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.

The Day Her Garden Died

The day her garden died
Her husband was out of town.
She was all alone that night,
She had an unwelcome guest, 
He ravished her over and over til her inside was sore
She wanted to die that night, she was so ashamed,
and she never told a soul. 

The day her garden died
was the day she got the news
That the baby she carried inside of her 
Would never be born
For she had a fatal virus
The baby was now dead.

The day her garden died
Was the day her husband left her
He said she, should stay away from him
Her life was just too dim
That night she cried in agony
Her anguished gnawed within her 
And she couldn't stand the pain

The day her garden died
was the final straw, she was driven to madness
she lost everything, 
Now she's been put into confinement
for fear that she might kill herself
She wanted to take her own life
to end her misery...

My Husband

My Husband!
My Husband is the man of my dreams, my fantasies, and so much more. He can take my breath away with just a whisper of things to come. I can’t help but look at him and think my husband; the man of my life, forever mine.
My husband looks and acts professional as he lectures to a large group of people. They seem to linger on his every word learning as much as possible in the allotted time with him. He is smart and well-dressed but underneath a wild side that I know so well is there waiting to come out.
My husband playing while kayaking; splashing like only best friends and lovers would do. A kid at heart he shares his lunch and takes pictures to show his friends. He wants the world to know how fun it was and we plan to go again. So proud am I of my husband, best friend, and lover.
My husband has helped so many of my dreams come true. If you can dream it, then you can do it he would say. As frustration came, he my husband and fantasy would rescue me. My husband set my dreams soaring high as together we found a place the world could never touch us!
My husband is my soul mate and so much more that words can’t describe. Nothing can take him from me; for out of my dreams and into my life made special for me, my husband is everything I could ever want or need. Drawn to him somehow night and day our hearts beat as one. Together nothing is impossible as we share a love and bond that not even in death will we part. Our souls will hold one another forever!

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.

MOONLIT NIGHT WITH MY LOVE

The moon was bright as ever, I took my husband’s hand, I led him to the park, and we
stopped to play in the sand.

Long his memory faded, like a child was he, I watched as in wonder, he stopped and laughed
at me.

I took his hand once more and took him on our way, but he began to shout, he wanted to
stay and play.

I told him that I loved him; he said he loved me too, and in that tiny moment, I felt him
shining through. 

Once again it faded, and once again gone, I took his hand, my husband, and led him back home.

The Alzheimer’s he experienced was eating at his mind, but nothing in this world, could
force me to resign.

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

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.

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.

MOVING POEM

"Write your dreams," said Carolyn Kizer,
(She, the wiser of our workshop fools.)
New rules for us, so I rise from bed, 
still cordoned in sleep to record this one 
of many in which you star, now far 
away, to help you pack, knowing you'd be 
back always, from where without me,
time took you.  In the midst of this, 
you turned to embrace and enter me 
with such ferocity of passion as was your 
fashion, anyway; the door shut against all 
comers, no pun intended,  until our first-
born knocked and entered as he did 
that February day so long ago, and when 
you were gone, he said, "I never thought 
of you as lovers," and I said, laughing, 
"How did you think we got you? by 
divine design and direct intention. " 
Husband of late, you attend me now, 
it seems, only in  the parallel 
universe of dreams.

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.

Boyfriend

This was not what I planed
It was never my intention
I went to see a concert with my friend
Along with his cute cousin

This is not something I’m used to
But I went to take you for a run
My amazement for you
Caught your attention

Yes I do know your name
I love you to death
You are my experimental gain
Relax, its human nature

It’s not what nice boys do
But we’re not all good
In fact we’re quite wicked
It’s hard to behave

Parents say that’s so wrong
Wrong to love someone
Someone who is gay
Gay is what I am

Without You

If I was granted just one wish
A wish that might come true
I’d wish with all my heart and soul
For yesterday and you
If only I could turn back time
I’d go back to the start
If only you could hold me 
While I slowly fall apart
Questions left unanswered
So many words unsaid
Letters that I wrote will now 
Forever go unread
Why you went I’ll never know...or 
Why you had to die...or
Why you had to leave me
Why you never said goodbye
Looking to my future
All I see is pain and sorrow
Without you I’m shattered
Without you there’s no tomorrow
Without you I’m so alone
I don’t know where I’m bound
Without you I’m lost…
Without you I can’t be found
However dark the nights
I’m told the sun will rise again…but
How can I see sunshine
When my world’s so full of pain
Please don’t leave me here alone
Please kiss away my fears
Lee, I need you with me
Please come home and dry my tears
Hold me hun, just one more time
The way I used to know
I need to feel you here
I’m just not ready to let go
I miss your face..your smile..your touch
I miss your many charms
Days are long ..my nights are cold
Not being in your arms
But ...what I miss the most is when
I look at you and see
The love I know you're feeling
When you’re looking back at me
I know I must be strong now
For this mountain I must climb
But how do I survive without
The love of my life time
You wasn’t just my husband
But my friend and lover too
And no one in this world 
Will ever take the place of you..


