Life

Life is a many things
Sometimes life is a dark tunnel,
But every tunnel has a light at the end
I will be your lantern to guide the way
Cling to me and I will keep you from the darkness
Life is a giant battle.
I will be your shield and spear 
Your spear to pierce through the horrible people
Who want to harm you, 
Your shield to protect you
From the battles you cannot win your self 
life is many things my dear 
But I am here,
For you to use, to cherish, and love.
Life is many things my dear. 
But you are not alone.
I am here.

Lost Lover

The carcass of my subliminal words echo through smoke filled corridors... it is an intricate dance where the subjective yearning of broken hearts and confused minds labor.
This is the food of the poet, deep emotion transcribed through longing, like the kiss of a long lost lover... feeling her... almost touching her... but she is gone.

So you wake up to sorrow and tend the flames of the candle of your heart, feeling her... but she is a ghost... you pray tomorrow she will come... the inspiration of a lovers heart, yearning to be touched. Dancing back and forth in this mired dungeon, from the window to the wall. Wondering if there are any roses in your garden that you could pluck for her before the seasons wilt young virulent life.

The life of a heart bleeding for seasons long passed when the dreams of champagne lips was the promise of tomorrow's wedding... When you find that you married the broken shards of a schizophrenic mind. That your wife has danced away and all you can do is to curse the wind that whispers of her a thousand miles away.

But maybe tomorrow, when you tend the flames again... the wind carries memories of new beginnings... maybe tomorrow, holding hands with a lover's shy smile... maybe tomorrow, she will let you begin again. We are in love with the seasons and dark winters eventually fade to spring.

Arising Thoughts

Silent currents softly swirl
Around tree scented salty tears
Flowing forth from freshened forest
Awash from Summer’s seasoned years
Sunlight filtered through high branches
Causes mist to rise and glow
Gleaming in the golden fern
Drifting ghostly disappearing
Winsome weather wafted waves
Waking woods on Wednesday morning
Pauses kissed and shed of woe
Friendly forest fantasizes
As the life form warmly rises
Faerie elves and dwarfing dragons
Drift away in morning dew
Clarity of dawn is breaking
In the awesome reawakening
Another day is here anew
To spend in joy with you

THE THINGS YOU DO

Time to let this go 
The things you do 
The things I know 
The things that hurt me too 

These years 
So many tears 

I cannot go on 
This battle is never won 
For there shouldn't be a war, 
between two..................... 
This irretrievable flaw 

For beauty inside, 
takes time to find 
Sometimes not at all 
I cried 
Trying to reach your mind 
My heart to fall 

This flaw 
The heart you tore 
The things you show 
The things you know 


The things you haven't given 
I have forgiven 
These years 
So many tears

The Definition Of A Real Woman

(W)- A real woman knows that the wages of sin is death so she is not concerned about the wages of a real man, because money comes and goes like day and night; but true love comes just every blue moon. A real woman isn't loud and doesn't have to be the center of attention. Money is a gold-diggers virtue, while patience is a real woman’s virtue. A real woman is always wary of the image she displays to the world because she knows her children are watching her every move. A real woman’s wisdom comes from the teachings of her elders and the experiences and hardships life brings. A real woman is the wings that help a broken man learn to fly again. When you become the object of a real woman’s affection, winning is the only option.

(O)- A real woman’s main obligation is to better herself, before she attempts to become someone’s better half. A real woman is very obliged with all that God has blessed her with. When a man takes a real woman for granted, she makes up her mind to put him away into oblivion. A real woman is use to jumping hurdles because overcoming obstacles in life keeps her on the right track. A real woman doesn't spend her time worrying if failure is around the corner, because she occupies her freedom chasing her dreams in her most comfortable running shoes. A real woman is a hopeless romantic ready to be wooed with an odyssey of love with a real man by her side.

(M)- A real woman’s presence is magnanimous and captures attention because of the poised and elegant stature of her classy nature. A real woman is like the magnet of ecstasy. All women don't attend college or hold prestigious employment, but for many being the Valedictorian of mothers everywhere is the major of their lives. A real woman respects the art of marriage and believes in monogamy. A real woman’s life is the motion picture of sophistication. The mythology of a woman began within a man’s ribs and ends in the beat of his heart.

(A)- A real woman sticks to her man like glue and never abandons his side. A real woman has the ability to do anything a man can. A real woman has the power to fill the abyss of a man’s pains with joy. A real woman prays with her other half because faith is the key of remaining on one accord. A real woman will amaze you with the way she adapts to changes in her ambiance. A real woman is the architect of her own destiny.

(N) A real woman needs a man to understand and love her for everything she is and for everything she is not because a good support system is a leading factor in longevity within relationships. A real woman is the nexus between love and happiness. When you converse with a real woman you will realize that she is nimble with her every response. No man can ignore the nymph of a real woman, because it is in her D.N.A to be notable.

My Promise To You

My Promise To You

as long as I stand 
I promise you I will always be your man
as long as I stand
I will be standing by your side
you are my wife my bride my life

as long as I stand 
I will protect you
from all harm
just hold onto my arm

we will walk togeather side by side
into the sunset 
the sunset of our years

I may loose my hair or have it all turn gray
or gain a pound or two
but I will look at you with all my love
I will always see you as beautiful as you can be
as the day you gave yourself to me

never will I look at or desire another
that’s the way I was raised
like my father looked at my mother

as long as I stand 
I promise you I will always be your man
you can depend on me

The Barmaid And The Pedlar

There's an old English song called  All Jolly Fellows That Follow The PLow.  The tune works fine as is for the chorus and with the verses if the tune for the 3rd and 4th lines is repeated for th 5th and 6th. Well, it works for me but my singing has never been much hindered by tunes.



It was after that big game one long gone September,
the score line was one I’d like not to remember,
in a small Richmond pub not too far from the ground,
we all settled down with our sorrows to drown.
We were well on the way, as were most of the crowd,
when in came a young pedlar a shouting out loud.

“Sausages, sold by the yard or the pound!
Get a fresh sausage, the best to be found!
It’ll make your wife happy of that there’s no doubt,
with her very own snag she won’t need to eat out.”

Cried the barmaid, “How many do I get to a yard?”
“Madam, three if they’re soft or two if they’re hard”
She felt for the soft ones cos she wanted a lot,
but the more that she squeezed em the harder they got.
She found not a sausage was e’en a bit soft
so she told the young pedlar to go get far offed 

“Sausages, sold by the yard or the pound!
Get a fresh sausage, the best to be found!
It’ll make your wife happy of that there’s no doubt,
with her very own snag she won’t need to eat out.”

Said the pedlar, “Why madam no need to be rude.
And in fact what you told me was verging on crude
But you don’t look so bad for a foul mouthed old sow
so step on outside, if you like, with me now.
If you play your cards right I might squeeze your left breast.
If I find I like that I might squeeze all the rest.”

“Sausages, sold by the yard or the pound!
Get a fresh sausage, the best to be found!
It’ll make your wife happy of that there’s no doubt,
with her very own snag she won’t need to eat out.”

Said the barmaid to pedlar, “You are a right jerk,
I’m a barmaid and never do mission’ry work.
But if you're near to the shops and you buy me some eggs,
I might squeeze that there pimple you’ve got ‘tween your legs.”
Then she said something that made the whole crowd guffaw,
“And will you stop off at home and please check the back door?”

“Sausages, sold by the yard or the pound!
Get a fresh sausage, the best to be found!
It’ll make your wife happy of that there’s no doubt,
with her very own snag she won’t need to eat out.”

The absence of touch

The absence of touch attaches itself 
To the narrow whisper of his heart beat. 
Footprints echo in loving embrace 
Of his fathers mummified conscience
There are memories that rise like the sun 
On days when the leaves aren't kept
There are days when the rain won't come
All he wants to do is look outside And see him starring back.

SHE WAS FOR HIM

She Was For Him.

She knew no one else
desired no one else
required no one else
She was for him.
Her interest never wandered
cared not who or whom was 
also astounded by her beauty
never cared to do more 
than look her best - just for him
whomsoever caught a 
glimpse by chance 
would find her eyes
gazing up at him.
She was oblivious to better 
looking on lookers,
that stared and drooled;
Her body was for him
only for him. He knew this
and he gave her the world.
Because he was also 
made just for her.

Propositioned on Poetry soup

Propositioned on Poetry soup

When I logged on the Poetry soup
Last night, I was amazed
A girl there asked me to be hers
Oh, I was more than phased
Because my wife, she reads these things
And she was not amused
I tried to make her understand
But to listen, she refused

Now I’m a man of seventy one
My lustful days are gone
I’m growing old and gracefully
I don’t want that carry on
Trying to ruin my harmony
I’m here to write my songs
And this be all I want to do
This woman got me wrong.

But anyhow, my wife she wrote
To the guys who run this show
She told me in an angry way
That these guys, they should know
They wrote her back with no delay
Said the comment, it was spam
I’m glad they blocked this silly cow
Cause she’s not worth a damn.

