would bring you back to me. 


As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find 
from now until the end of time 
if it would bring you back to me.

Love Song

Open your ears As your eyes let down their tears Upon hearing my song for you, A song of a love that is so true. This is my love song. It's not that long, But it does portray The feelings that I cannot say. So, to you, I will sing Of the love that will always ring In my heart, my dove. Listen as I sing this song of love, A song to describe you And all that you do. My ears will ring And my heart will sing At the thought of seeing you. I only wish you'd love me too. And now I must go, I will see you again, my wonderful doe. My time is nigh, I love you, and good-bye.

If You Leave

If you leave ...
    I promise not to blame .
I do have feelings ,
    but you don't feel the same .

So if you leave ...
    I'll watch you go .
I've been through a lot this week .
    and you don't even know .

So please do leave ...
    If you don't like this place .
I've tried for years to remove your mask ,
    That you use to hide your face .

So if your going to leave ...
     Forget about the fire we lit .
I've already killed the fire .
    When I found out what you did .

The theory of a plaintive Music

The equanimity of the day reached beyond my solitary realm,
As if the tune of demise fathomed the doleful heart of mine;
Escaped from the autistic aftermath blamed by mordacious charm,
Healed beyond charade of some credulous bonds -
As if the tune of avow choired with the tune of demise,
Crowning an arena slewed by the tune of ravine;
Vehement boo outstayed by the tune of shush,
I composed the time with the music of lenience -
Odes so lined are tuned with feigned mash. 

A ho-hum of hilarity hemmed in beyond my soulful eyes,
As if the malign sang by the oneirisms couched yearses;
Once paroled from the time, that seemed so dour, by the unforeseen lies,
Parroted beyond acme of agape love –
As if the song of idiom sinned by the song sung by malign,
Ceased a chronicle defied by the song of revival,
Eyeses esteemed bequeathed by the song of rash,
I composed the journey with the song of lenience –
Odes so lined are sung with bereft gush.

The Key

At the gateway
Hands upon the lock
Key glistens 
Dangled above the heart

A distant moment
Brought before instantly
Desire morphed to despair
Isolation endangered by compassion
Your artic world activates meltdown
Hysteria dominates your consciousness

At the gateway
Hands upon the lock
Key glistens
Dangled above the heart

Whence are the origins?
What is the endurance breaking point?
Can a labyrinth obliterate fantasy?
Does determination sustain?
 Who is braving suffering?
How entwined is fate?

At the gateway
Hands upon the lock
Key glistens
Dangled above the heart

Assurance regains authority
Analyzing all causatums 
Decipher the formulas
Plot your scheme points
Attempt the equation
Commence the quandary 

At the gateway
Hands upon the lock
Key glistens
Dangled above the heart

Panic no more
Hearken to your quintessence
Purity glows beneath the key
Acceptance exists in the core
Devotion presses upon your gate
Confidante of your soul awaits

At the gateway 
Hands upon the lock
Key glistens
Dangled above the heart

At the gateway
Hands upon broken lock
Key glistens
Dangled above your heart

Disconnection

I'm…
so tired of my heart 
breaking

I'm …
so tired of my hands 
shaking

I'm so tired of my mind
racing

I'm through pacifying 
my disconnection

Do I only love you for who you used to be?
When you said you'd wait for all eternity?
Did you drink away every memory of me?
How am I not everything you’ll ever need?!

I've had to sit down and write this 
to tell you the words i can't speak
When I'm around you now i feel weak
I'm drowning in my disconnection

Where did he go??
You are not the soul I used to know
Where did your memories go?!

Why has the meaning disappeared…
So suddenly
Now I realize I should too

You act like you remember nothing 
I can tell that’s what I mean to you
After all I’ve done for you
All I want is to be emotionless too

In the end I guess it’s what I love the most about you…..
Your disconnection.

The Greatest Song

Name of song artist: George Harrison   -   Song Title: "Isn't It A Pity."

Poem below:

The greatest song of all time
shows how all people are blind
we either can't see the forest thru the trees
or we simply don't care about anyone's needs

The greatest day we will find
is when we unfold the love in our mind
when we cure violence of all kind
we can peacefully learn to unwind

What greater deed can there be
when all people can finally see
the words sung in such a great song
It's a pity, you don't sing along

Cliches or Where have You Been All My Life

When I was young, I fantasized of the girl I’d like to find:
A certain look, a sense of style, enlightened education,
Alluring eyes, a charming smile, and some sophistication.
But over time I realized she was only in my mind.

Lonely years passed, I compromised, and left my dream behind.
Met some with looks, others with style—even sophistication.
But I never could find, through error and trial, just the right combination.
Just existing, I felt demoralized, in a sorry state of mind.

One day by chance, I met this girl…sort of what I had in mind.
The way she looked, I realized, just fit my illustration—
As if the dream I’d idolized was brought into creation.
What could I say, to meet the girl that I’d always hoped to find?

Pardon the clichés, but I have to say 
“Where have you been all my life?”
I know we’ve just met, and you don’t know me yet, 
But what are you doing the rest of your life?

She rolled her eyes, but then she smiled, as she seemed to see the light.
We talked a while, then talked some more; got her address and her phone.
Since then I’ve seen her a whole lot more.  I no longer felt alone.
When I proposed, she said with a smile “I think I’ve found  my ‘Mister Right’ .

Pardon the clichés, but I have to say 
“Where have you been all my life?”
I know we’ve just met, and you don’t know me yet, 
But what are you doing the rest of your life?

lover's lullaby

MY LOVER’S LULLABY
Her song is of the night so sweet
Her feel is of a gentle breeze
A song that lifts lashes to freeze
O! My love your song make me glow
Your night fragrance makes me a watchman
Sleep my love sleep let your heart beat of me
Let your love pour out like breads bam
Your braid my night toy and I flow 

His song arouse my tenderness
His touch at night gives me freshness
O! My love you are my pomegranate
Your lips ah! Your chest is of magnate
How I die for you to live my love
Touch me and feed of me your dove
Love me as you‘ve always done
Hurry and tenderly before the day’s brightness

Let my love be your night light
My love I see you clear and bright
To you I sing an ever-loving ode
And your children are mine till old
He is my pride and diction
She is real and not a fiction
My love is her hymn and hum	
My touch is his dream and we zmmmmm

THE COYOTE SONG

       THE COYOTE SONG
I'm just a poor lonesome cowboy.
Ridin' my pinto, out on the prairie.
I'm Roundin' up these longhorn, all day long,
Me and my pinto, and my rusty six-gun.

I love a redhead from Philly.
She got some eyes, that really turn me on.
She plays with all the  cowboys all night long,
Guess I'll shoot myself with my rusty six-gun.

Sing me a sad song Coyote!
Sing a sad song for me.
Yippy-Ki-Yo! Coyote!
Sing your sad song for me.

I'm just a poor lonesome cowboy.
Livin life in my Levys til its done.
I know that redhead won't remember my name,
But I'll always have my old rusty six-gun.

Sing me a sad song Coyote!
Sing a sad song for me.
Yippy-Ki-Yo! Coyote!
Sing your sad song for me.

I love your howlin, but your sound is as sad as can be.
If I had my druthers, I'druther have that red head sing to me.

Sing me a sad song Coyote!
Sing a sad song for me.
Yippy-Ki-Yo! Coyote!
Sing your sad song for me.

Yippy-Ki-Yo! coyote!
Yippy-KiYo! For me!

The Millionth Dollar 

Charlaxes Fables 

Some people live in misery afraid to spend a dollar bill is one a friend but he just 
won't let it go. The man walks or rides his bike even in the snow not using public 
transportation anywhere he goes. A Child is young too young to knoe just what 
money's for. She takes the dollar in her hand and keeps it never spending it and 
never letting go. 
Song 1001 
Aern't ewe the one that eye love 
Aern't ewe the love the only love that eye have 
Aern't ewe the one that eye love 
Aern't ewe the reason this man gets up 
Aren't ewe the love that eye have 
Aern't ewe the purple cloud 
Aern't ewe the heart of the rain 
Aren't ewe the name in the sky? 
Aren't you the song 1001? 
Aern't eye the one? 
The millionth dollar has been spent the millionth tear eye cried the millionth time 
eye tried to make a song was this one number one thousand one. Time will wait 
for no one let us rule the time with love.

My Heart Sees Not Or Hears

I hear the song of the ocean,
It wafts beyond the dune;

It floats along across the sands
And ebbs and flows in tune.

I feel its rhythm of motion
In the breeze blowing in;

And the dancing seagrass floweth
To its gay lyric spin.

I hear the song of the ocean,
Sweet notes upon these ears;

It beckons with soft white hands,
But my heart sees not or hears.

It is lost unto the notion
of love that might have been;

It beats its rhythm and knoweth
No greater song hath men.

Dreams

This might not be a poem. I do not know what it is that is that a poem makes,
but it will have love, this one - this one that I'm making. And love...
Two swans with their long necks intertwined and a ring
I'd like to put on your finger sum' day. Hm, and also that song which reminds me
That you are not here and that makes me ask "Maybe I love you."

Or maybe it's "Baby, I love you." Let us begin with a question,
What if dreams are the glimpses of the other lives that we are living
In those meta-universes and elseworlds whose existence we've only pondered?

What does it matter? what if I say that I've dreamt of us together.
And to be quite blunt, I was sure I was pleased, and you seemed quite content.
I held your hand, or rather we've held each other. 

"Fingers lodged like branches in the river" and it was no burden. The burden is in waking up.

I wake up and that song plays on the radio, and you are not with me.
But "Baby, I love you." I wonder if you've dreamt of us two... 

too...

Wouldn't it be a bother if dreams were more than dreams and What we've seen
would be just as real as cake. I can be the eggs and you be the flower.

We're all we need to be sleeping awake. 

Then I remember that song. 
It tells me you're not here.
It plays on and on as I rise from my bed,
What does it mean to wake up alone,
to face the fear that you've been dreaming all on your own?

Come Running

You're incredible, in all you do
So spectacular, this is true
We're inseparable, I'm here to stay
I think I might, love you today

Yesterday, I fell in love with you
This much is true
Want to spend my life with you
Yes I do

You come a running when I call
You come a running when I fall
You come a calling when I'm down
You come a calling let's settle down

My love is here for you
My heart is too
My mind craves for you
Your soul too

I write songs for you
when you're blue
I sing along with you
It's deja vu 

Yesterday, I fell in love with you
This much is true
Want to spend my life with you
Yes I do

I'll come a running when you call
I'll come a running when you fall
I'll come calling when your down
I'll come calling let's settle down

Lady-Luck Stomped Out

I was riding a streak with the dice in my fist.   
Lady Luck was with me, seemed  I couldn’t miss!
Then this babe caught my eye,--I crapped out time and again.  
Lady Luck stomped out, when True Love walked in.

I was anchoring third with a pair of aces.  
Going for the split,  needed tens or faces.
But when ‘you know who’ sat down next to me, 
The blackjack dealer dealt a two and a three!

Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in. 
She gave me that look.  I sent her my best grin.
I’m gonna go bust if I see her again.  
Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in.

I put a dollar chip on every black and red. 
Three spins in a row came up zeros instead.
The old croupier said:  “Son I’ve seen this before.  
You better take that gal to the chapel next door!”

Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in. 
She gave me that look.  I sent her my best grin..
I’m gonna lose my shirt when I see her again.  
Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in.

I kept the Queen of Hearts and folded all my hands, 
And never set foot in a casino again.
When the urge to play overpowers me –
It's Yahtzee, Trouble, and Monopoly.

(To add insult to injury, our kids always win, you know!)

Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in. 
She gave me that look.  I sent her my best grin..
I haven’t won a hand since that fatal day when 
Lady Luck stomped out and True Love walked in.

When He Died For You and Me-.. Were You There?

Sometimes it causes me to tremble
When I remember that country preacher
Telling the story of Jesus
Being crucified when I was little
I felt bad that He did nothing wrong.

And in college,
 I learned this song 
A Negro Spiritual
Were you there?
When singing this song 
It caused my voice teachers’
Body to tremble 
As the vibrato spinned
As the words sprang out
About the story once heard
Of how my savior died,
And how he on was lied. 

And now that I’m older
And I’ve gained knowledge
And now grown
And I’m on my own
With no one but the
 Lord to depend on

The story means more to me
Than when I was that little girl
Without a care in the world 
When that country preacher
Told it about how the nails
Pierced him far from gently
How the crown of thorns 
Was crushed blood vessels
In his head.

How he knew he had
To face the sinful world
Just like how I know
I have to face it because
God is calling me 
To assist in ministry

I want to be more like Jesus
Everyday and in every way.
It deeply convicts me
To see on movies
And to visualize in my mind
What He did at Calvary
That day at any given time
It causes me to tremble
And tears to fall.

I know in my heart 
I have no other choice 
Than to accept His call
And give my all and all
To gain victory for His people
Because He died for it 
Already. 

It doesn’t matter
If you were there when he died
He just wants you
To know that He did
And all you have to do 
Is come to Him like a little kid
And he will do the rest
This is what He does best.

I hope that it causes you to tremble
Whether or not we resemble
Each other in Him we are all
Sisters and brothers
Were you there, then?
It doesn’t matter
Be here now
He died and rose on the third day
For those who were then
And now trembling in sin.

The Third Fall of Lorelei

Perched on a stony gray shore I await
The next wayward sailors; I decree their fate
From the lofty Rhine cliffs did I long ago fall
Now passersby answer my beckoning call

Though hardy they be, my song is yet stronger
My melodies sweet, my endurance longer
Through deepest of waters they rarely shall pass
Once caught in my spell their soul is held fast
For, betrayed by my only true love, I avenge
By stealing dear lads from their lovers and friends

The vessel I see on high wind does approach
Threatening the reef 'neath my feet to encroach
The better for me to draw near weary men
Who once resting their heads will not venture again

But, lo, what is this that I see at the helm? 
A man whose possession would rule any realm
The fire that alights me has so permeated
The fury is gone that I once would have meted
Instead, I desire the strength of his arms
The taste of his lips and the wealth of his charms

It is puzzling, 'tis true, my unlikely behavior
Still, somehow I know that this man is my savior
As I depart from the shoreline and swim for the bow
I am drawn by the call of his siren song now

This poem was inspired by "Die Lorelei", by Heinrich Heine, which was, itself, based on the 
German legend of a siren that lured sailors to their doom on the banks of the Rhine river.

The unsung song

I have a song in my heart, 
that has yet to be given notes.
Notes that should kiss piano keys,
and give wings to grace.
Commit wind to pass over
tender chords, and reveal
her beauty to the world.
She inspires tones that 
whisper in my mind.
She alone can sing them.
Only her voice will do.

A Song for My Beloved

Our Beloved returns        with a mighty entourage
his banner men ride before him
             they are swifter than stallions 
and their weapons          as the talons of eagles
their chariots are laden full
             amphora of the reddest wine
and full of the oils of gladness
This is the story                of everlasting love
written within the hearts of mankind
             a story of promises kept
of exclusive devotion without equal
             of it's engagement and preparations 
it's unity realized     and it's fidelity measureless 
a vision of excellence      is my beloved
He is the color        of the crystalline stones
forged in the hearts of the mountains
his transparency    glows in it's intensity
He is the rising             of the tides
and the canopy    that resides under the vault of heaven 
his affections call out       and reach into every dark place
and we ourselves          are held in his eternal embrace
There is to us   but one King     and our hearts
bow before his majestic countenance 
He has built a great house
many have     been employed          in it's construction
A place for rejoicing     endlessly
every fine and desirable element
                           fill his treasuries and chambers 
He cast out his lines           one by one
and baited his nets       with the words of Love
He drew us from the sea           and salted us         
with his own expressions 
and set before us         a golden bowl and chalice
filled to the brim      and overflowing
and we are faint       faint with Love
I am comely    and clothed with desire
and my esteem            is in his exquisiteness 
the flawless         reflection        of his divinity 
He has openly            shown his faithfulness
our affections as the rushes    of rivers , waterfalls
and rain in the spring         of the old growth forests
and it's age as old          as the cosmos
whose beginning is as       unknowable as it's end
Come my Beloved      and collect us together
gather the great feast           of which every bird
under heaven will partake 
be swift upon the mountains   for we are captives
in a colossal wilderness    filled with the desert winds 
held only by the golden chords 
and the silver sounds    of your own declarations
                   of Love

His Last Love Song

His wife left him in intensive care
After saying her last good-bye
She just couldn’t stay with him in there
For the moment he would die

They were married for over thirty years
He wrote lyrics for love songs
Words that would bring women to tears
To a beat you can sing along

Her best friend sat with him instead
So he wouldn’t have to die all alone
She leaned down and whispered near his head
“Please write for me a last love song”

“Write for me a love song, before you pass away
Your soul may go to heaven, but your words right here can stay
Write as if the romance we did not share, was a part of our life
I wasn’t burdened by matrimonial cares and you did not love your wife”

They were lovers in thought alone
Never unfaithful to their spouse
Often in each other’s home
But never alone within the house

She always thought his songs were written
With thoughts of her in mind
Especially those about lovers smitten
The Romeo and Juliet kind

Though they never spoke to each other of love
She could see it in his eyes
She wondered what he was thinking of
And what he felt deep down inside

“Write for me a love song, before you pass away
Your soul may go to heaven, but your words right here can stay
Write as if the romance we did not share, was a part of our life
I wasn’t burdened by matrimonial cares and you did not love your wife”

He died later that night
Without ever waking again
With the only one in sight
His wife’s very best friend

She shed a tear for the loss
Of a friend and fantasy
Pleading on his death bed
“Please write a last love song for me”

She reached inside her pocketbook
For a Kleenex to wipe her eyes
And found a piece of paper
Much to her surprise

Written in his handwriting
Was a note of just fourteen words
“There is an unsung love song in my desk,
Your request I have heard”

“Write for me a love song, before you pass away
Your soul may go to heaven, but your words right here can stay
Write as if the romance we did not share, was a part of our life
I wasn’t burdened by matrimonial cares and you did not love your wife”

Our Love Is Music

In this perfect harmony of love there is nothing else I could ask for.
At times the choir gets to us with too many high notes.
Nothing will end our song 
Because in this duet our love runs strong
There are times when things go wrong in our love song
In which we wish things were accessible.
But trust me our song will continue to play
Like a track on repeat.
In this perfect harmony it’s just you and me.

