In A Rush To Hide The Truth

I really wish I remembered what I told you the other day
When you asked me where I was and why I didn’t call?
I rushed to hide the truth and I forgot where I put it away.

As I stand here—sweating, I feel you sensing my delay
To answer uncomplicated questions I should recall.
I really wish I remembered what I told you the other day

Since, my deceit could destroy the perfect picture I portray,
Of a good and honest man who would never let trickery befall
So, I rushed to hide the truth and forgot where I put it away.

Maybe, I could tell you I left the answer with my attaché 
Or, maybe I could just grunt and grab my chest and fall?
I really wish I remembered what I told you the other day!

Sense and reason screamed at my conscience not to betray,
But, I did it anyway; it was just so small, what could be the downfall?
Then, I rushed to hide the truth and I forgot where I put it away

Because, I thought if I told you the truth you wouldn’t stay,
And since I’m so selfish—I hope I told you I was at the mall…
I really wish I remembered what I told you the other day;
But, I rushed to hide the truth and I forgot where I put it away.

What was His Name

Pondering past loves in the dim light of age,
the memories float upward, smiles engage sounds.
Ah, what was his name that handsome man from the stage?

Blindfolded, he lifted me and reality disengaged.
The sound of the harmonica swept all around.
Pondering past loves in the dim light of age.

A serenade planned, the empty ice-rink re-staged,
I was placed in the sweet spot, I drowned in the sound.  
Ah, what was his name that handsome man from the stage?

Once unmasked, I tumbled to his arms, my eyes glazed  
like Ophelia sinking on love's waves to drown.
Pondering past loves in the dim light of age.

Oh, the places he took me, my senses ablaze
in sunlight, in moonlight, in starlight, un-gowned. 
Pondering past loves in the dim light of age.
Ah, what was his name that handsome man from the stage?

Embrace me

Embrace me like there is no other one
Time flies, we get old, changes will come
Life is short and you'll need one

Hold me deep, and as if you have won
I return to touch you now. Please..
Embrace me like there is no other one

To hold you and to keep you before you run
And if you feel there is no time
Life is short and you'll need one

Keep me close to your heart for fun
As the love I feel will keep you strong 
Embrace me like there is no other one

That will kiss you and stay for the long run
Even with cloudy skies and dark nights
Life is short and you'll need one

To love you, to make you smile and scream 
That I am here to stay, and all you need is
Embrace me like there is no other one
Life is short and you'll need one...

                                         ...Person to love!

Winter Light

For Joyce

My hands remember your brightness

Your face graces the morning

Lights up the winter darkness

You light up the winter darkness

Common serpents curse winter suns

my hands remember your brightness.

My hands remember your brightness,

the windy blood in song, on a clay harp sung,

You Light up the winter darkness.

Your warmth lights the frosty air

And you, my love basking in pale light

Thinking of you wrapped in sunlight,

My hands remember your brightness,

You light up the winter's bleakness.

Girl In Red Cotton Hose

Barn dancing, taffy pulling, bobing for apples
Enters the girl with the red cotton hose 
Riding in a wagon pulled by horse of gray dappled

Prettiest girl, girl of his dreams, her smile was ample
Asking her for a dance he's so glad he chose
Barn dancing, taffy pulling, bobing for apples

So much fun those community socials one can't grapple
At the notion, meeting new people where love can grow
Riding in wagon pulled by horse of gray dappled

Fun in the hay all the way as they rode as a couple
Now more fun inside the barn my she has cutest nose
Barn dancing, taffy pulling, bobing for apples

Bobing for apples showing her how to grapple
All the way down, show her how it goes
Riding in wagon pulled by horse gray dappled

So much fun with the girl in red cotton hose
Some day after love with her grows their children goes
Barn dancing, taffy pulling, bobing for apples
Riding in the wagon pulled by a horse gray dappled