The Winged Man and His Wife

Once in a land full of life
At least that's what I was told so
There lived a happy man and his wife
Who smiled and watched the birds go

One day as they were watching the birds
The old man had flipped his hat
For he had said only a few words
And it was that he could fly like that

The wife then began to frown
For the man had simply gone mad
So she got ready to leave the town
Which made the cheery guy sad

He swore to her that he would fly
So the wife had grabbed her things
She opened the door and said bye
And when she left, the man sprouted wings

A few years had come and gone
The wife grew old and watched time pass
One day when sitting, she heard a song
That sounded from her fifth floor window glass

'my love,' it said, 'I now have wings.
my love,' it went on, 'I wish you would see me fly.
my dear, come look at me, drop your things.
I wait by your window, perched in the sky.'

The wife got up and looked out the pane
She froze at the sight she had saw
Her husband flying, or was she insane?
He smiled at her dropped jaw.

'My love, come with me. Fly in the sky.'
'I can't,' she shook her head
'oh come on. climb out. I promise you won't die.'
So she climbed out, and was never seen again.

My Wife is in Love With Another Man

She said it, yesterday,
That she is in love
With a


Wonderful
Wondrous
Resourceful
Reliable
Happy
HOT
Man

Ironically, it did not breed in me
A feeling of:

Resentment nor
Ravenous-ness nor
Jealousy nor
Jeopardy nor
Betrayal nor
Bitterness.

Because I was the other man
A transformed soldier of my wife

China sets

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good neighbors stroll by 

Cause he’s something to look at
Can pick him out from bustling restaurant
  just by his gait

Cause he’s something to look at
got a wide mouth, gaping grin 
 always fashionably late. 

When he’s nervous, 
his posture is fleeting. 
it’s unfitting, 
because he’s got the world together. 

When he’s nervous, 
his words 
string together like magnets 
across a refrigerator door. 

But then-
I’ll say something ‘bout my world views
and you’ll suddenly deliver the quickest line 
and I’m laughing
finally i’m light 

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good, good neighbors stroll by

THE LABOR BALLAD

The long awaited day now comes,
With cries along with bells and drums,
Her belly throbbing, spinning-chair,
For birth, for labor they prepare.

There lots of people shouting names
And nurses playing trolley games,
The doctor came as water broke
'To labor room', the sisters spoke.

The cries were roaring piercing ears,
The friends were filling, hopes and fears,
They rise their hands and ask to god,
To ease her pain while crying odd.

The labor room was quite something,
And doctors wearing apron string,
The beds were crowded lights were dim,
But doctor peeps and makes a grim.

The nurse then speaks 'the time ain't right'.
But patient's pain was total fright,
Again the doctor comes and peep,
To see the cervix while she weep.

The legs were wide the lights were bright, 
The cervix ripe and pain was right,
She holds the edge while pushing hard,
And doctor waiting, taking guard.

The hair is seen and doctors smile,
The time is wrote on nurses file,
The head is out, the shoulder's out,
The boy is out, the sisters shout.

With cheer-some tears, she sees her son,
The faces bright, the pain was done,
The heart is blown, the sheets are thrown,
The drinks are served, and heavens shown.

The grandpa born, and grandma's dove,
The husband takes the boy with love,
The joyful kiss on tiny feet.
While sweets are served in blissful heat.

The car arrives to take her back
The kins then walk as wolfs in pack,
But cries are heard in labor room,
With smiling faces, lilies bloom.

Don't ever steal her man

Don’t ever steal her man

She’s the perfect little lady
The greatest wife of all
Most people who would know her
Will say ‘she’s wonderful’
She be a loving mother
A cook of some renown
But if you try to take her man
Then she’ll soon put you down.

She’s filled with generosity
She’d give you her last dime
She’ll never hurt another
She’d not commit a crime
She has a lovely temperament
She likes to have her fun
But if you try to steal her man
Then hey, you’d better run.

She’ll always sacrifice herself
And leave herself to last
Her heart is filled with so much love
Her magnitude is vast
But if you hurt her children
Or try to steal her guy
Then you had better flee from her
Or you might even die.

In Youth-less Age

In Youth-less Age
 


Though gentle, hopeful drifts we brood,
but age our wont be kind enough,
in threescores is when life imbued,
will partial be the earthly stuff;
but you'll still be my fancy then,
when Suns shall be the Shallowest,
and dry as those days --my fingers, pen!
Diluting the persistent best;
then shall I my own mind bereave,
when servile times would near a close,
but will your eyes, mine still deceive,
that greater truth than life propose.
The understanding of our earth,
up till we stay, --the way shall give,
entwine when with a lovers mirth,
we not our age but more shall live;
there I shall be a part of you,
though life may still not worthy be,
but time the hearts as one does sew
and breeds the soul's eternity.
 
Soon ladies fine with auburn head,
in youth's subservience shall grow,
with shadows white and lips blood red,
to whom the haste --the world will owe;
but, by the words that reason frowns,
and those that cost if cared for less;
within the gardens, across all towns,
just you my dame this heart possess,
as your my gardens cherished fruit,
could time nor age do you wrong,
your grace can shift a hand from mute,
such do my rhymes to you belong,
and the words, claims that come to me,
be their center, and my days renew,
until the time this soul is free,
and life us quells, an end pursue;
the end of the sojourn we made,
shall love then still be intense more,
when breaths and sight move to a fade,
like youth, your age --I shall adore.

A Man's Life

Oh, somewhere there is singing
Somewhere there is grace
Somewhere there is laughter
A smile on every face

But I am here to tell you 
About a place so cold and drab
It makes you shiver violently
And dulls the joy you have

This place is not in the Heavens
It is not upon the land
It’s not over the oceans
And it’s hard to understand

As long as I walk the earth
It is always set apart
There’s nothing more mysterious
Than what’s in a woman’s heart

You think that you are pleasing
You think you do what’s right
But you never had a chance
You end up in a fight

So I tell all you poor men
Don’t even pretend to try
Just live your life and stumble on
And hope that soon you’ll die

God gave me you

Love's undeniable journey 
explores all life,touches an 
amazing earth only you and
I can share between time.


All ups n' downs come with
Fortune n' price, but together
We will shatter a mountain of
Rock.

A place we can go hide closely 
cuddled cave, against the 
Closure of your misled arms,
Wrapped tightly around a spin
Of Saturn's that ring me.

As Pluto's fire, breaks guard 
closer to the sun.....Where GOD 
GAVE ME YOU] And an UNchained 
melody to sing.

Sugar and Honey

Sugar and Honey ©2013

Who could have known those Men in Black would be the groomsmen to serve as the royal escort for a date where time stood still. Minutes turn to hours turn to days the blaze of passion brighter than orange and yellow sun rays. Never again alone the search that was so cold now inflamed with life—passion roaming nomadically through radio waves with 37 wishes of “I love you”. Wishes that tell of a spell never to be broken cause 37 is prime impossible to divide.

From Lookout Point the view is endless. Hues of purple and red shimmer as clouds float by carefree smiling cause they know a secret we've yet to spy with our naked eye. The island sun winking as it sets daring us to never forget this very moment. This very moment of 2-wheel love with trails of cookies and cream a dream come true with me and you and you and me together as we grow stronger in self and each another.

Romancing moon perched high can’t wait to swoon cocoon enticing day dreams to transform into night dreams 2-stepping to the grove of Sam Bostic…”tell me your zodiac sign?” It don’t matter love cause I’m yours and you’re mine. Together we wander the beach of life with no real destination ahead but to hold your hand counting grains of sand knowing each one is a new chance to thank God for aligning you in just the right place at just the right time for me to see you not with my eyes but with my heart.

Nothing could tear us apart not even Black Ops screaming and fighting for main stage cause backstage forehead kisses are riches to please and tease all in one moment that will last an eternity.Sugar and honey intertwined a destiny so divine.Do we dare take this chance? A five letter word blurred with an infinite number of possibilities but only one solution with today as the finale for you and me.This chance we take resonates as the heavens open and whisper with the softest of voices for all to hear... 

Shai and Alvin “your joy is complete…you are like-minded…
with one love in spirit…you are of one mind.” 


Be kind to one another and keep today’s love in your heart forever.

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN's LOVER part 3

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN"S LOVER      part 3

Now Jorgie met a new love
He begged to make her wife
First, they’d fetch her small boy
 to start a fresh new life.

So East they went to Minot
To find her cousin there
But when they came to his big house
His smile for them was spare.

The cousin was not happy
To relinquish that fine boy
He said his wife would waste away
Without her greatest joy

And Jorgie, solemn, studied them
The woman and the child  &
Wept with great compassion
Her broken heart ran wild.

Determined to do justice
Twas no one she could blame
Jorgie hugged the boy good bye
Her soul in raging flame.

She bid the woman love him
And tell him she was aunt
And with her newfound husband, John,
Departed pale and gaunt.

Now John, he was a good man
Who worshiped his new wife
They agreed to keep a secret
About her former life

And so away the years passed
Son came after son
Jorgie had a fresh life
They built a solid home.

Each month she mailed the  letters
To the ‘cousin’ in the west
She parceled up the photos 
true siblings in their best

But Sadness haunted Jorgie’s eyes
She tried to hide it well
But her  husband knew her---
 She had him in her spell.

So sad she was and so forlorn
He needed to confide
To someone who could help him
to cheer his cherished bride.

And so he told his sister
His wife had longed to see
From her past her loved ones---
Her own sweet family.

So sister Lena planned a scheme—
For Jorgie wild and free
the gift would be a great surprise
And John he did agree.