You Light Up My Radar

There’s something inside me that knows when you’re nearby.
You cannot sneak up on me; it’s funny when you try.
There must be something in the air, a noise without a sound,
‘Cause you light up my radar whenever you’re around.

I can taste your presence before you pass the door,
And I can smell you’re essence from clear across the floor.
I can always feel where you are--we’re mutually bound,
‘Cause you light up my radar whenever you’re around.

Chorus (repeated to fade after 4th verse):
The lightest caress of your touch makes my ringers ring
The first impression of your voice makes me want to sing
The very first hint of your taste or scent makes my motor start
‘Cause even the smallest whisper of your presence melts my heart.

I don’t need to see you, to feel when you are there.
There’s just something about you that makes me so aware.
No matter how lost you think you are, with me you’re always found--
‘Cause you light up my radar whenever you’re around.

Decades passed together.  There weren’t enough years.
Though love may be forever, we buried you in tears.
Your presence seems everywhere, without a sight or sound,
You still light up my radar ‘cause you’re always around.

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.

A beautiful stranger

Who is this remarkable image I see with slight of joy and perfection 
I was struck I see you dancing in the flashing lights with desire shinning brightly 
It's like a work of art I'm sprung hypnotized by the beauty 
Preview quite romantic who knew you'd be so lovely maybe I'm nieve for wanting you 
Did not know that a love could be so bad but feel so good 
As the dance floor flashes I'm trapped in another world I envy your perfect kind of life 
This beautiful stranger can not wait to be in your arms of passion 
And your heart like stone struck me in vain this beautiful stranger I long

Ascending Amygdala

The human being…
Who is worthy to bestow this title or its meaning…?
Mortal beginners naming us damned sinners…
Begotten is this son; created in the image, the human being the Holy Grail…
Inquisitions; manipulations cloaking divine knowing with a consuming veil…

My soul sings the truth of your wisdom…
Joyous the song of the kingdom…
I breathe you in from the breeze; touching your essence communing with trees…
I have been alive here before…
Sailing the seas while walking the shores…
Feeling the wealth of love and life all the while considered poor…

Advance intuition understanding the power of cognition…
Focused attention paired with reasoning, will and concentration…
Abilities from the divine; creating the human magician…
Thwarted from dogmatic idiocies…
Perception of proper perspective; Cloned are individual and collective frequencies…
Reality manifesting from our visuals and emotion feelings…
Hence the need for spirit based emotional healing…

My soul sings from trusting your wisdom…
Joyous the song of the kingdom…
We have been lied to about god, now is my own divine conceiving…
I breathe you in from gratitude, giving and receiving…
I have been alive here before; making green tea, cleansing soiled floors…
Feeling the wealth of love and life all the while considered poor…

I am that I am…
Spirit, light and matter…
Free to be me; using my inner eye to see…
Living from passion love and enthusiasm…
Remaining unattached to the created human cataclysm…

My soul sings from knowing your wisdom…
Joyous the song of the kingdom…
Individualized drops of the divine ocean
I breathe you in from making sacred loves unconditional devotion…
I have been alive here before; walking on water, pray believing…
Feeling the wealth of love and life all the while considered poor…

Slow Dance

“Dance with me” he says.
She takes his hand
And follows him
To the middle of the dance floor.
He brings her closer to him,
Her arms wrap around his neck,
His hands upon her waist.
She lays her head on his shoulder
And sighs a small sigh of contentment.
As she inhales she smells his cologne,
And smiles; he smells so good.
They hold each other
And twirl in circles while the song plays
And when the song ends,
She longs for more.







*Please note:*
This poem is different from my poem The Dance. This poem was written about me and my 
boyfriend at prom, while the other was based off of the 1980s movie Dirty Dancing.

My Music Stopped Playing

When i just saw you my heart started to sing,
I promised myself that i would hold on to that ring.
We had the best time of our lives and loved it,
I couldn't stay away from your angel touch cause it is too sweet.

But now that i have gone, my heart had stopped,
the song in my heart sings as if it were cropped. 
I want that song to come back to my heart,
to make everything better, as it was in the very start. 

Dedicated to: Ilona Mudraya.

The Sacred Harp Fa

Fa
* *
Singing and plucking the strings of the heart
the morning strums as horizons take wing
We gather momentum the sacred harp
The sun warms cold in trees little songs sing
Answered prayers from the night before
Longing to go but town is far away
but thanking God that He opens the doors
Still our home is sweet where we learn and play
Blue skies do shine in through the wagon bow
Me and the girls watch home into green blend
Sis’s and I haven’t been to town since the snow
a convention is there we’ve never been
exited Pa says it’s like a church fair
Double Springs Sacred Harp Singing is where

free cee A SONG FOR C B AND ME

                   THE ACRYLIC BLUES 
Warm winter days……… and sultry summer afternoons 
With rainbows so bright……. they could even shine at midnight
Those were the merry days…… those were the very merry days
When you spun silly little stories under the sun
But I was only twenty and you were only twenty-one
I was only twenty the day our eyes first met
I was in a Toyota, and you in your violet corvette
We raced off the line, and  how your mag-wheels spun
We met when I was twenty, but things changed when you became twenty-one

Sundays spent bowling when the lanes led lovers to lover's lane
Mondays meant wishing for Sunday’s strikes and colorful bowling shoes
When there were no acrylic blues to match the sky that we sat under
Days when our love chased away the thunder….
Evenings woven only for souls like me and you 
But I was still twenty when you turned twenty-two

I was only twenty and came upon a dream
You led me to lakes and strolled me to a stream
I remember your kisses were moist as morning dew
We met when I was twenty but things changed when you turned twenty-two

Boat rides, carousels and clowning ‘round in the snow
A couple happy to have nowhere to go….Candlelit dinners with fine china and wine
Glad only to be each others “mine”
Ohhhhhhhh you caught me and taught me about pleasantries and such
And I turned liquid when you’d touch your fingertips to my heart
I would speak to you with flowery words
Of memories from my childhood
When being good meant an ice cream cone
And never being left alone
Then finally set forever free
And oh the way you made love to me
when you finally turned twenty-three

And then I turned twenty-four
Which opened the door and you were no more
A portal for my ex-lover to portend………. who promised me forever
but then I married a man with his shirt neatly tucked in
And Lord knows that night was when I lucked out
And made him mine as mine can be
So I may one day forget twenty-three
But I will remember forever twenty-four---when Mr. Right walked through my door…….

THE GROOVIEST GREETING

I had a long, peaceful sleep last night,
didn't attempt to take a single bite;
hurriedly, I descend the steepest stairs...
to greet the coolest friend with braids!


It's wonderful to say, " Good morning!"
to anyone you happen to meet along
the busy street or avenue,
or whoever you bump into;
it's the grooviest greeting,
that can be so pleasing!   


I've gotten back from work and taken off my black leather boots,  
so glad I made home safely listening to some sweet tunes;
surely Delilah can pick the right song for the loneliest lover,
her radio show is flooded with requests from fans near and far!


" Good morning " are the nicest words that can make somebody's day less moody;
say them aloud with the sweetness and thrill of your favorite disc jockey, 
who over the radio station waves kindly asks who is calling...
then shouldn't you hum that delightful song while you're walking?
And as you rush to your destination, shout with joy the grooviest greeting
that people are anxious to hear by starting their day with your, " Good morning! "

Love Ballad

 A gentle knight chirped and roaming the way of desert at night.
 His dancy browny hair, blue eyes made romantic guy and couraged.
 He lured by lovely song beyond a hill.
 Eagerly, he rushed his horse and fell swooned.

 He lightly opened his eyes but did not movable, groaning pains.
 His wounds tide with herb and bluey fungus.
 A spinster, an oldman lived in this hut sitting anxious looking.
 The nature of love girl sing a praying song under a coniferous.

 He falls asleep and his wounds healing miracle by love.
 He said many gratitude thanks and parting smiles.
 The spinster missed her heart and possess a minute death.
 She weaving her heart gifted garland to him with splendid love-smells.

 The nightjar song impressed his love seek, find to fail.
 The red war period started, as his melancholy love.
 He stabed not but earning many love wounds.
 His inner voice of love but fluttering dove!

 He became love-sicker and also think about the bewitching voice.
 Again he searched, his red wounds badly hurt.
 His instinct wishes that met her love-face lastly.
 He brings only thorny's love-blood at shadow night.

 Dews fluttering with his worthy red-blood gently to the heaven.
 He is rescued by the same spinster his heart-venus.
 She takes a letter and his pleasant love-subject written with golden tunes.
 Her tears of love tinkling on, the love-wounds bleeding with joyous!

 She feeds him on the love's last breath of lyric but sad love-melody chill.
 The worthy fairest carved immortalized their love-chapter.
 If you smelled the monumental garland it described the unbelievable love-tale.
 The love-origin pastoral surrounded with red grasses one touch it
    amazingly love-sicker!

A love song for Sommer Long

A love song for Sommer Long 
And a tribute to summers gone 
Face Painting and tire swings
And friendship rings

Four square and basketball hoops 
Capture the flag and camp outs 
All Star teams 
Softball games under the lights 

A smile as big as the world 
And a heart to match 
she sure could play a game of catch 
First base and Ace of base 
Short stack and return of the mac 

A childhood cut so short 
But not untouched 
your print here on earth was left 
And your memory is not unkept 
This is a love song for Sommer Long 
And tribute to summers gone



This poem is dedicated to Summer Long RIP

Settling for pause this an all-day affair
then outside grace was said then all do feed
Lots of kissing and hugging kinfolk share
A new baby on quilt sweet dreams he sleeps
Children run and play men talk of horses
As the women are talking up a storm
We sing our trio to the choruses
Family reunion of the Sherburne
Back inside join again the next refrains
In double springs overflowing melody
Feast of love and joy singing the Lord reigns
Enriching making the faith’s heart wealthy
Times change but some traditions never part
Singing and plucking the strings of the heart

Portrait of an Angel

There is no song that sings the words I feel.
No poem with words that describe the butterflies you awakened
That keep my heavy heart lifted above my lungs.
No song makes me breathe like your voice.

I search, believe you me,
But the thousands of words that reverberate through my cranium
Can never define the recreation of my soul you began
Before you held my hand and showed me how to make me...me.

No chord hits the note of your angelic sigh
Or the sleepy snort of laughter through your (perfectly constructed) nose.
Bach, Beethoven, nor Mozart could quite pin the grace 
That was used when creating everything that escapes from you.

No chisel tinking tirelessly against flawless marble 
Was ever successful in piecing together your perfect imperfections.
No Christian in a pew ever knew of the praise and worship spent
Over your sun-kissed skin and eyes full of wisdom surpassing your youth.

Yet here I am, a girl with a heart made of lead and rusted nails
In love with an angel with x-ray vision disguised as earth-brown eyes.
He never minds that his wings may get tired, or his halo may be dulled
While we make those songs we yearn for ourselves.

Piano Girl Monsieur - L'Vampyre

    PIANO GIRL - Mssr K'Vampyre
So like unto a song I'd play
an iv'ry pressed by me
cascading through a polished night
you are the melody,

the summer rain still sings of you
such notes that blend so well
into my breast where breathes the rhyme
of all the words I tell;

you'll always be that vital part
each thought I ever write,
and like the keys in harmony
the song you are sounds right;

the opening of me is you,
and overflows the wine
aged to perfection in the dark
to bring each song of mine,

oh! No, they are not ever mine,
admitedly, they're yours
and when the chorus of them come
like summer rain, it pours;

I've heard you singing to a song,
piano girl, your sound
remains in everything I write,
not lost, but never found.

Loves Scars

I saw us in a meadow
laying in the grass
golden light surrounds us
displaying all our best
you picked wild flowers
placed them gently in my hair
layed the rest on my stomach
whispering 
"there are no monsters here my dear"
I see the way you care
expression on your face
can we stay like this forever
lost in this warm embrace

I'm so hot
burning with desire
want to feel your love
want to feel your fire
don't care if I get burned
scar me with the love of you
carve yourself in
take away my pain
just love me 
like I'm the woman you adore 

Lay down before me 
on our meadow floor
pound my heart back to life
electracute my core
roll me over on my back
unravel all my ties 
put your hands upon me 
and listen to my cries
as if I'm your lullaby
sing to me the song you think I would be

As the sun begins to fade
we welcome the moon
knowing what this will bring
knowing what this means
gather up my flowers
tuck them all away
keeping all the trinkets 
for our loves display
knowing tomorrow is a brand new day
tie my laces back up
put on my shoes
I know you must go now
fade into the night
must howl
a man that is a slave
to the moonlight
a monster your not
a gentle beast 
you won't hurt me
this I know

Walk me to my car
with brand new scars
your song stuck in my head
smiling all the way
can't wait for another day
tomorrow you can come out and play

Throne Room

The voice of Love is gentle seeks your heart to mend
screaming and abusive speech to shield from defend
kindness you have robed in the heart of your Son
whose disciples are collecting all loved old and young

Grant he will the prayers of those seeking peace
those pursuing righteousness and from tyranny release
freedom from what causes harm to walk in Liberty
to find your joy and happiness to vision given see

God has made the promise in which he cannot lie
the hope of everlasting Life in Jesus never die
Love is as strong as Death a seal set on your heart
when you truly know his Love never from it depart

How pleasant it receives you with joy and delight
like the most beloved when standing in his sight
made like the savour so like honey sweet
a song with it's enchantment no other voice can meet

It cannot be compared to anything but God
for he is its source its living waters laud
the fairest of the fair where desire is complete
this is the throne of God on heart it must take seat

The elixir in the goblet intoxication of sweet wine
how the taste and smell and touch majesty divine
unspoiled and unpolluted its embrace is clean
never will mistreat you be violent or mean

To dare to look upon it and in its depths be found
water it does all life and gives fertile ground
without it there's no Light to life where in darkness set
those who follow hatred live in Death forget

Awake awake oh sleeper lift your eyes on High
Love is the only thing we're assured can never die
It holds the universe together exists for all Time
like God we hold its passing memory deeply in our mind

Fall I do in worship beneath its gaze I bow
that into his presence by Son he does allow
to let us stand before him and take us in embrace
when we become like him we will know his face

Double Springs Sacred Harp Singing is where
voices blend in a harmonious accord
We practiced a trio a harp to share
Sherburne shape notes rise from the covered
Time has flown as we reach the edge of town
Little songs everywhere filling air so sweet
jumping from the wagon feet hit the ground
running ahead never missing a beat
Picnic tables a woman holding her child
A man nips he thinks no one is looking
In church standing room only yet all smiles
A flirt in church He’s on the wrong footing
he keeps taping the woman on her toes

Foolish Feelings

Lately, I feel sorry for myself 
And how I can’t just get you
Off my mind.
Your sweet talk’s are 
Comforting and make me feel
Happy inside.

Somehow, you will be there for
Me. You seem like one of those
Guys who would take that
Special girl in your arms,
And let her know that you’re strong
Embrace will never let her fall
And that your love will be forever
Faithful.

I wiYour soft caress has
Held me captive in the palm
Of your hands. I only wish to
To sing you one song from
The heart and strum the 
Notes from my guitar…

…because from now on and
Till forever, I cry myself to sleep and
Awake to a day of foolish feelings.
l will no longer feel like I have to fight to
Be with you and stay with you
Just because you like someone else,
So please I beg you to let me sing
To you this one song and I’ll be gone
Forever free from your chains of despair.

Valentine Rose

You are the rose
   that filters my air with fatal fragrance
   yet saturates with sweetness all my senses.
Yours are the thorns that dug deep
   and scarred my heart,
   now healed by your love with no pretenses. 

You are that rose
   of which love songs are sung
   and with which gardens do grow.

You are my rose.
My eyes behold your beauty.
My lips tingle by your touch.

You are my valentine rose.
I love you, oh, so much.

ROSA GLUTINOSA - TRUE COLORS

Roses are still red  -  and
True - pink and velvet silk of ivory
Rosa Glutinosa - the species of Mediterranean
Stunted by the growth, Native be Europe, Turkey and Iran
A shrub - at most three tiny feet high
Beauty it be of whites - 5 petals and true of thee
Gold- centered a bud - Her devoted majesty
For European culture - thee limbs hairy and of thorn
Fresh - be it- be - the leaves aroma of pine
Roses are - what to determine true love, and mine
Look thee - Rosa Glutinosa - the love doth flow
Like a daisy - with petals true and fact every time
He or she loves me , loves me not, loves me , loves me not
Matter of fact - gimme five , He or she ends always
With that - that is true - LOVES ME
Controlled by the daisy - by the European  Rose!
And true to a point - picking the petals then see
Glutinosa - your true colors special to know of how rare
To know to start out with HE/SHE loves me not - HE/SHE loves me
Loves me not - loves me ends like this with
A fur of thick - thorn - and 3 foot slap
Right in the face - loves me not too for also and end
True how 5 petals waiting
Too the daisy , shall it known the rose is close
And each petal bore by the bud
Feelings are then beauteous - they flood
Determining love - I say it with prose
Loves me - pick the petal that beautiful rose!

In true love shall we pend in life  .  The point I get to say in my song Lyrics as a songwriter too!  MY SONG  Sir , Don't You Understand ?  sung by singer Sharon Zee

I Still Love You....

I heard a song this afternoon,
as I listened, I stopped what I was doing.
I sat stunned, wondering if that was like you,
are you waiting for me to call or come home?
As the song went on, sitting where I stopped cleaning,
in the corner of the room, I cried my heart breaking even smaller.

It's been months since I last talked to you,
I remember what 'mom' told me the day I left.
That I could never call or come around,
that you and everyone she was related to wanted nothing to do with me.
That I was leaving because I 'never cared about you,'
but I left because I do care and since I was 'causing too much stress and pain.'

As I listened to the song, 
I wished that was you singing that song for me.
I cried even more because I miss you,
and I know I'm not as wanted as I want to be.
I know you love me, 
but I also know that I hurt you that day so long ago.

It was always thrown in my face what I said that day,
that I made you cry and your wife 'never seen you cry until that day.'
That you were never the same when your oldest little girl,
said she 'had nothing here' to her father's question to live with him.
It wasn't meant to hurt, I was just saying
that most of the family was where I was then.

So please dad,
please don't forget about me.
I know I caused you and your family pain and stress,
but know that I am okay and doing fine.
That you're in my every thought and I love you,
and I'll always be one of your little girls.

