Brother Watches Over Me

My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping
He cradles me close, afraid I will wake
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping. 

I want to talk, tell him what my mind is seeping
But laggard thoughts are still opaque
My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping.

To hear his voice soothes my core from weeping
Freeing tears that could flood a lake
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping. 

He thinks I am awake when eyes are peeping
A sudden movement would be a mistake
My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping.

From dawn to darkness my mind is creeping
Along with sounds my voice does make
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping. 

As he holds me, my dark eyes are sweeping
Tightly he contains me nearer so not to break
My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping.

Your Arm Around My Shoulder

I rest peaceful, knowing you are there, my brother.
I will never need to feel alone,
with your arm, always around my shoulder.

Our boyhood antics, I will always treasure.
Should the day come, I feel the need to roam,
I rest peaceful, knowing you are there, my brother.

Standing together, life's bumps we will weather.
A better friend, I will have never known,
with your arm, always around my shoulder.

We are bound to get into trouble together,
as we pass each of life's milestones.
I rest peaceful, knowing you are there my brother.

Should I chance to stumble and falter,
I will look upon you as my cornerstone.
With your arm, always around my shoulder.

With all we'll share through the adventures
and the paths we will take when we're grown.
I rest peaceful, knowing you are there, my brother,
with your arm, always around my shoulder.

Wake-up, Wake-up and Let's Play

Here is my newborn brother to celebrate the day!
Together we'll splash around in mud spots eating tater tots.
Wake-up, my brother, wake-up and let's play!

There's no time for a baby snooze for the sun we shall lose!
I'll have you hold the phone books while I get a cookie from the high nooks.
Here is my newborn brother to to celebrate the day!

Slip 'n' slides and kiddie pools, otter pops and pizza!
You have no idea the magic things hidden beyond your eyelids!
Wake-up, my brother, wake-up and let's play!

You do like sleeping, don't you? This we'll have to fix.
Maybe mom can whip you up a snack of caffeinated Chex-Mix.
Here is my newborn brother to celebrate the day!

We will certainly rule the planet together one day, you and I.
As King Brothers: Your Highness Who Does Stuff and Your Highness Who Doesn't.
Wake-up, my brother, wake-up and let's play!

Yawwwckk, now I'm sleepy, move your teeny arm a smidgen.
Maybe tomorrow when we're both awake we'll catch a pigeon. 
Here is my newborn brother to celebrate the day!
Wake-up, my brother, wake-up and let's play!

(Zzzzz...)

Reunion

Brother, brother, sister, we meet together.
The vigil flame of childhood burned so fast.
Mother, Father, your spirits live in storms of stars forever

The season of our joy creates the weather
July reunion eclipses any darkness of the past.
Brother, brother, sister, we meet together.

Family, our bond, it is a treasure.
Dad, then Mom died—souls spun, tornadoed, dropped and smashed.
Mother, Father, your spirits live in storms of stars forever

An alchemy of alcohol and drugs infused our pleasure,
Consumed our innocence, trust and security shaken, terrified, harassed. 
Brother, brother, sister, we meet together.

Armored we survived the wounds and anger
Bruised by a god and goddess, confused by their caring in contrast.
Mother, Father, your spirits live in storms of stars forever.

Love saved us, it is so tender
Its enduring strength so vast---
Sister, Brothers, breathing separate and together
Mother, Father, your spirits live in storms of stars forever.

MERLION CITY 6

A FOND TRIBUTE:
(TO OUR OLD-GUARD LEADER)


Visionary leader who forged our way
In your twilight years kind humour attends
A little red-dot that works sanguine play


Once upon a time history did stray
A city state found dire straits in harsh trends
Visionary leader who forged our way


A man's decisive stance framed light of day
A vision aligned our bold action plans
A little red-dot that works sanguine play


It's easy to ask but so hard to pay
Our modern day culture defies intent
Visionary leader who forged our way


No one can truly understand your sway
Our stress and strain and ample discontent
A little red-dot that works sanguine play


A bright new team helms the future array
May fate be kind as we go round the bend
Visionary leader who forged our way
A little red-dot that works sanguine play