They would take the children
Aboard the westbound train
Jump the train at Minot
To see the boy again.

Wait they must til autumn
For Jorgie twas the best
In May would be a newborn babe
Nuzzling at her breast

Then hit the plague of ‘17
Entire towns were dead—
And  in their midst was Jorgie--
With her newborn-- cold, in bed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note:  Jorgie : (pronounced Yor’ gee) was a nickname
Her name:  Sena Jorgine Larsen
My father’s mother. The baby named Clara.  My was nearly 4 when they died. His father, John Anderson—Jorgie’s husband , never remarried.  He lived to be in his 70’s. His sister, my great aunt, Lena Anderson Hildebrandt, told me this story in 1971.


PS  THERE IS ANOTHER PART TO THIS IF ANYONE WANTS TO READ IT LET ME KNOW. I DON'T WANT TO BORE ANYONE TO DEATH!  vat

The Ballad of Truman Brown

Near an Arkansas town lives a man, Truman Brown
in the steep Ozark hills we call home.
Lack of yield from the earth takes its toll on his psyche
and he dreams of the freedom to roam.

His kids work by his side with their mom, a sweet soul.
None suspect devil traits from his bent.
Though his anger inside swells each day like the tide,
he displays not a clue, seems content.

But his heart harbors wrath as he plows rocky land,
and parlays to destroy spirit's peace.
In the dark of his mind reason leaves, hate evolves
for the one he needs most, seeks release.

He quick-steps close behind his wife's chair and pretends
as he bends for a kiss from her lips.
He withdraws wicked blade, slits her throat ear to ear
and her blood streams below, scatters drips. 

In her panic and fear, she jumps up, tries to flee
but soon wanes, buckles down on the lawn. 
Children scream, race about, overwhelmed by the threat
and retreat behind doors, deadbolts drawn.

But her stout eldest son runs outside to her form,
cradles her in his arms as she dies.
Siblings hide from the blade daddy holds at his side;
he stands mute and stares out through dead eyes.

Dalton turns upside down in the blink of an eye
with the horror of murder so vile,
and the news people race to report sad details
as police chase him down by the mile.

On his mad day in court, all the stores close their doors
o'er the deed of this man, Truman Brown,
while the judge has him bound and declares him insane
but the tale still goes 'round Dalton town.

~COAT OF ARMS~

COAT OF ARMS


Last night I couldn't sleep,for thinking only you...
As I wrapped in warm embrace,your spirit tinted blue
To oust away thine pangs,in hopes to see thee smile...
I'll yoke ye 'pon my shoulders,to carry through this mile

To trade your tears of sorrow,and see them shed in joy...
I'd jest for thine amusement,and be your favorite toy
For thine malady been expelled,I'd invoke it banished 'way...
Taking it 'pon mine self,so you've strength to seize th' day

Though I'm not an king,nor prince 'pon ivory steed...
Th' possessions I've procured here,are thine if felt th' need
I'll sweep thee off thy feet,if not familiar with th' waltz...
To breathe ye 'cross th' ballroom,as an feather floating 'loft

Mark mine words I state here,and hold me to their true...
I'll prove I 'steem thee precious,as unfeigned I surely do
Just promise me one thing,that next time when your down...
You'll wear these words as armor,'til I mend thy broken crown

Before we knew the one we know

Before we knew the one we know….   By: Steve Hudson

Once we were attracted to each other
Before we even knew each other,
Passion flowed through our bodies
Ready to ignite at the faintest glow,

Now we know each other
Time and circumstance has lulled our affections
Passion is reduced to a re-action that is never an action
The gravity of our reality takes form on aged bodies

The glow that once lightened up the fires in our room
Now frightens the idea of romance between the frigid bride and groom
Wouldn’t lovemaking be breathtaking if only we could see?
The one we knew, before we know, making that our reality.

Anwnn

Coming from the misty lake Lough Leane
Came a beautiful maiden of the name of Niamh
Upon a mare, for she is not from the world of man
A seraphic princess from Anwnn
Upon the shores she claimed around his kin
"I have came for Oisin son of Finn"
"Maiden you come to me so alluringly 
I am he, if we marry for all eternity!"

And so he rode upon her horse to the secrets of Anwnn
For he and she, they'd be happy for all eternity 

Come with me to Anwnn
I am she, your queen Niamh
I have come for you Oisin, son of Finn
Don't leave me or you'll see 
The age of man
The age of man
The age of man

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN's LOVER part 2

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN’S LOVER
(Part 2 of 3)

Now Jorgie was a fierce one
Widowed   ‘fore she wed
The object of her passion
A Sea man lost and dead

Jorgie had a small lad
Swaddled piece of sun
And her lovers parents
Coveted this tiny life begun

They didn’t care that he was born
Before the two were wed
They claimed that he was theirs now
A whaling lad- True bred.

The parents of the lover
    had an only child
On his death they lost their hope
Twas like a dream defiled.

Jorgie begged her father
"Keep us out of sight!"
But her father made a traitors deal--
Oft Gold dissolves what’s right.
 
She quickly packed her bag
And off the two did fly
She sold gold jewelry and fine clothes
And kissed her land good bye

Upon a third class ship
She bought a third class bed
The sickness hit her in a storm
She puked until she bled…

Spring Winds they blew black fierce, 
the poor men all were cursed
The scurvy struck them all
There was no last or first

The ship was tossed --the wind blew bad
A wretched ugly sight
Despite the stink ,despite her fear
She battled with her fright.

Didn’t know the language
Didn’t know the style
But Jorgie was determined
To prosper with her child

When she reached the New World
She found cross country trains
And as she crossed the mighty land
She wracked her weary brain.

To organize a new life
And work the whole day long
She came up with a daring plan
She hoped she wasn’t wrong.

She jumped the train at Minot
She had a cousin there
She’d pay his wife to watch the babe
‘til she could raise him fair.

The cousin’s wife had lost her babes
She welcomed the small joy
Jorgie smiled and kissed him tho
Her heart ached for the boy.

She ventured West to logging camps
Set up her fire and pans
Cooked for Nordic loggers
The boldest of bold men.

 ========to be continued (too long for the site...sorry...)
 

Note:  Jorgie : (pronounced Yor’ gee) was a nickname
Her name:  Sena Jorgine Larsen

Here's to John and Carla

Here’s to John and Carla

Here’s the story of John Sherman
He was born there, in New Jersey
In the year of forty two
A wild, wild man was he
Con man, thief and activist
He was chased by the FBI
He was on their top ten list
One day they caught this guy.

They placed him, when they caught him
In a high security jail
They considered him to be
A very dangerous male
He escaped their prison, twice did he
When they caught up with him
They kept him jailed for eighteen years
And made his life so grim.

One day the Buddhists came to visit
And then this man was hooked
His manner changed he grew real calm
As at himself he looked
He delved down to his deepest depths
And experienced a thing
That gave him peace, and harmony
And made his whole world sing.

Just like everything in life
His peace it did not last
His mind went kind of crazy then
And his misery was vast
And so he turned to Ramana
A saint from India
As he asked the question ‘Am I here’?
Something within did stir.

His world became a heaven then
He’d learned the truth at last
He conquered all his fear of life
And the sweetness it was vast
When they let him out of Jail
He married his sweet wife
And he and Carla ran a site
To help folk through their strife.

They run a site called ‘Just one look’
Where they teach many folk
How to rid their lives of fear
And though he’s always broke
He and his wife do carry on
Trying to help folk, in their plight
As they too look within their depths
And find themselves that light

They have worked with many folk
And lot do claim success
As they ask the question ‘Am I here’
And many can attest
That they now live all free of fear 
And as his work goes on
So many will agree with them
When all their fears are gone.

I speak from my own story
When I tell this thing to you
If you do suffer misery
Then here’s the thing to do
Get in touch with John, and Carla
And let them take you to
A space where fear does not exist
It works I’m telling you.

Happy anniversary.

On this date,we both celebrate!
when our paths came together!
I met my mate over broth filled plate!
then felt daft!when the soup trickled over!
we both broke out in laughter!
as you tidied up my chin!
Will you be my pal forever?
Master and mistress in everything?

REAL MEN DON'T CHEAT ON THEIR WOMEN

God simply made man and woman
to be together for the rest of their lives...
it's a blessing this heedless world
has not fully known;
and it's so rare nowdays
to see two people in love,
and promise each other to be faithful!
Is that all so impossible?

Real men don't cheat on their women,
real men give their whole hearts full of gold
to those who really love them;
I've come to know a good man
who did just that for his woman,
and he still loves her although she's old!

Unfaithful men, would you rather have
an unhappy home or feel a joy
as sublime as the sunrise in glory?
Untrustworthy men, give up what you crave;
you can be the strongest man on earth,
and still can't stop the tears gathered inside!

Real men don't cheat on their women,
real men adore and cherish them 'till they're gone;
to be beside them and share a lovely dream,   
to console and encourage them when they're weak!

So Little Time

If I had known how much I would
Have missed her  when she left,
I would have thought of deaths embrace
As robbery or theft.

If I had known how much I would 
Have missed her when she died,
I would have prayed dear Jesus please
Take me, but I just cried.

WHY DID SHE HAVE TO LEAVE ME!
WHY DID SHE HAVE TO GO!
WHY DID SHE HAVE TO DIE MY LORD!
WHY I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW!