Sing a song

Sing a song. Sing it in the rain. Sing it loud and clear and dance it out into the entire world. That is your song; the song that keeps you going through the good times and the bad. It’s the song that makes everybody listen and smile happily, without a care in the world. It’s the song that makes the birds sing along as well, so sing it loud and sing it clear. Dance your melody clearly into this world.

In The Haze

Clear summer nights, when it’s still arm outside, I lay in bed and think of you.
Old summer days, from another time and place; I had a younger point of view.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.
 
Old pictures fade, no reason to be saved, especially of me and you.
Remember when – old things were different then.  Too late, nothing left to do.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.
 
Birght summer morns.   After I’ve locked the doors,  I leave my car and earn my pay...
Till five-o-one, when I’ve clocked out and I’m gone.  My mind slips back to another day.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.

My Song

My song
was filled
with ecstasy,
when together
was you and I

The words
that sang
within my heart,
made birds sing
in the sky

The chords
were set within
my song, in their
spots so deep

The beat
moved in a
soothing way,
that made my
song so sweet

But then
my song
made quite a
change, with you 
and I apart

The beats
and chords
within my song,
upped and left
my heart

The lyrics
were gone,
completely stopped,
my melody gone
away

My song
was changed
to a simple tune,
when you left
on that day

STOP THIS WORLD

I also write music and song lyrics.
This poem is one of my song lyrics. after all song lyrics is just a poem put to 
music.
              course
Stop this world and let me off.
IM tired of spinning around and around.
Stop this world and let me off,
before I fall to the ground.
            first verse
Your love is like a spinning top.
Dont know when its going to stop.
You play love like it was a game
and your always looking for some else to blame.
                course
Stop this world and let me off
IM tired of spinning around and around.
Stop this world and let me off
before I fall to the ground
             second verse
Your love is like a mystery
You keep me guessing if you love me.
Your love is of a special kind.
I love you,but your driving me out of my mind
                  course
Stop this world and let me off.
IM tired of spinning around and around.
Stop this world and let me off
before I fall to the ground

Song On The Breeze

She was born high on the mountain top
Where the soul stays pure and free
She sang everyday from the mountain top
Her voice was carried away on the breeze
The sweet angel voice floated- to the valley below
Where the Ranger was walking the street
Alone he would walk to serve and protect
The valley from the darkness it would meet
He was a white noble knight,in a black leather vest
He was the last of a rare hero’s breed
Then one day he heard the voice on the breeze

It sang, 
Follow your heart and you’ll find you way home
No need to walk through the valley alone
Just search and you’ll find the Angel Divine
And love from the mountain crest high 
Just follow the song on the breeze

He searched all around as he walked through the town
But the sweet voice was nowhere to be found
Then the darkness rolled in and he was at again
Trying to save the innocent souls of the town
He forgot the sweet voice as he followed the noise
Of  horses and the  bandits  escape
He followed them high through the mountains they climbed
Until he caught them at the top near the edge
He fought hard and proud and he captured them all
His heart beating strong when justice prevailed
He was turning around to take them to town
When he heard the sweet voice on the breeze

It sang,
You followed your heart and you found your way home
No need to return to the darkness of valley again
You searched and you found your  Angel Divine
And the love that was sent down from me
Now follow the song on the breeze 

He sent the prisoners away with the Deputy Shane
He said he won’t be walking the dark streets anymore 
The voice on the breeze has called out to me 
From this place where my soul is at peace 
He turned then to see the voice from the breeze
And the love in his sweet Angels eyes

How Can Heaven Ever Be Heaven

How can heaven ever be heaven
if you are not up there with me?
How can heaven ever be heaven
if I am the first one to leave?
How can heaven ever be heaven,
a paradise in which I can roam,
if while I am walking in heaven,
I am walking in heaven alone?

I do not fear my death that is coming;
I do not fear meeting my end;
But, I fear waiting up in heaven
until we are together again.
But, Darling don’t you hurry,
savor your time down here on earth;
And, Darling don’t you worry,
I’ll make the most of heaven for what heaven is worth.

But …
How can heaven ever be heaven
if you are not up there with me?
How can heaven ever be heaven
if I am the first one to leave?
How can heaven ever be heaven,
a paradise in which I can roam,
if while I am walking in heaven,
I am walking in heaven alone?

I will wait for you, Darling, forever,
but heaven is sure to be hell
until once again we are together
and our love story the angels can tell.
I will wait for you, Darling, forever,
until to heaven you do ascend
and forever we will stay together
for an eternity that will never end.

How can heaven ever be heaven
if you are not up there with me?
How can heaven ever be heaven
if I am the first one to leave?
How can heaven ever be heaven,
a paradise in which I can roam,
if while I am walking in heaven,
I am walking in heaven alone?

My Dear,

My Dear,

Tell me you love me
And I'll right you a song
perfect in measure and tune 

A song so perfect that it will make the doves sing
and even the most stubborn boy will buy a ring

Tell me you love me
And I'll write you a poem
Perfect in time and rhyme

A pome so perfect it will make the sunshine 
and even turn grapes into wine 

Tell me you love me 
and I'll be yours forever 
and no man shall ever hear a song or poem so clever

Original of the Doc wearing fist cuffing angels

Baby don't walk away
It's true that the beginning is better than the end
Please hold that smile somewhere in your heart

I will give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it

Somethings you shouldn't have to do alone
Like sleeping, waking and eating
Some people got way too much on their plate

I would give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
You'll never be alone, no
So sugar come on show us those soles
You've been wearing out when you collect the toll

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
The whole of what you got, the whole of what you got

Flourishing Love



Though I thought I wouldn't be able to love,for i have loved and lost.But you,how did you fill that hole that resounds inside of me? Can't I even think of anything else then what i have lost look at what i have gain so beautifully.This love in which is in both of us this love which resounds over and over again in my heart.How do love know how does it build until it is certain I am in love because I found you.You are now all I think about your everything I want.I no longer hurt myself I no longer feel dead,I am once again alive.There is love between us there is love where there shouldn't be for I thought I had lost all meaning to feel for love.But here it is and I hope it stay forever until I die or at least until we fall in love more with each other or for someone else.This beauty pure love shall grow hall be our harmony and we will sing to it forever even if i road shall split this shall be our song our song of love.Our flourishing our pure our our love is perfect.

Listen To My Song

 Listen to my song.
I wrote it just for you.
I tried to say some things
I didn't think you knew.
And when my song is over --
When all the words are through
I hope my message has been heard --
My heart belongs to you.

Listen to my song!
Find comfort in my words.
A feeling deep inside me
Is crying to be heard.
And, should you never hear it,
I'll write it down for you,
Since sometimes spoken words can't say
The things you want them to.

I've tried so many times
To write a song for you.
It seems each time I tried,
I missed a word or two.
So, if you cannot hear
The meaning of my song --
I'll spend my lifetime writing
Till the right words come along.

The Piano Man (remake)




The mystic eyes of sorrow blue,
his voice does sing a tender blue.
And skin be merely white as porcelain
and turned to cream as tears prick his cheek.
He sings a solo from his soul for he is the piano man.

His bony fingers rubs on scales,
And drinks a bottle of fine white wine.
And toasts to the guests who watch
his lips sing dry and plays a note to intertwine
the following tune... because he is the piano man.

And the man in black of fine wool cloth,
mourns his story-telling song of Emily, his daughter,
a gonning bless. Yet he strengthens to play an art
because its from soul, and he's the piano man...

The piano man tickles the tips of each pale finger
and rubs across each note or key, along the scale.
his voice does sing a tender blue that tears my eye.
And all left alone to his saddening song makes me fall in love
with the a strong hearted man, the piano man.

Just One

Just one look can change the way you feel
Just one smile can change the way you think
Just one word can change the way you live
Just one song can change your view on life
Just one person can change the way you work
Just one move can change the way you groove.

With just one look there will be one less lonely person
With just one smile there will be one less grumpy man
With just one word your world will change on child's life
With just one song there will be one more cheer girl
With just one person  there will be a new world order
With just one move there will be a a lot less heavy people

Just one dollar can save a life
Just one good deed can give some faith
Just one talk with an elderly
Can let them see, their not alone
Just one laugh with a little kid
Can show them that, theirs happiness
Just one hug to the homeless 
Can show then that there is love

Wouldn't these little things i pointed out
Make you want to be Just one.
That one person to change a life
All we need is one.

Just One!

My Song To Sing Out Loud

Today, I wrote a word.
And soon, it became a line.
The line, a paragraph,
Till my paragraph became a prose.
A story to tell.
My song to sing out loud.

A thousands stories have I heard before,
Indifferent in tone and meaning.
But through my eyes,
Mine is unique,
Uniquely brilliant.

Slowly being made perfect
Because of her.
For she be the words of my song.
She is the beat that makes me tap my feet
The rythym to which I move,
To which my heart beats.

She is my song to sing out loud.

Retro Reminicant Rhyme

A simpler time of simpler rhyme.
Filled with romance simply sublime.
An angels voice from yesteryear.
Sounds oh so nice in this boys ear.

A love of love for love's sweet sake.
And dream's for two a future make.
In today's world the past is pale.
So nice to hear love's not for sale.

Crackling and plinking mix so succinctly.
On a record recording done so distinctly.
An era gone by reminiced in the air.
So glad that they did so that we now can share.

It's funny to think of the people gone by.
It almost always brings a tear to my eye.
So to think that Dear Doris is still here today.
Give's promise that everyone will find their way.

True Love

Roses are red 
Violets are blue
Candy is sweet 
And so are you 
You make my day
In your handsomeish way 
You sing a song 
And i sing along
because your voise
Fills me with pride
I was not always on your side 
IUsed to think your love was dark 
Because of your hair and your many marks
I looked at you as the out side in
But your love came from within
Your hair was dark but you had light 
Your true self came into sight 
From that point on 
We have had our song 
You are my man 
I am your girl 
You are the one who completes my world.

Love Song

I hear love songs softly ringing in my ears each one reminds me of the way we 
were , the way we should be.
Every line is a line you might use to describe me
every feeling is a feeling you have for me
every soft whisper in the song brings me closer in your arms.
The slow sad parts are the worst for I feel your sadness in each word and I see 
your tearful eyes as you look towards me.
Each song is speaking to me begging me to listen, hoping I will hear what your 
really trying to say.
Your words to me are a song and they bring me closer to you as they dance in my 
head. 
Your never-ending song is all I want to hear ringing in my ears.

Angels Don't Sing the Blues

Sent down from Heaven, their jobs are sure tough
But they don’t fly away when the going gets rough
They rise to the challenge to bring back wonder and hope
Failure does not happen in their line of work
Cuz’ Angels, no Angels,  they don’t sing the blues

Angels sing strong from the high mountain tops
Sometimes it’s a rock song to wake spirits up
Sometimes it’s a ballad when babies must sleep
Or a love song in country that just makes you weep
But Angels, no Angels, don’t sing the blues

They work behind the scenes to enlighten world faith
Always there when you need’em, our Heavenly base
They make house calls to heal another broken heart
Gatekeepers to the soul, they lighten the dark
The sky is the limit as only Angels can know

When times are a troubling,  their first on the scene
Not afraid to help out or even dirty their wings
The tune that they dance to, comes from Heaven above
Giving rhythm and gospel to everyone they love
Cuz’ Angels, no Angels,  they don’t sing the blues

And you know Angels can’t read music,
but they sure wing it well
As they learn from the Almighty,
Who swings with, the heartbeat of humanity,
From Heavens high hill

Angels sing strong from the high mountain tops
Sometimes it’s a rock song to wake spirits up
Sometimes it’s a ballad when babies must sleep
Or a love song in country that just makes you weep
But Angels, no Angels, don’t sing the blues

They just don’t sing the blues
No, Angels don’t sing the blues
Angels don’t sing the blues

My Silent Song For You

To My Wife, Wanda:
 The road was lonely.

Your existence gently speaks to me
though miles apart, tonight, are we.
Your subtle presence, which I feel,
speaks of love, both true and real.
The lonely silence of this night
with morning sunrise will unite.
And, with the light tomorrow brings,
you'll hear the song that my heart sings -- 
A song of love two lovers share --
A song of faith when you're not there. 
A ballad born inside my heart 
this lonely night when we're apart
will tell you what you ought to know -- 
When we're apart, I miss you so!

Oceans Of The Blue

The oceans of the world my dear,
Are filled with lovers' salty tears;
For when they are so far apart,
More tears flow from all loving hearts.

Yet all tears aren't from lonely hearts,
Some are of joy they do impart;
They flow from me, they flow from you,
They flow into the oceans blue.

And as they flow onto the deep,
They give the whales their song so sweet;
They sing of love, they sing the blues,
They fill us with great joy in tune.

And as the whales sound in the deep,
Their song does echo in relief;
To place the love found in our hearts,
And give us strength while we're apart.

My Old Music Box

I love the song of my old music box
Singing the tune of Joyful Joyful
Everytime I'd open it
There was the song, so simple
But so beautiful

I love when it would just open up a new light
Although I've been through a lot that day
Just hearing the sound of the song
The song which reminded me of love
Love so beautiful

I love the way it would brighten up the sky
I mean, everytime I'd open that Music Box
There, looking out my window, was the sun
The sun grazing the depths of the cement and grass
The landscape so beautiful

I loved it when it would make me smile from the deepest frown
I loved it when it would sound the song of the Triumphant and Brave
I loved it when I would open it and it play
I loved it when I would let it ring for hours, and hours a day

But that I have grown from my younger years
I can see myself walking further away
But as I fade into the dark, dark light
I can still hear my old Music Box
My old Music Box singing its song

Untitled 16

My sweet tongue is coiled, prepared to pounce,
ready to be free of those three heavy notes.
The major cadence forms in my chest and 
the melody rises: a spectrum of mutinous lyrics, 
a crescendo that’s longed to sing from my throat.

They are released from their cage in a discordant chord,
each tuneless, grey syllable tumbling from my mouth.
The raw words widow me three times over, 
each ponderous sound confronts your puzzled face 
as the tune melts in your silence, dispersing in the pale air.

Deep In My Song, Redemption Dwells

Deep In My song, Redemption Dwells


In my song, there : "Love is so sweet"
 Yet it never ever dares 
 gives the soul too much to eat.

In my tale, now : "Life stays so true"
 Although it never spells
 out all the evil we so often do

In my life, then : "Fate delivered pain"
 Yet it rarely gave out
 the refreshing gifts of the rain

In my spirit, soon : "Mercy will give"
 Although it reminds us
 faith, by faith it was best to live

A mist, a memory:
A song in a dream that was wrapped in purple cloak
So great the relief felt (that) 
joy and happy tears merged with love (that)
I cried out with praise and sobs so great (that)
the deep feelings swelled my breasts and made me choke

DAWN,S OFFSPRING

Showers of a thousand springs.
Nightfall and its queer needs.
A lovely maiden in a crystal ball.
We see the future, we see it all.


A bottle of jar with lemon crust.
A touch of us in earthly dust.
Beauty and virtue bore along.
Fine wheat, no famine is wrong.


My dream girl, my reality shivers
An empty heart, with love spots on my quiver.
I escape this solitude for a better morning.
The weather is fine, would you love me only for the money?


I ponder deep till I stop but yonder.
Is this emotion a burden or an aching joy.
My thoughts for you as innocent as a toddler.
I am man yet, I recollect not being a boy.

THE SWAN

Once my mom told me a story
About a swan singing a song…
She says the swan knew death was coming
And before it happens…
It wanted all birds around listen
A beautiful Love song to sparkle the lake

She told me the swan was enchanted
Because never ever a swan sang a song
As a girl I was listening attentively
Without understanding
The story at all

She continued… and I was delighted
To hear the end of my mom’s tale
But instead, I saw her eyes closing
… As she whispered
A song… I will never forget

Later on I discover the story
Was not even true, was only a fairy- tale
But I keep in my heart her anecdote
As I believe truth… everything she said
As I remember her
In a Love song … through sparkles
As the Swan in the lake…

Here's One For Those That Want Feelings

As the voluptuous water flows over Niagara Falls
My love for you pours from my heart
When your dam diverts my love I could bawl
Trapped love that you could receive from the start

"All my hugs and all my kisses
Boy oh boy what you've been missin'
Oh boy, oh boy"

Like the fig leaf that mixes its scent with the rose
My love for you gives forth its scented perfume
As the sudden freeze of fall stops the fig in troes
So does your rejection stop my love's eau de parfum

"All my hugs and all my kisses
Boy oh boy what you've been missin'
Oh boy, oh boy"

(Refrain is not original probably will remember from song of years ago.  I don't remember 
the name of the song or the artist.)

Song of Songs

Oh to sing the Song of Songs
and within his arms belong
there to look upon his face
is the dwelling of heavens place
 
with ones tears to wash his feet
and know his favor is complete
to share his table and his wine
and be bathed in Love divine
 
Perfect Love does cast out fear
when you walk with God so near
and when I become his lover
proceed he will my sins to cover
 
When born from God your free from sin
because the seed of loves from him
but the planted seeds must grow
spirit will teach what you must know
 
Not every spirit is from God
but only those who Jesus laud
that Jesus has come in the flesh
was propitiation with his death
 
That no lier works the truth
the serpents tongue a sayers sooth
practice of transgression commit
doing what love does not permit
 
If you walk in love you will not sin
or practice harm to other men
if for Love one becomes hated
from the world such is fated
 
That whosoever hears his voice
knowing loves the only choice
will be the one to overcome
walking as if already done
 
He who does not love knows naught God
nor in his path will he trod
but he that gave his life for us
and in him we will put our trust
 
Love is always perfect but I am not
covering for sin has Jesus bought
to purchase my life did he pay
the possession of Love forever stay
 
know little children love is from God
and he who walks with God walks in Love

No Frills Girl

She always looked
A little bit out of the norm
Cruising down the street 
In her Geo Storm

One time
I asked her to give me five
Up high
She missed 
and slapped me dead in the eye

She wears wears a butt bag around her waist
It's so sad 
she's got bad 90's taste
But I guess 
I can kinda relate
That's why she's kinda cute 
in a corky kinda way

She's inside out to me
She wears her heart out on her sleeve
She's a simple beauty 
Do you see what I see?
She's a simple beauty

And the boys may say
There's not much about her on the outer
she's got no frills
But yet she's got me staring at her at a stand still

It crossed my mind to love her
and I think that I oughta
So don't throw the baby out with the bath water

Just like snow globes 
and kaleidoscopes
If you don't look inside
You'll miss the show

she's inside out to me
She wears her heart out
On her sleeve 
she's a simple beauty
Do you see what I see?
She's a simple beauty

She's got lips like morphine
Like Angelina Jolie 
porcelain skin
Like Nicole Kidman 
She's as cute as can be
Like Gwen Stefani 
she's sweet to my soul 
like Nora Jones 

she's inside out to me
She wears her heart out 
on her sleeve
She's a simple beauty
Do you see what I see?
She's a simple beauty

She's my No Frills girl
She's my No Frills Girl

Help

I’m starting to question whether you meant it or not.  
What if you didn’t?  
What if those sweet kisses you gave me were nothing more than a responsibility to you?
I can’t stand it anymore.
I don’t know what you want me to do.
Am I supposed to just sit here and take it?
Are you really going to tell me you didn’t mean any of it?
Was it all a lie?
You’ve pulled me so far in just to make my heart drop.
I don’t understand the reasoning you have behind this.
I just need a little bit of help.
Help me…
Please…
Help…

((Inspiration for this one comes from the song "Hands Down" by Dashboard Confessional.  
They have completely different messages, but that song made me think about this.))

love song

when i close my eyes so deep 
and my voice streches in acapella 
i could hear love song so quick 
reviving the deepest of soul like an orchestral.