For Lee...the love of my life..
I will miss you forever

Your wife...Bree x

Through the Years

I know I had to let you go
To be with God above
But one thing I will always have, forever 
Is your love
It’s been there through our ups and downs
Through smiles and laughter too
Through good and bad, through tears and fears
Our love remained so true
Through the years when things were tough
Or anything went wrong
Together we would work it out
Together we stood strong
Through the years you cared for me
You loved me every day
Through the years when I got lost
You helped me find my way 
Through the years when I was sad
You held me while I cried
Through the years, you’ve been my love
My strength, my rock, my guide
Sometimes when I'm all alone
I close my eyes and pray
That God will give you back to me
Just for one more day
So I could tell you one more time
How much I love you so
So I could hold you just once more
Before I let you go
I miss you every morning
Every night and every day
I’d give all my tomorrows
For just one more yesterday
I always knew how blessed I was
To have you in my life
Always I will wear your ring
I’ll always be your wife
I know I must be strong now 
For this mountain I must climb
To face a world without the man
Who always will be mine
I know you’re always here with us 
Our children feel it too
And no one else will ever have 
The love we gave to you
I know you're up in Heaven 
And to God, you now belong
But part of you stays here..
For in your sons…you still live on..

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.

I'll Never Get Over You

If only I had seen it coming 
But I never knew
The day before you left me
I had one more day with you
If only I could turn back time
And bring back yesterday
If only I could tell you
All the things I need to say
If only I could hold you close
And kiss you just once more
If only I could see you smile 
As you walk through that door
Walking down this lonely road
Lost, alone and sad
Holding onto memories and dreams 
That we once had
I need you here to guide me 
For I know I’ll lose my way
Without you I’ll crumble 
Without you I’m not ok
I still don’t understand the reason 
Why you had to leave
I don’t know how to deal with this
I don’t know how to grieve
Looking in the mirror
I still see you in my eyes
And always I will love you
Because true love never dies
Everything I feel inside
Gets stronger everyday
The love that’s in my heart for you
Will never fade away
Everything we shared
And all the memories made together
Will live within my heart and soul
They'll stay with me forever
As long as there is night and day
As long as skies are blue
As long as stars still shine so bright 
I’ll never get over you...

We.Quit.

We fuss. We fight.
Can't get this right.
I swear I'm done and try to leave,
But I can't. I want you here with me.

You say we're done, that I'm crazy,
But still you never actually leave.
Yet somehow, nothing's better than this.
Through everything, we just can't quit.

A Day Vs. A Lifetime

A day in love with my very best friend:
That's all I was given.
Then,
Straight out of Heaven,
God sent me an angel instead.
He sent me a lifetime of love til the end.
Thank you for that day.
Thanks for going away.
Now, I can smile and say,
"Thank you, God, for a day of pain,
And for the love of a lifetime that followed."

He

He reached into my downward spiral of solitude, wrapped himself around me completely, assimilated with my very being, and became the wings I needed. He was right on time...and so was the One who sent him (as always, because I am one of His favorites, as you know). So, here he is...a daily (favorite) part of my life, the grown-up part I look forward to, as reliable as the sunrise...sex without touching...a slo-o-o-o-o-o-o-w mind loving. How he did it, I'll never understand. It's like he took two mirrors and held them up to my heart...you know what happens when you do that...the image repeats itself infinitely. He = me x's infinity. I can only hope to compliment his existance, for his equal I will never be...never his other half...but to be the cosigner to all that he is would be enough. If I don't spend the remainder of this lifetime with him, I will certainly seek him in the next. He is my destiny, and as of this moment, I step forward and claim him. I am no longer falling down. He compels me to FALL UP

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

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

Once again I am stuck in that place
The one where my heart is filled with hurt and hate
I know your Lieing by the look on your face
Only thing to do is have falth

You use me and abuse me year after year
Now i find her number in front of me
I cry but don't let you see the tears
It would not matter you only see what you want to see

You say it was nothing just talking thats all
She dose not mean anything to you anyway
Is that why you only text and not ever call
I do not trust what you say becase you threw my trust away

You say it was all her fault she started it
For nine long months you lied about everything
I do not belive you not one bit
I do not want the pain you bring

So have you fun play your games
I am done with it all
I do not want to hear her name
Just remember the day will come you want my call

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. . . 