She died so very suddenly
We did not have much time,
Though from the very day we met 
I knew she would be mine.

I loved her yes with all my heart
I prayed for her in life,
I prayed each day she would be blessed
I prayed she'd be my wife.

So lovely,tender,pure and free
I treasured all her love
She stored up for only me
This lady, was my dove.

Now I am left to wonder God.
Now I am left to pine.
Why did she die first Lord
Now when will come my time.

For fifty years in marriage 
Our hearts did intertwine.
She now has left to meet you God.
So very little time.

The Widower

Brittle bones crackle through the hall,
as I slowly trudge to an empty bed.
Outside my window dies a barren Fall,
and what survives but my Winter dread?

Slipping into the bitter-chilled covers?
shrinking beneath ‘til I’m cloaked blind.?
Despising the demons who steal our lovers?
like feckless butchers of the conscious mind.??

Death stares me in my jealous eyes,
withholds from me his seductive knife.
Does he not hear my bitter cries?
Why plague me with abandoned life??

Sleep Tight

Sleep Tight

Shuffle now accordingly off to bed you go, 
you asked so long ago to change the cards 
I dealt you; but God responded with stagger in the void…this was all foretold,
This was all a scheming pattern new; a dream was
All you had…like concrete hard untrue; crack it with the
Sky, hold it in your trembling sweaty hands, 
this timing now is due, 
Brother, that is what
I call you, all equal parts
Desire and sweat and sinew, 
for all is young but old this way: You stepped from a car, a
child – the stars danced
In disarray, yet the space 
set so finely between those facets
Held every dream in place; 
such beauty darts a flush red 
scheme tonight across your face;
what bounty held between the brightness in your eyes?
Shuffle now, no bother for the mourning;
Ruthless is the Devil, but clueless are 
his keepers here among us; they are clever
present, they are all in a heap
Beneath your bed – Shhhh! 
Sleep tight oh Brother, sleep tight.

Henry the Eighth King of England

Henry the Eighth,
A tempestuous Tudor Prince,
Six marriages,
All doomed to toss in the sea of fate.

The fair Spanish princess was first,
Wedded to the King of England,
She died alone and rejected, 
Shut out of the warmth of his heart.

The temptress cometh,
A dark English maiden,
Seductively beautiful,
Her hold cannot last,
The tide swelled against her,
No male heir for England,
A silver sword stole her life.

Beautiful, far and modest,
Another English maid,
Destined to be the third Queen of England,
Succeeded where others couldn't
A son was born,
A mother and Queen fell,
Her shadow lingers in the palace still.

Fourth in line a German princess,
A Flander’s Mare the King pronounced,
Displeasing to his eye,
A marriage crumbles,
She lives to see another day.

A mischievous sprite,
Captures the eye of a King,
A voracious flirt,
She lost her head,
A fateful lesson learned and,
Paid for with her life.

Last in line,
A sweet and gentle woman,
She nursed him to the end.
His last breath was drawn,
A life snuffed out.

She lives to see,
His children inherit
A turbulent throne.
First the precious Prince Edward,
Then Bloody Mary,
Last in line- the Virgin Queen- Elizabeth.

Three loads of clothes Some towels to fold A sink full of dishes A mind full of wishes A bathroom to sanitize A job I most despise Floors to mop When does it stop? And when I am through There is cooking to do Cleaning once more Then off to the store Just when I think, my job is done I forget, I have errands to run When does it end? Then I remember That tomorrow I get to do it all over again.

"Michelle & Mookey"

Mookey and Michelle were lovers                           
Oh, how they could love                              
they were faithful until something went wrong                                                             
he loved her, but something is wrong                        

Michelle Is a good wife to him                               
that’s what he said                                                    
spent 50 dollars to by her man a picture                          
he loved her, but something is wrong	           

Michelle called his cousin                               
Just to see if he was there                                             .
said: brother-in-law,Has my baby been here?                                           
he loved her, but something is wrong

he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle went down to the bar                                     
Didn’t go to drink                                                         
underneath her shirt she carried a nine-milli gun                                           
he loved her, but something is wrong                           

Michelle looked over the car to see if he was there                                                    
there was Mookey on the stool holding Tiffany’s hand                                                 
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle stooped down beside the car   
Pop ,pop ,pop ,pop four shot let out
Right through the door
he loved her, but something is wrong

The first two hit Mookey
She heard him yell out in pain
The third one hit Tiffany in the leg
There were two new faces in hell
he loved her, but something is wrong
                               
“Oh, it hurt, he yell
His left side was bleeding 
Her left leg bleeding
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle looked out the jailhouse
To see the beautiful life.
She could see the birds flying, she could hear them sing
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle said to the sheriff, “What is my punishment? ”
Sheriff said, “Michelle,It’s the electric chair for you”
he loved her, but something is wrong

This story is crazy but true,that shows that it is true
When people say men ain’t no good
he loved her, but something is wrong

Dedicated to you

You know I love you so much, so much so that it aches,
Yet I love you so, I just give what it takes,
Sometimes I do wild things, just to play rebel to the wife,
Yet deep down I know, it is you, who lights up my life.
Just To stay by me, I know you gave given up more than I can ever give,
I cannot forget that for a day, a moment, not a single second that I live,
You are my world, my dreams, my strength, my hopes, my gain,
You are my peace, my song, my antidote to pain,
You are the music, in my every breath the sweet sound,
You are the fundamental force that makes my little world go round,
This I cannot finish writing, yet I am forced to send,
For  this is the story of my love for you, and it will Never end…
Love you , more..
Each day..
Each second..
Yesterday..
Today..
Now..
Tomorrow..

My New Life

Alone in this world. In this big wild place. Dreams of peace and love are what I seem to always to chase. Treading up this climb at a nice, steady pace. Searching high and low. Just to see your face. 

One-by-one, seeking my perfect girl. Failed attempt once again. Deeply craving that perfect pearl. 

A team of two, undivided in half. Uplifting feelings, she always wants to hear you laugh.

A true girl likes helping out any way she can. You love her too and she loves her man. 

This girl of the future, she is kind and nice. Not a moocher. Made of sweets and spice.

Once this person is in my life, I will try to ask her to be my wife.

With her, life becomes more amusing. Along that, the game becomes much less confusing.

Then on one clear, cool morning night, you walked beside me. That town seems to gives you an awful fright. 

Us just talking and walking, long passed eleven. There beside me, she was a gift from haven. 

So nice and so kind. This one was very hard to find. A sweet young girl with a brilliant mind. Even past her beauty, in every way she shined. 

At last! Now, I feel complete. The search is finally over. No longer must I compete.

Now Hun, it will all be good. Defend and help each other. The way true lovers should.

Some day, like I said before. “We both should get married. By our spot on shore.” The power of our love and our commitment can never be buried. Many more blessings of ours are to be carried. 

I'm glad, I'm here to be. Finally dear, you found me. 

Standing alone in the night frost air, 
You saw me, as I looked quite lost there.

Sad and confused. But knew, mostly hurt and used. 

Hart was tired from the last girl's end. But this one's different. She has a kind warm hart.  She's the perfect friend.

My life. It's gotten way better. Like warm and cozy, in a big fluffy sweater.

I'm blessed that you chose me. In this big wild world Hun, it's only you I see.

He'll be back 'round Sundown

There he goes again, takin’ off on that stud
I know he’ll come back all covered in mud.
It kills me, seein’ him leave
I’m afraid he’ll get hurt even though I know he’s not naïve.
He tells me he thinks about me while sittin’ ‘round the fire eatin’ beans
So then why does he still head out there by all means?
Herdin’ those cattle and movin’ them from town to town
Brings home the bacon, but always seems to get me down.
Seein’ my Cowboy leave breaks my heart
But when he arrives home I’m ‘specially happy we are no longer apart.
I hear his boots tiredly walkin’ up to the door
And just that alone makes me giddy galore.
I know it sounds absolutely silly
But holdin’ those rough chapped hands sure makes me happy.
When he smiles at me his nose crinkles
And I see that the long tough days have given him wrinkles.
It’s crazy how much he has changed
But I know he is still the amazin’ man I engaged.

One Last Glance--- SONG 1

Don’t let yourself be scared,
	be confident.
Don’t hold your soul back,
	just let it take flight.
Standing alone in an empty room
	admiring art from pictures of me and you.

One glance back at the life you knew before,
One last tear that wasn’t meant to fall,
One last embrace to know you were real,
One last breath to make sure you were okay;
One glance back.

Sheltered in your arms,
	a curtain of love binds me.
Hunger in your kiss,
	to know that you need me.
But I’m standing alone in a crowded
room filled with people admiring pictures
	of me and you.

One glance back at the life you knew before,
One last tear that wasn’t meant to fall,
One last embrace to know you were safe,
One last breath to make sure you 
were awake;
One glance back.

You left me on my own
worried sick about you, holding onto all
that was left of you. The
memory of you walking away,
with my silent prayer
hoping you would be okay. . .

One glance back. . .

		One last tear. . .

	One last embrace. . .

			One last breath. . .

One glance back at the life you had before,
One last tear that was meant to fall,
One last embrace to hold me through the 
night,
One last breath just to see the
mornin’ light.
One last glance.