Though i travel through the winds of deceit 
for the eyes seems blind to the heart
 but this song is like an instinct 
that blinds my certitude like that 

How could i dance to love
 when the deepest of my emotions 
is ringing in fear of odds,
yet my legs rushes to stage in passion.

How could i kiss with the fullness of joy
 the mouth that sings love song
so controvertial,but irresistable fallr
so blind but without reproachable sought.

These song 're songs of the sea 
defining nature in a plenitude of uncertainty 
though trickling the sweetestof breeze 
but the crest,trough,storms 're of certitude.

She is everything I need to know!

She is my life and love and everything I need to know.
She is my strength and health whenever I am sick and slow.
She sticks to my heart all day long: she is my sure shadow.
She comforts me all through the night: she is my pleasant pillow.

She is a lovely lady, so bright, bold and beautiful.
She is a priceless princess, so cute, cool and colorful.
She is the sweetest song in my mouth, I can’t stop to sing.
She is my dearest dream, a quiet queen for a kind king!

She is an immortal image, a perfect painting… an alluring art.
She is every blessed blood flowing through my humble heart.
She soothes my soul and spirit with her cheerful charms.
She takes me to a wonderful world whenever I’m in her arms.

She is a darling dame; her sensual smiles rock my ribs.
She tames my heart and head …with her tender tease.
She has got a face and figure that takes me to a sensual space;
She has got a pleasant picture that old age can never erase.

She is the smile I need to make me go the extra mile.
She is the unsinkable ship that can sail me safely on the Nile.
She is my hope and stay whenever it seems my life is wearing away
She is a home-maker; she has got a romantic role to perfectly play.

She is an immortal image, a perfect painting…an alluring art.
She is every blessed blood flowing through my humble heart.
She is a passionate poet, with terrific theme, thrust and tone.
She has got rhymes and rhapsodies that thrill kings on their throne!

She is a dazzling damsel: a sweet angel sent from above.
She is the reason I am singing this song of life and love.
She is a trailblazing tale, only a wise man can truly tell;
She is that beautiful butterfly for whom I finally fell!

She is my sun at noon and the shining star in my sky at night.
She is in every picture I see, whenever I look left and right.
She is a sweet story I can’t exhaust because words are not just enough.
She is cool, calm and careful but sometimes she appears to be tough.

She is an immortal image, a perfect painting … an alluring art.
She is every blessed blood flowing through my humble heart.
She is lovely, lively and laudable; faithful and full of fun.
She is every thing I need to know, I need not ask… ‘Is she the one?’

Melody

Branch upon branch I hop
Singing my lyrics in the air
A song of calling.
Tree to tree I fly
Mine is a search
For a partner, for love.

I take a moment to preen
Have my coat tidy
For I am out to impress.
For a moment I scan the lands
Distant and wide
Hoping to spot the one I can love.

Melody and pitch
I compose my tune
At times I croon
Another I raise my notes.....
My song is the same
I need someone to love me.

At times I fly
Making dance in the air
Circles and loops..........
I want to be noticed
I reach for the clouds
Then again back again.

My cause is stated
My language spoken
Hoping to reach a receptive ear.
As I prepare to go to my nest tonight
A question lingers
Will it be you to love me?

Once Upon a nightmare

As I close my eyes I linger slowly to sleep.
As I fall into this world of dreams.
I see you face once again.
There you are once more in my arms as we dance.
Your lips press softly upon mine as the passion flares.
Once more our song plays in the background.
Once more I sweep you off your feet.
So light as we dance upon the floor.
Our eyes meet the song comes to an end.
I place a rose in long beautiful hair.
Your smile is like a gift that warms my smile as it spreads upon your face.
Your eyes change color from the glare of the moon as they shine.
To hear your heart as it sings in a loud song as I melt.
Once more a kiss upon your lips before I awake.
But to open my eyes an realize its too late. 
Waking up in disapointment to see you aren't by my side.
To only cry and wish I still had you here.

SING TO ME A SONG....

Sing to me a song…

A song of love…

A love so wonderful…

Sing to me the perfect melody…

Sing it just for me…

Make the words about us…

Sing to me a sweet lullaby…

Make me float on air…

Make me drift into the stars…

Sing to me a story…

A fairytale with the perfect ending…

A novel full of love from the beginning…

Sing to me an energy…

The energy we need to love…

An energy that will last forever…

Sing to me a song…

A song of love…

A love so wonderful…

MARY WAS THE POETESS

Mary was the poetess
who loved handsome Franco, 
the tall Neapolitan orchestra leader;
and in Naples they met:
at The Galleria Umberto,
under the surveillance of my father...  


Mary was barely eigtheen,
and writing was her only passion;
even her big, hazel eyes were
as light as the Tyrannean Sea in summer,
somehow too melanchonic as a fading moon,
which longed more for a friend than a lover!


Her first song was recorded in Milan, with a brilliant
production of composer Angelo Camis; 
that song became quite popular in Capo D'Istria,
and in all the booth-shaped Italian Peninsula!
Ermanna Melli from the city of Forli was the artist
with that mellow, sensual and expressive voice!


" What's this desire? " a delicate and spontaneous love song,
captured a large audience, both young and old...
it was a song telling of the emotions of a young heart too naive,
falling in love with someone much older that she was, indeed;
and it made many people cry, perhaps recalling the time 
they fell for someone as special and gorgeous as Mary's dream guy! 


Mary, your song still plays on the airwaves of that radio station and although
you no longer sing it in the manner of a famous virtuoso:  the visions 
of your past life become too real as you performed it by surprise;
it is the jewel you left on earth for us to remember you by,
and it immesely dazzles like every rainbow in the Capri's sky...
when an unknown tenor improvises his impassioned aria with an absolute sorrow!  


Mary was the poetess who dedicted her time
writing about love, but never found it in reality;
she was my oldest sister inspiring me with her creativity! 
Mary had the potential of becoming great and shine,
but the tides turned abruptly and fate wasn't kind:
even today, her fearless voice comes alive through her  poetry!

Wishful Thinking

Last Night was the night that I needed him the most...but he let me down
he sat there silent for most of the night without even making a sound
i tried to talk but he overwhelmed my voice with the sound of "tap tap"
he lost a part of me that he will never get back
I tried to open up to him I wanted him to help me fill this hole in my heart
but i think he made it worst as if stabbing it over and over with a dart
I have a song in my head , "if that boy don't love you by now...he will never ever love you"
well I guess every lyric in that song has proved to be true
you cant make someone love, or even make them care
they have to want to love, they have to want to be there

To know that someone loves you so much that they will stop whatever they're doing to listen 
to you when you need to talk is heartwarming. To have someone to call when you feel like 
crying, and to have them use an imaginary tissue to wipe away your tears is genuine love.

I can't help but fantasize what it would be like for someone to love me so much

Swans On The Lake

Swans glide on water
Elegant graceful lovers
Float to other

Swans mate forever
Greeting caressing lovers
Touch slightly linger

Dance with me and sing the song of Spring

*** In the style of the oldies :)

Dance with me among the stars tonight
And hold me tight.
When we touch and when I kiss your lips
It feels so right.
Every word you say to me is like a song of spring,
And with you I will forever sing.

Even when the winter’s cold embrace
Touches your face,
I will make you warm inside and 
I’ll be by your side
No one in this crazy world is more in love than I,
You’re the star I’ve searched for in the sky.

So, dance with me under the stars tonight,
Dance with me lets make this moment right,
Sing to me your lovely song of spring
And with you I will forever sing,
And with you I will forever sing.

Thought I can’t foretell of things to be
But you’re with me.
And this moment’s where I want to be 
And tenderly
I hold every kiss and every touch and sound,
Thank you love - for it is love I found.

So, dance with me under the stars tonight,
Dance with me and make this moment right,
Sing to me your lovely song of spring
And with you I will forever sing,
And for you I will forever sing.

Dock Of The Bay

Back in the summer of 69
                            I remember sitting on the dock of the bay
                                     watching the boys of summer
                                   build their love shacks love shacks
                                    girls were playing twister and
                                   sipping on pina coladas all day
                                     feeling kind of groovy  groovy
                                    I couldn't get much higher higher
                                     with these such good vibrations
                                     from the summer in the city
                                     way down in Key Largo
                                watching my beach baby beach baby
                                           from the dock of the bay

Guitar Strings

You play my heart
Like the strings on the guitar
You play notes i never knew existed
You strum chords
That make me feel alive
You play a song 
That only my heart can hear
But is it the song that my heart will hear forever?
Who knows
Just enjoy the song while you can
Let the strings
Make chords 
Just for you
And no one else
Make a song that will 
Leave a lasting impression
No matter how long it last
Make it a song
That no matter when you look back
And hear it play again in your head
That it makes you smile
So play me a song
That only plays to my heart
And hopefully
One day
It will last

Sing Me A Song Of Love

Sing me a song of love:
A song of passion,
A song of emotion-
One that's true and genuine filled with everlasting devotion.

Sing me a song of love:
One that is sincere, 
One with compassion,
One of truth-
One that springs from the well of hope, eternal.

Sing me a song of love:
One of deep admiration,
A song of purity, of commitment, of family-
That bonds and can not be broken by the chimes of time
A song of love in rhythm and rhyme.

Sing me a song of love:
One so strong that it rights the  wrongs and
Lessens the hurts of past disappointments and makes life worth living-
Never to be taken for granted or given up on.

Sing me a song of  everlasting joy, peace and love-
One that as a child of All Mighty God, I am so deserving of.

The Truth In The End

Thoughts of you can make me cry
Thoughts of you keep flying by.
Thoughts of you put a song in my heart
Thoughts of you, from me, will never depart.
Thoughts of you put my heart together
Thoughts of you make my life so much better.
Thoughts of you put a smile on my face
Thoughts of you, in me, have a special place.
Thoughts of us make me happy
Thoughts of us are usually sappy.
Thoughts of us motivate my heart
To do what the Lord asks, so we’ll never part.
Thoughts of us always brighten my day
Thoughts of us make everything okay.
Being with you, in person, is better
And that is why I write this letter.
Your smile and touch put a song on my lips
Your smile and touch make my heart do flips.
But your love is that thing that blows my mind
And keeps me wondering as to why you’re so kind.
But your love is the thing that pulls me through
The bad days I have that you never knew.
It’s the love God placed in your heart for me
That relaxes my thoughts and sets me free.
It’s also the love that I hold for you 
That speaks of faith and promise that is true.
So believe me when I say from my heart
That my precious love for you will never part.

Written by the two of us 


He : Our love is every song…
        We hear a line or just a word  
        and we’re walking on cloud nine
        And whistling like a bird…
        You feel it in your chest, 
        you wanna do your best
        Singing to the woman who makes you feel so refreshed.
        We say “this song gets us, this song was made for us, 
        listen to this song it sounds just like us”
        Our love is every song 
        cause our love is oh so strong 
        and it belongs to Us.
She: I hear you in the melody, 
        in the beat that lifts me up, 
        in the notes that take me high
        I hear you in the lyrics 
        that speak of you and I,
        And when you’re not near
        I turn em up loud to echo  
        to the world what my words are not allowed
        Every pitch like the touch of your fingers, 
        like the kiss of your lips on my heart it lingers
        Like our secret messenger, 
        our voice in disguise, 
        the code that we belong…
        Our love is every song

Your Breath Sweeps On My neck

Your breath sweeps on my neck as I sigh in relief.
Your eyes show the moon as you look at me. 
I find peace each time you take me in your arms.
I see the sunshine in your smile each morning with you lying next to me.
We are the stars, the moon and the sun, as we entwine together.
The sound of your heart beat in my ears is a sweet melody.
May we never feel the pain of the song of the whippoorwill?
Seeing the light shining in the mist of the morning; you sigh with sweet delight.
In the darkness; sweet love is made.
As your breath sweeps on my neck, as I sigh in relief.
You breathe a sigh of happiness for the love that has been there for so long. 
It has been the eternal time machine taking you from one place to another.
The words and feelings of long ago, relived in one night on the phone. 
Staying in the time of now, will be the challenge.
With the strength of the love over several decades, time can only tell.
The length of time has shown us how much the sigh of love becomes a sweet song to be sung.

Hard To Love

OK, so this isn't really something I wrote. It's a song by Lee Brice, and I love this song because it really relates to me in a lot of ways and I thought I'd share this with you all. 

"I am insensitive,
I have a tendency
to pay more attention
to the things I need.
Sometimes I drink to much
Sometimes I test you trust
Sometimes I don't know why
you're staying with me.

[Chorus]

I'm hard to love, hard to love
I don't make it easy
I couldn't do it if
I stood where you stood.
I'm hard to love, hard to love
I don't deserve it but 
I love that you love me, good.

I'm a short fuse
I am a wreaking ball
Crashing into you heart like I do
You're like a Sunday morning
full of grace and full of Jesus.

[chorus] 
 
I'm hard to love, heard to love
I don't make it easy
I couldn't do it if 
I stood where you stood
I'm hard to love, hard to love
I don't deserve it but
I love that you love me, good.
Love me good.

Girl, you've given me
a million second chances
and I don't ever wann
take you for granted
I'm just a man
I'm just a man.

[chorus]

I'm hard to love, hard to love.
I don't make it easy
I couldn't do it if 
I stood where you stood
I'm hard to love, hard to love
I don't deserve it  but
I love that you love me, good


Well, I hope you enjoyed it :)

Vasava - An Untold Story 11/Many

Vasava – 
An untold story                                                                        11/Many



It appeared that Rati* the wife of love God Cupid
Had come before the Shiva* the God of destruction
To charm and disturb his meditation
Thus taking the strength of God Shiva* 
For saving her husband the Kamadava*

By expressing shyness through her beautiful eyelids
She had added only more charms to her lovely face
And by filling a touch of passions,  in her slow movements
Vasava was adding only more restlessness among all those
Who were watching,  the legendry Vasava on the stage

By listening the heart touching sound of her Gold Noopurs*
All became enchanted, while listening the sound of its music
Even the lamps which were burning to spread the light
Increased their flames, as if they too wanted to see the beauty
Thus illuminating the beauty of the dancer more and many fold

King Udiyan and King Suyodhan, both were watching Vasava
Almost spell bound, as if her beauty had charmed them completely
As the beauty of a full bloomed flower 
Often takes away our heart and mind together
Udiyan was feeling as if, Vasava had stolen his heart completely

She started her first song of the day, by reciting a welcome song
Attributed to King Suyodhan, who was lost in the dreams of Vasava
She sang ‘Priya Tum Aaye ho dwar hamare, Vandan Abhinandan Hamare’*
The Alap* which she started from the slow pitch of voice 
Went high enough to touch the hearts of every one who was there



Ravindra 					26th March 2010

You have come to our door, O dear 
We welcome you and greet you

                        parrot, whose form embodies Rati, his consort. Together these two 
            deities, Kama (Love) and Rati ( Desire) signified each other.

Again

They say that nothing lasts forever
But why are you leaving so soon
When you told me that you’ll leave me never
Now this song will end soon

They say the time eases the pain
It has been years since you’ve been gone
But I can feel that I can’t regain
Now this is song is gone

Feels like forever is in your eyes
But ever since you started knitting lies
I feel like your love’s as cold as ice
But I had to stand up and be wise

They say that the best thing never last
But why did it happen so fast
So for now I have to rely on to the past
Hoping these tears will dry fast

They say time always heals
But there’s nothing I could feel
‘Cause my heart is now frozen
It’s better this way than be broken
Again…

Proper

It's in the movies that the display,
Measured white screen precisely laid,
The twenty-four a second images roll by,
Captured as if conceived by artistic eye,

And I don't know if what I have been is proper,

I haven't treated you as a friend and,
I haven't treated you as best I can and,

Properly displayed and played,
Stories of love and risk,
Do what is wrong, song of hearts,

I don't know what is meant as proper,

Romantic notions are adored only in fiction,
A rose by any other means is no less expensive,
What once as joy perceived as friction,
A proper distance starts at extensive,

And I don't know if it would have been proper to be proper,

I loved you as much as a friend as any other and,
I loved you enough to take a chance and,

Wrenched connection sure to cause stress,
Sink where respect goes to drain,
Done what is wrong, song of hearts,

I don't know why it is proper for us to part.
(I have done wrong).

