Shattered Glass

How do I tell the truth without telling a lie? Spill my guts and walk away Leaving someone else to clean up my mess I threw the rock that broke the glass Now to kiss and tell and wish you well You had all the best and I'm left with the rest Just a coward hiding in the fray Trying to live up to seeing the sunny day Worried that light might shine through the shattered glass and find that I was the one who broke my heart in two

The Answer?

What is the meaning of life and death?
Why do some grow old & babies die before their first breath?
Where is God and why have faith?
When will there be justice and why speak the truth?
What is war about and why do men hate?
Why do some feel true love and others receive nothing but heartache?
When we die, do we finally know the answers?
or do we simply cease asking?

The Perfect Way Home

It's winter's evening, I am driving home.  The bare trees whisper my vulnerability like a secret to the sky.  I've come again to an all too familiar crossroads; the one of dreams and fear.  I stop at the traffic light waiting but I am lost within a cold ocean of myself.  Overhead on the telephone wires, a flock of blackbirds have gathered.  The electric current keeps their toes snug and warm as they chatter; eavesdropping on my thoughts.  I wonder why the birds have chosen this particular place with all its confusion?  Perhaps they are my muse, my witnesses and they wait for a change in the signal too.  With a slight ripple in the wind and the light, their wings lift up in unison and I am lifted too.  I have no need to tarry; I turn towards the fading sun.  My heart is carried by a light haven.  Inhaling a deep breath of me, I pass a billboard that tells me to have courage.

Within Blue Eyes

She sings sweetly a song borne of love She is a child of God and the mother of doubt she'll push and shove then hide as she dances all about lost in the wane of soft moonlight A powerful beauty contained within blue eyes, a golden stare of burning fire raging on starry night She's an essence of what cannot be restrained a shadow flirting deep into the foggy mist She's been waiting for a long slow kiss to set her free not realizing she's already there

Silence of the Night

Now the moon is shining bright I am cradled in silence of the night Mother of heaven in darken blue curls My dreams are obscured within your pearls glimmering in an otherwise ebony sky Encouraged by a melodic lullaby of distant and reverberating thunder I fade fast to the deepest of slumber If by the coming morning light as she yields gracefully in her flight Given her one final epiphany, Will she set my dreams free?

Haunted Memories

The cold wind blows against two warm hearts Leading one heart astray, the other one broken Don't ask the reason why As answers echo a truth unspoken Where once there was a beautiful garden bursting into life Now lies barren ground cold and heavy with strife Dreams escaping into thin air like clouds passing in the sky Reaching to hold them captive By never saying goodbye The wounded spirit floats in circles round upon her wings Carrying heaviness in her heart to the pain that she brings Forever jaded by seeing love feign through a stained glass windowpane Pray one day a sweetened breeze Comes and calms these haunted memories

Clouds and Roses

Ever touch a fallen star
so close it burns
from a way down wish
of living sleep,
sounding out
you are completely
far apart
from the deep of what
was the center of your heart?
Blame fate
Drink it down as love
Name it happiness
and choose
all there is to gain and lose
Oh yes, choose...
one by one
the secrets of your ruse
Pile them up as stones
one upon another
until there is a mountain sky
that poses as silent lullaby
for the truth 
along this garden wall
so filled to the brim
with clouds and roses
I remember you
as seeds of pain
bits of love
and fluffs of dreams
planted within the cracks
of my soul
and I pray to God
for a perfect rain

Breathing Gratitude

May we look not to defeat Bounty laid upon our feet Seek instead your highest power Quickly now, its zero hour A solace for ugly scars Cut in fear behind jaded bars Love breaks free our prison cell Giving peace a place to dwell Begin by blessing to come awake With first breath one does take Admit the beauty for just the day Bow down, give thanks and pray

Child's Dawn

As the darkness yields to the dawn to deliver the heart from any storm Of the blackness of the night so long Where my fears and sorrows do belong The new morn is a sigh of a brilliant song The child awakens with the light Ready to believe in the day’s warming sight To live and love with open arms And have no fear of any harms There is hope and charity in the new day Dreams and innocence are here to stay Sun sweet sun Come on, have some fun Chase the night away so the child can learn to play!

Dreams Weep

The bridge of friendship crumbles
over a river of hurt and pride 
Two souls stumble 
alone across an empty great divide 

A kingdom full of promise is forever lost
by the choice to tear down and rip apart
Kindness could have been the only cost
along with love for the other's beautiful heart

When death comes knocking on the door
with the hour of judgment at God's hand
Was it all about keeping score?
Or will they finally seek to understand?

Before another day comes to an end
Learn from this foolish pair
Give thanks to your precious friends
For the many treasures that they share

There is no saving what is burned in fire
We lose what we try too hard to keep
Fate has her own secret desire
Dreams weep as the angels go to sleep