One last glance. . .
		One last tear. . .

			One last embrace that I hold dear. . .

	One last breath that saves a life. . .



One last glance good-bye. . .

				Good-bye. . .

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

Walking down the aisle to meet my groom, didn't realize it was the day of my doom! 

Oh! What can I say. Blinded on My wedding Day.

Love Lost

Drawn together, seemingly predestined, 
freewill nothing but illusion, 
a love so infinitely rare - 
a random wave of emotion 
to be surfed to its destination? 
No, a power sublime, 
surpassing that force binding the universe.

Were there ever more, or more intense
emotions rushing at once,
to weigh and buoy a heart? 
Your touch a great clarifier of thought and feeling. 
Restraint overcome, 
replaced by the capacity to love 
that stems from being loved.

Life flashing before me, its
realization of misshapen thought, 
misspent years changing everything; 
now understanding the true worth, 
this offer of life unencumbered. 

Every day a gift, every moment to savor, 
a license to enjoy life on unfamiliar turf, 
nothing more than fearless- 
when that felt at night, 
when we are all most alone, 
a fear so great to be called mortal terror, 
made powerless by your touch.

Studying your face feature by feature, 
could I ever forget your eyes, 
the luster of your hair,
the shape of your mouth, 
the sheen on your lips. 
This sum of love and beauty 
encompassing a dream; 
our lives before us.

Thoughts held in mind 
reproduced in their kind, 
love growing, ever expanding; 
your inherent goodness found me in me, 
showing what I might be 
taught the value of family, 
and roots.

In simplest terms my life began that day 
though I'd lived decades without. 
To see those eyelids flutter, 
to watch and pray through the night 
that I could fulfill my role as husband, 
to be your lifelong companion, 
friend, advocate, lover, protector- 
that you would understand cherish- 
and be a wife satisfied.

How long since we last kissed, 
but a moment ago, or an eternity? 
Oh, the sense of ineffable rest, 
joy and completeness when in your arms; 
a lover won, a wife to behold.

The commonplace, 
the everyday, behind its familiar facade 
being most likely to hold surprise, 
the memories to treasure; 
rejecting an existence 
that substitutes flash for beauty, 
sensation for love- 
as long as there is life there is hope
that beauty, that love lost 
can be rediscovered, 
what was reviled 
can be redeemed.

love

I arise in love with love it grows its fruit out of my wings love makes my heart sing, romance. love makes me selfless in a state of agape. love keeps me thinking in isolation, hoping in dejection. love makes me express on bed of roses entangled an intertwind in bliss woven passions that rejects lust, yet invites love. the necter is sweet as pleasures trancend and ravish my trinity oh love is faithfull, willing and definately able. oh definately able! Love existed before Cain killed Abel It will bring joy to it's possessors Captivating it's keepers Uplifter of weepers Bringing pleasure to those who express it, who grow it live it make it.

Each Time

Each time is like the first time,
Thoughts of passion will never leave my mind,
Romantic evenings after dark,
Your gift of joy make me rock,

I am thinking of your warmth,
So kind and so clear,
A climatic sensation,
Each time we are near,

I hope it is the same for you,
Each time we are alone,
I know I've found that Rib God took,
I am ready to start a home,

Each time you hurt,
It makes me cry,
Each time we part,
I cannot say goodbye,

Each time you laugh,
You put a smile on my face,
Each time we kiss,
You make my heart race,

Then we make love again and again,
You are my lover,
And my very best friend,

I am your man and you are my rib,
For God formed you from me,
To demonstrate how to give,

When we are together,
I know you are mine,
Each time is special and one of a kind,
Each time...

My unchained emotion, that goes on forever unchained, unlimtied and untamed. You cant cage this animal nor tame this lion in me called love, nor arrest it's cousin, passion or its uncle, emotions. I adorn her earth with kisses ravish the garden called her trinity, each sound turns the grass greener. earth shattering pulsations on this bed love founded on a bed of fresh roses She is a blank canvas I am the artist Love is the perfect portrait that we make. I search for a moment that lasts forever.... That lasts forever. amen

Long-Suffering and Kind

Come with me and let us reason together
Let's listen to each other as a woman and a man
We are two joined together to love one another
But there's just one thing we need to understand
Even though I receive you just as you are
And even though you receive me just as I am
We must learn to change together to make things better
Without demanding our own way to be in command

Be long-suffering and kind 
It's going to take some time for change
And suffering wrong some times
We may endure some grief and pain
But then all in due time
We'll see like hearts and like-minds will be gained
So be long-suffering and kind
Cause its going to take some time for change  (Chorus)

Its not that I want you to be just like me
it's not that you desire me to be just like you
Yet we must change to grow and we must grow as one
No longer two on our own, we've got real love to prove
In considering each other before ourselves
We will sacrifice more often than what we plan
In becoming what the other needs we'll be fulfilled
For every grief is erased because we've learned and understand

That if I concentrate on you and if you concentrate on me
We won't push ourselves forward, be self-seeking or rude
For I'm concerned with your pleasure 
And you're concerned with pleasing me
Because you really care for me and I really love you.

(Chorus)

Cordelia

Across the ocean and clear blue sky
For reason, what purpose I kept wondering why?
Dear Lord thou knowest is this the right choice
Comforted and strengthed by the still small voice

I saw her that day my heart did pound
God's will in the Midwest at last I had found
The maker more perfect than a human scout
His ways and purpose past finding out

Dear love in sweet tones I call out to thee
In trembling I wonder will she go with me?
Together to dwell in sweet harmony
Held fast by God's hands in holy matrimony

I Can't Explain Part 2

...I can't explain the secure feeling when you hold me and sleep I can promise that I love you ~ I can promise I won't creep I can't explain why you take over my heart You had me in the beginning ~ at the very start I can't show you that I love you, as much as I do I can promise you one thing though, what I speak is true I can't explain the amazement ~ when you catch me in a stare I can't explain to you how much it means just to know you care I don't know why I know know my babies will be yours I can't thank you enough, to fix my heart when it was torn I can't explain to you how much you mean Sometimes I take a step back and wonder, "am I in a dream?" To hold you close to me at night please know I want you to teach me to love you even more ~ please show I want to spend the rest of my life with you Please believe me when I say this, for it is 100% true I miss you even when your down a hall I hear random whistles and I look for your call For my father to love you, as he says he does It means so, so, much to me ~ it always was I can't explain the impact you have on my big heart Your everlasting love pierced through my world like a dart The love poison you poisoned me with will show But for now all I can say is that I love you ~ just so you know

I Can't Explain Part 1

Why the warmth in your skin Brightens my world from dim I do not know why I do not know why for only you I'd die I can't explain the kisses from your lips I definitely can identify your familiar grasp around my hips I can't explain why you melt my heart I can't explain to you why it hurts when we're apart I can explain your sight and your seducing baby blue eyes I can't explain why you make me feel safe when you tower over me in size I can truly tell you why you qualify for my love But I can't explain to you why you were sent just for me from above I can feel your arms tight around me I can't explain why for you I trust to help me see I can't explain the butterflies fluttering deep inside And I can't explain why I am the one who can break your pride I can explain the feeling when you touch me I can't explain why only for you I choose to see I can't explain the deep palpitations inside every beat I can't explain why just for you, I chose to reserve a seat I can't explain the short breaths when I see your face But I can pinpoint exactly your lips and the sweet taste I can't explain why you want to be a dad But I also can't explain the random reasons why I get mad I can definitely explain to you the bleeding in my soul But I can't explain to you why my life has taken a toll I can't explain in words why I love you so much All I can say is, "I love you," and such and such I can't explain with all the money in the world why I love you so But here's a bold, "I LOVE YOU," on paper ~ so you know I can't explain to you how somehow I get lost in your eyes But I also can't explain why God randomly granted me this prize I can tell you that I love you ~ I can tell you that I care I can also tell you I need you ~ and I promise I'll be there...

Honie.


I have realized now more than ever what love is.
Love is all about knowing you,
It could be about sharing a thought with you,
Or hearing the sound of your voice

I saw love that day 
When you took my hands and looked into my eyes,
I heard love 
When you whispered to my ears how you felt about me

I have felt love just once,
That time you held me close to yourself
With the sound of our hearts complementing one another,
And our limbs went numb

Thank you for teaching me what love is;
Love’s all about spending life with you

Forever and Ever (I'll Always Love You)

My life began the day we met
The world, it looked brand new.
Colors brighter, music sweeter
And all because of you.
You took a life of sadness
And you made it oh so sweet
But now you're gone and yet.......

I love you more with each passing day
Though God saw fit to take you away.
When I think of our love, it still seems brand new
Forever and ever, I'll always love you.



 I still feel you close by my side.
The pain's so deep, it cuts like a knife
When you went away, my heart broke into little pieces.
But I'll put those pieces back together 
Because I know some day, we'll be together again.
But until then...............

I'll love you more with each passing day
Though God saw fit to take you away.
When I think of our love, it still seems brand new
Forever and ever, I'll always love you.

Oh, when I think of our love
It still seems brand new
Forever and ever, I'll always love you.