The Waterfall Delights

In a highland glen through a forest of green
For years untouched it has to be seen
Giant ferns from the prehistoric age
In this place where i walk is natures stage

Clearings so lush, breath taking sights
A break of a twig as pheasants take flight
Up ahead i hear the most delightful of roars
Like a magnet so strong, draws me to explore

A spray mist, drifts through the air
As enchanted singing, lures me to there
A rocky outcrop i reach, beside waters of blue
The song being sung, notes so true

In the crisp clear waterfall, bathes a maiden so blond
I watch the waters caress her, in delightful fond
Curvaceous and slim as the cold affects
Her body ripples to the cascading effect

Through the clear her hands glide in motion
Like the gracing waves on a tranquil ocean
A symphony, of mother natures sounds
Accompany her song in this wonderful surround

Who is this maiden that i view here
In this wonderful glen, on this amazing sphere
Bathing in water that gives so much to my lands
As i wish the fluid of clear, were my hands

Whispers in the Night

Listen carefully my love, I want you to open your heart, for my whispers in the night
Wanting to touch your soul, ever so gently, and feel the warmth of the starlight
I am coming to you my love, riding a warm breeze, feel me caress your face
The glow within you lights my world, your soul blessed with sweet grace
Listen my love, the song of the birds, they sing a special love song from high above
Hear this love song my love as it enters you, a very soft melody about our love
I come to you my love, in so many different ways, each and every day
You pull me towards you with the power of your love, helping me to find the way
My love, see the glow of the moon, a soft orange, against the star lit sky
In through your eyes, filling you, sometimes making you cry
I come to you my love, wrapping my arms around you, giving you all my love
Feel the rain my love, misting down, soothing your skin
I reach out and touch you, my touch is warm with my love, and my tears begin
I come to you my love, to be with you, to touch you, each and every day
With your love filling me, for me to cherish, I wouldn’t have it any other way
My love, you are my life, you orbit my world, I am blessed with your sweet grace
I shut my eyes, I dream of you, I see your beautiful face
You have touched my soul, you give your love to my heart, you fill me with warmth each night
I seek out, and listen for, my love, your whispers in the night

Rescinded

I wrote once to a nightingale
A hawk tore my song apart
Pledged with a feather, neér to fail
To soothe my broken heart
The talon raw still drips with blood
The foggy lies like feathers flies 
Tears make a man only better mud
I hope there is no empty skies.

Snakes are in the ancient nest
Nor egg nor nestling comes again
The song is stone within the breast
A gift of stone I shall not own again
The serpent hisses, the hawk sleeps
I know when a season is truly done
What I gave my honor forever keeps
The serpent winks and smile at the sun

A Man Who Sang the Blues

I once heard a man who played the blues,
Whose voice told of unhappy news
His old lady left him at heartache hotel.
Hit the bottle to forget her womanly smell

Played his guitar with sunken eyes,
Strummed the chords that told of goodbyes
From within him a beautiful song arose,
But it was around him that a quiet crowd arose

They listened to every word he sang,
And heard the strings when they rang
No one dared to make a sound
The woes of his lost love filled the air around

They all loved him for what he wrote
A brokenhearted poem with a musical note
And there were only two who hated the song
The man, and the woman he had sung of all along

She stood in the back and saw those who listened
People with tears in their eyes that glistened
And although she was deep within the crowd,
Her only company was the voice of the blues, heard so loud

Realized the story told of her leaving
The pain she caused, his drunken grieving 
The blues player and the woman cried with everyone
But the tears wouldn’t stop even after the song was done

Sings the tale of the sorrow of a broken heart
How sad it is, to hear of a love gone apart

Adieu To Unheard Melodies 26

The Boatman’s Song 					26 Last on PS
							Rest would be 
concluded in the book

This story of the Boatman’s Song is taking a break/stop here,
As enough of its Episodes I have already placed,
On this wonderful sight which we call and know as PoutrySoup. 
The love and appreciation which I got from you all 
Would linger and glow like a lamp light in my heart

Stories come and stories go
Poems also come flashes on board, illuminate us and one day go
Sometimes they leave an impression on our mind and heart
But often they vanishes like a Tarang*(wave)
Which after rising high and very high
Just mingles in the sea of life, leaving no impressions
As if we never saw them high or low

This is the beauty of life
Which keep on moving without ever stopping
Playing, singing, loving or hating, smiling or laughing
Reading or writing or singing a melody touching our hearts
Or get busy in life without wasting a minutes time
Or waiting and waiting for something to happen
Which sometimes takes place 
And often keep us only waiting 
But this is how the life moves on?

Note: What happens in the ceremony celebrations on Vasant* at the Kingdom of Malla*
And what happens to the Princess and Urveshi  who were in love with the Boatman,  who 
was actually the young Chandragupta Maurya,* of the Ancient India who ruled between 321 
BC to 298 BC under the guidance of his Guru Chanakya*, whose role was the base of 
establishing largest ever a kingdom in India and how he married the daughter of Seleucus* 
the Greek warrior whom Alexander* had appointed after he left India. Chandragupta  
expanded the boundaries of his kingdom up to Iran in West, while coving all most the whole 
of current India. He established a Great kingdom and his period is known as the golden 
period of India History. 

These & many more interesting characters would be things to be covered in the book I am 
writing as an epic. The book would also be coving what happens to Urveshi* who was waiting 
for the Boatman and how long she stays on earth to see more of his love the Boatman.

      * Chandragupta Maurya Boatman’s actual name in the ancient History
      * Chanakya. Name of the great teacher of Chandragupta. He met Alexander in

Yet There


After the last time I heard your voice
I came out of the room where I stayed
At the sight of the not so bright day
Your voice came reverberating
Mild and solemn and succinct 
Like a love song to love birds
Every moment was unique and worth while

I looked around 
You were there but I could not hold you
Your scent filled the air
And the voice was loudest and so very close

Where are you?

This assurance was strong and the confidence was sore
Here comes the love of my life
The love song my heart delights 
The warmth that livens my day
The solace that keeps my heart

My strife is over
My labor is gone
Behold my heart has come to me.

A Love Song

A beautiful song for you my dear;
A beautiful melody for you to hear.
Full of feelings that I call love
A special song written with the magic touch of the white sky above.
A lovely song for you to live in peace;
A lovely melody for your heart’s pains to cease.
Full of passion made into art;
A song that expresses every single feeling that is born inside my heart.

I'd Like to Love You

I’d just like to love you but, you love to just like me.
I really want to have you but, you’d have to really want me.
We are at different places in our relationship,
So all I can do is sing about you, but at least this song’s a hit.

Seems people everywhere can really relate to this song,
About love going nowhere in a relationship all wrong.
Everywhere I sing this song the fan base really grows,
Because it’s full of music and words that they already seem to know.

Sometimes it’s a guy who loves a girl, a girl who loves him not. 
Sometimes it’s a girl who in her heart cupid’s arrow has been shot.
Sometimes they’re young and sometimes old, sometimes straight and even gay,
It doesn’t matter who they are they all hurt in the same way.

I’d just like to love you but, you love to just like me.
I really want to have you but, you’d have to really want me.
We are at different places in our relationship,
So all I can do is sing about you, but at least this song’s a hit.

People tell me everywhere that I am singing their life’s story
And wonder how I knew their feelings in all its heartache glory
Seems their misery loves my company when I sing their song
And after the first verse is nearly sung they can already sing along.

The sad thing for me really is that you haven’t even got a clue
That when I wrote the words to this song I wrote about me and you.
You think we have a beautiful thing being friends through and through
And it never clicked inside your head why I’m so good at singing the blues.

I’d just like to love you but, you love to just like me.
I really want to have you but, you’d have to really want me.
We are at different places in our relationship,
So all I can do is sing about you, but at least this song’s a hit.
So all I can do is sing about you, but at least this song’s a hit.
So all I can do is sing about you ...
But at least this song’s a hit.

It doesn't have to be that way

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY     
Verse 1:
Darkness creeps up to the city, covers it with night.
A tiny little candle gives me warmth and light.
Kettle’s whistling, calls for coffee. I would like it strong
I don’t call you. You don’t care. Oh, we’re both wrong.

Bridge:
I don’t want to see the closed door when we part.
I don’t want to feel emptiness in my heart.
I don’t want to cry over my loss.
You’ll come back to mind as a shadowy ghost.

Chorus:
It doesn’t have to be that way
Why don't you stay? Why don't you stay?
Stars shine out on your way back home.
While I’m left to be all alone.
Th’ sunrise will come back from the dark.
A’ new day will reignite the spark.
Love will come back again through fears.
As raindrops wash away my tears.

Verse 2:
I gaze out of the window, waiting for you at night.
All I want is to see you again tonight.
Fading feelings are so deep that I’ll never forget.
In the memory of you I have no regrets.
Bridge:
Chorus:

Verse 3:
Tender whispers from your lips and the warmth of your hands
Don’t leave me alone, but for now we’re just friends.
And I know exactly what price I would pay,
To be held by you day and night, night and day.

Daniel's Song

Daniel's Song

all the tears I cried over you
all the heartache and fears
you put me through
the break-up of a lifetime
you were the love of my life
I'll never love another man
the way that I loved you
it was like a dream, the dance we shared
but you chose the road less traveled
a choice without affair
and now I sing Daniel's song
a song about you and me
Fort Jackson seems so far away now
memories of a love that could never be
do the stars over Korea look like Lubbock
does the moon ever make you sad
do you ever smile when you think about me
and all the times we've had
I think of you in the middle of the night
or when I hear a certain song
I can still see your bright smile
and the lips I was never meant to touch
and now I sing Daniel's song
a song about you and me
Fort Jackson seems so far away now
memories of a love that could never be

you wanted to know all my fantasies
and in you I could see them all come true
but how could I tell you that you were the one
I wish I could give my life to
you said I should be glad for the journey
not quite knowing how it all would end
my life in a world so far away from yours
a heart too lonely for you to comprehend

and now I sing Daniel's song
a song about you and me
Fort Jackson seems so far away now
memories of a love that could never be

In between two trees
I lay with my mat 
tied on both 
Trees
Oh I love the wind 
The shade from the trees are nice and sweet
Like I relax
Without a stress 

11 11angels time
It started to get dark 
And the stars was 
On the sky
I was in a good mood
As I count the stars 
And make wishes 

11 11 angels time
I had a voice speaking 
To me saying
wish come true 
When is at 11 11 
eleven eleven 

11 11 angels time
I asked why will wish 
Come through at 11 11
The voice replied
Is the time angels grant wish 
To every soul that live with 
Love

11 11 angels time
Lastly the voice said
Love is 
Lift others 
value earth l.o.v.e
For out of sacrifice all
Was made with out a cost.

What If

How do I approach him?
What if...
What if I flew in
Jumped outta big bin
Gave him a really nice pin
What if I bumped into him?

How do I talk to him?
What if...
What if I talked about music
Told him I hate glue sticks
Showed him my brand new kicks
What if I started stuttering?

How do I tell him how I feel?
What if...
What if I wrote him a letter
Played a song that isn't bitter
Wrote it in the clouds and did him one better
What if i lost all emotion?

How do I make this work?
No need to pout
I've got it all figured out
I'll talk about music
Walk up and amuse him
Share a song not to confuse this
Then in the end
We should be really good ...friends
What if it all falls apart?

The Boatman's Song 25 of Many

The Boatman’s Song 					25/ Many

The Boatman left the chamber of the Queen
And vanished in the darkness, to give shape to his schemes
One by one his men got hold of all the Guards
Some of them were totally eliminated
Some duly tied-up, were put behind a locked chamber like bar  

And some of them were made, temporarily limp like 
To take care of their master the Traitor
Before the dawn was about to approach, 
The Boatman got hold of the real traitor
And after a fierce fight, he got hold of him 

The dawn came next morning, but it was a different Sunrise
It was the festival day of Vasant* and 
The Sun came that day with a different shade and shine
The mist and long dwelling fog had vanished that day
Although the season of Spring has yet to set its music 
But the Palace was singing a different tune

After many years the Palace was feeling a thrill and joy
As its most beloved the King of Malla*, the Queen 
And the Princess were enjoying a new Sunshine
The Palace was free today, from all the vicious men 
And many of them were put before the King in his court
To put them on trial and to give them the punishment

It was a different Court assembly, after many years
When the King was sitting on his throne, with a face smiling
The court was full of all the courtesans and council members
Where all the respected citizens, of Malla* republic were invited
And they came to attend this extra ordinary assembly 
Called by the King, on the auspicious day of Vasant Utsav*

After many years the court of the King assembled 

The king heard the group and its head traitors 
And gave them a chance to tell the truth
And once he was convinced, 
Gave punishment of death to their chief traitor
Along with all those, who were hands in gloves 
Somehow, one black sheep escaped the Palace,
To continue the legacy of his father’s hatred
It was the son of the chief traitor


After punishing the traitors of the Kingdom of Malla*
The King announced a special ceremony
Which held in the Kingdom, never before in its history
To honor the Heroes of the today’s ceremony

Song in The Colorless Forest

I send my heart to caress your hair
To console your heart sank in your tear. 
I send my heart to hold your hands, 
To advance and leave the past in the rear; 
Along the depth, by the alley of thorns;
You soaked in your former love's storm.
 
I send my heart to whisper your ears
To savor the small bird's melody, 
Perched the branches of revivable trees
While the wild fire has disappeared.
We’ll enjoy the song peacefully:     
The light lyric of feeling free.  
 
The small birds sing the song of life:
One day the forest could be revived. 
Silently we mind the birds’ song,
Our hearts spring and sing along.
Uneasily we advance our steps
Forestalling to fall in the old depth.

happily ever after

Every time I look at you my feelings run deep. 

Your eyes they speak to me with words I will keep

They tell me that we will always be together

Happily ever after now and forever.

Your tender loving kisses makes my heart want to sing

A song of love from deep inside, to me your everything

And each night I ask the Lord for one more day

Just so I can have the chance to say

Happily ever after like Mom and Dad

Heaven is something we've always had

Our love is a precious thing one of a kind

Kept safe within our hearts for us to find

That happily ever after we will stand.

Happily ever after hearts hand in hand

And oh sweet angel of mine

Without you I am not alive

For you are the only light I seeeeeeee 

And through all of the ups and all the downs 

With all of the love we have found

I will build my home with you and live anywhere

Happily ever after now and forever

Sing A Song For me

Let me hear the melody-a sweet sweet melody
One that even the birds can't sing.
Let me feel the beat-a soft, strong beat
Whose rhythmn reaches my very soul.
Till the evening dawn
Chases away the sun.
Sing a song for me-a sweet sweet melody
One that even the angels can't sing.
Wrap me in warmth-written just for me
Cover me from my head to my toe.
I want to feel I belong
Turn my house into a home.
I climb the stairs-turn the key-
Say you'll sing a song for me.
Sing a song for me-a sweet sweet melody
One which only my heart can sing.
Oh if only you really knew-
How much I love you.
Sing a song for me-one you ordain yourself
My shattered broken dreams mend on a shelf.
Sing a song for me-bring freedom to my soul
Maybe I'm just too demanding..
This is what it sounds like when doves cry.

The Boatman's Song 17/ Many

The Boatman’s Song                                    17/Many

Such was the beauty of Urveshi*
Who was trying to resemble like the YogMaya*
Who too was no less beautiful than Urveshi*
Charmed by the beauty of his love, standing on the sand 
The boatman sang an enchanted melody
The song was devoted to his love in waiting
It was a song in praise of her astonishing beauty

By listening the boatman’s song, Urveshi felt as if
She had lost her heart now completely
She got overwhelmed by his voice 
And hearing that song, which was touching 
Both her mind and heart’s 
And every nook and corner of her entire self so intensely 

The song took her into an ecstasy of unseen joy
Which was intoxicating her mind, like a strong wine
She even forgot the passing of time,
Till her friend Tarang whispered in her ears
Urveshi wake-up from your intoxication
The boatman is still in deep love with the Princess 
And all his songs are for her and in praise of his love only

Tarang* again reminded Urveshi, still you have a chance   
Avoid going close to him even unknowingly
As then heaven would not be a place for you
And the boatman can not be blamed, for not accepting you  
When he would find that you are not his love 
And you are Urveshi,* trying only to create an illusion  
While resembling his dear love only

Enough evening had passed by that time
Urveshi realized that what Tarang* was trying to say
Was the reality of her one sided love for the boatman

Again an Inner conflict in Urveshi’s mind

Her mind was still arguing and asked
Urveshi* stop the boatman’s beloved to reach him
You can still win the heart of this man
Forget about the ethics of life
Love is blind and it has no bindings
You can still make your own heaven here on earth

Her heart again intervened presuming well
That heart’s voice may not reach and break
The confusions created by her mind
But a miracle happened, caused by Tarang*
Her heart voice this time was heard by the mind
And Urveshi* realized the future of her love
Which would perish and may blow in vain
The moment his love actually arrives

Urveshi immediately decided to tell the truth to the boatman
That she was only his friend and his well wisher
Who has come to hear his songs from heaven 

Ravindra                                                                to continue…

Sweet lady I remember 

doesn't seem that long ago

we were both so young and alive

in love's new born glow

laughing in the sunshine 

we could love away the rain

don't you think there's a chance to bring it back again


Started mixing our whiskey

with something much too strong

we both made a turn somewhere

and we both knew it was wrong

I know I left some scars on you 

I know how you must feel

Don't you think with some time those scars could heal

but we keep changing like the seasons

and we get uptight for different reasons

but that would make my song too sad

If we gave up on what we had"

Now we both settled down some

and loves' sweet glow is gone

If there ain't some way we can bring it back

I don't know if we can carry on'

There's no fire burning now

but there's still some coals I swear

I know we could get that fire burning 

if we gave ourselves some air

So I'm sorry I upset you

I'm sorry that I made a scene

I'm sorry that I got uptight

and said things that I didn't mean

but I never will forget you

and how the time has been

If there was someway I could make it right

I would do it all again

but we keep making up excuses

and it seems like trying would be useless

But I can't picture life without you

I still love everything about you

And we keep changing like the seasons

and we get uptight for different reasons

but that would make my song to sad

If we give up on what we had

sweet lady I remember

doesn't seem that long ago

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

I ASK YOU

Verse 1:
I ask you what’s wrong but you won’t say a word
So I had to hear it from a little bird
She told me you were having second thoughts
And the remainder of her words left my stomach in knots
She claimed you had found someone new

Verse 2:
When we first met our love was such bliss
I can still remember the taste of your kiss
But sometime since then we’ve grown apart
I guess I’m no longer the need of your heart
Especially after all we’ve been through

Bridge:
Sometimes I wonder if it’s true
Now it’s time that I ask you

Chorus: 
Does this song remind you of me
Or is it another girl you see
Do you picture the nights we’ve had
Way before everything went bad
Or do you see another’s face
And is it Her memory you can’t erase
If it is just let me know
It’ll make it that much easier to go

Verse 3: 
When we’re together something feels wrong
I keep thinking of how we’ve been together so long
Maybe you’re bored, or was it just me
Was I not everything you hoped I would be
Tell me you haven’t found someone new