								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.

Definately (Love)

He gave me a kiss with his eyes.
He, using his smile, held me wrapped so tight.
He brought me joy beyond words because he used none,
Made me sing to music without a song.
"But how?" You might ask me.
"Was it magic?" Maybe.
"Love?" Definately.
"Or could it all be a dream?"
Um...possibly?
But, no! It couldn't have been!
You weren't me when I was with him,
When he kissed me with his eyes,
When my knees went weak and I felt I could fly,
When I,
With all of my inhibitions gone,
Sang to music without a song.
So, was it a dream?
No, but love? Definately.

NO OTHER THOUGHT FOR ESCAPE

An infamous thief
lived a restless life,
looking out for those
vigilant, shrewd cops;
his crafty hands pulling out
those tools out of the box,
to feed that ego so imprudent:
would he never be caught...
when his instincts coudn't predict?

Escorted to the court-room, 
in hand-cuffs and chains,
he faces the harshest judge
of the In-God-We-Trust-Country...
a female judge who's fair but firm,
and yet so unsympathetically angry;
and she like a fearless preacher warns,
" Whoever thinks has a right
to steal, rob, kill or disturb the peace...
must be punished accordingly to the crime! "

All he wanted was an easy flow of money,
dirty money without a trace of sweat;
and he acted like the richest man of the county...
flashing it around and feeling great!
Did he ever foresee an end to that bliss,
how could he not be harmed by his own mischief?

In the coldest cell, he sits on the sheetless bed...
frowning upon an unsuccessful scheme:
if he were able to bend each bar with those hands,
unlock each door and sprint to freedom...
it would be the end of his loneliness and boredom;
but when reality sets in, he returns to being sad!    

Years and many more years without a voice...
he will spend writing letters to his family,
missing out on holidays and birthdays...
repenting of his greedy and wicked ways
and allowing no other thought for escape;
pain, isolation and tolerance within those walls...
will teach the hardest lesson for his sake:
to make good choices and overcome his misery!!

Widow

Widow:

The oceans black waves cascade like rolls of dark silk onto the land and the salt mixes with the air fiercely, she can feel the texture brush across her rosy cheeks as her distressing eyes gaze outward.

“The sea, the sea is a horrible thing. It’s a cold, unforgiving mistress indeed. Women give their men to tread her harsh alluring waters and she sends back headstones with john doe markers. The sea covets mariners and never lets them go. She holds them hostage in her quaking current then cradles their voyage in her massive arms and with one monstrous hug she sends them to the oceans sandy floor below.

The sea, the sea is bitter and made of morbid intentions. Just like my grandfather, father, and younger brother my husband has been stolen by the sea. But alias, I will not cry because the tears my body weeps remind me of her heartless salty water. Destined or cursed I have been marked a widow, A window by the sea.

In your pocket

All my life I’ve been hurt,
And have felt the breaking pain inside.
Everyday I would search,
But always had to hide.

Then one day, as I sat in the dirt,
Lose all love and hope combined.
All alone I sat in that dirt,
Then you came and stood beside.
Assured I no longer had to hurt.
Now, in your pocket is where my heart will reside.

No more will I hurt!
Never will I feel any pain!
You’ve put an end to my search,
And I’ll never hide again.

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)

Love Me

Love me now
Love me today

Wait not, 
for tomorrow
Tomorrow waits, 
today waits not!