Majesty

Majesty

Who is the image of God?
Is it man?
Is it me?
Perhaps, that is the case.
That this race is to be ruled by the masculine, phallic paradigm,
Perhaps the rhyme and reason of the universe is the work of one gender,
But I know of a woman,
Who challenges such notions,
To become, To be, the gentle fabric of my being,
That was her role for a time,
But am I to define her?
I think not,
For she is a raging fire of possibility,
Her abilities out sway all of my greatest potential,
And as she discovers her power,
I marvel,
For only she could convince me,
That above me, my God cannot be defined by the androcentric bias which often 
time maligns my rhymes,
That above me sits a woman as well as a man,
Who beckons to my fate and calls me to her land,
For Sophia saw in me, what this world would not notice,
And told me I could make it, when all would count me lost,
Machel I tell you, she saved me from hell,
And yet that is not her destiny,
She is Isis rising,
She is Michael descended in female form,
To be loyal to the end,
That was her mantra,
And she stood by and endured me,
Ascerbic tongue and all,
As I fall as I rise, she believes I’ll reach the sky,
But even that is not her definition,
She is a phrase too sacred to utter,
She is a word, like Maudib, too powerful to be spoken in fancy,
I tell you to be worthy of her,
To aspire to believe that I was worthy of her,
Has been my greatest challenge and joy,
To become would she knew I could be,
Has been torment and elation,
It has been a journey of introspection and transformation,
Which almost killed me,
And still I struggle,
To submit to her ascension,
To put aside my selfish glory,
That her story may unfold,
And the world may see the wonder of a brilliance untold,
To be a husband to my Sophia,
And a father to the blood stained Diamonds she bears,
This is the greatest journey,
This is the ultimate victory,
And though I fail time and time again,
Because she knows I’ll make it,
Because she believes that I can become what she sees within me,
I will rise to the majesty of her countenance,
And know manhood.

struck by lightning

You were like lightning
That hit me while driving
You spilled all over my senses

To say I was electrified
Is an understatement

Because now i sit and write
And
Silently wonder about 
My time with you
Alone

Where do I go from here
After the occurance
Of you
is gone

Do I pull up my baggy pants and
Pretend
...

Fake out my own mind
That nothing occured
Thereby waiting for sleep
To make soft the blow

So that
The shape and the memory
Of your face
Becomes some distorted
Warp in the memory of my dreams

When I said too much 
And you gave a chuckle

As if to say good-bye

And we hit the reset button
For an resplendant reprise

Freddy The Fly Takes a Bride

Freddy the Fly,
Now back from the moon,
Noticed on his calendar,
That it was now June...

The wedding month,
thought our dear Freddy,
But a fly has a short life,
So then, before I'm dead,
I gotta' find a fly-wife!!

So Freddy flew
all abouts the world
Searching for,
the perfect fly-girl

Finally he was rewarded,
When Nicole Fly he did meet,
He got so excited,
He stepped on her fly-feet

But the attraction seemed mutual,
Like a fly to horse manure,
But when they did converse,
They both were very sure,

Freddy proposed his 
fly matrimonial hope,
Nicole said yes, let's
go elope....

But a wise Freddy the fly,
Did look her in the eye,
He knew she'd someday
regret,
Such a simple way to beget,

So he told her of his plan,
For the biggest fly-wedding
in all the land,

The solemn day came real quick,
A Sunday wedding, they did pick
And as it did unfold,
This story I was told,
He'd waited for her hand to hold,
To place on her fly-hand the ring gold,

Dressed in his little fly-tux,
Fly guests tried to hold their yucks,
And Nicole, in her fly gown,
Flew about, then up, then down,

To land on the fly-alter,
Not for a fly minute did she falter,
Said, "Yes, Fly Priest, I do!!...
And if's all the same to you.....
Would you get off my fly wedding cake,
It took so long for the fly-baker to make"

And Freddy's anxious to leave at once,
On a fly honeymoon, for sure,
But, alas, I almost forgot-
No "moon" in the honeymoon- no more!

For Freddy had eatten the romantic moon,
It tasted like sh_t, and it did ruin,
The moonlight for kissing was there no more,
So to fly-sleep they went,
and soon began to fly-snore.....

Now a Freddy Fly's snore is an event to behold,
At least as a fly-story, we've been told
Nicole , she couldn't sleep
As Freddy fly-snored deep,
She flew off and let the fly groom,
Wake up next fly-day to fly-gloom!

Our Silver Wedding Anniversary

Twenty five years ago today,
A young man woke on his wedding day.
As he lay there he thought of the good times to come,
Then a knock on his door, cup of tea from his mum.
Well son she said, the day has arrived,
Very soon you shall have your wife by your side.
He thought for a while at the words she just said,
Your wife by your side, went round in his head.
A smile then appeared across his face,
You’re right mum he said, I really can’t wait.
When at the church the nerves they took hold,
The best man gave a reassuring word.
The organ music changed its tune; the vicar gave a nod,
A couple that were so in love made vows in front of god.
That was twenty five years ago to this very day,
The young man that was me, 
The beautiful vision that stood by my side,
Wearing white old borrowed and blue.
Is the beautiful vision that is by my side still,
The one and only you!



For Marie with all my love, Mark

Lazy Hound Dog Blues

The alarm goes off, I open my eyes to face the day 
I roll back over to sleep it away 
The wife begins to preach to me 
No work, unemployed, I am free 
I go to the unemployment office and talk to the man 
He looks at my state and says he will do what he can 
The man asks me which of the three jobs I choose 
I don't want a job, I guess I've got those Lazy Hound Dog Blues 
I go outside, sit at the bench and wait for the bus 
I've got nowhere to be, I ain't in no rush 
It's getting to be late in the afternoon 
Getting hungry and will be home soon 
My wife left me a note saying were through 
At the moment I don't care, it's the curse of the lazy hound dog blues 
I tell myself tomorrow I will look for a job 
Gotta clean myself up, no one will hire a slob 
The alarm goes off I hit the snooze 
Not today, I am nagged by those lazy hound dog blues 
My wife calls, says she wants to work things out 
I try to explain, she begins to shout 
She won't listen what's the use 
I tell there is a cure for the flu 
But how do you shake the lazy hound dog blues

Savior

Standing on the shores of life
Waves of dreams crashing down over me
Engulfing all that I am…
A salty taste fills my mouth
I gasp for air, 
Suddenly my lungs fill with mixed emotions 
My breath escapes me 
As did the joy I once felt 
Cold and wet I stand alone,
Watching and waiting for you
I stand alone,
Suddenly my pain is at ease
With the sound of your voice 
Thank you for saving me…

Divorce is not Final

The pain is back again, that no pills or bottle can cure...
I tried to set things straight, the TRUTH will come out sure.
They must understand, I did NOT leave, I was forced from my bed...
Against my will, with a gun to my head.
I was just ONE man against many, who wanted what I had...
My kids must understand, I am STILL their DAD !
I am a man who tried to hold my ground...
but there were four little kids around.
I was told to leave or no one would find my body again.
Hurt and kicked from town to town, I didn't have my friends.
They sold and stole it all, after they tore my family down...
I do not like being homeless and sleeping on the ground !
Fore no job can be found, when your name is trodden down...
so I do what I can and float around.
Disabled and riches GONE, it's not fair...
It was all MINE, kids, homes and cars, the judge don't care !
I had worked and paid for it all...
Divorce is a bunch of blood suckers taking it all !
The innocent take the horrible fall...
Dam you satan and the woman who STOLE it all !
But GOD is strong and this is not over yet...
They sealed their doom, you bet.
She does not let me see my kids...
so GOD won't let her live.
Eternity is a very long time...
to be standing in burning slime !!!

Synching up

Did you ever want to let go
and just be a memory?
Or just so jaded from the world that
you wish you couldn't see?
Anger and hatred ruled over me
easily
Until you came along and saved
me.

I was so conflicted about what was right
and wrong
Was so sick and tired of being swept away
in the darkest of storms.
Your hand it shined as the rain bounced off
the skin
and as our lips embraced a new life
for us was about to begin.

All the pain and misery
Take it all away from me
As i lay down to sleep
our eyes synch together as
do our hearts beat.

Before you everything
felt so blue, felt used
like everything i ever wanted
fell right through.
Then you appeared
out of no where
letting me know that it's you who cared
understanding, never demanding
Showing me in the hardest of times
there's really nothing to fear.

All the pain and misery
Take it all away from me
As i lay down to sleep
our eyes synch together as
do our hearts beat.

Great Big And Little Biddy (A Love Story)

There was a little boy
In a great big house
With a great big yard
On a tree lined street.

The little boy was happy
He had food, clothes, toys, and treats
Yeah, you could say his life was pretty sweet.

But as he got older
He began to wonder
'When will I find true love'?

But little did he know
That a little biddy girl
In a little biddy house
With a little biddy yard
On a street with no trees
Yearned for her own true love.

And then one day
The little biddy girl
Saw the little boy from the great big house.

They married and formed a love so sweet
That they bought a little biddy house
With a great big yard
On a mountain full of trees.

Where Do We Go From Here?

We don't mesh
Since we've been one flesh
We're never on good terms for long
As a matter of fact
One misheard word or act
Makes us conclude everything's wrong

And we don't click
Like the stones and sticks
That we've gathered from far and near
They've all been used
Now that we're battered and bruised
Where do we go from here...?