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Chorus

Does this song remind you of me
Or is it another girl you see

Song of the Heart

Song of the Heart

Quietly,
pianissimo,
the melody begins
softly,
smoothly,
as the wooing takes center stage
wrapped in gossamer strands of moonlight
her eyes twinkling with the stars
glisten as tears of unbridled emotion slip down her cheeks.
He caresses her heart, gently tempting to her to wing
the song intensifies, crescendos,
and her heart bursts forth into the starry night
pounding with the timpani,
resounding with the woodwinds
and as the song quiets once more,
gently alighting 
back into the hands
of the man who set her free.
They nestle together in contentment
as their hearts pound, 
echoing the song in their souls,
anticipating their journey into the unknown symphony.

peacefully

Try to stop from falling
But it’s much too late 
 Left my heart open 
 Love walks through the gate

Love is strange to me 
 Don’t know what to do
 Watch the big bang theory 
And drank a beer or two

Morning is here 
 Still feeling the same
 Had a talk with my heart
But knows it’s me to blame



When love comes in your life 
 Turn your world upside down
 Can tear you to pieces 
When you hear a love song

Heard the song - if
 On the radio
It’s a nice song 
Heard it long ago

Now love’s in my life 
Why is she so far?
Got to fly to her
Can’t drive in a car

So what happens now?
She’s not in my life 
But my heart
Needs her to survive


 She’s sleeping now
So peacefully
I worried about her 
Being so far from me

But who do I tell this
They can’t solve my problem
So I think when I go home 
Will write another stupid poem

She know how I feel
And every day my hearts die
And if she leave this world
She don’t want me to cry

Sometimes she gets so tired
Think her heart will give
And how will I know
 The day she cease to  live

Know she’s sleeping peaceful
Won’t call her tonight
Hope she dreams of eating  ice cream 
Under a rainbow so bright

The Close of Chapter 19

Sometimes I just wish I would run out of tears
I’m so tired of crying, so tired of being scared
But I’m not the kind to let go, to give it all away
How can I set things right, if I can’t find mistakes

I take back every word that I’ve said
Every feeling, that I said I felt
Now I don’t care, can’t you see
You’re the one that turned your back on me
You turned your back on me

Stop telling lies your intents aren’t that righteous
You didn’t leave for me for things that you might miss
Your agenda is selfish stop saying you’re selfless
I can’t live through writing another song about this
Every thought that I think (Is about you)
Every word that I speak (Is about you)
Every line that I write (Is about you)         
Why do they have to be about you
Why do they have to BE
Why does this song have to be about you
Why can’t I just… move on without you

Sometimes I just wish I would run out of tears
I’m so tired of crying, so tired of being scared
But I’m not the kind to let go, to give it all away
How can I set things right, if you’re who made the mistakes

You lied to me with all that you said
Every feeling, that you said you felt
Now you don’t care, can’t you see
You’ve made yourself my reason for bleeding
You’re my reason for bleeding

WHY CAN’T I MOVE ON
You’re intents aren’t that righteous
WHY DO I STILL HOLD ON
You’ve never been selfless
WHY CAN’T DRY I MY EYES
You’re something that I miss
AND MOVE ON
And move on

CAN WE JUST MOVE ON

Her Sad Song

Sitting in her room,
All day long.
She is sitting there singing,
Her own sad song.

A song about misery,
A song about hope.
A song about a problem,
and how to cope.

She wants someone to love her,
She wants someone to care.
But when she turns around,
Nobody is ever there.

She wants a family,
and some friends that she can call her own.
She wants all these things,
So she doesn't have to be alone.

She's hoping someone will love her,
She's hoping someone will care.
She hears something and turns around,
And notices that nobody's there.

Song by the Bridge

A song by the bridge,
we sang towards the end,
when the sky seem dim,
and the sun seeking refuge.
A song by the bridge,
when an ocean between us,
we watch the tides apart,
singing the chorous together,
A song by the bridge,
the common thing we have,
when the feelings were gone,
a song by the bridge,
a song of memories,
will remain our song, 
till we meet ashore!

Samantha`s song

The lyrics roll off her tongue, the meaning is heard ...it is felt from R & B to the 
sweet soul of an Oldie, even the loud hard rock songs she hits every note, 
  like a play are a lip singing Deva she puts on a great show, she sings it with 
emotion, with passion she sings it as if it was Samantha`s song  
   A sudden stop, her little face blushes for out the corner of her eye she seen  
daddy's been watching " what" she ask`s "nothing" as I clear my throat.
I seen beauty when she was born, I fill the love from a daughter to a father  when 
she smiles at me , it makes me forget all that is wrong.
   A child so much her mom so full of love trust of beauty a child that reminds me 
of some one up above her confidence, the way she speaks....it`s like no other,
   I see my eyes my face I even see the grin I gave as a child in old pictures, but 
she`s more out going, undefined, she knows she belongs,
she sings songs of believing, meaning, songs of love, she sings songs from the 
radio, from movies she even sings duets with her brother,
Listing to music I remember when she sang this song, are that song I remember 
when she sang kariokie after the first one she wanted to sing all night long.
  They tell me in her teen years it will all change that I will be dad not daddy that 
her smile will turn to a frown that she`s going to rock my world,
  I tell them that's not true, and I may be blind to it but when things go wrong she 
lifts me up in my head her music plays on,
  I think of a time when she was a little baby, I held her in my arms we danced 
and I sang to her, the song was and always will be My Girl,
     That's Samantha`s song.

Crush, But Not A Rush

(Chorus: song (rpt. 1x)): As I was raised up on my relationship life
It was hard for the one who had a crush on me
I sometimes crushed him back, but its not a rush
Even though time after time I had to blush 
He was my crush, but not a rush

(Verse 1: rap): Not trying to push on you wrong baby boy
Im telling you, you’re not dealing with a toy 
But it’s this part of me that you will never know
I know you see the love that I try to show
Now look at this broken heart you got to mend
I don’t wont to send my love
I want to share it with you
But this one person had step in my life, including others
down the road that crushed it down piece by piece
It seems as if this broken heart
Just isn’t going to be put back
paste by paste
I know its my only lips you want to taste
I know its my only body you want to feel
I know its our love you want to share
I know it seems as if I don’t care
because in my eyes you’re just a crush, but not a rush

(Chorus: song (rpt. 1x)): As I was raised on my relationship life
It was hard for the one who had a crush on me
I sometimes crushed him back, but its not a rush
Even though time after time I had to blush
He was my crush, but not a rush

(Verse 2: rap) I know my love is the only thing you want to taste 
But boy please believe that I need my space
I know its my face that you only want to see
And my heart you want to set free
Cause you tired of these skees
But Im not on that B.S.
Im on a woman stage of something so real
I know you want to feel in me
But I don’t think you see
that im not looking for love
of these so-called men
Can’t you see in order for me to keep my head up high
Is to only look beyond the skies
Because when I’m down
I know that the one beyond the skies will comfort me
And if its really your love I need
When can you show that for me
I think your really blinded by what you see
Instead of seeing the real woman inside of me
Can’t you see
That you’re just a crush, but baby boy its not a rush

(Chorus rpt 2x)

A Message From Heaven

The spring was lousy
The weather was bad
Had water in the basement
The grass grew to fast.

Four months later 
I needed a break
So I decided 
A trip I'd take.

Off to the Bank 
And the Lawyers too
They knew my Will
And what to do.

My plans were made
The house secure
I got in the car
I'm ready for sure.

And as I turned the key to get on my way
A special song began to play.
And what was that song I hear you ask
The title is "I Hope You Dance."

Somewhere in Time

That song would
always take us there.
A beach, white sand, blue water,
swaying palm trees and
your pony tail flowing down 
blowin'in the wind.

Like children, we built
castles and palaces
with the sand,
snapped photos of each other,
and watched that flimsy contraption of
paper and string floating on the breeze.

At sunset, we would 
spread a blanket, 
unpack a basket and 
lay back for a picnic 
on the beach.

Turn a different corner
we would never have met,
and faint hope would
never have soared.

Sometime following that
sunset,
in the still of the night
to angel of the morning,
the silence of your
gestures and your smiles
attracted me,
then
you said stay,
and it was complete.


Strange 
how a song 
sounds like a memory,
like a recording
of a summer's day at the beach

Sing A New Song! ! !

 Sing A New Song! ! !
   
 
  Singing to each new day a new song
Sing out Strong
Thy Life, it is thy song
Thy song is thy gift

The gift to be given to everyone
All across the earth
A song for all nations
Tribes, tongues

Songs of honour and majesty
will be sung 
Joyous sounds from many lungs
Man, Woman, Child

Rejoice, Again Rejoice
'Let the Heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; 
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it' (Psalm 96: 11) 

The skies will open up
The brightness will blind us
This is the day we meet our Lord

The Sweetest Song

Lord guide me in Jesus name
And let me sing a sweet refrain
A melody to touch your soul
A Godly song that wont grow old
A song inspired by your love
That’s sung by angels high above
A psalm that speaks of God’s own Son
And of the victory that He won
O’er the world, the flesh and Satan’s grasp
O’er all our sins of the past
He took sin’s power and made it  null
On a hill known as the Skull
‘Twas there the sweetest song was sung
When Jesus uttered “it is done”.

The Boatman's Song 18/ Many

The Boatman’s Song                                             18/Many

As soon as, his song was over and the boatman 
Came near the place,
Where Urveshi was standing on that silver moonlight sand 
He tried to get convinced, if it was his love the Princess?
Who had promised him to come very soon, 

Before he could ask any thing from her
Urveshi uttered, in her most soothing and beautiful voice, 
“O boatman, I am not the Princess whom you love
I have come here from heaven, to hear your songs 
Your love the Princess YogMaya, is not safe in her kingdom
As his step Uncle is trying to capture her kingdom 
By killing the King and even the Princess you love”

The Princess came to know, all about his treachery
When she came here with her aged father the King, 
She could not tell you all that, due to sudden arrival
Of that treacherous Uncle and his father knowing nothing
When she met you here, 
On the bank of river Ganges,
She wanted to tell many things to you
 
She could not come, to see and meet you so far 
As her palace is in the grip of her Uncle and his conspiracies
Plotted by him to soon kill the king and the Princess

Her life also is in dangers, till she faces these conspiracies 
Although your love is a lady of high ventures 
She possess tremendous strengths in her body and mind
With her expertise in fighting, with sword like lightening
But alone she can not end such men of treacheries
  
The boatman gazed her altogether with a surprise
How an Apsara like a beautiful woman, is telling me all the story
As if, she also was here and knows everything 
Happened that day, when he had met the Princess 

He thought for a moment and questioned himself
“Is she a friend or a Guptacher* of his kingdom,
Or someone from heaven, who only could know everything
And has come as a blessing of God for him?”  
 
The boatman saw her a little more deeply and thought 
That in beauty and looks, she may even surpass 
The best of any artist’s imagination
As she appears to be much above the word beauty

But why and how she knows everything about him
And even about his love, whom he had seen 
Only for few moments, 


Ravindra                                                          to continue……

March Song

The March song kisses mountain walls,
Canyons of breathing echoes,
Recording in their resumes
My whispered dialogue of farewells.

Farewells embodying reluctance,
The reluctance of renewed warfare,
Of the losing and fighting and winning,
But mostly of the losing, the dour forsaking.

A song of an ancient bronze god,
Cracked and coloured earthen ochre,
Sinewy legs planting shadows in the spring fields,
Muscled chest scarred with bloodied iron ribs.

A song of a virgin’s ambivalent regret,
Regret of surrender, of haemorrhaging sex into soil,
First love freely given, like the vestal Rhea Silvia,
To some sporadic god of death.

And a song that so clearly defines
My prayers for a future life,
Of love and peace avenged of neglect,
So reborn, reclaiming a better world.

WHO IS HE???

You hear the song Jesus Loves Me
You sing along cause you know it
but is it mere words nothing to it
a nice song you've heard 
or could it be true
would you know what to do
if someone asked you
Who is He that your singing about?
Who is He does He really care?
Can you tell me who He is?
Do you know who He is?
We tell everyone that Jesus loves them
Do they really understand what that means 
all that He did
so others could live
He's not just a man 
look at His nail pierced hands
would you know what to do
if someone asked you
Who is He that your talking about?
Who is He does He really care?
Can you tell me who He is?
Do you know who He is?
DO YOU KNOW WHO HE IS?????

Your Song

now to rearrange, or pick and choose 
from what i had, that made up you 
the scattered thoughts inside my head 
"write a song about me" you said 

i found some gems; lyrical gold 
in my snapshot box of things you told 
i strung them together, set them to rhyme 
my jigsaw of poetry in 2/4 time 

this is the stuff that songs are made of 
but i cant sing in tune 
its a shame i have dyslexia 
or i'd try it in accapella 
i know you think its sexier 

the words, i know will make you smile 
i was in love, you in denyal 
those extraordinary nights, sick with perfection 
are mirrored here in my singsong reflection 

that time we laughed so hard we cried 
rolled in the grass, stayed up all night 
dizzy whispers accross the bed 
'write a song about me' you said 

this is the stuff that songs are made of 
but i sing out of key 
this problem makes the tune flop 
sound more r'n'b than hip hop 
so i guess instead of singing 
i'll have to scream your song from rooftops

A girl like you

Yeah you’re broken hearted
So, what else is new?
And no you can’t deny, 
The fool he made out of you

After all the guys and all the lies
I guess you never learned
If you ask for fire and desire
You can count on getting burned

You’ll be better off without him
And girl you know its true
I’m singing you this song 
Cause I was once a girl like you

And just when you think life couldn’t be better
And nothing could go wrong
You find yourself listening 
To another pathetic love song

“How do I live without you” and
“We belong together”
“It’s just a little to late” and
“Always and forever”

You can drown yourself in sad songs
And cry yourself to sleep 
Or you can get yourself back out there
And forget about that creep

You’ll be better off without him
And girl you know its true
I’m singing you this song 
Cause I was once a girl like you

I’m talking from experience 
I’ve played that stupid game
I finally let go and realized
That they’re all the same

Stop trying to figure it out
Because there’s nothing you can do
Stop trying to win him back
Because it’s him who lost not you

You can dream and you can pray
But what you want is miles away
Don’t be fooled by love again
It’s a game you just can’t win

You’ll be better off without him
And girl you know its true
I’m singing you this song 
Cause I was once a girl like you

Yeah I’m singing you this song
Cause I was once a girl like you

My Lord and My Love

Take me , my love to the waters source
souls naked to each other and our course
my praise lifted the apple of  mine eye
art thou glorious , tis mine song to cry
 
You must lead my way in a walk thats True
for all the fine things I have found in you
gentle call so beckons you are my delight
your visions fill all mine day and night
 
You are too precious to leave my mind
for you I shall leave all others behind
gypsy soul has wandered the world lost
her dances with others behind her are tossed
 
You are jade like the sprouts are green
the life you've breathed into my being
like the spray of waterfalls tumbling down
I bow to what our God has crowned
 
You are gentle in a world thats cruel
and emollient that can heal a fool
you have taken whats broken and made it whole
from the world which has taken its toll
 
You are the song upon my lips
the clothing strength that girds my hips
you are the blood within my heart
the energy that fills every part
the breath of spirit which gives me life
the calm that eases all my strife
 
Your sacrifice has flowed crimson red
that you might give life unto the dead
I must meld my soul to you
so I might learn the things you do

You love me with a heart so pure
I know all time it will endure
My heart skips like the rams of mountains
you quench my thirst with your fountains

your pardon has released from the fall
tis only as I have answered your call
the melody of love did my heart soften
may you , my love enter here quite often
 
You are the shade of all the groves
the whitened wool of all the droves
the warmth that dwells in rays of light
the knowledge that gives to all insight
you are the flash of epiphany
the spectrum that brings us to our knee
as the universe moves to your will
you do with abundance our lives do fill

I Will not go till I sing this Song

I will not go so quietly; until I sing this song;
I’ll sing you every part of it; before I’m dead and gone.
I won't go away; with this song that’s in my heart;
I’ll sing you pieces every day; till I’ve sang you every part.

I’ll sing for you a love song; that the birds have chirped so sweet
I’ll play for you Flamingo songs; with a rugged gypsy beat.
I’ll reach out with my heart; and hope you understand;
I’ll offer my compassion; and hold to you my hand.

From the essence of my soul; I will sing to you my sorrow;
And sacrifice myself for you; for all your new tomorrows.
I will not go so quietly; with this song that you should see
Remember when I sing to you; I’m leaving part of me.

                                                   
            "  Do you hear the melody; behind the words I write;
              I hope it grows inside of you; and brings you rest at night.
              No I will not go; till I’ve sung to you this song;
              And if it becomes a part of you; I’m never truly gone."



Keep this with you always; it must someday be returned;
So we may live another life; and the heart has what it yearns.
It’s such an easy melody; and the words have easy rhymes;
So we can take it everywhere; until there is no time.

Never let that spirit die; no mater where I go;
I’m living in this song I sing; so reflect on what you know.
Hearts can never perish; our love can never die;
Where ever in this life you go; darling there am I.

For My Only Love

For my only love 
If I could write you a song 
it would be like rain 

It would fall gently 
upon your sweet heart and soul 
like dew on the grass 

The words would be soft 
as a wind chime on the breeze 
hanging from a tree 

And the melody 
would be the sound of bird song 
at the rise of morn 

The tempo would be 
that of rain dripping on leaves 
of the mighty oak 

All this I wish you 
If I could write you a song 
For my only love

Untitled

When the honey kissed sun falls between air 
and natures song replays. 
When it highlights your skin, defines your gloss 
and the purity of china veins. 
A mirage that appears on the back of a breeze 
suspended on the song of the birds. 
High pitched, controlled, shot from the depth 
each note is handled with care. 
The gold nugget blinks, crimson revealed 
an eye-lid restrains the majority. 
It highlights your body, devours you whole 
lacing your natural purity

* The song on the radio

The song on the radio reminded her of him again.
Their song they would dance to until dawn.
Tears dwelling in her eyes, remembering of how it
might have been, if only she had said 'yes'.

Her first love, the one who, you never forget.
Laughing, over the funniest, stupidest things holding
each other tight, never wanting the night to end.
He is married now so she heard with kids a 
good job and a drop dead beautiful wife.

Her life she dared not share with anyone. 
If ever asked she would make up stories of the day
she married her 'Prince Charming'.
The whole time fighting back the tears and the screams
she held inside for so many years.

When he came home she was always ready for him.
His chair just right, food fixed just so, kids in bed.
She never uttered a sound, or asked how his day went.
She knew better than to ever speak with out asking
him first, for if she did the beatings would start again.