Let me know, today,
you love me
show me, today,
you will love me, tomorrow

Let today be the beginning,
of tomorrow, 
let it be the beginning,
of always and for ever

Let me hear, today,
in the warmth of your breath,
in the rhythm of your heart;
you love me, today,
and will, tomorrow, 
beginning today

Let me see, today, 
in your quiet countenance, 
in the flame of your eyes,
bright as lightening,
on a rainy night,
yet tender,
as a gentle flame;
like a candle in the wind,
with a guardian angel,
watching over it;
holding back the wind

Let me feel, today,
your love, soothing, 
as the morning sun

Let me hear, today,
your love,
rolling off your tongue,
flowing from your lips, 
to my heart;
in the melody of your voice,
sweet and gentle,
as a breeze on a mountain top,
in a quiet autumn night,

Let it flow, today,
gentle as a quiet river,
running deep and steady

I mind not, if it comes,
a mighty rushing wind,
only not a trade wind,
here today, gone tomorrow

I mind not, if it is hot,
molten lava, 
from the volcano top,
only boiling slowly

When it cools, 
may it not, 
turn into a stumbling block,
not a rolling stone

But a cornerstone,
stable and able,
weathering the elements,
enduring time, 
through today, 
till tomorrow;
for eternity

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

OH, MARIANNA GRAZIA!

Oh, Marianna Grazia...
was my friendly neighbor,
a lovely lady in her eighties!
She became a widow when her
husband died of a brain tumor,
he was a sailor of many oceans;
how evident was the sadness
of Marianna Grazia!


She had a Grand Piano, made of cherry oak,
not covered with a speck of dust, and smiling
she played an improvisation with style; 
and it depended on her mood! The rays of sunlight
entered diagonally and rested on it, while
her feeble fingers played the same, harmonic melody;
and her hubby liked to hear those notes enthusiastically...
that's how I remember Marianna Grazia at her best!


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
went to church every Sunday,
and passing by my gate, she always said
hello, and asked how things were going! 
She gave every kid on the block candy
and flowers she grew in the back-yard;
oh, I miss how you hummed that song... 
oh, Marianna Grazia!


Today I walked by her house,
the Venetian blinds were closed at noon,
I was overtaken by a sudden gloom;
her youngest daughter approached me
and mutterred very grieving words,
" My mom has passed away in a tragic way,
she slipped and fell, and hit the cement;
she passed out as blood gushed from her forehead."  


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
never will I have another conversation
about her experience in Normandy, 
and the stories of a nurse during World War II,
were as inspirational as her vocation!
Oh, Marianna Grazia...
look down below and wave gracefully;
life is not as everlasting as that love given by you,
oh, Marianna Grazia!

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.

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!

There Are Sounds of Ancient Thunders
There Are Sounds of Ancient Drummers
        Calling … Brave Warriors

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry

Please Rescue Us, From The Kingdom of The Gun …

And Prophecy Is Marching – Listen, All Who Arms Bear
Warriors, Must Beat War Weapons Into Plowshares            ( Isa. 2: 4 )

How Can Flesh and Blood, Mortal-Men, Be So Fearless, I Wonder
Are They Strengthened By Duty, Love and Honor
Facing Danger, Death and Being Torn Asunder
Sacrificing All, As A Fallen Soldier …

           Courageous Warrior …

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

A Hard Mix Between Heaven and Hell

There is a place where few have been
No beginning and no end
A place where I am prepared to go
They say you reap what you sow
I have done my share of very bad things
I flew home to piss on my ex-wife\'s grave
Drinking, smoking, lots of lust and sin has helped me come out of my shell
I am experiencing a hard mix between Heaven and Hell
Practicing Witch Craft one step away from a human sacrifice
I could feel the blood in my veins turn to ice
My life has been a twist and turn affair, never a straight line
If I were to ask you are you dark or do you shine
Nobody is holier than thou, so stop the fake front
Come clean with the bad things you have done
Do a gut check and you will be able to tell
How potent  is your shot will be of Heaven and Hell
There is chess board in everyone\'s life and we are all pawns
Just which side is your bread buttered on
Do gooders, most are sinners behind closed doors
Money is the root of all evil, yet churches ask people to give more
A percentage of your income to make the preachers rich
They have no interest in you, yet you are one dollar away from sleeping in a ditch
Sinners openly display their intentions in life
Wife cheats on husband because husband cheats on wife
Go ahead and pray for forgiveness for all your daily sins, another trip to the well
Here, the bar is open, here's your hard mix of Heaven and Hell
Catholic Priests molesting alter boys, they will definitely face the heat
Is there forgiveness for them to reach their Heavenly retreat
Where do you fit in with the grand master scheme of things, no one can tell
Everyone will be able to place their order for their shot of Heaven and Hell

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?)

Forsaken Eurydice

[Satyr]
A quick game is all it will be
I can tell you can hear my shouts and screams from forest 
Your home it beckons thee
Why won't you come and play with me?
 