Why do we settle down
To settle for less or save face
By not waiting for true happiness?
Why do we put on a show
And act funny with each other,
Yet neither of us is laughing yet?

And why do we get confident
Seeing our strength and beauty,
Finally, from the words of a stranger?
And why do we stay together
While pushing ourselves apart?
Without mutual love we're in danger.

(Excerpts from the song Where Do We Go From Here?)

We Stand Together

Who would have thought
We'd be standing here today
This road was hard fought
We made it anyway

Now we stand before God
And we start our new life
As we battle the odds
I'm glad to become your wife

I vow to love you
You vow to love me
To honor and cherish
And to love eternally

As man and woman 
We stand separate
As husband and wife
We stand together

Chopper

Way back then, when my years were gold.
A chopper I was, I'd been told.
I would leave one morning, and get back that night.
To my wife this caused, a terrible fright.
One trip I took a nasty fall.
time after that, I broke my jaw.
After a while, we decided I should quit.
I was sick and tired, of all this $hit.
I know I needed, to go back to work.
But no one would hire, those stupid jerks.
A month later, my wife died.
I broke down, and cried and cried.
So I went to my boss, and begged for my job.
"Ok," he said, and I went to chop logs.
I was by myself, chopping a pine.
When the tree fell, on a leg of mine.
It hurt like hell, when it hit my leg.
When I woke up, I wished I was dead.
I looked around, for some form of escape.
But my axe had fallen, into the lake.
I checked my pockets, and found nothing.
Except for a spoon, and some other something.
By looking around, I knew what to do.
I gripped the spoon tightly, and bit on my shoe.
And then I started, to hack away.
Hacking and slashing, until night turned to day.
I don't remember, much after that.
I know I died, from where I sat.
You see, I was always a little dumb.
But it seemed I cut off, THE WRONG DAMN ONE!

The Cowboy

                 

Her heart was breaking as she stepped into the bar,
This time her cowboy had pushed her just a little too far.
The neon lights seemed to be calling as the music took it its toll,
Pour me a couple of them little shooters I feel I’m on a roll.

The music was inviting as she watched the couples dance,
Until she met this cowboy who held her in his trance.
She still had on her wedding ring as they danced across the floor,
This cowboy had ill intentions as he danced her to the door.

He said let’s go get some air as casual as that,
She said I’m sorry cowboy I just don’t like the color of your hat.
She turned to walk back in but he grabbed a hold of her,
She said you best be turning loose or else you’ll feel my angry spur.

He turned her loose right then and there this girl with golden hair,
When right behind her stood her cowboy whom she’d thought had been unfair.
He said I’ve come to take you home, and I’m sorry for what I said,
But you’re just so gosh durn pretty I git messed up in my haid.

She said you are my cowboy I’ve got my brand on you,
But you’re gonna have to loosen up on them reins when I ask you to.
He said you got yourself a deal I’ll give it all I’ve got,
No more roping or the rodeos cause honey making you happy truly means a lot.

He grabbed up his little filly and sat her in his truck,
And told her that he loved her and with him she was stuck.
They rode off into the sunset,
This story had a good ending so listen don’t you fret.

The Lost Wives

THE LOST WIVES

My wife and I were having one of them bonding days,
Where we ate lunch in a café…and of course it’s me who pays!
Then we strolled along the street to look in all the shops.
Now the bug has bit her, this window-shopping never stops.

It’s “Look at this!” Or “Look at that!” And “Isn’t that so cheap!”
Of course I’m going “Yes dear! As I follow like a sheep,
When in reality me thoughts are on being somewhere better,
So she can shop with all her might, and I can just forget her. 

Then when she mentioned ‘Target’ she must have seen me shake,
“That joint’s fifty thousand metres square”, I said “For goodness sake!”
But to addicted shopaholics, they don’t care who bears the brunt… 
“If you don’t want to shop with me then just wait out the front!”  

I waited…and I waited. I reckon that three hours is enough,
So with blood pressure rising and me language getting rough,
I began the dreaded searching up and down the hundred aisles,
And ignored the “Can I help you?” Or the shop assistant smiles.

I stormed past the ladies underwear and then the hats and dresses, 
The perfume and the footwear aisles kept adding to me stresses,
Then I met a bloke close to the lipsticks with worry on his face,
“I’ve been searching for an hour…me wife is lost in this place!”  

I replied “Well that’s coincidence! Mine’s been gone for hours now, 
I’ve searched north to south, east to west and you know somehow,
I reckon we should join our forces, because united we could strike, 
So by the way” I said to him, “What does your wife look like?”

“Well” he said, “She’s tall and tanned, her body shape’s an hour glass,
Her legs are long, hair is blonde, and she’s got a gorgeous…bottom.
Now what does your wife look like?” And without a seconds pause,
“Bugger mine!” I said to him…“Lets just go and look for yours!”

What is a wife

A wife is a woman, loving and true,
A wife is a woman, that woman is you.

A wife is so special, so take care of her,
A wife is so special, for she’s always there.

A wife will support you, in all that you do.
A wife will support you, your whole life through.

You are my wife, and I’m happy to say,
That I love you more, with each passing day.

I Love you Marie

Love

Love that dies is never alive,
no matter how much you strive.

If you desire love to survive,
then you must know no strife.

Reach out and touch Gods outstretched hand,
He'll hold it securely in His near to His heart.

Love never dies, 
it is alive and forever will be!

Jack and Clare (Part 1)

Twas the night before Christmas
And Jack wasn't there
He was out with a blonde
With long flowing hair

His wife Clare arranged for six neighbours to dine
But Jack and his gal were sipping red wine
Wifey had visions of Jack falling lame
Never suspecting he was out with some dame

The snow kept a falling
As time tick tocked on
As Clare sat a fretting
That something was wrong

Jack and his mistress
A dim witted floozie
Were snuggled together
In the motel Jacuzzi

At a quarter to nine
The front doorbell rung
But Jack's angry wife 
Had gone for her gun

She ran past her friends
Out of the door
Screaming and yelling
I'll shoot the darn whore!

Oceans Between Us

So long mistakes heart breaks these lonely times will take your place 
We walk separated sands but through these times i understand One
Look one kiss only in dreams would love feel like this.

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you 
I've loved you for so long.

I need you because space and time wont last to long i close my eyes and i'm 
With you never let you go...

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you I've 
Loved you for so long.

Can we carry  on will you be okay on your own sometimes i cant wait to
Hear you breath on the telephone just to make sure tell me again what's
Our favorite song.

( Memories) of you and me a piece of me fade away..
When i think of you i cry on command and all this sadness makes
me a better man.

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you 
I've loved you for so long. I've missed you bright my way cure my lonely day

At Bubba's We Spent the Night

We take Bubba home to drop him off 
His father and mother come out, they begin to hack and cough 
His father extends his hand out to shake mine 
My wife says don't be rude, go ahead and shake it, I do so, his hand is covered 
with mucuossy slime 
After shaking his hand, I begin to gag 
The wife with no bra, smiles and hands me a Save A Lot shopping bag 
She takes a swig from her 32 oz brew 
Then offers it to my wife Sue 
I say come on, it is your turn to show manners now 
As she takes a swallow, I watch her face, the expression looked like she was 
trying to give birth to a cow 
Bubba asks his father if we can all stay the night 
The father says fittin' us all in one bedroom will be very tight 
I tell him we will sleep in the kitchen near the back door 
He says pay no mind to critters on the floor 
I ask where is the toilet, I have to go 
He says out back, you're in luck, I just dug a fresh new hole 
I think to myself, this is not the way life should be 
A night at Bubba's I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy 
At 3 am, they are in the kitchen stepping over us getting snacks 
We are offered each a bowl of that famous soup called fatback 
Bubba yells I want my box of cupcakes 
His mom hands a pack of Reelfoot pork hot dogs and says for goodness sakes 
He devours them as if he was in a hot dog eating contest 
Bubba says, after I eat my cupcakes, that will tie me over so I can rest 
A little after 4, Bubba gets his fill 
After breakfast, we were told we can leave on our own free will 
After trying some rocky mountain oysters, it is time we leave 
The dad says we would love to come and stay with y'all on New Year's Eve 
I tell him until 2040 we have plans 
He says that's fine that will give them enough time to collect some aluminum 
cans 
We move to another state with no forwarding address 
Never again putting ourselves in that kind of mess

Forever.

As the night falls and our day ends as I look into your eyes I see it,
to hold your hand, kiss your lips,  as you touch my face I fill it,
in the cold glass of water you brought me on that hot summer day or the candle light
dinner you made for us I can taste it,
As a young boy seeing what I see in your eyes I never thought it was possible the sun
set,the sun raise,misty mountains,snow top trees in December,
even while growing up I never felt this moment,this time,this place, I never knew to look
into your eyes to see it...and I will always remember,
The first time I seen you I didn't see it,
in our first kiss I felt the earth shack but I didn't fill it,
even in your meals I never tasted it,
now I know it,
no need to look for it,
or to say I never seen it,
weather under the weather in your eyes it's there,
in a kiss good bye,hello or good-night that we share,
a quick bite,a quite lunch,or a dinner for two nothing compares,
to say it brings chills to my body even after all these years,
as I fill it deep in my soul it drowns my weary and calms my fears,
a moment with you, your smile,your laugh,in your eyes of blue just being near,
in my hand, in my heart, in my presents, in you...after every year,
your my world, your my every thing,
from eyes of blue to your wedding ring,
the love I have for you makes my heart sing,
I can't see it with out together
can't fill it with out the seasons weather,
I couldn't taste it with out you altogether 
and I couldn't say always with out forever.