He walked in again ranting,raving, slinging things everywhere.
Throwing the cat against the wall and than he came to her
She got herself up, never uttered a cry she knew better.
She goes to bed and dreams of him, her first love.
she turns the radio on and the song reminded her again of
...................HIM.

A Parting Night

Far away in the sultry night 
A horn impatient blowing 
Conscience delayed the vulture's flight 
The heart's intent is knowing 
And the candles left still burning 
And the song is playing softly 
O bed with comfort conspiring 
To break a heart ungently 
Far away in the sultry night 
Love is conquered and decieved 
The luscious apple brims the sight 
And sorrow's pale web is weaved 
I know you would not stay for long 
I felt your heart receding 
You could not dance to just one song 
Go down, your car is waiting.

DREADED LOVE SONG

The same song plays repeatedly,
Time begins to rewind instantly.
I turn the radio off and yet I hear it,
In anger and fustration on your picture I spit.

The same love song that played during our wedding,
The same song that played during years of love and caring.
I now detest it like I detest you,
Yet I have you inside my body and mind like a stuborn flu.

The years are passing now and you remain in me,
I close my eyes and see your mezmerising beauty.
I force myself to hate you with all my might,
Yet I long for you in my sleepless nights.

rules would work in a NAZI society there would be no loud talking in the library 
they Matron would walk among the computors and swing her MILLYCLUB if

the batter would be better with some butter and some soil. A man told me bugs

the same sense as ewe and eye. The semblance of an android to this human

memory of half baked love. The Pheonix is now rising up the ashes of the

 The Tutor is the elephant. The classroom is the world the students are the girls 
in love. The lady has a favorite song 

ewe aer my song 

my hearts desire 

my love of fortune 

smiling down 

my sweetYheart ewe 

my early life 

my later years 

my only love

The Teacher is a ruler and a lover of the song. 
The professor is a lover and a ruler of them all.

Never Find Love

You’ll never find anyone else like me,
Someone with so much generosity.
You’ll never be free from me.
I’ll be on your mind constantly.
No matter where you are or who you’re with,
Or who you try to get love from.
‘Cuz it’s like that song you’ll never find another
Love as good as this, 
‘Cuz it’s God whom I represent
And His love is the shhh the bomb.

You’ll never be treated like royalty again.
I gave too much for us to be just friends.
None of your fantasies will be fulfilled.
Your destiny won’t be revealed.
You’ll never find love as good as this,
Because the Master’s love flowed through me.
That is the reason for our long attachment,
And the magnetic attraction.

You’ll never be truly happy without me.
So, you can love that other girl.
It’s your loss to not have chosen God over the world.
You’ll never be able to look at anyone else with sincerity.
‘Cuz it’s like that song you’ll never find another
Love as good as this, 
‘Cuz it’s God whom I represent
And His love is the shhh the bomb.


1 John 4:8 
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.


Romans 12:2
Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that Ye 
may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect, will of God."

Woke up thinking about this song by Something for the People titled My Love is the Shhh a 
song I used to listen to  before and after 
church choir rehearsal was released in  Fall 1997 I believe.

Brunette Silhouette Cigarette

Small shaped puddle holes, Come tumbling over my feet.
Walking...scraping my hand, bleeding sweat.
Sun glowing darkness over brunette hair.

The vain made burning desires, tapping over keyboard notes.
This pain isn't the same, It is gone to cut a perpetual imagery.
Feeling that comforting embrace around five arms.

Stars stick to my eyes, making it hard to see thin blisters of pain.
While bleeding the love, Perhaps I had,
As the asphalt absorbs the love I lost that February.
I'm scared of daily sunrise, of what it might bring:
A lost memory, an outlines silhouette, a dark havoc,a song that fell out of my 
palms,
a sweet stare, a cold tear, a gasp for breath, a drop of blood...all compressed in 
an old-fashioned cigarette.This coffin will rule everything.

A sheer white dove hits the wall,
And the nearby twigs picked up a heart beat.
The electrical cords used as everyday materials:
Shoelaces and artificial belts, for over sized pants bough at a bargain store.

This song makes my heart stop for eternity.
It was short, but now it's late...It dried so quickly!
It belongs in the colorful recycle bins, we find in front of our homes.
Recycled for souls who need, dried, worn out, lonely broken hearts.

The restroom has suffered many maltreats.
It has seen many, images he wishes he never saw.
Maltreat, he calls it.
Maltreat in his walls.

Coming from sour dreams, from your room.
Scratches in the thoughts, in my chest.
On brunette head, you have seen many splatters you might regret.
You count the picture they drew of many tears, you might of wasted.
On those early months of a new depressing year.
Some few wilted roses you might see in my covered eyes,
With brunette hair...Silhouette feelings, and cigarette apparel.

Something in our Sway

There was something in our sway. Of hips and lips, of thoughts and things. 
Oh, there was something in that movement. That fluid, blessed movement of alignment and
fluidity, of morning slumber and night time’s caress. 
The kind of caress that stimulates and undulates. 
It brings the dead to awake. 
Nothing ever talked back when I spoke to the sky. Everything was empty, yet full and slow,
alive. 
I always had this feeling- this waiting, dripping song. It leaked into my soul and sat
there with a grin. Everything amused it, it sang of snow and sand. It sang of eyelashes
and the paper-thin touch of skin. 
I never listened when it sang to me, I knew no one else could hear. But when I stepped
into your light and widened my eyes and blew open my heart, the song it sat in silence. 
It listened. 
Defeated yet inspired, it traveled through my mouth. 
It parted my lips and left, it’s course led straight to yours. 
Just like the sky, I felt empty, yet full and slow, alive. I sat there with a grin. My
soul had found it’s friend. 
Now all I can do is give that song, receive that song and keep it free, that song. 

I’ll let us flow if you let me grow and I’ll let you see the nakedness in me, we’ll be
what we are and we’ll see what we see, we’ll do what we want because life makes us free. 

And it breaks our hearts.
 
So live and breathe and die and see, but do it as you tangle with me. When I wonder where
these feelings source, I can only say: there was something in our sway.

THE GIFT from CHINA

THE GIFT from CHINA 

In the flickering candle light,
a thousand year old legend
comes to life, caught in my sight
Beauties You brought for my delight.
I watch them radiate as they vibrate, dance
before me, bringing thoughts of You, every night
into my consciousness, my mindfulness of what was.
I see in You, as They, a beauty that would turn the moon,
that would silence song birds, would send them into hiding,
would take a warring man and make him a lover of peace,
the peace that comes out of the love for a beautiful Woman.
A Woman, who's inner beauty surpasses anything the eyes see.
These are what I have observed in you Xiao Ling!
Memories of all we once shared, within me still sing
a song of happiness, happiness to me you did bring.

Music

The rhythm ,and the beats are a part of  my heart.
The words , the words of  pain, sorrow, guilt, love help me to explain the 
emotions I am feeling. 
The pain and sorrow connects to my mind like a  string to a guitar.
 The melody relates to the beat of my heart. 
The feeling of  love and happiness plays and plays a sweet tune that passes 
through my ears. 
As it plays and plays, all I can do is combine the  melody and rhythm throughout 
my mind connecting   words to the emotions that I feel inside.
 As words of anger ,sadness, love  and happiness pour out onto the page, all I 
can is think about the music.
 How I can feel all the tunes that are running through my veins?
  A song, a song is but all that remains .
A song of sorrow, happiness and love relates to the feeling that I try to hide. 
But in a song my emotions appear clear. 
In a song,  all I can hear is the melody ,beats, and rhythm that convey my 
emotions to  no one but me.
 As the rhythms, beats, and melodies stop, all I am left with is the emotions that 
stay hidden  deep inside. 
Where no one but me understands the rhythm to my life.

Thread of Silk

The spider made
A thread of silk
And soon after irrevokably
Was eaten by a bird

Now thing just hang
There like me
In an unretractablw world
My life a road
That goes no where
Because of that one
Capricious bird

And I could have
Tied up its wings
Until its flesh
Stank for the worms
But a man of dreams
Will always see beauty
Even in his sleep.
So I let you fly
To sing another day.

 I shall not
Behold you sing again
Unless the wind blows up
A song 
From the emptiness
Of a motherless world.
Only remember 
Spiders are not everything
Superstition says they are
And webs are not as malicious
As butterflies would make them be
My love dangles here
With no intent to trap
Or keep
A song that will not hum
In the silence of the soul

see

Wish you could see the happiness in your own face
Witness the smoothness in your own dance
That look is reserved for me
I am The Love that lies beneath you

I Love to see a man enjoying his own life
A Man so perfect in feeling good
Please continue your optimism
It bleeds into me and I need that blood

A song can make you happy
A song can make you sad
How cool

Without Your Body

I slept through it and then i never met you, but it's okay because we've bought clocks
elsewhere. and How the birds chirp and the ticks tock; the fist hands that broken song,
into our blood already boiling. A calm washes over me and i'm each bead of your voice,
magnetized to some center. Gravity lies between; it's relative. Like the size of your
interest or the feeling diminished; relish it. Song after song until our strings turn to
nooses and our finger's slowly slip the knot. Step outside your box and cover the graves
in shadows so that flowers won't grow - Turn ur smile up, emanate warmth to the touch,
crushing bones to dust. Sever the bonds and strip the oak so that we're soaked in more
than polite. Politeness that'sa blind figure draped in your movements; where intent thus
far remains obscure. I swear it's magical-icious, this tragedy struck through broken
bridges and whispering listlessness. A thrifty spend but, dont mention it: I've already
written your will, forged your existence in fake chrome reflecting plastic toy-play guns.
Lipping twice the power of electricity on in a vacant mind, the dust swallows the air and
no longer can i breathe but we both remember promised another full fit never stop it just
keep it closer wear it in your sockets so your eyes can get some rest within your pockets
so your hands can stop the throbbing and your ache can fill the airway - you know,
without your body.

Formation

Have you seen the man whom my soul loves
does spring boundless like the antelopes afield
whose consumations thus give to herds their yield
like lightly soars in thermals flocks of doves
 
The strength of pillars in the sinews of his limbs
so skillfully lifts the music of his hands
gathers those who so listen from their stands
and bring pleasures where he whose talents spends
 
I had searched the mountainous valley's long ago
to find a soul whose depth as rich as he
so many I had scanned though did not see
the like of him in any people I did know
 
Thus to my chambers I would him chance
but he would have to leave the fields flocks
exclusive is the devotion behind doors locks
or partake the tables spread in harlots dance
 
To waltz like winged bird upon the wind
whose unseen direction comes from whence
and depth of feelings that make not sense
didst this emotion upon mine heart descend
 
Tis now two years I have you letters sent
to give mine thoughts you by song I sing
that you might understand like bird on wing
the nature of the truth in word now lent
 
From the depths of what is true these words now formed
whose intent to be like rain upon the fields of grass
that might turn attention to so unbeautious of lass
whose God has these feelings within adorned
 
So has long in word have emptied out her soul
that he might read and see what is her past
so fashion to his reason and understanding cast 
thus the secret person within might come to know
 
Could he not know that every word was given voice
to paint a picture of what is of Love and True
a gift wrapped like music in a tonal hue
that he might clearly see and make a choice
 
Thus seen like wisps of clouds in boundless sky
whose movements formed by mists and winds
invisible from where all courses begot sends
and by word have fully fashioned what is I

Where Is My Sunshine

There’s a song I just remembered
You probably remember it too
It’s called You Are My Sunshine
It reminds me of my love so true.

When you and I parted
Is the day the clouds rolled in
My sunshine left me standing
Alone with darkness within.

Just like the song says
You don’t seem to know
Just what you mean to me
No matter how much I show.

You say that you love me
And you will be back someday
But how could you take my sunshine
And leave me with only the gray.

The sun, bright it may be shining
Outside for all to see
But in my heart is darkness
Without you is how it will be.

You need to come back to me
Bring my sunshine, make me alive
For now all I have is sadness
My soul cannot survive.

My Heart Aches For You

My heart aches and hurts without you
my arms want to reach out for you to embrace
and to see your smiling face.

Remember our song "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain",
oh, so many memories that song brings,
of our courting days, and of other things.

Without you by my side, I feel emptiness,
you my lovely dear are part of me
miles apart and to you I want to flee.

My mind clouded with your image
wished time had shorter days
each day I learn t love you in so many ways.

An Old Sweet Song

A man who felt that when he walk out the door 
he walk alone and in the dark
inducing him to subject himself to something
that left him null and void
medicating his feelings
stealing his joy
traveling the road of that stuff called boy
rising above adversities
this beloved entertainer was able to see the light
he belted out an old sweet song 
with all his might 
Georgia forever on his mind
he shared the wealth
from a heart that was loving caring and kind
In March he received an apology
from the state that banned him 
Ray was welcomed back to them
his family by his side
he was not alone
Georgia was on his mind
as he sang
an old sweet song

Lorna

When tree limbs rub like crickets leg
They sing the song that speaks your name
Again and again: Lorna

When the wind will turn the door
In and and in out like an accordion playing
I hear the song that speaks your name
Again and again: Lorna

When evening turns from memory
To sleep and pillow of a weary brain
The echo of a hollow heart is: Lorna.

The Lingering Word

As we were driving down the road, it dawned on me just what I needed to do.  I 
turned the radio down and said I want to go home I need to talk to you.  And as 
we sat on the couch, a tear rolled down my face and you asked me what was 
wrong.  I said it's not about what's wrong it's about what's right, and why were 
sitting here tonight.  I took your hand and placed it on my chest and said can you 
feel it, my heart it's just like all the rest.  You looked at me and said what do you 
mean?  My dear, someone could love you more, much more than you could ever 
dream.  It's not that I don't love you, my sweet I do  just don't love you as much as 
I use to.  It's not that I wasn't happy or because you made me cry...you have to 
believe me, I don't choose how I feel inside.  You pulled your hand away and said 
that's enough.  Then you feel to your knees and asked the lord above; why did 
this happen to me I love her so much. You asked me is there someone else, and 
what makes him better than who I am?  I said, it's me there could be no other 
man. Then why do you act this way and why do you want to go.  I need to find 
myself I just need to know.  Know about what you yelled, I said who I am, and 
what I'm capable of, don't you understand. What if I don't want to understand, 
what if I don't want to hear; what if I held you close then maybe all of this will 
disappear.  I said it won't change a thing and I've made up my mind I have to let 
you go there is so little time. You see I have dreams and I want them to come 
true, but you stopped me in my path as I did of you.  I know you want a wife and a 
child of your own, but I want to sing, I want to write, I want a life of my own. You 
said I can change, I can be what ever you want me to be but please, please don't 
leave me.  I said you are who you are and that is why I feel in love with you. You 
shouldn't change for me or for anyone else, even if you have someone or 
something to lose.   You let me go and I walked out the door with out even 
knowing just what was in store.  I got in the car and drove away I turned up the 
radio and listen to what it had to say...and a smile appeared on my face and my 
heart felt light, it was then that I remembered that song you sang that night. I 
remembered the way you stuttered, because you were so nervous, but you sang 
with your heart. and as the song ended it's like my mind drifted away and the 
word lingered on my lips "STAY."

melancholy

I walked along the beach
and didn't think about you
as I wandered up the coast
melancholy and blue
but I don't think it was because
I was thinking about you

wasn't thinking about the way
your eyes twinkled like the stars
wasn't thinking about the way
we always held hands in the car
wasn't thinking about the way
you didn't leave your mar

I stopped thinking about the way
your love brought such delight
the things you whispered to me
as you held me in the night
all the kisses you bestowed
when you held me oh so tight

I keep wandering on the beach
not thinking about these things
not the song my phone would play
you had that special ring
it has all but disappeared
with the song my heart would sing

the sea is rushing in
and whispering a love song
that echoes in my heart
reminding me that you're gone
the short time you were here
a long time you've been gone

A Note of Love

Sing a song of love to me, long and slow
Sing it easy, sing it sweet, soft and low
I will listen day and night, ever more
To the words and music of, every score.

Sing a song of love to me, oh my own
Sing so everyone can know, love I’ve known
I will dance both day and night, as on wings
Never missing any beat, that you sing.

Sing a melody of love, I will glow
Sing a sonnet, sing an ode, I will flow
Sing a chorus with climax, I can hold
Till the end of all is come, and I fold.

Start the music in my soul, with a glance
You’ll soon realize my love, I can dance.

Lovers

I see them dancing
Across the Milky Way
I see them singing
In the sky mid-day 

Theirs  is a song
Made for lovers
Hearts rejoicing
Beating as one

They are floating
To the rhythm 
Of the music
As if they were still young

Touching, reflecting 
Back to ones
They loved
From a constellation

High above,
Today still in love
And they're still relating
To us from above

As they sail
The heavenly sky
They send a message
That there are no goodbyes

I view their touching
Movements
The universe
Their dance floor

The clouds gather
To applause once more
Clapping floating
Singing from the sky







(This is dedication to my parents M.K. and Marie Morgan, who when they were young loved 
to dance.   I got the idea when listening to John Denver singing the song "A Song For All 
Lovers".  My father has been dead for 13 years and mother who has been dead for ll years. 
They both lived to be almost 97 years old.  They adopted me when I was 19 months and 
they were 47 and 45 years old. I had trouble with the flow some words included are sent to 
me from James Frazer.)

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

I Love You

I Love You
Can't find the words so I whisper I 
love you in a song, you might disapear if
I say them outloud or to a crowd.

But you make me stand up proud with
just a whisper and a song,It only takes
three words to hear our song.

I whisper when ever your around,Is 
this so wrong because of a song, When I'm
blue you just whisper me a song with three
little words,As wide as an ocean side I
hear my song I love you.

replete

we embrace the music and the joy of our evening dance
in the dusk that falls just before nighttime settles in
no notice do we take as the moon starts its ascent
you fill me with your love--it courses through my veins

is there a better feeling, a confection any sweeter?
your head upon my breast, listening to my heart beat
whispers in the moonlight, a dance that we repeat
a song playing over and over, of love that is replete

slumber will find me wrapped up snugly in your arms
dreams of floating on clouds--softly come upon me
you awaken me with kisses and we embrace the day
as last night history lesson is once more completed

is there a better feeling, a confection any sweeter?
your head upon my breast, listening to my heart beat
of whispers in the moonlight, of a dance that we repeat
of a song playing over and over, of love that is replete

What the Soul Wants

When we speak we sing along
We take this in turns
But within this dreary song
There is no rhythm
And if I say that we are lost
The pace will grow here
The beat is set and you will go
Why must the song become fear?