Why cant you cure her?
The venom isn't too deep
If you could awaken her once
Cant you do it again
 Did sorrow blind you?

Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee
Why I not could listen to the dread king
All the life to you I could bring
I had to look back with eyes of dismay
Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee 
Music no more will there be 
For I have forsaken my Eurydice

He will never listen 
No is all you will hear
Death is always the killer of love
Death will always win
 
 [Hades] 
Go back to your kingdom
My words have been proclaimed
Your music will not be able to charm

Why don't you please
Give him his love
He went this far in vainI
f he cannot see her blank face
Wont why you please

Only without your eyes
Throughout the dark realm
Looking back will forsaken your Eurydice

All the life to you I could bring
I had to look back with eyes of dismay
Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee 
Music no more will there be
 For I have forsaken my Eurydice

Sun-Sweet

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet,

I plucked your stem not for your taste,
but for the way you looked at me
when I strolled by on harvest day,
as you hung from flourished citric tree.

Sun-sweet

I wouldn't dream of hurting you.
Why must one peel such wholesome love
to know if what they've picked taste true?

Sun-sweet

The dawn approaches on swift wings
with morning's lively kiss in tow.
Such warmth is worthy of our praise.
Will you come with me to grace its glow?

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet,

I'll lift you up towards open sky.
Please promise me that you will keep
the fragrance that you hold alive.

Let's bask in caramel rays of heat,
forevermore

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet!

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

AN ENDLESS RIVER KEEPS FLOWING

SLOW DANCING YOUR ALL OVER MY MIND

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.

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!

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 2)

These nights that he told me
He had to work late
He was out having drinks
With secretary Kate!

She drove through the night
Past the old Starlight Inn
Where she noticed Jack's car
As he wallowed in sin

Stalking the rooms
Wife crept like a mouse
With secret intentions
Of shooting the louse

In room number three
She peeked through the crack
And naked as a jay
Was her old hubby Jack

Through the half parted drapes
Young Kate flitted near
While handing her Jack
A cold glass of beer

Fuming with rage
Clare kicked in the door
Screaming at Jack
To get down on the floor

Kate jumped from the bed
And landed on Clare
Punched at her stomach
And pulled at her hair

The two women scuffled 
As Jack grabbed his shoes
Picked up his pants
And reached for his booze

He raced for his car
And drove off in the night
And they heard him exclaim
As he drove to the bar

One woman's enough
Two's going too far!

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
{Oceans between us}

God please believe me i'm dyeing with out her love don't deceive me 
Because i cant live with out her. My heart is so numb your warm embrace
Will put a smile on my down and out face.

Your far away but my love for you 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 can be this strong girl it wont be to long....

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.

the old oak

Verse 1 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
There’s a bridge down the way crossing a river that’s wide 
And the green hills roll forever, it’s a beautiful sight 
With a backdrop of mountains their tips covered white 

Verse 2 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Where I carved out our names with a small pocket knife 
And the letters we etched in a timeless old tree 
Say that I’ll always love you long past eternity 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart 

Verse 3 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
And a single headstone marks the place where you lie 
A chair by the side of your last resting place 
Which I sit in for hours and just stare into space 

Verse 4 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Tended by a lost soul who hasn’t much time 
It won’t be long now and we’ll be one again 
There’s been so much pain since I lost you my friend 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart

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)

The Invitation

If you had just married a wife
Then were invited to The Banquet
The greatest wedding feast ever to be told
Would you say that you can't go
Or accept the royal invitation
And take with you
The one you now have to hold

Our Heavenly Father requests the honor 
Of your presence at the marriage of His Son
To the Bride arrayed in righteousness; blessed are those invited 
The wedding banquet is ready; will you come?  (Chorus)

If you had just purchased land 
Then received The Wedding Invitation
From the King to His palace of gold
Would you go look to His interests
Or ask to be excused
To see the field 
In which you had been sold

If you had just gained merchandise
And were invited to The Dinner
To sit with the righteous and the bold
Would you refuse the King's table
Or hurry first at His request
Then let your business
Multiply one hundred fold

(Chorus)

[Bridge]
If you give your regrets or do not respond
You will not receive the garments of fine linen
You will not taste His banquet like the many who are called
Only to the Few will the place of honor be given
And His house shall be filled when they are compelled
From the highways and byways and even from the hedges
From the streets and alleys they're accepted and chosen
For wedding garments and to eat the Bread of Heaven

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.

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.

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?

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


Details | Ballad | |

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?