Jack Daniels And Me

V-1:
Clenched fists...in a barroom of sorrow
Against the bar...thinkin' bout tomorrow
Filling my mouth...from a peanut sack
Down I went...another shot from Jack

V-2:
I picked myself up...got me to my feet
Head spinning...as I sit on this bar seat
I wiped the blood...from my left brow
For tonight...Jack really put me down

Chorus:
All alone...Jack Daniels and me
Tonight my friend...had me feeling guilty
My wife up and left...said that's your life storie
As she left us alone...Jack Daniels and me

V-3:
Woke up this morning...in a Motel of shame
Still holdin' Jack...and my head full of pain
My mind flashed back...to the night before
Watching her leave...me and Jack on the floor

V-4:
I rememberd those words...she'd say everyday
The drinkin' must stop...or I'm going away
Now the last ten years...is all shot to hell
As I cling to my friend...on this floor where I fell

Chorus:
All alone...Jack Daniels and me
Last night my friend...had me feeling guilty
My wife up and left...said that's your life storie
As she left us alone...Jack Daniels and me

Love Me for Me

{the woman}
If my charm proves deceitful,
If beauty will flee-
Will you still love me for me?
If my health becomes sickness,
If worse things you'd see-
Would you still love me for me?

(Bridge)
And I am convinced, though the future presents
Any creature that ever will be
In the heights or the depths, none can separate us~
If you will still love me for me.


Set me as a seal upon your heart
Lover of my soul, my deepest part, 
Just the way I am without one plea
I love you for you; love me for me

With the most vehement flames of fire
Waters cannot quench true love's desire
Or wash it far away into the sea
I love you for you; love me for me  (Chorus)


{the man}
If my glory of strength fades,
If fame will decrease-
Will you still love me for me?
If my talents should be lost,
If all gifts should cease-
Would you still love me for me?

(BridgeII)
But I am persuaded through all tribulations,
Though famine and peril may be,
That no hardship or nakedness shall separate us
If you will still love me for me.

(Chorus)

Solomon's Song

I have found the one
           my soul does love
           bearing gifts from above;
My darling, my fair one,
Come away, turtle dove,
After whom I run...
     I search to this end,
     To find my perfect one
And my best friend,
Majestic as the stars
          and moonbeams on lawn;
          upon the seas my beloved
Appears like the dawn,
Whom now I hold;
     I will not let go
     Of my concerned lover,
Whom alone does know,
Protects my heart,
          cares for me in whole;
          I have found the one
Who loves my soul
With vehement flames
     And coals of fire,
     By whom I am roused,
For whom is my desire
Unquenched and sealed,
          strong and unyielding,
          undrowned and guarded
With a blazing sword weilding;
My heavenly angel
     Hasted, and beheld me,
     Received me, embraced me;
Though refuge failed me,
I am strong belonging,
          and my beloved is mine;
          the shadows all vanish...
Day break does shine
As bright as the sun
     With the singing of birds;
     Unique and most lovely,
Voicing sweet words,
My flawless one is 
          my beautiful dove;
          giving gifts from above,
I am my beloved's...
I have found the one
     My soul does love.

The Blues Can Be So Mean

The blues they have me down, sometimes they can be so mean 
Yeah they have me down and sometimes they can be so mean 
Suicidal thoughts, they got me caught in between 
They can be so mean, they have me caught in between 
I try to be romantic and buy my wife a bouquet of flowers 
But with her bad news, she brings a dozen showers 
She tells me we can no longer live on dreams 
She is like the blues, leaving me caught in between 
Suicide may be the best way out 
I try to tell her what the blues are all about 
The blues they have me down, sometimes they can be so mean 
My wife tells me she's gone, we cannot live on dreams 
No forward address to contact her, cannot even say hello 
I feel for her, the stress from bills and money we owe 
I wonder which way to turn, which way I should go 
If I decide suicide, does the fire eater really collect my soul 
How much more can I truly bear 
I have no hope, I am in such deep despair 
The grass is never greener on the other side as it seems 
The blues can be so heartless, they can be so mean

your love.

what did I say?...what did I do?...
                               when was the moment or was it over time?
                               I can't find the words much less a rhyme,
how is it ...that I deserve you?

Our last kiss

Looking back at the years that have past I couldn't help but to smile,
87 years of life took alot from me,but it never took the memories I have of you,
I can still see the beautiful young blue eyed girl who waited to walk down the 
aisle,
you introduced me to true love, showed me another way, and helped me to start 
a new,
All the laughs we shared, how much we grew , a wonderful life as husband and 
wife,
as lovers, friends, enemies, companions, and parents, we argued, agreed, 
disagreed, and persist,
we said nothing will come between us, nothing will tear us apart, nothing will 
change our life,
67 years of marriage I couldn't of had it any better not even this....our last kiss,
I wish I could tell you thank you and kiss you goodbye, but I couldn't bare to see 
you cry,
I want to remember the one who made me whole, the one who stood by my side 
the one who tucked me in at night with a soft kiss
a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a person who is loved and who gives love with 
out deny,
with patents you waited, gave, listened,helped and never once you asked for 
nothing in return, you I will truly miss
I know when you awake and find that I have past sad and heart broken you will be,
I just need you to know I didn't want to leave you like this,
you made my life worth every moment I  was blessed with you in my life that I can 
see,
so up above I'll be waiting for the love of my life, and savoring our last kiss.

When the Sparks No Longer Fly

From the moment I met you
Stared into those eyes of crystal blue
You were the one I have been waiting for
My heart has braved rough waters, you are my beacon to bring it to shore
We walked and talked, sharing our life long dreams
We both worked, went to college, we valued every moment in between
Now you have become my bride, I have become your groom
Love is like a beautiful instrument, must keep it in tune
Here we come up on our tenth anniversary
Three kids, two cars, rehearsals and PTO meetings
Somewhere along the line, we forgot us, our romance gone awry
What comes next, when the sparks no longer fly
I believe we've gotten comfortable, doing the same old routine
This is not the fairy tale marriage, the vision we seen
We need to find that fuel and warm our hearts together
Let's huddle as one and brave the stormy weather
It all comes down to where is our time
In the beginning we were one with our hearts and minds
It won't get any easier as more time passes by
How do you warm two cold hearts when the sparks no longer fly
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, whose to blame
We were both responsible as keepers of the flame
Lack of communication, each of us on different terms
No fire present but we both felt burnt
Now our lives are cold, empty and dry
Where do we seek the warmth of shelter when the sparks no longer fly

MOTHER ANNA

What wouldn't I have done
for Mother Anna when daddy left home,
and abandoned his children...
like they were orphans forgotten and alone?

On that winter's evening
snowflakes danced cheerfully,
and the Christmas Tree shone brilliantly
as an angel fell and broke his wing;
silence descended to denote a great loss...
stirred by a commotion
that couldn't be stustained!
A wife lost her companion;
kids, an uncaring father who could never lead
or set an example for them to admire the most...

Underneath the bare oak tree,
by the brightness of the street lamps...
three young girls sobbed and wept sadly;
an airplane fled across the vast sky
illuminated by the splendid stars: 
they waved their trembling hands
to someone they would never see again,
was theirs a memorable cry?

What would have I done in the eyes of God,
if not help you carry half of the load:
denouncing with anger and grief
his selfishness and injustice?
Mother Anna,that pain was immensely mutual,
drawing us together to defy his action
which was thougthless and cruel;
Mother Anna,your wisdom indicated retribution...

Happy anniversary

Good morning 

Fourteen years ago today we said I do,
 fourteen years later I'm still madly in love with you,
you are my power when I fill run down,
 the one who lifts me up and erases my frown,
mother to my children, lover in my arms,
 my best friend ....the one behind all my charm,
you are my heart and soul and all my life's worth,
 and always my inspiration to move forth,
my girl, my woman, my lady, my dear,
 you dried my eyes and chased my fears,
you are my sun light and my nights bright star,
 the sparkle in my eye and my one and only by far,
my past, my present, and my future all rolled into one,
 and the way you smile at me....I see our lives have just begun,
without you I couldn't see all the wonders before me,
 so on this day with full of pride and loving respect happy anniversary.

how do I say.

How do I say I love you for the umpteenth time
 how can I tell you how much you mean to me,
I said forever and always,till death do us part
 said what you do to me,what you are to me,

After years of being side by side I miss you when we're apart
 after we argue I still want to call out your name,
the hardest of times,even the highest mountains we ever climbed
  I still get butter flies when I look in your eyes,

I wrote you poems ,letters drew you pictures left you notes
  signing them all with x's and o's, 
said this was are song,our place, our life
I held you,kissed you,loved you with the deepest intent,

to say your essential to me sounds programed
  how do I say I love you with out it sounding old,
to show you how years later I long to hold you in my arms
 I long to kiss your soft lips how do I tell you what all this meant,

A word that is used so much fills like it means so little
 I love you doesn't say with out you I couldn't be 
but how do I say I love you when your my world
 I love you...can it be just that easy?