If we find the perfect rhyme
And if we follow
The love can grow and in time
The gaps aren’t hollow
Within this place we are so free
It’s where we live now
The lies were never meant to be
It takes away our souls

If only life knew this law
I know that it would smile
 Love is true and is meant for all
And not just for a while
So if life’s true and we’re alive
Why don’t we try this?
Life is short and soon we’ll die
So why not live for bliss

Just sing along and know you’re here
The perfect song for all kind
Just drift along and know what’s dear
What counts is what’s inside
So take what’s lost and grasp your thoughts
Just see you’re so blind
The perfect world cannot be taught
But it’s what we will find
It’s within all minds

Such musical beauty filling all 
Lilting melodies............ 
Musical light............. 
Softly through the night

Drifting through.............

The Heartstone that glows in the Great Hall 

The precious song

Filling you......... 
With the love of all things,

The Heartstone ,so true 
Living too,

The Faerie sound 

For, some things touch you deep 
The Faeries from Castle Heartstone 
The music that they play 
Inward to seep 
This is the way of all things........... 
The magic to keep

My Velvet Princess

My Velvet Princess

As I dry these tears unbidden such a sad anniversary again claims my existence 
She’s gone; the light of my heart and song of my now desolate soul transcended to a place 
beyond my grasp and still a fledgling of right suffers an endless longing
I see no truth in that time can heal all wounds for surely this one will prove to be mortal 
I persist on this coil through my stubbornness and the will of my creator, not by choice 
My most feverent desire is to hear a laugh and see a smile that is meant only for me
Riding a hollow and worthless crescendo of success, achievement, and empty joy 
Illusion breaks a lot more to the skilled adept, so still I keep my misery to me, myself, and I 
In our time together I was mostly a simpleton jester and fool, never callous but bratty and 
overly protective 
So many; too many things left unsaid in the letters my heart never had the chance to send 
Although I’m sure she knew my one desire was always to please her and how much I truly 
cared
Two of a kind, a princess and the scoundrel like peaches with cream so much love apparent 
and shared, now the wisp of a waking dream
So now I stand alone after tasting the sweetness of bliss, one with all and yet none
The only thing she ever showed me was love and sometimes it was tough, made Sang mad 
quite a few times and once or twice I even cried
Then out of the blue on a sunny clear day she fell ill stopped breathing and died; I think a 
part of me with her
So now my princess is an angel that watches and protects me from a place I feel so close 
and yet so far
A past love yet lingers on in the absence of a present, even if in this life I never know love 
again the joy we shared meant the world to me and more
And in time through space I will someday again behold the better half of my soul 
I shed today the occasional tear and smile every time she graces my thoughts in a song with 
no end composed of an infinite love by my angel, my velvet princess.

I'll Always Remember

Where to start Where to begin
Lets just hope this isn't the end
You were the one You were the best
My baby I'll loveyou for the rest
I'll try to proceed Your every need
So you don't lave Me here to bleed
Please try to see That I'm not me
When you're not here Nothing is clear
Your love is tender I know I'll remember
The memories forever 
Can't you see You fill me with glee
I love you so much When you kiss 
When you touch Its like an adrenaline rush
 I'll start to blush I'll turn red and get flushed
Without you I feel as though I am nothing
This song I sing is a different tune
Because I know son I'll be left with wounds
'Cause you'll be gone and it will feel so wrong
Like a broken song or a lost fawn
Everyday after I'll pretend not to care
As if i'm feel his way But I won't be the girl
I was yesterday 'Cause now that you're gone
I sing a different song 'Cause you're not here
And life is not clear But my love I'll always remember
As if you were still here Our friendship forever

The last few days have been so hard to bear,
being apart you-no time to share.
Away from my love, who's so far away,
It's hard for you to hear whatheart has to say.
My heart sings a love song only your heartcan hear. 
It makes my love known, it's loudand clear. 
It sings a lullaby, a soft quiettune, 
whispers I love you, my darlin', I'll be kissing you soon.
From this day on I'll be forever at your side
No more lonely tears will you ever cry,
You'll always hear what my heart has to say
I promise you my love each and everyday.
My heart sings a love song in soft quiet tune
Come home to me Darlin and kiss me soon.

Maestro of Heaven....

The treetops dance above with the clouds
as I raise my hands and sing aloud
raindrops sparkle in swirling mist
as I raise my lips to recieve your kiss

Light from the stars,the sun and the moon
soon to fall upon natures boon,
deep vibrations which fall from above
lucky for those,such celestial love....

I'd much rather see the song in your eyes
then to try to grasp you from my mind.....

Barefoot dancing with the moist grass
as I move to a melody sweetly cast
others with their shoes on don't touch the ground
unable to feel these deep earth sounds

Maestro of Heaven....please continue your song
even if we don't all sing along,
deep within i'm dancing toward where I belong
visions of your love make me strong.....but,

I'd much rather see the song in your eyes
then to try to grasp you from my mind.....

THAT SONG OUR LIPS SING

Peaceful and bright night
full of wanderous stars
catch us kissing...
feeling so lost
in the whispering pine trees;
and there's no shame in giving
ourselves to heartfelt joys to stimulate
sensations in our warm souls!

That song our lips sing
comes from the endless love we feel;
faithful woman...steal this childish heart,
longing for dreams never
dared to be sought!
That song our lips sing
was born  yesterday,right here...
when loneliness suddenly
turned into happiness;
when we vowed never to fear
the unhappy and envious
faces of others!

Peaceful and bright night
full of wanderous stars...
fulfill our needs and desires,
because only night was made for love,
for people who never have enough to give:
like that song our lips sing!

Ripples of Music

The music
Ripples through my soul
Each note played
On the lone acoustic 
Your eyes closed
In the middle of the stage
I watch you, absolutely entranced
As your fingers work their way across the strings
The shadows of your long lashes on your face
Your dark hair scattered lightly on your head
The melody of this song carries me
Through the memories
Like a quilted pattern of emotions
A string of sadness intertwined with a fine line of anger
Your song weaves it's way into my head
Down to my heart and all around me
I might drown in it...
Your guitar took half of the song for intro
But I can tell when you are readying to sing
Although I wish you hadn't 
The guitar had pierced me far too much
I see your chest rise as you pull in the air
And then your voice... beautiful... fills the room
It complements the dark tune... but scares me
Your first dark yet luscious words sting
"How could you..."
Was all you said, three words
And then you strummed softly some more
The words echoing in my head surrounded by the dark music
You finish the song with one heavy yet soft minor chord
It fills the room, and then silently escapes
Leaving me breathless
You stand, not even bowing, and walk across the empty stage
Disappearing into the blackness
I feel tears under my skin
Rushing up to my eyes threatening to cut loose
And I let them...
They slide down my face as I draw in quiet sobs
I feel the mascara coating my face
Your song rings in my mind
And reverberates through my heart...

Sing A Song Of Love

Sing a song of love, 
Sing a song of praise
Sing a song of love for 
The rest of your living days

Sing a song of praise 
And hope will come in time
Let your song ring out 
All the way up to Heaven’s sublime

Sing a song of love today, 
Lift up your voice to sing
Lift up your voice of praise 
To the almighty King

Sing a song of offering, 
And sing it loud and clear
Sing it with all your heart and feel 
The Lord come oh so near

Keep singing your song of love, 
Keep singing your song of praise
Keep doing it with all your heart and He
Will bless all your living days

Unity of Souls.....

Come with me baby,and sing your song
come...take my hand and follow along
never should we expect,any to be fair
trust in your feelings....trust if you dare

This world is huge,with the choices so few
can only imagine,a special place filled with you
if heaven can only be found in your eyes
then let it be so....till the day I die.......

Yet,even in death,there'll be a special place
a special face,not even time can erase
with you,I believe,we have already conquered
the world with it's challenges,leaving nothing to linger

So,come with me baby,your song we'll sing together
our song will be felt....when we have joined eachother....

When The Last Song Is Sung

When the last song is sung on this earth,
I'll be standing before my King, rejoicing
my rebirth.
Oh what a day, He planned for me,
when my Kings face I see,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
Heavens Gates will open wide, and I'll be
welcomed on the other side, when all the ones
who've gone before, will be waiting on God's
Golden Shore, when the last song is sung on
this earth.
Silver clouds, and streets paved with gold,
Oh such beauty to behold, as the King invites me in, 
a place absent  from pain and sin,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
No more tears we'll have to dry, all because my Savior died,
He paid our debt on Calvary, and one day He'll come for me,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
Oh what a day of jubilee, 
when He wraps His loving arms, around me,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
When the last.. song is sung... on this earth.

Without Eyes

You speak
To some secret side of me
Some part     I can't say
Is there

Sometimes I hate you
What?   some little thing
But I always come back
Even though you'll never love me

Maybe it's more  Who you are
Than acts or words
Or maybe who you Try to be
Or who you Think you should

Maybe it's who I think you are
But maybe it's that secret side
The secret part of you
Your secret sacred song

Your song    playing somewhere deep
Deeper in me
Than my own ears can hear
Than thought can recognize

But it's you alright - You have the key to the lock
On the dungeon door on the back side of my heart
That room or tomb or womb in me
Where feelings are born    without eyes

Some secret part of me
Where no light Never shines
And in that place
Your song    is the Sun

Momma's Love

    
The wisdom that I learned from her.
    Were like pure diamonds, oh yes they were.
The one true thing I can truly say.
    Is her faith in God and how she loved to pray.
And all the years that I created much pain.
    And I figured somehow I’d cause her faith to strain.
But to my surprise it only grew and it got so strong.
    Still determined as she was to help me along.
She prayed for me with a never ending and a faithful heart.
    She prayed to God that I’d straighten up, and somehow maybe I’d get smart.
Before she died her wish came true.
    I found redemption I was made anew.
 There was a song called “ I Was The Only Hell My Momma Ever Raised.”
     That was my song it fit me in so many ways.
Mrs. Christy wrote a poem called ‘That Mother Of Mine.”
     That got me to thinking on how my mother would shine.
A very kind hearted woman that always to her, her family came first.
    When grandkids came around you’d think she would burst.
I know in my heart she did her very best.
    And if she were given a score she'd get an A+ on this test.
I know I was a lucky man to have a mother that cared.
    And so her memories that come to mind is what I love to share.
The day the Lord took her He took a chunk of me.
     And I love her so and I just thank God for sharing you see.

A Soulful Serenade


My heart sings a love song as
The red bird whistle..
A soulful serenade...

The white cap mountains open
Its door..

While each snowflake shimmer
Through the wind

Singing the sweetest melody that
Flow through the mountaintops

Such infinite harmony with such
Sweet emotion..

Felt and heard through all the land

Yearning for a romance of that of
Romero and Juliet..

The melody in tune with a love
Serenade

As the turtle dove dance to the
Lullabies of love..

My heart sings a love song as
The red bird whistle..
A soulful serenade..

Bluebird Singing

There are no messages,
There are always messages.
Look around you,
What do you see?

A blue bird,
Singing in a tree.
So happy, as happy,
As he can be.

He struggles each day,
To find food for himself,
No time to play,
No cans on the shelf.

How can he be so happy,
With the struggles of life?
He jumps around sprightly,
Looking for a wife.

His song is so beautiful,
Though there are no words.
As if his food were plentiful,
His song is for other birds.

Springtime is coming,
I’m sure he is saying.
Enough of this winter,
Time to start playing.

So when there is no message,
Look around to find,
A bluebird singing,
Maybe in the pine.

Talking with you this morning,
Inspired this little poem,
No more time for mourning,
Lets go beat the drum.

Let everyone know you’re happy,
Let everyone see you smile.
Let everyone know you’re ready,
To go that extra mile.

Bluebird singing,
His happy song,
I am sure he is saying,
It’s here where you belong.

The Song of love.

Bitter sweet is the song of love
a quivering leaf in the wind floating 
twisting turning in blazing hues of red 
spiralling down kissing the earth a promise sent
to the heart that loves.

As  the violin bow  against its strings enthralls 
melting  the stoutest heart stirring emotions buried deep
inside the nightingale sings its final song softly sweetly
into the heart that loves.

Cupid's bow straight and sure does not the heart impale
touching only the outer wall while love encompasses all
 No splinters  here of hate or envy no evil seed shall grow
only caring buds blossom here
deep in the heart that loves.

Close your eyes

   Close your eyes and think about the one person you can't wait to see in the mornings.
  
   You need no alarm clock to wake your body up when their in the room. 

   When you fix your hair and spin twice in the mirror you think of his eyes staring at 
   you. 

   You can't forget a word he says, it's like an informercial forever in your head. 
 
   You sing the song he likes most... or the one song that desribes how you feel when he
   touches your hand.

   Your constantly aroused and think about dirty stuff like channels you should just
   skip but your curious to explore when he's gone.

   You want to hold his hand, if he's a crush you demand his attention. 

   When ever you see him your heart skips. Like Keyisha Cole says " Love" Never knew 
   what I was missing I found love.

   Can't really even explain just how much he drives you insane to the point that if he 
   doesn't stop staring and just start feeling that your going to murder him. 

   At night when you fall asleep he's in your dreams and helps you sleep. 

   You wake up with a smile on your face just to face another day just to see his 
   face.
        
                   Do you even need me to tell you what you are?

                             Your in love. 

 
   Open your eyes and look around if he's not standing next to you go and get him
   because life's to short to play around.

Your Song

You played the strings of my heart
Like the master of a guitar
Strumming all the right cords
Telling of a future with every bar.

Writing a song with lyrics of love
Deception the hidden note
A melody compiled of sweetness
If only truth from the words you wrote.

The rhythm when we’re together
Pure harmony with every beat
No break in our dance of love
A bridge leading to intense heat.

If your song remains the same
The strings are bound to break
No longer my heart your instrument
Your music I’ll realize is fake.

Memories Captured in a Song

 

An old song just came on over the radio, 
   And it took me back to a happy time so long, long ago.
I was young and so were you,
    Two foolish kids having fun and not knowing what to do.
Reaching new heights as our love we shared,
    Searching forbidden places as our excitement flared.
I never dreamed our love would last for forever more,
    As I think back on that night we spent together on that sandy shore.
An enchanting night as you gave yourself to me,
    That night was made to capture all our memories.
A short time later we became wed,
    A whirlwind romance that won’t last is what they said.
Nearly forty years have passed so I guess they were right,
    We haven’t reached eternity the love we pledged that summer night.
But you know it just made our love grow strong,
    As we fell in love listening to the words you said was our song.
You said that song must have been written for just you and me,
    It captured our love forever that night, Thanks for the memories!

My Song For You

I'm so tired of writing the songs in my head,
Lyrics unheard, and the verses unsaid.
They need to be spoken or sung in a song,
Held up in captivity, imprisoned too long.
We speak to each other, words in and words out,
A murmer, the whispers, just talking, a shout.
But, the true song I'm singing stays locked in my head,
It's not even close to the words that I've said.
The song that I'm singing is my song just for you,
It's all in my head but each word of it's true.
It won't leave my lips or float soft thru the air,
But please know my song is for you, always there.
The song that I sing speaks of beauty and love,
Two birds of a feather, like the flight of a dove.
It's you and me together, holding hands side by side,
On this mystical journey, just along for the ride.
Supporting each other with a love O so deep,
Knowing the comfort, theres a love, ours to keep.
A synphony plays each note in my head,
My song for you echoes with words never said.
I hope that someday my song can come thru,
You'll hear all the words that I sing just for you.
You'll know that it yours, you'll remember each word,
It will sound like a song that I know you have heard.
Just feel the melody, so familiar from the start,
A song that you'll feel caressing your heart.
I wait for the day that my song will come thru,
You'll find that you know it, you'll sing with me too.

Untitled

magical essences surround thy song in twilight
between angel's prayer and wolf's cry
mine eyes intertwine with thine
Lost moments we share, stolen 
from stars winking eyes 
As my love doth grow in these gentil sips of night
when our lips touch and I cry 
as thou aren't mine and we are lost in sighs
Once your glory bathed me not in secret 
but in golden light, in umasked smiles 
Now we are but a whisper under the moon's eyes
with thee my shadow 
Forever by me, burning in me 
The light in mine eye, thee 
The secret that mine soul carries through the longest of days 
and I, the source of thee's call in the darkest of nights
but for these stolen moments,
we will never know completion 
as thou cannot be mine 
and I cannot be thine's
For magical essences surround our song 
the forbidden love 
of a day's heart longing for a soul of night

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.

Stood Out From The Rest

When we first met, you stood out from the rest, 
That's how I knew what we started would be a success 
I knew from the start when I saw your deep mahogany eyes, 
You got what it takes to touch me and those eyes don't lie. 

Then secondly came that warm, mischievous smile, 
Got me instantly infatuated, mesmerised for a while, 
I felt hot, my heart leapt, couldn’t believe what I was seeing, 
Deceivingly good looks, but could looks be deceiving? 

But when you winked at me I knew, no doubt, you're the One, 
My heart started racing, and I never even knew it could run 
Held my breath in tight, almost dying for the sake of beauty, 
Analysing your physique, and you were such a cutie

Wow, I must be dreaming as they turned and strolled my way, 
Still holding my breath wondering what to say 
You stood before me, blinding, radiant as the glorious setting sun, 
I've often heard about this feeling, but never knew this is how it begun.

I looked down shyly, searching the floor for clues, 
Then my song came on, you know that slow song for two
Before I knew I reached out and gently took you by your hand,
And you swept me off my feet, I didn't want to land

itune

itune him out with my favorite song
That ironically makes me think of him
Because basically I dedicated it to him 
So typical of me 
My favorite song blasting
All the lyrics match 
the thoughts that are in my head
I try to find an exact emotion
that can link up with the one
I'm currently holding
It makes me feel not so alone
  itune itune itune... out everything
so when no one understands 
I know the song in my ipod will
It might give me a revelation 
I can hear the light bulbs flicking
Did I find a new Exsistance 
By just listening to these lyrics? 
Sometimes I stay quiet
There is no need to start a riot
With the on going thoughts in my head
I carry infinite amounts of batteries
Cause I fear going dead
Than maybe I might have to get brave
Travel back to his wave link 
    After all the venting
     itune back into him and just listen
      Cause technology may understand
        But he's my best friend
              So itune in
